Girl, put your glasses on, come listen to my song, and thank Ben Franklin you have them!

Glasses are weird.  Don’t get me wrong, they’re awesome!  But they’re weird.  Stop and think about it.  They consist of a frame holding together two circular pieces of glass that perch on your nose and are tucked behind your eyes to secure them on your head.  Pretty weird.  Know what else they are?  GENIUS!

Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States and a key participant in the American Enlightenment period (duh), is the mastermind who is historically credited as being the inventor of bifocals.  Hmm, I wonder if he had an inclination of just how massively important and critical his development would become.  Who would have ever thought that something that was very likely once incredibly hideous looking would spawn such a revolution, not only related to optometry, but also in the sense of fashion and self-expression?   Glasses have forever affected our global economy.  Wow, Ben Franklin was incredibly smart (understatement).  In so many ways, but even if all he ever did was invent glasses, that man would still be beyond brilliant.

I personally am really glad for glasses.  They make me look cute.  They make me look smart.  They make me look like an official scholar (but not in a pretentious way!).  Oh yeah, and they help me see!

Oprah Winfrey is not God.

ImageShe’s not Satan either.

Just sayin’

myth vs. experience

line of propriety

Yeah I would have a show like Oprah
I would be the host of everyday Christmas
Give Travie your wish list

*oh, and just so ya’ll know, it’s hard for me to over-emphasize how much I LOOOOOOOVE the music of Travie McCoy

Closing Thoughts:

I feel that many people today (quasi) worship Oprah Winfrey and look to her as the ultimate source of truth.  While I never wish to diminish the tremendous good she has done in the world, I proclaim that she is not a direct oracle of divinity, and that there are literal prophets who speak to and for God today.

PS.  Don’t be turned off that they are men and that these particular Brethren are all white.  I’ll address those issues later.  But don’t jump to conclusions.  The United States wouldn’t have a Constitution if it weren’t for smart white guys.  Just sayin’…

Democracy is veeeeeery rare…

as throughout the vast majority of history there has been a vicious cycle between anarchy and dictatorship.

ImageThe Constitution is AMAZINGLY AWESOME!


America is not perfect (duh!), but if I ever hear ANY of you insult this country as a whole, you will expose yourself to the wrath of a woman who is very passionate, very logical, and (probably) knows WAAAAAAY more than you do on the subject.

 

Just sayin’

I pledge allegiance to this flag.  And if that bothers you, then

THAT’S TOO BAD!

No it ain’t the only place on earth, but it’s the only place that I prefer.

And I am not a nationalist (not prideful like I think Toby Keith is sometimes), but I do love my country A LOT.

The glorious right of religious freedom

holds true for EVERYBODY.

And yet I still believe KNOW! that covenants (temple or “merely” baptismal) are not something to be taken lightly.  AT ALL.  Particularly if one is in the “public eye” (thanks, Tom Petty!)…

*intentional ambiguity is one of Katherine’s favorite tools (although truthfully I’m not being very ambiguous here)

This post might be borderline offensive with the juxtaposition of some of the people pictured.  Once again, I hope to spark discussion and thought without ever making my own OPINION explicitly and fully clear.

intentional ambiguity!

Ann Coulter is someone who Katherine believes gives conservativism a VERY bad name (for the most part).

Also, I believe very strongly that the teachings found within the structure and gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

can and will bring us lasting happiness.  Thus, I greatly value missionary work.

But I value religious freedom just as much.

Blink and you might miss that there are TWO pictures

of Natasha Bedingfield on this post.

Also, John Mayer is brilliant and has forever changed my life,

but he will be the first to tell you that he has at times had a very stupid mouth (read more about it here).

And Katherine would like to remind you that EVERY. SINGLE. PART. of this post serves a purpose (I don’t believe in fluff, remember?). 

Also, I try hard not to toot my own horn too much, but go on and count the number of allusions/references I made in this post………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

HOW MANY DIDJA FIND?

She’s Got a Way

She’s got a light around her

and everywhere she goes a million dreams of love surround her.

Yes, have seen the Billy Joel musical “Movin’ Out.”  It was good until the kinky dancing started (during this song if I remember correctly), and we all felt REALLY uncomfortable.  I’m all for the first amendment and the freedom of speech AND the freedom of dance, but keep your moves clean, ya’ll!
