Not totally clueless, I guess!

Lately I’ve started fixing my mechanical problems myself (as opposed to calling my brother-in-law, who can fix anything).  It’s cool to be creative, and I really like problem-solving a lot.  And it’s not about pride, but more about being self-reliant and motivated to tackle problems by myself if I can.  I do, however, believe in enlisting the help of experts when necessary, as it would be unwise to attempt to do things that are out of my capacity and skills.  But so much of the time we can do stuff ourselves if we just take the time to learn and try!

When it comes to handy stuff,

I’m not totally clueless, I guess!

“Self-deprecating humor is a powerful tool in that it can help demonstrate our humanity and bring comic relief,

but still we artists need to take ourselves seriously enough to produce good art.”

~KathBath

(more to come on this idea)

Oh and by the way, this has not been the first time

that I’ve compared myself to John Mayer (duh!).

AND IT WON’T BE THE LAST!

Still waiting for that thunderbolt of blasphemy for the comparison.

Maybe it won’t be coming after all…

🙂

Thanks for help on this one TC.  TC Wilkinson.  TC Williams…

READERS:

1)  Do you use self-deprecating humor?  Why or why not?

2)  If you do use it, what are your experiences thus far?

3)  What are the appropriate limits to self-deprecating humor?

The 2 most handsome Mormons in the world:

Mitt Romney is my all-American boy (a twist on Tom Petty’s famous song!),

but  President Dieter F. Uchtdorf is my international-love.

PS.  You’ll definitely want to click on that “International Love” link.  It’s a good one (it ain’t Pit-bull by the way!)

PPS.  This post was inspired by a TEXT MESSAGE exchange I had with Tyler once…

I may be single, I may not know exactly what I’m doing with my life….

but at least I have THIS GUY for a brother-in-law!Image

Seriously, if he can’t fix it, cook it, grill it, make it, NO ONE CAN…

I really wish we could clone Tyler X 100 and make a lot of single women happy.

Okay, this is starting to sound like I’m hitting on Maizy’s squeeze, which I’m NOT!

Just am so grateful he married my sissy and is in the Wilkinson clan now

What do “bird” and “ring” have in common?

THEY BOTH ARE FINGERS!

And sometimes, Tyler kills 2 birds with 1 stone….

Is it any wonder?

Screen shot 2013-09-03 at 11.29.49 PM

I love my sista, yes I do.  But some days it’s hard not to be jealous.  Scratch that, ALL days it’s hard not to be jealous.  Now I’m not saying that I don’t have anything going for me, but hermana has a hot husband who could catch fish with his teeth, a great job inserting catheters and stuff like that, and has generally made a very good transition into this adult life.

And me? No husband (yet?).  Not quite set on this whole career thing.  And even though this blog has been a HUGE part of my journey of self-discovery and expression, still sorting out life.

So really.  Is it any wonder (Kat is keen on Keane!) I gave her this look (on her wedding day no less)?

Image

AND my hair didn’t look that cute that day.  Darnie.

*read into the black and white symbolism in every way possible way you can and you will likely be correct….

*this picture was NOT staged in any way…

READERS!

How do YOU deal with feelings of jealousy/inadequacy

when it comes to your family members’

accomplishments, achievements, etc.?

Don’t do the death look at a wedding.  Just don’t.

Hope for an ugly duckling….

Disclaimer:  The title refers to me!  I would never in a million years call someone else ugly (especially not my dear sister Maizy).  Just ain’t my style 🙂 And I also know I’m not really ugly, either. Enough ado.  Proceed:

If this girl:

can turn into this in a few short years:

Image

then maybe there’s still hope for this girl:

🙂

*everyone loves a good makeover-that’s what romantic comedies are made for…

*immodesty once again, will I ever learn?  I’M WEARING A TOWEL I SWEAR YOU JUST CAN’T SEE!

*fresh outta the shower makes my makeup look like AMAZING!

*juxtaposition of beauty and ugliness (is there a euphemism for this word? its kinda mean)

*that first pic was Maizy’s FB profile picture so I know she wouldn’t mind

He looks at her….

She looks at him….

They look at each other…

Image

and for just a moment, in this painful and entropic existence, all is right in the world.

and sometimes they even let me hang out with them too!
