Q is for…

‘q’ is for quiet… which I am.  I don’t talk during movies or tv shows or Broadway plays.

‘q’ is for quick… which I am not.  For instance:  we talked about the Outbacks a couple posts ago.  Exactly 2 seconds after I took this photo I said, “Aw, MAN.  The gas tanks are on opposite sides!  That’s gonna mess me up when I drive that car.”  And the Boy said, “No, they aren’t, Kate.”  And I said, “Uh, YES they are.”  And the Boy said, “Um, no they aren’t, Kate.  Think about it.”   HEY.  You be nice to me.


‘q’ is for Quentin Tarantino… who, quite honestly, I just really do not get.  I know he’s a genius. I can see that through the fuzzy processing in my brain… but I just don’t get him.  I hope we can still be friends.

‘q’ is for queasy… which I get very easily if I ride in the backseats of cars or on rides that spin.  This didn’t happen to me until I was in college, but now you can bet money on it.

‘q’ is for quality… like this right here: a surprise this past March in a Belgium train station.  QUALITY. Smiling all day long, right here.  That’s me.

    I can’t believe I am the first to comment. I just saw the Sound of Music video last weekend…AWESOME!! I absolutely love organized and premeditated spontaneity. The gas tank thing…tee hee hee…we’re still friends.

    That is QUITE funny about the gas tanks. I would do exactly the same thing I’m sure of it!

    i knew you’d like the video! can you imagine if that had happened to us while in some train station during our European adventure! we would have been singing and dancin’ with them!

    I saw that video at my mom’s house! I showed it to the girls tonight; they weren’t impressed. I guess if you’re used to seeing princesses dancing in fancy ballgowns, high kicks in train station is merely a yawn. I, however, couldn’t stop watching. Or singing. And I clapped at the end.
