for kristin

Today is my sister's birthday. In her honor, I will write a tribute of the things you probably do not know about Kristin......but should.
  1. She does not read my blog. She doesn't even hide the fact that she doesn't. I kind of love that about her.
  2. She writes like Walt Disney. It is very big. (you know my feelings about big). I don't think i've ever told her this before.
  3. In middle school I was once told, "if you ever grow up to look like your sister, then you'll be hot."
  4. Her first car was a huge, black Dodge Mirada and the steering wheel caught fire one time when she drove us to school. She would say "Mirada" really fast so people would think she drove a Miata instead. No one was fooled.
  5. She will cut in half every piece of chocolate in a Whitman's Chocolate Sampler to see what is on the inside instead of looking at the box lid. Then, she would mix up the chocolate, just to make me mad.
  6. I got my first job at the candy store in the Magic Kingdom just because that's where she had worked.
  7. Her middle name is "elizabeth" but to this day I still don't know if it's elizabeth with a "z" or elisabeth with an "s".
  8. She is impossible not to like. Everyone, everywhere, loves Kristin. I'm not even kidding.
  9. She's the only person in the world to fall asleep in a movie faster than I do.
  10. She probably doesn't know this, but she is my very best friend.

I read your blog today! The email with an easy to click link really helped. Jim says your being nice to say that I write like Walt Disney. He says "You just write messyhankYhank you, Ka-Ka.
I'll tune in more often-especially if it's about me.
Ok. Been trying for five minutes and I'm aggravated now b/c I cant figure out how to post this comment. I need training!

So sweet, baby girl! You are every bit as beautiful as Kristin! It is EliZabeth but it was supposed to be EliSabeth as in the Bible but I was too drugged to catch it until they told me that it was too late. It is still EliSabeth to me and only EliZabeth on my will and other important financial documents. (Boo for the state!) I LOVE it when you write!

You probably don't remember me, but when I went to Master's, I wanted to be you. However, I thought your birthday was in October, not that that makes a difference. happy belated birthday!

You were/are beautiful, even in our awkward middle school days when we became friends.
Ha! I just figured out that you and your sister used to have the same initials. That would be mighty convenient for monograms.
