that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

Disclaimer #1: I do NOT have a digital camera, these pictures are compliments of my Motorola Krzr K1 and that’s why they are poor quality.

Disclaimer #1.5: Download “Christmas Song” by Dave Matthews… it reminds me of the first Christmas that I [became for real] a Christian…my RA and another guy from youth in Calgary drove to our Christmas party to a super chill mix of Christmas music…and I had never heard it before. Disclaimer because it doesn’t resemble Jingle Bells or Boney M but it makes me feel that feeling again so do it.. and feel a little for me. It’s been over three years.

Disclaimer #2: Due to the lack of a digital camera, you will NOT be privy to pictures of my hair, my healthily-trimmed RAGING blonde hair. That’s right. Blonde. Well, I highlighted it with a really, almost platinum blonde and dark, ash brown lights as well (oxymoron, I know, but I don’t know what I would call the dark ones…is that what low-lights are?). Apparently I have ASH brown hair as my natural…a cross between blonde and brown and apparently it’s quite classy like Jennifer Aniston (this is the 4th hairdresser I have had that told me I have Jennifer Aniston-esque hair). I digress. I am a raging blonde and you don’t even get to see it.

Disclaimer #2: Due to the lack of funds (pray for me…it’s extremely, outta control tight right now), I cannot put decorations on my tree. Ergo, I am in the middle of fabricating a tin foil star (or kind of looks like both) to put on the top. But you get the jest of it from the camera phone picture.

Disclaimer #3: I woke up this morning, minding my own business and noticing that it was December 1 when I made my oatmeal, and cozied up on the couch, with the Christmas lights on the tree plugged in, a cup of instant coffee to do my devotions, when it started SNOWING. IN VICTORIA. IT IS SNOWING IN VICTORIA RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT NOW!! I went to the gym and everyone was incessantly grumbling and I was flying high (could be the caffeine from the instant coffee) and fired RIGHT UP about the snow! Granted, it’s not at all cold (by Calgary/Smithers standards) and the snow seems to apparate (That’s a Harry Potter term — means disappear) before it touches the ground. But wow wow wow… Kate and her raging blonde hair is extremely happy about this.

Disclaimer #4: I need gift ideas for my mom and dad, any thoughts?!

xox your Kate

One thought on “the best it’s gonna get

  1. Nice tree! I want to see your hair! And yes, they are called low-lites! Pretty cool! 🙂

    Good ideas for gifts:Umm… no ideas but when I think of giving things to people who already got most everything they can possibly have I go for the ‘experience’ ideas. Like write a poem for both of them… or create something that only you can for them. You know… You’re brilliant! I’m sure you’ll think of something.
