Love and hurricanes...

You know you're obsessed with blogging when, on the way home from school, you're thinking of what you're going to blog about.

I just found out that the top keyword found on my blog was "love." That threw me off for a minute, until I realized that it's because of the way I write. I'm always, "I love sewing," "I love to read," "I love Cary Grant," or "I love double dipped chocolate pretzels." It sort of makes you think of how the word "love" is so overused now. But still, I hope it's obvious that I don't love new pajamas the same way I love people (although I do love new pajamas! Especially the ones at Kmart. I don't like Kmart, but they have the cutest pajama sets ever. They draw me like a magnet, not matter how many sets I already have).

The weather has been so dreary over the past few days...all rain and crazy wind. It's perfect weather for reading, though. The sky has been so grey that I wondered how the sun could possibly be up there. Today I got the new Switchfoot CD "Hello Hurricane." I am very impressed so far! It's much more rockish, upbeat, and hopeful than their past two CD's. And I think it's a huge improvement. I cannot dislike a CD that one of my favorite bands (Relient K, Switchfoot, Skillet) releases; it's just impossible. But there are some that take quite a while to grow on me, and that I still don't feel completely good about ("Oh! Gravity" was like that). "Hello Hurricane" is not like that at all. It's been lovely from the start. It put me in such a good mood that I laughed out loud at the cars that flew up behind me and rode my Beetle's bumper in the 25 mph zone. Yes, that good. So far my favorite is probably "Your Love Is a Song."

It seemed like there was something else that I wanted to talk about, but it's gone now. I seriously have to work on my novel now. If I get much further behind, it will probably become hopeless. I need like 10,000 words! I might have to resort to some tricks and even more terrible, awkward writing to meet my goals...

Until next time,
Kristin (missvintagegirl)
