Scence: RJ and I are on the phone. RJ in Vancouver me at home.

RJ: Have you decided on your route to The Lake?
K: I've Googled it and it says to go through Montreal.
RJ: There could be traffic or construction. Why don't you go the other way through Hawksbury.
K: I don't know that way very well and I've never driven it by myself.
RJ: You'll be fine. You'll know it when you see it.
K: I don't know. I don't think we've ever taken the same way twice.
RJ: You'll be fine. At that one point there is a McDonalds and a golf course on the one side.
K: What?
RJ: You know were we turn.
K: You're giving me 'RJ' type landmarks and not 'Karen' type.
RJ. Oh come on. There is that intersection that we get to and you always say "Turn left here, I know where I am now."
K: You're kidding me?? I can't use those directions, I'll get lost for sure.
RJ sighs : Go through Montreal then.
K: We are so different.

Can't be bought in a store

My best friend Jenn's tumour has shrunk from 5x4cm to 3x3cm with only 3 chemo treatments.

She's kickin' cancer's butt!

I couldn't have asked for a better birthday gift.

Wanted: DJ that likes music

Scene: Wedding in Chicago, I have been selected to give the DJ our table's song request

K: Hi! are you taking requests?
DJ: Yup
K: We'd like to hear B52's Love Shack

The DJ grimaces as thought I've just pulled out 3 nose hairs

K: What? Did someone already request it? Do you not have the song?
DJ: I'd rather shoot myself than play that song.

Isn't Love Shack on the wedding reception top 25 list? It's not like I asked for the Chicken Dance! It's him not me right?
