What does Kitty have to say?


 


Kitty's Presidential Library

Today's the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library.  It's huge--more than 225-thousand square feet, the biggest of all the presidential libraries.  That's 100 times bigger than my house, and a heckuva lot of space to fill.

Now I know that I'll never be president, but I wouldn't mind having a presidential library some day. In fact, I've got a lot of important papers that I believe future generations should have a chance to see. 

Here is just a partial list.

1. Old grade school folders, like the one pictured above. In the 1970's, it was okay to have a sticker advertising beer at school.

2. A 6th grade report on "The Unexplained of Ancient Times." This handwritten report spent a lot of time on the theories of Erich Von Daniken, which said that the pyramids and other such structures were built by aliens.

3. An unfinished novel in a blue spiral notebook. Having just read The Outsiders, I have around 80 pages of a story about a gang of hoods in New York who find and adopt a baby.  The gritty realism is astounding.

4. A folder filled with newspaper clippings about the death of Elvis Presley. Glued to typing paper, and nicely faded.

5. The TV script I wrote for the TV show Fame  when I was in college. It was a project that was supposed to be completed over an entire semester.   I wrote it in 3 days. 

6. My autobiography, written in 8th grade. It was supposed to be around 15 pages long, but at that point I'd only made it through kindergarten. Including photos, it was more than 50 pages.

7. A wide assortment of birthday cards, including some sent to my parents when I was born.

8. Programs from junior high school football games I attended.

9. Copies of my junior high school newspaper, The Patriot Press. I was a key contributor, often writing the horoscopes and word search puzzles.
 
10.  A letter from the people with the TV show Hoarders, offering to help me cut through the clutter. No wait...I haven't received that yet.

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
