"I'm Worse At What I Do Best"

When I was still living at home, my family would gather nightly for family dinners. My mother insisted that we sit around afterward and "talk." My mother is crazy, I assure you. Well, I've always liked the attention that absurdity gathers (as demonstrated by my waltzing into my physics classroom one morning and announcing that I didn't believe in gravity--turns out I do, but the look on the teacher's face was priceless). One thing I liked to do was inform my family that I wanted to be Kurt Cobain when I grew up. And this was post-1994. That was the start of an obsession.



Now picture him eating cornflakes.

I believe Kurt did eat cornflakes. Although he makes no mention of them in his songs. I believe this is because they are simply too dear to him.

Do you know what the best breakfast food is? Life cereal with chocolate milk. That is the food of the gods. I believe it is the only cereal served in heaven. Perhaps I will inform the rest of the ward of this at next month's fast and testimony meeting.

I still think he's hot. Minus the eye makeup.

To be honest, I plan on visiting the Kurt Cobain memorial while I'm here in Seattle. That and Bruce Lee's one too. I'd like to think they're both up in heaven right now, where Kurt plays the best version of Heart Shaped Box all day long, while Bruce continues to be the best philosophizer/ass-kicker the world has probably ever known.

Aaron: I dare you to preach the gospel of Life cereal over the pulpit. DARE.

Sam: Eyeliner or no, I'd take him. I'm still looking for a picture of him wearing his glasses in geek mode, though.

Justin: Godspeed to you. Being from Seattle, I'm sure you have impeccable taste in music. Pay homage to Kurt and Bruce for me, will ya?

I like to think it's the eyeliner that makes him hot. Kinda like Aaron, the new guy at Border's.

I suppose it's bad I've never heard of this guy in my life....but I do think he's hot, if that counts for anything.

Kurt Cobain was the lead singer of Nirvana until he ODed on heroin in 1994.

Actually, Senor Anonymous, I do believe it was the shotgun blast to the face that killed Kurt, more than the heroin. But that's just my opinion, I am not a forensic scientist nor do I play one on television. Instead most of my characters I portray end up being wacky or zaney neighbors. Though once I did play a vegetarian who fell of the wagon.

What am I, some kind of shallow little girl who posts pictures of attractive, famous men on her blog?

Sigh. Look what my public is doing to me.

Your Mom is NOT crazy. Gathering together as a family is what the prophets (and the Lord) have commanded us to do.
However, announcing that you want to follow a heroin addict might just count as crazy.
Also, points to Mom that she is always available, always kind and generous, omnipotent, thrifty, courteous, brave, clean, and reverent.
Has anyone called their Mom recently?
