I Have a Date with Justin Timberlake Tomorrow

Hello there. I'm still here! Despite the crickets the last few days. I was at home with the family this weekend. Did you know the crickets up there are a LOT louder at night than they are in Lexington? They were seriously so obnoxious I couldn't sleep. And sometimes they would get out of sync and it was awful. So I decided to be content with the screeching as long as they were in harmony.

And if the previous paragraph doesn't clearly show that I have zero motivation for blog posts lately, then I don't know what does. I felt like I was on a roll for a while these past few weeks. But now I'm super busy with work and personal travel, that I don't have as much time to be creative. I guess life is allowed to get in the way. I can't write about my life if I'm not out living it, I suppose.


When I was younger my mom and I would always play heart and soul on the piano. She's musically inclined. I am not. But it's the one thing I learned. While I was home we dusted off the keyboard to see if we still had it... and voila.

Musical genius, my friends.

Moving on.. I have a date with Justin Timberlake tomorrow night. I guess some would consider that more interesting than my musical ensemble. And don't worry, Mrs. Biel is cool with it.

I'm doing a site visit to Kansas City and the lovely people there invited some Meeting Planners to the Justin Timberlake concert! So dinner at a winery, then grooving with JT it is! And the best part is my bestie is flying in from Chicago to spend the weekend with me! Woot!

I really love my job sometimes most of the the time. :)

So if this innovative post didn't tickle your fancy (which I don't see how it couldn't!) then check out my Top Posts section to see some actually well thought-out ideas and writing.

And with that I'll just hit publish before this gets any worse!

An Open Letter to Dunkin' Donuts

Dear Dunkin Donuts,

Kali here. One of your most loyal customers since I was a young buck. I've been wanting to write a letter to you for quite some time now. Ever since I discovered the sprinkle shortage.

But let me start from the beginning. My whole life, I've only liked Dunkin Donuts. I scoffed at Krispy Kreme or any local bakery. If it wasn't a chocolate sprinkled doughnut from Dunkin, I wasn't having it.

The gooey chocolate icing, mixed with those rainbow sprinkles that filled every bite... just delicious. I was hooked. Your doughnuts became the staple of the start to ever road trip with my family. Two of these babies and a little carton of milk - I was set.

Preach, Bloggess, Preach

The ever-talented-queen-of-hilariously-inappropriate-analogies (The Bloggess - duh) just wrote this post entitled, "Women Who are Ambivalent About Women Against Women Against Feminism."

As soon as I read it, I realized she was saying EXACTLY what I said in a previous post, "It's OK to Drop the F Bomb"

It's always so refreshing to see other women understand this point!

The Bloggess: "Do you think men and women should have equal rights politically, socially and economically?  Then you’re probably a feminist."

Me: "If you are a woman, and you support the rights and equality of women, guess what? You are a FEMINIST! (Gasp!) Instead of shuddering at the thought, try to embrace it. And let's continue to move forward.Don't be afraid to drop the F bomb."

24 Pounds of Happiness

When asked me to write my guest post on happiness, I thought, well this is easy! So I started compiling a list of all of the things that make me happy. Like that new, just-out-of-the-box, shoe smell, a cold beer on a warm summer afternoon, some cheesy queso dip with crispy chips... but then I thought, wait. Let's focus on ONE thing that brings me ridiculous amounts of happiness each and every day.

This thing....
