Flippin' Out

My mom was for once ahead of the curve!
I got a Flip Video Camera for Christmas!! Anyone who knows me knows that my mom isn't always the best gift giver. She is lovely, and chooses very thoughtful items. Its just her thought and my thought are sometimes not on the same page. I've received a few really great items (Hello....Paula Abdul "Reach For The Stars Ring") and not so good items (there was this visor extension thing that you strap on to your existing visor in your car...long story short - I don't need to shield the sun that badly)

Not that I wasn't excited I was kind of taken aback. I don't really have any thing to film. I have a dog but he's naughty so I can't take video of him. So what do I do with this cool little device?

1st thought: Re-Gift. This option is a good one, I have a sister who has kids.... she can take videos of them, take pictures, send the pictures out and she is the hero and everyone is happy.

2nd thought: Figure out how this bad boy works. I am not really that tech savvy. Case in point: I have a Blackberry World. I am sure it does a bunch of stuff like creates my social calendar, tells me what outfits are cute, drives me to work. But, I wouldn't know because all I do is call people, text, and occasionally BBM.

So what do I do? Go ahead and figure out how to use it? Or Re-Gift?? I could sell it on Ebay but I think my mom's feelings would get hurt. I am going to let this simmer. I haven't really touched it, and I read the box but that was about it.
Cheers Folks!

Welcome Y'all

This is my EPIPHANY!!!

Look y’all I have a BLOG! I have been toying with the thought of starting a blog for quite awhile and now I finally just took the plunge and did it. So here I go. Obviously if you are reading this we are friends… you know of me… You may not know me but from reading this you will.
Let’s get a few things straight…

Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this blog are those of the author and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of my employer or the views and opinions of my professional organization in which members are employed or otherwise affiliated. Thank you.

I just write. I try to spell things correctly but often times I do not. And guess what, grammatically I am a genius its just sometimes I want to get the word out so darn quickly it gets jumbled up into a run-on sentence that doesn’t make much sense at all. And if you majored in English I am really proud of your accomplishments.

Hey, I’m Kelly. I am 30 years old, single gal, and I live in South Minneapolis. I am a transplant meaning… I wasn’t born here, or even in the Midwest. But I consider Minnesota home. I have a big family. I live with one of my best friends, and my dog, Hendrix (you will hear a lot about him). I have a dry sense of humor, I’m witty, and I have a really good life with wonderful people who support me most of the time. I work in media. And I am obsessed with pop culture, celebrities (or lack thereof) and sports. I also like to travel.

Finally: I hope you enjoy reading my blog. It’s a huge experiment. I am going to blog 2x a week. I am going to take pictures, review products, tell you about what is happening in and around Minnesota. (I hope!) And definitely drop some knowledge on you. Whether that knowledge will be useful or necessary is up to YOU to decide. Oh I might have guest bloggers from time to time. I have recruited some really amazing people to pop through and talk about things that may interest them.
