Love your blog, it's so cute.

I learned a lot I didn't know about you in your blog tag....I didn't realize you'd lived in Gainesville--I went there for a chemistry convention last year and pet a gator.

I too love Napoleon Dynamite, especially Kip, he's by far my favorite. Also the office and 30 rock, best shows ever!

I was cracking up at working at Prestige Events, what a wierd job, huh?

I'm all over the Napoleon Dynamite trivia! It's from Uncle Rico's Tupperware-knockoff sales scene, and the lady is trying to inspire her husband to be able to tear the Tupperware. But alas, he "can't do it."

20 points to Julie! I knew one of my sisters would come through for me.
