puzzled


That's right, I know how to PARTY.


This is how we go wild these days. Some intense jigsaw puzzling with my baby and my cat.


Violet is puzzled. HAR.


Aaaaand this is as far as we got before other stuff came up. We never finished it, but check out that amazing border!


And just in case you didn't get enough Violet, let me offer you this photo. Sometimes she tries to make two expressions at once.

Lastly, I GAVE BIRTH LAST MONTH. Today is the last day I can say that, so I just wanted to get that in. Crazy, right? I can't believe I can walk around and carry on a regular(ish) life.

sometimes you just got it


I know you readers of my blog have spent hours thinking about boat-based arcade games. Well look no further for tips on how to excel...


BOOYA


Please refer to us as "Most Rapid Mike" and "Most Rapid Karen" from now on. Thank you.


Yay for new bracelets with my ticket haul!


And yes this is unrelated, but it just gives me a glimpse into what (I hope) the future holds for Mike and I. No, not the band, the couple tearing up the dance floor.

I LOVE DADDY







DADDY LOVES ME

um finally


Ok, so sometimes I say I'm gonna do something, and it takes me forever. Like this one time I was all "I have a birthday present for you" to one of my friends and it took me like 5 months to actually deliver. (Although I'd like to think that wrapping the gift IN A SANDWICH made up for it) Or like when I said "I promise I'll post a video of my tap recital"... which happened last March...

Anyway, I figure posting this could kind of combine both things, since my fellow tapper Ciara's birthday is today. Not to mention my other lovely friends Demoree and Rachel also have January birthdays, so consider this a group gift!


Here are my friends at various momentous occasions in my life. Demoree at my wedding, Rachel with my newborn baby in the hospital, and most importantly Ciara and I going to the Bang.


Ciara is the first one on the left and I'm third from the left. ENJOY.

FUN FACT: This was the day Mike and I found out we were having a baby. We were secretly bursting with excitement, as I am sure you can tell by my amazing tap performance. (kidding... this is actually really embarrassing, but worth a few laughs for the select few who actually look at this blog. If you must fast forward, at least watch the end of the performance- the 5:45 mark. Epic. Hilarious.)

GOT MY FIRST SHOT


HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME

let me be franc


HELLO I'M AWESOME.

Whatup I'm James Franco. I was on one of the greatest TV shows of all time, Freaks and Geeks. I also have attended a million colleges, including Columbia and NYU for grad school and Yale for my PhD all while shooting all kinds of movies for which I receive many accolades. I also like to write and publish novels and paint because I'm all RENAISSANCE and crap.






Oh yeah, and I sometimes appear as "Franco" the evil killer on General Hospital. Just because.


As you can see, James Franco was partially responsible for helping me through labor. We had episodes playing as Violet was unsuccessfully trying to emerge into the world.

Just giving the people what they want.


In checking out the Karen in Color stats, I have realized that I'm not quite as geeky as I thought... Thanks to all y'all who are loyal readers (Lookers? There's not usually much text). In addition to number of page visits, I can see how people found me. The following phrases are the most common web searches that have led people to my blog. Um obviously... (?)

"doctor house leg pic"
"garfield and friends"
"santa guy song by karen"
"sssssss soundtrack"
"twimilk"
"what does babyful mean"
"what is the name of those boots with the polar bear logo"
"homeless child + lyrics + santa"
"cat on drums"
"brooke fraser in pantyhose"

Whoa whoa whoa... Is it true that SSSSSSS has a soundtrack?? Amazing.

PLEASE PLEASE MOM CAN I STAY UP TONIGHT I'LL BE GOOD




HEH HEH HEH I'M NOT GONNA BE GOOD I'M GONNA CRY

have a heart


I loved watching Gumby back in the day. So fun, so androgynous.



As the song says, "If you have a heart, then Gumby's a part of you"...



This is the kind of blog post I make when I am sleep deprived. What is wrong with me? My inner monologue: "Search for photos of open heart surgery and photoshop Gumby in them. Why yes, this will be blog post GOLD."

a word from the kittens

THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMMING DOES NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS OF KAREN IN COLOR


Dear Violet,
We don't like you. Ever since you came around you are the new standard of cuteness in the world of Karen in Color. GO AWAY AND DON'T COME BACK. Give us back our web space. We are counting down the days until you go through your awkward adolescent phase. THEN WE WILL CONQUER WITH OUR EVER PRESENT ADORABLENESS.

United we stand,
Kitties

PS: Look at this present we made you. Hahahameowwwhahaha.

my name is karen

and here you will find things that i make and see.
