overrated: turning 21. it's all downhill from there. i looked forward to that b-day from the time i was a teenager, now i'm trying to hide from the impending 24. and i swear i just turned 21 what SEEMS like a year ago, at best.
and coffee. i swear, you go one month without caffeine and you'll be more energetic than you could imagine. after the headaches pass...

underrated: sleep. and pencils and paper. i mean, the only way something is going to delete the items in a notebook is you and an eraser. and notebooks don't crash or require upgrades or new keyboards just to get words onto the page. just a fresh pen or a pencil sharpener.

Hey Katie has great legs and solodad has a cute face... :)
Katie doing a sit down interview in some lacey stockings can be positively un nerving and I think the camera man knows it which is they show her legs so much.

I agree about Britney Spears.. but Shania Twain basically raised her family after her mom/dad were gone. I think she has a lot of character!

I agree kitchenelf, however, the is something more charming about Bourguignonne than just plain beef stew. I make lapskaus which is Norwegian beef stew (sometimes done with reindeeer or lamb) but the difference is a rudabega, and again there is something charming about it. And to add an extra little umph to just plain beef stew add cutouts or top it with puff pastry.

Heh vilasman1 the legs and cute face are questionable to me, I stopped watching American Morning about a week after they hired her, and I never watch the Today show. Usually it is GMA or my local stuff. I much prefer Anderson Cooper or a gentleman on my local news. Dan Rather aint bad, but they never show his legs, and then there is Peter Jennings.
