Gangnam Style by PSY

 This video cracks me up. SO MUCH. Love the visuals, the dancing and the beat. Just one more video for my Korean friend Rachel who does not like rice. What?! That's right, she's from Oklahoma. Read more about the hugely popular video here. This has been viewed over 40 million times and counting already. I can attest that I've watched it at least 10 times.

Lee Jong Hyun - CN Blue


I'm going all fan girl on this one. He's adorable and his voice is just lovely.
I don't even care that I don't have a single clue what he's singing.

Double Rainbows

I was sitting in my office working when the sky went from dark gray to eerie yellow. Thunderstorms were supposed to be coming in and the sudden light change pushed me away from my desk to take a look outside. I didn't even notice the rainbow at first, completely awed by just the clouds and color of the sky. When I finally turned my head, I saw this amazing rainbow that reached from end to end. It was the biggest, brightest and most brilliant rainbow I have ever seen. It enveloped the entire city and lasted for a long time. Screaming like a lunatic, I banged on my freighbor's* door so she could see it to. Even though I took a lot of pictures, it is impossible to capture the color, the feeling, the amazement of rainbows. You just have to be under it to enjoy it. But just like taking pictures of harvest moons and wandering ghosts, we all keep trying to capture these impossible moments.

Feeling Sentimental

I find myself missing my other blog, The Employee Lounge, a lot. I miss working with my favorite Tina, who is so amazingly talented. I visit so many new places that I wish I had a chance to share with others. I read blogs and am always thinking of ways we can work together again while improving our process. How do we interview people and get more meaningful and thoughtful answers? How do we capture people in new ways to truly show who they are? Can we change the way we work and still maintain the essence of what our blog started out to be?

Somewhere along the way though, it became a job we were avoiding. It became more business than project. Neither Tina nor I are very "business-y" so that was truly a challenge for us. But when people still come up and ask about our blog, when they recommend their service industry friends we need to interview, when they ask us to share a part of their lives, it's kind of hard to say we stopped doing the blog. So I say we're on a break, as we're both busy working making a living. A break, a hiatus, a breather. And I cross my fingers that Tina and I find some time soon to discover Kansas City together again.
