Using the "New" Laptop

Yesterday I got my laptop back, and it's really weird. The hard drive I have now belonged to one of my dad's friends, and so I feel like I'm intruding on someone else's computer; which, basically, I am. There is a lot of music on my "new" computer's iTunes, and I was looking through it last night. Last night, I listened to my first Beatles song ever. Hey Jude is about four minutes longer than it needs to be. My attention span can only take so many "Na na na na na ,na na na, hey Jude's". I liked the rest of the song though. I was talking to my friend last night and I told her that I had just listen to my first full Beatles song, and she asked me if I was American. Yes, Ali, I am American, but just so you know, the Beatles were British. I was actually going to stop the song halfway through because I was so bored with all the "Na na na na na ,na na na, hey Jude's" but I continued playing it so I could say that I have heard the Beatles.

It snowed a lot this weekend. I love it. There's seven inches of snow all over the place and it's beautiful.


  1. HAHAHA! ok, so maybe me asking if you are american, wasn't the best choice of words there....lol.
    oh btw-the leaders meeting is cancelled if you don't already know that.

  2. lol probably not! ok thank you!

  3. Hey Kates,

    1. Did you take the sneaker photo? Cool.

    2. Can you lose the white text on dark background? That's so 2004.

    3. I can't wait until I get home: We'll crank up "Hey Jude and sing along at the top of our lungs, ok?

    love you, Dad

  4. Never heard the beatles?!? Whoa! Yes, they are british...but they were part of the british invasion period of music when all the popular bands and solo artists in america were british, so in a way, Ali's right. The beatles are about as american as cheeseburgers and apple pie, when it comes to what we love and what we do.

  5. I have never heard "Hey Jude" But "All You Need is Love" goes on too. Although the Beatles are British, they were pretty big in the U.S. Now are you going to tell me that you have never heard an entire Jonas Brother song?! :) JK

  6. HA! see, I was close in a round about way :D
    and don't worry, shes heard her fair share of jo bros songs :)

  7. Daddy- yeah, I did! Thank you :) Ok, I can do that, and that sounds fun. Love you too.

    Oh yeah, I've heard sooo many Jonas Brother songs, thank you Ali! :)


go ahead. make my day.
