But, I was determined to prove to myself that I could, so I had this amazing idea of doing a live blog on crown moulding.
Sometimes I don't know why I think things are a good idea.
And then, yesterday, Caity sent us this thing that delineated 50 reasons why Texas is Eden or Utopia or whatever other amazing place you can think of. I read through it because I'm a good sport and I'm trying to convince myself moving to Texas would be a great idea (more on that later, maybe). But I'll always be a California girl at heart, I just can't help it. And I can't resist a little tease-fight-picking. So I told Caity the list was totally subjective (because who really likes armadillos and Renaissance Fairs, seriously?) and then I told her I could do the same thing for any state, even Kansas. Caity said please do, so I did, because I know nothing about it.
I've never been to Kansas, and I really have nothing personal against it. But every one of my husband's family does. Apparently it was the equivalent of Hell for all of the two years that they lived there. If you like Kansas, I'm sure it's a swell place. But for humor's sake, I can't resist the challenge. And you know it'll be way better than instant updates on crown moulding trivia.
10 (Because 50 is way too many) Reasons Kansas is Utopia/Eden/Wherever
1. The Food: Namely corn pone and fried chicken. Apparently fried chicken is, in fact, the state food. You just can't complete your Little-House-on-the-Prairie-Party without corn pone (and a flowered flannel nighty). And fried chicken is, well, fried chicken. Greasy, bready, artery-clogging chicken. Nom.
3. Smallville Not Superman in general, but the WB (or the CW for you new folks) show starring Tom Welling as a pubescent Clark Kent. And in that universe, Superteen lives in Kansas. And everyone is either an alien or radioactive. And yet somehow everything is kept totally secret. And because it's a very small town in Kansas, everyone is young and attractive. Wait...what?

7. Truck Henge I have nothing to say about this. But it's Kansas-Awesome.
|Good times in Cawker, KS for these folks|
|You should be glad I didn't put a picture of the embalmed guy.|
|It's a real shame there aren't any actual pictures of this. Fortunately, you have me to help you out with the vision.|
Of course, doing research on all this Kansas stuff I found out there're actually some neat stuff that's come out of there, like Amelia Earhart and the girl who told Abe Lincoln to grow a beard. Totes noteworthy. Totes-worthy?
