|See that apple necklace and those cute golden apples on my top?|
They inspired today's post.
That will be important later!
So this is a totally random post today, but between the cold that has knocked me on my butt this week and the craziness of closing out the school semester, I am running pretty low on coherent thoughts. When I was in 8th grade, I decided I was going to be a singer. Hey, I was in 5th grade choir, so I was practically a trained professional. In the shower I would practice my singing and my future Grammy award acceptance speech. Things were pretty legit.

I also spent a lot of time imagining and planning out my album cover and name- you know, this was before iTunes when people actually looked at album covers and names. I was going to name my awesome debut album "One Bad Apple". Yep. Digest it. Embrace it. Love it.
So "One Bad Apple" was going to have a bad ass cover, of course. It involved me in a super-futuristic outfit (think silver aluminum foil-type pleated mini skirt and a baby doll tee - mid- 90s, y'all!) climbing a ladder to pick apples from a tree. The tree was going to be silver and robotic looking and the apples were going to be golden. Ironically, in this tree full of golden apples, I was going to be picking the one perfectly ripe, perfectly red apple. Oh, eighth grade Katie, you were so edgy and cool ;)
I wish I had Elena's artistic ability, so I could provide an illustration- can I commission a piece, Elena? (And go congratulate her on her exciting news!)
