    Well, Kimberley-Anne – I can honestly say I have never heard of Bend or met anyone from there! Did it Bend or was it on a Bend or was it named after an explorer called Bend?

  2. Kimberly says:

    I honestly couldn’t tell you, I’m sure you could find it on wikipedia. It’s famous for being right by Mt Bachelor, it’s a big resort town basically.

  3. Oscarandre says:

    The name Bend was derived from “Farewell Bend,” the designation used by early pioneers to refer to the location along the Deschutes River where the town eventually was platted, one of the few fordable points along the river (Wikipedia)So now I know!

    You’ve never cursed at anyone?? that is just unacceptable!
    Come on, swear at me! say something! call me a poopiehead, a douchebrain, something!! it’s a start!

  5. Dead Charming says:

    I LOVE Bend (and Sisters, and Redmond) and have considered moving there in the past.

    I applaud you for your restraint in the cursing department. Sadly, I have cursed, sworn and would have even hexed someone if I’d have known how before. It never ACTUALLY made me feel any better. So you’re one up on me there.

    You have great taste in movies, but why the number three? I find two to be so much more balanced.

    I like your blog as well, very nice to meet you. 🙂

  6. Kimberly says:

    Bend is great! We still have a house down there, and family so we visit quite frequently. Sisters wins the battle when it comes to great towns though… it’s just so cute!

    Haha, well I’ve been raised in a home where cursing at someone is just unacceptable. And even if I felt like being a rebel, I don’t have the guts. 🙂

    The number three…. well it’s a long story. Pretty much I just feel as though things are always better in threes. Such as gifts… I can’t just get two things for someone– must be three. Friends… always more fun when there are three rather than just two, and with four; one or two end up feeling left out (especially true among teen girls). It just seems more whole. Plus there is a lot of weird conspiracy stuff surrounding the number. And from a religious perspective– the father, the son, the holy spirit. Therefore, it just feels like a magical number to me I suppose.

    Thank you! Very nice to meet you as well! I look forward to reading more of your work. 🙂

    My friend always tells me, “your mom installed your buttons so of course she knows how to push em!”

  8. Valerie says:

    Thanks for the post on my blog! I have been secretly in love with yours for a while now 🙂 It reminds me of my friends at school, and it makes me nostalgic for Washington State ( I used to live there).

    • Kimberly says:

      Haha, you should have commented! 🙂 I love finding new readers, basically just to know that I’m not writing this and no one is reading it. hehe. Where did you live in Washington?

  9. Valerie says:

    lol. I guess I’m blog shy? I lived all the way up in Bellingham. Was going to go to WWU but through a series of events decided not to, but I loved it there so much I stayed for a bit, till I got whisked away by love to Alberta 🙂

  10. Valerie says:

    It’s in Shelton yeah- same thing 🙂 I never made it out that way, we were going to go to Bremerton once but that fell through. I visited Seattle a bunch of time and even went to Bumpershoot, but most of the time I explored the San Juan Islands, and my friends and I would go to this old abandoned fort (can’t remember the name for the life of me) An hour or so south of B’ham. You ever go up there? Or to Mt. Baker- really fun snowboarding.

    • Kimberly says:

      Haha, that’s so funny about the store! I see it almost everyday when I’m home because it’s across the street from where I work! I haven’t been in though. 🙂 I love the san jauns! I’ve only gone up there once I believe… but it was beautiful. The abandoned fort… are you talking about port townsend?? I know they have the old barracks or whatever those are called. We went there my last day of my junior year in hs. Just a bunch of girlfriends and I… exploring. hehe. Good times. 🙂

  11. Valerie says:

    You should stop in the store next time you’re back home. I bet its pretty inside:). I figured out the place is Fort Casey on Whidbey Island. There are these chambers underground, built into the side of a hill, that we went and explored at night. Very creepy!

  12. Simply Me says:

    Cute blog! I was skimming the blog and read that you live in Shelton. My family lives in Lacey, WA, and I moved from there almost over two years ago. It’s a small world after all.

  13. Simply Me says:

    I live in California now, back home. Lacey is a cute town! To what I remember, Shelton is small! Do you like it?

    • Kimberly says:

      Thank you so much! 🙂 And thanks for sharing that you read 🙂 I love finding out who’s out there, and of course I’ll be stopping by your blog now!

      • maryeburger says:

        Hey, I would love to pick your brain about the formatting of your blog…I am still struggling to make mine, well, a bit more original and certainly prettier. Help! Please!



  14. Samuel Smith says:

    Kim – i’ve read your blog and feel well enough acquainted to ask you out for dinner. And maybe the movie ‘Avatar’ afterwards if you’re into blue aliens like I am. For dessert, well, I’m getting ahead here but will roll the dice and suggest deep fried elephant ears – some call them scones. We can sprinkle moist jelly drops across the top then each eat our ways from opposite sides to the scone center where we finish with a kiss. yeah, let me know…

  15. Robert says:

    You’re a goofy one, yes? I like your blog, well. No. I like the first 4 posts on your blog. I haven’t read any more yet. But I will. You’ve had me laughing over here.

    Seems like you’ve been doing this thing for ages. I hope that. if I ever make it through multiple years of blogging, I never have to wear a fake mustache as an eye-patch.

    Hope yr toe heals nicely!

    Love the blog. Especially the title. I love the Kooks. Anywho. Stop by my bare-ass blog anytime. I just moved recently from Blogger because I like WordPress a lot better.


    • Kimberly says:

      lol thanks! the kooks are fantastic! 🙂 I will definitely stop by your blog because you used the phrase “bare-ass” which is awesome. 🙂
