I’ve been doing a lot of self-reflection lately and trying to separate my needs from my wants. Sometimes I have a hard time knowing the differents, so I decided to go to my old pal Google for help. The results were…well…
Karen wants to be a dog.
I’ve never really thought much about this. But I suppose I would sort of enjoy it. After all, you get to lay around all day. In fact, at my mom’s house, the dogs are actually ordered to lay down. It’s part of their job. They get all sorts of junk food, and they’re constantly being told how cute they are. Especially the fatter they get. The only problem is…
Karen needs more chocolate.
And dogs aren’t supposed to have chocolate. That would be a problem. Actually, it would be a deal-breaker.
Karen wants to evolve the personal shopping industry in South Africa.
Because if there is one thing that would help the people of South Africa, it’s shopping! What better way to bring a developing nation forward? If there is one thing this world needs more of, it’s shopping. But who the people with money have no time and the people with time have no money. So the answer, of course, is personal shopping. It’s a win-win!
Karen needs to go to SLC.
South Africa would be fun and all, but I miss my friends up in Utah. I think it’s time to pay them another visit.
Karen wants to be a part of the Hollywood dealmaking process.
I mean, seriously. Do you really want to see more TV shows like From G’s to Gents? And does there need to be another Fast and Furious movie? If I were making the deals, Pushing Daisies would be back on the air, Deadliest Catch would be on every night, and I would get a $20 million deal for my screenplay. (Who cares that it isn’t finished yet??)
Karen needs some gin.
Because if I’m going to be wheeling in dealing in Hollywood, I have to pick up some sort of vice. And crack is just too common. Meth is too low-brow. So I think I’m just going to keep it simple and go for the socially acceptable addiction: alcohol.
Karen wants to be on a gymnastics team.
Honestly. I always wanted to take gymnastics when I was a kid. I probably would have killed myself in a freak floor-routine accident, but I always loved it. But as much as I would love to be on a gymnastics team, ain’t no one wants to see this in a unitard.
Karen needs a lobotomy fund.
Those things are expensive. I don’t think my insurance will even cover it. And if I think I’m going to be on a gymnastics team, I clearly need a lobotomy.
Karen wants women to own their own beauty.
I do. It’s true. I don’t really know what it means, but it sounds good.
Karen needs to develop her warrior side.
Seriously. Especially if it means wearing war paint and carrying around a large, sharp object. I’m just too passive these days. I need to be tougher.
And just for fun, here are a few other things I want:
-a “friendlier” injection
-New York to smell delicious
-your hunting stories (or fishing if you are an Alaskan Crab Fisherman ☺)
-to take some of the hassle and worry out of travelling
-to talk about the “Pam” situation
And some more things I apparently need:
-more CS training
-to compliment my workers
-to write something in my own words
-a new helmet
So…what are your wants and needs?
