    Hi Ellery,

    I love listening to the rain, too. I’ve been meaning to ask you — did your cat ever come back? I hope so!

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Caro,

    LOL, it was really funny! Thanks, it totally cracked me up.

    So sorry to hear about your hometown. Perhaps you can donate money to relief efforts… I’ve donated money to the Red Cross for disaster relief. Even though I can’t be there to help in person, it makes me feel better to know that I’m still able to help.

  37. Karen says:

    Hi Ines,

    Aye! Girl, I had the hardest time making it to 8:00 classes. When all else fails, makeup bribery always helps.

    Hi Music_Is_freedom,

    Hi Aleks,

    Ahh, enjoy that time a much as you can. Adult life and work come on waaaay too quickly. 🙂

    Things on this end have been good. Work’s been busy (as usual), but other than that life’s been pretty steady, which I don’t mind at all. It’s actually been really hot here lately (we get an late summer in the Bay Area) so I’m enjoying the weather! Now, if only the water were warm enough to swim in!

    El Hub’s doing well and Tabs is most excellent. 🙂

    What’s new with you?

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Betty,

    That’s one of my favorite New Order songs!

    Happy early 18th birthday! Are you doing anything to celebrate?

  46. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    I *love* banana pancakes!

    You know I love shoes. What do your work ones look like?

  47. Karen says:

    Hi Erica,

    A new hair color is always fun. What did you go with?

  48. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    It was a lot of fun. There was a bit of waiting and standing around, but seeing kids’ faces light up when the saw the parade made it so enjoyable.

    I am very excited about you finally getting your hands on some Cult of Cherry! You will have to let me know what you think.

    Mooncakes sound very enticing. Are they sweet?

  49. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    I hope you managed to get some sleep and that you’re feeling better.

    And btw, I LOVE J. Lo glow!

  50. Karen says:

    Hi Lyn,

    Do you have your eyes on any particular pairs of shoes for the fall? I can’t wait for it to get cold enough for boots!

  51. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    Sensuous is a good scent. I like it more for fall, rather than summer. I’ll be wearing it when the weather turns cooler.

    I’m glad to hear that you got some rest!

  52. Karen says:

    Hi Lindsay,

    Waimea! I wish I was there today. Have you jumped off the rock?

  53. Karen says:

    Hi Alyssa,

    I totally agree with you — we have the ability to take charge! It’s a liberating and empowering feeling. 🙂

  54. Karen says:

    Hi Iheartmakeup,

    Aww, sweetie, why are you annoyed? I hope you are feeling better…

    I need that Eyeliner Brush! It’s never in stock when I go to Target, boo!

  55. Karen says:

    Hi Ditte,

    Oh hon! Nine years is a long time to have been in a relationship. Are you okay? How are you coping?

    Whatever you do, if you’re tempted to hack off your hair, *wait*. I have done that many a time after breakups and have more than once regretted the impulsive decision.

  56. Karen says:

    Hi Laura B.,

    Hey, I love Dolly, and Nine to Five is one of my favorite songs!

  57. Karen says:

    Hi Pia,

    I didn’t know you were a mommy! How old are your kids? 🙂

  58. Karen says:

    Hi Medina,

    I hope the interview went well! Do you think you got it?

  59. Karen says:

    Hi Ping,

    Okay, so I have to ask — what’s chicken floss?

  60. Karen says:

    Hi Lydia,

    Don’t you love those days to yourself? I sure do. Hope you had a good Tuesday!

  61. Karen says:

    Hi Tanya,

    Sweet! Which Law & Order do you like to watch? I love SVU. I got a thing for Detective (Un)Stabler, LOL.

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Louise Gray,

    LOL, you crack me up. How was the celebration? Please tell me there was cake and plenty of WINE!

  63. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    Girrrrrl, you gotta be careful about those work crushes!

    I hope you get out of your cast soon. Are you still able to do other exercises besides running?

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Mariah,

    Mario Kart! I am soooo old school when it comes to games. I will always forever love Super Mario Bros. on the old school Nintendo (the one that came with the robot and Duck Hunt!).

    Yeah, I’m ancient.

  65. Louise Gray says:

    Hi to you, one of my all time faves from the west coast!
    J and S invited me over to their home several doors away for dinner on Sat. I brought the salad and J. made portabello ravioli for dinner. Then they came over Sunday night to my house and we had pizza with crust from Trader Joe’s with prosecco. DH bought me a specially decorated vegan birthday/retirement cake from Whole Foods. We took a picture of several cakes from the Cupcake Cafe in New York City. Check out their website. The cakes are die for. Whole Foods had a wonderful cake decorator who made the most gorgeous cake for me with pink roses, hanging wisteria and bumblebees with almond wings. And she sprinkled a little crystal sugar on the petals for extra magic. Girl, I tell you that was the best and most beautiful vegan cake that I have ever seen or eaten. After the last 21 months that I have had, I needed a celebratory moment. I am telepathically sending you a huge hunk of cake. Enjoy. You are already sweet enough. Louise in Pittsburgh

    Hi Louise Gray,

    Hi to you, one of my Pittsburg faves!

    Sounds like you had some wonderful celebrations. I would’ve happily gobbled up all of that food if I was there with you. I can’t lie!

    OH, and thanks for the Cupcake Cafe referral. I really love to bake and enjoy creating cake creations from scratch! When I go to NY I will have to stop by there and eat my way into a sugar coma.

    I hope things go onward and upward for you in your next year! 🙂

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    Hey girl! I am glad you got to enjoy our beautiful Bay Area weather this weekend. Any progress on the plans to move back?

    I could totally dig a glass of wine right now, but I’m getting sick, so it’s just cold medicine for me tonight.
