I have a love/hate relationship with the Kardashians.
I’ve hesitated in revealing this to you. It’s an ugly little secret that I’ve been embarrassed to discuss. But what I know is this – deep down, in places that you don’t like to talk about at parties, you want me caring about the Kardashians. You NEED me caring about the Kardashians.
Okay sorry. Got a little drama llama there. Oopsie.
The thing is, I really DON’T care about the Kardashians. I scroll through Facebook and see yet ANOTHER article about Kylie’s lips or Kim’s baby and I roll my eyes. Hello, there are REAL CRISES IN THE WORLD. NOBODY CARES, US WEEKLY!!
But then it starts. That little nagging feeling. Kylie does have nice lips, in a weird, fake, disturbing kind of a way. And Kim DOES make cute babies, even if her pregnancies are exploited to the point that I nearly vomit every time I see a caption about how “difficult” her pregnancy has been. HOMEGIRL FLIES AROUND IN A PRIVATE JET. Unlike me, who was once pregnant and stranded on a runway for 2 hours, drinking tepid water and sweating profusely in places that I’d prefer not to mention.
So I click over to the article. Just a quick peek, really. So I can see what the latest ridiculous nonsense is and I can make fun of them. But then it happens –“SCOTT DISICK DID WHAT TO KOURTNEY?!?! Oh HAIL NO.”
I start feeling real, actual feelings. It’s frightening and upsetting and slightly pleasurable, all at once.
A couple of months ago, I came across a video Khloe Kardashian made about how she fills her cookie jars. She buys inexpensive glass cookie jars at Target, then stacks her cookies neatly around the perimeter. It’s ridiculous, time consuming, and completely pointless. So of course, I had to try it.
It’s adorable, if I do say so. Something about those neat stacks makes regular Oreos and Nutter Butters seem so much more enticing. I’ve been trying different cookies in my jars each month, and one of our favorites has been Fudge Stripes.
So I did the obvious thing and made my own from scratch. Take notes, Khloe. Take notes.
