The My Little Pony Edition
Karen is one of my best friends. We met on the internet many years ago, when I had a blog about Ambitious Hamsters. She lives in LA, I am… inland. Even though these days I don’t get to correspond with her much, I think she’s totally rad and I’m very glad we’re friends. She still puts up with me. Yay!

In the interest in full disclosure, Karen is the wife of James Bates, whom you will remember from a previous post. He works in a cave. This photo was taken on a visit to James’ cave. I hope she got out OK.
Karen has a hard time embracing Modern Technology. She apparently uses a phone that not only won’t let her post to Facebook properly, but also takes pictures with a very weird aspect ratio. No iPhone for Karen. She went for the anti-iPhone. REBEL!
Someone who loves her very much and knows her very well got her this mug. Either that or she got a really great deal on it at the dollar store. Because who else, outside of maybe 500 people in the United States, knows who Rainbow Dash is? And out of those 500 people who know, I’d guess about only 20 would really want a mug with Rainbow Dash on it. Someone in New Jersey decided to make a whole bunch of these, sold 5 online and the rest went to discount outlets. And then they created a Wikipedia page to legitimize the whole thing.
Also, please note she only admits to being “20% cooler” than the rest of us. She knows she’s superior, but she’s really nice about it.
Karen enjoys being on the cutting edge, but likes to do it from the very sideline of the cutting edge, it’s a little less…edgy. See how she has her mug on a paper towel? It’s because SHE DOESN’T WANT TO SPILL ANYTHING on the coffee table. Too risky.
Her coffee is industrial-grade strength. She can’t even manage a full mug of it herself, it’s so strong. She believes in always making a bold statement, you know. Even with her coffee.
She’s all ponies and rainbows, and paper towels. And then POW! She hits you with the strong coffee.
Karen always keeps you guessing, and she prefers it that way. So do we. It’s more fun.
