September 25, 2011Kat's love spreads to everyone and everything she touches. She is one of the most amazing people I have ever known. I am proud to call her my friend.
May 23, 2010She's a SASSY KAT, and she's PACKIN'! That's not really lipstick she's taking out of her diamond-studded handbag... it's --
-- ! ! ! Sorry, just you wait 'n see. It could be different each time. But one thing's for sure - it will always go, *KABLAM!* And you'll love it.
April 18, 2009Kat!!! It's your birthday!
Thank you for being born so that you could be my friend! Every moment that we have spent together has been fabulously fun, and I can't wait for the next time we're in the same place. The only good thing about you being WAY over there is that I get to phone you early in the morning <g>. I love you, woman!! Have a fantabulous birthday!!! I'll be celebrating the fact that I've had the privilege of knowing you for another year : ). Hope I know you for always! MWA!!!
December 9, 2008I feel like one of the lucky ones. I've gotten to know Kat pretty well and can say without reservation, she is one of the kindest people I've ever known. Hard to find these days; she's a rare gem in a bucket of mud.
October 9, 2007I only know Kat as electrons and photons but she exudes a presence and warmth that is three dimensional. Charm, style wit, and sex appeal? Yeah, she has that too. But don't tell her I said that. She gets a lot of that and we wouldn't want it going to her head, would we? There are a handful of people I've met here that keep me coming back. Kat is one of them.
June 7, 2007Some time ago, I was asked to write a testimonial for Kat. I hadn't met her yet, though, so I waited till she visited the West Coast. I kept waiting...and waiting...and waiting.... ;) OH!!! Peoples, the wait only made our meeting ever the sweeter and more fulfilling!!! Everything righteous thing you may feel for Kat online, and you'll be graced by it 10 times over in her actual presence!!!!
Get out har!!! :)
May 15, 2007All of the things that I thought Kat was, all of the warmth that I felt for her, all of the respect that I held, everything, blossomed like a rose once we finally met this week. She is kind, she is understanding, she is FUN, she is artistic, she knows how I feel (hell, she can read my mind, sometimes!), she's brilliant, she's witty, and she's a freaking superhero. She brings tears to my eyes, and a smile to my lips...sometimes all at once...and I am so, so happy to know her. I hope that we will be sisters for the rest of our lives. I love this woman. Seriously. She *is* the bomb.
April 8, 2007I know people expect me to make a joke about everything and I will admit that 99% of my comments end with a ;) or a cheeky grin but now is time to be serious.
Kat is an amazing woman, the phrase 'heart of gold' was especially created for her. She is warm, kind, gentle and, most of all, a valued friend.
Oh, and she has this great ass ;)
March 12, 2007Kat is a perfect blend of all that is good in life. Her eyes melt my soul and her soul melts my brain. Of all the people on Tribe, kat is definitely one of them.
March 9, 2007Doth Kat know how amazing, smart, beautiful, and what a precious human being she is? I sure hope so. I am proud to know her in cyber space and hope to share pie with her at some point in the future... she is such a devoted Pie worshipper.
She get's the Queenie seal of approval.
December 4, 2006I first met Kat when she was my instructor for FBI Sniper School in Quantico, Virginia. With the foul mouth and rough demeanor that attested to her history with the 75th Ranger Regiment, she was every inch the sort of woman I knew could be trusted with a bézier curve under the tightest of deadlines and whom would negotiate as many layers as needed, however opaque, lock or nested they may be. She is a woman of taste and class and distinction, and I only wish that she had let Tom down easier than she did so that things had not turned out so poorly for the young Ms. Holmes as he tried to clear the body thetans that she left him. Her profound charisma has doubtless haunted many a man.
November 13, 2006Long aware of Qat, we became aquainted by a pained stab in the dark. Looking at myself, over time, instead I stirred something. And there she is, still stirring. Stirring the pot. Stirring up the locals. Stirring up dangerous things and then smiling, as if to say, "Wouldn't you have done that eventually, if I had not?"
November 5, 2006Kat is one of the sweetest, kindest, most loyal friends a girl could ever want! She totally rocks. She is always open to new ideas, new friends and new experiences. She’s also a great mom who would do anything for her kids. She is always learning, growing and sharing that with her friends. Got Kat? If not, get her!
September 26, 2006This woman's kindness spans the galaxies. She is a warm, witty, loving, and giving person. Kat's a real trooper.
September 15, 2006Kat is one of the bright, shiny objects that draw me, again and again, back to Tribe. We've never actually met, but I just know that if we did, we'd fall immediately into hours and hours of warm, wonderful, and passionate discourse. She loves art and music, has known intense passion and sorrow, is aware of the fact that posting is a trot, and is equal parts sweet as sugar and snarky as sin...she's my kind of girl. Best of all, she's willing to share a slice of her life with a bunch of possibly psycho online strangers, like me, and I adore her for it. She makes me want to know her, and I hope that someday I'll get the chance. I'm proud to be a card-carrying Kommando : ).
September 5, 2006I love her like I love Fresca.

That is Kat
Her heart is made of love
She is wise and nice
Don't make her mad if you are
not ready for it...
(and I seriously doubt you are
… keep out)
She would do more for you
She would make you laugh
Just be her friend!

Kat is like my tribe big sister. We’ve had our moments, but it’s only made us better friends in the long run.
June 29, 2006Kat is one of the kindest people I've ever met. Keenly sensitive & warm-hearted. What I like most about her is that when she smiles or laughs it's completely genuine & from the heart. That's a rare thing in a world full of social-climbing flattery, navel-gazing narcissism, self-aggrandizing bullshit, & cloying false sincerity. I'm glad to know her.
March 30, 2006Kat is smart and artistic. The smartness runs deep and can be full of insights and wry, unexpected twists.
The artistic side is based on the exquisite fine taste of a beautifully deckled 35 lb Latin dictionary bound in properly sewn signatures mixed equally with the mocking, cartoonish bad taste of a carved pumpkin vomiting its innards. These two forces exist together, as one. They contradicting each other to the casual observer, but to the student of the glass bead game, they unite profoundly, becoming Truth.
Kat is a loyal friend, but can be a formidable enemy. Do not cross her!
October 31, 2005you is one exceptional human bean. rarely does one meet a biped with intellect, wit, and curves that are the envy of most. you exudea certain appeal that defies the humdrum world. k, you're a roygbiv sweet thang amongst the monochromatic 21st c. thus far.

Day No. 1:
And the Lord God said, “Let there be light,” and lo, there was light. But then the Lord God said, “Wait, what if I make it a sort of rosy, sunset-at-the-beach, filtered half-light, so that everything else I design will look younger?”
“I’m loving that,” said Buddha. “It’s new.”
“You should design a restaurant,” added Allah.
Day No. 2:
“Today,” the Lord God said, “let’s do land.” And lo, ... read more
Some need gold and some need diamond rings
Or a drug to take away the pain that living brings
A promise of a better world to come
When whatever here is done
I don't need that sky of blue, baby
All I know's since I found you
I'm happy when I'm in your arms
Happy, darlin, come the dark
Happy when I taste your kiss
I'm happy in a love like this
There's a house upon a distant hill
Where you can hear the laughter of children ring
Guardian angels, they watch from above
Guarding o... read more
These photos tell the story.
When I see the pictures of workers using mops to clean up the beach, I just feel so small.
And when I see rescuers cleaning the oil off pelicans, I wonder where will they go after that?

Spinning 'round and 'round
The whole world a blur
But you are standing
No rubber boots
Running in us
Want to erupt from a shell
And outdoor smell of your hair
I hit as fast as I could
With my nose
Hopping into puddles
With no boots on
And I get nosebleed
But I always get up
