"That's Me."

Note: This is from 2011.


Kathy Proctor, the lady at last night's Snooze of the Union address who let the two people around her know that there was a STAR among them.

As the hairs on the back of Obama's head singed from being so close to two human tanning beds in suits, he talked about a mother of two and furniture industry employee who is getting her degree in biotechnology and earned her PhD in thatsmeology last night. When Obama started talking about her, Kathy subtly and repeatedly dropped a quiet "that's me" into the ears of her seat neighbors and the lady seat neighbor next to her subtly threw an "I know she's not about to tell me that's her... Oh yeah, she is" side-eye.

If the president was talking about my ass on live TV, fuck yeah I'd do what Kathy did. But I'd be a little more discreet about it. I'd wear a spandex bodysuit with THAT'S ME written in Christmas lights on my chest and as soon as he started talking about me, I'd make it light up with the touch of a button. But obviously, I'm a little more demure than Kathy.

And we can make fun of Kathy all we want, but we all know who she is now, right? So whenever somebody is talking about a furniture industry employee who is getting her degree in biotechnology, we will all shout out: THAT'S KATHY!

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
