The second day of june and i bet you are thinking…what don’t I know about today.
Well, I will tell you 5 things.
1-In North Korea, today is Children’s day.
2-Remember a few years ago when that dude won like a zillion games of jeopardy in a row.  No?  Well anyways, his name was Ken Jennings and today was his 74th-game winning streak.  That’s one can of smart-ass.
3- Malcolm Garett turns 54 today.  Don’t know who Malcolm Garrett is?  Well he’s a british graphic designer.  Check out his website here Yes graphic designers are worth mentioning!
4- Today is Justin Long’s birthday he is 32.
5- In 1990 there was a ridiculous tornado outbreak of like 66-89330 tornado’s across Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, killing 12. 7 cows got caught in the tornado inspiring the movie Twister


Well if you don’t know this about Laura and I….I’m totally Charlotte and Samantha and she’s totally Carrie and Miranda. Like hybrid versions of the characters. So let me just say this, I was looking forward to seeing Sex & the City 2. I was utterly and drastically and technically and literally disappointing. The movie had absolutely no plot or point at all. Half of the movie felt like a tourism commercial for Abu Dhabi. The other half was just fashion filler..and I mean not good fashion…way too much jumpsuit action in this flick.

I give this movie 1 ridiculously fashionable rita hat out of 50..yes 50. What about you Laura? Or should I say Carrie and Miranda…no wait those characters are now dead to me.

Thanks Robin, your review was highly insightful, and for once, I COMPLETELY agree with you. what the EFF was that all about?!! I think I would have had more fun going to the gynecologist. this was just bad. which I hate to say, because I am a die hard fan, and I will defend SATC to the grave. But ladies, you were awful. I actually think the movie made me a little stupider. is stupider even a word?!! Well I could have answered that question before I saw the film. I would like to give this film ZERO ritas, but for the sake of showing rita in ridiculous outfits, I give it ONE Abu Dhabi Rita out of FIVE.


I would like to think that Laura and I are both relatively positive people. There are are a few things that we hate though.
These are the top five things I hate:
1- Nickelback
2-Velvet
3-People that wear velvet
4-Excessive ear hair (or ear wax for that matter)
5-rats or mice

Here are the top 5 things that Laura hates: (Laura feel free to change this to things you actually hate)
1- The hamburgular, he keeps stealing my damn burgas
2- Babies that talk super early
3- Sitting giraffes
4-trying to open coconuts
5-hookers that won’t let her photograph them

This guy is funny and he hates a lot more that we do….check out more of his stuff here
