2 Things On My Mind…

March 26, 2009

1. While running errands, I had my radio on and heard an ad for a local nightclub.  They were advertising a competition that was called “itty bitty” (or something to that effect) and the grand prize was a breast enhancement!  WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE???? I could not believe that they were using that as a prize…what has the world come to??  I literally said, “WHAT?” out loud…by myself…in my car.  That’s the end of my rant.  Enough said.

2. “Overhead-Bin Bullies”

So, if you ever happen to see us in the airport, you’ll see us each with our backpacks (mine is WAY cooler cause mine has wheels), our purses and generally a tall Starbucks…(can’t drink too much before you get on a plane, ya know?) So on our last flight, Jill and I had boarded early…set our backpacks nicely above us in the overhead bin and started settling in to our exit row seats 🙂 Shortly thereafter, a woman boarded who had a seat in front of us and asked if she could move our backpacks and stack them on top of each other so she could fit her small suitcase in our spot.  Jill immediately looked down to avoid eye contact & confrontation and I politely said, “Sorry, but no.” I didn’t want our computers to get crushed and since my backpack has wheels, it could and would have done some damage to Jill’s. So more time passes and one of the last passengers to board, strolls up to our area and declares to the 25 people around us…”I’m going to move these backpacks and take them down 6 rows and shove them in a tiny spot so I can fit my bag in this spot.”  I could not believe it….twice in ONE flight.  Just because our bags aren’t as big, people were trying to take our spot.  So I, for the second time on this flight, looked her square in the eyes and just said, “No. Sorry. We’d like our bags to stay there.  Thank you.”  She was not pleased.  But I was…it felt really good to say no.  Not becauase I was trying to be a jerk–but because gosh darn it, I don’t like being bullied on a plane. 

Alright…that’s all for now.

Jill’s Birthday Bowling Extravaganza…

March 21, 2009

cupcakesSo this past Wednesday, March 18th, we were in Chicago and decided to celebrate Jill’s birthday with some bowling & impromptu karaoke. It was a grand occasion…we saw fine forms of bowling and…what birthday is complete without pink Hannah Montana cupcakes???

Yet, I (kate) had an interesting thing happen on this festive evening. The injury happened right in between these two pictures….take a look at the “before” and “after” pictures.

groupSomeone (not naming names…) thought it would be funny to smash a cupcake in my face…yet along with the  cupcake in my face went the candle and plastic Hannah Montana star RIGHT in my eye.  

after

This, however could not stop the amazingness of the evening…so we partied on and sang our hearts out at a dive karaoke bar. But, the next day I did see a Dr. and he told me I had a hemorrhage in my eye. Stupid cupcakes…and I even picked them out.  Good times.

New Song on the 17th!

March 17, 2009

So, we decided to do something special for this new song on the 17th…it’s St. Patrick’s Day….it’s Jill’s birthday tomorrow…so why not do something special?

We recorded a new song called “Sarah” and we posted it on our myspace page. It’s a very broken down version–just us and guitar.  

Go check it out…and if some of you are sad that you aren’t seeing us in a video blog…hold your horses…we’re uploading a video blog we did at SNL the other night.

Love, hugs and Shamrocks all around…
