Remember, they are just as scared of you.

Remember, they are just as scared of you.

Tonight, Mazall and I happened upon The Edge, aka the ultimate bromance movie, written by David Mamet, starring Anthony Hopkins and the always-entertaining Alec Baldwin.  In case you haven’t seen it (though I’m pretty sure we were the last two people on Earth not to), the two men find themselves stranded in Canada and/or Alaska after birds attack their plane.  Not only was the movie awesome, but it also taught us valuable lessons/skillz for surviving the wilderness in case we ever crash there in our private plane.  They are as follows: Continue reading


How the Other Half Lives: the Black Tie Edition

Not our Claire

Not our Claire

We don’t say “No” to much. Throw in a nice round number of celebs, free martinis, and a reason to wear sparkles, and you pretty much seal the deal. Which is what happened Tuesday night, more or less, with a way fancy event we are calling the “Newsweek 99” (wait for it).

Oh, except that Molly did say “No”, for unfortunate reasons we won’t go into here. Needless to say, Claire was wrought with devastation. “BUT WE COULD HAVE BLOGGED IT!,” she e-squeaked. “And we still can,” said Molly.

What the F is wrong with Ingrid Newkirk

25 Mar

So PETA’s president/co-founder/dried up old—you know, I shouldn’t finish that thought— has posted her will on the Internet, in all its mentally unhinged, pink background glory. Note the photograph. Ms. Newkirk looks sort of like Ellen Degeneres, sort of like Stuart Smalley and sort of like that mannish woman who is in all those Christopher Guest movies.
