Share our love of handbags, books, and all things gossip...okay, and Twilight too.

We're two delightfully crass gals who spend an inordinate amount of time texting and e-mailing one another throughout the day. We've decided to expound on some of our best work. Please to enjoy.

Rant Wednesday...and a Shout Out

No, I'm not going to go off on those Twat Rockets who attacked our beloved RPattz the other day. I think we have all seen and heard enough about all that.
CLT - yeah, starting to be my most unfavorite abbreviation ever (right after PHL and ATL)...also known as Charlotte Douglas International Airport. I apologize ahead of time for the second airplane related rant, but this really was too good to pass up. So, as I lay dozing in my seat (it was o'dark 30) waiting to land in Charlotte on Monday, the wheels were down, we were descending, the runway was in sight, and the next thing I knew we were quickly veering up again and my ears were popping like bitches.

Yeah, so if it isn't ground stoppages for weather, runway construction, or other stupidity, CLT is beginning to be the bain of my existence. Oh, and the guy sitting next to me on my next flight was wearing a navy blue sports coat. Nice.

However, I would like to give a huge SHOUT OUT to the pilot of US Airways flight 3111 for not getting me dead on Monday morning.

I don't "do" planes! Glad he pulled back up instead of taking the crash option..

@Aimee - me too...probably if it had been one of the batch of usual young kid pilots (seriously they let 20 year olds fly planes) I would be dead.

Well I'm glad you didn't crash but I still think you've been going on this route long enough that you should be able to take off and land without air traffic controllers. Just "love tap" the other planes and they'll get out of the way ;)
