After Brad and Jen got divorced and Brad and Angie posed in a 70 page photo shoot in W magazine, Jen famously said, “Brad seems to have a sensitivity chip missing.” (BTW, Team Aniston forever). Well, we must confess. Nicholas Sparks movies make us feel like we have the same problem. Look, we know you ladies love some The Notebook, but our viewing experience consisted of us sitting there stone faced in a theater full of weeping women. I’ve teared up more during allergy season. Oh and don’t get us started on A Walk to Remember. We’d pretty much rather paint our bedroom bubblegum pink than endure the cloying sweetness of Mandy Moore’s character for another 2 hours. And then we had the unfortunate experience of seeing Dear John on a plane. We thought Delta might as well just bring back their trays of chicken parmesan and wither-y spinach if the goal was to make us completely nauseous. So, no. ”I do” not want to say “I do” to The Vow. What about you? Do you looooove some Nicholas Sparks or are you more excited that Reader JLAL is taking The Vow for real??

If emum taught us how to love cardigans, Britney Spears taught us how to love celebrities. Gone are the days that Reader Isa and elaney were making up dances to the “Oops I Did It Again” video in the living room, but our love for the snake handling, head shavin, gum chewing, former Musketeer lives on. And when we heard about this Britney Spears’ tribute at the VMAs, we couldn’t be more excited!! After Madonna presents her the Lifetime Achievement award, this will be the performance…we can hardly wait!! What about you…will you tune in?
Selena Gomez – “…Baby One More Time”
Katy Perry – “Oops!…I Did It Again”
Janet Jackson – “I’m a Slave 4 U”
Demi Lovato – “Toxic”
Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj – “Gimme More”
Lady Gaga – “Circus”
Britney Spears – “Hold It Against Me/I Wanna Go”

Those of us who were Facebook early adopters (ahem, haters at unnamed schools similar to say, Ole Miss (Reader jennbug) and UGA (Reader shawtygetlow)) remember the days when Facebook was “thefacebook.com.” We remember the days when silly groups were still funny, when there was no Newsfeed, heck we remember when there was no wall!! Even with our intimate knowledge of thefacebook.com’s rise to power, we were skeptical about The Social Network, as movies that capture recent events always seem to tank (think W). But so far, reviews are holding strong at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes! What do you think – are you going to see it?

Three words – they sound so easy, yet they can be so difficult. For all of you out there that love Julia Roberts as much as this Mystic Pizza loving 80s baby, let’s hear it. What did you think about Eat Pray Love? Did it make you want to jump for women’s lib joy? Did it make you feel the travel freedom that comes from lifting your glass any place that doesn’t speak English? Or did it make you want to Drink, Imbitter, Dislike (kinda like the Bachelor Pad makes us feel)? For all of you out there that “just want to marvel at something,” did Eat Pray Love put the skip back in your travel bug prone little self? Or did it feel more like food poisoning, church retreat, and the defeat of the 7th grade dance?

As we learned from our girls, Charlotte, Samantha, Miranda, and Carrie…”Sometimes you just have to get away with the girls”. It’s not Abu Dhabi, but Readers Elinor, Melby, Edykes and elaney are headed to Costa Rica for 8 days. But don’t worry…the elaney interns will take good care of you while we’re gone. Here’s what you have to look forward to:
Monday: Reader Ace
Tuesday: Reader ct
Wednesday: Reader Mo
Thursday: Reader JLAL
Friday: Reader Isa
We will miss you! And we can’t lie…we are afraid of being without bberry / email / elaney for 8 days…but we will take lots of pics and post them when we’re home. Pura Vida!

“I like when you can go from something crass and stupid to something very smart.” - John Cusack
Perhaps John Cusack is the male version of an elaney girl (we’d sub “crass and stupid” with “silly and fun”). Today is the day for Hot Tub Time Machine. When we told our co-workers we kinda wanted to see it, they politely suggested we not tell anyone else that. So…here’s the question: coming off of your The Hangover, and perhaps a little more open to the ridiculousness of movies like this (don’t try to say you didn’t like Wedding Crashers), do you kinda want to see Hot Tub Time Machine?
Reply as Evite Would Want You To:
Yes! Turn the Heat Up
Maybe – The feeling is Lukewarm
No Way. Brrr…What is Wrong with You elaney?

Everyone has days when you wake up, hit your alarm to snooze, skip spin class, and wear your hair wavy. As Atlantans know, today’s weather makes you want to listen to Belle & Sebastian, drink hot tea, and cuddle up on the couch and watch movies during the day. And do laundry. (loooove to do laundry. Love the way clean laundry feels, smells, love the way the house feels when the washing machine and dishwasher are running. Love it love it love it). But alas, work calls. However, if you WERE at home and COULD watch a movie during the day, what are your favorite movies to watch over and over and over again?
