Hey there, California friends, turns out your state’s a loser!

While Ellie, Liz, and Mike are recent California transplants and like to pretend they’re living in the best place ever.  Turns out that that’s not true!  People are leaving California in droves!

The number of people leaving California for another state outstripped the number moving in from another state during the year ending on July 1, 2008. California lost a net total of 144,000 people during that period — more than any other state, according to census estimates. That is about equal to the population of Syracuse, N.Y.

If you’re not a Hollywood star, California brings nothing but disappointment!

For [Mike Reilly], years of rising taxes, dead-end schools, unchecked illegal immigration and clogged traffic have robbed the Golden State of its allure.

Is there something left of the California dream?

“If you are a Hollywood actor,” Reilly says, “but not for us.”

So that’s that.  California is dying.  Sounds like you guys should pack back up and come east… but not for two weeks, because I’m coming out next Thursday!!!

Ellie and Karen rework the new Match.com ad campaign

me: i just saw a match.com ad
and the tag line was
“I’m just a goof, looking for a ball”
Ellie: “in someone’s mouth”
me: i just think dating website commercials should avoid mentioning balls
but maybe i’m the immature one?
Ellie: probably
it’s a nice template though
we could go on and on
how about
i’m just a cracker
looking for a nut
me: i think that has racial implications too
double score!!!
