Michelle is a Labor and Delivery nurse and as a nurse her day was probably more disgusting than yours.
Michelle’s favorite things include:
- Her down comforter
- Aggressively quoting movies and tv shows at her friends and family
- Singing, humming and/or whistling constantly, even when people wish she would stop
- Eating frosting right out of the can with a spoon
- Obsessively over-researching any place she travels to
- Watching reality medical shows that gross other people out with the gusto of a diehard football fan
- Over-photographing her entire life and that of everyone around her
- And most importantly of all: finding the perfect doughnut place in every city she visits
Kayla is an eternal student of the world, currently getting her PhD in biomedical sciences and she only emerges from the lab when dragged.
Kayla’s favorite things include:
- Going to yoga every day. Sometimes twice a day
- Demonstrating yoga poses when tipsy, which often ends up with her falling on the floor
- Cooking a ton of really yummy food, thereby making her friends feel inadequate (but so grateful)
- Once drinking so much coffee in college that she told Michelle that she was “vibrating” as her hands were shaking
- Spending so much time voluntarily working that her friends consider staging an intervention for her.
Kayla and Michelle met in 1999 when they both performed in a children’s theatre version of Huckleberry Finn. The turning point in their relationship was their song and dance performance to “I Wanna Be Like You” from The Jungle Book. Little did they know that pictures of them as monkeys from that pre-show would haunt them for the rest of their lives.
They went on to become great friends in their teens, sharing numerous trips to Disney World, New York City, to college auditions and many other random places along the way. Eventually they would end up sharing an apartment at Florida State for two LONG years. Many late nights, shows spent performing as men, long drives belting out show tunes and fun times later, they decided the world could not go on without a blog venture from them.
So here you go, our shout into the void.
