It was the year Tina and the Engineer got married on June 20!
Tina is one of the Challenge co-hosts and the one who keeps all of us in line. She’s originally from Sweden and moved to the USA when she was a kid. Tina is sharp, smart, and sassy. (She won’t deny that last one!) She’s also the most dedicated friend you will ever have and more fun that a barrel full of monkeys. (Or Swedish meatballs – take your pick.) Tina just rocks and I’m honored she’s my friend. Find her at Life is Good.

April Movie Preview – Part One
Here is part one of the upcoming theatrical releases for April! (Part two tomorrow.) As always, descriptions courtesy of the IMDB. Snarky comments by me.
April 4 –
Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and battles a new threat from old history: the Soviet agent known as the Winter Soldier.
Directors: Anthony Russo | Joe Russo | Joss Whedon
Stars: Chris Evans, Frank Grillo, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson
It’s Captain Flippin’ America – what more do you need to know?
April 11 –
It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all: his father-in-law.
Director: Carlos Saldanha
Stars: Rodrigo Santoro, Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Jesse Eisenberg
I’ve sat through stupid talking rats, cats, dogs, lions, and other critters – I guess I can manage another stupid talking bird film.
The General Manager of the Cleveland Browns struggles to acquire the number one draft pick for his team.
Director: Ivan Reitman
Stars: Jennifer Garner, Kevin Costner, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Welling
Like everything else associated with the Cleveland Browns, this film will probably be a train wreck.
A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon.
Director: Mike Flanagan
Stars: Brenton Thwaites, Karen Gillan, Katee Sackhoff, James Lafferty
Possible Katee Sackhoff boob shot. Enough said. (Blood, boobs, and carnage!)
