We CAN turn left!

Hello blog world. I am Katinka Ingabogovinanana and I am an ambiturner. What, you may ask, is an ambiturner? In the world of Zoolander, an ambiturner is a model who can turn both right and left at the end of the runway. Derek Zoolander, sadly, cannot turn left for much of the film but right at the end of the movie, when it really matters most he turns left and saves the day with his new look: MAGNUM.

My blog-partner-in-crime (otherwise known as Mugatu) and I firmly believe that we are ambiturners both literally and figuratively. Literally, we both can turn right or left or any combination thereof (don't ask, it's complicated). Figuratively, we are not "one look" individuals. We are both interested in current events, politics, fashion, food, travel, movies, books, and we both love writing. This blog is a way for us to share our admittedly eclectic thoughts with you, blog world, and to hopefully make your day a little brighter, a little funnier, and a little more ridiculously good looking.

I have a couple of delightful posts that will be forthcoming over the next few weeks: travel nightmares, fabulous footwear, and the perils of driving in American cities so be sure to check back to read all about them.

I have a vision.. Let me show you mine

Katinka and I have been contemplating writing a blog together for quite some time, but we've never gotten it off the ground. NO MORE. This post shall serve as an announcement: I am Mugatu, I invented the piano key necktie, and I have an opinion on stuff.

So ground rules. This blog will focus on whatever we feel like. Katinka and I believe that there's something more to life than being really, really ridiculously good looking so we will not be limiting ourselves to a certain theme. That said, we each have our interests and will inevitably end up focusing on them.

To preserve our sanity and our jobs, Katinka and I have decided to limit the amount of personal information available on this blog. So if you know who we are in real life, please do NOT tell us/our bosses/the entire internet our identity in the comments. Remember, everything you put on the internet is forever. While unmasking superheroes may be cool in a history channel documentary, you do not want me to be a hot hot potato.

But enough unpleasantness. I'm sure you'll learn more about us as we post more. For now, I shall leave you with this:

This is how I feel on a regular basis. I'll tell you about it sometime.
