Everybody. Welcome back to. Let's get cynical. I am lizzie. Stewart and i am arden wallet hausky and i don't think we've said this yet but happy pride aid happy celebrating which should be every single that happy bride we are. We are now in june deeply in june. I don't really know where june has gone. She shipping tonight. Yeah this feels just like well. It's because if you are in new york and maybe on the east coast we've been having a lot of rain and like coolish days like we have. We've had a couple of hot summer days but really like not any consistent hot summer days which to me makes june not feel like june because you think junior thank god. It's hot yes but it's not yet like gets it isn't it isn't i. Don't know maybe that's why it doesn't feel like june. I don't i think who knows. Yes i part of it. And then i think for me. I've just been all over the place. And so i don't live in one place i don't. I have not been in a single place longer than a week for the last six weeks. It's a little crazy headaches.
