Wilson's taking a leave of absence today and tomorrow, but none of that matters because Natali Del Conte is taking his seat for both shows! Today, she gives us a quick review of "Sex and the City 2" and shows off the nerd bling schwag they gave her at the premiere!

Natali and our own MTI checked out the premiere of "Sex and the City 2" courtesy of HP, and all she got was a bedazzled USB key necklace. In fact, she tells us the movie is worse than "Prince of Persia" because a lot of the scenes trivialize the suffering and injustices to women common in the actual UAE.

Perhaps equally heinous is the fact that Carrie Bradshaw uses a Mac, while everyone else in the movie suffers with PCs. In short, I'll leave it to Natali's tweet to tell you everything you need to know about SATC 2: "Thankfully we didn't pay for it. It was a press event. So I'd say worth the money we paid."

Natali also brings us a full rundown of stories, including a mysterious phone that might have belonged to the Grim Reaper. A service carrier overseas has finally suspended the number 0888-888-888 after every person who owned it within the last 10 years died an untimely death.

No, this is not a "Lost" spinoff; the phone number might actually hold a curse similar to the "Amityville Horror" house or the curse of the Black Pearl. We should also note that all three previous owners heavily engaged in criminal activity and subsequently suffered brutal deaths: a Russian mafia lord, a crooked businessman, and a drug smuggler--oh my!

We also have plenty more stories about why certain songs get stuck in your head and five reasons why it's still not cool to admit you're a gamer, but we also want to send a huge thanks to our buddy Jim, currently stationed overseas in Afghanistan.

Jim sent us a video of a sticker attached to a resupply drop, as well as a handful of awesome photos of his base (now adorned with 404 stickers). Stay safe, Jim, and let us know if you need more stickers or temporary tattoos! Check out the slideshow below!
