Friday. Five Favorites. Enough alliteration, let's go.
OMG ice cream: I've been wanting to try Jeni's Ice Cream for a while now so I went to get it at Whole Foods and saw it was $10 a pint which is kind of insane. Andrew noticed Steve's Ice Cream on the next shelf and the flavors sounded delightful. I deferred to him to pick (I'm indecisive) and we ended up with Mexican Chili Chocolate - divine. Rich chocolate, a kick of pepper, and a few chunks throughout that are kind of like chocolate covered rice crispies. At $5.50 per pint, it's a little bit of a splurge but divided by the suggested four servings (which we actually stuck to!), it isn't too bad. I want to try the NOLA coffee and donuts next time. (You guys should know by now that this is not sponsored - I just share food when I'm excited about it).
Favorite Theory: Can we talk about 24 for a sec? If you've watched the show, then you might know about the "silent beeps" - basically, after a major character dies or someone sacrifices themselves, the beeps on the clock go silent. On Monday's episode (spoiler alert) someone died selflessly and there were audible beeps... so did he really die? My theory is that Chloe did something to what the bad guys were seeing on the camera and Jack got him out just in time so if that happens, you heard it here first.
Free stuff: I'm in charge of handling reservations for a conference room at work and I prefer to do it on a paper calendar. Not one to waste money on something so basic, I normally print boring templates off the internet for this purpose. I came across these cute calendar pages earlier this week and I fully intend to have an upgraded calendar for 2015. It's Erin Condren pretty without the price tag.
Favorite Funny: I read a list of things that kids born in 2000 wouldn't know about, and since my niece was, I decided to ask her about a few things. I asked her what a pound sign was. She tried to fist bump me and asked if she was right. Oh goodness. Kids today will not be able to work the voice mail at their offices in ten years! I felt so old.
Long Weekend: My nieces are in town this week so I'm taking off today and Monday to hang out with them and just do regular weekend things. Then, I have jury duty on Tuesday, so I won't be back at work until Wednesday and doing stuff will likely diminish my desire to sit in front of a computer so you may see less of me. I'll still be on twitter and instagram, of course. It feels really presumptuous to tell you this but at the same time, I always wonder where people went if they're MIA from their blogs for too long. So pretend like you asked and I'm not just a jerk thinking you'll notice, okay?
