Despite a “whelming” week, I did find a few silver linings in it! Fortunately for me they came in the form of two of my favorite things: magazines and jalapenos.
I read a lot…magazine, books, pointless internet fobber, cereal boxes. Call me a nerd, that’s ok. Earlier in the fall on a trip to NYC, Whit introduced me to a local magazine named Akron Life that discusses all of the happenings in the Akron area. I liked it immediately..it reminded me of one of my favorite places in the whole world: Pittsburgh. When I lived there I was obsessed with the culture of the city…there was always something going on, something new and exciting, and tons of publications to let me know about all of it.
Upon our return from NYC, I found a Groupon for a subscription for Akron Life..SCORE! I received my first issue last month, loved it of course, but was even more excited when I got my issue this month. Why? My friend (and the greatest hairdresser on the planet) Lisa is on the cover and is featured in the “Single in the City” article!
While I am excited Lisa got the cover, I was extremely disturbed by a little snippet I read while I thumbed through the magazine. For those who subscribe, please consult page 10. As someone who absolutely hated the “50 Shades of Grey” series, I find this hilarious and can’t help but share it with you. The books are terrible, people, there is no need to freak out.
After I read the article, I decided I need to fall off the health wagon and indulge in a little gift my pal Xtina gave me to try. I feel the need to state that earlier in the week, Xtina, asked the vending machine guy at the school to bring her an entire case of these delights for her brother. I did question why a case was needed, but after eating the bag she gave me, it all makes sense. I present you with the greatest bag of chips ever created in the history of life:
God Bless you, Jalapeno. I am so glad you found your way into my life.
