Happy Friday to everyone who gets to not go to work the days after Friday! While I am slaving away drinking wine, please feel free to peruse the following for some light reading:
10 things you should NEVER say to people who have to be gluten free– DEAR GOD PLEASE WORLD, MEMORIZE THIS. The whole GF trend thing is getting out of hand, to the point where I don’t trust ANYONE. I went to Capitol Cider the other day, which is basically a Celiac’s Mecca. But I gave the poor waiter the third degree because I couldn’t believe that there is really a place in this world that will make me GF Fish n’Chips. Related, I died of happiness. And then drank this beautiful, wonderful beer:

This Mean Girls quiz is something that we should all do, because that’s just like the rules of feminism. I got every single question right. Not even embarrassed. Ok, a little embarrassed.
This must read piece on Gwyneth “Goopy” Paltrow’s new beauty line. I can only assume it’s called Goop, and everything will be made of Velveeta cheese.
I am weirdly fascinated by this review of eyebrow tattooing. Is it weird that I’m mildly tempted? Thankfully for my parents, it’s pretty prohibitive (almost $600 for the whole thing) but it’s still intriguing.
And finally, this ridiculous story about a 19 year old who casually found some original photos from the first Nirvana show ever. This is the best quote “I guess it was historical, and I didn’t know it”. I died a little inside reading that.
FIRSTLY: YOU GUYS. I think I made a miracle occur with last week’s post about hot yoga because my favorite studio in Atlanta just announced another Groupon– $69 for 10 passes! A drop in is $18, so it’s WELL worth it to sign up. And seriously, I don’t even live in Atlanta anymore so you know I’m not just pimping this place out to get free classes. ATL hot yoga is awesome AF, and I am all about spreading the love and karma.
Speaking of love- this week’s addition to the Musical Mondays playlist is a little gem called “Electric Love” by Børns. Per the name, I thought he was from a Scandinavian country, as some of the greatest musicians of all time are, but turns out he’s from Grand Haven.
I honestly like almost everything I’ve heard so far, so I added a bonus song to the playlist as well. You’ll have to visit me on Spotify to find that one, though, so get on it!
As always, I hope your week is off to an excellent start and if not, I hope you have a nice bottle of wine something relaxing planned for later. Happy listening!
Per always, this week FLEW by. One of my very best friends has been in town with her ever-growing kids, so I’ve been getting in a lot of quality time with these little blonde angel babies. It’s rare that we’re both in Idaho at the same time, and this is the first time we’ve really been able to spend more than a couple of hours together in years.
How great is the view from Hayley’s parent’s house? Idaho. Is. The. Greatest.
As promised, here are some links for your (pre)weekend reading pleasure:
–The Slate News Quiz I haven’t been on top of it lately (probably due to not working at a desk all day anymore!) but the Slate News Quiz is one of my Friday go-tos. I’ve probably mentioned this before, but (one of) my life goal(s) is to be a contestant on Jeopardy! and I absolutely love trivia. All of the questions are written by bazillion time Jeopardy! champion, Twitter-all star, and general hero of our time, Ken Jennings.
Total sausage-fest at this Joann Fabric right now.
-These sad Pluto memes are simultaneously depressing and hilarious, as most truly great things are.
-You must read this extremely important piece on what your favorite Clueless character says about you. For the record, I think the more important question here would be is there anyone who actually LIKES Tai? I assume the only thing that says about a person is “you are the worst”.
-I’ve shared this parody “guided meditation video with so many people and have yet to find someone who doesn’t love it. Be forewarned, it’s a little profane.
