How You Say

Seriously, is there anything that can’t found on youtube? This video has 200,000+ views. Didn’t think many people even eat quinoa, let alone need to pronounce it.

Sexy Alexi started every other sentence with, how you saaaay…, which is quite contagious even if you do know how to say – that’s the part about dating euros that no one ever tells you.

Umami Burger is now around the corner from our apartment, opened Monday. We tried to go but they closed early. Tried again yesterday but the line was too long for cranky pants husband since we needed to get back to the shop. Maybe third time’s the charm? And off we go.

See you upstate!

Award-winning accolades aside, most of us just couldn’t get in to it. Not since Perfume: The Story of a Murder have the majority of us disliked a book so much. And we’ve been drinking meeting for over seven years.

Wolf Hall

Hosting book club and seemed only fitting to serve tomato aspic in remembrance of King Henry VIII. Plus Wolf Hall is almost 700 hundred pages, which feels like 1,000,000 pages on kindle, so booze in all formats is required.
