Here’s what we’ve been up to:
What we’re eating: Way too much birthday cake. And it’s not even my birthday! But I don’t want to lick the icing off. Get it? Why must so many people be born at the start of the school year? And why do we need to order a whole cake every time?
What we’re watching: Orange Is The New Black. This show has everything worth talking about right now: America’s prison system, contemporary racial relations, and lesbians. It’s almost funny enough to make us forget our disappointment with a certain Netflix exclusive season of another show about the developments after a surprise arrest.
What we’re listening to: “Hold On We’re Going Home” by Drake. Drizzy hops on the retro-leaning pop music bandwagon from this summer and lays down the smoothest track we’ve heard in a while. Think “Get Lucky” but more housey and less obnoxiously repetitive, or “Blurred Lines” but more laidback and less capacity for filling our news feeds with Jezebel articles.
What we’re reading: 40 Days of Dating. Reality television meets tumblr in this dating experiment conducted by two NYC graphic designers who have opposite relationship problems (she commits too soon, he runs away from commitment). Sure, it sometimes reads like a bad rom-com, but it’s the most fun way to get your voyeurism on since the Shiba Inu Puppy Cam. Plus, we’re suckers for quirky typefaces.
What we’re drinking: Moroccan Mint Tea from Book Trader Café. Yalies are back in town, and so is the Moroccan Mint Tea at Book Trader. It’s minty and it’s from Morocco (okay, we’re at least sure that it’s minty). How can you resist?
