A big topic of conversation between Aaron and I is always interesting bits of news we found on the internet. We have always been very active in being informed on the happenings of the world so I thought I would share a few. While Aaron is usually sharing note-worthy information, I'm usually an advocate of the weird, quicky, healthy, or downright silly facts on the world wide web! I will probably continue posts like these once or twice a week.
1) The new types of women. This article talks about how women have changed over the past few decades and how ad agencies are no longer marketing their products to the stay at home housewife. It's neat to see how women have evolved. Are you an Indie Woman, A Mom Achiever, or an Aplha Goddess?
2) Anyone with a gym membership can tell you that there are always one or two stereotypes that irk the hell out of them during their workout. The pet peeves that top my list are those girls who come to the gym dolled up, full makeup and jewelry, and then walk on the treadmill at a 2.5 pace for 20 minutes. Really???? I also cannot stand 'those people' who sit on a machine for an hour on their cell phones. Honey I understand that talking to your boyfriend is an integral part of your gym experience, but some of us actually want to workout while we are here. GET OFF THE MACHINE. Enough ranting..just read the article. :)
3) How about a little sand with your Big Mac? Mcdonald's released this article recently discussing that they were removing a 'pink slime' ingredient from their foods. The article comes with a yummy picture of said slime that makes you re-consider running to the Golden Arches for lunch today. That article spurred an internet chain reaction of people investigating other products in the chain's ingredients list. It's no secret that fast food items are made of less than appetizing things, but some of them are downright scary. I'll step off my soapboax by saying that I for one enjoy a nice big greasy cheeseburger occasionally, but hold the pink slime. I found this article today that talks about a few other scary items lurking in your nuggets...like sand for instance.
4) Happy Leap Day! I had to include a leap day related article. Anyone seen the movie Leap Day? If not, let me summarize it for you. Girl is dating super successful hot wall street type who won't marry her, girl goes to Ireland to propose to said super successful wall street type, girl experiences expected issues along the way like flight cancellations, cows in the road, and mud on her Louis Vuittons, girl falls in love with super charming rugged and yet mildly dorky Irishman who has offered to help her get to her soon to be fiance. Fill in some arguing, bickering, and moments where wall street type proves he is a total loser, and wrap it up with a big fat Irish happy ending where girl and boy live happily ever after. This movie was basically an excuse to make a chick flick out of that age old Irish tradition where a woman can ask a man to marry her on the Leap Day and a man must say yes! So here is an article about this acutal history of the tradition.
Don't worry Aaron..you're safe today.
That's it for now! I'm off to chow down on some delicious chicken fettucini alfredo leftover from last nights dinner. Happy Leap Day everyone!
