I am STOKED about Lollapalooza. I didn’t want to gamble with a three-day pass, because I wasn’t wild about the leaked headliners (which, if I can get on my soap box for one second: all right, Lolla, I get it. You’re a big deal, and you know you’re a big deal, and you know people are going to throw their credit cards at you just by virtue of the fact that you’re Lollapalooza. But honestly, it’s just a really arrogant move to put $250 tickets on sale before you announce ANY of the acts. And no, you clearly didn’t need my $250, since you got that sum from plenty of others within the space of like an hour, BUT STILL. That’s not the point. You’re going to sell out regardless — just announce your stupid lineup, or at least part of it, before putting passes on sale. *dismounts soap box*). Naturally, after the lineup came out, I really wish I had bought a three day pass, but whatever. I’ve got a pass for Sunday and it’s gonna be siiiiiiiiiiiiick. Current goals: Betty Who, London Grammar, Flume, Glen Hansard, The 1975, Skrillex. Now I just have to hope and pray not too many of those acts overlap. (Wait. Is it not normal I’m hoping to see acts that either scream “indie” or acts that scream “EDM” and nothing else? Haha. Talk about eclectic taste.)
Officially officially, I’m not 100% registered for the marathon at this point, because you can’t fully complete your registration until April, but whatever. Close enough. This year, I’ll be running the marathon for OAR Run for Autism. Yes, I want your money. All of your money. I need to raise $1,000, and I currently have $950 to go. So. Who wants to donate to my cause?? :D
3. Last Friday, I made my once-monthly visit to Whole Foods to restock my almond milk supply. (I actively avoid shopping at Whole Foods as much as possible, because bad things happen to one’s bank account at Whole Foods. There is far too much temptation at that store.) Whole Foods keeps its almond milk by all its other shelf-stable fake milks (soy, rice, etc.), and on this trip, I discovered a new kind of boxed milk.
Quinoa milk! I’ve never heard of this before! I’m very curious about it, but I’m definitely NOT curious enough to drop $5.99 (or $3.99 before April 1) on a box of it.
Who am I going to see at Lolla?? What days are you going? Who are you excited to see?
What are some unique grocery store items you’ve seen lately? Quinoa milk definitely takes the cake for me, but I feel like Trader Joe’s is always coming up with something interesting.
Any donors out there? OAR is a great cause…!
