The iPhone 6 is coming… are you ready?

The iPhone 6 releases tomorrow morning bright and early! Are you ready? Record-breaking pre-orders have poured in and news outlets have been reporting lines already snaking around prominent apple flagship stores filled with people hopeful to get their hands on the new tech. It seems like it’s always like this with apple releases, a veritable free-for-all of orders, lines, and delays as demand far outstrips supply. Whoever is in charge of promoting scarcity based excitement at apple deserves a raise. But let’s look at things from a positive light. Let’s say, tomorrow you will be one of the lucky few holding aloft your new phablet. What are you going to do to protect it? Continue reading

Arrrrrrr! Who’s Up For Some Treasure?

Arrrrrrrrr, there be treasure in them thar hills… er water! At least I’m pretty sure that’s what pirate-type people say. That, and a lot of ‘ahoy mateys’, ‘yo ho a pirate’s life for me’, and ‘why is all the rum gone’. Yes, I imagine pirates as a radical cross between a Disney cartoon and Captain Jack Sparrow. Anyways, before I launched into what I’m sure was a super amusing tangent on pirates I meant to post a blog about what it is, besides rum that pirates love most, treasure. And not just any treasure, but x-marks the spot, worth many a gold doubloon treasure.  *There are major bonus points for those of you who actually knew how to spell doubloon before reading this post, because I did not.  Continue reading

Say cheese?

It is, without a doubt, my grandmother’s favorite part of any wedding, the cake. And I can’t really blame her. Whether it’s classic white layer cake, tasty cupcakes, or a delicious smorgasbord of pies, cookies, and pastries, it’s always the perfect sweet treat to end the night. However, this isn’t exactly the type of cake grandma had in mind.

It looks like a wedding cake. It has tiers, they’re colorful, and it even looks like it’s covered in fondant. But this wedding confection isn’t a confection at all. In fact, it’s not even sweet. Why? Continue reading
