5 Things to Talk About During Happy Hour
Everyone knows it’s impolite to talk with your mouth full, so we’re skipping the usual lunch break news today and going straight for the after-work cocktails. Here are five things to talk about over happy hour:
1. Adele reportedly announces new album and tour
According to the World Music Awards’ Twitter, Adele “confirmed” a 2015 tour and a new album titled 25. While you and your tear ducts await, however, here’s a new song by Catey Shaw called “Brooklyn Girls,” which is apparently making The Cut cry too. [NYMag]
2. Jill Abramson is DGAF about getting fired from The Times
In an interview with Cosmo, former executive editor of the New York Times opens up about her recent firing from the publication. While she admits that a nasty Politico article made her cry, she has no regrets about sharing authentic emotion, saying that’s the best advice she can give. She adds that the tremendous support she received from women after the article was published was at least one positive outcome. [Cosmopolitan]
3. Introducing “Bloodfeast” for your period munchies. (This one’s really fun for Happy Hour!)
Marie Lodi penned her first installment of “Bloodfeast,” a new period-foods-themed recipe column for The Hairpin. In it, she presents her Nutella Bacon Burger in honor of what she calls her “Blood in, Blood Out,” ritual. A feast for your ovaries. [The Hairpin]
4. The Chrissy Teigen Diet
In a profile of Chrissy Teigen for The Times Dining section this week, the model is praised for her unabashed love of food and wide-ranging palette, which is confusing because her first quote is this: “I lick the cheese off Doritos and put them back in the bag.” [NYTimes]
5. Stop wasting money on almond milk.
In an article titled, “Lay Off the Almond Milk, You Ignorant Hipster,” Mother Jones makes you feel like a dumbass for spending all that money on what is basically almond-flavored water. A number crunch reveals: “a jug of almond milk containing roughly 39 cents worth of almonds, plus filtered water and additives, retails for $3.99.” Put that in your blender and smoke it. [Mother Jones]
That said…can I get my White Russian made with almond milk, please?
