Inspiration for my new place
I read an interesting article in Smithsonian Magazine by Tom Vanderbilt titled “Why We Like What We Like”. The article examines what influences our likes and dislikes when it comes to what we eat. In the article Vanderbilt explores the idea that words trigger us to order certain foods. He calls it “onomatopoetic” I call it “heart on words”, words that turn you on. I’ve been doing some thinking about my “heart on words”. It is easy for me to name ingredients I like and dislike but it is harder for me to think of descriptive words. What are your heart on words?
It wasn’t easy but we did it! We found an apartment. Finding a place to live this time of year proved to be harder than we thought. Most owners don’t like to start leases during the winter but lucky for us we found a newly remodeled apartment in Wicker Park. In the short time we had in between looking at apartments we tried to see as much of Chicago as we could and let me tell you, we cannot wait to go back.
The other day I was looking for hot chili oil at Whole Foods and was greeted by the most attractive man in the world and this was not the first time this has happened. What is up with hot guys working at Whole Foods? Is it a Seattle thing? Is there nothing else they could do besides stock shelves? You’re telling me Wilhelmina New York couldn’t sign them?
