I was going to make this one very long Facebook status, but figured it merited a blog post once I realized I had a lot to say about each thing. Here are my current obsessions – in no particular order.
1. Lyft. If you haven’t heard about Lyft, it is a ride-sharing app that functions like a taxi. You request a “lyft” using the app, and a driver appears within minutes, in his or her own car (but you recognize it as a lyft because it has a mustache on the outside of the car). The person is paid through the company – not by the passengers, so there is no transfer of funds to the individual driving, you pay through the app once you get out of the car. I had been a passenger in a lyft before and marveled at how nice, friendly, and normal the drivers are, but I used the app for the first time myself last night. It is WAY cheaper than a cab, more comfortable/less awkward, and faster. I am all about it, but unfortunately relatively late to the party.
This “experiment” by long term friends reads more like a soap opera – and I am hooked. Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman set out to date each other for 40 days and documented the experience, one day at a time, on their blog. The experiment is over, but there are 5 or so days left of the experiment. Posts will resume again on their website on September 3rd, and the pair has recently signed with CAA. You can say you knew them (online) when…3. This song, currently rocking my spin classes. HUGE shoutout to my friend Ryan for forwarding this to me. Ob-freaking-sessed. Why doesn’t love a little Miley?
4. The Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at Bottega Louie. Wowie.
What app, blog, song, or food item are your currently obsessing over?
