Cupcakes, Ramen, and Toast in 4 different cities
Yelp just released a cool tool that lets you explore trends for its 10th anniversary, so naturally we looked up cupcakes, ramen, and toast in 4 different cities.
We’ve recently heard that toast has become a thing, but unfortunately, we couldn’t find it in the data. It’s possible that specialty toast might be mixed up with the normal toast. What we did find was the rise of ramen and decline of cupcakes in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. But we all probably knew that.
Mmm toast and ramen.

A Conversation with Badass Women Mystery Guests!
One of my fave NerdHQ’s panels by far!
I’ve watched this a few times now — it’s real good.
Kudos to Nerd HQ for putting together a panel diverse in not only the roles and genres these ladies play, but also in age and ethnicity. High-fives all around for the Retta invite alone! Treat yo self indeed.
Lightning in L.A.
Room just lit up. Thunder soon followed. A storm is coming.
Maybe. (It is L.A. After all)
Also during my second call with TWC, I didn’t even have to provide additional verification on my account. What the hell!?
Wow, it’s like night and day. This second service call was way more pleasant.
Omg! I’m on hold again after I was hung up on by TWC because they couldn’t wait two minutes for me to download my last bill for account verification!!

My goodness, I never realized one could crave the sounds of conversational Swedish, but thank goodness it’s Thursday!
