Qdoba is Outie

PEACEQDOBADear Qdoba,

As Celine Dion once said:

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
And I love Burritos

So you’re closing and I keep flashing back to when you said forever and always. It rains in your kitchen; everything is wrong. It rains when you’re here, and it rains when you’re gone. ‘Cause I was there when you said, “Burritos! Always!” You didn’t mean it, baby.

I’ll just have to go to Chipotle now. On second thought, that doesn’t make me very sad at all. PEACE QDOBA!

Now that we’ve sufficiently moved on via Celine and Taylor, it’s time to look to the future: Alice and Olivia is opening in Qdoba’s place. Why couldn’t these two stores just make an agreement to sell burritos and adorable dresses together? I would never leave.

Here are some Alice and Olivia ensembles that may be better than Mexican food:

Note that we are choosing $500 dresses here over $6 burritos. So this may not be an even match or a smart choice — but look at that puffy skirt!

Moral of the story is: spend money on expensive dresses when Mexican food eateries break your heart.

Name a Baby Panda!

It’s so cute, I’m crying. The Smithsonian National Zoo, just around the corner in D.C., is deciding on a name for its baby panda bear. On December 1, when the baby panda turns 100 days old, she’ll officially be given one of these five names:

 precious, treasure.

arling, delicate flower. 

charming dragon.

Chinese warrior in the fifth century, who we all know and love from the Disney movie. Mulan also means magnolia flower.

 treasure or valuable. 

The best part? You get to choose which one the little cuddle bear gets! Well, it’s not completely up to you but you get to vote on it! You may know the tiny cutie pie from The Giant Panda Cam (no it’s not the camera that’s giant) that lives streams from the Smithsonian Zoo’s website and follows the baby and her mother throughout the day. If you’ve been watching that Panda Cam for a while I can imagine you’d be pretty attached because I fell in love with the little black and white cookie in the few minutes that it took to watch this video:

You can vote on your favorite name HERE! And if you really feel passionately about it (which I certainly do!) you can vote every 24 hours until November 22 when voting closes. Good luck choosing a name *cough* Long Yun *cough* and good luck trying to hold back tears in Lau as you watch that baby-mama-panda video over and over again.
