Rapture or Bust

Alright, there are two possible outcomes for this weekend; stay or go. If you haven't heard, there are several thousand zealous folks who think that the end of the world will come to pass on Saturday, May 21st. In case you're scurred, here's their website, (spoiler alert!). This leads me to believe that there are two avenues of life with which I should focus this weeks' blog on, chillaxing and jumping ship.

If you are sticking around: There was an awesome study published this week that links coffee consumption to cancer-maulin'! Apparently, "Coffee contains many biologically active compounds, including caffeine and phenolic acids, that have potent antioxidant activity and can affect glucose metabolism and sex hormone levels. Because of these biological activities, coffee may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer." (JCNI, 2011) Hooray (if you are a coffee-drinking dude, anyway)! Us chicks will have to rely on our old fashioned heart-healthy diet of red wine to fight the cancer away. Drat!

If you are leaving the planet forever and destined for a Better Place: There is no greater way to shuffle off this mortal coil than with decadence and indulgence. Before you hop that last lonely bus for Atlantic City, to carelessly gamble away your hard-earned fortunes and the inheritance you planned on leaving your grandchildren, be sure to stop by Capogiro 20th Street for the end-all of deliciousness. If I were going to meet my maker tomorrow, I would first want to first indulge in a gigantic cup of Strawberry Tequila Sorbetto with a wee dollop of Hazelnut Gelato on the side, just to round things off. Then, I would hop over to Capo Penn and enjoy a series of delicious gelato cocktails. If you're going to go, go with a vengeance!
