Pumpkin chips and a new host

October 7, 2012 | No Comments »

I’m so sorry for not posting yesterday. I was pretty busy during the day. During the night I finally did something that I’ve been putting off for the past 2 years. I switched to a new host! Actually, Sarah of OneStarryNight.com did it for me. Otherwise I’d still be stuck with the old host dealing with crazy slow loading time, timing out, errors, and downtime. Sarah is pretty awesome at what she does. If you need anything site related (I’m sure she can pretty much do it all) you should go check out her ‘hire me’ page. Her prices are very fair and she works swiftly like a fox. Foxes ARE swift, aren’t they? I’m pretty sure I just called her foxy. Anyway, the loading time… I’m SO sorry about that! It was much worse on my end though. It would take me a whole 5 minutes to make a change that should have only taken a few seconds. Take a look at the photos Sarah texted me last night.

Here is the before.

And here is the after.

Maybe it doesn’t seem like much to you, but to me that’s a world of a difference. I seriously can’t deal with a slow loading site. Something had to be done. I really hope that things will run a lot more smoothly around here from now on. Especially during Vegan MoFo.

THANK YOU, Sarah! <3

Now onto the good stuff. Sort of.

The other day while walking around World Market I came across these pumpkin chips. Since I love pumpkin and my Vegan MoFo theme is pumpkin I figured I could accomplish 2 things. A post and filling my tummy with some pumpkin goodness. Except I really didn’t care for them. I really wanted to like them. I’ve never seen or heard of a pumpkin chip before. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw them. They ARE crispy (I wasn’t expecting them to actually be crispy) and they taste very pumpkiny, but there was something about it that I didn’t like. I think it was the oil? It tasted like the chip absorbed quite a bit of it and when I bit into it I was left an oily taste in my mouth. The packaging is pretty though!
