Miss us, dear readers? I’d like to think so. We’re a very fun group of people, once you get to know us.
This week, I’ve been buoyed along by evenings with friends, especially the ladies of The Club. A good friend keeps your head above the surface, preventing immature Coffee Meets Bagel dates and insulting coworkers from dragging you down into the depths, by reminding you of the things you’ll laugh at during your high school reunion, and hosting their birthday parties at bars that serve decent mulled wine.
Which is where many of us were last night, toasting LL’s health and happiness. Tonight, a few of us will scout out a spot for DD to celebrate next month. Will DR create a SurveyMonkey for us to evaluate? Time will tell.
Here’s what you missed this week:
- If you haven’t read Ian Parker’s profile of Dan Mallory (aka AJ Finn), immediately stop what you’re doing and read it. Imagine that guy in your office (you know the one) had all his skeletons unearthed, but instead of feeling vindicated, you’re just skeeved.
- Necessary reading: Kashana Cauley’s brief but important piece on the origins of “woke” and her call to resurrect it from its current sarcastic and dismissive use, as she observes.
- Don’t mind us while we drool over Morgan Parker’s sexy sectional.
- To tag, or not to tag? The slippery slope of tagging authors in…less than positive social media reviews. Because they’re not toasters (or are they?)
- “Doughnuts, like life, will leave their mark.” That’s all
