It was one of those weeks where those passive aggressive thoughts (you know, the ones towards the finance bros in your office who jump on the elevator as the door closes, then jab the “close door” button) turned into some real aggression. We’ve all been there. And I’m using this weekend to re-center in nature. And by nature, I mean the landscaping of the ‘burbs. I’ll take what I can get.
Here’s what you missed this week:
- All hail the Queen of Passive Aggressiveness, Amelia Bedelia. (The New Yorker)
- I don’t know how I missed @paperbackparadise, or @awfullibrarybooks, but now my world is brighter. And weirder. Also, I’m getting a lot of inspiration from @lonely_flannery_oconner. (Mashable)
- Meanwhile, Air New Zealand pole vaulted right over politeness and straight into nudge. Anything to get the last book in a series, amirite? (YouTube)
- We’re filing “why did Agatha Christie disappear for 11 days?” with “how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” The world will never know. (NYT)
