UGH I hate it when a marketing product of capitalism hits me in the feels, like this EXTRA gum ad just did. But as you know, my very first concert was Celine Dion when I was six - you put “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” in any piece of advertising, and I’m a goner.
Facebook’s oversight board upheld the ban of the Former Guy, but also kicked the can down the road six months in asking that Facebook once again revisit it. Sigh: Oversight Board upholds former President Trump’s suspension, finds Facebook failed to impose proper penalty.
I’m not saying this is me, but I’m also not NOT saying this is me: See Fewer People. Take Fewer Showers. Please note, however: I find it necessary to point out that a good evening bath is one of life’s absolute joys and I couldn’t get by without it. (NYT)
Speaking of self care, if you’re not reading Swole Woman Casey Johnston over at Vice, you really should, her adventures in weight lifting and fitness are an absolute delight: What's the Perfect Amount of Exercise I Can Do For Better Sleep?
Reason one million that I love local journalism: We investigated Elon Musk's claim Tesla bought every USB cable in the Bay Area (SFGate)

And finally, did I already share this? I might have already shared this. Whatever, I love it and I cannot stop laughing at it: An Faq About Your New Birth Control: The Music Of Rush (McSweeney’s)
You’re awesome. Be kind to yourself, get that vax, and wear a mask when you need to.
