Cannabis Gravy Is The Late-Stage Capitalism We Deserve.
My darlings! It’s been so long. And while half of you are probably already out for (American) Turkey Day, and the other half of you are still working and doing your best to work through everything on your plates before you too escape to a land of butter, more butter, and cannabis gravy (I’m sorry, what?!,) I hope you’ll still appreciate a hodgepodge of stuff I wasn’t able to read over the weekend. And why, you may ask, have I still not caught up on my Instapaper queue? Because I had a weekend of recovering after last week, filled with sleep, more sleep, ice cream, tired yoga, getting foodstuffs at Costco, and bingeing Man in the High Castle. I’M DOING GREAT, FRIENDS. DOING GREAT.
FYI, this here Missive will again be off on Thursday and Friday. Tomorrow will be a special Holiday Reading/Listening/Watching List.
TO THE INTERNET!
Open on 2016 Amy, herding cats at Oakland for Hillary, staring ruefully into the camera: “Trump advisory board member: Women should strive to be “handmaidens,” stay out of the workplace” THEY KEEP SAYING THE QUIET PART LOUD, ugh they’re the dumbest dystopic villains ever.
Ever since I read about that cannabis gravy in Sunset, Sunset is telling me what the best CBD sparkling waters are and you know what? This is creepy cookie-based display advertising at its very best.
Speaking of cannabis, wondering what the heck is happening with Canuck recording artist and Degrassi legend Drake attempting to copyright Canada’s weed warning? Don’t worry, Friend of the Missive Max has GOT YOU, FAM.
I don’t have a Turkey dinner to cook this year (thank you to the fabulous FotM who is taking me in this year, I love you tons and have purchased a box of holiday Kombucha because why the heck not) but if I did, I sure as heck would try out Helen Rosner’s slow-cooking from room temp method, because I listen to whatever Helen tells me to do when it comes to cooking. Since she is always right (no sarcasm, she’s a James Beard-recognized food writer and I respect those who know more than me about food.)
And finally, today in I FREAKING LOVE J STOR DAILY: How Linguists Are Using Urban Dictionary.
I missed you all. Be kind to each other.
