God Grant Me The Productivity Of Taylor Swift Dropping A Second Quarantine Album (SWOON)
Sweeties! Quick one today, as I hit snooze three times and am seriously debating rolling myself up in a fleece blanket like a cozy burrito and taking a rain check on adulting. Which I won’t, of course, because of anxiety, but please send all of the awake and creative thoughts my way as I embark on a day of meetings.
But first, OMG, TAYLOR SWIFT IS DROPPING ANOTHER ALBUM AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT AND I AM SO DARNED EXCITED. Folklore was FABULOUS and one of the redeeming cultural moments of 2020 and I am not emotionally prepared in any way for this sister album. And just yesterday I was reading her features in EW’s Entertainers of the Year issue.
You must read this excellent piece by Christopher Mims on How Some Black Startup Founders Are Thriving in a Pandemic Year.

Nice to have some positive news in this economic garbage fire.
Never thought I’d read about one administration’s plan to fully disinfect the West Wing after the departure of their predecessor, but there you have it: How Biden aims to Covid-proof his administration.
According to CNN, Melania Trump 'just wants to go home’. Ok.
And finally, love this tweet thread on “The holy trinity of getting chores done when you have ADHD.”
You’re great. Be kind to each other, and please wear those masks.
