I'm Gonna Need A Jensen Karp / MBMBAM Shrimp Heaven Crossover STAT, Thank You For Your Attention To This Matter.
Dearests! It’s been a week, and it’s only Wednesday. On Monday, I woke up at my regular 5 am time and just. could. not. write, instead spending the morning puttering about my kitchen, getting distracted by shiny objects and forgetting which task I was supposed to be completing. And yesterday I woke up to an internet outage, which I discovered when I asked my robot butler to turn off my alarm and they just yelled back that there was no connection to the internet, forcing me to get out of bed and physically turn off my alarm, which really is the best alarm, if you think about it, and might be indicative of the machines becoming sentient. But don’t cry for me, for instead of Missiving, I took a morning bath and read my the spooky murder mystery book I’ve been devouring The Sanatorium, which is oh so damned good and you should read it, and if it hasn’t been optioned for a movie yet, Hollywood is broken.
Prince Harry is so damned cool - not only is he going the start-up route by signing on as Chief Impact Officer at BetterUp, but also joining the Aspen Institute's new Commission on Information Disorder. Harry could have taken a huge check as a consultant for comic book evil villain multinational, but he’s instead focusing on advocating for better mental health and eliminating mis-and-disinformation. I reaffirm my Harry and Meghan standom.
I’ve spent far too much time reading about this this morning: TV producer (and Topanga’s husband) Jensen Karp found shrimp tails amongst the alleged fixings of a rat’s nest in a bag of breakfast cereal, and since he’s a comedy writer his battle for recognition with a company’s twitter account turned into a hilarious internet drama that goes all the way to the top but also OH GOD I don’t know what I would do if I found that in cereal, I feel ill… And if you clicked the link above, you realize that not only is he married to actress Danielle Fishel, he also had John Mayer as one of his groomsmen and this whole thing is just fascinating to me…
Toxic positivity is a real thing, and it is something I have to struggle to avoid in my work and personal lives, so this piece How to Stop Toxic Positivity From Eroding Your Firm's Culture by Angie Herbers speaks to me.
And finally, thanks to Friend of the Missive and fellow Canadian Max C. for sharing what I hope is the greatest PR troll of all time: “Oh Great, Pizza Hut Is Getting Into the NFT Racket.” And BTW, John Cleese has the best NFT take, in my humble opinion: John Cleese has an NFT bridge to sell you for $69.3 million.
That’s it, that’s all! Be kind to each other, and wear your masks, please!
