Let’s Get Our Ducks In A Row And Circle Back On The Optics Of Why Being An Adult = Cosplaying Yourself Every Morning 🧐

Poppets! It’s Thursday! You’re lovely! I hope you already knew that, but I just sensed you needed some extra pep this morning, so I am more than happy to share some of my annoying morning person-ness with you. You’ve got this! And I’ve only had one cup of coffee, why do you ask with your head tilted in concern?
So what’s up on the internet?
I’m sure you’re not surprised, but after that debate last night, I remain an absolute Elizabeth Warren stan. I mean COME ON, I would give a kidney to see Sen. Warren stand next to Trump and dress him down. But instead of a kidney, I donated $100 and so should you.
I agree with Charlie Warzel; for better or for worse, Twitter Is Real Life.
Speaking of Twitter, friends of the Missive Sarah and Jane, this one’s for you: I am absolutely in love with the ladies who run the NJGov twitter account, and so’s the NYT ‘Hi Haters’: Why New Jersey’s Twitter Account Is Like No Other. The kicker quote from one of the staffers is DELIGHTFUL: “We’re a little state with big state energy”.
Let’s put a pin in this, cuz I feel attacked: Corporate Buzzwords Are How Workers Pretend to Be Adults. And yes “speaking the language of work reminds people that they’re pretending,” and by people, I mean me. Though, in my defense, I am the one leaving “WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?!” over buzzwords in draft comments while my colleagues blink in horror.
And finally, a year ago McSweeney’s was On. It. I Don’t Hate Women Candidates — I Just Hated Hillary And Coincidentally I’m Starting To Hate Elizabeth Warren. The best line = “I always tell my daughters they can be anything they want, so long as they don’t make other people feel uncomfortable.” Yea, I’M STILL RIDING THIS WARREN ENERGY Y’ALL AND JUST BOUGHT THE TANK TOP.
That’s it for today! You’re all delightful, and I hope you’ll be kind to each other — and to yourself.
