May All Our Rivers Be Otter-Friendly Playgrounds, And Other Thursday Morning Personal Prayers
Good morning, sweeties! I made it back to the Bay Area, jumping on an earlier flight out of Chicago when every flight afterwards was cancelled due to snow, narrowly missing a blackout in San Francisco and only staying up for an hour or so stressing about the current state of the world (anxiety is like SO fun! Weee!) But I’m back, and I’m excited to be here, and I can’t wait to get to the internet!
This is the internet hero we deserve: This App Automatically Cancels and Sues Robocallers.
Nothing to see here, just the President intervening with Justice Department investigations and his appointed AG happily obliging. Oh, and then the President bragging about it on the internet service we used ten years ago to share our morning coffee. But please, tell me again how you won’t show up for the general election if your chosen Democratic primary candidate isn’t on the ballot?
Don’t freak out too hard, but the South Saskatchewan River in Medicine Hat, Alberta (stay with me, people) is now healthy enough to support A FAMILY OF RIVER OTTERS AHHHHHHHHH!
Favorite lotion and potion store of my youth The Body Shop is adopting a new hiring method wherein they do not ask inane questions about drugs or run background checks that prevent the formerly incarcerated from gaining employment, but instead when there’s an opening, “nearly anyone who applies and meets the most basic requirements will be able to get a job, on a first-come, first-served basis.” These staffers start as an apprentice in a trial period, and if they make it through, are offered “an entry-level job and the opportunity to advance”.
And finally, glamour shots of dogs at dog shows is what we all need right now (looking at you, friend of the Missive David!)
Be kind to each other, and have a fantastic day.
