Darlings! It’s Monday, it’s still May, it’s still shelter-in-place (in San Francisco at least) and I’m still battling with how many damned water glasses one woman can use and leave around her small apartment in a single day. The struggle is real.

I just love this headline from Erin Griffith: Zoom, Xoom, Zum: Why Does Every Start-Up Sound Fast Now?
Binge-listened to the Root of Evil podcast this weekend (content warning: lots of really, really, really, really, REALLY disturbing stuff) on the alleged Black Dahlia murderer and hooooo boy, am I grateful I was born into the family I was born into.

There’s an anti-vax-funded trailer for a movie that “makes the false claim that billionaires aided in the spread of the coronavirus to further the spread of vaccines.” Luckily, the platforms are removing it, especially since it tries to convince its audience of BS like wearing a mask will make you sick (I’m sorry, what?) and we are truly living in the absolute worst timeline. Also, I am glad the platforms are making the responsible choice, but I sure hope this dedication to the truth lasts through the 2020 election, which is SIX MONTHS AWAY. Ha, of course they won’t. Sigh.
So we may no longer be able to rejoice in the epic office-dweller schadenfreude of watching a large company brought to its knees by awkward “forgot to bcc the entire company in that one note about whoever microwaved fish at lunch” insanity, because “Microsoft adds protection against Reply-All email storms in Office 365.”
And finally, this is still the best twitter account in the whole darned world: Wiki Titles Singable to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Theme Song.
You’re great. Be kind to yourself.
