Suit Up --> Fight Creeps, And Other Excellently Tattooable Mantras
|Amy Widdowson||Jun 13, 2019|
Lovelies! Happy to report that the temperature in our fair city by the Bay has dropped, and I am no longer at risk of melting into the sea. Now I get to turn my frustration to the fact that while the city is back to a normal temperature outside, my top-floor unit is still a sold twenty degrees warmer, despite every window being open, as well as to wondering which fan app on my phone is listening to me yell at my weather app in the name of “preventing” “piracy” (yes, this is a real thing, a sportsball team is facing fines for SPYING ON THEIR FANS BY RECORDING THEM VIA THEIR APP oh my god, this dystopic timeline is le worst.)
Speaking of the world wide web (now THAT’s a segue…) It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiiiime of the year: Mary Meeker’s Internet Report is out! Go get yer data nerdery on, people!
I’m going to put this devastating headline here: Trump Administration to Hold Migrant Children at Base That Served as WWII Japanese Internment Camp. What’s the old saying? Those who never learned history are doomed to attempt to one-up it in the most terrible of ways?
Some days, you feel like you’re getting dragged by Ask a Manager: my coworkers love talking about murder (I include this because just yesterday I found out that three of my colleagues in our Silicon Valley office are fellow Murderinos, and upon discovering this, we exchanged true crime podcast recommendations.)
So I guess Jessica Biel is an anti-vax activist now? Sigh. Ugh. Sigh some more. Ugh some more.
And finally, here’s to well-dressed lady lawyers who fight “Pervs, Psychos, and Trolls” in sartorial “armor” after experiencing her own trauma. I am especially interested in what lawyer Carrie Goldberg says about our legal system’s unwritten requirement that one “dress like a victim” in order to seek justice, and how she’s interested in getting all that BS tossed like it should be. Heck yea, Ms. Goldberg!
You’re all great. Be kind to each other.
