Today, I Am Grateful That Karl The Fog Is Sheltering SF From This Insane Heatwave. Thank You, Anthropomorphized Weather Pattern.
Darlings! It’s nearly July, which is insane to me, and I can’t get over the fact that I’ve worn real, actual pants every day for the past week. If there’s a cookie available for “best attempt at post-quarantine adulting”, I would like to have it, please. But also: we’re still aligned that clothes without stretchy waistbands are dumb, right?

INTERWEBS, HERE WE GO!
I know I am a Dr. Jill Biden fan girl, but COME ON, SHE’S THE COOLEST ‘A First Lady for All of Us: On the Road with Dr. Jill Biden’ (Vogue) I haven’t read the piece yet but the photos by Annie Leibowitz alone have me swooning - the shots of Dr. Biden and her husband on the Oval Office patio should be required sorting material for people on dating apps (“do you want Bidens on the patio, or something casual?”).
And speaking of that husband, he wrote an op-ed for Yahoo!

Meanwhile, in the land of the Former First Family, lies, lies everywhere, and not a one to believe: “Documents Show Ivanka Trump Didn’t Testify Accurately in Inauguration Scandal Case” (Mother Jones)
This is fine (yikes): “Arizona’s Maricopa County announced Monday that it will replace voting equipment that was turned over to a private contractor for a Republican-commissioned review of the 2020 presidential election, concerned that the process compromised the security of the machines.” (The Washington Post)
And finally, caviar chaos in California! Michelin-starred restaurants touted this caviar as the best in local, sustainable products. But it wasn't what it seemed (San Francisco Chronicle)
You’re lovely. Drink some water, stay safe, stay healthy, take a deep breath. You’ve got this.
