Yea, Feels Like Today Totally Needs To Be A Half-Caf One.
Folks! Between Odd Salon and an insaaaaane week at work, I have been derelict in going to yoga AND in sharing the random stuff I’m reading on the internet. Which is sort of for the best, I guess, because I’ve hardly had time to catch up on the hot impeachment gossip, or gnaw on my gnails with anxiety over our current existential quandary, though it does mean I am stiff and not taking full breaths. I’m sorry, what were we talking about again?
BTW, friend of the Missive Greg K. has some VERY important news about the Bay Area’s newest animal hero, a therapy horse names Sweets who rides BART. Friends, sometimes I worry I share too much in this Missive. But then you send me stuff like this and I know I'm sharing just the right amount.
Yes Greg, I sure as heck appreciate that.
So the Good News for all of us is that THE INTERNET NEVER SLEEPS and I found some content! For you, dear reader! And me!
Friend of the Missive Max wrote quite possible the most 2019 story on Marketwatch and I am in love with it: Aurora Cannabis covets California’s weed culture, but can’t pronounce one word correctly. Knowing that Canadians are appropriating Californian stoner culture but can’t pronounce San Rafael properly is *chef’s kiss.* Also, how would you like to be the guy in the hed photo that popped up in Getty images when I imagine a photo editor searched for “man with joint” or "san francisco weed" or some sh*t like that. Max, you may confirm or deny that allegation at your leisure.
If you are like me, and watch how PR pros at big corporations handle massive executive shake-ups with a close eye, then you’ll love this article: McDonald’s Shows How to Manage a CEO Crisis. (Subhead: America's biggest burger chain fired one and hired another within 48 hours.)
Best headline in the history of all of the internet, hands down, all other headlines can pack up their crap and go home: Looks Like Seb Gorka’s Unrepentant Love of Imagine Dragons Got Him Banned from YouTube.
And most un-surprising headline in history that is so painfully true it hurts: Women still own way less startup equity than men. Awww internet, you never let us down when it comes to soul-sapping news with snappy headlines #blessed
Be kind to yourselves, y’all! And please send deep breaths and words of affirmation please.
