Hello! Here’s what I was up to this week…
On the blog
The Invisible Victims, Marie Claire.
You saw me covered in blood on a bus. But do you get outraged about all homophobia?, The Guardian.
The Pink, n+1.
“The situation of the vagina in feminist politics today is, even by optimistic standards, hairy.”
Dear Therapist: It’s Hard to Accept Being Single, The Atlantic.
They Gave America 13 Goals—And Got a Lecture in Return, The Atlantic.
Track Star Gabriele Grunewald Couldn’t Win This Race, The New York Times.
“She died on Tuesday at 32 and left a husband, Justin Grunewald, for whom she was everything.”
This Book About Apologies Changed My Life, The Cut.
I bought/read the book after reading this post, and I thought it was great.
The $500m smiley face business, The Hustle.
The Real Dog Moms of New York City, The New York Times.
I want a movie inspired by this immediately.
Keanu Reeves Keeps His Hands to Himself, Kottke.
“My dad died. Classic start to a funny story. He was buried in a small village in Sussex. I was really close to my dad so I visited his grave a lot. I still do. [DON’T WORRY, IT GETS FUNNIER.]”
I gasped at the end of this!
The Times has a new puzzle game: Tiles. It took me a little while to understand how to clear the board/actually complete a game, but now that I’ve figured it out, I’m hooked!
I am currently obsessed with Freedom Moses knockoff Birks ($45), which come in basically every color, and every color is made in men, women, and children’s sizes. I bought the Lagoon because the Tropicool was/is sold out, but I love the Capri and Baby options, and the Fuji and Parma are very pretty IRL. (Also, they were three pairs for $99 when I bought mine and it looks like that is still the case.)
If you enjoyed the recent “nuns and nones” NYT article, you might be interested in the fact that Mariandale in Ossining is hosting a daylong version, which sounds lovely. I won’t be able to make it, but I’ve had nothing but great experiences at Mariandale.
In other news, I took the Rockaway Ferry line from Wall Street to the beach this weekend and it was great — highly recommend it as a way of traveling to Rockaway Beach/Ft. Tilden/Jacob Riis.
Have a great Sunday! 🌊
