THE LAST DAY OF CHANUKA IS UPON US! How I wish it weren’t so …. Up ahead, the book I’m planning to read this Shabbos and the articles I enjoyed this week.
Solutions and Other Problems, by Allie Brosh
I am finally FINALLY FINALLY gonna get to read Allie Brosh’s long-awaited followup book!! Allie Brosh is one of those unproblematic Internet (capital I till the end!!) legends, whose blog Hyperbole and a Half defined a lot of what Internet humor has become today. A few years back, she published a post about depression and I think all of us readers heaved a sigh of relief when this book finally made it out into the world. Continuously rooting for you, Ms. Brosh!
Why We Think Cats Are Psychopaths, by Sarah Zhang in The Atlantic, Feburary 2019
Great headline for what turns out to be a pretty academic article! Cats aren’t as domesticated as dogs! They don’t need to please us! I admire cats for this. I need to be reading such articles in the event that I lose the Great GUS Debate of Which Pet is Better.
Ah, the end of year lists are coming! Some of my favorite compilations are the fashion-in-film moments, a crossover of passions that require more consideration than a red carpet decision. Obviously I was as taken with The Queen’s Gambit, Moira Rose and The Great as the next person, but I’m not convinced that they beat out last year’s film offerings. I want a Devil Wears Prada every year! Give it to me!!!
