The Friday Five: March 16, 2018

Hey cool mom!   TGIF!  

We got some sickos around my place, but what’s new?!  I hoping we can get outside to escape the Boss Baby loop that seems to have a positive correlation with lower temps and gray skies... cause, Alec Baldwin narrated my nightmare last night!  

Here’s some good stuff that doesn’t directly relate to babies running my life...

1.  Roxane Gay’s 10 Favorite Books, which include a collection of poetry by Danez Smith and, my current fave-pee-your-pants-funny essay collection, We Are Never Meeting in Real Life, by Samantha Irby.

2.   For the 20th (gasp!) anniversary of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the elusive Lauryn Hill will perform her first and only solo album in its entirety at this summer’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.  Whoa.  This is big.

3.  Yesterday was SC Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s bday.  Her quotes are unbeatable.

4.  “Obituaries in the Times have long been dominated by white men.  Now, the paper of record is trying to fix the record.”  “The Daily” podcast profiles Ida B. Wells and interviews Alisha Padnani, leader of the Overlooked Project (fascinating!!  Read more about it here).

Talk about overlooked!  Watch how art saved Rosa Parks’ home.  It’s now in Berlin!

5.  “I’m dressing for spring in just 6 pieces.”  (Printed wrap dress, patent-leather jacket, breezy top, gathered midi skirt, utility jumpsuit, white jeans).

Me too!!  (Ok, just for work).

You gotta jazz it up on the weekends sometimes, mom.  

Have a great one!
