Once again, I am writing a blog post while battling a massive cold. Columbia, Missouri is also facing a Winter Storm Warning today and tomorrow for a whopping 6-10 inches of snow, which, to me, seems trivial, but I guess it’s almost a foot in a place that desperately lacks the infrastructure to deal with two inches, let alone ten.
So I’ll just be here, sipping my tea + honey, trying to accomplish my to-do list, and wondering why this blasted cold won’t go away.
Tomorrow is President’s Day, so here’s a list of females who ran for president throughout history!
Classic flats every woman should own.
I love Joni Mitchell, and I love her in this New York Magazine spread.
“The Quiet German” by George Packer of the New Yorker is so phenomenally well-written and researched that it had me hooked from beginning to end. It’s also about German Chancellor Angela Merkel though, so it helps to be interested in her, too!
In tribute to the great David Carr, who rose from junkie to NYT columnist and inspired so many journalism students, here’s his now often-linked “Me and My Girls” piece.
I’d like to end with a quote from him, too, because it make me feel warm and fuzzy on a day when I would really like to just be staying in bed:
“I now inhabit a life I don’t deserve, but we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn’t end soon.” (David Carr, The Night of the Gun)
Have a great week everyone!
