three favorites thursday – phoning it in on friday edition

I just signed in to write this post and it offered me the option to post on any of my 3 blogs that I have through wordpress. I didn’t remember that I had 3. one of them is called ‘365 days to disney’ which is adorable. and also- how did I not keep up with a full on disneycentric blog?! I’ve got problems.

for anyone keeping track at home we got home from Disney on Monday and my next trip is in… 49 days. So maybe I should change the name of that blog to ‘spoiledass disney princess goes to disney too much’ – though I could change the name of THIS blog to that as well.

bless me father for I have sinned, it has been 15 days since my last blog post, and these are my badly thought out favorites.

 

 

numberone

Recreational marijuana is about to be legal in Massachusetts. But that’s not my favorite part. THIS article from the Boston Globe  is my favorite part.

Screen Shot 2018-11-15 at 9.05.34 AMonly in Massachusetts do we need a newspaper article to help us get over our puritan anxiety about not looking like a moron when we go to buy legal weed for the first time. And I for one say – thank you Boston Globe! because it just means that I’m not the only person who wouldn’t try it because I don’t know what the heck I’m doing.

also covered in that piece : what it will cost, how to order, how to pay, where to store it, what to do if you have a bad high. not mentioned: hot chocolate or something sweet.

 

 

number2

reading.

I’ve written about specific books once or twice I think – currently I’m reading The Party by Lisa Hall – I go through phases, and right now I’m in a Domestic Noir phase-

Oprah’s book club put me off celebrity book clubs – but then Felicia Day’s Vaginal Fantasy book club happened and restored my faith in them. So when I saw that Reece Witherspoon’s book club had recommended a book that I LOVED (The Lying Game by Ruth Ware) I thought she might have some good stuff to suggest.

 

And she does! Thanks to her book club I just finished The Other Woman by Sandie Jones. It was ridiculous, a good, fast read. I have hated going to work this week because I JUST WANT TO BE HOME READING.  Maybe wearing a toasty pair of footie sweat-pants.

But not only has reading been my favorite but the recent freedom experienced by putting down a book that was DRAGGING MY ASS DOWN has been my favorite. I read an article in the Harvard Business Review about how to read more books – and one of the suggestions was to drop a book when it starts being a chore. Obviously that doesn’t apply if you’re reading for work, or school, but if you’re reading for fun? Put that bench down and find another!

are you on goodreads? I am. you should friend me so I can stalk your reading list. I’m always on the lookout for my next favorite book.

 

 

number3

I can’t think of anything to make #3. which is funny because like I said in my first ever post: everything is my favorite.

so while we’re talking about reading I’ll list a couple of my favorite mental health and feminist influencers.

Like Cranky Fat Feminist.

and Jes Baker (The Militant Baker.)

oooh or Virgie Tovar. Maybe especially Virgie Tovar. She’s incredible. and she’s everywhere, like contributing to Forbes, like a boss.

or The Bloggess.  especially especially her most recent blog post about Asha Dornfest’s blog post about dusting off our blogs and writing the things, uniting people over ideas and generally screaming together into the Aether while we save America and one another.  AND and and. the comments on the Bloggess’ post are LOADED with links to other blogs. so go read, and follow, and let’s save America by rebuilding communities of ideas.

 


so- that’s what I’ve got. I’m especially enjoying the very Friday nature of this three favorites for Thursday. have a great weekend. read all the things.

xoxo
