    There’s something that I find very comforting about the aerial photos of farmland. Maybe it’s the knowledge that the big ol’ world is still out there, in spite of how small my own world has become. So glad you’ll be back, CW!

          His wife is Emily Blunt’s sister. Not too shabby.

    It is a little strange to wish someone a Happy Memorial Day, being as it’s a day of rememberance for all of those who have given their lives in active service. Many have lost a loved one who served. I do hope that people enjoy their long weekend and the many liberties those ultimate sacrifices earned us, and I hope that someday it’s more common to express thanks for that rather than, you know, gripe about how bad the traffic down the shore was over their federal holiday. (Not that anyone here has done that.) It’s just something to be aware of.

      You’re absolutely right. My mistake.

      Wow. It is also a little strange to publically shame someone whose blog brings much-needed levity into our lives. Perhaps you should read and lecture elsewhere?

    Canadian GOACA, I’ve been reading with sympathy your descriptions of online shopping difficulties. As a gesture of goodwill, I have created four examples of Canadian Trash Talking that perhaps you could use when you need to vent frustration or boost morale. 1. “Ryan Gosling? We MADE him.” 2. “Kiss my Kraft Dinner!” 3. “Corner Gas had more and better female characterization in the main cast than Seinfeld did.” (I know that does not roll off the tongue, but it’s still true. Compare Lacey, Emma, Karen, and my beloved, Wanda to Elaine all by herself. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is wonderful, but she shouldn’t be expected to carry the weight of representing all of American womankind.) 4. “Respect us or we’ll put the sore in sorry!”

    In addition to the New Yorker piece about the writer working at her father’s grocery store, read this incredibly moving and also frustrating piece in the WaPo from the perspective of a store owner in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. Was thinking about this for a long time after: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/04/11/grocery-store-owner-new-orleans-coronavirus

    Two bits of good news. 1) my good friend cut my hair and I feel soooo much better. I think it looks okay, not that that matters. and 2) our tv friend Bill has used this time to begin educating himself on insulin resistance and the microbiome inside us, so I am not as mad anymore, although I would still like an apology even if it is a “man-pology.” This saves me a lot of time bc I was only in my notes-gathering phase, and as he is self-correcting, I no longer have to bother so, yay.

      Right before I saw your comment, I had been eyeing a large jar of ghee on Costco and wondering if she who waits loses her ghee. Anyway, I know what you mean about your good news (and love that you were still at the notes-gathering stage. I totally would have been your hypewoman, “Listen to this woman speak the truth and be one less man that Mr. T has to pity!” if you had given him a lecture.). On your first piece of good news, congratulations!

        You’re very kind … I may have to chop off even more!!!! And as for Maher, it is good to see someone who takes his job so seriously. I kinda thought he did but it was a pleasant surprise.

    The Stanley Tucci essay = my life and current situation. Dying laughing out loud And not sure whether to laugh or cry until coffee snorts out of my nose.

    Looking forward to all these links and I saved your newest podcast for the weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend! This is my first Memorial Day weekend in Texas in years, but I did find out this week I’ll be able to go to the East Coast for the summer so I’m ending May on a very positive note!!!! (and, weirdly, where I hope to be safer because social distancing is still in place as opposed to Texas where they are opening bars tonight––Oy and Egad)
