BUT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY SO IT REALLY DOESN’T MATTER. I am 21 and plan on doing some U.S.-style legal drinking and a candlemaking class. Feel free to send me free gifts and/or cash. I need drink money.
The funniest thing that happened this week was at work on Friday when for some reason listening to “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus prompted us to make a playlist called “Crying in the Bath (But In a Funny Way).” I have replicated much of it on my Spotify so if you want it just ask. My picks were “Against All Odds” by Phil Collins and “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” by Bryan Adams.
The New Yorker’s “O Adjunct! My Adjunct!” (Denise Davis, if you’re reading this, thank you for everything.)
Autostraddle’s “15 of Those Actresses Who Were in That Show”
The Awl’s “I Just Ate Fruit for the First Time and It Kind of Sucked”
New York Magazine’s “Why I Live in an All Women Boardinghouse in New York City”
And that’s the week that was!
Emily (another year older and another year wiser)
P.S. word of the week: invigilator. LOOK IT UP
