Only on the coldest days during tax season does the roof at the post office collapse, resulting in a temp outdoor mobile post office that is forced to close early because the generator might die soon. Valerie handled the situation with so much finesse; she’s my new mayor.
Gonna make more of these for those interested—details soon! @dtortorici and I are on it!
I Was a Tonya Harding Look-Alike by Lynn Harris
"So when reporters asked, “Do you mind looking like Tonya?” I would say something like: “Do I mind looking like a determined young woman who sewed her costumes, paid for her ice time with bottle caps and became a champion against all odds, and who — even if she is involved in this incident — is the victim of sexist and classist biases exploited by predatory media? No, I don’t mind.”"
some of SNP’s Lolita takeaway:
"I was Nabokov’s ideal recipient, in that I read for beauty and would have rather burned a book than deconstructed it, but if I’d had to say Lolita was about anything other than love destroyed, I would have said it was a biography of Britney Spears."
