SL 754

I’ve been using this blog as a brain dump for the past two weeks. I wanted to keep going, but I lost three hours to getting some evil malware off my computer today. I’ll pick it up tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some links:

I read Educated this weekend and absolutely LOVED it. I’ll do a post on it soon.

One of the kids caught up in the admissions scandal is suing Georgetown to bar expulsion. Of course, Georgetown knew, but it’s still pretty ballsy to complain.

In response to student protests, Harvard removes a law school dean for representing Harvey Weinstein.

I don’t talk about abortion on this blog, because so many people do a better job of it than I do. But wow. Alabama.

Fun Get X nostalgia.

I was trying to convince my smart, fashionable niece to become an influencer this weekend. She laughed and eye rolled delightfully. And she gave me some links to jewelry that she found for cheap on Amazon (links on the sidebar).

Wine tasting in the Botanical Gardens sounds like a plan for the weekend.

  1. Re the Harvard dean who was representing Weinstein: apparently he was removed from being a ” house faculty dean.” He didn’t lose his job as a faculty member or as an academic dean. More on the story as reported by the Crimson: https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2019/5/10/winthrop-climate/

    I loved Educated, too. I started reading it during an off week for new romances, and I couldn’t put it down. (Just read Christina Lauren’s new one, The Unhoneymooners, and … meh. Don’t forget to read The Bride Test, by Helen Hoang, which just came out. Still not sure how I ended up with an ARC a few months ago.)

  3. Writing book reviews for Budapest Week and seeing Indigo Girls at the Little Five Points Pub are two of the most Gen X things I have done, though, true to form, I cannot commit to their being the most Gen X things I have done.

  4. I am technically GenX, but I am so *not* gen x in terms of any gen x thing I’ve done, ’cause I haven’t done any of them.
