You know what’s a first world problem? Your internet and broadband dying the Friday morning of a Bank Holiday weekend when you’re not supposed to go outside. It was fun. Not stressful in the slightest.

Interesting read on the idea and power of “home.”
Oh J. Crew…I’m heartbroken for all my past love, but not surprised.
Will llamas save us all?
A bit of science reporting to help explain the genetics of COVID-19 and how it can be traced. (I also recommend an old episode of Radio Lab about the evolution of HIV, but which explains how viruses make the jump from animals to humans in high detail but accessible narrative).

Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to read this Guardian article about lockdown dental care!).
I know it’s the epitome of insufferable privilege, but it sucked. Very grateful to have it back, for both work and comfort.

LOVE that video! Thank you.
