Happy Wednesday, guys! I hope you’re all having an awesome week. I’ve been eating pizza and reading a lot. Which reminds me…are we friends on Goodreads? We should be! You can see how weird my taste in books is. Enjoy the Michelle-less Full House intro above, and let’s get on with the links!
I made this lemon chicken for dinner earlier this week and it was so good!
An interview with Maria Bamford, who is perfect in every way.
A great profile of Lorrie Moore on The Millions.
I really loved this super honest post about changing dreams on A Beautiful Mess.
Emma Straub wrote about the power of saying yes on Rookie and I love, love, loved it. And I very much identified with this part: “You know how marathon runners eat a huge plate of pasta the night before a race? That was me, for my whole life. I was storing things up—unrequited love, ambition, drive, all of it.”
Did you know that The A.V. Club reviewed/recapped every episode of The X-Files? Well, they did, and it’s pretty perfect. I love reading these after we watch an episode. This is definitely one of the nerdier things I do, but I don’t care!
I’ve written before about how much I admire Emily Gould, and this piece about her writing career is just so wonderful. I will happily read about Emily Gould’s life for as long as she wants to write about it, and I can’t WAIT for her novel to come out.
Erin has another awesome interview in her Cool People series!
A FANTASTIC interview with Miranda July: “Sometimes I think about what it would take to actually write something mean about some woman’s work on Twitter or in a comment. It’s so inconceivable to me that I realise, oh, these people are really, really different from me or anyone I know.”
And finally, what it’s like to try the Pippa Middleton diet: “Haggis happens to be illegal in New York City. Apparently, you can’t eat lung here. This is not the land of the free.”
