It’s a cold Sunday night, but it feels like there’s so much going on. California is on fire. Our idiot president couldn’t be arsed to leave his hotel to attend the 100th anniversary memorial for veterans of WWI on Veterans Day because it was raining. And Andrew Gillum has withdrawn his concession in the Florida Governor’s race after a recount was triggered.
Oh, but guess who CNN sent to cover Trump’s trip to Paris? Hahahahahahaha!
The cover of the November 9th The New Yorker is delightful and perfect. Welcome to Congress, indeed. - (New Yorker)
The British Royal family attended the Festival of Remembrance. I really love this ensemble on the queen. She looks fantastic. Also, I hate the shit out of it when people say this, but in these pictures at least, Meghan really IS glowing! - (GFY)
Other than those of you from Emporia, Kansas, who knew a shoe salesman from Kansas created Veterans Day? - (Mental Floss)
Back when I was in Human Resources and interviewing EMTs and Paramedics, I once asked an applicant, “What was the most difficult situation you dealt with at your last job?” and she responded (before I even finished asking the question) “SOMEONE THREW UP IN MY MOUTH.” Mel B. has been there. - (Celebitchy)
As if Australia didn’t have enough things in nature to be terrified of, there was someone going around sticking needles in grocery store strawberries! - (Jezebel)
Ice-T said he’s never had a bagel, which is weird. But he also said he’s never had a cup of coffee, which maybe it’s just in the wording - maybe he’s never had a cup of coffee. Maybe he only drinks liters of coffee. *shrug* I don’t know. I just can’t imagine life without coffee. And I WON’T, dammit. - (Dlisted)

Happy birthday to great American author Kurt Vonnegut. In God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, Kurt Vonnegut hires Dr. Kevorkian to put him into near-death states so that he can interview people in the afterlife. In her review, KimMiE" puts herself in a near-death state to ask Kurt Vonnegut if the collection was anything more than a cash grab. "I’m not going to be bullied into liking something just because Kurt Vonnegut wrote it." If you could interview a dead person, who would it be and what would you ask? (Cannonball Read 10)
