A first look at Greta Gerwig’s Little Women looks so lovely. Can she do Anne of Green Gables next? (Celebitchy)

A romance author has accused her husband of trying to poison her. (Vulture)

A fascinating, heartbreaking, comprehensive read about the Malaysia Airlines flight 370. (This is really, really worth your time. Promise.) (Atlantic)

NoHo Hank is my favorite part of any Barry episode. He’s just so delightful. This profile of Anthony Carrigan is also delightful. (The Wrap)

I never knew how much I needed to see Seth Meyers getting drunk with Rihanna, but now that I know it’s coming, it’s all I can think of. (Lainey Gossip)

Did you hear the one about smartphones causing teens to grow horns? I mean, I’d believe it if I ever saw teens using smartphones as a phone. I can’t even remember the last time I actually answered a phone call. (Motherboard)

Ok, so now Justin Bieber does want to fight Tom Cruise. - (Dlisted)

It’s day three of the Royal Ascot and Queen Margaery showed up! (GFY)

It’s kind of amazing, actually, reading about Trump’s depravities. They just never end, do they? For example, I never even heard of this story about him stopping “a big man with a big bat” from committing a mugging. I mean, how do you even sit there and listen to him tell this story and not laugh in his face? (The New Republic)

Fuck all these companies that use the rainbow flag during Pride month whilst donating to anti-LGBTQ members of Congress. (PI)

Reminder: Judge Judy is seen by 10 million people A DAY and earns $50 million a year; it’s her world, and she’s just letting us live in it. (NYT)

Here is where the US legal system shows its ugly head: in Robert Kraft’s case it’s not about if he’s innocent or guilty. It’s about how well his expensive lawyers can argue. (Deadspin)

Oh! Look! I know how to solve the millennials-can’t afford-real-estate crisis: Jeff Bezos can afford to pay a 10% down payment on a home for every family. (Current Affairs)

Speaking of, I once housesat my friend’s 4,000sqft home for 3 weeks and that experience made me realize that I a) never want to buy a house and b) never want to live in anything larger than 1000sqft. This person had a similar experience (but in the opposite direction). (Curbed)

I’m so glad to have come across this article about personality tests, because for a long time now I’ve thought that the Myers-Briggs is total bullshit, and I’ll read anything about disproving this topic. (MEL Magazine)

Do you have trouble sleeping? Have you tried using CBD oil? I have, and it only made my anxiety worse. Maybe I need to try a different brand? (The Outline)

Have you heard of the Condorcet’s paradox? It might explain why the Democratic establishment is having difficulty narrowing down the choice to a single candidate. Or maybe it’s still too early? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (The Conversation)

I tried Duck Duck Go years ago and wasn’t thrilled with the experience, but it seems like privacy browsers are really picking up steam. Might be time to revisit some of these. (Wired)

OK, so maybe, like, one person will be interested in this, but I HAVE to talk about it. The brand director for Goop, a woman named Marissa Fuchs, is currently on a 3 day? 5 day?, I don’t even know by now, “scavenger hunt” proposal “adventure”. It started off in NYC, then she went to the Hamptons, now she’s in Miami, and it will end in Paris. She was supposed to find “jewels” with clues, but these ended up being boxes of jewelry just handed to her by her friends. Then she complained that she didn’t have her Bose headphones, neck pillow, and special blanket for her flight. And then she realized she didn’t have any clothes left, and ran around various department stores, looking for designer dresses. If that sounds tacky and gross and over the top, let me also tell you that this entire thing has been apparently pre-arranged and hashtag sponsored. This is so gross to me, and completely disingenuous, but I cannot look away. Is anyone else watching? (The Atlantic)

Happy Pride Month! Jen K enjoyed "tried and true favorite" Seanan McGuire’s exploration of what happens after a child comes back from adventures in fairyland. Every Heart a Doorway has misfit children who no longer fit their old lives, genders or expectations. "Is it really reasonable to believe that after ruling as kings and queens for years, the children of Narnia would be able to return to their normal life?" (Cannonball Read 11)
