Today has been a really depressing day, personally and professionally. Personally, it’s been depressing because my 17-year-old cat is having some issues with feline dementia and it’s just sad to watch. It also makes her vocalize a lot and we’re not getting much sleep at our house. Professionally, well, good god. Reading about all the shit Harvey Weinstein has done makes me absolutely nauseated. I’d go to bed early and pull the covers over my head, but my cat will just yell at me and keep me awake, so that won’t really help.
I’m struggling to find things that aren’t about Weinstein, so content may be lacking tonight. Sorry!
Let’s start with these wicked awesome young girls dancing to Beyoncé’s “Freedom” for #FreedomForGirls Campaign. They are fierce as hell. - (Glamour)

NeNe Leakes wished rape upon a heckler over the weekend while she was doing stand-up. I don’t know anything about NeNe Leakes, but I didn’t think she was a stand-up comedian? Anyway, she has apologized, which is apparently unusual for her. - (Dlisted)
Duchess Kate has made an appearance! I hope she’s feeling better during this pregnancy. She looks great. I mean, her face and hair look great. That dress looks doilyish. But she looks great! - (GFY)

Beth Ellen found herself in a bind. She was so wrapped up in listening to Robert Galbraith’s The Silkworm that she didn’t want to read anything else, but she couldn’t listen to it with her kid in the car or before bed. "It was gruesome and tricky, and like her first, you thought through the list of possible suspects again and again and again." Beth Ellen highly recommends the books and the narrator of the audio-books, Robert Glenister. Do you have a favorite audio book narrator? (Cannonball Read 9)
