Thank you all for the nice comments and good wishes for Stone Phillips (my kidney stone). He’s still hanging around. I think maybe he likes me!
I had no idea that there was a queer dating show and that it was on MTV! - (Lainey)
Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have split after six years together. Actually, they broke up months ago, but like the beginning of their relationship, no one knew about it. (E!)
I ganked this from commenter Pamazon’s Facebook post.
Representation matters! Nice job, Ulta! - (Scary Mommy)
Look: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle go on vacation, OK? And they’re Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, so obviously, they’re going to take private jets, and like, is this what Brits complain about instead of Boris Johnson? (Celebitchy)
I grew up in Denver, and we had family and friends from Ohio and Florida come to visit. Some of them got severe altitude sickness while they were there. It can mess you up! Poor Chrissy Teigen getting it in her own home state, though. BETRAYAL! - (Dlisted)
It took five years and it was the least they could do, but the NYPD finally fired the officer responsible for the death of Eric Garner. - (The Root)
NO IDEA how I missed this yesterday, but OMG, this is something my best friend’s mom would totally do because she can’t tell her kids’ baby/toddler pictures apart. On the other hand, my friend’s mom isn’t Caitlyn Jenner and doesn’t have famous kids. - (Buzzfeed)
Have you been following the chicken fracas on Twitter?
“Hey, I’m not gonna be able to make it tonight.. Yea, Popeyes and Chick Fil A are fighting on the Internet and I think Boston Market just got involved”— JoJo (@jtodaojo25) August 19, 2019
If only it were late October and I knew where to buy a knock-off of this coat Jada is wearing. LOVE it! - (GFY)
For readers of Toni Morrison, her August 5th passing was a personal blow, and Cannonballers have been reading and reviewing Morrison’s work since at least CBR3 (2011). Vel Veeter in his review of her collected essays observed, "[t]here were a few times where I would read an article of hers and see the world that we inhabit so clearly presented to me that I had to look to see when it was written and it’s more than 20 years old." Most recently, Classic reviewed Beloved, saying, "In the end, we have a beloved forgotten. Still wanting to be named. Still wanting to be loved." Do you have a favorite Toni Morrison work? (Cannonball Read 11)
