The WGA and the AMPTP met yesterday for the first time since the strike began to see if they could agree to continue talking. There has been no such agreement made yet, although all the reporting suggests that the AMPTP has to discuss the issue with their people (the CEOs) before they can agree to continue talking. One interesting sticking point is that the WGA says they won’t cross picket lines, so even if they iron out an agreement, they won’t go back to work until the AMPTP has also agreed with SAG. That’s solidarity! (Deadline)

If you haven’t watched Jury Duty on FreeVee yet, stop reading this and go watch it. Seriously, you won’t regret it - it’s hilarious (and kinda’ sweet)!

Never seen an episode of the reality series Selling Sunset or The Flipping El Moussas, but I get the feeling that Tarek El Moussa isn’t here to make friends. h/t Roxana - (LAT)

Remember the Boston cop who ate it on the slide? Grown-ass adult businesspeople are now lining up, sometimes for as long as FORTY-FIVE MINUTES, in the middle of the day to ride on THE DEATH SLIDE the children’s slide at the playground. - (Jezebel)

I don’t understand a few of the words in this headline, but I figure most people who are younger than I am will. “Twitch streamer facing charges of inciting a riot after threatening to give away PS5s.” It’s about video games or something, I think. Probably. Don’t try to explain it to me. I don’t care. The last video game I played was Galaga. - (AVC)

It’s a new month, so it’s time to talk about peri-menopause again! Hey, did you know your periods might be a goddamn carnival ride of “what in the actual f*ck is even happening NOW?” each month for, I don’t know, years? It’s fun. It’s so fun! - (SM)
