Everything else in the thread is important, but I did want to especially shoutout Fran and Amal for always being the best.

During my visit to Wadi Nisnas market earlier today, I had fatteh al hummus for the first time. It will not be the last. This was SO GOOD.

If you like the MCU and you don't hate women, you're probably gonna like it.

This isn't a superhero show. It isn't really a lawyer show, at this point. I think it's gonna have elements of both. It's funny and fun, and also has an emotional core. It's definitely one for MCU fans, with many references.

PSA: There's a mid-credits scene in the first episode of She-Hulk.

Also, I enjoyed the episode and Tatiana Maslany remains the bestest.

NOT ONLY IS THE BMI FAKE ITS RACIST. THE BEAUTY AND DIET INDUSTRIES CONSPIRE TO SAP WOMEN OF THE COLLECTIVE ENERGY NECESSARY TO DESTROY THE PATRIARCHY. ALL THE ACTORS YOU SEE ON THE COVER OF MENS HEALTH TAKE HGH. DO YOU LISTEN TO PODCASTS? THERES ONE CALLED MAINTENANCE PHASE--

And now I do know. It went to 54 percent in about two hours of non-intensive use. Darn. I had my heart set on a Pixel 7, but it's time to plot a new course.

.@ShopifySupport continues to host Libs of Tiktok's merch store where they used the term "GROOMER" as a discount code. They also engaged in targeted harassment of Taylor Lorenz by featuring a photo of her crying to sell merch.

Researchers completed the first large longitudinal study on trans children this year. They found only 97.5% of trans kids continued to identify as trans. Those that desisted did so for various reasons including the violence faced as trans people. publications.aap.org/pediatric

After two years of good service, it looks like planned obsolescence is hitting my phone. Battery used to last all day, and is now draining faster and faster. I was hoping I could wait for the Pixel 7, but now... I dunno.

The thing about Judith Deuteros is that she is always wrong. Especially when she assumes, which is much more often than she thinks.

I'm so overjoyed to reveal the cover of PROMISES STRONGER THAN DARKNESS, the third book in the Unstoppable trilogy, out April 11. This is my fav of the three gorgeous covers from @Razaras2 and @lworrelldesign.

But who's in the top right-hand corner? Who could it POSSIBLY BE??

Workers aren’t “quiet-quitting” to avoid burnout. They’re refusing to have their labor stolen without compensation. Idk why there are so many bad articles about this
