    My linebacker shoulders and I weep whenever there’s a gorgeous print dress with puffy sleeves. I will be happy when this trend passes!

  2. Laura says:

    What great articles! The one with recipies from restaurants is particularly fun, I can’t wait to make the cinnamon banana bread. Although as a Seattlite I thought the blurd from Canlis (a Seattle restaurant) was wierdly condescending.

  3. Jessica says:

    A million stars for the part powder! It is a miracle product, and each bottle lasts a long time (be careful on expiration though because it is sunscreen).

  4. Amanda says:

    WOW that Michael Harriot Twitter thread is good. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Ral says:

    Great post! Loved the NY Times recipes and restaurant summaries, esp the one on Millie Peartree Fish Fry & Soul Food and how she’s helping others in her community. Will be fun to make their recipes. Hope the restaurants all come back.

    I sometimes question these “managing up” articles–I think sometimes it gives employees the idea that they should be doing their managers’ jobs for them.

    There are some problems where the solutions are clear, where you think, “if only we could do it this way.” You bring that concern to your manager and explain why your way makes sense, then discuss if there are reasons why your way may not work.

    But I’ve run into issues where I was promised to be taken off of a project for months and months, and it is not my job to figure out how to make that happen if it was promised to me. As in, who would take my place, how the work would be allocated without me, etc. That is management, which is not my job. And I wonder if women tend to be the ones who try to solve all their managers’ problems, meaning extra work for them in the end.

    Just something I think about.

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
