READING THIS WEEK...

I started following Rahawa Haile when she was posting a short story a day, and then followed along last year as she

hiked the Appalachian Trail

. I hope a book is coming out of this, and if so, I can't wait to read it.

I want to get

this whole article

tattooed on my body.

Rest in Power

, the legacy of Trayvon Martin.

Shaking my fist at

Murfreesboro, Tennessee

.

WATCHING AND LISTENING...

I've been watching the three-part ESPN documentary

O.J.: Made in America

. Turns out, there's 30 years of information I don't know about O.J. This documentary is fascinating, and it's streaming on Hulu.

RuPaul was on the 

Anna Faris Is Unqualified

 podcast and it was everything I wanted it to be, including Ru telling Anna and Sim that he would cut the callers off 10 minutes before they do, #prayerhandsemoji.
