READING THIS WEEK..

It should surprise none of you that I had a therapy appointment recently about this 

exact same topic

. There's probably a blog post coming.

If like me, you've been aggravated by the praise lavished on the producers of

La La Land

for their 'heroic' handling of the Oscars screwup,

this

will help.

The framing of this is irritating, but I appreciate GQ's attempt to rally

male support for Planned Parenthood

.

You can have my undying love for

Oprah

when you pry it from my COLD, DEAD HANDS.

I've been waiting on

this movie

to come out since the

trailer

was released a million years ago. Hopefully I'll have time to see it this weekend.

WATCHING AND LISTENING...

On a random weekday in late February,

RuPaul's Drag Race

disappeared from Hulu. I thought it was a glitch in my Roku, turns out it's because the show is

moving to VH1

. Ugh. Can I stream VH1?

I cannot stop thinking about Sunday's "American Bitch" episode of

Girls

, so imagine my glee at reading this

New Yorker

piece

by Emily Nussbaum, *prayer hands emoji.

Do you guys know

Katie Couric has a podcast

? It's pretty good. In general, I'm loving 

Pod Save America

and

Put Your Hands Together

. I've been listening to PYHT while I walk the greenway. The people behind me probably think I'm nuts because I'm walking alone, laughing and snorting. The February 16 episode with

Maggie Maye

- fire. Legit lulz. She's one of my favorite comedians.

I ENDORSE...

Seances

. Yes, seances.

Drunk girls in bar bathrooms

.

The

men of

Moonlight

.

lulz...
