Get ready for a cool pool party!
Good morning, fam!
Hope you all had a good week.
It’s hot as hell AND it’s long 4th of July weekend which can mean only one thing:
POOL SEASON STARTS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you live in STL and have/know someone with a pool, holla at ya boi! I will do anything1 for an hour or two of pool vibez.
While I try to scheme and plot my way into the bougiest pool I can find, check out this week’s recs.
Throw on your swim trunks, grab your flippy floppies, and let’s get into it.
Here’s what I have for you this morning:
After learning the only Miyazaki movie I’ve seen is Spirited Away, Abby sat me down and we watched Howl’s Moving Castle over two nights.2 Some beautiful scenes and great characters, but there was a little too much happening for me to fully follow.
My friend (and fellow season passer) Chris and I saw Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. It was fun, nostalgic, and went 0-60 within the first five minutes. With all of the crappy CGI flying around these days, I thought they did a surprisingly good job de-aging Harrison Ford. I’m just shocked he can keep up with Phoebe Waller-Bridge without breaking a hip!
Thanks to another free Playstation Plus download, I finally gave Farcry 6 for PS5 a try and hot damn is it fun! You play as as guerrilla fighter helping to liberate a tropical nation from…Giancarlo Esposito?! This game is basically Call of Duty with more plot, crafting, and better characters.
Have you ever been on a bad date? Personally, I didn’t really date enough to have any crazy stories, but on her podcast Bad Dates, Jameela Jamil and guests share the worst of the worst. This episode is especially bonkers.
OK, so call me crazy but I finally had Chicken Tikka Masala for the first time (from Rasoi) and holy hell was it amazing! It might be the best Indian dish I’ve ever had and will 100% only be ordering it from now on.
At work, we have a saying when it comes to how we should be using generative AI: the focus should be to automate the mundane so you can focus on the humane. This is a perfect example of how doctors are currently using it.
Here’s some not-so-helpful work advice to mull over during this holiday weekend.
I've been thinking a lot about one question we're all asked as kids. It's meant to help, but ends up causing a lot of stress, anxiety, and (if you're me), therapy.
You made it to the end! As a bonus, I’ll leave you with this.
Yes, I mean anything.
Because I’m 34 and fall asleep on the couch way too easily.
