Tom Cruise-ing for a bruising in his worst movie ever.
Good morning, fam!
Hope you all had a good week.
Shit’s been bonkers with work stuff, house closing stuff, and our a cappella group’s show stuff, so I’m keeping this one short and sweet.
While I take a slow the eff down and practice some #selfcare, check out this week’s recs.
Breathe in, breathe out, and let’s get into it.
Here’s what I have for you this morning:
I just finished James Acaster’s Guide to Quitting Social Media and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read. Imagine a very meta comedy special about recreating everything you get from social media IRL1 but you’re reading it over the course of 250+ pages. If you read a book but can’t tag the author online, did you even read the book? (★★★★•)
Our Tom Cruise-themed movie night finally backfired after we watched Legend. It’s basically a shitty Lord of the Rings but replace Sauron with Satan from that Match.com commercial and instead of Frodo and Sam, the heroes are Tom Cruise’s thighs. Probably not worth the watch. (★••••)
If you haven’t yet, give Olivia Rodrigo’s new album GUTS a listen. It’s got that old school punk vibe and showcases her awesome writing skills. (★★★★•)
Welp, I found another Trader Joe’s obsession: their Peanut Butter Caramel Coated Popcorn. It’s the perfect fall snack to enjoy while watching a movie, hanging at a bonfire, or while watching TikTok videos in bed.2 (★★★★★)
During our date night in, I tried this Giesen 0% Sauvignon Blanc and it was…OK. Not as good as the Leitz Eins Zwei Zero wines I’ve shared, but still drinkable. (★★•••)
If you’re a book nerd like me, than “These 38 Reading Rules Changed My Life” will also help you enjoy every book you read even more. (★★★★•)
When it comes to your work, “If you want to be the noun, you have to do the verb.” Great advice from Austin Kleon. (★★★••)
You made it to the end! As a bonus, I’ll leave you with this.
That’s “in real life” for all you boomers out there ;)
Or so I hear…
