Happy MLK Day! Hopefully, most of you, or at least many of you, have the day off and are enjoying the first long weekend of the year. Drew had to work today, but he’s taking a Monday off two weeks from today and we’re going to spend a night at a swanky inn upstate, just the two of us, so I can’t complain. Jackson’s sitter opted to save her vacation time and is also working today, so I am using the morning to catch up and get ahead. Maybe I’ll even manage to write all of this week’s columns today, which would be nice. I’m also going to read through some submissions, and write down a few thoughts on The Fault of Our Stars for our book club discussion, since I finished it yesterday. (Last night, I started reading Wonder Boys, which I hope to complete before we start our next book club book).
I won’t be posting a new column today, but I did post a couple letters in the forums you can check out. And tonight I’ll be doing a live chat of “The Bachelor” in the forums. Speaking of: what do you guys think of the Juan Pablo controversy where he called gays “perverts”? And speaking of controversy, what about Jezebel paying 10 grand for unphotoshopped pics of Lena Dunham’s Vogue shoot? Pathetic, is what I think. For a feminist blog, Jezebel is such a Mean Girl. Always has been. Also, for those of you who love football, this sentence is for you.
