Okay, 2021 is back on the apocalyptic track. That is at least if you live in the US state of Texas where nearly 12 million people have been advised to boil tap water before consuming it after a deadly winter storm caused power outages at treatment facilities. Surely a nice advice but not entirely thought through as A) freezing temperatures have caused water pipes to burst and B) millions of households are without electricity or gas. Random question but what would you do if you were, let’s say, a Texas Senator and your state was in an unknown crisis with people reportedly freezing to death on the street? Right, you would fly to Cancun, Mexico – wait! WHAT? In fact, that is exactly what republican Senator Ted Cruz (usually known for barking the world’s stupidest things in any camera he can find) did. Nice, right? Especially since Cruz always was a staunch supporter of Trump’s infamous anti-immigration wall. So just in case after checking out candidates for the next presidential election you have enough energy left we invite you to spend it to read our gems of the day! They’ll surely heat you up, folks!

A woman messaged me on IG about her book club of 6 that is discussing my book tonight. I was like, girl, want me to pop on as a surprise for the last 15 mins?
She’s sworn to secrecy.
I am nerd level excited to surprise them.

rick riordan had a neurodivergent kid struggling through school in the early aughts and instead of writing some story where the mc «overcomes» their disability, he created an entire universe of books with disabled protagonists who save the day without compromising who they are

So I’m not getting a vaccine next week – was feeling weird about why I’d been selected ahead of others so rang GP to check. Turns out they had my height as 6.2cm rather than 6 ft 2, giving me a BMI of 28,000 😂

I’m starting a service that brings the movie theater experience to you. For just $87.99, you can get a large popcorn and drink and as I deliver them I will spill half of both right on your floor. For an extra $30, I will sit directly in front of you during the movie.

what Ted Cruz just did is what every wealthy person’s response will be to climate catastrophe.

I was born a female. I identify as a female. But according to Tesco’s sticky toffee pudding I’m a family of four.
