Good Reads

Just in time for football season: building the mother of all snack stadiums. 

Decoding the tribal rituals of fashion week. 

Given I work at Queen’s Park and in communications, this issue has been both very close and fascinating to follow: Ontario’s sex ed revolution and the powerful new political bloc it’s created.

I haven’t seen a single episode of The Mindy Project, but I do like reading interviews about what Mindy Kaling is reading. This quote from said interview is gold:

My book club would be held on Sunday afternoons. Dress code: warm-weather black tie. Cocktails from 3 to 3:30. Chitchat from 3:30 to 4. Personal drama from 4 to 5. Book discussion from 5 to 5:30. Early dinner from 5:30 to 7. Then everyone goes home.

Dear non-fat people. A thoughtful, thought-provoking letter from my lovely friend Meredith.

“And like most cultural shifts in language, the rise of ‘mama’ is about power and discontent.”
