Happy weekend!

First of all, if you’re in the LA area, Heather and I are going to be at Vroman’s in Pasadena on Wednesday, the 17th, with New York Times best-selling author (and Fug National!) (and our friend!) Jasmine Guillory to discuss her new, fab book The Wedding Party. Please come by and join us!

I think you need a cute new sun hat!

This was a great piece at Vanity Fair: The Coast of Utopia: From the looks of Instagram, Courtney Adamo and the surfing mamas of Byron Bay are living the dream. Can it be real?”

Also quite a ride, at The Cut: “The Battle of Grace Church: What happened when Brooklyn’s oldest nursery school decided to become less old-fashioned? A riot among the one percent.”

This is a good piece about Mindy Kaling, over at Lainey.

HuffPo looks at the rise in Millennial Nuns — which is a thing that is happening. Maybe we’re all just sick of men.  (The piece is QUITE good, though. Much less glib that I was just now, I promise.)
