It's been a terrible week. Have some puppies.

Turns out that turnabout isn't all that fair play: Catcalling dudes just isn't all that fun.

Shoulda called him Remington: a fake male entrepreneur gets more call-backs than the real women founders.

Medievalists struggle with the way nazis love them.

Ta-Nehisi Coates is on fire: And so the most powerful country in the world has handed over all its affairs-the prosperity of its entire economy; the security of its 300 million citizens; the purity of its water, the viability of its air, the safety of its food; the future of its vast system of education; the soundness of its national highways, airways, and railways; the apocalyptic potential of its nuclear arsenal-to a carnival barker who introduced the phrase grab 'em by the pussy into the national lexicon. It is as if the white tribe united in demonstration to say, "If a black man can be president, then any white man-no matter how fallen-can be president." And in that perverse way, the democratic dreams of Jefferson and Jackson were fulfilled.

ETA: If you think your data has been compromised (like mine!) by the Equifax breach, here's a guide on how to put a freeze on your credit. It's not perfect, but it's a start.

Holy crap the most comprehensive Metafilter post about pie. None more pie. (When come back, bring pie!)

Bookmarked for later evaluation: something about identifying your home style.

I haven't bought anything from Everlane yet, but I am interested in their new jeans. The Cut did a review; sadly they only chose thin women models, apparently all under 40, so I don't have a good sense of how they would do on my thickening menopausal frame. And of course the jeans themselves only go up to about size 14, it looks like. (Sigh.) The price point is appealing, though.

Courtesy of Metafilter, I have found a recipe for chai spice cake; I will experiment with it at some point and report back.

In the interim, I have to make a slab pie for an enormous memorial service next weekend. I don't have the energy to experiment, so if it doesn't work, it will just be composted.

This fucking year, I swear.
