Taylor Swift’s “folklore” Songs as First Ladies

When Taylor sings about showing her lover around the park in her hometown where she used to read, it reminded me of Michelle and Barack’s first date. I couldn’t help but think of them walking through Chicago, Michelle’s hometown, to get some ice cream and sharing a kiss on the sidewalk. May their invisible string tie them together for a long, long time.

July Horoscopes

Oh no, it’s July! That means that 2020 is half over. There are pros and cons to this of course. Con: A clear reminder of the inescapable march of time. Pro: Only a few months until my favorite Christmas herbal tea is back in stores. This spirit of conflict will be present throughout the whole month, especially for air signs! Let’s dive in and see what else the stars can reveal to us.

Tips on Beating the Heat from an Edwardian Lady

“Wear light-weight silk panties and leave your titties hanging out. If you must wear a shirt, make sure it’s a linen button down and act out that scene from Risky Business.” I thought I would use my historian brain and to give you some tips on how to beat the heat like a proper lady from the Ladies’ Home Journal.

Famous People I Thought Were the Same Person

I have no idea who anyone is. I can’t remember names and I can’t remember faces. This issue extends far beyond my daily interactions. It is particularly acute with celebrities. They’re always changing hair color and losing/gaining weight for roles and all white men with brown hair look the same on a molecular level. And I don’t see them nearly as often as I should. But some of these mistakes are 100% me being a dumbass. Here are my worst confusions.
