Best of the web
I did not go into the office today (hint: I’m writing this on Thursday night) because, well, yesterday I found out I have bursitis in my right shoulder. And while no one can tell without an MRI, the suspicion is that there is a tiny tear in my rotator cuff causing it. And by the way, no idea how I did this. I woke up at 4 AM in excruciating pain and by 2 PM, was leaving work to go to the doctor. My shoulder has been a little achy since Sunday night but this was just suddenly like WHAM. I don’t actually like working from home but I do like not having to spend three hours in the car, so there’s that. But I do have a little cabin fever right now and may just have to take a walk outside when I finish this post.

- Current, new TV obsessions: The Crown (Netflix) and Victoria (PBS Masterpiece). Never thought I’d get into period shows but I LOVE THEM. Clearly every show ever should be about the British Monarchy.
