Nine, four, eight, one, B-Day. Truly blessed that Queen B's birthday falls on a newsletter Friday. Listen to dedications from her family and friends. Or celebrate with me by putting "Grown Woman" on repeat, donning a tiara, and surrounding yourself with trophies.
Sept 15, Los Angeles: I'll be interviewing Rachel Hills about her new book, The Sex Myth, at Pages bookstore in Manhattan Beach. Details here.
Sept 28, the internet: I'm doing an AMA for ProductHunt. Sign up for a reminder to send me your questions during this live chat next month.
"@annfriedman in my inbox means the week is over -Mimi. It's a long American weekend, you guys. Enjoy it.
"catching up on the @annfriedman newsletter is the new catching up on The @NewYorker" -Jennifer Clark. You should probably still subscribe to The New Yorker tho.
"Super strong coffee, scones, and the @annfriedman newsletter. That's what Saturday looks like." -Brittany Giles. This is straight outta my Nancy Meyers/goop dreams.
"Sigh. Every Friday, I'm reminded that I want to be @annfriedman when I grow up." -Rachel Reed. You, too, can develop posture issues from too many hours hunched over a computer and try to correct them by imitating regal Beyoncé videos in your bedroom! My lifestyle is 100% attainable.
This newsletter does whatever it wants (whatever it wants).
Forward it to someone who's down like that (down like that).
