Graveyard Sisters author spotlight: Nuzo Onoh
Nuzo is one of my favourite writers at the minute. This is a potted biography of her, and then a little synopsis of her book of short stories. She's got a couple of novellas out as well, and they're all ace.

That article about how companies should fire their Ricks, as shared by many other people
I kind of… It's easy to take this story at face value, but I can't help but think that every single other employee was being an arsehole here too. Like, why did it take six months of one man trying to carry the entire company before someone worked out it wasn't sustainable? Of COURSE he was stressed and angry and thought you were being ungrateful. The smug tone of this is really bothering me. Still, maybe that dude really was an arsehole, toxic people DO exist. But it's just possible that this is post hoc justification of bullying as well. And we'll never really know, will we?

Mastodon Bridge
If you're considering migrating from Twitter to Mastodon this is a great little tool which helps you find your friends who are on both. Two notes, though: 1, you have to make sure you use the right syntax in the mastodon box ($yourname@yourserver - so for instance mine is miss_s_b@mastodon.social with no initial @) and 2, it only finds people who also use Mastodon bridge - so I guess you'll have to check it periodically to see new signees.

After Weinstein, let’s stop asking women to answer for their sex predator’s crimes
A long and damning list of answers to the "why didn't she do X?" questions that inevitably get asked in these situations, all of which are answered with "she did, and she suffered in Y way for it".

Fiercest of rivals, best of friends: cross-party pals in parliament
This is an extremely Westminster Bubble fluff piece.
I mean, it's nice that people get on in their workplace and all, but outside Westminster, all we hear from voters is "they're all the same". This is more proof of that.

Susan Calman & Kevin Clifton Quickstep to 'Bring Me Sunshine' by The Jive Aces
Because everything is shit at the moment, and we all need a slice of unbridled joy at the moment, watch this. I'm only sorry it's just the dance and not the scoring, in which Susan reacts like a football player celebrating the cupwinning goal.
