Fair Warning - Racism, literature, and timey wimey
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #120 • View online
Hello hello! This week’s Fair Warning is brought to you by the realisation that Greggs vegan sausage rolls are Actually Good (yes, two years late), and that everyone deserves enriching and fulfilling two-way relationships. Good life advice, that.
Things that made me smile this week:

  • If you want to scream into the abyss, this comes quite close (scream into the Icelandic wilderness). Don’t do what I did and open it and forget it’s there, because 20 minutes later you’ll hear a blood-curdling scream from your computer and it’ll scare the life out of you :)
  • Make a tiny ecosystem in an orb (I genuinely spent a while on this, because I am Basic)

I am extremely tired/have had an emotionally-trying week and I’m not really in the right mood to pick sides or get too invested in this, so you’ll have to decide for yourselves…
