Happy Friday, everyone.

Everyone – absolutely everyone – seems to have a very strong opinion about the color of this dress. It’s pretty entertaining, and interesting in terms of what our eyes tell us vs. what is actual reality. I will delight/horrify readers by telling them what I see: a bluish-gray dress with dirt-brown trim. Since no one in their right mind would make a dress with these colors, I figured it was a white & gold dress in a photo taken with horrible lighting, and the white looked blue the same way snow can look blue in shadow. I can’t see royal blue and jet black…yet, anyway.

From Julie: Ridiculously overdue library books! 

Also from Julie: Princeton University now owns four Shakespeare Folios and six first (printed) editions of the Bible. Wow.

Also also from Julie: The fascinating (and sobering) study of plague graffiti.

From Cassandra: When lawsuit details go online, everyone gets in on the act. 

I’m always interested in what Warren Ellis is doing, and one of his newest projects is Injection, a series by him, Declan Shalvey, and Jordie Bellaire. Can’t wait to see it.

Have a spiffy and safe weekend, everyone. See you next week.
