Welcome back to Wednesday Links! How have you all been?!

The allergies have finally hit. They’ve hit so hard that I was in tears because of the sinus pressure and spent most of Monday night in a dark room with a compress over my eyes, breathing out of my mouth, listening to podcasts. My partner stepped in to cook dinner and be a lovely caretaker that night. They were very supportive of my wallowing.

We’re also in a bit of a heatwave. It’s supposed to be in the 90s this weekend! What?! I am not ready for the boob sweat, though shoutout to the MegaBabe Thigh Rescue stick.

How do y’all make it through the warmer temps? Any tips and tricks?

If you’re in the New England area and are free June 9th, I’m hosting a romance mad-libs event for the Boston Book Fest Lit Crawl with debut romance author Kataline Gamarra! I’m very nervous, but excited. I’m also assisting Boston Book Fest with genre programming this year, so keep an eye out for some great romance panels this fall.

Love a “truth is stranger than fiction” deep dive? Check out The New Yorker’s profile on a serial killer expert who just bluffed his way into the title. This one may be behind a paywall for some.

Just discovered this new organization through TikTok called Elevated Access, where pilots volunteer their time to fly people needing reproductive healthcare and gender affirming care to accessible states. Please note that they have applied for their 501(c)(3) status and are awaiting approval. Definitely going to keep an eye on them!

Writer and critic Alex Brown has an amazing thread on Our Flag Meanings Death characters as characters from Jane Austen novels. I’ve just started on Our Flag Meanings Death and I’m loving it so far!

lastly, This Hulu movie starring Emma Thompson may be of interest to the Bitchery!

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
