What Is Your Deal With Carly Rae Jepsen?
Two years ago, after enduring my numerous (NUMEROUS) social media posts and IRL chatter about her, a good friend of mine pointedly asked me WHAT IS YOUR DEAL WITH CARLY RAE JEPSEN? So this few thousand words here is my explanation of the nature of my deal with Carly Rae Jepsen.

Love this. Last weekend, after eleven months of training and dread, I ran a marathon for the first time in my life. At mile ten, my playlist queued up Cut to the Feeling, which had me dancing and bouncing for three effervescent minutes. Great pop is priceless and CRJ is a treasure.

I love this essay. I love your voice. Hot dog! This is good stuff.

Completely apropos of nothing, here is me covering “Cut to the Feeling.” Sorry.

Tom Hanks in video, adorable. Thank you for that. :)

My kids and I are all at the right ages where just sending them the 💃 emoji to remind them that I'm going to my hip-hop class causes them to shrivel in embarrassment, no matter that they're getting that text while still in bed, alone, on a weekend morning before anyone under the age of 19 has any desire to be awake.

And so this Joy Division-and-J&MC-loving mom concurs: "Be cool on your own time, we’re trying to dance here."
