My stomach turned at the idea of a person next to me on a airplane whipping out room-temp "jammy" eggs at 30k feet. I love a jammy egg for breakfast at a restaurant or in my house but there's something specifically revolting about trying to transport a soft cooked egg yolk through TSA and onto an airplane oh God please no with the egg smell in economy class

What a fun list! ALSO: I really want to say that as a fellow newsletter writer who knows how much work this is, the design of this--graphics and such--is so lovely, well done!

As a curator at the National Gallery in London who’s been reading CoJ since before I was in grad school, I am PUMPED to see the National Gallery make this list! Thank you for creating this fabulous community this year; happy holidays! ❤️

This is all soooo great! So many treasures!

I wish I had Catherine Newman on speed dial for all of my parenting questions but this is the next best thing.

Thank you for such a cool roundup! (And as someone else already mentioned, the beautiful newsletter design. It's just so PLEASING.)

Two recommendations for end-of-year word treats; they've turned me on my head in the best way:

1) The OnBeing podcast episode with Sara Hendren (all about bodies, disability design, and the beauty of "needfulness")

2) The Andrea Gibson poem here: https://www.openhorizons.org/acceptance-speech-after-setting-the-world-record-in-goosebumps-andrea-gibson.html

Hi friends! Random question - does anyone have the link to the Trader Joe's mega spreadsheet a subscriber created ages ago? I can't find the post on Cup of Jo, but I remember the comment section blew up with recommendations and someone created a google doc with everyone's recs! Thanks in advance!
