I am inspired by this fireball streaking across the sky.

In Minnesota on Wednesday night, Newsweek reports, a police dashcam captured a meteor hurtling toward Earth from the vacuum of space and vaporizing in the atmosphere in a spectacular ball of light, a reminder that we’re spinning at 1000 miles per hour on a space pebble made up of atoms coalesced from a miraculous primordial blast of inconceivable heat: setting in motion a timeline which would billions of years later allow Diddy’s son to rep Dolce&Gabbana menswear, Selma Hayek to live forever, and you to visit this installment of Jezebel’s weekly series of blog posts “Saturday Night Social”! Thank you for coming.

What are you guys looking forward to right now?

For me, I scheduled a sinus surgery for two weeks from Monday! Recovery tips and TV/movie suggestions are welcome and appreciated. I’m super jazzed, because I’ve gotten 6 sinus infections per year for the last 4 years, and can barely function from October-March. This should be pretty life changing.
