I spent most of this week on the sofa with Le Chat, a plant-basket-cum-puke-bowl by my side while my laptop played episode-after-episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in a soothing loop and I slowly survived a stomach flu and my period. Ladies, never let a man tell you you’re weak, for we can truly have unpleasantness coming from all exits and still live to tell the tale!
Here’s some stuff I came across before/after that horrific episode that I thought was pretty rad.
I’m obviously going to start with Amy Sedaris on Marc Maron’s WTF this week. Her laugh kills me and I love that this interview disintegrates into the kind of reminiscing I do with my high school friends when we’re all back together. “Hey remember when so-and-so did ______. Man, what happened to that guy?” There’s so much warmth and goodness between them and it’s a true joy to listen to. As Marc would say, DO IT UP!
My family has a political Whatsapp group that I’m very happily not a part of in which they site factually inaccurate– and often factually absent– “news” stories and then have at the topic like sharks going at a decomposing whale carcass. Last week they discussed their outrage over the amazing drag wunderkind, Desmond is Amazing– I don’t even want to get into what they think about this wonderful child but I will say that I’m glad David tipped me off to their discussion because knowing Desmond exists in the world, and is THRIVING, gives me so much joy. More Desmond, less bigotry!
I’m going to live in these Ivylee slides all spring and summer and I can’t even tell you how happy I am about it. I’ve been wearing them around the flat the last week or so and they make me feel like a) someone who has their life mostly together and b) Melora Hardin in The Bold Type, which is a vibe I 100% aspire to (especially in the scene when Sloan comes to her apartment for a talk and she looks so luxuriously casual that I almost died. Speaking of, when is The Bold Type back?)
And while we’re on the topic of SS19 fashion/beauty/whatever, I bought this RMS Beauty lipstick set a few weeks ago and am head-over-leopard-print-slides obsessed with the barbie pink shade Masquerade. It’s bright! It’s fun! WHY is this colour a limited edition onlyt?! 😩
Okay, back to the sofa. Bye bye!
