That Time We Clicked

Eight years ago today, I was getting ready to go on what I already hoped would be my last first date.  The boy liked Japanese fiction, beer, and obscure bands and the girl liked all of those things, and the boy, too. Online dating and I were on a break.  Had reached an impasse.  Agreed to disagree. And yet. Two weeks before, I saw this guy.  This guy that seemed different to all the other guys. Different because, well, he wasn’t my type.  But maybe, I’d been thinking my type was an asshole. And this guy, this blondish, bearded...

London Book Haul

Thought I’d share my book haul from London.  Because it is physically impossible for me to travel and not come back with books.  And penguin pillows.  Apparently. Book links are Book Depository affiliate links.  More about that here.  I’m aware that that post outlines a blogging schedule, and that today is actually Thursday.  Hi.  Take note of the title of the first book listed. Anything is Possible, Elizabeth Strout – I’ve been a little obsessed since I read my My Name is Lucy Barton.  Anything is Possible was my train book, and I am exactly half-way through it.  Amazing....
