Kendra picks all of the Neil Gaiman.
You don’t even know how hard is was for me not to put ALL of Gaiman’s books on there.
Really, I should be given an award for the fact that only 50% of my Staff Picks are Gaiman.
That is a really good list.
What’re you reading?
I just picked up St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell.
I have a couple of ARCs I need to read and review after this one (The Diviners by Libba Bray and How the French Invented Love by Marilyn Yalom), but St. Lucy’s came highly recommended by basically everyone with whom I work, and I was craving something lovely and well-written. Hopefully it will not disappoint.
Here’s the thing: 20 is still in college age. 22+ is no longer in college age. That’s a big divide, experientially speaking.
I agree with Anna. Plus, I mean, can’t drink. WAIT. WAIT. INVITE HIM OUT AND HE CAN BE THE DD.
Thank you guys. I was feeling like I was being really weird about it, but I just COULD NOT, and really the difference in experiences is why. I feel like so much happens so fast in your early twenties that even small age differences like that matter a lot. All I could think was, “Jesus, do you know what it’s like to pay bills? To worry about making rent? OH GOD YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO DRINK LEGALLY IN PUBLIC. AND IF THERE’S EVER A TIME WHEN YOU WANT TO DRINK ILLEGALLY, I DO NOT WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN THAT SHIT.”
So, yeah. Anyway. It’s nice to know that I’m not being weird, because I spoke with someone about it afterward and they didn’t really seem to understand why I felt awkward about the whole experience.
Also: DYING at Sarcasm. WE ARE FOREVER IN NEED OF A DD SO WE CAN ALL GET DRUNK TOGETHER.
Ohmigod. So glad that Poki doesn’t do shit like this.
lol have you tried putting the roll on so it unrolls from below? can’t tell from this pic. ohhh cats. i was literally talking about this yesterday.
She’s never actually done this before! She sometimes likes to dig tissues out of the tissue box, but I took care of that problem. I’m hoping that this was a one time thing, but if not I’ll definitely try putting the roll the other way (although it goes against everything in which I believe re: proper toilet paper orientation).
Cats are such jerks.
