  • And speaking of podcasts, did you listen to this week’s episode of Everything is Fine yet? We’ve got memoirist Ashley C Ford, and she’s just so great. Also, we had a blast last week during our live Zoom event, so do join our Patreon, as we’ll be doing these monthly.

    Those Lego album covers are amazing! Artistic people just blow my mind. (And make me super-jealous!😉)

    These links look so fun. Viajera and Michele, twice my responses to y’all in the previous post got eaten. Fingers crossed this one doesn’t. Badedas is woodsy, comparable to Vitabath. Get the shower gel version (Their official bubble bath version got reformulated so the shower gel provides the best version.) However, if woodsy isn’t your thing, Algemarin is soothing in a fresh, clean way and turns your bath water bright blue. Michele, you can still buy tote bags from the Strand: Strand has the best tote bags. (Though, have I just started a bookstore tote bag feud thread, with commenters insistent that such-and-such-indie-book-place has the best tote? If so, sorry.) Viajera, it’s okay if you don’t like eggplant, more for me. I myself don’t like dill pickles, despite loving dill, so you’re welcome to all my share of dill pickles.

    These Friday links are some of the most interesting things I see all week. Your podcasts are also top notch- honest and real. A commenter recently said you’re doing your best work these days and I agree.
    Oh, and I stumbled across Puma x Liberty yesterday. 😱💐❤️ Have you seen it?
