The television show article looks like it may be the thing that gets me to (finally) actually subscribe to all things NYMag/Vulture.
After looking at the Vulture television listings I realize I have GOT to get the whole HBOMax thing figured out. Austin is back to Stage 5 so the Friday listings are a great distraction so thank you, Kim (plus I put on my new raspberry sweats when I first climbed out of bed and the color immediately lifted my spirits––humm…there may be something to that wearing yellow thing!) Have a great weekend, everyone!!
CW, You are starting to REALLY tempt me with those sweats! What type of top do you wear with them? Kim, any chance of a long sleeve tee post, soon? For some reason it is a real hole in my wardrobe.
Since I wear them at home, Eloise, basically any top I currently have on. If I were to wear them outside I’d turn to a long sleeve white tee or chunky white sweater depending on the weather. The stripes down the side are pink, orange, mustard and white if that helps.
I just started Grace Bonney’s compilation, Collective Wisdom, which might just be the best gift i bought myself this holiday season (it was on one of Andrea’s lists). Order this book for yourself NOW, good humans. It should be on that Guardian List. And get the book. This is not for the electric reader. It’s just too gorgeous.
My copy should arrive today! Kim, if Bookshop or another indie purveyor has an affiliate program for links, I’d happily click a link in your podcast posts to buy any books mentioned.
That Guardian list tells you to wear yellow. You’re so shamelessly bought 🙂
It would appear so!
Great episode. Always evolve. And there’s much to be said about multi-generational friendships. I’m in my 40s and have made friends playing tennis with someone in their 60’s during the pandemic. A lot of wisdom (and wit) in those lives!
I cannot agree more. I recently became friends with a young woman my son’s age (I’m 57, son is 22) & it’s been really great. I get a peek into all kinds of cultural stuff i wouldn’t know otherwise, but also -knowing her makes me feel better about the future of the world. Now
I need to find me some 60+year olds.
Fantastic podcast this week as usual !
The Bright Young Things article was so so interesting – makes me think of the daughters of Downton Abby – they were their contemporaries, no?
This week’s episode with Grace Bonney was exactly what I needed to start the New Year. Thanks so much! (Also relieved to hear I’m not the only one creating content with the ulterior motive of making new friends in my forties)
