CW discussion of author’s potentially terminal illness
I love the way Anne Boyer puts words together in a way that I can’t quite pin down? This is the second book this year by a woman on the topic of illness (the first being Eula Biss’s On Immunity) and I’m anticipating going two for two on being very satisfied with my choices
Like it’s uh. CW many*, so like tread with caution, but I feel like a lot of people are trying to write this book and Mary Lambert actually did? A couple of the poems fell flat for me personally but also my overall impression was very positive, if in a “I need to lie down” kind of way.
I am happy to provide a list or check against specific needs on request
music rec but also cw: dementia, i legitimately do not recommend this if you have problems with unreality
anyway i’m playing “will this give me nightmares” chicken with this album and i say this as a person who finds Gazelle Twin’s “Unflesh” to be soothing; updates to follow
I accidentally got suckered into Chinese and Korean web novels and please someone else get into Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint so I can talk to someone about it and how punchable the main character is but somehow in a good way
And also, read it for Jung Heewon, best girl
on one hand am i ever going to wear a shirt that has a swear on it outside the house

“Feisty Cherry” Diet Coke – Supposed to have chili in it. I did not taste the kick in the same way as I did with the “Fire” flavor VitaminWater (which is good) but this is a perfectly okay cherry coke. I’m interested in trying the “Blueberry Acai” next.
Strawberry Rhubarb Fruit-on-the-Bottom Chobani – Good. Perfect. A+. This had better stick around.
