The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary

“It occurs to me that Leon could actually be any kind of weird. Keeping scarfs isn‘t in itself weird, but it could be the tip of the iceberg. Plus there was quite a large number of scarfs in there — at least ten. What if he stole them? Shit. What if they are trophies of the women he murdered? Maybe he‘s a serial killer. A winter-based killer who only strikes in scarf weather.”

monalyisha #highlyrelatablecontent I get exactly this kind of irrational when I‘m home alone/left to my own devices. 😅 5mo

Busy Philipps is all of us.
#highlyrelatablecontent

*My audiobook for #NewYearWhoDis (“Killers of the Flower Moon”) is stuck in my car, which is stuck in the shop. So, I‘m taking the opportunity to start in on Busy Philipps‘ memoir, “This Will Only Hurt a Little.” Honestly, I can‘t say I‘m too mad about it. 😝 I‘ve been dying to listen!

“I may never know why they chose to keep the show going (Alec Baldwin), but my proudest moment as an adult was walking back onto the soundstage and telling everyone they still had jobs. (My proudest moment as a child was the time I beat my Uncle Pierre at Scrabble with the seven-letter word FARTING).”

Heard this song on the radio & thought I‘d share the #highlyrelatablecontent.

Other, lyrical gems:

“I'm working backwards, forwards
And left to right
And I'm pretty darn hard headed
But I can't make up my mind.”

“I like to figure things out and make everything right
But I'm secretly thrilled when everything's changing.”

Listen for yourself!:

“I‘d noticed that other people had this adolescent gift for “spiraling out of control,” of “going off the rails,” but whatever catch inside of themselves they managed to release... I wasn‘t able to find in myself. Instead, self-consciously, like an athlete deciding on a new training regime, I decided to go off the rails. But no one took me very seriously, least of all my mother, for she considered me a fundamentally reliable teenager.”

monalyisha Pictured: one fundamentally reliable teenager, circa 2004, with my senior prom date. Later that night, he smoked a cigarette & I remember the taste of it & feeling so *bad* when he kissed me. 😅 I‘m literally wearing pale pink & Swiss dots. It‘s hard to imagine a more innocent-looking prom dress. (I remember distinctly that my ex-boyfriend‘s prom date was wearing a skin-tight, slinky, backless dress with a low cut v-neck. Goddamn it.)

CouronneDhiver Ha! Same. Very innocent time for me too... lime green sparkly, floor-length strapless dress. 👗 1y

QuietlyLaura My dress was lovely! All pink lace with a full skirt and a shawl type neckline. I actually wore that dress to both of my proms. Can't say the same for the dates! 😂😉 1y
