A little reading before bed on a wild Friday night 😜 A lot of historical information, well researched, but I don‘t feel like I‘m reading a textbook (so far). I have NOT seen the movie 🍿

I was expecting this to be a light-hearted SNL listen (a la Tina Fey, Colin Jost, etc) but, holy sh*t, some of it is horrifying! I‘m not saying it‘s a bad listen at all, just unexpected from the guy who did SNL‘s Bill Clinton impersonation and Sean “I‘ll take S words for 500” Connery

“I‘ve never met a celebrity who does not respond to the opening line, ‘Congratulations.‘ Try it. It takes four seconds for them to come up with the reason they‘re being congratulated, and they‘re instantly in a good mood.”

“definition of a victimless crime” 😂 enjoyable quick read, but it‘s definitely a library pick for me. Don‘t think I‘d actually buy this one. Love Kathy tho

Another find from NPR‘s Best of 2021 list. Chock full of information! You could make a sweet playlist after reading this 🎤

“Feeding wild animals is the quickest path to conflict. The promise of food motivates normally human-shy animals to take a risk. The risk-taking is rewarded, and the behavior escalates. Shyness becomes fearlessness, and fearlessness becomes aggression. If you don‘t hand over the food you‘re carrying, the monkey will grab it. If you try to hold onto it, or push the animal away, Qureshi says, it may slap you. Or bite you.” [pic unrelated]

Hit the earth three times with your stick. Lift your eyes to the hole in the night. Remember that darkness simply requires another way of seeing. Be your own light. And just like that, you‘ll find yourself everywhere instantly. Field field field, one of us thinks. Hockey hockey hockey, we reply. There are so many things to say in the language of our kind, but really, nothing more needs to be said.

Saw this book mentioned on NPR (maybe the best books of 2021 collection?). Don‘t be fooled by the staid cover; there is some quality, wry stuff in here. Got this from the library 😍

Monsters | Barry Windsor-Smith

Pickpick

The scope of this book is wide (and cruel at times). But I guess it takes a village to create a monster. I got a little lost but the storylines and characters are meaningful. Very good graphic novel if you‘re into that.

Destroy All Monsters was another graphic novel on NPR‘s Best Book list. The library didn‘t have that one, but we did have these! They look very 70‘s, crime, noir, B movie so I‘m gonna check them out 🪓

Instead of asking people “What‘s wrong with you?” we should be asking “What happened to you?” Oprah and a brain scientist talk about how trauma causes adult maladaptive behavior. I‘m listening to the audiobook and it comes across a bit like a podcast honestly! The science isn‘t too complicated to understand and they‘re using a lot of real world examples showcasing what concept they‘re trying to put forth. Enjoying this one @ 1.2x speed 🙇‍♀️

Calypso | David Sedaris

“I felt betrayed, the way you do when you discover that your cat has a secret secondary life and is being fed by neighbors who call him something stupid like Calypso. Worse is that he loves them as much as he loves you, which is to say not at all, really. The entire relationship has been your own invention.”

I have Psalm for the Wild-Built on my Kindle, but saw this at the library and it was kinda short looking and had good reviews so though I‘d give it a shot. Looks like the characters can take supplements and live on hostile planets, for some reason I read that and was like COOL I NEED 2 READ IMMEDIATELY ??

Also started this one by Lindy West. A collection of essays where Lindy “rewatch[es] successful movies from the past to see how they hold up to our shifting modern sensibilities.” She rates movies on a scale of 1 out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive, whereas The Fugitive is rated 13 dvds out of 10 dvds of The Fugitive.

This book is the authors debut and it‘s really good. Raj is on the verge of getting kicked off his elite tennis club after saying something beyond cringey and inappropriate while interviewing prospective members. Only so many people could pull off writing the protagonist‘s “faux pas” as well as Pandya does. Raj is a fully fleshed out, woeful character that I can‘t help but root for.

I thought this book was released in 2005 bc the cover was a little corny, but it‘s from 2020! There are some terrible jokes in here but I died laughing in Chapter 2 (still reading, only on Chapter 3, so could keep going or could fall flat, who knows). For now I am very happy with this checkout from the library. Spill the tea plz ☕️

My current read is very interesting and Matt Parker does a great job of taking the math out of the math talk. Every few pages are packed with real world examples of humans mistakenly applying math (or maybe math getting the last laugh?). Fun read. I‘ll pick it up later though because Teddy needs the lumbar support for right now. #catcuddles

Young, beautiful sister murders men. Older sister is a bit more reserved (also a nurse!) & helps the younger one clean up the mess. Set in Lagos, Nigeria.

We don‘t get all the WHYs, but there‘s enough there to guess. The author does a great job of showing and not telling in terms of the sisters‘ dynamic, police corruption, women/men & power, etc. The chapters are short and punchy, the book moves fast.
