@Nezchan Elena Ferrante. They are four books that follow a pair of friends mostly from one of them's perspective through the 1950s to 90s in and around Naples. The first book is called "My Brilliant Friend"!
@wobin I knew they were delicious together but not the why! Awesome!
i have the day off work today and it’s sweltering out there so i’m settling in with a cross stitch and trying out a new fictional podcast series called The Last Movie. i’ve listened to the other 3 made by the same people (The Black Tapes, Tanis, and Rabbits), which i love, so I’m sure this one will be great too.
@Nezchan this reminds me of the Neapolitan books. The female friendship at the core of the story ended up not being central in the way I expected; a very distant friendship, but where I understood, or maybe recognized, the relationship between the two women. Maybe you'd like it :)
@Louisa all teenagers are, tbh
@TQ okay I absolutely love this look, which is amazing since I don't think I like the lipstick itself very much! This is a compliment, I hope I don't sound like an idiot 😅
@deneb once again fluffers never leaving his post, I hope he got a raise!! 🤩
@Pixley do they even have eyes? You will never know!
@Pixley I don't see how, please explain
@Louisa okay I had to Google what a relish is because I see your breakfast sandwiches and now this and I must have this in my life!
@hafnia when we had two kittens over one of them tried escaping and ran into our bedroom, which was off limits. We built up the elborate scenario where this kitten was a two-roomer and tried to convince the other, an obvious one-roomer, consistently debunked her theories. Quarantine is going fine!!!!!!!
@tripofmice my mom called me this week because she somehow found herself with one of those and had no idea what it was. It does not matter how it's called! It's good!!!
pursuer of too many hobbies, one of em leftists, hugger of cats, likes data science and hates that it is done by a bunch of idiots
