Cary reads this himself which makes it so enjoyable. I love hearing how nervous he was that he wouldn't get the part. The travelled all the way to you and left behind a thousand dollar jacket because of Chernobyl exposure fear just to meet him. He had that role. They only needed him to read four words.

Just a reminder that the #autumncomfortswap is budget friendly. If you over committed yourself based on what I emailed you that you signed up to send, just adjust to your need. The minimum commitment to send is the card with little bookish items. Other than that freestyle it from there. @julieclair @Avanders @maich @Chrissyreadit @JessieKB @Captivatedbybooks @Kshakal @TheBookHippie @LapReader @KadaGul @Ke633

Take another to acknowledge receiving yours. And of course pictures of everyone's goodies on the day. Remember good used condition or new for books.

Annie Bot | Sierra Greer
Mehso-so

This book is an interesting look at what it might be like to be in an abusive relationship. It explores the nuance of seeming to be property. It also explores consent. This book will make you squirm, and it should. I only give this two stars because it reads like a first draft, rather than a completed product. If you are a fan of stepford wives or pleasantville, you will know what you're in for.

Shit, Actually | Lindy West
Mehso-so

That was the least humorous thing I've read that was trying to be funny. Her COVID stress oozed right off the page.

The essay on twilight and Titanic were the highlights of the book. Honestly I feel quite ambivalent about this book. I didn't love it, didn't hate it. It just exists.

I'm gonna combo platter these my most recent job was working my country's last federal election. The most exhausting and the most rewarding. Not a job I ever considered on my own. My grandmother got me work on my first provincial election. My ideal work life balance would be working 3 full days a week with the rest of the week off. Ideally making enough money to own my own home and have a few pets. #wondrouswednesday

Starting my garden for the year. Tomatoes are in pots and I'm getting my seeds ready. Trying propagating the tomato plant, hopefully it works! #gardening #whatsnewwednesday

jessinikkip Nice! I keep meaning to get a cherry tomato plant and try growing my own. Is it hard? 2mo
thebacklistbook @jessinikkip tomatoes are the easiest thing to grow. They typically need 6 to 8 hours sunlight full sun to dappled is good. Starting from a mature plant is probably easiest for a first time. Small tomatoes are usually indeterminate though so you will need a tall trellis or cage to support them or do them from a hanging basket. Check the label on the plant. If they are determinate they just need a pot and maybe a stake. 2mo
thebacklistbook @jessinikkip personally I recommend getting a fruit and veggies blend for soil. And a shaker of fruit and veggie feed. Helps improve yield. 2mo
jessinikkip Thanks! I will give them a try then 👍🏾 2mo

Well today's a little more high octane than I would have cared for. My sister has been in the process of extracting herself from a toxic roommate. She had to call for a police escort to pick up her own cats because the roommate didn't hand them over. Hopefully we will never have to deal with them again.

Not much call for Valentine's cards around these parts, and I didn't do any swaps. Soulmates are real I just don't think they are romantic or sexual.

I would live in Morocco, specifically Morocco with equal rights and democracy. Failing that I would stay in Canada. Self care looks like making sure I get enough sleep. 10 hours is what it takes to refresh my soul. More specifically right now I have to do rotator cuff exercises. #wondrouswednesday
