@Elitist and Dull you said it, Boomhauer.
HOW VERY DARE YOU.
Oh, the ending. How perfect.
@cuminafterall Oh gosh, those photos are amazing. And I just finished reading Alice Munro's "The Albanian Virgin" this morning, too! Talk about timing.
@testingwithfire all I know is that I will be sorely disappointed if there's not some Theodora/Eleanor fic floating around the internet. I have not looked, but I'm sure it's out there. RIGHT?)
@redridinghoodrat oh god, the HAND HOLDING. That freaked me out so bad.
what if I'm so busy holding a live puppy on my belly that I CAN'T gently vomit? How will I ever cure my fever? :(
(...though honestly, I'd rather a life feverishly covered in puppies than one with no puppies at all.)
I love you for using a picture of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef. <3
The basic problem with olives is that the ones from Spain are cheaper...
No, the basic problem is that olives are HORRIBLE. Olive oil can stay, though. and olive trees.
(my mother keeps telling me that my taste will change and I'll come to love them eventually, but I've been 27 years an olive hater. don't think that will change anytime soon.)
this is beautiful and really, really evocative.
