This week, man. This week. [sigh]
But now it's Friday, and I'm working mostly at home before I don my Favorite Shoes Ever and go out with friends, and I am seeking joy from things I like, like --
*reading the Maiden Lane historical romances of Elizabeth Hoyt, with Georgian London and aristocrats basically playing Batman and cross-class love stories, etc etc
*listening to the new Boz Scaggs album of (mostly) covers, "Fool to Care," v. bluesy and rootsy with Boz's glorious voice at the heart of the tunes; also containing a duet with Bonnie Raitt and a duet with Lucinda Williams
*watching the few Youtube clips of stylist and editor Carlyne Cerf de Dudzelle waxing rhapsodic about things she likes, under the umbrella title J'Adore -- like this episode on Leopard. She is a character.
(Cerf de Dudzelle was the fashion editor behind the iconic 1988 Vogue cover with the Lacroix embellished sweater paired with jeans.)
*watching my favorite Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes over and over on Hulu. (I am obsessed with "The Wednesday Incident." I love Captain Raymond Holt and his husband Kevin Cozner so so much. :))
And I was thinking that I might play with another story-by-short-installments for this journal. If you have a word or an image you'd like me to try to include, comment below. :)
(My first paragraph-a-day story was The Branch, lo those many years ago.)
Cheers and joy to all!
Ah, thanks for the Maiden Lane reference! I will check them out.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, m'dear!
And a lovely weekend to you! Cheers and cupcakes. :)

Thanks, pal. :) [hugs]
Cheers for your weekend.
Oh, I would delight in an installments story!
And glad your bad week is done. Enjoy your pleasures!
May it be a delicious weekend where you are! :)
Hugs and a good Saturday to you!

Have a wonderful weekend!
For a word prompt, hmmm, how about.... "Tokyo"?
Hmmm -- I think I might be able to work it in somehow!
Happy weekend! :)

[hugs]. I finished my current series reread this morning, so I'm hitting the Josephine Tey. It's been far too long.
A word? How about Emily's current obsession - "nest".
Hurrah for returning to books you love. :)
And thanks for the word, too!
Apparently a week has passed since I last looked at livejournal. I will be reading the installments in the correct order immediately.
Also, Brooklyn Nine-Nine!
I somehow missed this comment! Hugs hugs!
And oh, how I love Raymond Holt and his husband. And Terry. And Diaz and Santiago. And even Gina and Jake hanging out together. :)
I'll have to investigatte those Elizabeth Hoyt books.
I will add a caveat for the first of the Maiden Lane books: it was not my favorite, and it traded on bondage/domination misinformation in a way I didn't like very much.
Thanks. I'll bear that in mind.
