my kid introduced me to powderpaint, calling it "the music of my people." 😀
_you deserve each other_ gets worse and worse. the heroine narrator is ghastly, constantly gaslighting the hero and refusing to consider his overtures towards reconciliation as anything but evil. I'm not sure what horrible things he's supposed to have done to make the title true; voted Republican, maybe.
my mom always find the wackiest dance videos...

I'm reading _Slippery Creatures_ by K.J. Charles -- post WWI, a young bookseller gets involved in a Plot. Lovely writing, as usual.
Also _Spin the Dawn_, YA set in a mythological Asian country, a girl disguised as her brother is trying to win the post of Imperial Tailor.
What's everyone else reading?

my entire family is sunk in depression and anxiety. we'd hoped to rent an RV so we could get away but there are none to be had. being stuck here with terrible news coming at us all the time is ghastly. I'm bursting into tears all the time.
@herhandsmyhands Have you seen the new "Twilight Zone?" The episode "A Small Town" is somewhat relevant to your interests. 🙂
Read _Go to Sleep I Miss You_ by Lucy Knisley and immediately had to buy it for my sister. Another example of the power of libraries.
I thought it was really funny that she had my time travel fantasy, but in a different direction. She dreams of leaving her baby with her earlier self; I desperately want to go back in time and see my baby again (while giving my younger self a break.)
Just finished rereading _Murder on the Orient Express_. Dang, what a clever book. And unexpectedly sad, too.
I'm not surprised it's been dramatized more than her other books -- there's so much period detail, and such juicy parts. It's fascinating how time specific so much of it is. Monogrammed handkerchiefs, hat boxes, pipe cleaners - a clue that indicates a man, then but would these days indicated a 6 year old. ;-)
#DailyGratitude Got blood tests for me and my daughter done, finally. I was really anxious but they seemed to be taking all possible precautions.
#DailyGratitude Got to see my mom. 😍
