new girl sex scene

Man Repeller just featured 13 haikus on sex in quarantine, which made me laugh out loud. Here’s one: “Like when the pool first / opens, swimsuit on, head-first / then once, twice a month.”

luster book

Raven Leilani’s Luster, one of the most widely anticipated books of the year, came out this week to great fanfare. The smart, witty novel follows Edie, a young Black woman working an admin job in publishing, who finds herself part of a suburban white couple’s open marriage. This summer, I’ve kept starting and stopping books, unable to find anything compelling, but once I read Leilani’s opening line — “The first time we have sex, we are both fully clothed, at our desks during working hours, bathed in blue computer light” — I knew I wouldn’t put this one back down.

Jeni's coffee ice cream

At age 41, I started drinking coffee for the first time in my life, and it’s really hitting the spot. (GUYS WHY DIDN’T ANYONE SAY ANYTHING?;) Now I’m wanting all the coffee-flavored treats, including Jeni’s Coffee With Cream and Sugar Ice Cream. Yummmmmmm.

John Derian flowers

Remember John Derian’s Provincetown house tour? I love how he plays around with scale and arranges branches tall enough to touch the low ceilings. Here’s a photo from his Instagram. So inspiring!
