I just went on a whole daydream today about how Only You is the most underrated rom com. Speaking of black and white outfits! Marisa Tomei is the cutest.

Ha, I will try to be more like Samantha Irby when responding to anyone questioning what I enjoy. Her "I like it, I like it a lot!" is way nicer than my admittedly defensive "Why are you ridiculing what I like? The world would be boring and impossible if we all enjoyed the same things."

However, I have yet to find anyone that did not enjoy the movie "Meet The Parents" :)

Samantha Irby is my sleep twin! I also like to sleep in subzero conditions (according to my family) with fans running at warp speed while wearing long sleeves and hanging my back to rear outside of the blankets. I feel seen.

When there's bread on the table, you only want 4 to 6 people. I mean, yeah! I love it when comedians capture the cold, hard truths.

Something that always makes me laugh, and my daughter will ask to listen to at least once a fortnight...a great episode on The Moth called No Ordinary Love by David Crabb about a trip to Russian Baths. This guy captures character and place in a snap and you are there in the East Village as the angry old lady at the front counter is ramming carrots into a juicer.

I am from Australia and when I visit my cousin in NJ next year, this is top of my list of place to go in NYC. I will be terrified but it will be a pilgrimage!

Just discovered Samantha Irby is my spirit sister; enormous noggins, unapologetic likes, always cooking smitten kitchen recipes, freezing cold bedroom with multiple fans and a white noise machine. The only thing I'm missing is the nightgown and now I need to try it out.
