Going on an Adventure
Top secret stuff
As an over-sharer, I find it very hard not to over-share. But sometimes one must keep things a bit close to the vest. I’m setting off on a research adventure, and am going to try my best to keep it off the internet for now. Don’t you worry, it will come! But for the time being, here I am, about to embark, in my genuinely enormous hat.
What I will tell you is my book packing list: Adelle Waldman’s Help Wanted, Charles Portis’s True Grit, Nathan Hill’s Wellness (on audio, that shit is HEAVY), Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club, and In the Pleasure Groove by Duran Duran’s John Taylor.
Otherwise, I’m excited and nervous and pretty sure I packed all the wrong things, except for the books mentioned above. Someone is absolutely BLASTING Meat Loaf’s I’ll Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That) which honestly seems like a pretty good sign.
Wish me luck!
(p.s. Wow, this video holds up a thousand percent, incredible work, Meat Loaf. Also, who else watched the TV movie Meat Loaf biopic? Epic stuff.)
