Young adult Julia is hating humdrum old Italy, with a fam that wants girls to stay in a box, till sharp-looking Romulo turns it all topsy-turvy. Lurv! But Julia’s clan is at war with Romulo’s, natch. Sorrow! What will Julia do?

Judging a book by its facing art, tho, I do with no qualms.

Post 6 months mostly off FacialBird (and an annum off Mastodon), I dip back into this forum and old addiction is roaring back... Urging to look at PDA 100x a day so I don’t miss a toot... Skipping actual books for this quick fix... O Skinnr thou art diabolical!

That bluish Sunday mood, with Monday coming on fast.

Coming back for a look at Mastodon, post a full run around Sol by this mudball.

Waiting at ophthalmologist's clinic, with good jazz on my buds to drown out TV. Wish I could hoist half of my darlin's load but sitting in that chair is a solo act. All good - cataracts will soon vanish!

(I must find a word for my matrimonial darlin' that's not as goofy as "my good half")

Show additional (Mark II) is a lipogrammatic Mastodon for all.
