tevere: Jihae, solemn with hint of smile (Default)
It being a miserably rainy day, I spent the afternoon curled up with cups of tea, Smitten Kitchen's rhubarb snacking cake (less attractive without the streusel layer, but indeed still addictively snackworthy), and Zen Cho's new book, The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo. Which I did think was well done and likeable, but unfortunately contained a storyline I've apparently just realised is one of my personal squicks: [spoiler redacted]. ) I guess everyone has their own set of topics that they can't really enjoy in romcom soft-focus (you know: for some people it's hooker-fic, for others it's alien sex pollen dubcon, the list goes on), so it's definitely a "it's not you, it's me" kind of thing.

Pondering the (to me) unromantic topic of [spoiler redacted] reminded me of an... odd... experience I had the other night. Which I now realise I can't talk about without putting the whole thing under the spoiler cone of silence, so I suppose all I can say out here is: contains discussion of bodies and excretory functions. )
