In Friend-Love.

After professing my love for these amazing girls earlier in the week, quite a few people emailed me a link to a comic by Yumi Sakugawa called "I Think I Am In Friend-Love With You." It spans six pages in its entirety; I've pasted the first three below.

I'd say Yumi's captured friend-love - a very, very real thing - pretty darn accurately. Click here to see the rest, and have a wonderful weekend! (Oh, and the next time you hear from me I'll be in LA - if any of you West Coasters have any foodie recommendations for me while I'm there, I'd love to know!)

Hi Shoko. You find such great stuff on the Internet. I love this particular strip and the artist's work in general. Very inspiring.

Bekka said...

Ah SHO! I love this.

Lisa said...

Aw, this is so cute and really describes it perfectly. I've been in friend-love with you for a while now - ha! :) Have a great time with your family!

Heather said...

Love it! That captures the sentiment so well--thanks, Shoko, for sharing! I couldn't help but smile while reading it!

So cute, makes me smile! Well, in LA you should go to Chego on the westside and Elf on the east side.

I immediately forwarded this to all my friend-loves...just a perfect capture of those emotions :)

I'm in Long Beach, but my fav LA place lately has been Colori Kitchen. Fantastic Italian food (their carbonara is insane) and it's just a super chill, no frills sitaution. Oh, and no corkage! So you can bring whatever vino you want!

I can't help but break out into all smiles whenever I read this comic strip! Last time I was in LA, I went to Milo and Olive and had an insanely delicious garlic knot (I'm talking about a wood-fired sachet of dough from which clove after clove of garlic tumbled out into a pool of olive oil. Heaven.) and Robata-Jinya, where I had really good ramen and they made silken tofu right at the table! Not food related, but as a Patti Smith fan, you will definitely appreciate the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit at LACMA. Have a wonderful wonderful time at home!
