If It’s Alright With Y’all, I’m Gonna Build A Pillow Fort In My Living Room, Curl Up And Watch Letterkenny Until This Whole “Election” Business Moves Along. J/K, See You At A Phone Bank, My Doves.

13 days until the election - what are YOU doing to help get Biden and Harris into office? We’re hosting virtual phone banks from 10 am - 7 pm every darned day until then - join us and channel that election anxiety into action!
Darlings! It’s Wednesday! And I thought by this point in writing this I’d have some pithy observation about the current state of the world, but alas I am just glaring at my cup of coffee which is now empty and had one job it failed at, which was to give me the mental acuity to write a pithy observation about the current state of the world. Thank you for coming to the opening monologue of my 24-hour-play festival entry.
TO THE INTERNET.
I hope I can count on one of you fabulous Friends of the Missive to provide a declaration in a court of law that I never mean anything I saw in this here newsletter, because it seems POTUS got his Chief of Staff to sign a sworn declaration that Trump didn’t actually mean it when, in a tweet, he stated that he “fully authorized” the declassification of docs related to the Russia investigation. How do we know this? Because BuzzFeed News saw the tweets, and sued for declassification. My goodness, does this mean that words have consequences?
Also over on BuzzFeed, Trump may have gotten the last-minute “loan” he gave his campaign in 2016 from a third party - which is sketchy as all heck and not at alllllll surprising considering how much we know how his remarkably bad business sense.
Speaking of Trump campaign mismanagement, this Vanity Fair piece is just delicious: The Trump Campaign Reportedly Blew $1 Billion On Private Jet Rides, Trump Properties, And Don Jr.’S Sh!tty Book
UGH, I wish we could go back to a few years ago when Chris Pratt was married to the adorable Anna Faris and I knew nothing about his religious and political persuasions: Chris Pratt draws ire for not participating in ‘Avengers’ fundraiser with Kamala Harris (and we all know he is the Chris we’d vote from the Hollywood Chris squad if we we able to.)
I’ve been drowning in to-dos over the last few months, and I feel like I’m never getting a handle on everything I have to get done. Combine that with pandemic-induced inability to focus and what Tik Tok has told me is likely adult ADHD, and let’s just say I’ll try anything: Throw out your sh!tty to-do list — here’s what to do instead.
And finally, I love this Boston woman so hard: ‘And I got my Dunkies’: Boston woman voting at Fenway goes viral.
Pitter patter, my loves, let’s get at ‘er. And by ‘er, I mean voting and volunteering and wearing masks and being kind to each other pretty please.
