Praise Be: I Went An Entire Long Weekend Without Buying New Plants, And Other Affirmations
|Amy Widdowson||Jul 8, 2019|
Darlings! I hope you’re well and emotionally prepared to venture back into the world of the working. I spent much of my long weekend at home sleeping off a nasty cold, which meant I was able to bingewatch the first season of Absentia, as well as (most) of the latest season of Stranger Things. So while there were moments I felt like a sad hermit, tucked away behind blackout curtains whilst hissing at the sunlight, I’m on the mend and ready to yell about how many “squelching” noises there are in current television. Get off my lawn.
Pro-tip from someone who’s never consumed either: don’t mix cocaine and poisonous pufferfish, mmmmkay?
Also in Florida: a public school principal explained that Holocaust education activities were “not forced upon individuals” because “Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened… not all of our parents have the same beliefs.” (A note: the longer story related to this initial emailed comment is a very messy one, but the fact that an educator is treating Holocaust education like a “both sides” issue… woof.)
And finally, if you need a big soul hug, San Francisco’s own Muttville Senior Dog Rescue hosts a “Cuddle Club” wherein senior citizens, you guessed it, cuddle up with senior dogsavailable for adoption. The story kicks off with the tale of 76-year-old Vince and his 14-year-old Maltese mix Monte. I. Am. SOBBING! And now I’m perusing all of the lovely doggies available from Muttville and doing my best not to adopt every last one of them.
Just kidding, here’s one more link now that we’ve gone down that dachshund hole: I found the internet's good place. It's dogs. TRUTH!
Be kind to each other.
Yours in wagging tails,
