Hello genderfriends and ladlespoons (yup, totally stole it from Cameron, who is a genius)! It is Friday! Congrats to those who have Monday-Friday jobs and made it through the week. To everyone who has to work this weekend, hopefully your job is fun! But no matter what you’re up to this weekend, it’s time for the Friday Open Thread. The post where you post your thingz and probably a bunch of people respond to those thingz with more thingz and we have a bit ole chat with each other.
Let’s seeee, what did I do this week? Nothing quite as exciting as the last time I did an open thread (we have not managed to get engaged a second time or anything). But since all of us last chatted to each other, Abby and I confirmed that we are indeed moving back into New York City! See, she got into Columbia Law and I got into The New School — have I mentioned that already? I totally have, sorry. I’m so darn excited about starting but also really nervous. Also I hate moving. And I hate moving in New York City especially because I don’t want to drive a truck in New York City (if you know of any “man with a van” type services in the queer community that’ll do a Jersey-NYC move, you should go ahead and let me know). And we’re doing all that in a about month! Ahhhhh!
And on top of that, we totally adopted a kitten.
And I’m covering this conference this weekend.
And we’re driving down to see my parents in South Carolina.
And also we’re cat sitting my brother’s cat for the summer but also we adopted a kitten (see above) and now we’re drastically outnumbered by cats.
We feel insane, clearly.
And holy crap, we’re both going back to school!
But I’m not here to talk about any of that, really. Y’all just need to know it because it illustrates what a gosh darn perfect human my fiancée is, going through all this amazing crazy with me. I wouldn’t be able to do all these things with this much clarity and mental health if it weren’t for her complete wonderfulness. I am so damn lucky it hurts. Life is just so good right now.
So I’m combining those feelings for both my partner and our relationship with my penchant for gif open threads. Yeah, let’s also chat like we normally do on Fridays. But also lets get a little silly. Queermos, give me the gif that best describes your relationship status! And remember, that can mean “single” or “ballin’ rn” or “happily surrounded by friends” or “u-hauling” or “it’s v. v. v. v. complicated” or “engayged” or “fuck relationships” or any number of things, so get creative.
Here, I’ll start:
Ugh, I know, I’m the worst.
How To Post a Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo! This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL,” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code:
If you need to upload the photo you love from your computer, try using imgur. You cannot use the imgur link, though. You still have to right click and copy the image URL when you’re on the image page. The link you use should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or something like that.
Be sure that your URL is complete and includes the http:// part, and that the quotes are straight up and down quotes rather than curly quotes. If your image didn’t post, it’s ’cause you did the HTML wrong. We will fix it for you as soon as we can, so don’t post it again!
If you’d like a bit more HTML knowledge or a more in-depth explanation, hit up this here Queer Your Tech on how to embed photos (gifs included).
