Yayyayayay! It’s finally Friday, which means it is time for the Friday Open Thread! Your hair looks so good today. How has your week been? My week has been bananas! I am glad it is finally the weekend and I don’t have to wake up at 5:30am for two days (just kidding I’m jinxing myself to be wide awake at 6am by saying that).
This week, I seemed to have a lot going on. Well, you know what they say: pics or it didn’t happen. Wait, did everyone stop saying that like three years ago? Forgive me. I am still linguistically stuck in like 2004.
Last weekend I went to Pride! It was magical, as being around a ton of queers and allies always is. There was a petting zoo there, too! My best friend (the best straight ally and the best honorary Straddler, hi Stephie!) and I thought it’d be a good idea to go pet the animals.
So that’s how that ended up going after all. Turns out I’m freaked out by miniature animals. Unpredictable jerks!
I went to IKEA with my friend, then I incorrectly prioritized a froyo cone over holding up a 50 pound box.
My friend set the box down on a railing, and then the box slid off the railing, and then the box hit my leg and now I have a bruise the size of my entire hand. I’ve been the whiniest of whiners about this shit.
My girlfriend and I also bought a couch! Off of Craigslist. Not IKEA. IKEA couches are expensive, aren’t they?
If you’re thinking that looks real perilous strapped into the back of my parent’s SUV, then you are correct. But no one died! Not even a couch! No one even cried. That’s really rare for the combination of furniture moving and me.
The weather has been freaking me out lately, though. We had a terrible hail storm the other day and it killed my basil and brussel sprouts.
There’s also been a ton of tornadoes through the Midwest. Stay safe! Bribe someone with a basement. I recommend alcohol and sweets for bribery, personally.
Are you watching the World Cup this weekend? I made the mistake of trying to sneakily watch it on my computer at work yesterday and ended up yelling when Germany scored, right in front of of a client.
But now it’s even more exciting because this time, if our team loses, they’re out! Of course I’m Team USA up in here, but my gut feeling says Brazil. Anyone but Germany, amirite? (wait wait German fans don’t hate me your team is really good I’m just jealous.)
Tonight, I’m going to a fancy dress party for my friend’s birthday! Bring on the cocktail dresses and also beers the size of my face.
Show me your pictures! I want to see what you’ve been up to! And what you’ll be up to this weekend! Best picture wins all of my love and devotion.
How To Post a Photo In The Comments:
