Hi how was your weekend!? I spent mine trying super hard not to work, because I really think in order to do your best at work, you should only work at work, and then spend your off time — especially if it’s limited — being OFF. It mostly worked! I baked a loaf of oatmeal wheat bread and organized an upstairs bookshelf. I also dreamed that a beautiful brown rabbit was born under a cloche on our dining room table and I was so excited that it had chosen us to live with. Maybe if you’re feeling down today, you can think, “How would I feel if a) I had a large cloche on my dining table and b) a sizable walnut brown rabbit with implied magical abilities was born inside it one night?” And I think you’ll find that your spirits will pick right up! Really though, what is life like with a large cloche? I do not know.
You Should Go or Do or Give
+ So Killjoy Fest is this week in East Vancouver! It’s designed mostly for queer, trans, and intersex people who are Black, Indigenous, or people of color, will include a discussion about deaf people of color, and honestly seems like a fucking amazing situation. If you’re part of the audience that this fest is aimed at and you’re in East Vancouver or anywhere nearby, you should probably go!
Queer as in F*ck You
+ This week in Not Gonna Link It: “Why I support the idea of a Heterosexual Pride Day” ! Aaaaah just grab a tea and maybe a cookie and be glad you didn’t read that.
