Did you spend the weekend making snickerdoodles and wrapping your last minute gifts while you listened to the Christmas Peaceful Piano playlist with Fireplace for Your Home (birchwood edition) crackling away on your TV screen? WELL I DID AND IT WAS GREAT. I also accidentally locked my darling cat Winona in my bedroom for the several hours it took to engage in these classic holiday activities, and by the time I put together the fact that she’d been missing for quite some time, she had indeed taken a #2 directly in the center of my bed on the white linen duvet cover.
The universe demands balance.

I’ve never played Kingdom Hearts but I read that article anyway, while hiding in the upstairs bathroom and pretending my kids are going to sleep like they’re supposed to be and not sing-shouting at each other in their bedroom. So thanks for that.
I’m also with you on Gabrielle Korn. She’s like that girl in high school who you know is way too cool for you but you have a mad crush on her anyway, like you really really just want to be her friend. (Or maybe that’s just me?)
I should probably leave the upstairs bathroom now and go finish wrapping my kids’ Santa gifts. Merry merry!
Hiding in the bathroom… this one’s for the parents! LOL
I do this regularly
Haha omg the upstairs bathroom is the best place to escape the kiddos for a moment or ten.
this is entirely unrelated but for christmas eve i rode my very neglected mountaim bike for 7 miles on the horse path that runs alongside the W&OD (it’s a bike path) and it was a lot of fun! except my bike is inexplicably a single speed! like it is a multispeed frame, with a single goddamn gear and then spacer rings where other gears would go. It does have a freewheel, thank god. I have no explanation except that it was a spare parts bike. we’re adding gears soon. then i’ll be a climbing demon.
more related is that my sister is moving and her landlord doesn’t know about 3 of her 4 cats so my parents are watching three of them while her current apartment is shown, and they (the cats) kind of freaked out about it, and peed on all the beds, and now they’re on cat prozac.
saying this aloud is kind of like when peanut butter is sticking your tongue to the roof of your mouth
i love u autostraddleverse; merry christmakwanzakah <3
Thank you for the Bao link
Of course there are no trainers anywhere near me but now I really want a pair of those Superfit leggings!
