Good morning, friends! I just got a notice that the 26 Catra stickers I ordered from Etsy are on the way.

  1. I hate watched season 1 of The White Lotus and swore I wouldn’t watch the next season, but, big sigh, anything for Aubrey!! 😍 Hoping she’ll have some queer scenes despite her character having a husband.

  2. One of my favourite episodes of television is season 2’s Isn’t It Romantic from the Golden Girls. It’s such a beautiful and respectful episode about a lesbian woman mourning the loss of her wife. Rose is so sweet and respectful to Jean. And of course, it contains the classic lesbian vs lebanese joke. Blanche being offended that Jean isn’t into her will never stop being funny.
