Vanessa’s Team Pick:
I’m the type of person who falls in love with a sweater and then wears that same (hot pink floral print v-neck) sweater every day for two weeks. I’m the kinda gal who loved My Girl so much as a child I insisted my mom rent it for me every single Saturday night, and eventually our local Blockbuster just gave it to us because we “could’ve bought it 10 times over.” (Sorry, Mom!) I eat greek yogurt every single day for breakfast, I’m all about monogamy and I’ve been sleeping with the same teddy bear since I was 8. What I mean to say is, when I like something, I commit. When I fall in love, I fall hard. And when I find these perfect little gems in the every day treasure chest of life, I want to share that feeling of happiness and adoration with the world.
Which is why I have to talk to you about F To 7th again. Have you been watching this “homoneurotic” web series about Ingrid Jungermann and her “descent into lesbian middle age?” You really have to. Seriously, it’s written by Jungerman, the woman who brought us The Slope, the episodes are super funny in that oh god this is so awkward but I can’t look away kinda way, the cast is filled with attractive famous humans like Amy Sedaris and Ann Carr and each episode is approximately 5 minutes so you can watch it before bed without feeling guilty that you’re fucking up your sleep schedule.
The point is this show is very very good, and you should be watching. My favorite episode so far is “Straight Talk,” probably because Gaby Hoffman’s straight young mom character reminds me a bit of myself before I realized I was gay and a bit of myself as I imagine I’ll be once I have a child and while that’s probably not something to be proud of it did make me laugh a lot. Episodes 1-6 are available to watch online and a new episode is released every Monday. It’s the perfect way to start your week!
