Hi there and welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread! This is the part of the week where we all chat about our lives and hopes and dreams and that one stupid thing we did Tuesday and that one really cool thing that happened this morning. What’s new, what’s up? Look at my dog’s haircut:
Getting her to sit for that photo took 45 minutes. Life is a journey.
This week I’ve felt energized and excited and alive and it’s not just because it’s getting nicer out, although that helps. I’m busier than ever and leaving the house more than ever, which helps, but I’m also getting really into embracing my own inner weirdness. For me this means “getting really into making plans three weeks out just like I’ve always wanted,” “getting really into carrying brown sugar packets around because I could give a crap about an artificial sweetener in my coffee,” and displaying a collection of novelty miniature sex toys proudly on my bookshelf (only one so far but I’m really excited about it). Your opening line this week is to talk about three or five weird things that you do that make you feel absolutely awesome.
I also want to hear all about your life. What have you been up to? What good thing happened? What interesting sandwich did you eat? How are your pets? How are your flowers? Did you know that if kombucha goes through an altitude change and then sits out a little and you don’t notice or think about it and then you open it in a crowded coffee shop, you will still get looks from the waitstaff three years later (and part of it will still be on the ceiling), definitely not that that’s ever happened to me? What tarot cards did you pull this morning? Did you decide whether to send that text? What are you up to right this second? Let’s hang out in the comments!
