Hi hello and welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread! Your weekly hangout and campfire and GIF-fest and bitchfest and excuse to obsessively reload something that isn’t the news. What’s up, what’s new, what’s going on with you? Here, have some your-specific-food-allergies-or-intolerances-free hot chocolate on the house:
Hi, how are you? How’s it going over there? I’ve noticed a mood shift within people I see regularly; a little less conversation a little more everyday action, sure, but also a little less willingness to succumb to just feeling exhausted and bad all the time, and a little more fighting to be personally happy in order to be able to keep fighting. In other words, a little less my dog after I took her toy dinosaur away:
And a little more my dog in a Valentine’s bandana and birthday hat:
I guess this is as good a place as any to talk about Valentine’s Day. Are you doing anything for it? Sending queer cards or sex toys to yourself or to anyone else? Going out? Dying alone? (Everyone dies alone.) Having a date with your dog, cat, lizard, ghost, or other non-human best friends? Having a date with a romantic partner or activity partner or five?
Plus, what else is new with you? Like KaeLyn said last week, we can talk about politics anywhere right now, and you’re welcome to do that here among friends, but what I really want to know is what your life is like right now. How’s work? How’s school? How are you coping with the weather, whatever it’s like where you are? What’s your hair like right now? What are you snacking on? Reading? Watching? Dreaming? Let’s hang out!
