Oh hi. Hey there. What’s a nice weirdo like you doing in a place like this? Welcome to this week’s Friday Open Thread, where we get to sit back and relax and talk about how the week treated us. This is a special edition of the Friday Open Thread with a lot more cooks in the kitchen; instead of being hosted by one Autostraddle staffer, this week the open thread is being hosted by Riese, Laneia, Yvonne, Alex, Rachel and Grace, who are all in the same damn place for their annual planning retreat and summit. And now you’re here too! WE ARE SO EXCITED.
We’ve been here for three full days now and we’ve done so many things; we ate tacos and made a lot of lists of things and watched Jurassic Park and solidified Important Plans and read Contributing Editor applications! Laneia made margaritas for everyone! Riese made toast for everyone! Rachel made it to the A-List on Kim K: Hollywood! Yvonne watched Pretty Little Liars! We found a giant bug and made Grace take a picture of it! There’s so much in the future! You don’t even know! Are you ready? You’re not ready.
So that’s what we’ve been up to. What about you? What’s your deal? What was the most surprising thing that happened to you this week? Who did you have more of a crush on when you first watched Jurassic Park, Laura Dern or Ariana Richards (who played the younger girl)? What are your ideal taco fillings? What about tortilla preferences? If you found a giant bug, would you make Grace take a picture of it, make Grace take it outside, or make Grace kill it?
