Hello, champagne flutes and celery stalks! Welcome to the Friday Open Thread, in which we laugh, cry, and sing each week to escape from the realities of the cold world. JK! It’s where we say silly stuff and post pictures of our pets. Here, me first!
This week, I’m more excited than ever to be gathering here with you all today because this week, we get to talk about brunch. Tomorrow and Sunday, a bunch of y’all are headed to Autostraddle meet-ups in your cities (if you’re not, you should be, and click here to see if you can), which is so awesome! I’ve been to an Autostraddle Summer Brunch twice now, and I’m excited for Sunday to get to go one more time. How can you not love a massive gathering of people who totally get you where there is also the best meal ever of all time happening simultaneously? It’s literally impossible to turn that into a bad situation, if you ask me. But really, don’t.
So that gets me to the meat – or vegetarian sausage – of what we’re gonna talk about today. I wanna know everything about your brunch plans: Are you going to a meet-up for the first time? What are you wearing to brunch? Do you have a regular or standing brunch order, like moi? What’s your favorite brunch memory? Have you ever been to a brunch at all? Do you even enjoy the waking hours of the weekend?
Anything and everything about brunch is going right here. And come back all weekend to regale me with stories of how it went, duh. (Or you could just talk to me about life, meaning how your life is going. I really like that, too.)

2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix!
