Whoops! I almost published this without an intro, that’s how excited I am for tonight’s dinner (it’s a stir fry with farmer’s market veggies, a beer in honor of today’s round up, and maybe some chocolate chip cookies for dessert while I work!).
Queer as in F*ck You
Lili Reinhart Talks Her New Rom-Com “Look Both Ways,” Being Taken Seriously In Hollywood, And Life After “Riverdale.” A few things here! First of all, I did not realize that Riverdale was ending? I thought it would just exist in the ether forever, even though recently someone told me that now they all have superpowers!?!? (yeah, I don’t know either). But I generally think of Lili Reinhart as the bisexual actress with the supreme comic timing in Jennifer Lopez’s iconic Hustlers. And to that point! Let’s zero in on this quote, about Reinhart’s post-Riverdale future:
“I have a very exciting LGBTQ+ period piece that is in the works. That is so exciting for me because I’ve always been in love with period pieces. I grew up being so drawn to them like Marie Antoinette, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Dangerous Liaisons. I’ve always just loved the drama of period pieces, and adding that queer element is very exciting for me. So, that’s something that’s on the horizon.”
So many people will enjoy Lili Reinhart’s Ammonite, I am sure.

– Manifesting Lili Reinhart as Julie d’Aubigny right now.
I don’t think I’ve seen anything Lili has done but I look forward to the distraction. I’ve rewatched A League of Their Own 5 times and it kinda feels like Amazon is judging me. Watch AGAIN is so accusatory.
After campaigning on the promise of total loan forgiveness, 10k (or 20k if you had a Pell grant) feels almost insulting. My loans have accrued more than that in interest and I’m not that long out of school!
Everybody has to move forward. Wiss you all the luck.
