Hello! Welcome back to No Filter, the column where I take you around the virtual halls of queer celebrity Instagram. This week everyone is still socially distant and finally giving us what we want: pet content.
You know that moment in New Girl when Jess has her period and goes on a job interview and then she sees a photo of a puppy in a cup and can’t stop crying? That is me right now.
BUT HONESTLY LOOK AT THEM
PUPPY! IN! A! CUP!
More dogs, and being responsible outside!
Looooook at those eyes!!!
Socially distant!! Because of cats and dogs! It’s a funny joke!
In non dog news, Hayley Kiyoko is dancing.

BLONDES HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS EVERYONE ELSE DURING A PANDEMIC. Should this be my permanent look? Also, I’ve been going through such a range of emotion. Every day is a different shade. I fluctuate between focusing on writing to grieving for the dead. I go between cooking with joy to dreading 3 months from now. Our dear friend told us today is a day of heavy astrology. It makes sense. Because today feels heavy. It’s grey in Toronto where I wake up each morning. It’s cold and grey. Even though Torontonians have started emerging on their balconies around 6pm each night and cheering and clapping and banging pots and pans as if the Maple Leafs just won the Stanley Cup. I also feel busier than ever. Like it took two weeks but suddenly everyone is spinning faster than ever. And adapting to the new normal. This may last until August. Is how I’m framing my expectations. I will know someone close to me who will pass. I will come out of this having written several new projects. One might be a cook book. These are just truths. There’s no point in pretending or hiding from them. I am a Pisces. I am sometimes excruciatingly sentimental. Just ask my LA roommate @chucktux — but we also need to be excruciatingly practical. We must be many things at once. And all things for ourselves. And prepare for the worst and manifest the best and go day by day and practice self care and continue to cultivate ritual and dig into the earth and dig up the earth and plant seeds for tomorrow and harvest everything today and stretch and grow and rest and sleep and love. Always love. Some folx have been dealing with this kind of struggle or emotion their whole lives. I think we should all remember that. Today I’m going to drive hard into this week. I have a lot to do. I will fry eggs and drink my @drinkmudwtr and loads of hot water and ingest loads of garlic, turmeric, onion and black pepper. And I’m going to jump on my trampoline and think about how lucky I am to be able to take care of myself to have a home to stay in, to be fortunate enough to social distance. #wigs #browngirls #tuesday #love #socialdistancing #pandemic #blondewig
And of course, we’re all thinking about going blonde.
Until next week my loves! Stay distant but connected, stay loved and treasured, because you deserve it!
