Hi family! Happy Friday Open Thread! How are you doing? This has been such a tough week for so many of us. I hope you’re all taking care of yourselves.
This past week I’ve been in Arkansas, indulging in fried food at every meal: fried peaches with ice cream, fried catfish with grits, pan fried chicken, deep fried avocado slices… It’s not the healthiest thing I’ve ever done, but I feel pretty good about my choices right now! It takes a lot of energy to fight off hopelessness. I can eat salad next week, maybe.
Speaking of which! How many of y’all will be bingeing Orange Is The New Black this week? I haven’t started yet, but I’m very excited to see more Poussey Washington. May I remind you what a mega babe Samira Wiley is?
Poussey was last seen holding hands with Soso on the beach behind Litchfield. They’re together in the trailer too, which leads me to believe Ms. Washington will finally have the tenderhearted mixed-race Asian girlfriend she deserves! And if that’s not the case, I’m still, like, right here. Appreciating that dazzling smile. Never not laughing at Poussey and Taystee’s impressions of white girls.
I’ve also been enjoying Heroes of the Storm lately. My favorite hero is Jaina, and all I want is to get her to level 10 so I can buy that pretty skin for her with my gold. I don’t know anything about the character backstory, but Jaina basically has the same powers as Elsa in Frozen, and I thoroughly appreciate that one of her battlecries is “I hate resorting to violence.” I like playing the game with my girlfriend and her cat — who, by the way, has finally warmed up to me.

So what have you all been up to? Is it okay if I hug each and every one of you? Are you going to any Pride activities this weekend? Vigils, protests, or parties? What are you going to snack on while you binge watch OITNB Season 4? What are you want to see this season? If you’ve already started, what do you think? Thanks in advance for labeling your spoilers, btw. I’m so glad you’re here with me.
