Sunday Funday Balls Hard With the WNBA and 2K20

Good morning Baltimore! And Atlanta, Abuja, the polar bears in the Arctic, Dallas, not Austin, Sydney, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, New York City, Oaxaca, all of Iowa, Bogotá, and whatever family currently lives at my childhood home. And to you, if you’re not included in these groups of folks. How was your week? I came back from vacation on Tuesday and now it’s Sunday and honestly I’ve done nothing for the past five days except bake challah. Maybe your week was better? We can’t win them all, but luckily sunsets are always nice. C’est la vie! (holy bananas, I just remembered my first serious partner would say “la vie!” every time someone said “c’est la vie” and I think that’s the funniest thing in the world, so maybe laugh at that dad joke for the rest of today).

Okay, the news!

  1. Good morning Al(aina)!

    I mis-read the link as “portraits of queer flogging” which honestly tells where my mind was at this morning.

    Also, now I want challah for breakfast. C’est la vie!

  2. If not the rectifying the feeling of our invisibility or erasure from the past; then it would be the crotchless undergarments and cleavage from them stays an’ corsets thing.
