Hello! Are you panicking? It’s a very real reaction, and I’m here to offer you love and comfort and joy as you deal with this trying time in our global experience.

To start off our moments of joy, here’s a cute picture of my cat, Alexei, standing by flowers that he did not eat! Such a good boy!

Okay homos and homies, remember to practice your deep breaths. Also, if you, like me, panic every time you cough, remember this helpful poem, “cough wet, pussy wet, corona ain’t got me yet.” It’s gonna be okay. Check in on your neighbors, your friends who live alone, your poor homies, and your elderly friends and (chosen) family. Make some art, watch some TV, let people know you love them, and tell them you need to be told the same thing. “We’re all in this together,” like the hit Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical reminds us. I love you!! Take care of each other! ❤️❤️❤️

    Finally read the Wolf Girl thing am disappointed by the lack of Ginger Snaps mentions but not surprised.

    Thank you for the links and the photo.

    Your cat is very cute and the flowers look pretty, too.

  3. Almost all of the men I’ve ever been attracted to have been firefighters and I’ve had crushes on every woman firefighter I know…so I guess I’m mostly a lesbian but bi for firefighters

    Hope everyone is doing well during this time while social distancing!
