Sunday Funday Is Helping Tessa Thompson Teach Brie Larson How to Top

Good morning, happy Sunday beautiful babies! It’s unseasonably cool in Austin and I am relishing in this. I’ve cleaned my house literally from top to bottom (as in, I stood on step stools and cleaned out the AC vents with bleach) and both of my cats are being extra snuggly because I refuse to turn on the heat until the internal temperature reaches 55º (because we’re broke lol). I love it so much. We get so little good here in regards to cool weather, so this weekend has truly been a gift! I feel revived, even if I didn’t do any homework. What did you do to revive yourself this weekend?

  1. I’m happy for your unseasonably cool weekend! It’s Canadian Thanksgiving here and we’ve already had two frosts and it will probably be too cold for slutty Halloween costumes

    • My mom, in canada, literally every canadian Thanksgiving: it’s thxgiving there this weekend too, right?
      Me, in the states, for the past 8 years: late November, mum

  2. I know that the Brie Larson thing is actually just PR. But jokingly acknowledging the existence of queer women thirst is very welcome!

  3. This is a small thing, but–Chirlane McCray has been out for decades (she published an article called “I am a Lesbian” in Essence in the 1970s), and she’s talked about her sexuality and her relationship to labels publicly even more since Bill de Blasio ran for NYC Mayor. Good for her for supporting LGBTQ youth, but it’s def not a new thing.
