Sunday Funday Is Waking Up to Hayley Kiyoko

Good morning! My son is standing over me breathing with his little mouth open so I can see his cutie pie teeth and is begging me to feed him. He’s fine. There’s still food in the bowl! The same food I will put in there once I finish writing this, in fact! He is a baby, and I love him, but my word the boy loves to scream. He’s lucky he’s so cute and cuddle-able and kissable. Cats, baby!

Okay, we have reached peak, “I will eat your not yet corpse unless you feed me right meow” levels of strife in the house, so I bid you adieu here. I hope you have a sweet week, get into some community justice work for our good brother Martin, love on a cute human and/or animal, and love on yourself. You deserve it, and I currently have a claw in my arm! Goodbye! I love you!

  1. You know, ONE DAY there may be a time when ads featuring adorable gaybies being loved by their families don’t send me from feeling perfectly calm to blinking away tears in, what, 38 seconds.

    But this is not that day.

  2. !! So stoked about the shoutout to Thorgy & the Thorchestra!! She and Dan are doing incredible work to bring classical music to a diverse audience in my region, other orchestras should absolutely take note…
    Just got the cancellation email about Hayley’s tour last night. I had tickets to see her in March. And a bag full of bras I was gonna throw at her
