It’s been A WEEK, but here we all are, together, ready to bring it in and talk it out.
These are our resolutions. What are yours?
I want to know everything about your holigay celebrations and your day-to-day life and I want to know it now and I ideally want you to wrap it up in tissue paper inside of a baby pink plastic bag and then put that bag inside of a box inside of a box inside of a box inside of a box, with each box intricately wrapped in paper, so that I can spend as much time immersed in the everlasting gift of your love as possible.
I have to convince the U.S. government that I am a asset to society! Immigration is stressful! Let’s talk about something else!
Let’s talk about happy things because honestly I can’t take any more of this shitpile year.
We’re spending Thanksgiving together as a family; you don’t have to dress up but it would be nice if you tried the mashed potatoes. Get in here!
To be honest, I am struggling with how much to reveal about the fact that I’m just now closing out what was undoubtedly the bleakest week of my life. You should probably come on down and just tell me random information about your life and be nice to each other instead!
Hear me: We love you. You are not alone. All hope is not lost. We will face this uncertain and terrifying future together. We will never stop fighting. We will never give up. You are our family and we will never give up.
Let’s be with each other on this most harrowing of days to follow updates as they come in and support each other as we drag ourselves across the finish line of this election cycle.
Omg yay it’s Halloween and also I got married what are you up to GET IN HERE
I just wanna know your life and lift you up. Is that cheesy? Oh well! I’m here, I’m queer, I’m living my truths, and I think you’re the gosh darn best. So hit me with your best shot, nasty folx. I’m here to affirm you endlessly and Make Your Day Great Again.
Hello! I’m super excited to see your face today because I’m home with Baby T. Rex and don’t remember what it’s like to socialize with a grown-up human. Come chill on the sofa with me and tell me what’s up in the world outside my living room!
Hey you yes you, are you new here? Welcome! Get in here and let’s all hang out!
Come gather round the virtual campfire kindled by my deep and unassuming love for you and tell me everything!
I am here this week to suggest a totally weirdo spin on this virtual sleepover: Let’s be happy campers! Come on down and join the positivity party, guys. I really need you to indulge me in this right now.
Everything’s fine but for a moment it was almost not! Life is a highway!! Join me inside for a story about home infestation. (Plus my dog in a wig!)
Are you sitting in a pool of your own sweat because even though it’s September and you willed it to finally, please, for the love of everything, to just be Autumn already, it’s still averaging 90º every day? Me too! Let’s talk about it in this week’s open thread!
Wishing and hoping and thinking and praying and planning and dreaming? Doing some fall cleaning? Excited for the long weekend? Get in here and let’s hang out!
Please spill all of the piping hot tea you’ve gotta spill. Please feel free to open the lid on the salt shaker and just let it loose. I want the hot goss, honestly. Just get in here and TELL ME YOUR LIFE.
I, Carmen Rios, do solemnly swear to stop shopping. Maybe. But only if you come on down and tell me about your life to distract me from the big, bad world of nice, neat, shiny things!
