Hello, my beloved flowers and shrubs! Are you having a hard week? I am having a hard week. Let’s all do something in the next few days to celebrate ourselves! Even if it’s just like…turning off all the lights, lighting a candle, and whispering, “I celebrate myself.” I know it sounds silly, but you are so deliciously perfect and singularly amazing and your body and your brain deserve a little of the kindness that I know you’ve been showing to others on a regular basis! This is your homework! I love you! Go be amazing!
Also I want to re-pot a peace lily this weekend, does anyone have any tips on how not to kill it? Thanks, babes.

Riese is still doing the dirty work, breaking down the data from the Survey of Lesbian Stereotypes, and oh look! We’re hippies! I personally spent a majority of the ten years I lived in Santa Cruz wearing a purple woven grocery bag printed with an eggplant as a purse, so I am…not surprised. (People outside of Santa Cruz had a really hard time understanding my fashion choices at the time, I must say.)
Crushes: they’re real! They’re lovely and scary and delicious and awful, all in one big shiny package. Thank goodness for Vanessa, who wants to help you celebrate your feelings and manage your expectations!
And then there were your comments!
