Hi there, Barbies, Kens, Skippers and Scouts! How’s your week going? Do you have a sudden desire to purchase secondhand dolls and stuffed animals and style them into queer-identified characters to sell on Etsy and at camp? No? Just me?

Nora wants to give you a free haircut!

This is not a drill: the Steven Universe Soundtrack is out, and Mey wrote about it! Heart-eyes emoji for everything about this.
