Tired & Appreciative, with Tea & Cereal
Also though, @leapfrog, I’ve felt exactly the same way about books yitled “The _insert professional dude_’s daughter/wife/sister/great-grand-niece”.
Ah yes, The Male Professional’s Female Relative, my least favorite book titling trend in the past decade!
And this is how we can instantly see you’re the professional here, qg, as you neatly and pithily encapsulate the titling!
i did not invent the phrase, tho, i think i read it on twitter years ago! <3 :-*
Let’s start a new series. Book 1: The Lesbrarian’s Discarded Ex-boyfriend. Book 2: The USWNT Midfielder’s Water Boy
Well this made me laugh delightedly
I LOVE THIS
I’m assuming “yitled” is not a typo, but a portmanteau of “yikes” and “titled”
@snaelle ugh yes. tried & tired.
I feel called upon to post some Gal Cando content:
One would think I‘d know how to post pictures by now..
If it helps I messed up yesterday too and felt the same way @amidola.
Appreciate the Cando attitude!
Hope you’re doing ok, considering. Can’t imagine how exhausted you must be rn. Sending love and tea/whatever your tea equivalent is 💜☕
My tea is coffee;-)
We’re not nearly as badly off as some places, but still, it’s been two months, and if there’s another wave after easing lockdown, I’m just going to sit in a corner and cry.
I’m probably going to do that anyway sometime.
Everything’s just been so f****** dramatic and heartbreakingly tragic.
Also, I really hope that we’re going to have a very necessary conversation about how feminism has failed and why it has in the last few decades.
Is it Friday Comment Awards time already ? Where have I been ???
Time to play What Day Is It, with news anchor Todd Meany!
Glad I’m in good company !
Did somebody make a list of the horniest “Xena: Warrior Princess” episodes? Yes. Yes, they did.
