Hello, friends! Did you know that when you lean a Macbook Air up against an ottoman, it disappears completely from above? I spent so long looking for my laptop today. So long! Is it possible that this computer is actually too thin?
Anyway. I am so grateful for your existence, today and every day! Let’s hang out. How was your week, bbs?
This week on Autostraddle, Natalie gave us a perfect breakdown of the Democratic Candidate LGBTQ Forum, which was moderated by none other than Angelica Ross!
Have you been catching our gorgeous Bi+ Week content? Bisexual writers on the team talked about what they’d like the future to look like; Lisa wrote the definitive list of bisexual characters on Bob’s Burgers; Casey spoke to bi people about the challenges of joys of dating; someone tried to flirt in Foolish Child; and more!
Janis reviewed Hustlers and wrote about what it got right, and also what it can’t change, for sex workers.
Raid laid out how to not fuck up a three-way relationship.
Ari’s got your apple-stuffed challah for Rosh Hashana.
And then there were your comments!

I’m waiting for spreadsheet puns from Chandra – this seems like a a field in which she should excel.
She’s the domimatrix of spreadsheet puns?
You’ll never win a row with her, I’m column it right now. She’ll pivot you right onto the table, then put you in the cell where you belong.
Never mind spreadsheets, wait til you see my hardware

Shower time, is it cataracts or are the glasses still on?
