On OK, Cupid?

Love this! And bay leaves are a boon to humanity, so perhaps that one did work out in the long run.

Congrats on your ed-in-chief spot! And congrats to Jia on the novel! My week was not even in the same galaxy of productive, but c'est la vie and at least it's finished.

Oh and for once I have a sportssportssports thing to say which is that I'm loooooving soccer (cause I gave up football watching out of concern about concussions, injuries, etc. and have been dying for something fun and tactical to watch).

On A Character Study of the Trainwreck

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Totally agreed. It's like a dude where's my car counterpoint: ladies, not born responsible beings who love to pick up other peoples socks, but perhaps also disorganized pothead/boozers. It's not glowingly positive, but hell I definitely had a hot mess patch and it's fun to see that portrayed as not the very end of the world. There's also a bit of escapism, too. Like man, I haven't gotten wasted and crashed a wedding (or any other event) but it's a tiny bit tempting to imagine being that unrestrained and irresponsible. Kristen Wiig. Living the life (so that we don't have to).

On Hillary Clinton, Do Not Feel Guilty About Your Pleasures

I'm all for tautology: maybe we could just call the pleasurable pleasures and be done.

@Onymous I think the transition this year was really brutal. At first all the moisture was like a gift: some beautiful t-storms, and then relative cool. And then, ugggghhhh nooo. Mother nature giveth and mother nature taketh away.

More power to you cranking it out in an un-air-conditioned space. That's officially hardcore.

@PennyCentury June Gloom! That is the name for what I am feeling, for sure. I love the galactic rabbit because it stares into my soul and gives me a little shake, but it's so damn sweet even when breaking some bad news.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I was hoping there'd be 5 things. Mine are:

1. Tex-Mex
2. Swimming
3. Friiiiiiiiiday
4. Cucumbers
5. Strawberries

Ta-da! Congrats on the dresses. I just got a navy blue one that is rocking my world (haha, shoulda put it on the list).

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Naww, the only way out is through now. Must acclimate myself to the change by swimming a lot and consuming adequate amounts of vinho verde. It's the only way.

Thanks so much for posting those 'scopes. Mine is still kicking around in my head, especially this part: "Something in you longs to feel a part of a greater community and it is in your best interest to reach out. In the act of speaking up when those around you are treated unjustly, you garner a greater understanding of yourself and your beliefs."

It's been a tough transition into summer (90s already and here to stayyy) so it's nice to have some aspirational tasks to distract myself from the heat, etc. Not that conflict is my strong suit, but hey gotta start somewhere. :)

On June Horoscopes from Galactic Rabbit

Are those bunnies geminis? I would not be averse to seeing the bunny-embodiment of every sign, but especially libra. K, thx. :)
