FRRRRRRRRRRRumidydumday! I (finally) watched the Friends Reunion special last night and I LOVED IT. LOOOOOOOOVED IT. l.o.v.e.d.i.t. It was just lovely. I watched it over at my friends’ Seth and Ashlee’s house because they have HBO Max and we don’t. It’s like that friend in the late ’80s who had MTV and your parents didn’t […]

FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRahduh! Have you ever stripped your laundry? STRIPPED your laundry. That is what I typed just now. Have you ever stripped your laundry? It’s very different from just doing laundry.

FRRRRRRRRRRoodyoodyoody! I’ve come to know something about myself lately. And I can’t decide if it’s attitude or age or the general handout of life drama. You tell me.
