Randoms: Is it still #TGIF?

Does anyone even know that it is Friday? Does it even matter? Some are doing the countdown believing that in 5 more days all of this will be over as the national plan states it will be be.

I respectfully disagree.

So when you woke up this morning were you thinking: “Oh Thank God It’s Friday!” I can’t wait for the weekend!? I think that is one of the crazy parts of all of this – there are so many – but this is one of the small ones. Nothing is normal. I am still doing my usual Friday work, but does it really matter?

I called so many people in the early days of this and (laugh) no one has returned my phone calls to let me know that they are okay. So if anyone is listening…I hope you and your’s are safe, healthy, and not going crazy. Hugs.

Now on to helpful shit…well hopefully helpful.

I added at least 8 new freebie/giveaway links to the “Freebies, Giveaways, and Sales” page.

Web-series

Bella Media Channel promotes Queer positivity and we could all use some positive energy about now. I am saying that, but today’s story is about how Netflix is cancelling Lost Girl on April 1st. That is so messed up. I love Bo. I love Bo and Kenzie. Bo was the first pansexual I saw I television who leaned more towards the ladies – just like me. It was awesome. Plus hello she kicks ass…laugh.

Need some web-series to binge? I have a list (laugh), Bingeables.

Books

Feeling stressed? Orgasms help me (laugh). They help some of my friends too! I’m not the only one. So I compiled a list of BDSM reads to hopefully help you out if you are looking for something a little more out of the box. (laugh).
