Y’ALL. The other half of Cookiepocket is driving to Dallas to visit me for the weekend. Like, she’s about to start driving right now! 😀 I took off work today because I started feeling bad last night, and my throat started hurting a few hours ago, but WHATEVER. We’ve been planning this for a few months and I will pretend to feel well and have a lovely time and then recover Monday night after she leaves.
We snagged tickets to see the lawyers from Making a Murderer on their tour on Sunday at the Majestic Theatre. And will basically spend the rest of the time rotating between favorite food places and talking a whole bunch. Also, there may be games.

The Buffy finale aired 13 years ago today! Which, first of all, is sort of shocking because I’m old enough to clearly remember my finale watching plans for a show that ended how long ago?! Whoa.

Television. for us and we always rushed our family through dinner and cleanup on Tuesdays to make sure we could make it to the couch in time.)
So, now’s a good time to read “10 episodes that show how Buffy The Vampire Slayer blew up genre TV” because Buffy is one of the best things to have ever happened to television. ❤

There are so many tweets similar to this one and they are fantastic. And those Lady Ghostbusters are so badass! 🙂
I don’t understand WHAT or WHY this is happening, but if you missed the GOP’s Senate Squad video, here, BEHOLD:
Have you listened to Hamilton yet? (If you’ve seen it, I sort of hate you, so don’t tell me.) Because:
The soundtrack of my life lately is Hamilton or me making up songs about my day to the tune of songs from Hamilton. Thanks, @Lin_Manuel!—
