Well, the time has come that I knew would inevitably happen. My internet addiction has driven me crazy and it’s time for a detox. I am going to attempt to take a break from both Facebook and WordPress. This will be extremely difficult, as my phone is permanently glued to my hands and I will probably have to use a chainsaw to detach it.
During my vacation, I will hopefully spend some time at a local park where there is a lovely stream with ducks. Ducks are so cute, and fun to watch, and they have life totally figured out. They just float along wherever the stream takes them, finding food along their way, and sometimes stopping to sun themselves on a rock. They don’t give a shit about the stupid crap that’s happening on the Internet. I need to be more like those ducks.
While I’m gone, I’m leaving our lovely friend Miep in charge. I have given her “Editor” level administrative power on my blog so that she can moderate comments. While Miep is in charge she has full discretion in regards to what comments to allow or ban, so if you want to post here, don’t piss her off! And thank you very much Miep, I feel much better taking a vacation knowing that someone is around to step in if anything weird happens around here.
I am not sure how long my vacation will be. I no longer have any idea what it feels like to be away from the Internet so I’m not sure how long I will even be able to stand not being here. Hopefully a few days? And hopefully long enough to remember what it feels like to not care about petty arguments and stupid drama that happens on social media.
When I get back I will be finally posting the Manifesto of the Gender Rebels which has been on hiatus for quite some time. Also, I will be reviewing the film Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, which arrived in the mail today!
If anyone sees me sneaking onto social media when I’m supposed to be taking a break, please do me a favor and punch me in the face.
To kick off this open thread, here are some random YouTube videos that I love.

Anything Goes rehearsal. I actually love the rehearsal more than the stage show. Because they’re not in costume, it has a different feel to it, like they’re just a bunch of regular people having a great time. And they are dazzling!
Anyway, open thread for whatever you want to discuss! Anyone can participate, and as always, no fighting!
