So after an impromptu cocktail date with a friend, I managed to finally update my LinkedIn profile. Then, things got a little bit out of hand, because I stayed up for three goddamn hours updating it when I had better things to do (like sleep, because I needed to work on my thesis).
But here’s the silver lining: I’m awake (enough, I think) to catch today’s Daily Prompt and be one of the early submitters. And the challenge for today is to write one thing that makes you smile.
Really? Just one thing?
I thought so. So, I decided to go all Maria Von Trapp and list
my favorite things the things that make me smile, in alphabetical order.
Mr. Boyfriend (his name begins with a D)
Felines (my cat, Kenji, just got out of the hospital)
Gay Porn (yes, really)
Home (or the thought of it, which includes my family)
Internet (this is essential)
Jokes (oh this is just lazy)
Lip syncing whenever and wherever possible (yes, even at the bus stop)
Queer movement and rights
Rupaul’s Drag Race (although this season has been lukewarm so far)
Tori Amos (or maybe not)
Vintage silver jewelry and fabrics
Waking up on a Friday morning
Xena the Warrior Princess
Y is always the hardest. It doesn’t help that my name begins with a Y.
Zim (from Invader Zim)
So at one point, I thought it would be cute to attach a gif file for every letter, but it’s also 5:30 in the morning and there are just too many gay porn gifs to choose from.
