Currently: celebrating Basil’s 6th Birthday in Vegas with the birthday boy himself and this scrumptious person right here. Hit the story for our adventures.

Traveling with my two best friends and living the best life. Shit, I’m my own goals.

Another year has gone by with this gentleman by my side. Steadfast and noble during the depths of my lowest lows; equally during the sparkle of my highest highs. No one knows me quite as well as he does; it’s likely no one ever will.

Basil turns 6 today, which is mid-thirties in human years, and he’s grown so much since his last birthday. Seeing him bond with his brother Reggie and the constant cycle of foster animals rolling through our apartment has been incredible – he impresses me at every turn with his wisdom and kindness and vulnerability and joy.

More incredible still: watching Basil fall in love with @_hotfingas as I did. She takes a very close second only to me…and sometimes I’m not entirely sure of that, even. The two of them are thick as thieves, and I’m 100% here for it.

Happy Birthday, Papa. You are an extension of myself. An extension of my love, realized. You are my dream come true. 💗

I’m usually super late to the party with these things, plus I’ve never had Snapchat… but @_hotfingas let me play with her filters last week with some pretty stellar results. You’re welcome.

Best part? Her giggle in the background. 😍

IG, and since you asked: the only thing I’m looking forward to with all this fight nonsense is that one of those pricks is gonna lose. 🙄

Serving up Throwback Thursday Realness, direct from Ferncroft Drive in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Complete with strawberry roots (pre-Red status), a big pink shirt (UC Berkeley) and my schnauzer, Pepper. Life was/is good.

But I digress: the energy (my energy?) during and since the eclipse is completely off the rails. I can’t verbalize it much further than that, nor do I want to. No matter; you’ll see. 😘

It’s Caturday, y’all!

Back in April I took in a stray kitten named Patty Mayonnaise who gave birth to four little chipmunks in my bathroom 24h later. Patty is still with us, but her four babies – Alvin, Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor – have since been adopted (in pairs) and are thriving in their new homes.

I’m lucky enough to be connected to their new families, who have been generous with pics and photos as the little ones grow up. Patty couldn’t be more proud. ♥️

1. Eleanor (now Beans)
2. Alvin (now Rice)
3. Rice n’ Beans (with mom @hayleyellenday)
4. Brittany
5. Jeanette
6. Brittany & Jeanette
7. Brittany being delicious

It’s not easy to churn out any semblance of “normal”, on social media or otherwise, considering the state of things. Posting cat pics and food porn and gratuitous photos of my partner seems tacky, trite, ignorant even. Should I be using this energy to March? Assemble? Educate? The ease and luxury of turning a blind eye, avoiding awkward conversations, carrying on as if the massive pink elephant in the room isn’t up in flames and screaming…. well, that’s a thing of the past. I’m cool with that.

That said, I still love my girl. I still enjoy delicious, visually stunning meals. I still take endless pics of my animal companions and can only assume you’re all as obsessed as I am. Maybe this trite stuff is a tool, maybe it’s a means to gather and grieve, maybe it’s a harmless distraction, maybe it’s a call to action, maybe it’s a connection to the tiniest sliver of normalcy we have left. I’m cool with all of that, too.

Yesterday I took a mental health day with my sister @jennyveganbrown and my girl @_hotfingas at @woodstocksanctuary to recharge my batteries and radiate/absorb some good, authentic love. Don’t forget it’s still there, fam. Right there in your guts. Where it always was; where it will always be. Use it.

Take care of yourself and the ones you love. We’re all we’ve got, but if we play our cards right, that’ll be more than enough.

To quote my sister @melisseragogo: “Speak up. Smash Nazis. Raise up the voices of POC. Make sure people know where you stand. White silence is violence.”
