Saturday was Justin’s and my 10th(!) wedding anniversary. We had discussed throwing a party, having a “real” wedding, since there was nobody but the preacher at our original wedding, but J posited that instead of a party that neither of us would enjoy to the fullest, since we’re not really partygoers (or throwers), we could spend the money on getting our kitchen redone. Neither of us thought to take “before” pictures, but lemme tell you, it was a pretty easy call for me to make. Our old cabinets were gross and literally falling off the hinges, the old white enamel sink was irreparably stained, and so were the countertops. Plus, there was a very sad wallpaper border featuring baskets of fruit that we hated from the get-go.
So on top of the gorgeous new cabinets, quartz countertops and steel sink (big enough for a tiny tub), J bought me a DISHWASHER, the absence of which I did not fully appreciate until I had to hand-scrub the dishes from a seven-person Thanksgiving dinner. I know it’s a very privileged thing to want and have, but I am super excited about being able to sanitize baby bottles and stuff.
I thought I’d share our living room, too, which is looking really nice after a year of putzing and using busted folding side-tables to put our lamps on. It still needs a rug and something to go in the naked corner, like a big paper lamp. But it’s coming together. I like that I can finally put out some of my books.
Next up is the baby’s room. That’s gonna be fun. :) I have a massive collection of children’s books, and I can’t wait to read them to my future Adventure Boy.
Ten years is such a grand number, but it sort of skated happily by in the face of much grander things on deck. I just feel very lucky to have met Justin. He’s still my best friend, still makes me roll my eyes and groan at lame jokes, he still goes on adventures with me, still makes me go, God damn, that man is handsome. Still wants to play board games with me, still tells me I’m beautiful, still worries about me, still cooks for me and together with me. Still gets excited about showing me something new. He’s still the only one I want. Love of my life.
So apparently the Kardashian clan were texting during the VMA Ferguson/Michael Brown tribute. It appeared that Kim, Kylie, and Kendall Kardashian talked amongst themselves, texted, and looked generally bored while presenter Common asked the audience to take a moment of silence for Mike Brown.
You would think a woman that is married to Kanye West, a black man who is immensely vocal about racism and police brutality, would at least respect the life of a black boy who was murdered by the police.
But all you bitches idolize these no talent hoes ☕️🐸
I know Donda rolling over in her grave!
So here’s the thing with the Kardashians. Just because these girls are friends with black people does not mean they could give a shit if one of our own was killed.
They are leeches. Remember that until Kim got with Kanye, Jaden and Willow were their black friends.
Now all of a sudden they’re besties with Chris Brown etc.
They present as white so they don’t have to experience racism. In a recent episode of the Kardashians Kim got called a nigger lover and felt that she needed to talk about her experience of racism and stand up against it on a publicity tip.
My thing is this Kanye comes from black panthers… He is a strong black man who is vocal about blackness. I don’t know how he can turn a blind eye to the blatant disrespect to the black community.
I don’t know man.
I was so disappointed when Kanye pulled Kim out of his ass as his beloved
I REALLY though he was going to show the world who the next Angela Davis was, fareal fareal
I was NOT surprised when Kanye did all that. He abused his other girlfriends (who were WOC) and talks about Kim as if she’s an object. He’s an ass and spends his time now screaming about how people are stupid for not loving his “art”. That Kanye you knew is long gone and this white loving jerk is all that is left. Leave him to the dogs and move on with life.
