Oh what a year it’s been! Surviving Coronapocalypse!

17 Mar

It’s been a year, right? 2020 into 2021, Coronapocolypse. Hopefully, we are finally heading out of this with people getting vaccinated and being willing to continue with precautions for the time being (I won’t comment on people who refuse to wear their masks, who choose to support businesses who refuse to follow the rules, or those who continue to think that Covid-19 is nothing- I am sure you can probably imagine my opinion).

Howdy Lushites!

I’m sad to report to the world’s male population that I’ve officially been taken off The Market and have accepted the marriage proposal of my male suitor. Excuse me for one moment while I squee:

Yaaaaaay!

This means a couple of things: Continue reading
