I leave you with this very sweet Instagram video of Jay Ellis—who also plays a nice guy, Lawrence, on Issa Rae’s HBO series Insecure—going on and on about how much he loves Michaela Coel, the creator and star of Neflix’s Chewing Gum. But, like, really loves her.


This weekend, I also suggest falling in love with a TV show. Preferably one of those mentioned above, if you haven’t watched them yet, as they are both hilarious and brilliant masterpieces.

Fuck you guys. One of my cats was vomiting this week. Like bile and stuff. It took me a couple days to figure out which one because they were all acting normally. I finally figured out it was my Tiny Wots, so I took her straight to the vet. She was refusing food and water. Doctor felt a mass in her abdomen. They took blood and her kidney numbers were so off the charts we couldn’t get a precise reading. Probable kidney cancer but her kidney failure was so far progressed that there was nothing they could do for her.

I had to euthanize my baby with my husband out of town. Just me by myself. I’ve never done that. And it was so sudden and unexpected.

Poor little wots. And only 8 months after we lost our dog. Sigh.
