Last night’s episode RuPaul’s Drag Race, the penultimate episode of the VH1 drag competition’s 13th season that served as a mostly socially distanced reunion special, broke with reality TV tradition in a lot of key ways. Unlike your typical reunion special, in which season-long fights are usually dredged up for one final burst of ratings gold, last night’s Drag Race chose instead to highlight its competitors’ talents, giving each of them a few minutes to perform a number of their choosing—a wise change of pace, considering these queens haven’t been able to tour and make money like they normally would on account of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic!

The standout of the night was Tamisha Iman, the Atlanta legend and three-time national pageant title winner who sashayed away from the competition a little too early for some people’s (i.e., my) liking. Iman blessed us with a music video for DJ Mitch Ferrino’s “Arrogant,” which features quotes from the episode of Untucked where she tells New York’s Kandy Muse that she’s being arrogant. I can’t track down the music video itself at the moment—all I can find is Ferrino’s mix, which he uploaded to YouTube in February—but enjoy! And please dropped Iman’s video in the comments if you manage to find it.

Yesterday I paid off my student loans, 5 years ahead of schedule. I’ve been making triple payments for the last 16 months.

Today I got my first shot (Moderna).

It was a great week for making progress.
