Hello everyone, it’s a “Sunday Night Social: Special Edition!” post just for you!


Whether or not you are a fan of Bernie Sanders, it may or may not be completely impossible to dislike the fact that he technically went with My So Called Life’s Rickie Vasquez (AKA actor Wilson Cruz) to a drag brunch in Los Angeles. Equally hard to hate on is the buddy-comedy franchise that should eventually ensue if there is any justice in this world.

Sanders went to visit California constituents days before the state’s primary at the legendary West Hollywood gay bar Hamburger Mary’s, and stopped for a photo op with Cruz while heading out.


But really, I’m thinking they should do a Danny DeVito/Arnold Schwarzenegger reboot of Twins. How do we feel about this?

On another completely unrelated note, this comic is my world right now. “Oh my God. She’s got everything. Even a burrito.”

Happy Sunday!

Gwyneth P. is a reincarnated chicken nugget

DYING from happiness. Also this GRAPHIC kitchen nightmare that happened earlier.


So, earlier today I was making myself a smoothie. Currently, I cannot get enough of a banana, orange, spinach (just a touch to claim “and vegetables”), mango, and OJ concoction. It is really sweet like how I like it and I have it three marvellous days in a row. Here’s what I do. I rinse my spinach off because in the UK they cellophone everything without washing it. Why???? Then I drop my peeled banana and orange in there. And get to the mango.

Here we go. This is the holy shit please somebody take over my body part. Turn back while there is still time. Now, the mangos are on the softest side of soft. I needed to get rid of them and OMG the FLASHBACKS. I was like, “I’ll eat half and put the other half in my smoothie. Yummy. life is great. The sun is shining. Obama is still in the White House. Babies are still adorbable. Hakkuna mattata.”

I cut the really sad part off and think about how not sustainable my lifestyle is. I vow to do better. Then (physically quaking from fear typing this) I cut into the in good condition side.

I notice a little black thing inside.

I look at it kind of skeptical like dafuq. What is that.

Then the motherfucker starts MOVING.

My heart exploded. Actually exploded.

I thought is was like a bunch of micro worms *DIES HORRIBLY ONCE MORE* living inside the mango like in Aliens with Signorney Weaver. But is was a spider. The legs moved first really subtle like and I was immobile with fright and so so so sad. Just one leg at a time. Then one side at once. Then the body came out. Holy Satan. I was so scared. So completely startled and I will need a cigarette for my nerves for the rest of my life.

I called both my sisters in near tears like, “I NEED MY FAMILY. THIS IS WHAT FAMILY IS FOR. THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE PEOPLE.”

Now, I feel like I’ll never be the same person again. I am a changed woman. There is so much scary fruit in my house. I thought about leaving my house altogether and starting over in Space because Earth isn’t working for me. If The Shining happens in for me personally, this will definitely be my clown flashback. *SHUDDERS. THEN DIES*

How was your Sunday?
