Another fine day ruined...
Happy Friday, everybody!
Before I go any further with this blog post, I wanted to just encourage you to keep the reason for this holiday weekend in mind. If you've lost a friend or loved one due to their having made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country, we're deeply sorry for your loss and hope you're able to find some comfort as you reflect on that sacrifice this Memorial Day. If you haven't been directly impacted by the loss of someone due to war but know folks who have, please be tender and respectful toward them. Remember: you can be an anti-war progressive and still support our troops and show respect for those who have fallen and the friends and family that survive them!
Alright! Now that I've threaded that little needle, on to the much more trivial and (hopefully) entertaining stuff!
As you can see up top, Meredith thought we should do a little somethin' for tha ladies as we slide into beach and swimming pool weather around the U.S. — also known as "Ogling Season." That said, there's no reason enlightened male and/or non-binary allies (cis-gendered or otherwise) can't rock our new Another Fine Day Ruined By The Male Gaze design in solidarity. I know I plan to! As I mentioned on this week's podcast episode, I think I did a really nice job on this one and can't wait to print one up for myself...which I'll probably do tomorrow, since the staff is off tomorrow, too! They've been doing a fantastic job this month and we figured they deserved a 4-day weekend. Woo-hoo!
Speaking of the podcast, this week Meredith and I are joined by Oliver at the top (keep an ear out for the purrs in the first two minutes) and we have a wide-ranging conversation about incompetent suppliers, unreasonable customers and their unreasonable demands, amazing customers and their amazing reviews and comments on our social media posts, how feminism benefits even those that hate it, and we dissect the cheesy death-fest that is 1990 horror film Demon Wind and make fun of some reliable horror movie tropes. All in a tidy 39 minutes! Listen below!
We'll be back next week with more new designs, a fresh podcast episode, and more fun Questions of the Day over on Facebook & Instagram. Come join the discussion!
Have a great holiday weekend, and until next time...
Peace, love, and tacos,
