Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 19 (Welcome to the Menopausedome)

When I was 14, this album was released: Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Welcome to the Pleasuredome. It was revolutionary given that they were openly gay in 1984. The word "period" wasn't even permitted on television until a year later, in a Playtex commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOHCtQfFn7E I don't recall it being groundbreaking, but that could be because I… Continue reading Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 19 (Welcome to the Menopausedome)

Hummingbird

I thought this tied in well with Monday's post.  In full disclosure, I edited the ending because originally I said we were getting a hummingbird tattoo.
