hi friends !! i’m up in ohio visiting family this week. and, since half of houston currently has covid and the other half is quarantining because they might have covid, dena and i are gonna skip the events calendar this week. stay safe out there, and we’ll be back on january 2nd to kick off 2023.

tuesday is the best day of the freaking year… the winter solstice !! the days will finally start getting a little longer, and that’s a great reason to feel optimistic despite all the scary covid news this week. if you’re looking for fun stuff to do, mask up and plan to basically camp out at two headed dog and grand prize all week. they’ve got rad stuff in the works. but be careful out there, y’all !!

wow, hello. it’s literally been years, but it’s late on a sunday night and i’m here typing into a wordpress draft with a million tabs open and i must say, it feels real good to be back. nick was really feeling the need for a tool – like this here events calendar – to help him get reintegrated into society post COVID and i was happy to share this platform with him. he’s out of town for thanksgiving, doing california things with his bff marli and her family so here i am, right back where it all started back in may of 2012. that was nine years ago, the future really DOES have an ancient heart! anyway. enjoy the days off this week, and possibly the time with family – or better yet, chosen houston family. if you find yourself free and wanting to be social, you’re welcome in advance:
