Wearing Masks

The main reason public face maskwearing is so important with Covid-19 has to do with the prevalence of asymptomatic carriers who can still spread the virus to others. This fact makes it difficult to suppress transmission in the community, but if everybody is wearing face masks, that means infected and asymptomatic people are also wearing masks, which can help reduce the amount of virus released into the environment potentially causing infections. So please mask up kids. Our friend Bethany makes these dope handprinted masks that are available at her awesome online shops Well Done Goods and Cyberoptix.

Fixing Miss Daisy

As many of you know, Daisy ran away on the fourth of July in terror of the fireworks and was missing for two days. She survived a 30′ fall from our roof and was found wandering a mile north from our place. Miraculously we got Daisy back but she messed up her leg during her escapade.

Daisy needs emergency elbow surgery performed by a specialist as soon as possible, and the total cost for everything is far more than we can currently afford. We feel bad asking for help and asking for money especially, as we know these are lean times for all of us due to COVID-19. As such, we hate to ask and we wouldn’t be asking if we didn’t have to, but if Daisy does not get this surgery right away, her leg will heal wrong and she will continue to be in pain. Our normal vet might be cheaper but they don’t have surgical availability until the end of the month, which they say would be too long to wait.

We have already paid $1500 in shelter, vet, emergency clinic, specialty consultation, pain medications, x-rays and ultrasound fees, and ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital has given us a total cost estimate of between $6000-8000 for everything that is further required to treat Daisy. We simply cannot afford this. We would be forever grateful if you can help us meet this cost.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness. Daisy is extremely special and important to us and it matters that we give her what she needs. If and when we are financially back on our feet again and you need our help for any reason, we promise you we will repay the favour and give what we can.

A Little Bit Asian

A girl asked me do you want to be in our gang, I said what are the requirements, she said you have to be a little bit Asian and a little bit crazy, I said you just 100% described me. My dentist swears up and down that someone comes into her office that looks exactly like me, she talks like me, she even has the same laugh apparently. My dentist had all the dental assistants and the receptionists gather around to see and all sundry murmured agreement. I said listen shit I don’t know who this bitch is but I’d love to meet her she sounds fucking terrific.

Black Lives Matter

Saying “All Lives Matter” as a response to “Black Lives Matter” is like saying the fire department should spray down all houses even if only one house is on fire because all houses matter. Yes all houses matter but the fire department does not need to spray your house if your house is not on fire.

Fuck Racism

Fuck racism. Racism is dangerous and stupid and racists are dangerous stupid people. Racism has no place in enlightened societies. Our world is in drastic need of changing and it’s up to us to make that change. It starts with the individual to end with the global. It starts here and now. We can’t afford to wait.

The World is Both

The world is both light and dark, and darkness is half of everything. You must accept darkness, and yet choose to live in the light. Consciousness is the gift of that choice. Every day, and at every moment, you can make the world darker or brighter. You alone are responsible for that decision. Every day, and at every moment, you deserve either the credit or the blame, depending on what you do, the actions you take, and the choices you make. Darkness and light, at all times, at every point, you have the power to make a real difference, and the responsibility to make the right choice.

The Lovebirds

Recently we watched The Lovebirds starring Issa Rae and Kumail Ali Nanjiani and it was so funny we cried​,​ our stomachs hurt from laughing. At one point we even had to stop the film and stand in the middle of the living room, throw our heads back and really get the laughs out, deep long belly laughs as we doubled over and clutched at each other. Suffice to say the film is hilarious, absurd, ridiculously funny. So refreshing and heartening too, to ​experience cinema starring a black woman and a brown man as the romantic leads and to have them be central to the story instead of just token characters. We love Issa Rae and Kumail Ali Nanjiani, they’re two of our favourite​ entertainers. What a great movie.
