30 craft breweries in North Carolina are joining forces to fight HB2 with a specially brewed saison. All proceeds from the brew will be donated to Equality North Carolina and the QORDS summer camp for LGBT youth, both LBGT-focused non-profits. Their name for the beer is downright perfect.
Winter is back! No kidding, we had a few inches of snow around here this week and higher in the Alps even more. Laziness paid itself off again: I’m still driving on the winter rubber! Soooo a bit of skiing would come just… naturally. Here, some snowy slopes and sunny tracks with no further comments because nature is quiet in winter. Oh well but I should still mention a special Swiss beer - the Rechaud better called “fondue beer”. My neighbours from Bier Factory in Rapperswil meant it I guess to be enjoyed hot with cheese fondue. I had it cold instead, although with some cheese on the side and it’s white pepper aroma was quite special, challenging in a good way.
Sunday: My brother and I watched the USA v Mexico soccer match tonight. Soccer makes me smile so much.
Monday: I got a call from the hospital that might be doing my Spinraza injections. For months now, I’ve been waiting for my insurance provider to decide if they are going to pay for this new drug that will stop the progression of my disease. Whenever my phone rings with the hospital’s number, my body goes into complete panic—nervous sweats, rapid heart rate—as I prepare for what could either be the best or worst news of my entire life. The call I received today ended up being a minor update that they are “still working on insurance pre-approval.” Dismayed, again, I texted my girlfriend the non-news and she lovingly helped me refocus and keep trucking. Her infinite support makes me smile.
Tuesday: Last week I ordered some new clothing for myself online, which is always a shot in the dark, since my body most closely resembles a lopsided baby giraffe with muscular dystrophy. But the clothes arrived today and everything fit perfectly! It made me smile to celebrate the fact that I’m big enough for a child’s Medium t-shirt.
Wednesday: Today began the hectic and sometimes stressful process of preparing all 200+ runner bags for our upcoming 5K. Every year around this time, I forget how to do a Mail Merge to create labels, but I re-taught myself today, and that made me smile. An even bigger smile, though, was made by Sarah’s hard work and organization skills to ensure the bags got properly filled in a timely manner. She’s a well-oiled, one-(wo)man assembly line, and her enthusiasm for our upcoming event makes me smile.
Thursday: I have a new favorite food. Step one: cook mini Ore-Ida tater tots in the oven. Step two: place two slices of Cooper cheese on top. Step three: douse in honey mustard. Step four: smile.
Friday: Last night, I commented on a picture of Mitzi’s special beer and cheese soup, and this morning, guess who shows up at my door with a huge container of it, plus additional containers of their signature mac and cheese and braised beef? Thank you, Mitzi’s! Your generosity is astounding and makes me smile.
Saturday: The 5th annual Laughing At My Nightmare 5K was an enormous success! Preliminary counts show that we had record-breaking attendance and revenue, but we’ll do a thorough count this week. Most importantly, everyone had a great time running and laughing their way through a rain-drenched morning in the heart of Bethlehem, all so that we can continue providing equipment to people living with muscular dystrophy. That makes me smile!
It’s the cops are coming in type of sobering up It’s a girl who never learned that I could not give enough And my friends are happy, I’m happy, I’ve learned to adapt Darker kind of humor and I can still hear ‘em laugh
The following is what happens when you are missing one of your favourite shows, are watching the current season of another favourite show, and have a best friend that also watches both shows. I apologise for nothing and blame everything on her smurfiness @iamthegaysmurf.
Headcanon: Waverly Earp is a HUGE fan of the British Drama Call the Midwife!
She talks about it so much that one day Wynonna and Nicole decide to binge watch it so that they at least know what she’s babbling on about.
Doc joins them around season three - he often cries more than they do.
Waverly comes home one night to find Nicole firmly tucked up against her sister, Wynonna softly stroking her hair. - a quick glance at the screen in front of them shows Patsy scrubbing furiously at a dirty window, Waverly understands. Later, Wynonna and Nicole greet Waverly with shouts of “We trusted you!” when she re-enters the room before Nicole breaks down -
“They were so happy Waverly. They were happy and now… Now… What? Am I supposed to be grateful that Delia isn’t dead? Is that what they want? I just… I can’t…”
Doc returns to the Homestead, miraculously in time for the Xmas special, with beer and Nicole’s favourite chocolates - he was going to pick her some flowers but thought better of it.
We Make a Pretty Good Team - “Shit that’s Def, that’s super Def.”

There’s a soft knock on your door before it swings open and Nat pokes her head in. She winces - you’re deep in mediation, cross-legged on your bed with your eyes shut and hands closed in loose fists on your knees.
You didn’t hear her come in, so her voice surprises you. You feel your form waver as your concentration is broken, flickering between here and someplace before you settle back onto your bed. Nat walks in, an apology written all over her face, and says, “I wouldn’t have disturbed you if it wasn’t urgent.”
I take it that's really annoying then? Tourists I mean. -EA
He just don’t like the little crowds that gather everywhere and end up standing in his way. Plus they make the lines at Starbucks even longer and then they ask about the ‘British Specials’. They don’t exist. This is one company. They serve the same shit everywhere. This isn’t McDonalds.
