new coming this weekHi all! I hope you had a great week!

We are dealing with life with a very active new kitten. He is busy busy, and also wants to be with me every moment. Everywhere I go, he is underfoot, so I am hoping this guy gets some chill soon, lol. But he is adorable and loves to be held and cuddled. This weekend is also Parent’s Weekend at my daughter’s university, so I have spent a lot of time there over the past few days, including Drag BINGO on Friday, a football game yesterday, and seeing The Prom at the school theater today. Other than that, I am just trying to get myself geared up for GRL and gather all my supplies, costume, etc. I can’t believe it is coming up so soon!

Also, I have set up an account with Blue Sky Social, which is basically a Twitter alternative (but with less right-wing intensity). Right now it is still in rollout, so you need an invite code to join. But if any of you are on there, you can find me at Joyfully Jay (user name Hope to see some of you there, especially as they begin to open it wider. You can also find a link under Follow Us in the red menu bar on the blog.
