Hi, everyone! This happened and I had to share: Ben and I are going to South Dakota to visit my family this weekend and in the process of planning, we were invited to a gay sex party in Sioux Falls and I guess that, while normally not my jam, I feel like it should be a thing that we do because it's such a delightful way to say "fuck you" to my upbringing in that state.

Now I just want to cry.

This is how we sleep now, I guess.
It's Warren's world. I'm just living in it. Truly. #qualitätskatzen
I live in Minneapolis, work on websites and do civic-minded art. I’m married to Ben and attend to two cats, Warren and Nocturne.
