It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

Is everyone ready for a break? Okay, I’m looking around the room and seeing nothing but hands raised. That’s it, then: it’s settled. I’ll haul out the bean bag chairs, and there’s a papasan chair by the window for whoever snags it first. It’s BYOB, but I’ve got snacks covered–magic cookie bars and popcorn are on the table. Let’s make the most of this weekend, shall we?

If you’re still making plans for the weekend, then you’ve come to the right place. One of the great things about yeah write is that while we maintain high standards for writing throughout the week, we also understand that sometimes you’ve just got to let loose. That’s where this place comes in. I’ve got this little corner of the web set up for cocktails, mocktails, espresso, and snacks, now all you’ve gotta do is bring the writing.

I have a superstitious side to me that I don’t like to talk about. I blame it on my Irish heritage, although it could just be my inherent anxiety. So days like Friday the 13th give me pause, as does Mercury being retrograde. Times I inadvertently walk under a ladder or open an umbrella indoors give me an inner twinge as well. Is anything giving you pause on this auspicious day?

America is certainly not the center of the universe, but lately it’s been feeling like we should start stocking up on canned goods and jugs of water. Between the looming threats of the San Andreas fault and, ahem, other matters, it just seems like a good time to be prepared. It’s a good thing we’ve got this place set up for us, because at least we’ll have plenty of reading material to see us through.

Hey weekenders! Got any big plans for the day? Anyone going whitewater rafting or spelunking? Well, I’ve got some plans that should be an adventure–my first acupuncture appointment. Before you get all judgy and tell me how boring that sounds, keep in mind that a) I’ve never had it done before, and b) I’m in a lot of pregnancy-related pain that modern medicine can’t deal with, so I am very excited. If all goes according to plan, this will make me a very happy camper for the weekend.

It is truly a sad day in the universe–the Purple One is gone. He meant so many things to different people, but to me, he was the epitome of two qualities: artistry and authenticity. I came to him later in life, as I’ve never been a fan of pop or funk music, but eventually I came to realize that Prince was much more complex than any label thrust on him. I grew to respect his work and talent, as well as his advocacy for marginalized artists. He was such a cultural force that I am at a loss.

How does the world go on without Prince?
