Something on Sunday: 11/12

Happy Sunday, friends! If you’re anything like 90% of the people I follow on Twitter, you’re very tired of hearing miserable stories about sexual assault. So this Sunday (and all the Sundays!) I bring you some glad tidings, which hopefully will be a small tonic.

Inspired by:

Gal Gadot refusing to reprise her role as Wonder Woman unless Warner Brothers ensures that Brett Ratner’s involvement with the DCU ends. I don’t know if she’ll stick to her guns but I sure do hope so.

Happy about:

Voting! I early voted! I sure love voting, y’all. Doing my civic duty can be a pain in the ass sometimes, like when it is jury duty season, but at other times it makes me purely happy. Voting makes me happy.

Charmed by:

My baby nephew learning what a tiger is. He now semi-consistently says “Raow” in a tiny, growly voice, if you ask him what a tiger says. Sometimes, if he spots a tiger or a lion or a large yellow cat in one of his books, he will also say, with great seriousness, “Giger.” What a good and nice baby he is.

(I admit that he saw a squirrel yesterday and said RAOW but I choose to believe he was trying to indicate that he recognizes a squirrel as the type of thing a tiger would roar at, then eat.)

What’s your Something on Sunday, pals? Link it up below!


  • Susie

    Oh your nephew sounds adorable! I wish him well with his ambition to be a tiger. I like voting too 🙂

    Thank you for starting Something on Sunday – it’s been nice to stop and remember the fun things during the week!

  • Citizen Reader

    Nephews are the best! Glad you have each other–good strong smart aunts are one of the first steps in making good strong smart boys. RAOW!

  • Now, I think these sexual assault stories, while brutal, are leading to something good. What I am tired of is the GOP supporting Moore and their utter inability to separate themselves from the party first, morals second mentality.

  • All of the sexual assault/harassment stories that have been coming out this week have been making me furious. How hard is it just to act like a human? UGH. Yay Gal Godot, I hope they make a change so she doesn’t have to back down in order to keep playing a role she’s magnificent in. And yay little nephews, that’s adorable 🙂

  • JeanPing

    Oh wow, go Gal! Also baby nephews are awesome.

  • Jeane Nevarez

    Your nephew sure sounds cute!

  • That is crazy adorable. Roawr! You should get him a Lion King toy for Christmas
