I wish y’all knew how hard it is for me to resist buying graphic tees - especially from sites like @MondoNews - like every single day.
Had to do a double take on this ad. Thought it was my boy ⁦@TjeAustinMusic⁩ modeling some earbuds for ⁦@CNN⁩
Waiting on 🌮🌮 earlier... Over the intercom a woman’s voice announces: “Wendy?” I immediately yell from across the room, without thinking: “Yes, Lisa?” 😆😆😆 👁 💜 U @wendyandlisa @therevolution
Super stoked about @Adobe #ProjectRush. Signed up for for early entry but no word. 🤞🤞🤞
Me to @Starbucks barista: are you sure this frapp is double blended? Barista: yes Me *looking at frapp cup* : Are you sure? Barista: yep, have a nice day. Me *attempting first slurp* :
SO frustrated with @hotelsdotcom right now. Called cust.serv regarding booking. Offered callback. Callback put me back in phone tree. 1st reg=no help, transferred. 2nd rep=no help, transferred. 25 mins later? STILL ON HOLD😡
Had so much fun at @mrkravin’s bday pool party that I forgot to post a pic and bday wishes! Love you bubba!
Laughter fills your ❤️ with joy. Take a moment today to be silly, be ridiculous. Laugh. 😆

Tomorrow night at @sixspringslive y’all! #RealLiveBlues
Call me old fashioned but I don’t need big reveals, stunning twists, or 82 death drops every lip sync. Just know the words, look sickening, & slay. Started finale wanting 1 queen to win & by the end I was rooting for another. She didn’t win, but she slayed. Great season @RuPaul!
Yas! Just saw my girl @lyndseyparker stunting pretty on the season finale of @RuPaulsDragRace (also a great opp to use this @mackenziebourg double-take gif)
Who’s coming out to see me at @sixspringslive this Saturday?
Once again, apparently not "Americana" enough for Americana Music Association. So don't look for me in Nashville this September.✌️
Let’s get this thang rockin’ Saturday night at Six Springs Tavern!

Hey @AmericanAir! You’ve been sooo helpful this week trying to get me back home to my dog before his surgery. I sent you a couple of DMs earlier. Hope to hear from you soon.
Please send some good vibes to our Bouvier, Tyson. Vet says he has a tumor on his spleen with some internal bleeding. The Robot is with him in Austin and I’m doing my best not to freak out in LA.

Gosh it sure would be nice if @Airbnb would add a "piano filter" to make it easier for me to find homes to stay in where I could write and rehearse. Seems like a simple piece of code.
