Wedding Mondays

We’re headed into what I already know is going to be a difficult week. San Francisco’s gloom has rolled in, but that dark cloud of COVID-19 is still hanging over us. As much as possible, I want to try and spread some joy on Yow Yow! so we’ll do our best to keep it up with the positivity here. I randomly caught this wedding video recently while I was in Thailand. Without knowing anything about the couple at all, I still felt touched by it and wanted to share here.

One thing that has hit hard with COVID-19 is that because of the measures we are taking to protect ourselves, we can’t celebrate. Two of my close friends have had to put their wedding on hold. Under the celebration umbrella, funerals and birthdays are also stalled. I know this isn’t easy for anyone and it’s going to be hard for a long time, but we have to do this together.

That’s Cringe: You.

Remember when I said we need a little laughter this week? I’ve never heard of Cody Ko until now, but this made my stomach hurt. Him and his friend Noel commentate on videos they find on the internet and it really makes you think about what’s existing out there.

Don Lemon on Trump’s Gaslighting

I never once imagined that I’d go through a time like this in my life and I’m going to remember it forever. One thing I’ll hold onto is the fact that we were incredibly ill-prepared for an event like this. And there’s really only one individual responsible for that. I know in a time like this it feels weird to know what to post about. I’ll continue to do both. I want to share pieces that are relevant to what’s happening now in this pandemic, but I also wan to break it up. There should be things that we can read and watch that make us laugh or bring us some joy even if for a brief moment.

Don Lemon hit the nail on the head with this one. And it’s an important watch if you can see it through to the end.

Dating Around Returns For Second Season

I remember seeing a few months ago that a new season was in the works, but having only seen that one source, I didn’t believe it until now. Netflix’s underrated dating show “Dating Around” is officially back on track. Last year, we fell in love with the series after the new year in an unexpected way. First off, it was nothing like the Bachelor franchise, even though we love the show. There weren’t any gimmicks, competitions or doubting whether someone was there for the right reasons.

Instead, “Dating Around” is about something we’re all too familiar with: the first date. I wrote an entire review about it [here]. It’s unclear when the second season will appear in our queues, but it is confirmed that it has already been filmed and wrapped set in the city of New Orleans. The series will continue on its same format and with six episodes just like before.
