The Weekly Squint—
Detail of a ‘Cherry Parfait’ rose in the rose garden.

Squint is an every-Thursday post that features snapshots of small, obscure Huntington details that catch our eye. It’s a little window into some of the delightful minutiae that bring a smile to our collective face.

A quick look at British and American spelling

American english is like real english but badly spelled…

Not all of these are totally accurate though. For example, “theatre” vs “theater”. In America, theatre is still a word. Here, the word theater is used when talking about the physical building (e.g. “I saw Frozen at the movie theater downtown.”) Theatre, on the other hand, is used when referring to the art form.

I have spent too much time with Brits and now I spell sh*t every which way.

so this is a thing

a bunch of moms are making letters+audio recordings of affirming, validating letters to queer/trans people who don’t get that kind of support from their moms

i would say more about it but

im kind of busy in this puddle of tears on the floor so

In case any of my followers don’t have this kind of support from home…

my mom did this and if you need an honourary mother i promise she would be happy to talk to you
