“ok who sent me an autostraddle email address request for kristen stewart”
Reneice got in my bed and we MADE COOKIES. That should be all you need to know but I will also tell you that we answered food-related advice and also some relationship-advice, all while filling my sheets with crumbs! Woot!
Rhea Butcher got in bed with me and said SO MANY REALLY BRILLIANT THINGS on a range of topics including turtles, gender, clothing, pronouns, and marriage. What a day.
“I don’t know who you are but I’ve never believed in anyone’s ability to reach peak mommi more than you”
Erin Sullivan joined me in bed last week to report from the field on HOW TO DO FIRST DATES. All you need to know, plus Jenny joins and shares with us her thoughts on “bringing a worksheet for you both to fill out.” We are so good at this. (Oh, and also the ring light made us ghosts.)

It is 2018, I still have a bed, and I had a damn great time talking to all of you about how we are going to tackle this new year from every angle like the Amazons we are. *muscle flex*
It’s that time again! Time to look back at the content that did good on social media, our income and expenses, and the other numbers that determined our sense of self-worth in 2017.
When did you know it was over?
Jen! Richards! Is! The! Best!! We talked about everything from HerStory to Keanu Reeves to being trans and home for the holidays to witchcraft and related book recommendations, and it *all* ruled.
I wonder what Laneia looked like in her winter coat as a small child, or what pose KaeLyn made in front of the Christmas tree when she was 4, or what wacky gift Riese’s aunt bought her one year. LET’S FIND OUT.
” is “Let’s Make Cheese Boards and Never Leave the House Again” a title
or is it a tweet”
Riese got in bed with me to help compile as many gift ideas & party thoughts as humanly possible, and everyone is welcome in advance. PS: My mother-in-law bought me these socks.
“I was guilty and heartbroken and I wasn’t ready to let go of her: my first kiss, my first time, my first girlfriend, my first love, my first everything and before that, my best friend.”
There was a time before time, in the yawning abyss of darkness and starfire that is the infinite and ever-expanding universe — a time before any of us had had lesbian sex. Most of us thought about it, though, or tried to imagine how it would work! We were not always correct.
“Out beyond ideas of likable and unlikable comments there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.”
“There were all these fairy lights and we drank and were drunk and everything felt warm and easy.”
Last week we got in bed together and talked about how life changes all the time forever, and how we are expected to actually just *handle* that?!
