The Comment Awards Are So Mommi Right Now


Hi cuties! I’ve been eating a lot of Cuties lately – you know, those mandarin oranges that come like 20 to a bag at Trader Joe’s? Those tender, seedless little fruits seem to be less a food than they are a promise: you will get through this workday, this holiday, these house guests. These months can be hard on the heart and the immune system — whenever things start to feel overwhelming, take a breath and eat a Cutie. I promise you will be okay!

This week, Reneice made pumpkin pie!

‘Tis the season for Holigay Gift Guides, and here’s one full of amazing stuff from indie POC designers, from Carmen.

Jinghua went to Asia’s biggest Pride march, and it looked amazing.

Kyle’s cooking up an amazing Thanksgiving feast, with these recipes that embrace any and all dietary restrictions.

There’s a new Doctor Who and she’s a woman and she wears suspenders and I am FINE, everything is fine. Anyway, here are Alaina’s best tips on how to dress like her.

I think that you should read this. You will need tissues.

  1. Thanks QG, I had to overcome my revulsion towards Comic Sans to make that gif but I thought the ends justified the means.

  2. I’d missed Carmen and Kristana’s comments.
    Two things it made me think of:

    the airport where the english sign said “swaddling facilities”

    and the friends who almost ran into a cardboard box on the highway, and something made them stop on the side and go back. There was a baby (alive) in the box. They ended up adopting the baby – they had been wanting a child for so long. It’s possibly the most incredible thing I have had happen to anyone I know.

  3. “whenever things start to feel overwhelming, take a breath and eat a Cutie”
    That’s wisdom right there.

  4. Hot Take: Baroness Schraeder isn’t that bad. She actually helped Maria and Captain von Trapp to get together

    • I am just realizing that I definitely had the hots for her when I used to watch this movie as an awkward middle schooler. She’s so pretty and shiny!

      Agreed on your hot take @carmensandiego. I can’t recall all the details bc I haven’t watched that movie in forever, but I don’t even remember her doing anything mean or objectionable. Let’s clear her name!
