The Comment Awards Have A Bright Future, Are Wearing Shades

Hello, Puppy Breath!

I’m about 1.5 weeks away from finishing graduate school and not freaking out about it at all. I have no reservations whatsoever about going home for the first time in two years with a shiny new degree and zero job prospects. It’s fine.

I don’t even know what to do with this week. This week was off the chain, on fire, out of control, etc. Queen Freaking Latifah was on your TV in The Wiz. As if Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson weren’t adorable enough, Riese had to go and point out all these other cute May-December romances.

Autostraddle and its partners delivered a cat zine and the amazing Autostraddle commenters responded with cat pictures, thereby making my life.

Molly taught us how to do holigay cards right. Peaches’ music video happened, exploding minds and hearts. Corina delivered spot-on horoscopes, at least for me (Virgo). And Ali showed us alternatives to the default Windows logo. Who knew!?

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better – Stef and mozzarella sticks!

And comments!
