Happy Days of July! Comment Awards

Hello friends and lovers. Did you have a good fourth of July? I’m asking this to all of you because the fourth of July happens everywhere, not just the U.S. It is, after all, a date. I saw appropriately knee-high corn, read about privilege, and got a fantastic sunburn. I don’t know what Canadians do on their independence day, but I think I could handle 50 pictures of Ellen Page becoming a yearly tradition. On the first of July, we had formspring Friday and you guys basically solved everyone’s problems. On other days in July, Riese recapped The Real L Word and Pretty Little Liars. On a day before July, Laneia had a sing-along to Dazed and Confused only instead of singing, she cooked. In other cooking news, Lesbians like granola. All right, let’s check at the kickASS group of the week. (Yeah, I stole that from The Soup).

Online AS Pictionary Group!

It’s become obvious to me that you all love board games. You really, really love them. Fortunately, Allie made this group for you where you can organize amongst yourselves to get together and play Pictionary online. You can play all the board games on the internet, without the crippling social anxiety that comes with meeting people in real life! Though you can and should do that too.

The Best Day Ever Award to wasteunit: “I’m a park ranger, so the 4th of July and I are not friends.
My weekend so far:

– Man who told me to go fuck myself because directions involving three left turns are too hard.
– 15 year old boy who had his right nipple bitten by a fish. It was bleeding.
– Anti-Islamic man who said (while holding a guide to understanding the bible), “Are they (pointing to a group of Muslim people) allowed to be in the campground with the rest of us? I don’t want to camp here again if they’re going to be here.”
