Here’s An Award For Your Feelings, This Week Was Full of Them

Firstly, HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY AUTOSTRADDLE!

In case you need reminding of this next year, you should make sure to buy a 2012 calendar around this December. Oh look, we have our girls for March.

Pure Poetry Week continues, hopefully forever, and this week we had a special post: Sady Doyle talk about Diane Di Prima and it’s beautiful and moving and wonderful. Also, the kids at Harding University made a queer zine which probably has a billion views by now, Nacho the dog gets Tyra Mail, Sebastian takes us back to age 3 when he first knew he was a boy, and we celebrated international women’s day.

Oh, and Santana is queer for real.

On Happy International Women’s Day, Homos!:

The Two for One Award to Sally:
This is tricky. If you only have so much celebrational energy, do you spend it on International Women’s Day, or Pancake Day? I mean really, those two things don’t have much in common.
Pancakes are best enjoyed smothered in jam or chocolate, having been yielded by a firm and vigorous wrist-action.
Whereas women…
ah sorry, I drifted off for a second there.

Anyway, thank you for all that you do! You’ve totally changed my life for the better.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 124 articles for us.

  1. The wasteunit award for wasteunit? Is this the first time?? I can’t remember, but I fully support it!! Congrats wastie!

    So I don’t seem like a total fangirl dickwad: Congrats everyone else. I lol’d all over the place.

  2. Oh lols, I heart you autostraddle, thanks.

    I am totally up for organising an AS meetup in Muff. Who’s with me?

    Yes I have actually been to this place. (In every sense of the word)

    YOU. Are. Awesome.

  4. I cannot believe I actually won award!
    This possibly made my day, my week, my MONTH.

    You know, I would say my life is now complete, but my lesbian purity test informs me that I am still 91% pure.

    I still have many things to look forward to, dont’ I??

    PS: Winning a comment award is pretty sweet already, but winning one because of Harry Potter?! Fucking priceless…
