Hey! Did You See That Comment? Friday

Guten Morgen, chiclets. How did this week go for you? I learned what an SSD is, met a lady with tattooed eyebrows, and made acquaintances by telling them about IHOP on Cox. In my opinion, it wasn’t too bad as far as weeks go. Over here at Autostraddle, we had lot of pictures to look at and music to listen to. If you felt like you were drowning, were looking for a car, or just wanted a great movie soundtrack, we had music to suit your emotional needs. We pleasured your eyeballs (pahahaha) with 100 lesbian movie kisses, 39 pictures of Starbuck (I honestly have no idea who this person is), and a bunch of women in uniform. Jessica, our legal eagle beagle, updated you on Prop 8 and Annika and Sebastian watched Nightline’s “transgendered” special. Sometimes the world is just baffling, you know? Brittani counted down top 5 non-water beverages (although there’s probably a lot of water in them), Lizz had your fashioncap, and everyone shared their feelings about jeans. Onward ho to Brianna and the group of the week!

    • Red is a totally legit flavor and my favorite one at that! Red, purple, and green are all the flavors of my childhood. or as Dave Chappelle would say “what is this ‘juice’? I want some of that purple stuff”. I can’t leave the house without Kool-aid in my bag……ok I may have a problem :D

    • Bite your tongue, clearly the superior flavor is BLUE. You always know what you’re getting with Blue. Red, not so much.

  1. Now that my adult underachievement has been displayed for all autostraddlers to see, I really feel like I oughta read that book… but I’m gonna say it still isn’t likely to happen this decade!
