Hey! It’s the Last Comment Awards of 2010

Happy New Year’s Eve, guys. What are you doing tonight? I’m going to play iPad air hockey with my little brother because my friends want to go to Kentucky and that sounds even worse than Ohio. Anyway, Emily’s still on vacation so I’m bringing y’all the awards this week.

In honor of the new year, we’ve spent the past ten days compiling the top ten of everything. Por ejemplo, we’ve had the top 10 gay muppets, the best games and television of 2010, and the Autoindex where you were introduced to our resident invisible badass, Tess.

The Christmas open thread was pretty effing popular again this year, Jess had an interview with Laurel Holloman, and we have photos from the calendar release party in LA.

    • Welcome back. Now that Riese, Laneia, and Sarah have admonished us for not commenting enough I do not envy your job this week. Good luck!

  1. My older sister actually woke up before me on Christmas morning. It was either her desire to outdo our parents at holiday shindigs, or her husband, neither of which I was or ever will be worried about. I tried to sleep in. I did. But I failed.

  2. i had a feeling that the least amount of words i’d type would win. you just confirmed them.

  3. I was going to make getting a comment award a new years resolution but now i can change it to something more pertinent i.e. getting a real job
