Does this week feel endless to anyone else? Good thing it’s finally Friday! Come celebrate and laugh at the Harry Potter Award which made me Literal LOL.
So many things happened this week! Holly Miranda answered your questions and we discussed her album The Magician’s Private Library, Riese & co. liveblogged the Superbowl in which someone won and one of our commenters got to have sex, and Robin and Alex debuted the first two 2012 CALENDAR GIRLS! Also: some ideas for buying cologne or perfume, Rachel discusses the second book in our bookclub, The IHop Papers, Riese tells you why Planned Parenthood is important (seriously!) and IT WAS LANEIA’S BIRTHDAY GO TELL HER YOU LOVE HER.
The Canadian Smarties Reign Superior Award to reg.e:
i’m so distressed over this news. poor Americans. first they don’t have healthcare then they don’t have smarties. if it wasn’t for snow, crappy netflix and stephen harper i would tell all of you to come here.
The Massage Attack! Award to aikido.adonia:
I totally read that as “massage her” & I was like “hell yeah” that takes some balls. Then I re-read it and was like “eh yeah” still takes balls but not as much as a random surprise massage
The University of Bacon Cheeseburger: Make It A Thing Award to southpaw:
Like any good American, I saw UofT and UBC and immediately thought University of Texas and University of Bacon Cheeseburger. Thanks, Canada, for making me hungry.
The How to Meet Queers Award to BetteJean:
I buy this vanilla body spray from Walgreens called Body Fantasies Vanilla, it’s like $5 and it’s not some Bath and Body bullshit where you sell like watered down vanilla and sugar poop. No no. This stuff is balls to the walls vanilla, you sell like vanilla extract that you bake with. Everyone flocks to me and then lingers around so they can smell me. It’s how I meet new people.
The Harry Potter Award to bani:
harry potter and the deathly hallows 2 MUST WIN, or
you are a fool (logo) and you will lose
and how is carmen carrera even nominated for most addictive reality star? seriously, she has zero charisma uniqueness nerve talent.
The Queen Victoria Award to ohgee:
Also I got confused by the headline and thought that there was some British princess fighting Queen Elizabeth for her right to date ladies/wear tuxes/party.
The Touching Award to via:
whatever. you shouldn’t care about how your body looks, just how it feels.
really I mean your clit. right now. done.
