  1. Hilarious. As you all say, “THIS”. Oh shoot it’s 12:19am Saturday morning. See how awesome Autostraddle behind the scenes is? Rock on!
    I’m so self conscious now of being the only autostraddler (does that word only apply to AS staff? Can I use it too? It’s cool) online now or are your posts queued?

  2. I love everything about this. Esp. number 16! I really really love the relationship that you guys have with each other. I read formspring questions on your tumblr and the friendship/hilarity cracks my shit up!

  3. “CAPITALIZING LETTERS” may actually be the story of my online life. It’s not my fault Kanye West is the only person who capslocks more than I do, I’m just too awesome for lowercase.
