Hi all! Are you at Dinah Shore? Yes? No? Here is a guide to what Autostraddle is doing over there, and if you’re like me, you’ll want to live vicariously through them via the liveblog which will probably be the best part of your weekend.

The I’d Write To Gay Abby Award to abby:
Dear ‘Dear Abby:’
Now, I realize you give such shitty advice that you must use an alias, however, some real people have earned the name ‘Abby’ (exactly as you spell it), and would like for you to step out of your advice-giving closet and use your legal name. That being said, if I followed the advice you give, I’d probs end up in a ditch somewhere in California, searching for the truth and panning for gold. Keep in mind that only a select few can live life as unicorns.
