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.

Speaking of playlists, here are 5 playlists for you to have sex to. What will help you get laid? Reading books! Join our book club, we’re reading Bastard Out of Carolina, by Dorothy Allison.

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.
Regretfully yours,
a gay Abby

The Liveshare 2011 Award to Brianna:
I ate three bananas today and one of them was in a sandwich. Just thought you should know.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 124 articles for us.
