The Comment Awards Adjusts to Humidity and Also Alligators

Hello Wonderful Humans!

This was my first week in a new place! We’ve lived in Florida now for an entire week. Today I finally shrugged off my self-consciousness and got up the courage to wear a bowtie in public. The second I walked out my door someone asked me, without an ounce of irony, if I work on a cruise ship. It’s a whole new world is what I’m saying. Also I am going into day seven of sleeping on the floor in an empty apartment.

Thank goodness that during this time of discombobulated disarray there is one constant in my life – Autostraddle dot com.
