Other topics included surviving summer without air conditioning, fun with tarot cards, scissoring (yes, scissoring) and the not-so-proud “Proud Whopper.”

3 weeks in a row? You guyyys! I’m putting this on my okc profile under “accomplishments”
I actually thought about putting that on my profile, two time autostraddle comment winner, but I was told that’s being too boastful.
Apply for a contributor on AS and put comment award achiever.
m. teerexintgon is doing the Goddess’s work. Bless.
I would accept your discounted ice cream any day. #queerprivilege
So… where’s that ice cream shop exactly?
Seattle. no joke. we can make a secret password or whatevs.
I would swing by your ice cream shop to perpetuate the Gay Agenda (ice cream branch) if I lived locally, however even from NZ I can feel your cold welcoming snowcone love. Long may you pull discounted snowcones to lady lovin’ ladies :)
wait i’m in seattle all the time and for real want to stop by for Discount Gay Ice Cream…
message me! gay ice cream discounts!
I’m still kind of confused as to how you apply for the discount. How does the employee know you’re gay?
A highly trained sense of smell.
Beating 2048 AND winning a comment award ?!?! WINNING AT LIFE. Thanks AS! :D
THESE ARE THINGS WE SHOULD INCLUDE IN OUR RESUMES.
Awwww, thanks! Now, to find someone with whom to scissor…
You knew this was coming.
You’re doing the lord’s work
First comment award ever! Woohoo! Along with the roller derby-ing, and the fact that just this evening I made my first ever Tinder date, this has probably been the gayest week ever. Thanks Autostraddle!
