The Comment Awards are Babashook


Hi there toaster strudels! How are you doing? It’s one million degrees outside where I live. Are you keeping hydrated? I just had the best plum of my life, so I’m gonna be riding that high for at least another fifteen minutes. (It was a black plum. The Babadook brought it to me.)

This week, Mal had some important things to tell us about NYC Pride.

Wynonna Earp is back, and Valerie’s recapping it for us! I am excitant!

Erin watched Claire of the Moon, and also a youtube video about hobby-horsing. I can’t even with Erin this week. She’s kind of perfection.

Reneice had this dispatch from the LA Resist March.

Ali’s got our day-drinking needs covered, in the classiest of ways.

Did you hear? The L Word cast got together for some laughing loving fighting f*cking crying drinking dreaming… I mean, a photoshoot and interview. But who killed Jenny?

And then there were your comments!

On We Are All These Hobby-Horse Girls:

The Rein It In Award to Kristana:

Those girls need to be careful that while they’re horsing around they don’t get charley-horses. The mane thing is though, all things being Equus, I feel that all they need to do to compete is just hoof it. As for the winner, long may she reins.

  1. Thanks for both giving ME a comment award and also giving the award that I do EGREGIOUSLY DEMANDED you give to Nate.

  2. Thanks QG, you are too generous.

    Also, I first typed the above sentence in the A+ contact box, which I have a habit of doing, so sorry to anyone who checks the A+ box and keeps seeing nonsensical messages.

      • Also tho can we talk about what a silly euphemism ‘box’ is? It’s not very box-like, just saying.

        • I am more than happy to convert this into a semi-serious investigation of the merits or otherwise of the box euphemism.

          handled by deliverymen


          • “Handled by delivery men” is making me think of all kinds of box-based pickup lines, some of which work, most of which don’t.

            “I’m like UPS, I’ll handle your box with care.”

            “If it fits, it ships.”

            Also, basically all of Fedex’s mottos sound like sex slogans…

            “When it Absolutely, Positively has to be there overnight”

            “It’s not Just a Package, It’s Your Business”

            “Our Most Important Package is Yours”

            “Absolutely, Positively Anytime”

            “The Way the World Works”

            “Be Absolutely Sure”

            “We Understand”

            “We Live To Deliver”
