The Comment Awards Are Calling From the Rooftops

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hello! I got a potted Norfolk Pine for Christmas, and I’m positive I’m overwatering it. Or under-watering it. The instructions say to keep the soil moist, but is moist the same as wet? It’s wet when I water it and then the next day it’s dry! HOW DOES A PERSON KEEP SOIL MOIST IN A VERY DRY HOUSE?

It’s fine, I’m fine! Me and my Norfolk Pine! We’ll be fine.

This week, Yao blessed us with infinite tea.

Ahead of the release of the But I’m A Cheerleader Director’s Cut, Drew interviewed Jamie Babbit! What a joy this is!

Casey the Lesbrarian was back with another book roundup, with a subject that’s very near and dear to my heart: fat queer people!

Are you an A+ member? Happy Holigays to youuuuu!

The Derry Girls showed up on Great British Bake-Off, because sometimes we CAN have nice things!

Of course this was perfect: 10 Times Things Went Well But Also Very Badly For Lesbians on Rooftops.

And then there were your comments!


On The Dyke Kitchen: Bold, Tingly, Spicy Mapo Tofu:

The Life/Food Balance Award to gabi:

Wow I thought you meant your girlfriend lived in a tofu shop in portland and my mind went on a long tangent fantasizing about what it would be like to live in a tofu shop

On Watch Aubrey Plaza Do a Tarot Card Reading and Play F*ck/Marry/Kill With Some Witches:

The Perfect Love Award to Charlotte:

“Be grateful for your abundance, you privileged piece of shit” God I love her

On The Derry Girls on Great British Bake Off Is the Only Good Thing to Happen in 2020:

The Wee Wheeled Lesbians Award to Max and Kristana:

Someday, I am going to see “Derry Girls” and not read it as “Derby Girls”. Today is not that day.

On Pop Culture Fix: Aisha Tyler and Charlize Theron Want to Play Lesbian Wives in a “Die Hard” Remake:

The Fanfic Award to Laura and msanon:

Dammit, I missed the “want” in the headline and thought the Die Hard remake was real. Such a happy few minutes…

On Lez Try It: Flower Arranging á la “Imagine Me and You”:

The Aster(ix) Award to mdawg:

So what I’m hearing is that the Victorians were flagging, but with flowers. Queer culture icons right there.

On 10 Times Things Went Well But Also Very Badly For Lesbians on Rooftops:

The Hear Me Roar Award to Snaelle:

Very here for this “The Lost World: Delirious” movie

And the Postal Service Award to Chandra:

They will see us gaying from such great heights

And on Rosie O’Donnell Playing “Carrie” on “The L Word: Generation Q” Season 2 — Which Is Absolutely Tina’s Fiancée’s Name:

The TIIIINAAAAA! Award to Chloe:

Isn’t Carrie supposed to be Tina’s fiancée’s name???? IS ROSIE PLAYING TINA’S FIANCÉE

Queer Girl is your number one fan. She's a fat feminist from California who doodles hearts in the corners of her Gay Agenda. She's working on a children's book, she's on Twitter, and she thinks you should drink more water! She also wants to make you laugh.

  1. I want a movie of gabi’s tofu shop premise, but I’m afraid to wish for it in 2020, bc I’m picturing something nuanced by Alice Wu, but fear instead it would be two white lesbians discovering how they could slow down and enjoy life, ending with one of their suddenly ex-homophobic moms doing macramé with them.
