The Comment Awards are Doing Some Deep Breathing


So this morning I was looking up fun facts to send to a friend to ease our post-election stress, and I discovered that parakeets yawn, and whales have midwives. The world is so much bigger than us! It’s so much bigger than the here and now.

This week, the team planned their resistance, and Kayla wore a lot of hats.

Kari found herself in a pungent predicament.

Erin watched Go Fish, and Kieryn reflected on her childhood in the culture wars.

Lucy is adopting her own daughter, and she has some feelings.

Supergirl recaps are back from Valerie Anne! And speaking of Supergirl, Melissa Benoist was among the five million people who marched last weekend.

And then there were your comments!

  1. Good job everyone! We made it through the first week of Trump!
    Go get yourselves some drinks

  2. This comment award is just what I needed. I’ve had a long week, then got a big piece of news and had three people tell me what to do in response before I even had time to process it. I may turn to reviewing some ca-yute selfies from a friend/crush and call it a night.

  3. I somehow missed that you were doing the comment awards until just now, queer girl! That’s awesome! Congrats. <3

  4. I just wish you hosting them wouldn’t mean excluding yourself from the awards, QG!
    P.S.:*bows gratefully*
    P.P.S:Just downloaded a water drinking app.
