The Comment Awards Are Going Crazy

Hey friends. This week’s edition of the comment awards is brought to you by kibble and dog hair because I’m house- and dog-sitting for my friend while she’s on vacation. So far it’s going swimmingly. As in, swimming in the water from when the toilet overflowed yesterday and the dog tracked it all over the house. Luckily, I have also of you crazy people here to keep me sane. This week, it was everyone’s birthday, Taylor ask for and received an apology from Gary Shapiro, and Whitney wrote an open letter to Margaret Cho. Carolyn made zucchini, rasin, and pine nut salad, I made spinach ravioli, and Riese made another list of things she read and loved. Pariah is coming to a city near you and we got answers to 5 of your questions. Finally, we’ve got a Golden Globes liveblog, Lizz’s Pretty Little Liars fashioncap, and the newest episode of In Your Box Office: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
