The Comment Awards Are Having A Halloween Hangover

Hi there, pumpkin seeds! I hope you spent yesterday eating treats and marathoning scary movies with a cuddly significant other or pet!

This week Carly and Robin debuted their brilliant Gomez and Morticia Addams costumes, Tinkerbell popped in to give you a Candyland girl gallery and Lizz came up with 30 costumes for redheads. And did you spy Laneia’s brilliant Wednesday Addams costume in the Auto-staff childhood Halloween gallery?  According to Vanessa’s photo album, you’ve all been having quite the festive week too.

What else? We introduced even more writers and columnists, Hansen profiled Autostraddle’s amazingly talented illustrator, Rory Midhani, and Marni-the-bear was the guest on DeAnne’s Smith’s podcast. Speaking of DeAnne Smith, have you watched “Tiny Pineapple” yet? Get on it.

  1. Cat isn’t here to accept her award since she’s in transit to an Autostraddle meetup, so I’ll accept it on her behalf and give a shout out to the über religious, anti-halloween lobby to let them know the plans for worldwide witchcraft and lesbianism are coming along just fine.

  2. omg thank you. i knew my insane obsession with cats would eventually get me somewhere in life.

  3. “Young lady, you should really chill out on the wine consumption, it’s not as if it’s going to win you an award one day.”
