The Comment Awards Are Holding Their Breath Until Camp Starts

You guys, there’s only one week until A-Camp and I am just on pins and needles. It’s guaranteed to be better than Riese’s camp experience and with Carmen’s help, you can avoid getting sunburn while you’re there. This week, we had Morgan on tips for raising a trans kid, Lizz on looking professionally alternative and everyone on cereal. Laneia taught you about making your space your own in the next installment of our o.b. series and Riese had more things she read and loved. Carolyn and I got baked and made soba noodle salad and lemony edamame pasta and Jessica took us to Tulsa, Oklahoma. This weekend, Record Store Day will happen and we had a guide to special releases, Rachel’s I’m the Shit playlist (part 2), Emily’s 6 favorite Feist videos, Carmen’s review of Nicki Minaj’s new album and the music fix. We had episode 6 of The Newtown Girls, Riese recapped Glee and Unicorn Plan-It needs your quarters!

  1. I was momentarily confused by the “rulers” comment because I really do bring a (metal) ruler with me everywhere, then I realised that’s not normal behaviour.

    But now I get to say it’s because I’m edgy and not just because I have compulsive neatness issues. Thanks, Carrie!

  2. BTW, not sure where to register this praise but the new Troop Beverly Hills default avatar is amazing.
