The Comment Awards Are Interviewing Their Dogs

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

Hi there, fireflies! This week we had a rare summer rainstorm, and Milo wasn’t sure what to think about the whole ‘water falling from the sky’ thing. I absolutely cannot WAIT for fall weather! It’s coming!!!!!

This week, Christina’s got your autumn wedding looks!

Drew is reporting from TIFF! She loved How to Blow Up a Pipeline, but wanted more from Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

Niko reviewed Curses, a video game where ’90s nostalgia serves as both catharsis and curse.

On 8 Other Ways Pilot Kayla Watts of Jurassic World: Dominion Could Have Come Out As Bisexual:

The Gender Fluid Award to Am I Ginger:

Redheads can indeed be any gender in case you didn’t know.

On Quiz: Which Iconic Star Trek Officer Are You?

The To-Do List Award to Ortegas appreciation:

I clicked on this quiz as soon as it went live and I think there was a glitch where for the “what would you do on shore leave

On You Need Help: How to Feel Good About Getting Older:

The Superpower Award to Northern-Barbarian:

One of the things I loved about hitting my 40s was that I became invisible to men. So liberating! And hot flashes vary hugely among women; it is a scandal that scientists still have poor understanding of what is going on. Some people get hot flashes from alcohol; I don’t. I get a lot more of them in warm and humid weather, and I have a very regular pattern: one at 9 PM, one about 20 minutes after I go to bed, one after I shower… go figure. The literature said that hot flashes could last several years. I haven’t my period in about 7 years and they are still going strong.

On Also.Also.Also: DapperQ Hosted the ‘Largest Queer Show’ in Fashion Week History, We Can Be Our Own Vogue if We Believe:

The Dog Days Award to Cleo:

I misread this and thought that Roxanne Gay did an interview WITH her dog and not ABOUT her dog. So I was a little disappointed when I discovered it was two humans talking about dogs, not a human and a dog in conversation. But Roxanne Gay is delightful and the dog photos are adorable.

On No Filter: It’s Hard To Express How Much I Loved This Dress on Megan Stalter:

The Great Expectations Award to Andrea_T:

I love that every time Melissa King posts a photo with a puppy she says “I’m just their uncle

On Peppa Pig’s Lesbian Polar Bear Moms are a Pretty Big Deal Actually:

The British Idol Award to KeltyV:

As someone who works in childcare part-time, I can attest to the fact that Peppa Pig has god-like status amoung kiddos. This will be so cool for kids to see their or their friends family structure depicted.

And on Beth Ditto Is a Lesbian Country Music Star in the Gloriously Unhinged “Monarch”:

The Ditto! Award to dragonsnap:

I saw the headline and tag and immediately went to spotify and apple music to listen to this amazing new “Monarch

  1. Aww Milo, rain IS confusing.

    We had too much of it in Chicago – a supercell storm parked itself over my neighborhood on Sunday and we got 3 to 4 inches in 4 hours. We were lucky not to get too much damage. There was a lot of flooding but it went down quickly.

    And thank you Darcy. I may have chortled in joy when I saw the headline and realized it was from my comment!
