The Comment Awards Are Knotting Their Pearls


Hello, you perfect sourdough starters! I’m back from A-Camp and I feel a little bit like a Mister Rogers gif has lodged inside my heart. I’m so glad I get to spend a small corner of this Friday with all of your happy shiny faces!

This week, after Ilene Chaiken vague tweeted about a reunion of The L Word, Kayla speculated on a few directions the project could goMaking A Cat Murderer: The Mr. Piddles Story was my personal fave.

Cami wants to dapper up your graduation. You’re going to look so good!

Faith had a review of the amazing, perfect coming out episode of Master of None, which may or may not have made me cry on an airplane exactly two days ago.

Jenna wants us to live our best lives by installing dimmer switches. (She also confirmed that the one mystery fuse none of us can correlate to anything actually controls that streetlight in Narnia.)

Ali held game night at the bar, which sounds like a win-win if ever I heard one.

And then there were all of your amazing comments!

The Hello Kitty Award to Mina:

Sometimes, when I consider stuff like the continued existence of Ezra Fitz and all the other creepy, predatory men allowed to roam around wrecking shit, I regret pouring years of my young life into the last seven seasons and the first nine books of this messy series. Then Mona Vanderwaal tries to demonstrate heavy petting on a demonic board game and the regret melts away.

Holy hell, this review is poetry to my eyeballs.

  1. The Crossover from ‘El Award Made me laugh out loud!
    And I would like to dedicate this award to my paternal grandfather who not only used the expression “Jesus, Mary and Joseph” but meant it

  2. “The Crossover from ‘E'” made me lol and “Eyeballs to Entrail” made me clutch my invisible pearls WELL DONE MISS YOU

  3. Well, now that I’ve won two comment awards in the past two weeks there’s a lot of pressure. I won’t let you down, Autostraddle.
