The Comment Awards Are Lounge-Of-Center


Hi there, Mounds and Almond Joys! It’s halfway through January! I’m still writing 2017 on my checks!

This week, A.E. had answers to a very important question: What do you do when strap-on sex leaves bruises?

You get inspired! And you get inspired! And you get inspired!

Alyssa’s handsome. But don’t take my word for it.

I love Stevonnie so, so much.

In this week’s AM/PM, Alaina’s got the vacuum (and the inner peace) I’ve been coveting for AWHILE.

So I guess warm-up pants are back?

Democracy now! Thanks, Laura.

You will cry, in the best way: I Hated Country Music Until I Met Lena.

On Pop Culture Fix: Would You Like to Hear a Story About Kate McKinnon, Gillian Anderson and a Bathtub?

The Shipping News Award to Rous Rose:

I have a rule of not shipping real-life humans – which I only break every time I see two adult females make eye-contact – but I’m pretty sure Kate and Gillian are pure manifestations of extremely high frequency energy ripping up the space-time continuum with ethereal perfection, anyway, so I’m going to go ahead and wish them a happy life together.
