The Comment Awards Are Posting The Very Best Thirst Traps, TYVM

Hello, my loves! Guess what I did: I awarded the comment awards backwards (newest to oldest) instead of chronologically like I normally do. But instead of fixing it, I’m gonna embrace it! Life’s too short! Gonna eat dessert first! Breakfast pasta! Pants on criss-cross! Etc!


This week, the TV team discussed the ways Orange is the New Black changed tv forever.

Drew watched Rebecca and oh boy, was it a thirsty classic!

Not always sure what to say on a first date? Rachel’s got you covered.

I have a crush on everyone featured on Insta Crush.

Drew went to Outfest and I must include this headline in all its glory: Outfest 2019: The Future of Queer Cinema Is Trans.

You got help! The team gave advice on all of the burning questions you submitted during the fundraiser.

Jen Richards killed us dead.

In this week’s Foolish Child, relationships with the shows we watch can be…complicated.

In perhaps the one piece of casting that could make me truly excited for The L Word: Generation Q, it’s…Jamie Fucking Clayton, Ladies and Gentlefolks!

This first essay from The Travel Issue absolutely blew me away.

And then there were your comments!

The Everything The Light Touches Award to Claire:

This Leo is loving skimming this for only the positive words and ignoring all the rest! Thanks for this 100% positive nothing negative article about Leos!!!

On No Filter: This Extremely Hot Picture of Jen Richards:

The Influencer Award to Meghan:

In the Celine Dion pic, it doesn’t look like one where she’s the one being excessively influenced

I posted that photo just to be included in No Filter. 😀

On 25 Questions to Make Conversation with on a First Date:

The Rich Tapestry Award to Snow:

I thought I’d be making art, traveling, and playing music. Now I’m transplanting organs in Utah. Life goes in strange directions. How the hell did you end up here?

The Dump Them Award to Amanda ling:

Wow, sometimes you’re going along thinking everything is alright and then you hear there are people who don’t give their lover water on a hike.

And on

I’m so excited for AS! Watching the flash sale is super fun, I want every perk! What if one of Archie’s perks was being a guest character in Grease Bats?!

  1. I’m just so excited about exceeding the fundraising goals. I couldn’t give much but it felt so good to give it and it feels so good to be part of a community that came together to raise this much money for such a good cause.

    And I had never noticed the order of the awards either.

  2. Oh wow! Hi yes! I am so excited for whoever it is that did end up getting that perk! Jealous, maybe, I was asleep when it posted and can’t afford $100 rn anyway, but still jealous. I’m sure its gonna be really cute and exciting when it happens!!!!!

  3. For clarity, when I wrote my comment I had misread the article and thought that was a literal thing that had happened, but honestly I am just as distressed by the metaphorical reality. Give your lover water, but like for their emotions.
