The Comment Awards Are Saying Goodbye To 2013

Hello there, yuletide gays! I’m writing to you from the snowy Midwest where my dad’s alarm clock has been playing a jazzed up version of “Silver Bells” every five minutes for the past hour. How are you? I hope you’re having a festive week filled with minimal fruit cake and family conflict. Isn’t that what the holigays are all about?

In this last bit of 2013 we’re having a Boxing Week sale, spicing up your life and suggesting some makeout-friendly chapstick combos.

Kaitlyn wrote about ten women who could have been The Advocate‘s “Person of the Year” instead of Pope Francis, Kate recommended LGBTQ charities worthy of your dollars and Ali discussed Blue Is The Warmest Color for the Autostraddle Book Club’s seventh installment. Then Riese shared some Canadian memories, Laura showed us how to make an ancestral family tree and the team tested out the loveably co-dependent app.

Now let’s get to last Comment Awards of the year!

    • I now want to see Katie commenting on everything on this website forever. I lost it by the time I reached “strange pizza party for my grandpa”. I am dazzled by your commenting skills.

  1. I may or may not have just bragged about being mentioned in the comment awards to my girlfriend (while giggling the entire time..)

    Which she responded to with rolled eyes and a: “you’re such a dork” response… Mission accomplished? ;)

    I hope I haven’t given everyone inflated expectations for my future commenting skills… The pressure mounts!
