Good day, Friday warriors! What have you been up to this week? Reevaluating how you make coffee? Inexplicably getting hooked on another queer-centric ABC Family show? Baking gluten-free buckwheat muffins? Checking out the Autostraddle Hot 100 while drinking a Wimbledon or two?
Weird, us too. In addition to that fun we’ve started budgeting for a big gay trip to Orlando, a next sex toy purchase and jumpsuits. Yes, Yes, jumpsuits. Onward to the awards (and the weekend), you beautiful weirdos!

Dudes! Dude, I don’t know what to say. I really love the word dude.
Dude, me too!
We need to make some kind of three-strikes gay win law for you, dude, well done^-^
Commenting on the comment awards like Riese likes! I’ll take this opportunity to discuss my dogs again. Today we took my older dog, Bella (13) to the vet today to get her some arthritis medicine. She’s feeling better already, I can tell! She gets up easier and seems to be in less pain.
Also, whenever Bella is really enjoying getting her hips massaged, she’ll try to lick whatever is out there as a thank you. In the vet’s waiting room this happened to be a random man’s leg, who was very shocked to have a dog licking near his genitals.
I’m glad my dog could make everyone awkward-laugh in the waiting room.
Several hours later and I’m still laughing at that jumpsuit comment. Just the other day my sister and I were in Target and she was looking at a romper and for the first time I realized something and said, “IF YOU WEAR A ROMPER HOW DO YOU PEE?” So I’m glad we could all have this moment together.
As someone who wears a lot of rompers, I can personally reassure you that the answer is “with difficulty”.
Just part of the romper charm, then?
It’s really sad but like every Friday I’m racking my brain to think if I might have said anything comment-award-worthy, and then berating myself to try harder the following week. Now I can take it easy next week! <3
Yay! It’s my first comment award :D High-five to Emily for being hilarious.
It is also my first comment award! Yay! :) (Although really all I did was set it up for Kathryn to be hilarious as I have seen her do many times in the comments.)
Also, for the second time this week, I came home around 4am last night from a night out and came on AS to find something brilliant. I tried to comment here last night about my pride for being in the comment awards.. but all I could type was drunken babble, so thankfully I left it ’til today instead.
