And then there were your comments!


On You Should Make A Blanket Fort This Weekend:

The Kitty Whisperer Award to Lex:

Once upon a time my family fostered/tamed feral kittens. Don’t remember who’s idea it was but one day we made a blanket fort, the kittens LOVED it. Especially the rather standoffish majestic and only long haired kitten, he became an absolute PURRBALL. And le gasp CUDDLY. Naturally my sibling and I never wanted to take the blanket fort down ever but alas the evening news needed to be seen and the chairs back at the dinner table…eventually. 11-12 year olds need as many purry kitten cuddles as they can get.

On Happy Hour at Home: How to Have Afternoon Tea Service at Home:

The Mad Skyper Award to Leora Spitzer:

My college friends and I had a skype tea party this week where we all put on fancy clothes and drank tea together. As nice as being in pajamas all the time has been, it also really helped to have a reason to dress nicer and put my tea in a fancy cup instead of a thermos like the rest of the week and, like, actually brush my hair. One of the participants actually made herself profiteroles, which is way more put together than I can manage, but I highly recommend the “communal” tea party experience. Maybe next time I’ll make myself some fancy tiny sandwiches, that is more doable than pastry.

On Welcome to Club Bisexual, Dr. Teddy Altman! You Can Hang Your Scrubs in the Back:

The Teddy Altman Bisexual Award to aj:

INCREDIBLE. I got behind on Grey’s a few seasons ago but boy howdy if this won’t get me back in the saddle. SHERRI SAUM????? BISEXUAL TEDDY ALTMAN???? Ready to get my heart broken by Shondaland again.

On Pop Culture Fix: “Killing Eve” Is Coming Back Early, a Little More Sapphic Stalking as a Treat:

The Error In Judgement Award to Caitlin:

callie and george??? look, george o’malley was a sweet boy gone too soon but he and callie should never have gotten married, a fact acknowledged by literally the entire cast

And on “Hitmen” Review: Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins Trade Poached Pears for Contract Killing in This Silly Comedy Series:

The Hats Off Award to Gilbert and Sally:

Wow! I think my first question has to be, does Jamie wear that hat for the whole series? Otherwise, bring it on.

And the 2020 Award to Leora Spitzer:

2020 has been full of unexpected plot twists but Mel and Sue teaming up as contract killers has got to be up there.

  1. Hi QG ! Hi all.

    I have a lot of Zoom meetings for which I have to look nice and presentable for the upper third of my body, but I can rock sweatpants, shorts, pj’s, or just plain underwear below-camera and no one knows. Or no one knew, before now.
