The Comment Awards are Thankful for Autostraddle’s Brilliant Commenters

Hello Holigay Shoppers!

I hope everyone had a successful Thanksgiving! I ran a 10K Turkey Trot. MC Hammer was there. Also I was supposed to bring rolls to my wife’s uncle’s house, but I messed them up. Who messes up the easiest thing to bring to a pot luck? This guy!  To add insult to injury Carrie was not on board with my idea to somehow fashion microwaveable soft pretzels appear like rolls. So no rolls! I hope you had rolls and good times with friends/family.

This week was just an outpouring of thankfulness. You told us what you’re thankful for. We told you what we were thankful for. There was a lot of overlap and at one point pictures of adorable dogs. Really, it’s not to be missed. Isabel assisted some of us non-sporty spices with some useful things to yell at football.

Riese gave some good advice on how to get out of the house and interact with humans and not be weird about it. I, personally, have printed it out, highlighted it, laminated it and taped it on the fridge. Carolyn let us know what people fantasized about back in the day. Molly followed CEO and founder of Sharpe Suiting, Leon Wu, around for a day and photographed it. It was fascinating and gorgeous.

New merch was announced. And more new merch was announced!

  1. YAASS! I’m thankful for my comment award. I will cherish this more than when I got a medal for winning my school’s Geography Bee in 7th grade which my mother still talks about, but doesn’t mention that I graduated with honors from a top art school or attended a prestigious MBA program. Well, I mean, I did drop out of said MBA program, but still.

  2. Hi so I’m pitching an article about Pintertesting Fashion Hacks for A-Camp in the spring, and yes I can use A-Camp merc for that :D

    • OMG YES. I tried to do that with your “ameyzing” comment above! I’m glad I’m not alone on that.
