The Comment Awards Climbs A Mountain

Hey Gal Pals!

Today is the day before I leave for pre-camp. It is also the day that the apostrophe key stopped working on my keyboard. So this feels like a good place to pause life, visit a mountain top for a bit and come back refreshed and ready to deal with that apostrophe key situation like a boss. Chelsey will be here next week to round up the comments of the week. Presumably all of her keys are working properly!

My main source of anxiety right now is that I haven’t packed a thing. And it looks like I’m not the only one. Procrastinators unite! And if you’re like me and have no idea what to wear to the Camp Met Gala, Audrey has come to our rescue.

Erin reimagines the workshops and panels that happen at A-Camp.

Maddie has gone through every Autostraddle playlist ever and found the best ones.

Katherine wrote a beautiful essay describing all the families that could have been and all the families that can be.

Don’t forget to drop the details for Pride Month meet-ups. And Riese found a few things to dress up those meet-ups.

  1. Allow me to give Carolyn another standing ovation.
    And Querr Girl I can’t wait to meet you at camp

  2. Well, I’m gonna be singing “Do You Wanna Build a Homo” all day now, so thank you for that. <3

  3. Cat exchanges yesterday (just yesterday):

    GF: I’m going to go change my shirt since I am covered in cat.
    Me: Thank you.
    GF (in clean shirt): Have you taken your meds?
    Me: Going.

    (Later that evening)
    GF: Why are you petting the cat? Stop touching the cat!
    Me: Because if I stop, he’s going to roll in my hair.
    GF: Oh.
    Me: Ow!
    GF: He just bit you? You turned him on. Go wash your hands and STOP PETTING the cat. :::removes cat to far side of sofa:::

    The cat struggles are real.
