The Comment Awards Emojis The Heck Out of Y’all

Hey, Smiley Faces!

This week our kitten discovered that he can jump on countertops. It’s a brave new world for the little guy.

This week on Autostraddle dot com so many brilliant, brave souls.

Riese undertook the research project of your dreams and made an Alice Pieszecki Chart of old Hollywood. And while you’re at it, Laneia found pics of queer/butch humans from the 1930s.

It’s hot out. Ali has some ways to cool down with alcohol involved. Speaking of alcohol.

So many gender presentations and the beachwear to go with them.

Ali found some really cool tech toys. I really want to buy my nephew that microscope, but really only so I can use it.

Rachel and Yvonne watched D.E.B.S. for the first time ever. The results are epic.

  1. Is it really Friday already? I was starting to wonder why I was seeing a Comment Awards post on a Thursday. I obviously spend too much time on AS and I should have just went to bed instead of staying up. Come to think of it, I should have known it was a brand new day just by the sun rise.

    • When I say I was on the wrong parts of the internet in 2007, I mean it.

      I hadn’t discovered fanfic, but I do remember printing off a couple of chapters of Sense & Sensibility really really small and in purple because we were low on ink. I just had an overwhelming need to read something about women and I didn’t want to wait until I could get to the library the next day.

      Mugglenet would have been a dream.

  2. Oh my goodness that’s me! I got an award! FUCKING YES. I’m going to put it next to my Most Improved Player of 2013 award from my rugby team because that is how proud I am.
    And in three years time I’ll win something and say ‘I’ll put it next to my Comment Award…’

    :D :D :D

  3. I’m kinda glad I wasn’t introduced to mugglenet fanfiction until today, because my life might’ve gone very different if someone had pointed me in that direction in 2007.
    For one, I’d probably still be in College…
