The Comment Awards Enjoys Tea and a Good Book

As y’all are reading this I’m probably asleep. This has been a WEEK, let me tell you. I’ve flown across the country, coast to coast, twice. Had three job interviews. AND did a two-hour Spartan workout to get this less than in shape body ready for the Spartan Race I’m doing right before A-Camp. My body and mind have never been more exhausted. The only things that got me through were this Youtube video my wife sent me in the middle of the night and Autostraddle dot com.

This week on Autostraddle dot com things were off the chain, through the roof, over the moon, etc.

Rachel had some great advice, one bisexual to another.

Sinclair Sexsmith steamed up your monitor and quite possibly your pants with a new View From The Top. It’s about tease and denial, which is more than just a really superb band name.

Once again, Isabel has Googled things for you. When will you die? Isabel has the answers.

Carley Rae Jepsen has a new music video that is gay gay GAY. Mey sums up all that gay.

One time I met Leisha Hailey in real life. She was very nice and took a picture with me and was super sweet about how embarrassed I was to ask Leisha Hailey for a picture. Here she is in a tool belt! You’re welcome.

If you are a Queer Girl and ever thought about going to Baton Rouge, Sydney has some info for ya.

  1. Bren! I clicked on that Spartan link and that might actually change my life, uh, summer! I’ve been looking for reasons to run and some spice to put into my workouts! Thanks!
    And also, Andrea:

    Have a good weekend everyone!

      Also check out their “Work Out of the Day” section. I like those because A) I don’t have to think of different things to do each day, someone can just tell me and B) they can almost always be scaled up or down depending on the amount of time you have in your schedule for that day. It’s very You Do You.

    • Well thank you! I can’t take all the credit though. Part of it also has to go to my constantly malfunctioning gay-dar.

  2. I won a comment award! My life is now complete.

    Also, Erin, Queer Yoga sounds like the best thing in the world and I want to be a part of it.

  3. Thank you for the comment award, although if I hadn’t fallen asleep, what I actually would have commented is this:
