Hi there, cats and kittens! You hanging in there? We made it through the week!
This week, in our continued takeover of all sci-fi franchises since Ghostbusters, Doctor Who is a woman!
Awwwwww, love is not a lie.

Nora talked about bodies, and the clothes we put on them. So many feels.
In a fandom? Need to carry your shit? There’s a fanny pack for that.
Here are the long and winding career paths of Autostraddle writers! I think my biggest takeaway from this was that Laneia once quit a job by walking away on her break, something I still aspire to do.
Need some swimwear? Shannon’s got you covered!

Woo hoo! You really, really like me.
Not only did I get an award, but I made it to the article tagline. Woohoo!
Comment Award squared!
(Once in junior high, my friends and I liked that song so much that we listened to it for an entire sleepover – hours and hours and hours, on repeat. Shannon’s parents must have wanted to KILL us.)
Was that a poly-award for the so much arms? *pumps fist*
Why go for double when you can have triple-entendre?
you’re a beautiful triad
I used to work in a hotel. Once I was training this guy and he said he had to go get something from his car. He never came back.
see this just connotes a level of badassery and devil-may-care that I have never accomplished in my life.
And the confusion… I was like “dude never came back. I wonder if the car that just drove off was his. Let me call security. Yep, that was him. Oh well, I wonder what’s for lunch today”
The closest I’ve ever gotten to this was when nine of us employed a crappy trinket shop at the mall all quit on the same day in protest of new store policies. They replaced us and carried on like nothing had happened.
employed *at, arrrgh
I really feel the pain of your commitment to correct spelling/grammar.
Also, punctuation in texting forever.
Are we talking about crazy ways we quit our jobs? One time, my manager at Jack in the Box threw a fit because I changed my nametag to “Batman” (after many other things). I mean who wouldn’t want burger and fries from Batman? So my co-worker and I staged this horrible lemonade “accident” where she tripped and it landed all over our manager, and we walked out together for a “break”. And that’s how we really “hit the road Jack”.
I would rather order my burger and fries from batman, obviously
I was once served by She-Ra at Sonics, sooooo much cooler than Batman!
This is phenomenal.
True superheroes of our time.
I’m glad my guy just left without any “lemonade accidents”
ahh thank you! I think this means I’m obligated to make and wear the shirt in real life. See you at the Met :)
Oh definitely, as soon as I’m in NY again.
So, pineapple on pizza. I vote yes.
I mean I feel like we settled this one? But I do very much want to know: bagels with cream cheese, or bagels with butter?
but also yeah pineapple on pizza for lyfe
update: they are actually talking about pineapple pizza at work right now. sausage and pineapple? olives and pineapple?
now they’re talking about world pizza. carmen is it true they put green peas on pizza in brazil?
We put everything and anything on pizza. And then we do pizza rotation. Kinda like meat rotation on Brazilian bbq but with pizza
wait you mean like a rotisserie?
Also we do all you can eat rotation anything.
Empanadas rotation, appetizers rotation, pasta, sushi, etc etc etc
Not like a rotisserie. Waiters walking around with different kinds of pizza/sushi/empanadas/etc and coming to your table to offer you whatever it is they’re carrying
And you flip the red/green disk to show if you’re still eating, you’re done or taking a break
ohhhh thank you I was very confused.
This sounds like heaven? Not only do you not have to make your own food or wash your own dishes, you don’t even have to do the work of choosing something from a menu.
#OlderStraddle field trip? Yes? Yes!
I don’t quite understand this restaurant situation but it sounds AMAZING
QG, you’ll get it when you see it but anyway you don’t need to understand, you just need to enjoy.
One of us! One of us!
Usually cream cheese but I love butter and will never reject it
I guess it depends on the bagel flavor
oh my god, chandra.
you cannot put butter under cream cheese on a bagel, what are we? animals?
(well yes, humans are animals), but
YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME
Not even just butter and cream cheese – butter and cream cheese AND JAM. (Oh my.)
chandra i cannot
That’s ok, more for me
This sounds like a lot of work but I admire your commitment to multiple condiments
Why must people taint the goodness of bagels with stuff. Why mess with perfection???
Use a spoon as your vehicle, don’t waste a bagel.
This comment offends me on a primordial level
Because you searched your feelings and know it to be true.
PFF. Listen, don’t even try projecting your weird ungarnished-chewy-cardboard tendencies onto me
I have been known to eat plain bagels so I’m gonna support you on this one
yeah but i think Lex is actually eating (whispers) PLAIN CREAM CHEESE
Also toasted cinnamon raisin bagels store bought still too perfect to tarnish with butter but I can’t eat them either at current.
Wheat isn’t the only thing baked goods that can be mean to guts y’all.
Butter rolled! Chandra!
One time I lived with a chinese housemate who had never had toast before. So we introduced her first to toast and butter, and later on jam. At which point whe started her own creations, quite memorably jam, butter and lettuce on toast.
Also she once tried to kill us all in a house fire by defrosting pork chops in the toaster.
Miss that girl.
I ate cucumber and apricot jam sandwiches for a while. Don’t substitute the apricot jam with marmalade though, it’s a rookie mistake.
this actually sounds delicious, snaelle.
Wait, let me be sure I’ve got this right – you are ok with the extraterrestrial combination of cucumbers and apricot jam, but the totally normal and delicious pairing of butter with cream cheese/peanut butter/etc. gets a no.
Also on the topic of cucumbers and substitutions, I once got halfway through a chocolate zucchini loaf recipe before realizing I was out of zucchini, so I used cucumbers instead. Do not do this.
hahaha i mean yes? i love cucumbers more than life tho so that might be part of it.
What about butter + cream cheese + cucumbers then? Or! Even better, butter + brie + cucumbers on a baguette. Now I’m hungry
You’ve been BUTTER ROLLED
Also @chandra I NEVER NEVER said no butter. My family would disown me, and they would probably revoke my French citizenship.
Butter with everything! Always!!!
@snaelle YES! Preach it!!
Ok there is officially something VERY wrong with all of all you for liking cream cheese. That stuff is horrid! What’s REALLY yummy tho is a toasted bagel with butter and garlic salt. So savory and buttery and garlicy.
As for pineapple on pizza personally I love it. When I worked at Domino’s I on most of the days I opened I would make a breakfast for my opening crew that was egg, 4 different kinds of cheese, pineapple, sausage, bacon, veggies, and a sprinkling of the garlic stuff that goes on the bread sticks. Also made and amazing BBQ chicken pizza with bbq sauce, 4 different kinds of cheese, pineapple, bacon, cut up chicken kickers (their boneless chicken is a spicy breading), and a sprinkling of garlic. Now I’m hungry lol
Kaitlin your breakfast sounds pretty good. Also it’s really nice to make breakfast for the crew. Thanks for doing that from a former crew member that used to benefit from breakfast
You’re welcome Carmen! It isn’t just nice but good business. You get the best out of your employees when they feel valued and pizza is small price to pay for that =^.^=
Bagel with plain or veggie cream cheese here in NY. There are a very few delis that will still honor the request, “Bagel wid a schmear,” meaning a smear of cream cheese. Or, if there’s no access to cream cheese, then yes, butter – but ONLY on a toasted bagel so it melts. (Cream cheese can pair with a bagel toasted or untoasted.)
But… clearly, as evidenced below, y’all do y’all.
Is this what it feels like to be a style icon????
Also now I feel it was totally worth the 20 minutes it took me to work out how to post an image (again).
I’m gonna stick this award in my heart and carry it forever.
I feel like the matching neon of the bags really brought this one home.
I carry your award with me(i carry it in. my heart)i am never without it(anywhere. i go you go,my dear
Does your heartpack coordinate with your fanny pack and backpack too?
I can confirm I am neon both inside and out.
If Mia Hamm is above the commenters bed does that mean Mia Hamm is a top?
She absolutely is and I would totally let her #NinetiesQuestionsAnswered
OMG! I’m officially a Spice Girls Wannabe! I get to be Baby Spice – no one else gets to or else… or else I’ll continue this bagel thread for an endless eternity… because everyone knows cinnamon/sugar and colored sprinkle bagels are where it’s at.
lol saga’s here outgaying us all with rainbow bagels <3
Ummmmmm I think you are describing a donut
Chandra, would that be a “Dogel?” Or a “Bagenut?”
It can be called anything as long as it has butter on it
You can only be Baby Spice if I get to be Ginger Spice!
Do you think they called their boobs spice racks?
OMG I hope so!
If so, I’m signing up for culinary school like right fucking now.
Thank you :) I will note that I can take requests for other athletes to be included in the list so when time travel is invented I can use my powers for good.
Summer Sanders, please.
I remember watching Summer Sanders when she hosted Figure it Out. Had no idea then that she was a beast swimmer. Better appreciation as an adult lol
You would figure that Alex would have some lady loving leanings being around so many queers with the USWNT. I think there could still be a chance
I had forgotten about Gabriela! Bless you for the reminder and for the minute I needed to take to collect myself after that Google search.
me just getting home from work: “woah! 89 comments on the comment awards thread?? Let’s see what’s going on in here…. hmmm… it only looks like 10 or 12 comments…. OH @carmensandiego resumed the pineapple on pizza debate.” THATS where all the comments are coming from.
We’re currently at more comments than the Friday Open Thread. And yes, it is a race.
We will win!!
also ‘bend it like mia’ and ‘the sisterhood of the travelling rolls award’ QUEER GIRRRRRLLLL <3 I'm suddenly reminded of all the queer feels these movies stoked in me as a young person
The award names were inspired as usual. I mean, we are spoiled, really
Mommi spoils us
@queergirl is mommi.
OMG you guys
I ? you
There just were so many arms all at once
Whenever I see a post with an unusually high comment count, and it’s not a biphobic flame war or lost MRA trolls, I assume it must be a bunch of Christo-fascists getting so irate about Easter eggs that they turn into dancing hotdogs.
I’m beyond delighted that in this case it’s because of a serious community investigation into bagels.
The dancing hotdog! Now I’m all nostalgic.
I really liked the macaronis dancing Macarena
In this remote Japanese village train station, there is a dancing hotdog happily entertaining you while you wait. Watching a hotdog smoke a Marlboro is strangely satisfying…
Bagels, toasted with butter, herbed low fat cream cheese, snipped chives, smoked salmon and capers. Oh, now please!
One more for team butter & cream cheese, yesss
Have you tried them toasted with butter and cream cheese mixed with chopped dates and chopped walnuts with a drizzle of honey.
This is surely what heaven looks like. Oh, and all the toilet paper rolls are put on the right way.
Peanut butter bagels from down the street of my eventual house :) It’s lovely & the prices in their are ridiculous (on the low side) :) And the lady knows what I want cos I always have it.
But do you also put butter on them?
I don’t but I’m sure she would. I don’t like two ‘glues’ on/spreads on so I only have one spread then something else like bananas or something that needs to be stuck on.
Are y’all sure you aren’t confusing Mia Hamm with Brandi Chastain’s iconic jersey-less WC-winning-PK celebration?
OMG Rachel W you’re so right!! ? BRANDI CHASTAIN. Bahahahahahahaha omg my older than me and sportier than me wife is going to have a field day with this.
I was 13 when that match was played and definitely had the poster in my room for years and years. I am pretty sure I parted with it during my massive “moving abroad” yard sale, but part of me hopes it is still hiding in the closet (teehee) of my parents’ home because even at 31 I would put that back on my wall. But framed to make it classy.
Hope your older/sportier wife has a means of watching the Euros. No shirtless goal celebrations yet, but definitely some queer ladies on these pitches. :)
ps. My parents never let me go to Bible camp! in retrospect, I’m v. grateful.
I don’t watch sportsball either.. (CLEARLY) so, Rachel W what are the Euros?? ? They sound delightful. Also, yes, good on your parents for not letting you go to bible camp. There weren’t nearly enough shirtless women’s soccer posters to make up for the rest of the experience.
omg how could we?
I don’t watch sportsball but didn’t somebody else do this recently too?
I relinquish my comment award to Rachel W!
