The Comment Awards Is Two Hours Late for a Mandatory Meeting


My usually foolproof system of calendar reminders and reminders of reminders broke down today. I didn’t realize I had a mandatory meeting at 8am this morning until around 10:15am. I’m sure my co-workers took copious notes.

This week on Autostraddle dot com, where no one is late ever, so many articles were posted punctually.

Gift guides this week have you covered if you star in you identify as Danny Zuko, a feminist, a cat lover, a comic lover, a photographer. I think that’s just about everybody.

Our resident Lesbrarian has some fantasy books you might want to curl up with.

Ali’s dog continues to be on brand.

Also Cate Blanchett! And Comments!

    • I think my New Year’s resolution for 2017 shall be to respond to everything with Kate McKinnon gifs.

    • Seconding! So heartwarming. And the moral of the story is obviously that magical thinking works :)

  1. I don’t know where else to put this, but I think it’s too funny to not share.
    Currently I am knee deep in finals, meaning nobody has gotten ANY sleep.
    My best friend just turned to me and says “Isn’t there some old-timey lesbian saying? Like a bush in the hand is worth two birds or something?”

    I laughed in his face for about 5 minutes before correcting him.

    In other news can we actually make that or something similar a saying?
