The Comment Awards Just Wants Clean Towels

Our cat, Ceasar, has discovered how fun it is to grab toilet paper in his mouth and then run through the house with his thirty-foot long TP cape. He has also discovered how to pull towels down from hooks with one swat of a paw. I tried to thwart him by using a binder clip to secure the towel to the hook. He only saw this as an intriguing challenge — one that he overcame, nearly destroying the towel in the process.

Other things that were intriguing this week:

Brittani Nichols wrote a movie and she stars in it, and so does Jaskia Nicole, AND Robin Romer shot it AND Carly Usdin directs the whole thing. It also involves kale. Basically this is the gayest movie ever made.

Trans Visibility Day was this week. Gabrielle jumped out of a freaking plane TWICE, Luna loves herself, Jen Richards talks North Carolina and Devan is surer and surer. Also Mey performed The Vagina Monologues. (Microsoft Word, your patriarchy is showing. When I misspelled “vaginawp_poststhe corrections it offered me were “Virginiawp_postsand “virginal”).

Tegan and Sara’s cats are notably more docile than Ceasar.

Isabel Googled some things for you. It was eye-opening.

Riese found out why we aren’t having sex. Not you and me “we,wp_postsbut you know what I mean.

Erin reimagined the boy/girl bands of our youth.

  1. I can’t believe I just won an award because of Amelia Bedelia, my favorite kid’s books ever. Oh man, if I could go back and talk to my younger self… well it probably wouldn’t be about that. But still, this makes me happy.

  2. Thank you everyone. It has made me happy to see that people enjoyed the ridiculous infographic although I guess ultimately we should be thanking the legion of L&D obsessives with poor reading skills that are its raison d’être
