The Comment Awards Really Get You

Good news! I didn’t die at the gym. I even made a friend. We bonded over our in-athleticism – always the last ones to finish a thing. At one point the trainer told the group to go run half a mile. My new friend and I got so far behind we lost the pack, got lost and ended up running closer to a mile. Silver lining though! By the time we got back the burpee part of the workout was over and we didn’t have to do any.

This week on Autostraddle dot com was a good workout for our hearts and minds.

Rachel is on some pretty questionable mailing lists. Molly went to the beach and took pictures.

Lynsey has tips for sexting – a thing I will never do for fear of accidentally messaging my boss or my mom. But you do you.

Sinclair Sexsmith walks into a bar and… ponders finding your other half. Spoiler alert: it’s like finding a lovely needle in a pile of lovely needles.

Stef takes our ears back to the local roller rink of our youths. Mine was called Skateland and it was run by a lady named Brenda who took requests for a quarter.

Also Baby T. Rex! And Comments!

  1. Bren! I needed this! <3

    Happy Friday and may all of your brains be way gayer than Gayland every day of the week ;-)

  2. Thank you, Bren! I woke up feeling disgruntled today, but Autostraddle has successfully re-gruntled me. <3
