Bonjour, pumpkincitas! How’s your Fall going so far? I’ve been celebrating by listening to a lot of Chris Pureka and my nose has been rejoicing in the glory of my new neti pot. As soon as I can taste things again I am making Carolyn’s bean dip, but in the meantime I’ll just watch Episode 4 of Unicorn Plan-it on repeat. Laughing is good for your sinuses! This week in teevee, Brittani and Lizz talked about basically every show ever and was even funnier than the actual television. We’ve got last week’s winners and this week’s televisionary caption contest, 50 pictures of Amber Heard, and Riese’s Glee-cap. Jess interviewed Uh Huh Her’s (UHH if you’re savvy) Camila Grey, Carmen praised Eileen Myles, and Sebastian explained the Standards of Care version 7.0 (hint: it’s way better). We’ve got two playlists for you: one about menstruation and another for lezzing out. Marni and Ashley tackled your HELP needs this week, you can win tickets to see Deanne Smith in Boston, Austostraddle’s coming to NYU, and we’ve got September and October’s calendar girls! And now the group of the week:
A while ago we shined a spotlight on a group for underage Autostraddlers and presented them with the very shiny and prestigious Group of the Week award. It’s only fair that I mention this group for those of you over 30. You aren’t alone! I promise there are at least 17 of you.
