The Comment Awards Throws a Mean-ish Spiral


One of the best things about moving back south is more time with our families. This week we got lots of time with our niece and nephew. The nephew and I were throwing his football around and he said “you’re more athletic than my dad… You don’t look like it, but you are.” Which I think is sort of a compliment. Out of the mouth of babes… Also the niece put on a “Popstar Shark Concert” complete with costumes, which was exactly as amazing as that sounds.

This post Holigay time brings out the best at Autostraddle dot com.

Is love a lie? The debate goes on, in which Heather and Nikki rip our collective hearts out.

Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor continue to be the best. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for New Year’s.

Carol sequels as imagined by Erin and all of you.

Hillary wore some pretty great pantsuits this year.

Sad news about Carrie Fisher.

  1. Yay! To be honest, I thought of “Glove, Actually” about a month ago, when I was watching Love, Actually. My thanks go to the awesome AS writers for providing the perfect set up for it with the Carol Sequels post!

  2. For fans of Mister/Miss Kitty Fantastico, I can announce that they are doing very well. They come running when they hear me and loves food and neck skritches (they just let me pet them this morning). They still live in one of our outbuildings, but I’ve insulated a puppy carrier with some leftover roof insulation and stuffed it with fleece blankets and Mister/Miss Kitty Fantastico has happily claimed it for their own.
