The Comment Awards Verb Adjective-y Nouns

Helloooooo earthlings. I’m just sitting here eating peanut butter and chocolate chips with a spoon because I am craving sugar but don’t even have enough stuff in my kitchen to make Carolyn’s three ingredient peanut butter cookies. Remember those? Anyway, how are you you guys? Do you have a pen pal yet? So far 700 of you have signed up and I wouldn’t want anyone missing out. This week, we visited the home of my great-grandparents and flourishing dyke culture, St. Louis as well as Taipei, which I have never been to. We recapped Lip Service, Glee, more Glee and even more Glee. No Man’s Land built things with crates and our very own Hurricane Katrina was on the most recent episode of The Peculiar Kind. We opened up registration for September A-Camp and put out a call for scholarship applications. Carolyn made bruschetta out of eggplant like the crafty little elf she is, Gabby wrote you your very own sneaker guide, Interrupted Girl experimented with sobriety and Carmen interviewed a member of the Biola Queer Underground. We’ve got new swag for sale over in the store and we’re looking for your contributions to June’s theme: The Way We Were.

The Road Rules Award to Maul : “Officially my new favorite tumblr. “A true feminist simply knows the cure for Alzheimer’s disease, possibly because it’s yoga.”
side note: I’m supposed to be looking for a car right now, but every time I go to type in I get 4 letters in and wind up here…maybe i’ll just start biking everywhere. [IS THIS FEMINIST?]”

  1. That healthy looking individual comment is so being stolen and used when I can’t say what I am actually thinking about a hot woman. Gracías MelChan! lol

  2. note from friend who coined “live every week like it’s period week”:

    YAY! I am honored to be recognized by the lesbian community :) Also! Now I can copyright it?

  3. Are we gonna get an email reply re: our penpals? Or am I just going to one day walk out to my mailbox and find a tiny bundle of gay joy waiting for me?

    • While I wouldn’t object to that, I think we’re supposed to get emailed around the eleventh of June, so as to give everybody who wants in time to sign up (and the AS staff time for setup on the back end of things!).
