The Comment Awards Want To Eat You Up

Hi there! This week I visited my hometown with my girlfriend and we went flying in a hand-made airplane only slightly larger than a boxcar. Now we’re on an island in Maine with the world’s slowest internet. What have you been up to?

It’s been in a delectable week here with recipes for lobster citrus saladO.C.-themed ice cream and Laneia’s thoughts on potato soup and orgasms (also animal crackers!). We reclaimed the glory of sandwiches with a nostalgic open thread, a playlistan ode to my pantry and predictions about what your most treasured sandwich says about you (hint: club sandwiches = threesomes). Then Riese took us behind the scenes of her bake sale, Lizz liveblogged the Emmys and Meredith told us how she went queer for craft beer. Drink up and read on!
