The Comment Awards Want To Play Dress Up With You

Happy Friday, goblins! I’m throwing a Halloween party this weekend and have put more thought into the decorations than my Master’s thesis. Are you as excited about  the holiday as we are? Staff imagined what a real life lesbian haunted house would be like and Cara’s witchy More Than Words will turn you into the most cunning linguist at the costume party. And after a wildly successful campaign by Stef, Carly and Robin are officially going to dress up as Gomez and Morticia Addams this year! Lizz and Vanessa are sticking fall foliage walks and doing it in style.

In other news, Yvonne managed to visit the Texas State Fair and NOT eat any fried food, Mey had another brilliant comic recommendation and International Autostraddle Meet-Up Week is finally here! Get out there an meet some ‘straddlers in real life! But first read this…

  1. Kathryn can’t be here in person this evening to accept her award, but I”m on skype with her now and will accept it on her behalf. She thanks her Mom for pushing her out of the OTHER swirling vortex, and English teacher in school who taught her all the words and stuff.
