The Comment Awards Will Throw Their Pie For You

Hi teacups! I’m feeling clever today because I figured out how to laminate a bunch of stuff without using a laminating machine. This must be how Hillary Clinton feels every day.

This week Kate’s OITNB recapping marathon hit the halfway mark. Episodes 106 and 107 are up and will satisfy your need for more Alex gifs! Because Kate hates sleep she also found time to interview Jamie Babbit. She’s the director responsible for But I’m A Cheerleader, The Itty Bitty Titty Committee and episodes of Gilmore Girls and Gossip Girl plus other queer media you probably love.

Speaking of queer media, Riese made list of 15 queer female tv characters that surprised us this summer.  In news relevant to us, doctors may have found a cure for cat allergies! That’s right, in the future you may not have to use a lint roller before you hang out with Vanessa.

Queen of the kitchen Kristen wrote about making perfect popcorn (HINT: it means fewer unpopped kernels!). This is awesome news for my stomach and the space between my couch cushions. And finally, the next best thing to making out with Megan Rapinoe is dressing like her, right? Right?

  1. YAY! I’m so happy!

    *Clears throat*

    I want to thank drinking whiskey ginger ale while “checking up” on my crush’s facebook, looking OITNB gifs tumblr while listening to “She Keeps me Warm” on repeat on my itunes, having too many feels and oh and my lesbian tears of longing.

    You guys just understand me, you really, really, understand me.


    Seriously I need to ask this girl out…*checks AS archive for advice*
