  1. when i had a blackberry my phone used to yell TYYYRAA MAIIILLLLLLL (AHHHHHHHHH!) every time i got a picture message. i miss those days. i wish someone would send me pictures of nacho. i wish someone would give me nachos but then i will have to be a plus side model and miss jay will give me attitude about my signature walk in panel. oh, cute dog.

  2. I’ve never had a puppy before, but I’ve successfully kept a plant alive for nearly a year, so!

    When I get a puppy I hope it smiles with it’s eyes too. That is a skill that takes you places for sure.

  3. So true story, Autostraddle is blocked at my new job under the filter “mature content” (read: lesbosexy). Coming home to videos and comment threads like this make it all okay. This whole fucking thread is a comment award. Let’s be honest. You all rock.
