Andi did one of her weekend fun stuff roundups on Friday the 29th in which she tips readers to cool/fun/silly stuff they might like. This week, she brought up three comics she’s been reading, talked a bit about Wynonna Earp, a show on SyFy she’s been watching, and also provided a 5-song playlist off Spotify of songs she’s been obsessing with this week.

And on Saturday, Erin Saluta did a blog about breakups in lesbian fiction. Erin is our resident non-writer, but she’s an avid reader of lesfic, and always comes up with great things to discuss.
