Happy Winter Solstice, chipmunks! How are you celebrating? By watching science trump apocalypse-fearing weirdos yet again? By rewarding yourself with a $7 Au Bon Pain cookie after braving holiday airport crowds? I'm mainlining egg nog lattes while furiously debating whether to attend my high school reunion tomorrow.
This last week of holiday-centric posts left no stone unturned. Kristen took some holigay profile pics for your pleasure, Laura taught us how to wrap presents like a boss and Brittani had us Cat Powering through Christmas.
In other news, older conservatives like us now, Esther Zinn made a great app for queer girls and Lizz dispensed winter fashion tips for the frozen femme. Readers and team members talked about their experiences with guns and gun culture. Our college lesbian correspondents finished their first semester and are heading home for a holiday break. Are you too? Bundle up and travel safe, okay? I'll keep the hot cocoa warm for you.
