Hello my darling Straddlers, and welcome to another Friday Open Thread!
This week we’ve got two surprises for you!
Surprise #1: We’ve fixed and simplified the way you post a video in the comment section! You may remember last week Reneice hosted a very steamy video queue party in the Friday Open Thread, but we were all having trouble getting our videos to post. Well, we took the issue to Cee, and they fixed it right away! Not only that, but they made it WAY easier – you don’t have to deal with an embed code at all anymore! All you have to do is post a YouTube link on its own line in the comment and boom! The video will appear. MAGIC.
Surprise #2: THIS IS A VIRTUAL HOLIGAY MEET-UP, WELCOME! Yes, it’s true – we know not all of you will be able to attend an IRL Autostraddle Holigay Meet-Up, so we’re having a virtual one right here, right now. I brought Nutella stuffed brown butter salted chocolate chip cookies, I’m in my most festive holigay outfit (black dress / black shoes / black cape / red lips, duh), and I’m ready to hear all about your lives. Is it snowing where you are? How are your finals going? What did you buy your cousin who is hard to shop for this year? Any big changes in your life? Go on any cute dates recently? Did you attend an AS Holigay Meet-Up? How was it? Do you know how good your hair looks today? Your hair looks so good today.
Grab a cup of eggnog and a cookie and enjoy yourself in the comments section. Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating, and Happy Holigays to all – I’m so glad we’re all here together.
