Hi, pumpkin-spiced eggnog pies! It’s time for the Friday Open Thread. A time for misandry. A time for GIFs. A time for telling me all about your week / activity partners / pets / plants / dinner / holiday plans through misandrist GIFs (and also words and photos and YouTube links aplenty).
I am spending a last weekend (for 2014) visiting my girlfriend in LA before flying home to Montreal for a few days before heading to Toronto for family and then maybe Hamilton for friends and then back to Toronto for the winter holidays.
As a result I have the biggest hangover, not from drinking but from working super hard to finish all the things I need to finish before the possibility that I will need to talk to more than one other human or be on a plane without wifi or “relax” comes up. (Also from sleep deprivation and an ongoing series of stress headaches.) I have not finished yet but I will, dammit, so when I am reading and ignoring friends and loved ones it will be for fun instead of work.
Anyway I wanna hear all about what you’re doing to prep for the holidays! Did you get a hair cut (and can I see it)? Do you decorate or emphatically not decorate or seal your windows with saran wrap against the cold? Do you do an enormous grocery shop of non-perishables so you don’t have to leave the house again until March? Have you been avoiding the world by watching Gilmore Girls? Have you left the house this month? Is it nice out there?
I also want to hear your feelings about winter or working too hard or travel or fighting valiantly for armrests or embracing/avoiding family or seasonal beverages and desserts or anything else! Let’s hang out.
How To Post A Photo In The Comments:
1. Find a photo! This is the easy part. Find a photo on the web, right click (on a Mac, control+click), hit “Copy Image URL” and then…
2. Code it in to your comment! Use the following code, and use a DIRECT LINK to the image. Your image link should end in .JPG or .GIF or .PNG or .CallMeWhateverYouWant even. I don’t care, but it should be an image suffix!
How To Post A Video In The Comments, Too:
1. Find a video on YouTube or Vimeo or WHATEVER and click “embed.” Copy that code, but first make sure it’s for 640 px wide or less. If your player is too large, it will not display properly.
2. Copy the code and paste it directly into your comment.
3. Go forth and jam.
