Hello, friendly friends! This is Dina (you may recognize me from “the comments”) filling in for Emily for an extra special Australian Christmas edition of Hey! Did You See That Comment? Friday. Upon writing this it is already Friday, due to the Australianness mentioned above. My presents are all badly wrapped and my pumpkin pie looks like it was attacked by a dragon, but anyway.
This week, DADT repeal happened. Apparently we were very excited because we talked about it a lot. We also talked about the new moving picture Black Swan a lot (again, I guess?), probably because Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis are hot or we all secretly wanted to be ballerinas when we were kids or something.
We also talked about how dropping out of college is generally not the end of one’s life. Who knew? Not my high school guidance counsellor, that’s for sure.
Finally we learned that spiders in Australia are heinously scary, and that gender roles aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
So wherever you are, whoever you’re with, whichever season you happen to be in, raise a glass to your queermo Internets buddies and read you some comment awards!

Just ten minutes ago I wanted to rip off the head of a Santa Claus mannequin in the Apple Store window and throw it at an innocent passerby. But now I just want to hug everyone and blow sparkles out of every orifice in my body. So thanks for ruining my standard holiday scowl and putting a smile on this scrooge’s face. Merry fuckin’ Christmas.
