Hey Did You See That Redesign – I Mean Comment Award?

Hi! Notice anything different around here? We redecorated for 2011. You know what else? Haviland and her “backing band” created a song out of one of Riese’s old poems. You might want to find a way to get that on your ipod.

This week we also gave you the best/worst of everything in 2010 which includes pictures of everyone as cats, so. Also here are the top ten sweatpants you should be wearing (hint: university sweatpants are the best! I’m wearing some right now). In fact, I’d say 85% of my life is spent wearing sweatpants.

DeAnne Smith is back with fears of a lesbian invasion and also invites you to share your favourite “academic” word!

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

Emily has written 100 articles for us.
