Good morning, pastries and turnovers! Listen: I am having an issue with boots.
Yes, boots! See, I am an Old. (An Eternal, if you will.) Once upon a time, we didn’t have ankle boots. We had tall boots that were layered over skinny jeans (love the pants, hate the name). Now I have these duck boots for the rain, and they end at my ankle, and I’ve got no idea what to do with my jeans! Do I cuff them above the boot? Then my ankles get cold! Do I just give up and pull them down over the boot? Then they get wet, like the bootcut jeans of my high school years! I have never been able to figure this out satisfactorily. Suggestions welcome.
This week, Casey knows which wintery queer book you should read this season.
Have you joined A+ yet? Thirteen Days of A+ Returns is all happening now!
Also! There’s a new holiday miniseries, RITUALS! Get excited to read nine pieces throughout this month that will help us feel less alone and more seen.
Drew watched Bendetta and wished that it was pervier.
Shelli caught us up on The 4400 reboot, which is a very good and very queer sci-fi show that I hadn’t heard about and now have binged in a day and a half, THANK YOU, Shelli!
Vanessa helped a reader who wants to put themselves out there…without getting their feelings hurt. Dream the impossible dream!
Christina had this, on Sondheim.
Abeni brought us Charlie Jane Anders: the Autostraddle Interview. This! Is! Exciting!
Not into the holiday movies? Jeanna’s got some witchy alternatives.

See a comment that needs to be here? Let me know! Tag me [at] queergirl.
Being even older than you, I have a solution to your boot woes. Tuck your jeans into your wool socks and then put on your duck boots. Not necessarily the most fashionable look but practical.
Seconded on all points
ohhhh yes i accept this! will try right away
East Coast Fashionistas !
Some of us, anyway
Also, I’m delighted that my ridiculous comment (referring to Gabourey Sidibe playing an openly bisexual reindeer in HBO Max’s Santa, Inc.) made the awards.
playful looks good on you :)
but still, bionic grandma :0
Oooh, where can I see this bionic grandma?
put your bellbottoms on & buckle up :)
Hard to believe I watched this entire series and all I remember is her carving her initials into a tree with her bionic fingernail.
AH HA! I ~*~finally~*~ get the joke!
