Hi, friends! I’m baking snickerdoodles as I write this, and the smell wafting from the oven smells like cinnamon and love. Hey: I’m so glad we’re part of the same Straddler family! If you need something to do today that is NOT interacting with weird family members, or if you’re hiding in a warehouse somewhere and taking a breather from Black Friday madness, you can always hang out with us! I will never stop being thankful for that – and for you. Also, don’t forget to alternate glasses of water with your drink of choice!
This week, Kaelyn wrote about ways to combat activist burnout.
The team shared their own personal Ring of Keys moments.

HI REY ?
Emerson, your comment about the goose made me laugh.
Yes, I think that relationship may be plucked from the start.
Tessa I think you’re not only already making our worlds turn, but as an astrobiologist, you’re finding out how! Pretty incredible ?
Job description: scouring the gal-axy for pal-pable evidence
“No regifting” ~ lol
…not the kind of presence you want to share with family ?
I was smiling the whole way through Sally’s article and then when I read Heather’s comment to Sally it made my cheeks hurt
That comment and Sally’s reply might be the most perfect thing on the Internet
Everyone’s been far too kind, but I’m coping
And, once more, yay for doctor CP
Thank goodness for the comment awards! I sort of missed half of this week because I was in a cold-induced haze. So nice to see the important stuff laid out for me to catch up on.
And guess what, queer friends? I start a new job next week! It’s a 3 month contract not permanent but it’s good money and mostly in my field, so yay me.
Yay Cleo! I’m so happy for you!
Congratulations Cleo!! And hope you feel better this week.
Thank you both!!!
Oh, thank you! SuperGayCorp award might be the biggest achievement of my not so super, but very, very gay life.
Honestly, that smouldering look, so, so gay
This is my first solo comment award! I’m so honored :3 My jacket goose and I are working out our differences, wish us luck
