The Comment Awards Has a Dumpster Tree


This week there was a Christmas tree sitting next to the dumpster in our apartment complex. It had lights on it already and everything. There was a note that said “Free to Eneyone.” After I wept for the state of our public education system and also damned Autocorrect for making it unnecessary for eneyone to learn how to spell anything ever, I took that bad boi home, plugged it in and Voila! We have a Christmas tree. Most of the lights work and our cats are very intrigued. I hope your week was as fruitful. Did you find a free tree? Are your cats intrigued?

Laneia told us how to make an adorable advent calendar for the adorable people in our lives. Is Laneia the gay Martha Stewart? Probably.

If you want to meet some like-minded individuals this holigay season, there’s probs a meet-up for that. Share adorable advent calendar ideas.

The new Gay Agenda is out. Spread the word.

So many gift guides this week! We’ve got gift ideas for folks that work from home, sexy times with trans women, new parents of tiny humans, all those famous gay ladies that came out this year and everyone on the AS team pretty much.
