YOU’RE GAY HAHAHAHA I KNEW IT
I can’t think of sixth grade without thinking of Iah. She was the friend I could never quite believe I had: smart, outspoken, well-liked across all social groups. Naturally, I always wondered what became of her.
Imagine my delight when the answer turned out to be “gay rabbi in Ohio.”
Steph Beatriz got in bed with me last week… and I was super cool about it. Do you REALLY need to ask any further questions before you dive immediately into this episode?!
You’re really gonna wanna see this video Heather made us while on painkillers after taking apart her Roomba to see if she could put her Roomba back together.
We got in bed and talked about break ups! How to heal your heart, how to trust again, & how to get your shit back from your ex! Also, Jenny invented a new sport called “Flumeball.” ENJOY.
Underwear! We all wear it. Or you know, most of us do. For more than that, you’ll have to read this roundtable.
We talked about all-thing-Coming-Out last week to celebrate National Coming Out Day! I gave lots of advice, had a wrestling match with my tripod, and went on a full-blown rant in discussing a mom who didn’t want her kid to come out because of how that might reflect on her parenting skills. A GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL.
We got in bed and we BROUGHT OUR BOOKS! Just kidding (although I did bring one), but we *did* talk about graduate programs, GSAs, queer theory, Catholic universities, and all things school. Woot woot!
“a new column called The Thrifty Tomboy and i talk about costco for 1,200 words
Tegan Quin got in bed with me last week and we talked about cats, activism, La Croix, coming out, racquetball, and sooooo much more. My cat Sam even licked her arm at one point. It was great.
“I’m a Scorpio, this is kind of what we… do.”
We got in bed! You asked me questions! I answered them! Sam was there! IT WAS GREAT!
“This is only tangentially related to your question, but I think about the same girl nearly every time I put on mascara.”
“guys do you think i’ll ever have sex in a penthouse with floor to ceiling windows and a view
like while i’m still young enough to be bendy”
I got married to Jenny Owen Youngs four years ago, nearly to the day, so that I could demand that she get in our marital bed to livestream for you about all that we learned about weddings (and ourselves) in the process. We talked attire, budgets, pushy parents, feminism (of course), and oh-so-much-more.
“I think that’s a distinct problem that two women face. It’s that, first you’re friends with somebody. And you know you’re compatible. But you don’t know if you’re compatible just as friends or if you’re compatible as a couple because you care about each other.”
We had some thoughts.
Cameron Esposito got in bed with me and did my hair, SO THERE. We talked about religion, dog teeth, comedy, coming out, and her new podcast, Queery!
“i want to have a lesbian vibe! maybe i should just cut off all my hair and start wearing man clothes! haha. ok, probably not. maybe a rainbow or two. but that’s so cliche. maybe an “I AM A LESBIAN” teeshirt?”
“god forbid I delete that flirty note I drafted in 2014 to the hot babe from Alaska with the sexy tattoos inviting them to come visit me on my queer commune in rural Southern Oregon if they so pleased, you know?”
