See a comment that needs to be here? Tag me! I’m [at] queergirl.
I got a comment award? Squee! I’d also like to suggest, for parents of slightly older children, Romance Trolling. It is way more entertaining than it should be to kiss your partner with enormous enthusiasm and enjoyment while your child is screaming in performative agony, “NO ROMANCE!!! I HATE ROMANCE!!!” It’s especially great when you look over at said child at just the right moment to catch them grinning, and then they try to pretend they’re not.
Caitlin, you are so completely right. Kate is an impersonation goddess.
Excellent crop of comments this week.
I’m glad Lena Headey gave the pronunciation of her name in that video, because I’d been pronouncing it wrong in my heed.
“Slow down and let her catch you?” That advice seems very out of character for a Carmen Sandiego.
Hey, it’s Lena Headey
“Jumped The Couch Award to Jill” applause to the whole thing, from the comment award name to the comment itself
High five, Kristana
Reading the Comment Awards always gives me a Headey feeling and now I know why
So I just finished playing “Knights and Bikes”. It’s about two punk rock girls going on a quest to find a hidden treasure. There’s even a moment where you just know that one of the girls is queer.
Of course I misread the title as Dykes and Bikes. Love the scream at the end of the trailer.
My friend was JUST taking about playing this together last night!
