Featured reader of the week:
summernerd, from The Bay Area, California.
1.) When and where have you met a celebrity?
I met Bill Nye the Science Guy at a rocket launch when I was 16.
I’m into nerdy celesbians (celesbinerds?) and might cry like a 15-year old girl at a New Kids on the Block concert if I could meet Rachel Maddow. We’d talk about teabagging while she made me a manly drink and I looked through her graphic novel collection. Those are all euphemisms.
2.) What lesbian/bi pop culture character are you most like, and why?
Not sure – maybe a mix between Alice and Bette from The L Word. I’m aggressive, passionate, and opinionated; I like to pretend I’m a social media whiz; and my friends say I make priceless facial expressions.
3.) What cd is in heavy rotation for you right now?
Incredibad by The Lonely Planet. Very clever parodies of musical genres and pop culture. Somehow, Natalie Portman is adorable rapping about slitting throats and watching people choke on nitrous. Cutie!

4.) What song are you currently singing in the shower?
"Holding Back the Years" by Simply Red and the entire Very Best of Daryl Hall and John Oates album. I can offer little in the way of explanation.
5.) When did you start reading AE, or what’s your favorite AE feature?
I started reading AE in summer 2008 – it helped me put together the pieces of the lesbian puzzle and come out. I love TwitterWatch, the Maddow recaps, and many videos (This Just Out With Liz Feldman, BJ Fletcher, and Cherry Bomb are my faves).
Thanks for sharing, summernerd!
