Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (June 27, 2008)

 
 

WHAT DO A GUESTBIAN, A WALLGASM AND THE URGE TO MERGE HAVE IN COMMON?
They’re all part of scribegrrrl‘s first-season L Word vocabulary! And they’re also part of The L Word now — at least, Logo’s airing of it, which began last night. Mixed in with each episode on Logo (AfterEllen.com’s parent company) is a definition from scribegrrrl’s recap of that episode; a quote from one of our past interviews with Leisha Hailey, Kate Moennig and Erin Daniels; a relevant comment from an AfterEllen.com reader; and very funny promos of We’re Getting Nowhere that feature Jill, Karman and Dara sitting on a couch with sock puppets in what appears to be my living room (because, well, it is my living room).

As a special favor to me, Logo’s Ashley Kaplan (whom you might remember from the 2007 Power Premiere video) edited together all the on-air vocabulary slides into one video we could show you here:

scribegrrrl’s L Word Season 1 Vocabulary

Scribe’s definition of "sexy"? So very, very true. Ditto her definition of "gaydar" (poor Dana, indeed!).

Since there’s only room for one vocabulary word from each recap, your favorite scribegrrrl definition may not be here, but don’t despair — we’re gradually porting her older recaps into our article database, and you’ll see one from the first season highlighted in the "Editor’s Picks" section of the AfterEllen.com homepage every Thursday (read her first-ever L Word recap now).

Check AfterEllen.com every Thursday afternoon to see a new L Word-themed episode of We’re Getting Nowhere, and find their fifth-season vlogs — as well as L Word-related forum topics, blog posts, and articles — in our main L Word section.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
MSN’s list of the

Sexiest Shows of All-time includes several lesbian/bi shows: The L Word (duh!), Work Out (huh?) and a mention of the Callie-Erica kiss in Grey’s Anatomy (yum).

Wish you could cook like a Top Chef? The Culinary Institute of America just announced a series of cooking classes in New York led by Top Chef alum, including chefbian Jennifer Biesty, who will be teaching on Sept. 15.

The Lo-Down will be moving to Mondays, so keep an eye out for the next new episode this coming Monday, June 30.

Attention toutes les lesbiennes françaises! The Paris AfterEllen.com Meet-Up is this Sunday, June 29 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at L’imprévu café (get directions and details here). The Lyon AE Meet-Up next Thursday, July 3, will be held between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at FG Bar (details here).
