I went to see Tig Notaro last night and did a lot of laughing, shaking my head and clapping my hands. That’s what I do when I think something is hilarious. She did some jokes from hew new comedy album Good One but also did a lot of off-the-cuff audience play. Check her out if she comes to a stage near you and be prepared to be made fun of and to hear some “stool jokes.”
I’m adopting as a single parent. I am seeing someone, [but] I keep their life private, because the email has been hacked, the Facebook has been hacked….
The only clue she gives is this:
I’m dating someone who’s a twin, so it’s like, “Your relationship with your twin really intimidates me because you guys share everything.” If you can’t be vulnerable, how can you work on something? How can it improve?
I’m not expressing anything negative or positive about it necessarily. I’m thinking about it, and I’m really taking it very seriously, because I feel that when you bring a child into the world, it’s a very, very big responsibility. I’m very aware of how old I am and I’m very aware of what that means in terms of statistics, and so, yes, I’m considering it. The clock’s ticking and I totally hear it! At the end of the day, I’m a much more giving person in my 30s than I would have been in my 20s. I’ll be a lot clearer about who I am and what I want and how to give unconditional love and attention to a child.
But what she’s really saying is “Not trying to give Calzona another mouth to feed right now.”
Lesbian and former U.S. poet laureate Kay Ryan has won the $500,000 Genius Award from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. That’s some expensive poetry!
The National Enquirer says Rosie is upset about being Photoshopped on the cover of O magazine. I don’t believe it — unless she’s upset she’s being covered by a curtain and it wasn’t part of the plan. That would be a little strange.
AE reader Senisa sent us this tip that Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time with Jake and Finn did some talking about lesbian subtext! You can watch the clip over at her blog.
