This is not called Amy Poehler is awesome, but it should be. I was mid-click when a commercial for Glaad came on. My partner puts down her cleaning walks into the living room, a confused look on her face, and says "I fucking love Amy Poehler. She's crazy." and I looked at glaad.org scrolling across the screen, and Mel's happy grin, and reply, "Yeah, that bitch is awesome."
I have so many gay things that I never say. I want to say them; the first is that Amy Poehler is fucking awesome. The other thing is that I'm not entirely comfortable using gay as an umbrella word; but why the fuck not? Language is so complex, so much context. I appreciate it when people reclaim language, but I think it's too meta to be effective? Maybe, I haven't made my mind up about that. But listen, using a gendered term to encompass all of queerdom? That's
unintentionally fucking sexist. Or is it? I'm so confused. Too much to work through on a Sunday.
Also, I am having an eyebrow war with Mel who is trying to convince me to stop writing and go make her some breakfast.
Okay, I made breakfast. It was delicious adobe eggs w/salsa and sour cream and cinnamon pancakes. You wish you were here, I know. I would share it with you, if you were.
settle your feet against
the wood grain
and be home again
