  1. That Han Solo soap is awesome. Although with that title I was expecting a Star Wars version of “Days of our lives” at first … which might also be awesome (and may possibly also involve rubbing Harisson Ford all over yourself).

  2. Slightly off topic, but I just discovered that I love Edward Cullen and all his sparkly vampire friends. Like for realz! He can stalk me and watch me sleep anytime he wants! Just, you know, throwing that one out there. I can’t hide from the truth nemore :\

  3. Umm, I am a bit confused, I clicked on the climatologist link and went to a YouTube video “Chocolate Rain” was that supposed to happen?

  4. You know, I’ve made out with a guy on a couch, kissed a former co-worker’s hand and called him sweetie, and joked with both a husband and his wife that they were cheating on me with each other… and I don’t know if I’m secure enough in my heterosexuality to rub Harrison Ford all over my naked body.

  5. So am I the only one who looked at the isopod pics and wondered how it tasted with melted butter?

    Kudos to George and the mister, along with Anna Paquin. I am so OMGWTFBBQFANBOI addicted to True Blood it isn’t even funny.

  6. @OneHandClapping: From what I’ve read in the past, Anna has been fairly open about having same-sex experiences, but this is the first time she’s officially come out as bisexual. In fact, I guess no one knew she was going to say it until she said it, which I think is pretty awesome.

    But anyway, yes, the show is awesome. The creator, Alan Ball (who also writes) is openly gay, and you can definitely see the influence. Also, hello, Lafayette. Coolest character ever.

  7. @Mark Hall: I saw Spacepope’s comment on Skepchick mobile and RAN to the nearest desktop at work to post that. It was Moral Imperative. I’m sure you understand :)
    Also: I second the COTW nod.

  8. I am never never never going into the ocean again. First, it’s full of wandering whale sperm, then it’s full of nitemaer creechures. And that’s without even considering what’s off the coast of Australia.

    Personally, I’d rather rub Harrison Ford all over my body in the shower.

    Good for Anna Paquin! Now, of course, the orientation purists will start nagging her to get off the fence. [‘There’s no such thing as a bisexual…’] Arrrgh.

  9. That isopod is so rad. It probably attached itself to the robot in an attempt to get back to its home planet.


  10. @Mark Hall: I’ve never understood why some people want to deny that sexuality is a sliding scale with room for all sorts of preferences. I suspect that the “get off the fence”ers are insecure – after all, if one’s partner is attracted to both/all sexes, there’s twice the competition, and the opposite sex has something one doesn’t have, hence cannot really compete with. I have a friend who was married to a man for 15 years; her subsequent wife had a fit every time she became friends with a male, even gay ones. That’s insecurity to the power of ridiculous.

    But I do worry about Skulleigh, who thinks the ‘pod is cute.

  11. The isopod, strangely, stirred up feelings akin to those that strike me when I see a cute puppy. I did not expect that from myself.

  12. @marilove: Which kiss?

    The making out with a guy on the couch was gaming and annoying our fellow players. Our characters (his a Mexican mercenary, mine a mutant and member of a fascistic military) worked exceptionally well together, and developed a relationship. So, we sat on the couch and made out while the GM was busy with other people, just to fuck with the rest of the group. He was in theatre and I have no shame, so we could both get around the fact that we’re hetero for something amusing.
