Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Pandemic Password!

I am already yearning for Women’s Week this year and I know you probably are, too, but in the meantime (and we don’t know how long that meantime will be, alas), check out Jennie McNulty’s game show, Pandemic Password, with Vickie Shaw, Roxanna Ward, Karen Williams and Dana Goldberg. I haven’t watched it yet because I’m waiting for when me and Tex can sit down and guffaw together, but you have my permission to dig in immediately!

Jennie, you get one pingy-dingy! Thanks for your big gay sense of humor, for making us laugh, and for spreading the goofy gay love!

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”) As I recover from treatment for breast cancer, however, I’m just going to post whenever I can manage.



Femme Friday — Vickie Shaw

Women’s Week is about to begin in Provincetown, and you can bet that Tex and I will be there with our lesbo bells on! We have a special place in our heart for femme comedian Vickie Shaw, whose ridiculous schtick at the Women’s Week Idol show is deeply satisfying and whose true blue femme raunch and rant will always make you (laugh so hard you’ll) cry.

Deep gratitude to Vickie for her dedication to all-queer humor!


Every Friday, I showcase a queer femme. I want to feature you! Email me at and let me feature your beautiful, unique, femme story!
