Today, we turn to one of the great movies of the late 20th century: 10 Things I Hate About You.
Bianca: There’s a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Sketchers, but I love my Prada backpack.
Chastity: But I love my Sketchers.
Bianca: That’s because you don’t have a Prada backpack.
It’s important to know the difference between “like” and “love.” Or in this case, “strong feelings”…
Well, at least he knew his priorities.
How was everyone’s Valentine’s Day? Sometimes, holidays or birthdays and the-like can be built up to the point where you end up feeling a let down. Like the disappointing birthday card in Cards Against Humanity. And then maybe you have a fight. Anybody have a V-Day like that? And then you inevitably try to talk to your significant other about what went wrong…
And sometimes, instead of a resolution, you come to an impasse like this:
Nope. That is not a real apology.
It’s that time of year, again! When your eyes are assaulted by red and pink in all the shop windows, and when the conditioning to associate chocolate with sex kicks into high gear. (Man, I could use some chocolate, right about now…)
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! And in honor of that, we here are TMXS are taking off our lazy hat and putting on our re-purpose apron. That’s right, we are going to give you a countdown to the big day itself, when we will introduce our first new comic of 2015!
And it’s not that I’ve been totally lazy, if you’re wondering where the regular posts went. (Dare I flatter myself that you’ve wondered?) In the few months since regular updates stopped happening I moved countries, fulfilled two separate performance contracts in different states and saw a workshop production of a show that I’m writing go up across the pond. #humblebrag
But really the reason why I took a break was a nice dose of heartache. No, not another failed attempt at a relationship (although that happened, too), but some genuine TMXS-related heartache. We got rejected for a grant that would have made TMXS: The Series become reality right at your fingertips, and after riding that roller coaster of emotions it was time for a little break.
But like anyone who ignores the notion that insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, we’re back! After all, isn’t that what love is all about?
There are several elements to this submission that (for me, at least) make it one of our most confusing, ever.
Wait a minute… did he just accuse her of being a rapist? Is she a rapist? If the genders were reversed, would we perceive this scenario differently? Somehow, since she was the one who submitted this quote, I suspect she had no idea he wasn’t into their physical relationship. But seriously. What the hell is going on there? Why was he having sex with her? Guys, gals, folks in between: don’t have sex with people you don’t want to have sex with! Relationships are complicated enough.
Or what if she was, like, his dominatrix or something, and this was part of their role play….

Ohmigosh! As a matter of fact, it was! How’d you guess? You must read my mind. That’s because we are purrrrfect together. Best pickup line, ever! Here are my panties.
