I learned several important things from episode six of Transamerican Love Story. First and foremost, I learned that I make this face a lot:
I’m going to work on eliminating that tic from here out.
I also learned that Calpernia is very indecisive (but then I already knew that).
Viewers at home learned that Alec Mapa’s comedic tastes are not just limited to sex jokes. He is quite the afficionado of fart and poop jokes, too.
We also learn that he has a rather hot bod, which you might not have guessed.
Next, we learn that Shawn can outsnark me, and I was being pretty snarky on this episode:
• Episode 6: Pop culture on the skids. (shawn @ transameriblog)
I should point out here that due to some weird editing, there’s an implication that I was describing Mike as “lugubrious,” because Callie repeats that term to describe Mike. I was in fact describing Shawn as such, who had the weight of mourning hanging over him throughout the show (though we didn’t know why he seemed so down until we’d been filming a while). I believe my descriptor for Mike was “dork.” But that is truly what Calpernia likes: sweet, simple guys who will always be bland, cheerful, worshipful, unsophisticated, and unchallenging. Like Dolly Parton and her husband Carl. These of course tend to be the guys least likely to want a long-term relationship with her, so read into that what you will.
