I've answered a few emails this week and thought it might make an

Blue Gal: The whole thing started quite by accident in August of 2005. It started as a funny way to attract hits, but it's not that anymore. People have come to expect panties from Blue Gal. Turns out that's an extremely smart move, though I didn't plan it that way. Kinda "brands" Blue Gal.
As a rule, no one is wearing the panties. That keeps it out of the realm of porn blogging, I hope. And I try to make the panties thematically appropriate to the post. That's not always possible. As I've written before, I am always going for the "big head and the funny bone" rather than the "little head and the funny boner." I see it as a silly commentary on the proliferation of porn and porn searchers in the internets tubes. I've seen and posted so many panties it just doesn't come across to me as even naughty anymore, but I suppose some new readers might see it that way.
Anyway now people have come to expect it so I'm (happily) trapped. Thankfully there's no shortage of panties images to choose from, and I'm getting better and better at photoshopping stuff when I need to.

BG: The other one was Angelina Jolie her own self. Was worried with 10K hits per month and climbing that implied endorsement was going to get me in trouble.
Thanks for the feedback though. The librarian type in the new header also would be happy to endorse naughty, but she doesn't want you to bother the other library patrons. Set whatever is in your pants-pocket to vibrate, babycakes.
C writes: Do you have a favorite pair of panties you've posted?
BG: Probably the "Super Sexy Glow-in-the-Dark Crotchless Panties". The fact that someone with a degree in marketing thought putting "super sexy" on the box was a good idea...sure means quality to me.
M writes: What's up with your blogging with The Aristocrats? Is that permanent, or temporary? ...I guess I think of that as a guy's blog.
BG: Bwa ha ha! Oh, not anymore, ma hunnie. My agent told me that "working with" three guys at one time on the internet would be a good career move for me. Fortunately, the 'Risties let this girl catch her breath every once in a while.
I was invited to join them precisely because they wanted more estrogen over there, and now they've got it, I think. And Paul Hinrichs and I have experimented with Linux sex chat in comments, so you never know what will happen. I mean, granted, it's not Drupal sex chat, but still.
In all seriousness, it's been a blast and an honor to write and collaborate with such talented men. I love each one of them, and it's a terrific creative challenge to try to out-funny each other. Yes, it's permanent.
Speaking of Aristocrats, new Jambi and George up today, and it's an international tale of espionage and intrigue! Kiefer Sutherland, eat your ever fun-so-lovin' heart out!
