Part of it discussed Girls with Slingshots, and I wanted to provide transcript/descriptions of the comic, so I'm doing that here. (If you have suggestions for edits, let me know!)
Soo Lin's introduction:
First Panel: Sign with "Jameson & Maureen's rehearsal, tonite", with balloons.
Second Panel: Maureen: Ooh, I'm so excited to meet Soo Lin!
Jamie: Do you know what she looks like?
Third Panel: Maureen: Kind of, but she's always wearing sunglasses in her LJ pics. Oh! There she is!
Fourth Panel: Maureen: Soo Lin!
Soo Lin: Maureen?
Fifth Panel: Maureen: You're wearing sunglasses?
Soo Lin: Yeah, I'm also carrying a cane.
First Panel: Jamie: Wooow! You're blind?
Soo Lin: You must be Maureen's genius sister.
Maureen: (waving) Actually, that's my genius sister! Hey, Melody!
Second Panel: Jamie: (gives Maureen & Melody an odd look)
Soo Lin: (Is silent)
Maureen: (Is Signing)
Melody: (Is Signing)
Third Panel: Jamie: Oh, this should be interesting.
Soo Lin: Well, where is she?
Maureen & Melody: (Signing)
Some are about how clueless people can be about blindness
First Panel: Maureen: Soo Lin, you're blind?
Soo Lin: Maureen, we've been livejournal BFF for five years. How did you not know this?
Second Panel: Maureen: You never said anything about it.
Soo Lin: I write poems about being blind all the time!
Third Panel: Maureen (looking away): Oh, I thought you were being figurative.
Soo Lin: No, I was being blind.
Fourth Panel: Mauren: So this is why all your twitter posts are about bumping into walls.
Soo Lin: Or my hot mailman. At least, I think he's hot. He smells hot.
Some are disability-related humour as told by people with disabilities.
First Panel: Chris: (knocking on door) Everyone decent?
Off screen: Come on in, Chris!
Second Panel: Chris: (Opens door to see Melody, Jamie, and Soo Lin just finishing getting dressed) Wooooow, you gals look fantastic.
Third Panel: Soo Lin: (Pokes Chris with the end of her white cane)
Sound Effect: tap JAB poke poke
Fourth Panel: Soo Lin: You too!
Chris: (looks confused)
I think my favourite is this joke about getting a bad 'terp.
First Panel: Melody: (stands up, smiling)
Paula: Hi everyone! My name is Paula, and I'll be translating for the bride's sister this evening.
Second Panel: Melody: (Signs below-panel)
Paula: Maureen, Jameson, to see you two together makes me nauseous. May your love and hamburger live on a Dutchman. You both look so drunk.
Third Panel: Silent reaction shot of the guests. Maureen & Jameson look especially shocked.
Fourth Panel: Maureen has a very disgusted look on her face.
Paula: I sincerely apologize for hiring the cheapest translator I could--HEY!
