Since everyone is doing that tree thingee, I'm not. HA! Now you must all go to your graves not knowing what kind of tree I am. :p

I've created a monster. Well, not really and if she is a monster she's a very sweet one. Kind of like Spike, except I don't want to have sex with her - no offense. ;) I convinced the not-so-anonymous Gail to start IMing and not only has she become quite fond of it, she's now recruiting others to sign up. MUWAHAHAHAHA!!! Yes, people, you will bow to my will. Next step is getting her LJ'd up. ;)

Not only did I get to talk to Gail last night but fer1213 too! *Finally* after weeks of missing each other, we were able to chat for a bit...until she had to go make dinner for her kids. Fine. Be that way. :p

Before she abandoned us, we did get a small preview of her next fic. Yes, feel free to be jealous.

Watched my BRAVO shows last night. The season finale of Blow Out! But, but, I was just getting hooked! It's sad, but I was actually very concerned that Kim wouldn't pass her final test and become a stylist. Though I did feel Jonathon was being overly critical at times (you do a cut his way or it's the wrong way), I did have to agree that if you are paying $125 for a haircut it can't be 'almost perfect'.

As for the big confrontational meeting, both sides were right and both sides were wrong. I agreed with the stylists - they did need an assistant to wash hair, do clean up, etc. After all, the more cuts they can do, the more money for the shop. But, an office manager to greet clients and serve coffee? Uh, no. The receptionist looks bored, let her do it.

And no for something we do do better than the Brits - gay make over shows. The British version of QE sucked. I called my mother midway through (I've now got her hooked :) and we bitched during the last half hour. Where was the wine tasting and cooking tips? Where was taking the guy to the store to pick out furniture and explain the choices being made? Why was the clothing store owner picking out clothes and not the 'expert'? Where was the humor? I didn't laugh once. And no throwing furniture out the window?! That's just wrong. My mother is convinced these are not experts in their field, but actors hired to fill a part.

OK, I've probably succeeded in pissing off my British friends. Hey, you guys have Shakespeare, at least let us say our Queer Eye is better. :)

Oh, look at my pretty icon. _jems_ awarded the medal to me for making it through her post. ;) I requested mine be emblazzened with The Kiss from TR. She had some excellent observations regarding the first six seasons of Buffy, including why B/A was wrong, wrong, wrong. ;-) If you haven't read it already, you should.

Nuts, I was waiting with anticipation to find out :)

I totally agree with you about the UK Queer Eye. Heck, you can go to the Republic of Tea website to get something good for your vocal chords ;) No wit, no sense of style, and worst of all, no Kyan!

LOL. Heck, it was so bad I was missing Jai last night!

And the style guy they had? T-shirts with jeans? White shirt with black pants? *I* could have put those ensembles together. I would love to see a show in which we watch our guys watch and critique their UK counterparts. Now that would be a hoot. :)

Hee, can you imagine Carson? I actually thought our guys were going to be there anyway, I wish they had.
And I'm sure you don't mean QaF but rather QEftSG

ARRRGH! That's what I get for writing a quick post and not really proof reading! Thank's for the heads up. I made the edit, now I wonder how many people I confused? :p

LOL! Grrrr - that's my (sweet) monster voice and no sex, please! Hee! And no, no yielding on the LJ. I spend enough time on the computer as it is. It was nice talking to you and fer, and I want to read the completed story (now)! :)

B/A IS wrong, wrong, wrong!! ;)

The season finale of Blow Out! But, but, I was just getting hooked!

I know! What is this 6 episode thing about? Don't they know I need summer programming? What the heck am I supposed to watch now?

I was glad Kim got to be a stylist. And though I understood Jonathan's point of view that the haircut should be great, I thought he was giving her a really hard time. But the flowers and cake at the end were nice. Who I really felt for was the model they got off the street. Poor guy had to sit for 2 plus hours. I hope he didn't have anything else to do that day.
I really hate to admit it, but I've gotten hooked on the last fifteen minutes of Blow Out each week. We just get home form Puppy Kindergarten and I pop on the TV for Queer Eye. I too think Jonathan was a bit too critical during the test, but agree that paying $125.00 (!) for a hiarcut should make the haircut more than almost perfect.

Asta, you missed Jai? I missed him too. The British Cutlure guy scared me! I liked them a little better as the show went on, and the decorator while no Tom, was pretty good. However, the food guy and the wardrobe guy were like...Jai! They didn't really do anything. I did like that the hair guy cut the man hair himself. We need to see Kyan cut hair. Let's see those muscles flex.
Asta, you missed Jai?

Yeah, shocked the Hell out of me. :p I'll give Jai credit for one thing, he has a personality. And the guys here have much better chemistry with each other. Their reactions seem natural, not like they are playing to the camera.
