  1. Care.com Possibly the most annoying child amongst a baziilion annoying children in ads. "Am I cute? I mean, I think I'm cute." No you're not.
  2. I don't know about you, but there are a few weeks every month when I'm not using a tampon.
  3. I love this. When my grandma died in the early 80s, my dad asked if I wanted to keep her suits. She had maybe three suits, probably made in the 50s/60s, and while the family was far from wealthy, they were in the wool industry and the suits were made back in the time when quality meant something and they had access to the best, both in terms of materials and craftmanship. I still kick myself for saying no to those suits. Stupid teenager.
  4. When you find out will you pass it on please, so I can tell MY friend? (Something to do with breastfeeding apparently . . . .)
  5. Yes, I was going to put the Kate Winslow one too. It's epic, especially since, being the first episode, you have no idea what's coming. (Do you know the British series "Coupling"? It's also hilarious. The American remake was dreadful.) Back on topic (!), did anyone else think the champ seemed tired last night. I was sad she didn't make it further.
  6. I wouldn't go out of your way. I read it many times as a young teen and decided to read it again a couple of decades. I found it cloyingly dreadful and couldn't even finish it.
  7. Tim Gunn later wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that the Ashley win was basically a producer-driven travesty. This season, something different happened: Ashley Nell Tipton won the contest with the show’s first plus-size collection. But even this achievement managed to come off as condescending. I’ve never seen such hideous clothes in my life: bare midriffs; skirts over crinoline, which give the clothes, and the wearer, more volume; see-through skirts that reveal panties; pastels, which tend to make the wearer look juvenile; and large-scale floral embellishments that shout “prom.” Her victory reeked of tokenism. One judge told me that she was “voting for the symbol” and that these were clothes for a “certain population.” I said they should be clothes all women want to wear. I wouldn’t dream of letting any woman, whether she’s a size 6 or a 16, wear them. A nod toward inclusiveness is not enough. Although Tim Gunn has championed designing for "plus size" models, I didn't like him as a mentor, especially after his Under the Gunn show. He was downright nasty on that. On Project Runway I found much of his advice off the mark, and quite often if the designers followed it, they were dinged on the runway. I like Christian and his dry manner. Mileages vary of course!
  8. . Extras is brilliant, though not for the faint of heart! The episode with Patrick Stewart is magic. (Apparently it took loads of takes because Ricky Gervais couldn't keep a straight face.) I'm pretty sure the new champ is going to irritate me with the "ughs"/hesitations. I wouldn't have accepted plum pudding because the clue made a direct reference to the Christmas ditty about figgy pudding Since no-one liked my smog answer yesterday, I'm taking this one!
  9. (For some reason I can't multiquote, sorry.) Regarding DNA tests on the contestants, I'm sorry but I would decline to appear on a TV show if a requirement was that my DNA end up on a huge database that who knows has access to now or in the future. If I want to find out myself, fine, then it's my choice to take on the risks of data breaches etc. Christian mentioned that he dressed like his "Italian father" in the workroom on the day of the show.
  10. The whole episode just reinforced how ridiculous the Riker's storyline is. Clueless Eeyore needs to lose both arms at once in a freak helicopter crash. Then he'd be dead and his so-called "friend" (Sharpe) could adopt the baby and live happily ever after together, while Max would disappear into (what would be my idea of heaven) with the dead wife.
  11. The little skier was good but I'm surprised the weren't dinged for how out of proportion it was with the main guy, which I felt was really clunky. Also, they didn't fix the coat, and their mountain was a disaster.
  12. Sorry, I did realize that, but yours was the latest post to mention and was just continuing the conversation. Hope I didn't offend.
