MaryD, IMHO, does a better than average job with whatever slot she represents, but I just can’t get past the lisp. I realize it may not be correctable beyond where she is now,  but nonetheless, it is very distracting (to me)  🤷‍♀️

I can't get past "my friends". It comes off as very condescending to me. She does seem prepared though, so I'll give her points.

From Wikipedia "Segel demanded that the presenters sell by informing, not pressuring the viewers about the product. This meant that presenters would have to study each product, explain the many benefits of the product, and know the product's sales history in order to make the sell more informative and entertaining. He forbid the hard sell..."

I can't imagine how he felt about the sh*t show it's become.

Poor Mr. Segel's vision has been totally corrupted.  How many times does a host squeal "I didn't even know this would be in my show !"

I guess that means you didn't do much homework.  Or bother to attend a meeting.

Conversely, there are a couple of hosts - one in particular comes to mind - who consistently say "I invited you here on my show today because............" or "I wanted you in my show because......", which implies that they, not the show planners, are running the show.

Both approaches are tiresome.

Yeah, I don't care how much vacation David takes but turning him into a Joan of Arc Kitchen Martyr is wearing thin.  Lots of us work and lots of us get vacation.   His is no more well deserved than mine or yours.

His job is eating junk food and dancing like a fool, so maybe he's less deserving of vacation 🙂

The Amy Stran show on now is called Style Scene.

I only know that because after I tuned out upon seeing her sell yet another brand of leggings called "zuda Z-Stretch Momentum Ankle-Length Leggings" (and hearing her say they're the only legging she wears that she really doesn't mind earring all day...something I'm sure she's said about other brands)....only to tune back about 15 minutes later to see her pushing the Campanelli Fresh Face 12-piece Towel Kit with gift boxes... I wondered....what the hell kind of show is this? Leggings and face towels in the same show? What the....?

So...the show is called Style Scene. Who knew Capanelli Face Towels had anything to do with "style."

I will tune in later to see CK selling Dooney bags. I've seen her sell Dooney's before. And she's good. I'll give her that. IF D&B had a style of bag I liked (at a price I was willing to pay) CK could persuade me to buy.

(I could be in the market for a zipper top tote bag -- IF it wasn't more than $100, and if I didn't think it would be heavy before I even put anything in it. A bag that can double as my purse and professional tote. But given that I doubt I'll ever see a D&B large tote/purse for under $100. I'm safe.)

ETA: The Breezies bra TSV did push me to get some bras.....so I went out to Lane Bryant and took advantage of their sale. Plus ...no one I've seen in the Breezies bras yet has their boobs up high as I like mine.😀)

KK is front & center with D&B. She gets all the prime spots. I’d wish they show more of Terri Conn but she hardly gets any airtime. Also, the black model with the short cropped blonde hair is stunning. She’s way more understated then Katia. Actually, every model is. LOL!!!

2019 Gifts of Spite Poll!

Hey everyone - the first ever Gifts of Spite poll is posted and ready for your votes. There are three parts:

Part 1 has three categories: Beauty Aids; Shoes, Bags & Accessories; and Cleaning Products. You can vote once in each of the three categories.

Part 2 also has three categories: Home & Garden Decor; Holiday Decor; and Miscellaneous. You can vote once in each of the three categories.

Part 3 has one category: Christmas Sweaters. You can vote once in this category.

Please note that the format of this poll is different from previous polls. There's a glitch in the software that's preventing pictures from being displayed next to the voting buttons. The mods are working on figuring out the glitch but, in the meantime, we've come up with a temporary solution. At the top of the screen in each part of the poll you'll see the voting buttons with the items listed next to them. If you scroll down the page - beyond where it says "Submit Vote", you'll find the corresponding pictures for each of those items. Just keep scrolling and you'll see pictures of all of the nominees for all of the categories in that poll.

The poll closes at 12:01 on January 3, so you have a few days to view and vote. Enjoy, and hopefully none of these Gifts of Spite ended up under your Christmas tree!

Thanks Booney!  I laughed so hard at some of those pictures!  Just what I needed on a rainy Sunday.

Sadly, many members of my family would think the cleaning products would all be appropriate gifts.  I got lucky this year - nary a cleaning product as a gift.

Just wanted to observe that yesterday's clearance price of $84.98 has been reduced to $93.64.  Just like when I mentioned the original price of $134.98, this is not a typo.

All colors and sizes still available.

Caro’s been dumped onto Q2 with a three-hour D&C show. Her outfit isn’t horrible (there’s a ringing endorsement!), her pants aren’t too short for once, and everything appears to fit. Yet having arrows circling one’s widest part is probably not the best style choice. 😊

They both look absolutely horrible. Baggy-legged pants with a tunic is not a good combo to start with; but topping it with a bathrobe masquerading as a sweater takes it to a whole new level of awfulness. The flats they are wearing don't help either.

She got another dig in at Gary earlier. She asked him if his shirt was velour, and he said no, it’s corduroy - feel it. She touched the fabric, said, “Oooh, nice! Gary likes to wear things that are like what he designs for Denim & Co.” Gary quickly said, “I should start a new line - Denim & Bro.”

I have ITKWD on with Mary D (substituting for DV and his well deserved vacay - sigh).  Cast iron pan on now - by Stove.  Never heard of it, but I'm not a cast iron aficionado.  I thought Le Creuset was THE cast iron to get??  Oh wait, that changes with the day/hour/minute - whatever they have to shill.  This pan had a glass top so you could see the food.  Revolutionary.  Can't you lift the lid off to check periodically with other pans?  The OAP said oh you could use this pan over a campfire, then said well not sure if you'd want to take the glass lid out camping.  No, I wouldn't.  

Well I'm off to Amazon to see if the basic cardigan sweater (in camel $20) is back in stock.  It's a basic cardigan, no pom pons, no fringe, no cold shoulder, no extra crap I do not want nor need (no arrows pointing to my large behind either - I don't need arrows as anyone can see it way too clearly as is).

That was a Staub cast iron braiser.  Staub is a great brand, equivalent to Le Creuset in terms of price (both are on sale frequently, everywhere) and functionality.  Both have their pluses and minuses - most who prefer Le Creuset over the Staub do so because Staub's interior is a black cast iron versus the enameled porcelain over cast iron that Le Creuset has.  I use both and find I prefer Le Creuset for just that reason.......the black cast iron is harder to clean.  I also like the more vibrant colors of the Le Creuset.

But I'm not digging that glass cover on today's Staub piece, either!
