They must have a zillion of these TSV spurtles. Oh, just noted they are doing advanced order on some colors. Carolyn’s presentation has gone on and on and on…now showing those colors one more time 🙄

Why can’t Q show the nutritional grid for the food products?🤔

Answering own question:

Fewer Sales. 🤭

Its either cookies, candies, gravy laden fried or sodium packed. There’s a huge audience doing KETO. 🤷‍♀️
Q…thinking it’s current and up with the times. 🤦‍♀️

Good point.  I tuned out during Elise and Alberti's sweet snack/dessert/breakfast presentation.  They kept saying each bar was 150 calories or less, but I was wondering about ingredients like sodium, carbs, etc.

I'll out myself and admit to having purchased a wooden spurtle set several years back.  I can honestly say that it is a purchase that I didn't need to make, and wouldn't again.  There isn't necessarily anything wrong with them, they just aren't necessary in my kitchen.  They take up space in the utility crock that is already pretty well jammed.  I still grab for my plastic spoons which were purchased with the T-Fal set from CVN sometime around 1987/88.

Misspent cash is my gift to the American economy.

Alberti and Elise:  yet another annoying food pairing.

Glad they are having a good time, but do it on your own time.

Cute Savannah Kandy Kitchen rep, Rhett, was a sweetheart and kept smiling through the whole presentation, having to interject to say anything.  Elise talked over him, and Alberti stuffed his face in between pointing out that he was stuffing his face.

So rude.

QVC, please make the food shows non-hosted ones.  PLEASE.

Mary is a good but harsh host.

Please soften up your delivery a bit.  It sounds like you are biting on your words like a dog trying to grab a bone, almost taking off the fingers of the bone giver.

Says she has a whole drawer dedicated to the spurtle.

Oh, brother.

Now she is calling two types of spurtles "heroes".

Unless they can save me from a crunched car or the clutches of a grizzly bear, I don't think they count as heroes. 

Being able to scrape the last teaspoon of mayo out of the jar should not be grounds for receiving a medal.

And Lucinda, I don't need to constantly be apprised of your NYC apartment, populated by a male majority. 

What does that have to do with using an elongated spoon?

I left the room for five minutes, came back, and saw hands sprinkling sprinkles on a cake.

I thought, "Wow.  Mary has man hands."

Camera panned up and it was David, grinning from ear to ear.

I like Rick in general, but not in jewelry shows. He’s like Jane T in that he can’t hold anything STILL. I get that he’s going for the sparkle, but keep it in place for a few seconds so we can see the detail of the piece.

Suit, yes. Good for him. Respect for the audience and for what he is selling.

Manicure, no. I give up. Simple buff and cuticle trim - is that so tough?🤔

Whenever I see her, my first reaction is "Oh, Britney Spears works at HSN now?" 

Next thought:  "Ouch!"

Very painful looking tan.  But watching her doing a Jay King Jewelry show, her hands are not comparable in color.  Probably just sprayed or shellacked on.

My diagnosis:  Tanorexia

Pic of Lynn with Jay. Boy, she is really tan!

Just a funny coincidence: the text (upper left corner) says "Elephant skin stone." Elephant skin, indeed. That's why you end up with after years of natural tanning from the sun. I hope Lynn is using self-tanner.

She does come across as a bit rough around the edges. Something like GP. Whoever does her “look” needs to take a Master Class. The woman had so much blush last night she looked feverish. Plus Q makeup department must have as much pink eyeshadow as they do Poo-Pourri. Between the pink shadow and the heavy blush, she looked like a concert glow stick. 🤦‍♀️

Pretty woman, but she has as much finesse hosting as a bull does rumbling through a china shop.  

Predicting that a certain host who threatens to be real will want her to be her sidekick du jour.

Maybe…it’s time for the certain host who thinks she has a special calling ‘to be real’, to act as a sidekick to someone else.

(bwaaah) Switch the tables. Vary it up. Reciprocity!

Can you picture that older host being positioned far in the background of the set, relegated to perform the social media duties for the newer, upfront, mirror hogging host. !!

For years, Josie's models have worn skimpy dresses of this pinkish material. I figured they all were whipped out in a few hours from a clearance-priced bolt of fabric -- made to be disposable after they were stained by Josie's greasy products.

I feel/felt so bad for that model!  All the skinny people probably told her she looked great too.  That was terrible.  Not the model’s fault — they should have found something more flattering.  Those shiny fabrics are not forgiving, even on a slender person.
