I've had to; it's not ideal but if I have to work all day and go straight to the airport from work, it is what it is. I know plenty of other people who have had to do the same. We bring our suitcases into work with us.

I get that, I travelled a lot with my work, too. It's not like Sally was working to a deadline and had to be at a meeting. She just shows up there wearing her stinky dress! 🤣

I don't think it's a big deal either way. You're just sitting on a plane. It's not like going to exercise and sweating up a storm. Otherwise we'd have to be changing constantly and most people don't do that - they wear the same thing all day.

But do you get off the plane and go straight into meetings or do you hit the hotel first?

That's my point, even if I didn't have time to check in at the hotel, I always brought a change of clothes in my carry on, and changed at the airport! But maybe I am just that weird. I travelled a lot on business, sometimes going from a full day meeting, to the airport, hang around at the airport for the two hours, sit on a plane for 4 or 5 hours, rent a car or get a cab. It's hours. And I do find it grungy to be doing all of that and maybe it is just me, but all of that running around, makes me want to change. Sally had no such schedule, she didn't even have a meeting scheduled with Eric. So we know she walked from one set to the other, without the approx. 8 hours of travel (flight and cars) that she would have endured. They could have made it a bit more realistic with a clothing change.

But now, onto the Sally and Eric convo. She is an idiot. Of course Eric is going to call Lauren and Pricktor at a minimum. Sally was not this stupid until they destroyed the character on B& B.

But for non B&B watchers, it was pretty rich to hear Eric say that Sally is the last person anyone in LA would want to see. The number of actual crimes committed by his own wife (attempted murder, 3 x kidnapping) his grandson (vehicular homicide, multiple attempted murder, attempted kidnapping, etc.), his soon to be daughter-in-law (human trafficking) and pretty much all of his employees, far surpass what Sally did in LA.

Wow, so Sally is suddenly in LA? Yes the time zone works in her favour, but still.

So, I surmise that Tara and Ashland are doing a great con on the Abbotts and the Newmans. That is why Tara looked so upset to hear that he was going to bed Victoria.

Re the possible con--I sincerely hope so because

  1. Burgi is just about the only performance I'm interested in at this point
  2. I like the duo of him and Victoria--I'm an unabashed fan of the actress and the scripts have been a bit better for her lately
  3. I HATE disease storylines, fireofathousandsuns hate them. I mostly FF show at the moment but did enjoy PLL's reaction to Ashland's revelation, "Oh, ED I guess fella..." [Not as in Eileen Davidson, whom BTW I miss.

Okay, but if you know you won't have time to change, wouldn't you wear your airplane/travel clothes to work - Casual Friday or flat out jeans and a tee, in case you have to escape the plane on that giant slip 'n slide or climb out onto the wing to battle a monster?

True story. Many years ago a colleague of mine who worked in gov't was flown with senior officials via helicopter to a meeting in another smaller city. It was winter and this was in northern Canada. She was wearing a business suit with skirt and heels. The helicopter had to make a crash landing on a frozen lake. She was dressed so wrong it was not even funny. After she told me that story I never flew wearing heels ever again and usually don't even wear sandals! And I definitely dress casually in case of emergency and because it is more comfy!

Come on show. Bring back Doctor Michael Knight to (Up the adorability factor) and cure Ashland. This show desperately needs a mature (under 80) man with some (any) virility. Victoria lights up around him unlike the soul sucking Butt Billy. I can see EB leaving sometime and the show could give a man for Nikki, Ashley, Nina, Mop etc a lot of story. Maybe RB doesn't want to hang around? Sad. I love my pretty Sentinel....and he is a good actor.

Edited by crowsworks · Reason: I just had to mention how adorable MEK is again.

So is this merger Vic is proposing Assland part of his devious plot? He pretends to be dying, gets them to do a merger and he takes over Newman?

And I really don't get how Tara's threats are working on Dummer. Just tell Kyle and/or Jack the truth and lock Tara in the pool house until Kyle can get the kid away from her. Okay, that might be a bit extreme, but come on, if Tara is exposed, she loses everything. Dummer is living up to her name.

I really cannot stand what they have done to Sally (which began over on the Bold and Beautiful toward the end of her run). But I did enjoy her getting one over on Dummer.

It seems like all of Dummer's blood supply is going to her lips intead of her brain, making her even Dumber than before. Her blank look and gaping mouth, unable to respond to Tara, moves her into the realm of Dumbest.

It's the over-plucked then drawn on arbitrarily look.

OK portrait artist here and I've found that if I can get the center line of the mouth and the brows (bottom) the rest is just anatomy. But that is where I (Maybe it's just me) catch the resemblance. Naya's real brows are half an inch below her stenciled(?) brows. If she plucked and ruined her eyebrows I don't mean to pick on her (It happens) but it really messes with your 'YOU' look. 

I remember Mr Spock's advice to his replacement- Shave your brows but never pluck, thread or wax cause sometimes they don't grow back. (You don't think he liked those super thick rimmed glasses)

Always difficult to say the Lauren has topped out her, uh, signature look, "Executive Streetwalker," or something. There are so many moments, so many get-ups...

But oh, dear deity, animal print painted on to her with that every-popular business off-the-shoulder look.

See? I try to watch the show. But show is not making it easy.

p.s. It's really sad when (a) I'm mildly interested in Returned Stitch, and worse, when (b) I'm starting to enjoy Phyllis...

Like I said before, it's easy to hate on characters like Phyllis when she's being horrid to another GC denizen but she's very handy to have when outsiders come in and fuck with our people.

Yep Lauren’s hooker animal print off the shoulder skin tight dress with her fake boobs spilling out made me laugh out loud when I saw her!  Along with newly bleached hair GMAB….why does the actress allow herself to be portrayed like this as it has nothing to do with her role on the show.

Oh Kyle let the child go to Milan and you can stay at home and play house with your new family even though Tara looks much older than you.

I'm so used to Lauren's look I barely noticed and just shrugged it off. I was happy to see her in business mode. Now I hope we get to see her in that  dress tomorrow, but that's probably too much to hope for. Although she could have a convo with Sally. Or Glo. Right, she still works there?

It's possible that Lauren is dressing that way because the Monroe Wisconsin Ms. Limburger Cheese Queen contest is coming up soon and she's DAMNED IF SHE'S GONNA BE PASSED OVER AGAIN.

Summer gave Sally what she destroyed and manipulated her life over.  I hate Sally getting exactly what she planned. 

Jack's so stupid falling for Tara's fake act. Lauren also for Sally's.

Chelsea should be grateful she's not in jail. But she's going to complain to Sharon about not getting to bring Connor with her? I don't believe anything out of Chelsea's mouth, everything is always a con with her.

She left Sharon for dead the last time she left town. Sharon should not help her, Victor is the sane one.

Waste of the actor--but diminishing him leaves room for more Adam... This is a not win for me though. Between MG's crappy acting and putting up with the suddenly lady-like Sharon [uh huh], I may be wearing out FF on the remote.

But in the interests of attempting to say something nice: at least we got Beth M and Eileen Davidson! They both look well, but honestly the only thing I can say about the scenes chez Abbott [which BTW made me think of being forced to swim in Pepto Bismol] is that Traci seemed to be side-eye-ing Tara, while Ashley seemed to be doing a gooey backstroke. Hmf.

Okay, now after Stitch's convo with Sharon, I am thinking he is not the one who kidnapped Mariah. And now Stitch is going to get a job in GC. So how could he raise a baby and what would he do about Mariah? None of that makes sense. And then at the end of the ep he drops by to offer support to Abby because she is worried about Mariah and the baby. What is that all about?

I liked that they had Tessa and Abby blaming each other for hovering over Mariah and presumably driving her away. Much more realistic than the love-in they have all been having.

I use to go out of town on business a lot, and I never really talked to my husband, or even texted him. I was busy and he wasn't going to want to hear about my work. That worked for us. But he always knew exactly which country, city and hotel I was in, and when I would be returning, including flight numbers. Mariah disappearing in this way makes no sense, that no one knows where she is. People should be alarmed.
