First August Topic (and that means we’re closer to October)

I really wasn’t sure we’d make it even THIS far. I’m stoked, bloggren! We CAN and WILL survive another two and a half months.


WHY isn’t it October yet????????



  1. Madonna said

    Thanks Ms. Gypsy! How are you?

    OK Repost from the other thread.

    Good morning all,

    Started my sketches for the card. Something else has come up tonight, but I’ll still be working on the card. That just means that you all have until tomorrow morning at the latest to get me your messages.

    If you don’t want to email them to me, you can of course just include them on a post here at Ms. Gypsy’s

    If I don’t receive anything else from you I’ll certainly just use your message earlier.

    Don’t know if you got your email last night…. I work on a Mac and don’t have any Microsoft software. I can’t open it. Could you please just resend it the the text of your email?
    Oh, by the way, what might you say in French if you were at Kyle’s birthday party and maybe a little tipsy?……

    Ms. Gypsy,
    I’ve got a place for you guys in the card as well. I think you’ll like it.

    Claire mentioned to make hers with long curly red hair. Does anyone else have any specific features they want me to bring out on thier Blood Ties hen.

    Well girls, I’m off to check out Lifetime’s new site before I start work. Be back this afternoon.

  2. msgypsy said

    Seems to me that we go through a topic a week. At this rate, I’m afraid I’ll run out of topic titles before October. LOL!

    I can’t afford to contribute towards the Kyle gift. But I’ll “sign” the card, provided someone tells me where to send my message IF there’s still time.

    Allergies are just kicking my ass this week. It’s the schizo weather. I don’t usually have problems like this again until spring and then never this badly. I came home at noon yesterday and sacked out for four hours. (Then I got up to watch the new “Babylon 5” DVD which, if you’re planning to watch it, I’ll review privately.)

    Oh, Spike fans, I’ve been listening to the “Dresden Files” novels on my commute. They’re read on CD by James Marsters. There isn’t a trace of Spike in his voice, even when he’s Bob (who is British, in case anyone missed the TV series and doesn’t understand that reference.) I liked the TV series fine but the books are so very much better. Little things about Harry are totally missing in the show, things that wouldn’t have been difficult or expensive to portray and wouldn’t have harmed any of the scripts. That ugly coat he wore in the show? Supposed to be a leather duster (it was canvas and then someone gave him a leather one as a birthday gift in book 2.) His apartment? Basement, with sub-basement where Bob lives (lab and all) and he NEVER uses electricity in his apartment. Old-fashioned ice box and all. Harry himself is a lot more human in the books, makes mistakes, cusses, has an ego the size of Lake Michigan that allows him to display an arrogance he frequently needs. And more. These things add a depth to the character of Harry Dresden that I felt a bit lacking in the series.

    Makes me want to hunt down Peter Mohan and hug the stuffing out of him! He made significant changes to the world of Vicki Nelson in translating it from page to screen but managed to keep the depth and soul of the characters and their world. Even portraying Mike as a fair haired quarterback kind of guy rather than the wiry dark Italian many of us pictured him as (including Tanya, btw) worked by keeping the character true to the way Tanya meant for him to be. (Butcher said he was enjoying “Dresden Files” while it was on, but he also said in one interview that he was looking forward to writing a few episodes himself, and I think that might have helped bring Harry back into line…)


    But I still want to hug Mohan. And everyone else involved in “Blood Ties.”

    ISN’T IT OCTOBER YET????????????????

  3. Claire said

    WOw..I’m only number 3..thats a first..Madonna I sent you the note…I’ll have to think what I would say in French and tipsy to boot…when I speak french it’s like my alter ego comes out…I’m a little more how would you say…sexy? I don’t want to scare our Kyle… let me see…will send it later…LOL!!

    Everyone else….Bon Matin mes amis!

  4. Hi ladies,

    Long time no type. Been lurking though.

    Madonna – I like what you are planning for Kyle’s Birthday. I’m sure he will appreciate the thoughtfulness of his biggest fan base. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. I have access to some hi quality digital printers if you need for the final output, also scanners and such. You have my email.

    You can make my hen a doctor in a lab coat with a clipboard.

    Rifkind- Hang in there girl, you and your city are in our prayers.

    I posted the beginning of Chapter 10 last night for those of you who are following Keiron.


  5. Anzia said

    Madonna- you don’t have to do this but I have pretty big blue eyes and long blonde hair. I don’t mind too much about the hair but I wouldn’t mind being a Hen w/blue eyes (and glasses sadly). But, like I said it’s not imperative.


  6. lwildstar said

    hahahaha – i just emailed MsGypsy to start a new thread because it was so slow this morning!

  7. Rifkind said

    I agree with you.
    Tanya was very lucky! Peter has kept the heart and soul of the characters and brought them to life. He has also allowed her, as the author, to remain a part of the show which her book inspired. Very cool!
    Lifetime started off OK, with having Tanya Blog about the episodes.. and that made us feel even more connected to the folks who created the show.

    As you noted, Tanya’s experience is not the norm. I”d bet that most writers have to really squint their eyes to see any of their characters on shows that are translated from book to screen or TV.

  8. Margaret said

    My heart goes out to all of you who are sick.

    I have a proposal: Maybe some Saturday, possibly one we can agree open, those of you who don’t have a yahoo email generate one so we can all talk together without being lurked on by Lifetime. I have some things to say but wouldn’t want to especially say them in public. Let me know what you think.
    Yahoo will allow you to conference. Not sure how many. If anyone of you know let me know. If Lifetime is going to play we have to play smarter and harder.

  9. DIZEY1 said

    Good Morning my Blog Babies 😉 Happy Friday YA’LL !!

    Madonna, I have big green eyes and have red/brown hair w/highlights but that’s waayyy to much detail. Anyway maybe we can be drunk on Henry’s blood since he’s turned all of us 😉 When you’ve completed this project can we get an emailed copy of the finished product ? Is it a pdf file type of thing?

    Gypsy, sorry about the alergies I’m also living on Alegra and Nasonex and it’s been really bad here lately also. I usually get it worse in the fall then in the spring. Wierd stuff going around. Feel better 🙂

    Hey I watched Norman aaagain this morning (big shock I know) anyway as I was watching, 1st.) How did Henry heal after he was clawed by Norman/Vicki ? 2nd.) When Norman/Henry’s @ Segara’s getting the Grimoire and he tells her that Maurice is dead she kind of hesitates and says oh I’m sorry…….he was unique, almost like she didn’t like him or didn’t really know who he was. Yeah I’m watching these waaaaay too much and now really starting to pick them apart. 🙂 😎

  10. Margaret said

    Have I missed something, I thought we were all going to be hens with names under each hen? Or are we hens with human heads? In that case I have auburn hair, brown eyes…

  11. Rifkind said

    Count me IN. I already have a Yahoo! Account

  12. DIZEY1 said

    NO we can have a hen head w/hair and colored eyes I guess. I think it would be funny. 😉

  13. Just curious, is the chat room still available at Henry’s Hens? Does anyone ever meet there?

    I’ve got Yahoo too count me in.

  14. Margaret said

    Just think we can do it privately on a yahoo conference as opposed to Henry’s Hens which is public if you get my drift.

  15. Margaret said

    Well, if you’re doing hen hairdos mine is short, in a pixie type cut. lol

  16. Yea, I understand. I was just curious about the hen’s chat room though. The link isn’t there when I go to the site like it used to be.

    Hen’s hairstyle short ash blonde with hazel eyes for me.

  17. Dani said

    OMG I completely forgot that Gypsy started a new thread. I have sitting over at the last one wondering where everybody is. GOOD LORD! I am so stupid. Somebody shoot me now. Here is what I posted over there.

    Dani said,
    August 3, 2007 @ 7:29 am

    Hi guys. I made up the recipe cards last night for the two recipes I found yesterday. They are very cute. I put a dog bone in the upper left and lower right corners and a bat in the upper right and lower left. Going down the right side I put Cali in blue bubble letters. I of course wrote the actual recipes in red.
    This is what I came up with last night to revise the poem I wrote. Please tell me if you think it is awful:

    Happy Birthday from Henry’s Hens
    This birthday gift we want to send

    Mike’s Minxes some of us are
    That can take us very far

    Vicki’s Vices we have one too
    For her he does quite coo

    The hinxes, you can’t forget them
    Hens and Minxes mesh like a gem

    A bunch of friends we have now got
    Because your vamp style makes us hot

    For that, to you, we want to thank
    Of course you we would rather spank (JK)
    Your sides we wish to flank

    We hope you have a happy day
    Several wishes now sent your way

    Dani said,
    August 3, 2007 @ 7:31 am

    And Madonna count me in on the drunken hen. Coconut rum here I come! Woohoo! Everybody loves a responsible lush.

  18. Dani said

    Thanks Madonna for saving me from myself. I’m my own worst enemy.

  19. Dani said

    I have have brown eyes and mid back wavy brown hair. Every guy I talked and asked what they like about my profile is that they loved my smile. I don’t think you can give a hen a smile though.

  20. DIZEY1 said

    Hey ya’ Dani girl, very good on the poem. I knew I could count on you to be a rum hen. 🙂 😉

  21. elizabeth said

    Good Morning everyone! First off, I second Laurel’s request…where do we send money to help pay for all the lovely presents for Kyle? I like the idea of adding personal touches to the Hens…it is always hard to describe oneself; I have chin length reddish brown hair with darker streaks and Hazel eyes that kind of slant up *shrugs* There seem to be quite a few of us with reddish hair on this blog – cool 🙂

    I think there must be something going around, guys, I also watched Norman last night for the bazillionth time. That and Heart of Fire are my absolute favorite episodes! I know this sounds a little crazy, but I love the part where Henry slugs Vicki/Norman (not that he hits her, mind you) I just like the power evident in the arc of his arm and fist. Okay, too much Karate for me *sheepish grin*

  22. Margaret said

    Dani-Love the poem but what does the JK stand for? Who do I send a check to for all this stuff?

  23. Dani said

    I jsut heard the Minnesota bridge toll is far less then feared. Thank God!

  24. elizabeth said

    msgypsy – I watch the Dresden Files! It took me an episode or two to get into it because I had not read the books. I have only read one of the books so far, but I really liked it and it helped me understand the show a little better. I haven’t done the books on tape thing yet, but I might pick up some this winter and listen while I am knitting (and I say that in the loosest terms – I am so a beginner that it isn’t even funny 😉 I am afraid to listen to them while I am driving in case I forget to watch the road because I am too caught up in the story!!!

  25. Margaret said

    Dani-Don’t think spank might scare him. lol

    The thing I love about all this is I don’t know about the rest of you but I can rest assured that I will never run into the man/child so I don’t have to worry about being embarrassed. lol

  26. elizabeth said

    If you guys are interested in finding out what kind of car you are then visit this web site: I found out I am a Porche 911…who knew? ??? 😉

  27. Dani said

    Margaret-The spank part was a joke. That is why I out (JK) after it. The real line is: Your sides we want to flank. Kinda like being at his side or protectors flanking him on all sides.

  28. Dani said

    I am a Mazda Miata: You like to soak up the sun, but your tastes are down to earth. Everyone thinks you’re cute. Life is a winding road, and you like to take the curves in stride. Let other people compete in the rat race – you’re just here to enjoy the ride.

  29. DIZEY1 said

    Elizabeth I just knew I’d be Italian I am…….Lamborghini Murcielago!

    How cool am I baby 😎 Just call me BELLA 🙂 😉

  30. lwildstar said

    Margaret count me in too – I have a yahoo account as well

    Rifkind – thatnsk for the note about HMV Fangs – I haven’thad time to go exsplor the new LT set up – did find the message board thou, but where did you post that you got HMV up?

    this morning just as I logged off from here HR showed up – talk about timing!
    you know not a single one of her appointments showed up this morning – and they had all confirmed! the temp leaves in two weeks so I hope they find someone or I’ll have to get another temp in here. oh well. they did ask me if I was ready to start taking on more responsibility – i was honest and said I was willing to try – but that I am still in that nervouse/learning phase so to please be patient with me – I’m going to have a lot of questions, and at this stage I like having someone check my work before it goes out to a client – I sent a goofed up letter this week that no one caught (not bad, just one of those emabarassing mistake thta makes a client ask “whos working over ther?”).

    So Dani – comments? if you can email me tonight thats great – if not, no biggie. I’m suposed to be going antiqueing with mom tomorrow and I have my neice on Sunday so it would be the evening before I got to the posting anyway. FYI – I have been forbidden to mention the blog, Blood Ties, Henry and/or postcards around my mom….its going to be a long day tomorrow!

    I’m a red/brown hen too! hazel eyes.

    Ok I’ve got about 20 minutes left and Ihave a few things to take care of. If I can I’ll stop back – if not I’ll “see” you tonight.. 😉

  31. lwildstar said

    ok i cant type – Rifkind that was THANKS

  32. Madonna said

    Hey guys,

    First off…. I just got a call from my mom. My aunt Betty that I mentioned yesterday has to have emergency surgery this evening to save her hand where she was bitten by the cat. Everything should be OK, but your all’s prayers are welcome.

    Alright everyone keep the greetings coming. I can’t check my email here at work, but so far I really haven’t gotten that many. If you can’t find my email or don’t want to email it, post it here. I’ll find it.

    Absolutely love the rewrite on the poem. The only thing that scares me though is the spanking part. I’m not sure whether that’ll flatter him or freak the living daylights out of him.

    The theme I’m running with on the card is “What the Hens do to occupy themselves while waiting for Kyle to show.” The drinking game will be involved, and it will be in a cartoon style. That is all I’ll say on it, the rest will be a surprise.

    Keep the descriptions coming… I’ll do my very best to fit everything in and see that you can recognize yourselves.

    As for my description… Even though my back will be turned to you in the picture….. I actually look a little like Kyle as Henry? Same skin tone, same hair color, and about the same length, same eye color…. Wierd comparison I know, but true.

    Rifkind, Continued ((((((((HUGS))))))))))

    I’ll check back in at lunch,
    Talk to ya’s then.

  33. Dani said

    Madonna-See my 9:30 post. It was all a joke.

  34. DIZEY1 said

    Hey Madonna Beaucoup Prayers for your Aunt 🙂 maybe we can put the link from Tanya’s Blood Blog to Gypsy’s so he’ll kinda know who we are, maybe let him know we’re Tanya’s girls, and add the email, ya never know he may have someone post that he rec’d said gifts and says thanks. Hey maybe he’ll get his mom to do it, I know he knows how to use a computer he just chooses nto to surf these sites, so he may say thanks himself.

    OOhhh here’s the info on my car, I didn’t scroll before I just saw the car but here’s my bio: (the similarities are frightening 😉 )

    You’re not subtle, but you don’t want to be. Fast, loud, and dramatic, you want people to notice you, and then get out of the way. In a world full of sheep, you’re a raging bull.

  35. Margaret said

    Prayers are with you for your Aunt. Dani-Color me embarassed. lol
    Still love the rest. Stupid me I though you were making reference to JK Rowling.

  36. lwildstar said

    I’m and Audi TT – You’re not the fastest, nor the most nimble, but you’re cute and you have style. You’re not intensely competitive, but when you pass by, everyone turns to look.

    I went back over to the LT board – found where Rifkind posted the picture of HMV Fangs – but cant figure out how to leave a comment there – oh well , will ahve to exsplore tonight when i get home.

    do you think we should let LT knowhow non user friendly they’ve made the site? if I can figure out where to leave feed back I will.

    take care every one

  37. elizabeth said

    I forgot to give you guys the description of me as a Porche 911. So here it is: You have a classic style, but you’re up-to-date with the latest technology. You’re ambitious, competitive, and you love to win. Performance, precision, and prestige – you’re one of the elite,and you know it. Woo Hoo! 🙂

  38. msgypsy said

    Prayers for Madonna’s aunt.

    I’m a Mazda Miata. Which is funny because I once wrote a humorous story about a dog who is a detective and named Mazda Miata (remember Ford Fairlane? It was a gag based on that.) The dog was based on Faraday’s predecessor, Tesla who I SWEAR was an avatar of White Tara.

    Gotta get back to work but I wanted to make sure I got my Kyle greeting in. Something about him being the son I wish I’d had. Sorry. I really have to go with that. I’d love to have a son with that much talent and that much poise. And that cute. (And if I’d been able to have children the first would have been just about his age…)

    I think we should include the links to the various blogs, not because we want him to visit, but so he knows how we got together. Good to mention this is where we migrated from Tanya’s LT blog. I suspect someone in his publicity team has already found us so it would serve as identification more than an invitation. At least I’d hope so.

    BTW, don’t forget, I’m as much Vice as I am Minx. I really don’t think Christina would be offended. And I still plan to send her Moonstruck chocolate as soon as I can figure out how to get it there unmolested…

  39. h2>I’m a Honda S2000!

    You live on the edge, and you live for the adrenaline rush. You don’t need luxuries, snob appeal, or superfluous gadgets. You put your top down, get your motor revving, and take all the curves that life throws at you at full speed. So what if you spin out occasionally?
    Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

  40. Anzia said

    Elizabeth- i’m a Porche 911 too! ^_^

    Dani- loved the poem! Wouldn’t mind spanking… but flanking is okay too… To be serious, when I read “flanking” I started thinking about slabs of meat and was a bit scared. But… it makes sense when I add YOUR thought process instead of my twisted view of word association. 🙂

    Madonna- you have my prayers!

    I have a Yahoo account as well! ^_^

  41. Dani said

    Mine said I am here for the ride. You better believe it baby.
    lwildstar-I just emailed your story back. Great job!

  42. Dani said

    You know what my mom said about the spanking and flanking? She said they go together in the aspect of spanking HIS flanks, but the way I put the flanking gives not much of a clue to what I really meant. Now I may have to rethink it. How else can I word that line without it sounding like flanks but still have the special meaning to us?

  43. Rifkind said

    I have very long dark brown hair and dark brown/black eyes too.
    But not a drunken hen …

  44. DIZEY1 said

    Ok jidz heading to lunch and the bank. Will check in when I return.

  45. Annalaise duChat said

    Since they were a few comments about the spanking line of the poem scaring Kyle just a bit I thought how about something like this:

    Joined by common cause we are
    to stand behind our favorite star.

  46. Madonna said

    Thank you everyone for the prayers. My aunt has had a very rough go of it the past few years and she does not need this right now.

    I think the recipe cards sound really great! Very cute!
    Sorry about that earlier. I did see your comment after I posted, but I was already about 5 min. late coming back from break. Really do love the poem.

    Maybe we could try something like….

    Your faithful fans send our thanks to you,
    We’re with you no matter what you pursue.
    Elizabeth, Anzia,
    I’m a Porche 911 too!

    Thanks for the description. I’ve got all the drunken hens I need. Thanks Dizey, Dani, catcornmom, and Anzia. I promise it’ll all be in good fun.

    Thanks for offering to help. I have a pretty good printer so I’ll try that first. If it doesn’t come out very good on my end expect an email.

    Lady A,
    You are the one who does the Renaissance Festivals aren’t you. I kind of get you and Annalaise confused sometimes. Sorry, I’m going to hang my head in shame now.

    Ms. Gypsy,
    What kind of dog is Faraday again?

    Could someone please come up with a list of all the websites I need to list on the card? My head is full right now and I don’t want to forget anything.

  47. Madonna said

    OOOOh Annalaise, You hadn’t posted before I finished typing. I really like your lines too.

  48. Annalaise duChat said

    Maybe you could use them both.

  49. Dani said

    Hey you guys do what you want with it. The spanking part was not meant to be a part of the actually poem. I only put it on here as a sort of joke for all of you. The real line I suggested is right underneath it. Feel free to change it anyway you like. I don’t mind. I don’t want anyone on here to be worried about embarrasing him or anything. Honestly with his “shocker” picture he won’t get to embarrassed over much.

  50. Madonna said

    It’s your poem. You did a great job! I’ll leave the final decisions on it up to you. Just let me know before you leave today or email me.

    OK guys, I’m getting out of work early. I’m off to do the card…….. I’ll check back in several times throughout the evening. Greetings are the last thing I’ll do so you all still have until early tomorrow morning.

    Bye now!

  51. Madonna said

    Oh Dani,
    I’m planning on using that poem on the first page next to the illustration. Do you want to just use that as you greeting or do you want to submit something else?

    I’m using yours on the second page. I’ll pose the same question to you.

  52. Anzia said

    Dani- if you wanted to keep “flank” in I would recommend flipping the two lines so it read:

    Your sides we wish to flank
    For that, we want you to thank

  53. Dani said

    Hows this?
    Happy Birthday from Henry’s Hens
    This birthday gift we want to send

    Mike’s Minxes some of us are
    That can take us very far

    Vicki’s Vices we have one too
    For her he does quite coo

    The hinxes, you can’t forget them
    Hens and Minxes mesh like a gem

    A bunch of friends we have now got
    Because your vamp style makes us hot

    For that, to you, we want to thank
    We want to take you to the bank
    In our dreams our blood, you drank

    We hope you have a happy day
    Several wishes now sent your way

  54. Annalaise duChat said

    I vote for:

    For that, to you, we want to thank
    In our dreams our blood, you drank

    but Dani It’s your poem you decide how you want it. Keep up the good work.

  55. Dani said

    I think I like that line the best actually.

  56. Himmiefan said

    I’m a Porsche 911 too!! Who’d a thought? I was scared I was going to be something like a station wagon or mini-van. I’m a Porsche!! Woo hoo!

    Dani – you’ve done a great job on the poem. I really like the line, “In our dreams our blood, you drank.” Oh, thanks for clearing up the spanking part. It’s a cute line for just amongst us Hens. 🙂

    Margaret – JK Rowling. That’s exactly what I thought of too! I’ve been reading way too much lately.

    Madonna – prayers for your aunt. Let us know how she does.

    For the drawing, I had to laugh because Anzia’s description fits me too. For me, you can add hair that’s just a little below shoulder length with a flip on the ends.

  57. Anzia said

    Madonna- I had meant that to come from all of us. Unless there are people who don’t agree w/it. Which is fine. But the intent was to have something from everyone that expressed the basic idea from all of us.

  58. Dani said

    I will send you another greeting just from me. I will try and send it to you tonight. I will have to sneak to Kelly’s. Oh Darn!

  59. Dani said

    Well I am heading out. I am going to see Hairspray again.

  60. prtfvr said

    I can put the hen’s chat room online if anyone’s interested. There just didn’t seem to be much use of it. I think the hardest part is knowing when someone will join you. Once you live it’s like you were never there so no one knows if you were just on and haven’t signed on at all. Anyhow, if anyone wants it I’ll reinstate it.

    I’ve missed a lot lately so I’m not sure what all the descriptions are about. I do know that I’d planned a page showing each member’s picture (that sounds dirty, doesn’t it). If you want to email something you’d like posted, I can put it up this weekend. My email address is:

    Other than that, I don’t have a clue what’s going on here!! I’m woefully out of touch again.

  61. DIZEY1 said

    Bye Dani girl I like him drinking my blood too. In my dreams al least 😉 Have a great weekend and enjoy the show.

    Himmie girl you are so funny. I am the only Lamborghini here, that’s starting to make me wonder hmmmmmm. Oh well it’s me what can I say. I guess I’ll be the gate keeper, raging bull and all.

    Oh I ordered the cookie cutters and the bowl it should be here around the same time as the toy. Madonna let me know where you finally ordered it from I do want to get one hopefully for the pup I adopt tomorrow. I am CLEARLY longing for another dawg. I almost started crying when looking at dog breeds last night online and pulled up a pic of the pom’s it looked like my little *Boo* he was such a sweetie I miss all my little babies 😦

  62. Annalaise duChat said

    Hi Prtfvr,

    Good to have you back. I was just wondering what happened to the chatroom. We should try to schedule another one soon. That was fun. I really like what you are doing with the comics. Very entertaining.

  63. Margaret said

    So when you all get through with the card if we give you an email can we see it. Still need to know where to send the check for the goodies you all are ordering and how much you need.

  64. “Lady A,
    You are the one who does the Renaissance Festivals aren’t you. I kind of get you and Annalaise confused sometimes. Sorry, I’m going to hang my head in shame now.”

    Yes I am!

    I emailed in my greetings for the card. I honestly couldn’t think of anything creative to say. Guess my brain is still in bed.

    I agree with all of you, the changes to Lifetime’s site were not for the best. At the moment, with my super fast cable connection it is still taking minutes to fully load a page, that is ridiculous! It’s hard to navigate, and I have yet to find the boards.

    Oh! I also have a yahoo address, and I think the conferences can have as many people as you wish. Keep me in the loop about when you all plan on gathering on Yeehaw (Yahoo), or the Hen’s site to chat.

    I’ve got to go hunt and gather some lunch before my stomach jumps out and devours my nephew… Eep!!

    Himmiefan – I so got a chuckle out of you worrying if you were going to be a station wagon or minivan. I have to confess I worried about the same thing when I went to the site. Believe me, I was thrilled to be a porsche 🙂

  66. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret the total for the goodies wasn’t that much and I’d hate for everybody to send a dollar so I’ll have to figure outr how many of us. I’ll get back to ya’ after I send them to Lady A, or Lady A do you want to mail the rosary to me and I can package it all up and ship it from here, six of one half a dozen of another. As I said yesterday I’m EASY 😉

    Hey all..

    My son’s birthday is Sunday and we are having his party tomorrow. He will be 4, and he wants a motorcycle cake..of course I ordered it. LOL

    yeah..Kyle will be a year older…maybe that will make me feel less like a dirty old woman when I look at him. HEHEHEH (probably not!)

    Licking the screen??? Uhh….noooo I would NEVER do that!!! ROTFLMAO….

    Ok maybe once..but I was really really….in need….

    I have to sing tonight…so I must go DIVA up….so everyone have a good night and I will catch you later.

  68. DIZEY1 said

    PRTFVR, my sweet friend , how are you feeling? I miss you, somedays nobody can make me laugh like you do. Please don’t stay away so long. You are missed 🙂 😛

  69. The toy that Madonna ordered is on its way to my house from wherever she ordered it from… So I’m thinking everything should still come this way.

  70. elizabeth said

    Man, am I lucky or what? I just got back from lunch with Laurel 🙂 I really enjoy talking to her and she has such lovely daughters! I got to see her birthday toy (iPod) and now I am jealous. She has all the BT episodes on it! She even managed to clear up a question I had on Post Partum.

  71. DIZEY1 said

    Vicki I’m jealous that’s what I want to do when I grow up. What kinds of tunes do you sing ?? 🙂

  72. Haha! You go for lunch and get to see Blood Ties too!

  73. DIZEY1 said

    Ok COOL BEANS 😎 When it gets here I’ll let you know and get your shipping address and we’ll be good to go 😉

  74. rifkind said

    I hope that you are feeling better!
    We’ve been working out a gift for Kyle’s birthday.
    We’ve decided to send a rosary braclet, and a collapsible water bowl and recipes for dog biscuits and dog bone cookie cutters for Cali.
    (We love his pup too!)

    As far as Lifetime is concerned
    To join the Lifetime Blood Ties conversation blog go to the link below.
    If it is the first time on the “new” and revised Lifetime site, you will probably have to redo your registration with LT. I had to.

  75. okee dokee!

    I can’t believe how fast this came together!

  76. DIZEY1 said

    Cuz we’re girls and girls RULE and ROCK 😉 it’s almost 5:00 and I’m ready to run out of here like my hairs on fire.

  77. well lets hope your hair really isn’t on fire.

    Honey with the humidity here I’d be out in a New York second, I wonder how M’adame Claire is doing with the moving of the big things. God I hate moving not that I’ve dont it that much. Once is pleeenty.

    Catch ya’ll when I get home my little *blood suckers* 😉

  81. Dizey.. how did you know what I ate for lunch??


    I hate moving. I did it so often as a kid that at one point I just stopped unpacking certain boxes that had non essential stuffs.

  86. AlisaSG said

    >> Started my sketches for the card. Something else has come up tonight, but I’ll still be working on the card. That just means that you all have until tomorrow morning at the latest to get me your messages.

    you mean I could have gone food shopping afterall?? 😦
    I drove home to beat the thunderstorm and get my e-mail out by 7pm,
    but thank you ever so much for the extra time.. my brain takes a while to cooperate.. 😉
    BTW, this will be my 4th b-day card today to sign (had several already at work).

    >> AlisaSG,
    If I don’t receive anything else from you I’ll certainly just use your message earlier.

    not sure of which earlier thing you’re referring to beyond my quickie note on previous blog.
    I’ll try to write something a little more substantial, and send you 2 e-mails
    * one to let you know about the other coming, and any extra instructions so it’s not in the way of the actual copy/paste one going to Kyle..
    * the other one so it’s automatically set up to copy & paste direct.

    okay, it’s getting really dark out here, and there’s an ugly, huge red blob on the weather map heading in this direction. So, I may have to shut the computer down soon, and stay off for a few hours.. 😦

  87. AlisaSG said

    one other question – is there a limit to how many characters (maximum length) of our info sharing can be for the card?

    Plus, I can sign the card, too, but will also be sending a separate snail mail in addition (hopefully).

    And one other little question, are you posting the final product anywhere? (personal e-mail?)
    just asking because my *real* name will be attached to this thing..
    and if I do that, I’m still undecided about including
    a shorter version of his amazing *Andreas* connection..! 😎
    (which will be in my longer snail mail card, if not in the group one from all of us on the BT blogs)


    >> Have I missed something, I thought we were all going to be hens with names under each hen? Or are we hens with human heads? In that case I have auburn hair, brown eyes… we have to? “hens” are *chickens* afterall..
    I keep hearing those bawk, bawk, bawk (clucking) noises.

    I’d prefer a more exotic Henry’s Hens Harem image instead..

    gotta go, storm’s coming and I’ve got dishes to wash first.
    Later! 😎

  88. lwildstar said

    AlisaSG, it looks like we’ve got storms coming in here too….

    I just went over to LifeTime to leave thema feed back about how bad the website is now – it takes forever to just download, not to mention the difficulty in getting around the site – and guess what – I can’t get into the feed back or contact us sections – they keep erroring out! major frustration!

    I’m not even going to attempt to watch an episode online tonight – I’m liable to throw the computer out the window. So I think I will go watch a dvd and try not to lick the screen!

    I want to add something to the card Madonna but I can’t think of anything..(everything I’ve thought of sounds so stupid)…so if nothing else would you sign my name to it?

    and am I still the only one whos got to the thread about the Bovine Club?

    ok its really starting to get dark outside so I think I will log off and I’ll be back tomorrow evening – guess what I REALLY AM GOING TO POST MY STORY!Thanks for all you’re help Dani!

    Night my dears!

  89. Could one of you send a storm my way? We could use some rain, or at least some wind.

    It could be worse, it could be as humid as it was mid July. I was soaked before I even made it out the door!

  90. elizabeth said

    Well, one and all, I am outta here for the weekend. I think I will go home and…surprise, surprise!!!…watch some Bloodties 😉

  91. Take care Elizabeth!

  92. DIZEY1 said

    Have a great weekend Elizabeth, I’ll probably watch a few ep’s myself.
    Maybe we could pick an ep to watch and meet and pick it apart on Monday like back in the *OLD* days.

    Hey **Z** wassup chicky?? Haven’t seen you too much today, busy huh?? Life getting in the way aaaaagain ? 😉 I know it keeps rearing it’s ugly head my way and I just don’t want to play in reality.

  93. Chery said

    I am so bummed, I still cannot post on the Blood Ties Board. I sent an e-mail to them.

    Sooooooo I think the site is terrible. Very hard to navagate plus Blood Ties is in the background, not mentioned.

  94. I still cannot find the boards. I also do not have the patience to poke around the site for more than five minutes at a time, which only leaves me time to pull up 2 pages… Maybe.

  95. AlisaSG said

    I just went to look for dog photos of shelties, and came across a web link to

    in one of the paragraphs it reads:

    “Meet Tucker’s Best Girl, Callie!
    She’s the Sheltie.Net’s own Champion Agility Sheltie !!!
    Meet Callie in our forums and ask her all about Shelties and Agility training. Also, Callie usually stops by our Sheltie Chat every Sunday at 8:00 pm ET so feel free to visit Callie and Tucker and Rusty and several other great Sheltie type friends.”

    is that too much of a coincidence??

    anywho.. before clicking away–while surfing over there, my anti-virus went off advising to block the link on the pictures site that was attached. ..okay, so don’t put a www in front of the link..

    found a better web page one, too/
    My sheltie dog was had a variety of name labels attached, but one was

    “Shetland Sheepdog”

    google the name under images, and a bunch of site come up.
    (I saw a bunch of photos on google’s image page, that read “Mutt” instead.. LOL! ..translation is *mixture* of sheltie, sheepdog, miniature collie, etc.)

    One site had a beautiful photo, that looked similar to our *Tiny*
    (“Shetland Sheepdog”)
    — link goes to another dog, similar to “Tiny”, but named Lancer..
    see below for Lancer.

    BTW, I’ve never seen a picture of Kyle’s Cali..
    is there somewhere I can look?

    not sure if Kyle’s Cali is a “Shetland Sheepdog” or straight border collie. I think the Shetland’s can be tri-color, whereas the borders are usually variations of 2-colors.

    I’ll be back later..
    the storm is almost here.

  96. Madonna said

    Hi guys,

    Still working, and probably will be most of the night and morning. Have to take a break now and go somewhere. Keep sending the greetings. You don’t necessarily have to say anything creative, just say Happy Birthday and sign it. He’ll appreciate it! No limit on the space, I’ll make the card as many pages as needed to fit everything.

    When it is finished I will email it out to everyone who wants it and maybe Ms. Gypsy can even post it here.

    Again can someone please post all the websites you think I need to list so I don’t forget and I can just copy and paste.

    Looks like the real challenge for me is going to be fitting everything I have planned into an 8 1/2 x 11 space. Man there are a lot of us!!!!!

  97. Yes there are and we keep growing every day!!


    Madonna, did you receive my email about what I wanted to say? I can never tell what happens when I send stuff to AOL.

  98. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna I just sent you those emails let me know if you need anything else.

    🙂 😉 😎 😛


  99. DIZEY1 said

    Starving will check back after my feeding 😉

  100. food? Damnit I guess it’s almost time for me to cook dinner… Some days I loathe cooking.

  101. lwildstar said

    If you still cant find the message board over at LifeTime you need to go to the “on Tv’ tab the SHOWS and find the link for ALL SHOWS and click on Blood Ties – other wise they ONLY show AW, Side of Life and State of Mind….When the Blood Ties page comes up scroll down to the bottom….of course you can’t post until you log in – and don’t be surprised when it starts asking you extra personal questions to “update” your account – provided you had one…..and sometimes if you log in AFTER you have made it this far – you get kicked back to the home page and have to start over!

    There’s lots of other new stuff I can’t even figure out how to get too like where RIfkind posted with HMV Fang’s picture, and I don’t think Im going to bother right now.

    Chery – how did you even manage to send them an email? I tried for 20 minutes and all I got was error messages!

    Ok I’m off for the night will check back tomorrow!

  102. Chery said

    I tried my old name and password, then I tried to register as new, found out they had me on file, why they won’t let me in is beyond me.

    I went to the “contact us” at the bottom.

  103. lwildstar said

    Chery – when I go to contacts and or feedback I either get an error message OR I get a list of generic questions – if I try to continue I get the “not here” message saying the page does not exist.

    So for those of you who can get to the contacts or feed back page please tell them how difficult thier web site is! I’m going to keep trying!

    I was going to try to watch an episode of BT on the site but after 15 minutes it was still trying to download – never had that problem before.

    but I did make it to the message board and the board for “Blood Ties Returns , round 2” and posted there

    oh well I need to log off – got and early day tomorrow.


  104. msgypsy said

    Hey, blog-sibs, just a drive-by. Spent the entire day either in a meeting or an anniversary lunch for a co-worker (Red Lobster, yummy!) so I couldn’t check in much. And now I’m off to rehearsal, tomorrow I have a class in plant dyes, Sunday I have religious obligations to attend to, and that’s pretty much my weekend.

    The Lifetime board is a pain. It didn’t recognize my password, but did let me reset it. But then it didn’t recognize my name. I think it’s confused. Maybe I’ll register again…

  105. Margaret said

    Ms. Gypsy tell them you’re in their coveted demographic if you have to go to the trouble of reregistering. Joking but halfway serious.

  106. DIZEY1 said

    I’m beat, going to crawl into bed with either Herny or maybe Max tonight. I may just do both one on either side works just fine by me (hee hee) . Tomorrow’s another day as one of the great southern women said “Fiddle dee dee I’ll worry about it tomorrow”. Rock on Scarlet you whack job !!! I’m southern I can call her that 😉 Be good and “wear something nice” 🙂




  107. DIZEY1 said

    that’s crawl into bed w/either HENRY or Max, told you I was tired.

  108. Anzia said

    Diz- Yup. Life… it sucks sometimes. The sad thing is that since I live with my aunt & uncle right now, I don’t have much say in what my days are like. When my aunt doesn’t work I can’t stick around my PC like I want to. I actually have to have physical interactions with people. Meaning, sitting in the living room crocheting and watching House (not that I’ll complain about Lovely Hugh Laurie or the Robert Leonard or the guy who plays Chase- YUMMY!). Then on the days she’s asleep, my nights are spent watching her youngest kid so she can sleep before going back to work (she sleeps 10-11 hrs a day!) *sigh* I also get a lot of crap ’cause I spend so much time on my computer. *shakes head* I really can’t win.

    When I start my new job it will REALLY suck ’cause I’ll work ALL DAY! I start at 1 and get off at 10! I will never have a social life…meaning, i’ll get to talk to you guys even less 😦 I think i’m going to go nuts at this job and I haven’t even started it yet. 😦 Besides, I might not be able to have internet immediately after I move… I think i’m gonna cry!

    I haven’t even gone back the the LT site. After hearing all that you guys have said, I’m not sure I want to risk it. If i really hate it I won’t go back. And it sounds like I probably won’t like it…

  109. Margaret said

    Anzia: You can’t let the ##!! know that they have defeated you. I think that’s what they’re counting on, unless they intentionally designed it to torment people, they wouldn’t do that would they? lol

  110. Himmiefan said

    Hey Anzia – what about using a PC at a library until your internet access is up and running? That way, you can also keep writing on 🙂

    How many days a week will you work with this job? Will you have weekends off?

  111. Laurel said

    I too have a Yahoo account. Propose a time and date and I will do my best to get there. Will I need to add IM to my account? I don’t use it much but for you gals I would add any extras needed.
    I managed to catch up with Elizabeth for a late lunch today. She is just as genuine and wonderful in person as she appears here. We had to laugh about how we have memorized all the episodes so far. I was able to help her with one of the lines she was unsure of from “Post-Partum” by playing it at the table on the i-Pod. It was pretty funny. 😎
    I’m sure we have earned our places at the Betty Ford – BT wing. lol

  112. Tango said

    Hey gals! Missed you guys this week. Been extremely busy with school starting back this week. Still burning the candle at both ends, and I’m existing on fumes right now.

    Z – I’ll be right there with ya, it just my day starts around 4 AM and get home around 5-6 PM with more paperwork to finish.

    Rifkind – You are a SUPER-FANTASTIC, MARVELOUS, GENIUS, KIND, GENEROUS, PERSISTENT, DID I SAY GENIUS? WONDERFUL, FABULOUS, TRULY AWESOME PERSON! 1,000 Thank You’s for the email reply fix. I wouldn’t have been able to figure it out without you. Yea you! Also, mucho mucho hugs to you and those in Minnesota who have suffered from the disaster.

    I have missed so much this week…

    Claire – I hope you got moved in and everything went well. Are the kids excited?

    Madonna, thanks for sending me the email about the card, I don’t know whether my reply got to you in time as I don’t remember your timezone, but I appreciate you trying to get the word out.

    prtfvr – hope that you are feeling better.

    And the survey says… I’m a Ferrari 360 Modena. I guess that’s why I chose to drive a Ferrari in Elder Hostil 🙂

  113. Anzia said

    Margaret- ^_^ They haven’t defeated me. I refuse to engage in battle at this point. I’m standing on the hill over looking the battlefield laughing hysterically at their attempts. You should join in the insanity. It’s fun @_@

    Himmie- I work 5 days a week. And three weeks outa the month i work Saturdays. but I get paid an extra 50 cents an hour on saturdays and any hours I work after 3pm. So… yeah..

  114. Laurel said

    Huh? I’m a Porche 911! Too funny!
    Hi Tango! I sure miss you when you’re not here with us. Of course, I haven’t been here much lately either. (Thanks for the e-mails, they keep me laughing).

  115. Laurel said

    I’ll have to catch up with everyone tomorrow. I’m going to watch Monk with my family. It is especially funny since we all suffer from OCD to some extent. 🙂
    Sweet dreams!

  116. Tango said

    Good night everyone! I’ll check in with you tomorrow!

  117. Madonna said

    Well it is 4 o’clock in the morning where I’m at. I’ve kind of hit a snag in the card and am starting to get frustrated, so I think I’m going to head to bed, get a few hours of shut eye and take a fresh look at it in the morning.

    Oh yeah, did I mention I’m making this card with a little liquor in me? It ought to be interesting.

    I think I may be throwing a sword into the wall like Henry in Dearly Departed.

    Lady A,
    I did get your greeting. Thanks!

    Got your email with the websites too. Thanks for putting them all together for me. My mind is going in a million different directions right now and it is nice to have that info all in one place.

    I received an email from Claire earlier. She wanted me to let you all know that she is moving in to her new place tomorrow and she will try to stop by on Sunday.

    Goodnight ladies and gent…..

  118. DIZEY1 said

    Good Morning my little chickadees 😉 Happy Saturday to one and all !

    Madonna pleeease tell me you didn’t stay up that late just for the card? I hope your cocktail of choice was good and good for ya’ 😉 The emails were the least I could do for you. I’m so stoked to see this card and I think he’ll appreciate it alot. You know I wonder if we sent it to Scribble’s attention it may get forwarded to him faster and not sit in a pile of other mail. What do ya’ll think. I don’t think she’d mind she knows how much we’re doing to get more seasons etc. It was just a thought.

  119. msgypsy said

    Madonna, sleep well. When you awake and get back online would you let me know if you got my email? Since there were attachments I’m concerned that it might be rejected.

    I have a class in a couple hours. It’s an all-day class and after that I have a party to go to. Somewhere in there I need to breathe. I’ll try to get back to the blog tomorrow…

  120. prtfvr said

    Just a drive by update:

    I’ll put the chat room up. Finishing the “Gay” comic first.

    Still have bronchitis but I’m much better, thanks for asking.

    Tango, I’ve tried responding to your emails but it all was rejects them. Is there something you want to tell me? 😉

    This is the first time I’ve touched my laptop in almost a week. I’ve looked at it sitting on the floor (where I keep it on a lap desk, of course) and haven’t had a desire to open it up once. Work’s been a downer.

    The good news is that it looks like my husband’s going to make faculty! It’s so awesome! I’m really happy for him. Since that was brought up, his mood has been much better. So much so that I realized that he’s been depressed. I didn’t even notice! I thought it was me! The whole world revolves around me, don’tchaknow.

    Anyhow, he’s really happy which makes me really happy. Now, just need to get my ass in gear and finish the comic. Maybe because I think there’s only two chapters left and I don’t know what I’ll do next! I’m sure I’ll figure out something.

  121. rifkind said

    Sweeetie! I hope that you get some sleep!
    I’ve been in that boat! I was working on a side project in the evenings and late into the night and early morning hours, making a website for a professor who lives down in Austin, TX. I haven’t done active web development since I worked at the now defunct company. I was having so much fun doing it… that I too burned the candle at both ends.. I was trying to get it done … and was having fun… but went too long without sleep… and without giving my eyes a rest… as a result I got an optical migrane! I’ve NEVER had problems like THAT before… it was pretty scary!
    I know that you are doing this out of Love for the show and all.. but be sure to get some rest!
    I sent an email last night with my birthday greetings for Kyle.. let me know that you got it, OK??
    Be well!

  122. Margaret said

    For those of you that I sent an email to, you know who you are, I can only assume that by your deafening silence that you believe the idea was a bad one. I merely said it was an IDEA, its nothing that I have acted on. And even though two wrongs don’t make a right, I don’t believe that Lifetime is being straight up with us now or will be in the future.

    There are times that I can help but think they will use our age against us, now that they have it. That’s what did in JAG, Close to Home and several other shows that didn’t make it. They didn’t provide the coveted demographic.

  123. AlisaSG said

    hi ya’all.. first time back on the computer since last night’s spectacular lightening show.. it knocked out something at a water treatment plant in Bergen County (NJ), so everyone there is having a (not so) *fun* weekend in 90 degree temps with restricted water use.

    anywho.. I have a question..
    >> We’ve decided to send a rosary braclet, and a collapsible water bowl…

    it’s the collapsible water bowl that I’m wondering about. It doesn’t leak? I’ve never seen anything with liquid in that doesn’t leak and is collapsible, unless it’s a plastic blow up type that can be stored away for traveling purposes..

    Is that what it is? Even then, I’d probably use it for dry food than water (in case it gets punctured somehow).

    I haven’t yet been able to write anything up. I had to exit off the computer completely last night, because the skies were lighting up like daylight (so if the power ever went out – just wait a few seconds, and you could walk thru the light of the lightening.. extremely frequent and *dangerous* cloud to ground lightening. We had little rain, but an amazing light show.

    I’m usually afraid of storms like that, but the core of it was several miles away, so I just sat next to the window staring at the sky. I couldn’t even tape DOCTOR WHO, because of the storm (but I managed to get DW on the 2nd broadcast –and good thing too, because it was the 2nd of a 2-parter!).

    will try to type something up.. I keep getting interrupted or chased off the computer (today), so far…

  124. AlisaSG said

    >> I don’t believe that Lifetime is being straight up with us now or will be in the future.

    I don’t think they ever will be either.. BT is out of their norm // genre TV.

    hey Margaret, should I start plugging up some inspiration to get Sci-Fi or Bravo (Bravo might be the better option, but then Chum might not gain extra $$ from it).. to take-over Blood Ties, if Lifetime “gives up the ghost” literally..??

  125. Margaret said

    Tanya already said some time ago that unless a network could get the first season it was highly unlikely that they (other networks) would purchase it (paraphrasing, not her exact words). As we know, Lifetime has the rights to the first season, doubt they would give them up.

    The best thing we can do right now is continue to bury them in post cards until they scream uncle. I honestly don’t know what to do other than that because any source that I’ve talked to says that NO ONE has heard anything from Lifetime regarding additonal episodes. Keep it up with the comments and feedback on the lifetime board. I would say we still probably need to keep writing the advertisers from the first season when we can telling them how much we appreciate their support. Don’t know about the rest of you but I’m getting really tired of the silent treatment.

  126. Annalaise duChat said


    I believe you may be right about the LT demographic. They have to cater to their sponsors. Although I have noticed that a lot of the products being marketing during BT are for an older female demographic as well. So I should think that the diversity of the BT fans would be a plus in their decision to continue the show.

    We just have to keep the faith. We are doing all we can. What you suggested in your email may be a good idea. An influx of new sign-ups may show them that there is still interest.

    I tend to think, though, that whatever their decision is, they have probably made it already. In the TV industry things don’t just happen overnight. The wheels turn very slowly and there is a lot of lead time required.

    Has anyone considered that if LT doesn’t renew perhaps it will be a big hit on the Canadian station that is broadcasting it this fall and a second season will be made for them? We can keep showing our support and maybe get it in syndication on another network. At the very least, there is always Itunes. They seen to have their fingers on the pulse of what the people want. I’m willing to pay $1.99 an episode to see the BT gang.

    Keep the faith guys. I truly think we will prevail.


  127. Chery said

    Good points Annalaise and Margaret:

    I think that the problem is that CHUM television has just been bought out this summer, that might not be good for the new owners to pick up more seasons.

    The problem is that it will just be starting in Canada the end of August.
    They need to start filimg SOON! Otherwise folks it will be gone, the actors will move on and the rest, producers etc. will just move on to other projects.

    I think that Blood Ties is having bad timing issues.

    Annalaise duChat,
    >> Has anyone considered that if LT doesn’t renew perhaps it will be a big hit on the Canadian station that is broadcasting it this fall and a second season will be made for them?

    In fact, I’ve been mentioning several times on these blogs.. 😎

    I can bring up the subject on other forum web sites (non-BT related), but it’d really be helpful if more voices from the dedicated spectrum joined in. I really believe the advertisers actually read the other site specifically, but don’t reveal who they are.. and they have been looking at any links provided into the topic that is BLOOD TIES related.

    I keep getting strange *vibes* from seeing chunks of info showing up on the cousin (by genre type) web sites of those other sites (they’re not really connected, except by common topic being discussed).

  129. Margaret said

    Annalaise duChat you may be right about them deciding already but they certainly haven’t shared it with anyone. I just don’t understand what they are gaining by keeping us in the dark.

    Maybe if the worst happens and Canada carries the show we can see it through DVDs that are eventually dropped but I don’t think we can totally count on that either.

    I think we need to remember that Tanya says we are kicking ass with the postcards/letters. That being said someone must be noticing how many they are getting and telling her which means we need to step it up and make them notice some more. After all, its not over until the FAT LADY SINGS & I SURE DON’T FEEL A TUNE COMING ON YET!!!

  130. Margaret said

    I know that the sponsors read the emails we send as I got some nice response back from Weight Watchers and Slim Fast. Didn’t send it to the right place at Weight Watchers but the person assured me that they would forward it to marketing so don’t forget to write and tell the sponsors how we love their support of a show that we love.

    That is only partially true. (For EXAMPLE..)

    With the ever changing face of Tv, Programs *nowadays* can go on hiatus’ for more than a year and still come back in full swing with it’s original cast – depending on coordinating contract issues. The goals of an actor or anyone in the film / entertainment industry is to get their bills paid (one of my relatives is discovering this). If one project is unavailable, but in the works for a future return – they can return (and those determined enough have) at that later date.

    Stargate SG-1 is one of those examples. Even BSG (Battlestar Galactica) went thru this sort of cycle. But BSG is definitely ending when its 4th season is over. TPTB want it to go out on a *high* note, instead of a fizzle.

    Eureka was also rumored to have gone kaput, but it just had a little extra hiatus to gain more creative ideas. Stargate Atlantis went on hiatus for 6 months before more filming took place.. sometimes the writers need a brain rest & restoration breather in between to some degree. I know I certainly would.

    These situations are just little *hiccups* in the time-line of Tv programming.
    And seeing other stations in other countries gain popularity – just might be the key to get the one (network station) who’s harboring doubts a boost in jealousy.

    I’ve read the comments from when Showtime gave up SG-1 and Sci-Fi took over the series.. Showtime snubbed its nose at SG-1, and it actually soared into greater popularity (because it reached more of an audience) when Sci-Fi took the series over. When Sci-Fi decided to ditch SG-1, some of the former SHOWTIME viewers started making comments about moving the show back to SHOWTIME, but SG1 would lose viewers, because Showtime is a PAY channel in the world of CABLE Tv. Most cable-Tv viewers don’t want to pay the extra money for a waste of space in time and space. Plus, Sci-Fi network screwed TPTB who created SG-1, and made it impossible for them to move to another network – Period, due to the FINE PRINT at the bottom of their network contract.

    ..just some things to consider when pondering these issues.. for BLOOD TIES.

  132. Well I finally got the Lifetime site to cooperate. I had to make them send me an alternate password so I could log in and change my password back to my old one. *headdesk*

    Still very unorganized… But the pages are loading a little faster. The orange… It sucks. The layout… It’s confusing.

    Why don’t they just link the board page to the main show page???? It would be 100x easier to access the conversation board if they popped a link in the main Blood Ties page.

    I gotta go find lunch, the baby is looking like good eats again. D’oh!

  133. Margaret said

    Granted the decision may or may not have already been made but if we fail to keep it up with the post cards it will just confirm there wasn’t a fan base for it. I still think we need to try to bury them in the post cards. Someone has to be noticing or they wouldn’t have told Tanya Huff, would they? So if they noticed what we’ve sent so far just think how much more impressive it would be if we could give them more.

  134. Their poor mail room must look crazy after all of the post cards we’ve been sending in!

  135. Margaret said

    I’m getting as frustrated as the next person but I’m not willing to say die yet. I’m just getting madder and more determined.

    Change of subject: Has anyone noticed that every time Vicki says I’m all ears she takes off her glasses? I didn’t realize her sight and hearing were tied together with her glasses. I know, nitpicky. Sorry.

  136. It’s a frustration thing. I’m nearsighted as well and I know the first thing to pay fro my frustration or anger is my glasses. They pop on and off my face pretty often.

  137. AlisaSG said

    DRESDEN FILES has been officially cancelled

    these are the types of conversations about Sci-Fi’s way of doing things, and cancelling *favorite* or popular programs.. some info in some of the posts about FLASH GORDON — which hasn’t even aired yet!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Dresden Files Cancelled

    // FLASH GORDON forum news..
    BTW, “FLASH GORDON” (with Gina Holden) begins broadcasting on the Sci-Fi network this next Friday in DOCTOR WHO’s usual 9-pm (EST, NY, USA) time slot. DOCTOR WHO will be airing one hour earlier to accomodate the new arrival of FLASH GORDON.


    also noticed an add on the scifiwire page for something titled..
    EMBRACED BY DARKNESS {by Keri Arthur}
    .. about some guy who is half werewolf and half vampire..
    re: Riley Jenson / Guardian series

    the ad looks rathing tempting.. 😉

    our comments about Henry on BT must be hitting someone in the right chord out there..

  138. AlisaSG said

    that last line of mine.. maybe I should have instead said-

    “our comments about Henry on BT must be hitting someone in the right *VEIN* out there..”

  139. I gave my honey good grief last night. He donated blood yesterday afternoon; I played the jealous girlfriend as he told me about the smokin’ hot girl that took his blood. (all in jest)

    Then I told him that I’d have to stake him now because he let a vampire get him.

    He sat up in bed and looked at me weird as I nearly fell over laughing. Sometimes I think he’s going to hid all of my vampire stuff. Good luck though, I have tons of books and pictures! Mwahahaha!!

  140. Margaret said

    Just think of the poor assistant that gets them dumped on their desk.

  141. Madonna said

    Hi y’all,
    Just taking a break to say hi! Not a chance that this card is going out until Monday, so you’ve still got the rest of the day and probably most of the day tomorrow. I had to get a little creative to solve some technical problems.

    Let me just say this…… I honestly don’t think Kyle will ever look at a hen the same way again.

  142. oh me oh my… I cannot wait to see the card!

  143. Margaret said

    Question: In the episode Gifted when Henry is snacking on the girl at the bar, he stops to answer the phone and all the sudden his teeth are back to normal again. Do they retract that quick?

  144. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna — Any chance we could get a sneak peek at what you’re doing somehow? Mayba a quick scan emailed out? PLEEEEEAAASSSE? I can’t wait to see it!

  145. Yep! The thing about vampires is they move super quick between emotions. So one moment he can be all fangs and the next he’s ready to take home and meet mom.
    That is why they are so dangerous. Looks can be deceiving, especially with a vampire as old as Henry.

  146. lwildstar said

    I DID IT!!!! I did it, I did it….i finally got up the courage to post the first part of my short Henry and Vicki story. Heres the link……I hope I set up the account correctly…….

    I know you will be kind.

    I will be gone most of tomorrow so I won’t be able to check back in – you can leave me comments at my email if you like

  147. lwildstar said

    I’ll check back in tonight!

  148. DIZEY1 said

    Hi ya’ll just got back from running errands. Went to the feed store they were having pet adoption day , not too many pups there so we also went to a facility that’s a rescue center since Katrina, my mom and I left in tears, my heart feels sooo heavy right now and I just can’t shake it off. I want another dog but how do you go and pick one? God it was just so sad and how do people leave their animals behind. I’m crying now just writing this. Sorry I’m so blue right now, I’ll go watch “Eight Below” and that’ll help. How the hell can I rescue a dog when I can’t go there to pick one ?? Help I need Kyle to go pick one for me. 😉

    Anyway sorry ya’ll , Margaret sorry I hadn’t had a chance to check email and write back. I will continue to write postcards and overwhelm them until I hear them squeal. I BELIEVE it is working in our favor. I’m not in the film industry nor do I know how the wheels turn, so all we can do is what we’ve been doing so far. Trying to guess what they think or what they want from us, is anybodies guess. I will just stay the course and fight the good fight that I can, and WE WILL BE REWARDED. I have FAITH that good things come to those who wait. I’m gonna finish off this pack of postcards and pick up another **100** Monday and another Red Sharpie (almost dead) and start writing again.

    Alisa , the portable bowl is something he can fill wtih water when they’re out running etc, and empty it and fold it up, put in his pocket whatever, we’ve also got the Vamp toy and the dog cookie cutters too. I think he’ll be happy for his babies gifts. 🙂

    Madonna you rock my friend and I feel more like a *chick* than a hen if ya’ know what I mean 😉 JK Oh where did you wind up getting the Woof Vamp toy??

    PRTFVR****Glad you’re feeling better and PROP’S to the hubby !!! Good for him what does he teach ?? By faculty I assume he’s a teacher. Miss you 😦

  149. lwildstar, I loved it! Very original, and very detailed.

    I can’t wait to read the rest of it.

  150. Margaret said

    Actually I forgot a word when I was quoting Tanya: She said we were totally kicking ass……..

    That doesn’t sound too bad does it? Sounds good to me but she doesn’t know any more than we do yet. I’m sure she would tell us if she did.

  151. DIZEY1 said

    Iwildstar, OMG I loved it too!!!! I’m ready for the next part also. Who’s the girl?? Great job ! All you people can write. I’m so jealous 🙂 Yep looking forward to more. 😉

  152. vicki said


    We do old rock…fun rock…I am the only girl so I can occassionaly talk them into doing new stuff (I.E. Josh Stone, Michelle Branch, etc) But mostly I just sing the “divas” Pat Benatar, Bonnie Ratt, Aretha Franklin, etc..

    we do have a website and you can listen to short snips of songs..

    HEheh I know, the name is funny, but we have two eye doctors, a schoolteacher(me), a computer geek, a state worker, and a hairdresser in the band… we ARE a lost cause.

    Welll got to diva up again….small gig tonight…just a “trio” of us singing at a very “posh” garden party.. WHooo hooo..

  153. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret, I think It sounds very positive and she’s getting her info from somewhere sista’. You never know 😉

    We are the Warrior Princess’s and we do kick ass 🙂 😛

  154. Great, now I want to go play with my swords, but my wrist still aches. 😦

  155. lwildstar said

    I was just over at LifeTime and thought I wuld check back in.

    Dizey – Kel is one of my many charactors from my graphic novel days, one of my 13 alter egos (yes I have 13)…havent decided how far I want her to go in this…..

    Thanks for the comments! Didn’t expect any hits so soon!
    ……I was so nervous about posting this…I’m glad you like it….stay tuned I’ve Aready started on part two….I will tell you there is a surprise ending! Which will leave it open if I want to continue the story

    I went out antiquing with my mom today and purchased an antque English drop leaf table to replace my dinning room table with (it folds up smaller thatn the table I have now so I’ll have more room in the living room/dinning room – and I’ll still be able to have a “big” table for company), I got it for a great price – my mom couldn’t believe I just went “yes I want that” , – but we couldn’t fit it in the car so dad has to go back Thursday and pick it up for me. I guess I have caught the redecorating bug from mom.

    Anyway I am worn out from the heat so I am going to go take a nap and I’ll come back later tonight!

  156. Annalaise duChat said

    Iwildstar — Very,very nice! I sent you an email.

  157. Anzia said

    lwildstar- I sent you an email via ^_^

  158. Madonna said

    Hey everyone,

    Don’t have a whole lot of time to catch up on the posts, so I’ll go back later this evening and take a look.

    For all who are around….. I need a vote for the card. Patience…. you’ll see.

    Who do we hate more? Sinead or Mendoza? Voting ends sometime tomorrow….?


  159. Margaret said

    Sinead is just a girl who wants to have fun with Henry.

    Mendoza on the other hand is evil incarnate. Torturing Henry, letting him know that he had killed someone Henry once held important, he wouldn’t release Vicki, there are so many reasons. Biggest one is he is the monster, not Henry. Henry knows right and wrong, Mendoza knew the difference and bent it to suit his needs which didn’t make it right. He prayed on Mike’s jealousy of Henry so he could catch him.

  160. DIZEY1 said

    Oh man Madonna that’s close but I’d have to go with the MADD MONK MENDOZA 😦 Badddd man 🙂

  161. Mendoza…. *hisses*

  162. lwildstar said

    Sinad is obesessed – Mendoza was self serving, insain, and just plain EVIL.. 😡 I don’t know if that makes the evil frowny face or not…..

  163. lwildstar said

    oh piffel… guess it didn’t. 😦

    Just wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful comments, encouragement and the CONSTRUCTIVE critisim….I will look over all the notes and may re-vamp part one before I post part two (will let you know) – and the comments are going to help me make part two even better!

    Thanks again….I was soooo nervous about posting that, and now I feel much better about even trying to write it.

    I’ll check in tomorrow night after I drop my neice off at my parents….
    Thanks again!.

  164. Mendoza bad man!!! He hurt Henry.

    Booooo Hsssssssssss!

    Iwildstar–You GO girl!

  165. prtfvr said

    Ok. Since I posted early I finished the Gay comic, added new “tongue” pictures and reinstated the chat room.

    The Gay comic went to 18 chapters and it still doesn’t feel done buy my ass is tired and my wrists are numb. 🙂

    Since I haven’t been able to find the time to read everyone’s stories, would anyone be interested in sending me their files and I’ll post them all in one place on hens? That way everyone’s stuff could be together and I KNOW that I’ll eventually get the time to check my own site out.

    I always planned to do that anyone so maybe if I actually have something to put up, it won’t seem so silly just creating a blank page. So far I just have my stuff and I need it to be a little more rounded than that! I want others to read it too!

    Oh, this applies to everyone’s poetry, drink mixes, etc. Send it my way and I’ll get it out there for you.

  166. DIZEY1 said

    prtfvr, OMG that is so funny , thank you girl I needed that. My poor beautiful Henry, and I loved Mike’s I’m still thinking. Love the additional tongues 😛

    Going to jump into a hot bath see ya’ll in a bit.

    Love ya’ prtfvr, you’re great 🙂

  167. msgypsy said

    I finished dying a couple of pounds of wool, my fingernails are permanently blue of one shade or another, and I have a half hour to get out the door to a party and emergency rehearsal. (Unless you saw how many of us not only blew lines and cues last night, but messed up props and in once case just lost it in mid-scene, you’d understand the emergency…)

    But I had to comment on the Not Gay story. Why doesn’t Henry have to dress for his flashback? And in that scene of someone’s crotch and Vicki’s head (don’t ask, it’s funnier not knowing how innocent the scene really is) are you sure that’s not Mike’s crotch? I can’t tell the difference. Not that I, like, STUDIED both guy’s crotches or anything…

    Lwildstar, interesting start to the story. I can’t wait to read where it’s going from here.

    I’ll be back tomorrow, bloggerini.

  168. prtfvr said

    Hey DIZ!! How’s it going? Glad you liked the story and tongues. I still have some to post from Rifkind but I was on roll and posted just about every picture I had today. Man, I have a LOT!

    ms.gypsy: You made me laugh out load with that one! It’s Henry’s crotch, trust me. It’s from the episode, “Gifted” when they go into that woman’s house and there’s blood everywhere and the smell makes Henry hungry?

    Well, there’s old Vicki down on the floor collecting “evidence” and it struck me as funny if you took it out of context and narrowed the frame down some. 🙂

    And Kyle doesn’t have to dress for his flashback, he always looks good. In fact, I prefer him undressed to dressed but that might just be me.

  169. Margaret said

    If thats the picture from Gifted its Henry’s crotch and the reason I remember is that he has his hands in his pockets with fingers pointed downward (a position Kyle assumed during a photo session of up and coming young canadian stars) which I quickly researched since I was so far behind not knowing what the shocker was. lol

  170. AlisaSG said

    >> Who do we hate more? Sinead or Mendoza? Voting ends sometime tomorrow….?

    easy vote.. it looks unanimous to be MENDOZA.
    Henry still snacks on Sinead, so he’s able to forgive her. Plus, she’s the
    *beautiful side of Evil* ..if her motives are genuinely evil.

    Mendoza isn’t as easily forgivable.

  171. prtfvr said

    Damn Margaret! You’re good!! It so good to have company in the OCD parlor! 😉

  172. DIZEY1 said

    Prtfvr, that’s the scene after he’s was pulled away from the fence girl , she was a wench (sp) anyway, BTW love the fence feeding scene too 🙂 I love the way he…..wipes his mouth with his fingers. I guess that’s kinda twisted but I thought it was sexy 😉 And yes I’m waaaaay OCD (rewind,rewind,rewind) sick 😛

  173. Madonna said

    Hi ladies,

    Taking another break….

    Looks like it’s Mendoza then? Good that’s what I was thinking too. Just wanted to get the popular opinion.

    I got that vamp toy at

  174. Tango said

    prtfvr – OK, I didn’t see that twist coming! You kill me! I’ve captured some of the pictures to add to my own Kyle slide show – thanks! Regarding my email reply that rifkind fixed for me, No – I wasn’t trying to blow you off! Vista, on the other hand, well that’s another story.;-)

    Z – I’ve got you Nina on the brain. I’m watching Bride and Prejudice right now.
    It’s weird to see Sayid from Lost sing and dance in a musical when he is a military torture expert on Lost.

    Now I’m going to read lwildstars story.

  175. Anzia said

    Tango- ^_^ You’re watching B&P and i’m listening to it’s music. How’s that for coinkydinks? ^_^ I’ve never seen Lost so I don’t know the contexts. I knew he was in it (btw, one of my favorite scenes is where him and “darcy” are standing out on the balcony talking about the girls and they’re in their PJ’s…*DROOL* chest!).

  176. DIZEY1 said

    Tango happy to hear from you 🙂 Sorry you’ve been working so hard. Life getting in the way again, huh? 😉

    Hey are ya’ll ready for some football ?? My boys are playing tomorrow night, we’re gonna kick some butt 😉

    Thanks Madonna 🙂

  177. DIZEY1 said

    Hey *Z* I don’t of the movie/show ya’ll are talking about but Sayid (Naveen Andrews I thinkl) his character on Lost is one of the main ones and he’s very COOL 😎 even though he was in the Imperial Guard he’s not all bad 😉

  178. DIZEY1 said

    that was supposed to be I don’t….know what movie etc.

  179. Madonna said

    Hey Dizey

    August 18th…. Bengals play the Saints in preseason. Looks like we’ll be friendly rivals.

  180. DIZEY1 said

    Sounds good to me Brett Favre is a neighbor from Mississippi and I said that with a twang , caint figure out howda write it that way. He’s a very cool dude and what’s he there 17 years now ??

  181. Anzia said

    prtfvr- love the comic! Still think my fav pic w/ caption is the “Kissing your ball” one. Although, the pic of him coming up off the bed in that arch (you know which one I’m talking about) is the stuff dreams are made of. I think I squealed when I saw it!

    Madonna- i’m sure you already know the majority but I wanted to put my vote down for Mendoza too. Pretty much for all the reasons mentioned but also ’cause he’s a jealous creepy being. Sinead, while I don’t like her for touching Henry, I can forgive (sorta) ’cause I know the feeling. ^_^

    Diz, Himmie,- how are you guys doing!? I don’t actually get to “talk” to ya’ll much anymore 😦 I hope all is well.

    Claire- Hey, I hope the move is going/went well. When you’re done, you should totally take a “me” night…or moment! Totally deserve it love!

  182. Madonna said

    I have no idea how long Brett Favre has been with the Packers. I don’t follow other teams. Our Carson Palmer looks really good this year though. He doesn’t seem to show any lingering effects from his knee injury a couple of years ago. That broke everyone’s heart here in Cincy. It happened in our first playoff game in probably 15 years.

  183. Anzia said

    Bride & Prejudice is a Hollywoodized bollywood version of Pride & Prejudice. It’s REALLY good. Just as a Jane Austen fan (as opposed to an austen & bollywood fan) it gets the tension and love between “elizabeth” & Darcy perfect.

  184. prtfvr said

    Hey!! This is how small my world is! I finally figured out how to post links to other websites on hen’s so I went nuts!! Links everywhere!! I’m so excited! I learned something new today! 🙂

  185. Madonna said

    I love this guys. Where else can you find Blood Ties, Bollywood and Football in three posts?

  186. DIZEY1 said

    Prtfvr what do you mean ??

  187. Madonna said

    Hi ho, Hi ho, It’s off to work I go……. Whistling…… Hi ho, hi ho, ho.

  188. Anzia said

    Madonna- we are an eclectic bunch that’s for sure. ^_^

  189. DIZEY1 said

    I know we’re another melting pot 😉 I need to check out some of the Bollywood stuff you’ve been speaking of Miss.Z 🙂

  190. prtfvr said

    DIZ: I mean that I just figured out how to put links up and I’m so excited about this minor thing. They weren’t there when you looked last time so I imagine that’s why you don’t know what I’m talking about. I just published the revised page about 20 minutes ago.

    Don’t forget that hen’s chat is back.

  191. Anzia said

    Diz- just say the word I’ll have you drowning in sexy Indian men shaking what God gave them in such a way that you’re libido will go into overdrive!

  192. DIZEY1 said

    Hey I got totally stoked when I figured out how to put a pic under my name. I’m easy it takes very little in a field I know nothing about to pop my cork **

  193. DIZEY1 said

    *Z** that sounds dangerous 🙂 In a good way of course 😉 Are these flicks available on Netflicks ??

  194. Anzia said

    pop your cork huh? LMAO…I don’t have a snappy comeback for that one… it’s just perfect on it’s own…

  195. Anzia said

    Some are. I just use youtube

  196. prtfvr said

    Nice to see the ladies chatting over at hen’s. That was quick!

    I just posted the cast photo for anyone who wants to reminiss (sp?) about Kyle, the shocker, and his puppy. 😉

  197. Anzia said

    okay I can’t get to the chat 😦 It kicked me out! and won’t let me back in

  198. DIZEY1 said

    Me either I thought I did something

  199. Anzia said

    Nope… i think we crashed the program…

  200. Anzia said

    Did you say something that I missed or were you kicked out about the same time?

  201. DIZEY1 said

    I hit the enter button and poof we we’re gone.

  202. prtfvr said

    Should I be paranoid that it crashed as soon as I left? In the immortal words of Scooby Doo: “Ruh Roh”

  203. DIZEY1 said

    Ooh but I do need Hrith forgot how to spell his name. The link for the Youtube vid. I’d liek to watch him dane again 😉

  204. DIZEY1 said

    Res Rhaggy , we might have booboo’d

  205. Anzia said

    same here… i wonder if we hit it at the same time? I was goign to tell you that there are some naughy bollywood songs that I’d be more than happy to share… ^_^ B-wood naughty and my BT story naughty are worlds apart but… well.. i still like it. ^_^

  206. Anzia said

    Hrithik (only forgot the I-K) is here

    Naughty lyrics w/ a fav actress (Kajol) and a fav actor (Aamir Khan) is here:

    Same actress/actor from previous clip but a nice romantic song:

  207. Anzia said

    Hrithik dancing again… well not as much as in the previous clip. When he gets on his knees in front of the girl (she’s in Bride & prejudice btw) I melt. I SOOO want a man to do that in front of me!

  208. DIZEY1 said

    Hey just went and did my daily IMDB duty cuz’ Henry told me to @ the Hen’s crib. Chatroom back up I guess we didn’t kill it thank god. Cool beans on the video going to check it out and I’ll be back.

  209. Anzia said

    Cool… I did see that chat was back. ^_^ I was hanging out there… I guess I could go back and see if anyone else shows up. ^_^

  210. DIZEY1 said

    *Z* man that guy is waaaay fine . OMG the six pack and he’s got some smooth moves too. HOT !! Very Hot 😉

  211. Anzia said

    Diz- I KNOW! His wife is VERY VERY VERY lucky to curl up with THAT every night! *drools*… Ooops… sorry… 😉

  212. prtfvr said

    The last thing I learned myself tonight was how to make an email account on hen’s. It worked!! Woo hoo! I just have it forwarded to my normal prtfvr account so I know that works.

    If anyone wants to be experimented on, let me know and I’ll make an account for you so that we can test whether or not the server supports its own email. Send me an email on

  214. Anzia said

    Vicki- *takes a number and stands in line* Do we know which number he’s servicing right now?

  215. DIZEY1 said

    Ruh Roh again it crashed hope it wasn’t me

  216. Anzia said

    Okay, we broke the chatroom again…

  217. prtfvr said

    What the hell happened this time? I wasn’t downloading anything. Sheesh. Time to call tech support!

  218. Anzia said

    Diz- maybe it’s the combo of you and me 😉 seeing as we’re the only common factor…

  219. vicki said

    hey…great..I thought it was just me

  220. DIZEY1 said

    I know and I bow 🙂

  221. Madonna said

    It broke for me too.

  222. Anzia said

    Diz- you’re a hoot and a half

    Vicki- that’s what I thought the first time. I figured my computer had spazzed on me. ^_^

  223. vicki said


    anyway…it is almost 1 am here..and I have to rest….two nights and two gigs in a row..I am beat..

    Here is my birthday greeting for Kyle…

    Kyle…Happy Birthday!!
    We love your show and your character.
    You are a very talented actor and I hope your day is filled with joy and happiness…
    By the way..Is it Oct yet???

    Vicki Hess
    Fan waiting…and waiting

  224. DIZEY1 said

    We we’re smoking up the screen. Maybe it got overheated with all that hot Henry talk. Fences, bad girls, girls that smell nice, Henry’s crib floweth over.

  225. vicki said

    thank goodnesss..I am glad I am not a jinx…

  226. Anzia said

    G’night vicki

    It’s a bit hard to adjust from the chatroom to gypsy’s… the instant gratification that you mentioned earlier Diz…

  227. prtfvr said

    One of the messages it gave me was that the server was busy. Well, no DUH! I don’t think that’s it though because I have a huge amount of space over there. Not to mention that we’ve had more people than that on there at one time before and it didn’t crash.

    You’d think I’d have one day that I wasn’t trouble shooting some damn computer problem!

  228. vicki said

    goodnight all…

    catch you tomorrow

  229. Anzia said

    Don’t you mean Henry’s Hen House? (wow, sounds like a restraunt… wonder what would be on the menu…)

  230. prtfvr said

    ‘Henry’s Crib’? ROTFLMAO! DIZ, you are wise, girl!

  231. prtfvr said

    Night vicki.

  232. Madonna said

    I’m off to work on the card again… Bye girls!

  233. prtfvr said

    TTFN, Madonna.

  234. DIZEY1 said

    Very Cool Ms. Vick the Diva ,and glad your baby had a great b’day 🙂

    **Z** I’m here to please, and entertain when I can.

  235. Anzia said

    Chatroom’s back…

  236. prtfvr said

    I’d be on the menu at the Hen’s House if Henry was eating. 🙂

  237. Anzia said

    Diz- You know, Henry said the same thing to me the other night…

  238. prtfvr said

    You know what? I’m not even going to the chat room. I’ve gotta go to bed. Later ladies!

  239. DIZEY1 said

    Later Madonna let us know if ya’ need anything.

    How many Hens ya’ think Henry’s got in his garage??

  240. DIZEY1 said

    That’s impossible he was with me………..OMG did I do something with…..NORMAN???? Again !!! 😉

  241. Anzia said

    NIght Madonna & Prtfvr!

    *ponders* Does henry having Hens mean he’s a breast man?

  242. DIZEY1 said

    Oooh Prtfvr if Henry was eating eh?? You badddd girl, Love ya and sleep good XOXOXOX

  243. Anzia said

    LMAO- Norman huh… there’s one way to figure out which is which. It’s something Norman can’t change and something Henry is very proud of. I’ll let you figure out what it is. ^_^

    *thinks* maybe I should’t have said that “breast” comment… hmm… over the line?

  244. DIZEY1 said

    If I were a betting woman I’d say white meat, although Kyle could be a butt man. Hell who cares I like his…….all of it not a bad part on that dude, it’s all good.

  245. DIZEY1 said

    Hmmmmmm (evil grin ) 😉 I do love Norman though something strangely attractive about that freaky boy.

  246. Anzia said

    I’m in a very naughty mood… so I apologize in advance for anything I might type out…

    You are so right… the only that has that he shouldn’t is clothes!

  247. Anzia said

    That may be true but when it all comes out, Henry just hits that special place while Norman… he falls just a few inches short.

  248. DIZEY1 said

    Well Z girl after midnight here and Henry’s waiting I hear his stomach growling , ok maybe not his stomach, and he’s got a glazed look in his eye 😛

    Sleep well and will check in tomorrow.


    reves doux d’Henri

  249. Anzia said

    *blushes* okay… I’ll be good… I think…

    *wonders* what are the others going to say tommorrow morning when they read this? They’re gonna think we went nuts… well… me at least…

  250. Anzia said

    Night Diz. Have fun and don’t do anything I wouldnt… Okay, so that doesn’t leave much out but still… 😉

  251. DIZEY1 said

    Never too naughty for gutter girl, everyone’s welcome at my place it’s fun down here. There’s nowhere to go but up 🙂 😉

  252. Anzia said

    I’ve got the houseboat remember? Didn’t I give you a set of keys?

  253. DIZEY1 said

    They’ll say man we missed out some FUN!! Night dawlin’ I bid you adieu’

  254. Anzia said

    G’night love. Have sweet dreams!

    Since everyone else is going. I’ll leave to. Talk at ya’ll in the AM

  255. Anzia said

    Diz- I sent you an email to your account. I hope that’s the right email address…otherwise someone just got an interesting letter… just thought I’d let ya know in case it wasn’t. ^_^

  256. Margaret said

    Geez, you guys had a party last night and I missed it. Darn.

    On a totally different subject-Don’t know how you feel about the Bounty Hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman but they were being interviewed this morning (about his problems in Mexico) and his wife said that their fans were incredibly helpful with all the letters, emails with case laws, etc. They said it MADE A DIFFERENCE.

    So ladies there is power in numbers, we need to continue with all the postcards, letters, etc. because I believe we can make a difference, we need quantity and we need to keep it up tell they scream.

  257. lwildstar said

    wow I go to bed early and you head straight for the gutter – and with out me!
    Well I’m getting ready to go pick up my neice – I just wanted to check in first – for a little adult conversation! ha!

    talk at you tonight.

  258. AlisaSG said

    >> On a totally different subject-Don’t know how you feel about the Bounty Hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman but they were being interviewed this morning (about his problems in Mexico) and his wife said that their fans were incredibly helpful with all the letters, emails with case laws, etc. They said it MADE A DIFFERENCE.

    I saw it, and heard him a few weeks ago on Glenn Beck’s (CNN) program. I think Duane and his wife were personally inspired by all of the prayers and support they were receiving from everywhere about their situation (both are Christians).

    LIFETIME stated on their own website before their new makeover, not to send e-mails to support programming, but postcards — only.. no letters, no cards, just postcards (because those are easier to read, they’re only made of one duplex index card, that is so big, so nothing can be hidden in envelopes (like powder, etc)

  259. Chery said

    Margaret you are so right.

    We need to send post cards to Life Time, and Fangs, then post on their blog, we know they are lurking.

    Also everyone, letters and e-mails will be better served sent to advertisers of Blood Ties, we know they respond because so few feople write or e-mail them. So do not forget everyone to contact one of the advertisers.

    Off to write my daily 20………………………………

  260. prtfvr said

    Hey, Margaret and I were just talking about Kyle’s birthday present and she mentioned that Scribble said that the cast wasn’t around right now so there’d be no place to send it. I thought that we might do better to send it to Kyle’s actual manager instead.

    What do you think?

  261. Margaret said

    You know the phrase I think you know what I thought you said…..per prtfvr and my conversation….SCRIBBLES DIDN’T SAY THAT-someone else said the cast left around May as soon as the show went on hiatus.

  262. AlisaSG said

    isn’t it better to go as direct as possible (thus, whoever is Kyle’s current manager might have better access to fowarding his B-day gift), than to have the studio forward it onward? anyone sending something to the studio itself might need to send an extra envelope/box or whatever that is already paid, so that the studio doesn’t either just dump it in a corner or have to pay the extra forwarding cost themselves.

    I used to have to send SASE’s all the time to anyone involved in receiving hundreds of replies, so that the burden of the cost wasn’t on their shoulders. It makes sense too, plus, it’s basic business courtesy to do that, as well.

    I’m not sure how it works with gifts. Tanya said in a reply to Margaret way back–
    “Margaret — About fanmail…

    Send it to this address and the wonderful people at Kaleidoscope will see it gets where it needs to go.”

    (Insert Star Name Here)
    c/o Kaleidoscope Entertainment Inc.
    23 Lesmill Road,
    Suite 201
    Toronto, Ontario,
    M3B 3P6

    but that’s only for fanmail, not special gifts. I don’t know if the same address would apply in birthday gifts (and that’s for any of the BT cast).

  263. AlisaSG said

    okay, Tango or msgypsy will have to pull my last note out of limbo –it had the address Tanya suggested and more info about sending stuff out to the cast..

  264. Margaret said

    Remember how we once met over at Henry’s Hens. Can we try that again tonight at 10:00 EST? Since we would have been watching BT then (at least most of us might have been).

    Don’t forget to be emailing sponsors and writing postcards. Which is what I’m leaving to do for a while.

  265. Annalaise duChat said

    Geez you guys, I was here off and on all day yesterday and it was dead. The minute I go to do something else you guys have a party! What’s up with that?

    Are we meeting at the Chat Room tonight? Sounds good see you there. Got to go do laundry & weed the driveway. Yuk!

  266. Annalaise duChat said

    I just checked and I’m confused. There is no link to enter the chatroom? Is there a problem or am I missing something?

  267. Madonna said

    Good morning….

    Annalaise, there is a place on the main page on Henry’s Hens to enter the chat.

  268. DIZEY1 said

    Good morning my chix 🙂 Had a great night’s sleep and 2nd night in a row I had Henry/Kyle dreams how wierd is that, not complaining by any means 😉 No prob Chery and Margaret my postcard partners in crime, mine will be filled out and dropped in a mailbox today before I go play in the pool 😉

    Prtfvr , I gotcha on the manager thingy. How do we find out who and where said manager is??

    **Z** I got the email this morning but had’nt had a chance to look @ the video’s yet. I’ll try and check them out later today but I’m sure I’ll like them if they’re anything like the 1st one I saw. Very Cool and Hot guy 😉

    I’ll be back a little later, beeee gooooood 😛

  269. AlisaSG said

    Please check your e-mail. Just sent 2 out a few minutes ago from me
    (signed AlisaSG)..

    this one is for Kyle..
    subject: 08/05/2007 re: August 24 bt-day, Kyle
    sent: Sun 8/5/2007 12:05 PM

    and the 2nd one is for you about the other one for Kyle..
    subject: 08/05/2007 Kyle’s e-card
    sent: Sun 8/5/2007 12:06 PM

  270. AlisaSG said

    my other post is still in blog limbo.. will check back later.

  271. Annalaise duChat said

    Found it. Thanks. My bookmark was to the second page not the main page and I couldn’t find a link to get me to the home page.

    prtfvr – You might want to consider putting a link back to the home page from each of the other pages for ease of navigation. At least from the Sunday funnies main page.

    Just sharing some info I learned in a pricey web design seminar my boss sent me to: Place a navigation bar on each page of the site so your viewers can move around within the site easily. It can be as simple as listing the names at the bottom (like you have in I’m not gay) and link back to the other main pages in your site.

    You’ve really come a long way in your web design. You should be really proud of what you’ve done.

    angie has set a little chat room for blood ties

  273. Margaret said

    For those of you on Eastern Standard Time Kyle is on (2:45 p.m.) Sex and the Single Mom, Lifetime Movie Network, small part, not bad though.

  274. prtfvr said

    Hey Annalaise: I know that I need to add a lot of navigation buttons. I just worked on it so much yesterday that by the time I realized I needed some buttons, I decided to go to bed. I will put them on there though, I promise. Thanks for the suggestion.

    DIZ, I’ll email Kyle’s manager’s info to your hen’s email account. I was going to post it here but Margaret tipped me off to the fact that te manager might not want the information out there for everyone. It’s soon to follow.

    I’ll do my best to sign in to hen’s chat room at 10 tonight, Eastern time. 🙂

    Does angie have a chat room somewhere else? I never heard about it before.

  275. AlisaSG said

    >> DIZ, I’ll email Kyle’s manager’s info to your hen’s email account. I was going to post it here but Margaret tipped me off to the fact that te manager might not want the information out there for everyone. It’s soon to follow.

    I know this is a bit late, but my vanishing post (the one that’s still in blog limbo) was what Tanya suggested. I do think it is wise advice to not post Kyle’s manager info out on the web. If it was already somewhere (more easily) accessible, it would have been posted somewhere on the main BT site or probably at BloodTiesCentral.

    Until that one shows up, the only other item mentioned in there was whether or not an additional paid *thingy* with postal label needs to be included if the package should end up getting forwarded elsewhere. Question then would be how much would that cost, plus how it should be sent, so that Kyle will receive his gift in time.

  276. I feel left out! You all had a party without me 😦

    I’ll try and pop by the chat tonight, I even write a post-it to remind myself.

    I’ll be around for part of the afternoon. I am going to attempt to work on my book. Lets hope my wrist holds up for that long.

  277. AlisaSG said

    I think LIFETIME’s web site is either down, or packed with traffic.
    Their main link wasn’t working and neither were any for Blood Ties.

  278. vicki said

    hey all…

    I had a good night sleep and I am ready for the day…

    My newly turned four year old said this morning on the way to church…
    Mommy if I am four today do I turn five tomorrow. LOL

    They say the darnest things….heheh
    Are we meeting inn the chat room tonight???

    I am soo there…10pm on Sundays is soo depresssing anymore..I need moral support

  279. lwildstar said

    boy have you been busy while I’ve been out. Took my neice to see Hairspray – It was little above her in parts, but it was a fun movie and has a very positive meessage so I was happy to take her.

    I did a little tweeking to Part One – link below – if you want to see the changes.

    I’m already reworking a couple of parts in Part Two – hoping to have ti ready in another week or so……I may come back and tweek part one alittle more.

    Thanks everyone for your comments!

    FLASH GORDON (Gina Holden) update.. news talk.

    the show hasn’t even aired yet, and the critics are already killing it! FLASH GORDON may have been contracted for 22 eps, but most of those might only make it to DVD instead, if the below info holds true.

    found this news item (see below for link)..
    and thought I’d add – how’d I know they’d say this??

    >> If FLASH GORDON really wants to find a place on my TiVo Season’s Pass list, it’s going to have to really kick it up a notch in the bad guy department. Or risk being cancelled in, well… a flash.

    for complete article, please click on the link at:

  281. lwildstar said

    I think Lifetimes new and improved website is having issues – loggedin but couldn’t get to the Blood Ties message board – kept getting the page not found message. SO I tried to go to another page and the whole thing locked up! Will try again tomorrow on the super computer at work.

    Flash Gordon – can’t find the link to the artical I saw, but they panned the actor playing Flash – saying that he was just one more in a long line of “poor choices for Flash”. They liked Gina thou – I’ll see if I can find the link and post it.

    Well now I’m all frustrated so I’m off to print postcards for tomorrow!

  282. vicki said

    I am having the same trouble lwildstar….
    I am logged on but when I try to go to another page it just sits there….

    So frustrating….ARggggggggggg

  283. Margaret said

    lwildstar: I thought it was great the first time, its still great. Wish I had your talent.

  284. Laurel said

    I’m sure glad someone was having fun yesterday. I had a really bad one, almost landed in the ER again. Thankfully my husband (Family Practice, MD) was home and could talk to the doctor for me. Even with his help the day was a total loss, couldn’t read, watch tv, nothing. I did leave my i-pod playing episodes of BT for background dreamscaping and had some fairly good dreams.
    I go to the Dr this week and am afraid he will want to do surgery. 😦 I really don’t want to end up gutted like a fish, so prayers and good thoughts would be accepted. I’m pretty much terrified by the whole business. Sorry to be such a downer, I’ll snap out of it when my meds wear off, no doubt.

  285. AlisaSG said

    Madonna, are you okay?

    it’s been slightly more than six hours since I last heard from you. Please let us know if you’re still there — or if all is alright.. I’m starting to get concerned (trying not to say the word *worry*).. 😦

    also, I sent a 3rd e-mail out a few hours ago regarding a quickie note about the other 2..


  286. lwildstar said

    Laurel – hang in there – remember your blog family is sending you hugs and prayers!

    Thanks Margaret – I took some of the suggetions I got last night and worked them in.

    Well I’ve had it with Lifetime – I’ve been waiting 20 minutes for the site to let me log out!
    Well I’m off to work on part two – my head is spinning! THis is so adictive!

    night all!

  287. AlisaSG said

    ((((((((((*Laurel, hugs & prayers*))))))))))

    is it something a special diet can correct, or something else internal?

  288. vicki said

    Laurel….hugs and prayers for you…

    What is wrong????BTW

  289. Tango said

    Well ladies, I’ve been trying to catch up on reading everyone’s great fanfic. Z, lwildstar & Lady A – you all amaze ne with your talents! Thanks for giving my Btless summer several dashes of spice. Please keep them coming!

    Went Back to School shopping for my nieces today. No sales tax weekend! Z – Kohl’s was one of the stores I did some damage in. Yes, I even got myself a little something.

    Laurel – Honey I am sorry that you are feeling puny again. You definitely have my positive thoughts coming your way, and I will send up some power prayers for you now. Got a kick how you said thoughts and prayers are accepted – like Visa and Mastercard.

    Rifkind – I picked you up a little something today that was something you can keep on your desk, but I still want to find something Alabama specific for you to have as well.

    Alisa – I freed your post from purgatory.

    Here’s Henry’s Hens website address:
    for all those who are going to be checking in at 10PM EST. I’m going to try to be there.

    prtfvr – you are getting real snazzy on your website. I bet you’ve been having a lot of fun. It is really taking shape!

    Z – Bride and Prejudice was good last night. It’s a little corny, in the way that Grease is corny, but it was very entertaining. When they would be dancing my husband and I would look at each other and laugh, yet if he got up to go get something to drink he wanted to know what he missed. Dizey – yes, you can get it from Netflix, that’s where I got it.

    Dizey – you are right, work has been getting in the way of my blog life. I can’t complain though, I am doing really well right now. Trying to make enough production to make the Monaco trip next year.

  290. Laurel- hope you’re feeling better soon.

    lwildstar.- Nice job on the rewrite.

  291. Tango said

    Margaret – just tried to send you a funny email, but it bounced back.

  292. Tango said

    Madonna – I can’t wait to see the logos you are working on. Are we going to be able to see everyones? I’m hoping I can use mine possibly as my avatar or as part of my email signature. Thank you for offering to do this. I think that is so cool! Wish I had your talent.

  293. Margaret said

    Laurel-hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Tango-Try or is that the one you tried? Let me know. The other one I had a long time ago takes things sometimes and sometimes doesn’t. I’m thinking I should stay with the 32955 one. We had a list of emails a long time ago. Might not be a bad idea to redo it and include the new people. Who did the first one?

  294. AlisaSG said

    >> Alisa – I freed your post from purgatory.

    thank you! 🙂

    I see, I see.. no more limbo hell for that ‘lil bugger.
    >> AlisaSG (posted August 5, 2007 @ 7:50 am )

    must have been Kaleidoscope’s address that did it.

  295. Tango said

    Gypsy – I know that you’ll appreciate this since you are about as big a fan of Vista as I am… not. Vista was the problem with people who were replying to emails I sent to them. Thanks to rifkind, we got it fixed. Just thought I’d let you know in case the problem finds its way to your new computer. Which email program do you use – Outlook or Windows Mail? I’m using Windows Mail.

  296. Tango said

    Alisa – that could have been it. Honestly – I’m not sure what sets it off sometimes. I will sometimes have links and things are fine, other times it is an actual address like what you had, and off it goes.

  297. Tango said

    Margaret – I actually had both of them set up in my BT group listing. So I just deleted the one that bounced and kept the one that you posted above. So you should have gotten it at that one.

    Dizey is the one that did the list of addresses, it is an older list and probably doesn’t have Madonna, Cree and some of the other newbies. Dizey, could you update that list and send it out to everyone? Please put that I’m from Birmingham, AL on it as my copy didn’t include where I was from. It would be neat to have birthdates on it, if that isn’t asking too much, but its a great list to have jus the way it is.

  298. AlisaSG said

    something tells me LIFETIME’s web site crashed.
    it still won’t open on the main site link.

  299. Margaret said

    Or possibly in their typical manner of not telling us anything do you think they took it down themselves to rework it after they heard all the banshee calls about it being too slow, too difficult, tooo……, etc.

  300. vicki said

    I think you are right about the LIfetime site…it wont even open now…wierd..

    Oh well….it is almost 8 o clock here…when are we meeting in the chat room??

    Remember I am on Eastern Standard time..

  301. Margaret said

    10:00 p.m. EST

  302. jpbaci1 said

    it is augt if they dont start shooting there will be no BT till next summer at the best

  303. Madonna said

    Oh Laurel, I’m so sorry you feel so bad. Hope the meds help and that you feel better soon. (((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))

    I’m around, I’ve just been at the drawing board more today than at the desk. I have received your emails but I haven’t read them yet. I’ll let you know when I do. Thanks!

    It’s 8 o’clock ET where I’m at too. I think they are planning the chat in two hours time. I’ll try to stop by for a little while myself.

    loves history,
    We haven’t heard from you in a while. Hope you’re still doing OK. Sorry for all the Kyle pandemonium this past week.

  304. vicki said


  305. Rifkind said

    About Lifetime..
    Well alot of places do maintenance on applications on the weekends.. so maybe Lifetime is too?? Maybe?

  306. Tango said

    Hey Dizey – was Kyle on disc 4 of Beautiful People? I’ve got it in my queue, but I’ll delete it if he’s not in it.

  307. lwildstar said

    AduChat – Thanks!

    Tango – Thanks!

    Everyone – I can only get to the home page and Once I got as far as the BT message board but the minute I hit submit “poof” it all went away – then I couldn’t get back to the home page, took twenty minutes to get back so I could log out! Boy someone over there should be fired for their “brillant” ide for this so called up grade!

    Well I have spent the last couple of hours working on Part two – first draft is done! Couldn’t believe how fast I wrote it – but now’s the hard part – edits. I figure another week before It will be ready to post…Dani – I’ll email yo a copy when I think its ready.
    Thanks again.

    Ok its almost nine – I want to see if I can finsh Harry Potter before I go to bed.

    Talk to you tomorrow!

  308. Tango said

    lwildstar – post your website again please.

  309. Tango said

    for the jewelry

    whew! ..just please don’t freak out over the 3rd e-mail.. I started to send it with the 2nd one, but hesitated and then rewrote it later and sent it out separately. Nothing to do with Kyle, BTW. I was just hoping aol didn’t gobble it up.


    OH, and
    lwildstar, I think I figured out why we had such bad storms the other night–
    it was the opening night of the NJ State Fair (a big to do in our area). It’s our annual *avoid those roads at all times* — only during that week.

    I think I’ve also seen 2 celebrities shopping in our local supermarket, from visiting at the fairgrounds, too (yesterday).

    I think my life is an open book by now.. 😉

    Tango – here you go again

    Thanks for the interest. Still havent decided if I’m going to make the cell phone charms or key rings yet – been busy with the writing!

    10 more post cards for tomorrow – I’ve got 100 on the way!

    AlisSG – so the NJ State Fair was the cause huh? ok then – whats the casuse of the heat wave we have now?

    Hi ya’ll a little tipsy hung out in the pool all day and had a few cold beers. Anyway Tango I do need to update the email list. So I’ll ask m’ladies if you’d please send mea @ your most current email/ birthdates etc that you’d want on the list and I’ll update and send everybody a new copy 😎 COOL?

    Prtfvr got the email and replied let me know wassup ??

    Laurel my sweet pea I hope you heal soon 🙂 No problem my blood sista’ I’ll add you to that prayer list and you’re good to go. Angels are watching you as we speak 😉

  315. DIZEY1 said

    Jpbaci1 welcome , and I think they started filming last year about this time, however I could be wrong it won’t be the first time 🙂

  316. Tango said

    Welcome jpbaci1! Newcomer or long-time lurker? It seems like I read somewhere they started filming in October I thought. And I also thought that they ended filming in April, so there’s still hope. I haven’t given up the ghost yet. Possitive thinking – right Diz?!!!!

  317. DIZEY1 said

    You got it Tango 😉

    Whoo hoooo ****** 🙂 😎

  318. DIZEY1 said

    I want it so bad that I pushed production up by what **2** months. Definitely positive thinking 😉

  319. Tango said

    Back to the question I had earlier for you, is Kyle on disc 4 of Beautiful People?

  320. DIZEY1 said

    Ooops had few brews while floating in the pool today sorry I’m a liitle sloooooww.

    No ma’am don’t waste your money if it’s Kyle you’re looking for he wasn’t on after I think the 2nd one.

  321. Tango said

    I know what you mean. Can you imagine what we are going to be like when October finally does get her and we have fresh BT? It will be like a room full of kids who have been ODing on candy and are hyped up on chocolate! What out for any males close by! 😉 Dizey I suggest you find you a good man to have in mind for when the show starts back. I hate to see the headlines – “Sex-Crazed New Orleans Woman being held for jumping male customers in a local appliance store” 🙂

  322. Tango said

    I had a feeling you were going to say that – I’ll delete it from my Netflix queue. Dang it! 😦

  323. DIZEY1 said

    Tango I took Gypsy’s advice and got *Better than chocolate* Christina in a whole different light. She was younger than also, but it could have been the short hair 😉 Rent it it was good 🙂

    Je me demande comment Madmoiselle Claire a fait avec se déplacer.

    Elle est une forte et la femme courageuse ses enfants ont un grand modèle de rôle. J’admire Claire.

  324. DIZEY1 said

    I know , it’s been waaaay too long sista’. I told a friend of mine a while back that God Bless the man that I choose. It’ll be a great day for both of us 😉 😛

  325. DIZEY1 said

    See that’s me kissing Henry under my pic’, it just appears thta like I look like Vicki, you see, trick photography 🙂 it’s all in the angels ya know ?

    Blood Ties is set to premier on Friday Sept. 14th in Canada and should run the full 22 eps complete. Ok it hits Canada in a little over a month away, they haven’t seen anything of this show yet so just imagine once they get a look at our Vampire. Holy Merde’ 😉 🙂 😛

  349. DIZEY1 said

    Z we all get to be a little naughty every now and then. Gotta get rid of that “tension” somehow , somewhere. 😉 I’ll try and look at the other videos tomorrow when I get home from work. I’ll be ready for a break and that’ll be a good distraction 😉

  369. AlisaSG said

    good golly molly! 😀
    thought I was reading the chat conversation over here for a moment there..

    >> AlisSG – so the NJ State Fair was the cause huh? ok then – whats the casuse of the heat wave we have now?

    >> >> lwildstar says,
    >> >> “whats the casuse of the heat wave we have now?”

    >> That’s easy…… Kyle/Henry whatever your preference. Winks….

    funny!! 😛
    actually, I was going to say the NJ State Fair (again..)

    It’s a tradition out here to blame the weather on the Fair regardless of what it is — unless it really is nice weather. Horses and riders suffer the most in the heat. The horses also get spOOked during the severe thunderstorms, because they’re all out in the open (they have a roof as shelter, but that’s it). Rider class shows get canceled during the really bad rains, and people traveling cross country (literally) need to bring two sets of seasonal clothing with them (cold 50’s temps and hot 90’s temps), just in case.

    The miniature and costume classes are the best (most fascinating) to watch.
    I think there’s also a shelty (dog) show.

    ..and there used to be an exotic belly-dancing club show. (that’s why it became such a HUGE attraction).. not to also mention the (exotic costume and) Arabian (horse) classes..

    ..anyway, when I say the weather gets blamed because it’s a tradition to do so– the natives just laugh “what else do you expect? it’s FAIR week!! Of course it’s gonna rain!” it’s the biggest event in the entire county, where half of the county takes off for vacation that week.. if they’re not working in a vending booth (usually volunteer work), they’re out visiting the place with their families and friends.

    only on rare years has it not rained a single day the entire week – 2 (years out of 35) that I remember. Instead, it was a scorcher heat wave.

    funny, now we can blame Henry.. incognito on one of those exotic costume classes? I heard Henry is an accomplished equestrian (horse) rider .. so it could be possible.. 😀

  370. prtfvr said

    Well shit!

    either it died again or i got kicked out…

  375. vicki said

    I ve seen Big Love…I know LOL

  376. prtfvr said

    Well, he’d be very clean with all that washing!

  377. Anzia said

    from the reaction i’m guessing the former…

  378. prtfvr said

    I’d be his beck and call girl.

  379. DIZEY1 said

    I second that emotion PRtfvr

    Well kids it’s 10:15 and I ‘ve got to go to the gym in the morning. Love ya’ll , be good and “Wear something nice” 😉

    I’m going back to my story. Had a ball.

  384. Anzia said

    So, I got an error msg saying that gypsy’s was having a small technical problem. Hmm… not a good night for “chatting”

  385. Anzia said

    night Dr. Duchat…

    chat’s back!

  386. Madonna said

    I’m out too guys. Gonna go work on the card a bit more before bed.


  387. Oh Hell I missed all of the fun. I ended up being dragged to the grocery store and of course it took for fricken ever to get out of there.

    One of these days I’ll make it in the chat on time. *sigh*

    Anyone lurking around? Or are all of you preparing for the work week?

  388. ok, well I guess that means it’s time for me to drift off.

    Goodnight all!

  390. msgypsy said

    I didn’t get any notification of any technical difficulty but I’ve been so damn busy this weekend I haven’t gotten to the computer again until now. And now it’s bedtime. I’ll have to TRY to catch up tomorrow. LOL!

  391. Margaret said

    Who was asking about the Silver Dollar thing last night. Email me:

  392. lwildstar said

    sorry didn’t even try to join you at the Hen House last night – my computer at home doesn’t like the HenrysHens site – I can’t gt any of the pictures and it wont let me in the chat room – but I see there were problems last night so just as well i didn’t try.

    I’ll try the LT site at lunch and see if its doing any better.

    I did a little tweeking to Part One – link below – if you want to see the changes.

    Tango – here you go again
    Thanks for the interest. Still havent decided if I’m going to make the cell phone charms or key rings yet – been busy with the writing!

    back to work now!

  393. Madonna said

    Good morning y’all,

    I still haven’t had a chance to read your story yet. I’ll try to do it this evening.

    There is still time to get me the second greeting if you want to.

    Update on the progress of the card…
    It started a little slower than I thought it would, but I’m rockin’ and rollin’ now. I estimate maybe Wednesday.

    If you’ve sent me an email, I’m not ignoring you, I just haven’t read any of my email from yesterday at all.

    Have a good morning everyone

  394. Margaret said

    Ladies: I had a lot of fun last night and I’m so glad all of you are in my life. Sorry for being sappy but I really enjoyed myself last night with all of you.

  395. prtfvr said

    Margaret: I had a great time too. I guess that makes us both saps!

  396. prtfvr said

    On the OMG front:

    This week’s IMDB stats are in. Ladies, you are really busting your fingers out there! Here’s this week as compared to last week:

    Blood Ties—–3,024———3,846———(+822)****

    First of all let me say, WOW!! You guys really moved Blood Ties and Kyle! That’s a HUGE jump! Such a dramatic change in one week is definitely the way to get noticed. Keep up the good work!

    Where’d all the minxes go? Dylan just about plummeted! Christina dropped but not as bad. If you search on Blood Ties and just click on everyone’s name that counts as a search.

    Kyle and Blood Ties numbers are amazing though. If we double our efforts we should get Kyle under 1,000 next Monday!! Commence clicking! When the show premieres in Canada next month, we’ll have a boost from their searches as well.

    Good job! I love almost instant gratification. You can see the difference we’re making.

  397. Annalaise duChat said

    Morning all.
    Late night last night.I can’t seem to get going today.I wrote for a couple hours after I said goodnight to you all. Geez, I been hanging around you guys to much. I’m starting to sound like I’m from the South too, I’m tthoughs strictly a Northern girl. Only been to the south once,nice place to visit but I couldn’t take the heat.

    Is any body else having problem typing comments? my cursor is always about three letterspaces away from where I’m actually typing. Makes it hard to go back and correct typos.

  398. prtfvr said

    Must be the server then. I just thought the net was slow today.

  399. Dani said

    Morning guys. I totally had a bad weekend. I never even had a chance to get to Kelly’s. Madonna I emailed you my greeting for Kyle a few minutes ago.

    So I never got to see Hairspray on Friday. I was so totally pissed. My ankle was seriously bothering me and I took some of my mother’s Percocet for it and I was in no shape to drive. Saturday I had go to Gram’s and put together a new little side table for her that she got at Christmas Tree Shops. The damn holes in the legs didn’t line up with the holes in the tables. Later that day I went to Blockbuster to rent High School Musical, brought it home and that DVD was SO scratched the DVD player rejected it. DAMN IT. I went back to Blockbuster and gave them hell about it, i.e. Don’t you idiots check these things when they come back and they came back with just plain bullshit excuses. Plus I am out of my Lexapro so my moodiness and anxiety is rearing it’s ugly head. I won’t have the money to get it until next week. I can be such a bitch when I am not on it also.

    Lady A-Can you send your snail mail address to me at I want to send you the two recipe cards I made up for Cali.

  400. Dani said

    Oh wildstar I told you everybody would like your story. It really was great.

  401. Dani said

    And prayers to everybody needing them. I think we need to pray for these people also The little girls was kidnapped almost 100 days ago in Portugal.

  402. Himmiefan said

    Hey Dani – so sorry about your weekend. This week can only be an improvement! Hope your ankle is feeling better.

    Annalaise – Yep, we’ve got heat (sigh…). 101 schedule on Thurs. Double sigh.

    I’m so sorry I missed the chat last night. I totally forgot!! Sounds like you guys had fun. I missed it. Bummer!

    Prtfvr – thanks for sharing the stats! Another idea is in addition to postcards and IMDBing is to go every now and then, not all at once or it will look too coordinated, to the Lifetime BT board and simply ask if it’s October yet. That’s what I’m going to do.

  403. Annalaise duChat said

    Hey Guys this is amusing! Maybe these guys would rather have Vicki’s Demon tats!

  404. Margaret said

    That is so funny.

  405. Annalaise duChat said

    Talk about a good way to get them to toe the line!Humiliation But the Japanese are good at that. Look at some of their game shows!

  406. Dani said

    That is too funny. Amber is just getting into Hello Kitty merch.

  407. DIZEY1 said

    Hi my blog Sista’s good morning !! 🙂

    Prtfvr great party last night oh and the Henry Hors d’oeuvre’s were YUMMY as usual, almost as good as seeing him on TV 😉 The visuals from ya’ll ahhh left me with SWEET Henry dreams. 😉

    Dani sorry your weekend sucked so badly, it’ll get better be cool 😎

  408. Annalaise duChat said

    My daughter is 15 and she’s still got Hello Kitty all over the walls in her room. Right next to all the punk rockers. Go figure?

  409. DIZEY1 said

    Hey Prtfvr we are Totally Kicking ass on IMDB, YEAHHHHHH 🙂 😛

  410. DIZEY1 said

    Ok Margaret I put my last **18** postcards in the mail and will go and get another **100** today . My hand ‘s killing me I need to find a printer to help me get through these a little easier. It’s becasue I love you so Henry 😉

    Hey anybody hear from the Claire contingency?? I assume all is well.

  411. Himmiefan said

    Fill me in! What did you guys talk about?

  412. msgypsy said

    Drive-by again.

    Any opinion on at what point Lifetime is going to look at the cards and think that they’re all coming from a very small group of people and deciding to dismiss all of them? It occurred to me a while ago but didn’t seem to be relevant until just now, when I realized how many are being sent by a small group of people. I worry that Lifetime will interpret that the wrong way after a while.

    I’m not saying not to do this. Just asking if anyone else has thought of this and maybe has a reassurance for me.

    BACK to work now. Sigh!

  413. DIZEY1 said

    Hey Gypsy we only know about the ones here We have no clue how many are coming from the LT and Bloodlines people , It may not be such a small amount as we might think, and Tanya said something so I think it may be some impressive numbers ya’ know?

    I think we kick ass chix 🙂 so does our favorite author 🙂

  414. Himmiefan said

    Ms Gypsy – I have thought about that. At some point, a few of us talked about making the cards look like they’re from different people. I don’t think any of us want 400 cards to translate as just one person sending many cards.

  415. DIZEY1 said

    Himmie sorry didn’t mean to ignore you. We talked about ……Henry and……….Henry, his fine hot body, back etc. Something about OMG I think bathing him 😉 I’d spent the day in the pool consuming a few brews and am a little fuzzy on some of the conversation. But they did come down to my GUTTER at some point in there. 😉

  416. Himmiefan said

    Dizey – thanks. I missed it!!! I think I was watching Special Victims Unit or something like that. Definitely not as good as bathing Henry. 🙂 Okay, I’ll sit here at my desk and visualize.

    So much better than work.

    Thanks Dizey girl! 🙂

  417. Anzia said

    Himmie- we also made a list of hot guys and all chimmed in as to if we agreed or not. There was an almost fight for Henry & Mulder (not at the same time) We discussed Vampire Mythos. Talked about what we would and wouldn’t let Henry do to us. Talked about Food & Sex. The last two combined created Henry and bathing/showering- HOT topic! We tossed around a few authors & series names. There was talk about a safety word *giggles*… we covered a lot of ground… ^_^ I’m not sure “joinging” Diz in the gutter would be appropriate. I’m certain we carved out another level, or at least started to, last night!

    Gypsy- I had thought of that before too. There’s just no way to know if we’re it or if we’re just a small pocket in a LARGE group of pocket BT fans. This is especially true since we can’t get any sort of response from LT but the standard automatic reply (which is highly annoying!).

    Dani-I”m so sorry about your weekend dear. As was said earlier, that can only mean your week can get better. We’ll definitely help with that ^_^

    Okay, the Hello Kitty thing is great. However, I’d be a bit leary of a police officer wearing such apperal. Punishment or not that REALLY kills the authority figure ideology. ALmost creates a situation that warrents a picture and a letter to The Tonight Show! ^_^

  418. DIZEY1 said

    Your so welcome Himmiefan, how is that himmie cat anyway?? My Monkey (cat) has actually lost a little weight and is now a svelt 13 1/2#, she was groomed and shot updates Friday. She’s my bro’s cat but she’s adopted us and is quite happy. I really want another dog though. I guess he/she will find me when it’s time I guess.

    Picture a large jaccuzi tub Henry and (insert your name here) soaking together, candles all around the tub , mood music playing, dimly lit , bottle of cabernet sauvignon…….. ok the rest is in each of our dirty little minds (hee hee hee ) Did I set up the scence well enough ?? ENJOY LADIES 😛

  419. Dani said

    My day is already getting better ladies. I found a bunch of Hairspray, High School Musical 1 and 2, and Crybaby songs on Limewire. I downloaded them and are listening to them right now mixed in with some Hinder. Talking to you guys always makes me feel better anyway.

    Does anyone know what movie Crybaby is? I can’t find to many people around here that know it. I guess it is a pretty obscure movie.

  420. lwildstar said

    Sorry you had such a crummy weekend Dani – thanks for all the encouragement – have you had a chance to go back and read the re-write?
    I expect I’ll be sending part two to you very soon…..

    Now that I see what you guys talked about last night I am so bummed my computer just doesn’t like HenrysHens! I need an up grade! But then again, being as it was a sunday night – I may not have stayed long.

    Well I am going to make an attempt at the LT site from work and see whats up!

    And yes I agree – Henry/Kyle is the cause of the recent heat wave – duh why didn’t I think of that!

  421. Himmiefan said

    Henry or Mulder. Hmmmm. Interesting. Can’t forget Vincent Perez from Queen of the Damned! What I would want Henry to do to me. Hmmm. More thinking as opposed to working. 🙂

    My himmie cat is having sinus trouble. Have you ever seen a fluff ball with a bit of a runny nose? My poor pokie!

  422. Himmiefan said

    Crybaby – that’s another John Waters films, right? I think Johnny Depp plays Crybaby. Haven’t seen it, but have landed on it while flipping channels.

  423. Dani said

    lwildstar-I haven’t been able to get there yet and check the re”vamped” version. I will soon.

  424. Anzia said

    Dani- I LOVE CRYBABY! OMG. I have to confess though, when I first saw it I was REALLY scared but… I LOVE J.Depp in that movie! *purrs* I love bad boy J.Depp which means all promo photos where they show his tats and attitude… WOW! … Okay, you just made my day… ^_^ just ’cause I thought about my fav pic of him… i’ll see if I can find it so I can share…

  425. Himmiefan said

    Um, that’s supposed to be “pookie” instead of “pokie.”

    Bad spellers of the world, untie!

  426. Dani said

    Yes Himmiefan you are right. It is such a cheesy movie which makes me love it. Johnny Depp looks great as the 50’s crooner/hellcat. If I could I would transport myself back to the 50’s or 60’s.

  427. Dani said

    I so totally agree witj you Z. Johnny Depp is so H-O-T in that movie. *big sigh*

  428. lwildstar said

    Well made it to the LT site and was able to post on the message board – and for once I didn’t get kicked off whoile trying to go to their feed back location – maybe they are working out some of the bugs….

    Anyway – you know I came up with 20 trivia questions last night – and left the list at home. If there are no storms tonight I will post it!

    Going to log off now and go work on part two – I’m anxious to get it ready for you!

  429. Dani said

    For all you Johnny Depp lovers out there this is a clip from Crybaby

  430. Anzia said

    Not the on I was looking for but… it might be a new fav:

    Okay, this is it… my fav johnny depp pic. DO NOT ask me why. I don’t know… it just is ^_^:

  431. DIZEY1 said

    Crybaby not one of my fav’s for the Deppmeister. I love him a sword wielding Pirate though. Ed Woods ,Fear and LoathingI just couldn’t get into those either maybe becasue they’re so dark and off the wall. I have Chocolat’ on my Netflicks que can’t wait to see that one it was supposed to be good.

  432. DIZEY1 said

    🙂 😎 😛

    hey, Laurel – I am sending good thoughts your way; I hope you get to feeling better soon 🙂 If you need anything I am a phone call away!

    lwildstr – sent you an email, coz I love your story. Keep it up, k?

    prtfvr – What can I say that hasn’t already been said! You are awesome! it is wonderful to pop over to your site when works starts to get to me and take a Henry break. Should I be seriously worried that I can pretty much guess what episodes each of the pictures is taken from? 😉 Nah

  434. Anzia said

    YES! That is a GREAT movie and Depp is very very attractive! Oh my… just wait… you’ll LOVE it!

  435. Dani said

    Diz-Chocolat is so absolutely excellent and yes Johnny is so sexy in that movie. The chocolate really does a good job in it also. LOL!

  436. elizabeth said

    I had forgottan about Chocolat! I loved that movie! Next to the Pirate movies that is my favorite Depp flick.

  437. Tango said

    Hello Bloggerati!

    Sorry that I missed out on all the fun last night. Had to get stuff ready for today and it started at 4:30 this morning. Just a quick drive by before I get on the road again, dropping by to wish everyone a FABULOUS MONDAY.
    Especially to Dani after the rough weekend. 🙂

    Diz – Chocolat’ is good. With a name like that it would almost have to be. However, Johnny is not in it near enough, but he is dripping sex appeal. 😎

  438. Himmiefan said

    I never got Johnny Depp’s appeal until I saw Chocolat. Yum, and I’m not talking about the candy!

  439. Dani said

    Tango-True he isn’t in the movie enough for me but the last scene is so perfect.

  440. DIZEY1 said

    I may have to bump it up on my que. Did anyone see him interviewed on Bravo w/James Lipton. He is soooo cool, and humble I think is what comes to mind when I think of him. But that Jack Sparrow just sucks me in 😉

  441. Dani said

    You know they call him a pirate in Chocolat.

  442. DIZEY1 said

    Sorry Hi my Tango girl, where ya’ headed to now?? Out of town again ?

  443. DIZEY1 said

    Dani ,

    A chocolate Pirate , why do they call him that ?? Capt. Jack Godiva 😉

  444. DIZEY1 said

    Still no word from the Claire Patrol, I hope all is well in their little corner of the world.

  445. DIZEY1 said

    Starving kidz heading to lunch and see ya’ll in an hour 🙂

  446. Dani said

    He just likes the chocolate the woman he falls for makes.

  447. Madonna said

    Hi guys,
    Doing one of Ms. Gypsy’s drive bys.

    The first movie I remember seeing Johnny Depp in was Nightmare on Elm Street. Anybody remember that?

  448. Dani said

    I was not into scary movies when that came out and now the Halloween and Nightmare movies don’t appeal to me. I was to scared of scary movies to watch them. Now I can’t get enough of them but I only like the psychological paranormal scary movies not the bloody gory scary movies.

    I am SO with you on that. I used to like the really bloody movies once too. Not so much anymore. I like stuff that can be scary without all the blood. I mean, leave a little bit to the imagination, you know?

    OH! You guys wanna see something really cool? Check this out. Hopefully the link doesn’t up and disappear. *g*

    It’s a 14 inch rubber vampire bat. I bought it from a nifty catalogue I get all the time. It was under the Halloween stuff. It’s currently hanging from my ceiling. My Dad thinks I’ve got issues. Heh. Thinking it was so funny, he hung it right about my bed. Talk about creepy. Wake up in the middle of the night and see that thing above you…hehe

    NO idea what I missed…this was just a flyby posty. 🙂

  450. vampgrl said

    Hmmm..weird…my name went through as VA..sorry about that. *g*
    Here’s a better pic of the bat…hehe

  451. Margaret said

    Madonna: Can’t remember if it was you or someone else who was looking for a picture of Kyle’s dog. has the infamous cast photo with Cali in it but you’d have to do some cropping if you used it.

  452. Dani said

    VA? Are you new?
    Speaking of bats, my batty friend, Calpurnia Headbanger, melted in my car the other day. All the hot glue melted, now I have to glue her back together. I guess she won’t be flying free in my car anymore.

  453. Margaret said

    vampgirl: I wouldn’t mind if Henry were hanging around like that, but in the middle of the night to bump into that thing, I think I’d be diving under the bed. lol

  454. Dani said

    Ahh! Hi vampgrl.

  455. Madonna said

    I think that was AlisaSG looking for that picture.

  456. lwildstar said

    Dani – your bat melted! good grief! well you know what they say about leaving pets in the car on a hot day….shame on you 😉

    Maybe you had better move her inside until the fall…you can set her free again come October! to celebrate…..

  457. Dani said

    Yeah I will after I glue the poor thing back together. It was so funny. I got in the car and found her lying on my seat and I was like “What the *&#@?!”

  458. elizabeth said

    Dani – I had the same problem with Vampiro Lunari! I felt awful and my daughter kept giving me a hard time about my wounded bat 😉 Luckily, I have a hot glue gun at home and fixed him right back up, but he is no longer going to be in my car. I am taking him to my office to sit on my computer from now on 🙂

  459. Dani said

    Yeah I have to find a better place for her. I not so sure about bringing her to work. A lot of the people I work with are kleptos. Who knows what they will decide to take next.

  460. elizabeth said

    Luckily for me that isn’t so much of a problem where I work. I have a shelf full of small bears that people have given me over the years and no one has stolen them. Knock on wood!!!

  461. DIZEY1 said

    Hi ya’ll anybody hear from Laurel, how’s she doing?

  462. Dani said

    Ok WordPress just logged me out and sent me to Gypsy’s main page. That was very weird.

    A few years ago someone took my diet pills out of my desk!

  463. DIZEY1 said

    It’s moving slowly today also, or is that just me ? 😎 too much beer in the sun yesterday 😉

  464. Dani said

    Not slow for me. I leave in about 10 minutes. Of course time will be flying until the 27th. Amber starts school and I don’t like it. She also got invited to her first birthday pool party of one of her dance classmates. She was talking to her on the phone. She was talking to a friend on the phone for the first time. I have such a horrible feeling in my stomach over all this. Is it normal?

  465. elizabeth said

    Dani – you sound like any other Mom whose little one is growing more independent! It almost killed me the first time my oldest went off to school and now my youngest is starting High School in the Fall – and I still hate it! Time flies by far too quickly.

  466. Dani said

    I’m not her mom but I feel like it. She is my sister. My parents adopted her when she was 2 and she has lived with my parents since she was 5 days old. I have had as much of a hand in raising her as my parents, if not more. Amber even slips and calls mommy sometimes and I have even had the nerve to not correct people. My boss better give me her first day of school off. There is no way I could make it through a day of work.

  467. Margaret said

    Thanks Madonna. Alisa go to for a picture of Kyle’s dog.

  468. Dani said

    Ciao! I am leaving later then expected.

  469. elizabeth said

    Dani – It is obvious you love Amber a great deal – your boss definately better give you the day off when she starts school.

  470. DIZEY1 said

    Ciao Dani girl, see ya’ later alligator 🙂

  471. elizabeth said

    lwildstr – I sent you the money today for Krysten’s Vamp.

    Cree – for some reason you have been on my mind lately. If you are out there lurking I just want to say “hi”. Stop in more often; you are missed 🙂

  472. vampgrl said

    August 6, 2007 @ 11:51 am

    vampgirl: I wouldn’t mind if Henry were hanging around like that, but in the middle of the night to bump into that thing, I think I’d be diving under the bed. lol

    Well lucky for me it doesn’t hang low enough for me to bump my head into it. *g*
    🙂 😮

  473. Himmiefan said

    Hey Dani. How many years between you and your sister?

  474. The bat is adorable! I might have to order a few now. 🙂

  475. elizabeth said

    I just went out to run a couple of errands and put in an old Eagles CD. I must have listened to it hundreds of times in the past, but this time I got really caught up in the song One of These Nights. Are you guys familiar with it?

    Anyway, all I could think about was Henry.

    The full moon is rising
    the fever is high
    the wicked wind whispers and moans

    you’ve got your demons
    you’ve got desires
    I’ve got a few of my own

    aahh, the thoughts I was thinking 😉 I won’t post all the lyrics, but I definately played that song several times in a row – hehehe

  476. DIZEY1 said

    Elizabeth I’m a huge Eagles fan Hotel California (actually had the album) played the bejeesus out of it. In my truck now I have Hell freezes over CD, love em’all. Glen Frey, love Don Henley they’re great together and apart.

    “Try to stab it with their steally knives but they just can’t kill the beast. ”

    Ooh mom said the GourmetSleuth cookie cutters came today, now the bowl should get here any day.

  477. Wow those cookie cutter came quickly! I can’t wait to see all of the gifts together.

  478. DIZEY1 said

    I know when my mom called I was like what I think I ordered them on Friday so wow, she said the little tin they came in is cute , the shape of a dog bone. God I love this kind of stuff. 🙂 😉

  479. DIZEY1 said

    Elizabeth I also love Sarah McLachlan’s Building a Mystery “You come out at night that’s when the energy comes, and the dark side’s light and the vampires roam” coinkidinky she’s also Canadian. Maybe the vampires have been there all along. Like Henry said “I’m glad I made an impression” 😉

  480. DIZEY1 said

    Ok ya’ll I’ll check in after I get home. TTFN, au revoir **

  481. Margaret said

    Elizabeth: I’ve listened to that song probably a hundred times and never really paid attention to the lyrics. Guess I should have. Wow.

  482. Margaret said

    Is the lifetime site back down again? I’m having trouble getting in.

  483. lwildstar said

    Well now hat I know the bats melt – I may have to change the care instructions to include – “don’t leave in your car , I may melt!”

    I’m so sorry about that – who would have guessed!

    I have Victoria haning from my shelf at work and HMV Fangs on my computer desk at home – he lost his string ;( so he cant fly right now.

    Plenty of lttle guys left! just let me know if you want one – email me

    I am going to go hop in the showeer and eat then I’ll be back – I was trying to find the trivia questions – and damned if I can find them!

    I’ve lost my mind……

  484. prtfvr said

    hey vampgirl! I now pronounce you VA!! 🙂

    A 14″ rubber bat? Ooh, sign me up! Sounds painful but I’ll bet you could hit a couple of balls out of the park! 😉

  485. Cree said

    Elizabeth: Thanks for thinking of me. I am usually lurking everyday, but this past week my cable modem has been on the fritz and kicks me off of the internet about every 5 minutes or so which makes it extremely hard to catch up on all of the posts, so I haven’t even tried to the past few days since it is so frustrating to keep signing back online. I was able to stay on long enough today to get somewhat caught up, though.

    Looks like I missed alot. Apparently there is a birthday gift for Kyle that I missed out on. Sounds like you guys came up with a lot of great ideas. I am sure Kyle will love it.

    And apparently I missed one naughty chat last night….bathing Henry? Count me in!! And you guys were listing things you WOULDN”T want Henry to do to you??? Hmm….nothing comes to mind in that department. Well, except for him “turning” me, because then we couldn’t be together and that would be no fun.

    Anyway, my modem is still messed up and they can’t get a new one out to me until Friday, so I probably won’t be around much this week. 😦 You all have fun and I’ll check back in when I can.

  486. prtfvr said

    Hotel California is the best album of all time, followed closely by Hell Freezes Over. And Hotel California is the best song of all time! That’s the only song that I played the hell out of but have never thought “I just can’t listen to that one more time!” That’s why it’s my bestest.

    Love Sarah McLaughlin (sp?). I’ve seen her in concert a couple of times. She’s great. My favorite singer is Sting. I see him in concert every time he comes to town. I saw Peter Gabriel in the 90s when he was WAY hot. Love his music too.

    God, I feel like I’m filling out a dating application:

    My favorite color is red.
    I like long walks on the beach.
    Dinner by candle light.
    And hot vampires!

  487. vicki said

    hey girls…

    Johnny Depp at me at 21 Jump Street…(shows my age) But he was just soo good in that show. I know it wasnt supposed to be a quality show, but he made it great.

    the chat last night was GREAT>..yes there was bathing involved and if I remember correctly–the discussion of reading erotic a means to helping us work out. LOL

  488. Tango said

    Dizey – all this talk about Cholat’ I’ve just added it to my Netflix queue too. You know you can preview the movie on Netflix. I am working in a small town not quite 1.5 hours away all this month. I just suck it up and drive back and forth everyday because I like to sleep in my own bed. It’s a great account ,and I love the people in it, so it makes the drive worth while.

  489. prtfvr said

    As I said last night, by the parameters of our chat Henry would be one squeaky clean vampire!

  490. Tango said

    or Chocolat’

  491. Madonna said

    Glad to hear that you are doing alright. I sent you an email about 4 days ago. It isn’t too late to send a greeting to Kyle. The card is taking me a little longer than expected.

    Got your email for Nina’s greeting.

    Well, back to work guys
    Chat at y’all later

  492. elizabeth said

    Cree – glad you checked in 🙂 Sorry you are having trouble with your modem.

    I’ve spent a little time today checking out some fanfic. it can be a bit confusing because there are so many stories, but I have caught a couple I have enjoyed. It is a good thing I read so incredibly fast otherwise I wouldn’t get any work done – hehehe

    I am heading out. My daughter is having a friend stay over tonight . I will try to survive the experience 😉

  493. prtfvr said

    No one’s here! THANK GOD!! Maybe I’ll get some sleep tonight! 😉

  494. lwildstar said

    Just checking in – the LT website seems to have more problems at night. I find that I can get on right around noon, but after that – forget it.

    Dani – just a heads up that I will be emailing you Part two tomorrow night. I need to sleep on it tonight and look it over tomorrow. Thanks for the help!

    Printed 10 postcards for tomorrow. My pack of 100 came in the mail today – so I will be printing until I run out of ink!

    RE: Henrys bath..(so sorry I missed the discussion last nihgt)..have you seen those eternity tubs? you can keep filling them and they don’t over flow….and the delux model “seats” two……hummmmm….interesting possibilities there….
    I would like one in my room at the castle please…..

    ok I’m off for bed now!

  495. Margaret said

    prtfvr: Come back. I stepped away for a minute.

  496. DIZEY1 said

    Hey Doc Cree, missed ya’ how’s work dog-eat-dog huh? 😉 I went to adopt last weekend , not a good experience. I’ll have to find another way to pick a pup, on-line I guess. Hope to hear from you soon, did you email Madonna w/a greeting for Kyle’s card if not you still can. 🙂 COOL ? 😎

    Tango, Johnny Depp et Chocolat ‘dans la même phrase est sinfully délicieux. Le confort de mon propre lit est ma préférence également, particulièrement si Henry attend là. 😉

    Prtfvr, it’s eerie how many things we have in common. Hotel California, never get tired of that album(shows my age/ vinyl ha!) They are the coolest band be apart for like 14 ish years and sound as good if not better than yrs back. I’m a HUGE Chicago fan my aunt’s 7 yrs older than I am so I grew up listening to her music. Chicago, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, oh how about Gary Puckett and the Union Gap love that music. I consider some of these my oldies now, scary. Sorry about the tangent but music’s in my blood, I literally wake in the morning and not realizing it I will have a song just some song in my head when I wake up. I guess it’s better than saying I hear voices huh ?? 😛

  497. Margaret said

    Don’t forget Bread.

  498. DIZEY1 said

    I had The Best of Bread album , IF what a trip I fogot about them. So many good bands and great music. Earth , Wind , and Fire are still one of my fav’s too, love the brass 😉

  499. prtfvr said

    I’m all alone in the chat room. I not nearly as amusing by myself. *sob*

  500. prtfvr said

    DIZ, you’re the sister of my heart woman! I’m older than you, right? Maybe a bunch too! :O

    I’m SO tired. What the heck am I doing sitting here hitting refresh every couple of seconds like I’m desperate and dateless on a Saturday night? 😉

  501. DIZEY1 said

    Prtfvr sorry girlie I went to **CLICK FOR KYLE** you said we were kicking ass so I need to live up to that.

  502. prtfvr said

    Ah, my peeps are in the hen house. Nice!

  503. catcornmom said

    OMG…I leave for the weekend, and a new post-page gets started! That has happened twice this summer!! Bloggerins…we are way out of control!! It’s funny how many topics we go through. I wish I could have been at the server crash party last night. That would have been fun! Sadly, I know how frustrating that can be. It happens in my classroom at times. Not fun with a bunch of bored high schoolers in the room.

    Prtfvr-I LOVE the 18 chapters! You are soooo funny. I also have to admit that I copied about everyone of the Henry pictures!! He is just too adorable.

    That sports car quiz someone posted a while back is crazy. It said I am a Ferrari 360 Modena, which is “Power, passion, precision, and style. You’re sensuous, exotic, and temperamental. Sure, you’re expensive and high-maintenance, but you’re worth it.” I did answer that I was high-maintenance, but that’s because I’m on about 6 meds right now…that doesn’t sound very sensuous or exotic!!! HA!

    The poem for the card sounds really good!! Who is collecting money? Why doesn’t anyone want to collect money?? No one should have to spend money for all of us!!

  504. prtfvr said

    catcornmom!! Long time no read!! We’re in the hen house chatting. come over!

  505. prtfvr said

    Ok. Time for all god’s children to go to bed. Until tomorrow!

  506. Rifkind said

    Hey Cree!
    Is your modem overheating?
    Try unplugging it , and letting it sit… with absolutely NOT electricity, until right before you plan to use it… you MIGHT be able to get it to work for about 20 minutes before it over heats…. maybe

  507. Anzia said

    LOL, looks like i’m the one who missed the chatting tonight. ^_^ Sorry to have done that 😦

    to everyone who is going to watch Chocolat- oh, i love that movie. it’s really good. I have the soundtrack ’cause the music is just that good.

    Nina says hi guys! ^_^ She’s a bit too busy to get over here. But wanted me to tell ya’ll Hi. she hasn’t forgotten us. (as if I’d let her…) 😉

    okay off to bed!

  508. Cree said

    Dizey: Sorry the dog search didn’t go well last weekend. Be careful getting a dog online. Most of the time people do NOT get what they pay for and are very upset about it. Make sure whoever you get it from is a reputable breeder. Do your research on them first. Yes, I got Madonna’s email. I’m glad she posted on here that she emailed me or else I never would have seen it. With my modem problems, I haven’t been able to check my email lately and have over 100 to read! Hers would have been lost in the mess!

    Rifkind: I called the tech support guy and the first thing he had me do was unplug it for a while,but that didn’t work. He said he is not even getting a signal from my box which means it is pretty much dead. I can get a signal every now and then, but I have to really be watching so I can jump on real quick. Usually all I have time to do is try to check the blog! I am so addicted to this place!

  509. Himmiefan said

    “Prtfvr-I LOVE the 18 chapters!”

    What? What? Am I missing something? (note whine of desperation). I was just over at Hens (did some IMDBing) and didn’t see anything new. Did I miss something?

    By the way, I looked at the tongue chapter, and the actress that plays Sinead is using just a little too much tongue on my may-an. Note the “my” part.

    Don’t like her, don’t like her at all. Getting just a little too much in character.

  510. Himmiefan said

    Never mind!!! Found the other chapters!

  511. Himmiefan said

    Okay, I realize I’m just talking to myself here (everybody must be in bed), but anyway, Prtfvr, I read the other chapters, and they’re cute!! Good job!

  512. Wow BT family~

    I had a fine vacation and now I’m back home ready to visit my very busy bloggn’ family!

    Iwildstar~ I loved your story! I only saw the rewrite, but sure enjoyed it! The scene of Henry behind Vicki nuzzling her neck and holding her waist ummm. .

    I was at Laurel’s the AM and walked down the stairs & found her watching the first episode of BT. Naturally, we had to follow it with the next two! I have to confess to drooling over Mike a wee bit. (Henry still holds top spot)

    my car: Mazda MX 811 You’re sporty, yet practical, and you have a style of your own. You like to have fun, and you like to bring friends along for the ride, but when it comes time for everyday chores, you’re willing to do your part. (I’m not too sure about the chores part~ I’d just as soon skip them as do them)

  513. Himmiefan said

    Hey Lwildstar – I just read the first part of Darkness Falls. Nice! Can’t wait to read part two.

  514. msgypsy said

    I’m looking longingly at my bed even as I type. But I had to come by and at least wish you all pleasant dreams. Henry, Mike, Vicki, whoever…just dream!

    Moonbeam, you ought to come around someday while I’m at my desk for lunch. Holding the ol’ Zen up to my face and silently grinning like a madwoman. No one at work questions me anymore. They know better.

    Laurel, lunch this week at some point?

    Good night, my bloggren. Sweet dreams until morning.

  515. Laurel said

    I am finally feeling a bit better tonight, now I just need to wait for my computer to finish the download from i-tunes I started an hour ago. Sheesh. I need a newer computer, this one is at least 6-7 years old. 😦 I have slept so much with my meds that now, of course, I am wide awake, so what the heck.

    Gypsy – I’d love to meet you for lunch. How about Wed. or Fri.? I need to go to the Doctor again sometime this week so I will try to get that sorted out first thing, later this morning.

    Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. Still no good explanation for the pain, but I am surely tired of feeling this bad so I guess I’m in for more tests. Yuk.

    hey vampgirl! I now pronounce you VA!!

    Yeah yeah. Make fun of my really weird typo. I’m not even too sure how that went through in the first place. *g*

    A 14″ rubber bat? Ooh, sign me up! Sounds painful but I’ll bet you could hit a couple of balls out of the park!

    LOLOLOL!!!! Not really the kind of ‘bat’ I was talking about. Heh. 🙂 Shame I missed that chat you guys were talking about too. Bathing Henry? Count me in! WOOHOO!!!! And who says getting turned by Henry would be a bad thing? I say fight the territorial instinct dammit! 😛

    Oh! Read the rest of the chapters of ‘Not Gay’ Too funny! I totally LOLed!!! Or…since I looked at those when I was at work, it was more like LQTM. 🙂
    And this is to Annalaise…I’m still keeping up with your novel. I have all your chapters saved as a Work file. Kinda cool that when you update a chapter or add a new one, I keep updating the file. By the time you finish your novel, I’ll probably have the whole thing saved. *g* Ummm…your latest chapter was listed as Chapters 11&12 but you listed both parts as 11. ???? Oh and I would’ve liked more detail on the whole Kieron feeding from Monica part, but I guess that’s just me. I have to admit, some small part of me…okay a really really small part…always kinda wondered what it would feel like to have a vampire feed off of me. I’ve had several dreams in that department…involving different vamps….Nick from FK, Angelus, Spike, Marcus, Henry…take your pick…hehe 🙂 🙂 😉 😎 😎 🙂 😮 😮 😛

  517. prtfvr said

    Vampgirl, I like VA. Gives you sort of an air of mystery. “What could that mean? Who is this exotic woman who won’t give her name?” I know, I know. I should get out more! 😉

    I couldn’t pass up the 14″ comment. It’d go against my nature. 🙂

    Thanks to everyone who came by to chat last night. I was just sitting around humming to myself telling my kids to leave me alone and then you were all there!

    We must schedule something. Problem is, by the time all you west coasters get home from work, I need to go to bed. Maybe we can do Friday as an all out chat fest?

  518. Margaret said

    You know on Reba how she tells her kids-Did I ever tell you I liked you best? I love you Dizey….Anybody else around here still writing post cards other Dizey, me and lwildstar, if I missed anyone don’t shoot me. I still believe we need to bury them over there.

  519. lwildstar said

    Can’t stay long – took me a while to catch up on the posts from last night. I was going to post a RANT this morning – but I a have decided not to spoil anyones morning – so instead i have replyed to the numorus emails from last night.

    Have a good day every one – I’ll be back at lunch!

  520. lwildstar said

    oh and thank you for the lovely comments about Darkness Falls – wait till Part two!

  521. prtfvr said

    *****Before I forget. Last night Margaret asked why The IMDB was so important.*****

    Here’s why:

    The IMDB is one of the major news rags in the entertainment industry. It wasn’t that big when I first joined but they’ve become something of a phenomenon the past couple of years and I’ve heard their site quoted on entertainment stations before which makes them somewhat high profile.

    They take news from across all magazines such as People, Entertainment Weekly, and Premiere and post the highlights on their site for your viewing pleasure. They also write their own original stories. I don’t know where they originate from but I love them!

    The IMDB also lists (for paying members) projects under development, shooting schedules and job opportunities. Also, its become popular with actors and some have even written their own bios. Many post their own pictures as the head shot you see when you search for someone.

    And finally, Kyle’s posted there a couple of times. Not since last year (someone trashed a friend of his) but he was an avid reader until then. BTW, I checked out whether or not it was really Kyle and I have it on good authority that it was.

    This is a case where it doesn’t matter if the same person searches over and over again. It all counts and that’s the key. 🙂

    So keep those searches up, someone will notice and if we’re lucky they’ll post something on The IMDB about our grass roots efforts to save the show. Then people will be curious and check it out, and so on, and so on, and so on…

    margaret – mailed my ten cards this morning!

  523. Madonna said

    Good morning everyone!

    Margaret, Tango, AlisaSG,
    I sent you all emails this morning.

    I got your 2nd greeting. I hope you’re feeling much better today. We’re all here if you need us.

    Glad you are feeling a little better. Again we’re all here if you need us.

    The card is about to go to press. There is still a little time to be included if you want to be a hen. Just post greetings, descriptions, etc., here or email them to me. Either is fine. I’m just trying to give everyone a chance to be included if they want to be.

    Everyone, sorry this card is taking me so long to complete. I do not want to send him or you girls anything but the best I can do, and if I rush it, that won’t happen. I have a queen size bed and have actually been falling asleep with my art supplies surrounding me. I’m lucky I haven’t rolled over on a pencil and stabbed myself in the lung. Wouldn’t that be great though…. Death by art. LOL!!!

    I’m still squeezing in the postcards too.

    Could someone do an extra IMDB search for me.

    Until my break or lunch girls… Have a great day!

  524. Margaret said

    prtfvr: Can we keep Sunday nights at 10:00 p.m. est set aside since we won’t be watching Blood Ties until October?

  525. DebS said

    Hi everyone,

    I have missed you all so much!!! Feel free to lay on the guilt for disappearing like I did. Sorry I disappeared for a whole month. Totally not my intention. Work got completely crazy. I put on three conferences back to back in thre weeks. And then last week I had my wisdom teeth removed. So, July vanished right underneath my nose.

    Now, I am moving to a different apt on campus this week, and I have to get ready for three student trainings, orienation, and students coming back to school. Where did the summer go???

    I hope that you all are doing fine. I promise to check in more often. Any big news that I have completely missed???

  526. Margaret said

    Anyone hear from Claire yet?

  527. msgypsy said

    I second the Sunday night suggestion. Especially since I have rehearsals every Friday and for the rest of the month will be tied up in either rehearsals or performances most nights. Sunday nights there’s a good chance I’ll be in front of the computer around the same time many of you are. I might look like death warmed over (and not in the good, Henry Fitzroy, kind of way) but I’ll be coherent.

  528. Chery said

    Good morning fellow addicts:

    Barbie over at Blood Lines has started a new petition. Please go over and sign it. Last time she submitted over 2,000 signatures.

  529. Margaret said

    Chery: Where’s the petition located?

  530. Annalaise duChat said

    vampgirl –Thanks!! It’s good to know that someone is reading. I noticed the Chapter typo myself. Thanks for calling it to my attention. I usually write till around midnight and then post it after that so I’m not always too sharp by that time. I’ll take your advice and elaborate on the feeding scene although I really don’t want to get too carried away I’m not writing erotia There’s a fine line that I don’t want to cross What do you think of the flow of the scene when Kieron’s revealing his past? It was hard to write because I had to be historically accurate,but I didn’t want it to sound like a history lesson.Stay tuned the bad guy’s coming…

  531. Annalaise duChat said

    That word was erotica. I am having terrible problems typing posts these days.The cursor is always about 3 or 4 letterspaces away fom where I’m actually typing . I makes it very hard to make any changes so please forgiveall the errors in my posts. It’s a real pain.

  532. DIZEY1 said

    Good morning my Blood Sista’s, and yes Chery we do ROCK 😉 🙂
    Madonna no prob dawlin’ I’ll scoot around IMDB a few times today and throw in a couple of extras for good measure. Death by Art huh? 🙂

  533. prtfvr said

    Barbi just sent me the petitions link and of course I signed it right away!

    Here it is:

  534. DIZEY1 said

    Dr. duChat , no apologies here ma’am nto required. BTW can you post where your story’s at again. It must have passed me by.

    Doc Cree, thanks for the info. the sites I’ll try first are the petfinders ones to adopt locally, it may not be as sad as going and seeing all those animals in person. Boy when my millions/billions get here I’ll go take all those animals find some huge piece of land and let them live out their days free and safe. Doc Cree I’ll hire you as our Vet and you can make your own hours it’ll be your practice. SAVE THE ANIMALS 🙂 😉

  535. Annalaise duChat said

    Hey Dizey – No problem. Password: dreamcatcher

    WordPress posts the oldest posts at the bottom of the page so scroll down to the bottom for the beginning of the book. Thanks for taking an interest.

  536. Dani said

    GOOD MORNING CHICA’S! Today started awful. I guess this isn’t my week. I had questions coming at me left and right. Why isn’t this done? Why aren’t these orders picked up? I was so ready to say “Well, if things had been done correctly when I was on vacation this wouldn’t be happening.” It is all ok now. Hearing everybody talking about The Eagles and Don Henley and Sarah Mc????????? (I forgot how to spell her last name) I have some work to do on Limewire to download some new songs. Woohoo!

  537. Annalaise duChat said

    Dani- Sarah McLachlan’s songs are the greatestSearch her name on You Tube . Somebody posted the original music video for Building a Mystery. It’s great and Fallen is on there too.That’s my favorite.!

  538. prtfvr said

    Annalaise! Ixnay or the assworda. 🙂

  539. prtfvr said

    Ahem. That should have read “assword-pay”.

    LOLOLOL!!! And people talk about my typo-s. *g* And I’m glad she did give us her assword-pay…hehe…or I wouldn’t have been able to read her novel-pay. 🙂

  541. 🙂

  542. Dani said

    Ok so I downloaded Adia, Building a Mystery, In the Arms of the Angel, and I Will Remember You from Sarah McLachlan. How’s that? I also found Dust in the Wind from Kansas and I got some Lynryrd Skynyrd, Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama and Gimme Three Steps. I also downloaded several Eagles and Don Henley.

  543. vampgrl said

    soory…that was just me messing around again. ill stop now…hehe

  544. DIZEY1 said

    Yo VA and Henry’s Girl are you one in the same??

  545. DIZEY1 said

    Ok I wrote 2 posts and they’re not here did I get hijacked??

    Dani you need to download *Better than ice cream”, Full of Grace (one of my fav’s) other Sarah songs she’s got sooo many I love. I like your other additions good music choices.

  546. DIZEY1 said

    Vewy Stwange happenings hmmmmmm 😉

  547. Dani said

    Better Than Ice Cream?

  548. lwildstar said

    well today is just starting out peachy – i wa all set to work on part two – some rewrites – and damned if I didn’t leave the disk at home – at least I hope its at home and didn’t get mixed up with the postcards I mailed this morning! I think I would have noticed.

    Anywho – seems quiet today…i guess its the heat – i know I’m melting…

    Prtfvr – finnaly got a chance to look at the site – wow! I love it!

    Well I am going to go find place cool in the office to eat lunch – talk to you later!

  549. Margaret said

    I still need to know who to send a check to for my portion of the birthday gifts. Someone help me out here. Who and how much?

  550. Anzia said

    hey guys. i’m drive by posting today. I hope everyone’s day either become better or stays good.

    thanks madonna for letting me know you got it.

    I’ve got a sick four year old so i’m on my way to the Dr.s oh the joy

    have fun guys! I love yas!

  551. DIZEY1 said

    Yeah Dani that’s the name of the song. You probably can try it out and listen to it on Limewire? Full of grace is one of my favorites that Sarah does.

    Margaret I was thinking about that and it’s a small amount of money to divide between a bunch of us so my suggestion is that everybody give a couple of dollars which is what it would’ve come to and send or give it to your local ASPCA. I hope that’s cool for ya’ll and Madonna and Lady A let us know how much we owe ya’ll and where to send the dinero 😉

  552. DIZEY1 said

    Aw **Z** I hope the little one is ok, it sucks to be sick in the summertime. Anytime is bad but a summer cold etc. I think is worse. Take care and touch base later.

    Cllllaaaairrrreeeeee, where are you. Please do a drive by and let us know ya’ll are ok. We miss you !! 🙂 😦 😉

  553. prtfvr said

    Man, this group is sic! That’s me getting down wid my bad self as well as getting jiggy wid it. I’m TOTALLY cool, yo. 😉

    Seriously though, does like attract like because we all have problems here. It really IS the Bloody Ford Clinic!

    Get well to everyone illin’ or on any future illnesses. Sometimes I miss what’s going on and don’t know to say anything. This should cover me for a bit.

  554. Annalaise duChat said

    May I recommend downloading Fear, Possession and Do What you Have to Do by Sarah Mac and of course Angel.

    As you can tell I’m a BIG fan.

  555. Dani said

    I am making a list of all the songs suggested on here. I know some of her songs and I had the Mirrorball CD but I don’t know where it disappeared to and I didn’t get to listen to it much before it did disappear. To tell the truth I did bring it here to work and I am thinking one of the kleptos took it.

  556. Himmiefan said

    Morning everybody!! Did you guys chat last night or just Sunday night? I want to chat!! Although, I’ll probably get tongue-tied and just sit there… I’ll try to think up something super-whitty. Is “whitty” spelled right? Oh well…

    Madonna – did you get my description for my hen?

    As for postcards, folks I’ve been sending postcards, but I’ve got to confess, I’m about postcarded out. Any advice, encouragement, threats for me? I’ve also been accessing the video on Lifetime’s board because I think that’s really crucial too.

    Does anyone know how Loves History is doing?

  557. Annalaise duChat said

    I downloaded “39 by Queen this morning from Itunes. That’s a good song. I hadn’t heard if for years and a bunch of Styx songs for my daughter. She started band camp and they’re doing an homage to that band. Imagine Renegade and The Grand Illusion for Marching Band. LOL

  558. Annalaise duChat said

    PS Mirrorball is a great album

  559. prtfvr said

    I’m having my seventies flash back today. When I need some pep, I put on a little KC and the Sunshine Band, Dazz Band (Let It Whip rules!), or some Parliment. Get the funk out, y’all! 🙂

  560. Dani said

    OOOOO Queen I forgot about Queen. I will download more tomorrow. Nobody has himmiefan’s email? She doesn’t know what is going on with you know who?

    Himmiefan-Amber is 4 and I am 29.

  561. DIZEY1 said

    Copy that Dani I’ll forward to her now. Thanks another that slipped by me

  562. Annalaise duChat said

    I’m feeling a little mellow. I’m listen to CSN&Y & Jackson

  563. Dani said

    I don’t have otherwise I would have sent my email from this morning. I already got rid of the ones you guys sent me. I am sorry but the whole situation leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Hey Diz do you get any of the email I send to is it .com or .net?

  564. Dani said

    Did anybody get Lady A on those emails?

  565. DIZEY1 said

    Yes Dani it’s .com and I’ll try and pull up from work I didn’t send to her but will do that now also.

  566. DIZEY1 said

    Ya know that’s crazy I ‘m an nincompoop somedays Dani it’s

  567. Himmiefan said

    What? What? Something else I’m clueless about? Sorry guys, it’s the story of my life.

    My e-mail is Well shoot, my “real” e-mail is I’ll check them both when I get home.

    Dani- I can see how you’d look on your sister as your daughter. That’s to your credit. 🙂

  568. Dani said

    I was only asking because I sent you an email asking if you still had the list you created of everyone’s email and locations etc. I think I accidentally deleted mine. I sent it to you a few times. Once a couple weeks ago and again a few days ago. I changed to your mckitchens one. I hope that is ok and that you got the one I sent there this morning.

  569. DIZEY1 said

    Dani give me Lady A’s email I can’t find it and I’m having trouble retrieving my home emails . Thanks 🙂

  570. DIZEY1 said

    We talked about that Sunday I do need to update it and I’m gonna add the B’days to it also.

  571. Madonna said

    Hi y’all,

    I’m not much on today’s music scene so for the card… someone give me two current bands that you like. I’ll use 1 each from the 1st two posters.

    I can’t check my email from work so correct me if I’m wrong. (I’m doing this from memory.) Are you the one who said like Anzia, big blue eyes, blonde hair, only shoulder length with a flip at the end. If you are we have the same hair style only different colors.

    Oh and for encouragement on the postcard front: This is taken from one of Kyle’s interviews.

    Q) What would you like to say to your fans and supporters?

    A) Thank you! Hopefully, this will be a long and winding road and I’ll be there for you as you are for me.

    Kyle needs us guys. Don’t give up!


    For the chat room….. Tuesdays are iffy for me, Wednesdays and Thursdays are out (lucky to have a chance to breathe those days), any other day there’s a good chance I’ll have at least a few minutes to stop by.

  572. Dani said

  573. Himmiefan said

    Hey Madonna. That’s it! Thanks so much for doing this. I know it will look great. 🙂

  574. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna–John Mayer! & Corrine Bailey Ray

  575. Madonna said

    John Mayer, it’ll fit better

    1 MORE!

  576. Annalaise duChat said

    Also: Panic at the Disco, Fallout Boys, Hinder, Greenday, Deathcab for CutieMight be some Kyle’s more familiar with depends an his taste.

  577. Annalaise duChat said

    What cha doing?

  578. Dani said

    Madonna-Hinder and Josh Groban

  579. DIZEY1 said

    Nickleback, Evanescence, Foo Fighters (love em’)

  580. Dani said

    Darn I wasn’t first. Oh well

  581. Madonna said

    Which one of those do you want me to use?
    You’ll see. It’s a party. There’s gotta be music.

  582. Madonna said

    Which one of yours do you want me to use?

  583. Dani said

    Nickelback and Evanescence and Bon Jovi Man I could go on and on.

  584. elizabeth said

    What about Nora Jones? I love her music. Seems like a lot of us have the same taste 🙂 Dust in the Wind – one of my absolute Favorites! Stairway to Heaven – another one. I always grin when I hear that song because of my Son. He had a dental appointment and they gave him a little happy gas and put a headset on for him to listen to music. That was the song that came on and he was totally floating with it. It was just too funny.

  585. DIZEY1 said

    Five For Fighting, “WORLD” oooohhh “SUPERMAN”

  586. Dani said

    Kyle might recognize Hinder over Josh Groban and I can picture partying to Hinder and not Josh Groban.

  587. Annalaise duChat said

    Greenday I’m sure he’ll be familiar with their work.

  588. rifkind said

    Did you get my Kyle greetings for the card.. RIfkind

  589. Dani said

    Pick what you want. You don’t have to use mine. You are already using my poem. Give someone else some glory.

  590. Dani said

    Well I party to Josh Groban but I can’t see us partying to him.

  591. rifkind said

    I keep hearing “WE are Family” by Sister Sledge, when I think about you’all here at Gypsy’s

  592. Madonna said

    I’ll use as many of your suggestions as I can guys.

    Oh well, back to work I’m afraid.

  593. Dani said

    We Are Family! YES! I love that idea. It just fits.

  594. Madonna said

    I think I got your greeting, but I’ll have to let you know for sure later tonight when I can get home and check my email.

  595. DIZEY1 said

    Cool Beans ya’ll going to munch some lunch and I’ll see ya’ when I get back.

  596. Margaret said

    Way back when they did an interview with Kyle:

    5) What’s the current CD in your CD player, the movie in your DVD player and your most recent ticket stub in your wallet?

    G Love and Special Sauce – CD
    Living in Oblivion – DVD
    Grindhouse – Ticket Stub

  597. Dani said

    G Love and Special Sauce? What the H is that?

  598. Dani said

    Hmmm? G Love? What can you come up with that includes a G? I have officially hit the gutter.

  599. Margaret said

    G.Love & Special Sauce

    When the three-piece of guitarist Garrett “G. Love” Dutton, drummer Jeff Clemens, and upright bassist Jim Prescott first came onto the Philadelphia scene in 1994, no one knew quite what to make of them. Here was this band, fronted by a guy who calls himself G. Love, trying to fuse together the complicated musical craftsmanship of blues with the lyrically driven style of hip-hop. But oddly enough, the experiment worked. After being dropped from Sony following their 2001 release, Electric Mile, the band has kept a low profile, playing a few shows here and there. Now with a home on Jack Johnson’s new label, Brushfire Records, G. Love and Special Sauce are set to release their sixth album, The Hustle, sometime in September. G. Love describes the album as having a “garage funk sound,” a kind of raw and live blend of hip-hop, blues, and as G. says, “funk spelled with a ‘ph.'” Recoil talked with G.Love over the phone just as the band was arriving for a gig in Philadelphia. I was originally going to oblige the request G. made that I replace every word starting with a ‘f’ in this article with a “ph,” but then I thought there would be too many people out there who just wouldn’t get it.

  600. Margaret said

    As Mike would say: “I googled it”.

  601. Dani said


  602. Madonna said

    It didn’t take much to send you there did it Dani?

  603. Dani said

    Nope! I love it! Hahaha!

  604. Dani said

    At least I did not actually spell it out like out arch nemesis would and get all raunchy about it. I think that is just so tacky.

  605. Dani said

    I am listening to Hairspray music right now. Lyrics sung by Zac Efron in the sone Ladies Choice. Hey little girl take me off the shelf Cause it’s hard having fun playing with yourself When your through browsing through the whole selection Shake those hips in my direction.

  606. Dani said

    I want to shake my hips in his direction and lick him up and down but that will be cheating on Henry. Maybe I can get both of them at the same time. You think?

  607. DebS said

    Hey Dizey,

    Life does get in the way. But I still watched quite a few episodes of BT during my time away…and I read another blood book. I just couldn’t go without Henry for that long.

    How is New Orleans?

    Dani (are you Danielle?) I assume it is you, and you have just shortened your name. How goes Are you still doing that?

    August 7, 2007 @ 9:25 am

    Yo VA and Henry’s Girl are you one in the same??

    Yep. That was me. I was just foolin’. *g*
    Sigh….Sarah McLachlan’s music rules! Always did like all of her songs. Back in the day I couldn’t wait until Building a Mystery came on the radio. Also like Full of Grace, Better than Ice Cream…and some more I can’t remember at the mo. Heh. Unfortunatly, I never got around to buying any of her albums…mostly ’cause I wasn’t working for about 2 and a half years and I had no money to speak of. Mirrorball in on my list of the next CD to buy from though. Just have to think of something else to order ’cause I feel stupid ordering just one item. And my absolute fav song is Angel. That’s the only one I have on tape. Taped it off the radio back in ’99. It’s on my Favorite Radio Songs of 1999 tape. Yep, I’m one of those people who used to try to tape songs off of the radio. Talk about friggin’ hard. I swear, people would be totally confused on my collection of CD’s. Nothing meshes. *g* The last CD I bought was The Rolling Stones Hot Rocks album…mostly for my Dad ’cause the record got screwed up once…but come on! Who doesn’t like the stones? 🙂 I also bought the new Beach Boys compilation album Warmth of the Sun. SO have to buy Mirrorball though. You guys are driving me nuts talking about it…hehe
    I don’t buy too many CD’s though. Mostly ’cause I don’t usually have time to listen to them much. It bites.

    Yo Annalaise! I wouldn’t change anything about your novel. The flashback flowed just fine. And the feeding scene could be expanded on without going too far into the erotica zone me thinks. But that’s pretty much it. I just got confused on the whole Chapter 11 and Chapter 11 thing. I was all like…Huh? Chapter 12? Where did you go? *g*

    In other news…I’m making my Dad pick up TMNT The Movie for me today…hehe
    Vampgrl aka Henry’s Girl aka VA aka just V 🙂 😮 😛

  609. Dani said

    Yes Deb it is Danielle. I shortened because everybody started calling me that. I have a date with a guy next weekend that is four years younger then me. I hope it goes good. I am worried because he is younger. How is eHarmony going for you?

  610. Annalaise duChat said

    Vampgirl–Thanks for the feedback I’ll see what I can come up with. Like I said stay tuned. I’m working on Kieron’s first rising as a vamp now. Slightly differant twist to the theme. Hope you like it.

  611. Anzia said

    Hey guys. I wanted to let ya’ll know that Nina knows but didn’t get any of the emails. Her email is If anything changes you should probably email her too. ^_^ Just FYI…

    I’d go for Hinder or Greenday…

  612. Annalaise duChat said

    Type at cha later. Gotta go take mt kid to the orthadontist. Happy Happy joy joy.

  613. Dani said

    I hated going to the orthodontist when I was a kid. I had braces for 4 years. It was only supposed to be 2. Having them adjusted everytime hurt like a bitch.

  614. DIZEY1 said

    Hey ya’ll back from lunch **Z** will do , sorry I missed a few, Gibbs slap 😉

    Dani, **Z** , whats Hinder? God that makes me sound old and out of the loop 😦

  615. DIZEY1 said


    I so understand needing that Henry fix, whether it be book or tube, I’ll take him any way I can get him 😉 Oh and New Orleans how can I say…….it’s freakin’ hot man averaging 95 ish and heat index what maybe like 105 ish. It’s been a really hot week or so, but it seems that alot of the country is feeling the same thing. How about you??

  616. Dani said

    Diz-Hinder videos

  618. Madonna ~ Thanks for thinking of me! I thought that I missed the window of time, boat or basket of hens, hee, hee!
    Anyhow, I’ve got brown hair that is curly and I wear it swept up in a pony; kind of like a bun (I pay big bucks for my curls) blue eyes usually with my funky-colorful readers sitting down on my nose (school marmish)

    I’m happy to contribute $$$ to the cause! I’ve got paypal or can send it snail mail! I didn’t have your email so sure hope your still checkn’ here!

  619. Madonna said

  620. Madonna said

    Sorry that should have read Moonbeam. I’ve got Henry playing in the background. I was a bit distracted.

  621. DIZEY1 said

    Moonbeam if you’d like also email me w/your email of course your local and b’day and I’ll add you to the email list I need to update.

    Madonna after all this dies down send me your b’day info etc to add to the email list also.

  622. DIZEY1 said

  623. Dani said

    Diz-I can send you the list I have compiled on the birthdays if you want. I want to make sure you are getting my emails before I do though.

    I sent you an email a couple of days ago regarding the card. Do you want to include a greeting and be a hen on the card? Greetings you still have a little time for, but I need to know about the hen thing. I’m almost to the point on the card that alterations to it will be really difficult. Try to let me know tonight if possible.

  627. Dani said

    Ok diz it is on it’s way. I am out of here guys. Chat with ya tomorrow. Ciao!

  628. DIZEY1 said

    Cool beans Dani girl, thanx and enjoy the rest of your day 🙂 😉

  629. lwildstar said

    AduChat – I haven’t forgotten you – I just haven’t had time to read – maybe this weekend!

    bugging out of work now – hopefully my missing disk is at home! good grief I’d loose my head if it wasn’t attached!

  630. elizabeth said

    Annalaise – at this rate I am going to get myself fired! Once you posted the address to your story I had to investigate (yes, I confess, I am a compulsive reader 🙂 Anyway, I haven’t been able to quit reading for long – I keep going back to the story. I am on chapter 9 and loving every minute of it! Good job, lady! I can’t wait to get back to it…..

    hey, Moonbeam – my birthday is Feb. 1. I can’t remember where the cut off is – so are you an Aquarian?

  631. Elizabeth – I’m on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces it’s right on the 19th. I favor the fish, usually. My fav. sis Robin’s b-day is Feb.3rd and is Big Fun and is quite the Aquarian! It is quite the hoot when Laurel, Robin and I get together. The menfolk have fun too! Are you a predictor of the spring~being the groundhog baby? I imagine you were a lovely welcome to Feb., regardless of the weather.

    I’m on my way to Annalaise’s work

  632. Madonna said

    I figure you all probably won’t mind but I’ll ask anyway.

    My mother would like to “sign” the card as well. Even though she has never posted here. Will anyone mind if she does so?

  633. You go mom

  634. Himmiefan said

    Madonna – no sweat. The more the merrier!

  635. elizabeth said

    Madonna – I don’t have a problem with your Mom signing the card. The more the merrier 🙂

    Annalaise – OK, get busy…what happens next????!!!!!

    Moonbeam – I thought you might be on the cusp. I was married to a Pisces once upon a time :). I hadn’t really looked at my sign for a long time so I googled it. good grief, I had forgotten much of it and was surprised how accurate it is to my personality!

  636. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna not at all. I say the more Henry’s Hens the merrier.

    Oh BTW CLaire finally got internet and thay are sleeping on matresses still but are all ok and she sends her love. I was so relieved to get a message back just to know all is well. Anyway just passing on some more good news.

  637. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna when the card is complete how do we get to see it , Claire was asking also. Is it a PDF file that we can open? Girl I am so stoked to see this I cain’t even tell ya’. 😉 🙂

  638. elizabeth said

    Dizey1 – It is good to know Claire is okay 🙂 Give her our love.

  639. Madonna said

    Something funny just happened. I just got a wrong number call to my cell phone. The guy was asking for Kyle.

    I’m sad to say I don’t think I’ll have it finished until this weekend. You know the work where I make my money is getting in the way of our Kyle. Damn bills, damn money. When it is finished I’ll send it out as a pdf just like the postcards. Send Claire my love.

  640. May I say that a certain email this morning got me a bit miffed.
    People always find a way to make me not like them.

    Moving on!!

    It’s hotter than Hades here! I want to know who ordered the mid-week heat wave. Send rain, asap!

  641. lwildstar said

    Dani – just emailed you Part Two!

    I found my disk when I gort home – right where I left it – on top of the laptop!

    I got home early because one of the supervisors offered to drive me home because of the heat – I told him that they finally made my position offical and he was very happy for me and very sad for himself, because now I won’t be working with his department and he relys on me for alot of the “fancy” powerpoint projects and quick spread sheets – oh well…..

    Well I am going to go print some postcards and see what I can scroung up for dinner!

    I’ll be back!

  642. Himmiefan said

    “The guy was asking for Kyle.”

    Okay Madonna, what are you not telling us??? (hands on hips, foot tapping)


  643. Madonna said

    Lips are zipped. He says Hi by the way.

  644. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna that damned life again. I too have grown acustomed to eating, I do love the AC, so I understand that reality BITES !! Not trying to rush you or anything I’m just a kid at heart and the delayed gratification thingy ya’ know. I love it that your mom wants to sign my mom probably would too besides she has helped put out 2-300 postcards, all for our Henry 🙂 We do rock !!

    Lady A how about hotter than the hinges of hell , it feels like that here too, man a big heat wave. Last night my AC was just getting down to about 76ish and that was at 8:30 or so. Oh yeah very hot, but the Carribbean seems quiet and don’t want to jinx myself by saying that.

    Ladies I’ll pass along to Claire all your love and well wishes hopefully they can un box and get settled soon.

  645. DIZEY1 said

    Getting ready to head home and will check ya’ll out when I get there,

    Hello is Kyle there ????? If so send him over red rover 😉

    XOXOXOXO later alligator 😎

  646. Anzia said

    Madonna- Share-zees! You must share… and how did he get your phone number! What aren’t you telling us girl? 😉

    Diz- you asked about hinder? Is a group. Here are a few songs from that lovely website we all love so much:
    Lips of an Angel-
    Better than Me-

  647. Anzia said

    And for general Henry enjoyment: That one I like just ’cause of the combo of the song & henry. It brings warm fuzzies when the ideas are combined in my head. ^_ ^ I love this song. All you country fans… you should know this one!

  648. Margaret said

    Ok ladies: Blood Ties has sprawned yet another disease in addition to Kyleitus, Mikeitus, Vickitus, etc. The new one is postcarditus. Its the feeling that you know you have better things to spend your money on such as bills but you believe if you don’t write that one last post card that could have been the card to have sent everything over the edge, the card that helped make up their mind. You want to quit, you know you should, but you can’t help thinking if you stopped that you didn’t do everything in the world possible to keep the show on and you wouldn’t be able to sleep at night.

    You’re sick of looking at the stupid things, you’ve run out of creative ways to beg, etc.


    And where are those cute guys in the white coats. I really need a rest. lol

  649. Unfortunately my money situation won’t allow for me to purchase postcards anymore. I’ve been doing a lot of online stuff to show my support.

    I will be buying some when I get my big paycheck this week. *crosses fingers*

  650. Annalaise duChat said

    Elizabeth–Thank you! I’m so glad you like it.

    Writing this has been my obsession since early June when I started it. I’m getting a lot of positive feed back from family and friends. I’m trying to find a local or online writers group to give me a hard critique though. I know it’s still kind of rough in spots and it needs a good proof reading, but I’m following ms. gypsies advice to get it down on paper while the inspiration is flowing and I’ll “fix it in the rewrite” (Thanks gypsy, excellent advice)

    If things go well I should be posting again late tonight.
    Thanks again for your support.

  651. elizabeth said

    I just changed my picture by my name and want to see if it worked.

  652. elizabeth said

    woo hoo! I did it *happy dance*

  653. *drool*

    He is just too hot for words.

  654. elizabeth said

    Darn it – I need chocolate! I have spent the past few minutes looking at pictures of our favorite Vamp and now I NEED CHOCOLATE!!!

  655. Oh no, please don’t mention chocolate. We are all out and I haven’t had a chance to run to the store. 😦

  656. elizabeth said

    Okay, then just send Henry over 😉 I think he can help me….

  657. I don’t even know where he is now! I lost him after my birthday. I think Dizey might have him, or was she sending him to Madonna? Heck I can’t keep up with his tour schedule!


  658. elizabeth said

    Well, I think it is time he visited the Pacific Northwest for awhile 🙂 Whoever has Henry, please send him my way before I wear a hole in the carpet from pacing!! I promise to take really, really good care of him 😉

  659. DIZEY1 said

    OOhh I may still have him , I keep him in a beautiful but manly room where he wants for nothing 😉 I keep him very well fed and we always go to sleep with a smile on our faces. However Elizabeth I will send him right to ya’ in a jiffy 🙂

    Oh btw I do love the pic and that one looks like when Mike showed him the pic of Delphine (dead/ pre-turned) ???

  660. ok, ladies. I am off for a while. Got tons of house work thats snuck up on me.

    Take care, have fun!

  661. elizabeth said

    Dizey- Thank you *takes deep calming breath* I will look for him. I do love the pictures of our Henry when he looks intense. I love the way the shadows play across his face….Drat, is he here yet?

  662. elizabeth said

    That was weird. I posted a comment and got kicked to wordpress saying it was a duplicate comment. huh? I won’t repost in the hopes my comments turns up

  663. elizabeth said

    which it did.

    I think it is time for me to shut down the computer and head home. Everyone have a wonderful evening and I will check in tomorrow.

  664. DIZEY1 said

    Bye Elizabeth and be safe going home 😉 🙂

  665. Cree said

    Dizey: Once you get your billions, give me a call. I’ll totally move up there and be your own personal vet for your hundreds of pets! We’d have a blast! Good luck with the dog search.

  666. Madonna said

    Hi ladies,
    I’m home and working.

    I’m going to send you an email right now. Look for it OK.

  667. DIZEY1 said

    Cree I know I’m just waiting for that Secret money to show up and we’re good to go. I think my dog will find me somehow.

    Hey Madonna 🙂

  668. Chery said

    Hey everyone, do not forget to send you postcard numbers today to Stacey!
    We are going for that magic 1000 postcards this weeek. I know we can do it!

  669. Tango said

    Dizey, je ne pouvais pas être d’accord plus avec Johnny et le chocolat. Qu’est-ce qui est cela avec nous, nos hommes et chocolat ? Je ne peux pas vous attendre pour le voir – l’enfer, je ne peux pas attendre pour le voir de nouveau aussi! J’ai dû mettre “l’enfer” parce qu’il n’y a aucune traduction pour “heck” – comment bizarre! Nous les américains venons vraiment de tourner et transformer la langue anglaise dans quelque chose – bien l’américain.

    Thanks for speaking to me in French. I’ve really missed Claire, but you are taking up the slack for her. I appreciate it! 🙂 😎 :-p

  670. Cree said

    Madonna: Got your email. I am still dumbfounded about it. Sent you one back.

  671. Tango said

    Somebody tell me how to do the smiley with the tongue stuck out. I thought I knew how. 😦

  672. Cree said

    Dizey: The pets that find you are the best ones. I hated cats until mine found me, then we totally fell in love with each other and now he is the most important thing in my life to me! I can’t imagine what I will do if something ever happens to him. I’ll be a complete basket case!

  673. DIZEY1 said

    Cree I know when I put my old girl down yrs ago she was 23 yrs old and was 3 yrs younger than my youngest brother. She was our first cat and now Monkey is my bro’s cat and we love her too. Sucker for all kinds of animals, over the yrs we had hamsters, fish of course, snakes (boas, pythons, king snakes etc.) birds , dogs , rabbits I never realized how many kinds of pets we’d had when we were growing up. Love em’ all. They just wrap you around their little paws 🙂

  674. Madonna said

    Hey Dizey!

    Just checked again and I did receive your greeting.

    I just sent you a pair of emails to the address you sent them from. It’s different than the one you posted earlier?

  675. Madonna said

    Tag Cree!
    Sent you one back!

  676. DIZEY1 said

    Tango, Claire est considérablement manqué par sa famille de sang. Pensez-vous Henry, Kyle, ou Johnny nous laisserait-il lécher le chocolat outre de leurs corps virils glorieux ? Ma devise est service avec un sourire 🙂 😛

    Bon apetit’ Appréciez

  677. lwildstar said

    the smile with the tongue is colon : and a P 😛

    I understand the postcard vrs $ struggle – you get to the end of the week and ask yourself – what can I do without so I can buy postcards? I did a little mental calculating and I think with this last batch of 100 cards I just got, that puts me at just under 400 – possibly more since I was buying them 10 or 12 or 20 at a time when ever I could run to the post office…I finally just said hell I’ll order them!
    So I’ve started budgeting just for cards – I can do without take out – ramin noodles are just fine!….a half gallon of ice cream , don’t need it, that equals 20 postcards – see where this is going? and well since the jewelry business has slowed and I have put a self imposed ban on beads until things pick up – that leaves a little more extra $…..And what do I do I go buy a new dinning room table!

    oh well….it could have been clothes! (I have a passion for fashion!)

    I’ll see you guys tomorrow evening – I took the day off work so I could take my neice to a real English afternoon tea – she is so excited – it was a surprise – mom just told her tonight.

    Well I am off! Everyone have a good night!

  678. msgypsy said

    Just a drive-by again, blog-kin. I was in meetings almost literally ALL effing day. And tonight a bunch of us are going to Ikea for dinner. (I used to live in Sweden so even though I’m not fond of their furniture I do love me some frikadellar … which is a form of hamburger with pork and beef and if I remember right, capers.) (It’s greasy and can’t be beat.)

    I ended up watching a full episode of “Blood Ties” during all the interminable breaks in the meeting when we broke into smaller groups and my group didn’t need the extra time because we’d been smart and met ahead of time to go over our contribution to the subject at hand. I watched my Zen, one other person watched something on his player, one person got to texting her boyfriend, and my boss broke out his laptop to play solitaire.

    On the topic of music people like, I’m more eclectic than most. But two that I’m really into right now are A.I.M. and Blackmore’s Night. Check out for Blackmore’s Night. (Blackmore for Richie Blackmore, formerly of Deep Purpole, and Night for Candace Night, his fiance and singer.)

  679. Annalaise – I just spent the afternoon reading! Wow quite the read! You better get working girl, because I need to read the next installments~like pronto you’ve got me

    Madonna – I guess if I just click to respond to an email that it goes to my computers default email acct. I actually set-up the moonbeam acct. just for here so I wouldn’t muck it up w/ work, school, junk mail etc

  680. msgypsy said

    Okay, I can NOT resist sharing this.

    It’s my favorite Blackmore’s Night song (at the moment) and a Buffy theme. I had to howl when I found it.

  681. himmiefan said

    Hey Ms Gypsy – that is so cool! I’d never heard of Blackmore Night before. I’ve definitely got to check them out.

  682. DIZEY1 said

    Gypsy way cool and until I see him I forget about Spike and I do miss them. That was a really cool show. I like the tune also very old world.

  683. himmiefan said

    Well, I’ve been reading my e-mail. Apparently there’s a traitor within the Order of the Yum. Hmmm. I feel a story coming on.

  684. DIZEY1 said

    Ooohhh himmie I never thought of a story like Benedict Arnold right?? he was a huge traitor ??

  685. DIZEY1 said

    Well my famille’ de Blood got a meeting at the butt crack of dawn so I’m heading to bed , I’ll talk at ya’ after said meeting (blah,blah, blah ) hate these meetings.

    reves doux d’Henri


    Luv ya’

  689. prtfvr said

    Almost forgot my hen’s discription!

    Shoulder length, all one length, brown hair. Always in a pony tail because what’s better than a 46 year old fat chick with a pony tail, I asks ya? Anyhow, blue eyes and I most often have a parrot on my shoulder.

    Good luck with that image!! 😉

  690. Rifkind said

    I’m over at Hens.. come chat

  691. prtfvr said

    Ooh! You devil, you!! Ok. 🙂

  692. Pretty cool site Gypsy One could really get lost over there

  693. Rifkind said

    I got kicked off of Hens 😦

  694. prtfvr said

    It’s telling us to go to bed. Well, it’s telling us on the East Coast to go to bed anyhow. 🙂

  695. prtfvr said

    Dammit! Where’s my icon!

  696. Tango said

    My hen’s descript: Brown eyes, long light-brown hair w/ highlights, long layers. No parot on the shoulder.

    On the topic of music: Billy Ray Cyrus – Achey Breaky Heart

  698. Tango said


  699. prtfvr said

    Well, I have a spare if you’re going for the pirate look, Tango. 🙂

    (Why am I still here?)

  700. Tango said

    Dizey – C’est un de ces cas où il est mieux de demander au pardon que la permission. Bien que je ne croie pas que le pardon soit nécessaire.

  701. Tango said

    prtfvr – is a parot a Depp magnet? Or is it just monkies?

  702. Anzia said

    ~is a parot a Depp magnet? Or is it just monkies?
    Okay, obviously i missed something REALLY important ’cause… wow… parot? Depp? magnet? confusion abounds… not to mention when I couldn’t get J.Depp to make sense in that sentence I turne DEPP into an anagram and… the fun abounds in my head.

    Okay, so Kevin has Gastro Intestionitis (or however it’s spelled). If any of you have had kids with that you understand my and my aunt’s pain. Poor Kev is curled up in a ball on his bed crying ’cause it hurts so bad but he doesn’t have any of the other symptoms. We took him to the Emergancy care ward earlier today where he bestowed his lunch on my aunt and I while waiting for the doctor… but that’s it. I almost wish he would continue to do it ’cause he felt better afterwards. 😦 My poor baby! (Well, not mine but I claim him as such most of the time) I hate sitting by listening to him cry. Pain meds aren’t helping. There’s nothing I can do. 😦 It’s is a lesson in helplessness and I HATE it. Grrr… give me something to fight off any day…

    So guess what! You never will. I love bollywood music (cue eye rolls- it’s the reactoin I get from my fam here in WI and my parents). I love bollywood movies. So, I’ve decided to try and learn Hindi. AND GUESS WHAT! I can write simple sentences! *does happy dance* It’s rediculous how excited I am. Poor Nina is fielding questions left and right. 😀 Kinda feel bad for her… but she’s an angel with a mile worth of patience. *dances again* I can write simple sentences I can write simple sentences. For example: Hum deewane hain. (I am crazy) or Tum deewana hain (you are crazy) or Tum ho dost mere (you are my friends). ^_^

    Okay I’m done showing off… *giggles* I really am excited. ^_^

  703. Rifkind said

    Here’s the link again to that great article that I found.

  704. himmiefan said

    Hey Anzia! I sympathize with Kevin. When I was a child, I would have horrible abdominal pain. Irritable bowel maybe? I ended up growing out of it. Is he lactose intolerant?

    Speaking of Bollywood, one of you mentioned Bride and Prejudice the other day. It’s not Shakespeare, but it was cute. I like Ashwar…. something or another Rai. I just saw her in a movie the other day with Dermot Mulrooney. Mistress of Spices.

    Oh, a movie you might like if you haven’t seen is, yes this is the name, Kama Sutra. It’s by Mira Nair. The guy in it with the long hair is to die for!

    Dizey – yep, Benedict Arnold. My evil mind is at work. 🙂

    Dang Dizey, Claire, and Tango! I’m going to have to haul out my French to English dictionary. My three years of high school French from way, way back just isn’t cutting it. BTW, this has absolutely nothing to do with anything, but my French teach was the mother of the guy in the Dell commerical (Dude, you’re getting a Dell!). When she was pregnant with him….. To quote Henry, “I feel old.”

  705. himmiefan said

    Hey Rifkind – great article!

  706. himmiefan said

    Z – I didn’t read the rest of your post. Writing in Hindi? Cool!

  707. Rifkind said

    I think that the article explains why even our shy-er sisters, find our Blood Ties family so wonderful.
    Hugs to all
    {{{ H U G }}}

  708. himmiefan said

    Amen to that!!

    Now, have a look at this. How can you not love a book with this title?

  709. msgypsy said

    Holy bats; ladies! I may need to start that next topic before the week is up!

    I bought an Ikea bat tonight. He’s adorable and very bright-eyed, and wants me to come cut his tags off now. I also bought a lamp but it turns out to need a very special kind of bulb and I really don’t want to go back to Ikea anytime soon. Argh!

    I’m looking for new, good podcasts. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Going to bed now. And hoping Faraday doesn’t try to eat the bat!

  710. Anzia said

    Himmie- Ashwarya Rai. She was Ms. India. Understandably ’cause that woman is GORGEOUS! So, not fair to be that beautiful. Her husband isn’t too bad to look at either. ^_^ I haven’t seen that movie yet. I want to though. It’s on my list … which always gets longer before it gets shorter…

    For people who don’t know what we’re talking about. This is a clip from Bride & Prejudice. The woman in the orange and pink is Ashwarya Rai. I’m sure you lost fans will recognize the guy in black dancing ^_^ There are subs so you’ll understand what is being said. I promise. ^_^

    Gypsy- I hate it when you buy something and they forget to inform you that there is a special part needed for it to opperate. And when did IKEA get bats? Is it really cute?

    Rifkind- Interesting article. One of my psych professors was specialized in “positive psychology.” Which just means he studied the effects of positive emotions on a persons psyche. Very interesting stuff! It’s also the cutting edge of psychology. Well, at least according to that prof. ^_^ You’ve piqued my psychology fascinated mind …

  711. Margaret said

    Ms. Gypsy: What would you think of printing up your drinking game on some parchment paper, tying a red ribbon around it and including it in the package going to Kyle?

  712. Rifkind said

    I’m sure that the psychology of our online family could be you PHD thesis!
    Hee Hee!
    But Heck, we seek out like minded folks to hang with, and look what a great group we have here!

  713. msgypsy said

    As for printing out the drinking game, sure, that sounds like fun. But we have to do it for all the other birthday presents, too, as it’s got references to all of them. (I have one to add now, thanks to the “You Know You’re an Addict” video on YouTube.)

    There’s a long video of a panel discussion about “Flash Gordon” on the Sci Fi website and it’s got Gina in it but it’s too long for me to watch right now but I’m hoping someone in the audience asked Gina about “Blood Ties” once it was turned over to audience Q&A.

  714. Anzia said

    Rifkind- If I go back to school for it I just might do that. ^_^

    So, Kevin ended up going back to the ER this morning at about 1am. His stomach pain was much worse and still had no other symptoms of the doctor’s diagnosis. Well, my aunt told me that they did x-rays and such and found out that problem was that he was (excuse the following terms) full of Poo. He wasn’t constipated ’cause he’d been going to the bathroom. I’m sure you can imagine my anger at the first doctor who didn’t even run any tests. Just listened to his stomach with her stethoscope and handed us out the door. Grrrr… He’s finally sleeping so lets all hope for a better day today than yesterday. *sigh*

  715. Dani said

    Good morning. I had a total of 40 emails combined from all of you. So totally sweet.

    Anzia-I just watched the BT videos you posted from youtube. Was the first song by Jewel? I do now the country song but I cannot stand Shania Twain. I always used to think she was so slutty. Plus the CT country station played her all the time and I got so sick of her. I have to comment on your Bollywood obsession. I have seen Kama Sutra and I bought it and yes the guy with the long hair is so hot. The guy that plays the prince is on Lost now. I loved Bend It Like Beckham and the Hindi part at the end of Moulin Rouge. Of course, I loved Moulin Rouge period. Ewan Mcgregor is hot with really great voice. Yow!

  716. Maddie Mo said

    Good Morning to all!

    It has been a really really long time, I have missed you all.

  717. Dani said

    I heard from somebody here at work that the other younger object of my affections, zac efron, was arrested for drinking alcohol and selling drugs. That is so incredibly irresponsible on his part. When I heard that I was very disappointed.

  718. Madonna said

    Good morning everyone,

    By all means, please have your mom submit a greeting for the card too.

    Fantastic article!

    I hope now that they have figured out what is wrong that Kevin will be on the mend.

    A co-worker of mine just showed this to me and I had to share…

    The next time someone ruins your day and makes you sad, remember this: It takes 42 muscles to frown, it only takes 4 to reach out and bitch slap the SOB that ruined your day.

    Talk to y’all at break.

  719. DIZEY1 said

    Good morning my Blood Sista’s 😀

    Thanks Dani girl, I also had beau coup emails when I opened up after my butt crack of dawn meeting today. I was a bit worried thought something bad had happened. Glad everyone is doing well. 😉
