Round … what round IS this?

We are SO smokin’ hot, ladies! Here’s the next topic. Go for it! And, just to remind you, here’s the bat again.



  1. prtfvr said

    Oh boy, I’m number one, I’m number one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. To Prtfvr: Yeah yeah…you’re number one. YOU SUCK!!! j/k
    To Ms Gypsy: Awwwwww!!! That bat is SO CUUUTTEEE!!! Where did you get that and how can get one? ๐Ÿ™‚

    It totally bites that the Dresden Files got cancelled. I even taped the season finale so I could watch it before the new season started. Now I don’t even see the point. Weird. It doesn’t sound like Sci-Fi to hang themselves like that. Most of their shows don’t get yanked that easy. Again, weird. I would like to say I hope Flash Gordon would fall, but that’s not true. I’m so happy to see Gina on another show I’ll probably watch it anyways. Plus I have nothing to base my judgement on besides the movie, and that was SO beyond sad. Sadder still, I actually have that movie on tape. My Dad taped it back in the day. Who knows what he was thinking. *g* The only part I ever liked on that movie was the beginning. Me and a friend of mine used to joke about pressing all the disaster buttons at once. *eg*

    Oh! To lwildstar and Anzia, I read you guys fics. To Anzia, YOU ROCK! Although, if Henry was tied to my bed, no way could I have resisted like that. I would’ve been all over him in about 2 seconds…hehe

    Oh…checked out that site. I wanna know what’s up with that Henry nuzzling Vicki’s neck thing…and why I can’t substitute myself for Vicki there. *sigh* And what the heck is up with that big monster cat type thing? Here kitty kitty kitty…hehe

    In other news, everyone catch what happened in New York yesterday with that really bad storm and the tornado? Really freaky weather that…

  3. Grrr…pic link didn’t work..just ignore that.

    Good Morning my peeps ๐Ÿ˜€

    Prtfvr I too am a little tired overslept and didn’t make it to the gym this morning luckily I happend to wake up and the clock said 6:17 only overslept by almost 2 hours ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love the new chat room girl it’s way cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    **Z*** OMG I loved the new chapter, you tease you or I guess I should say Vicki you tease you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. DIZEY1 said

    Oh and Z yes my dawlin’ the pic was a perfect match for the story (hee hee)

  6. Dani said

    Morning guys. The boss has been on vacation this week so I have not done any work except the few very necessary things. I think I should try to get some other work done. What do you think?

  7. DebS said

    I didn’t realize that Dresden Files had been cancelled. That does suck…I really enjoyed the show and have started reading the books. I agree with vampgrl, Sci Fi doesn’t usually give up on their shows that easy.

    On another sci-fi/beloved shows note: My sister heard that sci-fi is bringing back farscape in some form. Currently they are doing webisodes. I don’t know all the details…but that is good news for any Farscape fans. I only watched the show after the fact.

  8. DebS said

    Oh and I found my phone. It was in the pocket of some shorts I wore earlier this morning. I am always losing things.

  9. DebS said

    just seeing if my pic will come up.

  10. DebS said

    still struggling…

  11. lwildstar said

    Anzia – I’ve lost the links to your stories – again – please email them to me! I found links for parts one and two but I’ve lost 3 and 4.

  12. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all,
    Ms gypsy, love the bat he’s really cute.

  13. Himmiefan said

    Anzia – new fan fic. Woo hoo!! I’ll read as soon as I get home.

    Laurel – hope your feeling better. The birthday weed came up last night when I found a smiley face marijuana icon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    DebS- moving in this heat. You have our sympathies!

    I was just over at the previous post reading about the postcards. Now, I’m no expert at all, but I wonder if at this point, that Lifetime has gotten the message and is now waiting to see what the ratings for the new episodes are like. I’m not saying to stop doing postcards – no, no, no, no. I’m just speculating here. Postcards talk, ratings talk even more.

  14. Dani said

    I think this is the 12 or 13 topic that Gypsy has started. We are rockin!

  15. Anzia said

    Okay, just to repost- the links

    New readers- if you want my BT fanfic you can find it all at this link: http://Writing.Com/authors/storyndreams

    Continuing readers- part 4 is here:

    I’m glad you guys like it. I wasn’t too sure how ya’ll would react to Henry’s…um… situation. ^_^ Just wait ’til she gets back from the kitchen..

  16. DebS said

    Thanks Himmiefan. I am almost done moving. I only have to get a few more things out of the old apt, clean out the fridge and get rid of some paint spots on the floor.

    I agree with you about the ratings. That will truly be the clencher. I think I read somewhere awhile back that Lifetime prez is thinking about building a night of fall programming around Blood Ties. This was back in June, but if true that spells good news for our show. It would be the centerpiece for that night of television. The way that Army Wives is the centerpiece for Sunday nights right now.

  17. DIZEY1 said

    DebS I agree about the Saturday night thing, I’ve got another **100** of these little suckers to hand write and mail as soon as I get them written. WHew man I wish I could find a way to print them from my darned computer ist would expedite so much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Anzia said

    lwildstar (and basically everyone else)-I sent you links dear! ^_^

  19. DIZEY1 said

    **Z** I got it baby and I LOVED it as usual. You really can write and I think you could publish something someday. I do so love the pocket scene , oh and the pelvic squat ๐Ÿ˜‰ yeah buddy it was good and I may have to go for a re-read ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Maddie Mo said

    Anzia- would you send it to me as well.

  21. Anzia said

    I just sent ’em Maddie ^_^

  22. elizabeth said

    Good morning everyone. I will be checking in periodically while I try to tie up some last minute business before vacation. I wonder if Lifetime will do a marathon of the first episodes as an intro to the new season? It seems like a lot of channels do that nowadays. I also hope they put some advertising behind it this time so people know it is there.

    I didn’t hear that Farscape may be back. I used to love that show…Ben browder is such a cutie! I am bummed about The Dresden files. I really liked that show.

  23. Margaret said

    “Blood Ties” Gets a Premiere Date!

    Lifetime just made this announcement:

    Posted by LT Gina 08/09/07 12:13pm GMT

    Get ready to set those DVR’s because the official announcement is out! Starting October 12, “Blood Ties” will be making its highly anticipated return with ten straight weeks of new episodes every Friday at 11 pm et/pt. If your new to the series (or just want a little refresher before season two) you can get full episodes online or through iTunes.

    And we know the burning question on everyone’s mind is will Vicky and Henry quit beating around the bush and just hook up already? Guess you’ll just have to tune in to find out, no won’t you?!? (But we love hearing your predictions.)

  24. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret Friday nights wow that’s a surprise it was supposed to be Saturday but I guess that was before they sat down and tweaked the line up . That should be a good night don’t ya’ll think??

  25. DIZEY1 said

    Is anyone having computer prob’s I am, this sucks more than Henry Fitzroy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Margaret said

    Or, are they hoping everyone will be out on a Friday night date and the ratings will tank? Sorry to sound like such a gremlin. I just don’t trust them.

  27. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret……”Sometimes you’ve got to have Faith” by Henry Fitzroy and he is a very Fine, Hunky, Studly MAN ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. Dani said

    Friday at 11? That is really late. It is a good thing that it isn’t a work night. They were also originally going to show 2 episodes a night for 5 weeks. They changed it to 1 show a night for 10 weeks. I don’t know about you guys but this sounds really good to me. It is also makes it appear that they have listened to some of our suggestions.

  29. Anzia said

    I don’t know, friday nights are usually death toles for TV shows. They have to go up against family events, school events, Professional sports…

    that worries me a bit…

  30. Dani said

    At 11? I didn’t think would be to much to go up against at that time. We will show them.

  31. elizabeth said

    It looks like I will be having some late Friday nights…but, woo hoo…who cares!

  32. Himmiefan said

    DebS – Yeah, I’m still feeling optimistic, yet impatient for the series to start filming again. If they stopped in April and started again in, say November, that would be seven months. Maybe that’s not bad in TV land. In Himmieland it’s forever!! If BT is renewed, I bet it will be featured in Lifetime’s winter promotion since it’s already part of their fall lineup. Now, I don’t know what’s up with the two episodes a night unless their trying to draw in the audience and have them sit through some of their other shows.

  33. Himmiefan said

    11 pm? Not so bad in Central, but what’s up with that?

    Do they think the paranormal theme is more suited to late at night?

  34. Madonna said

    How are all you ladies doing?

    Hey Margaret,
    Where exactly did you find that announcement at?

    I may be wrong but I actually think this is good news. True 11pm is a bit late, but it is a Friday and in terms of television programming Friday is better than Saturday.

    Also, they are going to stretch the episodes out for 10 weeks instead of the 2 a night for 5. I’ll admit that that had me worried that they were planning on showing the remaining 10 and then dumping it. I think maybe they are trying their best to align it up with their schedule.

    Oh Elizabeth, Have a wonderful vacation.

  35. Himmiefan said

    Oh good – ten weeks of episodes instead of five. That puts the show into December. If they buy more (and they’d better!), I bet they’ll premier them in February for sweeps month.

  36. elizabeth said

    Oh, ick…I just had a terrible thought. If it is 11pm ET does that mean it won’t hit us until 2am? Help me here, Laurel/msgypsy…tell me I am wrong ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  37. Madonna said

    That should have been trying to align it up with Canada’s schedule.

  38. prtfvr said

    Damn! Who premieres a new show on a Friday at 11? ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! At least I’ll be able to stay up late and not worry about the next day. But still…

  39. Madonna said

    What time did you get to see it on Sundays Elizabeth?

  40. prtfvr said

    I would think that it means 11 pm in your time too. Just like the 10 pm Sunday slot but what do I know? This whole thing reeks of the axe!

  41. msgypsy said

    Driving by…

    Friday puts BT head-to-head with Doctor Who. I think that’s an improvement over what I think they were about to do which is put it up against BBC-America’s Torchwood.

    Yes, I take my cult genre viewing terribly seriously.

  42. Madonna said

    Stay positive prtfvr! POSITIVE….. POSITIIVE….. POSITIVE……. Just keep chanting that!

  43. msgypsy said

    Relax, Elizabeth, if it’s on at 11 on Lifetime, it’s on at 11 our time. Probably 10 in the central and mountain time zones, though.

  44. Himmiefan said

    What are the chances SciFi could buy the entire first season, then purchase 22 more episodes? I know SciFi can be brutal to its shows, but at this point, it’s the best channel for this theme.

    Another option could be the USA Network.

  45. Dani said

    Lifetime won’t sell the first season to SciFi though.

  46. Dani said

    Or any other station.

  47. msgypsy said

    I’m not sure but I think the two a night thing may have referred to them showing the previous week’s episode in the preceding hour time slot. (E.g., Ep 14 at 11, and then the following week Ep 14 at 10 and Ep 15 at 11.) Does that make sense? It might not be what’s happening but it seems to me they were discussing this possibility.

    Also, the two a day was possibly the entire first “season” to get everyone caught up.

    Gotta go pretend to work now.

  48. elizabeth said

    Madonna – it actually came on twice out here. Once at 7pm, which I always watched and then again at 10pm. Good thing it is programmed into my DVR – it won’t matter what time it comes on, it will just automatically record it.

    Thanks, msgypsy, I just freaked for a moment. I am taking deep calming breaths ๐Ÿ™‚ Torchwood looks like it might be interesting, so I programmed that in to record as well. I am a recent convert to Doctor Who, but I am enjoying it. I am also waiting to see some of the other shows that have been mentioned…Twilight, True Blood, New Amsterdam. If you know of any others – let me know. I love these type of programs.

  49. DebS said

    11pm is late. But in recent years, paranormal shows have proven to do quite well on Fridays…Stargates, BSG (which did eventually move to Sunday, but started on Fridays), Ghost Whisperer, and Psych (loosely based in paranomal, the fake kind anyway). So, I am not suprised they have moved it to Fridays. But really, 11pm, that isn’t even primetime anymore, that is late night now.

  50. elizabeth said

    Hey, Laurel – I hope you are feeling better?

  51. Dani said

    That might be true Ms Gypsy but I remember reading that it was 2 episodes a week for 5 weeks.

  52. DebS said

    I would rather we have one a week. I don’t know why they feel the need to rush. Besides, I don’t know if the blog can handle us talking about 2 eps a week. Remember what would happen we only had one a week?

  53. Madonna said

    They said they were going to build a night around Blood Ties. Does anybody else know what is going to be shown on Fridays before it?

  54. elizabeth said

    I’m sending out reminders for people I have “turned” so that they are sure to watch the show this time. Oh, man, I can’t wait for these next shows ๐Ÿ˜‰

  55. Dani said

    I have been wondering what the plans were. I think they might have a show with that psychic Lisa something or another and some other things of the supernatural.

  56. DebS said

    I think Dani is right on that one. I don’t know that Lifetme has revealed its fall scheduling yet. Cable channels tend to do it at differnt times than network tv. Boy, am I nerd or what?

  57. Madonna said

    Lisa Williams is an established show that does really well for them or so I hear so maybe they are hoping those viewers will stick around for Blood Ties and thus get more viewers.

  58. jpbaci1 said

    DRESDEN FlIES GONE WHY???? gina holden got good review in new york daily nes today

  59. Dani said

    I always liked John Edwards when he was on SciFi. I have not been able to watch Lisa Williams though. Hey isn’t funny that they have similar last names as in a guys name with an “s” added on the end. Maybe it is just a coinkidink

  60. DIZEY1 said

    I think it’s a good thing, very Martha-ish sorry. But I say stay positive girls we’re gonna be well compensated for all our hard work , our labors of love (HENRY LOVE) ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d much rather them be spread out and it would be chaotic on the blog. Poor Tanya ๐Ÿ˜€

  61. Himmiefan said

    Okay, me speculating again. I was just re-reading the announcement, and they acknowledge the use of DVRs. Interesting. You know, Nielsen is making changes to take into account DVRs, etc. So, maybe timeslots aren’t as much of a big deal anymore since viewing is much more flexible than it was years ago – pre VCR.

  62. Dani said

    I like having it be spread out also. I didn’t like the idea of 2 episodes a night for 5 weeks. I like it this way better.

  63. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna ya know that’s a very good point w/the Lisa show before and Ms.Daniels is a very smart business woman, she’s been there and done that for other networks , I think she’s trying to help out our show.

  64. DIZEY1 said

    hey Dani is John Edward still on anywhere I used to watch him and actually saw him here when he toured

  65. Dani said

    I don’t think he is on anymore. You saw him on tour? That would be so incredibly awesome. Was he really good. I got goosebumps watching his show. I will check and get back to you about whether he is on anywhere anymore.

  66. elizabeth said

    Himmiefan – I agree with your thoughts on the DVR phenomenan. I actually prefer to record my favorite shows so I can skip through the commercials ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have also caught Lisa Williams show a couple of times and was interested enough I watched the whole thing rather than move on.

  67. elizabeth said

    Could you imagine John Edwards actually doing a reading (or whatever it is called) for you? Just think of the closure you could get in some situations.

  68. Himmiefan said

    It’s hard watching a show that hasn’t been taped because of the commericals. Yes, I’m still back in the stone age with my VCR.

  69. Dani said

    Diz-Go here. I guess he is on WE now which I don’t get. Bummer!

  70. DIZEY1 said

    I went to see him when he toured and he is awesome, I believe in all this stuff , don’t laugh at me ๐Ÿ˜€ My mom and I went after my sister passed and of course you’re hoping for this great revelation but it was an auditorium full of people so the loudest spirit’s get through firtst I guess. I’m surpirsed because if you knew Kathy , the gemini she was a bit bitchy can I say.

    See ya when I get back from lunch, I’ a hungry chickadee ๐Ÿ˜‰

  71. Dani said

    O I am so looking on closure from my grandfather dying in January. We all know it wasn’t natural causes but my grandmother adamantly refused an autopsy. Also 6 years ago my mother’s Uncle Frank and cousin Frankie were killed at the hands of Frankie. I have not been the same since that happened. I have always wondered if Uncle Frank forgave Frankie.

  72. Dani said

    Maybe she was so happy and content in heaven she didn’t have anything to bitch about. That should be a sign that she is ok.

  73. Margaret said

    Himmiefan: You’re not along, I still have a VCR to tape things with, the only new with it is that it does play DVD’s. Haven’t had a good enough cash flow to get one that converts the VHS tapes into DVD’s yet.

  74. Dani said

    That is what I so love about my combo DVD/VCR player. It converts VHS to DVD.

  75. prtfvr said

    Dani: That was a disturbing drive-by image you posted about your grandfather. Has this been discussed before because it doesn’t seem familiar to me.


  76. Dani said

    We know he had been going downhill for a few years, in and out of the hospital at least once a year for the past 4 years. He went in in December sometime and he was there for 7 weeks. The first night there his heart actually started to stop. My grandmother said she wasn’t ready to lose him so the hospital had to do everything in their power to keep him alive. They decided to put a pacemaker in so that week he had the surgery. Afterwards his whole left side was black and blue and no one even noticed until my mother saw it. He developed blood poisoning because it turns out the pacemaker was infected and defective. They took it out and were going to put a new one in when the poisoning cleared up. The hospital were giving him something to make him go(you know) a lot. He was not feeling well. The hospital ran tests and found out he either had to much or not enough potassium. I can’t remember which it was. The doctors never told us that he had the potassium problem. They kept all of us in the dark about it. He was losing an obscene amount of weight. He didn’t even look like him. They kept putting him ICU and taking him out. He was getting so warn out. One day he asked the nurse for some water, she gave it to him and left. She went back a bit later and he was gone.

    Trust me it had nothing to do with my grandmother. They loved each other so much. We have tried talking into doing the autopsy but she didn’t want to have to go through it, put him and us through it. If you ask me something was not right with what the hospital was doing. We think my grandmother would have had a plausible lawsuit but she wouldn’t do it.

    Now that I am all shaky after going over that again I am going to get a breath of fresh air.

  77. DebS said

    Dani-My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know that it may have been a little while ago, but that doesn’t take away from the pain of it. Especially when a hosptial handles things the way they do. My great-grandmother (the rock of my family) has been in and out of the hospital the last few years, and there have been situations that I found absolutely apalling when it came to the hospital treatment of her.

  78. Dani said

    He had horrible bed sores also. He was so humiliated when he couldn’t control his bowels and messed a lot. I can imagine how degrading that can be. He was feeling so awful and thought it was his fault. It kills me just to think about. I will never be over it. I wrote about it one my poems.

  79. Dani said

    Gee I thought I was done crying over it. I guess not.

  80. elizabeth said

    Dani – I am so sorry that you are still grieving. It is a long process, especially when you feel it is unresolved. I know – I still get blindsided when I think of my father, but it has gotten better over time. *big hug*

  81. msgypsy said

    Dani, {{{hugs}}} I really HATE hospitals and how they treat people. Goes along with the situation with Kevin from yesterday. Doctors frequently have no clue what real people need to be treated like.

    I’m extremely lucky that I have only once spent a night in a hospital and that was to keep a friend of mine company after her C-Section born baby was taken to a different hospital to the neo-natal ICU. (Dad went with baby, so I stayed with Mom.)

  82. Maddie Mo said

    Dani- I’m sorry for your pain. I understand it completely. My grandfather was in the hospital for months before he passed. I wouldn’t deal with it when it first happened and it really hit me hard a few months later. It takes a long time.

  83. Dani said

    Thanks! You guys are great. I know it will get better. I will be ok. The pain will eventually dull but never die. Right now it slices right through me. When I visit Gram I still expect him to be sitting in his chair watching the Patriots or UCONN basketball. I decided I am going to laminate the poem and put it at his grave.

  84. Anzia said

    Dani- (((HUGS))) I’m so sorry honey. I’ve never been in a situation where i knew a loved one was dying so I can’t tell you I’ve been there. But I do know the pain of losing a grandparent. I’m really sorry. (((HUGS))) I’m sure in all this heat all the hugs are a great help! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love ya sweety!

  85. elizabeth said

    As much as I am resisting I am going to have to sign off. I have a few errands to run before I leave in the morning for my vacation. So, everyone, keep me posted *wink, wink* if anything happens and I will try to catch up on all the posts when I get back on the 21st. Take care, everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  86. Dani said

    Actually the heat and humidity has disappeared for today, 78 and perfect. It will be back though. I welcome all the hugs I can get. Yum Hershey Kisses Hugs w/almonds.

  87. Dani said

    Have a great vacation E. Luv ya.

  88. DebS said

    Enjoy your vacaton, E! Can’t wait to hear about it when you get back.

  89. Himmiefan said

    Oh shoot Dani, now you’ve made me cry. Oh course, I can cry over a commerical.


  90. Himmiefan said

    Hey Margaret! You know, I’d invest in the DVR thing, but there are only a few shows I watch.

  91. Madonna said

    I’m so sorry you are still in so much pain. (((((((((((BIG BEAR HUG))))))))))

    I have an extremely large extended family and we have been touched by death many, many times over the past 10 years. What I can tell you is that the loss and the hole in your life will always be there but the intense pain of it lessens with time. You’ve got all of our “shoulders” to cry on.

  92. Dani said

    Again thank you very much. I feel blessed to have you all as I know we all feel about each other.

  93. Madonna said

    Does anyone else need chocolate now?

  94. Dani said

    I could use a big solid chocolate bunny right now. Forget that hollow crap.

  95. msgypsy said

    I never turn down chocolate.

    Elizabeth, a belated bon voyage!

    Speaking of none of that, my kitchen has a major ant infestation. Ant traps aren’t helping. And they’re not going after the side of the kitchen where the (well sealed) canisters are. They’re heading for the side where the coffee maker, the KitchenAid mixer, and food processor, the blender, etc. are. Like they want to learn to cook or something. I just had to give up part of my lunch because a couple of the bastids traveled here in it. YEUCHHHHH! Time for really powerful ant repellant. Ick!

  96. Dani said

    When I came back to work after the funeral and stuff my desk was a mess and everything was so screwed up it took me weeks to get everything back in order. I ended up having a really bad breakdown. You should have seen my cute little grandmother when she found out. She looked ready to storm into the office and lay into everybody. Let me tell you, after that breakdown, whenever I take time off things are almost perfect when I get back.

  97. prtfvr said

    Well, I sure started something, didn’t I?

    Dani: I have some experience losing someone close to me. Not having closure is when it hurts the most. We’re here to cheer you up though.

    So smile or else ms.gypsy’s bat gets it!

  98. DIZEY1 said

    Dani girl so sorry to bring up sad memories, my bad. You are right I think Kathy made peace up there and didn’t have anything to complain about ๐Ÿ™‚

    I too get those sad missing you moments but I do have an inner peace that they are the ones better off and one day I’ll be with them again. There is a peace in knowing they aren’t suffering anymore. Love you and know we feel your loss. XOXOXOXOX ๐Ÿ™‚

  99. Dani said

    I’m smiling. Now don’t worry.

  100. msgypsy said

    NO! NO! Not the bat!!!!!!!

    I have to go back to work now so the rest of you had better defend my poor little unnamed bat!

  101. Madonna said

    MMMMM…. Hot fudge sundae.

    This is old news but it does tell us what Lifetime has planned for Fridays and helps explain why Blood Ties is on at 11.

  102. Dani said

    Yeah I keep thinking he has got the best for all his football and basketball and baseball games. That and him and Uncle Frank are really hooping it up there. They are brothers.

  103. Dani said

    You are great at cheering people up guys. I have peppy music playing right now and things look all rosy again.

  104. Himmiefan said

    Ms Gypsy – I’m sitting here eating my therapy chocolate laughing at the thought of an ant eater in your kitchen. Strange, I know.

  105. Madonna said

    Man my last post disappeared so here I’ll post it again.

    This is old but it tells us what Lifetime has planned for Fridays and kind of explains why Blood Ties is on at 11. There’s a whole night of supernatural programming and just think with Blood Ties they save the best for last.

  106. prtfvr said

    ms.gypsy: Our dishwasher has been leaking under our kitchen floor for weeks and we had to replace the dishwasher and are getting a new floor the first day of our vacation (20th).

    Until then, I’m living with a kitchen that literally smells like shit – but no one can smell it besides me because I have this hyper developed sense of smell. They’re all telling me I’m crazy and I’m like “You know I must love you because the worst of the shit smell is right in front of the damned oven!”

    But the worst part? Every time I have a leak anywhere in the house, I get water bugs. Giant f-ing water bugs and the floor’s been leaking for WEEKS. You all know that water bugs are just giant roaches, right? So I have fricking huge roaches in my kitchen! OMG! It’s SO embarassing not to mention I’m itchy as hell now. Real or imagined!

    When the dude came to install the dishwasher he was supposed to take the old one out but my kid told me he wouldn’t take it because when he pulled it out it was INFESTED with roaches! And that it could contaminate the other appliances in the truck!

    So now I’m a leper! Then they tell me he said that it was a good thing that we didn’t have more roaches than came out because then he would have had to leave and not installed the dish washer at all!

    So I go home, all embarassed about the installation dude seeing my buggy house…OH and he went in the birdroom which looks like…well, a bird room as if the roaches weren’t bad enough. Anyhow, I ask my kid how many roaches flooded out of the dish washer and do you know what he said? “3”

    Anteater, there noses crack me up. Hey wasn’t and anteater. Oh no maybe he was an aardvark. Oh hell I don’t know.

  108. Madonna said

    I have Henry playing right now and from my point of view things are looking really really rosy.

  109. Dani said

    NO FAIR!

  110. Madonna said

    Stone Cold…. Thump, thump…. Thump thump

  111. Himmiefan said

    After Prtfvr’s bugs (As a homeowner, I really do sympathize, BTW), I need chocolate and Henry! In huge doses!

  112. Dani said

    I love that scene. That was my OMG moment from that episode. My heart is thumping now.

  113. prtfvr said

    himmie! I won’t be your chocolate crutch, girl! Admit you want the chocolate no matter what the problem. You’ll feel better! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Oh, and I ate a little pack of Pepperidge Farm Chessman. I bit all their little heads off and then their feet. I was very…satisfying! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  114. Dani said

    Ok guys it is time for me to go home and relax. I really need it now. I will indulge in hotdogs and my mother’s potato salad tonight. Oh wait she bought me some taquitos and sour cream. Those sound really good too. Now I don’t know what I want.

  115. Dani said

    prtfvr-You sick little thing you.

  116. Dani said

    Oops I forgot my trademark ciao.


  117. Madonna said

    Bye Dani

  118. Himmiefan said

    LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

  119. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna I watched “Mike was there, what, Michael Celluci of your acquaintance was at the house of Elena Kanolpolis(hooked on phonics) suspected Gorgon as we were leaving I-SAW- HIM ” (hee hee hee) I love that epi. I watch one every morning while I put on my makeup in front of the 50″ flat screen……Ahhhh BIG HENRY ๐Ÿ˜€

  120. DIZEY1 said

    Ciao Dani baby, have a good evening, Luv Ya!!!

  121. DIZEY1 said

    prtfvr are we a twisted bunch or what , oh I live in the south hot muggy and the freakin roaches…..big enough to put a saddle on and ride. Not that I’d want to , yuck man.

  122. Maddie Mo said

    OMG I need to vent! hope ya’ll don’t mind.

    The husband is being a complete jerk today. Changes his plans for the weekend then expects me to change mine and gets mad ” cause I didn’t ask him before I committed to something”. He had already laid out in detail what his plan was for the weekend and so I thougth it was pretty safe for me to plan mine around his arrangements. I am SO not talking to him when I get home, and he can cook his own damn dinner.

    Sorry for the rant.

  123. DebS said

    prtfvr-Crazyiness with the water bugs. That is so something you can’t even help! We are sisters in house appearance embarassement. Remember my story from last night?

  124. Madonna said

    That is my favorite part of that episode. I just love the teasing look Henry has on his face.

  125. DIZEY1 said

    Maddie-Mo I feel for ya’ got no hubby but I can oly imagine how you feel. Yeah he’d be cooking his own dinner and wouldn’t be getting any “DESSERT” ๐Ÿ˜‰ either, hmmmmm. No apologies neccessary.

  126. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna I so love that he kind of tickles himself, and is actually laughing. Henry doesn’t really have many belly laughs. I do also love the “Your the best lie detector a girl could ask for” and thumper gets me too. Tanya is such a great writer, she knows what we like doesn’t she?

  127. Maddie Mo said

    He is getting NO “dessert” today and tomorrow ain’t looking good for him either. I pretty sure that I left the ” obey” part out of my vows for a reason. Oh and I should point out that when he detailed his plans for the weekend I was told not asked about anything. He’s an a$$ sometimes.

  128. DIZEY1 said

    Oh yeah I need Dr.Z to shrink my head and shoot me up with some Henry’s chocolate chains and I also need a “Blow Henry Pop” I’m longing man. I’m single and what can I say! I want him (a girl can dream ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  129. Whoa, not only did you guys move, but you also posted over 100x.

    I’m feeling better today, but I know that it’s an illusion.

    I’ll be spending the rest of the day curled up with Sherrilyn Kenyon’s new book Devil May Cry.

    Acheron… *drool*

  130. DIZEY1 said

    Maddie “MEN” notice that’s the end of “WOMEN” hmmm was God making a joke?? I think it’s on them . I’d say daddy’s in the dawg house ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  131. DIZEY1 said

    Hey DebS gotta ask who’d the peeps behind your name”” I wanted to ask you earlier??

  132. DIZEY1 said

    That’s WHO’S behind your name

  133. Maddie Mo said

    speaking of desert. one of the girls here heard me yelling at the spousal unit on the phone and went to the frozen custard place down the road. it’s called Dirty Cake and it is better than sex. Brownie, chocolate custard, oreos, and chocolate sauce. I think the part of my brain that craves sex and chocolate will be happy for days

  134. DIZEY1 said

    OOhhh OOOhhh Lady A the other bowl came today and I can send off probably Saturday but I may be able to get to the Post office tomorrow. Email me tonight at home with the address I need to send it to. Wow cool beans I’m really stoked now oh and remind me to give you the address Prtfvr gave me to ship them to. I’ll tuck some cash in there for the Canadian shipping . ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy girls :0 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  135. DIZEY1 said

    See Maddie so you don’t need him , at least for tonight ๐Ÿ˜‰ Damn that sounds so good. The MS. Mud Pie gypsy gave last night sounded damned good too, may have to try and make that bad boy this weekend. I ‘ll need something to do while writing out 100 postcards.

  136. DebS said

    Dizey-They are John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer from The Office (US Version) They play unrequited lovebirds Jim and Pam. Over the past 2 months I have become addicted to The Office. May be the only tv obsession that has got me through this BT drought we are in.

    I am so ready for the Fall TV Season. Has anyone seen the previews for Pushing Daisies. It looks both visually and artistically amazing.

  137. Pushing Daisies has piqued my interest. I do plan on trying to watch a few episodes.

    It has a Six Feet Under feel to it, at least that is what I get from the ads.

  138. Maddie Mo said

    Alrighty girls I am out of here for the night. If you don’t hear from me tomorrow, I killed him send bail money!!

    Love ya!!!

  139. Take a nice long bath, Maddie Mo.

    Take care!!

  140. DebS said

    I am also out of here. I am taking my little sister (thru Big Brothers/Big Sisters) out to a movie tonight. I will check in at the chat room later tonight.

  141. Have fun DebS!

  142. DIZEY1 said

    Bye Maddie and DebS have fun @ the movies and Maddie Henry will come and break you out if need be.

  143. Pomegranate cherry juice is pretty nasty.


  144. I got the doggy toy today!!!! He’s cute as a button!

    I’m gonna put him somewhere safe until I get the rest of the presents in.

  145. Chery said

    Hey everyone Now is not the time to STOP with postcards and pressure on Life Time! Remember they have already purchased these 10 episodes!


    Sorry, but I feel that we can’t let our work go down the drain. I think we need to keep up the pressure a while longer………….

  146. Madonna said

    Lady A,
    That’s great! Happy to hear he arrived safe and sound.

  147. DIZEY1 said

    No problem Chery I ‘m writing some of them tonight , I seem to be doing these every night now. I’m still with ya girl count me in ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lady A he looks so cute I need to get one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  148. I want to get one of my own now!! He’s watching over us as we chat here at Ms. Gypsy’s. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  149. DIZEY1 said

    He looks even cuter in your pic’, he’s gonna love this stuff ! I wish I could be there when he opens this up, oh heck why not you and I hand deliver to him?

    You know Henry obtient le service avec un sourire ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    ok chix I’ll check ya’ll out when I get home ๐Ÿ™‚

  150. lol If I could hand deliver the package I would. It would be a great road trip.

  151. Himmiefan said

    Hey DebS – if you need something else to drool over until BT starts back up, check out Burn Notice on USA Network. Major yum! 9:00 tonight Central.

  152. Madonna said

    Lady A,
    I’d have to make that road trip with you ya know.

  153. I have a feeling we would have to rent a charter bus to make the trip just to deliver this package.

  154. Margaret said

    Question: But can you see that we’re going to accomplish anything by sending post cards when you know they’re probably waiting to see how the ratings are going to be? I was thinking about working on the advertisers over the next 8 weeks and then start cranking up with the post cards when it starts up in October. Opinions people? I’m so confused…..

  155. Madonna said

    I can just see it now. A whole bus load of us, walking up to his door.

    “Special delivery for Mr. Kyle Schmid.”

  156. Madonna said

    I hate to disappoint you but I don’t think it is anywhere near time to take the pressure off of Lifetime.

  157. I think we can slow down on the postcards and start focusing on grabbing new viewers. Send them to to watch the videos and catch up on the show. Encourage the new folks to send in postcards.

    I’ve spent a good chunk of time this week on IMDB telling folks over there to send in postcards. I’ve been doing the same on Myspace.

    Contacting the advertisers is a brilliant idea! They never get contacted about their ads during a specific show. Can you email out a list of advertisers that aired during Blood Ties and also the address you’ve used to contact them? That is if it isn’t too much trouble.

    We also might try adding to the postcards that Lifetime is missing huuuuge opportunities to advertise by ignoring events like Comic Con. There are tons of small and large Sci-Fi conventions world wide. It is a built in audience for Blood Ties and they have not tapped into it!

    Anyone else have any ideas? I’m trying to do what I can with my limited resources. I did get paid yesterday and I will try to gt some postcards this week so that I can start sending them in.

  158. lwildstar said

    well I’ve made it home between one storm and the next – though with the firston all we gat was thunder no rain – I’m hopin the second one rains – my plants are sad and my water bill is too high all ready to keep watering them ;(

    Maddonna – a bus load of crazed women might send the poor boy into shock! But it would be sooo much fun!

    Anzia – I just finished reading part 4 – LOVE IT!

    Dani – looking forward to hearing from you tomorrow

    Margaret – I have my 10 cards ready fro tomorrow!

    Friday nights huh? I can deal with that – I’m going to set both VCRs to tape so that I have aback up this time! Then I’ll have my cousin put them on disk to that I don’t ware them out…but 11pm! good grief – I am not a night person…at least on a Friday night I don’t have to get up early the next morning.

    well the thunder is starting again – I’m ging to log off and if the storm passes I’ll be back after dinner. Oh if any of you made it over to LT to see the announcement – did you notice the coming attractions for the new show Gahterings – its about witches…..

  159. I think by the time October rolls around everyone on my friends list will either be watching the show or cursing me.

    I post about Blood Ties at least once a day.

  160. Margaret said

    Tango posted the advertisers here several conversations ago I think. Let me see if I can find them.

  161. Margaret said

    I can’t seem to find them. Someone needs to email Tango and see if she wasn’t the one who posted them. Maybe post them here so everyone can copy and print.

  162. DIZEY1 said

    Miss Madonna begging your pardon, most certainly you would hand deliver that glorious piece of art. ๐Ÿ˜€ Man you need to make a copy of it for posterity. This is copulation of a wonderful group of women who met by chance because of a well woven story that captured us from the minute that a woman named Vicki Nelson rounded the street corner and made a call to her mom. I so am yearning for some new episodes.

    Margaret she was I’ll see what I can find for you Lady A, got the email for the shipment. I’ll let you know when I send them. What do you think is the best way to send them?? Fed-Ex, UPS , Post Office ??

  163. either UPS or Post Office. Fed-Ex and I have never really gotten along. *they always manage to lose me packages*

  164. lwildstar said

    I have the list – will email to those on my BT group and you can pass it on.

  165. DIZEY1 said

    Cool Lady A , I’ll let ya’ know when they go ๐Ÿ˜‰ Woooo Hooooo I ‘m excited for him to get this very school girl of me. ;-D

  166. lwildstar said

    Ok I think I may have sent the sponsor list to the wrong group – I think I responded to someones email and it went to every one they had sent that email too….so if some one got the sponsore list and didn’t want it – oooopps, sorry.

    Dad called to tell me that he “followed my instructions” and took my old dinning room table to the General Hospital’s thrift shop and they were very pleased with the donation – but he forgot to get a receipt….oh well, I just didn’t want it to end up in the dump and the thrift store gives about 75% of the profits back to the community – they sponsor several organizations that help battered and abused women and children…now if I can just get him to go pick up my new table – he said it was raining too hard this afternoon for him to go get it ๐Ÿ™‚ dads – got to lov-em.

    Well I’m tired and cranky and heading off to bed! Happy Henry Dreams my ladies!

  167. vicki said

    hey all…

    I think the Friday night thing is a good thing.. I was worried about the 2 episodes a week..(That to me smelled of death.) But I like the Friday at 11pm//Gives me more hope. WHEEEeee

    I LOVE JOhn Edwards…he rocks.. I SOOO wanted to see him in concert, but I didnt get the chance. My husband thinks its all bull, but I watched his show and it justs seemed like he knew things that were impossible to “guess” at. I have always wondered about a friend of mine who died while we were in high school. (he was allergic to bees, and got stung) I think about him every summer and just wonder ….stuff….

    well…if everyone is having a chocolate fit…Has anyone tried the dark chocolate M&M’s????? Plain and Peanut…>TOTALLY FAB!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am eating them now..

    BTW>>…my deep cleaning fit is OVER!!!..Finished the last room today WHOOO HOOOooo…

    THANK GOD!! I am soo tired…now I have about a week 1/2 before back to school…I will rest and recharge.

  168. DebS said

    I just got home…I have no clue if anyone is around, but I thought I would say hey.

    Finally finished moving. Old apt is completely clear. New apt is bursting at the seams. I am going to be unpacking all weekend (in between BT watching, of course).

    Just saw Underdog. I took Alexis, a 10 year old that I mentor to see it. It was actually a really cute moving, pretty good. I was shocked.

  169. Chery said

    Ms. Gypsy Help!

    All of the conversation in Henry’s Hens chat room is coming to my personal E-mail address. help!

  170. prtfvr said

    It is?! What the hell! I don’t even know how that’s possible.

  171. prtfvr said

    Chery, cut and paste some of the text in the emails you’re getting and send them to me so I can see what it looks like. Worst case you’ll have to block that address from sending mail.

  172. AlisaSG said

    >> hey allโ€ฆ
    >> I think the Friday night thing is a good thing..

    maybe not.. see below.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    >> This is old news but it does tell us what Lifetime has planned for Fridays and helps explain why Blood Ties is on at 11.

    That’ll put a crimp into Sci-Fi’s Friday night line-up.
    If not a permanent wound. this is going to become the
    “who’s building what (programming) around what?”

    Monk and Psych on USA already killed some of Sci-Fi’s Stargate programming, being aired at the same times (as if in competition with their own sister network channel! NBC owns both USA and Sci-Fi).

    And if it isn’t Doctor Who on Friday being repeated at 11PM, it might be Stargate Atlantis, or possibly Flash Gordon (if the show lasts that long).

    that’ll also put a wrench into laceym’s TV BlogBlog viewing for ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    She’s been tracking and writing reviews about Supernatural,
    Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and BLOOD TIES..

    not everyone has more than one VCR or DVR/VCR.. let alone Tv set.
    I know we’re living in a more technological age, but some things just have to wait because there isn’t enough time to cram everything into one day or whatever.

    Unless everyone can coordinate this “Friday NIGHT line-up” on all network channels — Somebody’s Tv network is going to suffer a ratings slip. If it doesn’t help BT, it’ll be the death knell for SG-Atlantis (rumors have been heading that way for a while, and this new “Line-up” might be the nail that sinks Atlantis back into the sea).

    PS- LIFETIME can air its Psychic programming anytime. I don’t watch those (nor the *ghostie* Ghost-buster reality type shows) on the Sci-Fi channel, either.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  173. Anzia said

    can just see it now. A whole bus load of us, walking up to his door.

    โ€œSpecial delivery for Mr. Kyle Schmid.โ€

    Okay, there’s a few problems with that scenario. 1) how many of us would actually walk? We’d be throwing each other outa the way to get to the door! (come on, you know it’s true!) 2) The person who actually said, “special delivery of Mr. Kyle Schmid” (especially if it wasn’t me) might not be talking about the box that someone behind her had in their hand. BUT, I am SOOOO in for the road trip… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    *pulls out a big box and sets up a table* Okay, Dr. Z is in. I have Choclate chains (dark, milk & new Mint flavored) for everyone. The Blow Henry Pops now come in Blood Red Cherry, SUCKulant Strawberry, Normelon (go ahead, groan), Chocolate Dream (there’s a surprise in the middle of those), Tongue-ing Raspberry…

  174. Anzia said

    Okay, that first comment sounds snarky and it wasn’t ment to be. Just fun (possibly funny) sry

  175. Laurel said

    Anzia – Darn right we would be throwing each other outa the way! Of course, we would do it in the nicest possible way (no broken bones or black eyes). I’m going to need some steel-toed sprinting shoes….Nike is very near here and I still have friends who work there. Hmmmm.

  176. himmiefan said

    Alisa – you know, I really like Stargate Atlantis, but this season has been a bit of a waste. Seems like they go out of their way to not have much about the characters personal lives, which creates a boring story. You can do a show about shoot em ups just so many times. I mean, why did they bring Ronan on, what’s the point to Teyla (other than to over enunciate), and what’s up with killing off the doctor?

    Okay, sorry for the non-BT rant. I just hate to see a good show go to waste. I went through three of four years of pure torture with Star Trek Enterprise (Scott Bakula – yum!).

    Gotta go to bed…

    Thanks for any help!

    Good Morning Ladies,
    Holy cow you guys were busy last night with the email. I’m gonna have to start checking that from home.

  186. Dani said

    Good morning! I had 118 emails this morning. Yikes!
    Maddie Mo-A good friend will bail you out of jail. A best friend will be sitting next to you saying we had a hell of a time.
    In response to the name game on email-I was born Danielle Marie Gagnon. I would have prefered to be something more fantastical like akin to fairies or elves. I am partial to Bryony. What do ya’ll think?

  187. Dani said

    lwildstar-I am so sorry. I left the printed copy of your story at home. I will send it back to you tonight. I will make a point of going to Kelly’s or my sister’s to do it.

  188. DebS said

    Good morning ladies! Busy, busy, busy here in my world. How about you all?

  189. Cree said

    The cable guy just left and now I think my modem is fixed! WooHoo! He said there was too much power coming from the cable line and it was too much info for my modem to handle, so he decreased the power. I am so glad he figured out what the problem was. It was such a pain getting kicked offline every few minutes!

    Rifkind: Thanks for letting everyone know I wasn’t on the email list. Everyone has been talking about having 100’s of emails everyday, but have only gotten about 10 or so each day and feel like I have missed some stuff.

    Can everyone please make sure I am on your email list? I hate feeling left out, even though I know it was not intentional! My email is Thanks!

  190. Cree said

    That should have been, I have only gotten about 10 or so a day

  191. Madonna said

    Good morning everyone

    Busy day here for me.

    Cree you’re already on email list.

  192. Maddie Mo said

    Dani, You are SO right about that one. No need for bail today though. Apparently he saw the error of his ways. It was more his attitude and tone yesterday than what he actually said to me. Brought me home some Gerbra Daisy’s ( which are my favorite) and apologized. I guess I’ll keep him a little longer.

  193. Dani said

    Well if you ever need help we are here. ๐Ÿ˜›

  194. Maddie Mo said

    Besides I have to keep him around long enough to get another little one that looks just like that one I have.

  195. DIZEY1 said

    Prtfvr, you know me waaay too well. You know us old chix cain’t spell so well ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I wishI had that little smiley devil but the wink is all I got for ya’

    Cree so sorry I’ll both emails to make sure I’ve got them correct.

    Dani hey I had 135 of those suckers this morning, that’s why it took so long to get here.

    **Z** I don’t have a Kohl’s here but they advertise on TV all the time I wish we did. Oh and I’m in line for the chains, the Blow Henry Pops ( a Suckulant Strawberry and a Chocolate Dream ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) oooohhhhweeeeee

  196. DIZEY1 said

    Good morning to the rest of my flock ! Himmie hee-hawing ??? Are you talkin’ ta me?? Making fun eh?? I like the way I spelled that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  197. Himmiefan said

    Dizey – I am sooo mature that I just had to point that out to the world. ๐Ÿ™‚

  198. Anzia said

    Himmie- Got it and shot one back.

    “Copulation”… umm…Diz…

    Okay, so my day has the great possibility of sucking horribly (not in the Henry-I’m-tingly-all-over-’cause-of-the-promise-of-fun-things-to-come kind of way). I get to spend my day cleaning. Which, in a normal house, wouldn’t be so bad. BUT, in my aunt & uncle’s house…it could’ve been one of Hercules’ feats! *loooooooooong sigh* No one cleans but me (which I guess is kinda okay ’cause they let me stay w/o paying rent or anything) but my cousin Sean, instead of helping clean, will actually make things dirtier and such while I’m trying to get things done. It’s definitely a work of patience.

    The only good thing is if I get everything done (livingroom, rec room, kitchen, bathroom & hallways) before my aunt wakes up then we can go “shopping”! (i can’t actually buy anything but it’s fun to look.) So, with that said. I’m going to be gone all day guys.

    Have fun. I left the goodies i brought for you last night (chains & pops) in their box in the corner. Enjoy. HUGS guys!

  199. DIZEY1 said

    Himmie I’m sitting here and re reading what I wrote and it just hit me what I spelled, I’m sitting at my desk laughing out loud all by myself. Can I say I must be longing more than I thought, sorry ya’ll you don’t have to be a part of the copulation ๐Ÿ˜€ OMG what an ASS I am. ROTFLMAO ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  200. Himmiefan said

    No, no, not an ass!! But, it was funny! ๐Ÿ™‚

  201. Good Morning Ladies,

    You tickle me so! You are so funny!

    Hen’s room worked for once yesterday, but I was the only one in the house :>(

    I noted Laurel didn’t say it, so I’m just going to blurt it out since you’re such a major support group for her sigh. . .

    Yesterday, last night, Her Grandma died. . .expected. . but still so hard, especially on her mom. So, Laurel has the crappy body week or month. . . geez, now this and tomorrow we were all going to get together for Father-in-law’s birthday (he died in April) so this is the first (Getting through firsts like father’s day, birthdays etcs. are so tough) Such a heart ache. . .

  202. Anzia said

    So, we’re all passing around birthday weed and are copulating… what kind of family are we!? ^_^

    okay, now I’m leaving…

    Hey Moonbeam. Thanks for letting us know. Poor thing. Please give her our love.

  204. I’ll take a wee bit of both, thank you very much! It sounds like quite the adventure!

  205. DIZEY1 said

    Moonbeam please let her know how sorry I am. We all know how hard a loss is and let me know if I can do anything for ya’ll. Firsts are so hard and sometimes crying together is cathartic(sp) hope I didn’t mis splell that one, I’d hate to say something vulgar to you at such a hard time.

    XOXOXOXOXOXOX Laurel, and Moonbeam Love Ya’ll


  206. Himmiefan said

    Hey Moonbeam. Please let your family know that we’re all thinking about them as they celebrate your father-in-law’s birthday. I think a good celebration of his life will help everyone.

  207. Thanks you!

    It would be nice to have a spell check~except for the humor factor that it offers us. It gives us such play!

  208. Maddie Mo said

    Laurel- So sorry for you lost.

  209. Dani said

    Moonbeam-Give her my love. Tell her I am so sorry to here that. It was expected with my grandfather but it still hits you so hard in the gut you feel like you will never recover. We were expecting it for years.

  210. Dani said

    Hear that I mean.

  211. Madonna said

    Please send Laurel my love and sympathies and tell her that we are here for her.

  212. DIZEY1 said

    I figured we could all use a little pick me up so I’ve selected a few tidbits to perk up our day ๐Ÿ˜€


    Just a few morsels to sink your teeth into ๐Ÿ˜‰

  213. DIZEY1 said

    Ooops sorry this one didn’t do right

    But he’s worth the wait

  214. Himmiefan, Dizey1 ~ Thank you both, I appreciate it! I’ll be buying a box of his favorite Sees candies today so we’ll indulge tomorrow. You know how dad’s can be (mine was buy him socks, boxers and lime after shave) Father-in-law, Sees candy (easier to celebrate ~ unless we all walk around in boxers :>)

  215. DIZEY1 said

    Moonbeam I love Sees candies we were sent some from a manufacturer he had great taste. Fabulous candy, and the boxers would be a tribute ๐Ÿ™‚

  216. Dani said

    One of the resident chefs made lunch for us all. Pork tenderloin and gravy, stuffing, and peas. I wonder if there will be dessert. See how dangerous it is to work here.

  217. DIZEY1 said

    Dani darn it you had pulle pork the other day and now tenderloin , and stuffing so not fair. I think I’ll go a friggin salad from Arbys or something funky like that. You lucky girl.

  218. DebS said

    Give Laurel my love. She and her family are in my prayers.

  219. DIZEY1 said

    Man it was Pulled pork and go GET a salad, besides not being able to spell or what conjugate a sentence now (wrong term probably)

  220. Dani~ Where the heck are you? I want some of that food too! It sounds sooooo yummy! Fine, I’ll just mosey into the kitchen for my coffee & ??? sure not Pork tenderloin

    Thanks DebS (I used to use that Debs handle a bunch on email etc. :>)

  221. Dani said

    If you can get to South Windsor CT I will save you a plate.

  222. Dani said

    To be honest the pulled pork was much better, juicy and barbecuey. It is still ok.

  223. Dani said

    The onions in the stuffing aren’t fully rehydrated. That is kinda gross.

  224. It’ll probably get a tad cold since I’m in Eugene, OR. I’m still up eating it at this time of day, however. (might skip the salad ~ too healthy & green @ 9:00 in morn.)

  225. Himmiefan said

    Geesh. I have half an egg salad sandwich.

  226. Dani said

    A salad for breakfast just sounds wrong unless it is a fruit salad.

  227. Madonna said

    I have a Healthy Choice French Bread Pizza for lunch.

  228. Margaret said

    Moonbeam: Pls. tell Laurel our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

  229. Dani said

    I am currently reading a great series of books. They are written by Nora Roberts, Three Sisters Island Trilogy. The books are Dance Upon The Air, Heaven and Earth, and Face The Fire. They are kinda about witches and the choices they make. There isn’t to much soft porn in it either. Just the right amount of it.

  230. Yeah, I spent a week or so on an egg farm with a family in Pennsylvania one summer and they had a full dinner every morning before 6:00 A.M. (salad, rolls the whole deal ~ I could hardly bear to look at it) In the evening, they had breakfast. (light cereal etc.)

  231. Dani said

    Is that the way most farmers eat? I never knew that. Seems really wierd.

  232. Himmiefan said

    Moonbeam – how bizarre! I’m sure they needed the calories of a big meal, but dinner food?

  233. lwildstar said

    Dani said “lwildstar-I am so sorry. I left the printed copy of your story at home. I will send it back to you tonight. I will make a point of going to Kellyโ€™s or my sisterโ€™s to do it.”
    Thanks Dani – no biggie – if I get it over the weekend I can maybe post it Sunday night or Monday night – depending on how mauch “fixing” I have to do. I did go through last night and fix all the caps that I missed….

    Ok so the typo cake gets passed on to…Dizey! whatch out for the surprise filling!
    hey we may be a strange little family (birthday weed, studing and copulating) but boy are we havin fun!

    Moonbeam ((((HUGS)))) to Laurel

    another day closer!@ to October!

    ok I’m going to go do some writing and I’ll check in with ya’ll later!

  234. Maddie Mo said

    I read something in a magazine once about a family that inverted their meals and ate dinner for breakfast and hd breakfast for dinner. Apparently it is a really good way to lose weight because you are eating your big meal so early in the day you burn off all those calories instead of going to bed before you have used them all up.

  235. I don’t think so. This was a Menanite family and the system worked for them, but it still makes me shudder when I think of it and the meat called scrapple. The whole egg farming business was an experience too.

  236. Dani said

    I should try that. If I was a morning person I could get up and do that but I’m not so, oh well.

  237. I’ve got to get myself busy. . .see you later

  238. vicki said

    hey all

    did you see the lifetime site/??? They have put BT on the first page when you click on the shows icon. WHooo Hooo. the main page for BT is better but they still didnt have the links hooked up when I checked it last night.Oh well..I guess it is taking htem longer than they thoguht . Still it looks nice..

    anyway…I am trying to get things done..I have another singing gig tonight…got to Diva Up later…now I am just mommy to two kids who want fruit….LOL see yall later

  239. Madonna said

    Hi girls!

    I hope you all are having a good morning/afternoon. I have to say I’m not. I think my boss is trying to kill me. I’m senior designer here and I’m the one she trusts the most so basically every piece of crap ad that comes through the door gets passed my way. I mean ANYTHING that looks evenly remotely challenging. So that means that my fellow co-workers will finish up their work probably within the hour and head out while I’m still stuck here the rest of the day. Many companies reward you for doing good work right? A bonus, an extra raise, something….. Not here, here all I get is more work. OK sorry for my RANT but I had to get that out of me.

  240. Himmiefan said

    Madonna – have you talked to your boss about it?

  241. Dani said

    I have problems here with co-workers and stuff and talk to my boss about it and nothing changes. I have been told they are on a higher level than I am and plus the person I have the most problems with is pretty much the boss’s best friend.

  242. Madonna said

    I have talked to my boss about it. She doesn’t care. She thinks she is doing what needs to be done. My question to her is always the same. If she doesn’t trust my fellow employees to do their work well, then why are they still here? Keep in mind this is a woman who when I first started here had us sitting in white plastic lawn chairs 12-14 hrs a day for 6 mos. because she was too lazy to order office chairs

  243. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna sorry , I hate that, they do that to me also oh see Beth she’s got all the info. I’m like pick up a book and read it just like I did man. Yeah it’s bad when you’re anal like me and always want to be the best at everything , it’ll come back and bite ya’. Well think of hunky swaggering sexy Henry and that should put a smile on your pretty face ๐Ÿ˜‰

  244. lwildstar said

    hey I lost the link for the new petition and I can’t find it on the Bloodlines site – wanted to send it to my cousin – HELP!

    Will check back tonight – weather providing – yes they are calling for storms again tonight……


  245. DIZEY1 said

    middle one was this one

  246. DIZEY1 said

    Wildstar I WISH we’d get rain man I am so jealous ,and it’s supposed to be even hotter then next couple of days brutal!

    Glad you liked the (copulation boo boo) anytime I can bring a smile to someone’s face it’s cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  247. DIZEY1 said

    Oh BTW you should see the BAT money any day finally I know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ sorry it took so long.

  248. Dani said

    What is up with that Madonna? She doesn’t have much respect for herself or others then. It couldn’t have been good for you to sit in lawn chairs with your problems.

  249. Himmiefan said

    Sounds like a job change is called for here.

  250. Dani said

    Can you believe that, Boom, all of a sudden it is 55 degrees today and pouring rain all day. Gotta love New England. That is what the weather is like here all the time. One day it is one thing the next it is the total opposite.

  251. Madonna said

    Yeah Dani, Those lawn chairs hurt like hell. Every morning I left, and I say morning because our workdays were 9am to 1-3am in those days, my legs were so swollen I thought they would burst. My boss is the type of person who believes that since she holds a position of power she can do anything with her time and make others do whatever she wishes.

  252. Dani said

    9 am to 3 am?! That is plain ridiculous. I can’t stand people that use there power in the wrong ways.

  253. DIZEY1 said

    See ya’ll after lunch ๐Ÿ˜€

  254. Madonna said

    I would find another job but there isn’t much demand for designers in Cincinnati right now and quite frankly it’s all I know.

    My longest day with this company was from 8am – 5am and I had to be back at work again at 9am.

  255. Dani said

    The boss is not here and the boss’s spy just left. Woohoo! It is goof off time.

  256. Dani said

    I thought that was illegal. What did your breaks look like?

  257. Madonna said

    On a day like that…. 1 hr lunch 3 15 min breaks.

  258. Dani said

    I think you should have gotten more than that. Flash Gordon starts tonight 9:00 SciFi. I am going to check it out. Does anyone else plan to show Coreen some support?

  259. Dani said

    Who knows what day and time Ghost Hunters is on? I never see it because I can never remember.

  260. Maddie Mo said

    Madonna- OMG that is insane. Your boss is crazy.

    Dani- I was thinking about checking out Flash tonight. but I’m a little sad about it cause I know that means even if we get more BT she won’t be on it.

  261. Margaret said

    Dizey: What are you talking about the photo of Henry being the middle one? Did I miss a conversation again?

  262. Maddie Mo said

    Dani- looks like Ghost Hunters is on on Wed nights, but it says on the website ” more new episodes coming soon”

  263. Dani said

    Yeah I know but if Flash Gordon is really crappy she has all the chances to come back and if it does good then good for her. And it isn’t if we get more BT it is when.

  264. Dani said

    I saw the “new episodes coming soon” but I didn’t see when it was on and what time.

  265. Maddie Mo said

    I am just going by there What’s new section. All the episodes listed there appear to have aired on Wed.

  266. Maddie Mo said

    that was supposed to me their not there.

  267. Margaret said

    (FIRST POST IS MINE, SECOND ONE IS TANYA’S RESPONSE). So I guess we need to keep it up with the post cards.

    Tanya: So how do you read this: They went from doubling up episodes on a Saturday night for 5 weeks to running 1 episode for 10 weeks on a Friday Night. I’m not sure how to read that. I’m serious considering taking a vacation on the post cards until it starts back up in October. They still haven’t committed to additional episodes past the original 22. Have you heard anything different?

    Friday night has traditionally been a dead night for television so I’m, personally, not reading it as a good thing. However, I’m new at this and I could be completely wrong. It is, after all, the same slot that BSG held so successfully over on SciFi.

    And I still haven’t heard about new eps… sigh.

  268. jpbaci1 said


  269. DebS said

    Dani-I love those Nora Roberts books. She has several of there “supernatural” trilogys that are good. There is one that has a vampire in it.

    Madonna-sucks about work. My job environment isn’t the best right now either…so I feel your pain. You live in Cincinnati, huh? I am from Northern Indiana, but now live in SC. So, I pass through Cincinnati on my way home all the time.

  270. Dani said

    DebS-Do you know what her other supernatural trilogies are? I am going to Borders tonight. I might pick up a few.

  271. Madonna said

    Look for Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series. Lots of stuff about Druids and the Fae. They’re awesome. She is the only author I will buy in hardcover.

    I work in downtown Cincy, but I live in No. Kentucky

  272. DebS said

    Dani-Here are a few of my faves.

    The Circle Trilogy:
    Morrigan’s Cross, Dance of the Gods, Valley of Silence (This is the one with the vampire. It has an interesting take on the vampire.

    In The Garden Trilogy: Blue Dahlia, Black Rose, Red Lily (This one involves a ghost)

    KEY TRILOGY: Key of Light, Key of Knowledge , Key of Valor
    (I can’t remember what the supernatural element is of this one…but I think it does have one.)

    THE IRISH TRILOGY: Jewels of the Sun, Tears of the Moon, and Heart of the Sea (I love this one because it is set in Ireland)

  273. DebS said

    Madonna- You don’t live in Florence by any chance do you? I love passing through Florence because their water tower says “Florence Ya’ll”. I love it!!!

  274. msgypsy said

    Sigh! The only Nora Roberts I’ve liked so far is her Eve Dallas series when she writes as JD Robb. But I just discovered this wonderful downloadable e-books site from my library and have put in holds for a couple of her occult style books a try as audio books. I’ve found that some authors I don’t care for are actually really good if I’m listening rather than reading.

    I heard an analysis of why “Dresden Files” was cancelled that makes sense and relates back to what happened to “Firefly.” A network that has had a monster hit (BSG for SciFi and “X Files” for Fox) isn’t going to be as patient in allowing shows that ought to have the same audience as the hit to settle in. If the show doesn’t take off right away and become an international phenom or whatever, they’re not going to be impressed and are likely to have a knee-jerk cancellation. Sadly, this might affect “Blood Ties,” although I doubt Lifetime has had anything resembling a monster hit ever.

    (BTW, with Fox I think the fact that “Space Above and Beyond” didn’t become a mega hit really made them skittish around “Firefly” several years later. I can’t come up with any reason for SciFi to be a bunch of buttheads about “Dresden Files” but what do I know?)

    As for “Blood Ties,” hearing nothing is better than hearing a negative. Friday isn’t as much a dead night as Saturday is. After all, “Doctor Who” is as big a hit as SciFi could ask for without it being BSG. I race home from rehearsal to catch the second showing, and I think it’s easier for most folks to stay in and watch tv on Friday night than it is on Saturday night. And LOTS of people stay up extra late on Friday night, just because they can. So it’s not that bad a thing.

    Always positive. Always positive. Always positive.

  275. msgypsy said

    Hey, Madonna! My mom is in an assisted living facility somewhere outside of Cincy and my sister lives in Dayton. My nephew lives in Louisville. At some point I need to visit the lot of them. Maybe we can meet for coffee or lunch or something.

  276. Madonna said

    I live in Independence about 10 minutes from Florence. Used to live in Newport.

    Ms. Gypsy, If we can work it out. Sounds good.

  277. Dani said

    DebS-I forgot about the Circle Trilogy. The director of religious education at my church, of all people, lent Morrigan’s Cross to me. She said it was very good and she was right. I have been meaning to get the others to read.

  278. msgypsy said

    Well, blog-gals, I have to get back to work now. But I wanted to let you know that, after considerable thought and research, weighing the options and analyzing the possible outcomes, throwing the I-Ching and consulting the Tarot and the spirits and reading the entrails of a particularly ripe tomato, I have chosen a bat-name for the fellow up above.

    Prtfvr wins (did anyone doubt it) with the moniker Hungry Fitzbat. I think I’ll call him Fitz for short. Hung is just … wrong.

  279. DebS said

    I am a big Nora Robert’s fan..across the board. There are very few books of hers I haven’t read. My mom is a huge fan as well, and so we are always trading her books.

  280. Dani said

    Hey maybe Kyle is well “hung”. Who knows? Sorry I didn’t mean to say that out loud.

  281. DIZEY1 said

    Gypsy he could be. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like Fitz though very cool for the dude ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Leave it to prtfvr, to come up with the whitty Title ๐Ÿ™‚

  282. rifkind said

    I didn’t realize that the bat was anatomically correct….

  283. Madonna said

    Here is the website for Karen Moning. You should be able to find the correct reading order here. She has two different series. The Highlander series and the current one is the Fever series. Take my advice and read the Highlander series first it ties into the other one. The first one I read was Kiss Of The Highlander. It is still my favorite book and what got me into paranormal romances.

    If you look on the last thread I actually posted a link showing that water tower.

  284. msgypsy said

    Uh, Dani, were you using your out-of-my-head voice there?

  285. msgypsy said

    I just changed the moderation standard for comments so that up to five links will be okay. More than five and you’ll have to wait for Tango or me to approve the post. This should save some folks some heartburn. (The default turned out to be two and for us that’s just too few!)

  286. Dani said

    Yes my out-of-my-head voice. That’s right.

  287. Dani said

    *hangs head in shame* Sometimes my head gets away from me.

  288. msgypsy said

    The bat may be anatomically correct. I’ve never seen the underside of a bat up close. For all I know, real bats have large labels that say Ikea and Made In Vietnam in place of genitalia… LOL!

  289. DIZEY1 said

    Aw poor dude no jewels, family or otherwise, made in Vietnam don’t Americans make anything anymore??

  290. …. Oh my gods… The mental image that you just gave my Gypsy…. I’ll never look at a man the same way again.

  291. msgypsy said

    Aw, Lady A, don’t think of it as a strangely made man. Think of it as a cutely made bat.

    And now I REALLY have to get back to work.

  292. Dani said

    You know speaking of not being made in America, all the recalls of the crap made in China is getting out of control. It started with the dog food, then toothpaste, followed by Fisher Price Sesame Street and Dora and Diego toys, now there is a recall on tires made in China. I think China should just quit now. All there electronic stuff they are known for will be next. The whole friggin world will hate them.

  293. DIZEY1 said

    Oh Margaret the pic’s I posted earlier the middle one didn’t post properly so I re posted it below the original. Nothing spectacular. And I too don’t think the Friday night thing is bad, I think like Gypsy said that most people are home on Friday and may be out on Saturday’s. I know I generally am home after a long work day and we can stay up late and chat about it after I think that would be cool.

  294. Himmiefan said

    55 degrees?????!!!! It’s 155 here!!

    Space Above and Beyond was yet another show that had great potential, but…. sigh.

    Please congratulate Fitz on joining our group. ๐Ÿ™‚

  295. Himmiefan said

    Oh yeah, I really do think that TPTB are taking the whole taping and DVR into account, so I don’t think that 11:00pm is as bad as it used to be.

    Now, is Comcast on Demand the same thing as DVR? I’m techno challenged!! Anyway, I’m sure they’re looking at how many times BT’s been accessed on Comcast on Demand.

  296. Dani said

    Secretly he is going to be Hung to me.

  297. DIZEY1 said

    Dani and there’s a lot of Chinese people there too. Most of which are making evidentally shody products. What time is Flash coming on? I saw a preview I think last week and saw Gina scream Flash’s name. Yeah I’m gonna support her. I’ll check it out.

  298. Dani said

    Hey guys I changed my pic. Who knows what show this is from?

  299. DIZEY1 said

    I’ve got a Vampire . Necrodrome

  300. Dani said

    9 PM tonight

  301. DIZEY1 said


  302. Madonna said


  303. Dani said

    I can’t stump you can I?

  304. DIZEY1 said

    Baby I’ve watched everything he’s in multiple times , I can do the damn dialog. I need some new stuff.

  305. Madonna said

    Addicts know their stuff. What can we say?

  306. Dani said

    I have to but I tried to got something very different that no one has used as their pic.

  307. Madonna said

    Alright Dizey,
    Are we thinking with the same brain here?

  308. DebS said

    I am off to do some unpacking. A friend is bringing her couch by tomorrow (I am babysitting it for a year, cause she can’t use it this year), so I have to have at least half of my crap put away. See you all later!!

  309. Margaret said

    Blood Price? Not sure whether its 1 or 2 though. He’s telling Vicki about hell coming to earth.

  310. Margaret said

    Are you sure its Necadrome?

  311. Dani said

    Have fun DebS. Don’t wear yourself out.
    Yes himmiefan 55 and very rainy. It is so cold I had to wear my hoodie this morning.

  312. DIZEY1 said

    Madonna could be although after lunch it’s starting to slow down a litlle, how about you?

  313. Dani said

    Yes it was Necrodrome when Vicki should have said “Oh yeah? I’ve got a vampire. Hah!”

  314. Madonna said

    It’s the part where they break up the cage match and Vicki should have said… I have a vampire.

  315. Madonna said

    This brain’s been slow all day.

  316. Margaret said

    Well he must have used that look more than once cause I really believe he looked like that in Blood Price when he was telling Vicki about hell coming to earth. Darn, now I have to watch both of them again. Like I needed an excuse.

    What do you all think about continuing the post cards considering what Tanya said?

  317. Dani said

    Ok guys the time has come for me to scat. I will talk at ya’ll tonight. Ciao!

  318. Madonna said

    Like I said yesterday. I think continuing the postcards is a given. Lifetime needs to know that interest hasn’t waned.

  319. you guys are really chatty this afternoon…

    And I just realized that I am missing an entire day. I woke up this morning convinced it was Thursday.

    Oh hell!

  320. Madonna said

    Bye Dani!

  321. Madonna said

    Lady A,
    It’s definitely Friday. My whole body’s feeling it.

  322. DIZEY1 said

    Oh Dani I called my mom when I went to the bank and told of your cool weather she and I are very jealous. She’s not a sun worshiper to begin with but this heat wave is so brutal the last few days , we’re wilting big time. OMG to have to wear a jacket now …………..ahhhhhhhh. Bring on the fall, winter whatever gets this place cooled down.

  323. Take care Dani!

  324. DIZEY1 said

    Ciao! Dani

  325. Dani said

    Hey ya’ll are welcome to visit me. Tomorrow it will be right back up in the 80’s but I think the humidity will be down still. I am really leaving now.

  326. But it doesn’t feel like a Friday!! *whines*

    Sorry… I still want to know where that missing day went!

  327. For the first time in months my honey and I finally got to go out on a date night.

    We went to see Transformers and went to dinner. It was very refreshing because we have been trapped in the house together and we were literally seconds away from tearing each others throats out.

    I think that is where my extra day went, but I’m not sure. Oh well.

  328. Himmiefan said

    LA – I sure hope it’s Friday because I refuse to come to work tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚

  329. DIZEY1 said

    Lady A twilight zone huh??

    Madonna, Margaret I’m gonna finish off this pack of 100 just like I was and I’ll keep on sending them until they squeal like pigs ๐Ÿ˜‰ I need to go buy another red sharpie though it’s almost dry.

    Lady A I’ll get that package packed up tonight and will send off tomorrow, I’ll put all pertinent information in the box for you.

  330. Himmiefan said

    Oh, for those of you interested in the Dune series (remember, I’m a girl geek at heart), the last book in the series is out now. Just got my copy today (Borders has it 30% off). Also, if you’re looking for some good TV, the second season of Rome is finally out. Gotta go to Blockbuster tonight to see if Disc 2 is in.

  331. prtfvr said

    Ok. Walked into work today, turn on the old PC and guess what? Blue screen, white letters, FATAL ERROR!! So I’ve been working on a budget by hand while trying to fix this damn computer – AGAIN! So I’m taking a break by checking out what’s been going on. My oh my, did no one work today? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyhow, so many messages and IMs. I’m just going to address the one’s that stuck out at me, so to speak.

    1. Laurel – I’m so sorry for your loss! As you probably know by now, we’re all here for you.

    2. Hungry Fitzbat won? NO SHIT?! That was a goof. Was everyone else’s THAT horrible?

    Regarding bat…doobies – it’s quite evident whether it’s a mail or female. Yes, I know this for a fact. ๐Ÿ™‚ Could you all quit obsessing over Fitzy’s jewels though? He’s getting kinda antsy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    3. Seeing a lot of people’s names and the states where they live. I’m bossy – you all know this so ignore – as I know you do – if uninterested.

    I think we’ve all gotten really comfortable sharing so much personal information with each other through the marathon emails that we’re forgetting that gypsy’s is a public site. Please don’t give out any more identifying info unless you crave the attention. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I worry, ok? Don’t want anyone harassing my peeps!

    4. Chery and the hens barrage: I really think that what your seeing is everyone’s email going back and forth. If you’re getting something like 100 or more emails a day, I’m guessing that’s it. We can take you out of the routing table if you’d like. We’re kinda verbose so I can completely understand you wanting us to knock it off.

    Just in case though, forward one of the emails to me on I’m pretty sure it’s just our chatty emails though. God, I hope so or me and gypsy won’t be allowed any anyone’s house when there’s crue dete’ (sp) around!

  332. Thanks!! I’ve already had to hide the doggy toy from my nephew. He seems to think that any stuffed toy that comes in the house is his. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  333. Chery said

    No I am not getting that many I just did not know that was how the routing worked.
    Thanks, will let you know………… just seemed kind of overwhelming.
    I guess I will jump right into the conversation when I feel like it LOL

  334. rifkind said

    Check out your email program for FILTERS.
    That way , you can shuffle off the messages into their own mail folder.. and read them when you get a chance.
    I had to do that because I can’t read my Yahoo! mail at work.. and 135 was soooo many in my IN box.
    Good Luck!

  335. prtfvr said

    Oh rifkind, WAH! “I’m SO popular I had to filter my email! WAH!” ๐Ÿ˜‰

  336. prtfvr said

    Ok Chery, was that a request that we remove you from the distribution list? Annalise already yelled at us once about it. Even though she’s the one who gave us two email addresses in the first place. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    See what happens when you want to know what’s going on constantly? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  337. rifkind said

    I just hate being so far behind… so much to read, so little time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  338. It took me about an hour to catch up on the emails and the blog, so it wasn’t too bad. I could see where it would be harder to catch up while at work.

  339. chat room anyone?

  340. Margaret said

    Just about the time you think you’re out and they suck you back in……….yes, I’ll continue doing the post cards until they squeal like little piggys as much as I wanted to stop I ain’t saying die yet.

  341. Maddie Mo said

    Have a good weekend everybody. Time to go home!!!!!

  342. Bye Maddie Mo!

  343. Chery said

    Thanks Margaret for posting Tanya’s answer.

    I think she is right, it is great that Life Time is extending the life of the last 10 episodes of season one. But! until we know we should continue the campaign.
    At least that is my 2 cents worth.

  344. Thanks everyone who stopped by the chat this afternoon! I really appreciated the company.

    I’m taking off for the afternoon but I will try to be back this evening.

    Take care everyone!

  345. Anzia said


    “squeel like little piggies” – Okay, mental image share time! I totally saw a bunch of piglets running around in suits and skirts, etc. working. Until a big pile of paper fell on one of ’em. Not so funny if you don’t get the audio but… well…

    Fitz v. Hung… OMG! I want a bat named Hung! ^_^ Maybe they should be added to the BT paraphenalia we’ve been “inventing” all along!

    Laurel- I’m sorry honey. (((HUGS)))

    Madonna- you must have one of the evilest bosses in the world! wow…you have much more patience than me. I’d be going nuts!

  346. lwildstar said

    DIZEY1 – Was this for me?
    “Oh BTW you should see the BAT money any day finally I know sorry it took so long.”

    Margaret said “yes, Iโ€™ll continue doing the post cards until they squeal like little piggys as much as I wanted to stop I ainโ€™t saying die yet.” – I wish I could keep it up – I am going to have to curtail the post cards for awhile – not as much disposible income coming in right now – I was using the jewelry money and thats just not there right now …pouts…. but I will try to send something even if its only one card everyday. I emailed the list of sponsors to work so now at lunch I can send out little thank yous to them.

    Well I am off to see what I can forage for dinner – I think I’m down to ramin noodles, tuna, and dried apricots……I really need to go grocery shopping!

    Did anyone else have problems getting on the Lifetime site today? I kept getting kicked off…..

    I have a tv down here in the dungeon with the computer so I can watch Flash -see how Ginas doing – so, I’ll check back before bed – talk at you later.

  347. DIZEY1 said

    Wildstar yes my dawlin’ that was for you for my twin bats ,you should rec’v it any day. I’m going to grab grub also, mom cooked Italian sausage in vodka sauce over ditalini (sp). may I say YUMMMMM is the order of the day.

    Oh before I leave **Z** have you seen the previews for “Becoming Jane” are you the Jane Austin fan. It looks good and I so love period pieces. Check back in a few. Hey maybe one of my Wildstar bats can be HUNG ๐Ÿ˜‰ He may be for all I know ๐Ÿ˜€

  348. Chery said


    No please I wish to remain and contribute to the conversation……..
    Don’t mind me, my head is in the clouds, I have to go back to school next week I am at a new schoool so lotsa pressure, anxiety………..
    Plus getting lesson plans ready…………..
    No you guys are great, so glad we all met through BT.

  349. jpbaci1 said

    flash comes on at 9pm inthe new yorkparers gina gets good reviews see you there

  350. Anzia said

    Diz- I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan (i’m not sure i’m THE Jane Austen fan). I heard about it but I haven’t seen the previews. I found a book today though written in 1913. It was the first ever sequel to Jane Austen’s works. It has characters from every one of her books and it’s supposed to look at what happened after they all got married. It’s by Cybil Brinton (or Binton)… so, if you’re a Austenian like I am… just a suggestion. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m going back to the Ren Fair tomorrow (YAY) and meeting up with friends from LU. *is excited* I can’t wait. Sadly, either my dinner hates me or I really am sick (i’ve been denying it for about 4 days). Either way tomorrow may be a very sad day if I don’t feel better soon! I totally expect a million emails and about an hours worth of blog reading to catch up on. ^_^

  351. Bryony said

    I love Jane Austen also. Hi guys. I can’t wait to see Becoming Jane. I loved Sense and Sensibility with Kate Winslet and Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly. I had to get all the books after I saw those movies.

  352. himmiefan said

    Hi Bryone. Um, are you Dani?

    I love Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightly! I thought the previous version with Colin Firth was really good, but this one was even better. Matthew McFadyn – yum!

  353. Bryony said

    Yes I wanted to change it for awhile. I need change often.

  354. Bryony said

    Yes very YUM

  355. Bryony said

    I like experimenting with different names. See what people think of them.

  356. lwildstar said

    well I was going to try and blog while watching Flash – but my brain has gone to mush so I will just go curl up with my pillow and see how Gina did as Dale Arden – I think she has the right attitude.

    Oh I can’t wait til October! My cousin and I are trying to figure out whos house will be hosting the sleep over, mine or hers. I voted for mine – no kids, no husband to inturupt the veiwing!

    Dizey – “hung” nope sorry these little bat guys are nuetral… I have got the strangest pictures in my head!

    and I that note I must tell you – I haven’t been talking to Paul latley – when he is in, he rarely answers my emails – anyway today I sent him “just checking on you” his response was “Tied to my desk” – can I just say my mind went straight to the gutter – I had soooo many things I wanted to send back to him – I decide, ok we’re both at work so I went with the “Oh really?” . I did invite him out to dinner, since he can’t seem to get out during the day for lunch – we’ll see if he “bites” (Oh geezzz more mental images!). Well I think I’ve tip-toed through the gutter enough today.

    Ok off to the tv now!

    night ladies.

  357. Bryony said

    Hey anyone here Margaret and I are in the chat room

  358. Alas, I have tried to join the chat room, but nothing happens after I type hmmm.

  359. Bryony said

    go back

  360. Anzia said

    lwildstar- tip-toe? why tip-toe? Dive in! So much more fun. Besides, the shock wears off once you’ve gone completely under. :=)

    Bryony/Dani & Himmie- I do love Mr. Mcfaydn. So, SOOOO attractive “i love, love, … I love you!” AHH! I do have to confess that I haven’t read Northanger Abbey or Persuasion (have either of you seen The Lake House?). I have, however, seen movies of both. I’ve read almost every sequel to or “re writing’ of P & P that I’ve found.

    Dani- how do you say your new name?

  361. Bryony said

    I loved the Lake House

  362. jpbaci1 said


  363. msgypsy said

    Yeah, Hungry Fitzbat was the only one that made me almost squirt diet cherry RC all over my keyboard.

    I just checked the SciFi schedule and thank goodness everything repeats tonight. Cuz I won’t be getting to Flash until LATE. But I will be a good and loyal girl and stay up to watch it, even though to be honest I hated the movie.

    I’m taking Fitzbat to rehearsal tonight. He may end up part of my costume. The costume I was making suffers from a design flaw. Oh, no, actually, it’s a measurement flaw. You know how you measure twice and cut once? I got that backwards. It’s WAY too small. So I had to do something quick. Thank heaven for fabric stashes! I have a partially finished vest that more or less matches one of my skirts and with a black shirt underneath I should be fine. But I’m so disappointed because the trim for the one I WAS making is $20 a yard and I had it put on just perfectly.

    Laurel, I’m sorry to hear about your loss. It’s never easy, no matter how much warning you get. I’ll give you a hug when I see you. (Tuesday, right?)

    Okay, apropos of none of that. You know how I often say that I lived in Saskatchewan of which we will not speak? Well, I say that because I was 12 and was at that awkward stage where being different was BAD. And, there I was, a US citizen living in Canada, during a war that no one around me thought was good, a Jewish kid in an almost exclusively Protestant city, an east coast intellectual in the middle of God’s country prairie … you get the idea, right? An entire province suffers due to my awkward adolescence stage. Well, after reading Denis McGrath’s blog turned me on to “Little Mosque on the Prairie,” I read a bit about a show it’s been compared to, called “Corner Gas.” And I have no compunctions about downloading Canadian shows from suspect sites because I’m not stealing anything from anyone. There is no legal way for me to see those shows. Anyhow, between “Little Mosque on the Prairie” (which is a laugh riot and proves that the laugh track is highly overrated) and “Corner Gas” (ditto) I think the healing has begun. I’m starting to remember things about Saskatchewan that don’t make me want to hurl things at the wall. Alberta, otoh, still has some ‘splainin’ to do, though. (Okay, I forgave Alberta years ago when I found out that’s where Nathan Fillion is from. He’s my honey. Captain Mal can have me anywhere, anyhow, anytime he wants. TMI?)

    Speaking of illegal downloads, there’s a song entitled “Truck Driving Vampire” that makes me giggle uncontrollably and I found it at I don’t think the one song download is illegal but anyone who feels uncomfortable about it can always delete it after one hearing. I can’t imagine Michael Longcor would object, however, to the publicity. (He does a lot of SCA stuff and I think he’s great.)

    Well, if I don’t shower RIGHT NOW I’ll miss rehearsal. Later, blog-kin!

    Oh, I so totally agree Ms Gypsy. Nathan Fillion – oh baby, baby!!

It started with the dog food, then toothpaste… I think China should just quit now. All there electronic stuff they are known for will be next. The whole friggin world will hate them.

    China wants to be the first to set up shop on the moon. They’ve let everyone else work out the kinks in the system, so they could create things cheaper and thinner and probably more prone to breaking, etc.. (after hearing all the news about their latest and greatest products).

    They’ve been accused of stealing info, and I know of a company who sold a machine to China to make a 50 cent item. The company doing the selling only received one order. They smelled something strange right there, and figured the people on the other end would take the machine apart and put it back together again, and make their own replicas. Sure enough, the company never heard back from the Chinese merchants ever again.. they got more suspicious because that tiny action merely reinforced their worst fears (loss of business going to some other place, for cheaper rates).

    It’s not your normal fairytail!

  379. AlisaSG said

    well, speaking of Flash.. and Gina without much make-up on, etc. (except for that do-over in Ming’s special quarters).
    Preliminary (viewer fan) reviews came in – about 90% in favor to giving it a try, or thought it was better than they expected. (Gateworld is a great temperature gauge – sometimes..) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I wanted to see Karen Cliche. I forgot she was in it, too!
    she’s so NOT a cliche! ๐Ÿ˜›

    The Keira Knightly Pride and Prejudice is good…but the A&E version with Colin Firth is the BEsT EVER!!! It is sooooo amazing..and Colin is soo HOT…

    Dizy..I am a HUGE! Jane Austen freak. I woudl like to see the new “Becoming Jane”” just so I can, but is has no basis in historical fact. Jane never married, she was engaged for aobut 12 hours..A young man of 21 years proposed and she was 28. She said yes that night adn then broke it off the next morning. It was never quite explained why she broke it off or why she even said yes. I sound like a tour guide…I will stop…LOL

    Kaiser Sose…

  385. Anzia said

    Vicki- SORRY! I swear I didn’t just up and leave you. I got kicked out and it wouldn’t let me back in. But, i need to go to bed anyway. I’ll be around tomorrow night. Everyone have a great SATURDAY

    So now that some of you have had a chance to see Flash what do you think?

  389. Anzia said

    Vicki- I knew that, I knew that! i’m such a dork! I did a huge paper on ms. austen in HS. Have you seen Mansfield Park? Alessandro Nivola (*purrs*)? I ask ’cause they intertwine a bit of Jane’s biography into Fanny’s story. They even have quotes from her juvinalia (spelling SUCKS!)

    okay, just wanted to say that before I forgot and before I left this morning. SO, like I said last night. Everyone have a good saturday!

  392. Chery said

    About Flash Gordon. I tuned in last night to Gina if nothing else. I was bored after about 5 minutes and could not watch the whole thing.

    This show is an example of what Bloot Ties is not. Flash Gordan appears to have been thrown together fast to make a cheap buck frankly and it shows. The script was yuk, and except for Gina who we know is a good actress, the rest did not impress me.

    That is why Blood Ties is so appealing to me. The care and passion put into the production of Blood Ties stands way above all of the other supernatural shows out there……………..

  393. msgypsy said

    My quick (meeting across town in an hour) take on Flash Gordon…

    Not so much a good show. Actors did what they could with a lackluster script. Gina’s kinda cute in mundane-wear, but beyond that … is it wrong that I was hoping Ming would win?

    One thing that might be a spoiler if I don’t work it just right: How many of you figured out where the item everyone was looking for was once you heard it pronounced correctly? I got it on the second time someone named it. As for guessing what it is, that didn’t take much thought although there were always other possibilities (like a hyper-nuclear weapon, which doesn’t exist but it sure sounds science fiction-y, doesn’t it? Kind of like that whole show. It just SOUNDS science fiction-y. Doesn’t actually deliver.)

    Off to my event planning meeting. (I suddenly got busy. WHY WHY WHY????) I’ll be back later today.

  394. msgypsy said

    An interesting review of Flash that doesn’t mention Gina anywhere.

  395. prtfvr said

    A&E’s Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle (her mom is Aunt Mae in the Spiderman movies) is the one and only genuine version of that book to me! I have a set of the dvds at work AND at home so I can watch it either place.

    Oh, Colin Firth…..drool….

  396. DIZEY1 said


    Colin Firth is he my guy from “What a girl wants” and “Bridget Jones’ Diary”, he also did “Nanny McPhee” too. I like him alot, he’s good at comedy and serious stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

  397. AlisaSG said

    >> An interesting review of Flash that doesnโ€™t mention Gina anywhere.

    that’s funny.. the article is about FLASH GORDON, but the author gave DOCTOR WHO better ratings on the likable score..

    plus, I noticed the author of the article also liked seeing Karen Cliche, too.. (I wonders if that author was reading my previous note further above about Karen and her ironic last name).. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    also, Gina might not be mentioned, but she was in the photo the article provided. At least that’s something ๐Ÿ™‚

  398. My fiancรฉ is obsessed with Flash Gordon the movie… He was so disgusted with the show last night that he walked out of the room and locked himself in the bedroom for the last half of the episode.

    WTF is up with Ming dressing like a normal guy? He and his daughter are royalty and they so did not look or act the part.

    The script was very bland. I think it could have been better, but it seems like they put a rush on it to get it out in the summer.

    I’ll watch a couple more episodes, but I am not holding my breath that it’ll get any better.

    How is everyone’s Saturday so far?

  399. AlisaSG said

    okay, I meant *funny* (about the FLASH GORDON article) in a *weird* way

  400. Anyone around today? I’ll be in the Hens chat for a while.

    ming was bummer but they have to be careful with P.C. crowd these days flash himself bland but script had some good parts ginaws good and they put another girl in for interaction. i give it a c remember BT ha chessy MOTW bringing it down to A-

  402. Gotta go clean the house. I’ll pop in and out throughout the evening.

    Take care folks!

  403. AlisaSG said

    >> One thing that might be a spoiler if I donโ€™t work it just right: How many of you figured out where the item everyone was looking for was once you heard it pronounced correctly?

    maybe I’m a bit dense, but I got it only a few seconds before FLASH did. When he pulled out the watches, it was a *dead* giveaway. Something so practical, yet dumb (on the corny DW spectrum).. I actually thought it was pretty clever to do that.. from a creative writer’s perspective. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Poor Gina… at this rate, her future on FLASH GORDON is doomed.
    more reviews came in (to the Gateworld link I mentioned earlier). I guess since most of the first few commentaries were on the positive side, the anti-Sci-Fi channel started spouting off about how awful it was. So, now the level of positive reviews dropped probably to about 30% in favor for watching future eps.

    Hi guys!
    Been out all day with my mom and I am ready for a bubble bath and a nap….whooo wee…run run run…
    Funny thing is I found my self searching for bats at every store we went into that had started putting out holloween stuff! Didn’t find a single one that was cute! Well I have my coloney? of little purple guys to keep me company.

    Dani – any luck? if not I’ll get it from you monday…..that way I can print it out in color and see the red corrections…thanks!

    Anywho – I was not impressed with Flash at all – I was dozing off by the time I figured it was going to be an hour and a half instead of an hour – not a good sign. And the IMEX thing – I kept thinking why are they looking for a theater? (IMAX) until I saw the watches! oh Imex – Timex…duh…
    and now the bounty hunter is going to live with Flash? I see things going down hill fast…..

    ok I am off for the night – I have furniture to paint and want to get the first coat on before I fall asleep – oooo perfect opportunity to watch an episode of Blood Ties!
    Speeking of which – is anyone else having problems watching the episodes on the LT site – they seem to freeze up the home computer – haven’t tried at work yet.

    OK…have a good night – I’ll check in tomorrow…..

    Aniza….It is soo students think I am insane, I have a Jane Austen “action figure” on my desk!! Complete with her weapon of choice..a quill pen!! HEHEHehehe It so rocks! Now all I need is a William Shakespeare figure and my obsession with British writers will be complete.! !

    Colin Firth…WOW!! Major drool…I discovered him in the A&E Pride and Prejudice..but loved him in Bridget Jones…and all the other movies. I have to fan myself every time I watch the proposal scene in P&P….I kept waiting for him to just grab her up and kiss her senseless. HEHEHEH (I wish)

    That it was as bad as (if not worse than, depending on the ep) “Painkiller Jane” is an achievement no producer should be proud of. Has anyone read the forums on SciFi? Wow, the hostility is palpable!

    And on that note, since the meeting resulted in me being assigned to DO STUFF I’d better get going. I’ll try to be back tonight.

    I will try the Lifetimetv site later, after my download is completed and I can reboot. Often when I have problems with the website it’s a result of my computer being overwhelmed and needing to be rebooted. But I have a feeling the Lifetimetv site is wheezing a bit itself…

  411. prtfvr said

    I think that the chat room and email killed the blog!

  412. I don’t dare wander over to Sci-Fi I think all of the negativity would make my poor computer explode.

  413. not killed… just stilled some of the more random conversations. chat rooms are easier to keep up with anyways.

    >> You know what I most hold against โ€œFlash Gordon?โ€ Itโ€™s that I fell asleep in the last fifteen minutes, making me miss โ€œDoctor Who.โ€ ARGHHHH!

    aghhhhhhh!! it was better than last week’s previews anticipated, too. It had sort of a different tone about itself. (HUGE GRIN!! especially if my deduction about Torchwood is TRUE!)

    i’ll post a link to the running comments on it if you want (the gateworld topic link, not the link).

    >> That it was as bad as (if not worse than, depending on the ep) โ€œPainkiller Janeโ€ is an achievement no producer should be proud of. Has anyone read the forums on SciFi? Wow, the hostility is palpable!

    that’s why I never joined the scifi web forums. It used to be that (bad / hostile) way on (too many trolls ruining each Tv program/ep). I think scifi has become over-run from the google discussion group trolls.. not very trustworthy. Unfortunately, I think they’ve also migrated over to gateworld.. and I think they keep trying to sneak back into the r-com forums, too.

    Plus, I think scifi’s own people are attempting to run the network deliberately into the ground. One person wrote that the network won’t exist after 2009.. (logical question is why, and what would cause it to go poof.. or get gobbled up by the goblins..?) I sense disenchantment among the ranks over there, so they’re forcing the network to *disappear*.. this has been going on since before the year 2000, too, so it’s nothing new — other than, it’s just gotten much worse and more widespread.

    anyway.. last week’s โ€œPainkiller Janeโ€ was actually pretty good! (I like the medical doctor.. he’s the cute, dark-haired guy). ๐Ÿ˜‰

    PRTFVR – my computer does not like the hen house – I can’t see any of the pictures at HenrysHens and I can’t get into the chat romm – major bummer. Anyway I have been informed that I have an early morning tomorrow so I am not going to join the email chat tonight either – sorry guys – doesn’t it just suck when life and or work gets in the way of your obsessions?
    Talk to you later!

    I stand corrected, the videos are locking up too…

    Just a drive by this morning – I’m at my sisters right now and I’m waiting on the familia…..this morning started just way too early…………

    Margaret: I received a message from Lifetime in response to my complaint about the new website: Basically it said:
    “We are experiencing technical difficulties, please keep trying”


    I had a wonderful dream this morning about my characters and now I have the urge to rewrite the begining of my story (how they meet) – which means rewriting all 8 chapters!
    Maybe I’ll just start over and write two at once….don’t know….still going to see if I can make the changes working in what I’ve already written….oh well, this is usually what happens when I start to develope a story.

    And I have another idea for another H&V short story as well – that dream was somethime last night….boy my brain has been busy! So I guess I’ll have to start on that as well.

    Sorry I missed that chat last night – when my cousin comes to visit shes going to check my computer and see if there is a security setting thats blocking the HenHouse…

    ooopps – ok I am being summond…I’ll check back tonight!

    (I had to dig up the links first..) re: DW’s “The Lazarus Experiment”
    for details (contains SPOILERS)
    on Friday’s DOCTOR WHO eppy –please see link at–

    GateWorld Forum > Alternate Universes > Doctor Who > Series 29 Episodes
    The Lazarus Experiment (2906)

    >> So โ€ฆ AlisaSG, Iโ€™ve seen the whole first season of โ€œTorchwood.โ€ What is your deduction?

    check the answer out under here (it in the same topic, but this is a direct forum post link).. it’s actually a two-fold sort of posting, but to understand the 2nd -which directly follows the first, it helps better to read the first one first–

    more *HUGE GRINs* — but only if my deduction theory is correct. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    hint.. it takes a *mastermind* to ingeniously think these things up.. (and I’m not referring to myself, but a specific “DOCTORWHO” character)
    I’m just a little slow on the catching up parts. and if that’s all true, Captain Jack’s in for an even wilder ride than his first one which introduced his character during that ghastly child in WWII
    (“are you my mummy?” “Mahhhhhhhhmmy”) episode with Rose (and DW#9).

  434. msgypsy said

    Today is my day to SEW AND SEW AND SEW and go to the library and just generally wish I would finally get to the end of menopause. (I’ll let you imagine why…)

    AlisaSG, how far back to you go with the Doctor Who series? Because the clues weren’t even particularly subtle in “The Lazarus Experiment.” I’m SO looking forward to seeing Jack with the new Doctor. Talk about weird romance! (Trust us, this isn’t as icky as it sounds. Well, not in the sense that you have to watch stuff. Captain Jack is just … he’s just Captain Jack. No one could accuse him of being normal under any circumstances. And with Rose gone…) There’s a rumor I’d love to see confirmed that Billie Piper will be joining the cast of “Torchwood” either this season (British this season) or next. And I realize Freema Agyeman will be part of “Torchwood” for a couple of shows in the second season, but can you REALLY picture Owen sharing his autopsy/medical room with anyone else?

    Okay, everyone, back to “Blood Ties.” (Sorry, I just had to discuss the whole Doctor Who thing given the opportunity.) Tonight at 10 I’m up to “Norman” again. I really hope the LifetimeTV website is working by then. Sigh!

    Damn, the sewing machine is starting to talk to me. Back later, bloggerini!

  435. msgypsy said

    P.S. Oh, yeah, I forgot to point out that I skirt the line on the British series that I like. I realize I should wait until they air here, but I’m an impatient kind of a girl. So I can confirm your deduction, Alisa, if you want me to. It’s darned good casting, too. BTW, speaking of casting, does Martha’s mum look just a touch like Nichelle Nichols? Or was I influenced by reading an article about Nichols joining the cast of “Heroes” just before watching “The Lazarus Experiment?”

    We now return you to the discussions you were previously involved in. Sorry for the intrusion. The Doctor does that sometimes and we just can’t stop him.

  437. Anzia said

    ^_^ I wonder why we’re all so quite. It might be that summer’s coming to an end and that means more activities and such. I know i’m freakin’ about my job starting tomorrow (*EEK!*). Anyone know anything to contain a good and thurough freak-out? ‘Cause i’m totally open to suggestions

    I was at the Ren fair all day yesterday. Note to self: NEVER allow aunt to bring kids along next time. OMG! 90 degrees with a temper tantrum throwing & demanding *13* year old who makes his 4 year old brother angry and thus very cranky and demanding… UGH! talk about frustration. Top it all off with the fact that I had invited friends from school that I hadn’t seen in a while and you have a tremendously embarassing & trying day. I almost cried. I was seriously about ready to just sit down and BAWL my eyes out. There was one good part though…

    (I should mention that I have a small henna tattoo on my wrist that I got at the ren fair)

    Okay, so I had just gotten my Henna done and me and three friends were waiting for my aunt. We were standing across from a tent that housed homemade hand scrubbing soaps. Well, this guy comes out and asks if we’d had our free hand scrub yet (REALLY cute btw). I look at the other three who all look at me so I turn back to the guy and he says that it will only take 2 minutes and whatever we were waiting for can wait that long.

    He bows (at the waist) and points towards the tent in a “lead the way” gesture. Well I look at my friends and repeat the gesture. He looks at me and starts to grabs my wrist (the one w/the henna) and tells me to come along. (not in a rude way) Well, I try to stop him from putting his hand in my new tatto but I didn’t get to in time. He had already hit it.

    He apologizes quite a bit and says to me, “I tried to pull up. I really did. I, I, just didn’t have fast enough reflexes. I just wasn’t fast enough.” By this time my face is red from trying not to laugh (yes, my sexual humor was still working) when he smiles and says, “I said Pull UP not pull OUT you dirty dirty girl” To which my aunt and all my friends respond with, “You have no idea).

    So, I play nice for a while. Joking such very mundanely, but we all know that couldn’t last… So, he’s showing us how to use this scrub and the only guy in my group of friends is scrubbing at his hands really hard. So, I look at him and say “Ben, be gentle. It lasts longer and you get deeper effects.” To which my entire group of friends respond with “Anzia!” and the guy just smiles and says, “i’m not touching that one.” I just smiled and said, “you know you guys missed me!”



    How did the chat thing go last night? I don’t remember hearing anything about it. Are we still up for Sunday @ 10? (I thought we said something about making it a standing appointment until BT comes back…I could be wrong).

  438. Laurel said

    Hey! I thought I was the only one who’s sewing machine spoke! Mine has been grumbling in the corner because I’ve been spending so much time with my computer. (Which actually means I’ve been spending time with all of you)!
    ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  439. Laurel said

    Anzia – I loved your “story” about the Ren. Faire. It sounds like you would fit right in with my family! We are all quick with the innuendo and puns, and we would have gotten the giggles so bad we would have been in tears.
    You have lightened my day, and I thank you for that.

  440. omg Z! You are naughty! Although I’m not one to talk, when I am at Ren Faire I play a not so nice Irish lass. You were being a saint compared to what rolls off my tongue when the patrons aren’t around. *giggles*

    I’ll be around today, as usual.

  441. Anzia said

    LA- Oh, I was playing nice. That poor man (did I mention how cute he was) was so apologetic (sp?) about my henna. I felt a bit bad for him so the joking was to put him at ease…i’m guessing it didn’t work. ^_^ Oh, his HANDS! they were HUGE! and soft, and gentle (even when he was pulling me…) And TALL! I’m 5’10” & I only came up to his shoulders (barely!). *Sigh* i had a good night’s sleep last night ’cause of him! ^_^

    Laurel- I’m glad I could help. I’m definitely the ring leader in the naughty circus that can be my family. ^_^

  442. Faire is a good place to sit and hottie spot. So many good looking guys!

  443. lwildstar said

    Anzia – good luck tomorrow! Your nerves will dissappear as soon as you get going…
    LOVE your ren story! I just knew where your were going to go with that ! I wish I had more fun like that – I guess I need to come out of my shell just a little more…

    Oh well, I’ve spent most of the day with family and I’m bushed!
    I’m going to rework the Blood Ties triva I came up with – I’m splitting it into two sections – TV Series and Books – so when I’m done I can either post it in sections or I can email to every one.

    If we’re chatting tonight I’ll try to stop in – right now I’m going to g finish painting furniture while I still have some energy.

    Dizxey – bats will be flying your way tomorrow – mom offered to drop them off at the post office.

    Elizabeth – if you are checking in on us while away – yours little guy is going out tomorrow as well…..

    Talk to you later – oh and Part two may be up by the end of the week….I’ll let you know.

  444. Anzia said

    LA- SO TRUE! It’s amazing how much flesh can be shown w/o it being illegal. And the accents…I’m surprised I’ve made it home in one piece! There were quite a few times where I about melted on the spot…*sigh*

    lwildstar-thanks. I hope that’s how it works. ^_^ Feel free to venture from your shell with us. You know we won’t bite…well some of us won’t anyway *looks at henry* ^_^

  445. AlisaSG said

    loves history,
    >> allissasg this is loves history remember my 6000 year old vamp story welli have statrd to write it

    good luck. I’m not really into that type of vampire story.

    based on your earlier descriptions, he just sounds too evil and unlikeable…
    and to recruit Henry into his domain.. don’t think so. I can picture Henry being at serious odds with this creature. And tho Henry may have let his own “powers” get to his head, he knows he’s not as power hungry as his nemesis’ are.

    Of course, that’s my own impression of Henry, so it’s pointless for me to say more about that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  446. I can’t promise that I won’t bite…. Sorry. I’m a nibbler, I bite everyone eventually. But if I do bite you it means I think you are cool.

  447. AlisaSG said

    >> P.S. ..I realize I should wait until they air here, but Iโ€™m an impatient kind of a girl. So I can confirm your deduction, Alisa, if you want me to.

    hmmmm.. did you read the 2nd (DW) link that had the possible *theory* in it?

    >> AlisaSG, how far back to you go with the Doctor Who series? Because the clues werenโ€™t even particularly subtle in โ€œThe Lazarus Experiment.โ€

    ohhhhhhh, and this is including that link I just mentioned… I wasn’t thinking my deductive theory at first glance… I was thinking TORCHWOOD, tho.. whispers of sweet nothing evils..
    and I could never figure out WHY TORCHWOOD was anti-DOCTORWHO until after the 2nd post reveals it’s potential secret!

    anywho.. after reading the 2nd post (see above DW topic “Lazarus…” link), it makes (plenty of) sense! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve seen all of the DW eps that the rest of the USA has seen. NJN-Tv (PBS) had them all, except for the ones that ended up lost, because of the BBC’s lack of programming foresight.

    So, this is going waaaaaaaaaaaaay back (Jon Pertwee’s era, if you’re familiar with it). If you read the 2nd link and piece the words together, including the theory about the “mastermind” (ahem!) behind it all, it just seems that ALL of the pieces of the more GIANT puzzle (universal sized) come together better.

    somewhere between the moment the Doctor saved the Queen and the day she vowed to dedicate TORCHWOOD into destroying him, made me wonder if that other someone (a certain *famous* DW character) didn’t show up and intervene and brainwash her the way Martha’s mom got brainwashed in โ€œThe Lazarus Experiment.โ€

  448. AlisaSG said

    re: the TORCHWOOD / DW situation or persona..
    PS– the clue to who I think it is – is listed in the (ahem!) paragraph.
    it’s nearly spelled out, too.
    *cough, cough!!* ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  449. AlisaSG said

    I just had a *wild* thought..

    I don’t see Henry as a power hungry vampire. I see him more in line with taking the same side as “Doctor Who”.

    So, here’s my wild thought – Henry teams up with the Doctor and fights against the forces of evil in the universe. okay, maybe that might end up being a short-lived TARDIS journey, and trimmed down to a few eps, but it’d be a hoot!

  450. Tango said

    Z – Great story ๐Ÿ™‚ It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. Now you didn’t mention what you tatoo was. Hello Kitty perhaps? Or was it the art of Mehndi?

    To get rid of this anxiety there are some deep breathing exercizes that will help flush this rigid energy out of your body.

    Controlled Breathing Exercise:

    Sit upright in a comfortable position.
    Focus on your present state and existence (this is often termed being โ€œmindfulโ€). Block out intrusive thoughts. You may close your eyes if you wish. Think of your happy thought (mine is puppies in a basket – corney I know, but hey – it works)
    Pay attention to your breathing. Inhale slowly through the nose, taking several seconds.
    Exhale through the mouth, trying to make the exhalation phase last twice as long as the inhalation.
    Continue this mindful breathing for 3-5 minutes.

    Now I am not one who battles clinical anxiety or depression, so this works for me, and I think it will work for you in this case.

  451. msgypsy said

    Back from the library, post awful, and grocery store. Whew! Big sale on those metal, flavor neutral water jugs and I couldn’t resist. It’s purple with some kind of vaguely Indian (Mohadavan, not the guy from “Heart of Ice”) design. Very cool and will definitely hold enough water for me on even long hikes.

    It’s been a totally weird summer. Today it’s overcast, cool, and raining. I’m not sure what to make of it.

    I think I’m going to sew for a bit, then watch a movie or two, and try to come back in time to chat while watching an episode of “Blood Ties.” If it’ll let me…

  452. DebS said

    Just wanted to drop in to say hi. I have been unpacking in between bouts of laziness. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have decided that unpacking is way better than the actual packing and moving. But it is taken forever. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! I will try to stop by the chat room later. Adios!!!

  453. AlisaSG said

    the insatiable curiousity is beginning to nag me.. even the DW folks haven’t yet answered or added to the question (in the above linked Lazarus topic).

    >> P.S. ..I realize I should wait until they air here, but Iโ€™m an impatient kind of a girl. So I can confirm your deduction, Alisa, if you want me to.

    did you get to see my (DOCTOR WHO) post, and etc above..?
    if you know the answer, am I close, spot on, or far off course?

    If I am spot on target, think TPTB will make the stories effective enough to give Captain Jack one of the wildest rides of his life at TORCHWOOD? He’d have to end up playing a double agent of sorts, if he is to keep his job and access to valuable equipment that goes light years beyond normal comprehension, and then keep everyone guessing at which side of the fence he’s on — the way the Doctor does at times. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    *sigh* .. I just read ahead on the DW forums at gateworld.. they’re coming up with the same speculations that I am (and their comments are dated back to MAY 2007!!) -eeeeeeeeek!!

    so when I went in to look, I guessed next week is a 2-parter?
    but then when I started to check out ep 2908, it seemed to end up being a 3-parter! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    good thing I need to start a new DVD for the next series of 3 or 4 eps. ๐Ÿ˜€

    and funny (peculiar* ehhh?) thing too. ๐Ÿ˜›
    saw someone on the scifi forum as aliasgirl. rearrange the first five letters.. I think someone was reading alisa’s comments on GW.. luv it! whoever replied to aliasgirl, sort of reinforced my deductive theory, but I still haven’t seen an official (authentic enough) answer yet.
    just luv it..!!

    Sorry girls – but only Henry is allowed to bite – but I will allow nibbles from others…a little nibble never hurts!
    I really need to get out more with people other thatn family! and lately its been ALL family!.

    I missed the post about DW – I only watch on and off so I saw part one of the Dylack invasion but missed part two and then saw the Lazeruos experiment – so I’m lost….

    I figured out how to redo the beginging of MY story (My charators) by adding a prolouge and then I tweeked the first couple of chapters – if this works i wont have to “re write” the whole thing. May be – of course this is presuming I don’t give up on the whole thing – I’m trying really really really hard to stick with it this time……

    I am starting a second Hentry and Vick short….Dani is working on editing part two of the first one. When I post that would you guys prefer that I just tack it on to the end of part one – or make a new link?

    I’m going to hang around awhile.

    I think that our campaign, worked! I think that Life Time was going to dump BT avter hurridly showing it for 5 weeks………..
    extending the 10 episodes for 10 weeks is good for building a fan base but it will only work if we can look forward to another season in March!!!!!!
    If post cards are getting to expensive, why not contact advertisers? That also helps…….
    Any way you all rock!

    Chery…I think you are right..I was really worried about the whole 2 episodes in 5 weeks…I think our hard work has paid off..

    Dizy,,hugs….hope today is a better day..

    Tango…He amazes me…he had double hip replacement like 3 years ago and he still goes everywhere..waks with a cane but still on his feet.

    Didnt make it to teh chat last night, kids asleep in the room with the computer..oh welll….I have to get ready for the day…busy busy busy

  466. DebS said

    Good morning (almost afternoon). Crazy busy day at work per usual. I am choosing to think only positive thoughts about renewal. And I am working to get others to watch the show when it comes back in October. I really hope they do a marathon before the fall season premiere.

  467. Bryony said

    Buongiorno! I have been brushing up on my Italian. Speaking if Colin Firth, Who knows the story of The Secret Garden. Actually most of you probably do. That was my favorite story growing up. He had a small role in the 1987 movie version of the story. He played a grown up Colin Craven at the end of the movie when Mary Lennox goes back to Mistlethwait Manor after being a nurse in World War I. He ask her to marry him and they kiss.

  468. DIZEY1 said

    Buongiorno, Bon Jour, Good morning ya’ll,

    Sorry I missed the chat last night someone update me and let me know what I missed please. Thanks for Rob’s hugs and well wishes ๐Ÿ˜‰ I talked w/him this morning and he’s good but sore, needless to say. Superhuman strength ya’ know.

    Well my sweet Mom’s mailing of the box today to Lady A and she should have it in a couple of days. Lady A the box is a good size and you should be able to add Woof and Rosary to it and bee good to go. BTW the send to info is in the box (paper w/your name on it.) ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh Bryony I love the Secret Garden such a wonderful story, and again I love those period pieces.

  469. Bryony said

    Oh Yeah Lady A my dad is bringing the little recipe cards I made up to the post office today. I laminated them over the weekend. I also added a few dollars to the envelope to help pay for shipping. If you need more let me know.

  470. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all!! Haven’t read to catch up on the blog yet. I feel like crap today. So, it will probably take me a while.

  471. DIZEY1 said

    Maddie Mo why do you feel bad I know why I do ๐Ÿ˜‰ Catching up here was a breeze now my emails’ a different story all together. ๐Ÿ˜€

  472. Maddie Mo said

    Let’s just say that not only do I need a room at the Bloody Ford Clinic. I should probably get myself one at the Betty Ford Clinic as well. I had WAY too much to drink last night and I am paying a great price for it today.

  473. DIZEY1 said

    Maddie I know Melanie and I hung out in the pool all day yesterday and Sat, evening and it’s so easy to keep a cold beer in the huggie while floating you just don’t realize how much you’ve consumed ๐Ÿ˜‰ We need to make sure we have adjoining suites at the clinics. Of cousre it will have hospitality bar right??
    (hee hee hee )

  474. Maddie Mo said

    You know it has just been so damn hot and the drinks were just so cold. And today at work sucks so bad cause I just want to go back to bed till my stomach stops flip flopping. I refuse to miss a day of work over a hang over though. I guess I feel if your gonna play you gotta pay.

  475. Maddie Mo said

    Diz I forgot to ask why do you feel bad, same as me or is something else wrong?

  476. Margaret said

    Still need to know how much money I owe on the gifts, postage, etc. Lady A. please email me at and let me know. Thanks. M.

  477. lwildstar said

    hello ,ladies1

  484. Annalaise duChat said

    Good Afternoon all!
    Where is everyone today? Just stopped by to say Hi and catch up on anything important.

    I also need to know how much money to send and whom to send it to. You can e-mail me at

    A big thanks to all who put the card and gifts together!!

  486. Margaret said

    lwildstar: What a storyteller you are becoming. Loved it!

  487. Bryony said

    Does anyone know what happened to Madonna? She hasn’t come on yet. Maybe she fizzled out from working on Kyle’s card.

  488. Bryony said

    Ok does anybody know what happened to everybody? Jeez it is like a ghost town on here today. I can seriously here the wind whistling around the buildings.

  489. lwildstar said

    just snuck in to see whats up – I needed a brain break! – quiet- guess I’ll check back in when i get home – really need to get back to work!

    Annalaise duChat – thanks! I’ll check my email!

  490. Bryony said

    Ciao! Anybody that is lurking. I am leaving soon.

  491. Margaret said

    lwildstar-seemed purrrfect to me. Don’t have any comments. You’re getting better and better all the time. I’m jealous.

  492. DIZEY1 said

    Bye my Dani (oops Bryony) girl, have a great evening, sorry got a little busy today but will try to be more talkative tomorrow.

    Iwildstar, loved it! Love the lick on the wrist ๐Ÿ˜‰ The kissing was good too and I like Kel, seems a lot like Vicki.

    Lady A**** the box has flown the coup and shpd to you w/in 2-3 days. Let me know when the eagle lands ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Himmie , thanks I’m good just too much sun and hooch (slaps hand ….baddd girl) ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  493. I won’t know the final cost of shipping until after I get it to the post office. I will send out a group letter letting everyone know how much it was.

  494. Margaret said

    Thanks. Lady A-appreciate it. Has anyone heard from Madonna? Did she collapse from all the work on the card?

  495. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret I haven’t seen her today but I’ve been laying low also. BTW Margaret can you let Stacy know I sent out another *27* pc’s today I know wierd number but maybe it’s the lucky number ๐Ÿ˜‰

  496. Margaret said

    No problem (as she bows her head in shame). How did you manage 27? Way to go.

  497. DIZEY1 said

    Margaret, that’s how many my sweet mother had addressed so I wrote em’ all and when I counted them I thought what an odd amount. It’s a sign ooh maybe Lifetime’s gonna give us our new seasons on the 27th of this month. Cool gift for Kyle and for our Claire ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Ok kido’s catch ya’ll when I get home, thank God Monday’s over !!

  498. Margaret said

    Tell your mom I love her…..What a wonderful woman. Haven’t been able to convince my mom to do it. I get the speach about don’t you have better things to do with your money anytime we discuss it. lol.

  499. lwildstar said

    Dizey – thanks….Part two was actually harder to write then part one….we’ll see how the next one goes!
    Kel is one of my 13 alter egos – does that tell you something! Anyway toying with bringing her back in the next story – after she gets out of the hospital – what do you think?
    You are so lucky your mom helps you with the cards – I can’t even mention Blood Ties, the Blog, or postcards around mom – she gets that “look”, bugs the heck out of me.

    If I didn’t email this to you check this out – new drinking game!

    I’m going to go visit LT and see if I can get in – and then I’m goig to go write!

  500. lwildstar said

    Margaret – I get the speach about “donโ€™t you have better things to do with your money” anytime I mention Blood Ties, the Blog, or postcards around mom, which is why I don’t anymore!

    Changing NAMES!

  504. DIZEY1 said

    Umm that Youtube video should have our names in the credits, they stole our stuff. And they did’nt do it as good as we’d have done it. Thhhhbbbbbbb(Bronx Cheer) like I said no control issues here ๐Ÿ˜‰

  507. Before I forget **Z** how was the big first day?? I am sure you dazzled them with your brilliance ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you had a great first day !!

  508. Dizey – its lWildstar – since everyone seems to be playing around with thier nemaes I thought I would tooโ€ฆโ€ฆthis is my pen name with the short story…I stumped you? really?

    Oh yes Anzia – how did it go?

    And the name game continiues!

    Marie Laveau – are you Margaret or Rifkind?

  509. Marie Laveau – Or is it Dizey?!

  510. prtfvr said

    I’m so lonely in the chat room.

    Marie Laveau? Voodoo priestess, if I’m not mistaken.

  511. sorry Prtfvr, chat room still wont let me in…and I still can’t see the pictures. Bummer!
    I will try again over the weekend, my cousin is going to email me some things to check on the security settings.

    Well I’m off for the night!

  512. Chery said

    Please remove me from the distribution list. Love to listen to the chatter but too many e-mail on my private e-mail

    I will just type at ya all on Ms Gypsy’s list.


  513. lwildstar said

    you know I went back and started reading over what I posted – and you know I think I posted the version before the corrections – so if you are reading and want to take another look – be my guest…I really have no clue, so I reposted it.

  514. Margaret said

    lwildstar-I’m still Margaret. Haven’t changed my name so thats someone else. This is a drive by posting as I have more post cards to do. Later

  515. Tango said


    what’s your email address so that we can all delete you from the distribution list. Many of us start the email, it might not just be coming from prtfvr.

  516. Hey Prtfvr, Iwildstar, Margaret it’s me the “Witch Queen of New Orleans” fits today I’m feeling a bit on the “Witchy Woman” side. Wow 2 songs in one sentence. Prtfvr just a little more of that trivial, someday I’ll use it , information huh ? You’d be a good Jeopardy player.

    Chery no problem I’ll check mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tango et Claire comment allez vous cette soirรฉe smoldering.

  517. AlisaSG said

    well, I’ll be sticking to one name here.. makes life so much easier.. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    as for LIFETIME only showing ONE viewing of BT per week — is that what I’m hearing now??

    1) it’s going to cramp the Stargate schedule, translating taping will have to be forgone for the last 10 minutes of SG, so the BT taping can start and end
    ON TIME..!

    2) only ONE viewing?? BT viewers – something screwy is going on with that!
    If ARMY WIVES can have 10 (that’s TEN) viewings of the same episode in the *same* week, surely BLOOD TIES can have at least THREE..

    but no, they’re screwing it down to ONE…???
    I know people who work late, and used to fly home to get the midnight viewing.. but 11 PM only..??

    screwy. how can anyone stay positive in knowing that..?
    time to get a satellite dish, and start watching on the international WORLD channels, instead.. or wait til the DVD’s come out.
    first SciFi goes on loose screws, now Lifetime’s pulling the same (insert ____)!!

  518. As much as I would love to chill tonight and maybe harass you all in the chat, my brain is fried and a nasty migraine is starting to sneak up on me.

    Talk to you all tomorrow!

    Take care, Peace!!

  519. Vapor said

    Who could this be? I wonder… Hmm…

    well I’m not going to make it too hard to figure out (although only a few people will know why I picked this name… AGAIN).

    My first day was rather boring. I know the entire history of the Kohl’s department store (did you know it started with a family owned grocery store?), where it is now (it has 834 stores in 46 states and over 130,000 associates working for it!) and where it’s going to be (another 99 stores open this fall & there will be a total of 1200 by 2010). I know how much the stock is (50.18) compared ot when it went on the market (1.48 in 1992). I know that they made 15.5 billion dollars last fiscal year. I know that there are 400 trash cans in the Corprate Office. I also know that since they implimented free coffee all day (Feb. 06) they’ve gone through 8,000 gallons of decaf and 35,000 gallons of reg. I also know that the Coprate office is 880,000 sq. ft. and I took a tour over almost all of it (GAH! HOT!).

    OUt of all of this info that I know now…how much is relevant to my job? NOt much. As a matter of fact. I really don’t learn anything about MY job specifically until tomorrow. I did, however, get to spend the day staring at one VERY nice looking man (who just got engaged).

    I also made a friend. YAY! Her name is Sarah and she just graduated from College in May. She’s SO NICE. I think I’m gonna be okay on that front. Seeing as we were sat in groups and within 5 minutes I had the table laughing. ^_^

    So, tomorrow is my first day in the building i’m actually working in. We’ll see how that goes. I’m kinda more nervous NOW then I was today. *sigh* Oh well…

  520. **Z** you’re such a smart and good person you’ll have no trouble in anything you set out to do. Positive affirmations, you are that good you just don’t believe it yet ๐Ÿ˜‰ now about that stock ๐Ÿ˜€

    So glad you had a great day, like our first day at school huh ??

  521. Tango said

    Vapor! Was that you? Figures you were gone before I had a chance to see you! Just like Vapor! I can’t believe that name stuck. ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course you were a big hit today. We had no doubt about that. I know you will make a lot of friends and who knows, Mr. Engagement just might change his mind when he meets you!

    I’m so dorky, I actually found that Kohl’s trivia interesting and probably now know more about Kohl’s than I do about my company. Don’t let them know though. It’s just our secret ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hello Miss Laveau! Feeling a little witchy do you? What’s gotten into you?

    Lady A – sorry you’re not feeling well tonight. Those migraines are a force to be dealt with. I hope you have some good meds.

    AlisaSG – I’m with you – one name is about all I can handle. I even hate when I have to change my password on things!!

  522. jpbaci1 said

    did i start a trend in name changeing i didnt do it on purpose

  523. Vapor said

    *bows* why thank you my dear!

  524. Hello Miss Laveau! Feeling a little witchy do you? Whatโ€™s gotten into you?

    Tango could I say Henry?? I WISH ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m needing some new Henry badddd. I’m Jonesin’ for some hot fresh Henry. I’ve rewatched those ep’s so many times I’m doing the darn dialog w/ all the characters. I even find myself doing the inflections and hand gestures, it’s sad I tell you and even better, I still laugh at scenes like it’s the first time I’ve seen them. It’s a bit twisted. I like it , huh ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  525. Tango said

    Good night my dears! Only six hours of battery-charging sleep. And I need every minute of it! Sweet dreams to you all!
    Tango out~

  526. Well my sista’s it’s pumpkin time for me. I’ll chat with ya’ll tomorrow.

    *Z** sleep well and have wonderful day tomorrow kick some ass ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Lady A feel better migraines suck sorry ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Love ya’ll XOXOXOXOX

    Reves doux d’Henri

  527. Tango said

    So are you doing with dialog when others are watching you? I bet you put on quite a show! I’ve really gotta go now. My eyes are closing involuntarily.

  528. Vapor said

    Tango- ^_^ Of course! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will TOTALLY kick butt! Only question is, How much butt will be kicked? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  529. msgypsy said

    From the SyFy Portal comes the news that “Flash Gordon” did fairly well in the ratings. My res[ect for SciFi Channel keeps dropping lower and lower and lower…

    Source: Sci-Fi Channel

    While they might not be something Bonnie Hammer is hanging up on her refrigerator, the new “Flash Gordon” series debuted to respectable numbers Friday night.

    SciFi Channel called it the best-rated series premiere of 2007, earning a 1.5 household rating from Nielsen Media Research, representing approximately 2.1 million viewers. Those numbers finished ahead of two other series premieres over the past eight months on the network — “Painkiller Jane” earned a 1.3 household, while “The Dresden Files” clocked a 1.4 household in its series debut.

    “Flash Gordon” — which had mostly negative reviews — also delivered for SciFi in key advertising demographics, including 1.2 million adults between the ages of 25 and 54, and 973,000 viewers between 18 and 49. That made it the fifth-most watched entertainment program for adults 18 to 49, and seventh for 25 to 54. The network also touted the fact that its 25 to 54 demo numbers were stronger than ABC, which aired back-to-back reruns of comedian George Lopez’s sitcom.

    The ratings might be tops for 2007 for SciFi Channel, but they greatly pale to other premieres in recent years including the ones for “Battlestar Galactica” and “Stargate: Atlantis.”

  530. Madonna said

    Taaaaaa Daaaaaaaaaa…………

    Ladies, if you haven’t already check your email. Kyle”s card awaits you. 7 pages.

    Thanks for thinking of me. Since Sunday morning I’ve pretty much been in bed. I seem to have caught a little stomach thing. I even took a sick day yesterday, but I’m feeling better now. Last night I was finally able to keep some food down. (Too much info…?)

    Anzia, So happy to hear that so far at least you like work.

    I have lots of catching up to do. I’ll check back in during break.

  531. Madonna said

    Also too, cartoons aren’t necessarily my forte. In fact I haven’t done a cartoon since college eight years ago. I hope you like it. If you don’t, feel free to rip me a new one, just be gentle about it OK!

    BTW…. Does anyone have an email address for Vicki?

  532. lwildstar said

    just my morning drive by to check in.
    Madonna – loved the card! you are fantastic!
    Name Game – i’m going to need a score card if we keep changing names!
    Will check back at lunch.

  533. Vapor said

    Wahhh! off to day 2.

    Madonna- you’re AMAZING

  534. Chery said

    Thanks Tango:

    You are a great group!, just too many e-mails is a little over-whelming! Actually most of you are on this list, so I can chat with you here!

    My personal e-mail is

  535. Annalaise duChat said

    Morning all!

    Madonna — I absolutely loved the card. You are so creative! Kyle should love it too. He’s a lucky man to have fans like you.Actually he’s a lucky man to have fans like us! We rock!

  536. msgypsy said

    Madonna, the card is gorgeous and if it doesn’t get a response of some sort I’ll be surprised. I’d love to see it posted at Hens for all to see, if that’s okay with you and prtfvr.

    Gotta run. (Sound familiar?) But it’s my postcard day. Keep the faith, fellow believers!

  537. ๐Ÿ™‚ Heh. I think I started this whole name game thing with my little VA type-o. *g* Anywayzzzzz…once again, I hate my job…I hate my life….I basically hate everything right now. That pic pretty much fits my mood. I swear, I take one lousy friggin’ day off because I can’t make up time for a stupid doctor appointment ’cause I’m on a fixed schedule because I ride a bus and I’m expected to do everything. GGGGRRRRRR!!! The doctor App. was a total waste of time anyways. I sat a whole half hour past my app time and then another 15 min just to talk to the Doc for a few min then I left. We pretty much agreed that at this point, therapy isn’t gonna help my knee at all. It pretty much has to heal on it’s own.

    Plus I’ve been having some really disturbing dreams lately. The other night I had a dream that I was a vampire and I attacked and bit someone…someone I used to be friends with since we were kids but I don’t talk to him anymore ’cause he’s a big jerk…long story…anyways…in the dream I remember him saying something like telling me I was hungry and I should eat something and I said something like ‘I’m not hungry for food’ and I pretty much jumped on him and bit him. Seems didn’t take too much blood, ’cause I remember after that I went out to find someone else to bite. *g* Then last night I had another dream with Marcus in it. Don’t remember much except that it involved more blood. I swear, all these blood dreams are getting really disturbing…
    More on that later…

  538. prtfvr said

    Hey VA!! Sounds like we have one angry little vamp over there! I can completely identify!

    After emailing my boss back and forth today the last one from her has put me into such a funk that it’s hard to breathe (heavy sigh time). What’s worse is that the email isn’t even bad. Just something that irritated me but has thrown me into depression.

    Man, it SUCKS being like this. How many drugs do I have to take before this random shit stops popping up out of no where and takes me down? ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is where someone usually inserts the “be grateful for what you have” or “it could be worse” something like that and then I DO feel worse for feeling depressed. I’m on vacation for two weeks starting next Monday. Maybe that’s all I need.

    Here’s the thing about depression: if it’s just a feeling but nothing specific really causes it, how do you get out of it? You know, you don’t have a REASON but you just feel like it’s harder and harder to get through the day?

    I’m SO tired…

  539. Himmiefan said

    Hi ladies! I’ve just been lurking the last few days. Lurking plus pulling up old carpet, which I’m glad to see go!

    Prtfvr – I’ve had that feeling, and I think it’s burn out. Sounds like vacation is what you need.

  540. Prtfvr, yo sista’ I as your friend will NOT try to tell you something sappy like the afore mentioned. I your incontinent, copulating friend will say print up a picture of your boss and do like Madonna’s card w/ Mendoza and throw darts at her skanky butt!! May lift your spirits a little. Or think of Pumpkin kisses ๐Ÿ˜‰ I lend you my Mom’s motto…..”If you keep moving they can’t get ya’! ” I love her she’s my hero ๐Ÿ˜€

  541. Himmiefan said

    Hello! Hello!! Ladies! Ladies! Who’s got Henry? Send him to Prtfvr ASAP!!! Emergency! Emergency!

  542. Maddie Mo said

    Good Morning all!!!
    I feel like I am once again amoung the living, unlike yesterday. Acutally yesterday I knew I was alive cause I wanted to die I felt so bad.

    Prtfvr- I hope your vacation helps you start to feel better. I know it sucks to feel the way you are.

  543. Bryony said

    Boungiorno! prtfvr-I will not tell you any of that crap as I am on meds too. My date is on meds for depression also.

    I was talking to my sister earlier. She has no place to live yet. We will found out the sex of the baby on Monday and she says that it is moving around a lot. I guess the baby is an active little bugger.

  544. Annalaise duChat said

    Prtfvr– When things start to go bad, remember girl, YOU ARE LOVED!

  545. Himmiefan said

    Maddie Mo – glad to hear you’re feeling better!

    Dizey – are you any better?

  546. Maddie Mo said

    Himmiefan- Thanks, I should know better, but clearly I don’t.

    Diz- they called from The Betty and our rooms are ready.

  547. prtfvr said

    Awww! You guys! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  548. Hereโ€™s the thing about depression: if itโ€™s just a feeling but nothing specific really causes it, how do you get out of it? You know, you donโ€™t have a REASON but you just feel like itโ€™s harder and harder to get through the day?

    Iโ€™m SO tiredโ€ฆ

    To prtfvr….if you find out…let me know. I’ve been feeling like that for a LONG time. Try since Dec 2004…off and on. I swear, it all started with the passing of my cat Samantha and everything else just kept going downhill from there. *sigh*

  549. lwildstar said

    just checking in…need the emotional boost.
    Also I changed my nmae picture and want to see if it worked!

    Made a stupid mistake this morning and worked my self into a fit sent and email of appoligy – and the lady emailed back no biggie – so I feel better now…

    Havent seen more than two comments on Darkness Falls – so is that good or bad?

    Ok running off to get something to eat and take a mental break – I think I’ll see if I can get on LT and watch some BT!

  550. lwildstar said

    yeah the new picture worked!

  551. did anyone already post this link to the Q&A with Tanya at CityTV? Is short but I love how she descripes Kyle!”A: I was never, ever able to cast Henry while I was writing the books and I think that’s because Kyle Schmid wasn’t around at the time”
    The rest of her description of his acting is wonderful!

    Here’s (((((((((HUGS)))))))))) to all who need them.

    As I’ve told everyone I’ve dealt extensively with depression too. One trick that keeps me going is to find something…. some little thing to look forward to. Be it lunch with a friend, seeing those cute little birds at the end of the work day or just hanging out with us girls…… Looking forward to something = hope and hope is what keeps us going.


    Thank you everyone for the compliments. You can’t see, but I’m blushing here. I truly hope that it lived up to everyone’s expectations. I learned a few things in the making.

    1. I’ve worked on the computer far too much – I really need to draw more.
    2. I have a crappy scanner – Pretty nice printer but a crappy scanner.
    3. There are lot of us. – I just couldn’t make us fit on one page.
    4. Sleep? – Ah who the hell needs it anyway?
    5. This is a great group we have here. – I already knew that, this just reinforced it.

    I think the thing Kyle will like most about all of this, is that we are not asking for anything in return….. Autographs etc….. I think he will also like the fact that we are not overtly drooling over him in our comments.

    Lady A,
    My mom is taking the hard copy to the post office and I am shipping it to you with the quickest available service. It should be on it’s way now. I’ve also enclosed some $$$ in another envelope to help cover the rosary and shipping costs.

    I haven’t forgotten about that post card design. I just haven’t had a chance to send it. It’ll be on it’s way this evening.

  553. Margaret said

    Madonna: Don’t sweat it, there truly is no rush. I got an hp photosmart which doesn’t want to recognize anything other than photo paper in the tray I want to put the post cards in. Spent 2 hours on the phone last night talking to someone in Pakistan trying to override the problem. She finally said a supervisor would call me at 7:00 tonight. I may just give up, buy some labels and be done with it. I know you’ve been busy.

    The card is a work of art. What a talent you are. I hope he appreciates all the work that went into it. He should enjoy the drinking game as he said in an interview he likes a nice glass of Guiness.

  554. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Madonna you most definitely need to take a bow, I printed a copy for myself and kept reading it . This is hysterical and I think Kyle will appreciate that we don’t take ourselves so seriously too. So funny I do love all the hens comments great, great job. He will so love this and Cali is awesome, pretty cool the way you pulled her from that picture. Yep you ROCK!!! Love ya and thanks again for the labor of love ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  555. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Prtfvr, how’d we do this week on IMDB ?? The numbers we see I’m thinking are different than what you have access to?? Inquiring minds want to know ๐Ÿ˜€

  556. Himmiefan said

    Madonna – I just now read the card, and it’s adorable!! You did a fantastic job! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love how you worked Cali in.

    Yeah Madonna!

  557. Ok just went and did my IMDB duty – never made it on to LT – it was so slow!

    Talk to you after work!

  558. Nightwalker I love that name BTW I think of “Blood Price” when the crazy Hellfire people had him captive and Astaroth said finish the spell Nightwalker and bring me through”. I thought that’s where you got the name. I love your Hen also laying on the ground and Himmie broke your fall. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe you fell wearing those red heels , tough when you’ve been drinking.

  559. lwildstar said

    Actually Nightwalker is one of my 13 alter egos – told you they might start creeping up…and actually she was a vampire hunter (no hissing allowed) because she has since changed her ways! well not really – she would still hunt down one in particular, but for very different reasons (snicker wink0wink) ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Oh too bad madonna can’t go back and add the red shoes! hahahaha!

    Well i’m suposed to be working, but I spent my lunch doing BT things and now I can’t think!
    You know the average employee waste 90 minues aday on the computer doing non work related things – ooopps I think i just went over that!

  560. Sista’ I am waaaaay over that 90 min. HA!! Don’t tell TPTB ๐Ÿ˜‰

    See ya’ll when I get back from lunch.

  561. Madonna said

    Is everything OK? You’ve been unusually quiet today.

  562. Bryony said

    Yeah things are fine. Just been really busy. Two in my department are on vacation.

    Hey does anyone know where I can get or order seamless socks for Amber?

  563. rifkind said

    Can you forward Madonna’s card to my billnrose email?
    We had a horrible storm last night, and we lost power at the house.. I don’t know if we will have power again tonight or not.. UGH!
    So I am way way behind in reading my Yahoo! emails…
    But I can peek at my billnrose email account here at work!

    Hugs to all who are fighting sickness and depression.

  564. Back again. *g* The weird thing about that dream was, I haven’t talked to my former friend Shaun aka the big jerk in a long time now, so I REALLY have no clue where that even came from. Odd. SO don’t wanna anaylze that. Guess I just had this really big urge to bite him…for numerous reasons. Shame I didn’t bite his girlfriend/fiance in the dream aka the huge Bitca…the one who will seriously ruin his life if he marries her. Sorry…really really long story. Also weird this is the first time I actually bit someone in my dreams that I also know in real life. Or disturbing…
    The dream with Marcus is hazy…all I remember is he had longer hair…in some parts of the dream…other parts he had his regular hair…hmmm…and I think I was following him around again begging him to turn me. Clearly I have blood drinking issues. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜›

  565. Bryony said

    I think we are all having blood drinking issues lately.

  566. Bryony said, “I think we are all having blood drinking issues lately.”

    thats why I keep waffeling between leaving my lead male the demon he’s always been or turning him to a vamp! but then I’d have to rewrite 8 chapters!
    or I can just start another story……

  567. Bryony said

    You have to finish the one you started first. You can’t just leave it to fend for itself.

  568. no I haven’t finished it – the two leads have only just come to an “understanding” that he’s not going to kill her….so i guess I should keep going – I all ready have the next two chapers in my head! ooooo i have an idea – add a vamp 9why does that sound like something you’d see on the home shopping network – like demon be gone!) and create a love triangle – naw thats been done!

  569. DebS said

    Haven’t had a moment to catch up on all the posts, but I did make it through the emails.

    Prtfvr-Hugs! I would send you the scandelous picture of Mike to cheer you up, but you might be at work, and I don’t want to cause a riot.

    Madonna-Loved the card!!! Thanks for including me.

    I have been in Resident Counselor training all day…learning and relearning how to run a residence hall. Tonight the staff is going to dinner and a baseball game, so I won’t be around tonight.

    Have a great night all!!!

  570. Bryony said

    Have fun DebS

  571. Madonna said

    No problem at all DebS.

    I just wanted to note on the card…. It is not in my design that everyone is drinking alcohol. In fact there is a red soda can by Alisa.

    Also too, if you’re interested the CD’s by the stereo are Hinder, Green Day, John Mayer, Nickelback, G Love & Special sauce (for Kyle) and Garth Brooks (I had to have some reason for Danielle to be singing that song.)

  572. Bryony said

    I caught the connection between the two. I love that song too.

  573. Madonna I saw the cd’s the detail you went into ia amazing. Everytime I look at it I find something new, oh I love the portrait you’re doing of Lady A what a trip. So many cool things. Again great job.

    Bryony I did love the 2 Pina Coladas and my Captain Morgan, love it all ๐Ÿ™‚

  574. Danae said

    I changed my name again.

  575. Danae said

    It’s like my real name but different.

  576. Danae said

    Hey did you all here that there is going to be a musical remake of Footloose?

  577. Danae, I think they’re also re-doing Dirty Dancing. I liked Footloose the movie. I like Kevin Bacon too so I’ll watch pretty much anything he’s in.

    BTW like the changing names happening here.

  578. Oh Danae I loved the pic’s of Amber she’s such a cutie patootie ๐Ÿ˜‰ Beautiful blue eyes, and BTW who’s the guy in the pic with you and your dad ??

  579. Danae said

    I am going to be leaving soon. Ciao!

  580. DebS said

    I haven’t left yet..hehe. Isn’t Zac Effron supposed to be doing the remake of Footloose? Or am I just making that up.

  581. Ok you dawg I wish I were leaving soon. Catch ya tomorrow Danae/Bryony/Dani Girl ๐Ÿ˜‰

  582. Danae said

    Really I didn’t here anything about Dirty Dancing. I will have to research that tomorrow. My other cutie Zac Efron is supposedly playing Ren.

  583. Danae said

    DebS You beat me to the punch.

  584. Boy that little Zac sure is gettign around, I guess all those years of taking dance lessons is finally paying off huh ??

  585. Madonna said

    Bye Danae!

  586. Danae said

    He said he didn’t know how to dance until High School Musical. He said he felt weird because he had to have longer lessons then the rest of the cast because he had no clue what he was doing. Poor thing!

  587. Are you kidding me , wow he’s good and looks very natural to me. Logan last weekend kept talking about HSM 2 that’s coming out this weekend right?
    Well that’s all he could talk about and he sat w/ a piece of cardboard some glue and some pics of the cast from HSM1 and glued them on like they were dancing across the stage. He’s six and it’s trip how into this he is. He’s so funny to watch dance, he thinks he’s waaay cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž I love this dude I’ll send ya’ll some pics of him tomorrow. He’s like my Amber , Dani.

  588. Danae said

    Yes HSM2 is out on Friday. Amber has started singing the songs from the first movie. I bought her a High School Musical shirt for school and I am going to get her a HSM bag for her to put her snack in. She is going to be the most stylin kid in kindergarten if I have anything to do with it.

  589. I’m trying to remember some of the songs wasn’t the song “Get your head in the game” from that movie?

  590. Danae said

    Getcha’ Head In The Game, Bop To The Top, Breakin Free, Stick To The Status Quo are some

  591. Danae said

    I am really leaving now. Buonasera!

  592. Oh yeah the staus quo one I remember too. I liked the Getcha’ head in the game dance and all I love that kind of group choreography. I do love musicals ,old ones , new ones love music.

  593. Bye Buddy till tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your day ๐Ÿ˜€

  594. Maddie Mo said

    My niece Morgan LOVES HSM and she has a pic of that Zac. She is 11. Honestly, she has had the movie on at my house a million times but I have never watched it

  595. Madonna said

    Dizey, Marie Laveau,

    Thank you for all the compliments… You know how to make a girl feel good.

  596. Maddie Mo said

    Good Night all, I will catch up with you all tomorrow. Be safe!!

  597. Hey it’s the least I can do because I am “Sotally Tober” man. I loved my hen and a lady @ work raved about how cool the card was. So it’s starting to spread ๐Ÿ˜‰

  598. By Maddie Mo give that beautiful baby a smooch from me. See ya tomorrow.

  600. prtfvr said

    DIZ: The stats for the BT characters this week blew. BT itself was up but everyone else dropped, even pookums Kyle!! The actual numbers aren’t showing up on the stats page, they’re still showing last week’s numbers for some reason. You’d have to open the actual table to see what’s really going on.

    I need to post them! I’ll get on that tonight (if I can get away from the birds in time) or tomorrow.

    BTW: Thank you so much for the well wishes. I realized that I’m getting sick – again. That tends to make me more sensitive that normal and that’s saying something! Stupid mold in the kitchen is going to be the death of me! Thank god we’re getting the floor done on Monday. I don’t know how much longer I can last in there!

    BTW, BTW: Thanks to whoever sent Kyle in the Brendan Fraser/Tarzan-like loin cloth! You really know how to lift a girls…spirits!

  601. prtfvr said

    Madonna: Can I post the card on hens?

  602. vicki said

    hey all..
    Back from the in-laws….the countdown begins before i have to go back into “teacher” mode..I start back next wed…then the kids come back on the following mon.

    I am usually ready to go back when the time comes…but I am hoping that feeling arrives soon. LOL….still not done relaxing and recharging….I think I will get the ball rolling and try to decide what to do with my students about summer reading…hopefully they actually read it. HEHEheheh(Big hope)

  603. Hey Bird Lady I wanna see Kyle in a loin cloth, haven’t we talked about sharesies ??

    Put out sista’

  604. Thank goodness for migraine meds!

    The card… omg it is amazing!!!! Madonna you really did an awesome job. My jaw hit the ground when I saw the amount of detail you put into it!!! I can’t wait to send everything to Kyle I think he’ll love it all!

    I skipped lunch, so I gotta find something to nibble on. I’ll be on and off most of the day.

  605. this is just a drive by – I have such a mirgrain from the bus ride home – the bus was packed with screaming teenage girls….i think they had been at school orientation!
    So I am off for a bubble bath, something to eat and then I am going to go do some writing. Thank you for the comments! very encouraging!

    And Dani girl / Rifkind – I have decided not to scrap the story I’ve already started – I got a little note book to write my vampire ideas in so that I can start that story at another time……

    how do yo like my new name picture? – Henry “nuzzeling” (biting) Vickis neck – hum….what episode do you think thats from?

    And Yes – Hey Bird Lady I wanna see Kyle in a loin cloth, havenโ€™t we talked about sharesies ??

    well I”m off – I’ll check back later if I’m up to it…

  606. Iwildstar*** ๐Ÿ˜€

    Blood Price part 1, w/Sandra some chick! Hey you didn’t add another part to the story since what….. Sunday? With the wrist licking, can ya tell I LIKED that part for some reason, very sexy. Order of the YUM!!!

  607. prtfvr said

    Sheesh! I get a gorgeous, well toned 22 year old in a loin cloth and everyone wants a piece of him. Give me a minute, will ya?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  608. vicki said

    loin cloth???? Shareries////absolutely…where does the line form???


  609. Margaret said

    Loin cloth, where, where? lol. I wish you all would stop changing your names, I had a hard enough time keeping track of you when I knew who you were. Finally figured out how to do those postcards, at least on one side. One out of two ain’t bad. At least it means I won’t have to keep writing all that stuff over and over again. Amazing what small things make you happy, isn’t it?

  610. not changing THAT story – Darkness Falls is as is – I was talking about MT story…

    ans as for the picture – I got my log ins mixed up – I have a new name pic under the LWILDSTAR log in – so I will log out now and log back in under that name so you can see it.

  611. lwildstar said

    ok now check out my new name picture – this is the one I was refering too in the above Nightwalker post – confused myself…not a difficult thing to do!

    MARIE LAVEAU ๐Ÿ™‚ said, Iwildstar*** Blood Price part 1, w/Sandra some chick! Hey you didnโ€™t add another part to the story since whatโ€ฆ.. Sunday? With the wrist licking, can ya tell I LIKED that part for some reason, very sexy. Order of the YUM!!!

    Nope I didn’t add anything to Darkness Falls – no changes yet – I was refering to MY demon story – again, confused things…
    So you like the wrist licking uh? Personally that was one of my favorite parts too….it just came to me that Henry would want to “play” with Vicki a little, and it just seemed like a sexy playfull thing to do….so Henry, like him sniffing her.

    Ok in the next short story, what do you think of me bringing Kel back? a sequel maybe?

    Well I am on the phone with my sister – listening to her so I guess I should pay some attention to her. Let me log off and I’ll check back in a bit. Maybe….sigh….

  612. lwildstar said

    ok – well its quiet here – it dosent look like my siser is going to let me off the phone anytime soon, and its already 9:15 – so I am going to log off for the night
    Talk at you in the morning!
    Happy Henry Dreams my Hens
    Happy Mike dreams My minxes
    do we still have Vixens? Happy Vicki dreams To you!

  613. lwildstar said

    siser? ok I really can’t type – SISTER….on and on and on …. how do you make a scraming smilie face? :O

  614. Laurel said

    lwildstar – How long have you been alone in here? Or did you already leave.
    Of course, I get here when everyone is gone.

  615. Laurel said


  616. Laurel said

    :0 ๐Ÿ˜Ž :-p

  617. I’m still here – finally got my sister off the phone – I hung up! I lover her really, but I can only stand so much!

  618. oh – Luarel in case you didn’ know Nightwalker is Wildstar

  619. Laurel said

    hello? is this thing on…or did I chace everyone away?

  621. Laurel to get the tounge you need the capitol P

  622. Laurel said

    Man, I am so far out of the picture. I go away for a couple of days and you all have an identity crisis!
    How will I ever get it all straight again.
    I’ve got to run out for a while. No body move!

    love ya’ gals!

  623. lwildstar said

    ok since I’ve seemed to have chased everyone away I’m going to leave too….

  624. lwildstar said

    Do we have you in the email list – we’re going to have to play a round of the nmae game again…

  625. Hey Laurel and Wildstar,

    Laurel how are you doing?? Missed you and the Moonbeam, I hope your family is well also. Sorry again for your loss.

    Oh did you get to see the card yet?? It’s awesome huh?

  626. lwildstar said

    —– and to anyone with the answer —–
    .. and I need to ask again, is LIFETIME only providing ONE episode per week from now on, when episode 13 comes on, or is that just for the formerly double repeat sessions of eps 1-12..?

  631. Madonna said

    My understanding is that the one a week is for the new episodes. I haven’t heard anything else about them repeating the first twelve.

  632. msgypsy said

    Okay, bloggren, I’m hot and tired and need to get to bed (once “Eureka” is over. But I found this video on YouTube and while it has nothing overt to do with Blood Ties, I think you’ll all see why I thought of the show when I came across it.

    BTW, there are several errors in the video but there’s one that just whopped me upside the head and then downside it again. I’ll let you guess which one it is.

    ‘Night, bloggerini. I’ll try to stay up to date tomorrow!

  633. Vapor said

    Diz (regardless of what your name is now, i’m calling you Diz- FOREVER)- “Put out sistaโ€™” Please tell me you DID NOT JUST SAY THAT! OMG! I about died laughing! Copulation now this! And prtfvr called ME a hound dog! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I love ya!)

    If it would make it any better Madonna, I can go back to my original name. I just like this one. So mysterious and … superpowery. *giggles* It’s my “when they made x-men they forgot me” consolation prize. ^_^ (Hugh Jackman *purrrrr*)

    Loin cloth? YOU HAVE HENRY IN A LOIN CLOTH! Wow, and I thought the speedo I was going ot be playing w/soon was risque. WAY TO GO!

    Laurel- how are you doing love? (((HUGS))) how’s the fam? Moonbeam?

  634. Laurel said

    Thank you to everyone for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. Moonbeam came up with my husband and girls for the funeral on Monday. She and my hubby went back to work this morning and the girls and I will leave tomorrow evening. It has been somewhat stressful but we have had a chance to visit with family members we would not have otherwise seen. My brother and his wife and two of their children drove to central Washington from Kansas City area and we have had a lovely visit, reminising about all of the summers we spent with our grandparents. All of the grandchildren have such lovely memories, and we were reminded of the tremendous blessings we have been given.

    Gypsy, it looks like I will be back in town late tomorrow evening. I have to get in touch with my boss to see about catching up on what I missed. I could probably still meet with you Thursday or Friday. I’ll leave you an e-mail after I talk to her tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜›

  635. Rifkind said

    A late night drive-by post…
    Power is back on at the house.. and I am desperately trying to get caught up with email and the blog!

    Henry , the window is open! Hee Hee

  636. *sigh* Just a quick drive by posty. No time now. Probably not until late this afternoon. But I SO want to see Kyle in a loincloth! *drrrooolll* If anyone wants my email, just let me know and I’ll throw it at you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Heh. Wish that would work for me. Usually I just see Henry biting my neck…and every other vamp included. I swear, they all line up just to take a bite of me. *g* What? Do I look like a vamp slurpee to anyone? Huh? Geez…..

    Ugh. Got a stupid one hour long meeting at 10. That means I’ll miss my fifteen minute break. I’d much rather miss the meeting. *eg* And I still like my pic. SO fits my mood. Grrrrr….

  637. lwildstar said

    Ok now who is Blood Drinker!?
    Now you see why we need another round of the Nmae game – i’m losing track!
    Finally got caught up on the emails – sorry just read them only replyed to two – there were just too many of them!
    ok – we have an early morning meeting and I must go…
    talk at you later!

  638. Vapor said

    blood drinker- prtfvr? is that who it is? I think so, but not sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hate this, I can’t check email or anything at work unless i go to their “cyber cafe” (three computers in the cafeteria).

    Oh, i was thinking…we should probably change our names back eventually ’cause if Kyle would come on here after recieving his card he won’t konw who most of us are. Might think the card was a joke or something instead of sincere.

  639. lwildstar said

    we could do an AKA on the posts.
    Example – when I log in as Nightwalker01 I can AKA “I am LWildstar” in the post….and visa versa…just a thought –
    I know Iknow I’m suposed to be in a meeting, but I’m waiting for a tech to call me back – so i may be exempt from having to sit in…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ok I’ll go back to work!

  640. Madonna said

    Vapor (Anzia), lwildstar (nightwalker),
    I dont mind the name game I was just curious as to how it started.
    Now I’ll have to think about who my alter ego is going to be and no Himmie it won’t be Donna Jean

    Anzia you make a good point about not using the different names for too long in case Kyle does decide to stop by. BTW…. Do you think you’re going to like work?

  641. Heh. That would be me aka Vampgrl aka Henry’s Girl ๐Ÿ™‚

  642. prtfvr said

    Don’t worry about me. I’m never changing my handle. I never know who I’m talking to here any more. There’s some kind of identity crisis going on. I wait until I know who it is to reply. Wouldn’t want to reply to a trouble-maker by accident. ๐Ÿ™‚

  643. Maddie Mo said

    Good Morning!!!

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments on Maddie, she is the love of my life ( just don’t tell her daddy, he still thinks it is him). I just wasn’t sure if I had responded to everybody on email and didn’t want anyone to think I was being a snob. Poor thing has a little summer virus right now. She feels great all day till it’s time to go to sleep and then she feels yucky.

  644. Maddie Mo said

    oh and Prtfvr– Henry in the loin cloth— will that be posted on Hen’s????? Please please please

  645. Danae said

    I want Henry in a loin cloth! Please! Please! Please!

    Buongoirno Ladies.

  646. Margaret said

    Funny how things come full circle back to Blood Ties. I was complaining to the main post office because my carrier hadn’t picked up my post cards for two weeks. The first time I talked to a male route supervisor, he was supposed to call back and didn’t. I called for him this morning and he was out. Got a very nice lady who asked me if I did this every Saturday (mailing post cards) and I told her yes for the most part as I was trying to get additional epiosodes for a TV show. She naturally asked what show could be that important? So naturally, I just had to tell her, directed her to the Lifetime site and told her she had to call me back tomorrow after she watched it. Seems that she likes vampires (used to watch Angel), score, another bits the dust and is turned……to Henry. I did tell her that Vicki does kick but so I didn’t just tell her how pretty Henry is. lol.

  647. Madonna said

    Good morning Maddie Mo, Dani, Margaret!

    Margaret You go girl!!!

  648. Margaret said

    Dizey: I finally figured out how to do post cards on my printer (at least the message part, still have to work on the mailing address). Started out with an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet, reduced the margins down to where I had a 4 X 6 size, placed a text box on in and reversed the direction of the text. Put it in my top feed and it worked like a charm, FINALLY. Good thing too, never heard back from the supervisor in Pakistan.

    As soon as I can figure out how to put him in a loin cloth I’ll post it! Right now it’s just in imagination land. Very tasty. Gotta make sure he keeps his legs apart (HEY! cut that out) because he’s bow-legged or appears to be a little bit. Not that you’d get past the loin cloth but still, a man’s gotsta have legs!

  650. prtfvr said

    Oh, and if I WERE to pick an X-Men handle it would be Phoenix. I have three of them tattooed on my body so it seems logical.

  651. Maddie Mo said

    Prtfvr– are you still not getting email from me?? I really don’t know what is happening there.

  652. Danae said

    I am really not sure what my X-Men name would be. I have thought long and hard about it and can come up with nothing.

  653. Madonna said

    If I had to choose I guess Iโ€™d be Mystique. Midnight blue is my favorite color and I like the the idea of being mysterious.

  654. Chery said

    Good morning BT Addicts!

    Here we are closer to October and still no word. This is becoming very stressful. Having said that I am not giving up until we hear one way or the other. It is just nice to know you are all with me in the same boat, (hopefully not the Titanic) LOL
    anyway, off to write more postcards.

    Margaret: I “turned”my postal carrier also…………

  655. prtfvr said

    Maddie: It’s really weird. Sometimes I get them and sometimes I find out about them when the next person replies. I see my name in the distribution list so I know I’m in there. And it doesn’t think you’re spam because I do get some of them. Curiouser and curiouser.

    And today’s prtfvr update? Day is going well but I have a splitting headache. I guess all the planets must be aligned for me to have a trouble free day. Oh, and maybe the Bob Marley isn’t helping. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  656. **DIZEY1** said

    Bon Jour mes amis !! Comment allez vous?

    Good going Margaret, Chery on your conversions.

    **Z** Vapor I’ll always be Diz and glad you seem to be enjoying your job , kick any butts yet??

    Prtfvr are you betta today ??

    Loved seeing all of your faces, and I can’t wait to hear a voice to go along with them. So badly I find myself wanting to pick up the phone and call ya’ll. LOL !! ๐Ÿ˜€

  657. **DIZEY1** said

    Prtfvr like “We me Jamin’ ” ??

  658. **DIZEY1** said

    that’s supposed to be “BE JAMMIN” hey I wanted to ask about your tat’s and what they were. I’m thinking about getting one and Eric (bro.) has pepps who do them I really want one.

  659. prtfvr said

    Well, you can see my dragon in the picture with Spike (poodle) and on the other side of that is a phoenix. Plus, I have phoenixes (?) on my lower back. Oh yeah, I’m a dirty girl alright! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Now I’m onto Ring My Bell. Oh man, the 70s! They sucked SO bad!

  660. lwildstar said

    your X-Man name doesn’t have to be an X-man – think of what you would want to called if Prof. X called on you to join the team! hey they could be our code names in Elder Hostal
    be right back – computer emergency the temp needs me!

  661. Danae said

    Diz-you have my number. You call me whenever. I have a tattoo of a butterfly on my back left shoulder. I also have my nose pierced.

  662. Margaret said

    Madonna: I’m still in awe of your card. All the work that had to have gone into it. Thank you for doing it. I’m sure he’ll enjoy it.

  663. lwildstar said

    ok I’m back!
    Can’t wait till they hire a permanent replacement for the admin job I vacated – and then I’ll have to retrain the office to got to her/him……I run the office more or less so they just refuse to seek help with anyone else! I guess thats good?

    I wish i could get a tatoo – the doc says my imune system is so low that I would be asking for infection – I want a bat flying over the moon – I have a great picture of one……small enough/ or placed so that it doesn’t show at work….I guess I’ll have to think on that a while.
    Ok I guess I should log off for a while , go check my email, then I’ll check back in before I exit lunch!

  664. Maddie Mo said

    My tattoo is on my back right shoulder, a rose and a rose bud tied together with ribbon. Or as my husband would say I have the tramp stamp ( any tat on the back of a girl).

  665. lwildstar said

    hey just popped over to LT – did anyone get a chance to read the artical clyver posted about BloodTies premering in London? – it was pretty good.

  666. **DIZEY1** said

    Dani, Maddie, Prtfvr, very cool my illustrated friends. I was supposed to do it before my last b’day just giving myself a deadline. I’d love to have Kat Von D do me a tat, OMG she’s such a phenomenal artist ๐Ÿ™‚

  667. **DIZEY1** said

    Danae I did see that cute little diamond ? stud in your pic. My bro. Eric the band boy and Rob actually have quite a few, and Eric got a new one about 2 wks ago, very cool and colorful.

  668. Madonna said

    Thank you again. Yeah it was a lot of work, but (I know this sounds wierd) I felt like I was making it for a friend(s) including you all. That always makes things a little easier.

    BTW….. Kyle was asked in one of his interview if he has ever had anything sent to him that stands out. His answer was no and that the floor was open. Do you ladies think our little birthday package will accomplish that?

    I think the number of countries it will be shown in is a good sign.

    No tattoos here nor will there ever be. Although some are beautiful they are far too permanent for my taste.

  669. **DIZEY1** said

    Ooooh Madonna I think ours will definitely stand out and of course because we included his child ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Catch ya’ll when I get back from lunch.

  670. Danae said

    I definitely think our gift will stand out.

  671. Danae said

    And I want several more tattoos. Maddie I have heard them labeled tramp stamps no matter where they are on a female. I find it funny that it is perfectly fine for a guy to get one and not get flack for it but if a girl to gets one she is a tramp.

  672. Danae said

    I thought the nose ring was so small it wouldn’t be seen in pictures. Good to know that it can.

  673. Egads. No tats for me. Not that I wouldn’t like one…but I have no tolerance for pain. At all. And this is my new name for a bit. I’m stickin’ to it. Makes me sound creepy…hehe

    And I can’t believe you guys didn’t figure out it was me. I figured mentioning Marcus and vamp slurpee would’ve given myself away…but I guess not. Heh. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  674. Danae said

    I knew it was vampgrl. Your name had something to do with blood or vamps. It wasn’t to hard for me to figure out. My tattoo didn’t hurt one bit. Not even when she went over the bone.

  675. Maddie Mo said

    Danae-I completely agree. Such a double standard. My husband actually likes mine, he just teases me that I have the stamp. He says it jokingly and with love. I think all the time I would like to get more. Maybe a set of punture wounds on the wrist????

  676. Danae said

    Good idea! I want my puncture wounds on the neck. Right over the carotid artery.

  677. Maddie Mo said

    I just had a horrible experience at lunch. My friend and I were at the local China King and the guys from the Army Recruiting office came in. The way they were acting towards the women in the restaurant made me feel bad about myself and the way I look right now. I couldnโ€™t even get up to get a drink refill I was so uncomfortable. I haven’t felt this insecure since high school.

  678. Madonna said

    Hey Maddie,
    What were the jerks doing?

  679. Danae said

    How were they acting and what were they saying?

  680. Maddie Mo said

    you know it was just the way they were looking at the girls and making their little comments to each other. I didn’t really hear their comments it was just the way they were carring themselves. You know and when the young skinny girls walked in they had to do the wink wink nudge nudg thing. Or when not so young or not so skinny girls would come in the looks they would exchange. I don’t know why it made me uncomfortable it just did.

  681. Maddie Mo said

    I guess I just felt like I wasn’t young or skinny so therefore I was not worthy!

  682. Madonna said

    I’m sorry they made you feel so bad. I can’t stand it that guys can be such jerks. You’ve missed our other conversations about stuff like this. Both lWildstar and I have both had Moooing men experiences.

  683. lwildstar said

    maddie Mo – Sooo Not True! those kind of guys just don’t know what they are missing!

  684. lwildstar said

    unfortunatly – we all get the mooing guys in one form or another at some point!

  685. **DIZEY1** said

    Maddie that makes me so angry , you should call the recruitment office and tell them aboutit. That makes other soldiers look bad too, I understand the not feeling worthy thing. Such a$$es huh??

  686. Maddie Mo said

    I hate men that have this image of what they think a woman should be. And these were not young guys I would bet they were in their mid to late 30’s. You would think by now they would have some manners. Or their mamma’s would have taught them better. I wanted to ask them if they acted like that around their mamma’s

  687. prtfvr said

    My favorite is being thought unworthy by a guy no woman wants either!

  688. prtfvr said

    Do you know how small Kyle must be – not THAT! Anyhow, he seem’s small on screen, can you imagine in person?! I’d feel like something out of Raccoon City standing next to him!

  689. prtfvr said

    Actually, I like my men a little bigger. Keanu was the most thin obsession before Kyle but really, I’m more an LL Cool J/Ving Rhames/Michael Clark Duncan kinda girl.

    Oh, and I LOVE Bruce Willis!! He’s a little on the small side too but I bet he’s worth the climb!

  690. msgypsy said

    A little over a year ago I was on the light rail on my way home and there were a group of young guys across the aisle from me. They were horsing around and making all kinds of lewd and annoying noises. The elderly man sitting next to me asked them to please hold it down (I suspect his hearing aid was overloading, poor fellow!) and they replied that they were just back from Iraq where they had been fighting for that man’s freedom and he could damn well back off and let them be. Then they spotted a pretty girl out their window, waiting for a train going the other way from the station we were in. One of them hopped off the train and (from what I could tell from later cell phone conversations these guys were having with him) followed her to her stop and best I can tell he then reported back where she had gone. I’m not sure what they planned to do with that information but the lot of them hopped off the train at the next stop and went to wait for a train going the other direction. The elderly man alerted the driver of the train, who apologized and said there wasn’t much he could do since it was all supposition and by then happening outside the train.

    That night I blogged about the incident, and my friend Ian who is in the National Guard and was then preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. He said that, unfortunately, there are creeps like that in the military. The Army, at least, pays lip service to trying to keep the soldiers well behaved but when not only other soldiers but officers behave that way it’s difficult.

    I’m sorry, Maddie Mo, that you had to deal with that, but at least you can assure yourself that people like Ian are in the military, too, and that those creeps are not “all that they can be.”

    Lunch is almost over and I’ve wasted it WORKING! ARGHHH!

  691. Maddie Mo said

    I kind like the line backer kind of build myself. tall and broad with arms as big as my thighs. okay well maybe not that big. but I have date all types over the years.

  692. Maddie Mo said

    I know their are good guys in the Army. I was an army wife for 4 years and met a lot of wonderful people. It was merely a coincedence these men happened to be in uniform.

  693. **DIZEY1** said

    I too LOVE Bruce Willis I like that cocky give em’ hell attitude he’s got and I think he’s very cool, even more since he shaves his head.
    Keanu, he’s an awesome actor loved “Constantine” GREAT movie, The Lake House, I liked and would watch again “Speed”. Oh Sweet November was on last night.

    It’s hard to pick a guy since all I see in my head is **HENRY**

  694. Margaret said

    You know I could overlook Kyle being so small if he could overlook me being so big. lol Besides ladies, remember in the Roman days that women who were romanesque were coveted. Remember the backlash about models being too skinny over in Spain. We’re not there yet but I think one of these days we might be.

  695. **DIZEY1** said

    Damn skippy Margaret !! Skinny BADDD, Svelt, Veluptuous (sp) ME GOOD!!!

  696. Madonna said

    Ladies if fat is good then I’m sexy as hell!

  697. Margaret said

    Dizey: I have a friend at work whose husband works at the Space Center. A couple of weeks ago Bruce Willis brought his band to the Space Center, played for the audience and they ran Armagedon for the audience. Her husband got to hang out with Bruce Willis, someone took a photo, so they do have that. Her husband said they hung out in Bruce’s camper and he was funny as heck. Seemed to be a very nice guy. The security company that does Bruce’s security and other celebrities approached the guy’s supervisor and asked if he was interested in moving to Oregan and doing security. He turned it down flat, I thought my girlfriend was going to clobber him.

  698. **DIZEY1** said

    Ya know who wants a bony girl? First they look breakable, I’m tough and durable .

    Yes Madonna we are sexy girls ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Woohoo !!!

  699. **DIZEY1** said

    Dennis Quiad and his band were here a mnt or two ago and they played “The Big Easy” afterwards. Netflix had that advertised and I saw the thing about Bruce. I’d go with him anywhere he’d ask me to go ๐Ÿ˜‰

  700. Danae said

    Maddie Mo-Keep your head up. You are beautiful. That is why I hate hanging out in bars. Even though I am not skinny I still have guys that ogle me and I hate it. It is one of the worst feelings to be looked at like that.

    Time to go home girls. Chat with ya tomorrow. Ciao!

  701. **DIZEY1** said

    Bye Danae , see ya tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  702. **DIZEY1** said

    Hey ya’ll find it’s getting slower to post??

  703. Maddie Mo said

    I guess I’m having baby weight issues today. I was never skinny before but I gained 80 lbs between the fertility treatments and being pregnant. Unfortunately Maddie only weighed 5 lbs so I didn’t lose much there, and I’m still carrying a great deal of the rest of it around with me. My friend John( who used to be big into weight lifting and steroids and since he has quit all that puffed up) always says ” Fat is where is’t at”.

  704. Maddie Mo said

    thanks Danae– have a good night and be safe

  705. **DIZEY1** said

    Maddie ,
    I wish I could use the baby fat issue , unfortunately no babies here. I need to
    get my ass out of bed tomorrow and go to the gym. I have not gone in about 2 wks now and have been beating myself up for it and that don’t work either. Once I’m up and dressed I’m good to go it’s when that daing alarm goes off @ 4:30 AM that I can talk myself right out of getting up. I was so motivated but the heat sucks and I’m just dawdling. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ BAD ME ๐Ÿ˜‰

  706. I missed the tattoo conversation. Oh poop. I’ll share anyways. I have one tattoo at the moment. It is on my right hip. I designed the tattoo myself.

    I have a few more in the works. The one I am most excited about is my thigh piece. I want to get Freddy Kruger’s claw. (huuuge horror movie fan)

  707. Margaret said

    Dizey, Maddie: I wish I could use the baby fat issue too, unfortunately, I don’t think that will fly since my baby is now 21. lol.

  708. vicki said

    hey all

    I live by one simple rule…never go out with a man whose ass is smaller than mine. LOL>….which means Kyle and I are not meant to be. HEHEHHE

    I like some muscle….but not the bodybuilder type..and the skinny lean type makes me feel even fatter than I am. (my husband has skinny legs…my thighs are so bad I dont even wear shorts during the summer if I can aviod it.

    ANyway…I did see that pic of Henry and Vicki with him on her neck…I am hoping it is from an episode coming soon.

    BTW…finally got to see most of History of Violence…just enough to see Kyle get the crap beat out of him…not nice!!!!!!!!

  709. Margaret, I’m 23 and my mother still blames me for any weight she gains.

  710. vicki said

    no tats..I am not brave enough for that….Besides I have this mental image of me at 60 yrs old trying to explan it to my daughter…

    HEHheh Well honey I was turning 40,,,and a big fan of this tv show….LOL

  711. Maddie Mo said

    Diz & Margaret– I shouldn’t use it as an excuse. I should get my ass to the gym and do something about it, but right now there are not enough hrs in the day. I should just ignore stupid boys that have no clue. Thanks to you all for making me feel better.

    I am out of here for the night ladies so… I will catch up with you all in the morning.

    Love ya!!!

  712. **DIZEY1** said

    Lady A , nice tat and is it an eyeball?? Very cool ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Vicki you rock I love the no man w/an ass smaller

  713. yep it is an eye with the lids pierced open. I designed that piece when I started college. I honestly hadn’t slept in days because I was afraid that I’d forget to do something and fail all of my classes. I got over the initial shock of college, but the image stuck with me, and now it’s a part of me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  714. **DIZEY1** said

    Lady A, Very cool I like it. Maybe I can get you to design me a tat you’re very artsy too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Maddie , I hope you don’t think that was a slag (as Vicki and Henry say) about baby weight. None intended sweetie love ya!

    Catch ya’ll when I get home, be good and “Wear something nice”

  715. Does a pair of mens boxers count as something nice?

  716. Arrowyn said

    Per BloodTiesCentral news and updates: 2007-08-15:

    “Lifetime currently has no plans to run a marathon of the first 12 episodes of Blood Ties in September.”

    I haven’t had a chance to read this blog for a day or two, so is this old news to all of you?

  717. lwildstar said

    You guys got busy after I left work…

    Just got back from the allergist – he wouldn’t give me my shots because I have a summer sore throat – I told him it was just from the allergies and he wouldn’t believe me….oh well any more I can’t tell if the treatments are helping any. So I stopped on the way home and got a chi latte to make my throat feel better.

    I have no excuss anymore for the weight either – I’m no longer on the meds that caused the weight gain (haven been for 20 years), I have a tred mill (rarely use), and when I was out of work I dropped 20 pounds – now of course that was due to depression and I put 15 pounds of it back on….but if I am getting appreciative looks from some one like Paul, then baby I’m happy the way I am – and unlike the guys in highschool I KNOW he’s not looking at me that way thinking “shes easy” I can’t even get him to go on a real date! Besides I got on the elevator to leave work and this gor-ge-ous man got on and he started flirting with me! ….oh I went all highschool (Brain shut off)… and damn I didn’t find out if he worked in the building or if he was just visiting! ( he was kind of a cross between Jason Stathem and Bruce Willis)Doofus big time….so now I’m going to have to stop the elevator on the that floor every once in awhile to see if he’s around…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll need a new obsession after Paul quits.

    Well I think I’ll go have dinner now – still haven’t gone for groceries so I have no idea if I have anything – be back later!

  718. lwildstar said

    so now who is – Arrowyn!
    And you wanted to know why I want to play the name game again!

    And you are…..?

  719. Vapor said

    Okay, so, work news: I’m in training (on page 55 of our 150 pgs training manual) and am bored outa my mind. Staring at a computer and NOT being able to chat or check here or my mail for 8 hours should be a form of torture in Hell. I’ll start calling next wed so, ask me then if I like/hate/am kicking butt. *sigh* kinda worried ’bout that though (the calling not butt kicking)

    True, totally could do aka’s.

    I love how I started the x-men name thing. …or did Tango ’cause she named me? TOTALLY COOL GUYS!

    prtfvr-phoenix huh. That’s cool. Where?

    I’d TOTALLY Get a tat…actually, i’m not sure why I don’t have one already. I’d also pierce my bellybutton if I could wear shirts that showed it off. (that’s actually a promise to myself- in an attempt to lose weight)
    AKA “Anzia”
    Kaiser Sose….POOF. She’s gone

  720. Arrowyn said

    Sorry, sorry, sorry. I was so anxious to tell you people what I read about the not!reruns that I forgot my manners. I am A MAJOR LURKER, that’s who I am (or have been until now). Since I’m a stranger to you all, it’s obvious I’ve never posted here before (or anywhere else, for that matter). Although I posted the not!reruns info on the LT board, too.

    I am as obsessed as you all are with BT, and especially with Henry. I’ve been waiting for my application to the BT wing of the Clinic, but I suppose there’s a loooong waiting list to get in. I don’t have much time at work or home to read the posts, so I skim like a lot of you do. And being online that is not work-related is a no-no where I work. However, I’m pretty good at keeping the mouse hovering over the tab that goes to a blank Word page.

    I live in Beaverton, Oregon, single, and when I get a little more comfortable *being* here, I’ll tell you how old I am. I feel like I know you all, but not *that* well. I’m not used to posting (just lurking!), so I don’t know what else to say.

  721. Madonna said

    Yay! We’ve got another one. Welcome Arrowyn! Don’t worry I’m actually one of the shy ones too.

  722. Chery said

    welcome Arrowyn! We are all obsessed/addicted so it is o.k.

    I wonder why Life Time is not going to run the marathan of the first 12 episodes?

    This show is going to be a hit all over the world and it appears LifeTime is not on the ball.

  723. Madonna said

    I really hope you enjoy your job. During college I worked for Staples taking orders for delivery by phone. I did not even have to call people and I loathed every minute of it.

  724. vicki said


    Dont worry there is always room here at the BT wing of the Betty Ford Clinic…of course we dont really want to get our stay may be permenant. HEhehhe
    wow Oregan…never been that far west…is it all mountains and such??

    Thanks DIzy…but I cant claim that I thought of that line…saw it in a movie..bonus points for anyone who knows the movie….

  725. WELCOME..ARROWYN! (I thought maybe someone had changed their name again)
    Soon enough you’ll feel right at home here. I was a long time lurker on the Blood Blog – but everyone just seemed so in tune with not just the show but with each other – I took the plunge, and now I’m a regular.
    So have you read any of our fanfic? Have you gone to HenrysHens yet ?(A must) have you checked out the Blood Moon Site? ….did I leave any thing out?
    I alwasy forget something……..
    Stop by anytime! the more the merrier!

    Vapor – At least your manual is ONLY 150 pages! I’m only as far as page 100 in the training manual for the program for the new position (Thank goodness they had started dumping work on me before they gave me the new job) and I think that is only chapter 4 of 11……Its like learning a new language. And I just found out they want to “step things up!” so that the girl I am currently working under can transfer back to the home office!….aug! I can’t blame her for wanting to leave – she only lives 15 minutes from there and she has a 1 &1/2 hour commute to our location. But I’m not ready! Oh well, I’ll muddle through.

    FYI – you’ll be seeing me less during the day – I’ve heard through the grapevine (from my buds in IT) that the company is seriously considering installing spy ware on our system so they can track who’s sneeking online when they are not suposed to….all because a few people downloaded some stuff they weren’t suposed to (naughty, naughty)…so I’m going to start practicing restraint now…but its so hard to stay away! the blog calls to me! “I wonder what they are talking about”, “whos doing what”, “has anyone heard anything yet?” you know the routine. Just one more symptom of BloodTiesitis!

    ok – I’m going to go work on my writing – and watch Ghost Hunters

    Night guys – luv ya

    Darn it…I was going to host a party….popcorn…Henry pops…wine..(red of course) pillows to chew on..(since we cant have Henry to chew on) pj’s and lots of chocolate….Hey are screwing up my plans for a night of fun, food, and endless Henry lusting….

  728. Arrowyn said

    Thanks for the welcome, people. Warm feelings right back ‘atcha.

    Vicki — Oregon’s got her share of mountains, which include a couple of volcanos, only one of which is active (we hope). No blast offs — that was in Washington (Mt. St. Helens). What we have is green, green, green! Lots of green trees and grass and lots of rain to make them that way. If any of you have never been to the western half of Oregon, please come visit. But, no offense, please don’t move here. We’ve got enough population growth and traffic as it is.

    Nightwalker01 (lwildstar, right?) — I’ve read some fanfic and I’ve been to HenrysHens (but I couldn’t log in). I’ll try again. I don’t know about the Blood Moon site. Do you have an address or link? I think I’ve got most of the major BT sites in my Favorites and I check them almost everyday for updates. That’s how I found out about the not!reruns. I really don’t know what TPTB at LT are smoking. Throwing away such good marketing! Oh, well, pet peeve.

    Well, it’s past time for me to go home. Thanks again for the warm welcomes. I’ll be baaaaack!

  729. Annalaise duChat said

    Good Evening All,

    I just stopped in to say hi before I got back to writing.

    Welcome Arrowyn– I really like your name! Cool!

    Things have been really hectic both at work and at home so I haven’t had time to participate much.

    I apologize to those of you who are waiting to find out what happens to Keiron. After that last big spurt of creativity I’ve been experiencing a little writers block. I’ve written a couple pages but it’s been a bit of a struggle and I’m not sure if I’m happy with it or not. I’m going to give it a try tonight and see what happen.

    I was just looking at the catalog for our local community college and they have an all day writer’s seminar that I’ve been wanting to enroll in for years . I’ve almost got myself talked into it. It’s on Saturday this year so I don’t have to miss time from work, although it’s the same day as the BIG fund raiser for my daughter’s marching band so I will probably be accused yet again of being a horrible Mother. That’s the story of my life these days. I am taking the time to do some things that I want to do, and not spending 100% of my time on the family so I’m a terrible Mom.

    I keep telling myself some day she will be in my shoes and understand. I the meanwhile though it’s very hard because when she’s unhappy, everybody’s
    unhappy. You know what I mean?

    Wow, there really must be something in the Oregon water, Arrowyn! I think this is the most represented state on the blog. There’s me in Portland (I work in Forest Grove), Laurel in Tigard, Elizabeth in … Wilsonville? And Moonbeam2016 whose city I’m not sure of, and you in Beaverton. I think we need to have a special meeting of the Oregon Bloody Ford Clinic. We could all meet at Thngs From Another World ( in Milwaukie (which has the distinction of being inconvenient for all of us) followed by luncheon (we’d have to do this on a Sunday) at Amadeus Manor. ( (I’ve been to the one in Lake Oswego; they’re only open for dinner except on Sunday they have a brunch.) Or maybe we can find an affordable place for lunch instead….

    I’m home but must leave for rehearsal now. Behave yourselves, blogkids. No wild parties while I’m gone or, if you must, be sure to clean up before I get home. Hee hee!

    BTW, I refuse to change my handle (Actually, I can’t) and I fully support prtfvr in her refusal. We will be STRONG!

    Arrowyn, if you’re familiar with the SCA, our local Barony is called Three Mountains for what used to be an obvious reason. The folks in Stromgard (the Barony in Clark County directly north of us, for those who are unfamiliar with the region) sometimes refer to us as Two and a Half Mountains.

    Break a leg Gypsy ๐Ÿ˜‰ No fair on the gang thing you east coasters got going ๐Ÿ˜€

    Welcome Arrowyn (cool handle) glad you chose to jump in the water’s fine!

    Doc duChat , power to you my sista’ ! Mom’s rock , and I sometimes ya gotta say………TOUGH!

    Vicki my diva I’m with you , already have the concessions all I need now is HENRY ๐Ÿ˜‰

  733. Arrowyn said

    Apparently, I’m not ready to go home and leave you guys yet.

    Annalaise – Thanks. I like my name, too. Back in the AOL times, a friend and I were trying to come up with something that was distinctive, but felt like it represented me. So, Sagittarian (arrow) plus some letters from my real name mooshed around to sound sort of Celtic-ish = arrowynne. Your name is nothing to sneeze at. I think it’s beautiful.

    BTW, has anybody ever asked how you all chose your screen names (if they aren’t your real names)? Inquiring minds want to know.

    msgypsy – I didn’t realize so many of us were from Oregon and in the same general area. Milwaukie is another country as far as I’m concerned, but if we’re all going to get together (and I think that’s a fine idea!), then I’ll start preparing my passport.

    Nighwalker01 – I apologize. Of course, I know about Blood Moon! I hadn’t been there for awhile. Haven’t you changed things a bit? Your things are lovely. I’ll spend more time there…when I have more time to spend.

    And now I’m really going home! Bye.

  734. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Bye Arrowyn ๐Ÿ˜€

    Dizey — for the support. Yea I’ve been having issues with her for a while. My husband tends to take her side too. So I’m the bad guy a lot. And really, I spend a lot of time with the kid, It’s just that I’m not at her beck and call 24/7 like I was when she was younger and needed me more. Heck, I should be the one complaining I haven’t seen her more that an hour a day all summer. It’s because she running not me. But I guess I’m just supposed to sit and wait and make sure I’m available when she decides she wants me. Thanks for listening. I feels good to vent a little.

    Arrowyn — Thanks, I’m glad you like my name. I was playing an online vampire game and wanted to come up with a cool “vampiric sounding” name. The Annalaise part is jumbling around my first name. I decided I needed a last name to go with it so I combined Louis’ name from Interview with the Vampire Louis duPont duLac with my last name and came up with duChat. I don’t think I will take a new name like the rest of the girls because I really like this one. I’m debating using it as my nom de plume if I ever publish my book.

    NIght Arrowyn! Nighty Night everyone!

    I’m logging off too – I’ve been lurking while writing…and now I am beat!

    My throat has gotten worse as the night has gone on – but I HAVE to go to work tomorrow since the girl I work under is in the home office for the next couple of days – and that leaves only me (sarcastic yippee), rolls eyes….

    I’ll talk to you guys tomorrow!

  737. Annalaise duChat said

    Goodnight lwildstar, I hope you feel better.

  738. lwildstar said

    thanks AduChat – I haven’t heard from you latley.

    Ok I’m off now – again!

  739. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Doc duChat, any time you need to vent, shout you’ll find an eager listener ๐Ÿ˜‰ I so love Louis, I am prejudice though (New Orleans and Anne) Interview is one of my all time favorites. I loved Brad Pitt , Kyle’s Henry reminds me a lot of Louis’ pain and struggle w/being turned. Poor baby the rats in the sewer oh and the chickens, poor Louis.

    Night Wildstar, gargle w/some warm salt water might at least relieve it a little. Get some of that Airborne I promise it works, natural immune booster and in a day or 2 you’ll feel great.

    Oh before I forget my little friends arrived today, they are smaller than they looked,so adorable. I love them and will let you know who they are when I know. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I loved Interview too. Louis is awesome but, I can’t help it Lestat just has that certain vampiric attitude. He’s my favorite. He’s just so good at being bad. My all time favorite book in the series is Tale of the Body Thief. I have a first edition copy of it signed by Ann. It’s one of my treasures. I also have a signed copy of Servant of the Bones but I didn’t like that one.

  741. Annalaise duChat said

    You know what else I have? It’s sooo cute. I have an Orange Teddy Bear from Build a Bear dressed in a Victorian vampire costume complete with teeth. Hie name is The Vampire Bearstat. He has an evil giggle.

  743. DIZEY1 :-) said


    I know my heart went out to Louis, but yes Lestat was the bad vamp that I couldn’t hate. I really loved Armand , and Antonio did a spectacular job . Hell I believed anything he’d say. Very cool on the Anne signed edition. I live here but she and I don’t exactly travel in the same circles. Where did you get it?

    I love the Bearstat, too cute.

    Ok well I’m gonna hit the hay and desperately try to get to the gym in the morning. Please god get me to the gym. Sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Sleep well, Sweet Dreams of Henry (reves doux d’Henri)

    can I just say *blah*?

    arrowyn- welcome. Welcome. put your order in for Henry Paraphenalia (my spelling sucks)…chains, pops, action toys… all the good stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and an we’re getting your room all set up.

    Okay, i’m going to *try* and go to bed. *sigh* i really REALLY wish that sleep wasn’t such a hit and miss thing for me.. makes life a LOT easier!

  745. Annalaise duChat said

    Dizey– I went to one of those book signing events at out local Barnes & Noble. I actually got to talk to her few a few seconds while she signed my 2 books. It was pretty cool.

    Good night all. I’m going to turn in soon too.

  746. Margaret said

    Ok, ladies, admit it, how many of us can say that we can recite everyone’s lines, including the villians’, in the episodes of Blood Ties by now. I need fresh Blood, no I need fresh Blood Ties. Better yet I need fresh Henry.

    Hey, Arrowyn! Hidee Ho! Love your name! Very Lord of the Rings-ish. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I used to be Vampgrl….then I did a typo and was VA then I was just V, then I was Henry’s Girl then I was Vamp Protector. On AOL I’m SpikesLittleHo…and please do NOT ask. Heh.

    Awwww!!! Too cute!!! I want one!!! Lestat has always been my fav character too. Always reminded me a bit of Spike. We should get those 2 together. *g*
    Although Tom Cruise as Lestat totally annoyed me. Stuart Townsend is my Lestat. *THUD* And my all time fav bood in the Vampire Chronicles is…of course…The Vampire Lestat. Heh.

  748. Ooops! Sorry for all the copy and pasty there. MY bad.

    only a drive by this morning – I have 5 minutes before work stars.
    My throats not any better and I just found out I get to train the temp coming in today – I’m going to see how much i can get the temp who is leaving to show her so that I don’t have to talk so much.
    I’ll check back at lunch….

    You guys are probably going to string me up for this, but I never watched Buffy. After I read the Vampire Chronicles back in the early 90’s I just could never find anything that lived up to it . The premise for Buffy sounded ridiculous so I never even tried it. The same with Laurel K. Hamilton’s books. My girlfriend gave me the first one. I read it and thought it was stupid at the time. But then about 2 years ago I reread it and was hooked. I started getting into vamps again and read her entire series. Then Henry come along, and the rest as they say is history. After I finish my novel I’m going to take Buffy out of the library and watch the whole series in one sitting. I have to wait till I’m done though, don’t want to be influenced.

    Hi Blogkin!
    Morning drive-by posting again!
    It takes me until the mornings to get caught up with the blog and everything… so far behind!

    Welcome Arropwyn! The Blood Ties Betty Ford Clinic always has room for one more BT-a-hol-ic! Our wing at the hospital is like the Tardis, so there is always room for more fans!

    I’ve never been into horror.. so have not read many vampire books.. I’ve only read one of Anne Rice’s books… a loan from a friend at work…who said that I HAD to read it.. Never watched Buffy, and only saw a couple of Forever Knight eps…
    I just this summer finally saw “Queen of the Damned” and I too love Stuart Townsend at Lestat.. I will have to see “Interview..” some day, but am so OVER Tom …
    The few times that I did see “Forever Knight”, I always loved Nigel Bennett as LaCroix

    Catch you later Sista’s !

    Welcome Arrowyn….
    You can see where I got my name :
    On that website, there are a couple of pages on HOW to get an avatar uploaded to WordPress.. That’s how this posting has the cute little pom-pom bat image… NO, it is NOT a wrapped hard candy… hee hee … it is just that the size of the icon makes it difficult to see WHAT the image is..

    BTW ladies, over at Lifetime.. I tweaked the image and added vampire fangs… at LT they let their images be larger.. so you can see that my icon is the cute pom-pom bat, and not grape candy.. My icon is the third topic down the page.. at least TODAY that is where it is located

    Annalaise duChat,
    good idea to wait to read the books until YOUR story is finished̷
