Yay! It’s September!

Only a month and a half to go. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

I think saying “Go into the light” is a little over-dramatic so how about, “We can do it, my blogkin! One foot in front of the other. That’s it! We can do it!”

Who’s croaking, “Water! Water!” back there?

    Wooohooo I’m number 1!!! Go figure , right place, right time ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Gypsy, glad the pooch is ok, and glad you’re feeling better also. I watched a little of your play, too funny I like the YMCA ish song , I’ll try and watch the rest over the weekend.

    Tango, MY SISTA’!! We have missed you and the virtual party was a howling success. I awoke with Henry on my ass BTW. He put it there himself , instead of needles he sucked the image there. (twisted I know ) that’s why you love me ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you’re back.:-D

    Doc Cree,

    May I say, props to you my Blood Sista’!!! I had a similar experience (Badd girl) in a car in a mall parking lot. We didn’t get to do the *Deed* but it was very hot and heavy and the mall police caught us and dragged us inot the office. I was soooo cut off ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I’m waaaay impressed w/the bendy trapeze dude ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž You’re on my team !!

    Anybody gone to the Blood Ties site and seen the new videos. Nice. AlisaG-email me on how to register at CityTv. margaret_32955@yahoo.com Thanks.

  3. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Maggie May I can’t make it play, **Bloody HeLL***

    Am I doing something wrong ? Did you have any problems with it??

  4. Margaret said

    Maybe the site is having a bit of a problem. It played for me but it hesistated ever so often, but still played.

  5. DIZEY1 :-) said

    **Z** sounds like you could use a good hard rub by Henry FitzRoy and maybe he could feed you some chocolate while he runs his hands aaaalllllll over your body ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oooohhhhhhwwweeee doesn’t that sound like a little piece of heaven wrapped up in brown curly hair and a magnificently carved body, oh and a glorious smile ๐Ÿ˜€ (drooooolll) ๐Ÿ˜› Sorry the job’s abit on the sucky side. Once you get the bugs out it’ll be better, I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love YA!!!

    Hey Dizey – missed my sweet Cajun Sista as well. I’ve been thinking about you alot lately with the Katrina anniversary having just passed. I’m so glad that this hurricane season has been a calm one. Just think, when Blood Ties renews we will have made it through another one. Just another reason to look forward to our new season.

    I just got through viewing the videos. I can’t wait to see these new epies. Coreen’s new do is a riot! Margaret, if you will hit the pause button and give it a couple of minutes to buffer, you can watch it uninterupted.

  7. Danae said

    Hello Bellas. I don’t know good afternoon in Italian. Wildstar I will email your story back tonight. I am at Kelly’s right now letting AMber play with her daughter and she doesn’t have Word. I am going to Chris’s later and she does have Word so I will do it from there.

    Dizey-How did Robs appointment go?

    Ok so I asked my mom about my dad’s cancer coming back and she said yes. She didn’t think it was a big deal so she didn’t say anything. Ok since I am there almost every night did she thing I wouldn’t find out? I guess things are ok now. They are going to the races tonight and Amber is sleeping over my place.

  8. Danae said

    Gypsy I am always crooking “water, water” I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff.

  9. Tango said

    Hey has anyone heard anymore about the movie Kyle was working on with Jeff Goldblume? I can’t seem to find anything about it.

  10. Danae said

    I haven’t heard anymore about it. There is nothing listed on imdb.com but that could be because it is still in the works and only paying members can access that. Maybe prtfvr will know. Has anyone seen her? I haven’t seen her on here in awhile.

  11. Anne said

    Kyle’s movie with Jeff Goldblum has been pushed back, possibly until next spring – yep, I have IMDBPro ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Blood Ties episodes on YouTube have been taken down for copyright infringement, sorry.

    MsGypsy, yes, I’m in Copenhagen.
    Heh – I can’t even remember thir …. thatmany years back.
    Some things have changed of course – we have a metro now – no nmore streetcars. Which is good as your bicycle tires could get caught in the tracks.
    But not so good as you always knew where you had a streetcar.

    I think the dentists all over the world have called on the bad toothfairies to help them – a friend of mine had a tooth ache this week, and I broke a tooth while eating a potato. So I too have a dentist’s appointment next week.

    I’m doing 5 k races Monday, Wednesday and Sunday.
    I don’t really believe it myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I’ve been a couch potato all of my life, but I guess I finally caught the running bug. I’ve been training for all of two months.

    Can’t we all just use the zip code of the Kaleidoscope address to join up on the CityTV forums? I know a few more Canadian zip codes, but using that would be sweet ..

  12. Danae said

    You broke a tooth on a potato?! How did you manage that?

  13. Margaret said

    They also want the area code for a phone number. Anybody know I good area code?

  14. vicki said

    Hey girls….

    Been awhile…school is not bad…the seventh graders are not as bad as I thought they would be…(of course it is only the first week) But so far soo good. Nobody got hurt and that’s what counts….Of course we did have a funny the first day..the sewer backed up into the kithcen and we had to leave two hours early>>>LOL what a way to start the school year.

    Anyway…hope I havent missed two much…Did we find out about the ratings for Canada.???? I am hoping for good news….Crossing fingers and toes..

    I check in later girls…

  15. Tango said

    Anne – Clearly you need a new recipe for potatoes. Mashed potatoes are always yummy, or maybe a good baked porato with butter and sour cream would be a safer choice.

    Do you know anything about this movie that he is making with Jeff? What genre? It’s been awhile, but when I did see something about it, it had Kyle billed first. I can’t even remember the name of it anymore.

  16. Madonna said

    Ummmmm…… Sisters send the bail money to this address……….

    Nahhh…… Just kidding. I haven’t been thrown in the slammer yet. We took Boo-Boo to his appt. this morning and the vet SAID that his blood work showed everything to be perfectly normal except for one liver enzyme that was just slightly elevated. It wasn’t so high that it worried him and that it could be normal for him. Now, ask me how much I trust this vet. As far as his and his assistant’s attitudes….. my mom who was with me says that that was a complete 180. He walked into the room all cheerful, tapped mine and my moms shoulders and hands, not in a sexual way, and said we looked like sisters.

    I heard from the lady from the Wool Festival yesterday and she said they are impressed with the photos of our candles and will be back in touch with us shortly to let us know whether we’re in or not. In any case, we are spending all of our free time now making a stock of our “best sellers.” Today we’re making beer candles, and trying a few new ones. I am making one, that if it turns out, it may make a nice gift for Christina.

    The vet suggested that since he seems to have such a hard time with his stomach that maybe it might be best if we give him human food, such as ground beef, turkey, chicken and cottage cheese (which he won’t eat anyway.) He says that the food we are feeding him now (Cesar) may have too much sugar in it. Is this a good idea?

    Oh, I’m a good girl but my mind is just dirty enough that when I asked if he taught you anything, what I really meant was more along the lines of Margaret’s, “I bet he was flexible wasn’t he?” (Hey, it’s been 4 years for me, I live vicariously.)

    Tango, Vicki……. WELCOME BACK! Missed you both!

    Was your conversation with your mom as bad as you thought it’d be? It has been my experience that we often build the bad scenarios up in our minds that we get anxious about them. All the what ifs you know? The reality is often far different from our active imaginations.

    How did Rob’s appointment go.

    If I am not right on time for the writer’s chat, go ahead and start without me. I’ll be there as soon as I can.

  17. Madonna said

    Hi girls,
    I just typed out a lengthy post and it looks like it has been sent to wait in limbo. I’ll check back in later to see it made it, if not I’ll recap all the finer points.

    Take care

  18. AlisaSG said

    >> AlisaG: How on earth did you register at CityTv when it asks for area codes and providences? Parish the thought, did you fib and which ones did you use so I can. lol.

    No.. what providences?? the list of places above the Canada thing?
    I selected the one for the United States.. didn’t have to fib. (LOL!)
    and I used my gmail address in the email box requested.

    anyway, I’ll e-mail it out so everyone can see it, too.
    If anyone does NOT receive this e-mail and wants it, PLEASE say so. I’m going to use the group list (which I’m not sure is actually up-to-date on my end).

    >> Anybody gone to the Blood Ties site and seen the new videos. Nice. AlisaG-email me on how to register at CityTv.

    okay, it’s 4:20-p.m. right now. I need a few minutes to copy/paste it all up
    (I was going to mention it here, but e-mail might be better, and less congesting to this blog..) ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I’ll let everyone know when it’s done, and I HOPE the info works as I’ve listed it.

  19. AlisaSG said

    sorry I missed this–

    >> Canโ€™t we all just use the zip code of the Kaleidoscope address to join up on the CityTV forums? I know a few more Canadian zip codes, but using that would be sweet ..

    I never needed to insert any zip code. That must have been on the 2nd and 3rd window screens for participating in CHUM’s contests.

    okay, now I’m wondering if I should just post the whole thing right onto this blog. anyone else want to know??

  20. Tango said

    Do you suppose this tickles? http://www.bloodties.tv/galleries

    I would think so by the smile on his face.

    I couldn’t even get to the page where the blogging was going on the citytv site. Has anyone been over there lately?

  21. AlisaSG said

    one more thing.. I’m almost finished writing up the e-mail with instructions.
    It should pop into your mailboxes with the subject line–

    Sep1,2007- CHUM registration for CityTv and SPACE

    I’m digging up everyone’s addresses (or trying to).. and then it’ll be ready to go.

    Also, for anyone asking if the web site registration for CityTV asks for
    PHONE number and a physical ADDRESS

    THAT info is for their CONTEST registration page – not for FORUM registrations.
    you can skip those pages — please see my e-mail, because I made of *special* note of it in there regarding that.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. AlisaSG said

    Okay everyone, EVERYONE who was ever in my e-mail box list is grouped together on the instructions for registering onto CHUM’s CityTv, etc.

    I got a mailer daemon back from Chelli’s address,
    ——- so Chelli – if you *really* want the instructions, someone else will have to forward it to you. It came back to me as outgoing “SPAM” … gotta love gmail and those deamons out there..! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    ——-Subject line reads——
    Sep1,2007- CHUM registration for CityTv and SPACE

    it’s from my gmail address.
    PLEASE remember.. if there’s anyone on that group mailing that requested not to be part of the endless list of replies, please remove that person’s name from the list. I don’t think my listing is up-to-date, so I’m not entirely sure who else besides Chery, Chelli, and Rifkind requested to be removed from (our more) excessive mailings.

    Rifkind, I know you’re busy, but thought I’d send it too.

    If I’ve missed anyone, please let me know here, so I can send the instructions out. Thanks!!
    (to everyone — have fun reading..!)

    PS—- the CHUM membership is good on several different forum sites.
    CityTv and Space (spacecast) are the only two that I’ve actually posted on so far.

  23. Margaret said

    I could have sworn it made it give me the province when I registered. Doesn’t matter, I got inventive and I’m registered. Now at the risk of sounding like an idot, how do I post?

  24. AlisaSG said

    I just sent another e-mail to you (birthday related — re: an error, actually)..

    I changed your name in the email address box to what you requested, but it changed it back after I sent it out! I have no idea how to get around that problem.

  25. lwildstar said

    hey guys!
    Just got in……just caught up on the posts! It looks like my missing one from last night didn’t show up (shrugs) oh well.

    Thanks Danae – I’ll look for it tonight!

    My sore throght came back – can’t beleive it…..anyway, I’ve got stuff to do but I’ll see you tonight at the chat…….

    >> I could have sworn it made it give me the province when I registered. Doesnโ€™t matter, I got inventive and Iโ€™m registered. Now at the risk of sounding like an idot, how do I post?


    it took me a while to navigate my way around and figure out how to get the forum to properly cooperate with my lack of knowledge..

    go to the Q&A web page that I gave you, and then click on the

    Select a topic. Find any person’s message (possibly if doing a reply to the last one, just click on the REPLY button in the last person’s box. There is no main reply / submit button at the bottom or the top of the page! I found that out the hard way.. agh!!!!!)

    Also, if you really, REALLY want to get educated and fancy and QUOTE someone else’s comments, follow my instructions in the
    “Bad Juju” topic (it’s on page 2) —

    I’ve renamed the topic’s subject in my message box as–

    Re: instructions to Using the “QUOTE” feature button

    Hopefully, I wrote it up so that anyone can make easy sense out of it. I typed it up this morning around (maybe something like) 3 a.m.?? OMG!!

    I got woke up by a bunch of street kids outside slamming their doors and just talking (loud enough to wake me up from a weird dream!). So I got up and stayed up. Found a plea for semi-technical posting help, and responded.. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    BTW, I couldn’t resist NOT posting the link to Kyle’s tender photo as Henry (the Delphine moment one!). So I got creative and explained my way around it. If they find Kyle as Henry in Chains from the link, I’ve already committed myself NOT to discussing the entire chocolate CHAINS stuff, until AFTER they’ve all seen the eps
    (that means —- I’ve got to wait until almost ep 9 is about to air —-
    – gotta wait until the last group sees the eps at the end of the week). ๐Ÿ˜‰

    have fun!

    Robbie update: Saw Neurologist/Seizure guy yesterday and he’s taking him off a couple of med’s that were counteracting the anti-seizure med’s, it’s a bit of trial and error to find a cocktail if you will that will work for him. He’s on like 6 or 7 different med’s some for pain, some for seizure or to reduce and hopefully soemday eliminate the seizures. One of the med’s Depakote will take months to ween him off , so we wait. He’s also ordered a CT Scan w/contrast to dbl. ck. that there are no more aneurysm’s. He can’t have an MRI because it would displace the clip in his brain on the old aneurysm. I know waaay more about the brain than I ever wanted to know ๐Ÿ˜‰ So far so good he’s going on what 3 or 4 days without one. Yayyyyy !!! I’ll keep ya’ll updated ,

    Thanx again I love ya’ll XOXOXOXOXOX

  28. Annalaise duChat said

    Hi all,

    I just signed on and posted at CityTV no problems and I didn’t need a province. Just don’t enter the contest like Alisia said. The site’s a little confusing at first but I waent to flatten view and it worked more like our blog. It seems several threads run simultaneously.

    Dizey — I’m so glad Rob is doing better.

  29. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Buon pomeriggio (Italiano for Good Afternoon)

    Just for you Daniela:

    Origin: Derived from the Hebrew Daniy’el, composed from dan “has judged,” or from dayan, “judge,” and the abbreviated form ‘el from ‘elohim, “God,” with the meaning “God (therefore) has judged” or “my judge is God.”

    this is me…Elisabetta

    Origin: Derived from the Hebrew Elisheba, composed from El “God” and sheba “seven,” which indicates perfection in numerology. Means “my God is perfection.”

    Seven’s always been one of my lucky numbers what a trip very cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  32. Cree said

    Margaret: The lead singer in a band, huh? That would have been fun, but I’m glad he told you to go home. That was very respectful of him. You wouldn’t have wanted your first time to be with some guy who probably would have never even remembered your name and who probably hooks up with a different girl every night. Gotta watch out for those band members. Trust me. Been there, done that. Don’t care to do it again.
    As far as my trapeze artist being flexible, yes he was, but unfortunately there wasn’t much room to manuver in my small little car or the bathroom stall we moved to after we got busted the first time (yes, the cop caught us more than once which is why she hauled us in), so I never got to see the full extent of his flexibility. And it really wasn’t all that great to be perfectly honest. He was hot and all, but he was ummm…..greatly lacking in a certain area of the male anatomy which wasn’t very much fun for me. And I do mean GREATLY lacking!

    Dizey: In your car at the mall parking lot?! You dirty girl, even if you did get interrupted. I’ll definately be on your team my blood sista!

    Madonna: I guess I did think you were kinda a good girl and just assumed I was the one being the dirty girl thinking you meant anything other than whether or not he taught me any trapeze tricks. I’ll know better next time that you are not as innocent as you first appear. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As far as BooBoo goes, I am glad the vet was nice to you today. And very glad we all didnt’ have to come to your rescue and bail you out of jail! Did you get a copy of the bloodwork? I am just curious which enzyme specifically was elevated and what the actual value was compared to the last blood test.

    As far as what to feed him, human food will most likely inflame his pancreas and cause pancreatitis, so I would stay clear of that. Not to make you feel bad, but to be perfectly honest with you, Ceasar’s is a REALLY bad food. It’s the equivalent of us eating McDonalds for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I would put him on either Science Diet sensitive stomach, or Iams digestive care. I like the Science Diet better. And dry food is better for them than canned. Almost all of my patients that I have put on the Science Diet sensitive stomach for chronic vomiting have done really well on it and hardly ever have any vomiting problems anymore. It works wonders. Hope that helps. Email me if you have those blood results. I am curious to see them.

    Needless to say I’ll probably be missing the writers chat tonight to…. *gasp* write!

    Can someone send me the transcripts from both chat sessions? I would really love to read through them!

    Take care all. Send some positive vibes my way. I feel like my brain has gone into melt-down mode.

    Ya’ll I may have a little combustion going on when October finally gets here. I’m reeeeal ancy ๐Ÿ˜Ž I think I’m gonna go crawl on my big empty bed and have a little Henri’ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Dizey, Girlfriend, its been so long for me, I’ve been revirginized.

  47. Margaret said

    Besides, I’m still thinking wistful thoughts about Cree’s acrobat. Just think if Henry were an acrobat. Now that would open up a whole new world of possibilities. Although as smooth as he is I don’t think he’d have to resort to being all that flexible.

  48. Danae said

    Yes I think that was Amber speack for Mom I want one of those when I grow up. She is so funny if she sees a picture of Our Boy she says That’s the vampire!” She loves them. She isn’t afraid of them. I say that is wicked awesome.

    And this is what I would do in that situation

    Leccherei il henry su e giรน tutto il senso alla parte superiore della sua testa. Lo bacerebbe dappertutto e mi dare i mondi massaggio migliore. Quando era dappertutto mi alimenterร  le fragole e le ciliege coperte cioccolato. Cadrei addormentato da esaurimento e guarderebbe sopra me tutta la notte. Appena prima che deve andare lo bacerebbe dolce e tenero e dirmi di attendere che cosa ha in deposito per il nostro seguente cronometri.

  59. My husband was telling me he watched a show last night on cable about food fetishes.

  60. She’s gone.

    Ew baked beans are so not sexy

  62. I didn’t think so either.

  65. I’m going to have to find out what he’s doing watching such things…

  66. Danae said

    I guess they have an interesting texture

  67. He says it was a documentary, Uh huh!

    okay, here’s another one. I just got brave and put in a HUGE, HUGE plug for

    — Gordon Michael Woolvett aka “Seamus Harper” of Andromeda.—

    On the bloodtiescentral // bloodlines site, there’s a link in there for an interview with Gordon Michael Woolvett. It says that Christina Cox guest-starred on Andromeda, so I had STRONG reinforcement (and *valid* enough of a reason) to post more of a BLOOD TIES connection onto a special topic created just for Gordon Michael Woolvett.

    As most of us already know, Gordon Michael Woolvett aka Seamus Harper portrays the daddy to little Sarah in BT’s episode # 4, titled “GIFTED”.

    So, the rest of the world, if it even dares to bother looking now knows about Blood Ties on Gateworld’s forum site. I put a link to the official Blood Ties main web site (not to Lifetime, but did mention that Lifetime started showing the BT series in March 2007).

    Time will tell how reactive the folks on gateworld will be to Blood Ties. They haven’t been too favorable there for Flash Gordon, and not because of Gina Holden’s role as Dale in “Flash..”, but because of the guy who plays “Flash Gordon” (several folks on there don’t like the actor, or are just saying so to stir up trouble for that series.

    Seems that whenever there is a successful program out there, if it isn’t favored (by certain persons in the scifi community), it ends up getting trashed pronto. If it is successful, as Stargate SG-1 once was, it’ll get trashed, so that some other program can consume the coveted HOT spot of — or for popularity.

    (so, yes, am I worried if BT becomes too hot? yes.. that’s why. am I worried if it stays on the bottom and struggles to maintain its identity — YES.. because of the people on this planet who have short attention spans and get pushy for their *other* favorite to knock out the one getting 15 minutes of the coveted #1 fame slot.. The hard cored BSG viewers did that to SG-1 and weren’t successful immediately; so they went into other damage control tactics.. I think the *negative* trolls/chronic complainers were actually planted there from the network itself – to prove the loyalty of SG1 viewers..

    does this sound like deja vu with LIFETIME and its Army Wives promos..?? Yes. my gut feelings believe that is what is happening, tho I would like to hope I’m wrong).

    So, please say your PRAYERS for BT’s acceptance.
    I’ll only be able to post again 2 or 3 more times at Gateworld for reminders to watch BLOOD TIES. This was sort of a last minute decision on my part, since NO one else on that site has been regularly making the effort to announce the series.
    (them folks are very stubborn and set in their ways over there!!) ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I figured since the BT topic at roddenberry.com hasn’t gone anywhere in active discussions in there, it’s time to move on to mention it somewhere else. I will continue to make announcements, when something new shows up in the BT portion (of the “Blade and other creatures of the night”) topic at roddenberry.com, but since it seems that I’m the only regular person posting anything in that topic now, I have chosen to put my efforts into other places. Otherwise, it’d be a one-person show on there, and that’s not good for the advertisers to gauge keeping the series on Lifetime or not. It doesn’t help that the ONE person (besides myself) doesn’t really like *Christian* vampires (it’s personal with her.. so I tend to tread carefully around what I’m actually saying when bringing up anything about Henry.. she does LIKE her NORMAN, tho, so, I have to encourage her to keep that POV always in sight).

    and who thought advertising (without pay) was easy..??
    actually, if anyone wants to say we’d be happy to accept an additional NEW 22 eps on top of the current 22 eps as payment
    — for doing LIFETIME’s “get the news out” — that’d be *cool*.. I think most of us wouldn’t mind about that for a return bonus.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can I tell you how much I hate getting behind on the blog? ^_^

    Diz-GREAT! Suggestion! I could totally do with a hard rub from Henry. *looks angelic & Smiles sweetly* What! I’m the original OWNER of what has become the House Ship remember…*evil smile* Besides, I still have Henry tied to a bed for all you gals know ๐Ÿ˜› I’m glad that Robbie’s been seizure free for so long.

    Tango-OF COURSE you can come. ^_^ And I am *technically* still grounded from using the phone and have been since I was in the 4th grade. ๐Ÿ™‚ And riding a bike for that matter…but I don’t have one of those so it’s less of a problem. ^_^

    Laurel-Spanish coffee? what’s that? I love COFFEE though so…i’m in it just based on that. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, when’s the outing taking place? I want to borrow that lovely number Vicki was wearing in my dance club story… ^_^

    Yes, I’m feeling pretty frisky tonight…can you tell? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So, i went shopping today! Oh, MAJOR sale going on at Kohl’s so I totally took advantage of it AND my assoc. discount ^_^ GREAT clothes! ๐Ÿ™‚ Then I went to Barnes & Nobles- which is ALWAYS a bank buster. I ended up buying two books that I’m not sure my uncle is too hot about. Yup, (get ready to roll eyes) they’re indian/hindustani in nature. One is actually a novel based on a real emperess that existed in India’s history. We’ll see if what I think of that one. I wanted it ’cause it was different than anything else I’d usually pick up. It’s called “The Twentieth Wife” and is about Mehrunnisa and her love for Prince Salim. As the title suggests she became his twentieth and final wife in his harem. There’s a sequel about what happens after he does this. It seems that Mehrunnisa became a very influencial and powerful woman because the prince married her for love and love alone. The second book is called “The Dowry Bride.” It’s about a woman who overhears her husband and mother-in-law plotting her murder b/c she hasn’t given birth to an heir and her family hasn’t pd her dowry. She ends up hiding out in a man named Kiran’s apartment and there is a huge fight against the passion they have for one another because she’s married and such. The plot seems to be basically the same (woman runs from abusive/deadly husband to old male friend and falls in love & finds freedom) but it does it in a new setting. The author was married through an arranged marriage and there’s a mini interview with her where she talks about why she writes about Dowry Murders and arranged marriages. It’s really cool, her response. I really can’t wait to sink my teeth in this one.

    BUT, I did find a book that all the Pride & Prejudice fans might want to check out (if they haven’t already). It’s called “Me & Mr. Darcy” by Alexandra Potter and it’s about a girl who is fed up with men finding her very own Mr. Darcy on a trip through England. Sounds really interesting… ^_^

    Okay, I’m done now… ^_^ Sorry, this is probably going to be VERY long… feel free to yell at me for being a windbag. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello luvs. I just got in from the Anime convention with 5 17-year olds. I got in on a fan-fic discussion that was very interesting. Much of the information applies to fan-fic across the board, so I took a few notes and laughed a lot. Manga writers have some really funny ideas!

    My feet are killing me and I am going to go soak in the tub for a while. I wish I had that spanish coffee now. Add Kalua and some other alcohol (I believe it is rum). A dollop of real whipped cream on the top makes it kind of a dessert. Of course, you still have to have chocolate (truffles are my personal choice). ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I hope all had fun at the chat. I was in Anime Jeopardy while you were there. It was pretty funny. Actually I had my i-pod in my purse and watched Heart of Fire and Norman while the kids played. I am going to have to thank my husband again for that gift. It totally made my day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh man…… Guys I’m sorry I have failed you miserably. I tried to grab the writer’s chat and save it but it didn’t work out. The only thing I was able to grab was about the last 25 or so comments for some reason? AND that was pretty much Rifkind and I winding down and saying goodnight. I figured you all didn’t want that. What did I do wrong? I told you all I was not technically inclined. (Hiding my head in shame now.) I’m going to slink off to bed now with my proverbial tail between my legs. Sorry, don’t be mad.

    OMG y’all….. Last night was one of those nights I just couldn’t sleep so at 4 in the morning I turned on the television and guess what happened to be on. Spill was on. Kyle’s first acting role. It says it came out in 1996 which would have made him 11 or 12 years old, although he looked like he was MUCH younger. Actually, it really didn’t look a whole lot like him at all. I was also surprised at what a large role he had.

    I’m going to go grab some breakfast and start making candles again. If you all don’t mind spoilers I’ll fill you in on his role when I take a break.

    Have a good morning everyone.

    Good Morning everyone!

    My knee is feeling better today………. but I have been off of it for most of yesterday.

    Thanks Margaret for asking if anyone knows the ratings for BT in Canada, on Blood Lines.
    I think that there are a lot of people who live in Canada on that site.


  83. Anne said

    Hmmm – I have Spill on DVD and I don’t think his role was that big … or was I just frustrated that there weren’t any good closeups?

    I’ve been busy today updating website – not Blood Ties related though.

    Since it was Sunday, I decided to spoil myself and have some chocolate, organic chocolate from Dagoba – 68% cocoa, with crystallized ginger with a hint of lemon. As George of the Jungle (the live version played by Brendan Fraser) would say. “Pretty DARN good!”

    hi Anne!
    I heard on the radio news something very *important* about chocolate–

    apparently, there is something in chocolate that helps lower the blood pressure. It was discovered as the result of a medical study.

    People who ate chocolate in whatever form
    (cocoa, cake, cookies, or candy — hey Wow! all C’s there! =)
    had significantly lower blood pressure than people who don’t touch the stuff. When the folks who were taking chocolate suddenly stopped taking it for a while, their blood pressure went up.

    So, it was mentioned on the radio that this is now a physical fact-find
    that CHOCOLATE is *good* for lowering a person’s blood pressure..

    I have to sort of laugh, because I take it everyday, in the form mixing Slimfast with my milk. Definitely has to be a chocolate flavor!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    When I was younger, I used to go overboard on the chocolate until I broke out in hives.. So, I’ve been sort of forced to pull back and away from that. I do have stashes of it on hand, at my desk, just in case of those extreme urges to take some, and not just for gaining a quick energy boost.

    Anyway, usually whenever I go to the doctor’s office, my blood pressure is on the LOW end of the spectrum. One nurse even asked me if I was “alive” in there, because it was so low!!

    So, whenever I’m having a really, REALLY stressful day at work, I keep expecting the numbers to be very high, and they end up in the “normal” range, instead of on the low end. I haven’t tried not taking chocolate at some time of the day, just to experiment.

    However, I do know that my hubby has very HIGH blood pressure, and claims it’s inherited. He also AVOIDS chocolate because he’s borderline diabetic, so he associates it with being “sweet” and only takes it sparingly.

    —- Proof that chocolate has physical, medical benefits! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  87. AlisaSG said

    re: *CHOCOLATE* (anything with chocolate in it)

    I forgot to add that the folks who were consuming chocolate in their diets and suddenly stopped taking it – their blood pressure went up. But almost immediately upon consuming it again, their blood pressure dropped. So, that’s why the medical community started wondering if there was a correlation to the chocolate being a contributing factor in lowering blood pressure. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anne, check out one of my entries a few weeks ago (it’s in some other topic area) about the wonders of Dagoba chocolate. They make a medicinal chocolate bar (Honest, I found it in the natural remedies section of the store!) for menstrual problems. It’s yummy AND good for you. Well, **I** think it’s good for me!

    I ended up spending last night on the other side of town (from me, probably near most of the other Portlanders) taking a friend of mine grocery shopping at 9 PM. Her husband’s a chef who works extremely late hours and they only have the one car. Thank goodness she lives with her mother-in-law (I bet you never thought you’d see THAT sentence anywhere!) so she could leave her daughter in bed while she went out. It’s a sad life, though, when my high point is taking someone to the grocery store. Granted, it was a half hour trip to get to her and I got to drive through some really pretty areas but still…

    I have to giggle. I was researching Eastern European folklore and decided to try Slavic rather than Russian or USSR in the library search (most folklore books are old enough that USSR will bring up the right connections.) And I found the only book the library has on Slavic mythology. The title is Forests of the Vampire : Slavic Mythology. I think for the first time I’ll have a topic here that hits both the SCA area and the BT area… Hee hee! (Yeah, I need a life. I’m WAY too easily amused!)

    Margaret or anyone else posting to LIFETIME’s blog site,
    would you please tell them at Lifetime (because I’m almost certain someone at Lifetime DOES read their own blog at some point in time)

    that when they at LIFETIME finally start airing eps 13-22, to also PLEASE fix
    their current “Season 2” SEASONAL reference back to SEASON 1.
    The official site has them listed as SEASON 1, and I don’t think
    bloodtiescentral with hot connections directly with TPTB of Blood Ties are going to change the numbers of the episodes, just to accomodate LIFETIME’s goof-up..!

    The folks in Canada (CityTv) have already commented about the confusion with the season numbers, so they don’t know what season is what until CityTV stays firm with the original production numbers as noted below–

    ep#1-22= 1×01 thru 1×22 for ALL of season 1 =only,
    thus season 2 would appear as
    ep#1-22= 2×01 thru 2×22 for ALL of season 2 =only.

    Otherwise, IF (and that’s a HUGE *if*..) LIFETIME will end up changing the numbers for the REAL Season 2 eps past 1×22 as this:
    ep#1= 3×23 thru to whatever # of eps get added to that (thus, virtually turning them into a Season 3, which they are not!).

    In other words, we’re all going to NEED a Conversion Chart just to keep up with what episode is actually what — when discussing them with other countries…! That’s like talking metric system vs. the yardstick. The two shall never jive, nor meet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    and yes, you have 100% permission from me to post this message to the Lifetime blog-
    as in a direct and complete copy/paste with my name and time (as long as msgypsy doesn’t mind the reference). ..hoping that’s okay.

  97. AlisaSG said

    I forgot to ask if my above post was okay with you too, since you know how the minds of bloodtiescentral actually works (because I mentioned the site and said “hot connections with TPTB” up there, but don’t really know – just mentioned what I felt from a gut feeling).

    (hope that’s okay, unless you have a tweaking suggestion to what I wrote)

    Lifetime is screwing with our brains as much as the Sci-Fi channel did to Stargate SG1 viewers.

  98. AlisaSG said

    i am wondering… do the actual eps on the OFFICIAL Blood Ties web site actually list the episode numbers? (in other words, all as Season 1 or eps numbered
    from 1 up thru 22)…??

    I remember they did when they first listed them; but I’m not sure if it’s all listed now by just titles, especially now that LIFETIME screwed the standard production number tracking system up. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    and one more item – VERY important, but ON THE GOOD NEWS front..

    I just realized that since the actress who portrayed Trance on Andromeda is also in
    .. HEART OF FIRE .. (she was the hooker Mike and Vicki were interrogating)

    I will be able to make another update announcement (“plug”) onto Gateworld for episode #8. It’ll be under their Andromeda topic. AND there is a very creative way for me to directly link both programs into each other — thank God because of the evil MENDOZA’s blasted SUN device! Remember, those who watched Andromeda — Trance’s character was that of
    –an avatar of the SUN–
    For once, he’s turned into a *hero* for our BLOOD TIES series.. (OMG!!!!)

    gosh, can you imagine?? Mendoza a HERO to the rescue by pulling in even more NEW viewers??

    I can only pray, this will help BT, and a protective shield would be put around Blood Ties and everyone connected with it..

    and that the (usual) troublemakers on the websites will back off of their repetitious mantras of “oh, we’ve seen that before”.. or “that line is getting old” —
    which they’re famous for .. and use it as a ploy to kill off any program anywhere in time, regardless of what the truly dedicated viewers think.

    They’ve even gone as far as saying “I’m sick of hearing cliches” to turn it against Karen Cliche’s character to deliberate trash the series of Flash Gordon!!! — sometimes, I wonder if those people are the adversaries of these people in real life, just to stir up fame or destroy it in the life of others.

    (am I concerned?? yes.. that’s just another reason why.)
    But — I can only HOPE FOR THE ULTIMATE BEST..!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  101. msgypsy said

    Reference away! I’d been figuring we’d have to use episode titles exclusively because there’s no other way to communicate across network numbering lines.

    Lavender has a definite flavor. The ice cream will be more or less white (eggs will change the color a little) but will taste very distinctively of lavender. It’s a major ingredient in herbs de provence which you can almost always find in the grocery store spice aisle. But I don’t leave the lavender in the ice cream. I just infuse it in the milk and strain it before I make the ice cream. (The lavender cheesecake we had was made with big whole leaves left in and that was the problem with it.) But just in case this turns out to be a loser, I think I’ll pick up a pint of Americone Dream at the grocery store.

    Speaking of which, I need to get out the door and DO stuff today.

  102. AlisaSG said

    msgypsy, me too, about getting out and about.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    okay.. thought I’d share another AMAZING coincidence..
    no sooner did I finished typing up my note about Trance from Andromeda being in BT ep#8.. and I hiked on over to the Andromeda topic at gateworld, and guess where the conversation was sitting at…??

    TRANCE.. and her role as the sun’s avatar.. OMG! I nearly flipped out.
    So, I just had to add in my 2 cents worth of comments about Trance’s costume design in the hair dressing area. ..is that timing or what?? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    or just another *BIZARRE* coincidence on how this (Blood Ties) series has turned into..? ..no such thing as a coincidence..
    trying to think positive, warm and happy vibes here..!

  106. AlisaSG said

    wow, she sure sounded like her (acted like her too).
    anywho, I didn’t mention anything about it yet on gateworld, so they still don’t know about ep. #8 over there.

    I did mention about Gordon Michael Woolvett (aka โ€œSeamus Harperโ€ of Andromeda) being in BTโ€™s episode # 4, titled โ€œGIFTEDโ€. *sigh*

    maybe that’s for the better.
    Maybe (hoping) it’ll keep the more aggravating trouble-makers away from interfering with one of our current favorite programs and favorite vampire.

    bring in as many new good viewers as possible, and keep the bad guys out. (once Trance gets mentioned as being a *hot* star – literally, a burning sun) there’d be a stampede of who-knows-what just to watch her, in another show.

  107. AlisaSG said

    >> IMDB also list Blood Ties as One season with episodes 1 – 22.

    That’s GOOD news!! and translates that IMDB is on our side! (or on the more “authoritative” side of having trustworthy information).

    ..and I think they (IMDB) have more of a higher respected authority level
    (*aura presence*) than an average Tv network.. which sadly, Lifetime really is regarded in many areas as “average.” It’s not the most popular network on Tv. Whereas, IMDB is considered a highly reliable and popular source. ๐Ÿ™‚

    >> Laura Bertram/Trance wasnโ€™t in Heart of Fire.

    Anne, is the “sorry” note regarding Laura Bertram/Trance or about bloodtiescentral having connections..? (my mind is warping, and I’m just wondering if the other note for Lifetime is acceptable or needs tweaking of that line out, and insert IMDB, or add IMDB for reinforcement?)

  111. AlisaSG said

    thanks for the assistance, Margaret!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I’m guessing LIFETIME’s current blog system doesn’t recognize end of paragraph tags, since all appears to be mushed into one giant paragraph..

    I did notice something you might want to add, if it’s not fixable tho- the last sentence reads– “why can you promote” —
    >> You see we visit Canadian Boards so we can promote Blood Ties for YOU (LIFETIME) so why can you promote BLOOD TIES for us?

    not sure if it might sound better worded “why aren’t you (already) promoting BLOOD TIES for us?”

    if you do go back in there, you might want to add the note about IMDB that Anne mentioned too,
    >> IMDB also list Blood Ties as One season with episodes 1 – 22.

    I just tried to find out how the *official* BT site is listing the eps.. There doesn’t seem to be a listing of the eps at all. They’re only announcing each next ep, as they seem to be coming up on the CityTV channels (for the moment..)

    wait til the SPACE channel starts up! and add Lifetime’s mess to the mixture too! I think TPTB who discuss things on coordinating efforts will really need to have a nice “this is how the eps should be set-up” order.

    Maybe that’s why LIFETIME is stalling.. because they’re so screwed up – that they screwed themselves up, and now need to fix an error that should have NEVER occurred in the first place! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  112. Margaret said

    Actually, before I ever can back and read your post I told them we had visited the Canadian Boards and were advertising for them so why couldn’t they advertise for us.

  113. Madonna said

    Hey y’all!

    Just taking a quick break from candle making to check the blog and have a late lunch.

    AlisaSG, Margaret and all of the rest of you who have tried to advertise for Blood Ties and have sent myriads of post cards. I commend all of you. You all are truly warriors and what a great cause. I wish I could do more, but right now time is truly a precious thing that I simply don’t have much of. Please, lets not get discouraged in our fight. Keep doing all that you can, no matter how limited and above all else STAY POSITIVE!!!!!

    I think my wording was wrong earlier. 3 hrs of sleep can do that to you. What I meant to say was more to the effect of I can’t believe how much screen time he got for it being his first role. Our Kyle did an amazing job of playing that sick boy. It was even more amazing considering he didn’t have any lines other than a scream and a fit of coughing.

    Well everyone I’m off to make some more candles. Take care and I’ll talk to y’all tonight.

  114. Margaret said

    Madonna: Don’t give me too much credit. I’m no longer doing 20 a day. Its more like 10 a day and I really believe they have already made up their minds, they just aren’t telling us. The whole thing has left a bad taste in my mouth. The least they could have done long ago is said we’ll make an announcement x number of months out. Didn’t have to say what they were going to say, just that they would make an announcement or they could have explained because the business is so cut throat they couldn’t. Anything, even a crumb would have been bettert than the infernal silence they have greated us with for months. Guess the ladies think because they have to play in the same arena as the “boys” that they have to behave the same way. Don’t know about the rest of you but it hasn’t made points with me and guess what I seriously doubt if Lifetime really cares.

  115. Anne said


    The sorry was all regarding Laura Bertram.
    I wish she had been in Blood Ties – that would have made it three Andromeda alumnis in BT.
    But I agree – the big doe eyes and that hair – it reminded me a lot of Laura.

    I have a contact person at Insight, Kaleidoscope, CHUM/CityTV and Lifetime – I think the Bloodlines trio does too.

    I emailed my Lifetime contact, asking her if they could possibly fix that season two confusion. I don’t have high hopes – but I did point out that everyone else – including IMDB – is listing season one = 22 episodes.

  116. I survived the script writing last night. No clue what the producer thinks of it. I should know by tomorrow.

    *crosses fingers* I hope he likes it, I worked pretty hard to get it to him in the time frame he gave.

    Luckily I got to go hang out with some buddies of mine after all of that writing. I might have gone totally nuts if I had to stare at the laptop for any longer!!

    How’s everyone’s weekend been so far?

  117. AlisaSG said

    thank you Anne for *all* of the work you’ve done to help out. It’s always a nice surprise meeting someone who has real, tangible connections into these things.

    and thank you also for your reply about Laura Bertram.
    >> The sorry was all regarding Laura Bertram.
    >> I wish she had been in Blood Ties – that would have made it three Andromeda alumnis in BT.
    >> But I agree – the big doe eyes and that hair – it reminded me a lot of Laura.

    .. I started thinking again (ut-oh! yes, my mind never sleeps! LOL!)..
    That hooker may not have been Trance, but aside from the visual and vocal similarities, etc., I do believe Trance’s tatoo made an appearance in that same episode as the SUN pendant, itself. It looked awful similar if not identical to the tatoo on Trance’s back.

    I’m going to try to find a picture of the tatoo, so I can compare it against the pendant. We may be able to remedy this YET! (translation.. Mendoza would still be a HERO, if the pendant’s design is even remotely similar to Trance’s SUN tatoo.) If this proves true, there’s still hope — and that’s just another way bizarre demonstration on how my brain operates.. ๐Ÿ˜›

    that way, ep #8 will have plenty of exposure, even if it’s just a minor detail playing a major role into the storyline for HEART OF ICE and HEART OF FIRE. I’ll still need to figure out how to phrase it creatively enough to get those appetites interested. But at least in this situation, there’s a 3 week head start in letting folks know the episode is out there.

    That may also be why I got the whole Trance SUN/thing blended into ep#8. It sort of gave me the creeps when I saw its actual design..
    in the deja vu area. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I forgot about mentioning Steve Bacic as “Rhade” in that topic where discussions about Gordon’s Harper are occurring. I can only hope one more place for exposing BLOOD TIES might be helpful, if I do mention Steve Bacic into the Andromeda topic on Gateworld. But I have to be careful on there, because the moderators don’t like things that looks like people getting on just to advertise in multiple places of the same chunks of info.

    Steve Bacic has his own topic thread already on Gateworld under favorite characters — in this case, for Stargate and anything *basic* Steve related, ๐Ÿ˜‰
    (I already mentioned about his appearance on BT weeks ago in the topic dedicated just for him). But I’ll try to drop a new note into the Andromeda topic (probably after ep#8.. wait for some feedback on eps#4 and 8 –if the SUN device can be worked into there– to see which way the winds are blowing first), if possible.

  120. vicki said

    hey all…

    TANGO…Love the list…I think I may have done a few of them!!! I like the idea of netting around my desk..but I doubt it would keep the 7th graders away from me. LOL

    I loved the videos on bloodties site…sneak peek of new episodes rock!!!!!!!!! I am having a hot flash every time I watch him lean in on her neck….The look on her face!!! WOW>….(of course it doesnt help that I have watched it about 10 times…maybe more) HEHEHEH

    well gotta go…making food for family gathering tomorrow….

  121. Anzia said

    Tango- LOVE that list! OMG! I so want to do some of those! ^_^ Sadly we can’t have any form of noise/music or anything at our desks otherwise I’d do the Tropical sounds and mesquito netting! *giggles* as if the people at work don’t think I’m crazy enough…

  122. Margaret said

    To all my Blood Sistas: Hope this Labor Day is a pleasant one for you. Hope that all those near and dear to you are feeling better, now that each and everyone of them are in our thoughts and prayers.

    I was telling Chery that I went out and bought Tuesdays with Morrie because Kyle said it was his favorite book. I recommend that everyone read it, it’s an excellent book. Just confirmed, once again, Mr. Schmid, is wise beyond his years as this is a REALLY deep book for 22 year old, which he must have been at the time. Seems like the lines between him and Henry are blending. Could it be that this young man has been raised properly and that’s whats impressive to us? Certainly is to me.

  123. DebS said

    Hey all,

    I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day Weekend. I am actually at work..am I the only one? Here is the kicker on that too. Everyone in my office but my colleague Witney and I took the day off. Our campus is not officially closed so the office has to open. And without telling each other five people decided to take today off…I only found this out on Friday. So, then after I have 7 meetings scheduled for today, one of my bosses comes in and says, “if you don’t have anything scheduled you should feel free to close the office today.” WTF?!? Crazy, huh? Anyway, needless to say here I am on this gorgeous day running our entire office…oh and playing on the blog. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ok. enough ranting for the early morning. I am feeling much better…sorry I couldn’t come and talk this weekend. I was lying in bed sick all weekend. Watched some good movies and tv though…including BT.

    Margaret-Love Tuesdays with Morrie. That was my freshmen reading book in college and I couldn’t put it down. Still pick it up every now and then.

  124. Margaret said

    DebS: Stinks having to be at work. I think Tuesdays with Morrie has become my new favorite book. I had a hard time putting it down to. Reminds you of what is really important. Thinking about buying a copy for my boss for Christmas.

  125. vicki said

    deb…sorry you are suffering at work…chin up and skip dont walk to those meetings…

    Anway happy Labor Day to everyone….and now I have to go and watch that video again..((Sighs)))) Hot…plus the one where Vicki and Correen say…you are wearing that??? Cracks me up!!!

  126. msgypsy said

    Good morning, blog kin. I woke up on time and even did some carpet cleaning this morning. How’s that for Laboring today?

    DebS, I feel for you having to work on a nice day when everyone else is having fun. Hopefully you’re making your own fun.

    I’m about to curl up with a book for a few hours, then run over to a friend’s house to do group crafting. I made my ice cream last night (it came out more vanilla than lavender but it’s still quite good) and also a roasted corn and tomato salad to share (the hostess is providing the barbecued stuff) and am working on a couple of baby blankets so I’ll be having fun. (The group project never takes more than fifteen to thirty minutes; we know each other too well and always schedule more time for individual work than group…)

    I watched “Cyber Seduction” last night and I have two things to say. Okay, three. First is that Wow, that movie sucked. Poor Kyle, being in it AND having the most believable role. The other two things are that (1) Kyle plays belligerent very well (which may account for his being cast as a bully so often and which also shows in his “arrogant Henry” persona, the old “Prince of Man” thing from the books that he does quite well) and (2) even back then I could see from his his jawline that he was destined to someday play a vampire. If I’d seen this (or any of his other roles) before “Blood Ties” came out, I’d have been thinking “Gee, I wonder how he’d look as a strawberry blond because if they can find tall enough actors for him to work with, he’d be the ideal Henry Fitzroy.” (I see they managed to get around both my imagined limitations, but I never count on willing suspension of disbelief…)

    But that was one bad movie! (Even the description Comcast has in its schedule uses faint praise at best for it.) I’m really glad Kyle was able to find other roles where his talent was used to the benefit of the film rather than what happened in “Cyber Seduction.”

    Thus ends Gypsy’s Movie Review for the month. Back to your regularly scheduled Labor Day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  127. DebS said

    Thanks for all the support ladies. I do love my job, so being here doesn’t make me to angry. Just a little sad. Witney and I are closing down the office for lunch and taking a 2 hour lunch today. That is our way of having some Labor Day fun.

  128. vicki said

    you go girl….Have a fun lunch…

    Now I must go andd grade some papers…evil teacher that I am..I actually gave them work the first week of school…LOL….

    Then i must iron clothes…(YUCK) one of my least favorite jobs…and then….well you get the picture…a womens work is never done…unless she has the money to hire another woman to do it. HEHEHEH Which I dont.

  129. DebS said

    Vicki-What do you teach?

    I am teaching a college course for the first time in my life. I have never thought I would be a good teacher. I admire teachers so much, and always enjoyed going to school. But me as a teacher, hah! It has been interesting. I also gave them homework the first week, it wasn’t hard though.

  130. DebS said

    Ok off to my two hour lunch. Talk to anyone who is around when I get back.

  131. AlisaSG said

    DebS said,
    >> But me as a teacher, hah! It has been interesting. I also gave them homework the first week, it wasnโ€™t hard though.

    Eeeeeewww. Homework! yucko. Do you grade on typos, too?? (hee-hee!)
    we’ve got plenty of those in these blogs, and grammar boo-boos. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    (especially on my end.. detail oriented, except for the occasional *details* that this ol’ brain just doesn’t caatch (that was deliberate!) on the first several reviews..)

    >> Good morning, blog kin.

    good morning msgypsy! (class has now begun.. sorry, couldn’t resist with Deb’s note above this one!) ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    >> I woke up on time and even did some carpet cleaning this morning. Howโ€™s that for Laboring today?

    my, my! you’re ambitious. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Was it mandatory (as in cat or dog problems) or just one of those spur of the moment things, or putting off cleaning that had to get done anyway?

    my hubby is home.. so that translates as, I’ll be put to work with lots of house things to do.

  132. AlisaSG said

    ok.. don’tcha hate it when you write something up one way, post it, read it back later, and the original meaning of thought ends up looking like something else??

    >> ..detail oriented, except for the occasional *details* that this olโ€™ brain just doesnโ€™t caatch (that was deliberate!) on the first several reviews..)

    it was the word “caatch” (that was deliberate!), not the entire rest of the sentence! Oy! (sorry about that)

  133. AlisaSG said

    re: the Iluminacion del sol (sun *torture* device)

    one more item.. I tried to research the sun device thingy Mendoza had to compare it against Trance’s tatoo (on Andromeda), and the only picture I found of her tatoo was on the blurry side. But it did have a face on it with sun rays extending.

    The only problem with the face part of Trance’s tatoo was that it looked like there were *devil* horns on the head, too. Weird.

    Well, I’m kind of torn on doing further research on it, and thinking maybe it’d be better to just let the series ride out on the two Andromeda guys we know are on BT — that is, as far as letting Andromeda fans know about the eps Gordon Michael Woolvett aka โ€œSeamus Harperโ€ and Steve Bacic aka “Rhade” have appeared in.

    I do think that from a quick glance, (without staring at the tatoo too long, because it was above Laura’s chest!) that it reminded me of the sol device in eps# 7 and 8.

    Does anyone out there think I should just let it go or pursue mentioning it, even as in passing – that I *thought* it looked similar (because it did have a face on it!)

  134. AlisaSG said

    from me previously above,
    >> my hubby is home.. so that translates as, Iโ€™ll be put to work with lots of house things to do.

    just found out there’s a four-legged critter coming to visit too. The animal is half my size and weighs nearly just as much as I do! Yep, I can lots of vacuuming going on after this little (BIG doggie) visit (cause he sheds, and it’s summer; so he’s sheds even more). ๐Ÿ˜‰

    gotta go move the breakables from getting thrashed by a whipping tail.. (happy dog — he *really* adores my hubby, and vice-versa) house just isn’t big enough for the dog to move around in (neither is the outside yard.. yard? what yard?)

  135. Annalaise duChat said

    Alisia–The sun motif with the face is pretty common. A girl I work with recently got a similar tattoo. I’ve got tons of clipart with that motif.I don’t think there is any true deep seated meaning here just coincidence. You can pursue it if you want though.

  136. himmiefan said

    Hey Deb – it sucks having to work today. I hope you get off early. Oh, I hope you’re feeling better!

    Anzia – Have you read The Temple Dancer by John Speed? It’s about India in the 1600s. Really good.

    Tango – love the list!!

    Well, I hope everyone has a great Labor Day. I’m off to visit the clearance sales. ๐Ÿ™‚

  137. DebS said

    yay! The day is almost over. I think I am leaving work at 4:30pm. That is only a half hour early, but it is a small victory. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The other highlight of my evening is I am having dinner with a friend at a local Indian restaurant…greatest food in town. So excited!

    What is everyone else up too?

  138. DebS said

    Ok. Well I have decided that since all my meetings are done. I am just going to head on out. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am off to do some afternoon shopping.

  139. Anne said

    I was supposed to be on the evening shift, but I took the day off to do an evening race instead – 5 k in 36 minutes.
    At least I wasn’t overtaken by any snails.

    Bonus: Men took of their t-shirts – RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!
    And not beer-bellied men either ๐Ÿ™‚
    Not that I would have been able to catch any of them …

    It’s a relay race sponsored by DHL and it runs over 4 days, so I’m doing it again Wednesday, aiming at 35 minutes next time. It’s all company teams – tonight I ran on the Duracell team, Wednesday will be the IBM team.

  140. msgypsy said

    Anne, what is DHL? (I always equate it with the shipping firm Dell uses, but that’s just because I’ve had WAY too many dealings with them…)

    Congrats Anne. Sounds like you had fun today.

  142. Anne said

    Indeed I had ๐Ÿ™‚
    Talking with guys about blood-blisters and toenails falling off – his, not mine – the best socks and underwear and prices of running clothes – yep, I’ve entered a new world.

    DHL is indeed the shipping firm – they sponsor the race.
    Some of the companies had hired bands and masseurs for their runners and others had hired a chef to manage the barbecue … I will be on a barbecue-enhanced team Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Back to work tomorrow. DAMN! I’m not ready. Two weeks off and I’m STILL not ready! Thank god the holidays are up next!

    Didn’t do a damn thing that I was supposed to. Bird room still looks like crap! I had a water cooler in the bird room that I moved today but misjudged a step, fell and dropped the thing on my foot! At least it wasn’t a toe! YIKES! That’s the worse. Anyhow, its going to turn a lovely blue/black not to mention the scrapes in a scape of a V.

    I DID read about 8 books. *sigh* That was a dream come true! And we went to look at houses in PA – can’t get the kind of house we want with Maryland houses.
    I’m agonizing over whether I want to drive 90 minutes, one way, for ever. I shouldn’t even be considering it.

    Three hours a day?! I’d like to enjoy my new home, you know? Right now it’s an hour a day. Statistics show that three hours is three times as much as one. That’s why they pay me the big bucks because I can work the complicated math equations. I’m so torn though!

    Anyone here have a long commute and thinks its worth it?

  147. prtfvr said

    Oh boy, ALL of the IMDB stats are down. I’m figuring holiday week, right?

    Any word on whether or not Kyle received his awesome birthday present? It’s the suspense that gets me! Where’s that quote from, DIZ? ๐Ÿ™‚

  148. Margaret said

    Welcome back prtfvr, missed you. I don’t drive three hours but I put in 16 miles round trip every day which is about a half hour up and a half hour back. Don’t forget to consider the cost of gas and how much thats going to cost you while you’re making those three hour commutes.

    How’s your foot. Hope its getting better. Those vacations-they’ll kill you if you don’t watch it.

    AlisaG-Educate me-what’s a facebook? Or anyone else who knows, can you explain it to me?

    Prtfvr what quote my sista’? *Reality Bites*, *Love Sucks*, *If you can’t beat em’ join em’ *, I’ve got plenty ๐Ÿ˜‰

    MaggieMay my sista’ I went and blogged for you on CityTV, stoke up the curiosity ya’ know ? Leave them wanting more.

    Claire is MIA again. I’m assuming she’s gettting the little peeps ready for school.

    Belle de Claire, nous sommes absents vous. Trop silencieux pour trop long. Je devrai envoyer Henry dehors ร  la recherche de belle Claire. Henry apportera le chocolat, et le pรฉtrole pour frotter partout son corps.

  150. Anzia said

    Okay, so, i have to go back to work tomorrow and I’m already dreading it. *sigh* I’m such a whiner. Someone seriously come and whack me upside the head! It’s pretty sad when you annoy yourself!

    Prtfvr-I HEAR YOU! Well, not so much with the dropping of a water cooler on myself. I was used as a human jungle gym for the past two days. THAT wasn’t fun…great workout…I have read a lot in the past two days I’ve finished four books and started one more. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s been GREAT!

    Diz-Secret money? Taking the risk of sounding dumb, What secret money? Can I get in on it?

    Himmie-nope, never read it. “The Dowry Bride” was good though. It was a good look into the culture and psyche of people. Only drawback was the author humanized all the main characters and gave their story. So, you understood (sort of) why the bad guy/mother-in-law was the way she was and such. That, and the end wasn’t truly an end, almost seems like there should be a sequel. *shrugs* Very true to life though. Although I’d have to admit that Megha (the main character) is much stronger than I can ever dream of being. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll look into the book you suggested. ^_^

    Laurel- Am I raiding your place for that spanish coffee? ^_^

    Tango- If you’re still wondering what to do while grounded, could always sneak out. You know, climb out the window and down the tree like every teen flick ever created shows us how to do. Sadly, I never had any cause to do that. I was such a pathetically good girl that I never ONCE snuck into or out of my house. Although there were plenty of times when I’d wanted to…

    Prtfvr, I have a killer commute. I drive between 45 minutes and an hour EACH WAY. It didn’t used to be that bad but then my office was relocated and it was quit or pay for the extra gas. I get through it by getting books on CD and listening to them as I drive. My book right now is “Born to Kvetch,” a cultural history of the Yiddish language. It’s a little annoying in that the author is reading it himself and not only does he have the stereotypical Jewish accent (the “sing-song” accent, my mother calls it) but he’s Canadian so he’s also flattening a lot of his vowels. (Some folks from North Dakota and Minnesota do that, too.) And he ends every declarative sentence as if it were a question; not sure which accent causes that…

    I managed to develop a migraine this afternoon and am still a little dizzy and out of it so I think I’ll go to bed and hope I wake up for work feeling better. Damn, I don’t want to go to work tomorrow!

    Hey Z. Funny you mentioned The Dowry Bride. I just saw it today and made a note to look at the reviews on Amazon and B&N. It looks good.

    Prtfvr – You are hysterical! I do symapthize with dropping the whole water thing. Henry’s on his way over to kiss your toe and make it all better. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My Gypsy – Hope you feel better! I’m sending Mike over to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  154. himmiefan said

    Yes, “symapthize” is a word. I swear it is!

  155. prtfvr said

    ms.G: When I worked for Verizon they relocated our office three times! It sucked! But you need a paycheck so what can you do? Other than quit, that is and I HATE looking for a new job!

    Mag-pie: The foot is achy but only if I stretch my foot or cross my feet and hit it. Today’s the real test! Work shoes!! ARGH! The laces go over right where the boo boo is. Man!

    DIZ: The quote was “It’s the suspense that gets me.” Bugs Bunny a long, long time ago. Maybe the sixties?

    Z: You have to get in line behind me whining about going back to work! Too bad there isn’t a full time job whining, I’d be RICH I tells ya! RICH!

    Ok, I’m procrastinating so I’m gonna go, but I don’t wanna!

  156. lwildstar said

    good morning ladies -Just a drive by to check in.
    I hope everyone had a good weekend! And now back to the grind!
    Its going to be one of theose weeks so I may or maynot be around. Everyone take care!

  157. Annalaise duChat said

    Good morning all — Yes it’s back to the old grind, but just think this is a 4 day week! The weekend will be here before we know it. I know it’s terrible to wish your life away like that.

    Prtfvr — Good to have you back! Sorry about your foot, good luck with the home search.

    msgypsy — How is your miraine? Gone today I hope!

    Anne — Way to go with the run girl.Congrats!

    Iwildstar — thanks for the Demon book I’ll read it as soon as I can.

  158. msgypsy said

    I woke up this morning feeling tons better than I’ve felt in months. Amazing how much goes into building a migraine.

    I have a question about that phrase “bumping uglies.” I assumed when I heard it used in BT that it was some kind of slang from the gangster era. But I just saw it used in a (brace yourselves cuz this is weird) cat macro based on Doctor Who. So I wonder, did I just find (a) a fan of old-timey colloquialisms, (b) someone using slang that is still in current usage that I have just never heard, or (c) a fellow BT fan who is also a big Doctor Who fan?

  159. msgypsy said

    Anne, just noticed this T at a website I was perusing for giggles.


    You can see from the URL what the joke is. It’s pretty cute. I may have to get one. (Is Tivoli still open? Still old-timey? I loved Tivoli. Don’t tell anyone, though, because a 19 year old American girl hippie doesn’t want to be outed as a kid at heart…)

  160. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Morning my sista’s ๐Ÿ˜€

    PRtfvr, hope the booboo feels better but the show may bite a bit, but with Henry around you’re probably used to the biting thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Gyspsy woman glad to hear that bad ass Migraine’s gone I had one that lasted me *16* days. I was on the ragged edge and could have justifiably killed someone. Oh *Bumpin’ uglies* been around a while not sure how long but it’s a term I’ve heard of course “I” never used it (hee hee hee). It’s like *knockin’ boots* etc. That’s the Urban lingo lesson for the day, now you have to use said terminology with someone today ๐Ÿ˜›

    **Dr.Z** My lil’ sista’ this is the link for “The Secret” I was turned onto it by 2 people from work and I’m trying to apply it. Very cool in theory if we can apply the techniques etc. The world is our oyster ๐Ÿ˜‰

    http://thesecret.tv/home.html Check it out and whoever gets the money first takes care of the others till their money comes in…..Cool ? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  161. Annalaise duChat said

    Just out of curiousity I googled “bumpin’ uglies” and it does show up in the Urban dictionary so I guess it is a current slang term Who’d a thunk?.

  162. Annalaise duChat said

    …..I guess our vamp must be up on all the latest slang terms.

  163. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Morning my sista’s ๐Ÿ˜€

    Prtfvr, sorry about the foot boo boo and sorry I didn’t know that quote. Have a great day !! Misery loves company ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Gypsy *Bumpin’ uglies* is a term that’s been around for a while not sure when but it’s been a while. It’s kind of like *Knockin’ boots* now you must use said Urban slang in a sentence today ๐Ÿ˜›
    Glad that migraine’s gone, I had one that lasted me *16* days and needless to say I was on the ragged edge and could have justifiably killed someone. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  164. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Oh before I forget Vicki that was one of my favorite books was *Where the red fern grows* I cried , but I loved it. *A Seperated Peace* was another that made an impact on me , I’m huge John Steinbeck lover too. Thanks to my teachers for opening my mind to great literature.

    TO all our teachers THANK YOU !! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  165. Anzia said

    *shudders* I hate migraines! UGH, I get the stupid things all the time and there’s only one thing that I found that works. Sleeping in a totally dark room with music you find soothing playingy very very softly. I know the suggestion is very late but, it might help in future times.

    Gypsy-I always thought it was an older reference too! huh, who woulda thunk it…

    Himmie-I liked that book quite a bit. It’s not fast paced at all. No real romance to it at all. But GREAT on the psychology and such. ^_^

    DUDE! It’s 10am and I’m still in my PJ’s! *giggles* I should probably fix that huh???

  166. DIZEY1 :-) said

    That was supposed to be A Separate peace not separated. Sounds like a song to me …….Gotta’ keep em’ separated……

  167. DIZEY1 :-) said

    **Dr.Z** my lil’ sista’

    I’ll give you the link for “The Secret”, I was turned onto it by 2 ladies I work with. I burned the audio discs and listen while I’m in my truck. I also went to Amazon and bought the movie. Now all that said the one who gets their money first takes care of the other sista’s till their money comes in COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Love ya’ and great manifesting!! http://thesecret.tv/home.html

  168. DIZEY1 :-) said

    I have posted twice and they must be in limbo. I’ll wait and see if they show up before I re-type.

  169. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Gypsy check the limbo post bucket please when you get a chance ๐Ÿ™‚ Love YA!!!

  170. msgypsy said

    You’re out of limbo, Dizey1. And now I’m off to the doctor (not for the migraine although you’d think I should, wouldn’t you? I take six 200 mg ibuprofen, two sinus pills, and lay down in a darkened room until I can see again. Usually takes about 3 hours. Then, if my stomach has settled, I can move around but reading is out of the question and watching TV is iffy. I can knit but I keep my eyes closed.)

  171. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Thank you Gypsy Woman, and yes you should see if there is a better answer than all that Ibuprofen not so good for ya. There’s no way I could read, and when I get them I lose chunks of vision like puzzle pieces. I get the little sparkles first and then the missing pieces of vision it sucks !
    Glad you are feeling better and hope the Dr. visit goes well also.

    So good time had by all…lovely end of season tans..then home to get my darlings ready for school!!! They went off this morning at 8:30..they were Happy…some of their friends live on our new street…so they had buddies at the bus stop!

    Check everyone out later!
    Oh by the way…can you believe…we made it to Sept! LOL! without to much craziness!

  173. Danae said

    Hey guys! I am on lunch a little early. I am feeling really horrible today. I went to a fair yesterday and I don’t exactly feel sick but I did spend part of the night in front of my toilet just in case. At times I had that sensation. I know Ew! I hope it wasn’t something I ate. I would think that if something I ate was going to make me sick it would happen alot sooner then the middle of the night. I have absolutely no appetite. Ugh!

    prtfvr-Sorry to hear about your foot. How is it with the work shoes? Hope you have an easy time finding a new home.

  174. Danae said

    Well I guess everyone us MIA. Lunch is almost over so I have to go. Talk to ya later.

  175. lwildstar said

    Good afternoon!
    Sorry youre feeling so gross today dani…I know that feeling well.

    The AC only came on here an hour ago! we are all sweating like pigs! we have guests coming in and just found out I have a suprise meeting at 2pm that I am nnt looking forward to (like finding out your having a pop quiz) but Paul asked me to go for a walk with him (we just got back) so at least I’ll be going in to the meeting happy!

    I went to check on my stories and you know The first has had 117 hits in the past month, and the sequel has had 11 since yesturday! wow!
    I got a funny email in regards to the sequel – “Did you know that was the title of an Ernest hemmingway book?”…I emailed back “does it matter?”

    oh well – ihave a hlaf our left and I want to see if I can squeeze in some writing!

  176. Danae said

    I would definitely find out if that matters or not. You don’t want anyone coming after you.

  177. Tango said

    Ello Luvs!

    Gypsy – boy I feel for you with the migraines. I also get them and keep my Imitrex spray in purse at all times. And that sometimes doesn’t work. I am glad you have gotten through the worse part. Laurel shared the picture of the Portland crew with me. It looks like you guys have a lot of fun. Good to put a face with the name.

    Diz – ROTL! “Thatโ€™s the Urban lingo lesson for the day, now you have to use said terminology with someone ”

    “Oh Henry!!!!! Come hither lad! I’ve got some terminology to try out on ya!”

    prtfvr – glad to see you back! Sorry to hear about the tootsie! Don’t do like I did and just ignore it. I think I sprained my foot about three weeks ago. And you know what happens to a sprained foot when you ignore it? It keep hurting until you do something about it. I just dread the thought of icing it. Owie!

    Seeing that I am grounded – I’ve got to get going.
    Hey Z – just how long am I grounded for anyway?

  178. lwildstar said

    thats why i asked – if it does matter I’ll change the title – as of this morning no one has responded…..
    but just look at how many entries you gt if you put a book or movie title in a search…..
    talk at you tonight!

  179. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Claire Bell, bonjour mon bon ami. Henri vous a trouvรฉ et a frottรฉ tout votre corps ? Beth aimerait voir des gosses de Vega si prรชt, j’aiment faire des emplettes. Claire a รฉtรฉ manquรฉe !

    Daniella, so sorry you felt bad. Mi papa also had a strange feeling in his belly. Felt like he wanted to hack since Sunday evening. No one else was ill so I can assume a little bug has got him. Feel better my little Blood Sista’ ๐Ÿ˜€

  180. lwildstar said

    Well I changed the title and corrected two spelling errors while I was there!

  181. Danae said

    I know I’m not supposed to be on here because lunch is over but I had to say this before I forgot. At the fair yesterday there was a vendor selling pendants that he engraves for free. I bought an arrowhead pendant and had him engrave Henry on it for me. Woohoo! It was the best one he had that went with Henry. Crazy enough for you?

  182. DebS said

    Hi everyone,

    Danae-Sorry you aren’t feeling well.

    I left work early yesterday…and went shopping! I got this really cute dress. I don’t buy or wear dresses, but I was just in a mood try something new. Now, I need to find an occasion to wear it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  183. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Nightwalker,

    Where’s the new story? I went to the Darkness Falls , is it attched to it?? Let me know so I can read. Thanx sista’ ๐Ÿ˜Ž


    Any day is a good day for a girl to get dressed up ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad you’re feeling better too.

  184. Anzia said

    Tango- feel free to be ungrounded whenever. ^_^ I’m a rather relaxed paretnatl non-figure I guess. ^_^

  185. laurel said

    Wheew! I survived the long weekend with six 17-year-olds. They won a cos-play contest on Sunday and were very happy campers! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Only down side to the festivities was my daughter getting her wallet stolen. She is most concerned about someone stealing her identity just as she is applying for college and loans, etc. We have to spend today replacing ID so she can drive and get her books at school. Her school ID is required for checking out text books. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I’m glad you gals are on the mend! We have had more than our share of walking wounded. Migranes are really the pits, I have only had a couple of bad ones but Moonbeam sufferes from the worst I have ever seen. You all have my sympathy and prayers.

    I think my youngest intends to have me paint her room today. I wonder how that is going to fit in with the DMV and High School, and oh yeah, my job!!!!!

    Good grief, Charlie Brown!

  186. laurel said

    Tango – looks like Anzia un-grounded you. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Lets go play!

  187. elizabeth said

    Hello everyone – whew it has been a busy morning so far! To all of you that are injured or unwell – I hope you feel better soon.

    I have to share my news – I passed my yellow belt test for Karate! Woo Hoo – yeah me!! believe me, I wasn’t sure I would survive the test; it was really tough – particularly for an old broad like me ๐Ÿ™‚ I felt a little weird at first because the oldest other person in the class was 20 years old! But, we weren’t given time to really think and by the end of the hour all I could think about was my next breath. I haven’t worked out that hard and ran so much in a very long time. If anyone had asked me what I would be doing in my 50’s I sure wouldn’t have guessed Karate. It just goes to show what we can accomplish when we want to, doesn’t it?

    I also had an encounter with a snake. Did you know I can defy gravity? Me either…but I did when that snake and I were face to face. My daughter was laughing so hard she could barely move. I have a totally irrational fear of the creepy crawly things! When that snake moved I hung suspended in mid-air for a bit and then landed with one foot on the porch railing and the other on a chair. I did not come down from my perch until the neighbor came over and removed the creepy thing from my yard. It didn’t matter than it was harmless, or that it would eat spiders – who cares, I’m not scared of spiders for crying out loud!!! Can we say I avoided my front porch for the weekend?

    My company works with a local Catholic High School for under priveledged kids. We “hire” them for the school year which helps pay for their tuition. They work one day a week with us. Anyway, I spend the morning meeting the four new students that will be working with us. It is a really wonderful program and these kids learn a lot about business while with us. It has also taught my team a lot as well. It is nice when there is a part of your job that is rewarding, isn’t it?

    Gotta run. I’ll check back later.

  188. laurel said

    Too funny Elizabeth. I see you remembered the detail about snakes eating the spiders, in spite of your fear. I can just see you perched akwardly on the porch waiting for help. hehehe
    Good thing you are so athletic! Congrats on the yellow belt, btw. I need to get involved in some real excersize and you are my new inspiration. ๐Ÿ™‚

  189. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Props to you Miss E!!! Where in the Karate line does the yellow belt fall? How many till you are black belt?

    Laurel, my Blood Sista’, I want to see the pic of the NW Coast girls, where can I view ya’ll ? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Tango , so did you use the Urban Lingo word of the day yet?? Call your hubby and ask him if he’d like to *Bump Uglies* with you and I bet you’ve got a taker ๐Ÿ˜›

  190. elizabeth said

    dizey – Yellow belt is the first step on the very long rung to reach black belt status. Basically, it is just denoting that I am no longer the beginner, but a practitioner of the discipline.

    Laurel – I know I had to look funny perched on the railing and a chair, but I was not budging for anyone! I give my neighbor credit though…he may have grinned at me, but he didn’t laugh. Smart man ๐Ÿ˜‰

  191. Danae said

    Ok Bellas. I am heading home, turning my air on, light some incense, take some tummy stuff, and going to bed. I may be here tomorrow, I may not.

  192. elizabeth said

    Danae – feel better soon, k?

  193. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ciao Daniella, feel better my lil’ sista’ ! ๐Ÿ˜€

  194. Himmiefan said

    Hey Danae. Hope you feel better soon! As soon as Prtfvr’s through with Henry, she’ll send him over.

    Congratulations Elizabeth!! I love the snake story. I’d be doing that with a roach. Ick!!

    Dizey dear – you know I have to set you up! just wait til part two! You’ll just have to wait a couple of weeks til I get to writing it tho….

    I changed the name to When The Sun Rises…..

    I’m glad you liked it!

  203. lwildstar said

    well I have a craft show this weekend and I havent done a thing to get readyso i guess I should go work on some jewerly – i’ll check back later!

    Ahhhh my Maggie May, you pessimist you ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Don’t rain on my parade! I know it’s him.

  205. Margaret said

    Not trying to rain on anyone’s parade, I just remember he said he avoids the net like a plague. Just being guarded. I’d probably embarass myself otherwise. lol

    Changing subject-hope everyone is feeling better and hope the relatives are too. On the subject of miagraines-mine went away after I had a partial hysterectomy but I wouldn’t suggest it for anyone of childbearing age who still wants a child. Imitrex seemed to help mine but then it made my stomach sick, it was a choice of a sick stomach or headache so I choose a sick stomach when I used to have them.

  206. msgypsy said

    They told me not to come in to work when I called after the doctor’s appointment. I casually mentioned that I was getting over a migraine and my boss said the drive was too far to do if I still had some residual eyesight problems. Have I mentioned that, much as I often hate my boss, I also love him?

    I posted the picture I have of the Portland Gang at https://msgypsy.wordpress.com/2007/09/04/the-portland-gang/. If I’ve screwed up any of the names, I apologize.

    And now I think I need to go put some of the many nasty things the dermatologist gave me on my hands and feet because … well, never mind the because… (It’s not painful or even particularly uncomfortable. Just annoying as hell.)

  207. Tango said

    OK what did I miss?!!!!! You know it was him? Him who? Kyle? Dang it! What did I miss? What! When! Where! Who! Spill Diz!

    Z- thanks for ungrounding me! I say let’s all go have chocolate dessert and a variety of coffee drinks and once we’re on a caffeine high, we can go speed shopping!

    You should see what Laurel has done to revamp Mike’s look. She had had it with the old worn out trench coat and has put him in some new threads that in Laurel’s words, “Go great with his smile” I must say his new look which includes black and leather makes his personna sexier – Well done Laurel! I must say his butt looks good in those jeans!

    The lightning storm Friday fried one of my TIVO’s – dang it! I’ve got to get on the net to see if I can find another. My neighbor who owns a satellite store says that they are hard to find – sure I can get a DVR, but I don’t like them as well as the TIVO. I bought 2 TIVO’s from him last year when lightning ran in the house and I think I’m just going to have to see what I can do on my own. I will go through a period of mourning if I have to live without my TIVO. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    E – I am right there with you and the irrational fear of Mr. Noshoulders, Satin’s evil handpuppet, evil incarnate. This is the only animal that God actually took his legs away. You tell me that is not a sign of evil. So good for your with your suspended animation. Whatever it takes. I would have given you a standing O had I been there. Bravo!

    Was this a move that you learned in your karate class?

  208. DebS said

    Hey everyone,

    I just spent the last two hours at an information table in the heat. It was fun, but hot.

    Tango-I have tivo, they are still sold online at tivo.com.

  209. Chery said

    Yes, ladies Kyle signed the guestbook. And was very sweet.
    but on a down note, he said he missed the people he knew in person, (guessing Peter, the girls in the wardrobe van, etc) so I guess that means that they are not filming season 2 yet.
    Also both Kyle and Peter Mohan signed the guestbook from Toronto………
    BT is filmed in Van Couver……..

    Also, the first 22 episodes were filmed from August 28, 2006 until April 5. 2007.

    Real Downer……………….
    Sigh………. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  210. AlisaSG said

    well, I for one believe it WAS Kyle. (spirit-sensitive BT connection vibe there…)

    Of course, when I read his note, I scrolled down the page to see that I didn’t type up my note properly and wanted to say his performance was amazing in Heart of Fire and wrote it as Heart of Ice!! Aggggggggggh! *sigh*

    (I think -hoping- he *knew* what I meant to write.. gosh, I hope I didn’t screw up the card that way too!) whew! I just checked.. it’s not in there.
    (leave it to *clutzy* me for first impressions in the Clutz zone!)

  211. prtfvr said

    Can someone check on the Hen’s site so I can see if it’s getting any traffic? I can’t believe that even the bots haven’t hit. It went from thousands to zero. How’s that possible?

  212. Tango said

    Debs, are you on cable or satellite? What the technician said that just left my house was that TIVO is still going strong but has stopped making stuff for satellite and that Directv has starting making their version called the DVR, but truly is not up to the standards of TIVO IMHO. I will try to send TIVO.com an email to ask them I see there is a subscription cost on that sight, where I am just needing the hardware. Thanks for the heads up. I hope that I can find what I need.

    Chery, I am still a little ignorant when it comes to all this stuff… what guestbook are you referring to? Can you give me a link so I can check this out? Don’t get discouraged. I’m not giving up the ghost until the fat lady sings. And I don’t care how unskinny any of you ladies out there thinks they are – I better not hear a peep out of anyone! Capishe?

  213. Tango said

    prtfvr – just went over and viewed “The Dance” – check
    Checked into Bloody Ford for a minute and triple posted! Who hoo for me – a first there. You still having problems?

    Hi y’all!

    First of all let me just say that that man is SO SWEET, and when I say sweet I mean totally awesome. I’d love to meet him too.

    Margaret, Chery,
    He did say that he avoids the internet, but he did say that it was useful to keep in touch with friends. He is just trying to communicate with us. Have a little faith and just take it for what it is. Also just because they started filming at the end of August the last time doesn’t necessarily mean anything. He IS in Canada instead of LA. That’s a good sign isn’t it? STAY POSITIVE! and bring positive things to yourself.

    Portland Crew,
    Sooo nice to see all your pretty faces and to be able to put the faces with the names.

    Tango- During your absence from the blog Anne set up a guestbook on http://www.kyleschmidcentral.com for fans to wish him a happy birthday. Kyle signed it today.

    So sorry about your foot. I can sympathize with you. Just try to stay off of it for a few days.

    I hope you feel better very soon.

    I’ve been blessed most of my life because I don’t get too many headaches. Long story….. but in ’05 and ’06 when I did start having a few bad ones they did surgery to remove what they thought was a brain tumor. It was a tumor although benign and NOT a brain tumor. I have another smaller one close to my left ear and if I touch my scalp there in just the right spot I can trigger a headache. Needless to say I try to avoid that.

    So sorry to be MIA the last couple of days. Tonight is the first time I’ve even touched my home computer in 2 days. You know, work, work, work. I’ll tell you my news….. I found out this evening that we’re in the festival. That means that the potential is there for 100,000 to 150,000 to see our candles. This is huge for us.

    You’ll appreciate this and anyone else who has ever used Photoshop. I have an ad on my desk to do tomorrow that I have to clip out 120 cars for, NOT counting building the ad and the 30 or 40 other ads that I’ll have to do.

    I’m gonna go grab something to eat and work some more and probably pass out onto the bed before long.

    Take care everyone.

    Damn Madonna! Where’s your scar? And, don’t press on any knots!

    The Bloody Ford Clinic always works but according to the stats it says that I’ve had no hits on my site since the second week in June. I know that’s wrong. I just have to figure out what the heck I changed. Sheesh! I’m trying to get in gear for the next batch of comics. Come on season 1!

  218. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Madonna, I am soooo sorry they’re working you like a dawg sista’. I hope the lightens soon. I agree totally my co-optimist ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was a little treat today, I’ve been smiling ๐Ÿ˜€ ever since. That totally rocked that he took the time to stop and log on! Just like us ๐Ÿ˜‰ He likes us we’re cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž Love ya’ chick I’ll say a prayer to St. Joseph patron saint of workers to cut you some slack. Congrat’s on the candle BIZ.

    Claire Belle’, so sorry about the butt kicking school’s giving you ๐Ÿ˜‰ But a massage from Henri will melt away your worries. If things don’t pick up here I may come see you for a job ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL! Je t’aime mon ami, dorment bien

  219. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Yo Bird lady I’m in the clinic , what no shoes no service?? I could’ve said no shirt no service, but………..naaaahhhhh.

  220. Madonna said

    The scar runs from right behind the back of my left ear to almost all the way across the back of my head. Just over 7 inches long and it took 24 staples to close.

  221. Madonna said

    Congrats!!!! You go girl!

    Glad you are feeling better.

  222. I’m sorry, I missed all the action. Let me just say EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE in the most fangirly way! That was sooooo sweet of him. OMG.

    OK I’m calmer now.

    Kyle — that Guinness is still available any time you’re ready!

    Madonna — All I can say is “better you than me!”

    Anne — Thanks for giving us the opportunity to post our Birthday Wishes on your blog. You rock girl!

  223. DIZEY1 :-) said

  224. I even called my hubby over the see Kyle’s post and he was excited too. Not because Kyle posted, but because he knew how how excited I was about it. He’s a good guy and puts up with a lot. I think I’ll keep keep him around for another twenty years!

  225. Tango said

    Madonna! Thanks babe! I got to go over and see what all the buz was about. And I must say I believe it to be him. Just because it gives me the warm fuzzies inside to think so. Thanks for giving that link.

  226. DIZEY1 :-) said

  227. Tango said

    Love ya Supermom!

  228. laurel said

    I do believe….I do believe….I do believe…
    (Insert fangirl squeee)
    I wonder if he checked out the party sight.

    I needed something positive today. That will do nicely.

    Elizabeth – Because of your snake story I got a very warm coffee sinus wash. Ewwww
    Did Tango mention that she thought you were my sister? it must be the haircuts we got the day before. lol

  229. vicki said

    hey all..

    OMG…i got chills reading Kyle’s post…its like I could hear his voice saying it…(does that make me obsessed?? or just a fan??) Hmmmmm its a toss up…

    That was soo cool of him to sign on and thank the faithful..( or to quote Shakespeare badly) “we few…we happy few. we band of sisters!! (ok…i changed one word)

    Anyway I am still geeking out over the video on bloodties site…soo awesome to see stuff we havent yet…Got the biggest giggle over Henry calling Mike “Renfield” LOL>…sooo FUnny…

    well got to lay out clothes for tomorrow…I am such a planner…

    I did the gym thing tonight too…I have lost 4 lbs….just 15 more to go!!! I am thinking positive….positive…..

    later girls…(Loved the pic of you Portland women!!!) We need a fan gathering of us East Coast girls….

  230. laurel said

    I just changed my avatar so I had to come back and look. lol
    Thank you Tango for the new pick.
    Since I didn’t send the rest of you the imaginary image of Mike’s new look I gues I’d better do that…

    Black jeans
    Dark evergreen mock turtle-neck shirt – actually a whole collection of dark rich colored shirts w/ties (for a more formal look), and tees when he is not headed for court.
    Black suede jacket that hides his holster and service piece but lets us see his lean hips and tight buns…

    Well, you get the picture. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I have a friend who is a detective here in Portland who wears similar stuff, so I know it would be appropriate for our Mike.

  231. Anzia said

    *SQUEEE!* OMG! THAT WAS KYLE SCHMID! *waves hands in front of face* need smelling salts…gonna pass out! OMG OMG OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG…*DEEEP breath* Okay…i think i’m alright…AHHHHH!

    Anyway, To everyone hurt or working lots (((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))) I’m sorry! I will totally and COMPLETELY switch jobs w/someone for a while! Especially since some old guy told me today he was gonna shove his wife’s Kohl’s card up my bum! ICKY! Creepy old man with no patience! Anyway…

    So, I’m a dork right. Not new news. I’m drinking (well WAS anyway) Trapicana’s Orangeade and noticed it said “made with REAL fruit juice” So, outa curiousity (’cause I’m part cat) I looked. Yup, REAL fruit juice alright…3%.

    Tango- DUDE I aam SOOOOOO with you! I vote we shop Kohl’s. I have my 15% discount for anyone using cash or check! ^_^ I’m shameless in using that thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ They had a HUGE clearance sale this past weekend…yeah…totally used it there. On quite a few items I got 75% off! ^_^ I’m cheap! ;0)

    Okay, I’m not really one to say “go illegal” but I HAVE to compliment these girls. I called someone today and the poor girl had had her identity stolen by some girls that had been living with her. Now, before you stone me or whatever, I kNOW that’s bad, but SERIOUSLY the amount of planning these girls had to have gone through! They stole all of her credit cards, SS crd, ID EVERYTHING. Then coerced her into signing her car over to the girls (transfering the title) Then, they set up a P.O Box and arranged for all of the CC statments etc to be sent there instead of the woman’s house. I don’t applaud the act but the planning…these girls knew what they were doing. All in all, I was told that they got her about $90,000 in debt!

    Okay, i’m gonna hide now…I really hope ya’ll don’t think I was cheering the girls on …

  232. Anne said

    thanks for signing the guestbook again ๐Ÿ˜‰

    indeed, Tivoli is still there. It may have closed for the summer season, but it will open again for Christmas.

    congrats on the yellow belt.

    Portland Crew,
    nice to see faces.

    A pox on all migraines!

    Oh ye of little faith ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Someone confirmed it – it IS indeed himself.
    I guess he decided to brave the plague for once …

    just curious, since I wasn’t agound for the box – where did you send it to?

    do you want me to change it to Heart of Fire?

    I agree – Kyle is a keeper

  233. AlisaSG said

    >> AlisaSG,
    >> do you want me to change it to Heart of Fire?

    Oh please, would you?? you have that ability to do so? thx!! it’d be greatly appreciated, except I think he’s already read the original as HEART OF ICE.

    well. one more item for me to make a note of in my card to him (I still haven’t written up the snail mail one, yet..) I hope to get it out soon.. well, msgypsy wished him a longer birthday celebration, so by sending the card in a little later will make it last that much longer.. (i can only hope!)

    my birthday is a month after Christmas. So, I get a long Christmas / Birthday combo celebration in there.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  234. AlisaSG said

    as for migraines — there really is no all-time cure-all.
    I had a wicked 4-way migraine last 48 hours to the point where I couldn’t see to get out of bed to drive or watch Tv. I had an ice pack on my head, which helped, but I didn’t get much sleep in that 48 hour time period.

    Whenever I get them now, I’ve been trying to track how much fluid I’ve been drinking (water), and what the weather meter reads between the barometric pressure, dew point and humidity. If the dew points and humidity are within 20 number degrees of each other (and it doesn’t matter where on the scale), then I check the barometric pressure to see which side the headache is zoning to, and how long it might last.

    I get horrid migraines especially over my left eyebrow (usually first). Dizziness usually comes with it. And I wouldn’t say this is a cure, but it helps
    – stay in as totally dark of a room as long, as possible
    – place a cold compress (washrag) over your eyes

    I’ve even tried accu-pressure, but in severe cases, relieving the pressure points only lasts a few minutes, but they keep coming back!

    Excedrine (aspirin) helps a little. I found out it has caffeine in it, which helps open the blood vessels a little bit to make them flow better.. The only problem is 4 Excedrine (migraine) tablets exceeds my caffeine limit for the day. Caffeine can also contribute to causing fibrous cysts (which can lead to cysts and tumors in the breast area – in some people, if not closely monitored and kept under control. 200 mg is around a max limit. Safer doses are under 100 mg, preferably 50 mg max.)

  235. AlisaSG said

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!

    not sure if any of you folks have seen this yet.. I think it’s been mentioned before.
    here’s the BEHIND THE SCENES special at hypaspace (spacecast).. and I’m not sure if you have to be logged in the spacecast site to view it, either.



  236. prtfvr said

    Madonna: Wow! They used staples?! I HATE those things. I think they hurt worse to remove than stitches! When my son had brain surgery they took the entire back of his skull off. He didn’t complain once. I’ve always wondered if he just didn’t want to make me more upset by saying it hurt. So I’m going to ask you a silly question; did it hurt?

  237. lwildstar said

    Anne – i didn’t send Kyles box I think it was Annalaise duChat, but I could be wrong…

    Ok who mailed Kyles B-Day box and where?

    I did the mailing for tanyas card and book mark – I sent that to kaladescope and they very kindly passed it on to Tanya – it was so cool, she thanked us on her journal.

    Ok guys – seeing Vickis post about henry calling Mike “Renfield…” I can’t seem to find that clip – HELP! could someone post the link or directions…thanks guys, I’ve been out of it lately what with work stressa nd this sore throat that keeps coming back!
    And whne I’m not working or sleeping I’m writing….does anyone want to try another writers chat? I’m availabel Friday night…any takers…

    Will talk at you later~

  238. Annalaise duChat said

    Iwildstar — No it wasn’t me. Lady Afrodyte I think. (You are still getting us mixed up!)

    I’d like to see the “Renfield” post as well, could someone post the link?

    I actually posted an addition to my story last night for the first time in several weeks. Thanks Rifkind and thegirls who attended the writer’s chat for your held.

    Lady A — I haven’t forgotten about the transcript, I’ll email it out the evening.

    Alisia — Thanks for the migraine advice. To those of you experiencing them you have my deepest sympathy. I don’t get migraines but I get cluster headaches. They are said to be more painful than migraines, although they occur on one side of the head like migraine and a lot of the symptoms are the same. They come in “clusters” and there causes are unknown.

    My last episode lasted 1 month. Every evening for a month I had one of these monster headaches. Did you know you can’t take Imitrex that often? It can kill you. Although at that point I wanted to die anyway so it was a moot point. There is nothing that can be done about the pain. Miserable!

    So Anne — You now have Kyle’s email address don’t you you lucky dog?

  239. Madonna said

    Good morning guys!

    I was very fortunate that they did not have to go into the skull like they thought they’d have to, so I’m sure his hurt MUCH worse than mine. The worst parts about it for me was trying to avoid sleeping on the incision, having half my head shaved and ALL the different doctors I had to see afterward.

    I’m sorry you still feel so bad. Hope you feel much better very soon. The clip everyone is talking about is on http://www.bloodtiestv.com under Mike’s video. Lady A sent Kyle’s package and I believe she ended up sending it to his agent. I don’t know for sure though. Guess we’ll have to ask.

    Lady A,
    Where’d ya send the package? Have you heard from the producers about your script yet? Good luck!!!!

    I hope you are feeling better today.

    OK, Off to work now. Talk to you later.

  240. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna — How are those clipping paths going? Are you ready to scream yet?

  241. Madonna said

    Just got the ad built and just getting ready to start the clipping paths. Ask me if I’m insane again in a couple of hours.

  242. Danae said

    Ok I know I am not supposed to be on here right now but I can’t help it. I am so totally giddy. What a sweet sweet guy. Can we say OH YEAH!? I actually started tearing up. It was like he was actually talking to us in person. And he mentioned our party too. Yeeha! That totally made my day. I feel 110 percent better just because of that. HEHEHEHE! I can’t stop giggling and beaming.

  243. Danae said

    OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD! I can’t stop gushing. I know it was him. Ok so he said he stays away from the net but he could have gone on for the time that it took to type that and then gotten off again.

  244. Annalaise duChat said

    I think I’m the one going insane. No I didn’t type that twice!

    Well you have fun Madonna. and make sure the tires don’t look flat. You know what I’m talking about don’t you!

  245. Claire said

    Morning family!!!

    How is everyone today? Tango darling Thanks! Beth…yeah there is nothing a massage from Henry wouldn’t cure!!!!! Ah…to dream!
    Are we still all fangirly over Kyles post….Uh yeah!
    Anne rocks for putting up the site!
    Another thing we share…migraines! I get the ones with the lightening bolt type lights…I think they’re called auras…bad enough I’m in pain but blind in one eye also!!
    Prtfvr…if you don’t mind…what type of surgery did your son have?
    Christopher had the side of his skull removed and then put back..after the tumor was removed…they drilled holes and sewed it back on with titanium wire…which you can still see under there.I always worry about him getting hit there!
    OMG…if Kyle visited the birthday site..he was probably peeing in his pants! we were crazy that day!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway..life calls…check you guys later!

  246. prtfvr said

    Claire: My son had a neuro blastoma (sp) (brain tumor) removed. It was very rare and pretty much guaranteed to come back which it did and killed him.

  247. prtfvr said

    Claire: They put his skull back too all I remember asking is “are you SURE it’s not going to come back off?” I don’t know how they re-attached it.

  248. lwildstar said

    Thanks Madonna!

    Sorry Dr. DuChat – yes I got you and Lady A mixed up again!

    ok back to work!

  249. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Bonjour mes amis, Buongiorno Daniella , I agree OMG Claire I am soooo fangirly still. Dani I should have called you yesterday after you left work, I was so stoked I was speechless….(NOT) Glad you’re feeling better a good does of Kyle/Henry will do that for you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Prtfvr, Madonna, Claire, When they clipped Robbie’s aneurysm they took off the side of his skull by his left temple, good size a bit larger than a baseball and he had staples also. looked painfull but he seemed to be ok you can see the indention on the side of his noggin, and that’s the pain culprit which sparks his seizures. Scar tissue…..badddddddd.

  250. DIZEY1 :-) said

    That was supposed to be a good DOSE of Kyle/Henry . Ahhhhh the sucky typing QUEEN ๐Ÿ˜€

  251. Danae said

    Right after I read it this morning I called my mom and was all like Guess what? Guess what? Guess what? I was so totally freaking out. She said hopefully he will leave us a message when he gets our gifts.

  252. DIZEY1 :-) said


    I think he’ll find a way to say thanx for the gifts ๐Ÿ˜‰ He so kind and considerate you know. He’s such a cool dude ๐Ÿ˜Ž Yep I’m gushing sorry my sista’s I just can’t help myself.

  253. Danae said

    I am still beaming. I pray to God I don’t get caught on here today. I just can’t stay away after that message. I will be much better behaved tomorrow.

  254. Anzia said

    Yeah, another fangirly girl over here. I couldn’t sleep last night for the longest time ‘Cause I was so excited that that was him! It’s just so cool! I’ve never had contact with a famous person before (except for an email or two w/majorie liu) and Danae’s right. It was like he was talking to us right there…in front of us… SO COOL! I add my “ANNE ROCKS” to the rest of the pile.

    I’m so sorry about all of the children’s medical issues. You guys are amazing to have been able to come back from that. I can’t imagine it. You women are truly strong in spirit and heart. I’m glad I know you!

    I can’t even try to imagine having staples. *shudders* It scares me to no end. I had stiches ONCE and I freaked out completely. I really don’t think I’d be able to handle metal bits holding me together. I’d have a major meltdown. (Not a long shot either. I gave the DR giving me the stiches a black eye ’cause I kicked him. In my defense…IT HURT! and I was six or seven)

    Claire-I’m glad your quads got to school okay. Were they excited about the first day or dreading the return of school?

    Today is my day off (WOOOT!) and I am SOOO going to enjoy it. I have every intention of running errands as soon as I stop talking to my blood sisters here (and get dressed). Then I’m watching MOVIES all day! ^_^ Talk to you guys later!

  255. Annalaise duChat said

    Anne — I was wondering, do I get a prize for signing the guest book the most times?
    Maybe a personal meet & greet with our favorite guy? Whad’ya think?

  256. prtfvr said

    Anne, as ‘laise’s manager I feel that I should accompany her to any Kyle meet and greets! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  257. Danae said

    I had staples when I had my breast reduction surgery. All the way under both armpits under the breasts up to almost the top on the other side in the middle and around the nipple because the had to remove and reattach the nipples. I also had the disolving stitches under the skin. I remember pulling little pieces of them out a few months after.

  258. Madonna said

    And I’m Annalaise’s partner in the makeup biz…..

  259. Danae said

    Well here writing buddies need to accompany her to keep notes for any possible story ideas.

  260. Annalaise duChat said

    Yes! I need an entourage!

  261. Danae said

    I will do almost anything to see that beautiful face in person. I appears to me that we are the most adamant most loyal and biggest group that simply adores him. I say we all need to get something for that.

  262. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ummmm I’m Dr.du CHat’s………..Sista’ yeah that’s the ticket ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m Mel’s cool buddy and she said I needed to go to help out her mom, and I deserve to go because she thinks I’m COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž (hee hee hee)

  263. Danae said

    Diz aren’t you the gopher in the makeup business. You get the brushes and makeup for Madonna and Annalaise right?

  264. laurel said

    Thanks Anne!
    Without you we would have missed this delightful opportunity to give a little of the joy we feel, back to Kyle. We may be all fan-girly with each other, but the guest book has a nice sense of dignity and true appreciation of this nice young man’s work.

  265. elizabeth said

    Good morning everyone!

    Laurel – I think it is cool that Tango thought we were sisters ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very flattered! Sorry about the coffee sinus wash over the snake story. Truly be glad you didn’t witness it…you would still be laughing at me..my daughter sure is!

    Tango said:

    “E – I am right there with you and the irrational fear of Mr. Noshoulders, Satinโ€™s evil handpuppet, evil incarnate. This is the only animal that God actually took his legs away. You tell me that is not a sign of evil.”

    That is probably the best description I have ever heard of the slithery things! Glad to see I am not alone in my fear!

    AlisaSG- Thanks for the link to Space. That was a WAY cool way to start my day! I am really getting antsy for the new episodes. I am hanging on by the tips of my fingernails ๐Ÿ˜‰

  266. prtfvr said

    Damn, I’m glad I called manager first! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Danae: You made these old boobs hurt with the staple story! When someone asks me why I’m walking around holding my tits I’ll tell them to see you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  267. DIZEY1 :-) said


    You are not kidding just her description made me cringe. Ewwwww painful man ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  268. DIZEY1 :-) said


    You’re right ! Ha!! I’m the glorified gopher, and am very happy with my position ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Thanx again for hooking us up with the **Righteous Dude** you do ROCK, and you sooooo don’t suck ๐Ÿ˜‰

  269. Danae said

    It really wasn’t THAT bad. I couldn’t lay flat because they pulled and hurt but it helped that they give you a special bra that is extra tight and I had my first experience with percocet when I had that surgery. That drug is awesome. When they were removing the staples I was gripping the sides if the bed in agony because they really pulled then.

  270. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Prtfvr,

    Are you going to make a page for all us chix pic’s?? I still need to find one to send you with just me in it. (ewwww) I hate pic’s of just me but I’ll see what I can do.

  271. lwildstar said

    Hey I want in on the “road trip” I’ll even fly (big fear), i make a goor go-pher girl! Please! I’ll take notes……! Pleeezzzzzzz
    WOW I suddenly became my neice!

    Danae girl all i can say is owch! I’ve had stitches, but nothing like that – they just did a really bad job on the incision so now I have horrible scars…refused to wear shorts til I was in college (the scars are on my thighs).

    When this thread starts getting to full are we going to move to the thread with the picture of the OR Gang? (You lovely lucky things you!)

    Well I’m off to seeif I can squeeze any writing time in!
    Talk at you later!

  272. Danae said

    I just look back at that time as the initiation to feel the way I do now. Much more confident and happier.

  273. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ok Danae,

    TMI !! OMG that sounds terribly painful and good to know on the Percocet.

    ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  274. Danae said

    You all should see my scars. Everyone tells me that are barely noticeable but I know they are. The scars follow the exact description I left earlier. Now that I remember though the nipples weren’t stapled back on. They had regular stitches but seriously the doctor said to get to the size I wanted the needed to be removed and stitched back on. I will never be able to breast feed but it is a small price to pay. The doctor said I will probably have no sensations in them at all but I still get puckery but not as much as I did before. The right has more sensation then the left.

  275. Danae said

    You know what? I will stop talking about this. I just hear all of you moaning in phantom pain over my descriptions.

  276. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Amen my sista’ ! good for you it was a stepping stone on the road to Daniella, Danae, Bryony, Dani Girl that we know and love ๐Ÿ˜€

    Strangely I’ve always been the healthy, strong one. Never had a stitch or a broken bone , nothing. Crazy in grammar school I always wanted a cast. Twisted I know but I thought it was cool. Never been in the hospital , I do know I’m blessed with good health today and don’t wish for any of those things anymore.

  277. prtfvr said

    DIZ: Absolutely! I still want everyone’s picture. I’m glad I already have some of Danae because it sounds like she’d send one of her boobs instead what with wishing we could see them and all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wildwalker: How low were your boobs that your stitches are on your thighs?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Percocet: Doesn’t do much for me. I’m used to it. Plus if I take more than one in day I itch like crazy!

  278. prtfvr said

    DIZ: EVERYONE has wanted a cast in school at one time or another. Or maybe just attention seekers!

  279. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Danae, you are soooo funny. And the senstion loss would piss me off, but you’re right it’s small price to pay for the comfort you feel now.

  280. Danae said

    I used to feel the same way. I wanted a cast and crutches and never got my wish. I was never sick never in the hospital and as a kid I wish I could for a little while just to have everyones attention on me. Now I am glad I never had to go through it but when you are a kid your views are different and you think it is cool.

  281. prtfvr said

    That should have read “US” attention seekers!

    Danae: I breast fed all my kids and only made it about a month each time. If you want to experience it, just stick a leach on your boob! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  283. Claire said

    Prtfvr…I’m so sorry if I brought up painful memories…I had forgotten…you told us about it. We were told the same thing about Chris..he had a grapefruit sized Astrocytoma The inside was stage 5 but the outside rim was stage 4…stage 5 all over would have been terminal…but its a very chronic…95% chance of re occurance…about 7 years they said…which it is now.He does have a check up next week.
    Dizey…You can see Chris’s wires on the side of his head also…his hair never grew back thick and beautiful like before…its thin and patchy on the side.He’s so self conscious now…he wears a baseball cap 24/7.

    Ouch Danae…I think I’ll keep my small Boobs!!!
    Anzia Darlin…they couldn’t wait to get away LOL!! they didn’t even look back!

    Um…where’s this road trip? Annalaise definetly should get to meet our guy…for signing the guest book more than anyone! LOL! but I should be right next to her…just because…well …we share birthdays!!!! but hey I think we are his greatest most loyal fan club…wouldn’t it be a trip!
    Bunch of babbling…stuttering…speechless…drooling…mouth open…crazy women! LOL!
    Awe…wheres Susana…she’d be the one fainting!!!! in one of her famous fan girl swoons!!

  284. Danae said

    Ha You’ll keep your small boobs but went through that to get smaller boobs.

  285. Danae said

    I mean I went through that to get smaller boobs

  286. I’m with you DizeyI I’m thanking God for my good health, and admiring the strength and fortitude of you girls, with what you have had to endure. You are all amazing!

    Oh AAAnne, where are you! You’re not avoiding us today are you?????

    Prtfvr — Did you figure out the table thing? Were you able to open the sample?

  287. Danae said

    Ok lunch is over and I am going to try and stay away for the afternoon. Talk to you before I leave.

  288. prtfvr said

    Claire: It’s alright. I asked you first. I’d rather know than get no response at all.

    As ‘laise’s manager Claire, I can’t let you near Kyle. I’ve seen your picture and I’d like to be at least noticed before he becomes mesmerized by you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ‘laise: I haven’t done anything with the website at all other than try to add it to a search engine. I’m doing my best sloth impression right now and ain’t doin’ a thing! Shame on me, as usual!

  289. DIZEY1 :-) said


    I love you!! you make me laugh so much. Try a LEACH! I have no kids so I can say I’ve never breast fed any children. OMG , what a vision that’s etched into my mind now. And poor Wildstalker ,you are so funny. I’m sitting at my desk w/tears rolling down my face, wheeewww. Oh man I needed a good laugh. No pic’s of breasts ok !

    Claire, Rob wears his like a badge of glory, he’s shaves the noggin’. Big German head (hard heads at that). I miss Susana she must be swamped, and Maddie Mo’s missing now too. I pick up a few, and I lose a few……wassup wit’ dat’ ?

  290. Danae said

    A leach? No thanks. I will take your word for it.

  291. lwildstar said

    Prtfvr! ha girl you make me laugh!!!!!
    no my scars were the results of two incompetant doctors (at two different hospitals) taking biopsies – you would think by the size of the scars that they had done some major work or something – each is about 4 inches long and about a quarter inch wide – my neice called them worms when she was little…and they did such a lousy job stiching them that you can see the scars the stiches left behind. One of my friends in college asked if I would ever get plastic surgery to correct them and I told her no, because it took me all these years to just to get over them being there! I just don’t wear anything short enough for them to show (no that would be a mini skirt!).

    Well lunch is over must go…….

  292. Madonna said

    Hey girls,
    How are you all this afternoon?
    I’ve finally finished my clipping paths. YAY!!!

    Regarding today’s topics….. I can clearly see a contest forming here. What would YOU do for a chance to meet with Kyle Schmid? And anything is not an answer.

    Stitches or staples….. I’ve experienced both. Staples with my all my knee surgeries, my back and my head. It really doesn’t bother me to have either removed. (Although ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you I have a high tolerance to pain.)

    You girls really don’t want a broken bone or anything like that. The doctors cut my bone in two right beneath the knee to realign my leg. WORST pain I’ve ever had in my life. Two weeks after surgery I couldn’t even lift my leg under my own power. NOT FUN!

    How long did they keep you in the hospital after your surgery? I’m surprised they didn’t have you on a morphine drip with all the cutting they did on you.

    Can I submit an older, thinner, prettier pic of myself to go on Hens? I promise I still look the same only I’m thinner and my hair is longer.

    Sounds like you’ve got more names. (I have to say I like Dizey’s.)

    From prtfvr’s earlier post – Wildwalker

    From Dizey’s post – Wildstalker

  293. Maddie Mo said

    Danae, I have now reconsidered breast reduction. I was on the fence before but I think I’ll keep em for a while longer now. OUCH!!!

  294. Madonna said

    Hey Maddie Mo,
    How are you?

  295. DIZEY1 :-) said

    I think Wildstalker sounded more fun ๐Ÿ˜‰ And my girl’s got a good sense of humor. You have to, to survive this crowd. As a rule you must be able to laugh at ones self , I know I am totally amused by myself. Such a fool somedays ๐Ÿ˜›

  296. Danae said

    Madonna-I was in the hospital one night and I had an antibiotic drip over night but no pain drips. I wasn’t feeling much that first night I was so out of it. I forgot about a part of the scar. It starts under my pits goes around to the other side then they cut starting in the middle of that cut up to my nipple and then around. I forgot about the one leading up to my nipple. I wonder if they got the right and left nipples back on the correct sides. I just thought of that. How do they know? HEHE!

  297. Danae said

    Seriously it wasn’t that bad. It may sound it but the pain doesn’t last long at all. People getting an enhancement have it harder because they have to mess with muscle then.

  298. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Wrong Nipplage, oh man that’s just ………interesting. Nope I don’t think I’ll be reducing anytime in the near future.

    Maddie Mo did ya’ see where our dude signed the guestbook?? He so rocks!
    Glad to hear from ya’ just wondering where you were.

    Hey my Portland Gang, I didn’t mention how happy I am to see all those beautiful faces! **E** you look familiar to me, have you been to New Orleans and have you been to Marchand’s and maybe I helped you?? (hee hee hee) I’m so glad to have faces to go with the names now. Ya’ll are so cool Love ya’ll.

  299. elizabeth said

    Hey Danae, I had a reduction done several years ago! Best thing I ever did for myself..Dolly Parton looked flat chested next to me…no kidding! I never really had much pain with the surgery and the scars are starting to fade somewhat. The only time I got a little freaked out after a surgery was after the hysterectormy. I had staples and when they came in to remove them I remember telling the doctor that if he came near me with a staple remover I was So outta there!!!!

    Prtfvr – OMG! I breast fed my kids too and your description is spot on! It wasn’t too bad with the first, but, by the time I got to the last one I was in some serious pain and quit after 6 weeks.

  300. elizabeth said

    Dizey – I seem to have a face that looks familiar to people..don’t know why. Laurel thought I looked a little like Tanya Huff; Tango thought I looked like Laurel and you think you have seen me in New Orleans ( I haven’t been there yet). I actually had a very spooky situation happen when I lived in Tennessee because I resembled someone else.

    I had just gotten out of the hospital after a car wreck (where I also found out I was expecting my youngest child…I wanted a second opinion – believe me!!) I could barely move and suddenly my house was literally surrounded by FBI and the county police. I made it to the door and I had three officers come in – one to stand near me the other two by the back and front door. I also had several FBI agents in the mix and cops on the outside of my home. Talk about freaky. They kept asking me and my husband if we had been in Texas resently, showed me a copy of the check I had just written at the drug store for pain medicine to verify my signature and kept asking us where we had lived and worked previously. I finally got exasperated and looked at one of the County deputies and said “you know me, I just served on jury duty and have lived in this freakin’ county for 15 years” Once that was all verified they finally showed us pictures of the couple they were searching for and, I swear to you, they looked so much like us that we could have been twins!! I was shocked! This couple were wanted for fraud and writing bad checks and all kinds of things. Good thing I had some good drugs to take after than fiasco ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That is just one of the many times I have had weird things happen because I looked like someone else.

  301. prtfvr said

    First let me say that anyone who’s had a “serious” boyfriend has breastfeed an infant. In terms of gratitude, I think that the man might have it over the baby but that’s just me.

    Madonna: You can submit any picture of yourself that you want, as long as it’s not indecent. I’ll be the judge of what’s indecent! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Maddie Mo: I think that your bigger problem might be that you have your breasts on a fence. That can’t be good!

    Elizabeta: You know, my mental image of staples resulting from a hysterectomy and their removal was based on my having had a vaginal hysterectomy. My first thought was “How would they get a staple remover up there?” followed closely by “NO F-ING WAY!!” Am I correct in assuming that the stitches were on your stomach, not your poon?

    Wildwoman: I have stretch marks on my inner thighs. Had ’em since I was a kid. I never wanted anyone to see me in a bathing suit. Probably a few people felt the same way. Anyhow, they’re about 10 inches long *sigh*…Oops, I went to fantasy land for a minute there. They’re a BAD 10 inches, not a GOOD 10 inches.

    Scary thought for the day: What if today is THE day that Kyle decides to visit gypy’s after being off the net for almost two years? Wouldn’t that suck the big one?

    Kyle, in case you ARE reading any of this, I’m 22 years old, 5’4, brown hair, blue eyes, weigh 126 pounds and have absolutely NO stretch marks anywhere on my body much less scars! I’m just one of the new generation being kind to my elder, less fortunate friends. Yup! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  302. …and that’s exactly why I don’t share!

    Love you guys!

  303. Danae said

    At least he would know we were honest and open.

  304. Danae said

    I don’t care about sharing.

  305. Danae said

    After those words, Kyle I am a slightly attractive, slightly plump, 29 year old with lots of love to give and lots to love. I have a tattoo and a nose ring. Come and get me baby!

  306. DIZEY1 :-) said


    You know when I wrote that I did specify I had not breast fed any *children* ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m cryin’ again. ( my twisted sister)
    if our poor dude is reading any of this he is crying laughing just like we are. E I certainly hope the staples were indeed on the outside. ANd I always thought elders were reallllly old ya’ know, waaaaay older than us. I need a drink man, a Bloody Mary sounds good with some spicy string beans YUMMM.
    I’m going to lunch and when I get back we need to change a different BODY PART ๐Ÿ˜› ;-D

  307. Danae said

    Penis enlargement? Maybe he doesn’t need it.

  308. Danae said

    ๐Ÿ˜› Slurp!

  309. Danae said

    *licking my lips, eyes wide*

  310. prtfvr said

    Danae: “Maybe”?!!

  311. Danae said

    Well how should I know. No matter how much I want to I haven’t seen it.

  312. Danae said

    And I haven’t seen him in tights. I am only using my imagination.

  313. Danae said

    And in my imagination he most certainly does not need an enlargement.

  314. lwildstar said

    OMG! I knew I should not have snuck back in here!
    I have been choking to keep from laughing out loud!

    ok how many new names do I have now?
    Miss. K
    Wildstar (No L)
    Nightstalker (wasn’t that a tv show?)
    I even saw Windwalker on a post!

    how can I keep you guys straight when I don’t know who I am anymore!

    Kyle – please forgive the insanity and feel free to join in! Jump on in the water’s fine! and so are we!!!!!

  315. prtfvr said

    Danae: Not only does my IMAGINATION say that he doesn’t by my Tivo agrees! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wildwoman: I could call you Puddin’ Head but I doubt you’d answer! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Besides, no matter how many names you go through, we still know it’s you so you get carte blanch to change your name around – so long as you use parts of your original “names”. You’re special! ๐Ÿ™‚

  316. Danae said

    What are you watching that I’m not prtfvr?

  317. prtfvr said

    Oh and Nightstalker WAS a show with Darren McGavin in the 70s. Used to scare the heck out of me. The title came from the first movie (it had a couple of movies before it turned into a series). Anyhow, The Nightstalker was a vampire, a nasty one. LOVED that show!!

    I had a major fan girl moment when Darren McGavin was on the X-Files – twice! Chris Carter used to watch Nightstalker when he was young and he took alot of what he liked, added his own style and made the X-Files. The rest is history.

    I can’t wait until they start filming the movie! Hopefully everyone can get along long enough to finish it.

    David Duchovney….*drool*. His new show, Californication is really good but I long for Mulder anyhow.

    Ok, now back to our regularly scheduled lusting after our young man. ๐Ÿ™‚

  318. Maddie Mo said

    Hey Madonna. I’m doing good. Work still sucks but I think it always will. Just a fact of life.

    How is BooBoo feeling today? I hope good. I saw that Cree suggesteed Science Diet for him. I used to have a Lab that had some tummy issues and I switched to that on my Vets suggestion and it straightened her right out. It was a little expensive but well worth it.

    How are you doing?

  319. prtfvr said

    Danae: I actually watch Blood Ties on my computer via iTunes and you can do all kinds of things with that show on your laptop. Gotta LUV the close ups! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  320. Danae said

    I mean seriously prtfvr. My parents have a nice 56″ TV and they have On Demand over there so I have been enjoying Henry on a big screen but I have not been able to notice that part of his anatomy. Am I just to fascinated with his face and chest to notice anything else?

  321. prtfvr said

    Danae: It’s not the size, it’s how you use it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  322. Maddie Mo said

    Diz–What up girl. I did go over and check out Kyle signature. Got all fangirly here in my office, but I realy wasn’t sure if the blog had moved on past that yet so didn’t post. He is such a sweety. Especialy for someone SO young. A lot of guys at that age just don’t have it in them to be sweet yet.

    How’s Robbie doing? I read the DR changed his meds around. Hope that helps him out.

    For last weeks conversation about being printed. I did win!!! and it was totally worth the trip to Jail!!!!!

  323. prtfvr said

    Danae: Try iTunes on your PC. It opens a whole new world! ๐Ÿ™‚

  324. Danae said

    I can’t get Itunes. It is bad enough I do this when I shouldn’t.

  325. Danae said

    Maddie-Gush girl gush. I am still all aflutter inside and beaming when I think of it. I mean he mentioned OUR party.

  326. msgypsy said

    Oh, sweet gods and little fishies, what has this blog been up to today? And me going out for lunch with no time to set it all straight. Well, set it all right.

    If Kyle came to visit today I think he’d swear off internet forever. What kind of fans must he think he’s created? ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love us. I love all of us. We’re just the rockinest best bunch of folk around. Keep up the good work. Now I have to go eat lunch somewhere nice…

  327. Danae said

    And my credit card is maxed out right now. It won’t except it. Yes I did try.

  328. prtfvr said

    Grand Mistress G: I thought for sure I was in for a whipping until you added the ROTFLMAO. PHEW! ๐Ÿ™‚

  329. Danae said

    He should be pretty damn proud. We can fall into the gutter with style and pinash. Is that how you spell it? And we can pick ourselves without a thought to what we just did. HEHE!

  330. prtfvr said

    Danae my girl, it’s a brave new world you’ll be missing if you don’t get a PC at home!

  331. prtfvr said

    Oh, I think about what I do but then I suffer from OCD. I think about what EVERYBODY did! ๐Ÿ™‚

  332. Danae said

    It is so the first thing on my list when I get my nice big bonus this year. Second is a new tattoo. I may have to get one of Henry. Just Kidding.

  333. Danae said

    Well STOP! It is in the past. Don’t dwell on the past. Live for today.

  334. Danae said

    And let me worry about the naughty things I do and say. Lord I hardly do it at all so when I do OMG! it is such a relief. People are so shocked when I do they congratulate me rather then admonish me.

  335. Madonna said

    Maddie Mo,
    I’m doing fine, just overworked is all. Boo-Boo is doing pretty good too. He hasn’t thrown up in almost 2 weeks now and I’ve even gotten a few puppy kisses the last couple of days. He is a little depressed because my niece just went back to school and she is not there for him to run after.

  336. DebS said

    Hi everyone,

    Busy day at work today…it seems to become more usual around here. Just took a few minutes to catch up on the posts.

    Anzia-I love Kohls alot. Cool that you are working there…not so cool that you have to listen to angry people all day. I just bought the best dress there on Monday. I don’t normally buy or wear dresses, but (and I don’t mean to sound egotistical) I looked damn good! When everyone was sending pictures around in email, I didn’t cause I don’t have any digital taken of me. I may just have to take a picture of myself in this dress and send it around…hehe.

    Big Hugs to everyone who is hurting. I only skimmed the posts for today, but noticed talk about stapling and surgeries. Yikes! My thoughts are with those of you who have experienced that, are experiencing it, or know someone who is.

  337. Madonna said

    Guys if Kyle is reading this…..
    I’m sure that he is either
    a. laughing right along with us or
    b. reading very carefully as it is probably a facinating study into the minds of us women or
    c. both

    I’m sure however that he does not find it appalling or embarrassing.
    Example: Blood Ties Season one cast and crew photo.
    I’m sure that there is not much that would “shock” him.

    Like I said on the card, Us girls know how to have a good time. True, there are lines that shouldn’t be crossed, but I think we all do an excellent job of not crossing them. Kudos to all you “wild chicks”! I love you all.

  338. DebS said

    Danae-How are things going with Adam? Or are they going?

  339. Danae said

    Things are still going slowly but going. I like him so I am just taking things day by day. How is eHarmony treating you?

  340. Maddie Mo said

    Danae, I’m gushing. Trust me. It’s pretty cool that he mentioned the party here at Ms. Gypsy’s, even though I missed it. I miss all the fun stuff on the weekends. I have a computer at home, but I’m still on dial up and it is super hard to post and keep up on our service. It does make you all fluttery inside though. Almost like in high school when you would pass your crush in the hall and he would smile at you.

  341. Danae said

    Oh yeah just like that.

  342. DebS said

    Glad to hear things are going well. Eharmony is treating me pretty good. I am emailing with a guy named Eric. He is 30. He is really funny and nice. We haven’t gone out yet (mostly because my job doesn’t allow for a social life in August or the first two weeks of September), but I am hoping that we might soon.

    Here is an opinion question for anyone interesting answering. Would it be to forward of me to suggest coffee or dinner or something. I haven’t really dated all that much. I am of the opinion that it should be okay for women to ask guys out. But I think some guys think that is weird or are put off by it. I don’t know. I also feel that if a guy doesn’t like a girl taking the lead now and then, he might just not be worth my time. Thoughts?

  343. Danae said

    I was the first one to mention it with the first guy I went out with. Go for it. Women should be more forward and be the first to ask. The only thing I want to be asked and not the other way around is Will you marry me? I want the whole romantic thing. Ring down on one knee the whole shebang.

  344. Madonna said

    Go for it girl! Even if you are nervous “Love is always worth the risk.”

  345. DebS said

    I agree about proposals. I definitely want the whole shebang.

  346. Maddie Mo said

    I would completely ask him to meet for coffe or a drink. IF you have emailed with him enough to be comfortable meeting him. If you are ready to meet him ask him. I would think he would like a woman who asks for what she wants.

  347. Margaret said

    Well this explains why I was talking to myself all day. Everyone was over here and I was in Portland. Am I missing something, where’s the Birthday site?

    This is part of what I posted over there:

    Ok, ok, ok, Iโ€™ve joined the faithful. Iโ€™m estatic that it โ€œreallyโ€ is โ€œhimโ€. But let me explain the advantages of being a pessimist-when you donโ€™t expect much and donโ€™t get it, youโ€™re not that disappointed about it. Along those same lines when you donโ€™t believe something and are proved wrong, you get to celebrate twice as much. So, now Iโ€™m celebrating twice as long as you optimists. But its all good and once again, Kyle has proved why we have fallen so head over heels into fandom over him. What a sweet guy.

    So ladies, what are we going to do with Lifetime. Write more postcards, assume they’re waiting for ratings when it does come back and start writing them again, or what? I’m so confused.

  348. DebS said

    I don’t really know what more can be done at this moment. I think what has me concerned is that they haven’t shown any reruns during the off months. Cable channels are notorious for rerunning their original shows (which tends to help build an audience). I feel like this says they don’t have much confidence in the show. however, I don’t know all that much about the behind the scenes working of a tv channel.

  349. Danae said

    I am heading home now Bellas. Sweet dreams on Kyle/Henry tonight. Ciao!

  350. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hi Ya’ll…………You been baaaadddd ๐Ÿ˜‰ or are you just drawn that way ??
    Prtfvr, you silly rabbit, what do I do with my PC and iTunes?? Inquiring minds NEED to know. How do I get the best of my Henry/Kyle from my PC ๐Ÿ˜‰ ?

    Madonna so right our man can CLEARLY can run with the big dawgs! No *Shock* there.

    *Gypsy, oh sweet gods and little fishes? Like *Swimmers* ? thanx for not slapping us today. We needed to let it rip today , why I have no clue. I say why not?

    Danae my sweeeeet Gutter Sista’, youre doing very well I taught you smut and you’re running with it. I really can’t take all the credit I’ve been smutting longer than you have BUT, you can hang with the best of us. I’m so proud! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Wildstalker I love Ya’ no matter what handle you go by.

  351. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ciao Bella Daniella, love ya’ crazy chick !

  352. Margaret said

    Dizey: I sent you an email. Please go check it.

  353. Claire said

    OMG! I go visit my daughter and you wild chicks run amok!!! LOL!
    How can anyone help not loving you guys…you are all crazy good!!!!!
    Prtfvr…you constantly make me want to….pee or spit whatever I’m drinking at my screen!!!!!!!!! Leeches? yeah try 4 hanging off your suckers for 8 months!!!!
    Didn’t bother putting on tops after awhile..what for…boob coming out every minute anyway!
    Hey and no fair!!! Pretty please…PrtFvr…I’ll put a bag over my head…so he won’t actually see me…until after he sees you OK?

    I actually thought about Kyle reading everything we post…and I think he would crack up…and realize that he would have an amazing time with us…cause we are real..not all wound up and trying to be someone we’re not for his benefit.

    A long long time and many moons ago…I was a Ford model…met alot of famous people…most of them loved hanging with ordinary but fun people like us…no one likes to feel like the only reason they are liked is for their status! or their money!!!

    Anyway..need to do the glamorous things in life like grocery shopping! LOL!
    later my crazy Sistas..

  354. Maddie Mo said

    Time to get out of here for the day. Have a good night all.

  355. Margaret said

    Geez, Dizzey, didn’t mean to run you off. Come back.

  356. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Maggie May you not running me off my crazy chix ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanx for the info got busy with a customer and couldn’t get back till now.

    Claire nous sommes de mauvaises filles, mais nous donnons le service de Henri avec un sourire. Henri retourne toujours pour plus. (hee hee hee) ๐Ÿ˜›

    Going to the groomer, I sooooo need it and I’ll check you crazy chix out when I get home .

  357. Tango said

    Wow! I must say you’ve all reached new heights of fangirliness today. It has been a riot catching up with what’s been going on.

    But let me respond by saying, “Ouch! Eeww, Oh no! That’s too bad, and I’m praying for you. TMI! OMG! Yes, I agree. ROTFLMAO!” That should about cover it.

    Oh, one more thing, Anne, since they didn’t mention this before, I am Annalaise’s Producer/Assistant/Travel Agent and will be happy to coordinate said meeting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  358. Tango said

    Anne, since I missed your induction to Gypsy’s band of merry women awhile back when I was burning the candle at both ends, let me just say, Welcome! We’re glad to have you join our close-knit group of friends. It’s great to have someone with your insight and OMG website design talent. Very impressed with what you’ve created. Thanks for keeping us posted with the latest.

    Alissa, thanks for the link this morning. It got my day started off with a smile. Thanks for that.

  359. Tango said

    prtfvr – I’m with Diz – spill on the itunes/pc info. I’ve got both, and I’m ready to enhance my experience.

  360. laurel said

    I go to work for a few hours and you all loose your minds? What were you all thinking?
    Maybe that should read “What were you all drinking?” lol
    I don’t think I can truly catch up but i’ll try –

    Staples – Abdominal surgery – 11 staples – didn’t feel a thing when they took ’em out. Realized later that I have no sensation for a two inch wide section. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Percocet – makes me itch, too.
    Breast feeding – ouch. Gets more painful with each child. Worth it but not sorry I’m not doing it again, ever.
    Danae – Girl, guys don’t like it when you speculate about … stuff. Always asume the best, it makes them happy. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Trust prtfvr’s imagination and tivo on this one!
    Gypsy – School starts tomorrow! How about lunch next week.
    Arrowyn & Elizabeth – pick a day and I’ll meet you guys on this side of town.
    Moonbeam – How was your first day of school? I suspect I will have to call and check on you this weekend. Love ya’.
    Claire – Skipped the shirt? ROTFLMAO I guess I never figured anyone would try to feed all four that way.

    Everyone else – keep up the good work! I needed a quick dip in the gutter before I go out to do all the last of summer running around I must do today.

    Hmmm, my post just disappeared… wonder what that’s all about.

    I just dropped in to say hello and “carry on” everyone.
    Thank’s for the gutter tour. lol

    iTunes: OH MY! I love iTunes! Can’t you use it to…ahem…enhance a picture for those up close an personal moments? I’ll…look into what I did specifically but it was easy whatever it was. I’ll email you guys.

    Tango: Please coordinate all Annalaise’s travel with me so that I can keep her bookings straight. You know how in demand she is. What with her entourage and all. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  364. AlisaSG said

    oh Claire – you’re too funny describing your quads (during their nursing days)!

    It took me a while to figure out that’s what the *leeches* were. and you’re right about the shirts. Can’t be (too) bashful around that sort of life, at all. ๐Ÿ˜€

    as for everyone else sharing..
    you’ve all become one of my favorite reading highlights .. you’ve been tremendously blessed with a great sense of humor.. and I think Kyle would laugh ..oy! just remember ladies, what would happen if his mom joined us! I kept thinking of that last night and wondered if she’d ever stop by incognito, and no one ever knew..! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    as for the surgeries and all that’s connected there –
    (((((((((((hugs & prayers to you all..!!!))))))))))))
    yes, my legs did sort of go squeamish a few times. My hubby just had a mole lanced, and got his sutures out this week.. every time he mentioned it, my legs turned into jello..

    oh, and Margaret –
    I have no idea what a FACEBOOK is (that’s a new one to me, even from the Canadians posting on the few, other sci-fi sites that I do visit). I’m guessing it’s something similar to a fan club or web site (book of faces was my first thought!)… It sounds like it might be similar to a Live Journal or MySpace type of web site, from the descriptions.

  365. lwildstar said

    just stopping in to say hello!
    Hell of a day….I just love the fact that no matter what mood I’m in I can come here and get cheered up….!
    i love you guys!
    The dragon lady decided to have at me again over the temps – that I am suposed to be suporvising them and I’m not doing a good job – I was so close to smacking her! ***you shouldn’t be letting the temps do this***you shouldn’t let the temps do that*** Well #%$&()(^$#%& – then pay me twice as much and I’ll do the two jobs becasue thats pretty much what I’m doing now! If I can’t give the temp work, ah duh what is she doing? ooo she’s allowed to answer the phone and make copies! Big whooppeey ding dong!
    I finally just walked away. I think I may have to address this issue with the higher powers – my written job description says I have NO suporvisory authority – but unfortunatly HR is worthless, they can’t even hire a person for the receptionist position….they admit that they’ve given me a raw deal in having to train the temps and eventually the replacment, but helloo if I ‘m not allowed to give them work …….uuuugggg……. No worthy canedates? I’d like to see some of these people, and see what shes turning away………… uuuuuuuuuuuggggggg its so frustrating!

    Ok sorry needed to vent!

    Needed a Paul fix today but he wasn’t in…

    DebS – ASK! Lunch, coffee, a walk in the park….nothing dramatic…. I wouldn’t have even gotten this far with Paul (ok ok ok I haven’t gotten that far) but the point is – I asked him out to lunch to break past the light chit chat – He would never have asked me…..I am learning, slowly, to start taking the intiative – yes yes I know – grab Paul and kiss him! I keep hearing that….sorry I’m not that brave yet!

    Ordered some more post cards! I just can’t understand why LT isn’t startign to advertise “the return”….more frustration!

    Ok off to forage for food! and a shower!

  366. DebS said

    lwildstar-Thanks for the advice! I think most of us are in agreement. Go for it..so I think I will. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really need to prepare for my class tomorrow..but really I just want to veg on the couch.

  367. lwildstar said

    DebS – I can soooo understand that – but don’t veg too long, you may grow roots!

  368. prtfvr said

    wildstar: No need to apologize for venting. I completely understand, believe me! *hugs* This too shall pass…I hope.

    iTunes lets you enlarge or reduce the image then you cut out what you want to look at and view it if further detail at your leisure. Yum!

    Diz / Prtfvr – Thanks! oh I so wanted to Gibbs Smack her – but that would be too nice for the mood shes put me in…grrrr….I have been trying so hard not to “take it out” on the others in the office.
    My cousin mailed my B-day present today – she said I should have it Friday (she didn’t want to tourcher me until she visits at the end of the month)- its BT related but I have no clue what she could have gotten me, so I will let you know! I’m so excited!

    Glad you could join us Mel! have fun at Homecoming!

    I started editing chapters 1 thru 4 – Madonna and Dr duChat – I’m lookinng forward to your comments when you get a chance – Still haven’t put in any location detail yet – just got a bunch of stuff about Portland, OR from Wikiepedia – I may have to ask the Portland gang for help later….I am considering putting up a wordpress posting (Thank you Rif for the directions) so that all of you can start taking a look – havent quite gotten up the curage yet – but after the writers chats we’ve had I’m starting to feel more confident…you guys up for another chat this Friday night?
    I’ve been writing for the last hour? and I’ve nearly finished chapter ten, but I’m so tired – I’m off to bed.

    Talk at you lovely ladies tomorrow!

  375. Tango said

    prtfvr – oh no my dear – my apologies! No foul was intended your way. These are talents that I wished I owned, and I am highly impressed with anyone who possesses them. I love what you have done over at the henhouse. And I must say I anxiously await the next installment of the comic or would that be graphic novel?

    As soon as I get the green light from Anne, I will start all travel planning, and coordinate that with you ~ so that is a party of….?

  379. laurel said

    lwildstar – I have not forgotten about editing for you, but how do you want me to send it back? I am trying to figure it out. I am also looking for some good pics or postcards that would show you some of the highlights of Portland and Seattle. I think I saw a map of the maindowntown area that would work for you. If you look at your map and pic a path I could even go down and walk it (I have a digital movie camera as well as reg. digital camera).

    I’m up for writers’ chat or any other chat this Friday. I should actually be home for a change so I am excited about the possibility. Let me know!

    prtfvr – Honey, how is it you can make looking at i-tunes sound so HOT! I don’t think I’m getting my money’s worth. Spill! What are you doing on there?

    Maybe I don’t want to know. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  380. laurel said

    Wow! Looks like I have more typos than usual. main downtown area… pick a path…

    I have my reading glasses on now.

    Over my bi-focal contact lenses.

    ‘laise, dumpling, just give me a date and I’ll work with your coordinator on the Annalaise Blood TIes Tour 2007 – 2008! WOO HOO!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Tango: Ok, I was wondering. Actually, I suck. I know I suck but I’m glad no one says it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a newb, what can I say.

    Laurel: I am iTunes number 1 fan, baby! Between that and my Macbook Pro, I’m an Apple whore! One day they shall fall but not today!

    Here’s the thing. Everyone’s looking at Kyle’s face because he’s so darned beautiful. I however, have a one track mind with very little traffic and end up looking at his face.

    I’m a sad little monkey, is what I am.

  382. Tango said

    I love iTunes, iPod and the whole 9 yards. But I am not not an apple computer user. I know it is the perfect thing for you websters, but I’ll stick with the smaller less complicated iToys.

    Don’t be sad little mokey! It just sounds like you need some extra therapy sessions with Dr. duChat to get your deviant mind in check. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  383. laurel said

    I always suspected your train ran on that track prtfvr.
    I too am an apple person, but my i-mac needs a serious uprgrade/replacement. I am working so that I can afford something with greater power.
    Once I get that sucker I will be after you for info on the best uses of i-tunes and other good stuff. Can’t afford the Pro version but anything would be an improvement.
    love ya’

  384. Tango said

    Laurel, do you have an apple store close by?
    What accessories have you gotten for your ipod? Have you got the docking station and the itravel accessory that allows you to broadcast through your car stereo?

    I picked up the Bose docking station and I love it! What great sound. I highly recommend it. I also got one of the itravel kits for the car, two actually. The first one I got for about $40, but that was something you just plug into the ipod and it didn’t get good reception, so I went back to my apple store and picked up the one that was about $80 and it plugs into the cigarette lighter therefore it also charges while it plays. It gives a better reception, but I can’t wait until I get my new company car next year it will have a built-in mp3 player adapter connnection.

  385. prtfvr said

    I have iTunes on my office PC too so it’s not confined to Macs. It’s good on XP too. So I’m a mixed media kinda gal. Got questions, I gots answers…eventually. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Laurel/Tango did you get my email?

  386. prtfvr said

    I SO want the car attachment for the iPod. Or one of those new fangled cars that has a place built in for it. Love BOSE too although my husband bought an expensive DVD/CD player that sucks. But everything else has been good. I also want the BOSE headphones that cover your entire ear. SWEET!

  387. DebS said

    Tango, did you ever get the tivo thing worked out?

  388. Sorry Dizey, Melanie went to bed. The school bus arrives at 6:30am. That’s mighty early for the little tyke, and I used those words quite loosely. She is 5′ 9″ and has been looking down on me for about 2 years now. I’m 5′ 6″ I’ll pass you message along tomorrow.

    >>โ€˜laise, dumpling, just give me a date and Iโ€™ll work with your coordinator on the >>Annalaise Blood TIes Tour 2007 – 2008! WOO HOO!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m ready to go! Just be sure you book a large suite for me and Henry dear, for partying into to wee hours of the morning. Hot tub, mini bar, oh you know! Extra heavy drapes too to block the sun and all. Oh heck, reserve the entire top floor of the hotel! We’ll bring the whole gang!

    Can you say Apple whore, too or maybe two!

    Iwildstar — I’m looking forward to reading it as soon as I can. I hope to get to it over the weekend.

    Melanie gave me a story that she and her friend wrote that I’m supposed to edit too.

    Some much reading, so little time!

    I’m copying Rifkind. Since she posted a picture of her vision of Ra, I though I should post a picture of my vision of Kieron. My site is linked to my name. Enjoy!

    Henry darling, please don’t be jealous dear, you’ll always be first in my heart.

  389. Tango said

    prtfvr – got your email – thanks! I couldn’t open the first picture – format wasn’t supported for some reason. But I got the second opened. Oh moma!

    Are you saying you extracted this photo from itunes without a special program like photoshop? I gots to know how to do that man! Pleeeease tell me my little monkey!

    Debs, not yet. The lightning also fried my coaxial cables from the satellite which need to be replaced. It may not be the receiver, but we wont know for sure until they replace the cable. I brought my TIVO from the bedroom (which is still working) into the den to set it up, but it wasn’t getting a signal in there, so there is still hope that the den unit may still work. Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for asking ๐Ÿ™‚

  390. prtfvr said

    Annalaise: Why would I rent an entire suite when you’re only going to use the built in swimming pool and bedroom? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  391. Well, I like a change in scenery on occasion.

  392. So whad’ya think of Kieron?

  393. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Prtfvr I went to iTunes and I couldn’t do anything but enlarge the whole pic or reduce it. Waaaaaa make it work, oh got the email. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›

    Well…mes amis..while driving by to say bonne nuit…you all managed to crack me up again!!!
    Laurel…the doctors said since they only weighed 2lbs and change..that breast milk would be best,also because of the immunity factor…but oy vey he never mentioned how many times those tiny guys would want some!!!! especially Victoria and Elijah!!! of course they are now the biggest!
    Alisa…I guess I was able to be not bashful..since it was just Nikki and me with the babies!…she used to laugh and laugh at me with all those babies hanging from me!
    Um…once again…the tour ain’t going no where without me!!
    Iwildstar…Just give her a French Frap!!!! LOL!!(when I was 20,my then husband,saw me slap a girl that stole some money from my house,he said I scared him,and he went around saying”The French know how to slap! the arm comes gracefully flying all the way from behind her head and when it connects it goes FRAP!!! and leaves the reciever of the Frap stunned and on the floor!”)

    LOL!!! this is still a big joke when family gets together!

    anyway my crazies…Je t’aime tous tellement…jusqu’au demain…
    rรชves doux…Bonne Nuit!!!


  395. prtfvr — What’s the I tunes trick? Inquiring minds want to know? I usually just use Grab-It for screen captures.

    BTW — I’m running a 1 GHz G4 EMAC w/640 MB RAM OS X version 10.3.9. It’s a nice little machine. Pretty too!

  396. laurel said

    I have the attachment for ipod in my van, but the outlet is clear down on the floor. Dumbest thing Honda ever did. They moved it the next year. I am using it in the old ’89 Honda, but not much until it cools off here. No A/c in the little bugger.
    Yes there is a Mac store very near!

    Sorry, I was only able to lurk a bit tonight ladies. I was preparing for my class tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m about to start cussing.


    I think the title in the link speaks for itself but the article has more words. Same info, though.

    Good night Debs – have sweet dreams of a bright tomorrow!

  400. prtfvr said

    Annalaise/Diz: If you right click on the little expand box on the bottom right, you can adjust the size, so to speak. Or you can drag it as large as you want. OH GOD!! I need to take a moment for myself. Talk amoungst yourselves for 5 minutes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sent out my favorite paused perv photo to a few of you. That’s from my personal stock. Never intended for release. I’m very patient. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  401. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Laurel, my outlet in my Blazer is close to the floor also. I just shove it in the regular lighter outlet and listen to Blood Ties on the way to and from work. At the lights I manuver(sp) it so I can watch a little too ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love my iPod best thing since sliced bread.

    Dr.duChat I assume the Grab it is part of that damned Photoshop I want so badly?

    Claire my sweet love the French Frap, will tuck that away for a rainy day.

  402. Tango said

    Annalaise – Is the Grab It software you are referring to the one at this website? Is that price right? I thought it would be more expensive than that.

    ‘Eureka’ Looking At Another Season, ‘Flash Gordon’ Is Not

    So if only Lifetime TV would get around to RENEWING BT, we could have Correen back.

    But I’m depressed and don’t want to contemplate it all. Not only was the previous bit of news discouraging, but I overcooked my pasta. Hard to do with whole wheat pasta. I think a cheesy murder mystery and a bowl of ice cream are calling my self-pitying name.

  405. prtfvr said

    Grand Mistress G: Don’t be depressed yet. Look how fast Flash Gordon was dropped. At least they haven’t killed BT yet. Maybe it will live on in Canada.

  406. laurel said

    You know, I have watched every episode so often that I don’t even have to see the screen. I haven’t had it on in the car but I do let it play while I’m registering folks for the quilt show. Every so often there is something I have to see and I pause for a quick glance.
    For now the Van is not playing along because when I removed my charger for the cell phone it pulled out the entire housing and wire system of the connection. Rats!

    I have a “flower power” iMac with OSX 10.3.9. Not enough power for me anymore. Better than nothing, and I still like it better than my husband’s new Sony Vio with whatever came just before Vista. We love the Mac commercials because we really understand the differences.

    Claire, I love the whole French Frap story!
    Gypsy, good to see you are hanging around here tonight.

  407. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Awww Gypsy woman sorry so sad. But if we get Gina back that totally rocks for us and for Blood Ties , interesting twist to drag her demon butt back from the abyss.

    Tango that’s awesome if that’s the one. Cheap too. Hmmmmmmm ๐Ÿ˜‰

  408. lwildstar said

    laurel – I’ll email yo tomorrow…I guess you can use the same system that Rifkind did for marking edits…and we can figure out the other stuff.
    Yeah, I know I said I was gong to bed – but I started reading over some notes and ended up on the computer! just can’t stay away!

    and to those looking at my writng – thanks guys!

    tried to go over to LT to post but It kicked me off! no fair! I’ll try again tomorrow….Their killing us – do thay realize that?

    Oh well.

    Prtfvr – emailed you a question…

    now I really must get some sleep.

    Night guys!

  409. Tango said

    Love “Eureka” and I hate to say it, but I just can’t get into “Flash Gordon” I’ve tried several times, but it’s just not as high on the entertainment meter as BT. Gina needs to give it up and put that hair up is some bizarre pigtail do and get her butt back over to the BT set with eyeliner in tow. The show won’t be the same without her.

  410. lwildstar said

    Hey it ate my post!

    Laurel I’ll email you…

    Prtfvr – I sent you an email

    not going to try to repost – well see if it ever shows up.

    Sorry about that I was trying to answer but I had to reboot. Go to this link for the Garab program. It’s a free download. Mine came with my Mac.

    Night Diz!

    Wildstalker – I might just keep that!

  414. Annalaise duChat said

    That’s not the same one I have but since its freeware it’s worth a try. The one that came on my Mad is called Grab 1.2. It says it’s Manufactured by Apple. I’ll check the site.

  415. laurel said

    prtfvr – got the e-mail and pic but sadly couldn’t tell what I was supposed to be seeing. Really, really dark…. no clue.
    lwildstar – I’ll watch for e-mail from you.
    Gypsy – was that a little good news about Torchwood? Actually I am more pissed about Dresden than Flash Gordon. I want Gina available for more BT!
    Annalaise – What is the Garab program for? Maybe it’s something my daughters will want for school projects.
    Dizey – anything new on Robbie? I sure think about you and your family a lot.

    I am looking forward to having just about anything new to watch at this point. I will be watching CSI (the original), Heroes, Desperate Houswives (which my husband calls Despicable Horsethieves) and Criminal Minds. Blood Ties will trump any and all of those, of course.
    What do the rest of you watch?

  416. vicki said

    hey girls….I thought that maybe Kyle should be warned

    Dear Kyle…
    If you are reading these posts please know that most of us are harmless..(well I am not to sure about the “Portland Gang” they look like they could be stalkers) But we only gather to support each other in our trials and our addiction for BloodTies…

    But know that some of our number are single women with active imaginations and even more active lust drives. well we married girls are right there with them, but that’s beside the point. Just know that we THROUGHLY enjoy your little show and mean you no harm. We will return you to your family in due time. ( Wait…this is starting to sound like a ransom note.)

    Lets try again…Kyle you rock…you won the gene pool(Hell you must have spent hours soaking) and we are in awe of your talent…live well and prosper…and for God’s sake GIVE US MORE!!!!!!!

    in gentle love..
    your humble, harmless fans.

  418. prtfvr said

    vicki: ROTFLMAO! I knew that it was suspicious that there could be THAT many fans in Portland close enough to get together. They’re obviously up to something! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  419. Annalaise duChat said

    Sorry that was supposed to be Grab. It is a basic screen capture program. Just click on ant image that appears on your screen (Even Itunes video) and it captures the frame in a still.

    This one claims to be both Mac and PC But I don’t see the Mac OS listed. Apple usually supplies a screen capture program with the it’s OS anyway. Grab is the one that came with 10.2. and I believe the newer ones have it too.

    For older OS’s (pre X) There ia a Keyboard command to take a picture of your screen. I just have to remember what it is. Give me a sec.

  420. prtfvr said

    I’m gearing up for my shows too!

    CSI LV & NY
    Ghost Whisperer
    Supernatural (Oh Dean and Sam, I love you so!)
    Blood Ties

    and it’s on all the time but

    The Daily Show – Damn I love me some Jon Stewart!

    Mac provides Preview with their operating system. That’s what I use. It’s basic but does the job. Yeah, boy-EE!

    Hey Rob’s hanging in , he did have a seizure yesterday and Mom said she thinks he just fell face first onto the floor, hurt his left wrist and his nose and cheek look like he boxed a little. He normally doesn’t just fall he’s usually laying down trying to chase away the headache or sometimes in his sleep. But this is probably maybe 2nd time he ever fell. Luckily the home health nurse was here checking on my dad’s foot status and helped my mom take care of Rob. It was a two-fer for Toni (nurse). Anyway trying not control everything and I actually feel a lot lighter so it’s a good thing. Thanx for all your prayers my peeps really appreciate all of them.

    I watched “John from Cincinnati” and loved it , problem I can’f find anyone else who watched it to talk about it. I like the original CSI, NICS (love Mark Harmon), Entourage on HBO, Supernatural (YUMMM), I do wanna see Moonlight just to see their spin on the vamp thingy. But Blood Ties man I’m so ready 5:55, and the Christina ep I want to see that one badddd. Come on October.

  423. prtfvr said

    Damn DIZ but I’m sorry to hear that! *hugs*

  424. Tango said


    I too like Heroes, and Despicable Horsetheives *lol* along with Lost. I am looking forward to seeing Chuck this fall as Gypsy has pulled back the veil on this show. I’m also a fan of Smallville. Tom Welling is one hot tamale’!

    but none of these shows hold a candle to my beloved Blood Ties.

    This is straight from Apple: I think the procedure was the same pre OSX.

    Mac OS X: Shortcuts for taking pictures of the screen
    In addition to the Grab application, you can also use keyboard shortcuts to take pictures of the screen in Mac OS X.

    To take a picture of the whole screen, press Command-Shift-3.

    To take a picture of part of the screen, press Command-Shift-4 and drag to select the area you want.

    The picture is saved as a TIFF file on your Desktop. Note: Mac OS X 10.2 and later saves pictures as PDF files. See document 107078 “Mac OS X 10.2: Screen Shots Are Saved in PDF, May Be Converted” for additional information.

    To copy the screen capture to the Clipboard instead of saving it as a file, press Control-Command-Shift-3 to copy the entire screen to the Clipboard, or Control-Command-Shift-4 to copy the selected range to the Clipboard.

    Ok everything that Annalaise just wrote had to be able to split the atom. Whaaaaaaa I’m just gonna do the free download for XP and see what kind of trouble I can get in.

    Prtfvr, thanx but we’re cool and he’s doing ok, very sore and can’t breath through his nose very well, but we’re better than sparking everyday.

    Oh, and that done work. cause now I have Leetle pdf files all over my desktop!

    Dizey so sorry to hear about your brother. Hang in there,

    Love those Mac commercials.

    So now that I’ve used up all my writing time playing I guess maybe I’ll just turn in…

    Good night all!

  431. laurel said

    Oh yeah, I watch CSI:NY, too! I actually watch a lot of TV, so I will be checking on lots of the new things. I haven’t watched Supernatural yet. Guess I’ll have to check it out.

    Note – Portland just has better more people with good taste, who are brave enough to jump on a blog and make friends. It is a pretty friendly place to live.

    Vicki dear, that was really sounding like a ransom note! I loved it! lol

    Sorry to hear about Robbie having an off day. I’m glad he isn’t hurt any worse. Prayers are never ending for you all.

    Tango – my husband watches lost, but I just never really got into it. I have to tell you that I actually have no idea what really happened at the end of Desperate Housewives. I switched to Blood Ties at 10:00 and missed the last two minutes of DH! My family has teased me about missing the most important scene, but I have my priorities. I have no regrets. ๐Ÿ™‚

  432. laurel said

    Good night dears!
    prtfvr I got the last set of pics. Thank you!
    Annalaise – I copied that into a word document so I can print it in some humongous type and read it from the paper while I try it out.
    It did rather sound like you should be able to split the atom with all that! LOL

    Vicki – of course I pretty much watch all of those too. Nice to meet a fellow TV-aholic.
    I’d better head for bed pretty soon too. School kids need support at about 6:20 am. Someone has to play back up for the alarm clocks the first week or so. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good night all!

  433. moonbeam said

    Hi all!

    Laurel called and pulled me out of the deep abyss to check out the note from Kyle, OH MY!!!! I just had to pull myself over here! I had to go cold turkey and stay away from everything BT in order to focus on work. (the whole self-discipline thing can be difficult for me)

    Tango, I’m also waiting for Heros, Smallville & DH (Monk figures in too.) Naturally, October is holding a big spot now :>)

    Just stopped in to say Hi, have to work some more~then bed,

  434. rifkind said

    I take a few days away… and you gals are deep into the gutter!!
    Poor Kyle, if he ever dared to venture into estrogen land… what would he think of us.. hee hee.. well, we are a lot of fun and VERY creative ladies!

    Thanks so much for allowing us to wish Kyle a genuine and sincere, “Happy Birthday”, I am so happy to think that he was actually able to read our messages. Thank you so much!

    Annalaise duChat,
    Kieron pics, I love them… I have to say that I LOVE looking into guys eyes.. so I like the first picture best…and of course, period costumes are soooo romantic, and I like darker hair on guys myself… Heath looks like he has too much peroxide in his hair.. but black leather is always a hit… no I can imagine Kieron and add that Irish accent… ok, time to melt!


  435. rifkind said

    my previous post should say,
    “Now I can imagine Kieron…”
    It’s almot 2 AM here…. so for some reason, can’t seem to type correctly!

    I’m glad that I could help with the writer’s block. It was nice to chat about the story and where you would like it to go. I should be caught up at work tomorrow, and can take my lunch hour and read what you’ve written and posted about Kieron.. I’m looking forward to it.

  436. Anne said

    I thought a new thread had been started and I was mystified that the Portland Gang thread was so quiet ….. until I noticed that you were all still here, planning the Annalaise Blood Ties Tour 2007 – 2008

    Annalaise – I’ll have my people contact your people so we can agree on the best way to contact Kyle’s people for a happy outcome for all ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I will need a list of everyone in your entourage, as with that kind of tour, I’m sure every Tom, Dick and Harriet will try to weasle onboard without having the required credentials.

    Tango –
    Thanks – I’m mainly a collector of facts. I’m happy you think I display them nicely ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Quick drive-by because it’s so late. I had planned to spend this evening catching up in the blog and replying (long, long overdue). That was before I had to work until 7pm. However, I did catch up on some emails. I thought you might like this one. I have a regular list of sites that I go to every day for TV news and gossip. Zap2it is one of them and TV Gal (Amy Amatangelo) has a column that I really like. I kind of went with the whole “nothing ventured, nothing gained” thing and wrote her an email asking if she had ever seen BT — I hadn’t read anything about it in her columns. Anyway, here it is, with her reply:

    Sent: Mon 9/3/2007 10:44 PM
    To: AmyTVGal-Zap2it
    Subject: Returning Fall Show

    I’m glad your email is working again.

    I’m one of “those” viewers that has never written to anyone like you before, but I wanted to thank you for your column. I have been faithfully reading it for a long time and, although I don’t always like the same shows that you do, I very much appreciate the way you write and the enthusiasm you bring to your job.

    I do not remember reading anything in your column about “Blood Ties” when it started last Spring, but I might have missed your comments. If you haven’t seen the show, I very much recommend it. It’s on Lifetime (please, hear me out!), which is definitely not the place you would expect it to be and probably not the best place for it to be. But, there it is. You can catch up, if you need to, by watching the first 12 episodes on video on Lifetime — or however you get to watch past episodes.

    Blood Ties is based on Tanya Huff’s “Blood” books. In fact, last Spring, she posted her introductory comments on the Lifetime blog each week after each episode aired. She’s a fan, has written on of the episodes, and was an extra in another episode. This show (or at least the actor playing the vampire) has generated a “cult” following all over the world, and I’m afraid Lifetime doesn’t quite know what to do with the tiger it has by the tail. Just by word-of-mouth, the show had two fan sites on the Web before it even aired its first episode! BT is a “vampire” genre show, but it is much more than that. It’s been compared to Buffy, Forever Knight, Angel, and more, but it’s not really like any of them. It’s funny, spooky, mysterious, has an incredible love triangle, and isn’t like anything I’ve ever seen on TV (and I’ve been watching TV for a very, very long time). It stars Christina Cox, Dylan Neal, and Kyle Schmid (as the vamp and the main reason for the cult following). In the opinion of many, including me.

    If you haven’t seen the show, please don’t let the network it’s on dissuade you. I’d appreciate it if you would just take a look — at the very least, to see Kyle as “Henry” — and publish your comments (even if you don’t like it).

    Thank you, and keep up the good work!

    Hi Carol,

    I actually haven’t checked out “Blood Ties” but now I want to! Thanks so much for writing and for reading.

    I’ll try to check out the show very soon. Write any time.


    Sent: Thursday, September 06, 2007 12:51 AM
    To: ‘AmyTVGal-Zap2it’

    Wow! I didn’t expect a reply. I’ve gone all fangirly! And I’m way too old for that. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you like the show — and especially Kyle.

    I don’t know if you ever check out fan sites, but when LifeTime shut down Tanya’s (their) blog, one of the fans opened her blog for anyone who wanted to “come on over” and discuss the show (and Henry) while we were waiting (impatiently) for the second half. That blog has been almost as popular as the original one and many of us have made lasting friendships because of it. In fact, one Saturday last month, six of us who live in the same general area in Oregon got together to meet. And we’re going to get together again for lunch next week. There’s a real diverse group of women who post there and the ages run from teens to … well … let’s just say “older than teens”. If you’d like to visit, even if you lurk, we’re at https://msgypsy.wordpress.com/. You’d be very welcome. Even Tanya has dropped in.

    Anyway, as you can tell, I’m a big fan of the show. I hope you become one, too. Thank you again for replying to my email.

    Even if she ends up not liking it — as if! — if she puts it in her column, somebody might get curious.

    My contribution to the cause.

  438. Anne said

    Oh Carol – that was WELL done!

    And how can she not like Blood Ties – and Henry?
    I guess I’ll go check what else she likes.

  439. Anne said

    I just visited http://www.bloodties.tv/the-blog and saw:

    “Coming Soon: Watch for official Blood Tiesโ„ข merchandise.”


  440. Anne said

    DANG! I wish I could edit my previous message instead of writing a new one.

    Kaleidoscope HAS to ship internationally – it would be so cruel – not to mention mean – if fans in the UK and Germany and France and elsewhere (including Denmark where BT doesnt air) were excluded from getting their hands on STUFF! LOOT!

    I’m thinking black messenger bag with logo.
    It’s not like I don’t have plenty of bags already – I’ll just have to ditch some to make room for a new one.
    IF they are making BT messenger bags.

    Kaleidoscope coming out with merchandise makes me even more optimistic about a second season.

    I may have Micawber blood ๐Ÿ˜‰

  441. msgypsy said

    Arrowyn, we’re getting together for lunch? Did I miss a memo?

    My favorite pontificating soldier (married to my favorite sardonic North Dakotan) says we need (NEED!) to make the trek out to Dark Horse in Milwaukie. So if we really are getting together for lunch, may I vote for that, please?

    And if I did miss a memo, remember, keeping up is not so easy for me these days. Not only am I old (HUSH!!!!!) I have no chocolate in the house and I’m running low on coffee.

    good morning ladies!

    wow you got busy after I logged off last night!
    Well it looks like my post nerver put in an appearence.

    Dr. Du Chat – I’ve lost your link to Keiron – please email to me so I can catch up! I think the computer ate it!

  448. Annalaise duChat said

    Good Morning Ladies —

    I’m putting together a back up band for the tour. See prtfvr about signing up for auditions. Yup you got it! I’m going to pull out the the old guitar and dust it off, pack up the electric piano and practice my best rendition of Linda Rondstadt. You’re no good, You’re no good, You’re no good, Baby You’re no good.

    Or maybe Sarah Mac: You come out at night,That’s when the energy comes
    And the dark sides light And the vampires roam….
    Can ya hear me baby?

    and a little Heart: He’s a Magic Man Yeah!

    You guys with me?

  449. Danae said

    Buongiorno Bellas Quick drive by. Diz I am sorry to her about Rob again. I hope it all gets straightened out soon.

    Gypsy-I refuse to give up hope. We will get more episodes. How can they simple over look all the work everyone has been doing for our show?

    prtfvr-Those pictures? OMG OMG OMG I was not expecting those when I got to work this morning.

    Anne-I am certainly part of Annalaise’s entourage just because I say so.

    My TV line up?
    Ghost Whisperer (I love her husband very cute)
    Supernatural (let me just say Jensen Ackles)
    Bones (David Boreanaz-nuff said)
    Greys Anatomy (McDreamy)
    Cold Case
    Blood Ties (Henry)
    Blood Ties (Henry)
    Blood Ties (Henry)
    Did I say Blood Ties (Henry)?

    Talk atcha at lunch.

  450. Danae said

    Oh wait Annalaise. I can sing! I was in choir since I was in 4th grade and I started taking voice lessons in high school. I can sing! I will be in the band.

  451. Annalaise duChat said

    Let me hear a doo wop!

  452. Annalaise duChat said

    How about an oooooo baby?

  453. Danae said

    I can do more then Doowop and ooooooo baby. I was trained for broadway and top 40 singing. More broadway then top 40 because I stopped taking lessons not long after I started that.

  454. Danae said

    I wasn’t going anywhere in my lessons. I wasn’t getting better or worse and she was raising her prices again and I didn’t think it was worth it if I was going nowhere.

  455. Annalaise duChat said

    OK you got the job!

  456. Danae said


  457. Margaret said

    I can sing background, way far background.

    And where are all these pictures you all are talking about, come on sharies!
    Don’t make me beg you like Lifetime, please email them to me.

  458. laurel said

    Annalaise, I sing too! Pick me! Pick me!
    I play guitar, and some flute (I want to learn alto flute). I am also willing to help set up! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Trust me, you need me. I can sew costumes and….

  459. Danae said

    One more thing about Kyle’s message. You know he posted that from Toronto and that is only a days drive from me. Anyone want to come with me to pay him a visit? I feel so privileged to be a days drive from him.

  460. Danae said

    Isn’t Tango our resident diva or is it Laurel? Which one is in a band?

  461. Annalaise duChat said

    OK Margaret & Laure, see prtfvr about getting signed up!

    And Kyle is probably closer to me as the crow flies that any of you. Right across the lake! Anybody got a big boat?

  462. Madonna said

    Guys Iโ€™m SO in for the tour. Iโ€™ll work it into my schedule somehow. Even if I have to hold my eyes open with toothpicks and you all have to paint me peach to take care of that death warmed over look, Iโ€™m there!

    I canโ€™t sing a lick or play an instrument. Iโ€™m tone deaf and I have no voice for it. (Imagine a dying cat), but Iโ€™ll coordinate everything and work on set design. Iโ€™ll also run everything by our guy to make sure โ€˜tis all to his liking. And Iโ€™ll take care of all the on-stage pyrotechnics. Our guy can help me with that as well. Iโ€™m sure we could create some great fireworks together.

  463. laurel said

    Man, I knew I should have let my husband buy the boat.

    Wait a minute…I didn’t just say that!
    No boat, no boat!

    I am soooo not in a band. lol I sing in church and do lots of campfire style music. For those who remember her my voice is sort of Karen Carpenter. Or maybe Kathy Matea.

    prtfvr? Do you need any help with that list? Maybe we should have some official membership badges made up…

  464. Anzia said

    *jumps up and down* I can sing, I can sing, I can sing! I don’t know exactly WHY we’re discussing singing but I can. I’ve been singing as long as I’ve been talking…if I do it well will have to be everyone else’s job in figuring out. ^_^

    Regarding Kyle reading all this, all I can say is the curtain I’m hiding behind right now is shaking w/laughter! OMG! You guys are a hoot! I’m SURE if he’s gotten our box and came here looking for the girls who sent it he’s not too worried. Seriously, It’s really obvious that we’re a great bunch who sometimes toe the line but definitely don’t obliterate it. ๐Ÿ™‚ And for the record, I’m 22 yrs old, 5’10”, thin and plump in the right places, with blonde hair and blue/green eyes (yup, i’m just like a mood ring!).

    Claire-that’s great! I was always a bit iffy about first days. Right now i’d give almost ANYTHING to go back to school! I never realized just how much sheltering the school atmosphere and mentality did.

    DebS-I like kohl’s alot too. Definitely understand the great outfit thing. I bought a pair of pants from Kohl’s and have been trying to find a shirt to go with it. Yesterday I bought a few from Wally world and wouldn’t ya know. PERFECT match to the pants. OMG! It’s so cute! I’m TOTALLY taking pictures and will send ’em around. *giggles* It’s so great! Shirt might be a teeny tiny but too low cut but I’ll have a tank-top on under it anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Annalaise- um…*rubs toe in dirt and looks down* I know you have a large group of people coming already but…um…I could be your secretary or personal assistant. Can I come with you? *looks hopeful* please?

    What I would do to meet Mr. Schmid…wouldn’t you have to meet and schmooze with the right people to get you that access? I guess I’d go a hunting for those people first…or even better! We could all pool our money and pay for a HUGE advertising campaign on billboards asking Kyle to visit the site or something! ^_^

  465. Annalaise duChat said

    You also have to do the make-up, don’t forget.

  466. Madonna said

    I’ll be a busy hen but I’ll be there.

  467. Annalaise duChat said

    What shall we name the band?

  468. Annalaise duChat said

    ….and Z you can be a back-up singer slash secretary!

  469. Madonna said

    Hey Anzia,
    Did you enjoy your day off yesterday?

    How about something simple like Kyle’s Chicks?

  470. Danae said

    That’s cute but it doesn’t zing for me.

  471. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey ya’ll !

    I was signing Sarah last night in the tub, a little Surfacing, love that CD, I’ll sing backup. I’m a chameleon I adapt ๐Ÿ˜‰ I play no instruments but my brother plays drums I’ve been bugging him to teach me anyway. Great exercise too ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh and the diva is our own Miss Vicki ๐Ÿ˜›

  472. Annalaise duChat said

    OK official contest to name the band.The winner gets to have their picture photoshopped into a scene from Blood Ties. Since I’m making the prize I get to be the judge. Contest begins now. Good Luck!

  473. Danae said

    Vicki That’s it. I couldn’t remember. What were you signing Sarah to? A new record contract?

  474. Madonna said

    Iโ€™m sorry to hear about Robโ€™s siezure. Iโ€™m glad he wasnโ€™t hurt any worse than he was. Hopefully its just his bodyโ€™s adjustment to the change in medicine. My prayers are with you and your family.

  489. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all!!!

    Dizey-Sorry to hear about the seizure, hope your Bro gets over his injuries quickly.

    Or Henry’s Harem and the Wantabees?

    Once Bitten & Coming Back for More?

    Henry’s Sweet Snacks?

    Once Bitten, Twice Shy?

    Are you calling us wannabees Margaret?

  494. Danae said

    Can’t Fight the Moonlight?

  495. Margaret said

    You don’t necessarily have to identify people unless yu wanted the lead singers to be his harem and the back up signers the wantabees. I just thought it had a ring to it. Actually the girls in the audience could be the wantabees, don’t you think? Of course we would have to have Blood Ties videos running behind the band at all times.

  496. Danae said

    But of course.

  497. Danae said

    And I was only joking

  498. Madonna said

    Maddie Mo,
    Iโ€™m doing well. Just a slave to my job is all. How are you?

    Speaking of which…. Danae, Arenโ€™t you and I supposed to be working?

    Which inspires another name for the band.

    Sweet Addiction

  499. Danae said

    Yes I am. My boss went to a food show in Georgia so I am on but being VERY careful.

  500. Margaret said

    Glad to see that the Blood Ties site changed the title of that review to: Running with My Eyes Open. They had it as Runny with My Eyes Open and that didn’t even sound good. Forgive me whoever is eating lunch right now and reading this.

    “Chix on the Menu” OMG that is so funny. (If you know me well you know that reads as Oh My Gosh) hehehe
    I actually think you could combine two of those to read “Fang Girl Chix on the Menu”

    I am trying to write a death scene in between posts but think I’ll have to park that project for a while. It is hard to channel the right emotional state for that scene while rinsing my sinuses with coffee. I was doing alright with it, since my girls have gone off to the first day of school, but you gals cheered me up too much.

  508. Madonna said

    I guess Jason came to his senses and realized he had found a great catch.

    How about “The Midnight Delights”

  509. laurel said

    Are we still meeting at the Hen House tonight? If so what time, and are we talking writing or just talking? Inquiring minds…

  510. Margaret said

    Henry Fitzroy’s Muses?

  511. Madonna said

    A writer’s chat is out for me tonight. I might be able to work it in either tomorrow or Saturday but even that is iffy.

  512. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey where’s Prtfvr ? and Claire zipped in and zipped out.

    How about …**Chix of The Bloody Ford **, **Feed Me** ,

  513. Danae said

    Tonight? I thought it was Friday night we were meeting at the Hen House.

  514. lwildstar said

    Annalaise – got the link and the picture of Keiron is fabulous! I’ve really got to find something for my guy…

    Can’t sing anymore – use to be in course – have one of those “best in a group” voices – but I’ll be a roady – carry instruments, luggage, Kyle..whooops

    Once Bitten, No-longer Shy? – I think that describes a lot of us!

    Diz – my prayers for Robbie – and (((HUGS))) for you!

    (((HUGS))) for everyone!

    Not Much going on today – I have a seminar at 2 that will last the rest of the afternoon…ug…hope I can stay awake!

    I think I’ll go do some posting at the various sites!
    Talk at you later!

  515. elizabeth said

    Geez, you guys have been busy. Okay, first off…I’m with Madonna…I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, can’t play a musical instrument, but I am darned good at organizing and can certainly set up everything. Please, let me be part of this!!!!! Oooh, I know..I’ll be security *devilish smile* I get to frisk people and stand guard over Kyle/Henry so no wannabees get too close.

    Gypsy – I am so bummed that Lifetime isn’t going to run the first *season* before they start back up again. I am getting a little frustrated with all the waiting around to hear what is going to happen to our beloved show…

    Annalaise – Loved the pictures of Keiron. I can so easily visualize him now when I am reading your work – good job, lady!!

    As for the Portland contingent; Kyle couldn’t ask for better *stalkers* LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’re organized and committed ..oh, wait…or is that being committed? Laurel, Arrowyn, gypsy …run, ladies…the guys with the white jackets are after us again…..

  516. laurel said

    Danae – So this guy wised up and called you? Good deal. Did he ask you out yet, or is he just checking to see if you’ve given up on him? Keep us posted.

  517. lwildstar said

    Writers Chat tomorrow night (Friday) Sept. 7, at the Hen House?…I’ll be around starting at 8:30 eastern, how does that sound? – so I’ll check in then…show up when you can!

  518. Maddie Mo said

    I’m good. I’m supposed to be working too, but hey my boss is in China this week. And you know what they say about the mice.

  519. elizabeth said

    Laurel, Arrowyn, Gypsy – I’d love to meet you guys for lunch! I’m open this weekend if that works for everyone. Or, we can find a day next week? Just let me know and I will be there ๐Ÿ˜‰

  520. LQTM!!! You guys are just too funny! Obviously I missed alot. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Sadly, I can’t be in a band, ’cause I have no singing talent of any kind…I can’t even be a backup singer…but my personal fav is Henry’s Harem. But since I’m already part of Spike’s harem (I SO wish) I guess that’s out. *g* I also like Fang Girl Chix on the Menu and Magnetic Vamp. Heh. Sorry, but Bloody Hell just brought to mind images of Spike. ๐Ÿ™‚ And Feed Me? Oh heck, they’re ALL funny. See? This is what I get for having no time to speak of.

    Oh and Dr. DuChat, had to borrow that pic on your site. And let me just say, if that is your image of Keiron…I SO want him. Yuummmmmm…

  521. elizabeth said

    Moonbeam – How are you doing? Surviving the start up of school? I am trying to adjust to the new school year. Krysten started high school this year and I am still trying to wrap my mind around it..sigh

  522. laurel said

    Soooo, (blushing) this is only Thursday, huh?

    Meeting is tomorrow isn’t it? Guess I’ll have to wait.

    Did I mention that the girls have gone off to school?

    Hey, who sent the guys in the white coats over to my house?
    I’ve got stuff to do that requires me to use at least one hand. Painting younger daughter’s room comes to mind.

  523. Danae said

    No he didn’t called me. He looked me up on match.com again and sent me a wink which is the way of flirting on there.

  524. Madonna said

    You just inspired another name for the band that describes all of us in one form or another. Committed

  525. elizabeth said

    Madonna – I like that!! Committed – that is definately what we all are!

  526. lwildstar said

    Zipping by between other things!

    Ordered some postcards.

    Laurel – if you still want to meet at the HenHouse tonight – I’ll check in around 9 eastern….

    Talk at you later

  527. elizabeth said

    I can’t say that I am sorry that Flash Gordon hasn’t been renewed, but I will miss Dresden Files. Too bad they have let that one go. I love Eureka; that show just cracks me up. The sheriff can take me to jail anytime:)

  528. laurel said

    E – Moonbeam is unlikely to be on the blog for a long time. I can get messages to her or you can e-mail. She is not good with self dicipline (according to her) and is afraid to get on because she won’t leave once she does. I barely get to see her during the school year, but I will send her in periodically for a visit.
    She needs us! The occasional picture of Henry in her e-mails would make her happy.
    Just a thought.

    I understand how you feel about Krysten starting High School. Sarah just started her Senior year this morning, and I am in shock. Moonbeam’s Maxx, my nephew, is also a Senior this year, and that just doesn’t seem possible.
    Thank goodness my Rose is only in the 7th grade, ’cause I am not ready to have them both grown and gone just yet.

  529. laurel said

    lwildstar – I will check the chatroom tonight, just in case someone shows up. See ya’ later.

  530. Danae said

    My niece started high school last week. Lord I was in high school when she was born. She hates it already. She was so stoked to be started high school and then she starts and none of her friends are in her classes. She hates it.

  531. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Madonna, E, Moonbeam, Laurel (sorry about the keyboard) how are my Blood sista’s doing sounds like school dayz have all but Madonna wrapped up.
    Wildstalker , thanx for the hugs, we appreciate all the warm and Fuzzy’s ๐Ÿ˜‰

    **Blood Lust**, ooohh how about **Chains of Chocolate**

  532. Madonna said

    Talk about feeling old, my niece Harley just started 3rd grade. I was in college when she was born.

  533. msgypsy said

    I think Wink Wink Nudge Nudge would be a good band name. I can’t sing, no longer own a guitar, and don’t do costumes for anyone but myself but I can do standup about vampires for the opening act.

    I LOVE Eureka. It’s so damn quirky. And while Sheriff Carter is a cutie pie (and finally dating someone not still living in her own past!) I have to confess a soft spot for Fargo.

    I really miss the Dresden Files, but the books manage to cheer me up, even though in the books Harry is SUCH a snot. (James Marsters reads the books on CD, and he has that voice down SO well!)

    My sister has just informed me that next May, she, my 87 year old mother, and I are going on a cruise up the Alaska coast next May, starting in the other Vancouver. (BC, I mean.) Gosh, if they start filming the next season of BT in April….

    Yeah, a girl can dream.

  534. DIZEY1 :-) said

    You know the saying when God closes a door he opens a window? Well Jan of 98 my sister passed. My brother Freddie and Kim(sis-in-law) had been trying to get pregnant for a while and we were un-aware. On Valentines day they came over and said they were pregnant and Madison Lynn showed up on Sept 30th and I think Kathy sent her. That little bugger will be 9 this Sept.30th. Man time flies when you’re not watching. She’s such a sweet girl too. She’s a Libra just like my mom. 3rd grade already ๐Ÿ˜€

  535. lwildstar said

    Diz – warm and fuzzies are good!

    laurel – I’ll check for you at the Hen House tonight

    Well now I am off to see what I can get done before this seminar thingy starts!

  536. elizabeth said

    Hey, Dizey girl, I know what you mean about time flying when you aren’t watching. It sounds like your sister definately had something to do with the blessing that is Madison.

    Gypsy – I so get what you are saying about Fargo. I never know if I want to knock him up side of the head or give him a hug for being such a goof. Sheriff Carter, on the other hand, just has to grin and I am done for *sigh*

  537. I wonโ€™t be able to make it to the chat room tonight but I will try for tomorrow.

    Iโ€™m so glad you all like my vision of Kieron. His hair is really a little darker than Heathโ€™s, dark ash blonde, and he has โ€œeyes so pale blue they look silverโ€ (Heathโ€™s are hazel I think) but the face and build is pretty much right on. When I found the shot of Heath in period costume for Casanova, it just screamed Kieron. Too bad that by the time my book gets made into a movie (dream on) Heath will be way to old to play him.

    Oh well, I can still pretend to be Kathy running up and down the moors calling Heath(cliffe), Heath(cliffe)! Ah! Wuthering Heights one of my all time favorite books.

    I think I will let the contest run until tomorrow at noon est. That will give everybody a chance to make a submission. All lot of the girls canโ€™t log on during the day and it wouldnโ€™t be fair to exclude them. Iโ€™ll take everything I have at that point and put together a post with all the choices and my decision. The winner will have to email me a picture and may request the scene that she would like to appear in, although I get final choice of the shot. (Iโ€™ll have to determine what works best with the picture you send.)

  538. laurel said

    Ms G – You have Dresden on CD? Do you own them or did you get them from the library? I would love to listen to them. I think I’m going to buy the DVDs or ask for them for Christmas this year. For now I’m going to rewatch Firefly while I wait for Blood Ties to return.

    Geez, according to that last bit my coffee has finally metabolized. I feel like I’m boucing off the walls.
    Sorry about that.

    A cruise to Alaska? Nice. Is there a special reason for the festivities?

    btw – Portland, Oregon is just across the Columbia River from Vancouver, Washington, USA. We have to be very specific here when we say Vancouver. It was Fort Vancouver in the early days, now the City of Vancouver – which just celebrated its 150th birthday this past weekend.

  539. elizabeth said

    Firefly – loved that show! I actually bought the DVD’s and the movie Serenity when they came out. Nathan Fallion (I don’t think I spelled that right) is just so darned cute! I might by The Dresden Files as well. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that until you mentioned it.

    Oooh, Gypsy, I have always wanted to cruise to Alaska. My mother did it a few years ago and raved about the whole experience.

    Annalaise – how about “Vampire Kisses” for a name? Or, Vamp Lore? I’m not terribly creative when it comes to t his type of thing, but don’t want to miss out on having my picture photoshopped into a good pose with our Henry. Darn, I’m drooling again – sorry about that *sheepish grin*

  540. elizabeth said

    Oops, I meant to say “I might buy The Dresden Files”. Darned fingers, won’t stay on the right keys. I think I need some of your coffee, Laurel…My brain is struggling to stay up with everything today.

  541. Madonna said

    When is your mom b’day? My dad’s is Oct. 14th.

    I’m doing pretty good. Thanks for asking. Right now I have tons of logistics going through my head. We’re trying to prepare for the festival and are SOOO not ready. We have supplies that need ordering and I’m the only one who can. We have tons of candles to make, I have a banner to design and get printed as well as trying figure out how we want to decorate our 10×10 booth. I have to try to do all of this while working 10-12 hr. days in the next month. Plus I need to redesign our unofficial logo and I’m drawing a blank. While I was shopping for glassware I came across this site and our logo is way too similar to this company’s. http://www.jarstore.com/ If anyone has any suggestions for me about it. I’m willing to listen. I think I’m just too close to this project to come up with any good ideas.

    Here at work my supervisor just had her baby yesterday, which means my boss will be passing on much of her duties to me, plus we are going to start another book at the end of this month.
    All that being said the blog will be kind of hard for me to keep up with, especially in the evenings. I’m gonna try, but can I get someone to promise me that if something important comes up you’ll send me an email? I don’t want to miss anything.

    Right now I’m trying to think of creative ways to fit in some sleep.

  542. Madonna said

    Oh yeah, if it helps to spark an idea in anyone….. The working name of my company is Totally Wick’d Gel Candle Creations

  543. Himmiefan said

    Hi guys. Just a brief stop in today. I like Nudge Nudge Wink Wink, whoever came up with that. I can definitely be a doo wop girl!

    Dizey – still praying for your brother!

    Someone mention Firefly? Firefly rocks!!

    Chat at cha later…

  544. I really like that Madonna. A lot of potential for logo design.

  545. laurel said

    Elizabeth – if you really need a coffee I can swing by and drop one off! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I suppose I had better get my tired little self off to work for a while. Those tickets won’t send themselves out.

    Madonna – I am not any help in logo dept. but I will send you lots of good thougts and prayers. Take a deep breath and don’t forget to take a break once in a while. Your candles sound fabulous and I bet they are going to be a big hit. Let us know you’re okay and we will keep you posted when we hear anything about Blood Ties renewals or anything.

  546. laurel said

    Hey! Was that Himmie? That girl is really quick with the drive bys.

    Hi Himmie! We miss you!

    See you all in a few hours, I’m off to engage in the real world. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  547. Madonna said

    OH NO. I think I killed the blog!

  548. Hmmm….Flash Gordon didn’t get renewed? Shocker…NOT! I liked the first ep, but then it quickly veered off. Even my Dad doesn’t like the show.
    DUDE! Eureka totally KICKS!!! I never miss an ep. I need shows I can actually laugh at. I hope Sci-Fi decides to keep that show or they’re really stupid. Never got into Firefly…not that they gave us much of a chance to get into it before it was yanked.

    DUDE!!! I’m all tapped out on band names. You guys are beating me to it. I like Dizey’s, especially Chains of Chocolate. *g*

    Eh. As I said, I can’t join the band anyways. Oh! I know. I could be the groupie chik and follow the band around everywhere. I’ll be the one in the audience watching you guys perform. I’ll be the one hanging out with Spike…hehehe…and then I’ll jump into Dr. DuChat’s fic and nab Keiron. Oooohhh yeah.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Outtie…real life calls…again….darn real life….

  549. prtfvr said

    Sorry, been trying to fix my boss’ laptop ALL DAMN DAY! Phew! Great success! Finally!

    Smutty Pictures: I didn’t send them out to everyone because they were pics I pulled for myself never meant to be published i.e. they’re not that good. But I’ll send them to anyone who wants them. Email me: prtfvr@verizon.net and I’ll send you a few.

    Now for MY band name. And I KNOW it’s predictable but…

    “Fangs for the Mammary’s” *ducks* Couldn’t resist! You know how much I enjoy naming people/things. ๐Ÿ™‚

    All people planning on attending the Annalaise Blood Ties Tour 2007 – 2008, please email me with the position (wink, wink) you’re interested in and a brief note about why you feel you should be included. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  550. lwildstar said

    Madonna – is this your first craft show? I’ve been “in the buis” for over 15 years so If you need any advice or what not email me…

    we’re on a break and I had to clear my heead so i snuck over here!

    ok they are calling us back…ug..its so hard not to fall asleep at these things…

    I love “Chains of Chocolate”

  551. Modonna โ€“ Whenever I hear Totally Wickโ€™d I think of Normanโ€™s long black fingernails if that gives you any inspiration.

  552. prtfvr said

    Damn cat ate my post! If it shows up threes time, forgive me!

  553. prtfvr said

    I vote for “Fangs for the Mammary’s”

  554. Cute, I get it!

  555. DebS said

    Just stopped work for a few minutes to check in with the blog.

    I am with Madonna and Elizabeth…can’t sing a lick, can’t play an instrument, and can’t dance (in case dancers are in the mix for this tour)…but I would totally be a roadie or security. Elizabeth can stand on one side of Kyle/Henry and I will take the other. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think I watch all the same shows you all do, except for the CSIs. I am really most excited about heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Bones, NCIS, Smallville, and Supernatural.

    As for new shows: Pushing Daisies, Journeyman, Chuck, Moonlight, Reaper, and Aliens in America.

  556. DebS said

    Oh and I LOVE Eureka! Have never missed an episode. It is so funny, intelligent, and has great conspiracy/mythology to it. Fargo is my favorite.

  557. msgypsy said

    Firefly fen, atten-HUT! I read in a couple of places, Wedon-esque being the main one, that MCA Universal might finance a second Serenity movie IF (and it’s a big if) the two-dvd set special edition of the movie DVD sells well. So if you don’t already have Serenity on DVD this is a good time to be buying it.

    Nathan Fillion is about the hottest thing on any screen lately. At least for me. I never could believe Kaylee didn’t try to get her little engineeringly grubby hands on him!

    I got the Dresden CDs from the library. So far as I know, they’ve only got the first 4 books recorded, at least that’s all my library has.

    The occasion for the cruise? It’s because the VA finally decided that my mother, recently the widow of a decorated and many times wounded WWII Naval veteran, deserved a widow’s pension. And they’re paying it in one lump to catch up since last October. It’s a nice chunk of change and my mother figures, at 87, she doesn’t have too many opportunities coming up to share it with her kids so she might as well go all out.

  558. Margaret said

    I’ve heard Alaska is absolutely beautiful. Hope you all have a blast.

  559. elizabeth said

    DebS – you got it, girl! You and I can be security. We need kick butt outfits and no one gets to mess with our boy while we are on guard.

    msgypsy – I do hope they do a sequal to Serenity. I loved that movie, but I wonder what the story arc would be since so much was resolved in the movie?

  560. DebS said

    Elizabeth-Kick butt outfits..I am so there. We definitely need something better than the traditional black tee with SECURITY written in white.

    I had not heard about a sequel to Serenity. Fantastic News! I love Firefly and loved Serenity. Saddest thing will be that Wash won’t be there. I am going to go out by the 2 disc speicial edition…is it out yet?

  561. Danae said

    No one would get a chance to mess with our MAN because you two would be hogging him.

  562. msgypsy said

    Yup, the 2 disc set of Serenity is out and I own it. Very cool. A whole lot of additional stuff on that second disc. I think there’s still plenty of fun to be had aboard Serenity, and I think Captain Mal and Inara need to squabble some more before he finally admits his feelings for her. (She already knows, I think.)

    Best line in the movie (speaking of Mal and Inara) was, “Were we fighting? No? It’s a trap.”

    Bringing this back to BT (not that we have to but what the heck…) that would sound just as convincing out of Mike after talking to Vicki. Dave says, “How do you know it’s a trap?” Mike says, “Was she mad at me? Was she defensive? It’s a trap.” (Not so funny coming out of Henry because he’d most likely say, “I could hear her heartbeat and it’s a trap.”)

  563. Madonna said

    I like what you said here Anne and I agree. I would not waste my time and money developing products for a show that I knew was already it the can. It renews my hope.

    Anne said,
    September 6, 2007 @ 3:56 am
    Kaleidoscope coming out with merchandise makes me even more optimistic about a second season.

  564. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Prtfvr, My partner in crime….I emailed you ๐Ÿ˜‰ Fangs for the Mammary’s you kill me Alice!

    Madonna , Mom’s B’day is Oct. 6th. Oh and give that boss a **French Frap**or a Gibbs Smack!!

  565. Madonna said

    I’m working directly with OUR man in the tour. (Gotta get his feedback and get the pyrotechnics going you know.)

    Will Kyle be making a special appearance on stage during the show?

    Oh and one more for consideration…..

    Going off of Laurel’s from earlier. How about just “The Sisterhood”

  566. prtfvr said

    DIZ: That’s pronounced “Bitch-Frap” as in To Bitch-Frap someone who’s annoying and need to learn a lesson! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love you too, my evil twin separated at birth – by a year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  567. Madonna said

    This is my first craft show. We did a flea market by my house about two years ago and that was pretty much a wash. Our product was a little too rich for the patrons blood there. I did get my puppy out of that experience though.

    I have far more hope for the Wool Fest. People come from Louisville and Lexington and other surrounding areas to do Christmas shopping and such.

  568. DIZEY1 :-) said


    Do I have to be the older evil twin?? My email was regarding the *jockeying* for position ๐Ÿ˜‰

  569. rifkind said

    Well, I can sing, so count me IN on the tour…
    and my name for the band is The Smitten Kittens ๐Ÿ™‚

  570. rifkind said

    OK, one more
    The FangGirl Sisterhood

  571. DIZEY1 :-) said


    Honey the Wool Fest I’d be scared I’d come home with a sheep this year. ๐Ÿ˜›

  572. Madonna said

    That’s cute! I’d probably be tempted if I see any, but our house just isn’t large enough.

  573. Kyleโ€™s going to be playing the drums and singing. Does Kyle sing well I wonder? Of course he does! He does everything well. So yes he will be on stage. How about some nice red gels in the stage lights to show him off well? And a little fog machine right around the drum kit to give that eerie feel.

    BTW: Have you guys noticed that I donโ€™t have a real strong grip on reality any more?
    But my imagination is superb!

  574. Madonna said

    I wonder if we should clue Kyle in on our plans for him…..

  575. Danae said

    My grip on reality when it comes to Kyle/Henry left a looooooooong time ago. My dream is to find a guy to love me that sings well.

  576. Danae said

    I have to head home now guys. Before I go I have mention that I haven’t been sleeping well but I had a nice peaceful sleep last night dreaming only of Kyle after that sweet message he left yesterday.


  577. elizabeth said

    Madonna – Nah! We don’t want him to get worried. DebS and I will deliver him to the stage and stand guard….*evil grin* And we definately need something more creative t han a black T with Security written on it. How about a black T with a full moon, bats and Security written on it?

    annalaise – if you don’t have a strong grip on reality at the moment, then I had better be very concerned about my tenuous grip ๐Ÿ˜‰ What are the lines from a song “I’m not crazy, I’m just a little insane?” Matchbox 20 must have been channeling me when they sang that one ๐Ÿ™‚

  578. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Dr.duChat I wanted the drumssssss, well we’ll just have to have two drum sets on stage and Kyle and I will play together (ooooh that sounds good to me). I can dream !

  579. Maddie Mo said

    I have no artistic talents at all, so I obviously can’t be in the band. I am do have a lot of experience with managing people and money. So, I think I would be better suited to work with the finances for our production. Budgeting and what not. or perhaps Marketing, done a lot of that in the past too.

  580. Madonna said

    Goodbye Danae,
    Hope you sleep well tonight too.

  581. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ciao Bella Daniella, Sleep well my lil’s sista’!! Catch ya tomorrow.

    Hey Girls my Saints are playing tonight, I’m counting on each and every one of you to scream, Whoop it up for my Home Boys!! Sorry my Peyton (Homegrown) but you can’t win tonight!! Whooooo Hooooooo!!!! Go Saints GO!!!!

  582. Madonna said

    I’ll cheer your Saints on tonight if you’ll cheer my Bengals on on Monday Night Football. Deal?

  583. Margaret said

    You know what, now that you bring Kyle into the mix, I no longer want to sing. I want to be his dresser. Of course it might take him a while to get out of the dressing room every night, if ever.

    Madonna-In answer to your question-of course he can’t. And I’m voluteering to be his personal assistant too. That way I got all the bases covered. lol.
    And if you’re going to ask me if he can’t dress himself the same question would go for bathing. Are we talking about Henry or Kyle. You know we’ve never seen a bathroom in Henry’s House. He never makes a reference to getting freshened up, just changing clothes. Don’t vamps bath?

    Dizey: You little minx. There are so many places I could go with that but I’m stopping here. I know you have an active imagination so you and I have already gone there. lol.

  591. laurel said

    Wait just a minute!

    Dizey! Step away from the tape measure and keep your hands where I can see them!
    You too Ms Maggie!

    Do either of you actually know anything about sewing? Alterations to men’s trousers?
    Better leave the “ease” to the experts. (We can’t have you lot sticking pins in the dear man). Besides, if you cause the boo-boo you don’t get to kiss it better.

    Get your minds out of the gutter.

    Mine is taking up the whole space all by itself.

  592. laurel said

    Do you gals remember my evil twin – Lauren?

    That was her.



  593. Margaret said

    Dizey: Would be fun ripping the pants off, wouldn’t it? Someone else could sew them back up. Although, I’ve been known to sew before.

  594. Madonna said

    Hens Gone Wild?

  595. Margaret said

    Forgive me, I got carried away. See what waiting for Lifetime does to me, makes me crazy, say things I wouldn’t ordinarily.

  596. Madonna said

    I wasn’t chastising you. That was a suggestion for the name of the band.

  597. Margaret said

    I didn’t think you were, it just that ever now and then I think of Kyle’s mom lurking and it kind of makes me so ashamed. Color me into a corner. Bad margaret, bad margaret. Would be nice to know which ones she does check so we wouldn’t have to watch it, wouldn’t it?

  598. What the heck did I miss??? I don’t have time to go back and read, but it seems I have totally walked in at the wrong time….


  599. Madonna said

    Lady A,
    In your absence Kyle has thanked everyone for signing his guestbook http://www.kyleschmidcentral.com . We are starting a band and are all vying for positions either in the band or our place in the production. Iโ€™m the set and stage designer and the pyrotechnics girl and and the makeup artist. Annalaise is taking suggestions for the name of the band and will Photoshop the winner in with a picture of Henry.

  600. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Maggie May, Lauren the Wicked I have no clue how to do much with men’s pants except the obvious ๐Ÿ˜‰ Welcome to gutter town ladies, it is by far the best place to be. Oh and Lauren I would sooooo kiss it and make it feel much better ๐Ÿ˜› Baddddd Beth, dirty girl she is. Oh Lauren the **Ease** you are speaking of would be………ease of getting in or getting out??

  601. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ok ya’ll this *Smut Sista’* is heading home. Game starts at 7 I think. I’ll chat with ya’ll a little later. Be good and **Wear something nice** ๐Ÿ˜›

  602. Madonna said

    For Dizey,
    GO SAINTS!!!!

  603. DebS said

    Just got home from work and dinner.

    Elizabeth-Love the Security outfit idea. Do we get cool shades as well? Tazers?

  604. rifkind said

    Lady A,
    What’s up with the screenplay??
    Any feedback from your producer?

  605. laurel said

    Beth – of course you know exactly what Lauren was talking about.
    Margaret – Lauren in sitting in the other corner, waving at you. Bad Lauren.

    Diz – GO SAINTS!
    Wear something nice.

  606. elizabeth said

    DebS – Absolutely. Cool shades are a must! Tazers – love the idea, we also need an ASP (Is that what it is called?) You know – like Vicki has. Oh, yeah – we will be cool ๐Ÿ˜‰

  607. DebS said

    Oh, how dare I forget the ASP. We will definitely be rockin’. Most people won’t even give me a kitchen knife for fear that I might hurt myself…I am very, very clumsy. So I am lovin’ the idea of a tazer and an asp. hehe.

  608. Madonna said

    Bye y’all.

    I’ll try to talk to you tomorrow.

  609. elizabeth said

    Good thing we don’t carry knives then, huh? LOL

  610. elizabeth said

    Bye Madonna. Have a good evening!

  611. laurel said

    Hey – totally off the subject here but –
    Four of the girls I took to the Anime Con this last weekend were in a skit/music video. I is on line if you want to watch it. Hysterical. They won the novice division of the co-play contest.

    Google Video
    Kumoricon 2007 Nerima Daikon.

    Warning! there is music and silliness. Based on a Japanese graphic novel series (makes absolutely no sense to me but makes me laugh).

  612. lwildstar said

    aaaa – look at what I missed!
    Too funny….
    I can sew! I voulenteer to be wardrobe “mistress” – ok ok assistant “mistress” ….
    Or security, I can be security, oooo pick me! pick me! – whos going to protect Kyle form the other security guards? – my previous boss tried to rent me out to ride “shotgun” on a cross cuountry road trip to Tuscon (Jewelry Trade Show) – it was cheeper to drive than ship the goods… anyway she told the driver that I wouldn’t have any problems beating, shooting, or gernerally casuing mayhem to any trouble makers along the way!…And NO I didn’t go on the trip – the driver was creepy! But my proported willingness to shoot someone became a big joke amoung all the vendors! Funnything is I have NEVER fired a gun of any sort!

    Ok I am off to find dinner – I’ll check the HenHouse around 8:30 eastern to see whos around for the writers chat….

  613. Margaret said

    Question on the ASP. If Henry has super sonic hearing wouldn’t the other demons have it also? So when Vicki rounds a corner and whips out her asp isn’t she just announcing the demon that they’re there? Won’t they be able to hear it?

  614. elizabeth said

    lwildstr – Watcha mean “protect Kyle from the other security guards”??? ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have only his best interest at heart – wouldn’t dream of doing anything that he wouldn’t want us to do…dedicated to his well being and comfort….absolutely will protect him body and soul…hmmm body…oh, wait – musn’t go there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  615. AlisaSG said

    from prtfvr,
    >> Grand Mistress G: Donโ€™t be depressed yet. Look how fast Flash Gordon was dropped. At least they havenโ€™t killed BT yet. Maybe it will live on in Canada.

    Unfortunately, some of the viewers from Canada and elsewhere around the world have been making snide remarks about Flash Gordon going “good riddens!” Gateworld forum topic for Flash Gordon has more negative comments on there than hope. Most of those who actually posted want it ditched – “pronto, the faster the better”.. and that’s a darn near, direct quote.

    and some of the anti-FlashG comments are coming from actual viewers, not the usual (professional) Tv critics, which is unusual, unless these are people who work within the networks as “underlings”. Usually, it’s the harsh BSG crowds making the remarks, but these are people who usually favor SG along with BSG. They were also pro-BLADE and pro-DW viewers, too (so far, anyway).


    There’s also rumblings of some viewers (have no clue who they are) to start up recommendations for someone “out there” to start up a new
    Sci-FI channel, since the current sci-fi network has drastically departed from what they feel defines sci-fi, and have more wrestling and horror nightmares on there than what was always believed to be pure Sci-Fi.

    That’s the latest news.. just caught a glimpse of it within the past few days. It just makes me mad when I see it, which is why I haven’t mentioned any of it earlier.

    I still think there is a certain group of very influential folks out there controlling these networks and manipulating them with their own spiel. I do have good news — next post coming up.

  616. AlisaSG said

    BLOOD TIES — *good* news for a refreshing change!!!

    Amazon.co.uk has a pre-order web page currently set up for UK region 2 DVDs – as of now. DVDs are expected to be rolling out as of January 28, 2008.

    Region 1 is not out yet. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Pre-order web page Link to Amazon is here- (link will run off page)

    funny thing.. they currently have BT paired up with Johnny Depp’s ๐Ÿ˜›
    Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End DVD ~ as the “Perfect Partner” with Blood Ties (series/season 1) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  617. AlisaSG said

    okay, I just posted one of those limbo postings with a link into AMAZON for UK (Region 2) pre-orders of Blood Ties DVD – if someone would be kind enough to pull it out..
    thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€

    oh, and speaking of the UK..
    I have no idea where those folks are posting (bloodlines?), because the LIVING Tv network channel has a forum, but NO BLOOD TIES topic started YET…!!!!!!!!

  618. lwildstar said

    E – I think you answered your own question!
    hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜‰

  619. Margaret said

    But will they play over here?

  620. Tango said

    Just a drive by and I will have to catch up later.

    E – what is that hand gesture you are giving? You can’t be too careful these days, it wasn’t too long ago I found out that “the shocker” was Kyle’s way to be a little naughty or at least a tease ๐Ÿ˜‰

    OK ladies prepare yourselves to ROTFLYAO… I first HEARD the following youtube video on the radio before I saw it and was laughing so hard on the way to work that my eyes were watering and may have even sorted from laughing so hard. So to increase the laughability factor, click on the link, but listen don’t watch the first time. Then go back and watch it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The clip is only like 1:25 and the hilarity doesn’t ensue until about 53rd second. Now don’t think it’s over when the two people start talking at the end, their comments are priceless. You will probably think I’m a bad person for thinking this is funny, but I’d be a liar if I told you otherwise.

  621. Tango said

    and that would be snorted not sorted

  622. Tango said

    Alissa – are you saying it’s not available to us? What region are we? And why aren’t we American’s first? We are first in just about everything else. JK my non-American friends! You know we American’s have a reputation for being self-absorbed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  623. Tango said

    Laurel โ€“ I wish I could help you out there with DH. But my feeble mind doesnโ€™t remember back that far โ€“ just remember it was really good. Buy hey, listen, you made the right choice if you had to chose. No regrets indeed!

    As far as Lost is concerned, my hubby tried to get me hooked the first season and I just wasnโ€™t havinโ€™ it. By season two, well that was another storey. I am addicted to it now. Itโ€™s hard to figure out whatโ€™s going to happen next, and I like exercising the brain on that one.

    Moonbeam โ€“ Yeah, Smallville has gotten so much better in the last season with some of the other superheroes joining in. The Green Arrow is also easy on the eyes. Mmmm baby!

    Arrowyn โ€“ Youโ€™re one cool lady! Great job! Way to get the pot stirred. You remind me a lot of Maggie May! You know you may want to copy and paste that or something similar with the exception of the link to Gypsyโ€™s (due to spoilers) on http://www.citytv.com/bloodties/qa.asp to give our Canadian friends your perspective. It was well written and might get our Maple-leaf hens riled up in the coop up there!

    Anne โ€“ thanks for the mdse news. J That is the most optimistic news Iโ€™ve heard in a long time, so Yea us! Now, Iโ€™m confused how you got to be such a big BT fan when it doesnโ€™t air in Denmark. How did ya manage that?

    My Dizey dear โ€“ much love and prayers are sent out to Rob and to your family. Howโ€™s your dad been doing lately?

    Iโ€™m cutting this off here until I can catch up with the rest of the dayโ€™s blogging, so this doesnโ€™t get toooooo long.

  624. Cree said

    Good Evening my blood sistas! Sorry I haven’t been around much lately….been sick with the flu….YUCK! I almost didn’t go into work today, but I am so glad that I did. The big wigs from my corporate office came in today for a surprise visit and told me what a great job I have been doing being the only doctor in my hospital for the past year. They said out of all of the doctors in Florida, I am the 10th highest in terms of number of pets seen and net production brought in! I couldn’t believe it. And as if that wasn’t good enough news, they offered me the position of Chief of Staff! Little ole me, being Chief of Staff! I was totally blown away and I think I am still in shock. I have only been practicing for 2 1/2 years, but they say I have done such remarkable things with my clinic that they really feel I am by far the best person for the job. Yea!!

    Okay, when did you all start a band? I want in. I’ve always been very blessed in the music department and I can play any instrument you give me except for guitar. I have never been able to get the hang of that for some reason. I think its my fingernails. They are always too long to press the strings hard enough to make the right chords. Anything else you need played, and I’m your girl.
    As far as band names, how about “The Smitten Bitten” or “Fitzroy’s Toys”? I’d personally volunteer to be Fitzroy’s toy any day of the week….. ๐Ÿ™‚

  625. msgypsy said

    Well, my blog sisters, I worked a whole hour and a half overtime tonight. Had to make up for time lost when I was out with that migraine. So when I get home there will be no blogging for me. I think I need a drink and a book. I’m TIRED!

    I’ll be back in the morning. And, yes, I agree, Kaleidescope (which I undoubtedly misspelled) is acting like BT will be renewed, at least in Canada. And I’ve said before, once I find a show in Canada that I want to see I feel no guilt about bootlegging it since there’s no other way for me to see it. I’d way rather see it on the big TV, though. (Like Torchwood. I’ve seen Season One. Twice. Three times if you count on my Zen. Four maybe. I still plan to watch it on BBC America on the big screen. Well, larger screen. Larger than my monitor screen.)

    I’m obviously really tired and clearly I need more beer. Or any beer. Type at you all later, darlings!

  626. msgypsy said

    Cree, dayum, I saw your news just as I was logging off. Wow, Chief of Staff? That’s quite something. I think that calls for a toast. As soon as I get home. Beer…..must find beer…. (I’m turning into Homer Simpson.)

  627. Tango said

    Annalaise and prtfvr โ€“ this is what I bring to the tableโ€ฆ

    Tango’s creditials:

    Although Iโ€™ve already got dibs as Annalaiseโ€™s Producer/Assistant/Travel Coordinator โ€“ it is obvious that organization is my forte. I can also finagle deals and sweet-talk people out of things (meaning more perks for us). We call that the art of negotiation my biz.

    I also sing everything from second soprano to second alto, so back-up is a good place for me to be to harmonize. I am actually forming a work band for our next national convention, along with planning skits, wardrobe, etc for it.

    I have a boat that we could use, but would prefer flying. I am heavily armed and combat ready if we need protecting. A Marine pistol coach trained me, so I can get a moving target within 10-yard radius if necessary. However, I am not willing to risk crossing the border with Black Jack. You already have heard about my excellent and unique driving skills, so I wonโ€™t bore you with details again.

    Let me know if you need more. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  628. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Cree, Whoooo hoooooo You so Rock!!!! My Mighty dog wrangler ๐Ÿ˜‰ You deserve it , and it’s so good to get that proverbial pat on the back. Yay for you !!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Tango, My Southern Sista’ I went over to amazon.co.uk and put in my pre-ordered. It’s not available until Jan 08 anyway so we’ll see what happens. I’m stoked ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanx for the good thoughts, must be working cuz’ I feel pretty light ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Check back in a bit gotta see what my Saints are doing.

  629. Tango said

    Annalaise โ€“ Reality? We donโ€™t need no stinkinโ€™ Reality! Imagination is the key to happiness. I just love how we all play off of each otherโ€™s imagination. Weโ€™re a creative bunch.

  630. Annalaise duChat said

    Hi Ladies,

    I just stopped over at City TV and somebody over there wants to know what is the highest score anybody ever got on the BTaholics quiz. Does anybody remember that long ago? I know only scored about a 10 with 11-15 being severe obsession. Although if I took it now I might score differently. Anyway if anyone remembers let me know so I can pass it along.

    Congratulations Cree! You are awesome!

    Tango — Let me step down. I think you should be in charge girl! What can’t you do!

  631. DebS said

    Gypsy-I love Torchwood. I watched the entire first season via the internet. Sadly, I don’t get BBC America. I am actually watching John Barrowman sing right now…beautiful voice. He has a lot of talent..and easy on the eyes too.

  632. Tango said

    Woo hooo Cree! Way to go Chief! I always wanted to call someone Chief, and now I have someone! You must be on cloud 9! I hope that you get over your crud, but the good news must have helped some.

    ROTFLMAO!!!!! Oh Lauren! Iโ€™ve missed you honey! I was beginning to wonder if Laurel locked you away in one of those masks from โ€œMan In the Iron Maskโ€ that Leo was locked up in. Glad to see you back and fired up!

    Diz โ€“ and a ROTFLMAO TO YOU TOO!!!!! Welcome to gutter town! Iโ€™m guessing you have a vacation home there?

    Oh when the Saints…. oh when the Saints…. oh when the Saints go marchin’ in. Oh how I’d love to play in that number…. when the Saints go marchin’ in! Go Saints! Or something like that anyway. Not really sure how it goes, but that’s the way I’ve always sang it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, BTWโ€ฆ I just about peeโ€™d in my pants this morning on the way to work when I saw a houseboat on a trailor sitting on the side of the road, it was no where near water. I thought about all my lovelies this morning and wanted to stop to see if any of you were inside.

    Since Margaret was posing some epi questions, Iโ€™ve got another one. Why doesnโ€™t Vicki get startled, even just a little when Henry shows up all of a sudden? I know I would be letting out a scream and jumping every time.

  633. DebS said

    Cree! Congrats! I have never known a Chief of Staff before…very cool.

    Well chicas…I am off to bed. I have an early work day tomorrow (but then comes the weekend!). Have a great night!

  634. Madonna said

    YOU GO GIRL!!!!! Glad to hear the great news. I’m proud of you and you be proud of yourself. You deserve it. Here’s a toast to you! (Raising the strawberry daiquiri gel candle I just finished making.)

    OK, I’m going to bed now.

    Goodnight everyone!

    Once again….. GO SAINTS!!!

  635. Tango said

    Diz – I just ordered it too! *does happy dance* I don’t know how much I just paid for it, but I know the US dollar isn’t strong over there, so more than $35 – I guess.

    Speaking of dancing, Where’s Z? Come out! Come out – where ever you are! Miss you my sweet parole officer!

    Annalaise – I’d rather stay out of the spotlight – I can get away with more that way ๐Ÿ™‚ By all means, you stay up front and let me be the wind beneath your wings. OK that was sappy!

  636. Tango said

    Well, I’m stepping away from the keyboard for awhile to do my reports. I’ll check in before I retire. Good night to those who are doing so now!

  637. laurel said

    Nobody home? Tango, did you leave while my computer was being cruddy?

    I’m here! I am on another page writing my mystery/romance.

  648. laurel said

    Tango, I left Jake in mortal peril just to be here. Where did everyone go? Somebody must still be up. It’s only 8:30 for goodness sake. ๐Ÿ™‚

  649. Tango said

    8:30 for you is 10:30 for me my dear. But I am here. Just ate a pomegranite (sp?) hadn’t had one in years. I remember why now. A lot of work. Now I know why the juice is so expensive.

  650. laurel said

    This is not a very fast way to communicate tonight. My computer, or the server perhaps is having issues. I have been thrown out several times in the past half hour.
    I love pomegranites! Too much work though.

  651. laurel said

    I love all the silly band names everyone came up with today. It shows our joyful spirits to good advantage. Of course that is what keeps us together too.

  652. Tango said

    Well Laurel I’m going to have to leave it to you and Lauren. I’ve got a 5:00 wake up call and I must get my beauty sleep. Being beautiful is such a chore! lol!

    Good night all!

  653. laurel said

    Good night Tango, thanks for staying up.

    I’m off too. I have to rescue poor Jake from his homicidal wife.


  654. Anzia said

    Okay, I LOVE: Bitten & Committed
    My proposals:
    Can’t Fight in Daylight
    Days of Wrath
    Vampires Suck!
    Slurpie Sisters
    Blood Bond
    Blood Sisters

    Okay, I think I’m done. I actually had some funny ones that SOO didn’t apply to us and some major puns…Did I mention I’m a dork?

    Madonna-OMG my day off was GREAT! I don’t think words could describe it. I went shopping and ate at my fav restraunt (Noodles & Co.- *singsongy* LOOOVE the mac & cheese w/flatbread! *rubs tummy* YUMM!). Then I came home and watched bollywood movies all day! Seriously, ya’ll may think i’m nuts for my love of those movies but…*sigh* It really made my week! I’m freaking out ’cause I work 5 days straight next week and I’m not sure how I’ll be able to handle it since i have to babysit the cousins on my only 2 days off (sat & sun). I might be certifiable by the next monday!

    I got called an angel today! I called a guy and he started off by yelling at me. My usual approach is to just let them go and eventually they’ll stop. Well, he went and went and went. When he stopped I was able to fix everythign for him. He appologizes about three times and called me an Angel. I chuckled and said that he made my day. He told me that the name was perfect for me because I’d endured his ranting then helped him w/o so much as one mean word. I was blushing! He was so sweet. ๐Ÿ™‚ He really did make my day!

    Okay, going ot bed now. I’ll see ya’ll in the AM

    Multi region playes do not abound in the US, but with luck, you will be able to play region 2 DVDs on your computer. I use a clever little program called AnyDVD that lets me play … well, any region .. on my computer.
    My regular DVD player plays any region and my TV has no problem showing NTSC.

    I was a big BT fan since the books were first published; I found Tanya’s livejournal and read the news about the upcoming series there, and once it aired in the US, I somehow managed to watch the episodes ๐Ÿ˜‰

    sorry ladies, I should have listed amazon.co.UK twice. That is the UK version of AMAZON.com (which is the American version web site)

    >> Alissa – are you saying itโ€™s not available to us? What region are we?

    the site is for UK, region 2, but also listed region 1.

    REGION 2 will be having their DVDs in PAL format (whatever that is).

    you might want to hold off on that DVD PRE-ORDER, unless you have a multi-region DVD player (and compatible Tv set format), or specifically requested REGION 1.

    this is what Amazon.co.uk said about their
    REGION 2 (UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa and Middle East)
    vs. REGION 1 (US/Canada)

    >> Region 2 DVDs may not work on DVD players in other countries.

    >> Region 1 DVDs sold by our Marketplace sellers

    >> Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible “multi-region” DVD players (also known as “chipped” or “region-free” players).

    >> They also require an NTSC-compatible television. NTSC is the standard picture format in North America, and differs from the PAL format adopted in Britain and Europe. Region 1 DVDs are usually presented in NTSC format, so you should ensure that your TV is capable of reading the NTSC signal before purchasing Region 1 DVDs.

    >> Region 0 (or “region free”) is compatible with DVD players from any region.

    >> The majority of all current titles play only in one specific region unless otherwise noted.
    >> DVDs sold by Amazon.co.uk are encoded for Region 2 or Region 0.
    >> Region 2 DVDs may not work on DVD players in other countries.

    Congratulations Cree. Look at you! Great. I’m like the rest of the gals, I’ve never know a Chief of Staff, you’re my first one. Well done!

    I’d say all of us with an Amazon.com account in the US keep writing to them here. Tell them we want Blood Ties. I got the message that it wasn’t available at this time.

  659. prtfvr said

    CREE!!! OMG!! Congratulations! That’s awesome!! You’re on the fast track now, girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I like Fitzroy’s Toys, btw.

    To the idea of putting Kyle behind drums? NO WAY!! I love his face, as you know but I do adore those woodgie bowed legs of his! Don’t hide his light behind a bushel ladies! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow Anne and Alissa! You guys are so knowledgeable about all that techy stuff. And little ‘ol me just thought that all TV’s and DVD players etc were universal. Well who knew? OK, apparently you two. But let me say from a layperson’s perspective, that’s just asinine! I just donโ€™t understand why we all couldnโ€™t share the same format for electronic stuff, it seems like it would be a whole lot simpler. Not to mention promote world peace ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I ever decide to become a Beauty Queen and get in Ms. Universe โ€“ I now have my platform. Universal technology will bring forth world peace! It would be a lot better than Miss Teen South Carolinaโ€™s response to why 1/5th of Americanโ€™s can find the US on a world map. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WALIARHHLII

    Makes you a little scared that these are our future American leaders, doesnโ€™t it? Well maybe not you Anne. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If I can’t get the DVD to work, I may just have a fancy coaster.

    Z – good to see you back! Glad you had a great day off! And yes, you are a little Angel! Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Hey, I may just not pay my Khol’s bill for a couple months so you can call me! My luck, someone else would call me and give me the number to a porn service to call back. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Has that guy gotten over all the razzing that ensued after that? If I did talk to them, can you imagine what their reponse would be when I told them I only did it so I could talk to my Angel Anzia?

    Gotta run! Hope everyone has a great day!

  661. Tango said

    And that would be the Ms. Universe padgent. Eww- get your mind out of the gutters! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Oh well – I was tired and cranky anyway. Are we going to try again tonight? I’ll be around bout 9pm eastern.

    I’ll try to check back here later.

  663. Madonna said

    Good morning everyone!
    Hope everyone has a great Friday.

    All three of these were great, but they’re not mine. They’re Danae’s

    The Vampire’s Lair
    Henry’s Victims
    Kyles Doxies

    Correction to the Henry’s Harem-Should be Henry’s Harem and the Wantabees, and Once Bitten & Coming Back for More isn’t mine.

    Morning all!!!

    Cree— Congratulations. That is so awesome.

  666. Claire said

    Bonne Matin mes Amis!! Missed all the band naming…due to #$@% router problems again!!!

  667. Rifkind said

    **ALERT *** **** ALERT**** **** ALERT *****
    I think that this post should have been the dreaded 666 instead of 667

    OK Gals,
    Watch out buying Region 2 DVDs, they will not play in your normal US players..


    Amazon even has this warning on their website for a DVD for Region 2:

    Region 2 encoding (This DVD will NOT play on most DVD players sold in the US or Canada [Region 1]. This item requires a region specific or multi-region DVD player and compatible TV.

    So you gals may want to cancel your orders unless you have some very special video equipment, but most normal machines will not play the DVD here in the US..
    So be careful in your ordering of DVDs ladies!

    Anne is a lucky duck, as Europe is region 2!

  668. Rifkind said

    That is what I get for posting before reading the posts since last night when I signed off… AlisaSG has already told you about the little region problem…. oh well, just shows that we are watchiing out for each other!

  669. Danae said

    Buongiorno bellas.

    Cree congratulations. That is so awesome.

    My favorite band names are Bitten-Madonna, Bloody Hell and The Turned-Dizey, Vamp Kisses-Elizabeth, Hens Gone Wild-DebS, Fitsroy’s Toys-Cree, Blood Sisters-Anzia, and Can’t Fight The Moonlight-Me

    Funny thing from home last night. I was at mom’s talking about pepper and it came out peckers. I guess I am still vacationing in the gutter.

  670. Danae said

    Lady A-When you come back on, when did you send Kyle’s gift out to him? Just curious to know around the time he should be getting it. I know it took a few weeks for Tanya’s bookmark to get to her because someone got it and had to forward to her. I am guessing the same thing will happen with Kyle’s gift.

  671. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Buongiorno, Bonjour, Good Morning!!! Comment alllez vous ? Happy Friday to all My Blood Sista’s.

    Well Peyton my homegrown(Very Proud) boy is Clearly a superbowl champ. We were rode hard and put up wet!! They kicked my poor Saints assess ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh well fiddle-dee-dee tomorrow’s another day, and next week another game, we shall overcome ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Rif , Alisa, thanx for the DVD Region update, how do you know if a player is multi-regional or not? I so hate to have to cancel my order, I’m soooo OCD and all. Maybe I’ll make a piece of art with them if they don’t work. I’ll make a collage of BT parafanalia ๐Ÿ˜›

    Daniella, I loved all the suggestions for the band name so any one of them will be COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž with me.

    Prtfvr, Don’t hide his light behind a bushel , or a bass drum as the case may be. Eric and the band he’s with now went a took some pic’s the other day for their CD. OMG my little bro. may actually do something with this someday.

  672. prtfvr said

    I just keep thinking of silly band names.

    Mos Death

    Henry’s Kiss (I think it’s either Kim Harrison or Laurel K. Hamilton who calls a group of vampires a “Kiss”.)

    Fitzi’s Fan Girls

    Bat Girlz

    Willing Victimz

    Once Bitten, Twice High

    The Duke’s Duchess

    Henry’s Heart

    Fitz’s Floozies

    Driven by Lust (It’s Henry or Bust)

    Henry’s Handmaidens or Headmistresses

    Man, I just can’t win this one. Still, it’s good to be the manager! Did anyone volunteer to be a roadie? I mean, someone’s got breakdown and rebuild Kyle. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  673. Cree said

    Good Morning Everyone. Thanks for all the congrats on my promotion. I am so excited about it. And also scared…..its a lot of added pressure. Its not official yet though. I still have to submit 3 cases of my choosing to the medical standards review board just so they can make sure I really do know what I am doing. I have to submit 2 medical cases and 1 surgical. It shouldn’t be a problem though. I have plenty of good ones to choose from. I think I’ll choose some extra hard cases I have worked up over the past year just to make it more interesting. I love the difficult cases. Keeps me on my toes!

    Claire: Cats require a higher fat intake to keep up with their high metabolism. Therefore, cat food is going to be high in fat. All of that fat doesn’t get digested and some comes out in the poop. Thats why dogs like to eat cat poop. We all know fatty foods taste better! Yum! ๐Ÿ™‚ (I apologize to anyone who may be eating breakfast right now).

  674. prtfvr said

    Cree: Trust me, no one’s eating breakfast now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  675. Madonna said

    Ummm….. Dizey, I’m not sure if I’m the one in the gutter today with Danae or if it’s you, but this sounds really, REALLY dirty to me….

    Dizey said, “Well Peyton my homegrown(Very Proud) boy is Clearly a superbowl champ. We were rode hard and put up wet!! They kicked my poor Saints assess”

  676. prtfvr said

    Madonna, Madonna: I’m right there with you, babe. And then my animal brain reared its ugly head and I thought “those horses are gonna die!”

    I’m crazy, crazy, crazy! I just looked at the clock! It’s almost 11am and I haven’t done ONE THING related to work. Okay, maybe one or two but sheesh!

    And I had the weirdest dream about finding a snow covered puppy crawling the wrong way off an interstate ramp and out into traffic. I mean, I saved him but SHEESH! What the hell did I eat last night?!

    And the whole dream was like a mini-series. My husband and I snuck out for a drink, in the snow, late at night. We went to several restaurants AND a psychic where several mishaps ensued and the psychic said we weren’t done yet! She was right. The puppy ruined some rugs, was adopted by some nice people who actually gave us money for him, THEN the puppy caught up with us at another restaurant, pee’d all over their carpet which the owner’s proceeded to tear up with a backhoe because “that will NEVER come out! The whole rug needs to be replaced!” At which point they called the cops to force us to pay for the rug and the cop just laughed at them and told them no way and I wound up looking for my favorite cousin who didn’t live where she used to so I wound up in someone else’s house where the puppy dug up their rug and we backed out as quickly as possible…

    No wonder I over slept today! Damn, I’m tired! Why can’t I have dreams that are restful and/or dirty? Sheesh! Even in my dreams people are harassing me!

  677. laurel said

    You know Cree, I was eating breakfast and was a little yucked out. But after a couple of seconds to consider that I had already cleaned the litter box and picked up cat barf from the carpet on the stairs.. Well I just got up and washed my hands with anti-bacterial soap one more time. Breakfast is on again. lol

    prtfvr – Wow, I’m the one who took the meds last night and I should have had that sort of dream, but slept just fine. Sorry you got the weird dreams and woke up tired. If I were there I would make you a cup of tea or coffee or something stronger and some fresh scones. Or if you were here we could sit on the back porch and have our coffee and watch the hummingbirds harrass the finches.

  678. Danae said

    Madonna-I didn’t notice that. Wow! What a way for Diz to mess up on the typos. That is so funny. Maybe Dizey is unknowingly still in the gutter. I was working on price changes and all the peckers were going up in price. Those are some awfully expensive peckers.

  679. laurel said

    Congratulations Doc Cree! That is most excellent news and I am really happy for you. It is always nice to have your work recognized as important. You will do a fine job of being the Chief!

  680. Maddie Mo said

    Dizey, If Peyton is looking for anything else to ride, send him my way. He’s a little hot.

    For a short 4 day work week, this has been the longest damn week in history. Could time move any slower. I think it’s cause it all gloomy and rainy out. Makes me very depressed after a couple days and it’s been that way all month so far.

  681. laurel said

    Wait a minute, I don’t remember anyone actually pulling Diz out of the gutter. We may have just left her there because we knew she would fall in again. . . Actually that should probably read “because we knew she would JUMP in again.”

  682. DIZEY1 :-) said


    That’s a good ole’ southern term ๐Ÿ˜‰ although it does sound like it may be a fun time ๐Ÿ˜› especially if I’m hanging w/Henri, he’s special and has special talents. (smutty enough? that’s me) (hee hee hee)


    I like that they’re called a Kiss, but then I do love all things mouth/tongue or kissing related ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes I’m bad and I’m drawn that way, what can I say I’m a happy smut girl. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  683. Madonna said

    Leave it to me to be the one to catch it. Hey, I’m not always as sweet and innocent as i seem.

  684. laurel said

    Maddie Mo – It has been like that out here in Portland, too. Lots of overcast days and cool weather plus I think this week has been extra long too. I actually forgot it had been a short one. I can only hope the weekend goes by slowly as well.

  685. Danae said

    Sorry to rub it in but is has been gorgeous here for nearly 2 weeks. We may get some rain Sunday night.

  686. DIZEY1 :-) said


    What typo? Did I spell rode wrong?? Oh and the sports page today headlines were ****Horse Whipped** saddddddd ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Thanx (taking a bow) for all the Gutter Accolades, happy I can entertain. I think it was the left over birthday weed, and the copulation and then Danae’s peckers…… all that is keeping me down here in nasty town. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  687. Maddie Mo said

    The weekends never go by slowly. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I hope the sun comes out soon. Isn’t it rainy a lot in Portland??? Or I guess I should say in the Northwestern part of the country.

  688. Margaret said

    Dizey: Don’t you need to esplain to the girls that “Rode Hard and Put Up Wet” isn’t necessarily something nice. We had a secretary that we used to describe that way and believe you me Henry would never come into that visual.

  689. Danae said

    I just assumed what you said about your Saints and Peyton Manning was a mistake and you meant to say something else. I have never heard anything about football put in that way before but I know nothing about football and don’t like football. I am just going to shut up now. I need to stop assuming things.

  690. Maddie Mo said

    early last week it was 100 degrees outside. It has been hot and dry for all of August, but the weekend came and so did the rain. I don’t mind the occasional rainy day to stay home and cuddle up and watch movies all day but when it drags on for days.

  691. Madonna said

    Hey Danae,
    Football isn’t so bad. There is one thing you would appreciate. Tight ends…. I’ll say no more.

  692. Cree said

    Laurel: Sorry about your breakfast. In the future I will try to reserve the yummy cat poop stories until after everyone has already eaten for the day! LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

  693. Danae said

    Well ok do appreciate the tight ends but other then that I will stick to my Nascar and basketball and sometimes RedSox.
