This week’s topic is dedicated to Scribble



  1. Margaret said

    Prtfvr: I love it. You’re such an artist.

  2. prtfvr said

    Mags thanks but that’s not my work! LOL!

  3. msgypsy said

    That one’s all mine. LOL!

  4. msgypsy said

    Okay, I’m about to lose my temper. MSNBC (The only morning news show I can tolerate at 5 AM) is being moved to a digital channel, effectively removing it from the news stations lineup. They’re leaving all the other cable news channels where they were but from now on I’ll only be able to watch the news show I want in the living room. Which means I can’t slowly wake up to the news.

    They cancel my radio show and then move my news channel. I’m not having a good day. I’m off to watch “Chuck” and I really hope he survives the encounter…

    How cute!!

    Ms Gypsy – much sympathies over your TV new issues. That’s pretty crappy.

    Freyja – did I understand you that your office is closing this week????

  6. Anzia said

    Sorry gyspy girl. 😦 You too freyja! Hugs to the both of you (as long as you don’t hurt me for doing so!) ^_^

  7. prtfvr said

    Z: I think everyone here is much more receptive to being hugged than I am so go for it! πŸ™‚

  8. msgypsy said

    I think I might be willing to pay cash money to someone to do a hug hit on Prtfvr.

    (I don’t usually like hugging, either, but the Portland blog-gals are just too wonderful not to hug. I think it likely we’re ALL that wonderful.)

  9. Arrowyn said

    Gypsy, I absolutely, positively L.O.V.E. your opening cat macro!!! That’s one of my favorite pictures. And I’m glad I read the previous thread first.

  10. Margaret said

    My apoligies-Ms. Gypsy. I love it. Can you imagine how long Scribbles will be able to ride off that one little word uttered by him. What a lucky gal and aren’t we all jealous. lol..

  11. lwildstar said

    Wow love the new picture – what a way to start the day!

  12. lwildstar said

    If you haven’t seen the previews for Friday – they are on LT – OMG!!!!!
    “Trust can be very stimulating”

  13. Margaret said

    lwildstar: I’m still jealous of scribble. Guess the rest of us will have to live vicariously through her. lol. You lucky girl, scribble.

  14. Good morning all.

    I trust that everyone is in a better mood today. I’m missing the comraderie and good will that I usually suffuses this blog, the warm fuzzy glow that comes from pulling together for a common cause. Let’s not loose sight of the goal.

    ms.gypsy — That is a great Macro. you’ve outdone yourself. Sorry about your radio show.

    Scribble — Would you care to elaborate on the circumstances? Inquiring minds want to know.

    prtfvr — Girl you want a hug and you know it! Just give in to the urge! Dr. duChat says physical contact is good for the soul.

    I’ve got a new contest for you all to keep you busy. Let’s dress Vicki, Mike and Henry for the Halloween Party Here’s the one and only rule: The three costumes have to be tied together in some way by some kind of theme. You must describe exactly how the costumes look. They can be as outlandish and farfetched as you want. The more creative and clever, the better I’ll like it. All entries must be in by Thursday at 4:30 est. I will announce the winner Friday at noon.

    You guys know what the prize is. Get to it!

  15. msgypsy said

    Margaret, no apologies necessary. Prtfvr will be all squirmy when I say this but it’s quite the compliment to have one of my macros mistaken for her’s.

    Prtfvr, NO not that kind of squirmy!

    I’ll enter ‘Laise’s contest. I see them as the Torchwood Strut. Mike has to be Captain Jack Harkness, because he’s the tallest. And because it would totally piss off Henry. Henry and Vicki don’t have to be anyone in particular. (Henry has the looks to be Ianto but too much self-assuredness, and the genius to be Owen but too many social graces. Vicki is too tough to be Gwen and too sexually driven to be Toshiko. So they’d have to just be adjunct members and can make up their own. Oh, wait, Henry can be The Doctor and Vicki can be Rose!) I’ll get it fleshed out during the day today and post the details this evening.

    (I’ve been looking for the past five minues and can’t believe that in 13 pages of Google images, there’s not a single one of the Torchwood Strut. There’s lots of formal cast photos, but not a one of the infamous strut.)

  16. Claire said

    Ummm…Ms.Honey..AKA Scribble? How are you still standing to talk about that experience? Lordy…I’d still be on the floor in a swoon!
    Ms.G!! Great way to start a new topic! It put a smile on my face!!!

    I hope all my sistas have a better day today! I have my grandchildren here(Babysitting Duty) so I’ll try to pop in later!


  17. Gypsy — I’m dying to see what you come up with! Any other early entrys?

    Submit pictures/links if you can, that’s a great idea!

  18. cdnfreyja said

    Good morning ladies,

    gypsy – LOVE the macro! Inspiration did strike! And sorry to hear about your programs.

    himmiefan – yes, you read that right. Unfortunately the boss doesn’t have the you know what to tell the staff (which is actually illegal up here). Instead he has his assistant tell staff but only if they ask her. Because apparently he ‘hasn’t made up his mind about what to do’. Sheesh – why don’t you grow a pair? (Sorry, the testiness is coming out.) I’m just trying to trust that karma will take care of him in the end …

    Anzia – thanks for the hugs! I won’t hurt you. Somehow living in Europe I got all huggy so I’m good with that. I’ll just have to accept the virtual version for now.

    Margaret – I don’t know about you but this makes me feel all high school, but in a good way. πŸ˜‰ *hehehe* Without all the crap that came with it.

  19. cdnfreyja said

    Thanks Claire! Have fun with the grandkids.

  20. Margaret said

    We’d all be lying if we said we wouldn’t have wanted to be in Scribble’s place. But now I think we all want details. Scribble: It is SO WRONG to drop something like that here and not give us details but on the other hand maybe its something you want to keep private and treasure, but that doesn’t mean we won’t harrass you to get the details. lol You lucky little Hen (or should I say chick since I don’t know how old you are).

  21. Danae said

    Buongiorno bellas!

    Scribble-O M G! I sighed just hearing he said it to you. Imagine if he said it to me. He has got to be one of the sweetest guys.

    Anzia-Jamaica, sweet, wicked awesome. Margaritaville, hey it’s 5 o’clock somewhere right?

    Now the idiots living at home are driving their car around with no anitfreeze and coolant and flames were shooting out of it and they still drive it. They have got to be the stupidest people I have ever seen. Oh the world is out to get them, they just can’t get any good luck. For crying out loud, suck it up. We all have problems and we don’t dwell on them. SHUT UP!

  22. Himmiefan said

    Dani and Freyja, line up. You need hugs. (((hugs))) Your friends are here for you!

    Oh, come on Pftfvr, you know you want one too! (((hugs))) Now see, that wasn’t all that bad. You lived!

    Now Annalaise, I’m thinking about threes. Three Muskateers (I so didn’t spell that word right….), or maybe Kirk, Spock, and McCoy.

    Okay, so I’m now banned from playing, right?

  23. Absolutely not! Come up with a few solid entries and you’re good!

  24. prtfvr said

    gypsy said: “Prtfvr, NO not that kind of squirmy!”

    Hah! You don’t know WHICH kind of squirmy that made me. You just THINK you do! πŸ˜‰

    But I will accept the blatant flattery. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The outside is already fuzzy.

    And no “hug hits” on old prtfvr. I’ll be down with the hugging but I have my limits. Isn’t there someone else more fun to pick on?

    ‘laise: Et tu, too?! There will be plenty of other people at this thing who LOVE all that hugging stuff, and I don’t wanna be selfish so I can share and let everyone else enjoy them too!

  25. May I suggest some “off the wall” and comical things. For example: a friend and her husband went to a Halloween party one time dressed as an oral and a rectal thermometer, the theme of the party was “personal hygiene products.” I’m going to be judging on creativity, and originality. So don’t necessarily go for the usual threesomes.

    Depending on the winner and images I can find, I will try to take our heroes and dress them in the winning costumes. That should be amusing.

  26. Danae said

    The three Fruit of the Loom guys

  27. Annalaise duChat said

    Prtfvr– It’s only because we love you sssoooo much that we all want a piece of you.

  28. Danae said

    Dizey-Come out of hiding. Where are you? Are you ok? Is everyone ok?

  29. lwildstar said

    Sorry at the moment all i can come up with is Larry, Curley and Mo!

    Will have to think on it – today has been “one of those days” ya know?

    Will check back later if I get the chance – going to go watch the clip again and regenerate some energy…he he he

  30. Danae said

    I’m sure you aren’t feeling up to blogging much.

  31. Annalaise duChat said

    Way back when there were two other girls working in this office with me we used to theme dress for Halloween. One year we were the Three Stooges and One year were were “Russian Supermodels” say RRRRRussian SUUUPERmodels! with a russian accent. I have a picture at home. I’ll try and post it tonight. Very Comical. It took us a long time to live that one down with the customers.

  35. Himmiefan said

    Hey, Mike and Henry could actually team up and as joke, dress up as Vicki!

    Oh, who threw a rock at me?!

  36. Madonna said

    Hi there,

    (((((((HUGS))))))) I hope everything works out.

    Are you feeling any better today?

    Also, good question….. where is Dizey?

    Hope everything is Ok with you. Let us know something.

    Good contest. I have a million things to do but if I’m able to wrap my brain around the concept maybe I can come up with an entry.

    Girl, we must be on the same wavelength because Larry Curly and Mo was what i immediately thought of only I was going to add Coreen as Chimp.

    I think this screep cap is why my mind was going there.

    You know it’s such a grey, cloudy day where I’m at I think it’s time to bring out some sunshine.

    Hmmmmm……..Still a few clouds….. so let’s try another shall we.

    Ahhhh….. That’s better.

  37. Danae said

    They could all go goth and dress like Coreen.

  38. laurel said

    I’ve seriously got to get out more…
    Batman – Mike
    Robin – Henry (
    Catwoman – Vicki
    (okay my first thought was Batgirl w/ motercycle, and I still like that one).

    I think it’s a tight thing. hehe

  39. Himmiefan said

    Dani – now that would be funny!

  40. Danae said

    Madonna-Yep Sunshine, much better now. I’m am better but still a little off.

    That’s a good but Henry as Robin? He is more of a Batman for me.

  41. laurel said

    I think it’s a “tights” thing? Crap, you know what I mean. My mind has gone of on a seperate thread. (Sewing jokes today, I’d better get to work).

  42. laurel said

    Robin because I think the little “Zorro” mask would look better and let his hair stay free.
    Wait a minute…. Zorro…. Henry as Zorro….
    Don’t know what the others are going to wear, but my mind got hung up on that.

  43. Danae said

    The Christian Bale Batman or maybe Val Kilmer but not Michael Keaton. He is just not sexy to me. Maybe George Clooney but I am thinking Christian Bale.

  44. laurel said

    Later loves! I’ve got stuff to do.
    Back in a few hours.

  45. cdnfreyja said

    Well, following up on Danae’s ‘three peas in a pod’ I was thinking along the lines of a Vicki sandwich – Vicki could be whatever filling we want (haven’t figured out anything appropriate but given what is happening at work I feel like saying ‘corned beef’ because of the corny nature of everything here), supported by the two bookends of the sandwich, Mike and Henry. Separately, they’re all great, but they are so much better together. See, toast can be great when you really feel like toast but when you combine it with the right ingredients and you get the world’s most fantastic sandwich, it is better than any piece of toast, any day. Okay, how did I get to the point of referring to Mike and Henry as toast?

    Update on work – the boss called us in to the boardroom at 11:30. Still didn’t grow a pair this morning. I honestly think that he got fed up with all the closed door meetings between staff members (he referenced it). What do you expect us to do when you won’t tell us anything? And some of the staff members can’t be trusted because they are ‘in his pocket’ i.e. they haven’t challenged him? And then people come to me for help – I can’t say ‘sorry, you’re screwed’ and go on about my life. I feel an obligation to do something for them. The meeting was just blather – I didn’t believe a word of it considering he got all political and refused to accept one ounce of blame himself even though he has a big hand in this.

  46. laurel said

    I was going all the way back to Batman on TV in the 60/s.

  47. Danae said

    Vicki can be Elena-Catherine Zeta-Jones. Hmmmmm Mike I’m not sure. Bernardo?

  48. Annalaise duChat said

    That’s the spirit ladies! Now you’re getting the idea. Let the creativity flow.

    Madonna — My partner in crime, I love the screen caps.

  49. Danae said

    A BLT sandwich?

  50. Danae said

    Vicki could be Lady the cocker spaniel Henry Tramp and Mike? From Lady and the Tramp.

  51. Danae said

    Vicki can be the socket Henry can be the plug and Mike can be the pain in the ass kid that electrocutes himself.

    ok spent way toooo much time thinking about this………….

  53. cdnfreyja said

    Hey Madonna,

    Thanks! And thanks for the links to the screen caps. Great pick me up after that meeting.

    (I’m on a late lunch. The work blather went from 11:30 to 1:00pm.)

    And I still have to figure out whether I can transition the money that my women get or whether they are royally screwed until the new fiscal year begins April 1st. I’m strongly leaning towards royally screwed …

  54. Danae said

    The Monkees

  55. lwildstar said

    oh I forgot the pack of M&M’s – my sister did that years and years ago – the kids were so cute! my neice was a baby peanut M&M

  56. cdnfreyja said

    Danae! OMG your imagination is running wild now.

    And the blog just ate my last post. I think it ate it because I used the word scr*wed in reference to royally twice. Sheesh!

  57. Danae said

    When I get going I can’t stop.

  58. Annalaise duChat said

    I just love it when you ladies get creative. So many great suggestions! I just wish I could participate.

  59. Annalaise duChat said

    Oh h#ll I’m going to throw one out there just for the heck of it.

    Henry: Romeo, Vickie: Juliet, Mike: Tybalt Just think about the tights ladies.

  60. lwildstar said

    I have this vison of a costum party – where Mike and Henry decide to slam each other – Mike comes dressed as the “typical” vamp – black opra cape and such, Henry comes dress as Columbo – damn trench coat…and Vicki…well she has a wicked sense of humor…she could come dressed as a hooker and tease them all night with lines like “You can’t afford me”

  61. lwildstar said

    ok I’m out of here!

  62. Himmiefan said

    Did somebody already say this? Bacon, eggs, and toast.

    I’m eating lunch, you see…

  63. Annalaise duChat said

    Good one Wildstar!

  64. Danae said

    The Three Amigos-Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase.

  65. Himmiefan said

    Henry can be Harry Potter, Vicki can be Hermione, and Mike can be Ron.

  66. Madonna said

    Don’t know why but I like the Marx Brothers suggestion. Something about the thought of them wearing those fake mustaches and talking funny.

    Partner in crime? Damn, did I black out and let you talk me into doing something stupid again? I thought we were just doing Kyle’s makeup. OK, tell me, what did I do?

    And yes, Isn’t it amazing the light that shines through that man’s smile. Makes you feel good all over.

  67. cdnfreyja said

    Annalaise, as much as I love Mike, I don’t know if I want to see him in tights.

  68. Madonna said

    What about Mike as Superman, Henry as Spiderman and Christina as Wonder Woman?

  69. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna — Just a figure of speech. Nothing more.

  70. Madonna said

    What if they went as each other. Mike as Henry, fangs and all, Henry as Vicki, and Vicki as Mike?

  71. Madonna said

    I know ‘laise, I’m just pickin at ya.

  72. Danae said

    Vicki-The Cat if the Hat, Henry-Thing One, Mike Thing 2

  73. What about Henry as Henry VIII, Mike as Thomas Cromwell and Vicki as Elizabeth Blount? I could see Henry in all those jewels and Mike dressed in the Black robes of office (their version of the trench coat πŸ˜‰ )

  74. Or…Henry as a gangster, Mike as a 40’s constable and Vicki as the moll?

  75. Annalaise duChat said

    OOOOH The cat in the hat good one!

    Elizabeth– Very Good! The educated man’s Halloween costume. Nice.

  76. Annalaise duChat said

    I have a feeling this is going to be a hard one to judge.

  77. Madonna said

    Hey Annalaise, maybe you should send out an email so that those who don’t check the blog regularly might get the chance to play as well.

  78. Danae said

    Austin Powers, Dr Evil and ?

  79. Danae said

    Allota Fagina? Dixie Normous?

  80. Madonna said

    How about Vicki as Buffy, Mike as Angel and Henry could get the chance to go out in public as himself.

  81. Annalaise duChat said

    Consider it done.

  82. Danae said

    Annie Oakley, Geronimo, and Buffalo Bill

  83. Danae said

    Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens girlfriend

  84. Madonna said

    How about a role reversal. Mike as Dracula, Vicki in pale makeup and bite marks on the neck, as the newly turned victim and Henry as the vampire slayer with stakes and all.

  85. cdnfreyja said

    OMG ladies, you are just so creative! Too bad my mind is very slow today. I was busy on the phone last night talking shop with one of the women’s board members until 11:30pm and my brain just doesn’t want to function. I’ll have to give it some more thought to move it beyond the sandwich idea I had … very lame … yes, but I’m tired.

    And I called the headhunter already this afternoon and told her I want to go to Vancouver. Come h-e-double-hockey-sticks or high water I’ll get there.

  86. Annalaise duChat said

    Freyja — I kind of liked the sandwich idea. Tacky but fun!

  87. Maddie Mo said

    Hello all, couldn’t get caught up till lunch.

    Costume idea— Henry — Tarzan, Vicki as Jane —Mike as the monkey Cheeta??? Henry in what else just a loin cloth.

    Also j Henry as Adam Vicki as Eve and Mike could be the snake to temp Ee with the Apple. and of course only leaves for the costume. I will have to share some credit for this idea with Claire as Nikki went as Eve to her Halloween paty.

  88. Maddie Mo said

    Cleary thinking of Henry in those costumes effected my ability to type in my last post. Sorry for all the typo’s and missed letters. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  89. cdnfreyja said

    Annalaise, what can I say? I’m always happy to bring a little cheese to any occasion! Plus,my brain doesn’t operate well on little sleep.

  90. Maddie Mo said

    okay I can not find the preview over at LT. Can someone please send me the link. Pretty please with Henry on top…

  91. Madonna said

    Hi Maddie Mo,
    Look under where it says shows on Lifetime’s site not full episodes, and click on Blood Ties. It’s with the video from the chat.

  92. Claire said

    I like your idea Maddie Mo!! but Henry would have to be the snake…cause he is so damned tempting! πŸ˜‰

  93. msgypsy said

    Hokay, here’s my Doctor Who scheme. I’m assuming they’ve been invited to a Doctor Who themed party, probably given by Colleen, or maybe by a friend of the invisible (for good reason!) Tony.

    Mike as Captain Jack.
    A couple of reasons. One is that Jack wears that long coat. Another is that he carries a large weapon. (Hush, Prtfvr!) Third is that he’s the leader and representative of authority. (In a recent episode, we hear Jack call the Prime Minister and take him to task about something.) Mike would think he’d come up with something to trump Henry.

    Henry, hearing about this, realizes that even dressing as The Doctor, he’s at a disadvantage as there are many version of The Doctor but only one Jack. (Although cracks about “The Face of Boe” would be appropriate…don’t ask!) So he dresses as The Master, but the Roger Delgado version. and encourages Vicki to dress as Romana. However, Vicki is far too independent for this and she dresses as Sara Jane Smith in her most recent incarnation, one in which she is no longer interested in hanging out with The Doctor, and who considers Jack and Torchwood to be kind of extreme. (This version of Sarah Jane has her own BBC series which is quite delightful from what I’ve seen of it.)

    If they’re to be the Torchwood Strut, then Mike stays as described above. (WWII outfit, alien looking weaponry) and Henry and Vicki wear long leather dusters and walk alongside him, always looking hopelessly serious. Not as much fun as what I’ve described above.

    Can you tell how addicted to Doctor Who I am? Have been for decades? That I’m trying to combine it with Blood Ties is just another symptom…

    Alternate costume idea: A priest, a rabbi, and a Buddhist monk. There’s a joke in there somewhere…

  94. msgypsy said

    Wow, all those links and I didn’t get shoved into the spam bucket! Amazing.

  95. Maddie Mo said

    Claire, I think you are right. He would be much better as the snake and much more tempting.

  96. Annalaise duChat said

    Wow msgypsy! That’s all I can say. I’d like to see Mike in that getup.

    Oh and nice presentation. LOL!

  97. Himmiefan said

    Good for you, Freyja! There are good things out there for you!

  98. Danae said

    Time for me to scoot. I have to go to my sister’s salon so she can torture me by waxing my brows then Amber has dance class. Ciao!

  99. Danae said

    I’m sure she will enjoy it. I bleed everytime. It might be her version of paying for your sins.

  100. cdnfreyja said

    Himmiefan – I am SO determined to move there. I need to get away from the craziness of this city and go somewhere where this laid back gal can thrive.

  101. Margaret said

    Not too original but here goes: Henry goes as his father, fat belly, tights and all, Vicki goes as one of his wives, with one of those lovely period dresses (red velvet with lace trim) with her assets peeking out from a lacey bustier, and poor Mike, a very tall court jester (yellow tights with an orange velvet shirt, kind of like the red one that Henry wore in the “Vicki, Warrier Princess episode”), can’t remember exactly which one it was) with one of those silly three point hats with the bells on them.

  102. Madonna said

    Bye Dani, Sorry I missed you.

    Are you OK? I’m starting to worry.

    Well we all know the answer to this, but check it out anyway.

  103. Madonna said

    BTW… If you read the article, when did Henry say THAT? It has to be from an upcoming episode.

  104. nina said

    Ms.gypsy – Love the new pic!

    Scribble – You lucky girl!!!!!!! He called you “Honey”! Get down from cloud nine and tell us when???

    Anzia – JAMAICA!!! Ok I could totally use a sunny vacation now .

    Margaret – LOL very funny! I totally can picture Mike in those yellow tights and hats. The expression on his face would be like the one he had on the end of the last episode πŸ™‚

    Holloween is comming up right? It’s not very populair here, but it would be rocking if it was πŸ™‚ Is anyone planning to dress upo their husbands as Henry???

  105. “I don’t need to make a sexual advance, I am one”. OMG! Loved that line. Thanks Madonna for posting that link! πŸ™‚

  106. nina said

    OMG Madonna – Thanks for the link! And can someone please help and tell when Henry said that???? I can’t believe that we would miss that.

  107. Madonna said

    No problem girls! I think it has to be from an upcoming episode.

  108. Margaret said

    Yes, Nina, can’t you just see him with that pained look upon his face (that he wears more often than not), add to that the embarassment of the get up. I like Mike but I like Henry more.

  109. nina said

    Margeret, I can just hear him say “How did I get here?” LOL
    And Henry will be there to answer it πŸ˜‰

  110. Maddie Mo said

    I’m out of here for the night. I will see ya’ll in the morning. everyone have a good night.

  111. Himmiefan said

    Oh Madonna, I love that line!! Thanks for the link!

  112. lwildstar said

    wellits quiet here tonight so I guess I will log off 😦

  113. msgypsy said

    Bless that Arrowyn! The Torchwood Strut:

    Bear in mind that the woman on our left in this picture (carrying the case with the mysterious something in it) died at the end of this episode. Like in the Buffyverse, folks don’t always STAY dead in Torchwood, but her return is short-lived so it’s all good.

  114. vicki said

    hey all..

    Trying to get on the blog more than I have lately…so busy….

    Scribble…I am sooo jealous…and why in the world were you near enough to Kyle without attacking his boyd???? UH??? I am so confused…if I was anywhere near that man…God help him and me…I would either be a puddle at his feet….or in jail for assault. HEHEHE Just kidding…REALLY!!!

    Ok…costumes for the boys and girl..Hmmmm I think Henry should go as a priest…..and Vicki as a schoolteacher(total opposite of herself) and of course…Mike would have to go as a werewolf…(just to piss of Henry) or a sucubus lvoer demon…>EHEHEHEHHE

    I am ready for Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  115. Arrowyn said

    All blessings appreciated. You’re welcome, Gypsy.

  116. Margaret said

    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in California. I know how they feel somewhat as Florida had wildfires about 5 years ago that were really frightening. Hopefully, Kyle and his neighorhors homes are safe. The firefighters are stretched to the limit and right about now, if they haven’t already, they will need to bring in other firemen from other states. (Sorry to be a downer).

    Well, I was putting the birds to bed and Henry was the last one to grab. Next thing I know, I hear screaming. My African Grey bit his leg almost completely off. He’s going to lose it for sure. It’s just hanging on by a thread. WHY?! Henry’s usually smarter than this. I don’t know what he was thinking. I’m going to have to board him to make the trip on Friday. I can’t leave him home. If he doesn’t bleed to death over night that is.

    Oh me, I went from zero to 60 in 10 seconds. 😦

    Hi All,
    I’m just now getting to email and the blog.

    You lucky lady, YOU!!!! Thanks for stopping by and chatting with us. We appreciate your visits.

    Hey Sai!
    Glad to see you back at MsGypsy’s!

    So sorry to hear about your work situation. I hope that this door closing, opens a new and wonderful place for you.
    Keep breathing!

    { { { H U G S } } } to all that need them!

    I’m not sure when I will get back online between now and Friday… until then…
    everyone be well and safe!

  120. rifkind said

    Can you go to an all night drug store? Get a styptic pencil or powder and use that to stop the bleeding?
    My Mom’s love bird had a pin feather bleeding and it wouldn’t stop, and that is what she did to stop the feather from bleeding..
    So sorry to hear about your little bird.. poor baby.

    now you get a HUG, just because you need it !!!!! Even if you don’t know it!

  121. msgypsy said

    Prtfvr, hugs to you and to the poor little bird. Well, he doesn’t actually get hugs because they wouldn’t be good for him. But poor little Henry!

  122. Anzia said

    Prtmama- I’m sorry. ((((HUGS)))) Yeah, you hate ’em but you can’t deny me. I’m your daughter! Besides, you need ’em. (just like Rif said)

    Rif- *waves* HEY YOU! ^_^ You’re still one of my favorite peeps for that box! It seriously sits on my headboard. Don’t let it outa my SIGHT! ^_^

    Diz- HEY BIG SIS…how are you? ^_^

  123. prtfvr said

    You can’t use styptic or powder on a wound this serious. His leg’s almost completely off and those things are for superficial wounds. I have some neosporin on it which I’m hoping will block it from bleeding but the bone is broken in half and sticking out. I just can’t believe that this happened. WTF?

  124. rifkind said

    Hey Anzia!
    I hope that the new job is going well. I am so glad that you got away from that bad situation at Kohls.

    Yup, I knew you’d like that present! Hee Hee… Shhhhh, can’t be telling everyone! LOL But I bet it DOES give you sweet dreams.. and when I say SWEET, I mean awesome wicked!!!

    I hope that the new job really works out so that you can get out and get your own apartment. { { { HUGS } } }

  125. rifkind said

    IS there a 24 hour vet open? Sheesh, poor baby! I know that only some vets really know how to deal with birds but it might be worth a try. You could call and see if anybody that is open knows about birds..

  126. Claire said

    Awww…Merde Prtfvr!!!…poor..poor Henry! I used to have an African Grey,their bite is wicked!! To bad you’re not here..The vet I use has 24hour emergency walk in care and an exotic animal wing,just for birds,lizards and anything else.

    I hope everything turns out ok!
    I’m so looking forward to Thursday! my grandkids wore me out! Josie ran away to play in traffic again,nearly got flattened by two trucks which caused my poor sensitive Alexa to fall in a heap crying hysterically on my doorstep! 20 minutes later and 4 neighbors we caught the little B#$%h!!!!!!!!!!!
    She is now punished in her kennel!
    So I’d better say Bonne Nuit..until tomorrow my lovelies!

  127. prtfvr said

    The only 24 hour vet we have no longer handles birds. The vet who handles that started his own office but it’s not 24 hours so I’m going to have to wait until he opens at 8 tomorrow.

    Poor Henry. He’s such a wild man too. I don’t know how he’s going to handle losing that leg although I’ll just be happy for him to survive.

  128. himmiefan said

    Prtfvr – I’m so sorry about poor Henry. Bless his little feathery heart. Prayers for Henry!

  129. Arrowyn said

    Prtfvr, I’m so, so sorry to hear about Henry. I imagine you won’t get much sleep tonight. Give him lots of love – from all of us. I’ll be checking the blog and emails tomorrow as frequently as I can until you let us know what happens. Sending much love to you and Henry.

  130. Margaret said

    Prtfvr: How’s Henry this morning? Sorry to hear that he’s hurt. Know that he’s in our thoughts and prayers.

  131. prtfvr said

    It was a long night but Henry made it. He’s as pissed off as ever. He didn’t move last night, just leaned in a corner but I expect a lot of leaning in his future until he get used to missing that leg. I have a hard time believing it could be saved. There’s no blood supply to that leg now and it’s been like that all night so…

    The avian vet doesn’t get in until 11 so Henry will have to wait a bit longer. I’m trying to get him to at least drink but he’s not having it. I’ve been putting drops of water on my finger and putting it on the side of his beak. That’s pissing him off too but he still drinks it.

    Our Henry – losing a leg and STILL an asshole!

  132. Claire said

    Morning my ladies!!!!! It’s dark and very wet here…I think the county can stop complaining about the water emergency now! I’m hoping it stops..the nature reserve has a great Halloween trail through our forest complete with spooky sounds and monsters,but my kids have yet to go cause last year it rained so it was canceled and they’re forecasting rain until Sunday! The trail for kids their age is tomorrow.Ahh Prtfvr I’m glad Henry made it through the night…but isn’t that just like a man lol! get hurt and act like a butt hole!! I hope the vet can fix him up,at least almost like new!

    Well going to check emails now and do some work,have so much to do before the invasion! LOL!!

    Love yas!

  133. nina said

    Prtfvr – {{{HUGS}}} For you and Henry. I’ll be checking in later to see how he’s doing.


  134. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all!

    Prtfvr– I’m so sorry about Henry. Please keep us posted on how he is doing.

  135. cdnfreyja said

    Good morning ladies!

    This gal is tired. I actually had a great post ready to send here last night but I was interrupted by one of my colleagues who called after 11pm and is all freaked out about the work situation. I went to copy the text and hit the wrong key and it disappeared. Anyway, here is the gist of what I wanted to say.

    Margaret – Canada is sending help to California. We’ve already sent equipment and today we’re sending one of the world’s biggest water bombers in the world. There are literally just a handful of them and we have 2. Forest fire season is pretty much over here so I’m not sure whether we’ll be sending personnel down or not. They criss-cross the country every season going where needed.

    prtfvr – sorry to hear about your bird. I’m hoping that he’ll be okay!

    rifkind – thanks! I’m not stressing too much. But in the meantime I’m busy working. Of course, I won’t get compensated for the overtime I’m putting in during the evenings this week but that is beside the point now. I’m still doing my job and will do so until the end.

    Okay, I need to get some caffeine now.

  136. cdnfreyja said

    Oh boy, I must really be tired – I was a bit repetitive in that posting. Sheesh!

  137. Annalaise duChat said

    Good Morning All!

    Poor Henry! I am understanding this correctly? He did this to himself? Is self mutilation something that happens frequently with birds? Geez prtfvr, I hope he’s going to be OK.
    You are in my thoughts today.

  138. laurel said

    Oh dear, poor Henry! And poor Prtmama!
    That little bugger needs to figure out what a lucky guy he is to have you there to care for and worry about him.
    He can go lean in the corner if he must, but you can lean on all of us. πŸ™‚ We are praying for your little guy.
    Okay, I added a prayer that he has a personallity improvement along with healing. Figured it couldn’t hurt. 😎

  139. Prtfvr – I am so sorry to hear about Henry. Please let us know what happens after you have taken him to the vet.

    cdnfreyja – you are holding up remarkably well considering all the changes happening in your life. I thought I could be pretty laid back, but I think you have me beat! I know good things are waiting for you πŸ™‚

    I am very concerned about the fires in California. My sister had to evacuate her home on Monday because the fire was so close. They were notified by a cop going through the neighborhoods with a loud speaker at 5:30 in the morning that they had to get out. They did get that fire mostly contained and she was allowed to return home yesterday, but she said there is another one moving their way pretty quickly. She said ash is everywhere and they are being advised not to go outside unless absolutely necessary. Pretty scary.

  140. Danae said

    Hello Ladies!

    Prtfvr-Poor Henry! Why the hell would he want to bite his own leg off.

    Things suck big time around here. I so cannot wait to step on that plane and let all worries slide away. For a few days at least. Things are getting worse with the houseguests from hell. Bob had to go to an appointment last night. They apparently got smart because they asked Marsha’s son Keith to drive them so they wouldn’t have to drive their car. Bob isn’t allowed to go anywhere without Marsha, she refuses to let him out of her sight. I am surprised she doesn’t follow him into the bathroom. They climb into Keith’s big truck and drive off. Next thing we know they are back. Marsha is trying like hell to get out of the truck which is high of the ground. They both keep blocking her exit and shutting the door again. They were hitting her and Bob said, I am going to f*^#%n kill you. My landlady heard this going on and that made her mad and think that maybe she doesn’t want them living in the room in her basement. They have been fixing it up for them. I don’t know what to do anymore. It has gotten way out of hand. My brother left in the car and Marsha whispers to me He isn’t going to the police is he. I was thinking he damn well better be. I don’t care how bad the person is. No one has the right to lay their hands on another person in anger. I guy that does it to a woman is just plain coward. They are dragging all of us into this hell. I am most worried about Amber. She does not need to be hearing or seeing things like this.

  141. lwildstar said

    I got an email from one of my old co-workers (when I worked for the crazy people) telling me her family is safe and sound (I haven’t heard from this woman in 4 years) – but her daughter lost her home – theres nothing left but a chared slab – thankfully they were able to evacuate everyone including their pets, which is afterall what really matters. She said that they are going to move in with her until the insurance company sorts everything out – in a strange way I think she is happy – this woman was widowed about 6 months before I stopped working for them – and has been living alone in this huge house – now its full again and her grand children are there – what do they call these? small blessings? – Ihave to find the silver lining in everything or i’d go nuts

    When I spoke with the technician about the copier – whic is still not fixed – I started laughing at how obsered the whole things has gotten – they still can’t fix it and they are sending someone out today to look again – we get the new one on Friday – when she said it was good that I could laugh at it I said” If I dont laugh, I’ll start screaming and the copier will be going out the window.”

    Prtfvr – OH MY POOR BABY! Henry soundls like a fighter so I’m sure he’ll do well even one legged – he’ll probably be even more of a pain!

  142. Scribble said

    Hey All:

    Just poking my nose in to say Hey!

    I am wicked swamped and don’t really have much to report from life here on the bubble.

    To answer the Honey question, we were talking via email so unfortunately I still actually haven’t met Kyle yet. Although I wouldn’t go as fangirly as I did when I got to meet Robin Williams a few years back. The producer knew I was a monster fan so they brought him to my office, I squealed and hid in a closet. I couldn’t stop giggling so he left and came back a couple days later where we hung out and had a great time.

    Hey Cdnfreyja what sort of work do you do? Are you in Toronto?

    For anybody in or with friends or relatives in California please know that you all are in my prayers and I hope this comes to an end soon.


  143. lwildstar said

    Thanks for stopping by Scribbles! you are so lucky that you even get to “talk” to Kyle….sigh…..
    Thank you for keeping us updated… you know what the “deadline” is for a decison to be made?


  144. lwildstar said

    oh Dani – wish i could be there to give you a hug – you sound like you could use one….I just can’t beleive how this has escalated (sp).
    Just take a deep breath – remember we are all here for you!

  145. lwildstar said

    laurel – mom stopped by and picked up the box – I emailed you the tracking number – please let me know when you get it – if mom makes it to the post office today – you might have it Saturday, i sent it priority mail…..

    well it seems slow today – and I forgot my writting!

    we had a scare yesturday – someone wandered into the office – and we think stole someones wallet – I keep telling them they have to keep the back doors (lead into the common hall) locked – that will last a few days and then they go right back to leaving them unlocked…sigh…this is the second time in a month – tho the first time the person left without doing anything…..
    It just makes you feel so violated……

    its almost FRIDAY!!!!!!

  146. lwildstar said

    apparently I’m alone so I am going to log out!

    luv ya – I’ll check in to night if I can…..

  147. cdnfreyja said

    Hi Scribble – I’m actually in Ottawa. Not too far away from Toronto considering the size of North America!

    wildstar – my parents had a breakin back in 1998. Luckily I was away in Dallas at the time and I had my best jewelry with me. My mom came home to find that a window had been smashed out. Immediately she went down the street to the home of the retired RCMP sargeant. The RCMP was called. Basically we didn’t lose much – jewelry, my parents’ camera. (luckily my mom had decided to wear both her wedding ring and anniversary band that day) They didn’t even snag any electronics. But whoever it was decided that kicking our cat would be a great thing to do.

    Unfortunately, this wasn’t an example of the slogan ‘they always get their man’. Definitely not their finest hour. The police accused my parents of leaving the doors unlocked. Gee, why did the thieves break the windows, then? They refused to even dust for prints – not like this small town is full of crime so it wasn’t like they were too busy. And with all the connections between thefts and drugs (and in this case a rash of breakins in the area) gee, do you think it might have been good just to have this on record somewhere? Sheesh!

    It was really weird to come back home after my vacation and go into my room thinking that people had been rifling through my stuff.

  148. Madonna said

    Hi ladies,

    Really busy here so I can’t stay long.

    The African Grey that you have bit Henry right? I’m so sorry for him and you. I’m a bird lover too. You’re in my prayers. Let us know what the vet says OK.

    HUGS to you and your family. I know your mom is a kind-hearted person and all but why doesn’t she ask them to leave?

    I’m sure you do feel violated. Just like Maddie Mo did when her office is broken into. I feel lucky because I’m fairly safe in this building. They broadcast our local FOX television from our building so there is tight security. There are even combination locks on the women’s restrooms.

    Miss ya!!!!!!

  149. Danae said

    They will be gone by the time I get back from Claire’s. She has asked them to leave. Then she recinded and said they have until the end of the month. Now they have until this weekend and they are out of there.

    I heard from Dizey everyone. She is fine. Just not feeling up to blogging right now.

  150. Danae said

    That was not meant to sound like she doesn’t want to to blog with us. She does. Things are just not good for her right now.

  151. lwildstar said

    Thanks guys – its just one of those weird feelings – know someone was in here. I keep my stuff locked in my desk all the ime – no i dont’ trust my co-workers – but I’ve seen other ladies leave their purses open on thier desks. Normally its pretty safe here – but every once in a while soething like this happens.

    When I got mugged – geeze like15-20 years ago – I couldn’t go out of the house with out having anxity attacks even if someone was with me – it took about a month for the worst of the attacks to go away – I was afraid I would be trapped in the house forever…but ever since then, every once in awhile if someone gets too close on the bus, or train – or on the street – my heart starts to race (and not in a good way!) thankfully – knock on wood – I haven’t been a victim of a break in…….

    well lunch is over – must return to work…. 😦

  152. Danae said

    I am just going to shut up now. That still didn’t sound good. You all know what I mean.

  153. lwildstar said

    Thank you for the update Dani…I was starting to get worried. Please pass our hugs on to her…..boy we are just going to be a hug fest this weekend!

    Well the blog at my post and its time to return to work – talk at you later!

  154. I thought I would pass this along to everyone. What can I say; I was amused πŸ˜‰

    The population of this country is 300 million.

    160 million are retired.

    That leaves 140 million to do the work.

    There are 85 million in school.

    Which leaves 55 million to do the work.

    Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal government.

    Leaving 15 million to do the work.

    2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama

    Which leaves 12.2 million to do the work.

    Take from that total the 10.8 million people who work for state and city
    Governments. And that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

    At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.

    Leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

    Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.

    That leaves just two people to do the work.

    You and me.

    And there you are,

    Sitting on your bum,

    At your computer, reading jokes.

    Nice. Real nice

    I admit it, I am easily amused.

    Danae – I hope everything is okay with our Dizey? Please pass along that we miss her and I hope that whatever is going on in her life gets better.

    cdnfreyja – My home in Tennessee was broken into while I was away one weekend. I lived out in the middle of nowhere which made it really shocking to me. A lot of my beautiful jewelry was stolen and some other things went missing, but the absolute worst was knowing that all my clothing had been rifled through and trampled on the floor. I couldn’t rest until everything was washed and the house scrubbed. The County Sheriff told me that it would be unlikely I would ever recover any of the items stolen or that they would ever catch whomever did it. Yeah, I felt all warm and fuzzy after that one, I can tell you.

  155. I think my post went in to cyber hell for awhile. I won’t re-do it because I am sure it will show up later….I hope.

  156. Danae said

    She’s fine just things have come up.

  157. laurel said

    Danae – Girl, you are in my prayers. I hope this weekend gives you a great break and a major energy re-charge. I’m glad you will be getting together with everyone.
    How many are actually going to Claire’s? I hope the city is ready!!! πŸ™‚
    Will anyone have a computer to update those of us who will be living vicariously via the internet?
    I want lots of pictures!!
    Who am I kidding? I want to go too! Waaaaaaa!

  158. Scribble said

    Okay, just cuz I am on a really good caffeine high and feel like getting everybody excited, I have one word to say about “5:55” this friday’s episode:


    It’s definitely my favourite!


  159. nina said

    Are we having a party at Claire’s? I want to come! πŸ™‚

    lwildstar – I know that feeling of violation too well 😦 Some what 2 years ago a girl in the University building across the street of mine almost got raped! It was only 5 pm and to think of it I always stay untill 8 pm at the University! Since then I try to get home as soon as my classes are finished, but it’s really crazy that you can’t feel safe at school 😦

    prtfvr – How is Henry doing now? I said a little prayer for him. I had a bird few years ago and I know how worried you must be. Mine actually flew away for a couple of days 😦 I was so sad! Thank god he returned safe and sound.

    Ok ladies leaving again.I’ve a deadline tomorrow, on Friday and I’ve to prepare for a presentation 😦 School is kiling me!!!


  160. nina said

    Scribble – You lucky girl!!!
    Saw the promo, can’t wait for it. And knowing that it’s Christina’s favourite and now hearing that it’s yours too, it must be GOOD.

  161. Anne said

    I was already excited from watching the preview on Lifetime at MSN

    Awwww that sounds very, very promising.

    Meanwhile I’ve been capping Kyle’s Missing episode and let me tell you, it’s a mighty frustrating business when there’s subtitles so I’ve had to patch this one together from 2 images – but I like it – I really really like it.

  162. Anne said

    And let me repeat – I wish there was a preview function on wordpress …
    Hope the link works this time …

  163. Danae said

    Oooooooo and a bunch of us are going to be at Claire’s to watch it. I CAN’T WAIT!

  164. Danae said

    That teaser in the elevator was just HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT I can go on and on.

  165. Anne said

    He ended the world for her!

  166. prtfvr said

    The vet said that he might be able to save Henry’s leg. It was my African Grey that bit him. He didn’t do it to himself. He’s not THAT big an ass.

    Anyhow, just finished talking to the vet. Henry’s out of surgery and awake and being an ass hole ALREADY. Vet said he was up hobbling around his cage. He has a splint that he has to wear for 4 – 6 weeks and it has to be changed twice a day. Vet said that Henry was a tough bird especially since he’s only six months old.

    Makes me think of when our Henry took an ass whooping in the second episode. Hopefully I won’t have Birdy Vamp Henry now! I’ve been taking my birds to this vet for the past 10 years. I really like him. He’s gotten me through some tough times.

    Since I’m going to Claire’s on Friday, I’m going to board him until I get back. I don’t want to imagine what would happen to him if I left this crew at home to deal with him! They voted he get a peg leg so that he’d be a “real pirate bird”. These are the dumb-asses I live with.

    Anyhow, doc said that he’s not sure that the leg would take but that he still had a good blood supply so he’s hopeful. He said that he might lose some toes though because the circulation was cut off to some of them. I need to watch him for five days to make sure everything’s ok.

    I’m exhausted. Terrible night last night waking up to stare at Henry. I really want to take a nap but I have to go pick up the husband soon. Damn it.

    Ah, just found out what it’s going to cost me: $300. That includes the emergency visit, the surgery, the two different anti-biotics he has to take – it was THAT bad, and boarding for 5 days. $300 and I’m relieved because I thought it was going to be $500, it’s not easy to operate on those little bones.

    Ok, bored you enough. Bye.

  167. Danae said

    300 that’s it. I would have thought it would be more. I am so glad he is ok. I swear you said he bit it himself.

  168. prtfvr said

    Oh, one more Henry bulletin: I asked one of the assistants if he was eating and she was nice enough to go back and check. She said she held out a pellet for Henry to eat and that he took it and threw it at her. That’s my boy!

  169. prtfvr said

    I’m pretty sure that I said my Grey bit him but I was kind of stressed at the time so anything’s possible.

  170. nina said

    Prtfvr – Nice to hear that his leg might be saved. You get some rest now dear!

    Okay, just saw the preview of the lift for the first time!!
    WHAT!!!! Ended the world for her? And the ending OMG OMG OMG.
    Now I really can’t wait. Anne thank you so much for posting the link here πŸ™‚

  171. Gotta love that bird! It doesn’t seem like anything is going to keep him down for long! I am glad the prognosis is looking good. Now, all you need is to get some rest yourself.

    Scribble – You post made me smile and then I had to go watch that clip again. It sure does make this heart go pitty pat. I can hardly wait for Friday!

  172. prtfvr said

    I worry about so many Hens in one room watching this episode together! Claire, I hope you have an industrial sized fan. I think it’s going to get pretty hot in there! πŸ˜‰

  173. Arrowyn said

    Prtfvr, I’m glad bird-Henry made it through the night, even with his rotten temperament intact. I know that wild birds can stand and hop on one leg – will Henry do that eventually? And what about the offending bird? Is he just an agressive breed or is there sometning wrong? Sorry, I don’t know anything about domestic birds.

    cdnfreyja — YEA CA-NA-DA!

    My loving thoughts and wishes to everyone who knows someone going through the California mess. A friend of our Office Manager is in that area, too, and has been evacuated.

    Danae, your parents don’t have “houseguests”, from hell or otherwise. They have squatters! And, yes, the police should have been called. IMHO.

    lwildstar, that was a happy story about your ex-co-worker having her family move in with her. As bad as what we hear happening in California, there are always unexpected happy events that result from the tragedy.

  174. Himmiefan said

    Prtfvr – I’m so glad Henry’s doing better! I can just imagine the poor thing hobblling around with a splint. Throwing the peanut at the assistant is priceless!!

    Get some rest, and keep us updated!!

    Scribble – I can’t wait!! πŸ™‚

  175. Maddie Mo said

    I’m glad to hear Henry is doing good. I hope the surgery works well and the leg is saved. I can’t imagine operating on such tiny little legs. $300 is good for all that he needs.

  176. Arrowyn said

    Prtfvr, I was typing while you were posting about Henry. I’m so glad the news is (relatively) good. He IS a tough little bugger!

    Scribble — first, I don’t think I’ve thanked you before for keeping us informed of anything and everything. Because of you and Anne, we are a happy crew – well, as happy as we can be without knowing if BT is renewed. But that’s another story.

    However, Scribble, if you ever EVER just drop a bombshell on us like that “honey” line without an explanation for 2 days, you are in big trouble! On the other hand, you certainly got our hearts racing (as if we need higher blood pressure). Just kidding (sort of). You know we all love you. Many thanks for the backstory. Of course, now we all have a major case of Kyle-envy. I understand about Robin Williams — I might have done the same thing.

  177. Arrowyn said

    I copied these from “somewhere” for our memory books. As if we need prompts to remember!

    Dylan Neal does those charmingly, boyish looks so very, very well. When he dips his head and look up through his lashes with that grin, my oh my. *fanning self*
    I cannot be the only one who thinks Mike looks sooo much sexier with that 5 o’clock shadow.
    Mike: “Your Lordship.”
    Henry: “Constable”
    Then, Mike’s eyeroll without actually doing an eyeroll.
    Henry saying that he almost regrets having to draw Mike being eaten by hellhounds.
    Vicki: “Well, from what I can tell here, her people are just as hinky as she is. Outside of their driver’s licenses, they don’t have school records, medical records, immunizations. I mean, they’ve been totally off the grid for their entire lives.”
    Henry: “Neither do I. That doesn’t make me a killer…..bad example.”
    Vicki: “You know that shapeshifter idea’s not all bad.”
    Henry: “Oh it’s good.”
    Vicki: “Why?”
    Henry: “I’ve been stuck on my villain for my new series. Celluci being shredded by werethings. Now, that gives me inspiration.”
    Vicki: “Henry, stay with the program.”
    Vicki: “You always did have a way with the ladies.”
    Mike: “I’ve never had any illusions. Look where it got me with you.”
    Alyssa: “Do you know what it is like to have to hide your true nature?”
    Henry: “Intimately.” With the pained eyes — sweet mercy, that boy can emote.
    Mike (turning to walk away): “I hate him.”
    Henry’s grin just widens.

    No repercussions for my African Grey for biting Henry. Henry was at fault. He shouldn’t have had his narrow, little ass on her cage in the first place. Problem is, he’s smarter than this! He must have had a brain fart. It happens to the best of us.

  179. prtfvr said

    Scribble: I love Robin Williams too! You’re SO lucky! That was a good friend you had there!

    Should Kyle’s email address accidentally find it’s way on the net somehow, I’m and I’ll let you know if I see anyone else with it! πŸ˜‰

  180. msgypsy said

    Happy lunchtime, folks!

    My friend’s entire family in San Diego (her in-laws, that is) have lost their homes. That’s six houses and a ranch. They’re praying and waiting to hear if the horses are okay. This is so awful! I keep trying to send our abundant rain southwards, but it’s not cooperating.

    I know we have some blogkin here in California. If anyone knows of a blogger who is in California and who’s been missing for the past couple of days, let me know because I can get to their email addresses and try to check up on them. (It could be they’ve just had other stuff to do than blog and they’re not affected at all, but I’d like to at least try to be certain of that.)

    Scribble, gosh, multiple posts in one day! I’ll have to name topics after you more often.

    Have I mentioned to anyone that I make awesome cole slaw? In case anyone’s curious.

    Henry-the-Bird is improving! YAY! I think he’s taking a page from his namesake and not letting little things like injuries stop him. Good bird!

    You know, since none of the Portland gang is going to Claire’s we can always have our own mini-get together on Friday, if we can agree on a place and everyone else is interested…. It’s just a thought.

  181. Danae said

    Lady Afrodyte is in Fresno I think.

  182. msgypsy said

    Prtfvr, promise me you don’t mean to do anything should Kyle’s email address accidentally reach you. Leave to poor kid alone! I’m sure he’s got a nice, full life without double (in some cases, triple) entendres…..

    (And I mean that is the sweetest, least offensive possible way but am aware it can be misconstrued…)

  183. Madonna said

    Hey y’all,

    We had virtually no rain all summer here and now in the past 2 days we’ve had over 5 inches and it is supposed to rain here steadily the next 3 days.

    We need a little more sunshine….

    Yep, better!!

    I’m glad you got some promising news. He sounds like a stinker! $300 isn’t bad at all. I just had to loan my sister $600 last week when her cat came down with blood poisoning and had to be hospitalized for 3 days.

    Speaking of animals, I took Boo-Boo to a dog Halloween party last night at PetSmart. He was soooo adorable and so well behaved. We had about 20 people ask us if they could take his picture.

    I have to admit when I first saw your name and that you wanted to get everyone excited that your post might have contained some news for us, and my heart skipped a beat. If that doesn’t say how much I want Blood Ties to return I don’t guess anything will.

    BTW… Any word on the ratings so far for the “2nd season”?

    When does your plane leave for Virginia tomorrow? Are you working at all?

    If there is anything I can do for you let me know.

  184. Madonna said

    Lady A is in Fresno. That’s where I mailed Kyle’s card.

  185. Danae said

    I am working until 2 tomorrow. My plane takes off at 4:30.

  186. Arrowyn said

    I’m not as nice as Gypsy — GOD HELP KYLE IF PRTFVR GETS AHOLD OF HIS EMAIL ADDRESS!!! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. πŸ™‚

  187. Danae said

    I seriously don’t think it would be a good idea to email him or anything. Seeing as he avoids the internet it would most likely be unwelcome.

  188. cdnfreyja said

    Now that our internet connection is back up and working,

    Arrowyn – you’re welcome, although I had nothing to do with it. If I had that much power, I could use it in fantastic ways. Work is an example. πŸ˜‰

    Madonna – always count on you to bring smiles to the group with your links!

    Anne – I think I’m the only one who would actually enjoy reading the subtitles. *sigh* Guess I just need to hop over the the National Library for the Danish film at the EU Film Festival, I guess.

    prtfvt – very glad to hear that Henry is on the mend! Pets can do some very strange things sometimes … as I think about the family cats and what they’ve managed to do …

  189. Arrowyn said

    lwildstar, please take care in that office of yours.

    Dizey, much love. Come back soon.

  190. Anne said

    “I worry about so many Hens in one room watching this episode together!”

    Me too!

    I think you should probably distribute earplugs to everybody within a one mile radius πŸ˜‰

    Your Henry Bird soundlslike a survivor – but then, he does have a good role model.

  191. Danae said

    Time to go home. Chat atcha tomorrow. Ciao!

  192. Himmiefan said

    Well, if we did get our hands on his real e-mail address, none of us would bother him, but we would do a lot of girly swooning and slobbering all over it. Just a fact.

  193. rifkind said

    Glad to hear that our little bird pulled through. I was so worried that he was going to go into shock and die last night. I’m so glad that his little leg is probably going to be saved. If this had happened while you were gone, he probably would have died.
    {{{ HUGS }}} to the great parrot Mama!

  194. rifkind said

    I sent you an email.

  195. msgypsy said

    I need to crow! We had a FEMA audit today. This was not just any audit. This was an audit of all the emergency aid we’ve provided on FEMA’s dime since 2004. Every scrap of backup, every cancelled check, every letter from a landlord, EVERYTHING. (FEMA is also involved in aid to the homeless, which is what we do here, among other things.) We passed with flying, and I mean FLYING colors! The auditor even said we were a pleasure to audit. Everything she needed was right at hand and well organized. And she’s going to be putting THAT in her report.

    WaHOOOOOOO! I’m not the only one who was involved in it but I’m proud anyway!

  196. elizabeth said

    Have any of you seen the second clip from episode 3? I just caught it on Lifetime and Mike gets shot! Oh – my – goodness!!

  197. elizabeth said

    Yea! msgypsy!! That is awesome news. We get audited for ISO certification and it is the same deal; everything has to be documented, so I know what an achievement this is for you and your team.

  198. Margaret said

    Scribble: Thanks for keeping us in the loop. If I were you I’d frame that email. You have it in writing, and his email too. What a lucky girl you are.

    Do you have any idea when the drop dead date on the actors’ contracts are? Or when Lifetime has to make a decision so they could film episodes in enough time. I’d like to know when I can stop writing postcards to Lifetime, lol. Have to say that half of us would probably kill for your job just for the perks involved. lol.

    Had I refreshed before I posted I wouldn’t have put my stop it rant up over there.

    MAGS – ALL the posts have been removed by LTKaren

  201. elizabeth said

    I’m just glad LT Karen stepped in. It was getting way out of control over there.

  202. Margaret said

    It used to be fun. Can you imagine what Tanya had to be thinking wading through all that garbage before they removed it. I’m glad they finally stepped in. It wasn’t pretty and it was getting old.

  203. lwildstar said

    whoo MsG! thats great! We have what they call PAR audits every 6 months where they go through our files and make sure we are documenting every call and email regarding change requests – we’ve passed every year since it sarted in 1986? and it still makes me nervous that they are going to come to me and ask for something…….

  204. Arrowyn said

    Congratulations, Gypsy! I somewhat know how you feel because the auditing portion of the accounting firm where I work is reviewed on a regular basis by peers and national professionals and the resultant reports are always extremely favorable. We also had to provide every “paperclip” we used. It’s a real proud feeling to be part of a company that does such a good job. And you should be doubly proud of your part in it! In addition, this was the government that was judging you, and they can be harsh. Woo Hoo!

  205. Arrowyn said

    Gypsy, my vote is yes for the Portland gang to get together. Friday evening/night or this weekend?

  206. Margaret said

    Change of subject ladies: As I said, I may need bail money this coming week so here goes. I have bought some Avery 27881 (use template 8371) Matte White Business Cards. I created a Save Blood Ties Business card, with the return address and email address to Lifetime on the reverse side. If any of you want the template to use, let me know and I’ll email it to you. I’m off for the next two days so I will be sneaking through the Barnes and Nobel and Books A Million and nonchalantly sticking them in Tanya’s and others in the supernatural section. I’m thinking you could leave them with your tip at a restaurant. Can anyone here say obsessed? I’m know, I’m over the edge, at least that’s what they tell me at work.

  207. lwildstar said

    Mags – you are just too funny!….but I wonder hummm – I could print up little things like that and leave them in the seat when I get off the bus or train…..? hummmmmm….people always pick up small pieces of paper to see if they are bus passes someone has dropped…..
    ok the obsession is spreading!

    I was telling Robin about this weeks episode – she told me she is gong to lock her hubby in the bathroom so she can watch undisturbed! LOL! I wouldn’t put it past her! she managed to watch Norman on line the other day……and now shes hooked!

  208. lwildstar said

    geezez I can’t type that is to be “going to lock her husband in the bathroom” I think the antihistamines are kicking in – I’m getting sleepy…..

  209. prtfvr said

    Ok. Since I think you guys are taking the getting Kyle’s email address a little too seriously, I feel compelled to post the following response:

    1. I was kidding (not that I wouldn’t take it if I got it.) Do you really think I’m deluded enough to think that Scribble would break Kyle’s trust and give me his personal email address?

    2. What kind of reputation do I have that the mere idea of me having his email address strike terror in everyone’s heart.

    3. I think…yeah, I KNOW I’m truly offended by the response my random comment made.

    There aren’t going to be smiley faces in this post because I’m really hurt. I didn’t think I was THAT big an asshole that I couldn’t be trusted to act like an adult if I met or spoke with Kyle.

    I’m off to sulk now.

    an open letter from PAUL MCCONVEY, PRODUCER has been posted on the message board at LT encouraging our efforts

    Congratulations Ms Gypsy!!

  212. Margaret said

    That letter seems to be the old one. Besides it has Daniels and Wong’s Titles wrong which I’ll correct over there since someone corrected me.

  213. lwildstar said

    I thought that might be the case… thanks for checking Mags….

  214. cdnfreyja said

    Hi ladies,

    I’ll check back tomorrow. The stress and lack of sleep is catching up to me, at least physically. Man, it is stressful trying to work behind the scenes to keep the organization going. But, the efforts that I and one of my colleagues have been devoting to this since last week have resulted in the office being kept open an extra week. Hopefully the powers that be will get their act together and do something constructive before November 2nd.

    Talk to you tomorrow!

  215. msgypsy said

    Oh, prtfvr, I’m really sorry. I was teasing. I know you’d never do anything stupid like that. You’re far to intelligent a person to even think about it. But you do play a good weirdo and I love teasing that persona…

    I need to get curled up under the blankets in a few moments (and it’s only the fifth inning!) but wanted to be sure I told you this before I left. (I’ll probably be back later but for now I think that bed and pillow and comforter sound quite lovely.)

  216. prtfvr said

    It just hurt my feelings that any of you might think I’m a dumb-ass. Kyle’s my precious angel, I wouldn’t want to scare him like that!

    Thank you though. πŸ™‚

  217. Claire said

    Hey my lovelies…To all of you with friends and family in Cali…Blessings and good thoughts going out to you!
    Ms.G congrats!
    Anne and Scribbles…Thank you so much for all the information you provide us…Kyles email eh….hehheheheh…aw damn you know I’m just kidding! not that I would turn it down if offered..I’d probably just stare at it all day long like a dumb ass!
    Anne…I can’t wait to see pics from missing!!!!!
    Prtfvr! I’m so glad that asshole Henry is Ok..I was so worried about him and you!
    Didn’t you tell him African Greys are like vamps? territorial and like to bite!
    Danae…sing with me…’re only a day away!
    LOL!!! I know I can be cheesy at times!
    Dizey girl!Je t’aime ma soeur, j’espΓ¨re que vous Γͺtes bien, et encore Γ  venir visiter avec moi.XOXOXO

    I don’t have a laptop,but we can all squeeze into my bedroom and blog at you all!! I will make sure there is plenty of evidence..I have a secret weapon…that can take 100 pics before anyone notices!
    God,I wish all of you were coming!
    Anyway heading over to check emails
    I love yas..Je’taime …sweet dreams

  218. Anzia said

    Scribble- You’re still one of the luckiest people alive! He can call me honey in ANY form of communication ANY DAY! Wow!

    Prtmama- I’m happy that it can be saved. Now i must confess I only skimmed so if it’s changed I didn’t catch it and i’m sorry. But i am glad that there is/was hope. ^_^ I love ya!

    Rif- work is BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING. **BUT** if ANYONE needs to know the particulars on how to get on a General Contractor’s bid list (FAST) I can tell ya. It’s AMAZING the things you can pick up…when people repeat them a MILLION BLOODY F*CKING times a day. GAHD. Have I mentioned my TOTALY HATRED…okay TOTAL AND COMPLETE DISLIKE for GC’s? UGH! Anyway…other than that it’s fine. I get trained on data entry tomorrow. Which should *ONLY* take an hour. ^_^ Which means i might have SOME ear function when I get off tomorrow (NOT LIKE THAT! Naughty girls!). I also found out two things this week. 1) I’ll definitely be employed there until the end of the year & 2) My boss’ boss is “worried” about my work b/c the phone isn’t always to my ear. in his words “That thing should be glued to her head.” Which ROYALLY pissed me off. Now I know ya’ll have never seen me mad…but it is NOT scary. He walked up behind me later the day I found this out and I wanted to beat him over the head w/my phone. Just make him see reason. But…alas…i’m not a maniac yet…

    Okay, off to bed ’cause 6:30 comes early and…well… i do have to have SOME brain function

  219. Anne said

    “an open letter from PAUL MCCONVEY, PRODUCER has been posted on the message board at LT encouraging our efforts”

    Yes, it’s the old letter from July that was on both BloodTiesCentral and Bloodlines and that we were asked to take down later on.

    Old news, not going to list it again. All info for supporting Blood Ties is on BTC and Bloodllines already.

    Glad the cleaned up Tanya’s blog.

    Claire – Kyle is SO the bad rich kid in Missing!
    Sneering and convinced he can’t be touched and that he’s cleverer than anyone else …

    Good wishes to Henry the ornery parrot and to everyone in California.
    Since the internet I have gotten even more worried, because often I now know someone personally affected by these catastrophes.
    Be safe everyone.

    Kyle and Christina – move back to Toronto!
    Or Vancouver if you miss the beach.

  220. Arrowyn said

    Prtfvr —

    Aw, honey (I know I’m not Kyle, but that’s going to have to suffice). ((((HUGS)))) I love your quick and sharp wit more than I can express and you can dish it out better than anybody I know. However, because of that, sometimes I forget how I might β€œsound” when I tease you. And I WAS teasing you. I wouldn’t intentionally hurt you for ANYTHING! I’m so sorry. You’re not deluded, you’re not a dumb ass, and you’re not an asshole. Instead, you’re a smart, capable woman with a crusty exterior and a big, ol’ soft center. Yeah, I know you’re going to hate my saying that last bit. Please accept my sincere apologies for hurting you in ANY way. :*(

  221. prtfvr said

    I’m going to have to have hurt feelings more often. You and gypsy said the nicest things. I’m just used to everyone putting the smilies in so without them it looked dead serious.

    BTW, I DO have a big, ol’ soft center. After three kids it’s no wonder!

    Thank you.


  222. Anzia said

    prtmama- you forgot an adjective. You have a big ol’ HUGGABLE (sp?) soft center! ^_^

    Good morning all,

    Geez, what’s with the tempers? Must be a full moon or something. ;-). Been pulling the old ostrich routine myself. Lalalalalala (covers ears & eyes) I can’t hear you.

    Prtfvr — I’m so glad little Henry is going to recover.

    Hi Z & Rif, How have you guys been? Long time no chat. Rif did you buy that house yet?

    Alright everyone, Make sure you get your entries in for the Halloween contest by 4:30 pm ET today. That means you girls that are going to Claire’s get them posted before you go and PLEASE, everyone have a safe trip.

    Don’t forget to take time out of you partying around Noon on Friday to check the blog for the winner.

    …and take pictures. Lot’s and lot’s of pictures! I’m living vicariously though all of you.


  225. Claire said

    Morning Darlins!!!!!!!

    Oh man…I sooo want to see missing!!! I love it when Kyle is bad!!!!
    Annalaise..never fear..lots of pictures will be taken..especially of bird lady!
    you hear that Prtfvr? πŸ˜‰’s still pouring rain here!!!!! and I have tons to do before Danae gets catch yas later!

  226. Margaret said

    I don’t watch Missing so can anyone tell me if it’s going to be rerun or where I could find the episode with Kyle in it?

  227. Himmiefan said

    Hey, wait!! I thought every, single comment we made about the e-mail address was a joke! Very tongue in cheek! I didn’t for a minute think anyone was serious. I mean really. We’re all so, how should I say this, responsible and reasonable! No wackos here!

  228. Himmiefan said

    Hello Ms. Z! I was just thinking about you last night, wondering where you had gotten off to. Yes, there is some strange link between doing dishes and thinking about Kyle’s fans. πŸ™‚

  229. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all!!!

    I’m completely jealous of all of you who are setting off to Claire’s for the weekend. I would love to have someone to watch BT with on Friday nights. I did however turn a co-worker on to the show yesterday. We were talking about my other Friday night show (Friday Night Lights) and she was giving me a hard time about my pictures I have up of Taylor Kitsch. Then she asked who Kyle was and I told her all about our Henry. I don’t know why I didn’t think of her earlier, I knew she was into Vamps, even named her baby after one of Anne Rice’s characters. Anyway, she will be tuning in tomorrow night to check it out.

  230. Margaret said

    Anne: Do you know what the episode name is of the Missing episode that Kyle is in?

  231. Danae said

    Buongiorno Bellas. This is all I can do today so that I can leave at 2 to hop on a plane to Claire’s.

    Prtfvr-I am sorry about the email address thing. I didn’t mean to make it sound like you would actually use it.

    See ya later Claire. I also loooooove Hawaiian pizza.

  232. prtfvr said

    I was SO not having a sense of humor yesterday. I really needed the smiley guides. I know better too. I’m sorry about that.

    On the positive side, you know that I’m not going to sit around being angry and not tell anyone. Not to mention that I can get over things fairly quickly. So there’s that.

    Good Morning My SWEET (WICKED AWESOME) Sista’s O’ Blood!

    All is fine, just a bit on the blue side past few days or so, won’t be able to make the trip and that in and of itself **SUCKS**!! so I’ve been licking my wounds in the corner ya’ know being a baby 😦 also the *PMS Demon’s* been here and bugging the living crap out of me. The Moon last night through my dad’s telescope was Magnifique!!! I am a moon child so what can I say and it’s in the 60’s here so my time of year πŸ˜‰ Thanks for all your concern I was just being selfish. For the girls able to be at Claire Belle’s(My triplet once removed) there will be some good treats there tomorrow, ENJOY!!


    My other triplet sista’ glad Baby Henry or is it Baby Norman πŸ˜‰ is doing better. They’re strong little buggers huh? Talk about being in the wrong place/cage at the wrong time. Oh and as far as the *email* thingy I would only be pissed at you if you didn;t take me along for the ride πŸ˜€ I’ll be your partner in crime and I’ll sit next to ya’ in the jail cell πŸ˜€ That’s cuz’ I love YA! and of course what friends do for friends πŸ˜‰

  236. Himmiefan said

    Hey Ms. Dizey! Glad to hear from you! Now, if Tango and some of the others would just check back in and let us know they’re alive.

    Madonna – a certain song is stuck in my head, and it’s all your fault!! πŸ™‚

  237. elizabeth said

    It is so exciting that some of you are going to be able to get together! I say that with all sincerity, but with a slight pout. I would love to be there with all of you. I know I am greedy because I have the Portland gang that I adore and can get together with. Maybe next year. Anyway, for any of you travelling over the next few days – be safe. Give everyone ((((((hugs)))))) from me when you see each other. I can’t wait to see all the pictures! πŸ™‚

  241. cdnfreyja said

    Hey Dizey! Glad to see you back!

  242. Madonna said

    Dizey I too am glad you’re back. I missed ya. You’re not selfish either. Sometimes you just need to take a break from something once in a while.

    I’m bummed that you are not going to be able to make the trip. I’ll be taking you as well as all the other girls along with me in spirit.

    Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.

    Trust me on this. Your singing can’t possibly be any worse than mine. I would SO make the television auditions for American Idol. (Not in a good way though.)

    I just can’t wrap my head around this costume contest. What I have is awful but here it is anyway.

    The inspiration….. We all know that Vicki wants both Henry and Mike so my idea comes from that. Vicki would go as a container of chip dip and Mike and Henry would both accompany her as identical bags of Lays Potato chips. You know…. She can’t have just one.

  243. Madonna said

    The blog ate my post. It must be hungry.

  244. lwildstar said

    sorry I haven’t been around – but things are very tense here at work – will check in with you later –

    Awww Diz! we’re going to miss you! I’ll send you an email when I get home….

  245. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Thanx kidz πŸ˜‰ ya’ll are great and that’s why it’s so agonizing. I feel like by not being there I’m missing everything and I’m odd man out. I hate feeling…………..oh hell jealous ewwwwwwwwwww man what a baby I am ! Oh well I’ll have Henry to dry my tears and try and teach me how to move passed the jealousy, oh wait he’s 480 yrs old and hasn’t mastered that yet either. Well misery loves company and I’ll take his company everyday and twice on Sunday πŸ˜‰ 😎

  246. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Madonna I scooped your post out of the *Chum* bucket πŸ˜‰ I will channel myself there.

    Thanks for reaching in there Dizey. I know it’s gross.

    Look at it this way….. There’s always Kyle in March.

    Hey ya’ know that’s true , silver lining Thanx!

  249. Margaret said

    Diz: You’re going to have to share Henry with me too as I’m not going either. I’ll take Cree’s portion of Henry since she’s probably too tired for working too hard. lol. Can you come to Florida in March?

  250. Madonna said

    Can anyone ever be too tired for Henry?

  251. Annalaise duChat said

    Hi Dizey!!!! — Missed you. Maybe you and I can drown our sorrows together. **sigh** Got any of the Guinness still floating around? Maybe we can have our own blog party while the rest of them are at Claire’s. Kyle, me & Dizey are partying Friday Night , come and join us! Oh wait a minute…stupid football game Friday night@##$%$##$%%. I will be so glad when football season is over.

    Oh, and guess what? I get to go on a double date Saturday Night with my husband and my daughter and her NEW boyfriend. They want to go see “Thirty Days of Night.” You love vampires right Mom? You can come with us! I’m not really looking forward to it. I’d rather stay home and watch Henry & Mick, and write about Kieron.

    Madonna — It’s not that I sing so terribly, It’s just that I never shut up! My family teases me that I know all the words to every song that’s ever been written, and I’m not shy about belting out a tune whenever the situation warrants it. LOL.

  252. prtfvr said

    No one’s too tired for Henry!

    “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!” The Heart of Fire episode, I couldn’t stop thinking that every time there was a flash back scene. I annoyed myself! But I couldn’t stop. Sad, sad little monkey that I am.

  253. Anne said


    Kyle’s episode of 1-800 Missing is 3×07, (#43 overall), “Last Night”.
    I was pretty worried I’d miss recording it, so I put it in my calendar about a month in advance, hoping I’d get the right episode. I had planned on recording a few days early but for got – luckily I had figured right – phew!

    Someone posted in Kyle’s guestbook that “I Was a Sixth Grade Alien” is airing in Canada, but didn’t mention a station. I wold love to get my hands on a couple of his episodes! I’ve seen a few pictures online, and I’d have to say that Kyle grew up nice.

    Have a great visit and remember to distribute earplugs πŸ˜‰
    And fliers!

  254. DIZEY1 :-) said

    *Laise* I’ll pick up some of that great Irish brew and consume me a few πŸ˜‰ I’ll raise a mug to ya’ also ! Good luck on the double date w/my BFF Mel too cool 😎 I have to say I like me some Mick also, I like vamps in many flavors as it seems πŸ˜‰ YUMMMM to all those *Suckers* πŸ˜›

    And NO person in their right mind would pass on Henry due to *Tiredness* HA!! Not me and I CLEARLY would not fall asleep on him either he’d keep me up πŸ˜‰

  255. Madonna said

    Do you all think we should send out a reminder email to everyone about Ms. Gypsy’s Halloween Party?

  256. Annalaise duChat said

    I like a lot of vamp flavors too but not the kind in Thirty Days of Night. EEEVVVVIIILLL!EEEWWWee

  257. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna — It probably wouldn’t hurt.

  258. cdnfreyja said

    Madonna said: “Ummm….. Margaret, Can anyone ever be too tired for Henry?”

    Dizey said: “And NO person in their right mind would pass on Henry due to *Tiredness*”

    Well ladies, I distinctly remember posting last week that the boys were going to have to occupy themselves elsewhere due to the stress caused by the insanity at work. I didn’t say tired – I can work around that ANY time! (and besides, what would the boss do right now if I showed up late for work because of … ummm … a late night? Fire me? I know, I know, that shouldn’t be funny but given the circumstances …)

  259. Madonna said

    Do you want to take that one or should I after I get back from Claire’s?

    Oh, and in your post I saw that you said NEW boyfriend. Is she seeing someone other than who she went to homecoming with?

  260. Margaret said

    Just looking out for Cree. Didn’t want her to get over exhausted. lol

  261. Annalaise duChat said

    Madonna — Oh hell, I’m going to be totally honest here, I must have missed the post on that one. I’m clueless. So yes, you better pass along the info.LOL

    Yes this is a different boy than she went to homecoming with. The homecoming thing was pretty much just to have someone to go to the dance with for both of them. They’re still friends. Mel fixed Ryan up with one of her girlfriends that really liked him. The new boy’s name is Doug. He’s real cute (kinda looks like Harry Potter) and this time they really like each other. Mom is sitting here at work freaking out because he lives within walking distance and there is no school today so they are both home alone.

  262. msgypsy said

    Seriously, do you think “You are my Sunshine” is appropriate for Henry? Sheesh!

    Okay Prtfvr, now I have to scream, “No! Not the comfy chair!”

    I have a very yummy lunch and will be concentrating on that (and some work) for a while…

  263. Madonna said

    UH OH! So, who are you more worried about Melanie or Doug?

    Ms. Gypsy is hosting a Halloween blog Party for us all. Kind of like Kyle’s and Claire’s b’day party. Everyone needs to pick out a costume and all of that.

  264. Madonna said

    Well, he’s my sunshine Ms. Gypsy.

  265. Margaret said

    So do we show up at the blog and tell everyone what we’re wearing on Halloween.

    Anne: Hate to sound dense as I never really watched Missing all that much but weren’t they cancelled over here which would mean we’d have to buy the dvd, but has it even gone to a dvd yet?

  266. Madonna said

    You could probably research costumes for Halloween online and post a picture of what you pick out.

  267. Annalaise duChat said

    How in the heck did I miss that? Sound like fun! What time does it start?

    I’m not worried. Who Me? He’s 16 and drives. She’s 15 going on 25. No I’m not worried!

  268. prtfvr said

    Ok, wait a minute. I can’t possibly have skimmed so much that I don’t know we’re having a blog party? Or is this the get together that Claire was talking about where we all share a computer to chat tomorrow night?

    Is this truly a blog party or a chat party at Hen’s?

  269. Madonna said

    I don’t know the times…. I guess we’ll have to leave that up to Ms. Gypsy.

  270. prtfvr said

    Does anyone going to Claire’s tomorrow night have an S video cable? I’m not sure that I do. I downloaded 5:55 from iTunes so we can watch commercial free tomorrow night if you’d like.

  271. Madonna said

    A couple of weeks ago I asked Ms. Gypsy about having a virtual Halloween party on the blog. She said it was a go and was going to book the virtual party room. I’m guessing it’ll be next Wednesday.

  272. Margaret said

    Will it be a the Hen House after the show is off?

  273. Annalaise duChat said

    Thank goodness I’m not the only clueless person here. I some times skim through the post too but I usually try to get the gist of all of them. I was afraid I missed an emailed invitation or something.

    Ms. gypsy please repost the invite. Thanks!

  274. cdnfreyja said

    prtfvr and Annalaise, I missed it too!

  275. msgypsy said

    Gina’s in an upcoming flick (maybe for TV; I didn’t read all the way through) with a heckuva cast.

    THERE’S A BLOG HALLOWEEN PARTY! It’ll be next Wednesday, all day. I’ll post the party room on Tuesday. You’re all invited. Come in costume. Or at least bring yummies. Someone ought to invite Tanya, but I doubt she’ll show up like she did for Kyle/Claire’s party. Someone should invite Kyle’s mother. Okay, maybe not.

    The monkey is NOT — I repeat, NOT — invited. They’ve doubled the damage deposit on the virtual party room because of that darn simian.

    Okay, someone just made a gorgeous calendar using one of my favorite characters from “Torchwood” and posted it online. I’m not saying we should try to eclipse Kaleidoscope’s rights or anything but if there’s no upcoming “Blood Ties” calendar, I really want to try to make one for myself. I can do it in Word, I think. I’ll see what transpires between now and mid-November and if it looks like I can do it without offending anyone, I will just have to do this myself and post it somewhere. (If anyone who knows the law in the US — sorry, Frejya, but since I’m in the US that’s the law I have to worry about — please let me know if I’m talking about doing a Real Bad Thing or not.)

  276. cdnfreyja said

    gypsy, basically you’re good to go if you are using images for personal use (don’t go off the deep end with your thoughts, ladies) and/or you are not making money off it. If you make a gift or share it for free, you are fine.

  277. Annalaise duChat said

    Oh boy I get to come up with a virtual Halloween Costume! I’m so excited!

    Oh and since I haven’t gotten any more contest submissions here’s some more of mine: (inelligible for a prize of course)

    Henry as Dr. Frank- n-furter, Vickie as Magenta, and Mike as Riff Raff from Rocky Horror Picture Show

    Henry as Neo, Vickie as Trinity, and Mike as Morpheus from The Matrix

    Mike as Shrek, Vickie as Princess Fiona, and Henry as Donkey

    Henry as Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, Mike as The Monster and Vicki as Frau Blucher

    Henry as Forrest Gump, Vicki as Jenny Curran, and Mike as Lt. Dan Taylor

    Henry as Count Chocula, Vicki as the Trix Rabbit, and Mike as The Lucky Charms Lepruchan

  278. Madonna said

    OK Annalaise, I LOVE the Count Chocula one. LOVE IT!!!!

  279. msgypsy said

    “Mike as Shrek, Vickie as Princess Fiona, and Henry as Donkey”

    In this Hen-dense community, are you SURE that’s the distribution you want to go with?

    Me, I’m fine with it…

    Gotta get back to work, lovies. More later.

  280. Annalaise duChat said

    Yea, I thought I’d throw one in there for the Minxes. Also there’s just no way I can wrap my mind around Henry as a green nose-picking ogre. Sorry.

  281. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Laise,

    Frau Blucher I don’t see Vicki as her , but I could see her as Helga (I think) Terri Garr’s part *What Knocker’s * / *Why thank you Doctor* One of my all time favorite movies. Oh and it’s Froederick Fronkensteen πŸ˜‰ Egor/ Igor wasn’t the hump on the other side. Trivial trivia while at the show watching said movie *Young Frankenstein* *Aerosmith* left and went and wrote and recorded *Walk this Way* Thank you Marty Feldman and Mel Brooks (GENIUS) ! More useless trivia πŸ˜€

  282. Annalaise duChat said

    I just spelled it the way it was spelled on IMDB. all the while pronouncing it Froederick Fronkensteen. As for the Frau Blucher I loved that character and was after the unusual! Thanks for the Aerosmith info. I didn’t know that!

  283. DIZEY1 :-) said

    I gotcha’ on the Froederick front I sooooo love this flick still as funny as the first time I watched. Mel Brooks films have such great life spans don’t you think? I adored Marty Feldman and Cloris Leachman WAS Frau Blucher the horses I laugh my ass off every time they winnied (sp) .

  284. Margaret said

    Ms. Gypsy: Is the party here or at the Henry House. You might want to personally extend the invite to Tanya since it’s your blog, don’t you think?

  285. Annalaise duChat said

    It’s still one of my all time favorites. I agree! My husband loves it too. We try to watch it any time it’s broadcast. Rocky Horror Picture Show is another on of those comedy classics as well. Can you see Henry dressed as Dr. Frank-n-furtur? ROTFLMAO. Not a pretty site.

    Got to go home now. Chat at cha a little later. TTFN

  286. Hey guys! I’m alive! The california fires are way south of here and we are in no danger whatsoever. However the air quality state wide has suffered and I’ve been having a hard time with that.

    Can someone email me kind of a catch up? I’ve been engrossed with several other things and haven’t had the time to read the blog. I have seen the emails with the other drama and all I can do is shake my head. It was only a matter of time.

    Any word about Kyle’s present yet? It’s killing me to think that he may never see it!

  287. laurel said

    Hey Lady A! Glad to see you dear! I haven’t seen you since the Pal-talk chat (and it was really nice to get to see you btw). πŸ™‚
    Things here have been kind of slow yet crazy. Sick people, jobs being lost, injured bird, missing bloggers…. Standard drama for us. But we are still here and now planning a blog party on Halloween! So, welcome home!

    I finally saw a commercial for Blood Ties on Lifetime today. It was actually about winning a set of books signed by Tanya for entering and winning a costume contest on Lifetime’s site. I haven’t read the details but I think you gals going to Claires had better get some good pics to send in for the contest.

    Dizey – I am so sorry you don’t get to go to Claire’s I would love to chat with you Friday night even if the rest are busy. I’ll watch 5:55 on my iPod ahead of the showing here so that we can talk about it. Would that help? A little?
    Also, I will need to get your mailing address pretty soon so that I can send you a little something. Gotta take care of my sisters. Especially the other Moon-child types!
    Gypsy – I’ll offer to sing something other than “You are my Sunshine” if you want music for the party. Just make sure you give us some good choice on the jukebox if you intend to provide Kareoke. (now how the heck do I spell that? It doesn’t look right. sigh). I am singing “Captain Signi Mallory” right now. I figure you are the only other person here who would know that one. hehe

  288. prtfvr said

    I’ve already watched 5:55. Yes, at work! That’s how impatient I am!! MUHAHAHAHA!

  289. prtfvr said

    Lady A!! Glad to see you!!

  290. Cree said

    Dizey: Welcome back! You were missed. And don’t worry, you are not the odd man out. I originally thought I was going to be able to go too, but then I couldn’t find another doctor to cover my hospital for this weekend, so I am not able to go either. 😦

    Margaret said:
    >>I’ll take Cree’s portion of Henry since she’s probably too tired for working too hard.

    Umm……excuse me??!!! I don’t think so lady! Sheesh, I can’t blog for a few days and you are already trying to steal my Henry from me? Sorry, NO SHARSIES missy!! πŸ˜‰ LOL. And you try to disguise it as being concerned about me getting over exhausted? Nice try, but I’m not dumb enough to fall for that one! πŸ™‚ There’s always time for Henry in my life, so don’t you worry.

    And to all those who missed the Halloween party invite, don’t worry, I didn’t see it either (maybe it was all in Madonna’s head?) πŸ˜‰ And what’s up with Crash not being able to come? He was so much fun at the last one! I love that little monkey!!

    Okay, my techs are yelling at me because I have patients waiting and I won’t get off the computer! Gotta go. To all the girls going to Claire’s…..have a great time! I am so jealous!!

  291. Margaret said

    Cree: I knew if anything would draw you out the thought of losing any time with our Hottie Henry, that would do it. ROFL Geez, just trying to make sure you didn’t get too tired and you don’t even appreciate it. lol. Oh well, if he’s been able to last 480 years I’m sure he’ll be able to last a few more nights.

  292. Margaret said

    Lady A: Not to worry. Kyle got the package and told Scribble that he loved it. I think she was hoping that he would come and thank us for it but so far he’s as scarce as his alter ego, Henry.

  293. Margaret said

    So is the monkey coming to the party and what will he be dressed as?

  294. Cree said

    Mags: You know me all too well. LOL

  295. Whew!! I’ve been chewing my nails off worrying about that damned box! lol

  296. Cree said

    Ms. Gypsy said Crash wasn’t invitied, but I’m going to try and sneak him in anyway………shhh….don’t tell her. πŸ˜‰

  297. sneak him in under your skirt!

  298. Cree said

    I could just hear the comments now………Is that a monkey in your pants, or are you just happy to see me? LOL

  299. Cree said

    Oh, I forgot to mention earlier….prtfvr……..glad birdie Henry is okay. I am surprised at how cheap your vet is. I don’t do birds, but I know if that was a dog or cat, that bill would have easily been over $1,000 for everything he had to have done!

  300. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Lady A, Sooo glad you’re safe out in Cali ! No worries you shipped well ma’am and now the ball’s in his court. I wonder how Cali like’s her Vamp toy it looked so darned cute ! Oh and I wonder has he baked the baby any cookies yet?? DUDE! let us know how Cali liked the presents at least πŸ˜‰

    Cree, My sweet how are you ? Yep I was feeling pretty sucky and sorry for myself but it’s starting to be not quite so painful πŸ˜‰ I want Crash there too what’s a Halloween Party w/out a monkey?

    Se ya’ll later I’m outa hea !

  301. Cree said

    Dizey: I know how you feel. I felt the same way when I found out for sure that I couldn’t go. And then I felt even worse because Mags and I were going to fly together to Claire’s and once I said I couldn’t go, she said she wasn’t going to go either, so I felt responsible for that as well. But I eventually got over it…..well I guess I should say I was over it, until this week when everyone started talking about it again, now I’m sad all over again thinking about what I’ll be missing out on. Especially with that particular episode being aired tomorrow night. 😦 At least we have each other, right?

    OK, so its settled, we’ll smuggle Crash into the party, and Ms. Gypsy will never know…..heeheehee πŸ˜‰ You’re right, it wouln’t be much of a party without a monkey!

  302. laurel said

    Somebody owes me a new keyboard! Is that a monkey in you pants….
    Good thing I was just drinking water. I really hate those latte sinus washes!

    I was thinking about making a quick costume for sneaking Crash into the party.
    (shhhhh. Don’t tell Gypsy! I live close enough to get in real trouble with her)
    Besides, I helped with clean-up last time and I don’t really think it was the monkey’s fault. He was just the convenient scape-goat. And before you even consider the possibility… NO GOAT!
    He would make a really cute little Robin Hood. Green cap with a feather in it, toy bow and arrow, little vest and trews, tall boots? I have the whole weekend, let me know what you think.

    Just remember – Rum mellows him out but Tequila makes him crazy.

  303. Arrowyn said

    I haven’t had a chance to catch up reading the blog yet, but I wanted to say “safe trip” to all who are going (or who have gone already) to Claire’s. I’m so envious! You’ve probably gotten the message by now — pictures, pictures, pictures! I don’t have to say “have fun”, do I.

    Psssst! Anybody who will be there — please give Prtfvr a big “I’m sorry” hug for me. Sshhhh! Don’t let her know!

  304. Margaret said

    Sounds like a good motto for something doesn’t it: Is that a monkey in your pants or are you just happy to see me? Glad I wasn’t drinking, my keyboard is still dry.. Just think, wouldn’t that be a great line for Vicki, just have to figure how they’d work it in.

  305. Margaret said

    I wish I could have gone to Claires but its all good. I can take the money I would have spent and spend it on photos/autographs for something thats almost in my own backyard, and certainly in Crees. So, stop feeling bad Cree, its all good.

  306. Margaret said

    Diz: Maybe his girlfriend baked some cookies for Cali. Ever now and then we need to come back to the real world.

  307. Cree said

    Laurel: Oooh, a goat! Hmm……that could be interesting! Dressing up Crash like Robin Hood would be cute. I had thought about a pirate like in Pirates of the Carribean. So what are we dressing the goat up as? πŸ˜‰ Or maybe…….we could have Crash dress up like a cowboy and the goat dress up like a horse and Crash could ride the goat around the party (and NO, prtfvr, I don’t mean like THAT!)

  308. Cree said

    I can’t help it Mags. I do feel responsible for you not being able to go either. That’s just how I am.

    And what’s so great about living in the real world, anyway? Our little imaginary one we have created is working just fine for most of us I think. I know it is for me, but then my fantasies are mainly about Henry, not Kyle πŸ™‚

  309. Claire said

    Hey my lovelies!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sweet sista! you have no idea how sad I am….:(
    I’ll miss you terribly! I’ll miss all of you not coming terribly!
    Nikki and Danae called a few minutes ago! They should be here any minute!!!!!!!
    Hey Bird lady…Can’t wait to throw a hug on ya!!!!!!!!

    All of you will be here in spirit!!!!!!!

    Love yas!

  310. I want video!!!! Pictures are great but video is better!

  311. Margaret said

    Take bunches of pictures. And Claire, since I can’t be there can you give Prtfvr a BIG HUG & A KISS for me. I miss her already. lol. Seriously, sorry that we couldn’t come but hopefully we’ll be discussing Henry for years to come, who knows, stranger things have happened. Geez, I’m sounding like Diz, good thing I’m staying behind, I ususally wear black glasses, not those rosy ones. lol.

  312. elizabeth said

    It is so cool that people are starting to arrive, Claire! I know you have to be excited. I can hear the squeals all the way on the West coast Have fun all of you. I know I can’t wait to hear about all your adventures together πŸ˜‰

  313. lwildstar said

    Laurel – please let me know when you get the box!

    I can’t wait for tomorrow! I ‘m leaving work early tomorrow and we get to wear jeans – we don’t get to wear jeans at work – not even on Fridays – but the weather has turned cold and nasty so the office manager decided to “treat” us!

    for those who got to watch 5:55 already _ I am so jealous!

  314. laurel said

    I repeat – NO GOAT! I just knew that would be a problem, and now I’ll really be in trouble with Gypsy. If I’m not careful she’s going to remember that I have a wordpress site and then she’ll decide to move the party to my place.
    Egad! I’d better go lock the doors.

    Claire – hug those girls for me, too. All of them, your own tribe included. πŸ™‚
    We are with you in spirirt (and maybe even with “spirits” in hand) I’ll raise a glass to you all tonight.

  315. laurel said

    lwildstar – no package as of today – I just went and picked up my mail and it was just cataloges and bills. 😦
    Maybe tomorrow! I’ll e-mail as soon as I get it!
    When do you leave for Claires?
    Prtfvr – how’s Henry doing? I hope you can get a more restful night’s sleep before you head off to party. Sounds like you’re going to need it.
    Cree and Margaret and Dizey – My heart goes out to you. Maybe we can figure a way to do something special for all of you. I have something for each of you already, actually.
    Danae – I tried to send you a package a couple of weeks ago and today got a notice that it was damaged and being returned to me. I’ll try again once it gets back. I suspect it must be bad or they would have sent it to you anyway. 😦
    Just think applesauce.
    Not pretty.
    I blame Norman.

  316. lwildstar said

    Laurel – I checked on line, and it left VA today – you should have it Saturday….

    Cree and Margaret and Dizey – wish you were going to be here this weekend!

  317. AlisaSG said

    if you have time between packing for the *party*, please check your email from 10/23/2007 (sent Oct 23, 2007 4:50 AM) from me.
    I can only keep it off the blogs if it is replied to via email.

    thank you.


    in the meantime, I haven’t been at a computer (for very long) since I wrote that, because of the Halloween *voodoo* bug that’s been going around regionally (which started before last weekend even got here, so coincidence in timing is just *coincidence*).

    Short of me ending up on an IV at the hospital for lack of food and water from the seriousness of the *thing*, on an allegorical scale, it seems I have been *exorcising* a wicked demon, which seemed to stop doing its worst at another weird, bizarre moment of timing yesterday (Ephesians 6:12= the story of my entire life before I even ever heard of Blood Ties).

    So, I missed whatever was posted eleswhere on the Lifetime site, including everything that LTKaren took into moderator’s control.

  318. prtfvr said

    Cree: I was surprised that the surgery was so cheap myself considering how little the bones that he was working on were. Sometimes I think he charges me less if he’s trying something he hasn’t done before. I trust him. I’ve been taking my birds to him for 10 years now.

    Henry’s still being boarded at the vets. He’s eating today and running around. In his spare time he’s chewing on his splint. I can’t imagine the attitude he must be giving everyone when they give him his medicine.

    I think you guys are obsessed with hugging me. Obsess about Henry, will ya?! πŸ˜‰

  319. Claire said

    HI my lovelies!!!
    Hi guys it’s danae here. I am already feeling loopy from the wine.

    Anyways..having..can’t wait for the rest of you ladies to get here!!!

    Enjoy the pic!

  320. lwildstar said

    Have a good night! you two beautiful ladies…..We’ll see you tomorrow!

  321. lol cute pic. Don’t get too crazy with the wine… I do not want to wake up to drunken emails.

  322. Freyja said

    Ladies, the site won’t let me log in tonight so the alter ego gets to make an appearance.

    Laurel – I learned quickly not to eat or drink anything while reading the comments here. I’m sure I would have fried a few keyboards already if I had.

    Cree and Lady A – welcome back! Lady A, glad that you are outside the danger zone.

    Claire and Danae – have a good night, and enjoy before the other ladies invade!

  323. msgypsy said

    Laurel, did someone mention a GOAT? I know I can trust you to keep my best interests (and damage deposit) in mind, right? You wouldn’t bring in a goat, would you? Or allow that DAMN MONKEY in?

    The party is on this blog. I’ve already started designing the topic post. Henry is getting quite upset about the possibility of a goat. Vicki, otoh, is already playing fast and loose with the damage deposit. And Mike? Don’t ask!

    Ah, my sweet potato fries smell done. Must get back to the kitchen. Bur before I leave, Portland gang, can we agree on a place to gather together tomorrow night? Or should we let Claire’s party have the limelight all to themselves?

  324. Margaret said

    Have fun ladies. Maybe some other time. I expect some of you to try to come to FLorida.

  325. AlisaSG said

    dear ALL, ——— important ———

    this is to inform everyone that I will no longer be posting to either this blog or the Lifetime web blogs under Tanya Huff’s personal topic entries. Unless someone declares otherwise, that’s the direction I am going with.

    I have been wrestling with this decision ever since Tanya’s topic on the
    STONE COLD ep (no coincidence of titles intended there). That’s basically when I’ve felt the *problems* actually started on both sides of these forum blogs.

    I honestly tried to believe there wasn’t a deeper situation back then, that might be encountered into the future; but alas, it has, and confirmed my intuition that I should have just backed off during those days instead of seeing if sharing my thoughts within the BT community would help much.


    Anyway, I do *not wish* anyone from whoever is blogging wherever — to feel that just because I have posted on both sites (Lifetime and ms.g’s), means that I speak for everyone here, especially in the personal aspects of life.

    As Margaret already stated before I posted this note,

    I know that I *only* speak for myself be it here or on Tanya’s blogs; and it’s just not fair for anyone reading elsewhere or here to put entire “blame-shifting” on ms.g’s site for anything I have personally said. I do not wish to be in the middle of someone else’s heated debate on personal issues.

    Seriously, I don’t understand how people in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s (or whatever) simply cannot get along (socially). Once we’re out of high school, (generically speaking) people should know better in how to get along. That’s one of my biggest pet peeves for the rest of this planet, and why our real world will most likely end up going to war against itself…. and unfortunately, it seems that sort of news will happen in the very nearby future.

    I think the best option is for me to just leave both sites, unless of course, there is a question being directed specifically to me. Even if that — If anyone prefers to email me, it will be more one on one, instead of by group.

    I did get sick over this week (for real– weather migraine morphed into nasty flu-bug where nothing would stay down… and I looked like a cat coughing up a fur-ball… multiply that scenario by about 15 times in less than a 14-hour time frame).

    perish the thought! I couldn’t help but wonder if anyone might be thinking ill thoughts about the fiascos from the weekend, I’d learned over the years NOT to even wish such ill things on anyone — lest it come back to bite the person wishing for it — “be careful what you wish for”

    ————- more to follow …
    (this is part 1 of 2)

    because of the length of this message — here is part 2 of 2

    Dear ALL, (continued) β€”β€”β€” important β€”β€”β€”

    this also means that I will most likely (probably) not go to MegaCon. If I go at all, it won’t be to join the BT groups there, as a group.

    I was looking forward to meeting some of you and sharing in those joys of what Kyle and Dylan have brought to us. But if any tensions have been produced from this weekend’s so-called massive cat-fighting, which I missed reading most of it, then it’s better for me to just leave things be and not become involved as much as I had been before last weekend.

    and 2 items–
    1) it seems the radio must have following our conversations on the Lifetime blogs and here, and possibly even put some sort of GPS tag on my own emails..! I’d laugh, but the very next morning (Monday morning), there were several guys (all males) discussing in jest about the overuse of Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra !! (in essence, they were defending what I was saying as *truth!* and one of them is a lawyer, so he’s seen dozens of cases where those details might be part of the problem.)

    They were also discussing about meeting people in person from getting to know them via the internet (omg!! were they referring to Claire’s party??!).

    Plus, another conversation came up about *hate* and animosities between rival groups!
    too freaky of a coincidence there, as well!

    and someone also got on the subject of sleep — or lack thereof. Coincidence of timing or not, umm, adding all of the conversations up within those few short hours, it was a bit freaky in wondering what *inspired* those conversations! They were also actually discussing someone else, but bringing up all of the other points, was a bit more than coincidental for my mind to behold..!


    2) I was reading someone discussing about true friendship being hogwash. Actually, it only works when all persons are–

    — in harmony and work together like a beautiful melody.–

    Otherwise, it will take more efforts than necessary to make it work; and genuine friendships (in my own POV) should just mesh naturally — not grate against each other. If there are any doubts to something working or not, then it will most likely not be a truly genuine relationship.

    I lost my best friend years ago because of this. And sadly, it happened after September 11, 2001. Her sister went to France before then, and got on the hot circuit to popularity with some rather bizarre names showing up on their *chain-mail* emails. The one particular chain-mail they received and sent to me was approximately titled-

    >> Friendships — “I’d better get this back!” (or else)…!!

    I didn’t respond to it right away, because something just didn’t sound friendly at all. The dates sent were all 2 years prior to 2001, but all surrounding the same weeks in September that 2001 showed the entire world.

    eerily, that particular chain-mail echoed what the terrorists were saying (on the news after Sept. 2001 became a household name and international situation) about befriending someone and basically taking them down to death’s door with them. As much as I tried to believe it wasn’t a threatening email, I certainly didn’t feel it was in the spirit of true friendship. The wording was harsh, and that’s why I hesitated from replying to it. I pointed that out to my “friend” after the Twin Towers were hit, etc., and haven’t written to her by email since then.

    As a result, her family ended up being involved with people I had no idea who they were, and our friendship became severely strained ever since. Since their mom died right after my mom did, the bonding we had was permanently severed. It shouldn’t have to be that way.


    Beyond that, I have done what I could to save the BT series. The rest in now in your hands.
    Good luck with the continuing efforts.

    and enjoy those *wild* BLOOD TIES parties. Only because I don’t drink (hate the taste of liquor), it’s better I don’t join in such conversations, and haven’t for the most part.

    also, just for the generic FYI — I would prefer my life to be boring and dull, but that is the farthest from the truth. I think my note about that last week or the week before would be enough to reinforce that.

    It’s just better this way for me to leave these two group sites.

    I do wish everyone the very best, and will keep everyone in my prayers.
    Take care always,

    Thanks Maggie May, Cree my southern sad sista’s I guess I’ll just have to save for March in Orlando right πŸ˜‰ Yeah whatever I wanna be in VA damn it!!! that was me stomping my feet *Unhappy Feet*

I love Ya’ll to bits and enjoy the goodies, oh and let Chris know he gets most of the Italian stuffed bread (carnivore’s what can I say)

    Himmie- There really HAS to be a story behind how you were doing dishes and thought of me…unless you were doing dishes the same time I was (’cause I did ’em tonight too) and we both thought “I hate doing dishes” at the same time and psychically connected… ^_^ Okay…i’m being a dork. But REALLY how did you connect the two? Bubbly water…not so bubbly personality. Dirty things…dirty mind??? – which inevitably leads to brainwashing… ;0) Okay..DEFINITELY Time for me to go to bed!

    Prtmama- “little z”? Woman…little is NOT an adjective that has ever been applied to me! ^_^ And you’re very lucky I’m not going to be at MamaClaire’s ’cause I’d be first in line for a hug! (and second and third and fourth… you get the idea i’m sure) ^_^

    Diz- I’m sorry you can’t go. 😦 YOu and I and the rest of us that are being left behind can all have our own private parties in our heads. That way all of our different personalities can enjoy Henry all at the same time! YAY D.I.D. Patiencts! πŸ˜‰ Love ya my older, and wiser, sister!

    For all who want to know…job is going fine. Trained on data entry today & got to play p.i to find the answers the previous temp screwed up on. LOTS of fun i might add! Who knew that searching on the ‘net could be so much fun…*giggles* I keep being reminded that everything could eventually lead to a perminant position w/the company if I do well. My barely restrained response is always “and you think I don’t know this because????” BUT I do have to go to bed. If I don’t I won’t be able to get up in the morning (*gag* I hate 6:30 am wake ups) and that would be BAD…oh and it’s my FIRST PAY DAY at the new job! *dances for joy* I can just TASTE the bill payments now!

  329. Tango said

    Gypsy – great job on the cat macro! And great idea about the recipes too. I’m going to post something tonight.

    Claire – loved the pictures! Looks like you and Danae are getting the party started off right. You gals are going to have so much fun. Love all the pictures of the quads, little Jake and crazy Josie. Again I say – you are so blessed with such a beautiful family – even crazy Josie is a beauty. Thanks for sharing!

    Laurel – my sweet dear friend. Thank you so much for the phone call. It was truly wonderful talking to you and thanks for keeping me company during my love drive to the coast.

    Freyja – so sorry to hear about what’s been going on at work. I truly believe that wonderful things lie ahead of you in the next chapter of your life. Make the most of this change.

    Prtfvr – sure everyone is obsessed with hugging you. True friends love to play on the quirkiness of each other. You’re just so dang fun to pick on!

    Laurel – my sweet dear friend. Thank you so much for the phone call. It was truly wonderful talking to you and thanks for keeping me company during my love drive to the coast. So, how’s that computer? Did the spray cause many problems? At least you did it before you got your new computer.

    Z – how’s that new job going? Are you happier?

    Diz – sorry to hear that you aren’t going to make it to the party after all. I know how much you were looking forward to it. I almost called you last weekend to come see me in Orange Beach. My hubby was sick and I was down there all by myself in a condo on the beach. I figured with the big party this weekend that you would be working or just not able to do two trips so close together. I should’ve called – Dang it!

  330. Arrowyn said

    Portland gang — I sent you all an email.

  331. Anzia said

    tango-yeah, i am. but that wuoldn’t be hard considering how miserable i was before.

  332. lwildstar said

    just flying thru to say good morning !!!!!! I will not be on line today – work is going to be nuts since I’m leaving early….I may or may not get t achance to answer emails before I leave for Claires so ……everyone ahve a great safe happy weekend!
    We’ll be emailing pictures I’m sure!

  333. Good morning ladies,

    I just want you to know I’m pouting today. I so want to be in Reston. Danae & Claire you look like you’ve known each other for years! I can’t wait for more pictures. If you want to email them to me as you take them I’d be happy to put post them on my blog so the unfortunate souls who are attend this bash virtually can enjoy along with you guys.

    Well I downloaded 5:55 from I tunes and watched it last night. Let me just say you ladies are in for a treat. I can understand why Christina and Scribble rank it as a favorite. It just β€œputs the pepper in the gumbo.” LOL

    See you at noon!

  334. Margaret said

    This is an excerpt from a Google Alarm I received for BT:

    Moonlight (CBS): New. Mick searches for a young vampire who is feeding on young women he meets online. CBS has ordered four more scripts of the show. Hopefully, they will entail stories that don’t have the vampire-hero having to be saved in every episode.

  335. That’s probably a good thing. Mick is the only vamp I know of that gets into more trouble than Henry!

  336. Anne said


    Yes, Missing was cancelled. Season Two is out on DVD – but not Season One.
    So whether Season Three with Kyle’s episode will be released, I wouldn’t know.

    You’ll have to hunt for re-runs πŸ˜‰

  337. Freyja said

    Good morning ladies,

    WordPress still won’t allow me to sign in. At least I know it isn’t my home computer that is the problem.

    Tango – Thanks! I’m going with the ‘I’m still young and have nothing to hold me here’ idea. I want to take full advantage of this opportunity so that is why I want to make a big move. Just waiting for the right thing to come along. Well, that and severance. πŸ˜‰

    To all the ladies traveling to Claire’s today, have a safe trip!!!

  338. Margaret said

    I’m perfectly happy with Henry being a lover, not a figther anyway..

  339. msgypsy said

    I’m thinking “up” for all of you who will be flying today. I want to hear all about all the trips!

  340. Maddie Mo said

    Morning all.

    Yippee it’s Friday!!!

    To all of you at Claire’s I’m completely jealous. Wish I could have made it over to VA. Have a great time and be safe. We want you all back here on Monday in one piece.

    Dizey, Glad to see you are back. Sorry life is kind rough on you lately. {{{HUGS}}}.

  341. prtfvr said

    I’ve pulled a bunch of pics from 5:55 but can’t send them yet because of spoilers – although they don’t really show you anything. Especially the pictures I tend to grab.

    I’ll send them out when I get home from Claire’s tomorrow. I feel sick! Meeting all these “strangers” that I know so well. I hope I can combine the two and get into a comfort zone. Although, it looks like Dani and Claire are already deep into it!

    See you Easties tonight!

  342. Wow, once again the creativity of this group astounds me. Thanks for all your responses. I had such a difficult time choosing the winner. There were so many fun choices. You girls are amazing and you are all winners in my book.

    I do apologize. My plan was to take several of the notable suggestions and make a fun little slide show of the costumes. Unfortunately, I got a little distracted watching 5:55. My Bad!

    I may still throw a little show together for the Halloween Party at Gypsy’s if I get time.

    OK, with no further ado, click on the link to see the winner posted on my blog.

  343. prtfvr said

    Alisa: You said a lot but didn’t really apologize. You could have saved some effort by just doing that. It’s all we’re looking for, not the filler.

    The pseudo “war” that has irrupted between the blogs was instigated by you this time. I didn’t want this, that’s why I got in touch with Angie the last time, one short week before this new drama started. You’ve destroyed my credibility and that is something I really pride myself on. I’m a very honest person, often to my detriment and now it looks like I was playing some kind of game. I’m not very happy about it.

    I don’t speak for anyone else here, but for my part, I agree with you that it’s time for you to take a break from gypsy’s. I don’t know how anyone else feels but I know that I’m not real happy to see your posts right now. I can and do skip them though so it really doesn’t matter to me whether you post or not.

    I still stand by my earlier statement that this alleged “war” is stupid and I’m not participating. I didn’t start it and I sure don’t need to encourage it. No to mention that I’ve been out of school for a while and this is a bit juvenile for me.

    “He said, she said”? What nonsense. Not to mention that Tanya’s blog is damaged and I don’t know if it will ever recover. I’m sure she’s really impressed by the “support” she’s seen so far from her “fans”.

    Because you’ve been a part of this blog for so long, I thought that you deserved better than the silent treatment from me but this is all I have to say on the subject – both on the blog and via email. And I wanted to say it publicly because it happened publicly and should end that way.



  344. elizabeth said

    Danae & Claire – What a great picture! I am really looking forward to seeing more once everyone finally arrives. Have a great time, ladies!!! πŸ™‚

  345. laurel said

    AlisaSG – I know you are making the choices that feel right for you and that is the way it should be. I will continue to think of you and hold you up in prayer. May you find blessings on your path and may joy light your soul.

    Tango – You must have really enjoyed the phone call! Two mentions in the same e-mail! Woo hoo!
    You’re right – it is a good thing I didn’t have the new computer yet. I get to order it today and hope to have it within the week. πŸ™‚ I just have to decide what all I want to have on it. My writing may have to stay on this one for now because I’ll be sharing the new one with my girls.

    Gypsy – I know nothing about a goat!!! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! (Oh, if that song is on the Karaoke machine I might even sing it. I like to make up my own lyrics for it. Hehehe) About the monkey though…. Let’s just say – I’m not convinced he was the one that made all the mess last time.
    As far as getting together tonight? I must confess that inertia is the main force in my life at the moment, but if someone offers a party location I will make an effort to be there. I do have “5:55” on my iPod and can connect it to any tv we can come up with. I would offer my place but Rose is home with a fever, headache and upset stomach. Let me know if an opportunity pops up. πŸ˜›

  346. Himmiefan said

    Dani and Claire – You two are beautiful!! Thanks so much for posting the picture. We expect many more from this weekend. I wish I could be there. Everyone have a great time, and behave (well, not too much….). πŸ™‚

  347. laurel said

    prtfvr – Well said.
    I must admit that I missed most of what agrivation happened because I lacked the time and inclination to read the LT blog except for Tanya’s entries. Sorry if I jumped in where I shouldn’t have.

  348. laurel said

    Freyja – It seems that I never learn about protecting my keyboard from sudden explosions of laughter. I am getting a new keyboard and it is one that has a better seal against “moisture” hehehe.
    I’ve been thinking good thoughts for you and feeling bad that you’re in this long stretch of high stress. Some places like to really drag it out for the maximum drama, don’t they. Their loss will be someone else’s gain – I can only hope it brings you an opportunity to do something you truly love. Hang in there and keep us posted.

  349. Actually should have said click on the link in my name to see the contest winner, but here’s the actual link. I’m such a ditz.

  350. Himmiefan said

    I love the winner! How cute. πŸ™‚

  351. Anne said

    So cute!

    Plus it reminds my of Tanya’s previous blog title: Where Cat? There Cat!

    I was thinking of suggesting Huey, Dewey and Luie, but someone beat me to it, and then I ran out if ideas πŸ˜‰

    Trivial info:
    In Danish, they are named Rip, Rap and Rup and Donald Duck is Anders And.
    In Danish, the sound a duck says is rap. So maybe there are more rappers in Denmark than in the US πŸ˜‰

  352. cdnfreyja said


    My eldest host brother is an Anders. And of course you must know about Andrea from Kai og Andrea? Yes, my youngest host brother had to point out that I shared my name with a parrot from a kid’s program. πŸ˜‰

  353. nina said

    It’s Friday!!

    Danae & Claire – Looks like you girls are having fun. Very cute picture, we need more!! When is the rest of the gang arriving?

    Prtvfr – How is Henry doing today? Still moody?

    Z – Di, I’m sorry about last night! I fell asleep in front of my laptop 😦 Thank god my proffesor said it’s ok to mail the project tomorrow!!

    You guys are killing me with 5:55. I really have to download it soon, sounds like a very good one.

    Ok going to finish my project, so I have Henry time sooner πŸ™‚

  354. So Danae & Claire must be having too much fun to check the blog. Ya think?

  355. cdnfreyja said

    That or planning world domination …

  356. Good One Freyja!

    What we going to do tonight Danae?
    Same thing we do every night Claire, try to take over the world! Mwahahaha.

    Just in case you’re not a fan that’s my favorite quote from Pinky and the Brain.

  357. Maddie Mo said

    I think they are planning a kidnapping…

  358. Hey guys here’s an interesting article about Vampires that appeared in our local paper. It mentions Blood Ties and Moonlight.

  359. cdnfreyja said

    Maddie, I think Danae is bound and determined to end up on Dateline: To Catch a Predator. How Claire got herself involved in it, we’ll never know …

  360. Claire said

    Bonjour My ladies!!!

    So Danae met the whole family! even grand kids! We stayed up to 1 am…talking..then went to breakfast with my daughter and grandkids…we had a blast!
    Monique and Danae just left to go shopping and drop Danae at the Hotel.
    All Monique and Nikki kept saying”You two look realated”
    she became an instant part of my family..even crazy Josie licked her senseless..I can’t wait to see everyone else later…to see if the bond is there with everyone!
    My only sadness..:( is missing the rest of my blood sisters!!

    LOVE YAS!!!

  361. It’s about time you guys checked in. Sheesh! We were getting ready to file a missing persons report on the two of you.

  362. Tango said

    Dr. du – loved your Halloween custome picture. You’re so talented!

    Congrats on being #1 Danae!

    5:55 absolutely put the pepper in my gumbo! Can’t wait to talk about it with you gals. Heck, I’d love to have video of Claire’s party while they are watching it. This is definately one of my favorites. You’re gonna love it!

    Anne, what do you mean, “in Danish, the sound a duck makes is rap”? Are we suppose to believe that ducks from different parts of the world speak different languages? πŸ˜‰

    Who would’ve thunk it?

  363. msgypsy said

    Well, Portland Gang, I think tonight is a bust. But that’s okay. We can get a vicarious thrill from hearing about Claire’s giant get-together. And next week (when I’m not tied up for the entire weekend) maybe we can meet someplace where there are no germs flying about (sorry, Rose!) and hook Laurel’s iPod up to the VCR and have ourselves a marathon!

    There’s a get-together for Nanowrimo participants at the Portland Central Library tomorrow afternoon and I’m all flummoxed. It’s almost November and not only do I not have a plot, I barely have an idea! Of course, half the people who participate in Nanowrimo start out this way and many of them finish but that doesn’t keep me from panicking!

    Well, back to work. I can hardly pay attention to anything! Between waiting for 5:55 to air and waiting for Nanowrimo to start I’m amazed I’m vertical!

  364. So Tango wasn’t that just adorable? That one is going to go down in history. It should Macro-ized and used for msgypsy’s next thread. As a matter of fact I’ll do it and send it to her tonight!

  365. elizabeth said

    msgypsy/Portland Gang – Okay, I can’t believe I am doing this, but it just feels right. I gladly offer my house next week for a BT marathon. I have all episodes on my DVR and, because I have DishNetwork the show actually comes on at 8pm. I don’t have the greatest TV, but I think we could all suffer through it. Let me know what you ladies think – it will take me a week to get my house clean enought for company πŸ˜‰

  366. Cree said

    Laurel: Didn’t you just love how I was the one that secretly planned to sneak the monkey into the party (not to mention the goat) and you are the one that ended up getting blamed for it? LOL . I should plan to do devious things more often when I know that you’ll be around to take the heat for it! πŸ˜‰ What Ms. G doesn’t know won’t hurt her……mwahahahaha!!!!!!!

  367. msgypsy said

    Elizabeth I think that is a FANTASTIC idea! I’ll make munchies, even.

    Cree, Laurel, you keep saying monkey like you think there’s going to be one. There’s not going to be a monkey. No monkey. This will be a monkey-free party. And a goat-free party, just in case anyone is considering it.

    I keep waiting for November so I can both start Nanowrimo and admire the Ianto-calendar. I will get a Blood Ties November calendar together later today.

    Back to work now. This time I mean it.

  368. vicki said

    hey alll

    I am here in Reston…WHOOO HOOO…andd I didnt even get lost..sort of…

    Anyway I am relaxing in my room and I have my friend Brandi cleaning the room (she’s a neat freak!!) We are waiting for someone to come knock on the door and say HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  369. Tango said

    Yes ‘Laise, that was adorable, and I must say a much better Southern accent than the one he tried to get away with during the chat a couple of weeks ago.

    We Southerners are picky when others try to immitate us. Some times it comes off as condescending, but they both did a good job in 5:55. Vicki sounded like a Charlestonian or a Southern Belle from Montgomery, AL or the Gump as we call it. Much like you would imagine the wife of Foghorn Leghorn to speak. πŸ˜‰

  370. Tango said

    Vicki – why would your room need cleaning if you just got there? Oh yeah, you’re one of those rocker chicks. And we all know how you rockers will trash a room. πŸ˜‰

    You didn’t nail any furniture to the ceiling now did you?

    Oh and you may want Brandi to seperate your M&M’s by color. We hear you rocker-types can be quite the divas.

  371. elizabeth said

    msgypgsy – Glad you like the idea for next week πŸ™‚ I have a couple of bottles of wine at the house and munchies wuld be fun. Laurel/Arrowyn/Nisi – I hope you ladies can come over? If Moonbeam is in town it would be even more of a blast!

  372. Margaret said

    Ah come on Ms. Gypsy, you have to let the Monkey come at least for a minutes so someone can say Cree’s wonderful line: Is that a monkey in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

    No bail required gals. Mission completed for this week and I gave my hairdresser 5 cards. She’s going through her third round of chemo which breaks my heart but she’s one heck of a trouper. And she loves Henry/Kyle right along with me so it doesn’t get any better than that. Actually she’d like to get ahold of Kyle’s hair, and I told her, ya right, I doubt that’s all you’d like to get ahold of, but I digress.

    Suggestion, forward I know, but when the parents come with their kids for Halloween ask them if they like vampires, if they do either hand them the flyer or the card. What do you think? I know, I need a life, that’s what my friends tell me.

  373. Margaret said

    Danae: Well done. I love the Cat and the Hat.

  374. vicki said

    according to my licience plate..I am “The Diva” HEHEHEH I just got it about three weeks I didnt trash the room yet..I am not drunk yet. HEHEHE

    but I am working on it…LOL

  375. elizabeth said

    Tango – Hopefully Vicki won’t request her grapes be peeled. You have to draw the line somewhere with rocker-types. Of course, a picture of her funiture on the ceiling might be cool πŸ˜‰

  376. vicki said

    Drat!!! I forgot to bring glue for the furniture!!!

  377. Himmiefan said

    Welcome back Tango, and Vicki! Now, where are Jennifer and the other newbies? Oh, and Ms. Moonbeam?

    Well, I have to go home to my empty house (well, empty of people, not critters) and sit by myself and watch BT. (sniff, sniff, blubber, blubber). I hope you all think of me….

  378. cdnfreyja said

    Himmie, I’ll be thinking of you … I’m at home tonight and I don’t even get to see the new episode. But at least I get a rerun! And I have a cat.

  379. elizabeth said

    Himmiefan – I will be watching BT by myself too. Both my kids vacate the room when the show is coming on because *whispers* I think I embarrass them by being all fan girlie. I have been known to talk to the TV and to get excited when I see a BT commercial. *looking around quickly* shhh – I wouldn’t want it to get out that I am somewhat addicted. πŸ˜‰

  380. Cree said

    Hey, Tango, divas aren’t the only ones who separate their M&Ms by color. Some of us non-divas do that too. Its called OCD and I have a bad case of it. I also have to eat them in even numbers. And I have to eat the ugly colors first. I’m weird, I know! πŸ™‚

  381. elizabeth said

    Cree – Wow! I thought I was the only one that did that kind of thing with M&M’s??? And, trust me, they do melt in your hand as well as in your mouth! Darned Marketing BS πŸ˜‰

  382. Arrowyn said

    I’ll be back later with more meaty stuff, but in the meantime, here are some bew BT icons I ran across in my travels.

  383. vicki said


    God our man is HOT!!!

  384. cdnfreyja said

    Thanks Arrowyn … now I’m thinking that I don’t really want to watch BT with my mom when she catches up at Christmas. I think I might just have to leave her with the tapes while I occupy myself with something else …

  385. Anne said

    For anyone worrying about California fires …

    I’ve been told that the fires are nowhere near Kyle’s home.

    Just thought you’d like to know – it’s one less person to worry about.

  386. Maddie Mo said

    I seperate mine by color too, but I have to eat the color with the most number first and then so forth till I get to the color with the least number. I also seperate out my chex mix and trail mix by type and save my favorite stuff for last. I know I need medication for that

    Anne – Thank you for the information. These fires are just so terrible. I’m glad his home is safe.

  388. Maddie Mo said

    Okay guys, I am off for the weekend. I too will be watching BT by myself tonight, Hubby won’t watch with me (scratches head and wonders why). I will catch up later.

    Everyone have a good/safe weekend!!!

    Love ya!

  389. elizabeth said

    bye Maddie Mo – Have a great weekend!

  390. elizabeth said

    Okay, I know I have a serious problem when I start to send an email out to my employees and say “this place is deader than Henry Fitzroy”. Good thing I re-read it before I hit send – sheesh

  391. elizabeth said

    Since I seem to be talking to myself here…I am going to sign off for the weekend. Work is slow and I have some errands to run.

    All of you have a terrific weekend, try not to drool too much over our favorite Vamp and, if what has been hinted at is true, have plenty of kleenex around! Enjoy your get together at Claire’s. I’ll be with you in spirit, since I can’t be there physically. *Okay, that didn’t sound quite so creepy in my head *


  392. Cree said

    Elizabeth and Maddie: Its nice to know I’m not alone in my M&M insanity!

  393. Himmiefan said

    Well folks, thank you for your sympathy. Those of us not at Claires will think of each other and be together in spirit as we watch tonight. That includes you Freyja – we’ll think of you even though you don’t get the same episode. You too Anne.

    Man, I have a case of the Fridays. My brain cannot do a single thing. Thirty more minutes and I’m outta here. I might slip out early if I can…. Bye!

  394. Nisi said

    Maddie Mo – My Hubby is the same way! He just doesn’t get it.

    Elizabeth – That sounds like fun, but I have a problem driving at night. I don’t see so good in the dark

    Did anyone else get a kick out of were-dolphin like I did last week? Sometimes I scare the dog when watching BT. πŸ™‚

    Have a fun weekend!

  395. Himmiefan said

    Nisi – I thought the were-dolphin comment was adorable!

    What am I still doing here at work? Time to go home!

  396. Margaret said

    Anne: Thanks for the info on Kyle’s house.

    Since you’re the veteran convention goer do you know an average cost of group photos? I know that autographs from Dylan and Kyle are going for $20 and that NO personal photos can be taken. I think it would be great if those of us going to Orlando can get a group photo as it would make for a great memory (for several reasons).

  397. Tango said

    Wow! Who knew the mention of M&M’s would have spurred such a revealing session? I can just see us all sitting around in a circle, one by one sharing our stories with Dr. du. OK, I’m just sitting taking notes, b/c I don’t do that, but do find it quite interesting. What do you suppose she would say? Dr. du?

    Anne – appreciate the news about the fires and Kyle. I have had family out there have to leave their homes, fortunately when they were able to return their home was uneffected, but it did get some of the neighbors. Our thoughts and prayers to all of you out that way.

    Arrowyn – great new pics, added some to my collection that I didn’t already have. Thanks! Oh, I only copied them, I didn’t steal any. πŸ˜‰

    The Thief

  398. Cree said

    Margaret: What do you mean no personal photos can be taken? Where did you see that? Does that mean we cannot have our individual picuture taken with them? Because that’s really going to bum me out if that is what that means. That was my main reason for going.

  399. Tango said

    Himmiefan! Sorry I didn’t mean to ignore you. Good to be back! Have really missed you guys. Evidently we’ve added a Jennifer while I was gone.

    You are welcome to drive a couple of hours south to watch BT with my hubby and me. That invitation is open to all those who are watching it alone, but you, Himmie, are the closest.

    Welcome Jennifer! I haven’t seen any of your posts because I am so far behind in reading the blog, that I have no hope of getting it all read. I am one of the veterans of the blog which migrated from the Lifetime blog last Spring. I live in the heart of Dixie (Birmingham, AL) along with Himmiefan(TN)and Dizey (LA),and I know I am forgetting someone who lives in Georgia. Where are you from? And how did you find us?

  400. Tango said

    Chief, it probably means that you have to buy them from their photographer and not take it with your own camera. Listen you all are going to be in a group and can come up with a way to distract TPTB while others take pictures with their camera phones. Let’s not forget you are a part of the Order of Yum and are trained in such tactical measures.

    Gotsta go cook dinner. Check with ya later taters!

  401. Arrowyn said

    Danae – Congrats on winning the costume contest!

    ‘Laise – Excellent work, as always.

    Everybody and anybody – I’m glad I’m leaving you all in 1/2 hour (doctor). You’re killing me with the taunts about 5:55! Now I know how the Canadians felt when you would rave about an eppy that we had seen and they hadn’t. I can hardly wait for 11:00!

    Prtfvr – If you are in any shape to send pics from 5:55 on Monday, then you didn’t have enough fun this weekend! I have heard about some of the pics you have grabbed in the past (although I’ve never personally seen any. Hint, hint) and I imagine “they don’t really show you anything” doesn’t do them justice.

    Laurel – You’re getting a new computer? Mac or PC? Bigger, better, faster? Shush! You know that’s a good thing in computers.

    Gypsy – Not going anywhere tonight is good for me. It’s been a week. However…

    E — You brave soul, you. Count me in for a marathon party next week! I’m not much on cooking and fixing, but tell me what to buy to bring, and I’m all over that.

  402. Cree said

    Good plan Tango. We’ll start working on “operation distraction” right away.

  403. Arrowyn said

    Himmie – Just pretend that all of us that are sitting home alone watching BT are with you. We are — in spirit.

    Anne — Glad to know Kyle’s home is not in danger.

    As an aside, ladies, but Anne’s information sort of implies that she knows where Kyle lives. Or she knows someone who knows where Kyle lives. Hmmmmm.

    All right. Off to the doctor. Pick this up later when I’ve read the rest of the posts.

  404. Margaret said

    This is from thier (Kyle/Dylan’s convention agent):

    Please note too that no personal photography may be taken at the photo session. The only camera used is the professional photographers. All personal cameras (including cell phone cameras) must remain in cases, purses or pockets. Also, as I mentioned before, no posed photography with the guys will be allowed at any time during the weekend. The photo session has been set up to give you the opportunity to have your photo taken with the guys.

  405. Cree said

    Thanks for the info Mags. Kinda sucks that we can’t have pictures made with them in the autograph line with our own cameras. Hopefully there will be enough time during the photo session for everyone to be able to get their photos taken with them. I am going to be one unhappy fan if not.

  406. Anne said

    Nope – don’t know where Kyle lives – except it’s not near one of the fire – which still leaves an awful lot of LA.

    As for photos – the conventions I’ve been to so far, it’s often been possible to take pictures of the actors with my own camera when they sit at the table selling signed photos or during first 10 minutes of the panels. At Megacon 2005 they sat there for several hours so if you came by during less busy times, you might be able to talk and take pictures.

    The photo sessions that cost X amount of dollars, that photo will be taken by a professional photographer and most times will be done in 24 hours so you might be able to bring it to the table next day to have it autographed.
    You might have to pay for getting it autographed though.

    Group shots are of course more expensive since you will need more prints and maybe more takes, trying to have everybody smiling and having open eyes and such . It might also need some photoshopping to get a good picture, so hence a higher price.
    There is also a limit to how many people can fit into a group picture.

    But different conventions have different rules, so we’lll just have to make sure we know what’s what.

    Probably no 5:55 for me until Sunday – sniff …

  407. nina said

    Hello ladies!

    Just taking a little break from my project and look what I found for the Minxes!

    I know it’s not a very large picture, but I like it πŸ™‚ (Kyle is still my baby)


  408. Cree said

    Thanks for the info, Anne. We are all newbies at this whole con thing and have no idea what the heck we are doing! Its nice to have a veteran among us. πŸ™‚

  409. Anne said

    Cree –

    Fear not – I shall try to advise you to the best of my knowledge.
    Which may sometimes be scant – but there you have it πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been to 3-4 conventions a year since 2004.
    And before that I was a two SciFi world conventions and two Bouchercons (PI stories, mysteries and thrillers).

    Just remember one thing – it’s also Kyle’s first convention, so be gentle with him πŸ˜‰

  410. Margaret said

    Well, your friend that made up the rules told us not to touch so past that I think we can behave. We certainly don’t want to embarass ourselves with the boy.

  411. laurel said

    Cree – I think we’ve been chastised about the monkey business! lol
    Now who started the convo about the M&Ms? I think we definately belong in a group home, I suffer from the same sorting and prioritising behaviors. Go figure! 😎

    Nina – thanks for the pic of Dylan! I saw him on the Lifetime movie Monday night, the one with Ricki Lake, and he was wonderful. He got to play the “good” guy who gets the girl. I love it when he gets to be the good guy. LT is advertising another movie with him in it but he looks to be the main suspect in a diabolical plot.

    Gypsy – Okay, I signed up for the NaNoWriMo. I not only have no plot in mind already in the middle of three stories that are demanding to be written. These are ones I’ve been working on for months and I have written over 12,000 words this week.
    I may be facing burnout before I even begin November. HELP!
    Elizabeth – I know you won’t see this until Monday but count me in for next Friday. I’d be happy to make something for us to share for dinner if you want to start that early. Otherwise I will bring appropriate chocolate laden snacks.

  412. Hi everyone.

    Hey I got out of going to the football game tonight it’s pouring rain and nasty here.Yay! Well not entirely because Mel still has to go and march, and I feel really bad for those kids, but I’m really glad that I don’t have to go sit through it and can join in the Friday evening festivities. Any word on the Reston group yet?

    I’m glad everyone like the Dr Seuss costumes. Danae had a great idea there, and I was really lucky to find actual costumes on line. Actually, it’s not one of my better efforts as far as the Photoshop collage work, but thanks for the compliments.

    I’ll be in and out this evening. Check back in a bit.

  413. laurel said

    How odd. One whole line of that last post vaporized into cyber-space. I suspect you got the gist of it though.

    Anne – Thank you for letting us know Kyle’s okay.
    I used to live in Orange County where some of the fires are. We haven’t heard from some of our friends yet, but we have been watching the news and haven’t heard their neighborhood mentioned so far. One less to worry about is always good news.

    Arrowyn – Mac! of course! I have my loyalties.

  414. Cree said

    Anne, I didn’t realize this was Kyle’s first convention. Wow, we get to be his firsts? We get to be the ones to de-virginize him? Okay, I’ll stop with the sexual references now. It was fun at first, but now I’m just making myself feel all dirty. πŸ˜‰

    Laurel: That is too funny that we all do the same things with our M&Ms. And here I’ve always thought I was weird (well, that’s what people tell me at least). And don’t worry about Crash. I’ll sneak him into the party while you distract Ms. Gypsy. Wow, seems we have more than one “opperation distratction” going on here.

  415. Cree said

    So does anyone know if these Cons are the things you hear about where its basically a big geek fest (not to offend anyone) where there are a lot of comic book things and people dress up like superheros and stuff like that? Because if so, I am going to have to do some MAJOR mental preparation for this event.

    And Anne, if you don’t mind my asking, what exactly do you do for a living that you can afford to go on all of these trips? The airfair alone has to be very expensive, not to mention everything else involved that is costly.

  416. Tango said

    I just sent by email my first cat macro because I could never figure out how to set it up to link from here. Does anyone still have a link to that site where you can go to make them? I’ve lost it.

  417. Anne said

    There will definitely be costumes and and geeks πŸ˜‰
    There will be people there who mainly go to show off their costumes that they’ve worked at for a maybe a year.

    Nothing special – I’m a computer systems operator, and it’s fairly well paid, what with shift work compensation.
    Also I don’t have a car and I live in a fairly cheap rental flat and I usually share hotel rooms with friends.

  418. Margaret said

    I know that I’m not a vampire expert but there is just something soooo wrong about Moonlight and its vampire saying its ok to go out in the sunlight, in fact so much so as to be out in the desert and then saying if they get too much sun that there might be a problem. And haven’t I seen that biting scene that they opened with somewhere else, deju vu. Put a pair of glasses on that girl and call her Vicki. My apologies to those of you who like Moonlight. This is the third time I’ve tried to watch and I just can’t get into it.

  419. cdnfreyja said

    Margaret, I have it on right now and I’m trying to pay attention. Last week’s was okay BUT I still don’t get the going out in daylight thing. Did I miss some explanation?

  420. Anne said

    Plus that “sleeping in a freezer” – not romantic!
    Injecting the blood – ewww.
    It gives me junkie associations!

    I know some nourishment ends up in the bllod stream – but for vampires in the same series to both ingest and inject seems … just wrong.
    If all of the vamps injected I could perhaps accept it …

    I liked that new twist in Blade where vampire ash was an addictive drug and they killed each other for it. I’m sorry we ever really got Chen’s story.

  421. Anne said

    Didn’t Spike go about in daylight too – he just tried to stay in the shade ….

  422. Margaret said

    Freyja: I got it on too. He said at the beginning that they could stay out in the sun but really didn’t explain it. It just seem that its sooo not vampiry to be walking out in the sunlight. It just seems so wrong. And that one episode where he was hiding from the girl sipping blood from a blood bag, that is so not romantic. And the cat eyes. I started laughing when I saw it. Everything about this show just screams not a romantic vampire and I can’t help but compare it to BT. At least Henry’s a man about it when he needs to feed.

  423. Tango said

    Hey Anne – love that pic behind your name. Even though he wasn’t as scantily clad as I’d dreamt he’d be, he was still sexy as hell.

    Yeah, I’m still trying to like Moonlight. The freezer and the way they just drink blood is not nearly as sexy as Henry’s take on sleep and nurishment. Blood Ties is just an all around better show, but I don’t mind supporting the genre in order to make a point. However I will not be going to see that scary vampire movie that is doing so well in the theaters right now. Ouuuuu sooooo scarrrrry!

  424. msgypsy said

    Spike and Angel didn’t go about in direct sunlight. They went about in shade. Lots of shade. And towards the end of “Angel,” they explained that it’s some component of sunlight (I think it was a way to get around saying “ultraviolet”) that caused the problem which is how Angel managed to have windows in his office and ride in a limo during the day. (Specially treated windows and he never got out of the vehicle, which was kept in shade when he opened the door or window.) I considered that cheating but at least they gave the vamps that handicap. I resent the vamps that don’t have some kind of major handicap like that.

    I got the impression (never stated in the show) that Henry can’t actually control when he’s going to shut down for the day. He can control how comfortable he’s going to be when he wakes up, and he can allow himself to shut down slowly and in a timely fashion or he just sort of drops where he’s standing if he runs too late. Does anyone else see it that way?

    Did I tell you I got a nifty gift at work? They’re recycling some of the old monitors and I got a new flatscreen. Newer than the regular monitor I had before, that is. It’s probably a year and a half old. It’s larger than my old 13 inch monitor and doesn’t take up the entire desk. I’m so happy about this!

    I must go eat now. And make coffee. Cuz staying up that late isn’t going to be easy. It was a DAY today. I think my entire department is ready to do face plants.

  425. cdnfreyja said

    gypsy, I get the same general impression. But I guess I’m thinking about the 2-hour pilot (still kicking myself for not recording that!) when he was late in getting in that morning and was burned (more like singed). If he is supposed to ‘drop’ when the sun rises, how did he manage to stay outside that long? Sorry, just one of those little things …

  426. Margaret said

    I just saw a commercial for tonight’s episode. Please tell me that I’m not the only one getting pissed about the lack of advertising for this show.

  427. Hey All check out my new picture. Just a warning though, it’s from tonights show.

  428. Gypsy, you are exactly right about how Henry is affected by the rising sun.

    I, for one, am really liking Moonlight. I just try real hard not to compare the two shows but take each on its own merit. Mick could never replace Henry but he’s pretty appealing in his own way. I have room in my heart for the both of them.

    There are a quite a few differences in vamp lore between the two shows, But then there are quite a few difference in vamp lore in every book I read. It’s typical of the genre. Everybody picks and chooses and creates their vamp to their own specifications. I did the same when I created Kieron. He is a conglomerate of my favorite vampire traits from all the books I’ve read, plus a few I came up with on my own.

  429. cdnfreyja said

    I’m going to keep watching Moonlight. I’m hoping that somewhere along the way they’ll explain some of this stuff. If not, I’m not going to sweat it. It just is. And like Annalaise, I’ve got room for both shows.

    Oh, and Annalaise, I love that Cat in the Hat macro!

    Well ladies, I’m off to bed with the book version of Vicki, Mike and Henry. Have loads of fun with the new episode!

    God nat!

  430. laurel said

    OMG! I’ve lost control of the TV remote! There may be mayhem at my house tonight! It doesn’t count that I have this episode on my iPod because I need to watch with all the commercials and previews in place! Waaaaaa!

    Oh, wait, They said I can have the remote at 10:59. That’ll work. hehe

    I did get my new computer tonight! πŸ™‚ Alas, I have no idea how much trouble I’m going to have getting my stuff transfered over to it so I am going to leave it in the box until morning. Happy, happy, happy!

    I just checked the hen house and nobody was in it. Where is everybody?

  431. msgypsy said

    Are you still here, Laurel? I was busy inventing dares for Nanowrimo. I’ll head over to the HenHouse for a little while and see if you’re still around.

    Whoever took that remote away from you had better return it in time or they’ll have to answer to me. And they all know how scary I am!

  432. himmiefan said

    Tango – thanks for the invite!

    Okay folks, what’s a nanowrimo?

    BTW, light green M&Ms and Henry. πŸ™‚

  433. Anne said

    Nanowrimo …

    Someone getting Mork from Ork’s greeting wrong πŸ˜‰
    Naughty Norwegain Wringing Monday?
    Natural Nocturnal Wrinkle Models?
    Nasty Northern Wriggle Morning

    Or possibly National Novel Writing Month ….

  434. Margaret said

    I thought I’d fall on the floor when I heard Henry’s “Well if that don’t put the pepper in the gumbo……. in a southern accent. Cdnfreyja please don’t take offense but there’s just something really funny about watching two Canadians do a southern accent and both of them doing it quite well. What an episode, it had everything, it was funny, tragic, tear jerking. Wow.

  435. cdnfreyja said

    No offence taken Margaret! You ladies should have learned by now that it takes a lot to offend me. As my friend says, I’m so laid back I’m horizontal. LOL! So no worries.

    Accents are a funny thing. Everyone thinks that other people have them. People put in their minds what people ‘should’ sound like. To me, a Canadian doing a southern accent is no different than an actor from the northern U.S. doing the same thing. Or an actor from Britain doing a ‘generic’ American accent for tv. I’m always amazed when people can do it well. I do languages, not accents. LOL!

    I’m looking forward to the episode! I just wish the broadcasts had started on time. Then we would have been about a couple weeks behind, I believe.

  436. Margaret said

    Like I said before, I don’t know what you all have in the water up there, but Canada produces the best and prettiest looking men I have ever seen in my life. David James Elliott, Kyle Schmid, Dylan Neal. I’m sure you can tell me a bunch more.

    Wonder if the party has either stopped or started at Claire’s. Guess we won’t hear from them until the weekend is over. lol

  437. laurel said

    Well, I did get the remote back with one minute to spare! I think they were just trying to make me crazy!
    It worked!
    I loved this one! It really got to me, being a serious Mike fan and all. I enjoyed getting to see Vicki finally working out her feelings for the two men.
    sigh. The poor dear just has it soooo tough.

    What was with the desk manager whistling “Three Blind Mice?” Some subliminal message about the three of them walking around blind to one another on an emotional level?
    Dr. duChat? Jump in here any time! Inquiring minds want to know!

    Margaret is right about the good lookers coming from Canada, but we do have a few of our own…. Just not any that are my iPod just now. Oh-oh!
    Wait a minute… brain fade… uhhhhh Orlando Bloom, Josh Groben…
    There must be more than that! Maybe I need to get out more. 😎

    Gyspy – sorry I missed you last night. The hen house was empty and I started digging my new computer out of the box and forgot to check in a couple of times. πŸ™‚
    I discovered that I have to go out and buy some cables and connectors in order to transfer info to the new unit. Add to that the logistical nightmare of trying to sit them both on the desk for a couple of days, plus I want to have both on the internet….
    Way over this poor old-girl’s head. I’d say it was making my hair turn grey – but so far the newly applied brown is holding its own. lol

    The East Coast party must be rocking on. As far as I can tell there’s been no word from any of them since yesterday afternoon. Nothing on the news to indicate trouble so far either. πŸ˜›
    Margaret, Dizey, Cree – You gals doin’ okay?

  438. Margaret said

    Doing fine. Trying to get all my housework done so I can watch last night’s show again. I love the lines in this one, heck I love the lines in all of them. But is: If that don’t put the pepper in the gumbo….. an old expression. If it is, it’s not one I’m familiar with. And to watch Kyle’s delivery of it, what a hoot. Not only is he just darned good looking but he’s funny too.

  439. Margaret said

    Thanks for asking. Forgot to say that I’m going to try to carve Henry into a pumpkin, using the Lifetime template. That should be fun.

  440. himmiefan said

    National Novel Writing Month

    Ohhhhhh. Thanks Anne!

    Now, Christina can do a great Cajun accent. Not generic Southern mind you, which really doesn’t exist, but Cajun. Great job! Plus, I love Henry’s comment. One to quote over and over!

    Um, I’m getting worried about the ladies. Do you think the police have been called in to break up the party?

  441. cdnfreyja said

    Margaret, if I knew what was in the water, air, etc. I could bottle it and make a fortune! And didn’t you know that all Canadians are born with a major funny gene?

  442. Happy Saturday Ladies.

    No word from the Reston group yet? Geez the must be one heck of a party. Come on ladies check in already. Where all those pictures you promised?

    and speaking of peppered gumbo…

    Laurel>>>What was with the desk manager whistling β€œThree Blind Mice?” Some >>>>>>>subliminal message about the three of them walking around blind to >>>>>>>one another on an emotional level?

    That’s pretty deep for these writers, maybe it was a tongue in cheek comparison to The Three Stooges, did ya ever think of that? LOL

  443. Margaret said

    Don’t know about funny but I’m pretty sure both of them have some mischief bottle up in them somewhere. Kyle just seems to be mischievous. Can’t really explain it, just a feeling I have about the boy. Maybe its the discussion about him dive bombing the bed all those times. And Dylan seems like he could be full of mischief too, its just he probably acts more grownup about it.

  444. LOVED the episode last night!!! Vicki and Henry doing the southern accents, omg I could not stop laughing. My bf thought I’d done gone and lost my mind!

    The feeding at the end… It inspired me… No really I wound up writing a little short story last night after the show, unfortunately it’s not a fanfic, but it still has vampires and thats good enough for me!

  445. lwildstar said

    I made it home alive!!!! they are still in VA partying…..we have lots of pictures that I’m sure will be passed around soon – including people hugging prefvr and surviving!
    We had soooo much fun! Thank you mama Claire Bare for hosting all the crazyness!!!!!!

    I now have to go watch my recording of 5:55 – because at times we were laughing or yelling or commenting and missed lines!

  446. msgypsy said

    I am evil and awful and STOOPID! I decided to get into bed to watch “5:55” because I knew I was exhausted and would want to fall asleep as soon as it ended. GUESS WHEN I FELL ASLEEP???? I woke up at 4 AM and watched it from the moment Vicki tells Henry to trust her, that she can make this right. (I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet) so I didn’t totally miss it (YAY for my VCR) but DAMN I can’t believe I fell asleep right then. And had a very complex dream about an awesome Italian restaurant in Denver (which I inventedi n the dream, mind you, since I live in Oregon) and Dylan Neal and his children (No, I never have ROMANTIC dreams, do I?) and a baboon bite and oh, don’t ask about the rest of it, please?

    I have a meeting at 3 for Nanowrimo (yes, that’s National Novel Writing Month which starts Nov. 1) and a party at 7 so I’ll be scarce til tomorrow. Type at you all later, though!

  447. Margaret said

    Have fun Ms. G.

  448. Cree said

    Doing okay Laurel. Thanks for asking. Work kept me busy and my mind occupied.

    lwildstar, I noticed you called Claire “Claire Bare” a few posts up. Does this mean Claire was naked for the party? Well, it was at her place, so I guess she could be naked if she wanted to be, right? Too much wine perhaps? Gotta love those fun typos! πŸ˜‰

  449. lwildstar said

    Whoops! no I didn’t realize i did that! good grief – what is she going to think!!no, Claire was fully clothed – I just can’t type – I am sooo tired!
    I’m logging out for the night – I’ll check in with you guys tomorrow!

  450. Cree said

    I’m just messing with you, lwildstar. I knew what you meant. I just love our fun little typos and I am sure Claire will get a laugh out of that one too! πŸ™‚

    So, am I just blind and missing it, or has Tanya not posted the blog on LT for last night’s episode yet?

  451. Margaret said

    Cree: Its not been posted yet. Didn’t she say in the past that it would be Monday before she would post?

  452. prtfvr said

    Yeah, Claire was wearing clothes the whole time – with the exception of when she took off her shirt so that we could look at her tattoos. Other than that, fully clothed, yep. πŸ™‚

    Tanya posted a comment that she sent her post to Lifetime and is just waiting for them to put it online – she also answered your question Mags and Tangos as well…..

    Mags, I heard that too, about her posting on Mondays, but so far this “season” they have all been up by now, that’s why I was curious.

  457. Margaret said

    Thanks. What a sweetie you are.

  458. lwildstar said

    mags – if you still can’t find it let me know…

  459. Margaret said

    I found it. Thanks. See that’s what I get for assuming. I assumed that they had been in that elevator before but Tanya said it only happened once. Now I have to go back and watch it again. Drats. Like I need an excuse.

    Glad you all had a great time. Wasn’t it wonderful to be able to discuss the show without people rolling their eyes at you and implying that you’re crazy?

    oh yes…

    I’m back from the meeting, which was awesome. Nano people make great cheer leaders for each other. And I got to loan out my old laptop to someone who (a) REALLY needs it and who (b) lives with a guy who worships old technology so he’s sure he can keep it working for the month. YAY! And I’m no longer writing a spiritually oriented thriller. That one was taking too much brain time and Nano is about crunch time, not brain time. So I’m writing a murder mystery that takes place at a Pagan festival in the Colorado Rockies. In other words, I’m writing what I know. (It’s based on a true story that I was witness to, and, not, there are no evil witches in this one. There are some survivalists and a few old guys still having bad Viet Nam war flashbacks, but the witches are the good guys…) Nano writers have a philosophy that the point is to get it written; the corrections and tweaking are for the rewrite phase. So I probably won’t share it until after the first of the year, but I’ll share it with anyone who wants to read it once it’s readable.

    And now I’m off to start the new topic.

    New topic is up.

    And don’t forget, party on the blog (and most likely at Hens, too) all day Wednesday. Wear a costume and NO DAMN MONKEYS! Or goats. Or baboons. It’s all your fault that I dreamed I was bitten by a baboon while flirting with some SCA geek who was wearing armor to an Italian restaurant.

    And now I have to go dress as the old herb lady (or whatever I can pull together) and head to Amy’s party. I’ll type at you all later, my lovelies! And everyone from Claire’s had better have a full report for us! Every last one of ya!
