  1. Dorinda forced that discussion on air.
  2. Yes! And yes! She was really sharp and negative about everyone.
  3. I like JRT's shoes. Re:class reunions. My experience is that they get better the older we get. By 20/25+ years, people are more real and less about trying to impress each other. The 5 and 10 year reunions, not so much fun. Always nice to see the old friends, though. (I went to a rural high school with a graduating class of about 200.).
  4. Didn't the Q just sell a different bicycle gadgety thing TSV recently?
  5. Home Shopping Network

    As someone else mentioned, I think "her" and "she" are just industry talk for "the customer." It used to bug me, but I have heard it enough now that I'm not offended.
  6. I've been giving the NuFace gizmo the side-eye ever since they first introduced it. The original version was rectangular shaped with those big silver balls attached -- looked like a 6th grade science fair project.
  7. Wait, but -- doesn't it fit in the shoulders and the bust???? (Qspeak) I actually thought it looked too flowy from the waist down on most people today. And I am larger from the waist down -- need a sleek, not flowy look, over the tummy.
  8. Shawn is not the only one who thought the dress needed more bling as in a belt. (See the Royal Wedding thread here at PTV). All I can think of are those brides on Say Yes To The Dress -- in which the stylist adds a blingy belt (probably $$$$) to "complete" the look! No to the blingy belt, IMO. Very clean and classic look. You have to have a great figure to carry off that look.
  9. S01.E02: Part Two: "Little Women"

    I always thought Amy was the worst; selfish and self-centered. I haven't see the other screen versions, although I saw a clip of Kate Hepburn(who I love and admire) and her Jo seemed VERY overly-dramatic. I only remember the book, and it has been many years since I read it, so perhaps my memories are flawed. I enjoyed this version, especially Jo, Marmee, and Father. Did anyone watch the PBS show about Louisa May Alcott's life? Very interesting.
  10. Yes -- it is such a slight asymmetrical hem that it does look "off."

    A306412 Corso Como Leather Ankle Strap Sandals -Beata Not just this shoe -- but I am often bemused/surprised by the shoes shown that might be "stylish/on trend" but are not flattering. A thick ankle strap? (Cuts off the line of the leg.). A thick, flat sole? (Chunky, unflattering.). Yet the models keep pointing their feet to show the shoe in a more flattering way. LOL.
  12. S03.E01: Ciao, Napoli!

    Yeah, I thought the guests were awful, but I did wonder "how hard is it to bring them a bowl of nuts????" Not to excuse their rude, tacky behavior later.
  13. I think it is so funny that "God Save the Queen" is the same melody as "My Country 'Tis of Thee." I was imagining myself singing "sweet land of liberty" (from the British) as I sat in that chapel!
  14. I think the Queen is just so ingrained into the "stiff upper lip" show-no-emotion mantra in which she was raised, that she appears unemotional. In real (private) life, from what I have read, she has a good sense of humor.
  15. Okay. Bloody Mary mix??????????? ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„. Really?????
