    ^This!! He is on my tv right now in a red, white and blue striped top along with what appears to be black striped dress pants. Yikes!

    TV Shows you can watch over and over again

    I watch “The Office” reruns on almost a daily basis. And I will never get tired of watching them. Also, there are certain earlier season Simpsons episode I can watch over and over again...and repeat the lines from memory.

    TV Star Crushes

    I love Clay Travis...for his swagger, outspokenness and many other reasons!
  4. I am with you on this. We have some seriously bad weather folks in my city and since we have like 8 months of winter many of the local newscasts are nothing but weather hysteria. In the same vein...there is an announcer for one of the sports teams here that I cannot stand. He is a local legend, has been with the team forever and has a very distinct voice which many love but I cannot stand. Seriously, if I listen for more than a few minutes, I start to get a bit anxious.

    QVC

    I own quite a bit of Logo and it is most of my work wardrobe but even I am sick of the line. Prices are out of this world, I am noticing newer items to have less and less color choices and overall the prints and designs have gone stale. Speaking of going stale, did someone at QVC tell Isaac that the only design he can do is peplum and/or lace?? I thought the peplum fad was over but nearly every time I tune in and he is on....he is selling something with a peplum hem.

    QVC

    Yes to this!! I have purchased a lot of Logo items and wear Logo to work frequently but I am soooo over this line. Her TSV’s are always huge duds in my opinion and her prints and color schemes are getting boring and reptetive. And don’t get me started on the prices. Look I don’t mind paying a bit more for quality tops as I dislike shopping at the mall for many reasons but her prices have gone from kind of high to out of this world high. I was hoping for some fresh new designs on TSV but there was very little. Been a long while since I have posted here as I am not just over the Logo line, but over QVC in general. Prices have gone up all over, quality is down and it is the same stale merchandise and lines. Even when they have “sales”, I don’t find anything special about it. Like today I was browsing their “fashion sale” on the homepage and nearly everything I looked at had broken sizes and colors and virtually no plus sizes available. Same with Logo sales, anything that is remotely decent never has plus sizes available. Before returning to the world of lurking, I will say something nice. Mary Nelson and Courtney Khondabi are both excellent and I really enjoy their AM and PM Style shows on QVC2.

    I have bought stuff from the line...it is good quality and prices are good, especially with the extra percentage off codes HSN regularly has. Bill is excellent as a host and OAP. I am not really a big fan of Connie Craig-Carroll, but when she and Bill team up it is enjoyable to watch as you can tell they are friends and have good chemistry working together.

    QVC

    July 1st...to me it is the start of the hottest part of summer, especially here in my corner of the world where most of spring was cold and miserable. July 1st...to QVC is the end of summer and the start of endless hours of generic gift shows for everyone you come in contact with on a daily basis and capri pants and sandals are replaced with boots, leggings and denim jackets galore. Can’t wait for the first “pumpkin patch” reference. *eyeroll* I am also not a fan of the hard sell on the TSV. This has to be like the 10th or so TSV for this item. I have no interest in purchasing it but if I did, I am going to go out on a limb and say it could be bought elsewhere for a better price. AM Style and Leah is one of the very few shows/hosts I can watch. Leah is looking good these days and her manicure and overall look are always on point. Even made a purchase today, trying the denim from the Laurie Felt line. Her line seems to get pretty good reviews and she does a calm, non-frantic presentation, which is a rare thing on Q these days.

    QVC

    Not a fan of her, she acts snobby and like it is beneath her to be at QVC. Isaac has a TSV coming soon, a denim jacket (how original!) so we will get a full day of her, ugh!

    Sharon looks awful here...bad mix of patterns, that top looks like it could be lingerie and the shoes...awful. Strappy heel sandals and camo joggers are a bad combo. Sharon is a good sport though, she is always upbeat during Logo shows and wears the items for sale. I don’t think she is faking the enthusiasm and if she is, she is doing a good job of it. I have lots of Logo tops, it is the only thing I buy from QVC anymore. Yes the prices are high, but I don’t mind as it keeps me from having to go to plus size departments in places like Macy’s or Kohl’s where I find the clothes to be frumpy and drab compared to the regular womens section. Despite the fact I watch and purchase Logo regularly, I have some issues with it. It is getting way to pricey and her designs are becoming slate. Saw a top that piqued my interest in a recent show, thought about it and realized I already had two similar tops. I like her prints (I don’t do layers or pattern mixing) and have several I wear often but I don’t need more with lace or whacked out hemlines, which is what she seems to include on most tops now.

    Small Talk: Take A Break From Shop(ping) Talk

    It is “The Batchelorette”. They are filming a hometown date with one of the remaining guys. He moved away as did he parents, but they decided to do the hometown date here anyway. Which means the only two things they will probably show is them eating chicken wings and visiting Niagara Falls! At least most of the snow is melted so maybe when it airs the weather jokes will be kept to a minimum.

    I second this sentiment. Nice to see the kind words and compassion shared on this thread as, in my opinion,it is becoming scarce these days especially in the world of social media and politics. Gray and gloomy for like the 17th day in a row here. Hopefully tomorrow’s predicted snow is it. I do see 60 degrees and sunshine in the extended forecast..but I will believe it when I see it. A well known reality tv show is in town filming right now and of course it has to be terrible weather instead of sunny and warm. I am not a fan of the show, but I might tune in as any time there is even the slightest connection to this area, the local media goes nuts over it.

    QVC

    I still can’t believe the Karadashians sold their stuff on QVC. I don’t remember what their Q line was like but the stuff they did for Sears was tacky and really overpriced. The worst D-list celebrity ever to appear on a shopping channel in my opinion is Snooki from Jersey Shore who was on HSN selling a replica of her stuffed animal along with other assorted junk she threw her name on.

    Beyonce is sooo ridculously overhyped and overexposed...I am not a fan. I don’t watch Wendy’s show but every few days or so she seems to have a beef with someone or say something outrageous that the entertainment blogs pick up on. I have seen some of her HSN appearances and to me, she acts like appearing there is beneath her. She is just another in the long line of reality show hasbeens and D-list celebs slapping their name on merchandise they didn’t have any hand in designing. More like they picked it out of a catalouge. Couldn’t tell you the last time we had a sunny day here. April has been very gray, cold (like 20 degrees below normal) and miserable. Saturday’s ice storm wasn’t as bad as predicted...was some freezing rain, mostly sleet. Snow/rain mix coming down at the moment..with more snow and temps in the 30’s for the week. This is by far the worst spring I can remember here and no springlike weather is in the extended forcast either. Not sure if this the case elsewhere where the weather is bad, but here in my area...everyone is grumpy no matter where you go. My office was so quiet today, anywhere I have gone lately...the store, coffee run, out to eat, everyone is downcast and complaining. Even during our lake effect events in the winter, it is not as bad as it feels now.
  15. The Office...it should have ended when Michael Scott left. The Robert California era was terrible and Andy, Dwight and even Jim and Pam were more annoying than fun to watch, at least for me, as the series neared its end.
