My tv almost had a gay explosion last night. I mean, it’s not my fault that overall tv is pretty gay, but it’s getting to the point where I think I should just slap a rainbow sticker on my DVR and let it out to march in a gay-rights parade, because, DAMN. I watch some gay tv. Best example? The Style Network show Dress My Nest, hosted by Thom Filicia, the interior decorating guru from Queer Eye, had as his special guest on the show Jay Manuel. The incredibly orange and incredibly gay photo shoot director from Top Model. ANYWAY, the power of the gay was overwhelming and it was awesome. Also, Jay is really tall. Like almost 6 feet I think. But I guess since we only see him next to Amazonian model women he seems shorter.
In other gay news, last Saturday Caroline, Cheryl, Wendy, Moe, and I piled into the car and went to Politics and Prose to meet Tim Gunn. That’s right, Tim Gunn. From Project Runway. The classiest, most charming, smartest, guy on reality tv ever. And he is just the same in real life as he is on the show. Except he was actually wearing jeans! With a crisp buttoned down shirt and blazer, of course. Also, opposite of Mr. Jay, he was very wee. He cannot be taller than 5’6 or 5’7. But I think it only adds to his charm. I got a copy of is book, got it signed, and we commiserated about the lack of style in DC. “It’s the civil servant uniform,” he sighed. Word, Tim Gunn.
My So-Called Life coming out on DVD? Holy crap y’all. That show shaped my teenage existence. If any girl who watched that show tells you she did not have a crush on Jordan Catalano, she is a lying wench. But in retrospect, I am totally rooting for Brian. Jordan is actually kind of a loser, and you know he ended up as a mechanic or something with 10 babies and a wife who hates him. Not that there is anything wrong with being a mechanic. Also, I dare you to watch the Christmas episode where Ricky is homeless and not cry. I DARE YOU.
Currently NOT Watching: the 40 hours of sweeps television I have on my DVR. I really need to get on that.
Currently Listening To: Anything by The Beatles, but especially Revolver.
Dad: I found a dead bird in my yard and a dead bird in your grandmother’s yard.
Me: Maybe’s it’s a cat.
Dad: Maybe it’s bird-flu.
