Fridays are Trashy Again



 Click and then come back


Okay, how did he get inside the balloon, get out of his pants and then wind up with his head poked out of the hole that he crawled in? My youngest son, Harry, and I have been obsessed with this since we saw it last week on America’s Got Talent. Stupid judges buzzed him before he could finish his act.   Tell me that’s not entertaining.

Project Runway is back, yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Any of y’all that are NOT on board with that series, you must, because I will be yakking about it nonstop for the next three months.  I’m obsessed with TimGunn 2.0 (he’s such a cute robotic kinda guy, love him) and I’m almost stalkerish in my lavish affection for his TV personality — the way he can tell a designer their stuff sucks with just a “Mmmm, very well.  Carry on.”  And Malan, one of the designers, with that fake accent and totally goofy laugh, he will be nails on a chalkboard.

Add Big Brother All-Stars and that Rockstar: Supernova to the list of series that are in production for the summer, and my television is once again a friendly place to be pleasantly diverted without needing to think.  I know some people hate TV and never watch it, but my work is way too stressful to not have a place to enjoy the idiocy of others, and I love fluffy entertainment, and summer television now is just chock full of low-rent diversions that are like Chinese food, not filling, but fun while you are eating it.

Have we talked about the Jalaine oils? I think we all need to start a letter-writing campaign to turn these into EDTs and EDPs. The Green Tea, Silk and Vetiver are to die for.  I expect oils last on other people better, but not on me, just gone in a couple of hours. I NEED to be able to spritz these with abandon, I craves it like my lunges crave air! /FoghornLegornimpressionoff  Start those letters now requesting the conversion of these lovely scents into noncosty EDTs. As much as I adore them so far, I cannot bring myself to shell out $90 for 6 ml in the refill version, but I’d happily cough up $200 for a nice big 100 ml EDT or a smaller EDP or Parfum.

It . is . killing . me . not . to . buy . these.

Winner from last week of their pick of four Parfumerie Generale samples is — Dinazad!  Hit the contact us button over there on the left, and send me your four choices and your address, and they will be on their way to you. 

I’m likely to repeat this give-away next week because so many of you entered, so look for that on Tuesday!

    I’ve only tried the Silk and while i do really like it, it just isn’t that special to me. Too similar to every other vanilla scent out there I guess. The price is mostly for the gorgeous bottle I think…

  • Patty says:

    Veronica and Sariah — yeah, I’d do that much. The Hermessences are 190 for 100 ml now, it takes almost that much to get a Serge nonexport for 75 ml and the 50 mls of Serge are $90.

    And they are THAT good that I would put them in that caliber of fragrance, if they had some lasting power.

    The samples are partial vials, but because they are oils, the sample lasts quite a while. I think I’ll be living on samples for a while. 🙂

    Carry on!

  • Robin says:

    Am I really the only one that doesn’t get the appeal of the Jalaines? Not a single one of them really grabs me. I guess I’m saving $$$.

    Tim, my hero! ^:)^

  • Patty says:

    March, that is just weird. Have you ever done the site where you can make the guy dance in all these different ways? Wish I could remember the name of it.

    I had to abandon America’s Got Talent this week. Now they are actually being serious about it and trying to find a winner. I just waned a damn freak show!

  • Sariah says:

    Wow, that is some sticker shock, $90 for a 6ml refill – so $15/ml. For curiousity’s sake I looked it up on luckyscent and saw that a 1/32oz sample is $6 – that’s about $6/ml. So why not just buy a bunch of samples? (unless that sample is actually smaller than it says?) I’m not going to bother – I don’t want to like something that I’m unwilling to pay for!

    Bubble man truly has no shame, got to love it.

  • Veronica says:

    Whoa. $200? I don’t care if its last name is Vetiver. For $200 that EdT better be able to scrub floors, wash dishes and iron my clothes….

    America’s Got “Talent”: I was laughing so hard the Big Cheese came over to see what I was watching. He said, “what the hell is THAT?!?!” I said I had absolutely no idea. But you are right, that right there is GENIUS. I love the way his pants fall off. Also, visually, he is TOTALLY Boohbah.

    Go to It is almost as weird as that dude. Sort of psilocybin for preschoolers. You gotta watch them dance.
