To Tide You Over

I was going to write this long poetic blog about death and life and the blah blahs attached to it (can you tell I've watched Six Feet Under again?) but it's a Monday. No one should have a downer Monday.

But then, Miss Kristin's chat postings had been postponed until tomorrow noon. So instead, I leave you with one of my favorite photos:

Fine. I know I am cheating but I had to. I am the only person I think in this universe that thinks Troy should be given another chance. At least another chance to get his punk-ass beaten up by Logan or Weevil.

Until K's chat is up with all her gossip goodness, I leave you with Veronica Mars goodies. All the taste, none of the calories. Check out Jason's interview and the heavy wedding band on his finger. Wow. No one can definitely miss that band.

Is It Rerun Time Again?

Before I tackle today's subject matter, I just wanted to say, "Thank God for the weekend!"

Friday was my first day off in 8 days. EIGHT! I really didn't want to get up for my mani/pedi with Jaime, but I did. I enjoyed the few hours hanging out with Jaime before she surrendered her single card for the exclusive married club.


As of yesterday, she's gotten herself hitched. It was a nice celebration. I hope to see them next week when they get back from Italy. Just quick enough to see them before Nilly and I have to fly off to Jacksonville.

Hmm, no more unhitched friends. I guess this time, all we have to worry about is getting pregnant. What pressure, right?

On another note, Diablo Blanco had finally emailed me. He finally found time to drop me a line and tell me that he's all fine and dandy behind the enemy lines. Hope his Iraqi trip would be hohum. I want him back safe in the arms of Clarissa and Alexis. Even if he's trading German sites for the Utah plains. At this point, he doesn't know what's worse. I told him as long as he's alive, he shouldn't be upset as to where he's headed.


I can't believe GG is on rerun already. WHY don't they just give us Jess' return? I want Jess back. Heck, I want Jess to actually clobber Logan! Okay, for all Logan lovers (*cough* Amy *cough*), Logan is 'looking' like a concerned boyfriend. Despite the awkward talk between Logan and Richard, I don't still buy the Logan act.

Speaking of Richard, how about last week's episode? I am a daddy's girl. Yes, I do admit it. I argue with my dad with as much passion as I love my old man but I can honestly tell you, Richard is doing a good job being a grandfather that is admitting he was wrong for undermining Lorelai's decision to get Rory back on the Yale track.

Part of me was upset at Lorelai for being as obstinate as her daughter. ASP is making the whole episode look more like a test of stubbornness more than anything else. I love this show, but my goodness! Let's get a character to eat some humble pie and get back to some real squabbling. When Zach and Lane are actually getting a plot faster than a Rory and Lorelai reconciling, I have to say I am not really feeling the love to collecting this season's DVD boxed set.

On to better things, VM spoilers are leading me to believe that Daddy Keith isn't going to be the new sheriff of Neptune. The Echolls trial (and Logan's arrest) takes me back to Season one. I am still trying to convince Nilly to allow me to open my VM set and just keep my Season 4 GG (and the season 5 GG coming out in December) as my Christmas presents. I just want to watch the whole VM season uninterrupted.

Anyway, here's this week's news. Enjoy!


Episode 6.10: He's Slippin' 'Em Bread... Dig?
Airdate: November 22, 2005

Zach is quite moody and even almost misses sound check. He says he doesn't like the usual set up of the band, he bought himself a wireless mic, he even introduces a new band member and throws the set list of songs to be played! Let's say the other band members are confused and don't know how to react. Will the band be able to perform with such a different mood and setting? Liz and people from her Renaissance Fair are at the Inn. Sookie also appears. Source: SpoilerFix.com

Episode 2.06: Rat Saw God
Airdate: November 9, 2005

The results of the sheriff's election are announced, but Veronica doesn't have much time to process the results after Abel Koontz (Christian Clemenson) asks her to locate his daughter, who disappeared after the $3 million payoff from Jake Kane. Meanwhile, Logan is arrested for Felix's murder -- and briefly shares a cell with his dad. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon has a cameo as a car-rental agency assistant manager. Clarence Wiedman: Christopher B. Duncan. Source: TV Guide Online

With Aaron Echolls (guest star Harry Hamlin) facing trial for Lilly's murder, the previously accused Abel Koontz appears to enlist Veronica's help in finding his missing daughter Amelia, leading to a confrontation with Kane Software's head of security. Meanwhile, Logan is arrested for the murder of biker Felix Tombs when a witness comes forward and meets with a surprise visitor while in jail. Later, Keith anxiously awaits the results of the race for Sheriff on election night. Source: UPN

Episode 2.10: One Angry Veronica
Airdate: December 2005

There is no time off for Veronica even if it's the Christmas break. She has to do jury duty. The case is about two 21-year-old men who were charged with aggravated assault for beating up a girl. Veronica will start exploring her university options. Sheriff Lamb reluctantly helps Keith on an investigation. It seems Mr. Mars is investigating the sheriff's department. He interrogates all deputies (including Leo and Sacks) but also Logan. Source: SpoilerFix.com

Taking A Breather and Other Random Facts

Hello! I am back. I do apologize for my absence. Things have been wonky in the Forest and it's only now that I've had taken a little down time... Like having 9 hours of sleep. It's a first in ages, folks, and I plan on doing it again on Sunday.

Today's my 7th straight day of working. Yes, I am cranky. I am irritable. But then, I knew it was eventually going to happen. Jaime and I are off to get our toes and nails painted Friday. I still don't know whether I should bring clothes to the rehearsal dinner or just go home and waste another quarter of a tank of gas and wait for the hubby to join us later on for the night's festivities. My only hopeful prayer? That the rain would hold up Saturday and Sunday... Just long enough that the wedding party doesn't have to stuggle through the rain. Thank goodness I just have to read scripture. I don't have to deal with flurry dresses and all.

Hmm, I don't know if this is worth anything but I am broken. Yep, broken. As K and Ames stew in their collective cold/flu problems, I tweaked my knee enough that I actually hobble. Whoever said that exercise (especially lunges) is good for you lied. It hurts like the dickens. Hopefully it would heal itself. It's been a week but I am hopeful. Tomorrow, I won't be able to do ny 2-miler but I hope the bike or the elliptical machine would ease some of the discomfort.

Met my new Philo Professor Monday. He's an old chap who likes repeating himself... Constantly. He's funny. Imagine Robin Williams with a less of a potty mouth. Anyway, he already told us that in his entire 39 years of collegiate teaching, he had only doled out A's to 4% of his student population. And that's a real uni, not a CC! We're not having midterms. The finals summarze our worldy Philosophical existence. So there goes my membership to Phi Delta Kappa since my card would be revoked. Such is life... Now if we could just get done with Hume. (Sidenote: Are any of you Monty Python Fans? Have you ever heard the Philosophers' Song? Yeah, Nilly's got that song stuck in my head now and it's all I hear while Dr Winters talks. Not a good idea).

Tok my History midterms yesterday. I did okay. Not as well as I was hoping to do. Tons of writing! Well, it's the last leg of the 20th-21st C. Maybe I'd be awake long enough to remember the Lewinsky scandal.

Took the English test 3 times at the OK!Cupid site. 3 TIMES! And despite taking the test thrice, I was given 3 different scores even though I gave the same answer every time. So here's what I got:

English Genius

Airdate: November 30, 2005

Kendall (Charisma) is going to share screen time with Trina (Alyson), along with Duncan and Logan as she tries to sell a Maserati for quick cash. And apparently, Charisma and Alyson will get a bit snippy with each other. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Ausiello on GG:
Question: Tell me it's not true! Luke can't have a (CENSORED) on Gilmore Girls. What next? Taylor and Michel are having an affair? The phrase "jump the shark" is coming to mind. — Megawatt

Ausiello: Let's not play the shark card — or the Taylor-Michel shagging card, for that matter — until we actually see how the story plays out on-screen, OK? And, for the record, I don't know for a fact that this mystery person — who turns up on Nov. 15, not Nov. 22 as first thought — is actually Luke's long-lost (CENSORED). But this much I can tell you: I hear the pivotal episode — written and directed by ASP herself — is one of the best of the year, if not ever. So, let's all take a deep breath and reserve judgment for the morning of Nov. 16, mmmmkay?

Question: There are seven of us at my office who love Gilmore Girls, and we would like your honest opinion on a few questions. 1) Do you think that Luke and Lorelai will end up together? 2) Do you think that the show will be renewed for a seventh season? 3) We've been very disappointed with the new season so far and want to know how the ratings compare to this time last year. Thanks! — Joanna, Carol, Terri, Liz, Donna, Kim and Meghan

Ausiello: OK, let me take these one at a time. 1) Yes. 2) Yes. 3) The ratings are actually up over this time last year. And sit tight, girls. The Gilmore you know and love is about to make a major comeback. I can feel it. Speaking of which, how fantastic was last night's AS-P-penned outing? Pretty freakin' fantastic. And I'm fairly certain Kelly Bishop is doing the best work of her career this season. God, that woman is gifted.

Question: I need some damn good Everwood spoilers! — Kara

Ausiello: This should satisfy you: Ephram and Amy will do the deed (read: the dirty deed) before the show goes on its winter hiatus in December. (Sorry, Reid.)

Question: Thank you so much for finally realizing how great Everwood is! Have you heard if they are going to bring in another love interest for Andy? — Rhonda

Ausiello: (SPOILER ALERT) They're not, and here's why: Nina is going to learn something about Jake in Episode 9 that'll send her straight into Andy's arms. (A big thanks to TV Guide's Ali Gazan for passing that scoop on to me under the condition that I give her full credit and bold her name. I don't care what anyone says, that girl oozes class.)

"Here Comes The Rain Again"

... and it's falling.

Today, the newscasters were calling for light drizzle and occasional fog patches.


When your intermittent wipers are steaming from working too hard, it's not a light drizzle.
When you feel your tires hydroplaning, it's not a light drizzle.
When cars are going 5-10 mph slower than the posted speed limit... it's called driving in Podunk.

My point is, weather sucks in my neck of the woods and I am still disappointed that the "colorful" fall we're due is turning into murky brown and black. There are few reds, not enough yellows and the greens are still in greens. Mark my words, we're going to have a late winter this year. I won't be surprised if we still have snow on the ground by Easter.

Anyway, day 2 of the long haul hasn't been that bad. My monthly maintenance on my insturment today went without a hitch, completing the 25 minute maintenance on time for once! God, I love it when things work to my advantage.

Then, while I was chatting with A, I got a call saying that my Philo class is right on track. The new Prof is a tenured and retired prof (of course, came out of retirement to 'edumacate' us CC students) that would be teaching the course until the end of the semester. Woot! I guess it means I am back to reading text that makes absolutely no sense at all. But, on the brighter side of things, that means that I actually don't have to retake the course unless I fail it!

The topping on my cake? The new EW magazine arrived in the mailbox. This time it's not torn or look like it had been leafed through. It's actually in pristine condition! Anyway, I just want to point out the "good stuff".

1. Page 21. A Butt Shot of Chicken Little. Just too cute.
2. Page 37. Secrets of Star Wars. Now, before y'all smack me on the head, check out the Ewan and Hayden photos. I think it's awesome.
3. Page 75. Logan VS Logan. I think EW was eavesdropping on out chats, chicas! EW does a split screen comparison of the Logans on GG and VM. Honestly, I still lean toward snakalicious over the cheesy grin. Hey K, why didn't you tell me that Shira was a DOOL alum?
Same page on the Soundbite box, we have Bright's soundbite on Everwood. Read it. I thought his delivery on this line was a definite roll on the floor.
4. Page 96. The Fright Stuff by Stephen King is an absolute read. From a man that hates Holloween, I love how he puts in his 2 cents' worth of ideas to make the ghoulish day pass with enough creepiness you'd realize why it's only celebrated once a year in the US. Bonus points to him: he gives the Red Cross a shoutout and a free advertisement to donate blood. Please, be a hero and donate.

Lastly, more spoilers for you to read. I've found more crap on GG and VM so enjoy!

Missing Blimp

Hello, y'all. I'm sorry that I've been off the radar the last couple of days. Things have been a little hectic and it won't be slowing down any time soon.

Professor Beaker has taken ill so my Philo course has been "Temporarily suspended until further notice". To a lot of people, this would be a cause for celebration. It is my misery. Since I've already finished half of the semester, I should not be punished by taking it again! Sadly, there are no other equal or substitute courses for it. The course has been paid for. I just want to get done with the class. Nilly just told me to hang tight. Pfff, me? Hang tight? Oh that's precious.

Finally got to see last week's GG thanks to Jackie. She's a life saver, you know. I agree with Amy. The Shira/Emily confrontation was so great it has to garner some Emmy nods. The sparkle kids? Annoying. Kirk's little ditty? Sadly, he does it well compared to the few I've seen. Gosh, he's got a pooch in him! Stop knocking those beer cans in, Kirk!

Last night's GG was also more to the caliber I am used to. Although Logan seemed to look like a stick was shoved up his butt while he was having the "conversation" with Richard, the whole scene was rather endearing. The Berkin bag discussion was rather hilarious. Emily was such a funny snoop. However, the clincher was Richard bringing over the doll house so he can talk to Lorelai. Precious. I love Richard and Lorelai's interaction. He truly loves her and doesn't put airs. I guess that's the Gilmore dynamic that lures me back in even in the worst of episodes.

Tonight, I can't wait to see VM. WOOT! It's the best celebration I can come up with since I'll be having a 10 day working stretch in front of me. By day 5, if you don't hear from me, send the distress signals!

Alright, here are the new Ausiello tidbits. Love 'em or leave 'em. Some are Spoilerfix info, too. Have fun!


Question: Any scoop on Gilmore Girls? Sorry, any poop on Gilmore Girls? — Eliza

Ausiello: Brace yourself: Christopher's coming back. No lie. Although Amy Sherman-Palladino initially said there were no plans to bring him back this season, sources confirm that the perpetual spoiler in the Lorelai-Luke romance resurfaces in the Nov. 22 episode after Lorelai gets a surprise call from him. Coincidentally, that's the same episode we meet a mysterious 13-year-old girl who, I'm told, will turn a certain Stars Hollow resident's life upside down. Rumor has it — MAJOR SPOILER ALERT — someone whose name rhymes with Duke may have a long-lost daughter. (That noise you hear is thousands of Gilmore fans organizing a protest outside ASP's house.)

Question: Love, love, loved the verbal ass kicking Emily gave Logan's mom on last Tuesday's Gilmore Girls. It just proves once again the brilliance behind that show. — Danielle

Ausiello: I knew you guys were going to eat that up. And not to take anything away from Kelly Bishop's sublime delivery, but major props must go out to Dan Palladino for scripting the classic smack-down. In case you missed any of it, I'm posting the entire monologue here. Feel free to commit it to memory and then recite it to the raging bitch in your life:

EMILY: Ah, yes. Well, let me tell you this, Shira — we are just as good as you. You don't think Rory is good enough for your son? As if we don't know Logan's reputation? We do. But he is welcome in our home anytime, and you should extend the same courtesy to Rory.… Now, let's talk about "your" money. You were a two-bit gold digger, fresh off the bus from Hicksville, when you met Mitchum at whatever bar you happened to stumble into. And what made Mitchum decide to choose you to marry amongst the pack of women he was bedding at the time, I'll never know, but hats off to you for bagging him. He's still a playboy, you know. Well, of course you know. That would explain why your weight goes up and down 30 lbs. every other month, but that's your cross to bear. But these are ugly realities. No one needs to talk about them. Those kids are staying together as long as they like. You won't stop them. Now enjoy the event.

Question: Is Jess going to be the one to get Rory to go back to Yale on Gilmore Girls? — Michelle

Ausiello: (SPOILER ALERT) No, that little mission falls on former Secretary of State Madeline Albright's capable shoulders.

Episode 6.09: Title Unknown 
Airdate: November 2005

Rory gets a call from Stuart Wultz, editor of the Stamford Eagle Gazette. She had left him a message in the hope to get references. It seems Rory is looking for a job in journalism. Stuart tells her what he tought she was like during her internship, and let's say it's quite different than what Herr Huntzberger said. Lorelai, Michael, Lane and Zach appear in the episode. Source: SpoilerFix.com


I am such a whore for advertising VM to everyone. But then, they have a staff that rocks. If you're not on the VM mailing list, you might have missed this so I am posting it for all to read.


Just a note to let you know that Rob Thomas commentary for the Pilot is available as a download on his web-site: slaverats.com in the downloads section. Look for "DVD_Commentary.mp3"

Thanks for your support.

Also, Veronica Mars will NOT be pre-empted again on the West Coast for Baseball.

All the best,

Alex Mercer
Director of Development
Rob Thomas Productions


Aren't they nice? Now do your own advertising. Spread the good word!

Question: I love Veronica Mars and it's all your fault. I never thought I'd enjoy a show about a young blonde chippy in high school solving mysteries, but you were right — it's fabulous! That said, give up the scoop, er, poop! — Mellie

Ausiello: How 'bout some visual Mars poop: Click here for a first look at Joss Whedon playing that testy rental-car manager in the Nov. 9 episode. And to see him in action with Kristen Bell, pick up the new issue of TV Guide magazine and turn to the Ausiello Report on page 10! Also, make sure to read Rob Thomas' latest Q&A with fans in today's Insider. There are a couple of good poop droppings in there.

Question: Did you see Kristen Bell on Leno last Wednesday? She wanted to change her name to Smurfette when she was a kid! That's got to get her some Ausiello love, right? She should be promoted to Mariska status for that, no? — Mouse

Ausiello: I didn't see it, but I heard all about it from my peeps (read: you guys!). And yes, her stock soared with that nifty revelation.

Episode 2.05: Blast from the Past

Rob Thomas revealed: Veronica's dog, Backup, will appear in this episode. Source: TV Guide Online

Deciding to give Jackie the benefit of the doubt since she's dating Wallace, Veronica tries to help Jackie determine who stole her credit card, leading Veronica to appear on a psychic's community access show to pursue a lead. Meanwhile, Wallace confronts his mother Alicia (guest star Erica Gimpel) about who his real father is. Later, Veronica learns of a voice mail recording from one of the students that died, made at the moment the bus crash. Feisty U.K. girl-band The Faders, featured on the "Veronica Mars" soundtrack, perform their single "No Sleep Tonight" at the Homecoming dance. Jeffery Sams guest stars as Jackie's father, Terrance Cook. Source: UPN

Veronica appears on a psychic's cable-access TV show as part of the investigation into who stole, used and returned Jackie's credit card. In other events, Wallace confronts his mom about his dad; Veronica bugs Sheriff Lamb's office, and she discovers a voice-mail message left by one of the bus passengers just as the crash occured. Source: TV Guide Online


Question: I have been hearing a lot of things about the possibility of Hannah (Sarah Drew) leaving Everwood. What's the real story? — Ashley

Ausiello: (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT) It's true: Hannah will decide to leave town after receiving tragic news in the Nov. 10 episode, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Sarah Drew on Everwood. I can't stress that enough. I also can't stress enough how freakin' unbelievable this show has been this season!

Question: Everwood spoilers, please! — Janine

Ausiello: I hear that Nina — in an effort to mend Andy and Jake's fractured friendship — will suggest they go see a shrink together. I hope they take her advice because that would be just plain hysterical. Also, Simon Rex is going to guest star in the Nov. 17 episode as a friend of Jake's. Apparently, the pair go on a bike trip that takes a near fatal turn. Oh, and don't look for Madison to resurface anytime soon. Sarah Lancaster has replaced Polly Shannon as the female lead in What About Brian?, J.J. Abrams' mid-season drama on ABC.

Me And Weddings

'Allo, meine schazee. I hope you all missed me as much as I've missed you all. I've had a really psycho weekend so bear with me before I lay on the Monday spoilers.

First and foremost, I went to a bridal shower this weekend. Despite the long drive (almost 2 hours), I enjoyed myself as much as I could. I love my Jaime. She's one of the cooler peeps I've met since I've gotten to Podunk-ville. Suffice to say, I promised her that I would join her at her shower (since I missed the first one thrown by her matron of honor) no matter where it's held.

Well, this shower was thrown by her Church so imagine my excitement going to it!

The shower was rather creative. Instead of having finger foods, the Church made Italian meals with sayings in Italian to go with it (They are going to Florence for their Honeymoon). When the 'party' started, we played several gamesLater on, Jaime's soon-to-be nieces read a nice poem. It was hilarious in the bizarre kind of way. Let's say I am glad I wasn't the bride being celebrated in this occasion.

It wasn't entirely a snooze fest but I was ready to leave after two hours. Jaime, fortunately, felt the same. So, an hour later, we were back at her fiancee's place watching the UC-ND game. Of course, I was rooting for my Irish who lost to UC on a TD. Minutes before that, Nilly's PSU died a painful death similar to the ND's. Woe was us.

Honestly, for a Saturday I wished I spent at home, I definitely failed at the task miserably.

Sunday almost followed a similar pattern. Not being able to sleep in, Nilly and I headed to B&N before noon to have my usual breakfast of hazelnut grande, skinny with whip and plain toasted bagel with cream cheese. I had to speed-read through my gossip rags (which didn't take long since it's the usual fare of Nick/Jessica break-up and HB/Katie preggy-boom updates). I downed my caffeine quickly so that we could head to the mall for our haircuts. Suffice to say, I am back to being the caramel covered skunk while the hubby decided to go vanilla on the 'do.

An hour later, we were cruising the mall for my wedding outfit.

Yes, I am a procrastinator. I haven't bought my outfit yet!

But it's not from lack of trying. It's from lack of fashion.

I cannot find anything appropriate for the event. I definitely didn't want to go black because it's an afternoon wedding. So, the prom looking outfits were out. My next best is trying to find something with "color". OH. MY. GOD. My choices were skank teen or stinky old grandma outfits.

I mean, whatever happened to couture? Is it because I am in cow-tipping land that I cannot have outfits that at least resemble a vintage Valentino or a dressed up Chanel?

So, I decided I was going to go suit style. After trying to find pants that are size 12-Short (and yes, I found some... which I still have to hem since it's so long) and a nice sparkly camisole top, I decided to end my shopping streak there. I didn't even bother searching for the matching coat top. The one that was "matching" the outfit I bought made me look like a defensive end in a football game.

Again, when did shoulder pads come back to fashion?

Have I not shopped in so long that I am actually behind the (shopping) power curve?

Does that mean I need to stop looking for clothes in Old Navy and American Eagle? (BTW, AE is the clothing sponsor to VM. Remember when they used to dress the Creekers? Miss those days! Goes to show that not everyone can fit in a Hollister top or bottom.)

I so hope that it would be a long time before I get to be part of a wedding. This whole wedding outfit thing stressed me out. Hmm, maybe I should purchase a shawl or something before I give the church something else to talk about other than the couple getting married.

Okay, you've heard my rant for today. Here are the spoilers from KV's site at E!Online:

From Irene: Although I absolutely love snarky Logan-Veronica, will we get to see some good romantic scenes with these two this season?

Fear not, it won't be long before LoVe is on speaking terms and spending time together--less than a month. And it's less than a season before we see some serious sparkage flying once more. But there are some devastating things that must happen first. Just you wait. You're gonna freak.

From anson: Gilmore scoop, please!

Rory turns 21 in a few weeks--whooo! Vegas, baby! Hookers and blow! Or, um, actually, Stars Hollow. Because grandmama is planning a huge party for her. Everyone will be there, including--drumroll, please--Luke and Lorelai, though they still won't be back to normal, but it's coming. (Thank the bejesus for that! I'm beyond over the rift.) Also, Lane and Logan finally meet, and, speaking of Logan, Richard and Emily are going to find out that he and Rory have been knocking penny loafers.

From valerie: I have to know, is Jess returning to Gilmore Girls going to be the end of Rory and Logan?

--Adding on: Jess' book is entitled "The Subsect". Again, anyone have an inkling of what it's about? Fiction? Non? Romance? Farce?

From william: Amy and Ephram, Amy and Ephram, Amy and Ephram!

Amy and Reid, Amy and Reid, Amy and Reid! Sorry to be the bearer of bad chants, but that's the way this puppy is headed. Reid ain't gay, and Ephram, for now, ain't in the running.

Ooh, more advertisement. Visit Ally's page for some Wentworth, Jensen and Chad hot photos. I know I am riveted.

Gilmore Girls Chatter

This was posted a couple of days ago on the Kristin Boards:

Guess This: Pissy Polly:

First, I must say, this person is someone I ABSOLUTELY ADORE. But I hear she's quite a handful on set these days with her "GET ME OFF THIS DAMN SHOW ALREADY" 'tude.

Miss Polly, as we'll call her, is talented, beautiful and SHOULD have a fabulous movie and award-show career, so I guess she's more than ready to move on (of course, it doesn't help that she LOATHES one of her main co-stars with every fiber of her being).

Thing is, though, we fans would be DEVASTATED should this particular series go away.

(P.S. It is NOT anyone with my own first name. Tsk, tsk if you even thought that.)


Well, the boards were all a-chatter and the two big guesses were Jennifer Garner and (surprise!) Lauren Graham.

Monday, Kristin was 'confirming' that LG is the Pissy Polly.

Sad, isn't it?

Anyway, Ausiello said the book Jess Mariano wrote is entitled "The Subsect". Hints on what it is about?

Anyone hear any good GG spoilers? I am assuming ASP is reeling in the spoilers out there since most boards I've been to mention the miscommunication between Richard and Logan. What's that all about?

Tiding Over

In my cloud of distraction yesterday, I forgot to post the following information.

Before the weekly rag mags get replaced, go seek Entertainment Weekly's Photo issue released this past weekend. A really awsome Dave Grohl photo is in it. (Hint, hint, Amy).

Also, Inside TV has a two-page story on the CMM/SB break up. For those that were upset with me when I said the Chadster spent a night in Paris, listen up! It's true! He did bang the blonde slut in Australia. Take that, nonbeliever!

In the same mag, there is a two-page layout on a Day in the Set of Veronica Mars. Teddy Dunn was interviewed and apparently, Miss Kristen Bell is his first on-screen kiss. Isn't that cute?

Well, I hope tonight's GG makes up for the last 3 episodes that feel like one long filler ep.

And if GG is a failure, here are a few links that may cheer you up.

The first is a LoVe video by Saliva entitled, "Rest In Pieces".

The first is a snarkastic Lamb/Veronica video set to the tune of, "Close To You".

Have a great Tuesday!

I Had Me A Duckie

I had been walking through a fuzzy cloud all day.

All day!

My girlfriend, Sharlz, emailed me and I was very excited. She and I had not seen each other since I left the Islands but we've gotten really close with snail mail and emails.

So, imagine my surprise when we talked about a mutual friend, PJ, who's the head leader of the Chicknapping Syndicate (along with Jake). Apparently, PJ had a crush on me. For a long time!

PJ's dad just died recently and Sharlz was there for the wake. During the somber moment, Sharlz learned about this little discovery. She didn't go into detail about the whole confession thing but she told him that I am married! He apparently was stunned with this discovery.

I was rather surprised since PJ, Tats and Jardz had hung out more often that Sharlz did with him and the girls never told him about my current state of wedded bliss.

All I could do today was stammer.

PJ is a sweetheart. I admit, I never saw him as romantic material but I could see myself dating him if I ever finished college in the Philippines. He graduated from the Science Section (which is the Honors section of Boys High) and is very outgoing, friendly and convivial.

I thought for the longest time that he'd gotten married and had kids since most of our circle of friends have kids and have moved on to the marital stage of life (I think 2 of our friends are divorced.). Apparently, he never lost the hope of me coming back or something.

I don't know if I am delusional, thinking it's rather cute finding out that someone actually out there didn't think I was the Ice Princess in high school.

Apparently, he was my Duckie and it took me this long to figure it out.

PJ, for all it's worth, you've always had a special place in my heart.


Little GG ditty which I hope is wrong...

From ktpez: Like, omigod, hi! Can we, like, please get some serious Gilmore scoopage? Or I might, like, die.

It won't be long before Richard looks to Lorelai for help with getting Rory back on track. He's starting to feel guilty about letting her drop out of school and wants to get her back to Yale as soon as possible. He even pumps Logan (...mmmm, pause for visual) for any useful information. My guess is Rory returns to Yale by the next season, assuming there is one.

Filler Blog... Part Deux

I have a rather miserable day today and the weather's not cooperating. I was supposed to meet up with K today but the leaves haven't changed and it's a holiday shopping weekend, so that's a no-go.

Instead, I will leave you with warm, happy thoughts (and hopefully a mug of tea,coffee or cocoa in hand) and Ally's site with a Weevil/Wallace photo and screen caps of Finn, Logan and Colin to boot.

Thanks, Ally!

"Poof! You're a Macchiatto!"

That line was so perfect.

A snarkastic (thank you, K) Ronnie tells Jackie to basically jack off where someone actually cares. It's rather endearing that Jackie ended up being Wallace's current flavor, but worse things could happen.

Worse things like Ronnie being asked to solve a 'suicide'. Like feeling bad that kids from the bus died or that Meg was in a coma or that she, in fact, was alive thanks to a Lilly apparition weighed down on V's shoulders.

At this point, I was feeling rather empathetic to our heroine as her current beau just waltzes in and out of the scenes like nothing had happened. I don't think Duncan was being apathetic. I think he just knows that "crap" happens. He's just thankful that V wasn't part of that crap group.

But before venturing on to other Ronnie related incidents, I want to talk about Papa Mars, Keith.

How cool was it that this man, someone who has gotten some fame after writing a book and solving a case goes back to running for public office? Should we thank Deputy Asshole for lighting Keith's fire? Should we thank slimy Woody Guthrie for offering him the job?

Altough I am inclined to agree (with K) that Woody may be the sleeper killer/troublemaker of Season 2, akin to Aaron Echolls, I am witholding judgement. I think Kendall has more motives to get Neptune all riled up, not just because she's shacking up with the LoVe shack but because she is an opportunistic beeyotch. I won't be surprised if she has a connection to the Woody, too.

Anywhoo, where was I? Oh yeah, Ronnie interviewing K. Smith. LOVE IT! Kevin as Dean is so funny, since he played Dante (Clerks) to the T. From the running commentary to the excited gestures, he might as well have called his performance "Clerk 2: Dante the Fatty". It's true though that Kev is on a diet, and had lost 30 pounds. Silent Bob may be Sexy Bob the next time we see him around.

From her interview with the mini-mart clerk, Ronnie realizes that life's too short to just mope around. So what does she do? She shacks up with Duncan for some "cuddle time". This time, no GHB. Just straight up romancing.

Ronnie, I think, wasn't prepared to meet the emotional demands of being physical with someone she loves. Sneaking out, she is met by none other than her former flame, Logan.

And boy, did sparks fly.

Ronnie getting her shoes on in the hallway wasn't the best place to confront her once nemesis-boyfriend. Despite his cutting words, Ronnie still cares for the punk. She's saddened by the fact that he doesn't seem to reciprocate the same feelings.

More melodrama follows.

Of course, our lil Nancy Drew figured out that the bus driver wasn't attempting to commit suicide. He was leaving his family for the girl he fell in love with.

Such tragedy.

It's rather unfortunate, though, that Ronnie's name had somehow gotten to the bus driver's palm and into Sheriff Lamb's short list of suspects.

I think this is going to be what would get Keith back into office.

I hope V gets cleared.

I hope Logan gets to realize what a bitch Mrs. Casablancas is after all this and get things straight with V.

I wish it already was Wednesday and I could watch the next installment to this show.

Tune in next week for another round in the life of Veronica Mars.

Continuing With the Obsession

Wednesday means SPOILER day!

Since Chad and Sophia stole the last Rob Thomas interview, I am presenting the Ausiello interview FIRST before giving you all the lovely scoopage.

Ally, Prison Break will be on hiatus for three weeks. There still isn't any word WHEN it is going to be post January, when 24 will be back.

Jackie, PB is worth watching. It is very intriguing. If you're into a lot of intrigue and puzzle plots, this is for you. And yes, Wentworth Miller is worth watching. Yummy eye candy.

Anyway, here's Ausiello and Rob Thomas!


Question: How many episodes will Alyson Hannigan be doing this season? I've only heard of one so far. And will we see Aaron Echolls' trial at all? — Shannon

Thomas: It's difficult to work around Alyson's "other" show's schedule, but we've got a great story line for her in Episode 9. So far that's all we have planned.

Question: I love Mac (Tina Majorino). Will she be back on the show this season? Please say yes. — Shannon

Thomas: She will. She has a small appearance in Episode 4, then a larger appearance in Episode 9. And there will be several more after that.

Question: The Season 2 premiere was awesome, but I have a question: Was Logan who Veronica thought was going to be at the door? There's an ongoing debate about this. Some say she acts surprised that it's him, but others say she just acts that way because she can tell something's wrong with him. So which is it? — Carli

Thomas: It's because he's beaten and bloody.

Question: Veronica sounded a mite confused when she said Logan's name as he stood in the shadow. Did she think he was someone else at first? — Jon

Thomas: See above.

Question: How long do we have to watch Veronica and Duncan together? We all want her back with Logan! — Mallissia

Thomas: You don't all want to see that. I read the message boards. But I must say, on a personal level, that I think Veronica and Logan are a lot of fun when they're testy with each other.

Question: Are we going to see Wallace's mom this season? Is there any chance of wedding bells for Keith? — Sharon

Thomas: You are going to see plenty of Mrs. Fennell starting in Episode 2. As for the second part of the question — it wouldn't be any fun if I told you.

Question: What kinds of sparks are going to fly when Alyson's and Charisma's characters confront each other later in the season? — Kevin

Thomas: Great. Multicolored. Kick-ass sparks.

Question: Are you surprised by how fanatical viewers are for this show after just one season? — David

Thomas: Yes. It never ceases to blow me away, though I am a guy who can get obsessive about TV myself. I've probably watched the British version of The Office 20 times. Same with Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, The Sopranos. There was a period when I forced everyone who came to my house to watch The Office pilot. It's heady stuff to know that there are some people who feel similarly about Veronica.

Question: Love the show and I'm in my thirties! I'm wondering if you will please use Kristen's singing abilities again? Last season's rendition of "One Way or Another" was awesome! — Susan

Thomas: Nothing's on the books for her to sing right now, but we wouldn't shy away from it.

Question: I'm 17 and I love your show. Since almost everyone who knows good television says that VM is the new Buffy, are you planning to do a musical some time in the future, like Buffy did in Season 6? Kristen has a good voice, so I hope you do one. — Henry

Thomas: Jason [Dohring], Francis [Capra] and Teddy [Dunn] say they don't sing. Percy [Daggs III] can a bit. I don't think I have enough singers in the cast to do a musical episode. If we were to do one, look for it in Season 6.

Question: Were Duncan and Lilly Kane twins? As Duncan, Logan, and Veronica are now seniors, Lilly's death would have occurred during their sophomore year. Was Lilly also a sophomore? Or is this one of those TV questions nobody is supposed to ask, similar to the way the 90210 kids did their junior year twice? — E.B.

Thomas: Lilly was one year older than Duncan — a grade ahead of Veronica, Logan and Duncan. And, hey, Veronica is going into her senior year right on schedule, and we only plan on having one of them.

Question: Do you already know who is responsible for the bus going over the cliff, or do you have several possibilities so you can make a definite decision later on? — Kari

Thomas: We absolutely know.

Question: Are there any other guys you could see Veronica with, or is it just Duncan/Logan for now? — Lisa

Thomas: Veronica's love life will be tricky and rocky. That's all I'd like to give away at this point.

VERONICA MARS- (Ask Ausiello)

Question: In the 9/21 AA when you pointed out the enigma within the mystery on Veronica Mars, were you talking about Logan telling Veronica "I'm gonna miss you" before she got on the doomed bus? Or were you referring to the intense confab between Woody and Terrence Cook? — Heather

Ausiello: None of the above, Heather. Maybe this was too obvious to be dubbed an "enigma within the mystery," but shouldn't we be focusing on who was supposed to be on that bus as opposed to who actually was? Hmmm....

GILMORE GIRLS (Courtesy of Spoilerfix)

Episode 6.06: Welcome to the Dollhouse 
Airdate: October 18, 2005

10/04 - Richard tries to get information from Logan about Rory's future plans, but Logan mistakenly thinks that Richard is asking when the two of them plan to marry. Lorelai is in favor of Taylor's plan to change all the Stars Hollow street names back to their original historic names, until she learns that the street where the Dragonfly Inn is located was once known by a disgusting name. Rory makes a surprising confession to Logan. Richard finally faces the fact that he should never have let Rory drop out of Yale, and shows up at Lorelai's house to talk things over. Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Yanic Truesdale, Liz Torres and Sean Gunn also star. Source: The WB

Episode 6.08: Twenty-one is the Loneliest Number
Airdate: Fall 2005

10/04 - Luke is upset that Lorelai isn't focusing more on her house. Painters are soon to be ready to paint it but instead of choosing her colors, Lorelai helps others choose colors for their houses or businesses. Two girls ask who are on the soccer team of a school Luke went to ask him to become the sponsor of their team. Source: SpoilerFix.com


Question: So there's a rumor going around that Sarah Drew (Hannah) is leaving Everwood. True, or are the pesky producers just toying with us? — Beth

Ausiello: (SPOILER ALERT) It's true that a forthcoming personal tragedy will get Hannah thinking about bolting Everwood, but I doubt she'll actually follow through on it. She better not follow through on it.

Question: Regarding the big twist you teased about Everwood's Reid, the WB promo monkeys already revealed that Amy's crush was gay in the preview to last week's premiere. — Heidi

Ausiello: (SPOILER ALERT) Who said that was the twist I was referring to? Huh? Who?

I don't know if Ausiello is pulling our leg on this one...

Question: I know it's not your favorite, but any word on how Chad and Sophia's breakup is gonna affect One Tree Hill? — Becca

Ausiello: Let's just say the situation is, um, challenging for all concerned. I dispatched a probe droid to Wilmington, N.C., to capture all awkward moments on tape. We should have that streaming video for you shortly.

A Prison Break Sandwich

Can you believe PB is going to be on hiatus while the baseball season attempts to wrap itself up? I really don't care if Reunion does (despite Will Estes' presence, I think this show is getting the cancellation from the old VCR), but Prison Break? Come on!

Anyway, here's some Prison Break, Kitchen Confidential and VM news courtesy of Kristin. No GG; nothing new to report on that homefront.

From perseeu: Is Vartan really starring on Kitchen Confidential?

Yes! He shoots this Friday and Monday, playing a French (Oui! Oui!) chef. And by the way, Kitchen Confidential has not been canceled. It's going on hiatus for baseball and a few outlets erroneously reported it was off the schedule for good. Tune into E! News at 7 p.m. on Tuesday to find out about another show Bradley Cooper might show up on...

From havealittlefaith: Will C.C.'s character serve any purpose other than being Logan's new gal-pal?

I have my suspicions...One theory floating around is that she may have wanted Veronica dead. Not to mention, why did Logan say he was going to "miss" her? All speculations, but something to think about!

From melissa: Prison Break is my favorite new show on TV. Is Michael married, or is it just a rumor?

I'm 99 percent certain Michael is married, and 100 percent certain that if he is, that wife is not exactly what you expect. I hear she's a bit of an exhibitionist and has an ulterior motive. By the way, how amazing was the last episode? I nearly had a heart attack watching it! And sadly, after tonight, PB goes on hiatus until after baseball. Wenty, I'll miss you... (me, too!)

Excuse Me While I Celebrate

Lights, Camera, Wolverine!
Imagine my surprise when I finally got to see new photos of Logan in X-Men 3. I was definitely thrilled. Although the plot behind this drama-filled movie is not being released, I am waiting, blind-faith and all, for its release this May.

At first, I was upset when IMDB didn't indicate Rogue (Ana Paquin) was in the movie. Then, I found through the IGN site that she was in it! So, rest assured, on my end, that she, her relationship with Bobby (Shawn Ashmore) and Logan are in tact. I am saddened that Pyro isn't in it or that Gambit is not going to be introduced despite the addition of characters like The Beast and Kitty Pride.

Kitty Pride and Iceman

On to other things... Veronica Mars, that is...

Remember my promise not to release any more VM goodness? Well, I lied. Actually, I didn't. I promised not to release anything that isn't press released, so with UPN releasing this information, I know it's quite accurate:

Episode 2.03: Cheatty Cheatty Bang Bang
Airdate: October 12, 2005

10/01 - Cassidy "Beaver" Casablancas believes that his sexy stepmother Kendall (guest star Charisma Carpenter) is cheating on his father, so he hires Veronica to investigate the situation, but neither are prepared for what they find. While Keith and Alicia (guest star Erica Gimple) vacation in Chicago, Wallace begins to date Jackie, although Veronica isn't a big fan of Wallace's new girlfriend. Later, at Logan's house, Veronica learns something that changes everything she thinks she knows about the town's recent tragedy. Source: UPN

The Do and Don't Rules of Dating

For some odd reason, this disappeared off my page so I am reloading it.

First and foremost, Kristin of E!Online did Hollywood a favor by giving some advice on her weekly column. She touched subjects like Chad and Sophia (DON'T) and Alexis and Milo (DO). She so far encouraged Hollywood relationships like Lauren Graham who's dating Marc Blucas! Now they're a cutie couple if I say so myself.

The second thing that amused me was Britney's Baby Scrapbook. I was laughing so hard, it had to be true. But it's a spoof. But hits close to home. So close, I could see Brit/KevKev respond the same way. (It so sounds like a Daria Skit.)

Lastly,did you catch the latest Olive Garden commerical? It's got Marty! MARTY! I was ecstatic. See how far our Gilmore boys go? I was almost as elated seeing Wayne Wilcox as much as I did see Milo V in the Verizon (was it?) mobile advertisement. Then there's Brandon Roush as Superman. Hmmm.

Alright, I will try and post something more substantial later.
