Rough around the edges

I have to say it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to whoever it was over at Grey's Anatomy for putting Chris O'Donnell on the show.

(And I have to sneak a teeny apology in for Mr W, because, well, I was a little enthused at the sight of the new character on the show...semi-shouting "Yes!  OMG, that's Chris O'Donnell!!" as I pumped my arms up into the air, semi-rising off the couch, suddenly realizing, yes, oops, I did that and I said that out loud.  Sorry.)

I have always liked him, but thought he had a little too much of a boyish look about him, and there he was, tucked into the edge of the show, looking like a man.   When Meredith furiously took up her knitting again at the sight of him, I mentally did it too, except my yarn, it started to smoke...McDreamy who??

Bless you, costume designer, or whoever it was, that made scruffy the norm there.  Surely someone over at Gillette is having palpitations over this, that so many attractive men on a high-rated show are not shaving.   

It's fantastic.  

I'm not saying there are no merits to a freshly-shaved face, but a scruffy one just has a charm all its own.   It invites you to touch it.  It makes you wonder, is that gonna tickle, up against my neck?

I will definately be tuning in next Sunday.

And on Friday morning, after he leaves for work, I'm throwing out my husband's razors.

Better move on, calm down...how about the Six?

Saturday Six - Episode 103  

1. Assuming you have a DVD player and a show you usedto enjoy becomes available on DVD...what is the deciding factor on whether or not you'll actually buy it?  I like owning DVD's,yet I don't own any of my favorite shows.  Many of them are on as reruns, so I catch them that way.  I never really think to look for them on DVD, now that you mention it.  Some shows, I might rent to catch up on or see what the hype is about, like Lost.     

2. What do you find generally more offensive: the average prime time television show or the people who want their own personal standards of decency to be the guidelines the networks must follow?  Hmm.  Most average prime time tv shows are already so watered down, they are hardly truly offensive.  The people who want to bend the networks to their will are more offensive, I think, because I don't care if they don't want the word "panties" uttered on network tv, but they seem to think I should.  They get all crazed about something they have control over--if you don't like it, change the channel, or turn the tv off, don't launch some campaign against the network over "panties."   

3. If you were in charge of the FCC, which of the following would be your priority when it comes to decency on the airwaves: cutting down on violence, sex or profanity?  I don't know.  Sex?  It's everywhere, and I find myself having to change the channels during commercials.  (I'm no prude, but sometimes, I feel like it when the little ones are around...that orgasmic shampoo from Clairol, whoa, a winner in the "what's that all about, Mommy?" dept.

4. Take this quiz (if you haven't already!): What horrible Edward Gorey Death will you die?

You will sink in a mire. You like to think you're normal, but deep down you really just want to strip off your clothes and roll around in chicken fat.

Uhm, okaaay.  Next!

5. One of those crazy remodeling shows appears at your door one day and offers to redo any room of your house or apartment for free, but that it can only be one single room that gets a makeover. Would you let them in, and if so, which room would you choose and why?  The family room or our bedroom.  Places everyone spends lots of time, socializing...and getting on each other's nerves.  I am the Pied Piper of the children...whatever room I'm in, they slowly trickle into too.  There is no escape, so I may as well be comfortable. At least once a night, Mr W bellows "OUT!  All of you!!" (including me, sometimes :p)  Coincidentally, these are also the rooms with the tvs. lol

6. READER'S CHOICE QUESTION #86 from cdmmw2: Do you recall your first kiss? Did you think that kissing was worth the hype??  I recall my first kiss being kind of embarrassing.  I pushed him away from me, off my porch, and he nearly fell.  I was appalled, in an 'eww' way.  Poor Mr W, luckily he recovered, we tried again another night, and I figured out it wasn't 'eww' at all.  There's nothing like making out...wait a minute.  Didn't I start this Six to calm down??  Mmmwuah!

I'm not a Grey's Anatomy girl... more of a Nip/Tuck girl... but I may have to watch because Chris is on and he's scruffy!  YAY!!!!!   I love a five o'clock shadow!

Sorry I'm just now catching up!

What a pitiful display of objectification.

At least now I know what Ms. Lovely is watching while I'm slaving away on the mean streets of Pleasantville.

"...and this is where I sit from 1800 to 2000..."

Great entry, and yes, Grey's Anatomy is a must see these days!  Definetely one of the better "hospital" shows since ER's early days...   Michelle

You know, I have yet to watch Grey's Anatomy. From the sounds of it I really need to though!
