Stop the Presses

Let's have a chat about a coupla things that I'm tardy to the party on, shall we? Meet me at camera three.

How did I not know about this website until yesterday morning? Seriously? A whole site dedicated to the red-carpet???? If you have been reading MerciBlahBlah for any length of time, I think you know how I feel about a red carpet rundown, and an entire website of red carpet?! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!! Holy cow, quoting Jabberwocky takes me back to high school, when we sang that song in concert choir. Suck on THAT, Gleeks.

Damages. The TV show, you know, with Glenn Close? That's been on apparently for something like 4 or 5 seasons, and I'm just now jumping on board? Tom and I have been Netflixing it for about a week, and we're more than halfway through season two.

We are INHALING three or four episodes a night, and tonight? Tom has to work late, so no watchy for Shan, and someone needs to call Candy Finnegan or Jeff Van Vonderan, because I am pretty sure I'm having cold sweats from withdrawal.

Can I just say that Glenn Close is so frigging wicked in this - GLEEFUL in her wickedness? wickedry? wickedatude? ANYWAY, she is so bad she is almost good. And also? I really think they should change the name of the show from Damages to Every Fucking Person In Damages Is A Big Fat Lying Liar. Because they are. It's ridiculous. But does it deter me from watching? HELL no.

I need to hear from you if you are a Damages fan - SANS SPOILERS PLEASE. I just need to find out who My People are on this one.

Oh, and one final note? This outfit is my official New Fall Favorite. It's easy peasy lemon squeezy and pretty damn comfy, and I think the scarf makes it a little more fancy pants. Because when you're wearing fake leather, you need to push them into fancy pants territory sometimes. You just do.

Sweater/Pants/Belt As Bracelet: Target
Tank: Wal Mart
Boots: Libby  Edelman, TJ Maxx
Scarf: Gift from my sis - I think it's from Turkey (the country, not the bird)
Earrings: World Market

I watched that show for the first 2 seasons and then it became impossible to find out when or where the heck it was playing. I have a feeling that the network we were watching on decided to take it off. Big disappointment because it was great.

On a side note, do you like Netflix? I'm starting to hate our chosen TV package and am thinking about changing over.
