yes, me as well 8-) the only reason I watch "the mentalist" anymore is to see Patrick Jane all dressed to the nines in his waistcoat and suit while he drinks his tea :P

what I really die for tho, besides the pea-coat ;) , is a man in a wool cap

I bought my DH one for his birthday and I scold him when he forgets to wear it :lol:

I'm going to vote with Jodie here. I LOVE a guy in an overcoat. LOVE. I bought Mr. A a beautiful cashmere one for Christmas about 5 years ago. (Okay, so really it was a present for me, cause him in his suit with an overcoat would have been a visual treat for me everyday on the way to work.) And he hated it. Apparently, he doesn't like long coats. Took it back to the store and traded it for a lovely leather jacket. Sigh. Don't get me wrong, I love the leather jacket look too, but he already had a similar one. Pout. And as for the guyliner/no guyliner debate, I like it, but if Mr. A decided to wear it in everyday life, I would have to just say no. Johnny Depp? Hell yes. The guys decorating the Flat walls? Hell yes. Mr. A in his pirate costume for Halloween? Hell yes. Otherwise, day to day? Probably not.

AND FINALLY, I hate hate hate that brown bubble jacket monstrosity of Ron's. HATE. Did I mention that I HATE it. Always have, always will.


Yeah, guyliner does not work in every situation. It has to be a carefully thought out fashion accessory.

Guyliner appropriate:

Guyliner would not be appropriate:

Um... I just scrolled through 5 pages of Ewan photos and not one of them would have been guyliner inappropriate... He just has one of those faces, I guess.

were they recent pics of Ewan? I'm not saying he looks bad wearing it, but if I can tell right away that he is, then I'd rather he didn't *shrugs* plus, ya know, guy-liner has an age limit, IMO :?

confession: I pass up almost all of Richard's "guy of gisborne" pics b/c I'm not a fan of the guy-liner :? (the leather and long-ish hair don't help my cause either :P )

Well, 'leather' is a kind word for what they dressed him in. His shirt looks like it was made out of trash bags. :? BUT he's the only remotely interesting character or decent actor on the show, so I forgive the shitty costume. And because of the skinny pinstriped trousers. Those are a-ok. It's also kind of fun watching him play a bad guy with a soft side instead of a slightly assholish misunderstood guy.

ETA: Guy's mullet is not my favorite hairdo of all time, but I do feel an overwhelming desire to wrap the little curls in the back around my fingers... :?

There were some new Ewan photos in there, but he still looks 30 years old, so the guyliner would still work on him.

Mr. A is going out of town this weekend for a 5 day work trip. That means I'll have peace and quiet (hopefully) after the kids go to bed. I'm planning to use my time wisely and check out North & South. And I'm also going to say here that I read the unrelated John Jakes Civil War North and South series of books long ago and admit that the TV miniseries is where I started my crush on Patrick Swayze.

I watch it like twice a week anyway. I'm totally up for it so long as it doesn't interfere with Vampire Diaries.

Confession: I've never seen the civil war thinger. :?

I thought this was required TV viewing in the mid-80s? (I know that some of you were too young to turn the TV on anything but Sesame Street at that point. No need to rub it in to your elders.)

I never saw it either; Patrick Swayze has never really interested me :? I do have the book, just haven't read it yet (I like a lot of other stuff by the same author, so I picked it up at a sale ;) )

Haha! I was young-ish when it was on, but not old enough to give a hoot. I had a crush on Jack Wagner at the time, so if HE had been in it I'd totally have watched.

Image

I think I'd actually gone looking for the civil war drama when I found the BBC version. The civil war one was not available for instant viewing and I have a penchant for English costume dramas and the rest is history.

I'll have to look when I get home. I might actually have this it on DVD somewhere. I think my mom bought it for me a couple years ago. . . .

And yeah, I remember watching Jack Wagner on General Hospital. Everyday.

Not going to lie, every time someone around here pimps North and South, I think of the 80s miniseries and I can't get any further than that. I remember watching that on TV with my grandparents back in the day! Yikes. I am sure this N & S is worthy, I just haven't gotten there yet. And I will apparently be in the minority here, but I don't see what everyone else sees in the lead guy...maybe I need to watch it to get it? :roll:

Snowing and blowing snow here today...schools are canceled and Mr G and I are both working from home. This is great except that he signed on before me so he is in the office and I am at the kitchen table. Not exactly the most comfy chair for getting a lot done, so I am working...folding laundry. Working some more, putting dinner in the crock pot. Can't have me working in an un-ergonomically appropriate work space for TOO long! ;)

Yes.


Yup. That's what happened to me too. Although I didn't really get it until I watched the episodes of Vicar of Dibley he was in. I don't even know how to describe him in it, but I liked it! :D
