Baby hits the big time! [Mar. 19th, 2017|05:53 pm]
It was announced on Friday that Michael has a role in "Guardians of the Galaxy 2." Yay! The role has not been named. People are speculating about Adam Warlock, Richard Rider etc but I don't know enough of this universe to hazard a guess. Whoever he's playing, this is great for him; this will likely be the biggest hit movie of the year. And Michael deserves every bit of success.

Quote from Michael's facebook live video this week: "I'd do Anderson Cooper. He's super-handsome."

Ankle, Gilmore Girls and wicked Tommy [Feb. 16th, 2017|06:56 pm]
Five months after I broke the ankle, I continue to go to physiotherapy three times a week. The progress sometimes seems very slow, but I am getting there. Today, the physiotherapist reminded me of how swollen the foot was when it first came out of "the boot." Now I can see veins and when I get massaged, the physio can feel bones! The foot is no longer a big fleshy brick.

One of my more comical exercises is rubbing different substances on my foot to help wake up the nerve endings. So far I've tried: a feather, a sponge, a cat (several times) a spoon, sand paper, tv remote. Chances are, if you visit my house and pick up an object, at some point it will have been rubbed on my foot.

While recovering, I've watched a lot of Gilmore Girls. It was a good show for this purpose as I wasn't especially invested in it. (Have been purposefully avoiding any show or movie that will make me sad or angry.) If I had been watching the show when it first aired, I suspect I would have been out of synch with the fandom, as Jason "Digger" is my favourite of the boyfriends and I really hate the grandfather. Love Edward Herrman but the character is a mean, pompous old git.

Gilmore Girls question: should I jump ship at the S4 finale? Are the latter seasons worth watching at all?

On another note, via dawnybee , look at this sexy creature, wicked spark in his eye!

Michael, in my preferred outfit on him: classic white T. He's looking upwards because he's singing "Love in an Elevator" but let's pretend he's ogling Tom in the pic above.

Scar friction [Jan. 16th, 2017|08:26 pm]
Broken ankle: I had hoped by this point I would be walking more or less normally. At least, I can walk....just not without a limp yet. Trying not to be depressed about this. The physiotherapist was trying to cheer me up today and taped up the ankle with neon pink tape.

My least favourite activity at physiotherapy is having my scar massaged. It has to be done, to heal, but it's unpleasant. The physio is very admiring of my surgery scar and has called colleagues over to look at it. Apparently, as scars go, it's a nice one.

On a happier note, here's Michael sharing an apple with Irv.

Happy New Year!

Only one resolution this year: to learn to walk again. My "boot" comes off on Tuesday. I am so ready to say goodbye to crutches.

Michael celebrated with friends on a skiing trip. (Photo: DTLally) I like his outfit. Also like that his friend is wearing the same "onesie." May Michael continue to be as adorable in 2017 (I am confident in predicting he will be.) And may we see more of the elusive Mr. Welling.

Broken ankle. Fallen Show, Tom's eyelashes... [Dec. 19th, 2016|08:17 pm]
Broken ankle update: today I was able to ride my stationary bicycle for 15 minutes, which was very exciting! My injured leg has shrunk and now I have a "thigh gap" which is not a desirable attribute - the cats keep falling into it. I want my beefy muscular legs back.

Michael's show "Impastor" has been cancelled, which wrecked me. Tears were shed. (Granted, I'm more emo than usual this year but it just feels like 2016 has no good news to offer.) I loved this show, as funny and sweet and hyperactive as a Labrador retriever puppy, and a perfect vehicle for Michael. This gentleman eloquently sums up our collective loss:

Anyway, Michael had his usual Christmas party with friends...

Tom usually attends Michael's party but he's taken his pretty face to New Zealand (and is still selling his charity shirts to raise money for St Jude's Hospital, bless.)

Election Eve [Nov. 7th, 2016|08:15 pm]
American friends, sending you all the best wishes for tomorrow. The world is waiting, with bated breath.

I'm calming myself by staring at the RosenBooty, looking especially pert here.

Broken Ankle, Week 3; Smallville Cast round-up; Michael Pics. [Oct. 27th, 2016|06:33 pm]
This is my third week in a leg cast. The ankle has not been hurting too badly but my biggest dilemma is waking up at night all the time, needing the bathroom. Having to sleep on my back with the bad ankle elevated on a tower of pillows seems to activate my bladder somehow - am needing to go 6x a night! So that's the worse part right now. It's also hard to be mostly stuck indoors. In my regular life, I get around by walking and I miss it hugely. Sometimes I venture out to sit on the front step but it's snowing today, so....

Smallville Cast Updates! In an unexpected turn of events, Justin Hartley has vaulted straight to the top of the "Most Successful Alumni" List. He's on the hit show of the season "This is Us." I gave it a try but in my current, slightly mopey state, it was far too grueling on the emotions. Justin's great in it though and it's always nice to see a SV person succeed.

Erica Durance announced yesterday that this season of "Saving Hope" is the last - five seasons is a very decent legacy. Will be interested to see if she continues to work in Canada. Kristin K has won my admiration by enrolling in to University! Atta girl.

Tom, the sexy cipher, has gone quiet lately. Hopefully a project is on the boil.

And Michael's show Impastor is half way through its second season and continues to be the most suspenseful slapstick comedy on television, as well as first class eye candy. I mean...
