  1. Blinkers??? = Boxers??? Blinkers are for horses to wear so that they can only see straight ahead, it's to stop them being distracted. Yes, MacWilley I did see you looking in here. Anna Dude...I thought those were called Blinders???? OMG Bethy... We could each take two letters and spell it out for him....whaddaya say girls??? And yeah, we've already pretty much seen the moobies Mike. We're not giving our girls up for less than a sausage show.... :wideeyes:
  2. Bring it, Mike. As for the kilt request, I think it's totally fair. We want to know if there's a reason why they call you "big".... Why do I forsee our group picture requiring some liquid courage and not being postable????? Vegas......oh yeah! (Am I the only one who giggles like a schoolgirl at the words "fun bags"????) Gees Spot....do us a favor and give your hubby a nice hard squat on the bum!!! Naughty! Jen
  3. Well, there are certainly more than a few American expressions that I'm sure make no sense at all. But one, that both my new Aussie friend from Sydney, and labmates from Isreal, Lithuania, and Iran had no clue about... I think it's a Midwestern thing.... But when someone asks how you're doing and you reply with "peachy" (I'm peachy, I'm just peachy), that's a good thing. Not really sure why...but it is. And "off the top of my hat" is actually "off the top of my head" here in Ohio..... Jen
  4. Dang! Road rage and Gerry! Yeah, I'd be WAAAY to freaked out from a high-speed accident to yell. I'd get out of my car and my jaw would drop, and then I might star crying. Delayed stress....ya know.... And then, Gerry being the guy he is, he'd have to hold me while I cried and check to make sure I was all right. Then I'd have to check and make sure he was all right....bodily. And then, after calling the cops and sorting out the details, we'd swap info, get a ride together on a tow-truck for two, and then swap anything else that came to mind...... Yo baby! As long as no one's seriously hurt, G, I'd crash into you anytime... Jen
  5. Heya Chris - Well, it's certainly a matter to be cautious about. And a ton of stuff to consider. I think if it were me, I'd write a letter back. Obviously your ex knew that you weren't going to be ok with him writing, otherwise he'd have written to you first. Since he didn't and your daughter is only eight, I'd send him a pic, tell him how she was, and ask for his understanding in the situation (who knows if he'll actually give it...) But the time to tell your daughter about her biological father is getting very close. She's eight, so she can understand this. She can understand that you and your husband are her real parents in support and love, but she can also understand that she's got another Daddy. Sure, he's not the nice guy that anyone would like him to be. He's probably not going to be a big part of her life, at least not now. But if you don't tell her, you risk her finding out for herself - and resenting you. I would imagine that some resentment might be natural, but in time, I would think that you and she would be better once the inital shock wore off and you had the question-and-answer session that's pretty much unavoidable. Just let her know in an open, caring atmosphere. She already knows that you love her. Beaming strength to you!!!! Jen
  6. Sleep my a**..... But I've heard that sexual exhaustion isn't nearly as bad as regular exhaustion.... Nah, seriously, he's a vibrant, energetic guy. He'll get his energy back. Poor thing just needs a bit of R&R. There was a LOT of training and stress in the last half year I'd think. I do think that the pale skin has a bit to do with the reeeealllly dark hair compared to his stubble...let it fade, babe...let it fade! But I do love that he's growing it out.... I'm with you Susan, I'm not sure exactly what he's wearing. G and his off-beat fashion sense. Although that outfit wouldn't occur to me, they always seem to work for him. Dressed up, but dressed down. Casual, but dressy. And sexy any way you look. Either way, he's in NY....I hope he finally got to actually sleep in his apartment! (P.S. to Gerry...if you'd like to find out about the exhaustion, babe....you know who to call....me!)
  7. Yeah he does Suz...and a little tired (pale)....maybe that's just the dark suit? But of couse still gorgeous.... Just looks like he could use some quality time with his GALS!!! Jen
  8. Hmmm... I gotta say, I'm not especially concerned. As I am a saracastic a**, it makes me want to break out my devil horn headband just for fun.....LOL! It reminds me of a shirt I saw the other day...it said: "333" and then under that "I'm only half evil". I almost fell down I was laughing so hard... Still, it's one of those days where you're looking out for the kooks....kidna like a full moon. I don't necessarily believe in that either, but sometimes I do think the crazies come out then just for shi*s and giggles.... Jen
  9. SUUUUUZZZ! OMG! Chicago! Holy friggin moly! And G might (yeah, apparently it's a big old might, but what's new, right?) be stopping in somewhere? The man's a prince! But anyway, if I can manage Chi-town for the opening....hell, it's only about 5.5 hours from Cincy, and I know some of the Indy girls and other midwestern Tarts are champing at the bit to go.....maybe we could have a little impromptu Chicago GALS session.... Now if only I can get it together and not miss any rehearsals... Jen
  10. OMFG....BACHELORETTE in Vegas? Gees...could you imagine a better group to do a bachelorette with than the GALS? 'Cause boy, do we know how to do dirty parties! I'm IN!!!!! Oh HELL Yeah! The wedding party is wearing "daffodil terrycloth"....or was that "blue sheet"?
  11. Susan - Ya know, I'm not especially religious, but I've always believed that what goes around in the world comes around. Call it karma, call it following the Golden Rule, whatever. And I know that this will be ok - you 'fessed up when you realized you made the mistake, you took responsibility, and you were a professional about the situation. Your boss realizes, like we do, that this, while unfortunately not the norm today, is certainly to be respected and valued. Everyone makes mistakes. How we handle them is what makes us who we are. I can only believe that this will work itself out and blow over - have faith! We love you! Jen
  12. Hmmmm.. Well, due to some...interesting...technical difficulties.... I may have to same-day this baby tomorrow if I can get the friggin recorder to work tonight. I got one copy, but when I played it back, it was all weird and distorted...damn cassette player....(ok, or that's how I really sound...whatever...) :mopboyerik: But hopefully I can whip out the goods tonight and get this show on the road. Woot! Jen Edit - hopefully it's there! Yay!
  13. Just curious girlies - Do we know how many entries have been submitted???? Cool! Jen
  14. WOW girls! Ok, here it goes.. Hey G!!!!!! Well, ok, so I'm actually one of the nutballs that drove to Canada to see B&G. It was about 10.5 hours. But only 2 of it was alone. After meeting some of my friends in Indianapolis, we drove the 8-ish hours to Toronto together. We listened to POTO and Dear Frankie. We talked, about EVERYTHING. We giggled, and we probably frightened a gas station attendant, but we made it. There, we met about 30 other friends, most of whom I had already met in Scotland or in regional get-togethers. We proceeded to enjoy our hotel, our friends, and of course, the MOVIE! It was fabulous! And Sturla! What a peach! And then about six of us stayed up after watching it three times until all hours of the morning, laughing and chatting. It was spontaneous, insane, and yet, incredibly fun and satisfying. There are SO many reasons that we do this. We get to see the friends that have become so dear to us, though we live many miles apart. We get to be crazy and explore new cities (Toronto is friggin beautiful! If I didn't need a visa, I'd have moved there!!!). But yeah, big guy, some of it is for you! We want your movies to be a success. We love to just sit in a darkened theater and stare, and listen to the gorgeous Scottish accent. We kinda like chain mail, honestly. But like Abrock above, there was a turning point for me wrapped up in your Phantom performance. I had been out of college for two years, working in a field that I had studied, and just doing what it was that I thought people did in life. But there was something missing for me. And though I was slowly coming to see what it was, your voice, your passion, your talent and presence in POTO made me see it for what it was - me not making the most of the life and opportunities given me. Sure, it's been a journey. There are certainly friends and family members that doubt my sanity (not that they didn't before, but now it has a name...). But it was time for me to take an active role and seize the chances to make myself happy and make my improbable dreams come true. Whether I make it or not, your example of acting, singing, and the way to behave as a celebrity is my hope in the future. Something about you and this circle of loving fans (I'm a Tart too!) made me see that I do have potential as an actress as long as I embrace my dreams. The friends that I've found here aren't women that I'd have met elsewhere, and I treasure their support, humor, creativity, and intelligence. They are women of great heart and spirit. And they choose to gather together here because you, too, are a reflection of that heart, spirit, humor, creativity, intelligence, and support. And honestly, I'd drive one helluva lot farther than Canada to support all of that, especially a man containing all that and more, who is modest and genuine despite it all. The way you embrace your devoted fans and take the time says it all. Your attitude is part of what shapes the atmosphere of love here, and has given us the media to meet one another and spread the goodness. Sort of "Pay It Forward", minus Kevin Spacey.....LOL! If you're willing to take the time, to send us auction items, drinks, YOUR FAMILY, then sir, why should you ever doubt that we'd be ready and willing to try and support you in the same way? It's a circle, I think. You inspire and encourage us, and we can only hope to do the same for you. Thanks for all you do, all you are, flaws and all! :inlove: Jen
  15. Hello girlies! Ok - first of all, you all are BRAVE! I'm absolutely going to chicken out...but I'll come and support and hold hands or hair or whatever!!! Secondly...Susan...why don't you try to do a design incorporating the sisterhood knot and the thistle? You could have an artist work on it for you in advance...but the upper arms of the knot could easily be the thistle leaves, and the flower could be in the center... But I do love the Celtic stuff and the thistle. I was considering getting one awhile back, and if I ever did it'd be something Celtic, something Scottish, and something theater all tied in together. Can't really figure out how that would work, and I certainly don't have the guts to do it now, since I don't even have one yet, but still... Cool beans! Jen
  16. OMG! Y'all are friggin' amazing!!!! Swan - as usual, your writing has quite swept me off of my feet. You have a way with words, woman! As one of the women that isn't the "usual" GAL or Tart (or whatever) represented in your story, as the young and unmarried, I STILL found myself nodding my head in agreement. Transitions indeed. And Gerry as a catalyst - if he's a chemical, methinks he's the latest wonder drug! But anyway, thank you for this. Thanks for letting the man know why is it that we step outside of our normal boundaries to meet each other and to support him. There are some things in life that are important enough to us to dismiss being thought of as slightly nuts, and to the end of supporting you wonderful women (and men - HI guys!) and Gerry, I'm proud. But seriously, you have to start writing stuff that doesn't make me cry. Gees. I'm not the weepy sort, but this is ridiculous. Jen
  17. Ummm.......HELL NO! Ok, there are very few things that I wouldn't do to be in a movie with Gerry. And I mean VERY few. But doing a nude scene is not in the works. Seriously, I do act. I have never been even semi-nude, but I'd think (really, really hard) about going topless. I have worn a modest bathing suit on stage, but there's NO friggin' way I'd do a nude scene. I have thought about it, and many well-known actresses have no-nudity clauses in their contracts, and I'd be one of them. My Grandma will NOT see all the goods, unless there's some sort of emergency that involves me choosing between her and Richard Simmons, sorry! :bootyshake: But really, if there weren't living witnesses, I'd swear I was born with clothes on.... Now, as to any private nudity that G might like to engage in, I'm sure we could work out a suitable agreement without our respective managers..........take that as an invitation, sir! Jen
  18. Since we're talking "a fairly safe chance", and I thought that this was an acceptable way/situation to meet him... I guess the basic answer is that as long as there's no actual murdering, maiming, or serious moral-dilemma-inducing stuff going on, I'd do about anything. So I wouldn't hurt a friend or family member, I wouldn't put myself in huge debt. But you're pretty much guaranteed to meet some new Tarts and/or GALS, so that's always a bonus. That, and I'm addicted to having spontaneous adventures....woot!!!! I'm afraid of heights, but I'd brave those for G. I'm not hugely fond of clowns, but again, I'd do it. I HATE spiders and insects, but, depending on the circumstances, I might be able to deal with even THAT. Who knows.... Jen
  19. Ok, so this thread caught my eye because I actually had this daydream while driving a few days ago... Now, presuming this was the longest possible flight....wouldn't mind flying to Australia (hell, I'd fly to Antarctica if that's where he was headed), just for the sheer # of hours. Taking into consideration that I don't sleep well on planes and I'd look like hell....AND that me being in first class would be nothing short of a miracle... But anyway, down to the daydream. At the time, I was eating animal crackers. As such, I pulled out a handful and was industriously shoveling them into my mouth, (after examining them, of course, it's a crime to eat an animal cracker without checking to see what you're chewing on!), I found it incredibly funny that I had.......A CAMEL! So if I were eating on a plane (I don't travel without food, that's just how I roll!), and I happened to pull out a camel, I'd just giggle slightly, turn to him, and say, "I'm sorry, but I think this one actually is more suited to you"....and put it in his palm. After his initial shock, I'd have to introduce myself and get him talking about, well, anything. Just love to hear him talk. Plus I'd offer to share my snacks and offer comments on the flight and tell jokes, just to hear him giggle. Maybe I'd tell him how fabulous his family was in Glasgow, which would of course lead to interesting family stories. Then I'd talk about how much I enjoyed Scotland, which he would comment on. Then onto movies. Maybe me asking his opinion on a saucy article in the latest Cosmo....plus some obligatory small talk - details about me, of course, and how I came to be a Tart and a GAL :inlove: . And then, of course, (because I'm a big one for not missing a golden opportunity), I'd slip him my number. Because our conversation would be scintillating and witty (and not at all me just staring at him with my jaw wide open :tasty: .....no.......certainly not!). So that's it! Jen
  20. Hello all! Sunday night....dang it I hate Mondays....ick. Start of the work week my butt... So anyway, Kimbo - I'm not especially a European expert, but Shepherd's pie is indeed ground meat (usually beef or lamb), with peas and carrots and some spices covered with mashed potatoes and baked. Verra good! I had bridies too, but they're meat in a flaky dough. Speaking of which, I attended a local celebration of Tartan Day yesterday night. One of my best girlfriends from high school has a little brother that plays in Cincinnati's Caledonian Pipe and Drum band. They're pretty well known, and they've got about 30 pipers and another 10 drummers. It was a night of Scottish food, whiskey, dancing, stories, and music. The announcer picked me out right away as "watching all the men in kilts....("Do ye have no shame, wuuuman???") and kept kidding around with us. Best of all, since I went in a short little tartan skirt and my friend and I were the cute young things there, the older (VERY flirty) Scottish announcer (from Glasgow...SO adorable...if he weren't 60 and married I'd have taken him home...) chose us to be the judges of the "Bonniest Knees" contest... Though unfortunately my friend thought this was the "boniest" knees, it involved the drum major throwing his plaid (not his kilt, ladies...) over our heads and us having to feel six kilted men's knees and deciding which were the best. Truly, it was fabulous. So basically, I won a guiness and conversation with the cutie that we happened to pick as the best set of be-kilted knees. Had to start at the socks so that I didn't grab anything unfortunate...but the announcer had to feel my knees a few times first. Such a cheeky old guy! But after the night was over and we were cleaning up he truly told my friend and I some scathing and blush-inducing stories of his time in Scotland...apparently he was a bass guitar player in a band and he was as charming as an older Gerry, so he was, as usual, right to the pervy point. My goodness, it was an amazing night. Not only were half of the men there in kilts (yay!), but I love the bagpipes and I got some new Celtic jewelry (minor obsession), and then was told dirty stories about how he'll remember me from an adorable Scot. Sigh!!!!! Pics to come if they ever post them online.... Hope everyone's weekend was as good as my own! :yippee: Jen
  21. Well, I'm sure Mr. Brosnan has gotten his fill of fan attention throughout the years...Remmington Steel...James Bond....and all that...Mrs. Doubtfire! :: Sorry, not sure what's come over me... May Pierce was thinking, "For once, they're not after ME!!" Okay, I'm just kidding everyone, not putting words in anybody's mouth (but it's sure fun to pretend, eh? oh, that's what the photo caption forum is for...) Forgive me, two nights of insomnia leaves this Vanilla GAL with a verrra strange sense of humor. I think you're probably right, Abrock. I'm sure Pierce has had his fair share of fans......(not that they're by any means as fabulous or as numerous as we are....cough cough). I doubt there would be much jealousy. But if I were Maria Bello, I might be going, "Hey, where are mine????" with a pouty face. But then again, she gets to work with the both of them, so I think it's a fair trade, right ladies? I think that things have calmed down too....there is always going to be a little bit of unpleasantness involved with these things, I think, on both Gerry's and our sides, but the important part is that the majority of the interactions that we have leave all parties happy (I was going to use "satisfied", but I think that's in another forum.....LOL!). I think that it's actually quite a statement that we're actually worrying about the small stuff that we think could hurt Gerry. That alone should be a testament to how nice most of us really are! Jen
  22. Allright - Any of you girls that have been to Vegas before or live in the general area, can you answer a question for me? I was checking weather.com today, and the averages for Vegas in June get up to 99°F and down into the mid 70s at night. I am told this is "dry heat", but living in Cincinnati, I don't have any grasp of the concept.... Is it seriously that hot there? Am I going to need constant ice-packing? I just tried on my first pair of shorts for the season (shudder), and decided that going with skirts and capris is a better option....but if I'm going to fry like a 'smore, then I might need them, AND a bathing suit (double shudder)... Any advice out there???? Thanks all! Jen
  23. Terra (first of all, HI!!! Meeting you in Indy was SO cool!), and secondly, I think you and Susan put your thoughts on this really well. I hear Alice too, I know that I don't begrudge anyone their chance to meet Gerry. I know that there are several ladies who I personally like that met him (one or many times), and I know that they were sweet and respectful. I have NO problem with people that go to the set and watch. Heck, its a public set. They know that they're going to get people coming to watch. They're shooting in the middle of a city street for goodness sake. If I were up there, would I go to the set? Sure. I'd sit and watch quietly, just in awe, and if, by some stroke of luck, the clouds parted and the angels sang and Gerry strutted over for some quality time, would I take it? Heck yeah! But it does seem from some of the encounters that there were a few lines crossed. I read most of the fan encounters, and I cherish them. I've never met the man myself, so each encounter is just a little more about the man to me. And most of them are lovely. There are, however, a few that just make me nervous. I wouldn't discourage anyone from posting their story, we've each got different comfort levels about sharing. Plus there are A LOT of us - even if your story is nothing but the epitome of sweetness, 99% of the responses will be positive, but there's always that one. Being part of such a big community is something that we have to keep in mind. But if I were with a group of people that were pushy and seemed to be taking advantage, I'd be ashamed, and I certainly wouldn't post. Most of us have the common sense to avoid those situations where we feel Gerry isn't being given the respect that's due him as a human being, and I just hope we can keep it that way. He does after all deserve from us what we deserve from him - respect. And if we can let him decide when, where, and for how long he gives his time, just like we get to decide everyday, then I think the best benefits will come to Gerry and us as fans. Jen
  24. Double yay! on the "no video needed" for singing... Now to pick a song..... I must say, it would be WAY less pressure and more inclusive to just have a show and then pick winners... Not that I mind competition....but it might deter some fans who otherwise would participate if they're shy or easily intimidated... Maybe there's a way to incorporate both a show AND a competition???? Three cheers to whomever is organizing this, you're a brave soul and I can't thank you enough for your work!!!!! Jen
  25. Thanks Em! While we are generally women of much common sense and consideration for others, there are times when we lose our head over Gerry! I have been checking the videos and pics too, and I can't help but feel sorry for our man! Respect is the name of the game, and since I don't see Gerry disturbing my work (not that I wouldn't stop everything, LOL!), I know that we need to realize that he's just that when he's on set - at work. I can't imagine how he's keeping his mind on the task at hand....but he's amazing, and we all hope that he can see through any frustration and just chalk it up as supporting him too much...and not create any additional stress for him ourselves. It's true he loves his fans - lets keep it that way! :inlove:
