I watched an especially disturbing episode of Hoarders last night (aren't they all though) which caused me to take survey of everything in my home today. My fella and I have a weakness for bric-a-brac: owl figurines, tiny bronze deer, hummingbird sculptures, and don't even get me started on our wooden ducks........... When you mix that fabulousness (?) with mountains of interior magazines, art books and art supplies galore--- you've got the makings of the gayest episode of Hoarders ever. As a result, today has been a blur of cleaning, purging, and organizing. Feels great! Feels free like being on a pair of ice skates. That's a stretch but I want to tie in this little illustration I did of Jill somehow.
That's Mrs Zarin in her ridiculous ice skating dress right before she bit it. Was it wrong to laugh while watching Jill fall on her ass? Of course not. That wipeout seemed the perfect metaphor for her behavior and, in my opinion, her fall in likability this season. I thought she was fun as the unapologetically uppity woman of privilege last year but this season she's just annoying. And that voice............. Here's how she really looked and you can judge for yourself if I'm off in my depiction.
Anyway this posting is going to be as short as that dress as all I can truly focus on is getting back to my de-hoarding. So I'll ask you all my hilarious commenters to comment away on this week's episode. What did you think of: Alex and Bethenny's reaction to Jill's surprise appearance on Shutter Island, Sonja's artist "friend", Kelly's attempt to rewrite her meltdown, and of course Jill's ice skating? Also, perhaps you can answer the question in the title of this posting......
Jill Zarin is:
A. The owner of a voice that sounds like a horn.
B. A great ice skater.
C. As good a friend as she is an ice skater.
D. Fill in the blank.
That's all for this silliness. Hope you all are having a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Until we meet again.........
