Rest your weary heads, all is well

I think it's time for some meat around here. All the boob talk is starting to worry me. Have you been watching Brothers and Sisters? You really should be. It's sweet and funny and rife with manmeat. Never mind that Rachel Griffiths is one of the sisters (adore her) and that Sally Field is fabulous as the ultra-liberal matriarch, because the real reason to tune in is that each of the titular brothers is more snackable than the next. So what choice do I have but to rate them in descending order of fuckitude? Understanding, of course, that I'd sell my left nut for a chance with any one of these guys. And I don't part with Esteban lightly, y'all.

1. Matthew RhysIs he #1 with me because he plays gay brother, Kevin? Possibly, because this character is adorable, you guys, and funny and smart and a lawyer and he gets lots of play. Plus, that face!

2. Dave AnnableBaby brother Justin is damaged goods. Fresh after his exit from Iraq, he's entered rehab. The caregiver in me wants to lend him a hand.

3. Balthazar GettyHe's so compact! And so Getty. I'll confess. Old money is Mikenip.

I said I was doing the brothers, and I stuck with that for the ranking, but I feel for the sake of completeness that I should at least mention the brother-in-law, played by John Pyper-Ferguson.Oh! Also, there's Kevin's new boyfriend, the closeted soap actor, played by Jason Lewis.Go on, click to enlarge. I know, right? Sunday nights at 10, kiddos.

ok, so i was about to leave a comment along the lines of "WTF??? It's WEDNESDAY. Where's my PIE, damnit?!"

but then I got to Jason Lewis at the end there. You're forgiven.

I was all set to go on and on about Penelope Cruz (again), because I just can't stop thinking about her after watching "Volver" last weekend, but I wasn't kidding when I said I'm starting to worry....next you know, pussy is gonna start looking good. Hence the meat. Isn't Jason a tasty bit?

Thats amusing someone of Flickr took a photo of me once and one the the comments was that in that photo i looked like Rachel Griffiths...

But yes you must even up all this boob talk with the mention of boys, boys, boys. Anyway i am practically boobless, trust me breast feeding four kids does NOT make them look fab, only when they are full of milk.... and i could go on and on but i will gross everyone out :P

Michael said...

You're very pretty, of course, but the image that lingers is that one of your back, Q.

Chas said...

Love this show. Is it wrong that I'm genuinely sad that Kevin is not my boyfriend? Where is my handsome gay lawyer with a big family with upper middle class sensibilities?

Oh well, Michael, I guess you'll just have to do. ;)

Michael said...

I've been told that I'll do in a pinch, Charlie.

PS I pine for a Kevin of my own, too.

The Other Andrew said...

Yummmmm! I love it when you do Snack Time (as I like to call it).

I can introduce you to a handsome gay lawyer - aka Mikey (the lovely ex).

Michael said...

I put out a nice buffet, no?

Mmmm, I love it when you offer me sloppy seconds. I kid, of course, if you're out there, Mikey! Methinks you're prime cuts.

freakgirl said...

Jason Lewis? Fuck, I'm going to have to start watching this show again.

Bodhi said...

Jason Lewis. DEFINATELY Jason Lewis. He'd make a pretty little man-bag accessory on the arm of my matching D&G mobile phone and jeans combination. Truly faaaaab.

And yes, before you ask, I did buy the D&G jeans to match my previously purchased D&G phone. Its perfectly reasonable. Accessorize, accessorize people.

And by the way, Mikey sweetie, I'm still waiting for you to come down under my way. Ohh, and visit Australia too cutie ;-) Call QANTAS already~

Anyhoo, I'm off to 'read' my just bought February issue of DNA ...

MWAH!!

quiet 60s girl said...

Hmmm did i mention that i had the tattoo added to Michael with the Mantra, arching over the moon...

If you are booking that Qantas flight Bodhi refers to we simply all must share you Andrew, Bodhi and moi ;) cause ya just sound too sweet. Like chocolat...

Michael said...

So it's not my milkshake, but instead Jason Lewis that brings all the girls to the yard.

Freakgirl, this show has been finding it's balance, and some weeks pretty spotty because of it. I think there were all kinds of behind the scenes changes? Greg Berlanti (the Creek!), who's gay and hot produces now, so YAY!, except that he's replaced Marti Noxon (Buffy/Angel). Boo! Meanwhile, they've dangled enough good things to keep me hanging around.

BODHI! I secretly hoped the boys would be just the right bait to draw out my exotic and rarely seen (D&G bedecked) gay! Dude. Has Jason Lewis graced the pages of DNA? You know I'd dearly love to hang out with y'all in Sydney. It'll happen, it'll happen. A big slumber party and we'll watch movies with cute boys and do each other's hair and....

Q, any descriptions of tat changes are good, but Polaroids are called for. And me, chocolate? Despite what I may seem, I'm Nestle's milk chocolate at best in real life. But thanks, darlin'!

quiet 60s girl said...

Why thats simply a lie! You are Lindt, German or Belgian at best. We know that already. Slumber party cool i like having my hair played with, its like a relaxing trip to the hair dressers.

Revised photo of new tattoo additions on their way via gmail....i feel a song coming on "for your eyes only, only for you..." but of course Bodhi and Andrew have seen it. And Bodhi even watched the whole lot happen (he pretends he likes the tattoo guy Dean "doin' his thing", but i know its really me...all about me lol) xx

The Other Andrew said...

It would be rude not to chime in, given my status as the third leg of the Aussie tripod. Yes, I know how that sounds.

"Brothers & Sisters" starts here on Monday night and I'm looking forward to it! I know you know Beralnti from Dawson's Crack, but he was also the writer/director of "The Broken Hearts Club". He champions the gay wherever he goes!

Michael said...

Oh, you'll enjoy it, Andrew! Pre-Lewis, Kevin's love interest is a fey cutie-pie who was rumored to be TR Knight's real-life honey. Oooh, it's ALL so delish! Just a fun show...sweet, funny, sentimental and I think Sally Field is aces in it.

Q, can't wait to see!

The Other Andrew said...

...I think Sally Field is aces in it.

A given.

Michael said...

I suppose, but I'm amazed by her sometimes....she can make conflicting emotions wash across her face in an instant.
