Gossip Girl Grief



I can't remember if you even own a TV or not, so my current state of total devastation might mean nothing to you. But please, just give me a moment to indulge in my Gossip Girl grief.

I have been living here in the UK for almost nine months now (Biological Clock! I order you to cease and desist! Do NOT think about what else could have been happening in that amount of time!) and there are a lot of things I like about being here. For example:

  • is not disgustingly sweltering in the summer.
  • is home to Colossus, the Trainer of Dreams (seriously you should feel my butt these days).
  • is a 90-minute flight to the Hofbrauhaus.
  • contains more Nutella per capita than anywhere else in the world.*
However, London has one ghastly fault:

London, tease that she is, does not air Gossip Girl when the US does. She airs it, alright, but - later. An unspecified amount of time later.

Thus the reason for my dark pashmina of mourning today. As season two of GG airs in the States, I will be - well, technically, I will be asleep, but also - praying for a swift deliverance of "series two" (as they dub it here) to the British airwaves.

What's the big deal, you ask? Let me break it down for you, oh unenlightened one:

Gossip Girl...
  • is fashionista porn!
  • is mayjah dramz!
  • is metrosexual eye candy!
  • is camptastic!
I am not exaggerating when I say that it was the highlight of my spring when, in one of her scenes last season, Georgina (evil bitch that she was) carried the same bag The Lawyer bought me for our anniversary. I have rarely felt so fashionable. And downright awesome.

So Sue, if you do have a TV, please tune in for me. Gals everywhere, reap every morsel of enjoyment out of the second seasoning.

You know you love me.

*Ok, made that one up. But it sure feels true when you've outlawed Nutella until your honeymoon!

I do love the fashion on GG. It's like fashion porn for the eyes. I salivate over the bags.
