Also, I forgot to mention this earlier. My brother-in-law, an all around terrific guy, and handsome to boot, is going to be on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition tonight. His construction crew built a 16,000 sq foot home in under 72 hours. Dude. He said it was the most tired he's ever been, but his whole purpose in becoming a builder was to build homes for people, not houses, so this was pretty awesome for him to be a part of.

He's about 6' 5" (we like them tree-like in our family), ridiculously handsome, with VERY broad shoulders, dark hair, tan, tan, tan. And scowling at the back of Ty Pennington, who is apparently an egotistical bastard and ONLY speaks to the families when it's being captured on film. [/sad]

It's a two hour special, with the "How'd They Do That?" tomorrow night. We're not sure where he'll be more prominently featured, but he was singled out an interviewed, as he is ridiculously handsome. And nice.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled nap. Or whatever. :-D [/pride and family love] And, um, it's the only family themed icon I have. Heh.

[ETA] Am watching. no sign of bro, but sign of his handiwork, heh. And for the record: I fucking hate Ty Pennington's white ass. (And the Code Talkers have me bawling. Inuncilo Peshtawah. -Brave Warriors.)

I read that as being 'Extreme Makeover' at first, but no, it's the house getting the do over and not your brother-in-law. Hey, how come he couldn't of given them a false address and made them come over and put another floor on your house for free?
May. 22nd, 2005 05:05 pm (UTC)
DAMMIT!! Why don't I know to consult you before EVERYTHING!! But I do have two floors, so to build onto that would just be ostentatious.

And he's real purdy, so he doesn't need a makeover. After being at the pool all day, I could sure use some help... *hides the frizzy hair under a cap of steel*

That's so cool *is proud about your brother-in-law too* As much as I moan about reality shows and WB cancelling Angel for the dumbest reason in the planet (well, next to "I didn't think anything would happen if I touched it"), that show gives me a warm glow whenever I watch it. They make a difference, and there should be more of that! (Of course, we don't get to see it at the same time as the rest of the world, so I'll just pretend that each episode has your brother-in-law on it - ok?)
May. 22nd, 2005 05:03 pm (UTC)
I loathe reality shows, too. But I like the end result of this show, so... *shrugs*

No sign of Bro, yet, but they have commented on how fast his crew is, and in fact, he's known as running the fastest crew in the state of Arizona. *loves my family*

I owe you some clikcy clicky at your LJ for the pic/dad/rugby stuff.

Hey!! And what's with the Um? Like you need an excuse to pop in anytime you want.

Sure wish you were hitching a ride with Smash....

Man, I'm sad to hear that about Ty. He comes across as the kind of guy who would be awesome in person. Oh well. Not like my bubble hasn't been burst busted bursted popped before.

I shall watch and oogle your BIL. It will be as if I am oogling Stoney herself. And that thought just makes me all hot and stuff.

And although your family icon is ridiculously lame, I don't even have one, so I really can't criticize. But I did anyway. Because that's how I am.
May. 22nd, 2005 05:01 pm (UTC)
Oogle me!! Mmmmm. *preens*

So sorry to burst your bubble, but Ty is a jerk. Aaaaaaall about the face time. Won't socialize or even chat with the families he's so "helpful" to. But. At least the families are getting help, so I'll thank him for that much.

And let me tell you that my icon is BEAUTIFUL, and I made it for a fic you didn't read. Harumph. (seriously though: go read it - not smutty. The best I've written, IMO.)

*catwhistles and oogles you*

I like Carter Oosterhouse better anyway.
May. 22nd, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC)
Bro said he was cool. And Constance is aptly named as she was "constantly" in the way. He married into our family, so he doesn't have the clever joke gene.

May. 22nd, 2005 09:28 pm (UTC)
Ty always got on my nerves on Trading Spaces. I'm a little vindicated at having my irrational hatred supported, while vastly sad for his empty soullessness, as the families deserve better than having to deal with that kind of crap. I say we hassle and stalk network executives until they hire your brother in law instead.
May. 23rd, 2005 05:32 am (UTC)
HEE!! It's like you've tapped into my phone when I'm talking to my sister. O_O Um, I have been referring to my pot 'S and PANS. *meep!*

They are just typical TV people with a hit show. I mentioned earlier that I was sickened by his behavior, but ultimately, the end result is something lovely, so I'll thank him for that much. That family last night had me in tears.
May. 22nd, 2005 10:07 pm (UTC)
Coolness! My parents are obsessed with those reno reality shows, and I'll sure to tell her to watch for him.

He's about 6' 5" (we like them tree-like in our family), ridiculously handsome, with VERY broad shoulders, dark hair, tan, tan, tan.

Everything's bigger in Tex- When you say brother-in-law, you mean your husband's brother, not your sister's husband, right? Because I'm going to come down there and snap the boy up. He'll fit right in with my forest of a family.
May. 23rd, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
Nope, so sorry, he is married to my older sister. I have no single boys available. Well, there's my younger brother, but he's REALLY young, so that's a no go. *sisterglare*

May. 22nd, 2005 11:08 pm (UTC)
I watched! I think I saw your BIL's shoulder!
That little girl was such a sweetie.
I just fell in love with her.
Also, Mr. Kako is very disappointed in Ty. For shame.
May. 23rd, 2005 05:34 am (UTC)
That little girl was SO PRECIOUS!! The boy was breaking my heart, though, because he was old enough to remember Mama. *cries some more*

I like Mr. Kako even more.

Nope, but we think it's because the greatness ofmy BIL would have overshadowed Ty. Ha ha!

One thing you can be sure of: I will NEVER steal your salt water taffy. *loathes* But. I will steal anything chocolatey you have lying about.

I want a nap, a pedicure, and to not SWEAT. Stupid me waited until 9:30 to go walking. It's already 90 degrees and a million points on the humidity scale. *melts*

Tell Caza to suck it. And that I'm buying him a Darth Vader mug.
May. 23rd, 2005 07:45 pm (UTC)
Woe! You've ruined the show for me! Now I'll I sit there and think to myself "Oh that Ty, what a jackass. Look at those fake tears. Fake, fake. I didn't know carpenters could act. Oh, look at those happy people, I hope somebody punches him. But he acts to nice. Why?!? That no good helicopter-hogger."


So I'll just have to give all of my love to Paul. Paul's nice, right? Right? :P

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
