The evening routine

Zone Romantica show two episodes of Ally McBeal a night. They've gone through the entire run and are going through it again and I'm watching each and every one of them.

I like it.

It reminds me of when I was a young, single, professional woman in Boston. Though the work/life balance of these people seems way off. They're in the office all the time, constantly working late and only socialising with those they work with, not even leaving the building. Is that living?

Well, it must be because I feel I can live vicariously through these characters. That's probably the hallmark of good television - that I can feel like I'm living while watching a show, all the while shutting out the reality of the situation.

How come none of the characters have children? Is it because nobody in their right mind would want to picture themselves with children? Is it that we all lament the passing of our young, free and single days?

Shame they brought Bon Jovi into the show. He's a big girl's blouse.

Some of you may notice I added some links over there on the right. It's the done thing on blogs to link to sites you like so it's about time I did. Some of them are the ones everyone visits, some aren't so, if you're bored, check them out and tell them a grumpy old animator sent you. I'll be adding more as I think of them. Also, I added some subscribe buttons. Having never used them myself, I can't tell you how they work. Feel free to ignore them or try them out if you like and let me know what happens.

I need help translating your English into English.

What do you mean by "He's a big girl's blouse."

I love the broader use of textured brushes in your work.

Thanks Ron! It's quick to be honest.

Ugtv - 'big girl's blouse' means "an ineffectual or effeminate male". It must be a British expression.
