Because it's a lot like playing touch football in a yellow cardigan...with elbow pads.

Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl, blah, blah, blah...you know, you know...

-First off, what's the difference between the "old Blair" and the "new Blair" exactly? They seemed pretty much exactly the same - mean spirited, bitchy, self serving - when was Blair not these things, exactly? A few doe-eyed bedroom scenes with Chuck does not a "new Blair" make.

-"Where's Waldorf"

-I loved that Serena has presumably been through so much with Blair (sex orgies, drug taking, lying, manipulating, declaring war on people's very lives), but it was her shoplifting a pair of sunglasses that convinced S that she had really gone off the deep end this time.

-I liked Vanessa's cardigan a lot. I find her to be very pretty. Mara disagrees.

-I HATE Rufus and Lily, but mostly Rufus. I guess I don't actually hate Lily. I used to really like her, but now she's with Rufus, who I hate. He's the worst. Insufferable. I see where Dan gets it.

- Mara pointed out, quite astutely, how immature Rufus and Lily where being with their lists. So stupid. Serena and Dan were never that immature, but then again Dan's list would have consisted of pretty much just Serena, so I could see how that would be embarrassing.

-One more thing about the list, having a discussion regarding your degree of slutiness is an inappropriate one to have with your teenage daughter.

-I know I say it every week, but damn Serena's boobs are something else. Just a pleasure to look at.

-Who calls their grandfather "grandfather"?

-Why was Dan all over the Vanderbelt Family reunion? I couldn't believe it when he got out of the limo the first time and then back again for day two. Unbelievable.

-I know that I've made mention of the times when Nate is not really on episodes and I've voiced a bit of surprise. Now I totally get it. Nate is sooooooo boring. Like Rufus and Lily boring. Like Chuck investigates the gentleman's club his father was a member of boring. Who cares if he accepts some internship in the mayor's office? Not me. And neither should Vanessa, who IS pretty, dammit! And while we're at it, what DID happen to the Nate that just wanted to get high and play Halo?


-Dorota had a great show last night. First she yells at Chuck in Polish, which is awesome and then totes covers for Blair and Nate which I believe because I'm sure she sees what a better, if much more boring, influence Nate would be on her beloved "Miss Blair."

-"Do you think the Humphrey's have a family crest that I could get Jenny to sew on one of my cardigans?" Sometimes Dan gets me. At least he knows he's ridiculous.

-Where's Eric?

-Jenny was really useless in this episode. She was pretty much only on last night's episode to verbally product place Bluefly.

-Teenagers don't insist that other teenagers "leave town" in real life, yet they do on Gossip Girl which is why I love it.

-What could have possibly happened on Santorini? They'll probably just brush it aside and hope we'll forget to ask again. Not me, I'm asking every week.

-I was amazed at the initial reveal that Tripp was supposed to be older than Nate.

-Also, alright Tripp.

-Touch football.

So the episode was best described by Mara, "meh". Better than last week, though and it seems to be something of a reset and next week looks AWESOME! So, a solid B-.

This morning i emailed Pat to say that i couldn't believe how surprised he was that Trip was Nate's OLDER cousin. I hemmed and hawed about whether to give trip two Ps in his name. Looks like Pat went for two. Bold.
Other than that, i agree about everything except vanessa's looks. she's bold busted. not really i just hate her and can't get past it. Did you see how offended she was when trip's fiancee mentioned her "background?" She just assumed a rich white girl was being racist when she was actually talking about her background in activism, which this bitch couldn't be more proud of.

Did I ever tell you that I rode the Subway with V once? She was about a foot away from me and I can confirm that she is, in fact, pretty.

I agree with everything you said except for the Grandfather thing. I think rich people call their grandfathers Grandfather.

I love it when Mara says "bold busted" and you're probably right about the grandfather thing littlefish.

I like how bold busted started bacause my mom's friend's little sister ( who was "challenged" and this is being nice for me, cuz Lauren gets mad when i use the term retarded)caught them smoking cigarettes when thety were younger, and she couldnt spell busted , so she exclaimed "you are B. O. L. D. BUSTED!, I like this episode of GG, but no Nelly Yuki or Girls on the stairs makes me unhappy. Vanessa is pretty but thats cuz she kinda looks the the female love intrest character from Disney's The Huntchback of Notre Dame, i'll go cut myself now for using that movie as a go to point,
