Recommended Posts

Went grocery shopping after taiji this morning. I only went to Harris Teeter though. Laundry day today.

Our kitty has been sick which entails a bit of cleaning up. :nausea:

I don't pay attention to the ears, but I'm loving the clothes. I also hope he got to speak with kd lang -- she takes over from Fanty in a few months.

I hope this all suggests something good.....

At the VIP picture taking, the first thing I noticed was his well fitting suit with straight legged pants with a perfect crease. Must be part of the more sophisticated look. Something is definitely in the works.

ETA : I think his ears havent changed, he has just grown into them.

Wahoo 2 days. Didn't the fandom as an entity say that when Clay has his lashes dyed that he is planning to be on tv?

aikim, hope your kitchen is getting close to being finished. I always hated the process. We went through three kitchen remodels, the latest this summer.

Darkened lashes and eyebrows that look good. That's our man about town!

I've been in the "wait and see" car for quite a while now, but last night started swaying me toward him being on Broadway again. It just seems to fit; however, knowing that shows open and close at a moment's notice (even with a fairly sizeable fanbase *g*), that kinda scares me a bit too. But it would also make me happy, if Clay is happy about it. I'm not sure if I'd be able to see him (going to NYC is expensive, ya'll!), but I know there would be all kinds of stage door reports!

Well, if kd lang is taking over from Fanty, how about Clay taking over from Dule? Would love to have him sing with kd!

Great idea rohdy. As long as it's not at Christmas. I can't miss another visit from my west coast son like I did last year for the JNT. Bad mom. :sorry: But I love kd lang too.

Yeah, I've had that dream too -- Clay and kd singing together would be amazing. From what I'm reading of this show, though -- it sounds as if kd lang is an....interesing....choice for this. So having Clay do this show? Would be very interesting. Not out of the realm of possibilities, I hope!

kd's voice is so beautiful, I have always loved her singing and would love to hear her sing with Clay. :cocktail: I've never really cared for Fantasia's voice but I would imagine in a Broadway production she would have to sing in the style the show required...and maybe leave out her "chicken walk." :popcorngirl:

Calurker LOL about the chicken walk. I LOVE Fantasia and would love to see her in this show but doubt very much I can get to NY before February. Just not going to happen. Wonder if there is FACK. ha ha.

Hope everyone is having a great week. Do we know any more about Clay in SVU. I've never watched any of the Law and Orders. I'll tape it and watch his parts. I hope he is the murderer/killer/whatever.

We know he's a judge on "American Divas" (along with Ashanti and Taylor Hicks). We know the story involves someone being accused of being a child molestor (not Clay -- we think).

This is the clip you want to watch (which I think was posted about a week ago or so?):

Well, you sure don't have to wait long to see Clay in the episode! :) That was great, much more than a "blink and you'll miss it".
