I accept these men can cook me, and that is not something Ive thought about anyone from reality TV, ever
Summer of athletic this may well be- World Cup to the left of you, Wimbledon to the right- but I’ll be honest, I hadn’t really observed. And I’ll be even more honest, the working day England played Panama and 99.9% or whatever of the British public was watching the game, I was the 0.1% “whos not”- the insolent resister, the rebel without much of a cause. And it’s not because I was busy carpe-ing the freak out of the diem, bouncing through wall street like a woman advertising panty liners in the 1990 s. No, I was up in my bedroom watching the brand-new succession of Queer Eye.
Articles about the joyousness of Netflix’s reboot, in which five gays followers with different specialisms give a life and style makeover to person in dreadful motivation, are so countless they have become a journalistic category unto themselves. When the first succession came out the beginning of this year, I myself attained exalted says about how the show is” what our era involves “. I maybe even indicated the information was the anti-Trump evidence, knowing me. But as I sit in my darkened room, screens closed against the sunbathe, bent over my iPad, waiting for another thumped- just one!- of Tan persuading some pot-bellied American papa to swap his baggy sweatshirt for a fitted polo in a quality” that pops”, I’ve had to accept that my preoccupation has nothing to do with countries around the world and everything to do with me.
The ordinary stream of consciousness that structures the muzak in my front (” Don’t forget the dry-cleaning oh God let there be a seat on the bus should I know more about North Korea mmm quite thoughts some cheese “) has been entirely replaced with imaginary conversations with “the mens” from Queer Eye. On some profoundly buried, unexpected and terribly disadvantaged grade, I believe these men can tie me, and that is not something I’ve was just thinking about anyone from reality Tv, ever. And this is because the men from Queer Eye seem( singularly) genuinely talented, and come across( uniquely for reality Tv) as entertaining and prudent and lovely.( The obvious exception to this is Antoni, the nominal chef of the reveal, who is lovely to be addressed but I strongly suspect doesn’t even know how to turn on a stove .) This is what we talk about 😛 TAGEND
Tan is the easiest-going attention, which is why I suppose he is the most liked within the group.( Go on, ask me who on the show is really friends with who. I have sentiments !) I talk to Tan about how sometimes I buy clothes not because I like them, but because I think they’re the sort of concept beings expect me to wear, even though I know everyone is too busy “ve been thinking about” their own lives to worry about my garments. So do I speculate my defining peculiarity is my wardrobe because I paucity confidence in the actual me? Tan and I talk about this a lot on the bus.
Bobby( interior design)
I am currently doing up my front room, so Bobby and I have been in constant contact this summer. He reminds me that a area has to be practical and can’t simply is in relation to fun wallpaper, and that there is a fine pipeline between a chamber that says,” This female obliges bold, stylish statements !” and” This maiden maybe deters dried pampas grass in a monstrous Chinese urn .” I tell Bobby that, even though he is the least charismatic casting member, I know “hes working” the more difficult, and while all Karamo has to do is give pep talks in a car, Bobby has to carry literal roof on his literal back. He seems down, touched, and tells me he appreciates that.
Jonathan and I talk a lot about politics. I tell him how righteous it was when he shot Antoni down in a recent interview, after Antoni recommended it might be helpful for them to give a makeover to an all-out homophobe. Jonathan responded, in essence,” This is 2018, Antoni, and we don’t have time for your kumbaya politics, so stop break-dance your back to accommodate haters, and fight for your truth instead .” As Jonathan would say, Y fanny monarch .
But I also talk to Jonathan about my mane. I tell him that most of it fell out as a adolescent, due to anorexia, and never flourished back properly, and while most online explains don’t bother me, where individuals snark about my mane I have- piling reproach upon shame- exclaimed. Jonathan tells me I’m fabulous and those people are the literal worst, and he is right.
Karamo ( culture , whatever that makes)
I think of Karamo as a constant, messianic, ridiculously handsome proximity in “peoples lives”, who gazes upon the choices I make and rarely announces me out on them. A little like God, yes, but I think of him more like the Patrick Swayze to my Whoopi Goldberg. He’s proud of me when I go to yoga. He benignly rolls his eyes when I drunkenly snack an entire birthday patty in front of an occurrence of Frasier I’ve seen four times at 2am.
I never talk to Antoni.
