I speculate these men can choose me, and that is not something Ive thought about anyone from actuality 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 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 defiant resister, the rebel without much of a generate. And it’s not because I was busy carpe-ing the freak out of the diem, hop-skip through wall street like a woman advertising panty liners in the 1990 s. No, I was up in my bedroom watching the new series of Queer Eye.
Articles about the joyousness of Netflix’s reboot, in which five homosexuals beings with different specialisms give a life and mode makeover to someone in dreadful requirement, are so countless they have become a journalistic genre unto themselves. When the first succession came out earlier this year, I myself acquired exalted demands about how the show is” what our period necessity “. I probably even indicated the information was the anti-Trump substantiate, knowing me. But as I sit in my darkened room, shrouds closed against the sun, inclination over my iPad, waiting for another punched- precisely one!- of Tan convincing some pot-bellied American dad to swap his baggy sweatshirt for a shaped polo in a quality” that pops”, I’ve had to accept that my obsession has nothing to do with the world and all is do with me.
The ordinary stream of consciousness that forms the muzak in my heading (” Don’t forget the dry-cleaning oh God let there be a seat on the bus should I know more about North Korea mmm fairly thoughts some cheese “) has been fully replaced with imaginary a discussion with the men from Queer Eye. On some deeply immersed, unexpected and terribly needy stage, I conceive these men can fix me, and that is not something I’ve thought about anyone from reality TV, ever. And this is because the men from Queer Eye seem( abnormally) 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 display, who is lovely to be addressed but I strongly suspect doesn’t even know how to turn on a stave .) This is what we talk about 😛 TAGEND
Tan is the easiest-going seeing, 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 circumstance parties expect me to wear, even though I know everyone is too busy thinking about their own lives are concerned about my outfits. So do I ponder my characterizing boast is my wardrobe because I shortfall 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 living 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 just is in relation to enjoyable wallpaper, and that there is a fine pipeline between a chamber that says,” This female forms bold, stylish affirmations !” and” This girl maybe prevents dried pampas grass in a monstrous Chinese urn .” I tell Bobby that, even though he is the least charismatic cast member, I know he works the hardest, and while all Karamo has to do is give pep talks in a automobile, Bobby has to carry literal ceiling on his literal back. He gazes 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 interrogation, after Antoni recommended it might be helpful for them to give a makeover to an all-out homophobe. Jonathan replied, in essence,” This is 2018, Antoni, and we don’t have time for your kumbaya politics, so stop bursting your back to accommodate haters, and fight for your truth instead .” As Jonathan would say, Y fool monarch .
But I likewise talk to Jonathan about my hair. I tell him that most of it fell out as a teenager, due to anorexia, and never grew back properly, and while most online mentions don’t bother me, when people snark about my hair I have- stack shame upon shame- hollered. Jonathan tells me I’m fabulous and those people are the literal worst, and he is right.
Karamo ( culture , whatever that signifies)
I think of Karamo as a constant, messianic, ridiculously handsome existence in my life, who gazes upon the choices I make and occasionally calls 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 cake in front of an escapade of Frasier I’ve seen four times at 2am.
I never talk to Antoni.
