Will These Two Bitches EVER Shut Up?

Posted on September 12, 2012

Darlings, we’re going to go on the assumption that you’re not at all sick of reading about us (an assumption which is not at all assured), and direct you to our latest conquest of the media (as well as another pretty picture of us) at the Philadelphia Daily News. Local Boys Done Good and all that.

 ”Their success is not as easy as posting some photos and pouring themselves a cocktail. They put up about 10 to 14 posts a day. Other popular blogs with similar output, like Perez Hilton or Just Jared, work with a full staff.

Fitzgerald, who has a film degree, is the “big nerd guy,” who does most of the writing. Marquez is the fashion obsessive who meticulously scours photo services for the perfect pictures.

They see themselves as “educated outsiders” critiquing fashion. “We’re describing people’s clothes. It’s a grand human tradition,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m sure we were doing it in caves. ‘I can’t believe he’s wearing yak fur this season. Whatever.’ Anybody can do it.”

But Tom and Lorenzo have created their own niche. There were few other sites regularly recapping “Project Runway” when they started in 2006, and their pop-culture focus has helped them draw TV geeks as well as people whose annual highlight is Vogue‘s huge September issue.

The voice they’ve tried to cultivate, in their own words, is that of your saucy, gay best friend, who will tell you that, yes, you do look fat in those jeans.

But he loves you anyway.”

Y’know… it’s gonna be awfully difficult going back to cleaning litter boxes and working all day in drawstring pants after the week we’ve been having. But that’s what we keep saying every time someone congratulates us on the recent spate of good news: “We’re just having a really good month right now”

Thankfully, between our actual cats (who we miss TERRIBLY while we’re away being fab) and our Bitter Kittens, we’re pretty sure we can keep our heads on straight and roughly the correct size.

    Congrats TLo! You are the best!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YVVJ5LZ7Y4OZDTFEWSAFTTWAJU Purple Fish

    Congrats! So proud of you two.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Lordy, I sure hope you two don’t shut up. You are a continually delightful addition my daily life.   Props, Gentlemen!
    (btw, Lorenzo, I want your shoes)

    • DeborahJozayt

      My husband wants Tom’s! We won’t have to fight about it! Yay!

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         I’m much closer to Lorenzo’s size anyhow. I would swim in Tom’s gorgeous shoes.

      • Samuel Donovan

        I’m digging Tom’s as well; denim and topstitching? HOT.

    • angryparsnip

       Agreed !
      and I want the shoes too.
      Plus anyone who uses “Lordy” in a comment is gold in my book.

      cheers,  parsnip

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Can I tell you how I love your screen name? Marvelous. It ought a be a band.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

       They wouldn’t fit me, but boy, TLo have a good shoe wardrobe!

  • StephenTrask

    Congratulations. BTW, you two are far more handsome than your caricatures imply. Whomever drew those needs a spanking.

  • TobiannReinhard

    Congrats, boys!!! You deserve all of the accolades you are getting and so much more!

    Note to self: Must spend more time in Queen Village to stalk…er, um, I mean…bump into T & Lo.

    • PhillyJen

      I’m with you. We can casually stroll around for a couple of days clutching copies of the Daily News. 

  • Vera L-

    Richly deserved attention for my favorite bloggers!

  • lovelyivy

    You earned your really good month the hard way. Enjoy the glow!

  • SewingSiren

    Wonderful. This picture captures you  better than the one in the NYT. Love the shoes, velvet love seat, and green glasses.

  • http://twitter.com/AShinyOConnor A Shiny O’Connor

    Never get sick of reading about how the world is waking up the fabulous opinionated-ness of TLo. And I can’t believe you don’t got interns (call me!).

  • 3boysful

    Tire of you?  Never.  So happy that nice things do happen to nice (albeit snarky!) guys!  Big hugs to you both.

  • neofashionista

    This is some awesome and well deserved praise congrats!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mfwightman Michael Wightman

    Though I am already fabulous, you both inspire me to attain new heights on a daily basis!  Do NOT shut up and if your heads get too big, the BK’s claw the sense right back into you. Nous vous adorons!!

  • Scimommy

    This bitter kitten is just looking forward to the book tour so she can meet you and touch your hair.

    Not helping with the big head, am I?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      And those fabulous shoes they have been wearing in photographs.

  • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

    Congrats again, gentlemen! Your success is truly inspiring. I’m still searching for that thing that I’m good at/love to do/makes me happy/pays my bills.

  • http://twitter.com/Hussified Coleen

    SO exciting to see the hometown props. I hope you never, ever shut up. 

  • Judy_S

    Great picture here. I like the copy too. A bit more matter of fact than the Times article. 

  • carolynmo

    I’m proud of you two! Keep having fun at Fashion Week!

  • annie_wonder

    Great article, great soundbites, and great shoes! TLo to a tee.

  • StillGary

    Bask in the glow — you deserve it for making our lives a little more fabulous each day — but I wouldn’t be a bitter kitten if I didn’t point out the only poop in the pudding — please PDN, don’t ever compare TLo to the hack who should never be mentioned.

  • MilaXX

    I’m gonna have to go out & pick up a copy in my travels today. Congrats to you both.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_5UQHEKG5EDX4T6NMARUC565TPQ Amy

    If we can “take” the latest Ewan Mcgregor spread or Katy Perry not looking like Katy Perry in yet another magazine…then we can certainly handle more of you guys. Congrats and keep the articles/fab photos coming!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Erin-Hines/620149309 Erin Hines

    So happy for you guys! 

  • Ashley B

    Yak fur! OMG, I love you guys so much. Congrats on all your success! You very much deserve it. 

  • ringthing

    I’m so happy for you guys. Y’all make me laugh every day. I hope someone in your media coverage discovers your meticulous and beyond fabulous tv recaps, esp of Mad Men.

  • http://smalltownbigwardrobe.wordpress.com Catherine

    God I just want to hug you two. And then steal Lorenzo’s shoes.

  • MoHub

    Bravi!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I will never tire of hearing you get the acknowledgment you so very rightly deserve.  It’s refreshing to be on a site where there is no hate speech or attacking in the blog or in the commentary. We are all truly having fun interacting.  It’s a pleasure to spend my days with you and the Bitter Kittens. 

  • poggi

    Screw humility.  There will always be something that will eventually bring you back to reality (it often involves cleaning up someone or something else’s spew).  For now, bask in your own fabulousness.  Congratulations (and again, you both look smart and stylish).
     

  • http://twitter.com/goheels83 MLB

    That’s awesome boys!!!  Ya’ll have put in lots and lots of hard work.   You deserve every bit of this praise.

  • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

    Awesome, boys! The amount of posts you’ve done while at Fashion Week should absolutely qualify you for an award of some kind. Thank you for making us almost feel like we’re there with you.

  • http://twitter.com/TheScottFinley Scott Finley

    I covet both your Florshein by Ducky Brown shoes.

    And incredibly happy for both of you. You’re two really terrific guys.

  • Lilithcat

    An excellent article.  Congratulations, guys, and I’m looking forward to your book.

    it’s gonna be awfully difficult going back to cleaning litter boxes

    Ah, yes, our cats do know how to put us in our proper place, don’t they?

  • Le_Sigh

    Don’t ever shut up.  EVAH.  You go on with your bad selves!!!!!!

    Many many many congrats – and I hope to bump into you fabulously somehow while you’re here in NYC!

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    Love your blue socks, Lo. Nice pop of color!

  • Alisa Rivera

    Nice! I like this one better than the NY Times profile. And Lorenzo’s shoes!!!!! 

  • ecallaw1977

    Warms my heart.  So happy for you two!

  • Ozski

    Mazel Tov again to you two rakish fellows. Also, LOVE the shoes!!!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/TWAL66B4EJKOEBPVR4HTB7LYOI Alexandra

    Your success is so well deserved!! All the bitter kittens and unborn fawns, as well as plain old bitches, thank you for all the fun so far! I think I’m dressing a whole lot better, too – I think “what would TLo say (WWTLS)?”

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=558631967 Ivona Foster

    So so happy for you guys! Totally deserved and an awesome photo, love the shoes!

  • dress_up_doll

    Terrific article and fabulous photo guys! Congratulations! I’ll definitely be picking up the paper at lunch to add to my TLo press collection.

  • Amy Fee Garner

    And the cool thing is that when we kittens and fawns bow down to your greatness, you reward us with a view of your fabulous shoes.  Don’t ever shut up!!!

  • gsk241

    Will these two bitches ever shut up?  I sure as fuck hope not!

  • miagain

    You deserve every ounce of accolades…
    “We’re just having a really good month right now”  well YOUR good month is OUR good month!!

  • formerlyAnon

    Congrats yet again! Except for the absence of kudos from Joe Zee, this is an even better feature than the one in the Times. I think it captures what you do in your blog better.

    Plus, Lorenzo, THIS is what you really look like. I’m sure of it!

    The next book has got to be a health & wellness guide – I can’t keep up with everything you’ve been putting up since fashion week started, I don’t now how you’re doing it.

    I saw you in the front row – what show was it… Vera Wang, I think.  Tom was counting.  There you were, all famous and stuff.  Congratulations. I wonder what it would look like if you showed up to a show with your cats in a little stroller…?

  • Deidre Robbers

    Dearest Tom and Lorenzo, Props to you both!  You have been my daily ray of sunshine from across the sea in Saudi Arabia where the height of fashion is how much detail you have on your Abaya.  As it’s the middle of the night while you’re posting your fabulosity, I look forward to having my coffee and reading your blog at the crack of dawn before I have to wake up the family for work and school.  Here’s to many more years of greatness!  XXOO   Your Expat Unborn Fawn from afar.

    It’s just thrilling to see you getting such great recognition! I’ve loved you since your earliest posts and this seems long overdue!

  • EEKstl

    Congratulations and well-deserved recognition to my Daily Rays of Sunshine.  And may I say how adorable you both look in that pic.  And may I say also that this is one Bitter Kitten (one of the multitudes in the BK litter) whose world would be a little less fabulous without you.  We love you, TLo!

  • Clueless_Jock

    Great pic, but where are the cats?

  • Bozhi

    You guys look great.  Love your shoes Lorenzo.

    Once Fashion Week is over you can eat carbs again, too.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    First of all, you two are KILLING me with your fabulous shoes. I really have to take the boyfriend shoe shopping.

    Secondly, a well-deserved congratulations! I have been hanging around here since the days of Rungay and I gotta say, you guys brighten my day EVERY day. Wishing you continued success!
    Your devoted bitter kitten,
    Lulu

  • meowing

  • tereliz

    Another well-deserved article! Y’all are amazing.

  • JuliaInBlack

    Yayy!!! The headline made me think of Churchill’s famous speech about never surrendering.  ”We shall judge all the bitches, we shall critique them on the red carpet, we shall assess in the fields and in the streets, we shall blog in the hills; we shall never shut up.”  Love you guys!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_RHLSUVX3NCPB4OSS5BM7GZIXUE P. Capet

    you will have to give your cats a good quiet serious talking to when you return and heap massive amounts of blame on yourselves for going away.  after that, everything should be fine.

  • granddelusion

    You better not ever shut up! (and I totally dig those shoes! Both pairs!)

    • granddelusion

      But, my god! When will you talk MORE about PR? You’re the only reason I watch that show! (admittedly, with the sound off)

    Rightly or wrongly (as in, I’m sorry if this creeps you out, TLo) I am enjoying this like I would if a real life friend was enjoying all this success.  Like a lot of the BKs, I’ve been with you a long time, and you’re a morning coffee tradition for me.  And I don’t even follow fashion, watch Project Runway anymore, or even find time for Dr. Who (sob) — it’s all about you two.  So, NO SHUTTING UP.  I don’t get out much, bitches — keep making with the vicarious fun.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1069083922 Brady Galan

    Love you guys so much!  Don’t change a thing!

  • PaperPusher2

    OMG…since 2006?!  Has it really been that long, TLo?  It feels just like yesterday I was hitting refresh endlessly on your blogspot the day after an episode aired to get your take/photoshop manips on it.  As others have said repeatedly, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU GUYS!!!!

    Pam 

  • tallgirl1204

    I’ve been here since the Rungay days as well, and I have to add a bit about why I stay.  (1) the rule about not snarking on people’s fundamental looks– not allowing the commentariat to stray into comments about weight, physical features, etc– it’s not about a person’s looks, it’s what s/he does with them and (2) not allowing (accidentally or not) the blog to become political.  I am so tired of reading articles on news sites about innocuous topics (for example, recently, how to throw a baseball) and see the comments immediately degrade into political slanging.  I’m at Tom and Lorenzo to look at fabulous (or not) clothes worn fabulously (or not), to understand a little bit more about how theater/t.v. use costumes and design to tell a story, and to get my pretty for the day.  Also, Thanks, guys, for all you do. 

    • watchmeboogie

      Agreed on both points. You’ve managed to toe lots of lines with grace and aplomb, TLo. Hopefully you know how much we all appreciate it.

  • http://profiles.google.com/saramichelef Sarah Michele Ford

    You will not. And that’s why you’re getting all this fabulous press and why we bitter kittens love you.

  • http://twitter.com/MissBunnyBixler Bunny Bixler

    What a fabulous photo of you two! 

  • juliamargaret

    Congratulations! It is great to see your hard work, great writing, and fab photo-sourcing celebrated in this way.  Love both your shoes and Tom’s glasses in the photo! Enjoy the rest of this fantastic week: it is fun living vicariously through you both.
    By the way, are all your crowd photos at FW taken by the two of you? If so, I am in total awe. Even if only some of them are, I am in awe–I can’t imagine asking those grumpy, hungry, shoved, and sweaty celebs to pose!

  • fungstyle

    Much deserved. Bitch(es). Said with love darlings. I have no doubt you’ll stay fabulously down to earth and I just can’t wait to meet you when you’re in Chicago for a book signing in 2014. <3

  • momogus

    Front page of my Daily News this morning – what a treat! It’s the first article in a long time that I read before my Phillies news. Congrats!!

  • Susan Crawford

    Never stop! Always tell us when our jeans make our butts look big! Because we NEED that, boyz. And here’s to your continued fabulosity and success.

  • kmiller1k

    Love you two. First blog I read each day–my dose of art for my morning.

    Also you should know that after reading your fashion critiques for five years (!!) I find myself looking at my own outfits and others’ ensembles and am able to pick out what’s right and what needs attention instinctively. It is like waking up after dreaming in a foreign language for the first time–did I really do that? Why yes I did. And it’s all due to TLo. Mwah!

  • Snailstsichr

    Kudos! FWIW, my oft-traveling husband is thrilled I have you two to entertain me while he is on the road. When he calls to check in, he often asks what was the hot news in your blog. Wishing you both more years of success!

  • http://twitter.com/KathrynTewson Kathryn Tewson

    This is the only fashion blog I read, because it’s the only one that comes without a side order of body snark and misogyny. Thank you for that.

  • blue0moon

    You’ve both given so many years of enjoyment to us all…even the fashion uninitiated! Thanks to you, I can actually speak whole sentences about clothing and style with my born-chic, ballet dancer daughter. 
    Plus, you speak to my inner Snark.  
    Every bit of recognition that comes your way is richly deserved!

  • Jennifer Jacobsen-Wood

    Congratulations!  Reading your blog on a tough work day (which, admittedly, is usually just an accumulation of small annoyances; I work in an office, it’s not like I’m working in an ER or teaching a bunch of rugrats) always makes me smile.

    It’s so great to see you getting this recognition.  Love your blog and recommend it all the time.  I enjoy the blog and only wish you “covered” more of the TV programs I like.  I started sharing your Mad Men reviews with my husband and he loved them, noting what good writers you are.  Major congrats!

  • Avantika Sharma

    Well done, my fave bloggers! But why is it that Philadelphia Daily News recognized your fabulousness only after NYTimes did? Not cool, philly.com. Or was that a coincidence? 

    PS: I had a dream last night that TLo were actually my best friends. They came over to my apartment for dinner and told me they love the colors I was wearing. Does that mean I spend too much time on this blog? :s 

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Awesome.  And I love the image of the caveman complaining about yak fur, too.  You know that conversation happened.

  • unbornfawn

    Congratulations. A great article. I’m so proud to be a bitter kitten right now.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Late to the love-fest today (though not to the team as I’ve been on board from Day 1 or 2, as T & L say), but no less enthused at the recognition you’re receiving.  Well done, gentlemen – bask!  And I see that Seth Aaron praised you in the Philly Inquirer comments, too.  Lots of cheering from the multitudes!

  • Christiane Truelove

    Dear TLo, if I happen to run into you one day while in Queen Village, I promise I will not lose my shit. :-) Used to be down there a lot more when my hubby DJ’s a night at Ulana’s (which you probably called, “What the hell are those crazy goth kids wearing now?”).

  • Joshua

    I’ve been a little hard on you guys before because, well, opinions differ. But you know, you two deserve some good press (not to mention a month off, lol). Keep up the great work, and whatever self-conscious misgivings you may have, I think we’re all so interested in your personal life we don’t care if information comes in the form of a shameless plug. :)

    In the increasingly polluted blogosphere, yours continually shines as a beacon of quality, intelligence and civility, not to mention humor. Which is why I’m continually scurrying back here after venturing into the proverbial jungle, it’s truly a breath of fresh air. So nice to see you getting the recognition you so richly deserve. Congrats. Again!

  • TieDye64

    Congrats guys! No, never shut up. Great photo.

    Oh, and your shoes are kickass.

  • momjamin

    That really is fabulous, but who the heck are “Fitzgerald” and “Marquez”?

  • CatherineRhodes

    You make me proud to be a longtime Bitter Kitten. Keep up the good work — I love your site.

    Congrats, love the article! 

    And I love reading you two every day, so I second the fact I hope you never shut up. I don’t know what I’d do with myself. 

  • MizzDarcy

    I’ve been reading your blog daily since you started…and can’t thank you enough for the many loud, out-loud laughs you have given me.  LOVE my TLo!!

  • AELM

     So happy for you! I have always appreciated that in addition to being funny and extremely knowledgeable about fashion, the two of you are also feminists and your commentary reflects that. So refreshing to read a fashion blog that combines humor, snark, and good values. Thanks!

  • kjthorp

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I’m totally verklempt. XO

  • elirt

    Love you guys! Keep it up – you are my highlight at work!

    Love you guys, and SO proud of you! I really do feel like it’s my own favorite uncles who hit it big. 

  • kimmeister

    Oooh, I just noticed the color on the side of Tom’s glasses.  Nice!

    I, too, miss my kitties TERRIBLY when I travel.

  • h2olovngrl

    I remember when the blog was strictly Project Runway, and sometimes when a post was just a little funny picture with a quick blurb. Although I only post on here upon occasion, I check it almost everyday, and have always enjoyed the different directions in which you have gone. Thank you for all the humor over the last six years, thank you for getting me into great shows, like Mad Men, Thank you for the daily doses of fashion and beauty, and lastly, congratulations, from someone who remembers.

    Don’t worry-it’s not like you’re Kardashians (who, by the way, owe EVERYONE a huge apology for crawling out from under their rock).  You have style, talent, flair, and intelligence, tempered with quite the biting sense of humour.  You’ve earned your fame.  The Bitter Kittens and Unborn Fawns would be the first to let you know if you’re in danger of coming down with swelled heads.  Er, maybe not the best choice of words but you know what was meant.

    You guys are adorable. 

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    You guys look good.

  • Tanja Kuret

    Nice to see/read a bit about the other side as well. Congratulations. You deserve every good thing coming your way.

    Lorenzo! Love your shoes! 

  • SapphoPoet

    Huzzah! All the good coverage is well deserved. Honestly, some days your site keeps me going. :)

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Sweet kicks T and fab sock/shoe combo Lo. You fully deserve the recognition, you’ve worked your asses off for it.

    Snaps up, guys!

  • Kelly Kerwin

    You guys deserve every ounce of it!

    Adore you!  You can thank my friend Michael Drummond from PR for that!  He directed me to you and I have never strayed!  Thanks for making me LOL all the time….They do say laughter is the best medicine….  :)  Hugs!

  • http://twitter.com/Wint3rhart Winterhart

    How fabulous!  Congratulations, TLo!   (I still covet those blue shoes!)

  • Elizabetta1022

    Yours is the only blog I read regularly. Love you guys. Wishing you many wonderful moments in the coming year! Toasting you from my computer with a big glass of red. TLo, Tlo, Tlo!

  • pokokpuding

    Done good indeed! I am proud to say I have been (quietly) following you guys since you wrote about the first season of PR. All your success is WELL deserved. *love*

  • la_fwee

    Your readership doesn’t want you to to ever shut up. Youse guise are bringing the best fashion critiques to us plebes, doing it with wit, humor, and just a dash of blue collar sensibility with a fabulous gay twist. Don’t EVAR stop!

  • watchmeboogie

    Fabulous!! And darlings, I have never, and will never, become sick of hearing about you. xx

  • lucasuk82

    Congrats!  I love the blue socks, Lorenzo!

  • ChristinaRi

    Love you both, but  Lo — that’s a no on the shoes and T?   No white pants after labor day.  

  • http://www.facebook.com/bert.keeter Bert Keeter

    You two WERQ those draw string pants…okay!

  • ZnSD

    Condragulations! Now get back to work. Your unborn fawns NEED the rest of your posts.  lol xoxox

  • Lexie

    Yay! You guys deserve it. Hands down my favorite blog on the interwebz. And that picture is adorable!

  • http://twitter.com/ChelleSparks Chelle

    Dapper as fuck. <3

  • Toto Maya

    I’ve been reading this blog for years now and I’ve never even seen your last names.

  • Amy Ennis

    I am so proud of you guys! And to think I read you back when you were little ol’ Project Rungay! So proud!

  • ratgirlagogo

    I’m jumping up and down with happiness for both of you.  And what kind of a nerdette am I that I keep buttonholing my friends about these articles and telling them that THESE are the guys that do that fantastic blog I’m always quoting from?   Oh my but we fangirls are scary.

  • rainwood1

    I love reading the publicity about the success you two have had, T Lo, because you’ve earned it.   You aren’t the Kardashians, and that’s always a good thing.  

    You each have talents that complement the other’s, you work really hard and with passion, and you navigate the fine line between insider and outsider.  We get some of the close-up dish without the fawning and ass-kissing that usually goes with it.  Congrats, boys, you are a well-deserved success story.  

    NOW shut up about it, and go scoop that litter.

  • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

    Thank you so much for your kind words, darlings. You guys rock!

    • Melvis Velour

      WERQ!

  • guest2visits

    More congrats -  always interesting, always entertaining. Thanks guys.

  • Call me Bee

    I am honored to “know” you and to be one of your Bitter Kitten/Precious Unborn Fawns/One Way Monkeys.  Congrats on all the great press and recognition.  It’s about time! 

  • girliecue

    Speaking of your heads, I’m so sad we didn’t get to play Spot Tom’s Tiny Head this MBFW. Now that y’all have conquered the world (it was only a matter of time) I guess you won’t be relegated to the nosebleed section any longer. Which is a big YAY for you guys, but I must say playing STTH was my very favorite part of Fashion Week. We’ll have to come up with a new game now that you two are front row fodder. Maybe you could try to get the runway models to laugh or trip, or get your shoes in as many snaps of celebs as possible. Hmmm….

  • MrsKrause

    You deserve every accolade.
     

  • http://twitter.com/felicityd Felicity Darwen

    Fabulous. :)

  • Judih1

    You deserve all this recognition and perks – and more. Thanks for keeping the bitter kittens happy for all these years. And I love it that you guys followed your passion and look where it to you. Lorenzo has every right to say ” I told you so.”

  • http://www.fatladysings.us/ TFLS

    So happy for you both!  And it’s always nice to hear good news (especially well-deserved good news happening to fantabulous people).  That’s kinda in short supply around our casa, as my hubby was one of the 4K Google (in conjunction with Motorola [those rats]) laid off last month.  That makes me strictly a fashion observer these days.  Shoe and accessory shopping has been put on hold; at least for the time being. 

    So keep it coming, my darlings!  Feed us the details.  We share every cocktail, every air kiss!  You get your own show on E! – and we’ll all be there with (quite decorative) bells on!!   

  • aristida_girl

    Love! Keep it coming,so proud of you guys.. (and you look great to boot!)

  • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

    If you ever shut up, all joy will have exited the internet.  Upload your brains to a satellite now, before it’s too late.

  • Cat_In_A_Hat

    Congrats, you two! You both look fabulous. Xx

  • Sweetvegan

    We’re not sick of hearing about you and your adventures! Congratulations, and I’m sure we’ll see many more!

  • SVLynn

    I do not like the thought of you two ever shutting up!! Best blog on the internet, and what a great photo, congrats!

  • SpcilK

    Bravo! You make my days.

  • Lazy Iggy

    I will never grow tired of hearing you speak! Never!  This is going to sound weird – even though I don’t know you personally, I feel so proud of your achievements like I do.  Reading project rungay on blogspot during college classes…reading projectrungay.com (and winning a weekly prize, thank you!) during grad school…reading tomandlorezo.com during work…I’m getting all verklempt….and rambly..so Congrats again!!

  • librarygrrl64

    So thrilled for your continued success, and so proud that you’re hometown boys. Keep the sauciness coming! xxxooo

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Congratulations, Tom and Lo!  All this would not have happened without your witty commentary, dedication, and devotion to PR and fashion as a whole.  Very happy for you both!

    Oh, have big heads for a little bit!

    You work (past and present tense) very hard, and your attention to detail, in content and tone, is part of what makes your site so eminently readable.

    You done good, kids. 

  • bluefish

    Congrats again!  Never tire of reading about you too.  Great photo.  My daily dose of fun, happiness, fashion, and very very good writing and visuals.  The regulars writing you back are pretty damn terrific also.  So important to be able to have a really good laugh at least once a day.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=668300493 Patsye Dickinson Peebles

    Congratulations, dear old friends.  There are thousands of us out in internet land who have never met you but feel as though you are our dearest drinking and shopping buddies!  You have fabulous wicked but not mean wit, great vocabulary, an eye for the ridiculous, and an endearing humility.  How could we not love you?  I am very happy to have been along for the ride and will continue to be as long as my aging brain holds out!  Loveyameanit!
