Patrick vs Anderson?

screencap by liberation 337

Those of you who have been reading ATA for a while know I cheat on Anderson once a week. I've been waiting all summer for my other man to come back to prime time and tonight was the night. Damn ABC for forcing me into picking between Dr. McDreamy and adorkable Anderson Cooper. I hang my head in shame to admit I went with fluff over brains. Grey's Anatomy won out, but I did switch to 360 during the commercials. Usually I would just watch the second airing of 360 and never admit my weakness for Patrick. But it's opposite the second half of the Andy Warhol documentary on PBS, so my tape of Thursday's 360 will have to keep me company sometime over the weekend.


I felt guilty about this all day so I tried extra hard to get some new information for tonight's blog. I really don't like letting you down. First I checked on 60 Minutes, since the new season premieres on Sunday. According to their website this weeks segments will be anchored by Steve Kroft, Morley Safer and Katie Couric. I am going to tune in anyway just in case we get to hear 'I'm Anderson Cooper' with the clock ticking in the background.
Then I remembered a reader sent me something interesting over the weekend. There is a new Cooper family picture, that includes Chris and Stan, for sale on eBay. It their family Christmas card from 1970.
One final thing I'd like your opinion on. It's obvious that Anderson loves his red and black striped tie, but I don't. He's either lost, tossed or burned my favorite tie, the navy one with tiny white dots, since he hasn't worn it since his Letterman appearance. I'm just curious, what's you favorite Anderson tie?

What's my favorite tie? :D Guess?

Jennifer said...

I like the navy tie with the white stripes.

And, I cheated on Anderson too! But here, GA is on an hour before AC, so it worked out well.

My favourite tie is that bright blue one that is the same colour as his eyes! For sure!
Oh Anderson's eyes....much more interesting than my climate change assignment....

He hasn't worn my fave in a LONG time. The magenta with the diagonal navy stripes.

Phebe:

I don't like the red and blue striped tie, but I dislike the pinstriped suit even more.

My favorite tie is the same as yours....navy with the little dots.

I love the photo of little Anderson. He still has the same hairstyle.

I like the striped tie, but Iam not crazy about the pin stripe suit. I am going to go to NY and take him shopping, would anyone else like to go with me. Love your blog by the way.

The blue tie, then the purple one, although whatever tie or suit if Anderson is wearing it it's fine by me, after all HE is the one that gets all the best-dressed awards.

I agree with you about that tie. I hate it also. It reeks of gaudiness

lori said...

phebe, I also flipped back and forth between GA and 360.

I'm not crazy about that red/navy striped tie either -- magenta and navy, yes! I don't have a particular fave, but definitely prefer purple and blue on him.

@sandy: count me in! :)

phebe said...

Ouch anonoymous that's a little harsh, lol. Maybe someone very special gave it to him and that's why he wears it so often? If that's the case maybe my favorite tie was given by someone out of favor and I'll never see it again. Oh well, it's the man and the news that are really important, not the tie.

Kim said...

To be honest, he could sit there in a brown paper bag and make it look good.

It doesn't matter to me what he wears, as long as he is there.

Quitty said...

I am able to watch both McDreamy and Anderson. Like Jennifer, GA is on right before Anderson.

I like the red ties he wears that aren't striped. I guess I like the contrast between the dark suit, blue shirt, red tie, and silver locks.

Barbara said...

My favorite is the purple tie. I'm not too crazy about pin stripes but it does seem to be the fashion thing these days.

AndysGirl said...

hehe - the red and black striped one is my favorite. I love the pinstripe suits too. Although, as long as it's on Anderson, it looks good.

I think it's like the Lady Diana,everyone thought her clothes were so great until they auctioned them off and you saw them hanging on a mannequin or just hanging. It turned out they didn't look that impressive, it was Diana that made them look so extra special.

I'm torn between the bright blue (it really does make his eyes shine!) and the purple (which is so unique). Both are fabulous. But he looks good in everything.

Patrick vs. Anderson? No contest, Andy wins hands down (no boos and hisses from GA fans, please).

I'm not very found of the red & black stripe tie. I like the dotted tie, but I've got this thing about dotted ties worn with pin stripe suits.

My fav- the purple tie.
Second fav- the bright blue tie

RD said...

i like the tie, but he can certainly do better. i like the dark blue tie with the faintest white pinstripes on it. he wore it with a grey shirt and black suit. great great outfit that night :)

I like the white and black striped tie. Goes well with his silver fox hair!

Rita said...

I believe he has a black and silver tie, i like that one!
