I’m generally anti-spoiler but I haven’t been able to NOT look at the gorgeous on-set pictures popping up — I think everyone’s better looking this season. I like Dan’s new hair. I like Jenny’s super extensions. I like Chuck’s tan. And it feels like there are even more guest stars: Tyra, Hilary Duff, and Sonic Youth! (Remember the cover of “Sheena Is a Punk Rocker” that played at Jenny’s guerrilla fashion show last season? That was Thurston Moore, of Sonic Youth, with Jemina Pearl — a cover just for Gossip Girl.)
The other night I dreamed that I watched the premiere of season 3. I don’t remember what happened in the dream version, but I do remember that there was no Lily and Rufus, no Vanessa (but Dan said he wasn’t speaking to her), and no Jenny. I think that may have something to do with the lack of WTF promos for those characters. My favorite is this Blair/Dan one:
(The next line, in my head, after D touches her, Blair says, “Only my boyfriend gets to touch my hair.”)
And we’ve booked a date for the launch party of my book: Monday September 14! I’ll post the details soon, but the general game plan: cocktails & snacks & general merriment followed by the premiere of season 3! So save the date, Torontonians.
