here's an email forwarded to me from a fan that has very good powers of perception:

Subject: Personality Discussion
I know that I am "just a listener," and I don't know much, but...
Your conversation on Wed., where Dee analyzed the personalities of the show, made me think about how I peg you guys. Would you like to know my take on you? If not, just stop reading rightHERE!
If yes, please continue:
Terry: I think that Terry is just a tad insecure. He has an ego, perhaps resulting in his time spent inCalifornia. Terry seems to need a lot of attention, in fact, enjoys it. I can hear him smiling whenever anyone talks about him, be it positive or negative. Terry has a great heart, but sometimes I wish he'd let other people speak.
Lex: Poor Lex is always talked-over by Terry. It's as if whatever Lex has to say isn't important and he fights to be heard. I think that Lex is crabby because he's pushed out so often. He's edgy and cantankerous, but I find him to be fascinating. Lex is comfortable in his own skin, no matter how much of it there is.
Peter: Is the berated stepsister of Lex and Terry. No matter what he does, right or wrong, it will never be good enough for the "guys." Peter is the engine of the show, I imagine he does an awful lot to keep the show moving and interesting. I imagine he is highly valued by Lex and Terry.
Scott: I love Scott! He's the unassuming, average Joe of the show. I think he's very smart, funny, and with Peter, probably is one of the main reasons why the show is successful.
Dee: Gotta love him, he seems to be settling down and getting comfortable in his role on the show. His panties do seem to get in a wad when you all pay too little attention to him, though. I see him in his own show in a few years.
Taint: He's just a mess! It's a good thing that he has his five daddies there, to take care of him and guide him. Now here's a guy who definitely cannot take a back-seat to anyone new on the show, even if it's a guest. He has to be up front, doing something stupid to get the momentum back on himself. But he does bring a crazy, youthful energy to the show. I only hope that he doesn't let his "fame" go to his head and end up back in an obscure coffee shop with his dirty hair, groping himself for attention.
Love you all,
