Project Runway – Week 2

I don’t have anything to complain about this week.  I absolutely loved the dress that won, and hated the losing design.   I thought the winner was something that did look very wearable, if you were a bit edgy, and it wasn’t like you could see to China. I’d wear it to a Phenomenauts party.  The losing design was too shiny, too short, and too funky.   

I can’t wait until things get good and juicy.  I don’t have any favorites yet.  None of the designers have really stood out to me.   We’ll see how things shape up.

I’ve sort of started watching this Shear Genius show, just because it’s on right after Project Runway.  It’s OK.  I like my hair, but it’s hard for me to judge what makes a good hairstyle.  I just go into Wonder Dave and say, “make it more edgy, make it more blonde, make it less blonde, it’s too froofy, etc.”

Project Runway – Week 1 (No SPOILERS)

I whole heartedly agree with the elimination.  

As for the winner, I think she was the most innovative, which is what the challenge was about.  I really liked everything except for the bust portion.    I like what she did to make the material for the skirt.   

I think I liked the second place dress more, but I would not wear anything like that.  For that reason, I agree with the judges decision.

So, go watch it, and comment back to let me know what you think of my assessment.

In the Dark

You know what sucks?   When the power goes out.    You know what sucks even harder?  When the power goes out, and you’re in a new apartment, and you don’t remember where you put the flashlight, you can barely find the lighter to light the candles, and you’re all alone in a pitch black apartment with nothing to do.

Last night around 7:30, the power went out at The Rock.   I was in the middle of watching last week’s Project Runway episode that I missed.   (That’s a story in and of itself.)   Then all of sudden, everything went out with a flicker.   A moment later, the power came back, and I thought I was back to my SJP enhanced life.   But nnnooooo, it went right back out.   And it stayed out.   FOR THREE HOURS!

Pretty much everything I own needs to be plugged into a functional outlet in order to be entertaining.  The exception is my large collection of books.  (Still in boxes, thank you very much.)   Seriously, though, I don’t know how people managed to read by candlelight.   There was no way.  Of course, the candles I have are much more about wafting froo-froo scents than they are about casting a decent light.

So, I called my mom.  She rattled off a list of possibly entertaining activities for a dark evening.   Make cocoa – I don’t have any cocoa.   Make tea – all my tea is caffeinated, and I didn’t want to be up all night.   Unpack the books – I said entertaining.   Listen to the radio – I don’t have a battery powered radio.    All of her suggestions just reminded me how lame my apartment is.    It was a noble effort on her part, but it really wasn’t too helpful.

The power finally came back on at 10:30.   I got to see a little Sex and the City before I went back to sleep, but alas, they were done rerunning P.R., so hopefully I’ll be able to catch the end later.

Overall, I would say last night was very lame.

Just sayin’.
