Talking Project Runway

What's Jack up to? Why he's resting an relaxing this morning, looking no worse for the wear, after waking the house up at 4 a.m. He was barking for reasons we still don't know of. It seems suspiciously like he just wanted to play. Ugh, Jack.
Last night Project Runway was back with a new episode. I just love Project Runway. Every week it takes me back to my days and nights at FIT, sewing and working on a dress form.

I have to say I rolled my eyes when I found out that Hershey's was their surprise destination. Another candy Challenge? Haven't they learned from the past?
But at least this time they found a candy challenge that didn't have to be real candy. Can you believe how many pillows were in that store?

I do think that choosing Rami as the winner was right. The fit of his dress was just amazing. His workmanship was impeccable. Good for him. I have to say the fact that he can sew his butt off makes me soften a little about the fact that he's already a pretty established up and coming designer and his outfits have already been worn on the red carpet by celebrities like Jessica Alba. Just a little. I still wish it was a competition for young designers at a real starting out level.

I also have to say I was quietly rooting for Chris and after seeing the close up, I really loved his well thought out dress. Very Warhol-esque but wearable.
I was disappointed that Victorya wasn't in the bottom two. Yeah Sweet P's dress was a little boring, but it was wearable. Victorya's dress to me just wasn't.
Of course the right person left. Poor, spit marking, living on her own higher plain, Elisa. That brown Greta thing had to take her out. Bye,Elisa. You made for interesting TV.

On a final note. Where would this season be without Christian? Thanks for cracking me up again with those zany zingers and that asymmetrical windblown hair.

I was rooting for Chris, too, Kwana. I thought she could wear that dress out last night. Christian...well, he annoys the patookie out of me, but I guess the show needs him for entertainment value. Although, I don't see how glueing Reese's cup papers to a piece of fabric is "designing." I was more impressed with Austin Scarlett's first season corn-husk dress. = )

Maybe Jack is seeing ghosts? Maybe that's why he's barking so much? Just a thought!

I don't know what Jack's seeing but maybe my Ghosthunter friend can come and calm him down. I need my sleep!

Only you would remember Austin's corn-husk dress, Mar! I sure miss him. He was featured on That Real OC housewives show recently and was just as well turned out as ever.

I love Projec Runway and I hate that I missed a new episode. Thanks for the update!!

I totally thought Chris should win. His dress was awesome. This season would be so boring without Christian. We need another Santino. I honestly don't care if I see the show until the runway walk because this year's designers are just bleh.

And yeah, spitter girl needed to go; 2 shows ago.

Thanks Patricia, Mel and Gena. I'm so glad to know you girls are PR fans! I'll be sure to keep updating.
