"(Where?) Down in my heart! (Who?) Down in my heart!" Where is the Rod and Tod Flanders fic, you guys? There needs to be some. There also needs to be a story wherein the Old Spice Man and the Keith Stone (Keystone) guy meet and out awesome each other. I've been thinking of that last one for days, and even my husband wants that story.

I have officially become an old person. Why? Because I continually laugh at my old lame jokes that I continue to use, even though I know it's old and lame. You know that person, the "Hot enough for ya?" guy. That's me. Case in point: I have walked around my house squinting for a solid half hour, remembered that i should put on my glasses and said - as I always do - "I can't see a thing without my glasses!" in my Velma voice. And laughed at myself. AS I ALWAYS DO.

When you're ashamed of yourself for not being ashamed of yourself... A vortex should have opened sucking me into another galaxy, but it didn't.

It is raining today! It rained yesterday, too! Ease up there, Hoss, on the joyfulness of autumn because I STILL DON'T HAVE MY POOL. I don't care if I get hypothermia, once it's done I am going to sit on a damned floaty with a cold cocktail in my hand, teeth chattering, and float in that mo-fo until I feel like I have had my proper summertime pool experience.

I am wearing PANTS. (As opposed to shorts, I'm no exhibitionist.) it is chilled outside! It's like, 73! I may need a sweater. :) It is SO cold in fact (lol) that I am making cold weather food: chicken fried venison steaks, twice baked potatoes, and probably some sort of salad to make me feel less guilty. AND RED WINE. The first wine of the season. (I don't do white wine. Pleh.) OH SPEAKING OF,

I'm super behind on Top Chef [spoilers to follow] and saw it last night. The quick fire challenge where they had to pair the wine with the food? And one of the wines featured is one of the worst I've ever put in my mouth? It was like I licked a skunk's behind after it sat in fish scales for three days? EVOLUTION. I am not a fan of Oregon wines, first of all, and second of all, it was a white, and third of all, it tastes like an old sock pulled off the butt of said skunk. GROSS. I was bothered that Angelo won, mostly because there was red meat and red wine in that room and I wanted to eat it all. OM NOM NOM. Also, I'm super sad Tiffany is gone, because she was my favorite cheftestant. Ahahaha, I hate that word.

I don't even know what to say about Project Runway, for those watching this season. Tell me your thoughts.

In other news, I have a new internet venture that will hopefully be live in a week, so I fully expect all of you to click daily and make me famous. Ahaha. More to come on that next week! (Note: that's where I'm going to be talking about all of the crappy TV I love, like Jersey Shore, Real Housewives, etc.)

HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND, FOLKS. Enjoy the time off, for those of you without work on Monday.

FUCK YEAH!!! *makes grabby hands* It's ridiculous how much I enjoy those commercials. And maybe Mayhem from All State could come careening through.

I am also sad that Tiffany's gone. I think she's a much better chef than Kevin. And if Antonio wins this season...OMG...I will...I don't even... *tiny fists of rage*

Project Runway. 1) I'm sad Peach is gone just because she was such good people. 2) I HATE Ivy. I have never seen such a bitchy brown-noser in my life. 3) While I think that Gretchen is talented, I don't understand the other competitor's falling all over every word she says. 4) Michael. Each time he's won, I thought that there was a better dress than his (1st time: the other Michael, this time: Mondo), but I don't think he's the untalented hack that the other designers seem to think he is. I think it's going to come down to Gretchen, Mondo and Christopher this season.

Sorry about the pool bb. You shall have it soon! And then, for the rest of your life.

I really didn't expect Kevin to make it this far, he's been so inconsistent! Angelo is a putz. I bet he makes fabulous food, but he's so pretentious. I love that Anthony Bourdain (ungh) was all, "I have no idea what you're talking about. And I'm Anthony - stand nekkid with a tomahawk chop - Bourdain."

I loved Peach, too, but her clothes were... not good. I hate Ivy so much, oh my GOD. She's rotten!! I didn't care for the dress Michael C made this time either, BUT. I think because there was some deign happening and it wasn't just a sheath (albeit a beautiful sheath) that Mondo made, that's why he won. But I wouldn't have worn it.

I WOULD GET IT. And even better, I would laugh.

The longer eps are allowing for more backstage in-fighting, which is good TV, I won't lie.

None of them seem particularly talented but sanctimonious bohemian chick wears on my last nerve.
Sep. 3rd, 2010 03:51 pm (UTC)
Oh, isn't she horrid?? That's Gretchen. She makes awful faces, too. Those I like, because it's to tsk tsk her by. ;)

MIMITW: I don't often drink beer-
Keith Stone: GASP!
MIMITW: But when I do-
OldSpice: I'm on a horse.
MIMITW: Stay thirsty, my friends. *hang glides away*

The only contestant on Top Chef whom I even VAGUELY care about is out, and Project Runway is full of cattier bitches and people who produce abominations (and some of them overlap)! WOE.

Project Runway: Here be spoilers.

There were a lot of execution issues with Michael C.'s look, but the idea showed style and design chops. Mondo's and Chris's were both cute and well executed but really didn't read "fashion" to me. So I think he got the win for that (though I think I remember April's being really good and being surprised that she wasn't in the top 3).

Aaaanyway while I probably wouldn't have picked Michael C. for the win I did love the deliciousness of Ivy and Gretchen all flaily and angry because the judges loved his work again. Schadenfreude, it is so sweet.

Ivy is . . . I don't even know. She seems to have totally made up the rumor that Michael C was telling people she was a bitch. I think she's probably pretty unhinged from reality. And Gretchen just reads textbook narcissist to me.
Sep. 3rd, 2010 04:24 pm (UTC)
Also, I'm pretty impressed by how much drama the judges are managing to milk out of this! They must have been totally salivating when Michael C. picked Gretchen for his team.

When you're ashamed of yourself for not being ashamed of yourself...

WELCOME TO THE POST-TOM HARDY ERA OF MY LIFE. I have watched that workout video approximately 47 times so far and am only taking a break for lunch. SEND HALP.

I have finally entered your realm, AND I AM NOT FULLY PREPARED. I don't even have a proper first aid kit. (Booze, remote batteries, Tom Hardy... toys, etc.)

I've been slowly easing my way into drinking wine, which I don't do as much as I'd like. I haven't really found a red that I like that much, but I seem to like really dry white wines. I want to like reds too!

Was so sad to see Tiffany go! She's been my favorite by far. I really don't want to see Angelo win the whole thing, but that's kind of what I'm expecting. Ugh. And Anthony Bourdain... mmmmm... I have strong urges to climb him.
Sep. 3rd, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
"which I don't do as much as I'd like." You are someone after my own heart. I think it's the dryness of whites that I *don't* like. I like the big, bold, spicy flavors of red. (Have you had Santa Margherita's Pinot Grigio? That's the only white I like.)

I LOVE ANTHONY BOURDAIN. Ungh, he is delicious.

I never miss a season of this show, and this season is WHY. I love the challenges, I love Heidi (OMG love her.) I love Tim Gunn (I am appalled that you allowed Gretchen to manipulate and bully you!) and this season is filled with drama.

Gretchen (as Chris says) looks just like John Malcovich, and is just as egocentric. Fuck, I hate her. Ivy is a little busybody who can't style her way out of a sack. I'm kind of rooting for Michael, in that weird sort of underdoggy way, even though he is kinda bitchy. I don't know, I love his bitchiness. I LOVE how he rubs it in. Because it makes for good TV.

While I loved the Schadenfreude of the win, I... I didn't see the appeal of Michael C's dress. The top was all over the place and the skirt didn't wow me. I thought that Mondo was going to win that one. The construction on his dress was insane! Ivy can go DIAF. It was painfully obvious that she made up the rumor about Michael C. Insecurity much? Getchen wasn't such an ass this week, which was nice. I'm sad to see Peach go, but none of her outfits ever called out to me.
Sep. 3rd, 2010 08:36 pm (UTC)
It's 100 degrees here. I would gladly take all the joyfulness of autumn you can spare. In fact, if I may...

Spring be gone and summer too.
I bid your sunlit days adieu,
And gladly all your charms eschew.
I’m wholly sick of both of you.

Written by me, hating the heat.

Wretchen and Ivy are spawns of satan. The Mean Girls sooo much.

I was happy for this week's winner if ONLY to see them upset.

RAIN. COOL WEATHER. I has a happy. And it's still warm enough for pool. (Says the girl from the Northeast!)

I love that Lifetime has said, "We have a hit show here- how can we make it better? Oh yeah SHOW MORE!" and gave us the extra half hour of backstage. That's briliant! They didn't change the format, they didn't dump any of the people who work there, and nobody had to go into labor in the middle of an episode, they just gave us more of the same! Amazingly intelligent decision. Now I wonder what we would have seen if we'd had an extra half hour of Wendy Pepper driving everyone nuts, or Santino arguing with Nina, or even Kenley and Tim Gunn! Or Viktorya. Heck, every season there's been somebody bringing the crazy.

Best moment of the season, and one when I realized we'd shot way past crazyland and into an alternate universe: Last episode, when the losers left the runway, and Nina forgot her European cool, shook her head and said, "Wow."

Ivy Higa needs to go away right now. Somehow she's gotten selected by... I guess herself and Gretchen... as a possible winner. I do not think it's going to happen. She and Gretchen are going to make matching pink sweaters, rat their hair into beehives, and dump pig blood on Michael C.

Incidentally, I live in jeans and work in scrubs. I don't know fashion from a hole in the ground, and I didn't understand what was good about Michael C's garment until the judges explained to me what I was seeing....but once they talked about it, I could understand it at least. Not that I could ever wear it. (Or would.) DH bought us a hugh hi-def tv which annoyingly makes TV seem LESS real. Evidently I can no longer enter the fantasy, when TV looks too real.

*ahem* I have to say that so far, I'm slightly unimpressed with the formatting of Project Runway this year. I feel like they're doing EVERYTHING THEY POSSIBLY CAN to KEEP PEOPLE WATCHING. Seriously, I feel like it's soooo overdone it's ridiculous. I have always loved the show as it was, but now I feel like they're just milking everything they can to add DRAMA and INTRIGUE. It's offensive to my sensibilities... (keep in mind the only "reality" type shows I watch are PR and Iron Chef, if that counts...)

That disclaimer aside... UGH. Ivy is a talentless hack.. How many monochromatic outfits is she going to pump out? All of her outfits have white or khaki pants- did she try to squeeze in all those pants BEFORE Labor Day. AUGH!!! They're so boring and BLAH. Not only that, she's two-faced just like...

GRETCHEN. I can't stand her. Oh my goodness, I thought she was going to be cute and sweet like Leanne, but after two wins she turned into a horrible beast woman. Yikes.

*sigh* No one on the show currently is super awesome. I feel like most of them have HUGE personality issues, which are probably just spawned by Lifetime's attempt to be DRAMATIC.

I just hope Mondo wins. He thinks outside the box and keeps to his vision no matter what. Awkward geniuses FTW!!!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
