Remember my glory days of blogging?  hee hee, I don’t know how you will react to that but it amuses me.    It amuses me because I realize I haven’t been blogging ‘over here’ very much and the topics I’ve posted on lately have frustrated me (movies and my lack of whatever (motivation!?) to go see any) AND – warning:  run on sentence in the midst of, we are – I’m drinking wine.

Red* wine.  markwest

fetzer Do you recall RWBI?    Well, back in the day, May of last year, I was yapping about the nights my hub was out of town and American Idol was on.   And I was enjoying a glass or five of red wine.     Click here to read the first of that glorious series.

Where was I?

Oh yea.   THE OSCARS ARE ON, my PEOPLE!    Maybe by the time you read this, they’ll be over, but I’m blogging at my breakfast nook table on my new Mac laptop watching the red carpet nonsense waiting for HUGH Jackman to start the festivities.   

Yea, I know!   Why am I not in my home theatre watching the glamour?!?!


Well, the hub is home.    He wants to watch ‘something else.’    I guess racin’ is on… 

What the __?!  what a good wife I am.    He KNOWS I love the Oscars!    He is being mean.   

I’m thinking about calling the sub coordinator and telling her I can’t work tomorrow.    Subbing is awesome, like that!   If I don’t want to work tomorrow, I don’t have to.

I did see Slumdog Millionaire.   (ROMI!  I saw it!   Yes, I agree!!   Great GREAT movie.)  

Movies I Actually Saw That Might Win Gold Statues Tonight:    Slumdog Millionaire, Wall-E.      

I think that’s it.

So pathetic.     I think I’ll have some more wine…

* Red wine is safer than white wine.   Although it can keep me awake (sulfites, they say), it doesn’t wipe my short term memory like white wine does…

** and if you’ve read this far, just want to share that we made an offer on a boat.     It was about 75% of suggested retail price, so we are waiting for a counter or a reject…

***   Hey JL!    Did you sign up?!??!    hope so!

****  OHHHHHH so cute!   They just interviewed those adorable child actors from Slumdog and they are PRECIOUS!   so cute.  I hope they are having a great time in America – what a wild ride this must be.   TDC!   Too Damn Cute.


Project Runway Almost Final (Episode 11)

February 14, 2008

 [for the record, Hub called me as soon as he found the love note in his lunch box.]

So, without further ado, I write up random thoughts on the Almost Last Episode of Project Runway:  “The (sort of) Selection of the Final Three Designers”.   With 5 remaining and 2 supposedly about to get the auf, we field trip one last time to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.     (For a long time, I thought the word ‘metropolitan’ only referred to ice cream.   Then, using Latin pieces and parts, I figured it out.     

The inspiration for the last 5 designers was ART.      {Know what they call a guy with no arms and no legs hanging on a wall?  Art.}     Of course, SHOCKER! Rami was inspired by the Grecian statues; the draping, OH GOD, YES!  the draping…   I did love his purple color but did NOT like the dress.    It didn’t move;  I thought she was flashing to the camera with every step.   

Did it seem to you like the models weren’t ‘ON’ for this challenge?    I don’t think they were too excited about their outfits.       And I miss Amanda – I loved her profile!  What a great nose she sported.

Sweet P chose to allude to a peacock.   In color only, not too much drama.   She was given compliments to her ability to design and construct dresses that are ‘wearable’ which isn’t the aim of this competition.   Nor, I understand, is it the aim of ‘FASHION.’      She was our Goodbye Girl this week.   She was still able to have a show at Bryant Park;   I assume that is to throw off the spoilers who are trying to figure out ‘who is showing at Bryant Park?!’ before this episode aired.

Christian is the winner!   He does have talent and I expect he will win.   He only received praise and more praise.    He is self-confident and unwavering.    I wish him well.

Jillian also had a great design and was happily sent off with Christian to celebrate Soon-Bryant-Park-Joy.     Her design was well-crafted, had little in common with the painting she chose as her inspiration, and she suffers from too big a bite in no time to finish but usually pulls it off.   Heidi had great compliments for her being this small quiet meek lady with a big punch!   Called her ‘ballsy’, I do believe.

Then what to do with Chris and Rami?    Make them do a collection but then review and pick one right before the final show.    Ugh.   I’m not sure I would have been pleased with that.     As a viewer and fan?  OK – whatever.   More suspense, more drama.

In fact, I bet Sweet P has a lot less stress and I hope she had fun with what she got to do!

So, as you can tell, I’m assuming if you read this that you either saw the episode or will hunt it down.   Go to Blogging Project Runway to get EVERYTHING…   They do a fab job of keeping us fans in the know and they deserve applause.     In fact, I heartily recommend MTV’s Jim Cantiello’s 60-second Recap.    You’ll find it on the link I just gave you…

So, off to shock the hot tub where I just might get some hot hot tub foreplay/luscious nookie/sex/whatever tonight if I don’t drink too much red wine.    I did a silly thing and bought a box boxwine.jpg instead of a regular size bottle. botwine.jpg  Could mean trouble.   Or should I take the time to post that photo someone requested for me in the new hideous awesome orange plaid pants capris?   

Yea, OK,  then here it is:




 I told you a little snug still…
