Beware of the caged animal in the cute Nine West boots

Holy guacamole, I've been busy. Which I know everyone says. Except I really was. Especially at work. Like I didn't meet with enough people last week, I've been trapped like a caged animal in meetings again all this week. Yesterday, while trapped in the same conference room for no less than six hours I had to restrain myself from giving people the hurry up hand signal while they were rambling. It's called concise, people. Look into it.

The whole world needs to take three steps back and stay out of my way today. I went to bed at 9pm last night and woke up at 5 am feeling capable of scaling a tall building in a single bound while wearing cute Nine West boots I haven't felt sassy enough to wear in months. I even walked on the treadmill before I got the kids up. And then I used some sort of Svengali-esque mind control to get the aforementioned kids up and out the door in 15 minutes. I'm either operating on all cylinders or just feeling lucky. I don't really care which. Whatever gets the job done.

Despite being much too busy to handle things like blogging, dirty dishes, or stacks of laundry, I did find time to watch Project Runway. Priorities, baby. It's important to maintain them even when you're busy.

Ricky remains king of the criers. I thought his dress was nice but apparently I'm not high fashion enough to understand why it won. I'm also not high fashion enough to understand why he makes hats out of denim. Hopefully his denim hats are more attractive than the stupid mesh baseball cap he's so committed to wearing every week. It never ceases to amaze me when designers that can create such beautiful clothes dress like complete slobs all the time. Not like I don't dress like a slob 99% of the time. But then no one pays me to design pretty clothes for a living so there.

Christian is still my new best friend. Although he's been my new best friend for awhile now so maybe I should stop using the word "new" to refer to our relationship. Henceforth, he shall be known as just my best friend. And he's a total lock for the final 3 or I'll be a monkey's uncle. Because he's very talented and deserves final 3.

On the other hand, I will eat my shoe if Chris makes it to the final 3 because there's no way he deserves it. Especially since he was already eliminated once. I hadn't thought Sweet P had final 3 potential until recently but she's really coming on strong. She turned that hideous patchwork thing she started with into a thing of beauty. And Jillian needs to stop whining. So does my best friend Christian but he's my best friend so let's get off his back. To make it up to me he can bring me candy next time he comes over to paint my toe nails.

And, finally, I feel obligated to confess that I also watched part of The Rock of Love 2. Ok. Technically, I've set the DVR to record the series now. But it's not my fault this time. It's the writer's strike. There's nothing else on. What do you want from me? I've been reading a lot more too. But sometimes a girl gets tired and just wants to lay in bed with the remote in her hand. It doesn't make her a bad person. And everything else is repeats. And I can only watch Sex and the City repeats so many times before I know what's going to happen before it happens and feel my brain turning to mush. And if I'm going to turn my brain to mush anyway, what does it hurt?

My husband watched it too. So I guess if I'm going to hell for watching it at least I won't be alone. And my husband would also like everyone to know that if our daughter went on that show we would be the parents on the 10 o'clock news getting arrested for kidnapping their kid and driving her across state lines tied up in the back seat. And we're only kind of joking.

HAHA! Speaking of trash TV like Rock of Love 2 (which shamefully I also admit to having watched), did you catch that show The Moment of Truth!??! OMG it was almost painful to watch! This former football player turned personal trainer was in the hot seat and had his disgustingly beautiful (like prettiest woman I'd ever seen) wife there with him 'for support'. And one of the questions they asked him was "Is the reason you have put off having children with Catia (wife) because you do not truely believe she is your life partner". And he answered YES!!!!! And the lie detector confirmed it was TRUE!!!!

I. wanted. to. die.

The camera cut to his wife, obviously shocked, mortified, pi$$ed and utterly taken-back and I found myself sitting on my couch squirming. I literally felt uncomfortable watching it all go down but it was like a car accident - i couldnt look away!! They continued to ask other questions that made him look like a total a$$ - and all i could think was...if i were her i'd be plotting where to hide the body...and man i cant wait for next weeks episode!!!!

It's amazing what people will do for money. I seriously suggest watching at least 1 episode.

LOL I've never seen the show, but I feel like I can participate in any conversation about it now.
Found you through the Blog365 Mega Feed.
Happy Posting

I have been wanting to watch SATC DVDs for a while now. Every once in a while I get the urge.

I'll give you the fact that Christian is pretty creative, but he really annoys me. "De construct what are we in 1st grade." Well this season they all annoy me, but I'm pulling for Sweet P just because she's so kooky. And Rock of Love, I have to tune in just to see how far these "ladies" will demean themselves. The shock that someone didn't want to kiss him after all the nastiness.

You know what I love about the blogosphere? That I've found other people who watch Rock of Love 2. Although I still liked A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila better. But, clearly I'm not picky.

I feel much better about my Project Runway addiction. You are so right about Jillian. Ricky gets on my nerves too.

jessica - I totally meant to watch that show! Not even kidding. I really did. I'm just bad at remembering when stuff is on. I'm going to have to add it to my DVR recordings so I can see it. I can't believe that guy admitted that about not wanting to have kids on national television. If I was his wife I'd want a divorce after that.

frances - I'd say you should check it out for yourself but I think I'd feel guilty corrupting someone else's mind with that trash. Although, I can't seem to make myself stop watching. It's just insane. And Bret's eyeliner has me mesmerized.

virginia - Oh, I definitely get the same urge. I have several seasons on DVD.

robyn - I can see how Christian can annoy people. I really can. Last week even I thought he was getting whiny. Sweet P has grown on me alot. Her designs the last couple weeks have been really good too.

jerseygirl - The internet is awesome. Even though I think Jillian is a touch annoying recently, I think she's more talented that Ricky. So Ricky and Chris both need to go before her. My final 3 picks are Christian, Sweet P and Rami. I think. We'll see. Long live Project Runway!

I've been telling my husband for weeks that Christian was my new gay boyfriend. lol I have lots of those, but he's my new favorite. I haven't been desperate enough to watch Rock of Love, but I HAVE been watching Scott Baio is 46 and Having a Baby. (yikes!) HE is the whiniest cry-boy I have seen in a looong time...but there I am, glued to the tv week after week like he's the greatest thing since tampons! This writers strike seriously needs to end! *sigh*

agirlinprogress said...

Or he's 46 and pregnant? I don't know. lol It's one of those names!

a happier girl said...

Yes! I totally watched the Scott Baio show last week! Even my husband thought he was annoying. I couldn't figure out if he was just a jerk or didn't realize how he comes across or what. Does he just need money so he doesn't care that watching it makes me not like him anymore? Someone please end the writer's strike!
