teevee. I wouldn't have guessed watching people scramble
to create garments for high fashion would be entertaining.
my fashion sense has two flavors

does it work for work
does it work on a bike

Hahahaha. I like Nina--she's so mean. Sooooo entertaining.

Oh, and nice clothes too. Yay, Runway.

Leanne Marshall won again. She has mad skills
with highly technical complicated pieces.

yeah, it's a pretty good show. There aren't too many out there where the winners are judged on their skills and creativity.

I have a nice crush on leanne right now. Plus, she's from portland and she looks pretty 'hip'. Not to generalize, but do you think she rides a bike?

We should e-mail her and ask. I bet she does, otherwise she has no sustainability
cred with me. She is pretty attractive, but mostly I am impressed with her skills. Some
of the other designers are like putting together stuff that looks like a junior high
project while she pulls off complicated stuff pretty regularly.

i usually tune into the history and discovery channels, so some times I need something mindless and something like PR does just the trick.

My wife loves it, so I've got hooked too. Not like there are many new shows on in the summer anyway.

I love how fair and honest the judges always are. If it sucks, they say so, but if it's good, they give them plenty of praise. Seems logical, but it's rare to see that on tv.

The ex used to be really into it, but I haven't see it since the late unpleasantness.

I'm fairly certain that Tim Gunn starts every show with a highball or two before the cameras start rolling and I can get behind that. I suspect that he is a master of the three martini lunch as well.

More hosts need to do their work with a slight buzz going.

don't watch it, but do agree, that if you're going to watch a reality show (these days) it's refreshing to watch one with people who possess talent.

I think we lost the remote, and Tabatha's Salon Makeover came on after Project runway one night.

That show is just funny! These people have NO idea how to run a business, and it's great watching the ***** chew them out (and have the credentials to back it up). I think business students should be required to watch a couple episodes of this.
