It's been a while since you've been so progressive

Mood: colloquial

I'm alive, I swear. It seems I've been starting a lot of entries like this lately.

I'm currently at the tail-end of my work night, which is good, because I'm tired and bored. Bid night was last night (er, Friday night), so everyone's off getting shitfaced and coming in at obscene hours of the morning. Fortunately, nobody was too obnoxious, so I didn't have to call in the big guns.

Friday night was Caitlin's party. It was pretty awesome. I've missed hanging out with everyone... sigh. We played a few card games, made peanut butter pancakes, drank some wine (my first alcohol in about four months - geez, I'm such a teetotaler), watched some Project Runway, played Twister... good times. I'll upload pictures to Facebook and/or Flickr sometime soon.

I'm in a fairly good mood now because I (finally!) finished my Russian and Stats homework. Stats took forever, mainly because I started off using the wrong equation and became royally confused. Russian took forever because it was a lot of work. I also came up with topics for my Russian research paper (basically just a paper about one of the native peoples of Russia) and my Public Speaking Informative speech (endangered/extinct language revitalization). Holy fuck. How nerdy am I?

So, is anybody else out there into Project Runway? The final six just showed at Bryant Park and I'm feeling kind of obsessive. Leanne FTW!

It's been raining like a motherfucker lately - like, just about every day for the last two weeks or so. I'm feeling very waterlogged. My stats book hasn't been dry since the first week of the semester. Also, I think my backpack has sprung a leak. Hopefully the sun will come out... tomorrow. And suddenly I have the urge to join a band of singing orphans... hmm.

I've been keeping up with it via YouTube... some very nice people out there upload the episodes within hours of its first showing, so I load them while I'm on campus and watch them at home.

Who's your favorite designer this season?

You might regret getting me started on this. None of my friends watch this show and I don't get to go on Project Runway rants very often. :)

I tend to judge people on their personalities more than their work, so with that in mind I think Leanne is my favorite of the remaining designers. I'd probably have to go with Korto based on the outfits. My favorite out of everyone was probably Stella. I started out hating her. She made some pretty hideous things (I actually thought she would go on the first episode for her trash bag dress), but she grew on me as time went on. I appreciate it when people let the drama roll off.

Terri's drag queen dress was my favoritest outfit of the season. Awesome. Too bad she was a jerk.

I do not like Kenley at all. She'll probably win.

Ok I'm done. I guess the boys aren't making much of an impression on me this season...

Haha, I have the same issue (although my mother watches, so I can talk about it with her.

I do the same thing re: judging them by their personalities, although I also judge them based on their designs. Leanne's personality is great (she reminds me of a talented, female me, actually) and her design aesthetic is amazing. I truly believe that she could have won every challenge for which she's ever been in the top three. Stella's personality grew on me (I hated her the first episode), as did Blayne - they seemed like they were having fun, which is important to me. As Santino (season 2) says, "Lighten up, it's only fashion!"

My favorite design was probably Leanne's photo-inspired design. Or her car design. Or her avant garde design. Or... well, okay, I kind of have a crush on her, can you tell? haha

Based on the final collections, Kenley will sooooo not win. (If you don't know about it already, check out http://projectrungay.blogspot.com - great info, and they uploaded pictures from the final runway show at Bryant Park). But yeah, none of the guys this season were even remotely good. Talented, yeah, but good, no.
