Foiled! And, Project Runway discussion!

Karma bit me in the ass when I suggested to Vera (work friend) that I might call in sick to work soon so I could get some Christmas shopping done. Well, guess whose teeth started hurting yesterday? Clogging ears? Runny nose? General feeling of poopiness? Check. Check. Check. DAMNIT CHECK.
Thankfully, Mr. Squirrel offered to drive Jojo to daycare so I wouldn’t have to spend an hour driving there and back. In my single days, when I took time off work for illness, I’d either go out for pancakes or rent movies and eat Junior Mints. Now that I’m not a mom, if I do get to recover without having to watch Jojo, then I usually end up NOT taking care of myself and instead getting stuff done around the house. I really should be sleeping and not watching Four Weddings and a Funeral. Or wrapping gifts. Or looking online for more perfect gifts.
Ok, I’m going to bed by 1pm. But first…
PROJECT RUNWAY. Who’s in (the discussion with me)? As you may remember, I’m in LOVE with this show. One of my favorite show-related pasttimes includes creating a Project Runway spreadsheet where I list the designers and score them according to the challenge outcomes. I started this last season, which proved my system made little difference, since asshat Jeffrey won. But if I had the time to rewatch Season 2, I think my spreadsheet would have clearly shown why (the ridiculously talented but not camera-hoggy) Chloe won.
So far this season, three challenges have highlighted and frustrated the designers. While it’s very earlyl to make predictions, according to my calculations, the top 3 designers so far are:
I also really like Kit and look forward to seeing more of her work.
The only designer who I feel should step it up big time next week or risk being sent packing is Ricky.
And finally, I’m saving the BEST for last! It’s one of my favorite blogger’s birthdays: Lisa at Midwestern Mommy! I’ve read Lisa’s blog for quite a while and enjoy her writing, perspective and sense of humor. I also had the wonderful pleasure of meeting this gorgeous lady at BlogHer this summer! She’s a peach and sounds a bit under the weather (I hear ya, dear friend), so go on over, wish her the GREATEST birthday & a quick end to her nasty cold bug!
