    Tippy Top

    What’s Jack up to? Oh Jack. When will you stop hopping all over everyone that comes to our door? Soon we won’t have any friends at all if you don’t simmer down now.

    I’m having a hard time coming down from my post election high. I doubt I will anytime soon or even want to thank you very much. I also have no idea how I’ll ween myself off of msnbc. I’m totally stuck on Rachel Maddow now and I don’t think I’ll be giving her up or all my political talk because something awfully funny happened on the way down the road from Wasilla and who knows what will happen on the road back. I’m just saying.

    Thank goodness I’ve got Top Chef Coming up next week. Order shall be restored to the land!

    It was strange, I was almost surprised to be back to America’s Next Top Model and whining Marjorie. Hmm.. but alas I’m back. Welcome home, me. For the life of me I could not figure out who got booted last week since I missed the show. These girls are just not that memorable this season. I thought long and hard and it dawned on me… Sheena! Bummer. The last model I may have had an interest in.

    Oh well, that said after grueling go sees and a tough photo shoot with Ms. T herself, ousted this week … spoiler ALERT… as if the pic didn’t tell you was… Elina. Buh-bye 18 year old control freak. Man, I was as surprised as Tyra at that little revelation. Let your hair down girl. Life is way too short.

    Now onto Top Design. Spoiler Alert…

    Congrats to Nathan the surprise winner of Top Design. I would have thought that Preston had it hands down. But I’m happy it was Nathan and the judges picked a designer that steps out of the box.

    I need some serious sleep.

    Project- Licous

    What’s Jack up to? Lately Jack has taken to taking me for walks just for the fun of it. I think he’s trying to get me to exercise more. Can’t really fault him for that, can I? Good dog.
    America’s Next Top Model is on and thanks to a friend I’m watching. I almost forgot. So much reality and too much stress in my life to watch.
    Top model is top crazy with a bunch of silly girls let lose for the first time in the big city with a way too hot hot tub. It’s bound to spell hormones and trouble. Poor Hannah let her ignorance show by pushing Isis then is ambushed. Sheena’s hooch kept coming out and Clark’s closet lesbianism leaked a bit too. All’s fair in Tyra’s world. Now can we please get to the show?
    Bring on Bennie Ninja I want a pose off! Hey he’s wearing a jaunty hat. The girls are modeling accessories. Poor Nikeysha. She is a hot mess. Sheena places the bag right in the wrong spot, between her legs. Yowza! Elina win the challenge.
    Elimination challenge this week is a photo shoot from a ladder hanging from a hot air balloon. Uh-oh. But that have to fake it due to high winds and fear of law suits.
    The first models come out and are bringing it. Then the girls start to fall flat. Really flat.
    Quick wrap up- Nekeysha is out this week. You just knew it was coming. The poor girl was in way over her head.

    It’s in the stars on Project Runway it starts and out comes the ousted designers and they are teamed with the in designers and told to go crazy with their signs.
    Keith and Terri- Leo
    Blayne and Stella- Libra – Holla at ya boy.
    Leanne and Emily- Scorpio
    Kenley and Wesley- Aquarius
    Suede and Jerry- Libra
    Joe and Daniel choose Aries
    Korto and Kelli- Aquarius
    Jerell and Stella- Sagittarius School marm.
    Keith and Terri and are volatile mix and Keith is feeling fragile. Awww. Kenley is in love with herself and her design and annoying everyone. She disses Tim a sure kiss of death.
    The next day the designers are greeted with a note that says be ready to party with the looks early and oh, 2 designers will be eliminated. Ouch. HAMMER TIME!

    Then Grim Tim comes in with news that they have 1 hour to get party ready and there will no longer be immunity for any of the challenges. Thanks Tim!
    The designers with their pinned together designs head to the Planetarium for a party and meet the PR all stars including: Carmen, Daniel V, Jay and Christian who will be judging their designs up close and personal.
    Then after the party they head back and get to work on the garments a bit more before the next day’s runway show.
    Terri and Keith are still not working well and Keith takes a nap. Nice. Tim even has to wake him for the show.

    Hey Nina’s back. Sunshine has entered the building. Here we go…
    Blayne – No. what is that?

    Kenley- ok but nothing to do with Aquarius

    Terri- Just ok I don’t like the fabric.

    Korto- Yes. Nice

    Joe- Ok

    Jerell- Yes. Very good.
    Leanne- yes.

    Suede- No
    Ha! Is Suede actually talking in 3rd person on the runway? Yes, he is. Thanks Suede you are so nutty.
    Now to the judging. The winner this week is: Jerell! Good for him. Tough sign and he did well with it. I’m glad to see him get a win with his catty self.

    Out this week is – Blayne. Buh-bye ‘licous’! So sad. Holla.

    And Terri- I think it was time for her to go. Things were getting tired.

    No time to blog about it but for a fun change of pace check out Top Design. Interesting characters and great designs ideas plus perky Todd Oldham. I like this show. And it’s Bravo, you can always catch it on some off time. This week the designers decorated bunkers and made them so chic. If the designers could do that, surely I could do something with my space. A fun and inspirational show. Totally makes you want to buy a can of paint and get to work. This was a grey bunker at the start of the show.
