@Roberta,
and prepare for another Food Truck race (have to check that name) starting up again soon on Food Network.

I too love seeing the food they prepare and wish I could wangle a judgeship some times the food looks so good. (lord knows I wouldn't have a hope of actually preparing those dishes).

And now back to Project Runway....

I miss Heidi's accent, it's faded.

@sozobe,
I would complain mightily about that to Lifetime. No reason for it other than they didn't think about it because they can all hear.

@Green Witch,
It's really, really standard. Hardly anything online is captioned. Various laws etc. in the pipeline but I'd have a hard time singling out Lifetime for that one.

@sozobe,
I had no idea, but not really surprised. Typical corporate tunnel thinking. However, I think it would worth an email to Lifetime. I'll see if I can find a source for someone who actually reads their email and might be able to give a response. It just niggles me.

"Sexy like Queen Victoria." Shocked Drunk thud

I'm not suggesting that designers have to be historians. But I am suggesting that if you intend to make something Victorian looking, you know to know what Victorian looks like.

I thought the challenge was goofy. Didn't much care for the idea.

I agreed with the winner, although the other top two could also have won.

I think that any of the six in the bottom three designs could have easily and justifiably been sent home.

Am I the only one who didn't dislike Bert's choice of fabric?

Glad you are enjoying Project Runway Roberta, my great nephew is the film editor. He has done an incredible job!

@Roberta,
Goofy is an understatement. Those stilt-worker models looked exactly like the alien skitters on Fallen Skies when they walked (tried to walk).

Yes, Nina is just a tad demaning.

I didn't see much day-to-evening in any of the designs.

I don't think I could have or would have picked a winner from any of the designs. And I certainly wouldn't have picked a metalic gold blouse as office wear.

I should have posted something last night. Less than a day has gone by, and I can't remember most of the designs.

I wasn't impressed.

So, Heidi had designers make two outfits for her line last season. This season, one--so far.

I did not like one design. Not one. Didn't like any of them even a little!

And there was a little more drama than I care for. Bitchiness. Nastiness. Childishness.

I don't know if I'm going to make it through the whole season.

Is anyone watching?

@Roberta,
I'm watching. I feel the same as you, Roberta. Waiting for something good. I think they made a mistake when they extended the show to 90 minutes. Now they have to fill in with more drama and trauma.

How did you weather Irene?

@Swimpy,
I agree, Swimpy. Too damned long. Too much drama. Who cares?

I know that many people are suffering from the effects of Irene. From my perspective on the upper east side of Manhattan, it was a lot of rain. Not much else.

@Roberta,
Glad to hear you didn't suffer from Irene. Now let's hope we don't have to suffer through the rest of PR Season 9.

I liked the winning outfit, but it didn't look avant garde to me.

I also liked the tree skirt, but that didn't look avant garde to me either.

Maybe I don't know what avant garde is. Am I spelling it right?

Poor what's his name gets cut twice. He shoulda left on the fur and the brooch.

I liked the idea for the challenge. Those kids were talented.

I finally caught up.
I really like Anya, but I don't think it's fair that one person should be so beautiful and so naturally talented. I thought Bert's axing was long overdue and Josh should be next. I was sorry none of the teams got the owl - that was a great looking bird.

@Green Witch,
I'm reaching of the point of fed up.

I don't understand why Anya won. There was a funny pouchy pointy belly to the skirt. And for something "wearable," a way to get it on and off would be nice.

I thought the guy with the feathery thing shoulda won. Too literal my ass. It was beautiful and reminiscent of the bird.

@Roberta,
Are you like me and think that this will be the last season I'll be watching? If it wasn't for my little friend, who loves the show, I think I would not have watched this season at all. I want Josh out this next round, though. Then Anya, Victor and Kimberly can fight it out.

Anyone planning to watch the All Stars compete? I think that starts November 3.

@Swimpy,
Swimpy, I'm barely making it through this season. Bored and disappointed.

Not sure I'll be watching the All Stars. Depends on who's on.

I stopped watching at the stilt-walkers challenge. I can't imagine being criticized over somehow wrongly designing for a stilt-walker LOL! Ridiculous.

I'd watch all-stars, depending on who comes back. Mondo was so gypped, IMO, by that creepy girl (Gretchen?) who won last season. He deserves some revenge-sewing lol.
