One ding…

We outliers of the world who get you–who love you–will miss you more than Geoff misses his penis.

See you on the other side!

Who are you wearing?

I’ve watched pretty much every season of Project Runway — including the current season of Project Runway All Stars — and there is one area of fashion that the show rarely addresses:

The designers’ personal clothing.

The designers famously arrive at their digs in New York (or Los Angeles) pulling a single wheelie bag.  Then they proceed to drape themselves in all manner of crazy outfit week after week.

Me thinks they are getting some help from the costume department…and the highly advertised QVC accessory wall.

That’s a conversation I’d like to see addressed during the post-season round-up, between play-by-play of all the infighting, of course.

If you dropped someone from the pre-Internet era onto this train — let’s say Don Draper from Mad Men just for the fun of it….

The new phone book’s here!

During a class meeting today, I had reason to utter the words –

“I’m somebody!”

…which brought to mind the iconic scene from The Jerk starring Steve Martin.

When I mentioned the movie to my class, they stared at me unknowingly.  One student, trying to be helpful, said, “I’ve heard of Steve Martin.

That’s awesome.

So, for their education — and everyone’s viewing pleasure — I include the aforementioned clip here.

I hope you are inspired to watch The Jerk…

And learn your special purpose.

Green

It’s hard to admit, but not all eggs are sticky.

In fact, some of the first ones I encountered as a child were green. And I got to see them up close and up sized today at Universal Studios.

If you didn’t get the reference, it’s from Dr. Seuss’ amazing Green Eggs and Ham.

Even if you did get the reference, it might be surprising to discover that it is a food stand.
