You Know You've Watched Too Much Project Runway When...

... you're reading the news, come across this headline:

Rice Admits U.S. Underestimated Hamas Strength, and think....

"What the h*ll has Santino done now?"


Thanks PhillyKat. Any more?

you get excited about seeing the Tresseme commercial that features Rebecca because she's wearing Daniel's clothes!!!

you realize the lemon chiffon pie reminds you of Andrae. (By the way, I have a lovely vintage Gucci scarf made of silk chiffon that now also reminds me of him).

you know your friends think you've watched too much Project Runway when you are at a meeting, and during a lull, you lean over to the PR junkie sitting next to you and you say, did you see Santino apolopgizing in the Post this morning? and from across the room somebody says, "well I can see this meeting is about to go to h*ll," and he doesn't even watch the show!

you know you've watched too much project runway when you start dropping notable lines (such as "after i lost the big promotion, i thought 'i can't believe this b**** did this!'") in normal conversation.

remind me not to eat while reading your blog. i nearly choked!

bethanne said...

got another one.

you know you've watched too much PR when the song "pencil skirt" by pulp comes on itunes, you automatically think "yeah, that was not a good idea. what was diana and marla THINKING????"

Katey said...

You know you watch too much Project Runway when...

... you motivate yourself to finish your homework by remembering Daniel V's reassuring speech to Nick and tell yourself to "be your own Daniel V."

... you make yourself a shirt that says "Where the h*ll is my chiffon?"

Laura K said...

You find yourself really really wanting a dress form.

Huda said...

When you realize from their blank faces that you have a priority your friends don't share or even understand, no matter how earnestly you try to describe the multidimensional tragedy of Nick losing Tarah.

Jon said...

You know you've watched too much Project Runway when you start thinking about how to you are going to justify your outfit Nina Garcia on your way to work/school.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

when...

your husband thinks you need "help" for spending too much time at Blogging Project Runway.

Peachpie said...

You know you have watched too much Project Runway when...

You look at your non PR watching co worker on the way to the elevator and state," It's a mother$^&* walk off".

hellparadiso said...

When you and your husband are SO going to learn how to sew clothes so you can take all your great ideas and get on the show! (My husband is serious about this...but he's a fantastic designer!)

And...

You spend at least two hours after every episode sketching and discussing how Santino's outfit could have been saved had we gotten to take a crack at it.

Tbone said...

...you've renamed your dog Heidi

...you have a big clock that counts down to the start of the next episode

...all of your conversations with your family are done in Timpressions ("Darling, the meatloaf this evening is simply stunning")

...you've started monitoring certain NYC webcams to see if you can catch a glimpse of one of the designers

This is not to say I have been, er, doing any of the above :)

Rachel said...

When your grade-school-aged little brother starts doing his "Andrae" face at random intervals throughout the day (to execute an Andrae face: open eyes very, very wide, open mouth very, very wide, jerk your head from left to right.)
And when you tell him that something isn't working, and he tells you to "make it work".

Oh, and Laura K., I totally told my parents that I want a dress form for my birthday this year.

Irene Done said...

When you refer to all lost causes as "defending the shoe."

travis said...

...when the "good" side of your inner voice begins to sound like Tim Gunn, and the "bad" side sounds like Santino doing a Timpression

...you stop wearing your favorite clothing to work for fear that you'll have to use the "clothes off your back" to get "all dolled up" for "team lingerie" night and a romp through the local "social scene" followed by some "window shopping" "on the ice" for some "inspiration" hmmm...

...you buy a "full dan fan" van to drive around and pick-up your friends each week for a PR2 viewing party. oh, ya...and your dressed in your "fav" figure skating outfit

AufInMN said...

Peachpie-
I did that yesterday!!!

AJ said...

LMAO these are great!

...when you start to get songs stuck in your head about "Emmett on the serger."

...when you can have an entire conversation with a fellow PR fan, solely in Timpressions.

...when you see if you can pull off an "Andrae face" in the mirror. (no joke, I did this earlier)

...when the song "Rock the Casbah" fondly reminds you of Tim Gunn.

...when you start to believe that all unattractive things strangely remind you of a baboon's a**.

ps- how much is a dress form, expensive, no? I need to get my flipping sewing machine back first though...

AB said...

...when you see a random feather on the ground and your first reaction is to look around for Santino.

...Affirm to one and all that "tootie" no longer refers to Kim Fields.

...you start referring to colors as "Chloe Blue"

Ette said...

... You want to be the first in line to buy the new Barbie.

scott said...

... your grandmother hustles down the hall in only a turtleneck and your mother turns to you saying, "i think that was entirely too much tootie!"

Anonymous said...

Laura K, i so want a dress form too. My friend actually has one, she bought it off ebay.

abs...the santion-feather thing cracked me up. so bad.


everyone knows i have watched too much project runway when I can tell them what is in the background from almost every scene in the episode. i watch every re-air of each episode. also, everyone knows i am hooked on project runway when I listen to Tim's podcast 18 times within 12 hours of it being put on iTunes. For the first hour after it is put on, i have it on a continuous loop on my iPod.

this one just came to me in a cellphone conversation.

you know you watch PR too much, when someone uses the word 'overdone' and you automatically think of Santino.

Kristin said...

You know you have watched too much Project Runway when...

Your teacher starts to tell you about a "project" but you miss the rest of the explanation thinking of who will be out this week

AJ said...

You know you watch too much Project Runway when, to shoo your dog off your bed, you tell her to "Move your tootie."

This actually happened this morning...no lie.

I proceeded to giggle to myself and think fondly of Emmett.

Thank you Anne Slowey!

You know you've watched too much PR when you re-play Santino's Timbot routine, laughing and wishing you were there, and then try to explain why it's funny to your husband (and get no where), then in desperation explain to your five yr old daughter, who is normally spellbound by your every word, but this time leaves the room!
