I'm so proud of him.. going back to school after more than 20 years!! He sometimes has doubts on how well he's done / doing, but his standards are - sometimes - well, inappropriately high. ( is that diplomatic enough?)
So Honey, I’m proud of you.
Meanwhile , I'm in my normal pre-show frenzy. This weekend we have Artapalooza, in Cedar Falls, IA and it's one of my favorite shows every year. It's well run, well patronized, right by 2nd hand shops and has 2 decent bakeries within walking. Everyone, from the show organizers to all the customers, are just so darn excited and friendly and genuinely happy to see us!
I don't want to disappoint these people! So I'm working hard on getting as many new pieces done -- good pieces!! -- as I can in the limited time I have. The only bad thing about this show is it's so late in my season, so I feel like I don't have any "good" stuff left to share with them.
hm. maybe high standards runs in the family?

I'm a huge fan of Project Runway. Huge.
I've not watched it for about 3 years, because we dropped Direct TV to cut household costs down. So for the last 3ish years, we have had DVDs , 1 tv with an digital rabbit ears and Netflix, when the wifi worked well enough in the house to use it. (Don't get me started on the wifi)
For the most part not having cable/satellite hasn't been all that bad. I miss just turning the TV on and catching odd and kewl stuff more or less randomly. I really just use it for back ground noise while I do chores or work on jewelry design. I just like having something on, I just think better that way.
And I missed 4 specific shows - Walking Dead, Colbert, Jon Stewart and Project Runway.
Now almost 3 years later, we are getting satellite back! Due to needing a new dish, it got bumped from this weekend to next weekend.
I just couldn't wait -- so I've been watching Season 14 of Runway to catch up, and I bought seasons 1-5 of Walking Dead so I'm all ready to go when it starts up again.
Colbert and Stewart are sadly no more. I'm going to try out the new host for the Daily news, and Maybe I'll catch Colbert in his new gig.... but I'm gonna enjoy the hell out of catching up Dead and Runway!
