    S17.E02: The Future Is Here

    Ugh, not Nick. I'm in the minority but I never liked him. Poor Chris March has medical problems and I think is still in a very fragile state. I adore Laura, she'd probably be great. I'd like to see Amy from a few seasons ago, she's a teacher, I think at FIDM, and had a nice way about her but I think she'd be kind but firm. But I agree that Christian is aces! Oh, I think Tim would enjoy a dry martini, with two olives.

    I got nothing but love for you, @SailorGirl! Meet me on the "I Love Tim Gunn" couch, we can kick off our shoes and have a refreshing cocktail. Vodka and tonic? I'm buying. Its been a hell of a week!

    Taking the wheel didn't make her bossy, but the way she approached it was less than tactful. She came off as something of a know it all, and was somewhat sharp and peremptory in manner. That's why I used the word bossy. She didn't show much diplomacy, which is also a desirable leadership quality. She did know what she was talking about and she led her team to victory. She acknowledged her teammates in a very kind and lovely way. She was absolutely correct in telling Sebastian that his dress was a map to his model's vagina. He acknowledged it too. I guess I'm not sure what about my use of the word bossy is bothersome? She did take the wheel, though she was less than gracious at first, ruffling some feathers. I like her and think she did a good job. She was right about Sebastian's dress, and the fabric choice. Several of her fellow designers snarked on her for having gaps in her sewing ability, but I saw it as recognizing her weaknesses and using the fact that they were a team to her advantage. But if Sebastian hadn't shut her down on the second day and told her straight up that he would not have time to help her with her outfit because he had to work on his own, she would have blithely continued to call upon him to help her. And she took that mild rebuke very well. Tess interests me. I think she's one to watch. I agree. Not everyone is going to respond in the same way. Though I do think that Kovid needs to adopt some strategies to protect himself. He's so sweet and tender and emotional. If he keeps putting everything out there all the time, he'll exhaust himself. I want to sit him down and give him a cup of tea. Agreed. Some people are wonderful at what they do but fall apart in the pressure cooker of competition. We've seen it time and time again. The fabulous chef who gets pipped at the post on Top Chef, or the dedicated home baker who's been making cakes for her family for 50 years getting booted on the Great British Baking Show. I liked Frankie and wish her the best, but in a way I'm glad she's gone because watching her fail is too painful.

    Yes, I agree! "who on your team should go home?" is just such a cheap shot. Judging by what we've seen so far, we have a lot of strong personalities here, so any drama that arises will do so organically. No need to stir the pot. Tessa was a tad bossy but someone had to take the wheel. She dialed it back quite a bit by day two, backed off when Sebastian told her he would not be able to help her on the second day, and acknowledged and praised him when it counted. I like her. She's a bit severe and unbending, but she has good instincts and knows her strengths and weaknesses. Her argument for the wool fabric was sound. Sequins?? Yikes. And when she told Sebastian that his dress looked like it was drawing attention to the model's vagina, well, that's exactly what I was yelling at the TV from among my pillows. And I thought her top was really cute. It made me smile. I was aghast at Hester's behavior, she just bulldozed everyone. I don't blame Nadine for being brusque. After listening to Hester's nattering and watching her flit from one bad decision to another, all of them affecting my work, I'd be ready to cut a bitch too. I'm most interested in seeing more from Sonia and Afa. They both seem highly skilled and seem to be nice people. Christian is giving me life right now. I love how practical he is, with his reminders about colors and fabrics. He's not Tim, so no avuncular "talk to me" from him! He's dishing out tough love. I love Kovid still. He's such a dear. And he's his own worst enemy. Honey, snap out of it!

    Hahahahahaha, I just came over here to say they all probably need to do that cockamamie diet of Ashley's and align their pH.

    I hear this over and over from plygs--that its always the wife's idea, and her prerogative to accept or reject a new sister wife. I think its likely a combination of gaslighting and Stockholm syndrome.

    That was a whole lot of ugly. At one point I'm sure I was covering my face and screaming "my eyes! MY EYES!". Jesus. Evan's was the best except for that godawful print, which looked like Big Bird threw up. It was surpassed in ugliness only by Michelle's. Gawd. Sale rack at Dress Barn for Grandma. Dmitry, seriously? Dusty rose? The color otherwise know as Certain Death on Project Runway? Dmitry's cocky, though. He knows he's the chosen one. He can even get away with that color, which has slain countless other designers. Guys, I can't. Watching the new PR makes this outing even more lame. I don't care who wins. I just want it to be over, like a long commute or a work meeting.

    Don't forget to top it off with a couple of peanut butter sandwiches, and maybe an orange. Or some grapes.

    Oh, wait, I think I blacked out for a minute--how does he feel about his impending surgery? Is he nervous? Is he afraid he "won't wake up"? I need to know!
