Wherein Annamaria crushes on a gay guy...again.

One of the pitfalls of being sick is that it encourages you to sit on the couch all day and watch television, since doing anything else requires a strength of body and mind that has been sapped by an infestation of evil little germs and an overabundance of NyQuil. Last night, curled up on the couch with a warm blanket and a humidifier, I found myself watching a marathon of Bravo’s Project Runway. I don’t know if it’s the drugs or the adorable Daniel V. (see above), but I watched nearly the entire second season (including one of those damnable reunion specials) in one sitting. They say that admitting you have a problem is the first step toward recovery; well, it’s official: I am a Project Runway addict. That show is like crack! One hit and you’re hooked. Thankfully, there is only one episode left of the season, after which I can start some kind of rapid detox and get back to life as normal…until season three.

Quick go to this website.
The article has links to several places that specialize in ridding you of this perverse addiction. (Of course it is replaced by a new one.)
From any of the sites click on the Brokeback links. I especially enjoyed Brokeback to the Future.

And I hope you're feeling better soon.

i totally understand. why? because i am obsessed with this show. a lot.

i've taped every episode, i watch it every wednesday and i don't go out at all (i really can't during the weekdays. i work during the mornings) but i'll be dammed if i miss runway.

in fact, i'm watching it right now. stop the madness.

feel better soon! lots of orange juice, broth soup, and antibiotics. they help a lot! :)

Wake--those Brokeback mash-ups are pretty hilarious. Unfortunately, my tendency to crush on gay men dates back at least high school, so I think there is no saving me. It also doesn't help that the intensity of the crush usually increases upon finding out that the man in question is gay--it's got to be some weird wanting what you can't have thing. Either that, or I just love the idea of a man who can actually dress himself.

Bethanne, I've been practically freebasing broth and green tea, so I'm slowly getting better. Stupid Michigan! You know, if the weather would just stay consistent, I wouldn't get so damn sick all of the time!

The thing about Project Runway is, the first time I heard the concept I thought, "Great, just what the world needs, another competition-based, kick someone off every week reality TV show." But then Daniel made that kickass dress out of foliage and I was hooked!
