No one ever said it would be this hard.

So what was it that vexed me enough this morning to actually drag myself out of bed? Not my alarm clock. Not my cat. No, it was the obnoxious sound of Hilary Clinton's voice on my television. I'm really disappointed about how everything turned out yesterday and for the first time since Super Tuesday I'm kind of nervous. I do not want to see Hillary as our candidate in November. I'll probably still vote for her, but begrudgingly so. Fucking Ohio. Seriously, that state should not be allowed to vote.

And could Jillian's collection have been any uglier? And less cohesive? And I was really disappointed in Rami's collection... I thought it was really boring. I don't think he should've dialed it down a notch. I definitely liked Christian's the best but I thought even he could've done better. That last dress was so fierce! I totally thought he wasn't going to win though based on what all the judges were saying. They seemed to have more negative comments about him than anyone else. But yays!!

Jesse Spano has a dancing reality show?? "I'm so excited..." Also, I love the Levis commercial with the guy in the phonebooth instead of the girl. Why did someone make the movie 10,000BC? There is no way it will be better than Clan of the Cave Bear.

All I have to say about ANTM: COULD AMIS' HAIR POSSIBLY BE ANY UGLIER?! It looks like a cheap wig! I think all the other girls look a lot better now for the most part.

I wanted to post about something less superficial than television but I don't think I have the energy. I never have the energy. I feel like I'm slowly fading away. I... don't do anything anymore. The hours tick by and I don't know where they go. I feel like I'm waiting for something to happen or something to change, though I don't know what will. Like I just need some sort of ledge to grab onto to pull myself back to where I need to be. It's been three months and everything is just getting harder, not easier. So if anyone is wondering why I don't post for a week at a time and am slow to respond to emails and have stopped accomplishing any of the things I need to do, it's because I'm fading and can't seem to stop. I can see things just falling apart around me and I just... can't care enough to do anything about it most of the time.

But. Today was actually an okay day. Hopefully tomorrow will be, too. Later, skaterz.

I think I may have said the same thing in my post just now. Like, verbatum haha But yay Christian!! <3

As for the rest of it? *HUGGLES FOREVER AND EVER*
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:58 am (UTC)
Thank you. *huggles* Also, your icon is adorable. :)
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:43 am (UTC)
yw sweets :)

isn't it though! i got it from an icon community, so if you wanna take it, have at it. just credit whoever made it, yeah? :D
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:50 am (UTC)
I almost feel like they didn't want to turn it into a splooging lovefest so it was super!obvious who was going to win, so they purposely tried to critique it.

I disagree with you about Jillian's collection (I loved it!), but I'm SO thrilled Christian won. I have to admit, I feel as though his collection is almost on a different level than Jillian's and Rami's.
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
I guess I just didn't get her collection. Their were parts of it I liked but it just didn't seem like all of it fit together at all?

That coat her model was wearing though was so super fierce. :)
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:01 am (UTC)
Who went home on ANTM? I can't wait till they update the site and hate surfing the boards and my stupid state is showing basketball and not airing the episode till Saturday.
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:06 am (UTC)
I'll message you to avoid spoilers in comments.

And could Jillian's collection have been any uglier? And less cohesive?

Aw, I really liked some of her pieces. The coat her show model wore was gorgeous. I loved the little ruffles in the back with the red inside. *melts* And I liked most of her skirts. They were fun and something that could go straight from the show to the street. But, yeah. It wasn't cohesive at all...unless you count that it was basically straight from Ralph Lauren : P And that sweater with the loopy things on the sleeves was the single ugliest piece in the show.

Rami's was pretty boring. I did ADORE his red silk top with the crazy high waisted pants. You could just tell how much work was put into it, and how well made it was.

I wasn't sure what to make of Christians last dress. It was so so so so so so much work, and I was definitely impressed, but I can't think of anytime, or anywhere it would work. You couldn't even wear that to the world's most important gala--it's too fierce even for that! lol!
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:13 am (UTC)
I just didn't really get Jillian's, though I did think that coat was fabulous.

I feel like Rami shouldn't have toned his stuff down as much as he did. All of it was so well done, but I was just bored.

As far as Christian's last dress I feel that is what high fashion is all about! Ridiculous pieces that can't be warn anywhere. They're just art. :)
Mar. 6th, 2008 12:39 pm (UTC)
Everything you just said. :)
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:11 am (UTC)
michael kors does that every year. i yell at the tv every time.
so here's my thing:
jillian's was cute til rami's came out.
rami probably should have won, since his stuff was the most practical, most wearable, and most accessible to all women...but he is already established as a designer, and if anyone ever wants any draping, well guurrrlll they know where to go.
christian was fantastic and totally innovative for someone his age. while his items really weren't wearable for anyone other than models or girls at costume parties, his outfits were impeccable, the workmanship was amazing, and for someone his age, he has the eye of someone who has been in the business for years, and that only shows what he's capable of doing and where he's capable of going.

just in case you cared haha
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:20 am (UTC)
I agree that Rami's was the most wearable and all of his stuff was really beautifully done, but I just feel like that's not what high fashion is all about. It's about what Christian did with the ridiculousness and it's more art than clothes, ya know? I really feel like if Rami had just been a little more interesting I would've liked his the best.
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:12 am (UTC)
the thing about the ANTM makeovers is now they all look the same, except the crazy one with the accent and no eyebrows. she kind of freaks me out. I love awkward Lauren
Mar. 6th, 2008 05:16 am (UTC)
I love her, too. I think Aimee finally stands out now, and I love Kater...a with her dark hair. I thought Allison was really pretty but too bad she's a cocky bitch.

*trying desperately to catch up on my shows* Watched last week's Lost last night (omg def one of my favorite episodes ever) and PR finale {I actually like jumped up, squealed and started cheering when Christian won) but haven't seen the ANTM makeovers! And after the gala tonight I feel like I won't have time for both Lost and ANTM so will have to wait. Booo

I think we both really need some time to like chill out, breathe and enjoy... and that's what I'm hoping to do when you come visit. There is a *crazy* exhibit at the Guggenheim (and there is the Art after Dark thing the first Friday of each month... and you'll be here for it!), and there is the New Museum which I still haven't been to, and we need to see a show (Spamalot with Clay Aiken? The Little Mermaid? Naked Boys Singing??), and I bet the weather will be decent so we can tool around Central Park... Omg is it April already?
Mar. 6th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
Lost was fucking phenomenal last week. Like epic. One of the best episodes of all time... definitely season 1 quality.

The art after dark thing definitely sounds good. It seemed like a lot of other people wanted to see Little Mermaid so we should hold off until maybe a group wants to go but I'm down with whatever other show!
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
Shows I want to see: Spamalot, Chicago, Is He Dead? (Mark Twain show about an artist who stages his own death to make the value of his art go up), A Catered Affair (the equivalent of a chick flick - mother vs. daughter, whose wedding is it anyway type of thing), or Grease. Not sure about ticket availability but tell me which ones you would want to see and order of priority and I will investigate!

(And re: The Little Mermaid, a lot of my friends here want to see it too, so maybe we can plan a big group and get a discount!)
Mar. 6th, 2008 04:40 pm (UTC)
Or Naked Boys Singing. I really would totally see that. hehe
Mar. 6th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
What is this Naked Boys Singing business? I feel like I don't have too much interest in Grease or A Catered Affair, but I'd see any of the others.
Mar. 6th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC)
Naked Boys Singing = a 90 minute show wherein naked boys sing, really. :) Like naked and stuff. Butts! Among other choice body parts. hehehe I can't believe this is an actual show. It's supposed to be pretty funny!
Mar. 6th, 2008 01:40 pm (UTC)
I'm disappointed in Ohio, too. But only because I live there and went out and voted and was even more annoyed that my vote didn't help. So dislike Hillary here. So so much.
Mar. 6th, 2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
I think the thing that makes me nervous is Hillary touting the whole "everyone who has won the presidential nominee has won Ohio in the primary" business and how it matters so much in the general election is what's making me nervous. Because it's true! Ohio totally fucked up in 2004. I just... gah. I also feel bad because I got like 3 emails a day asking me to go volunteer in Rhode Island for Barack or make phone calls and I didn't. Hate feeling responsible... :(
