Did I mention that I'm back on carbs, because I am back ON carbs. I had this cheese flatbread thing after spin class this morning and it was heavenly. Anyways, it's been an interesting week in LiLa land, as always. Here's what we've learned:
1. Project Runway is a lot like publishing. Last night there were these two guys who partnered up to make designs for Macy's and they were just so pleased with themselves. They kept going on and on about how they were the best partners ever. They were completely convinced that they were going to win and even Tim Gunn raved about their designs.
Their little Hope Tanks were overflowing.
And then after the runway, they were eviscerated by the judges. I think Michael Kors even said that their tunic looked like it had an attached lobster bib. Ouch.
We can totally relate, aspiring fashionistas. While there's been no mention of lobster bibs, we have been sufficiently humbled by the submissions process, and we just wanted to take a moment to remind you that it's all subjective. So lobster bib or no lobster bib, keep on designing dudes. And remember, one man's lobster bib is another man's "beautifully crafted bouquet neckline with pleating." (Thank you J.Crew.)
2. Laura has obscene amounts of willpower. You guys, I've tried EVERYTHING to get Laura to divulge the StatCounter password, but she refuses. It's horrible. Last night she resorted to reciting the list of hits we normally get on a day to day basis like a little bedtime story. La Grange, IL; Cleveland, OH; Chagrin Falls, OH; Okolona, MS; Auckland, NZ; Oceanside, NY; Oceanside, CA; Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC, Decatur, GA; Edmonton, CA...it was like a little lullaby.
I still hate her.
3. Everyone should be watching Modern Family. Seriously. Get on over to Plot This and watch the first two episodes. You'll thank me later when I make jokes about "Why the Face!?" and you actually understand them.
4. Our writing friends continue to be made of win. Please visit Sara's blog and congratulate her on her fabulous new agent. We are beyond excited! Stream Pirate is a really special book and we can't wait to see it on bookshelves.
5. Laura has a secret. And if you know me, you know that this isn't going over well. At all. She's hijacking the blog for her nefarious purposes on October 16th and she won't tell me anything about it. Nothing. I've decided it must be one of three things:
The only acceptable secret for her to have from me at this stage in our lives is that she's booked a one way ticket to North Korea and is finally going to get herself incarcarated so we can sell a freaking book and she wants to keep me in the dark so I'll be able to show genuine surprise and anguish for the cameras. Now that's a secret I can get on board with.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
