Commercial Break

I'd thought I take a little break, and do a little commercial venting. Though I'll begin nice and easy, with the Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum commercials. I have nothing against either but they remind me of how much I miss Project Runway. I don't want to see Tim Gunn selling Tide, I want to see him in the work room saying Make it Work. I don't want to see Heidi Klum selling diet coke, I want see her air kissing someone, Auf Wiedersehen. And I miss Nina Gracia and Michael Kors.

Now the reason for this post and the venting.

I absolutely hate the Pizza Hut commercial where they fly the pasta over to Italy and serve it at a fancy Italian restaurant. All the patrons love the food and they're really surprised its Pizza Hut. Every time I see that commercial I am like really get the F out of here. I am not asking for truth in advertising but thats just beyond ridiculous. You expect me to believe Italians can't tell the difference between fine cuisine pasta and Pizza Hut pasta come on now. I don't know who is worse the person who came up this idea or the one who gave it the green light.

I too am jonesing for some Project Runway. I took my 8 year old daughter on a little field trip to Mood Fabrics in NYC recently and it made me miss the show all the more!

The books store I work has Project Runway kits in the children section, that I think (you) your daughter would love.

I've been watching early seasons of PR with my children, thanks to Netflix. At ages 9 and 8, they love it (and I always watch it with them, in case anything needs 'splaining. I hope that doesn't make me an irresponsible parent, but in the end you've got to know your kids. Definitely one of my favorite shows.

I absolutely hate that stupid Pizza Hut commercial, too! It is so absurd. No one can believe it! It makes me want to never eat there and definitely never eat their pasta, not the other way around.
