You are what you like.
snitches get stitches

I think I have a mild form of obsessive compulsive disorder. I've found myself keeping routines before I go to bed and having panic attacks lately when things go awry. Also, if I like something, I get obsessed with it and I have to get everything associated with said thing. Like, I'm totally obsessed with Wall-E, so I've seen it 5 times in the theater (I'm about to go for #6), bought 2 Wall-E toys from Toys 'R Us, bought 11 toy Wall-E kids' watches (I got a bundle of 10 off ebay and have been giving them to friends and little kids, I swear), bought the soundtrack, bought the XBOX 360 video game and I subscribed to the Wall-E podcast. It's a sickness, I think.
Anyways, with that in mind, I really try to AVOID television shows, and especially reality television. Now I buy a lot of TV DVD's and watch them whenever, but I really avoid shows that are on TV because if I like it, then I'll have to totally watch every episode and plan whatever night it comes on around that show and get upset about it and everything. This is especially true for reality television challenge shows, for some reason. I've wasted DAYS watching marathons of "America's Next Top Model" and "Beauty and the Geek" and other STUPID challenge shows, all because I let myself watch one episode and I got wrapped up in it. So I just watch "The Office" on NBC and wait for every other show to come out on DVD. It's just easier that way.
ANYWAYS, I've recently gotten wrapped up in "Project Runway". I don't know how it happened... I've never seen an episode before this season and I don't have hardly any interest in fashion. But, I really feel like it is a great show. I like how almost high-brow it is for a reality show... there are no catfights, no sexual relationships, no huge arguments, no alliances and backstabbings, no drama-baiting by the producers... it's just a competition show that focuses on what these designers make. And they make some really beautiful clothes in amazing ways... I can't believe they can make this stuff in just one day. I don't feel gross the same way I feel while watching EVERY OTHER reality show... I feel great while watching it. I feel like I'm being uplifted and exposed to great art, style and hard work at every turn. I don't mind that I will be obsessed with this show now.
And it also doesn't hurt that I'm totally IN LOVE with three of the girls this season.
My favorite is Kenley. She's so gorgeous and talented, just basically my dream girl... although she's also so intimidatingly perfect that I would be afraid to even pick up her trash, for fear that I wouldn't be worthy. I hope she wins.

My second favorite lady is Leanne. She is really talented and pretty, and I love her glasses that she wears while designing her clothes. She also seems more of a real person, like someone you would meet at the bookstore. Plus, I think I could offer serious competition to her boyfriend. Watch your back, doggy.

And lastly, my third favorite lady is Kelli. I love the beret and the tattoos, and she looks amazing with red hair (I'm a sucker for redheads, for reals), but she is way too intimidating. And not like Kenley's "I'm perfect" thing... I think Kelli could/would totally beat me up. For no real reason. And I would be delighted that she touched me, even though it was her fist touching my eye socket.
