I know that I am.
Mainly because I like to pretend Tim Gunn is my BFF.
Don't worry Meggie Poo.
You're my real BFF.
He's just my Pretend BFF.
As my Pretend BFF, I imagine him coming over and chillin' at my house.
He's not that great of a BFF because he usually just critiques me.
But it's OK.
You need someone to tell you the truth sometimes!
My favorite critique I've heard Tim give on Project Runway was about the monkey house.
(He's recently used it again to describe Snooki)
Here's what he said:
"You know when you walk into the monkey house at the zoo, and you're like, 'Oh my God, this place stinks'? And after you're there 20 minutes you're like, 'It's not so bad'? And after an hour you don't notice? You've been living in the monkey house."
Like, how genius is that?
It applies to so many things.
Wardrobe, design, men, jobs, I could go on forever.
Somethings are just bad but you get used to it.
I've keep that little nugget of advice in the back of my head.
And I've literally, have taken it literal.
When I wrote about the STINKY TREADMILL!
I believe I have finally removed the smell.
I've been a little nervous that I have not removed it...
But have JUST gotten used to the smell.
However, my family came up this weekend.
Said there was no such smell.
And my family is a lot like Tim Gunn.
They will tell you when it stinks.
So I know it's GONE!!
Because Tim Gunn is coming over later.
ps- I love the face of that monkey. It's like he is indignant that Tim Gunn called monkeys smelly.
