Fashion Rearward

A Plan Elegant in its Simplicity
      As y'all know, I'm Project Runway's bitch. While I'm mourning the lack of a reunion show (I've not seen one, at any rate), I'm all lathered up for tonight, when the second half of the finale airs, and we find out if God really is good, by which I mean the Lord of the Universe sends Kenley packing in third place and grants Geek Girl Extraordinaire Leanne the win she so richly deserves.
     Unfortunately, I am also Democracy's bitch, and the last of the presidential debate airs tonight at 8 p.m. - at precisely the same time as the PR finale. Oh no! Terror and tremors! Drama and tears! Helpless flapping of hands and running in steadily smaller circles!
      In short, whatever shall I do?
     Well, it's simple: I'll watch the debate and turn to PR's repeat showing at 10 p.m. I mean, really: what the hell kind of plugged in reporter/almost-citizen do you think I am?
     But ... if I were of any other mind? I might follow Tribune columnist Mark Caro's advice.

If I were interested in both I would think this way... Will anything surprising happening the debate that will be good news? What about in Project Runway? If all I am offered is bad surprises or more of the same... they/it can wait. I would go with Project Runwat.

In reality, I could probably watch PR first, and watch the debate when CSpan 1 and/or 2 reruns it immediately. But I'd feel funny doing that; no matter how predictable the debate is, I feel as if it's my civic duty to listen to it - if only to remind myself of the various campaign planks with which both men build their platform by hearing it again, and again, and again, from their very own mouths.

Yeah, I'd feel bad not watching the debate live. and PR will be on immediately afterward. I really, really, really want Leanne to win. A lot.

A fellow Leanne lover - woo-hoo!

One of the times it's actually good to be on the West Coast and get your shows late.

Yup - the Left Coast has its blandishments ....
