When you start with first graders, you know it’s going to be interesting. And to all you moms out there, if your 7-year-old daughter picks the tattooed and facial-pierced hair stylist YOU are in for TROUBLE later. I’m speaking from experience here. Ditto if your kid wants to look like a Charlie’s Angel or Paris Hilton. I’m just saying.

The kid challenge was hilarious because mini-Jacquelyn and mini-Paris LOVED their hair so much it looked like their smiles might explode. And then there was the fashion show/mock rock of previously eliminated contestants! Daniel is still hilarious, Charlie is still an enormous bitch, and I couldn’t believe how much fun they were all having. We were laughing out loud. Nicole’s impression of Meredith was FREAKY accurate and invisible Gail was awful/hysterically funny.

If the first half wasn’t enough, THEN the challenge happened. Daniel reveals his scheming, plotting, devious side! P.S. Having to cut the other contestant’s family members hair was BRILLIANT. I felt bad that Paolo went home but he kept giving everyone the same hair cut. Plus when Charlie’s sister turned around, Carly and I both went “WHOA.” We also felt like Dee’s mom’s haircut was going to grow out like a Chia Pet (which was unfortunate) and their phrasing was bad. Her styling options weren’t limited as much as what the hell she was going to do when growing it out.

Project Runway was good, until I saw SG- at which point it paled in comparison. I think that Kenle and the Mormon kind of ripped off Leatha Stella and the other dude. I mean, their dress was HOT and lost because Brooke Shields didn’t like the belt. It was terrible because their dress looked so put together and like it came right off a chi chi store rack. I liked the Kenle/Mormon dress but if you saw both dressed on a store mannequin, you’d buy the one with the belt.

Maybe I should eventually learn the designers names? I guess that’s a testament to how invested I’m not.

I’m watching Shear Genius from last week. I adore Charlie because he is such an enormous shit-talker. They’re showing a LOT of that on this episode which makes me nervous that they’re going to send him home this week. On the other hand, he is the catalyst for ALL drama. How cute was Daniel running down the who-hates-whom in the house? (And singing to the dog!)

Burn Notice is staying on its game and I LOVE Fiona more and more with every episode. The look on her face when Sam was getting wailed on = priceless. Psych maintains its hilarity, though I can’t be the only one who doesn’t care for the ‘lil Shawn and Gus’ cartoons. The Closer continues to keep their characters growing and making mistakes. Brenda had a humdinger this week and I’m looking forward to seeing how they develop around that. Also, Gabriel was a moron for suggesting his ex be the one to transfer but it was a completely believable douchebag move.

Project Runway got it right on the top 3 last week. I’d disagree about the actual winner (While I appreciated the super jock wear, I liked the separates better. The one they chose was actually my least favorite out of the three) and I felt bad about the criticism they gave the loser. It was kind of bullshit to call her out for being ‘stuck in the past’ when 2/3 of the designers did a retro look.

[Shear Genius note: OMG, Daniel’s dog is the CUTEST EVAR.]

Mad Men and Generation Kill were both brilliant this week. With Generation Kill, you find yourself laughing at things you probably shouldn’t be laughing at which is, I’d imagine, the point. Mad Men is just gorgeous – beautiful to look at and so tightly scripted that you could bounce a quarter off Don’s ass. Loves it.

I was totally annoyed that Wipeout had a ‘best of’ this week. It hasn’t even been on very long – I would have thought they could plan better.

Flipping Out reunion happens this week and I kind of can’t wait to see what happens.

Spouse will be doing some important stuff this week and I’ve got big exams, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be blogging.

Oh, who am I kidding? I use this to procrastinate. So if it’s copious amounts of blogspam, you’ll know why.

[Edited to add: HOLY CRAP! They finally sent Nekisa home! I can’t say I’m surprised and I’m also glad that I won’t have to hear any more of her excuses. Charlie will have to focus all his anger on Dee.]

I’m calling BS on BOTH judgments tonight (Project Runway and Shear Genius). Capital B, capital S.

On Runway, there is NO WAY Kenley’s dress was better than Leanne’s. No chance. Leanne’s dress was meticulous and any of the judges (including Michael Kors) would have worn it in a heartbeat. No patio chair print, mandarin collar, and puffy sleeve conglomeration there.

And on Shear Genius! I can’t BELIEVE they sent the wrong person home. Note to judges: the person you SHOULD send home is the one you KEEP PUTTING IN THE BOTTOM. Nekisa’s constantly making excuses and her Farrah was AWFUL. It looked like dreadlocks but without the actual dreadlocks.

It was all crazy talk.

One good thing: I’m totally making Tim Gunn saying “Holler at your boy?” as my ringtone. HILARIOUS.
