Project Runway

I typically don’t like reality shows, but I’m severely addicted to watching Project Runway. It’s my little escape.

When you’re trying to solve world hunger all day, you need to take a break sometimes and look at what’s happening in the fashion industry. It’s my natural anti-depressant.

Anyway, I missed the show yesterday due to a late night mass.

I wasn’t too worried about finding out what happened because I have TIVO.

Well, my assistant just spoiled the ending by telling me who got kicked off. He just came into my office ranting about last night’s results. I didn’t even have a chance to stop him.

I’m pretty upset right now.

We all have to have our little guilty pleasures. Sorry yours was spoiled.

Your Holiness, please don't fire your assistant over this one incident. I think it might be difficult for you to find another one so hot -- oops! I meant to say, uniquely qualified to fill the role.

Pox on your assistant for ruining this for you. I love Project Runway. I have a friend who used to ruin Big Brother episodes, but I had a come to Jesus meeting with her and she quit.

Oh and is it against your judgement for people to get awful tatoos on their necks--especially if they look like dwarves in skin tight pants? I sometimes wonder the morality of tatoos.

Thanks for your answer--and thanks for visiting my blog!

Dear Mr. Pope,
I hate when people reveal the spoilers to shows you havent seen. Which reminds me...have you ever seen the movie, Titanic? If not, I'll save you the 3 awful hours you'll never get back. The boat sinks.

Your Holiness,

That is just so sad. I'm very sorry that the show was ruined for you.

But it's a new month now! So Rabbit rabbit!

Hmmm, I am thinking that you need to have at least one hour a week that you can spend indulging yourself. I'm more of a History Channel kind of girl, but, oh well.

I am wondering about tattoos, too, Paris. My cousins seem to be trying to cover their bodies with them. I don't know that they're sinful, just kind of creepy.

If I am not mistaken ,didn't you have in the past some kind of issue with your taylor? Didn't you changed the traditional tayloring house, the one that had been dressing popes and bishops for the last 300 hundred years?

I just got how intensely fashion- conscious you are, and how typical that is for a german pope to begin to change things.

So I guess these things are good.
You should probably try to get into this show and sew your concepts and design new dressing gowns for future generations.... This may be awesome!!!!!!!!!!

I can be your agent, and you could become a new version of Uli... or Santino... or Jeffrey or Keith or Bradley.... or this belgian famous um... ummm. Is there one???


This may offend Karl Lagerfeld but you should develop a thicker skin to deal with those fashion icons.

But note that you first need to sew. No cheating allowed. No sir. Otherwise, no contract.
Well, you think about it....

I'm so sorry that handsome man ruined the ending of the show for you. You need to lock him in his room until after the show is over, so he won't spoil anymore endings for you...and besure to remove his TV from his room.

Also make him say pennance.

THe Pasadena lady has a good suggestion! Maybe you should spank him, too. This might make you both feel better--I'm sure he feels just awful about spoiling your pleasure.

Morgana Anakina Black is very right about that. The audience would need only to see the real you .... the one behind the mask of the pope and see what your real habilities are. People need to see your talents and your likes and dislikes,your creativity in design BEFORE they can judge you and like what you have to offer. Personnally I think one of the judges (I bet Nina is going to belittle your habilities as designer declaring you as boooooring.) Michael is going to say "That piece is just not well made" and Heidi is going to say

"Pope, we expected something alluring from you but we thought you failed. Pope Joe..... you are out....")

Lastly, Tim GUnn will add:
Pope .... we need your space, get your things.

No, Heidi will say:
Pope Joe, we expected in this task to come across your holly ability to construct a gown for a mass that shows nothing but your best attributes. Instead you gave us nothing but a vulgar representation of a pope from Hollywood.
We wanted holly,
you gave us.... hollywoodesque.
Pope Joe... you are out!

Your Holiness:

I seem to be in the minority here but we Christians are used to being lone voices in the wilderness so I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this really should be the last time Georg gets to spoil your guilty pleasure. I say fire his tennis-sculpted rear! You might approach one of the American TV networks about producing a "Project Pope's Personal Secretary" to replace his Divine Handsomeness with someone who fully respects your pontifical down time. I'm sure the faithful would could assist in designing the right type of "challenges" and "tasks" for such a show.

First, welcome back, we missed you. Did John Paul have all these problems with the help? The tailors, the bedcovers (wadaya callem, dublet covers?) And that cheese didn't walk away unassisted. Lotta slackery going on in V City.

Remember what Pope John XXXIII said when asked how many people worked at the Vatican? "Oh, about half of them."

My daughter records this show on the DVR, and I usually watch it with her if I'm around when she decides to watch it. Bottom line... I'm hooked too.
Vincent deserved the boot.
Your assistant deserves the boot too for ruining it for you. Give him a holy kick in the buttocks!

Very clever of you. I wonder which side of your mouth you're speaking out of now that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has taken Islam to task for its evil.

Or do you all think you'll look good in burqas and turbans?

Delete this childish mockery and do something to protect the future from another 9/11 instead.

I know men of a higher calling are supposed to be forgiving but can you banish your assistant? That is just downright disrespectful. ;)
Oh and I must confess even though I am not Catholic and although I hate Paris Hilton, yes I know its wrong to hate, but I really like her new album. I find it catchy. No I haven't purchased it.

On the subject of fashion, your highness, is it true that you have blind nuns to dress you in the morning and wash the papal underpants? How does one get to be considered for such a position? I'd be willing to join a convent and am in the early stages of glaucoma.
