Making it Work

blog_xrayFor whatever reason, my love of Project Runway faded out once the show made the leap from Bravo to Lifetime. It wasn't like it was moved to a different night and time slot or anything and remembering what channel to look for every Wednesday was only mildly confusing. I think the main problem was that I'd spent all of that long, torturous time that passed between seasons getting over the whole "reality" competition formula (not totally true, I still watch Top Chef). Which is too bad because those first seasons of PR held me in a vice like grip from beginning to end (Danny V was robbed!). Still, I miss Tim Gunn enough that I was pretty excited when I came across an article featuring his review of Wonder Woman's new costume. That's right, as of issue #600 Diana Prince receives yet another in a long line of makeovers. In a medium where change is generally met with nerd screams from every corner of the globe, I have to admit that I don't really mind this and neither does Mr. Gunn:

"Capes and cloaks can be easily removed if they get caught on something. Gowns and dresses, not so much. The more form-fitting, the better. So tight pants or skinny jeans, sure. I think Wonder Woman could work a pant."

I love that guy. You can check out the rest of his comments at this link (it's a fun read) and here's what you can find on the shelves this week.

Auf wiedersehen!

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
