Just the other night I got home too late to watch the Project Runway finale for Season 13. Since I’m too cheap to pay for a DVR, recording it wasn’t an option. But wait, Project is on Lifetime, a network that repeats their primetime shows later in the evening.
Clearly I had an easy fix: watch the 11:00 p.m. replay, right?
One second I’m feeling smug about staying awake long enough to watch the final four contestants’ Fashion Week collections. Next thing I know I’m drooling on my chin and an infomercial huckster is trying to sell me a juicer.
It was two and a half hours later and all I could think was “Who won?”
That’s right, I made it through three of the four contestants’ collections but quickly realized I had no memory of the fourth. I’d fallen asleep and missed the best part.
So, minutes ago I Googled the results.
You guessed it, the fourth designer’s collection—the one I snored through, the one I was most looking forward to seeing—won.
Color me bitter.
And sleep deprived.
Even after staying awake longer than I knew I should I still didn’t get to watch the whole show. Oh and once I woke up I couldn’t go back to sleep!
The only good news I have about the whole night is I turned off my TV before I could convince myself I needed a new juicer.
