Hello, faithful readers! Many of you are probably tuning in today to read our precap for the first episode of the new season of Project Runway, which begins today.
But there isn't a precap.
It was a difficult decision, but we're not going to preview this season of Project Runway. (Please, please! Put away the pitchforks!) Yes, we suffered from bland-fatigue last season, as so many others did, but that's not why we're bailing. We're guardedly optimistic about this new season, and certainly willing to tune in to the show and then read the snarky reviews from all our favorite recappers.
But Real Life, as they say on the interwebs, has intervened. In a good way, to be sure, but it has intervened, nonetheless.
You see, we're going to Japan for two months! Woohoo! You can read all the details here. It was a somewhat sudden thing, but when an opportunity like this comes along, you put everything else aside and you just do it. Consequently, we'll be leaving before the end of the new Project Runway season, and we wouldn't be able to finish what we began if we started the precaps up again.
We also have day jobs (of sorts), which we still have to do until we leave for Japan. Which means that our Japan trip-planning has to happen in the evenings after work, which is, traditionally, when we've written up all those lengthy Project Runway posts--to the tune of 7-8 hours a week working on them. (Yikes!) Simply put, if we didn't spend that time getting ready for what might possibly be the trip of a lifetime, we would never forgive ourselves.
And so many of the things we do with our free time around here have to be put on hold, Project Runway precaps among them.
We're truly sorry to disappoint those of you who stuck with us through thick and thin (lots and lots of thin), and we really appreciate all your support and your kind comments and your feedback during the past few seasons. Thanks too to the great folks at Blogging Project Runway, who have been tireless supporters of our previewing efforts. We hope to be back at it next season--another possibly life-changing event not withstanding.
In the meantime, let's start the show!
