Being the zen/hippy bulls--tter that I am, I often say, "Humanity has officially jumped the shark," which is usually when some grave injustice or unthinkable act of unconscionable evil takes place in society (i.e.: George Zimmerman, homophobia, new Twinkies, etc.). The term "jumping the shark" of course being a metaphor for the time Fonzie water skied and jumped over a shark on Happy Days. Apparently, it was all downstream after that.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Two great tastes that go great together. And, one of my favorite guilty pleasures.
Project Runway, another of my favorite guilty pleasures, just kicked off its latest season. Hosted by supermodel and Elmer Fudd distant cousin Heidi Kluhm, a group of fashion designers are given a challenge each week to come up with the best look. The loser naturally gets kicked off the show. Because, as we all know, "In the world of fashion, one week you're in, the next week you're out." Fashion guru and unintentionally hilarious queen Tim Gunn plays mentor to the would-be fashion stars competing for half a million dollars worth of prizes. The winner is decided after the three remaining contestants show their collections at the coveted annual New York Fashion Week (a priceless prize in itself) at the end of the season. Each week the designers show their creations to a panel of judges that include Heidi, Marie Claire Magazine's acerbically dour Nina Garcia, and adorable fashion designer Zac Posen, who falls a little short on the acid-tongued critiques once spewed forth from Michael Kors.
This week's guest judge was Kate Bosworth. Surely you remember her coma-inducing portrayal of Lois Lane in Bryan Singer's ill-fated Superman Returns? Oh, looky! Finally a comic book connection! Which leads me to my other guilty pleasure, Wonder Woman. And, what does the daughter of Zeus have to do with fashion? Quite a bit, actually. Every time DC changes her costume it creates quite an uproar. So much so, that they nixed the much-lamented pants for the launch of the New 52. I always loved how they would give her different outfits for different occasions on the Lynda Carter television series. The most notable has to be the scuba outfit she wore. It doesn't get much fiercer than that!
