    Goodbye, John

    This episode was all about you.

    We learned why you were so angry last week, and were impressed by how you informed your fellow designers you were HIV positive and that you thought your testosterone injection was responsible for your uncontrollable anger.

    In this episode you had several crucial setbacks, and to be fair, nothing seemed to go your way. But you kept plugging away, hoping to stay in the game. Dahling, we thank you for making those first two Top Design episodes ROCK! And we simply loved that adorable girlie hug you gave Tod towards the end. Ta! We'll miss you.

    Clap your hands, everyone, and send John your love.

    Umm...that was testosterone shot, not estrogen. That would be a different issue entirely.

    Thanks, K.L.Smith! Whew! Not that was a doozie of a mistake. I can only attribute it to lack of sleep.

    Thanks for setting me straight. :)

    The room was NOT finished - the judges had no choice.

    I thought the decorator (?Marisa?) who said she was the mother of 2 boys and didn't know anything about designing a room for a girl should have been asked to leave. WTF!! She's a woman and was a liitle girl once. That to me gives her an advantage....

    That was Andrea, and I agree. That was a strange statement coming from someone who had been a little girl once.

    And beyond that....If you are a designer, it's your responsibility to keep up with trends and design concepts that are new and interesting. You can't just call yourself an interior designer, splash some paint up on the wall and get money for it...it's a job like everything else.

    It's the same way I felt when...do I dare mention his name...sure why not...Jeffrey couldn't design for a larger woman. If you don't have the tools to adapt you are limiting yourself and your ability to do your job in the workforce.

    Damselfly - great comparison! It made no sense to me in PR that some of the designers didn't know how to design for, or make, clothes for any size woman and, similarly, an interior designer should be able to come up with someone creative for any taste. It may not be one's own taste or specialty - but they still should be up to the challenge!
