Make it work

How much does my boyfriend love me?


He got me my very own Tim Gunn talking bobblehead!! Alex knows me way too well.

Tim says “I can’t want you to succeed more than you do,” “Fab-u-lous,” “Carry on,” and of course, “Make it work!”

I wish it said “Don’t bore Nina,” but I’m not complaining. This thing is awesome.

Update: I’ve had a few comments from folks who don’t know who Tim Gunn is. I was so excited about the bobblehead that I didn’t even think to explain who he is! Tim is one of the hosts of Project Runway, a reality show where designers compete with each other to design clothing each week, and eventually the top three get to do a real fashion show at Fashion Week in New York. There’s always a catch each week, like the designers have to sew a dress using only leaves and flowers, or they have to create an outfit for a drag queen. Tim is sort of the designers’ mentor, and he gives them advice while they’re furiously creating their outfits. His catch phrase is “Make it work!”  He rocks!!!

    Wow, I’ve never even heard of him before! But he definitely sounds like a miniature, plastic version of my best bud. I think I need one of these for when he isn’t around and I need some fabulous advice!

    Yes but does it say:

    Are they being nice to you? Because it’s important?

    Well, is it a good day? [or for variety] Was it a good weekend?

    Need me to make an executive decision, eh? Well, what do you think?

    And my personal fave: Look at all this work getting done!

    Guess who loves Project Runway more than you do? Talk to Frank next weekend!!!!! I think Tim (and Christian Soriano) appeal to his macho feminine side!!!!
