Big Game, Big Loser

Top Chef recap, y'all!

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were greeted by Top Chef Masters alum Tim Love. Tim has a psychotic smile. It's creepy! The cheftestants had to pair a sipping tequila w/ a tasty dish. Sucking it hard core were Crotch Head Heather and her Chili's inspired poop-fest, Stupid Hair Accessory Chris and his dry chicken & Sarah's under cooked risotto. Sarah then bitched that risotto should be cooked al dente. News flash! Risotto should smooth & creamy, not hard & chunky. Winning a bucket of money (immunity is now off the table) was Ty and his spicy Thai flavoured clams.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants were assigned into pairs and had to make big game meat dishes. WITH A TWIST! The cheftestants had to taste each others dishes and select the 3 best & worst teams w/ one team going home. On a winning streak was Ty and Edward & their delicious delicious quail offering. I've never had quail but I'm very intrigued about it's flavour.  Sadly Dakota & Nyesha got chopped because Dakota under cooked her venison. Oy! Disappointed :-(

Heather is a C U Next Tuesday! She bullied Beverly, she yelled at Grayson, she thinks her shit does not stink. Please please please send her home, Top Chef Gods of Fate!

Fat Assing It

Holiday Christmas party at Lombardo's (home my second date w/ SB wherein he spilled water all over the table) & I accidentally ate eggplant parm. Eggplant is abhorrent. The texture is just so damn vile! However, Lombardo's does not fuck around w/ their parms. Not a hint of skin on the eggplant, sliced razor thin. Perfecto!

The ever awesome Albany Jane organized a spectacular evening w/ a grouping fantastic people at Sushi X. I'm not a seafood eater but I do enjoy going out. Plus if SB doesn't get sushi every few months, he turns into a crank monster. I had for the first time ever vegetarian sushi rolls: rice, seaweed, cucumber, peanuts & avocado. It tasted extra nummy slathered in horseradish.

Sushi X night was also SB's birthday. Free beer at Ye Olde English Pub for the birthday boy.
He drank a whole liter of Foster's!

Central Steak = salad bar, garlic mashed potatoes. SB got a hanger steak w/ a fried egg. And he was especially happy that PBR was on the drink menu.

Saturday was a pre-Hanukkah celebration w/ my brother & his family. Sis-in-law made chocolate cake w/ chocolate filling and chocolate chips. KICK ASS!

Zumba, yr my only hope!

Shady Lady

I did not watch the Top Model finale because it looked like it was going to be a mess......AND boy was I right!

Angelea was mysteriously disqualified. Lisa was re-crowned the winner. Why? She photographs 50.....blergh!

Allison Allison Allison, always the bridesmaid never the bride! Why? Oh why? She's gorgeous, she has a unique look and she's able to use multisyllabic words in a sentence.

Farewell, Top Model, until March.


Top Chef recap time!

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were assigned a mother sauce , expand upon it & make a dish. Insert sauce pun here. The losers were Dakota (awww!) and her too sweet peach infused bechamel, Nyesha's muddled tomate and ras el hanout & Bev's espagnole wasabi. Bev, enough w/ the Asian style...branch out, take chances! Winning immunity was Grayson's hollandaise and scallops. Nice!

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to work together to create a four course dinner featuring moo moo cow steak. Ty-lor cut the webbing of his hand whilst butchering meat. I gotta tell ya, this was the most boring uninspiring menu ever. Heather won w/ Ed's tres leches cake. Heather is a stealth bitch because #1 she's already made this cake for the quincenera challenge #2 she called out Bev for spending too much time & energy on shrimp AND she did this in the stew room right before judging. I'm no Bev fan but DAMN that's passive aggressive. And I can't believe she won this week! BLAH! And packing it up was Whitney's crap potatoes au gratin. Goodbye, Whitney! We hardly knew ye.....and that's the damn truth because everytime she came on screen, I was all, "Who dat?"

Maybe next week the cheftestants will be more creative.

My World is Beginning

I am a sufferer of depression and it gets progressively worse during the winter months. But one thing that keeps me going: Rankin/Bass Christmas specials. To date, I own all the ones available on DVD. I'm still waiting for The First Christmas Snow, Little Drummer Boy Part II, Jack Frost and The Life & Times of Santa Claus to be released. FINGERS CROSSED FOR NEXT YEAR!

Obviously, most people know and love "Rudolph" & "Santa" but included on my compilation DVDs are some lesser known productions. "Little Drummer Boy" is awesome because it includes a death by stabbing and fire scene.

"Nestor the Long Eared Donkey" isn't bad but the ending is ridiculous. The story goes that there was a little donkey w/ ears so long they drag on the ground and he trips over them all the time. The only thing protecting him from being euthanized is Nestor's mother. A bunch of Roman centurions come and take all the donkeys except for Nestor. But he gets the boot because his owner has lost money and help on his farm. Nestor miraculously reunites w/ his mother and then she promptly dies during a snow storm. Nestor and his guardian angel, Tilly, travel to Bethlehem so that Nestor can carry Mary, Joseph and unborn baby Jesus to the stable. Nestor's ears even act as sail on the water! Then, for some unknown reason, Nestor goes back to the farm and he's treated like a hero. What the what? How would his former owner know about Nestor and baby Jesus? Why do the other animals no longer despise his very being?

"Cricket on the Hearth" just plain sucks monkey balls! Marlo Thomas is "Bertha" and she has the world's most annoying voice EVER. And for some reason a shifty eyed sailor shoots a crow. Not to mention it has nothing to do w/ Christmas at all. Hans Conreid is the only saving grace.

Check out my awesome bookcase.

The Burgermeister Meisterburger is crashing the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer party. And Yukon Cornelius is letting him know that BM is not welcome!

Santa is trying to wave his dick around the two Bumbles but they're going to rip his head off. And I found out why Bumble has been so persecuted.

So so Wrong

Top Model is a train wreck and I gawking at the carnage.

I can barely recap this dreck!

*sigh* The four remaining hamsters had to write a travel blog for Allison is clearly the most articulate & a free lance writer BUT was deemed to "high flautin'". BLERGH! Angelea won the challenge because she went to the Greek ghetto. Oh, the tourism board of Greece must be loving this!

For the photo shoot, Tyra(nt) directed a pseudo artsy bullshit video. THE WORST!

Laura's country charm finally wore then and she was sent a-packing.

I want Allison to win but it will most likely be a horse race between old lady Lisa and drag queen Angelea

Folksy yet Progressive

Top Chef recap, y'all!

The cheftestants were informed that were on the road to Dallas. And no, Beverly, Dolly Parton is not from Dallas. Ms. Parton is from the Smokies.

En route to their desitination, the cheftestants were pulled over by the local good ol' boys. How dumb are these cheftestants? They honestly thought they were in trouble w/ the law....SHEESH! Anyways, the cops directed everyone to an empty cornfield where it was revealed that their Quickfire ingredients were in their trunks. Survival kit meals! Basically canned foods. AND no utensils. I object to this Quickfire! How can anyone make a tasty, nice looking plate of food w/ shit from a can? BOO!
The stinkers: Whitney and her tinny tin tinned food, Dakota and her too sweet stir fry & Chiclets Chris tofu disaster. Winning immunity and some dough was Lindsay and her Vienna sausage Saltine club sandwiches.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants were then trucked out to an affluent suburb and divided into apps, entrees and desserts to be served at a progressive dinner. A progressive dinner is when each part of a meal is eaten different houses in a neighborhood. I find this idea so intriguing! Did it originate in the 70's along w/ key parties? The hosts and hostesses were a bunch of vapid wealthy idiots. You could totally tell that Tom Colicchio thought so as well.

So far, the cheftestants have been outstanding or awful. No middle ground whatsoever. Winning dish went to Paul's appetiser of fried Brussels sprouts w/ grilled prosciutto. OH MY GOD YES YES YES!!! And packing it up was Chuy's over cooked salmon & feta crap in a corn husk.

And please, cheftestants, no more foods that look like mouldy ashy cigars.

T-Boz, Chili & Left Eye

Top Chef recap time...a day late.

The chestestants were greeted by Padma (of course!) & Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feninger of Top Chef: Masters. Mary Sue & Susan own and cook in a very successful Mexican grill. So, yum! For Quickfire challenge, the cheftestants could choose from an array from chili peppers from the mild poblano to the nuclear fire of the ghost chili & create a tasty dish. The hotter the chili the more money it's worth to the winning dish PLUS immunity. Sucking it were Beverly because she didn't cook anything (chopped chilies w/ dressing is a salad for fuck's sake!), Richie's not hot scallop & Chuy's tinned tomato overload. Winning the ducats and immunity was Paul and his ghost chili chilled coconut soup. Super yum!

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants were randomly split into 5 teams of three *slams head into wall* for a chili cook off for 200 guests at the rodeo. The guests chose the winning team while the judges had the nasty task of giving someone the boot. As a twist, there was no time limit, the cheftestants were allowed to stay up all night if they wanted to. And they all did....which I don't entirely understand because once the meat and the veggies are in the pot yr done cooking....but what do I know, I'm not a professional cheftestant. Also, none of the chilis contained beans of any sort. It's a Texas thing, no beans in the chili. Boo! The beans are the best part.

The winning team was Chiclets teeth Chris, blowhard Sarah & Chuy's chili con carne w/ roasted corn garnish. Honestly, I don't think the judges would have chosen this chili because of the thin texture & lack of dunking implement.

Losing team was Nyesha, Richie & Beverly's too sweet chili mole...though their cornbread got rave reviews. AGAIN a twist: the three losers had to cook head to head using their failed chili and make a great new dish. In the end, Richie made a bad plate of food, cried like a little girl w/ a skinned knee and was gently comforted by hair accessory Chris.

Hmm chili!

The Rumours of my Death have been Greatly Exaggerated

It started off as a cold. Which led to a stupid fever blister on my lip. Then the congestion made me throw up green mucus. Then goopy stuff came out of my eyes & they sealed shut when I slept.

Bronchitis: pain, wheezing

Asthma: scary scariness not being able to breath

Tonsil infection: sore mucus throat

The thing that pisses me off is that my regular GP is on vacation this week & they couldn't just squeeze me in as an emergency. Off to the Doc in a Box, got the hook up w/ a free inhaler & it only cost bucks more than a follow up visit w/ my usual place. I declined the script for codeine cough syrup as codeine makes me feel freaked out & cough syrup tastes like ass. It didn't help that the doc said "it make you high!"

Hot chocolate & Kahlua time!

Haters be Hatin'

Confounded by Top Model for it's lack of consistency...yet again!

Miss J, walking coach extraordinaire, decided to be a shit mixer and had the hamsters critique each other's walks & portfolios. Lisa & Angelea gave everybody the stank eye, Dominque was being a stealth bitch under the guise of "I see so much of myself in you!" and Laura & Allison trying to be the nice guys. But as it turns out in a blind survey the majority voted that Allison has the least model potential (read: BIG threat) while Laura has the most (read: no real competition)

For the photo shoot, the hamsters had to pose in modern couture in the style of ancient Greek games. Angelea did not know what a shot put or "pit shot" was.....seriously? There was no track & field at yr high school in the 617? Laura & her archery gear won best photo. I'm going to agree because she has been looking busted lately but her veiled hat thing looked fantastic. And going home was Dominque. What the what? Over Angelea? Why? Dominque is gorgeous & takes photos & has a fantastic runway walk. She's a little long in the tooth but way way way cuter Angelea & her bad acne & drag queen personae.

Recap will be back in two weeks!

There's a Snake in my Boot

Back in the saddle w/ the first real episode of Top Chef!

For the Quickfire, the cheftestants had to prepare a dish using rattlesnake. Hm, no sir! Rattlesnake sounds so unappetizing. And thankfully, the snakes were already dead & I was spared watching the cheftestants bash in rattlesnake brains. Sucking it hardcore were Paul's non-existent snake peach BBQ boringness, Richie's overly jerked snake & Nyesha's chewy snake poo. Winning the Quickfire and immunity was Dakota's beer battered tempura. I'm kinda digging the tattooed lady that is Dakota.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants were split into two teams (GRR! ARGH!) to cater a quincenera for a very sweet 15 y/o girl. She got peppered w/ questions: so far, so good for the cheftestants. Then it all went to shit for the Pink Team! First, Keith decided it would be far more economical to buy pre-cooked shrimp.........ummmm, what? Not so much. Then nothing but packaged tortillas as far the eye could see. Really?! In a cooking competition? Disappointing! Needless to say they lost to the Green Team, though no cheftestant was singled out for being a super duper winner. And packing it up was Keith and his completely soggy enchiladas.

I wish Blanca the 15 y/o would be a judge every week, Hugh A. gives me the creeps!

Attack of the Killer Bees!

I'm on a new vitamin regimen of Vitamin D, B6, B12, Omega 3 & Calcium w/ Vitamin D....all of this is supposed to improve my mood. BUT I am still a raging bitch-face!

I was slowly creeping on my commute home gnashing my teeth & hating the world, when I smelled rich aroma of a wood burning stove. I was transported by to 1979 to my neighbors' basement. They had a steamer trunk that housed board games. We're playing Life, Diff'rent Strokes is on the TV & I'm eating Ruffles and drinking Coke....and I am so supremely happy.

Zorba the Geek

Top Model recap time!

The hamsters are in Greece, hey, maybe they could solve their financial crisis!

For the challenge, the hamsters had to give a 2 minute speech about themselves to the Greek "press" (read bored Grecians that wanted to be on TV) AND they had to incorporate Greek phrases and mention something from Greek mythology. The winner won a neato gold wrist cuff. Some of them came off as inarticulate, Angelea talked about taking a leak and the winner was my sweet sexy alien Allison.

For the photo shoot, the hamsters had to pose in underwear (which was actually very cute, SHOCKING!) and lay in a gigantic bowl of Greek salad. Ugh! Isn't "Greek" salad an American invention? This was so fucking degrading. Of course, Shannon the 1000 year old corpse refused to do the shoot because it's against her principles to pose in underwear. For cereal, that underwear set looked like swimwear. Plus, Shannon has worn more provocative outfits than bathing suit looking underwear....sooooo....what the fuck? Winning photo went to Dominique, thankfully Allison came in second. And packing it up was Shannon, yawn.

Melt downs galore next week!

Bubble Boy

Top Chef recap time!

Again we were forced to watch the whittling down for the final 16 cheftestants. Wake when it's over! Grr....grumble grumble!

Anyways, the remaining 10 hopefuls gathered around some proteins & a cloche (the silver dome thing that covers room service food). Picking, choosing, blah blah blah. And....underneath the cloche was a time pre-set to a time that the hopefuls had to abide by. Winners, losers, bubbles.

Then the bubblers had to square off for the final two cheftestant spots. To me the bubblers had it easy, they could make whatever they wanted. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Two peeps got through. And apparently, later on Bravo, Chef Tom had another showdown w/ the discarded hopefuls for one more spot on Top Chef. I have no idea who it 17 cheftestants then, I guess?

Next week we will have a real episode.

Slicin' up Eye Balls

If there's one thing in the world I love the most, it's the road trip.

Last Saturday SB & I drove out to Long Island to see Pixies in Huntington on their Lost Cities tour.

Thank God for the GPS otherwise we'd still be driving in circles down there! Waayyyy too many parkways and highways and bypasses down there for this suburbanite.

We stayed at the Executive Inn in Westbury, it was perfectly cromulent.

Pixies were better than amazing!!!! They performed "Doolittle" in it's entirety. Great great stuff!

The next day we hit up Trader Joe's, though they are essentially the same, each store offers a little something different to the patrons. Damn, I love Trader Joe's!

We took the Taconic Parkway home, beautiful drive w/ no cars. This weekend reeked of awesomeness!

Stop the Insanity!

Top Model recap time!

I am still lamenting the loss of Kayla......damn you, Tyra(nt)!

This was the single most painful episode of Top Model since Tyra(nt) put out "Shake ya Booty"! The hamsters were forced to write a song, record said song & then make it into a video. Awful awful stuff! My eyes and ears are still recovering!

Allison was the best of the worst.....she's fucking adorable and if she doesn't win, I may put my foot through the TV. Packing it up was Alexandria....FINALLY!

Next week: Greece

Psyche Out!

Top Chef has started back up again!

This time around the cheftestants will be cooking all around the great state of Texas. And HOLY COW, there are 29 cheftestants! That seems a bit excessive & ponderous. But there was a twist! The cheftestants are exactly on the show, instead, they must cook for a spot. I think this premises is incredibly stupid. I don't want to watch a bunch of auditions, I want to watch a competition.

For the first round of cuts (silly cooking pun intended), some of the cheftestants had to cook a part of a pig. A cut of pork per cheftestants. HOWEVER, some of the cuts were adjacent to each other and required butchering. Which lead us to our first elimination, Stone....Chef Tyler Stone. A ridiculous man w/ overly plucked eyebrows whom hacked up a delicious side o' pork, leaving one poor cheftestant w/ exactly 3 ounces of tenderloin. They didn't taste his food! Then Colin the vegan, who has cooked meat in over 7 years, got rejected at judges table because his plate already looked like it was chewed up and spit out. The judges are not fucking around this year!

AND then another twist, instead of a simple in or out determination, there was a 3rd option: the bubble. If a cheftestant ends up in the bubble, then have to make yet another dish to stay in the competition.

The next round of hopefuls were shown a bevy of proteins but they all had to agree to use just one.....rabbit. No more on the spot eliminations, sadly.

And that was it: we have cheftestants, bubblers & one more group yet to cook. I found this episode completely unnecessary.

Hope this season gets better.

Everybody Needs a Gimmick

Top Model recap time!

Hamsters had to create their own signature fragrance. Because nothing says legitimate model like stinky perfume in a tacky bottle! The hamsters then had to promote their stank at a "gala" while splish splashing in a bathtub. I think this was ridiculous & humiliating idea & so did Bianca because she refused to get in her tub. I couldn't get behind her though as she kept comparing herself to Beyonce and other A-listers. Bianca, get over yrself! Yr not even remotely in the same league as Ms. Knowles. And lookie look! It's Cycle 3 winner Eva (Pigford) Marcille. Don't know why she's going by Marcille now but she looks wicked cute w/ white blonde hair. And winning over the crowd and immunity from elimination was Lisa.

For the photo shoot, the hamsters had to portray either Snookie from "Jersey Shore" or Nene from Stupid Fake Whore Housewives while pretending to ride a motorcycle. Hey, I remember the motorcycle shoot from Cycle 3 while the hamsters were in full harajuku regalia....good times! And a much more awesome shoot to boot. Winning photo went to Nene Lisa, she actually looked pretty. Going home was Bianca because she sucks and Kayla.....KAYLA! I call shenanigans. Shannon should have gotten the boot in her old boring ass. My poor, sweet Kayla!

Next week: more shitty acting!

Sugar Coma

Finale of Top Chef: Just Desserts season 2.

Boring boring.......Chris won....boring boring

A very underwhelming season to say the least. I think the problem is there's only so much you can do w/ pastries and desserts.

Top Chef: Texas starts tonight, hope it's better than DC was.

Bon appetit!

Tuesday, November 1, 2011


It's no secret that Hallowe'en is my absolutely favourite holiday. I usually start planning our costumes some time around August.

We went as a 1970's private investigator duo! My dream was to find some really awesome retro duds at a local thrift store/consignment shop but it didn't exactly work out like that. Sexybeast got outfitted from the Troy Good Will, we found an excellent tacky mouldy green Hawaiian shirt and an eye watering suit jacket. Douche bag aviator sunglasses completed the look.

I couldn't find jack shit and ended up buying a crappy "retro" costume from The Costumer. BOO! But I did come up w/ a great back story for my character. Her name is Candy and she was a former prostitute saved by her new "employer". She answers phones and hinders all the investigations.

All in all, it was great night. And SB has awesome knife skills.

Kitten Fight

Top Model insanity time!

For the Challenge, the hamsters were divided into 2 teams for a game of flag football & there was some familiar faces on the teams......they brought back the ousted hamsters to play and be further humiliated. Lisa got a lot of elbows to her face, not an improvement. Flags were thrown & the hamsters had to pose. Kayla had the best posings & won some blahblahblah who cares?

For the Photo Shoot, the hamsters posed in duos w/ amazing alien bad ass model Coco Rocha in a three way wrestling battling match. Angelea had a mental breakdown during the shoot. I wish she left! Bre kept screeching at the top of her lungs which annoyed the piss out of Coco. Bre, please don't disturb the talent. Photo of the week went to Dominque & I got to be honest, I'm all kinds of loving her this season. Good job, pretty lady! And getting da boot was Bre. Looking back at Bre's photos, I agree w/ this decision. She's pretty fucking awful....but at least she has cute hair. Wish that it had been a double elimination because Alexandria is stinking up the joint!

Faking Fakers

I all snuggled to watch Top Chef:Just Desserts last week. Down to the final four. No Quickfire! Straight to the Elimination Challenge, make an awesome dessert that looks like savoury food. I feel asleep! Pretty indicative of how I felt about this season. Sally won, BOO! Orlando finally went home.

One more episode to go! Then next week Top Chef: Texas......29 cheftestants.....29! DEAR LORD, SAVE ME!
