Meow, Baby!

Top Model recap lateness!

We get hit w/ more of Alexandria's asshattery. She really is just a foul mess.

Ugh! Stupid pointless Cover Girl make up instructional video. Blech! The hamsters were grouped into 3 teams of 3 & randomly chose "creative director", "talent" & "writer". And whoa betide Monique & Molly as they were stuck w/ Stank Ass Alexandria. Alexandria pissed and moaned and was horrible horrible horrible to Monique & Molly. To no one's surprise they did not win this challenge. The winning team was Kasia (so cute!), Mikaela (BLAAAHHHH!) & Brittani (also adorable!)

For the photo shoot, the hamsters were posing at the zoo w/ a baby jaguar in Rachel Zoe's faux fur. Blech! Faux fur :P But baby jaguar was freaking adorable! Pig tailed Hannah got winning photo. She does nothing for me. And packing it up was clueless Dalya. Meh.

Next week: mud pit!

Nearly There

A day late for the Top Chef recap.

The final three: Antonia, Blais & Fathead. One of these things is not like the others. Can you guess?

I loved loved loved this Quickfire Challenge: the chefestants had to assign each other a quickfire twist from seasons past. God I love how these cheftestants try to fuck each other over! Fathead assigned Antonia the using only canned and dried foods dish, Antonia gave Blais the make a hot dog dish & Blais chose the one pot dish for Fathead. All was well until Padma came prancing back to the more twist! The cheftestants chose in reverse order and Blais had to cook one handed, Fathead could not use any utensils and Antonia had to cook Siamese twin style tied to recently booted chef Carla. Antonia came up w/ a curry coconut soup w/ canned shrimps & sausage, Blais made a Thai seasoned hot dog & Fathead had a braised pork shoulder and cabbage salad. All these dishes had issues but someone Fathead won. GRRR! No!

For the Elimination Challenge, they brought back another of my faves: cook a guest judges' last meal. As Fathead won the Quickfire, he got the privilege of assigning the guest judges to each of the cheftestants. Fathead chose Michelle Bernstein, Blais got Wolfgang Puck & Antonia was paired w/ IRON CHEF Morimoto (squee!). Poor Antonia, I'm sure you all can see where this is going. Blais won w/ his spin on Wolfgang Puck's favourite last meal of spaetzle and strudel. Hmm mmm! I love spaetzle! Wolff's Biergarten puts gravey on their spaetzle, so delicious! Fathead failed to make Michelle Bernstein's request of fried chicken crispy. And Antonia could bring it home w/ the miso soup, white rice & sushi at Morimoto's behest.

Aha! But there was yet another TWIST! The bottom two of Fathead & Antonia had to go head to head in making a single bite of food to determine who will get to the finale. Now here is where I had a problem w/ the show. If they were planning this the whole time, then they could served poop on plate for the Elimination. Anyways, going on to fight for the title of Top Chef was Fathead.

NOOOOO!!!! Sexist bullshit!

Mad Hamsters

Another late recap, my apologies. On w/ The Top Model!

And Alexandria has once again is alienating the rest of the hamsters in the house by being a complete and total asshat. Oh the drama! Oh the ratings!

For the challenge, the cheftestants had to walk in a runway show w/ flame retardant gloves on their hands because they had to hold FIRE. Hmm, sweaty hamsters! Sara was a hot mess (literally!), Hannah looked lost & Kasia kept making fish lips. Duking it out for 2 dresses from the runway collection were Alexandria, Brittani & Dalya but Dalya managed to inch ahead of the competition.

For the photo shoot, the hamsters had to act in a commercial for "Fierce Roast" coffee portraying s-e-x-x-y secretaries ala Christina Hendricks' character from "Mad Men". Sara started bitching and moaning about how participating in this challenge goes against her strident feminist beliefs. Um, hello? Yr on Top Model, the U.S.S. Betty Friedan left ages ago! One point of concession though, for some reason the hair and makeup folks did not give Sara a wig for the shoot. That seems unfair. Best "photo" of the week went to Kasia and her curvy hot ass. Love her! And yet again, Alexandria was being a diva bossy bitch on the set which landed her in the bottom two w/ Sara's wigless butt. Good bye Sara! You seem like you have some sense, go home and get an education.

More bitch faces, next week!

I've got the Conch

Sorry for the lateness of my Top Chef recap....I've been in a lazy funk.

For the Quickfire Challenge, the cheftestants were paired off in teams of two. Of course, the boys and girls were paired off w/ each other. Really sick of the sexism on this stupid show! Anyways, the teams had to make 50 dishes that looked and tasted exactly alike. The boys made pasta w/ pork Bolognese & the girls made a beef tenderloin over salad. And the girls won 50 g's! And of course Fathead was completely sour grapes about the whole thing.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to make an upscale dish for a private party that must include conch. Here's the kicker: they had to go diving in the ocean for their own conch. I would love love love to do that! It looked amazing. The shitty part was the cheftestants had to cook on open grills. Whomp whomp! And Fathead won w/ his banana leaf wrapped grouper w/ pineapple & conch vinaigrette. Say what?! How is grouper a conch? Shouldn't the conch been the start of the show? Blergh! And packing it up was Tiffany and her cold chowder.

Home stretch!

My So-Called Angst

As many of you know, I am obsessed w/ Netflix streaming. To my surprise and delight, all 19 episodes of this amazing series were available straight to me while I languish on my comfy couch. I even got SB hooked into it a bit. His major complaint was that Angela was upset w/ someone and also too many people wearing overalls.

Yes, Angela was emotionally over wrought teen but there was a complete and brutal honesty w/ the show. It was real. The characters wore the same clothes all the time and they weren't from some ridiculously expensive designer. They showed lower middle class as it really was & the school was dingy and over budgeted. My favourite part was the music. When was the last time you saw a teen queen loudly singing and dancing to "Blister in the Sun"? Is it possible that most high schoolers have not even heard of Violent Femmes? I don't want to know, the answer will terrify me.

The last time I was so excited by a show was "Freaks and Geeks". Again another powerful look into what life is really like, not that airbrushed idiotic problem of the week shit. Though I do have a soft spot in my heart for "The Facts of Life".

I'm dying for a show to come back and not give me a distorted view of high school.

"My parents keep asking how school was. It's like saying, 'How was that drive-by shooting?' You don't care how it *was*, you're lucky to get out alive."

Hair Raising

Top Model Time!

Make over time! Freaking love this part of the season! Unfortunately, they really didn't change much w/ the hamsters. Mostly just highlights and a few extensions. Brittani had my fave look for sho'! Dark Louise Brooks bob, I proclaim thee ADORABLE. Alexandria spent a long time bitching and moaning about how her weave was supposed to look. Diva bitch! And pretty little Molly got a jacked up weave, she was supposed to look like Lady Godvia and it looked more like over cooked spaghetti.

For the photo shoot, the hamsters were paired off into four groups of 2 and one group of 3 dressed in haute couture. It was really difficult to pick a dud out the pack. For serious, they all looked stunning. Bitchface Alexandria was crabbing and being a major pain in the ass. She claimed her lip was swollen and hurt. That bitch's lip didn't look any different to me. And somehow she ended up w/ best photo of the week.....w/ a warning about stank ass attitude. And packing it up was Dominique & her empty head.

Runway lessons next week!

It's Getting Hot in Here

It's Top Chef recap time!

Some time has passed since we last saw the cheftestants, Blais grew a douchy beard. He looks like a molting werewolf.

Anyways...for the Quickfire, the judges are assigned a protein and had to cook head to head w/ the chef that won their season. Which means Antonia & Blais had to double up w/ the lovely and talented Stephanie Izard. Love her! Oh my geezers, Hosea looked absolutely gorgeous!!! Surprisingly FatHead won against Mike Volt, SAY WHAT?, and won the Quickfire over Blais. I'm really scratching my head over that one.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to cook for Bahamanian royalty. And I thought to myself, "There's a king of the Bahamas? That doesn't sound right." Turns out, it was a figure of speech. It was just a dude that has been dubbed the King of Parties. Whilst, cooking away in the kitchen one of the fryalators caught on serious fire. This would have thrown off my game & such was the case w/ poor Antonia. Yes, all three gal cheftestants ended up on the chopping block. Pun intended. And Carla was sent home. I've never been a big fan of hers but, fuck, don't ever serve raw pork to anyone at any time. And winner was FatHead. Are you kidding me?! Blech...

Is it almost over yet?

It's Tuesday and I'm already wiped out!

The weekend was super packed w/ lots of goings ons. Friday night, I went to a Wine, Whine & Dine party. I only knew 2 people there including the hostess but that did not stop me from having a good time. And not a forced good time either, this was GEN-U-WINE. I came home at 2 am.

Saturday, I got my hair 9 am. Ugh! I felt like poopity poop but at least I looked fabulous. I unfortunately did not get a nap in before we went out again to our friends' home for "boiled" dinner. The corned beef was sooooo delicious, I think it was the cloves that did the trick. Another late night.

And yet, my old tired body did not want to sleep in. Grr!

Pi Day, or March 14th (3/14), happens to be SB and mine dating anniversary. That's right, bitches, we celebrate 2 anniversaries! We had kicked around the idea of going bowling before going out to eat. But something about going on a date to the bowling alley in the early evening on a Sunday seemed depressing. It's much more fun to go to 11pm Rock n' Bowl. Bring on the black lights, classic rock & cold Coors Light!

Anyway, we headed off to The Standard. I've great things about the food & service and it seemed like the perfect spot for a special occasion meal. We stared off w/ a Manhattan for him & a glass of Prosecco (sparkling white wine) for me. SB was highly annoyed that his drink was $10. Agreed! Since I'm trying to slim down for the wedding, I forewent the fried yummy apps for a pecan, endive & bleu cheese salad. It was great but there was sooooo much of it. I probably only ate 1/3 of it. I also a little taken aback when our server asked if I wanted the rest of the salad in a doggy bag. Uh....not so much, thanks. SB had shrimp lollipops in a panko & coconut crust. SB proclaimed it tasty, though he was worried about poking his eye out on a skewer. For my main, I had lamb chops, a baked potato & broccoli. Now, normally you can only have one side but I really wanted more veggies. I expected a charge for the extra food but $5.50 for broccoli!? Come on! SB wanted braised baby short ribs but they were all out :-( So, he settled on a black pepper crusted filet w/ garlic mashed potatoes. SB really likes his crust! I took dessert to go. I like the idea of snuggling up on the couch in my jammies w/ a sweet treat.

Chocolate cream tartlette, think about that while yr driving to work!

The Sunday Thief

Today we ripped off a blogger named Fridge from the blog Buzzing Fridge. Buzzing Fridge's last post was in 2010. He states he got it from Toast. Since we've got Toast's pick (Fridge never shared one) we thought that we'd post it. Toast has had a blog since 2003, but when he reinvents it, he deletes his archives. So we have no idea where Toast got it. It's 50 questions, so we will do it in three parts. Had we had found the old blog, we would known where Toast got it from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

The Return of the Thunk

1. Charlie Sheen is an idiot and will probably end up with his own stupid reality show that will get 40 million viewers the first day and then people will fall asleep and quit watching. What person, celebrity or not, would you watch every eppy of a reality show if they were the center of it all? Sutan Amrull from Rupaul's Drag Race & Top Model fame. Love him!

4. There is square bread, wheat bread, circle shaped bread, bread with nuts in it, funny named bread. When you open a bread bag, do you twist it when you are done or put the metal tie thingie back on? (And did you know that if you look at that metal tie thingie, it has a day of the week printed on it?) Twist, too lazy to do it the away and I always looks those plastic twisty things.

5. Some spoiled little brat (hey.. my opinion) called 911 on her teacher because he shook his own desk to get the students attention in the class. (I know, right?) Think back... what clever ways did a teacher of yours use to get the attention of the class or a particular student?

The Buzz

Top Model recap, bitches!

Alexandria is proving to be this series biggest bitch ever! Woo whee! She put raw chicken in a plastic bowl in the fridge w/ aluminum foil "protecting" it. Hey dummy, have you heard of salmonella? Dalya gave Alexandria a lecture on raw food prep and then Alexandria made some threats about making Dalya's Top Model stay a living hell. Sounds fair!

Therapy time! Haven't had that since cycle 2 when Camille got called out for being a big phony faker. Good times. Good times. The hamsters had to draw self-portraits of their inner critics and then confront them. Kind of hard to Jaclyn seriously w/ her baby talk voice. Then they all got jewelry. Um...OK?

For the photo shoot, the hamsters did beauty shots (tight close ups of their faces) wearing jewelry soaked in bee pheromone & then had live bees dumped on them. It looked kinda cool actually. I loved loved the make up, white faces and black/greenish/blueish lips. And as a precaution all the hamsters had nose and ear plugs in. Top Model is all about safety.

In a Top Model 1st, Ondrei withdrew from the competition because of unresolved grief from 2 brothers passing away before taping for the show. This has been the only time Tyra(nt) has approved of a drop out hamster. Best photo went to Hannah, I agree it was a great photo. She had GIGANTIC tears sliding down her bee coated neck. However, off the photo set, that stupid hamster constantly wear pony tails. Why has no one told her she looks like an idiot or a "lesbian" from a porno website. Alexandria, give us a hand! Packing it up was Nicole who photographed 35 at age 20. Yipes! Not good.

Next week: make overs!


I don't know about last week's Top Chef. The challenge seemed a bit sub par for the cheftestants' caliber.....except for Fathead Mike.

On w/ the recap!

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to make a dish w/in the time constraints of the Ellis Island Ferry crossing the Hudson. PLUS they could only use ingredients found in the ferry cantina. I'm sure you can imagine what was found; Cheetos, hot dogs, nacho cheese glue. Huh, Blais magically had an MRE kit in his chef bag....weird. Man, he's been working on my last nerve. At least he's a worthy competitor. Tiffany made nachos (not really stretching her imagination on this one!) & microwave popcorn w/ dried fruit (EW!) She totally got called out on a lack of creativity. Blais made a hot dog w/ A LOT of stuff on it, the judges liked his flavours. Fathead made a "soup" of nacho cheese and hot dog really he did. & it looked like red vomit. Needless to say, Fathead did not win. Antonia made grilled cheese on raisin bread w/ apples slices & because she used the hot dog grill, the sandwich had a whisper of porkiness. DANG!!! I should make that right now except for the hot dog juice. But Carla was the ultimate winner w/ her orange and papaya salad w/ carrot & rosemary salad. Blais was totally sour grapes about this! Pissing and moaning about Carla not cooking anything. True there was no heat involved, however, the judges went ape shit for her flavour layering. Plus the fruits and veg were fresh. So suck on that!

Upon landing at Ellis Island, the cheftestants were greeted by their families. AW! Slightly surprised that Antonia's little daughter was not present. MAJORLY surprised that Tiffany's fiancee was nowhere to be found. That clinches it, she's boning annoying Ed from her season.

Anyways, the cheftestants were each given a personalized dossier about their ancestry. Turns out Antonia and Fathead are half assed relations. Did anybody else think it was weird that the cheftestants' families were judging the food? Just me? Oh OK. Antonia and her braised veal and risotto. So much yum right now! And packing their knives was NOBODY. I saw this coming a mile away. Yes it was a non-elimination episode. And all the cheftestants are on their way to the semi-finals.

Frozen Meme

1) What keeps you up at night? Fear of failure, nuclear war, abuse of children and animals

2) What’s the last music you purchased? (online, on CD, whatever) I downloaded (for free!) "Not Music" by Stereolab. They are definitely an acquired taste. My top three fave bands.

3) Describe the house in which you grew up. My parents still live there, though they have made some great and amazing improvements. When I was younger my house was white w/ dark green trim. I had my own room w/ an ugly gold rug. My brothers shared a room, & as was the custom at the time, had a "mural" wallpaper of the "future". Yellow & orange linoleum tiled kitchen floor. Brown "colonial" family room w/ a splash of wood paneling.

Hung Over Meme

Today we ripped off a blogger named Fridge from the blog Buzzing Fridge. Buzzing Fridge's last post was in 2010. He states he got it from Toast. Since we've got Toast's pick (Fridge never shared one) we thought that we'd post it. Toast has had a blog since 2003, but when he reinvents it, he deletes his archives. So we have no idea where Toast got it. It's 50 questions, so we will do it in three parts. Had we had found the old blog, we would known where Toast got it from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

By the Way

I was checking out some of the message boards for "The Office", I find this show hysterically funny and brutally honest. I started noticing a bunch of whiny bastards complaining how un-funny the show has become, a mere shadow of its once former glory. & I thought "What the fuck? Why are you watching a show you hate? Is just so you can have cannon fodder on the boards?" Which led me into a discussion w/ SB & I came to a startling conclusion. It's useless having debates. People become so defensive by the oppositions statements that they become even more entrenched in their beliefs. I know this to be true, I've done it myself w/ anti-choice proponents.

And on a completely unrelated note, why the hell was Corey Haim left out of the "In Memoriam" portion of the Academy Awards? Hello, "First Born" "Murphy's Romance", "Lucas"? "Lucas" for Christ's Sake?! Morons!

Candid Camera

I happened to be slumming around on one of my fave sites, Television w/out Pity, & I saw that newest cycle of Top Model had started.

Yee haw! This winter is starting to look up!

Thankfully this time around, Tyra decided to do away w/ showing casting week. Great idea! Too ponderous and full of fake drama. Lots of cute dumb hamsters, some bland. A few freaky looking chicks. And a whole lot of bitchery!

First impressions: love Kasia, the "plus size model". I believe she's an 8 or a 10. Stunning, love it! And she seems like she has half a brain. However, she's 25 which is long in the tooth to break into modeling. As ageist as that sounds :-( Also like weirdo Sarah, she looks like an alien. However, she needs to cut that rat tail she sporting!

For the Challenge, meta met meta. The hamsters had to walk in an Alexander Wang run way show, on a 12 inch plank over water in a gigantic plastic (hamster) ball. I never laughed so hard as when 3, count 'em, 3 hamsters slid off the platform into the water. They all got critiqued but there was no winner and no prize.

For the photo shoot, the hamsters were photographed while getting their hair and make up done before the Wang show. Heh heh Wang. Meh. I hate this concept. I don't see how you can look yr best and think about being a hamster ball in front of tens of people. So are these truly candid shots or were the hamsters supposed to pose? Weirdness.

Best photo went to Molly, one of the many blonde hamsters. But I actually like her looks, very fresh and cute. Getting the boot was Angelia and her regular pretty but not model pretty photo. I called this earlier in the episode. During Angelia's talking head, she kept blathering on about what an amazing model she is.

Game on, bitches!


Top Chef recap time!

For the Quickfire Challenge, Paula Deen was in the kitchen w/ Padma. My first thought was, "Well it shouldn't be hard to impress Paula Deen. Just deep fry some butter & throw some gravy on it!" Heh heh. And essentially that was what the challenge called for, make a dish created in a deep fat fryer. Mike I, the fucking scumbag, stole his idea of a chicken "oyster" served on an oyster shell from Blais. And he tried to justify his reasons for his thievery! Ugh! Paula Deen remarked that she has the same hair style as Blais 1st thing in the morning....AWESOME SAUCE. Ha! Dale delivered a flavourless steak wrapped oyster & Carla's spit ball hush puppies were on the bottom. Poor Antonia, she totally would have won except she forgot to plate two dishes. So Blais' idea executed by Mike won. Needless to say he did not thank Blais after he won. Dick.

For the Elimination Challenge, the cheftestants had to pick a piece of seafood and a dish for a gala. I marvel at the task of making food for 250-ish people. That is something I could never do. In picking a seafood, the cheftestants have to take a booted cheftestant as well. Most of the cheftestants avoided the white shrimp because they were attached to Marcel. Mike I chose first and got Tiffani (YEAH) and brown shrimp. Mike as the winner of the Quickfire chose the order in which the cheftestants could pick their protein. Poor Tiffany got the shit end of the stick w/ Marcel. He was very bossy in the kitchen. I also noticed that Tiffani made most of the Mike I's dish, including the sauce that the judges kept praising. C'mon Mike! A little credit where credit is due. But thankfully Blais won. Revenge is a dish best served cold! And getting sent a-packin' was Dale. Wha-wha-what?! All right, I admit Dale's dish did suck monkeys' balls & he has a shitty personality but I think the judges want the ladies to stay in the competition longer. Tiffany has just been making absolute poop for several weeks now.

Final 5!
