WTF...New Top Chef

Are you freakin' kidding me? Like, seriously?!?!?! Come f*n on! Really?!?!?

I'm still astounded, dumbfounded and what have you that Hosea won Top Chef. I don't think I'm alone in thinking that he shouldn't have been part of the final three and winning? Come f*n on!!!!!

Ugh, I was so disgusted that I actually deleted my recording before it was even over. Hosea? Seriously? Whatever...

And Carla, WTH were you thinking listening to Casey? She blanked out on her own final episode and you're gonna listen to her? OMG. Worst finale ever.

I'm so handy...

LOL. Not to toot my own horn but I do love that fact that I'm pretty good at putting things together. I think it's coz I love puzzles so much that putting together furniture almost feels like a giant 3D puzzle to me. Anyway, most of you know that I recently bought a new TV and TV stand. Since I live by myself, it was extremely hard for me to figure out what to do with my existing TV and entertainment center. I didn't want to throw them out so I contacted a person from my past. He gladly took the TV off my hands but he couldn't take the entertainment center.

So for about a week, I was stuck with my empty entertainment center which stood right next to my new tv stand. Why didn't I just sell it? Well, it's extremely old and scratched. It was still sturdy but I guess I was just too lazy to go through the motions of actually having to sell it. Too many emails and phone calls to answer. Not for me.

The entertainment center is extremely heavy and I had no one to help me take it to the dumpster so Arash suggested that I take it apart. So, one night (I think it was Wednesday night), I took out my tools and went at it. It must've taken me a little over an hour to take the whole thing apart. Like I said, it's extremely old so taking some of the screws out was almost impossible. I actually had to break some of the pieces off because the screws were too stubborn. So for my effort, this is what I have to show for. Pretty cool... LOL.

I love reading my horoscope or reading about my sign. Here's another one:

How accurate is it?

Le Bernardin + Top Chef = HEAVEN!

As I watched Top Chef last night, I almost fell out my seat when I heard that they were going to Le Bernardin.

I don't recall if I've ever mentioned it on this blog but Le Bernardin is on my list of "Restaurants to Try Before I Die". I'm a fan of Eric Ripert and would LOVE to try his restaurant the next time I'm in New York. I have actually contemplated flying out to NYC for a culinary tour but no one wants to come with (plus it's extremely expensive). Reservations have to be made a couple months in advance (like most top restaurants) but I think I can definitely swing that since I have to plan the trip anyhow. Anyone interested?

Anyway, on Top Chef last night, the chefs were invited for a lunch at Le Bernardin. As soon as those words were uttered, I immediately knew they had to recreate the dishes that they just ate. The chefs were enjoying a seemingly "day off" from competing that when they were told the challenge, most of them were not too happy (they weren't paying that much attention to the dishes). Jamie commented that she wasn't too excited about the dishes and even called the "boring" (THE NERVE!!!). I think she got her comeuppance when she picked her least favorite dish to recreate and eventually got the boot.

On another note, I LOVE Eric Ripert. He just seems so nice and humble and I just want to hug him and pinch his cheeks.
