Top Chef live blogging fail.

Karina didn't let me twitter the episode.  she's mean.  but the above photo should give you an idea of who I think will win TOP CHEF this season.

I have been harboring doubt about plastic bottles and containers for a good while now.  I didn't really know if they were to be avoided, but I could not get away from the feeling that they should be avoided.  

Today I read a review of a University of Rochester Study that at the very least casts plastic, or more specifically Bisphenol-A, a chemical used in plastic hardening in a disparaging light.  

It turns out that the chemical stays in our bodies far longer then first imagined.  BPA in the body is not decisively understood, but there is some association with higher levels of heart disease and diabetes, as well as birth defects.  The Rochester study has shown that either a) we are ingesting BPA from other sources, such as air or water, and/or b) there is BPA in our food (plastic containers being the source).  

On this one, I would err on the side of caution.  It may be time to switch to ceramic water jugs people.


I have been out of it for the past week.  Had papers to write and some other shit.  I will be back tonight for top chef, and at the suggestion of a friend, I have decided to twitter it.  So tune in and watch the side bar for my almost completely useless commentary on tonight's episode...

Karina was saying last week that I am too snarky about the show.  So tonight I am going to make an attempt to be nice and complimentary.  I will submit myself to the food porn and get off happily.  

doesn't that get you excited?

for me...tune in next week!  


wrong choice.

I call Leah

i hope, Jaime is cute.

Is this the top 3?

Fabio has to keep his shit together.  but if Jaime survives...

the minutes in between.

I hate commercials.  Although seeing Tyra go into a conniption is priceless.


jaime better get it right, then josea goes home.

european boys are both safe.


not so much.



Spoilers for nobody

Lucky Bastards

Le Bernardin...i don't think I will ever be able to afford that joint.

Just look at the menu...or go eat there, for $135/person.  ($220 with pairing)

Karina is gagging

she stopped watching the fish guts get peeled.

but i love sardines.

goodbye douche

So Jeff got the BOOT. Happy day. Here comes the new one.
