Magic Chef! [sizzle sizzle] Season Finale Part 1: The Reaping

I don't know if it's because I've been watching Hell's Kitchen since the beginning, but Gordon is so much more likable on this show. And I mean really likable.

Cornish hen, scallops, fish... Fruit Loops. With milk. Chocolate milk. Boom!

Joe's mom has a cooking show on PBS.

There's a frog that lives somewhere around the well. He comes in sometimes after a rain to watch tv with us, in the garage. Moonpie is confounded by him. And I hope he doesn't come in tonight until after this segment. This is why I need to keep chickens.

Oh yeah, kale. I could live in kale. Not a typo, which is to say, e.g., I could cram it between them cabin studs for insulation. Kale rules! Can you smoke it?

Rigorous honesty: I've been on a cold fried chicken binge for the last 4 days. Where does it end?!?

I'm going to watch Michelle now because I don't think she looks like a real First Lady like Ann does. (I think she looks like a President.)

Hey here's Michelle. Better go check on Switters.

Cold fried chicken is one of those foods that might be better than the piping hot fresh version. Shrimp too.

Michael said...

Imagine going from a conference with Biden to a conversation with Michelle over dinner.

Rigorous honesty: Do my brothers hate Barry because Mom despised Rush and my Dad would've respected the hell out of Barry?

Michael said...

I have a hard time understanding anyone who hates Barack Obama. Even when I'm pissed at a policy, I know where his heart is. I don't know your brothers David, so I can't speculate, but whatever reason(s) they have for hating Obama, they're seeing something I'm not seeing. She hated Rush? God bless that woman.

Note to cameramen: every fifth crowd shot should not be a close up on someone who looks like hippie caveman Cher.

Michael said...

Some of these people look like they were drawn by Don Martin. Hell of a speech from Shelly. She's really very good.

David Marlow said...

Spin: Ann's speech was better, and I didn't even see Ann's speech.

Michael said...

Julie Weiner from Vanity Fair just tweeted: Michelle did the same thing for Barack that Ann did for Mitt. She just kicked her ass at it.

David Marlow said...

NPR dances around it artfully, but it's pretty simple: some people just don't approve of uppity blacks telling them what to do. It wasn't that long ago.

David Marlow said...

Open posit: anyone who says they are honestly not better off than they were four years ago is lying, short memory, retarded, spiteful, or both. Seriously.

Michael said...

You ever get into a discussion with someone who doesn't know your politics, and who tries to delicately find out how you feel about the nigger in the White House? Happens to me all the time. I love telling them that I voted for Obama, and then asking how they feel about GW Bush.

David Marlow said...

Rigorous honesty: Am I taking my frustration with my alcoholism out on my siblings?

Michael said...

You seemed pretty bummed out that they didn't appreciate the 365 day mark more than they did.

Michael said...

And that made me feel sad. I wanted you to be proud of yourself, not down because of family reaction. I'm sure your parents would have been very happy about it, and would have told you so. (okay, pretty sure although I didn't actually know your parents) It's a hell of a thing you've accomplished. If others don't want to acknowledge that, well that's out of your control isn't it?

David Marlow said...

Don't worry about it. My demons are no worse than anyone else's. I try to answer to my parents every day and be the sort of person they would respect and like. I miss them more than I'm comfortable admitting.

David Marlow said...

Ahh... I guess I'll watch ole Bill. And dance like no one's watching. The A Team is really crappy.

David Marlow said...

I'm beginning to think it was a good idea to have Bill speak tonight.

Michael said...

The man knows how to work a room like nobody I've ever seen. Tweets saying 90% of what he said was ad libbed. "He's going off script again!"
