Okay, I know it could have happened to anyone (myself included since I speak no Polish), but this story really made me ROFL! "Details of how police in the Irish Republic finally caught up with the country's most reckless driver have emerged." ;D

In other news, I am fairly pleased with the Top Chef Final Three,Read more... )

In other news, I'm taking my mom in for her surgery (spinal/disc fusion) in a couple of hours. I've got all y'all's vibes stored up for use today, so I know it will go well.

Found an excellent new-to-us Thai place in town, they make the best drunken noodles I've ever had, and their spring rolls were so amazingly fresh they practically exploded flavor in my mouth when I took a bite. And their dipping sauce didn't taste like watered down peanut butter, either. To top it off, their mango sticky rice was fabulous. Must learn how to make it their way. Mmmmmm. It's also reasonably priced. The location's a bit eh... it's in a stripmall across from 29th Street, but the food's definitely worth it. (If you're local and want to try it, it's Chy Thai.)

Watched the new Top Chef. There are two chefs from Boulder in it this season, Hosea (bald/Amish beard) who did pretty well in the first ep, and Melissa (blonde, bad haircut) who didn't fare as well but is still in the running. It'll be fun to watch and see how the locals fare. There's also a guy named Jeff from Miami who's a dead ringer for Jesse Spencer (Chase from House). The resemblance is amazing, more so on the show than in the still photo. I can already tell I am not going to be liking either of the two European guys. There's ego, and then there's ego.

I've always liked Tom Colicchio on Top Chef- he has always seemed down to earth and intelligent. And after reading his finale blog for this season, "A Woman's Place" I'm even more impressed. Here's a quote from the blog entry: The bottom line is our society does not yet provide women in the workplace with the type of social supports, like high-quality subsidized child care or extended parental leave, that allows them to fully go for it, and the impact this has on the scope and depth of a career is profound.

Yes, it is. Still. Despite the idiot commenter 'Rob' who said Are we still in the Sixties???? Please, please, please, give this womens movement thing a rest.

Yeah, 'Rob', I'm still a feminist. And not ashamed to say so. And the Sixties aren't that far away.

So the list of Emmy nominations is out, and there were a few I was pleased to see. For instance:

Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series
Masi Oka (Yatta!) for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series
Heroes and House were both nominated for Outstanding Drama Series
Deadliest Catch was nominated for Outstanding Nonfiction Series
Project Runway and Top Chef were both nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program
Eureka, Heroes, and Rome were all nominated for Outstanding Special Visual Effects For A Series

Also, Deadliest Catch, Project Runway, Rome, The Lost Room were all nominated for several technical awards as well.

I was not so thrilled to see David Morse (as Michael Tritter on House) nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series. Though I suppose it's a credit to his acting that I found his character to be so spectacularly annoying that I hated that arc with a passion beyond expression.
