Tropical Storm Isaac, MasterChef reverse-racism, and my most recent brushes with fame

I thought this was appropriate since TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY and all.

My PayPal address is if you want to send me a great big cash gift.

Thanks in advance.


A couple of cool things happened last week.


If you watch the show, "MasterChef" in the United States then you know that the judges panel is made up of Gordon Ramsey, Graham Elliot and some guy named Joe who is just generally mean to people and bites his fork.

Regardless, during one of the challenges, Graham presented three dishes that he serves in his own restaurant and asked a contestant to recreate one of them in the kitchen. This is how he introduced the dishes:

"This dish was eaten by Oprah Winfrey."

"This dish was ordered by Jay-Z."

"THIS dish..was eaten by President Barack Obama."

..and then a light bulb went off in my head in which I promptly Tweeted this:

Then...just a short time later...

I received THIS email from Twitter:

Yes. Graham Elliot retweeted it to his 39k followers and then I died.


Tropical Storm Isaac was in the news all last week, so one morning I Tweeted this to my man-crush Boston Fox 25 Morning News Anchor Gene Lavanchy because they were talking about postponing the Republican National Convention. I also included his co-anchor, Shannon Mulaire, because she's smoking hot:

Then Gene told me via Twitter to 'watch "Mail Call" this morning' which is when they read their viewer input and...



It looked even better on the big screen, people. True story.

Now if someone would just pay me to do this stuff full-time, I'd be all set.


Besides my employer, I mean.

I should probably do some work.

Moog out.

Happy Birthday! I can say I almost knew you when...

Well, look at you! I am SHOCKED that Oprah hasn't tweeted you.

That's funny; I watched that episode of Master Chef and it didn't even occur to me how racist Graham was. Thanks for calling it to my attention. Saves me the embarrassment of being turned away at the door.

Happy birthday. I'd send cash but I haven't even bought my son a birthday gift yet and his birthday was in June.

I'll buy YOU a gift if you'll take my birthday paddling! FORTY swats, uh, um, I mean 28!

Also, my 4 year old DAUGHTER insisted on a Superman lunchbox for preschool. The side of it says "Man of Steel." And yet I think of YOU every morning.

Now about those swats...

You're hittin' the big time. Please remember us little deviants at rock bottom on your way to the top.

Happy Birthday!

I'd Paypal you money, but is it possible for Paypal to bounce a deposit? Probably.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes!

Except yours, mommakiss. The finger thing was just weird. Hot, but weird.

And yes, Mad Woman, I would GLADLY take your spankings. 40 is 4 less than the ones I'LL be getting.

Very cool about the Graham Elliot retweet. Great line. I saw that episode when they had to recreate his dish!

Happy Birthday! said...

Almost Famous? Definitely famous!

I love when stuff like that happens. It makes me think that maybe my mom was right... I am funny. That and it's nice to know that people have a sense of humor. And by 'sense of humor' I mean the same warped sense of awesomeness we seem to share. Priceless!

Happy Birthday! From now on I shall say "I knew him when..."
