That’s right it’s national “Talk Like A Pirate Day” again.
Are You Feeling Ramsey Tonight?
Tonight starts El Gordon’s new American series Kitchen Nightmares. Having seen a few season’s worth of “Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares” on the BBC I can vouch that this series will be fun to watch — in that “Oh my God this is such a train wreck” way.
If your only experience with Ramsey is his berating of contestants in Hell’s Kitchen and that didn’t satisfy you, then I say you give this series a shot. Ramsey is no saint mind you, but this series is rather different from Hell’s Kitchen.

I was hoping to post a shot taken in Gainesville, but haven’t had the opportunity to shoot anything yet. So here is an Atlanta institution.
I am glad that I am not staying there…
Even More Telly Talk
Dick won? Are you fucking kidding me? Evil Dick? Wow, I am so glad that I gave up on watching Big Brother.
But then how did I know? Because I was going on CBS’ website to check the start date of Survivor — China. The fifteenth (!) tv season of Survivor starts tomorrow night and I have not set up a dvr timer for it. Maybe this is a sign that I have given up on that franchise too.
I Guess It’s Nothing But A “Big Whoop” After All
When I checked in to my hotel last night I was able to use the “Elite Gold” status that I had attained by staying in this hotel chain so many nights this year. I have to admit that I was somewhat excited when I received the card in the mail. I rarely travel, or even buy enough stuff from the same vendor in a given year to make it to anyone’s “Preferred Customer” status.
What did that new status get me? Absolutely nothing. There was nothing handed to me at check-in, and my room is exactly the same as my co-worker’s.
What incentive will I have to stay in this chain when I travel next year? Absolutely None.
I’d Be Saying “Arrr” If I Really Cared
My New York Mets are on the brink of squandering a huge lead late in the baseball season. Since I put up the Magic Number counter the have gone from a 7.5 lead in the division to a 1.5 game lead. Well played boys!
Will I take the Magic Number counter down? Nah, I don’t believe in superstition.
Besides, I was an evacuee from the Mets World Series party bus when the got swept by the Phillies a few weeks back. Looks like I was a visionary on this topic.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay, but fearing that my sniffling has not completely gone away
Current Music – none
