Man, this week is just not my week:
- every time I think my cold is finally retreating, I've been fooled;
- the psoriasis on my arm flared up again and I couldn't find Second Skin products at our local Wal-Mart; and
- Vogon is cranky about the "check engine" light coming back on in his car yesterday before he was going to take it over for a new inspection sticker and it seems to be pouring over into everything here.

On the bright side, I've fixed a bunch of formerly dead-end pages for Sesame Street videos at MuppetWiki (hooray!), will be creating a page for composer Stephen Lawrence today, and I'm about to go sit with a form I made to take notes on the Elmo's World format to flesh out the page for whatever episode shows today, providing it's not one that's been written up (most haven't). If I can finagle a working VCR somewhere, I've got a bunch more on tape I can summarize and screencap.

Also good, and of interest to my foodie readers: an interview with Anthony Bourdain in the latest issue of Bookslut.

edit 1220: Score! "Sky" was an episode I hadn't summarized yet, the form I made worked well for writing on while watching the TV, and someone already uploaded a screencap from the episode. (I'll probably still add Elmo's World: Reach For The Sky to my NetFlix queue so I can screencap the Elmo Variants, though.)

I'd never heard of him before Kitchen Confidential came out; now, I drool whenever I catch an episode of A Cook's Tour.

I am so grateful for all my LiveJournal friends that post about food. You really sold me on the Moosewood cookbooks, I no longer even remember who encouraged us to subscribe to Cook's Illustrated, and I got my copy of Kitchen Confidential second-hand from another friend that was scaling back their books before a move.

Indeed. It's especially weird to have a cold when it hasn't been cold outside here in months!

Wow, you always seem to keep busy.:)

Hey you never said why you un-friended me, did I offend you in some way?

Anthony Bourdain is giving a speech in the San Francisco Sur la Table store in SF on Sunday. I might go. Jealous?

You should go. Everyone I know that's seen him in person loved it.

I've never been in a Sur La Table, although I know there's a store in the area since they locally sponsor cooking shows on PBS. I rarely miss an episode of America's Test Kitchen. I'd like to go see Christopher Kimball the next time he does a book tour and see if he's as wonderfully geeky in real life as he comes across in Cook's Illustrated and on ATK.

I will go see him if my schedule allows it (I think it will).

You should go. Sur la Table is wonderful. I've never seen ATK, but I have a Cooks Illustrated book, The Best Recipe. It's good.
