Nightmare out, Reality TV in

You might be wondering where I have been. Well, I was traveling, and then I got home and I have been haunted these past few days by dreams and imaginations of bad, bad things. It hasn’t been a good week what with the worries and the cold sweats. I will not bore you with details… after all I have a reputation to protect.

BUT…. big news and that news is, a new season of Top Chef is starting June 6. I think the REAL season actually starts June 13, but there is some stand-off episode between the winners of seasons one and two on the 6th. (I think.)

At any rate the contestants of next season are up on bravotv.com and in the very near future I will give you my run-down on all of them. I didn’t do so good on my last season’s preshow predictions; I did, however, do quite excellently on my predictions after the first episode.

Of course, I did not predict how I would end up rooting for Marcel in the end. By the time that came around, the show was so boring I didn’t even write about it anymore. Let’s hope they handle it all a little better this time.

What with all the concerts coming up – Arcade Fire, Raveonettes and THEN Spoon (whoo hoo!) AND Interpol in the first ten days of June alone, it’s already looking like a crazy summer. So, it would be in my best interest to not think about identity theft or pole shift for a while. There are better things to obsess about.

    OH! Excellent news about a new season of Top Chef! I have to be in Dallas for work the week of June 4, though, and will be royally annoyed if I miss the June 6 chef off.
    What are Harold and Ilan doing these days, anyway?

    hey shannon,

    your nephew is so cute! thanks so much for the kind words on my blog, you are sweet. i know what you mean about staying up at night thinking about stuff n’ things…i have been waking up at 5:30 every morning worrying about this island being swallowed up by water due to global warming, about quality of schools in the u.s. when we return, about w. and what he will think up next….especially here, i have lots of american guilt about lots of issues. good for you that you are balancing out the cold, hard reality of the world with travel, friendship, family, music, writing, great food and wine.

    missing you,

    Shannon – on the TV front, some other good news, No Reservations is having a marathon on May 21 starting at 3pm (EDT – I think) and it looks like season 4 is starting sometime this summer though I can’t find a date yet.

    Thanks for the heads up on Top Chef.
