Alinea at Home Special Edition: I be illin'...
Y'all, I feel like a Tyrannosaurus Rex tore open my head, dropped a deuce into my sinuses, then stomped on my chest on his way back to terrorize Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill. It hurts to look my laptop screen for any length of time, so I'll get the promised post on the Tuna, candied and dried, up in a few days.
Meantime, let me share with you a few links for your reading enjoyment:
Carol's Top Ten Guilty Pleasure Blogs. Joining the ranks of Craig Newmark and Marc Andreessen, I was honored when the good folks at Six Apart asked me for my ten favorite blogs for their Top Ten column on Blogs.com. It was too hard to narrow it down to just ten favorites, so I focused the list on my guilty pleasures -- and yes, I DO love the meteorologists' blog posts on the Weather Channel web site. I just wish we heard more from my Weather Channel boyfriend, Jim Cantore. Sigh....
Is there really an Alinea movie in the works? No clue if this is really happening, but for fun, go ahead and make your casting recommendations here in the comments. I think Matthew Modine could play TK, Edward Norton is a shoo-in for Chef Achatz, and I think Lauren Graham or Leighton Meester should play me... because you know I'm going to have to find a way be written into the script as the-spunky-ingenue-who ever-so-slightly-channels-Gladys-Kravitz. Or, feel free to suggest ideas for awesome plot twists (Achatz as Bond! Achatz opens a day care with Ben Affleck, hilarity ensues!) or celebrity cameos (Don Rickles sous vides Jack Klugman). I don't know. Clearly, I am sick and my funny bone is suffering.
And, it's not online, but a special thanks to Claire Tansey and her editors at Canadian House & Home for including Alinea At Home in their January 2009 trends issue. It's a beautiful magazine, and I'm beyond thrilled to be included. As thanks, I will no longer refer to Canada as "America's Hat." You're welcome.
Be back soon..
