Well, last night was quite an evening….I started at 8:00PM insisting we watch the 2 hour special of Kitchen Nightmares. I love Gordon Ramsey and make no apologies for saying so! I watch Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef and Kitchen Nightmares. Last night my husband watched it with me and whether he did so out of love or reluctance to get up off the couch is up for debate. Actually he wanted to see this episode because we had seen the original show of Amy’s Bakery and we, like apparently hundreds of other watchers were both fascinated and appalled by the goings on in Scottsdale! If you didn’t see the show and are at all curious I understand that YouTube has many clips. Amy and her husband George (aka The Gangster) run a restaurant and while they are at it, they run a lot of their customers out of the dining room and run all of their wait staff out the door! This morning, Peter wanted to discuss just how fascinating a personality Amy is and I sort of dismissed her by remarking “I don’t find narcissism and neurotic behavior all that fascinating”. Probably the rigid Germanic side of my ancestry!
Anyway this blog was not intended to go on and on about that show but seriously I could….Which makes those two characters and Gordon Ramsey interesting and fascinating after all!
Next I checked out my DVR to find what else I may have recorded for my own personal viewing; I say that because Peter hates to watch commercial TV and usually only watched movies (the black and white kind of course) so I tape many of the “dumb” shows I want to see and I watch them way into the wee hours of the night. I told him I was going to watch The Millionaire Matchmaker which I thought would surely drive him into the bedroom but no, he stayed. This particular episode was about this shallow, disgusting and fat (yes I said fat) NY publicist and I figured if he was going to watch one of these shows, he would find this one interesting. NOTE: the word interesting doesn’t alway connote something clever or good. She was so disgusting I refuse to give her any more verbiage in my blog!
I think Peter left the room after that because I announced I was going to watch Grey’s Anatomy. I knew he would scoot out of the den before that was on. He hates doctor/hospital shows and this one is a soap too. I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy since its beginning but wonder if it is readying itself for a swan song ending. I read somewhere that Sandra Oh is leaving and now it looks like Karev will be off making some real money in private practice! Peter just loves it when I talk about these characters as if they were real people lol.
I’ve been under A LOT OF STRESS lately and sitting alone on the couch last night, remote firmly in my hand was lovely! After my Grey’s fix, I watched the last Hell’s Kitchen episode that I missed this week. Yes, it was time for Mike to go. Nobody on the blue team liked him and they would never let him help out so he always ended up looking inept.
It was now about 1:00 AM and too late to watch the scary episode of CSI since even the commercials warned you to be prepared. I couldn’t watch anything that might involve cannibalism and then go to bed. Luckily for me, The Millionaire Matchmaker is running re-runs as well as new episodes and they seem to be back to back. I stayed up until 2:00 AM watching more mindless matchmaking. Well, let me say that Patti isn’t doing her job mindlessly lol, it’s me watching her show mindlessly.
And that’s how it took me 6 hours to unwind from a week of terrible stress. None of the issues and problems that are causing the stress are resolved but by 2 AM, I couldn’t care less!
