    The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    Fatima wrote another essay for Bon Appetit magazine that is in their upcoming by March issue - they decided to publish it early online: link.

    The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    This is horribly sad. She seemed very sweet and funny and her food was the one that made me drool the most during that season. The quote that I best remember is that whole exchange with Bruce.

    The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    Pakistani media/Twitter is saying that Chef Fatima Ali passed away from cancer today. She was 29, freakin' heartbreaking.

    S05.E11: Waltz in A Minor

    Was Junior's leather jacket and sitting backwards in a chair thing supposed to be a homage to Michelle Pfeiffer in Dangerous Minds? Because heh.

    S01.E07: Hold the Salt

    I thought Becky meant that Darlene had slept with only two guys before sleeping with Ben - like, of course you're not experienced with how this newly sexual relationship should go, you've only been with two guys before it. I've already deleted it from the DVR so I can't double-check, but I remember thinking that's how it was meant because it struck me as weird until I understood.

    S01.E06: One Flew Over the Conners' Nest

    Funniest moment for me was the reactions of Darlene, Jackie, and Geena to Mark manipulating Dan into giving permission for the chicken coop. They all looked so impressed as they clapped/snapped their fingers.

    S06.E08: Flesh Wounds Are Not Five-Star

    Is it that shot in the blue shirt, where he's talking to the rest of the crew? Because that was what he was wearing at the end of this episode. Tips are given out equally, but Kate gets the bigger salary as the Chief Stew (completely separate from Bravo - just her yachty salary) and a larger amount of money from Bravo since she's been on the show since almost the very beginning.

    S05.E05: Good Grief

    Pops is the best. I loved him yanking that tiki torch out of the white guy's hand and telling him that "this is over for you people." Jack thinking that the gift of teeth Diane got him was cool ("They're still warm!") shows that she's not the only twisted twin.

    I think Chandler is gone (and not just demoted) because of two things in the previews - what he says when you see him combined with Ashton being so happy that he had to follow Kate's orders really endeared him to me. That and whistling while washing the dishes. I don't know what the hell Caroline was rambling about when he said that the laundry he was folding looked like it needed to be ironed - I mean, I understood what she was actually saying but I didn't understand how it was in any way a response to what Ashton was saying.

    S11. E11. In Deep Waters

    I think that was in his past, not this year. He posted a message on Instagram after the suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade in June which talked about how he has been there but managed to find a way out with a lot of help. Going by his other Instagram posts, those deaths happened around the same time they were filming this and perhaps that combined with remembering the recent deaths of his two friends (Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington) led him to be more sober than usual. He seems to keep himself busy, so that's good.

    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    HAH! That made me cackle - I'm picturing Charles in his fancy clothes coming around looking like Leslie Nielsen as Dracula.

    S05.E04: Purple Rain

    Diane gave my two favorite lines, the purple one and the way she said "This feels right to you?" to Pops when he showed her the photo of naked Prince with flowers.

    S06.E07: New Kids on the Dock

    This is cute! Captain Lee angrily answering Kate's meal question with "I'm going to eat somebody's ass for dinner," and her "Ooohhh" response made me giggle. ETA: Heh.

    S01.E04: The Separation of Church and Dan

    I cackled when Jackie explained why she went to church: "I take my mother to services every Sunday just to remind God she's still here in case He forgot to take her."

    S11. E10. Put up or Shut up

    Yeah, my favorite part of the whole episode was Cleen and Christian complaining to each other about their own team members - I think Christian's guy started tattooing immediately with no feedback and Cleen's chose to do a style in which he wasn't completely comfortable. C & C sounded like parents complaining about their kids. As the episodes go on, you see the coaches ease up more on that ENEMIES! GRUDGE! thing.
