I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

The Food and Wine Festival was great.

Martha Stewart actually seems like lots less of a condescending bitch in person. Still a bitch, but slightly more accessible.

Paula Deen is as lovely in person as on T.V. Bobby Deen = Skinnier. Paula's new husband = just as "why is he on T.V." as ever.

George Duran = cute n' cuddly. He was astonished at my knowledge of the make-up of Cuban Sandwiches. I told him it was because I was Cuban by association.

Giada = Sweet, drew a huge crowd, head less enormous in person. Didn't stay long because we were in the sun, and I had to start drinkin', and we couldn't see.

I tapped the Kitchen Impossible guy on the shoulder and told him I liked his show. He seems like sort of an ass. He didn't get any shows anywhere, he was just meandering around.

Michael Chiarello was drunk the whole time and only had one bodyguard.

Dave Lieberman = Absolutely adorable. Terribly sunburnt. Said "fuck" a lot, and called everyone in Miami "skanks." And seems like an enormous cocky ass, and not the sweet dweeb he plays on T.V. It may be over between us.

Beyond that, I have one of those rare "two-day hangovers" which totally sucks, and I want to die.

Off to work!

That sounds like a grand time. Wish I'd been there. Paula Deens husband's probably alot like SD, great one on one, doesn't do crowds, and comes off like a hickory stump on camera. George Duran seems like he'd be alot of fun, it's nice to know he's not a prick in person.
For the hangover? drink lotsa water and green tea, gets those toxins out.

I must have missed you in the crowd of like, a million people. It seems like there were a lot more people at the tasting this year, especially in the tents. I feel like we've been eating non-stop since the BubbleQ on Friday night, though.....it's seriously like a marathon that you need to train for. I did let Romero Britto cut me in the brunch buffet line on Sunday morning...that was kind of cool.

Oh hilarious about Michael Chiraello (sp) I do not doubt it. His show always has a new drink on it... and Paula Deen is awesome.

Sounds like a wonderful time.. Hope your hangover goes away!
