My Newest Addiction

I have a new addiction. His name is Gordon Ramsey. I started watching him on Hell's Kitchen a few seasons ago, and I loved him! Have any of you seen that show? It's a great one from FOX that hasn't been cancelled. Also did you know this amazing British chef is on BBC America ALL THE TIME?? I catch him on The F Word and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Love those shows and with a DVR now, why should I miss them? :-) If you aren't catching these shows, I totally recommend them. Not only is he an amazing chef, but he's really knowledgeable about food and restaurants.

Speaking of BBC America, there's a lot of great shows on there! If I'm not careful I'm going to take on a British accent. I randomly found the Graham Norton Show and the Graham Norton Effect. Graham Norton is this flamboyant British man who is absolutely hilarious. The celebrities he brings on his shows are typically people I really enjoy like Paul Rudd and Alan Cumming.

Having a DVR has changed my life... some might argue in a bad way. I no longer watch commercials. I can watch all my favorite shows whenever I want. I can record movies and save them for later. No more losing shows when the power goes out because the VCR reset, and no more having to choose what to record because the VCR is so limited! Why I didn't do this sooner I have no idea! It's making my Spring Break quite entertaining. :-)

Speaking of Spring Break -- I'm going to Shreveport for a mini-vacation on Wednesday afternoon and coming back on Thursday afternoon. Other than that I don't really have firm plans. I'm sure I'll spend time with my niece and nephew during daylight hours when they're awake and not worn out from the day. Mostly I'm going to take a much needed break from all things school. I don't want to even think about school and the kids this week. I need some time to breathe again. The Math TAKS is May 1st this year, and then I can really breathe... we're really in that "push" time right now that's a little stressful, but honestly my year hasn't been nearly as stressful as the past two years, and so I'm not complaining. :-) I've been blessed this year.

    Oh, and he's a total hottie, even if he's old!! British accents are hot!!!

  2. Oh stink, did I forget to mention that? :-)

  3. Love my DVR! It has as much impact on watching sport as does HDTV - which can you imagine how cool Gordan Ramsey would be in HD???

  4. My son is enraptured with this show, and I don't get it. I find him cruel, random, bitter, unhelpful, and deeply rude. I wouldn't last five minutes on this show.

    Human beings don't deserve to be treated this way.
