I have only one burning desire, let me stand next to your fire

Tonight I shook the hand of one Mr. Gordon Ramsay. Yes, my Celebrity Chef stalking continues. Nanette, Jodi and I were out in the 90210 tonight. It was like a Brenda/Kelly/Donna reunion. (Not at all and if you're under 30 you won't even get that reference so let's move on.)

The Paley Center for Media, (MTR to me) was having a panel tonight showcasing Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares. Basically a Gordon Ramsay lovefest. I have been a big fan of his BBC Kitchen Nightmares since the beginning, so it was HUGE for me to get to hear him speak. Believe it or not, he was not an asshole. He was kind, funny and extremely charming. The man has a passion for food and it shows.
While there were many - my favorite anecdote of the night was when someone asked what his best meal in Los Angeles was. He said he loved AOC, Sona, Cut and hasn't had a bad meal in L.A. yet. His favorite though? In and Out Burgers. He said, 'you have to get it animal style, and by that I don't mean take you from behind.' Nice.

It was a great night out with the girls, yet I am convinced that now people are just inviting me out so that they have something to post for NaBloPoMo. After November 30th, I think I will be begging for dates.

Here's video of a much calmer Gordon Ramsay than we are used to, making the Perfect Scrambled Egg.

I purposely didn't post about this because I knew you and Nanners would! I'll go out with you in the other 11 months too.

Hey Hey Hey. I'm 28 and I fully get the 90210 reference. Let's not besmirch the cultural (does that show count as cultural!?) intelligence of Gen Y, mmmkay? ;)

PS. Which one are you???!?

I too must chime in to say that 90210 references apply to people under 30. Sounds like a fun time.

I too am a celebrity chef stalker I must admit. Meeting Gordon Ramsay must have been fantastic! I just want to hear him curse in person.

I agree with Jesser. I'm a month short of 29 and I want the box set of 90210. I was that into it.
