- That Michael hit Merideth with his car.
- That Merideth got to be in this episode so much.
- That Dwight put Blonde Lady's cat, Sprinkles, in the freezer
- That Jan has totally flipped her wig.
- We get to see more of Creed.
- We get to see more Merideth, because I love her.
I like the Ryan is a total douche now, but I don't like how the writers have associated that with his reading of "Ann Rand" in the online clip of what he did over the summer.
I'm also not sold on the new tech guy they introduced.
But we'll see.

Cute girl is awesome. I love her so much and her food looks DELICIOUS.
I think they're the top two.
Soul Patch is pretty good, but next to invisible in this show. What the hell is that neon green cow pie he made? I kind of want to taste it, though.
Greasy Girl, you're killing me. You were a favorite of mine for a while and now it's like you're not even showing up. Undercooking, underspiced chicken? Are you kidding me?
Mohawk, sorry. You kind of suck. I halfway want to root for you, but you're coming off as too inexperienced, too flighty, too silly to win this.
My prediction for the final three: Hung, Cute Girl, Soul Patch. Greasy Girl, you're getting cut tonight. Mohawk, you're next.
Let's watch, shall we?
Update: No surprise that Hung won. His dish was the best from concept to execution. I love Cute Girl and I love coq au vin, but I suspect that it's not edgy enough to really impress unless executed to perfection.
I was right about Greasy Girl. She's out. Mohawk, you only BARELY made it to the finale. You're still going to lose.
Ok. I need to rant about Mohawk's duet for a second. Why would you use the same puree in both dishes unless it is a theme? Even with the sauce he forgot to put on, the concept of a duet in my mind requires carefully balance counterpoints. I don't even know where he was going with that.
See you next week, Tom Colicchio! Smooches!

I love it!
I wish I could taste these dishes, though.
Notable items I saw in my scan of the post:
- the iPod Touch - it's an iPhone without a phone and a little more memory. It's too little memory for an iPod, if you ask me, but whatever.
- the iPhone is $200 cheaper. WOO! This definitely makes the iPhone case stronger. I was coveting the new Q this weekend, but now the price points are closer. ARG!
- iPod Nano with Video and such. It's tiny and it's cool.

I flew back from Miami yesterday morning and then Mister Bookworm took me to a surprise dinner last night. We went to this French-Spanish restaurant here in Astoria; it was delicious. I thought I was going to burst after it was over.
My trip to Miami was awesome. Pharoah and the Boob Doctor were awesome hosts. One of their neighbors even let us use his apartment for our visit, so it was like Mister Bookworm and I had our own place for the duration.
We went to the beach and the pool. I got a little bit of sun, but not much because I put on sunscreen with the SPF 30. I need that because otherwise I do an incredible painful, though amusing, impression of bacon. We went to Villa Viscaya and we also drank lots of mojitos.
While I was gone, I finished my Pink Carnation book and Robert Mayhew's Ayn Rand & the Song of Russia. I'll discuss both in a little bit.
ALSO while I was gone I got a call from a headhunter that was really exciting. I know, it's just a headhunter and I have a lot more work to do in order to find a new job, but it was pretty cool and it reminded me how badly I really do want to find a new job.
So, I'm back home now, but I took the day off, you know, to relax. Since I'm 30 now, I guess I'll nap and .
