Even though I fell asleep before it was over, last night’s episode of No Reservations in Romania was possibly one of my favorites. I think it was mostly due to Zamir – he seems to get funnier with each episode he’s been in. Trying to work the phrase “no reservations” into everything he said, drunkenly singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” into a string of sausages… It was great. Even the parental warning where the letter O got impaled cracked me up. (I mean, the parental warning almost needed a warning of its own, it was so bloody!) Also, Tony mentioning that he’d given up smoking – is that the first time he’s outright said so? It actually surprises me a little that a chef and food-lover like him ever smoked in the first place, considering what it does to your sense of taste. Anyway, I totally need to catch a repeat of that so I can see what I missed. I don’t remember laughing that much at an episode of NR.
Speaking of TV chefs, this is pretty exciting: Martin Yan (of “Yan Can Cook”), is going to be at my office on March 13 to sign copies of his book! I watched his show on PBS when I was very little, I remember it well, as does GG. So I am excited to even be able to meet the guy!
I stopped by the T-Mobile store yesterday and took a look at the Samsung t819 – the first time I’d seen it in person. I think I’m going to upgrade to that one (finally!). It got kind of bad reviews when it came out several weeks ago, but it’s not that it’s a bad phone, I think the reviewers were just expecting something more from Samsung at this point, but it’s actually very similar to their existing phones. I mentioned to the saleswoman that I was interested in this one because it’s 3G capable and she said yes, but they don’t have 3G yet, and I said I knew, but that I heard it was coming this year. Then she said, “In June, but don’t tell anyone I told you.” Whoops!
