hell's kitch

Can I just take a moment to confess my love for Hell's Kitchen? Okay, I love Gordon Ramsay in general but Hell's Kitchen is just the perfect amount of terrible reality television format that I need in my life. For real, I don't watch reality TV other than the occasional TLC show when absolutely nothing else is on. But every summer I get excited for Hell's Kitchen.

Ugh, I don't even know. This season's finale is on this week and it's been pretty obvious who's going to win since it started. But I still don't want it to end! I've learned a lot about cooking this summer and it's given me and my parents some new things to try and make. Maybe one day I'll be able to compete... JUST KIDDING, I'm too Canadian.

So... that's pretty much all I have to say. My money's on Will to win this season. GO WILL!

happy anniversary!

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Widows on the Dock! I know, I know - it seems like it was only yesterday that I was ranting and making random lists and generally showing off what a weirdo I am... and look at me now! I'm pretty much exactly the same...

Anyway! I know I could look back at the year that was, but I like to save that for New Year's. But you know how Oprah has favorite things? Well so do I. And in proper Widows on the Dock style, here is a top 5 list of my favorite things right now.

1. Twitter

Twitter isn't new to me. I've had it since 2009. But unlike facebook, which was AWESOME back in 2007 and just depresses me in 2011, I still like it. I find that Twitter really puts into perspective what's relevant in our lives, and what's really worth sharing with the world and what should maybe stay in your diary. By the way, Widows on the Dock has a twitter account (that I should really get on updating... oops!)... if you're interested, check us out @widowsonthedock.

2. Ian White

Ian White is a handsome man and him and David Spence are why I keep watching CTV News Calgary. I should maybe be embarrassed about this but deep down I know you all agree with me so I'm not so ashamed.

3. iPhone 4

So earlier this year I made the big switch from Blackberry over to the iPhone and I haven't looked back since. I love everything about it and I'm pretty convinced that I always will.

4. Pumpkin Pecan Bars by Kashi

The best snack award goes to Kashi for this amazing little taste of heaven. I'd also like to thank my mother and father for keeping the pantry well stocked with boxes of these.

5. Kirsten

Holy fuck, how much do I love Kirsten? Enough to mention her like 3 times on my blog over the course of a year. If you don't know Kirsten I feel sorry for you, because that she is smoking hot and I'm not even ashamed to say that I'm a little gay for her. Also I'm really hoping that she'll come visit me in Calgary one day not too long from now. Please? :(

Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone who's been checking out what I've got to say over the past year. It's been a really successful year so here's hoping to many more!

my epic dream

You guys... YOU GUYS! I had the most amazing dream last night! Like you don't even know! First of all, I was dating a certain local celebrity (I won't specify because it's kind of embarassing!) and we were really happy and everything, except he was like, weirdly obsessed with anal sex and I refused to partake in that activity. And we had to go to couples therapy for it and it was really strange.

But then afterwards, we went to this awesome movie parade where all these actors were dressed up as characters from movies and they were just walking down the street. Elijah Wood was there as Frodo and as he passed me he looked at me and said hello. AND THEN I DIED OF LOVE!

Oh yeah, and you know what made the dream even better? Kevin James was my best friend.

You're probably reading this and feeling jealous of my dream life right now. That's okay, my real life is jealous of my dream life too.
