    GOOD ONE!
    I had mentioned before about her fake accent, and as I was watching her the other day, I listened. And it isn't so much an accent as it is her voice when she grins. It is annoying. I had never really noticed it until I saw one of her weekend getaway shows and she spoke without that stupid grin and she sounded SO much better.

    I do not usually watch Giada's shows at all because she really gets on my nerves. If I turn on FN and she is on, I just change the channel. I am the same way with Ina Garten too.

    I guess when you get used to a physical flaw - especially in someone you like, it tends to disappear... Which is a good thing, I think...

    Yes, I stand corrected. I was watching Feasting on Asphalt 2 last night and noticed that he still has it. You're right, I like him :-)

    Re: Food Network

    Did anyone else catch that Fruit Fantasy Challenge on Food Network? It may have been a rerun from earlier, but I caught it last night on FN.

    "Four sculpting gurus compete in Hawaii by transforming a variety of produce into tropical sculptures that are more than 5 feet tall."

    I am always so impressed with the beautiful creations of food sculptures. I'm especially in love with the Chinese art of watermelon carving, but this show featured so much more than just that. The sculptures were absolutely amazingly beautiful and fantastic! Such talent and patience. It was a great show... if you haven't caught it yet, I know it'll be re-airing a few more times, so if you get a chance, check it out.
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.

    I jsut saw Ellen D's show with Paula Dean as a guest. Paula said that she had suffered from anxiety disorder for over 20 years and always hid it from family and friends. She always annoyed me with her happy attitude and the accent, but it made me look her in a different light. I'm interested in knowing more about her now.

    I saw that too... Interesting that she is branching out into print...

    I've always liked her... She's not afraid to let it all hang out, LOL...

    How funny they both burned their tongues on the rum sauce...

    Yeah I saw an interview with her on Larry King awhile back where she mentioned that too. I was a little surprised, and although I've always liked Paula, it made me respect her more for being able to overcome that.

    I'll wait until you've finished watching the Fruit Fantasy Challenge show to ask what you thought when something happened that brought tears to my eyes.
