Gordon’s Great Escape! November 13, 2012

This show is pretty Great (ha ha ha good job!).

Some things to consider while viewing:

1. No one appears to be a “stupid fat cow” in this series. It’s strange, but not off-putting.

2. Mr. Ramsay appears to participate in some cooking competition at the culmination of each episode, featuring etc. etc. etc.

3. I bought some new shirts recently. I understand they’re called “tunics”, but I didn’t read that anywhere.

4. Apparently Tuesdays are best for purchasing men’s clothing deal-wise. Thanks CNN! You’re welcome, Adam!

5. I’ve become sick. Cold maybe? I’m not sure. I sneeze often.


I actually found all of the episodes on YouTube. They run about forty-five minutes long, save the pilot which runs for about an hour. Season one Gordon travels India in search of curries. He finds that Indian food in England is terrible compared to genuine Indian food.  I’ll watch him do most anything (heh heh heh gross), but I was really entertained when he harnessed the power of a mighty cow to blaze around a flooded rice paddy. He takes off his shirt, revealing that he does indeed possess a human torso (I had my doubts), and gets in the ankle deep water. Step two: he grabs a harness/plow contraption and gets pulled around going really fast (not really) by two bulls. And hes holding one of their tails! WATCH THIS. WATCH ALL OF IT. IT’S VERY CONFUSING/BORING. Gordon calls ’em bullocks though. Which isn’t bizarre in itself, but I don’t call them bullocks.

In the next season he goes to southeast asia AND HE EATS A TARANTULA. JUST EATS IT FRIED. You get some interesting culinary information, I’m sure, but I’m not taking notes or anything. Look at Gordon Ramsay do things and talk with natives. “Mmmm” “Mmmm” he says that a lot when he likes what he’s eating, for instance. “That’s fucking delicious”. That too. I’m so sick. I need tissues all the time and they’ve become a precious commodity. Such a nuisance. I had to use spell check for that word over there. That “nuisance” word. I no kno wurds gooood n e more albalkdsflkd bsldkjf fdfewsdew



It looks like he’s trying to not make eye contact with the camera lens, doesn’t it? But only a little bit, because he’s not too into it. And it looks like he’s trying to unsuccessfully hide whatever he’s eating. But again, he’s not that into it either. ‘Cause I can see your food, Gordon. I can still see your food.

2 OMG’s, 3 LOL’s



Day 4,

The cold has abated. I can breathe again, mostly. I no longer suffer from the incessant “sneeze-fit”. My sinus doth not protest every waking moment. Also, I am allergic to my pomegranate body wash, because fuck me.
