Before I begin today, I want to request something from you. I know most of you people have Facebook accounts. Maybe we’re friends, maybe we’re not. That’s not what matters now. What matters is that you became a fan of the Top Chef: Just Desserts Facebook page and click the “Like” button attached to my photograph. If I want to win the $5,000 prize I need as many votes as possible. Tell your friends. Have your friends tell their friends. I never ask you people for anything (except for that one time a few years ago I held a donation marathon, and that was a whopping success). Furthermore, if you want to help me live out my dream of meeting Gail Simmons, you need to use your Twitter account to re-tweet this Tweet so that it continually appears in her @mentions. Again, tell your friends, followers and family members. I refuse to let the Gail Simmons dream die. Who are you to deny me? A federale? Please. Nothing will stand between me and my alien-eyed, big-tittied TV crush. If you’re reading this, Gail, there’s still time to dump your loser husband. You’re not over the hill just yet.
Yesterday I retired to the desert for some much needed rest and relaxation. And I chose to spend my day hiking the trail to Lost Horse Mine (an absolute must for some amazing canyon views and easy hiking), tripping out on the views from Keys View, and finally taking in sunset from the Jumbo Rocks area. I was lucky enough to meet two very cool East Coast travelers on the path to the old gold mine. They didn’t mind my tagging along for the hike, and we all got along very well. Shirley and Brendan were their names. There was plenty of talk of life back east, food out west, and travel. It was like we’d known each other for, well, a few hours. The rest of the time (after the 6.2 mile hike) I was on my own. It was a great day. Lots of sun (temperatures neared 100 in the desert yesterday), not too many people, and a ton of photo opportunities. Behold! Joshua Tree (again!). Click to enlarge any of the pictures.
