Strange Days

Two night ago I was talking to my in-laws about going to the check out a caterer for my sister-in-law’s wedding and I actually said “I can’t go tomorrow. I’ve got to write my Top Chef recap in the morning.”

And it was true.

One of the most important things I do every week is write a Top Chef recap for MamaPop.

This is not what I thought my life would be like when I grew up. This is much better. Much stranger, but better.

Speaking of which! Some of my awesome commenters over at MamaPop brought something very important to my attention.

Kevin Gillespie from Top Chef


looks exactly like Yukon Cornelius.


This simple fact has been a source of great joy for me for two days.

I can only hope that you are all equally easy to amuse.

  1. OMG, it’s so true! Maybe that is why I love Kevin so much.

  2. Okay now I get your tweet from earlier.

  3. You are so right!

    Are we agreed that Kevin is definitely, positively going to win? My husband with the strong gay gene has predicted that from the beginning.

    We didn’t know the husband had a strong gay gene until we started watching Project Runway and Top Chef, and he has a heterosexual savant way of knowing what or who is going to win every week.

  4. Love Top Chef and I love Kevin. We have been predicting him to win for weeks now.

    And you are right…he does look just like Y.C.

  5. Cornelius – that’s funny.

  6. ha!

  7. My husband and I have been wracking our brains to think of who he reminds us of. Never in a million years would we have come up with this one, but I certainly see your point.!

  8. Yes, I am just as easily amused. It is almost as funny as when I realized my dad looked like Mr. Bentley…

  9. HAHA great comparison!

  10. Do you read ThursdayNightSmackdown? She does a very funny liveblogging of Top Chef. She calls Kevin “Beardie” but has also pointed out the Yukon Cornelious similarity. I also giggle every time I think of it.

  11. Don’t go giving us more credit than we deserve! Of course it’s amusing! They are very similar, though I doubt Yukon can make escargot to my liking.

  12. I have such a hard time liking him because he looks funny. I know, I am mean. He also looks like a guy I dated who was a tool so maybe it’s that?


  13. This is so true on both counts. If someone had told me that I would be doing this when I was in high school or even five years ago I would have laughed at them.
