In case you didn't know, today is the first day of the World Cup hosted by South Africa, and yes I did make sure I watched kick off this morning! I'll be honest with you, I'm not the sports fan I used to be, and the sports fan that I used to be never really watched futbol. But this year is different. This year is special. This is the first time ever an African nation is hosting the World Cup. That's a pretty big deal, because if you hadn't noticed, Africa is the most marginalized and misunderstood continent--get that--continent in the world. So in the spirit of Their Eyes Were Watching Africa, I'm now a futbol fanatic! Adding to my African Nationalist excitement is the sweet realization that I will be in España during the tail end of the World Cup. I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be an endless supply of debauchery, Spaniards, and Me+3! Allá donde fueres, haz lo que vieres!* VIVA AFRICA!

I would be more than flattered if enough people found my blog to make a stink about me stealing pictures.

It shouldn't surprise you that I'm a Top Chef fanatic. Wednesday marked the finale of the Top Chef Masters, and the final 3 contestants were Susur Lee, Rick Moonen, and Marcus Samuelsson.
