1. Here are the four text messages I received during Top Chef last night:
"I know he's straight but I need you to get me in front of Tom."
"Can't believe how talented the chefs are!"
"I can smell Micah from a mile away and it don't smell good."
"I need to know more about Padma."
2. Regis was on Larry King last night sporting fire engine red hair that I would not call 'Shear Genius'. Paging Joy Philbin, you are the only one who can do something about this!
3. Here's a letter I got yesterday from someone I don't know who was being nice to me.... Andy, Do you know that there is a surgical procedure that can be performed to minimize your crossed eyes? The surgery isn't 100%, but it's something you might want to consider if you are going to continue to be on television (and be subjected to viewer comments). Good luck to you. Blake
4. I know I talk about it all the time and that it's endlessly boring, but cab fares in NYC are insane and traffic is beyond comprehension.
