Number 9 on the Bucket List was checked off tonight.
Oh yes happy people, tonight…I met Alton Brown. He signed my book, we spoke and there was a photo op moment. It was awesome. Our “conversation” was even more awesome as it went something like this:
Me: Ummm, you’re on my list….
AB: what list (with the same raised eyebrow you see on the show)
Me: …the list of people I want to meet before I die
AB: Do you currently have a life threatening illness?
Me: Nope, totally healthy
Yep. I told him he was on my bucket list, and he had a snarky response! AMAZING! His lecture was also awesome. In included such gems like “how do you make kids eat? DON’T GIVE IN TO THE LITTLE TERRORISTS,” the concept that chickens don’t have fingers, that China should not make canned chili for the USA, how people should take more the 5mins to eat cause no other wolf is going to come steal your food, and the following slides:
All ending with this quirky Food Network star of Good Eats
All in all, it was a wonderful night. Lecture, meeting AB and a fantabulous episode of the ever so ridiculous Glee, which I must say as crazy as it is…it may have used one of my not-admitted-favorites tonight. So to end on a great reminder in the midst of my up and down sanity and many mental changes in life, I give you…wait for it…Keep Holding On, by the one and only Avril Lavigne:
There’s nothing you could say/Nothing you could do/There’s no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
‘Cause you know we’ll make it through/we’ll make it through
