This is Michael, creator of the renown Snicker on a Cheesepuff appetizer and greatest Top Chef Contestant of all time. He is not simply Michael, he is the Dude, the Lubowski of the culinary world. May we all be honored to sample his Flintstonian approach to cuisine some day.
Fish and cheese, he likes it!
As always, thanks to Lostpedia

The survivors have been on the Island for two months.
Hurley destroys his stash, then finds out about the supply drop. "Dave" tries to convince Hurley that the Island is all a delusion, and urges him to commit 'suicide' to break out of it.
Ana Lucia prevents Sayid from shooting Ben.
Libby convinces Hurley that the Island is real, and kisses him.
Ms. Klugh lets Michael see Walt. Walt tells Michael that the Others "are not who they say they are... they're pretending". In return for Walt's freedom and a boat, Michael agrees to free Ben and lure Jack, Kate, Hurley, and Sawyer to the Others' camp.

For the Elimination Challenge, contestants were given access to Master Colicchio's kitchen at his restaurant Craft and each were to create one dish that would be served to New York chefs who had tried out and failed to be on the show. Contestants really needed their dishes to complement bitter if they wanted to be successful and most were not, successful that is. This season's contestants don't seem that up to the challenge. I mean, they were able to make whatever they wanted without restrictions and most still failed to please. That's not a good sign.

I have been designated as a Proof Reader. Doesn't sound all that bad considering Carol was given the task of Brick Layer. Debbie was given Gardener and she never even bothered to take the last 3 or 4 tests.
Wow, do they ding you for cheating or what? If I hadn't cheated, I might have been a Psychologist. Hey, ya never know. Man, looking at this brings back report card memories and I've worked hard to repress those.
Those who submitted their own questions were given DI Instructor t-shirts. (damn, why didn't I send in a question?)
I can't say that was the most exciting game they've helped us kill time with but still a good time was had. I can't to see what, if anything, it all means.
Back to a simpler time. It's still South Shore dammit!

Dora made it back in to town so Lora and I met her for a couple of dangerously tasty Lemon Drops .
Di and Jim joined us.
And then Jim, Di, Dora and I hooked up with Debbie and Gina for dinner at Kamakura. Can't think of a better way to end the work week.

For the Elimination Challenge, the chefs drew knives and selected different neighborhoods in New York to use as inspiration for their dishes, with two chefs for each neighborhood competing against each other. Most of the contestants didn't seem to do very well, there were not a lot of glowing reviews on the food. Let's hope it's just nerves. While I was pulling for Fabio (because he's from Italy which will make Mom happy and also because his name is Fabio which makes me happy) and Jamie from San Francisco, Stefan ended up winning the challenge. Congrats Stefan!
Poor young Patrick was asked to pack his knives and go for his Chinese Salmon failure. You knew he was in trouble when he chose to cook with black noodles, something he had never used before. As I said to Jim, if you're in a competition why would you even consider using a product you're unfamiliar with? The just screams DUH if you ask me. He said he was still a student so I guess that ends that lesson for him.
Oh, worth a mention, Patrick and Lauren went to culinary school together. I'm thinking the school might not want to promote that.
And it's good to see Tom Colicchio again! Just for fun, read his blog on Bravo's site... http://tinyurl.com/colicchio

Jack, Locke and Saywer encounter the Others while looking for Micheal.
Tom swaps their guns for Kate (because she can never just do what she's asked so she just had to follow them and get herself kidnapped in process. Way to help out Kate! )
