Halloween Treat

Okay! For months now, I've been meaning to blog about my favorite TV comedy, Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee. In case you're not familiar, the woman has cocktail time on every show, manages to make her mixer match her kitchen (which changes color scheme each show), and cooks the most horrific shit you've ever seen! I mean, even for a drunk, she cooks bad. Her infamous corn nut Kwanzaa cake alone is simultaneously racially offensive and an insult to baked goods. But the food is secondary anyhow. It's all about booze and tablescapes for Sandy, and it's all so charmingly ridiculous. Unfortunately, time has been tight and I haven't been able to do it blogging justice, so I've just let it be. Also, if you're familiar with Sucks, they have the funniest Sandra Lee thread you could imagine.

However, Sandra's Halloween special last year was an outlandishly campy romp through truly disturbing snacks, and she's got a brand new one this year. It starts airing this Saturday. And I'm sure they'll be re-airing last year's delightfully frightful concotion, too, so be on the lookout for it. Then, we'll discuss!

Oh my god. I just spit my soda out. Amen!

Funny, Susan. You never disappoint. Miss Lee drives me insane putting an extra syllable in for good measure - e.g., "puh-late" for plate. And thanks for the Sucks link - Putting the Ho in Homemade. Hilarious! Congratulations on your book deal, too. Much success to you. Sorry about the post-season - for both of us!

Sandra Lee is comedy gold. The only show, other than sporting events, for which I am compelled to heckle -- I constantly shout at the screen for the entire half hour. Ridiculous doesn't even begin to cover it.

Is she still dating Andrew Cuomo, because that is one couple I can't see together.

Or can I?

Oh! I'm so glad I'm not alone in my Sandy thing!

Sommer, nice to meet you!

Oh Alice. What a rotten season, huh? Also, I hear the Braves aren't gonna sign Andruw? What the?

LP -- that's exactly why she'd never do a live show a la Emeril -- she'd be heckled! (until she handed out the cocktails. she IS good at those. Mostly, they involve a half bottle of vodka, and then some kind of juice. I love it.)

trudes! I didn't know about her and Cuomo! Last I knew she dumped the billionaire. I'll see if google turns up anything
