Housekeeping

A quick bit of housekeeping before getting back to the food.

In the comments of the last post, Steve was approximately the 73rd person to remind me that I don't have any kind of bio posted here. Thanks, Steve... I've been meaning to get around to that for, oh, about a year, and I needed another kick in the pants.

Enter the "About The Author" link on the right. Now nobody can call me an "anonymous blogger". Not that anybody did. But now they'll be SO wrong if they do.

Very nice bio - thanks for posting it! I used to be in radio and have wondered about voiceover work but lack the ambition to do much about it. Now I have three reasons to envy you: 1) food adventures 2) blog 3)voiceovers.

I LOVE the blog, Top Chef, food, restaurants. Thanks for the bio. One of my friends/colleagues does voiceovers, something I never thought about before I met her.

I hope you're healed? I love your wife for taking care of you & the blog. I'm obviously a fan.

And I thank you for all of the effort you put into this.

Thanks for sharing! It's nice to know a little more about the guy who has been giving all us Top Chef junkies so much insight. This year I officially made this my first stop on Thursday mornings (and then at least 5x a day to see if anything new had been added). And a big thanks to Ted Allen (thank you Ted if you're reading) for introducing us all to Dom's great blog last year!

I still have no idea what sports teams you root for, which is killing me.

Cubs. Intensely. Season ticketholder since 1997.

For the record, however, I choose not to participate in the Cubs/Sox rivalry/brawl/war and I boycott the crosstown series. It's no longer good-natured. It's just nasty people being nasty and I'm not interested in being a part of it.

Also for the record, I've never had a glass of chardonnay at the park, I always know both the inning and the score (and have the scorecards to prove it), and could name every player on the field at all times during the year when they removed the names from the uniforms, thank you very much.

Incidentally, judging from your nick, I presume this means we don't have to be enemies? :-)

That's actually what I've been doing the longest. I started as a kid (six or seven) and it's what brought me out to L.A. for six years. I miss the days when I'd say I did voiceover and people would responsd, "What's that?" :-)

Oh my effin' God - you're GUYBRUSH THREEPWOOD?!!!

nice kitchen-aid. They grey is so much better than the boring old white one...

With as much blogging as you do here (and for which we all appreciate), it seems as if your Wikipedia article is lacking. Though who am I to judge since I don't have a ridiculously awesome blog with legions of followers let alone a Wikipedia page devoted to me.

Dude, do you know Cameron Suey?

"Incidentally, judging from your nick, I presume this means we don't have to be enemies? :-)"

Cubs, no problem. As a Twins fan (partial season ticket holder, jacked beyond belief for the new stadium), of course, I would have been obligated to despise you if you were a Sox fan. :)

...a mighty pirate!

Nice write up Dom. I have to admit something:

Randomly while googling somewhere somewhat related to something that came up in one of your posts, I accidentally stumbled upon what I'm fairly certain is your home address (in baltimore). I wasn't meaning to (and I'm obviously not going to share it), but it certainly made me feel like a creepy stalker.

Now that I've read your bio ... I feel even MORE like a creepy stalker.

*I wash and wash and wash but the stains never go away!*

Nobody likes me. I'm from NY and a Yankee fan (generations). 9 My other league team is the the Cards (only team west of the Mississippi when my dad was a kid in Iowa -- got to see Roger Clemen's 300th win thanks to my desire to see the Yanks/Cards at YS -- & I'm not a Clemens fan). I totally respect other team's fans; how can I not be a home team fan? I lived in Boston with a die-hard Red Sox fan! We're still friends. I'd love to see the Cubs win the WS. It's been too long. We're getting into fantasy leagues, so I'm happy to simply be a baseball fan (food fan, too).

Why/When are you moving to Northern California? Creepy, nosy stalkers want to know!

"Why/When are you moving to Northern California? Creepy, nosy stalkers want to know!"

Heh... funny you should bring that up!

I expect our moving plans to be finalized within the next couple of weeks... wherever it may be we're headed... but I want to wait until everything is a done deal before doing the big reveal :-)

This kind of reminds me of when in Saving Private Ryan Tom Hanks comes out and says he's an english teacher. Bad ass, regular guy.
