On Saturday, we went to the LA Times Festival of Books. We were there with one main goal: to see Ted Allen from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

I wish I had a better recollection of the things he said. He was on the cooking stage... he made lamb burgers with a yogurt sauce, along with a really delicious looking blue cheese cole slaw. He took questions from the audience, was witty as always. At one point, there was a woman trying to ask him something who didn't have the microphone. He jumped off the stage and ran back to her. It was sexy (when he jumped).

I really love this man. Truly.

Black shoes, white ankles (in the mirror) = totally me. And next to me, sans shoes... that's Chelsea.

Ted and Iron Chef Cat Cora, who had been presenting before. She came out to say goodbye to him.

"Carson would be making an obvious joke right now."

"Don't take a picture of this!"

...after the cucumber came out, the faces got a little more, um, orgasmic...

After the presentation, we made our way to the signing area. I gave him another mix, which went over well. He didn't recognize me at first... I didn't think he would, honestly. When he saw the CD, he knew it was me. He gave me a hug (still smells fantastic). It was wonderful. And Chelsea gave him wine, which he appreciated as well. With us, he knows he will always be given music and booze. Clearly, we're fantastic.

All in all... this weekend was fantastic. I really needed the getaway. I had an incredible time with Chelsea, who I always have an incredible time with. I got to see Ted again, which is something I'd wanted. And I got to see Rufus Wainwright, who I'm now dying to see do a full set. Thanks to Chelsea, who paid for everything and made this a weekend I will never forget. How's the sunburn, btw? Is yours getting any better?
