Twas the day before Christmas and all through the US, the lucky were home with their families – although many bored and blogging. Not that I’m bored, but enough to take notice of others blogging – it is after all cold and rainy here in Long Island and cabin fever is setting in before the 36 or so hours when everything but Chinese restaurants close down even begins but…
Back to those that are blogging. My favorite blog of the year goes to John Mayer. John’s made headlines more for dating Jessica and Jen than for his music but I’ve found a new respect for him, and feel like I’ve learned the most about him (good and odd) through his blog.
Reading John’s blog every now and again I’ve learned he has an obsession with food and photography. I happened to have been sitting next to him and Jen Aniston at dinner with a few friends at Il Mulina in New York’s West Village Friday night and when they were served a table full of desserts John snapped a few photos of the decadent treats before digging a soup spoon into the berries and cream. It doesn’t look like John’s posted these photos but he has a collection of photos of sweet holiday-themed confections he received from his fans. Check them out here, some people got pretty creative. http://www.johnmayer.com/blog
I think John’s most creative blog was his answer to the scandal that took place on the set of Grey’s Anatomy last year with allegations that Isaiah Washington made anti-gay slurs. If you don’t remember John’s proposed resolution, read it here: http://poponthepop.blogspot.com/2007/01/john-mayer-solves-greys-anatomy.html
Too bad ABC wasn’t listening.
Ok, I’m off to try to re-create the zucchini and parmesan latkas my friend heated up from Whole Foods at her Chanukah party the other night. My cooking and baking skills are a far cry from John Mayer and his fans so I’ll refrain from taking photos and sharing.
PS: Lindsay Lohan must be taking some time at home too and letting Samantha Ronson recover from the exhaustion she was hospitalized for the other day because Lindsay also blogged today – confirming her dad’s illegitimate child (her half sister) and sharing her thoughts on Britney Spears.
