But Would You Serve Soba Noodles To the Queen? Didn't. Think. So.

I am watching Martha, sort of. Actually, I am cleaning the bathroom adjacent to the family room and I can hear her in there, making some tofu dish with Andie MacDowell who is just a bit boring.

Note: Hence, the bathroom cleaning. A clear and overwhelming sign of 'boring' is when cleaning the bathroom wins.

Martha is gushing about the food. Andie is also gushing because when Martha tells you to gush, you gush. And you gush hard.

Look at these soba noodles, Martha says, aren' t they beautiful?

Andie is agreeable. Oh yes, she replies. The noodles are gorgeous. Simply gorgeous!

Note: Soba noodles, on a good day, barely look palatable. Soba noodles look like the fat worms that gather on the sidewalk after a storm and sadly, end up under bicycle tires and skateboards and men's size 11 running shoes and then dry up in the sun, eventually turning to dust.

Granted, it may not seem like good television to say Look at these soba noodles, aren't they worm-like and inadvertently disgusting?

But gorgeous?

Beaches with white sand and crashing waves are gorgeous. Spring blossoms that burst in pinks, whites and reds are gorgeous.

But soba noodles?

Luckily, I have a couple more bathrooms that need cleaning.

I would like to draw your attention to the last few posts involving Martha. Apparently ALL her guest are also quite boring. Maybe that's a pre-req to be on the Martha Stewart show - check your personality at the door to make Martha look less dull.

Maybe its the name, Andie MacDowell, Andy Garcia???
