Andrew Zimmern Interview

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Andrew Zimmern is the host of the Travel Channel's hit series Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, and today his website posted a super nice interview with yours truly. So now you can learn about the shameful contents of my refrigerator and where I got my penchant for puns here. I know, I know; your life is now complete. You're welcome.

Heather said...

I don't mean to be a hater, because I love your blog, but I'd want someone to let me know: You spelled "refrigerator" wrong.

C. Beth said...

Congrats on the interview!

I just noticed that your blog still says you were nominated for a Blogger's Choice Award. If they don't give you a new graphic listing you as a WINNER you should create one! We all know it's only the losers who say, "It's just great to be nominated." ;) If you make your own I vote for a huge, gaudy gold medal, preferably with typos on it...you know, an Award Wreck.

Melanie P said...

OMG! I love AZ and am so stoked that you were on there! WTG! BTW...I'm a total slut to your site...I'd do anything to read it! LOL

joyce said...

Wow--how neat ! Come on, Bertolli frozen bags of pasta are not that hard to cook for supper in the microwave. I even add a bag of frozen broccoli for even more veggies. But, thanks to you, I smile when I eat muffins for breakfast---'cause it is cake !

MaryO said...

Very nice!

I'm still hoping for a stint on either Leno or Letterman !!!

Kira said...

thats pretty much amazing! I love his show!

writtenwyrdd said...

Congrats on more deserved recognition. It's all about the humor, lady, not the craptastic cakes. Okay, it's about the cakes. But you make them extraordinary funny with your commentary.

Jen said...

Heather,

Aw, dang it! I need to have a little memo on the side: "XX Days Since Jen Made a Spelling Error." I think I was up to at least 10 there... (days, not errors!)

Thanks for the correction - although I still want to know why "fridge" has a "d" in it but "refrigerator" does not. I love our language, I really do.

Oh, and C. Beth - if you make me a shiny gold medal graphic, I'll put it up. Apparently the BCAs don't give out "I won!" badges - so sad. :(

Jen, Congrats on another awesome interview. Please tell me you weren't lying about all of your past jobs. Oh, and for some reason, I thought you were Canadian.

Sorry if I sent this twice.

kikibibi said...

Jen - I'm sorry to go off topic, but I wondered if you could have a discussion sometime soon of "cake balls." I have recently become aware of these frightening things, and after a posting on Pioneer Woman today, I am now feeling quite ill just thinking about them.

It's a boxed cake mix, cooled then crumbled up, and a jar of frosting mixed in. Rolled into balls then frozen, then dipped into icing and decorated. Ick, right? I've never actually had one, but it just sounds. so. wrong. Right?

Lose That Girl said...

Congratulations! You deserve the press. Love your site. I agree with c.beth...you should have a new WINNER badge from Blogger's Choice.

Tanzie said...

You go girl!

Kathy said...

Way to go! That's a nicely done interview between you and our Andrew (I claim him as I am from Minneosta and my seestor has met him on several occasions).

I need to tell you - I love your site and I have this need to order a cake with "under neat that" on it for the next birthday party I bring a cake to!

Mary said...

very nice interview - you come across very intelligently in spite of the now-corrected spelling error earlier... :)

Kimberly said...

That is crazy cool!

Can a book deal be far away? A Wreck book would be my favorite Christmas gift to give!!

Debbi said...

Oh, big deal! Refrigerator was spelled wrong! We still love you, Jen! It's all about the cake anyway!

Libbie said...

No way! Congrats on the big-time interview. I love his show. :)

Marie said...

actually, I'm sure you do know this, but you DID NOT spell refrigerator wrong.

Angela said...

WOW, thanks to that comment by kikibibi, I'm now totally craving cake balls. I had no idea such a thing existed, and must have some. Immediately.

woolies said...

Awesome! congratulations!

Jen! You've hit the BIG time baby!! Andrew Zimmern. How cool for you! Great interview too.

Jen said...

My friend will SO kill me for doing this to her...BUT in the spirit of Halloween...She & Her husband had to make sugary treats for the office parties.. Please go to her blog & see the picture of the "kitty litter cake" SERIOUSLY! It is the funniest thing EVER. I got her to send me the "makeup" of this so I can make one tomorrow to mess with my hubby.

Loved the interview! I saw one of those spider cakes at wal-mart yesterday and thought of you!

Stephanie said...

you are officially my idol since you were a skip on the jungle cruise. i suppose it was at WDW, but one of my dream jobs is to be a skipper on the disneyland jungle cruise. ^-^

Mai. M. said...

That's totally unexpected to have this blog on that site but it was fun to read it!

Josephine said...

congratulations on the interview, I just wish it was with a different person. I have such a loathing for that person that I have problems expressing it. Everything about him seems to grate on me.

LadyShay said...

I loved reading your interview. And your in Orlando like MEEEE, now I can stalk you:)

Always a great blog.

Anne Basso said...

A Jungle Cruise Skipper? Jen, are you a former Cast Member? That would explain so much. I tend to think Disney employees (especially attractions) have a lot of...personality ;-)
