Brian Miller said...

and Ti...Yahtzee!

nener nener nener...smiles.

i think being a critic on a cooking show would be the best...one where they have to be creative...i am open to pretty much anything other than lima beans....

Titanium said...

Food critic? That would be da bomb, G-Man. Perfect verse, this!

Mine is here.

Titanium said...

Brian- yours packed a serious enough message that it totally needed first and second place.

Stranger said...

Yum! I am a food critic, I just don't get paid -- unless you're counting calories and...
well.
Fantastic 55. Have a great weekend, G-man.

Eric Alder said...

Color me DONE!

secret agent woman said...

I'd take that job any day.

(Chicken almond-ding cracked me up!_

Me said...

Mmmm...I should have had dinner before reading your 55! Yes, food critic would be a cool career, this is true. But when I grow up, I think I'd like to be a lottery winner. :)

Oh, by the way...mine is HERE .

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I picked a good day to visit, huh!? I love the idea here!

Serena said...

I wouldn't mind being a food critic, either. I get pretty sick of my own kitchen. That's a fun "55," Mr. G.:)

Jannie Funster said...

You wanna be that Anthony Bourdain guy, tho? He eats really really weird sh$t. :)

You so very very ROCK!

And dang, I so had planned to be here 2 hours ago, but life happened. :)

My 55 is here.

lime said...

TALON said...

Now my tummy is rumbling, G-Man! Oh, it would be fun to a food critic...and it wouldn't be bad to be a Rock Star either.

Loved the cartoon!

My 55 is HERE

Janna said...

The only problem with being a food critic is that I would eventually be asked to try liver, snails, and fish eggs.
(**shudder**)

Be sure and let me know how that goes. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Galen? Thinking about food? Don't worry. Thanksgiving is not far away...

My 55ve is up here

A Daft Scots Lass said...

You ALL know how I am in love with my food. Thats why my arse looks like it does.

Jen said...

Do it. Start a blog for that.

Quilly said...

Set up a blog and start critiquing the food at the local restaurants. After you've done a few (freebies) make up some cards, pass them out, and let it be known at the restaurants that you'd love to critique the meal of their choice and all it will cost them is two meals (you and a companion of your choice). It just might work. I know of at least one food blog that started that way.

Come on by my place and meet The Math Whiz.

Akelamalu said...

You'd make a great food critic G and you're already a great poet! x

MorningAJ said...

Excellent plan and excellent words.
This might just be the answer I need!
See my 55 to find out why.

Belinda Munoz said...

A dream job!!! And you know they'd make the best dishes for you as a critic. Yummy 55!!!

Mine is here: http://thehalfwaypoint.net/2010/10/together/

Enchanted Oak said...

Galen, just think of all the calories you're saving by not being a food critic. Your heart is probably thanking you.
Here’s my obsessive 55

Is an interesting job...you get fed AND you can complain if it's not good, minus the bill.

Mine's up...happy weekend!

Mama Zen said...

And, an excellent food critic you would be!

I'm up!

Tina said...

I want to be one too! Like Brian said, I'd love to be a judge on Chopped or Iron Chef. That would be a great gig! Loved you 55. Mine is here.

clean and crazy said...

this was cute when i read it last night but could not comment. don't know what was up with blogger, but i am up now. a picture 55!!

Sheila Moore said...

awesome! I am in this week: Running

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah, food critic would be a wonderful job. Except the newspaper expects you to pay for all your meals on what little they give you and the restaurants aren't supposed to know who you are.

I'm way late, but I finally came up with something.

Mine is here

Alice Audrey said...

You can tell I seriously considered it, eh?

steveroni said...

Didn't "Sammy" sing "I WANNA BE MEEEE"? But I DO think you'd be a great food critic...we like the same dishes--FOOD!

Mine is
HERE

Hope it is not too late...

Connie T. said...

I am a food critic everyday. Most of the food I make tastes awful.
The thick clam chowder makes me hungry. I love clam chowder, but it is hard to find a good bowl of it and canned tastes just awful.

Kavita said...

Kavita said...

MacDougal Street Baby said...

I'll be anything, as long as someone else is doing the cooking!
