People we'd like to shake hands with:
Blogger Lisa Petty (who also handles Appetite For Instruction in these pages), who won a contest and now gets to have dinner with Ted Allen on Friday. It's an especially momentous occasion because, she claims, it will mark her first celebrity encounter since bumping into Morgan Fairchild in Granada's ladies' room many years back...but that's hearsay.
People we want to sissy slap:
No one, really (other than the usual lot)...although we would like to take out some rain-and-cloud soaked anger on local weather people--except Samantha Davies, we would never say anything against her. Oh, and except for any meteorologists who work out on a regular basis.
