I want to be Anthony Bourdain when I Grow Up

It is officially halfway through winter and I am sick of it.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I am not a winter girl. It’s all about the summer for me!

The only thing that saves me from my seasonal depression is Anthony Bourdain. You know, the guy on the Travel Channel that goes everywhere and drinks everything.  I am obsessed with his show, spending every evening sitting in my recliner, next to the fireplace watching No Reservations

He has other shows too and I watch them all.

Admittedly, I do watch the Travel Channel habitually.  I watch and then spend the remainder of my time googling “travel channel jobs” on my laptop.

A girl can dream…right?

Anthony says and does things on the show I would love to do.  He’s honest with what he likes and what he doesn’t. He invites himself into people’s houses and they cook for him. He visits every bar and establishment he finds  interesting. This is my dream job.

I, too, am a very honest and in-your-face kind of person.  I have strong opinions on certain things and yet some stuff I couldn’t care less about.

I think I would be a great travel host.

I need to make this happen.

End of story.

I’m off to google again.

    I completely agree with you! Sometimes he's a bit too brash for me though. I'm too nervous I'd offend. I guess, basically, I'm the love child of Anthony Bourdain and Samantha Brown; outgoing, nice and I like to drink. Reply

      Caroline....That cracked me up!! I am also obsessed with Samantha Brown. I think I am definitely more like Anthony. I generally "say it like it is." Reply

    Love him too! I forget the name of his show on CNN, but I love it. There always seems to be a marathon of it on when I can't watch it, but I catch it every chance I can! Reply
