The Dining Table
I have to admit that I am a bit of a mess around celebrities. Even minor celebrities turn me into a moron. My first celebrity sighting was in Seattle at the Whole Foods in South Lake Union. Spotted by her unforgettable scar, I saw Padma Lakshmi perusing the aisles with her posse. Knowing that Top Chef’s next season was supposedly in Seattle, I put the pieces together and thoughtlessly started following her through the produce section. I know this sounds completely crazy but what can I say, I wasn’t thinking and I was just so damn curious. Anyway, the madness was quickly ended when I heard a “move along ladies” from her entourage, indicating that I wasn’t the only one in this starstruck stupor.
