Saturday Night Live this week sounds like a recap of this blog from the past few weeks.
Frightening realization, straight from my mom: if Micheal Phelps eats that much, just imagine how many times a day he must be go to the bathroom. Terrifying.
And as for Tina Fey: she nailed Palin — tone, cadence, facial expressions… I never thought of her as much of an impressionist (not a criticism, I just don’t think she did many segments in that vein) — but she was incredible. Granted I’m like, 90% in love with her already, but I think this was a great moment. If they ever have Tina Palin and Sarah Palin come together on a segment, I think my head will explode.
Unfortunately, as they ran the SNL opening credits I also made this prediction: “That was the peak for the season; it’s all downhill from here.” And the rest of the show pretty much proved that out (though Weekdend Update was pretty strong).

I feel guilty when I throw together an egg, cheese, and some ham on a grilled piece of toast (grilling it soaks up all the tasty butter from the eggs and the ham juice — yum), but check out what Michael Phelps eats for breakfast:
Phelps lends a new spin to the phrase “Breakfast of Champions” by starting off his day by eating three fried-egg sandwiches loaded with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise.
He follows that up with two cups of coffee, a five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast topped with powdered sugar and three chocolate-chip pancakes.
… about 4,000 calories worth, PER MEAL, according to the NYP (they call him Boy Gorge).
some people say that many calories — and really a lot of it from ‘bad’ foods like cheese, eggs, mayo, powdered sugar — will kill you. in the interest of hearing both sides of the issue:
