Another tedious, dreary coke-head?

As I've mentioned on here before I can't stand coke-heads; tedious, dreary little shits for the most part who imagine that a chemical makes them temporarily interesting or talented. It doesn't. Take their powder away and they're just grey, dull little people with nothing interesting to say at all.

I've never been tempted by Lawson's culinary tuition, never watched her TV show, or bothered to read her books or columns. Which gives me even greater confidence that my source of food wisdom and culinary knowledge, Prue Leith, owes her unparalleled excellence to innate skill.

Elizabeth David was the greatest, and would never have lowered herself to Lawson's level of populist celebrity pish.

And the only TV chef worth watching was the late great Keith Floyd.

Sorry, was that "cokehead" or "alleged cokehead" at this stage of the game?

Is she a real person?

I thought that she was a TV character...

And I was always of the opinion that Ronni Ancona did the part better.

Raedwald - well said. Though it is the proselytising coke-heads that I find most obnoxious. I have never watched Nigella, so have no direct gauge on her personality, yet I tend to feel sorry for her. She appears more the inadequate victim of the celebrity culture and the how-cool-and-how-liberated-is-coke fashion.

I watched it a couple of times, then got bored. Even her rather excellent pair of norks grew to bore me after two episodes.

A nice pleasant "English" face of good cooking IMHO is Delia.

Regardless, Charles Saatchi has revealed himself to be an utter and total cunt. She's well out of that one.

Yes I hear what you all say ; but you cannot dispute that she has a great body .

Couldn't stand the woman's appearance on TV - so never bothered to check out the food.

However, just had a quick gander at the online bios (for her and Saatchi) ... My, how Fame and Fortune can beget tragedy! The character assassins (spiritual murderers) really should take note. The rest of us might, in general, re-consider the casting of stones ........ though I don't suppose such objects of derision suffer much from grains of sand (unless they perceive themselves as Sybils).

Couldn't stand the woman on TV, so never tried the food.

However, I've just done a quick web-recci on the Lawson/Saatchi bios. It's amazing how deadly Fame and Fortune can be. Maybe the professional character assassins (spiritual murderers) would be wise to bear that in mind as they cast their rock-stones. For the rest of us? Well, our thoughts are but grains of sand --- which are irrelevant to the 'stars': unless their idols have turned them into Sybils, of course.

I rest my case.

Tingey - do you REALLY believe all you hear on the news or read in the papers? If so, you are even more stupid than I believed.

Charles Saatchi is clearly a clinical Narcissist. The delicious Nigella (agreed, doctor!) is well out of that relationship.

If Nigella was a coke head she would have a figure like Trinny Woodall. As far as I am concerned this is narcissistic husband slander.

@votefor

Thanks - that's magnificent :-)

Raedwald said...

Points taken - minor alteration to title ;)

And Nigella's confectionery recipes are excellent - her Brownies, for example, are very good. Nope, she had the misfortune to fall for a very nasty man (Narcissists can be very charismatic), who could have ensured that their parting stayed out of the public eye - instead, he insisted on it being in public, and smeared his ex horribly. A weapons grade cunt.
