38 Thoughts While Watching 'Diners, Drive-ins & Dives'

Everyone on this earth loves to watch FoodNetwork whether they admit it or not. Binging is too easy when gobs of delicious food on show after show is projected on TV. There's one in particular that is way too easy to binge-watch, and it's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" with the iconic white-spiked hair host, Guy Fieri. Between weird jokes, ridiculous foods, and the overall commentary, this show is easy to make fun of and love at the same time. Let me take you through the thought-process of binge-watching Triple D:

  1. Okay. It’s 10 P.M. Time to fuel the Food Network obsession.
  2. Please, please, please, let Chopped be on.
  3. Great, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" is on instead.
  4. Hopefully it’s not a marathon.
  5. Yup, it’s a marathon until 4 A.M.
  6. Well, there’s nothing else to watch, so... why not?
  8. It must be kind of dangerous to shoot that intro because you know, he’s actually driving.
  9. The first restaurant is literally called “Restaurant.” Oh.
  10. I’d drive right past it. How does this janky-looking place have the “best Asian/Caribbean food west of the Mississippi?”
  11. “Pork butt? My middle name is Pork Butt!” Is it, Guy? Is it?
  12. Ew, they’re making pigtail? Bull fish? No thanks.
  13. Wait, that actually looks delicious.
  14. Why am I so hungry all of the sudden?
  15. Next stop: restaurant inside of a gas station.
  16. How do people trust a restaurant on the side of a gas station? How??
  17. Back to the food. This little Mexican guy just pulled a 70-pound brisket out of the oven.
  18. That brisket looks PHENOM.
  19. Guy just inhaled a brisket sandwich. How is that humanly possible?
  20. Kind of grossed out. Kind of ready to jump in the car and get my own.
  21. I’m so hungry. It’s midnight. How am I on the fourth episode already?
  22. I want brisket. And fries. And that fish empanada thing.
  23. Wait, I hate fish. But it looks so good!
  24. Well all I’ve got is cereal and pizza rolls, so… damn this show.
  25. The camera shots are going so fast! Salt. Pepper. Cayenne. Secret spice blend. Garlic. BAM.
  26. Does the cameraman ever get to try the food?
  27. “Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. Are we making beef jerky to take with us on our trek over the Norwegian ice lands?” How do you even come up with this stuff Guy?
  28. How do these cooks respond to Guy’s jokes so well? I’d be like "haha yeah."
  29. Props on landing this show, though. Trying the best dishes at cool restaurants all over the country for free? ~Dream job status~
  30. He's always screaming!
  31. How doesn’t Guy get extremely fat on this show? He’s literally eating fried butter right now. Yeah, I’d do that, too.
  32. Do these restaurants have a certain test to pass to get on the show? What if a group of kids sent in a million recommendations for a really crappy restaurant?
  33. What if he actually hates a dish? That’d be so awkward for everyone involved.
  34. "Thanks for watching Triple D, America!" What is this show, a bra size?
  35. Wait, he’s already signing off? Bring back the brisket.
  36. All the sudden, it's 4 A.M.
  37. Why did I do this to myself? I didn’t even want to watch this show in the first place!
  38. Well done, Guy. Well done.

As much as I'd rather watch "Chopped" or "FoodNetwork Star" reruns, "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" will always satisfy my late night binging.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
