--It looked like there was no stopping the Nom Nom Truck. Until they were halted in their tracks. What did you think about that last Truck Stop challenge? Too convenient? Or just what was needed to turn this L.A. vs. L.A. showdown into a nail-biter?

--First Lady Michelle Obama's White House initiative seems to be, so far, showing off killer biceps and encouraging kids to eat healthy. What could be wrong with that? Ask Glenn Beck. [Huffington Post] 

--File this one under "Only in L.A." Station Hollywood at the W Hollywood announces Monday Night Football viewings. So? It's on a 30-foot outdoor screen. There are also $15 beer buckets and 2-for-1 specialty drinks.

--Check out this photo gallery in Time magazine, based upon the book "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats."

--If you prefer to watch football from the 30-foot screen in your living room, check out 7 Wines for Football Season, which includes vino suggestions from Joe Montana, among others. [Snooth]

--I like to think my kitchen is pretty clean. I get a sense of satisfaction when the dishes are done, I've scrubbed down the counters and used some Ajax in the sink. But then I read this story.I wonder what kind of grade I would get. [Momlogic]
