Correction: Last weeks results in the print edition labeled our sole First Offender of the week, Robert Rosen of Gaithersburg, as Richard Rosen. Even though Richard Rosen, as the Style Invitational Devotees noted, could be anagrammed into Scarred Rhino, Horrid Rancher and Rides Car Horn, among other colorful monikers, Robert still didnt want to change his name which, notes Devotee Jen Harris, happens to anagram to Errors Be Ton. Report from Week 1039 in which we asked you to write a passage using only the words contained in Hamlets To be, or not to be soliloquy. Shockingly for Style Invitational entrants, many of the entries were about sex! And with words like resolution, laws and whip, Washington area Losers immediately thought of Congress. One especially clever entry gets no prize because its author, Kristen Rowe, ignored the explicit instructions: Instead of using the required First Folio version of 1623, the one at the top of the Wikipedia page, Kristen used Shakespeares First Quarto, which had several words that werent in the other version. Still, its worth sharing this plot synopsis of Breaking Bad: A sicklied patient with no conscience scorns the laws with cursed enterprises to bear outrageous fortune for his would-be widow. O, the calamities he must endure.

2, Symon will prepare dishes for and personally serve a $35,000 table of eight to 10 guests. Bon Appetit Management staffers will create Symons menu for about 600 other guests, who will pay $3,500 or more per table, or $400 for individual tickets. Celebrity chefs have been good for the Saint Martins fundraiser, which also includes some fetching food-related live auction items. Last year, with Guy Fieri cooking, the gala raised nearly $760,000. In 2011, with Mario Batali , it raised $607,634. That was more than four times the amount raised at the first gala, in 2006, when there was no big-name chef involved. Symon is a Cleveland native with Greek and Sicilian roots. The Puget Sound Business Journal caught up with him via email for a little Q&A. How did you get this gig? Do you have some connection with Saint Martin’s? I have a close relationship with Mario Batali and his father Armando (proprietor of Salumi in Seattles Pioneer Square neighborhood). Things just worked out with my schedule that I was able to participate this year.
