Cloverfield 1-18-08 – Sixth picture.


Translation of Japanese text.

ody, thank you for viewing! I’ll introduce this week’s delicious recipe. Please make sure to keep this one cold!

*Skinless chicken breast – 2, cut in halves
*Soumen (a kind of japanese noodle) – 10 oz.
*Watercress – 1/2 cup cut into small strips
*Turnip – 1/2 cup, thinly sliced
*Shiitake (japanese mushrooms) – 1/2 cup
*Chicken stock – 1/3 cup
*Sake (japanese rice wine) – 2 tbsp.
*Sugar – 1/2 tsp.
*Ocean-bottom crab – one

In a small saucepan, stir together 1/3 cup water, chicken stock, sake, and sugar. Chill it until it becomes cold. Grill the chicken breast on both sides for about 8 minutes, and then chill. Boil the noodles for about 3 minutes, and then run under cold water until chilled. Mix the watercress, turnips, and mushrooms into the soumen. Slice the chicken thinly and arrange on top of the soumen mix. Just before you serve, put the crab in the sauce and pour over the noodles generously.

Go go Oishii (”delicious”) Chef!”

Smackdown – Plans for Kristal and Vickie Guerrero.

Michael Hayes was the one who pushed for the heart attack route in the Kristal/Teddy wedding storyline. He had been wanting to an angle involving Viagra for quite some time. The Viagra induced heart attack on the wedding night had actually been scripted since June.

The plan was for Vickie Guerrero (and at one time Kristal but she’s likely staying babyface) to get hold of Long’s medical records, find out about the medical condition, and orchestrate this whole thing out of the storyline. The big goal of this storyline is to turn Vickie into a major heel.

The plan is now for Vickie to turn heel, and then turn her wrath against Rey in particular, to do a Hispanic version of Stone Cold vs. Vince McMahon. She is also likely to fire Kristal.

The plan for Kristal was for her to move to raw following the storyline. She’s currently in a real life relationship with Bobby Lashley and he asked Vince McMahon if she could move to raw to be with him. However, Lashley is out of acton till at least December, so that may be held off for a few months.

Another idea being batted around for Vickie to get even more heat from the fans is for her to start a relationship with one of the male wrestlers on smackdown. The idea is that the wrestler would get preferential treatment and it would make her more of a heel to the fans because she’s betraying Eddie. The other idea being talked about is that the wrestler up for the role would be using Vickie to get preferential treatment and Vickie would be trying to get the wrestler ‘in the sack’ in exchange. The wrestler would tease the idea but it would never actually happen in the storyline because the wrestler isn’t interested in going to bed with her; he just wants to use her to further his career.

MVP appears to be the primary candidate for the role. There has also ben talk of using Edge in the role but MVP seems more likely.

WWE – New Raw/Smackdown Trade.

There is talk of doing a trade that would send Mark Henry to Raw and Umaga to smackdown. This is bascially a way to provide fresh opponenets for each brand’s top babyfaces.

McMahon is very interested in doing a Umaga vs. Undertaker feud. Henry would likely feud with Cena since Raw is so low on top heels.

Henry’s program with Undertaker appears to be over after he was soundly defeated by him yet again at last Tuesdays’ Smackdown taping. Umaga’s program will HHH will likely be over soon as well.

WWE – More Cyber Sunday news.

WWE is already running ads in Canada for the Cyber Sunday pay-per-view that takes place in Washington D.C. in four weeks.

The choices are “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Mick Foley or “Stone Cold” Steve Austin

ECW – New Talent.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE has plans on “imminently expanding” the current ECW talent roster by bringing up guys from the developmental system. Which talent they will bring up remains to be seen at this point. There are only 13 active wrestlers on the roster at this time.
