There’s nothing better than cupcakes, and nothing cooler than seeing one of your friends on television.
My high-school bestie Gwen — now the head chef at Crema Cafe in Cambridge, MA — will be on Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” this Sunday night (12 August) at 7p CST! I’ve been flailing my arms at people all week, encouraging them to watch.
Meghan Coleman (L) and Gwen Rogers (I KNOW HER, YOU GUYS), the chefs of Crema Cafe!
If you don’t want me to flail at you, you know what you need to do: Tune in to Food Network on Sunday, and cheer Gwen on!
I love “Doctor Who.”
I loved Eccleston as a gruff Nine, worried over Tennant as a feelings-y Ten after Rose’s precipitous departure, and cheered on the new youthful regime of Matt Smith’s Eleven. Karen Gillan as Amy Pond is the most complex and subtly brilliant companion to-date, and Arthur Darvill (who plays Amy’s husband, Rory) wins hearts worldwide — and possibly across all time and space — as the Centurion who sleeplessly guarded his true love for 2,000 years. I get chills thinking about the imperfect perfection of Amy and Rory’s HEA, and Smith’s nuanced performance as the Doctor is both terrifying and heartwarming.
Were I a 13-year-old girl, I would tell you that my OTP is canon: I ship Amy and Rory. Were I an 18-year-old girl, I would tell you that I think that gangly, cheerful Matt Smith is totes swoon-worthy. As an almost-26-year-old woman, I’m just going to tell you that I look forward to coming home from work once a week and spending my hard-earned money to legally download a new seventh-season episode.
Because I am an adult, and adults do not fangirl-squee all over the place.
Self-control, I haz it.
