Fangirl friday - The Great British Bake Off

This is a British baking tv show. You watch ordinary people baking the most delicious treats in the world. You learn something new, your waist line seems to expand just by watching them bake, you get a desire to learn how to bake (if you are like me and know nothing about baking), and you conclude that baking must be some kind of alchemy.

For this fangirl Friday I've decided to write about (and fangirl) about the Bake Off. There are a quite few reasons why I love it.

Quote of the Day

“Life is made of so many moments that mean nothing. Then one day, a single moment comes along to define every second that comes after. Such moments are tests of courage, of strength.” 
An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir

Quote of the Day

“Have you ever met someone and felt… I don't know how to describe it, felt a chance at having something that eluded you? I don't know… Forget I said anything."

I knew what he meant. He was describing that moment when you realize that you are lonely. For a time you can be alone and doing fine and never give a thought to living any other way and then you meet someone and suddenly you become lonely. It stabs at you, almost like a physical pain, and you feel both deprived and angry, deprived because you wish to be with that person and angry, because their absence brings you misery. It's a strange feeling, akin to desperation, a feeling that makes you wait by the phone even though you know that the call is an hour away. I was not going to lose my balance. Not yet.”

Quote of the Day

Show me a man or woman alone and I’ll show you a saint. Give me two and they’ll fall in love. Give me three and they’ll invent the charming thing we call “society.” Give me four and they’ll build a pyramid. Give me five and they’ll make one an outcast. Give me six and they’ll reinvent prejudice. Give me seven and in seven years they’ll reinvent warfare. Man may have been made in the image of God, but human society was made in the image of His opposite number, and is always trying to get back home.

~ Stephen King, The Stand

Quote of the Day

Out of bed, we're a storm. In bed, we find the eye. The detritus of our world, of our complex and difficult personalities, gets swept up into the various supercells eternally raging around us and vanishes.

Quote of the Day

More than a day after being cooped up with Sidewinder, Zane sat with his hands over his eyes, listening to them argue over dinner. Dinner! They argued over everything!  
“Shut up!” he finally hollered.  
Everyone froze, staring at him in shock.  
“Pizza,” Zane grunted, pointing at Owen. “Order it. Just cheese. Now.”  
The silence lasted a few more seconds. Then without a word, Owen shrugged and took out his phone to search for a pizza place, and the others all dispersed to go do whatever the hell Sidewinder did when they weren’t trying to kill each other. How the hell had these men all lived in one house for years?  
Ty patted Zane on the shoulder as he passed by, giving him a wink. Zane had to just roll his eyes. No fucking wonder the Marines had ousted these yahoos.
