Well Said: Hell, Alton Brown, and Blogging

"Oh, sweetie, of course you're going to hell. That's where all self-pitying drama queens go."
"I'm like a kitchen ninja from an Alton Brown skit."
"Is it terrible that I'm thinking, through bites of my cupcake, about how this will make a fantastic blog entry?"
Life From Scratch by Melissa Ford is so charming I don't want it to end.
