The Honey Pot


So, You Want To Meet The Baker?

Yes, you played 20 Questions with Tom from The Great Pumpkin, talking about food, baking, and why on earth anyone would write a food and humor tumblr in the 2nd person.  Why on earth would you do this?

Said interview contains: you, food, and such gems as,

That curd slapped me in the face.  We don’t speak of that cake in my house anymore.”

Ahem.  Hi, *I’m* the person behind ieatbutter.  I bake and write, and also talk about myself baking and writing in the above link.  If fiction is your bag and you’re in the NYC area, drop on by the Storychord event and say hello!

"That’s what interests me about The Doctor because, actually, look at the blood on the man’s hands. 900 years, countless very selfish choices, and he’s literally blown planets up. His own race, you know, that’s all on his hands. Which is why I think he has to make silly jokes and wear a fez. Because if he didn’t, he’d hang himself."
"It’s very different for each show. With Doctor Who I’m thinking of how I can get people to be scared I suppose: what’s the monster this week, what’s the adventure, what’s the fastest way we can start the story, how soon can I get Matt Smith running is probably the focus there. With Sherlock it’s different because Mark [Gatiss] and I sit around wondering which one are we going to do this year, which bits of the original haven’t been touched."



Interviewer: ‘You both are British?’

Cillian: ‘No, I’m Irish.’

Interviewer: ’Well, yeah… British’

Cillian: ’No no no, I’m Irish’

I once got into a HUGE FIGHT with an Anglophile who insisted that everyone in the U.K. is British. I insisted, no, they’re really not. He actually stormed out in the middle of the conversation yelling “They’re all British!” as he slammed the door.

Brittania, the Latin name for the Isle of Great Britain, was the name the Roman invaders gave ONE ISLAND. Hibernia was the Latin name for Ireland. It has never been a part of Britain, other than by English conquest and any Irishman who believes in nationalism will object, on VERY solid grounds, to being called “British”.

* I found this clip looking for Hardy for Jennifer, but this reminded me of something stupid I once argued about and hey, what’s this tumblr for again?

Ouch, this is painful to watch…I’m gonna watch it again. <3

"That’s where I’d like to settle down. In one of those houses that back on to the private park, which I’d get a key for! That’s really living the dream. I’d probably only be able to afford a box in somewhere like Kensington, so I might well come back to Birmingham. I have a real love for the city. When I was younger I was desperate to get out, but now I have fallen in love with it again."


Jules and Jennifer, I thought you might enjoy this!

this was great, Thanks Michaela!

What do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?

Sendak: I would tell them to go to hell. That’s a question I will not tolerate.

Because kids can handle it?

Sendak: If they can’t handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But it’s not a question that can be answered.

This concentration on kids being scared, as though we as adults can’t be scared. Of course we’re scared. I’m scared of watching a TV show about vampires. I can’t fall asleep. It never stops. We’re grown-ups; we know better, but we’re afraid.
