On Your Marks, Get Set, BAKE!

I'm sidelined for a few days with what appears to be a sprained toe (sounds dumb, but I promise you, the pain is excruciating), which is giving me the opportunity to do a lot of knitting (to the point where I'm getting sick of it) while watching The Great British Baking Show (Bake Off) on Netflix. I don't drink, but I'm tempted to develop a drinking game for the show. Any time Sue or Mel make a pun or innuendo about the bake, any time Mary says something's "scrummy," any time Paul gives that impish grin after making a contestant question their choices... so many options! And then there are the season-specific triggers, like any time Ruby (2013) says her bake is terrible/wrong, any time Nadiya (2015) pulls a face, bonus drink!

A note to anyone watching this on Netflix: the seasons aren't labeled properly. "Season 1" (which includes "Continental Cake") is the 2014 season, "Season 2" (which includes "French Week") is 2013, and "Season 3" (which includes "Victorian") is 2015. The show started in 2010, and it would be lovely if Netflix would get its act together and present all the seasons in the proper order, but we get what we get.
