Last night Marianne and I watched The Great British Bake Off and the Olympics at the same time. Highly recommend. Here's the condensed transcript.
A: I sent you the link for the Great British Bake Off, yes? They're all on YouTube.
M: Oh, right! Is gymnastics individual events on tonight?
A: It's diving right now, but yes.
M: Bake Off! First season I'm so excited.
A: I've watched a few episodes of S1. I like the current format better, but it's still great. (the jeans are still terrible, no worries about that.)
M: Okay already ditched S1. There's a lot of interviewing historians about the history of cake.
A: The historical segues are snoresville.
M: I figure S2 will be better because they have a rhythm. Oh hey Rob:
A: WUT. HE BETTER WIN.
A: I don't care if he can bake shit.
M: Oh dear he's a dumbass.
M: He's a photographer who dreams of being a baker?
A: Oh shut up.
M: He's making horrible sounding licorice cupcakes.
A: Grey batter. Kill him.
A: I love how quickly we turned on him.
M: Hahaha. Fickle.
A: A pretty face only gets you so far. Lemme know when gymnastics is on.
M: OK. How did Rob nail that Battenburg??
A: Black magic.
M: Ugh, history.
A: I love that we both hate the history segments.
M: If I wanted to learn I'd go to school.
A: I just laughed so loud I scared the cat.
M: Oh nooooo! Rob dropped the cake.
A: He’s crying.
M: Now i feel bad. His stupid jeans tho.
A: Terrible Denim Choices is the theme of this entire series.
M: Oh men's gymnastics!
A: I think men should have to dance on floor.
M: Diego gets a little twirly.
A: Yes! Twirl!
M: Frolic. Aw buddy! I like him.
A: Commercial! Bake.
M: I love how Paul loves Mary.
A: Ultimate good cop/bad cop.
M: He's such a silver fox.
A: God, yes. I'd hit that.
M: Oh no, Ben is singing. Stop. Oh God.
A: Shiiiiit. Secondhand embarrassment.
M: I’m so uncomfortable. GYM!
A: Hellloooo Max!
M: Tiny Brit.
M: BAKE. Lemon tart. Gimme.
A: YAS. Delicious.
M: GYM. Boys should have to wear glittery leotards.
A: Yes Pls.
M: Haha Kenzo. Dat hair.
A: He has brought shame upon his country. Poor cutie.
M: Much shame.
M: Oh, Diego.
A: Oh, honey.
M: I can’t handle him crying!
A: Diego is the best.
M: I love people who are just so excited for ANY medal.
A: DIEGO! DIEGO!
A: THEY ARE FALLING OUT.
M: And Arthur! I’m dying. I’m dead. This is everything.
M: Oh my gosh. Favorite Olympic moment.
A: Best ever.
M: BAKE. Rob is redeeming himself.
A: He is, but Ian is my favorite. Hugh Grant's gay cousin!
M: Love that man. GYM. 41 year old gymnast!
A: She is so great. I'd be mad about that pink leotard, tho.
M: I COULD STILL BE AN OLYMPIAN
M: Ugh, shut up Al.
A: "Somehow her 41 year old knees made that." Hate him.
M: HATE. Okay, BAKE.
M: Fucking pastryyyyy.
M: Oh god Rooooob.
A: I am dying. He burnt it.
M: He’s a disaster. I was just distracted by his hair.
A: It's his only strength.
M: ILU PAUL. GYM.
M: You know Gabby kind of hates Simone.
A: Oh, she does.
M: Maybe not kind of. Like a lot.
A: Poor Gabby. Simone makes it look too easy.
A: Ha, we are killing it.
M: Best life.
M: If you aren't alternating Olympics and baking you are missing out.
A: Baking as a sport.
M: Baking Olympics.
