Friday's Unscientific Poll: Bake Off + Seven Days of Selfies (6/7) [20160826|14:33]

In a rare, almost scientific move, I am following up on last week's poll. Here is my new phone case, simultaneously expressing my love of Japanese woodblock printing and Pokémon Go.

Pokemon Go meets Katsushika Hokusai

The Great British Bake Off has begun again. The first episode of the new season aired on Wednesday night. I livetweeted with the other fanpersons on my list. We all fell in love with Selasi Gbormittah. So...who is/are your favourite(s)? (A reminder of the contestants, with photos: Radio Times listing)



My favourite(s) on Bake Off this year are:
Poll #2052588 Bake Off 2016

Sadly, Google pictures no longer displays links to individual photos. Any chance you could put your 7 days of selfies into an album and share that link?

And, actually, even more sadly, here in the states we have to wait nearly a year to see your BAKE! Although this time around, I'm seriously thinking of using one of those spoofing tools... no, really, my ip is in the uk. It is!

I have to use one for the Sewing Bee because they never send those to us at all!

FWIW, it's getting tricky to do because the BBC tries to block VPNs, but I was able to get it to work with one called Tunnelbear last week. It's such a bummer to wait when there's this whole conversation that you're missing out on!

Yep. Tunnelbear is what I use. I gave up the pretense and watched last week's episode plus the fun side program An extra Slice.

AUGGGHHH Google Photos is so annoying. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The last DW/LJ post I did using a shared album was fine. This one (with public photo in shared album) is not. WHYYY

Anyway, I stuck it on Flickr so hopefully it shows now. Thanks for letting me know!

I find it so hard to have a favorite this early on when there are so many contestants! Also, watching from the US, if I watch it live I'm watching during my workday, which means I can only spare a small amount of attention for it. :P (I wasn't sure if it would be possible to watch after the fact and I didn't want to miss it.)

It's starting to narrow down now. I have three episodes to catch up on (I missed last night's) so very excited. I have managed to avoid being spoiled by avoiding Twitter when it's on...!
