The Best Link Today:

Okay, today I seriously mean "BEST LINK TODAY," at least for me and the other House fans, who were left to wonder why those evil producers killed off one of our favorite characters.  I don't want to be a spoiler, but you have to literally live under a rock to have missed this buzz, so . . .

Anyway, Zap 2 It reports today that the reason why Kal Penn left was not plot-driven or salary renegotiation-driven or even "I have a big movie career now"-driven.  The dude left a huge hit TV show to, YUP, join Obama's administration.

And, as if he wasn't already my favorite member of House's underling team, now I love him even more!!!  I don't know whether to be psyched or even more devastated.  All I know is, it would have been much cooler to have him disappear or quit or something, so he could come back, if that whole Obama/White House thang got old.  I wonder if he's surprised by the outpouring of freak out.

Maybe he wants to be President too?  Hmm . . . does Kumar's druggy past bode badly or well?

Only time (and not House) will tell.

LA (S.M. & BURBANK): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

I know, I know–I'm a hippo.  Not that kind of hippo.  More like a big ass hypocrite; who says one thing and does another.  Here I am, just moments after dissing cupcakes, writing about them once again:

Blame LAist, who blogged today about a super unique St. Patty's day treat: Yummy's Guinness Cupcakes.  How amazing does that sound?  How could I not share?

I think I'm on a major rich beer-as-dessert-course kick, having recently chugged a coffee bean-brewed stout at newly opening resto BoHo, lovingly sampled beer soaked sheep cheese at Joan's On Third and fondly reminisced about Guinness ice cream floats we tasted at Pix Patisserie during a snowy winter road trip last year to Portland, OR.  Sigh. Dreamy.

On a totally separate note, LAist also blogged today about Obama's impending trip to Cali and how to catch a glimpse of history's coolest Pres.

I say, try bringing him a Guinness cupcake.

I know that would win me over.
