Well well. To make up for the crappiness that has been February, today was actually a banner day. Got tickets to see The National in May. We went up to Salem to poke around and get a lay of the land, and while there three marvelous things happened. One: Went to a couple of bookstores with the vague hope of finding a book that I have been hotly anticipating for a year. Since it's not supposed to hit shelves until March 1, I was prepared for disappointment. But lo! One store had it on shelf early. Then we found a cupcakery in Beverly that has amazing cupcakes. Like, better than Lyndell's. And it was supposed to close at 2:00, but somehow was still open when we got there a bit past 3:00. These cupcakes are so good, seriously you guys. And then, on our way back to Somerville, the radio played a brand new My Chemical Romance song (shut up, I love them). Finally, we topped our day with a Metafilter meet-up and the Cinematic Titanic show at the Somerville Theater. Success!

I.... don't have words to describe how good these cupcakes are. Just as good if not slightly better than Sugar Sweet Sunshine.

The only downside is that they are pretty big and thus comparatively expensive, they're more special occasion cupcakes while Lyndell's are more every day cupcakes. But OMG, such good frosting! Such moist cake! Awesome flavor combinations! I want to leave a box of them at Kickass Crapcakes with a note saying "this is how you make cupcakes losers."

One of the reasons I love you: You split you cupcakes between 'special occasion' and 'everyday'.

That was you last night!
I was in my cramped Sommerville Theater seat and saw curly hair and boobs and was like, isn't that Tenille's old roomate?

That was me! Those seats were seriously uncomfortable! But the show was great!

Though it would depend on what you want from your cupcake. I can happily eat two Lyndells cupcakes in a sitting, and these Beverley cupcakes were actually so big that one was more than enough. They are fancier, too, with lots of fancytown frostings and fillings and whatnot. I will still be coming into Somerville to get my Lyndells fix once we move!

Aww, where are you moving to?

Not far! We're buying a house in Salem. As long as nothing goes terribly awry in the house-buying process, we're slated to move at the end of April.

Also, the compound "fancytown"? Amazing!
