November 5, 2013: Remember, remember, the fifth of November; gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason, and donuts should be forgot. It’s Guy Fawkes Day, and also Gunpowder Day, commemorating the attempted blow-uppitude of the House of Lords back in 1605. As for National Doughnut Day, this is the second of the year (the previous one is the first Friday of June). Because one day a year is not enough for the sheer awesomeness of doughnuts. Back when I ate the gluten, I was either a maple bar or glazed old-fashioned girl. Though I’ve never been a big enough doughnut fiend to merit blowing up anything for them.
