Drew Barrymore Named Editor-at-Large for Refinery29, Writes About Sandwiches

Drew Barrymore has been named an editor-at-large for Refinery29. Why? Because she’s famous and alive. Famous, alive people get to do whatever they want.

In her first post for the site, Barrymore penned a wordy piece about a breakfast sandwich. Specifically, an egg sandwich with tomato and cheese. It’s uh, quite an achievement.

You can read Barrymore’s entire column by clicking through, but here’s our favorite sentence: “I cut a generous half-inch slice off the loaf and threw it in the toaster oven — yes, toaster ovens still rule my world!”

Are we supposed to be surprised that Barrymore uses a toaster oven? What’s wrong with toaster ovens? Have enough people in the world had conversations about Barrymore’s refusal to use small kitchen appliances that word eventually leaked back to her, thus prompting her to dispel this rumor?

Here’s hoping Barrymore’s next column answers those questions.
