Martha Stewart Has Her Own Drone and She Fucking Loves It

Martha Stewart got a drone for her birthday last year ("in Maine," she notes, Martha Stewart-ishly) and it turns out she just can't get enough droning. In a TIME op-ed titled "Why I Love My Drone," she explains why: Because it makes it way easier to craft a marzipan Peter Rabbit cake that's an exact replica of her farm. <—-ACTUAL REASON.

So much has been done in the past without drones, airplanes, hot air balloons, or even extension ladders. It is hard to imagine André Le Nôtre laying out the exquisite landscape designs for Vaux-le-Vicomte, and later the magnificent Château de Versailles, with no high hill to stand on, no helicopter to fly in, and no drone to show him the complexities of the terrain. Yet he did, and with extreme precision, accuracy, and high style.

...Henry Alford wrote a satirical essay about me and my drones in The New Yorker that was really funny but missed the point about why I love my drone. Drones can be useful tools, and I am all about useful tools. One of my mottos is "the right tool for the right job."

GOD, I LOVE HER. [TIME]
