The only good news I have for everyone is: this is my first post of the new year. I know. It sounds depressing already. Today, I had to get my blood drawn, because the skinny little stick I call a “doctor” called me OBESE (I’m 5′ even, 152 pounds, and a body mass index, BMI, […]

Letters to authors: Neil Gaiman, on Norse Mythology

It’s been such a long time since I wrote any letters to any authors lately, so I’d like to take this time to write another letter to the same author I wrote the first time… again. I know, I probably shouldn’t write anything to him a second time, but since I’ve finished listening to the […]

Nerd Queen Rewatch: Pure Chocolatey Goodness

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, 1971 Reflecting on my childhood, I remember watching my dad’s copy of Willy Wonka on videotape over and over again, and loving every second.
