The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

Emily of the delightful blog The Altogether Unexpected included me in this fun tag! It's been a while since I got to really fangirl on this blog (and I get to do it again next time for my Ultimate Doctor Who Recap Post, yippee!). I'm so excited about finally getting around to answering her questions! (This… Continue reading The Fantastical and Felicitous Fictional Character Blog Tag

TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

After a week's respite from blogging, I'm happy to report that 1) I'm officially a Camp NaNoWriMo winner, 2) I finished Victoria: Season 3, and 3) I SAW AVENGERS: ENDGAME. Y'all need to give me another week to process (and recover from) Endgame before I share my review, haha. As for Camp NaNo, I'm thrilled… Continue reading TV Review: Victoria, Season 3

The Great Eucatastrophe: Good Friday and Notre-Dame

Then the young hero (who was God almighty) Got ready, resolute and strong in heart.

Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

I'm pretty sure I mentioned in a previous post that my mom and I have been watching Doctor Who together--and it has been fantastic. Her no-nonsense commentary and her indignation if ever I fail to warn her about a Scary Moment are worth their weight in gold. We love Eleven and Twelve the best, agree… Continue reading Music Review: Doctor Who Series 5-9

Vers is a Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the… Continue reading Movie Review: “Captain Marvel”

Of Lenten Thoughts and the Story of Saint Patrick

I turned 27 two Sundays ago. It's an elegant number, I think--far more so than 26. Maybe I'm odd, but I associate numbers with colors. 26, for example, is a somewhat boring grey with just a hint of blue, but 27 is a rich emerald green. I don't know why, but that's what it looks… Continue reading Of Lenten Thoughts and the Story of Saint Patrick

Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)

Last week I just had zero blogging inspiration. If I don't have anything to say then I'd better not say anything at all. But then this week, we had a serious health scare/crisis with my grandfather. He got out of a very successful surgery just this afternoon, and he's doing great--but needless to say, I've… Continue reading Pinterest Finds (because I’m too busy to blog…)
