Used

While doing unabashed snooping for Valentine’s Day gifts, I asked my boyfriend what kinds of things he likes.  That’s a pretty general question, right? His reply:  Things that become more of themselves the more that they are used. Huh?  Here’s a good example of this:  we were in Pottery Barn[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Favourite Fandom Accessories

As far as “accessories” go, I don’t really own that much, so I expanded this to include all fandom accoutrement that I’ve accumulated in my life.  Accessories, clothes, etc. 1.  Battlestar Galactica sweatshirt  will, surprisingly, make you the instant hit of the party.  I wore mine on New Year’s Eve[…]

Drunk Furniture

Have you seen the hot trending topic “Drunk Furniture” ?  Basically, you find old furniture thrown out at the curb and give it a caption like it’s drunk. THIS IS THE FUNNEST GAME EVER. Now, whenever I see ratty old gross furniture chucked out on the sidewalk, I don’t think[…]

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Dark Chocolate Toffee with Walnuts and Pecans

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Toffee with Walnuts and Pecans Tastes Like:  crunchy, sweet toffee bar with a hint of nuts.  Not so many nuts as you’d notice, but it’s a good overall effect! Great With:  Throwing on top of your basket in the checkout line because you just. can’t. not.[…]

Batgirl 38: Backsliding

Don’t be fooled by the shy, demure girl on the cover who’s apparently afraid to ride the subway.  In this issue, Batgirl does a complete 180 from badass to Bad Guy. But first, let’s talk about the good things. Even if it comes seemingly out of nowhere, Barbara Gordon’s sudden[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Songs That Changed My Life

I had to think really hard about this prompt, because music is such a huge part of my life!  It’s hard to pick those benchmark songs that mean the most, so sticking to theme, I’m picking the songs that marked a change in course, or really made me someone new. […]

Adjusting to the New Job

In period 2, we discussed the difference between “hatch” and “catch” using specific examples from Pokemon.  #gottacatchemall — Meghan Sara Karre (@MeghanSaraK) January 6, 2015 So you all know because I keep talking about it that I got a new job in a school back in December.  It’s been more[…]

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins

Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins Tastes Like:  sweet and hearty, complex and SO SO moist muffins…maybe it’s the maple here, but these are so sticky and soft and gushy (yes, I may have just made up a word) that even muffin haters (do they exist?  Shunnnn the muffin haterz) will[…]

Wonder Woman: Rescue Angel

A friend recently tipped me off that issue #19 of Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman, “Rescue Angel part 1 of 1,” was right up my alley and not to be missed.  Wonder Woman?  Really?  I was quite sceptical, but this comic completely won me over by the end.  And by[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Goin’ to Con

Oh me oh my, in my little life I’ve only ever been to the last 3 NYCC’s!  This prompt was hard to figure out because I’m not really sure what’s out there as far as Cons even GO, so I included some other fandom-related places I’d like to go as[…]

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Cilantro & Jalapeno Hummus

Trader Joe’s Smooth & Creamy Cilantro & Jalapeno Hummus Tastes Like:  JALAPENO LIKE WOAH.  This is tangy and crisp at first (thanks to the cilantro – Trader Joe does cilantro like nobody’s business) but leaves behind a message and that message is MOUTH BURN.  Which is awesome because YOU LOVE[…]

The Left Hand of Darkness

The Left Hand of Darkness has been a sentimental favourite of mine since I was first forced to read it in college.  Here’s a funny story for you:  when I decided in the 11th hour to change my major from Theatre to Comparative Literature, I had to take 3 lit[…]

5 Fandom Friday: I LOVE WINTER!

Okay so I can’t say anything about the weather this winter so far in NYC because if I say something, I’ll jinx it.  Suffice to say, it’s been an pretty decent winter up in here and I ain’t exactly complaining about it.  So I might as well throw NYC some[…]

Miss Turnstiles

There’s a rule in New York City that when you look your worst, the coolest things will happen to you.  Awww, yeah, like that.  That’s super hot.  Not winning any beauty competitions like that, I’m surely not. Anyway, on this, the morning after two great parties (clearly!), taking an F[…]

What's the Secret? Secret Six is Back!

Yes, fan-favourite Secret Six has been rebooted.  What does this mean?  Well, seems that it means that all those characters you knew and loved and wanted to see more of are…. Gone.  That arc is done.  No more Deadshot, no more Scandal/Lianna, no more Bane, NO MORE RAGDOLL.  Wait, what? […]

5 Fandom Friday: Fandom Resolutions

I’m not like, 100% sure what a “fandom resolution” is yet, so I may be wayyy off base here in my list, but I’m also really excited to see how everyone else interpreted the prompt!  On with the Five! 1.  Watch more Classic Doctor Who (2, 3, and 5)  because[…]

Currently…in January 2015

FEELING:  I’m currently in the middle of Winter Break from school and I could absolutely get used to this!  I can’t believe I’m sleeping in until after the sun rises (SO BRIGHT!). WATCHING:  I’m still working my way through recent seasons of Law & Order: SVU!  When I have time,[…]
