Five Times I Was The Coolest Teacher

Now that the school year is coming to an end, I feel like a soldier surrendering.  Well, I tried.  Well, it’s over.  I feel like a failure, but there are students who brightened my outlook by sharing the times they enjoyed in my yearbook.  You know, there were times when[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Fandom Guilty Pleasures

Normally I would say “Nothing you enjoy should make you feel guilty!” but there are those things you cringe to admit like… 1.  I adore the Twilight series  and I’m glad to see it popping up on other people’s lists too!  I feel so bad because the books are a[…]

Greenpointing

My new neighbourhood is the greatest!  I’m so excited to be a Brooklyner, especially in such a quaint, adorable part of town.  Over the past weekend, I had the chance to explore and photograph just a small handful of places around town (and dine at them).  No better way to[…]

In honor of Father’s Day, much as for Mother’s Day, we are listing out favourite fiction fathers this weekend! 1.  Bob Belcher from Bob’s Burgers  is sort of the “straight man” to his wacky family, but that’s what they need.  Also, the burger puns. 2.  Giles from Buffy the Vampire[…]

5 Fandom Friday: On The BIG Screen!

Sooo, Hollywood is all about making movies of things.  And TV series.  And that’s terrible.  ART IS ART!  Okay?  Comics are a medium unto themselves.  Who ever suggested making a pilot of the Mona Lisa, or turning Starry Night into a blockbuster?  I can’t even wrap my head around how[…]

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Gluten-Free Plain Bagels

Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Plain Bagels Tastes Like:  These, you guys, are the best gluten-free bagels I have ever eaten!  The texture of bagels usually comes from extra gluten, so making bagels that hit close to the right texture without gluten is tough.  They usually taste like dry sponges.  But these,[…]
