Friday, September 8th, 2017

Not a fic, but an interesting look at how zoos prepare for major storms. Flamingos In The Men’s Room: How Zoos And Aquariums Handle Hurricanes, by Danny Nett “The AZA-accredited facilities in particular are a very big family,” Vernon says. “It’s incredible to see people willing to drop everything and come down to Texas and […]

movie review: Stardust

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

I was ready to be unimpressed by this movie. (So, low expectations, easier to exceed them.) And sure, I thought it started kind of slow, and at one point I had to pause it and give my cat a lecture on why you should always wake your partner up instead of sneaking off while they’re […]

My roommate and I have officially named this the year of crazy cat people. Because honestly, we work together, and […]

…oh, come on

Already it feels like it’s been a long week, and it’s only Tuesday! Here’s an ewok instead. (Credit: Lucy Ravenscar on Ravelry, […]

“You have much more power and control over your life and the decisions within it than you realize. Be flexible, laugh, and choose what is best for you, even if it seems the most difficult thing to do. The coyote howls to let us know that whatever your decision or choice, it won’t be as […]
