what’s this? a tv show I want to watch?

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Since my mind is on viewing this week, I thought I’d put up a reminder that yes, Whose Line Is It Anyway is apparently returning. Tuesday, July 16th is the day, according to the all-powerful google. Wayne Brady, Ryan Stiles, and Colin Mochrie will all be returning. (Woohoo!)

At my workplace today, we compared the benefits of toy Iron Man repulsors (they light up!) versus toy rings (lighting up *would* be a crucial element, we agreed). It’s possible I will be completely useless for anything except discussing Marvel movies by the time Thursday comes. But today — OTTERDAY!

must be Thursday

And then there’s some days when I just say ‘to heck with this’ and read Harry Potter fanfic all evening. Then Comes a Mist and a Weeping Rain, by Faith Wood (faithwood) It always rains for Draco Malfoy. Metaphorically. And literally. Ever since he had accidentally Conjured a cloud. A cloud that’s ever so cross. […]

I bet there’s a graph of this on the internet

You know when you make an appointment, and it’s way out in the future, and you are absolutely, 100% certain that you know the date and time of said appointment? And yet somehow, as the date inches ever closer, somehow it becomes fuzzy, and murky, and basically what I’m saying is that I’m MOSTLY sure […]

April book report
