Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

This tv series is available on Netflix and I SUPER recommend it. (Thank you Faith for the original recommendation!)

Absolutely my favorite murder mystery show (after the first few seasons of Castle, which was…

Off-Key Reading

When I read the writing of others, I do not forgive mistakes. I do not forgive them because if the author tickles my imagination and doesn’t have too many grammatical errors, I don’t even NOTICE them.

Birding

[Perry] Aaaaaaaaaand….2015

Did you read that right? Cause I was sort of going for a Claptrap-esque vibe there but I’m not sure if that came through. Anyway, the new year is almost upon us all (run!) and as we march forward into it, I realize that there are things that I’ve done this year that I want…
