I’m married to the Chief Engineer!

I spent my time sitting in libraries because it was too bloody hot. Guess who accomplished more? Well, come Monday the […]

Why I love Joss Whedon

This is not a post about what wonderful things Joss Whedon has done. I’m not going to go into witty writing, great characters, and super-powered teenage girls.
