Unpopular Opinion: “The Last Jedi” Is Great Storytelling

Unpopular Opinion: “The Last Jedi” Is Great Storytelling

Posted February 4, 2018 in Reading, Real World, Thoughts, Writing // 5 Comments

Mes chers, I saw The Last Jedi about a month ago now, and honestly… I don’t understand why everyone has been hating on it. I waited several weeks to see it even though I LOVE Star Wars based on so many *meh* reviews from people I respected.  REGRET. It was really fantastic and I walked out of the theatre baffled as to why so many people found it disappointing. I’m trying to think of it from the point-of-view of a typical Star Wars fan, and the closest I can come up with is the fact there were so many grey areas. […]

My Day at Rhode Island Comic Con!

My Day at Rhode Island Comic Con!

Posted November 18, 2017 in Around the World, Real World // 9 Comments

Last Saturday, a small group of us went up to Rhode Island Comic Con.  We went last year and it’s SO COOL but also a big bundle of stress.  I remember going last year and telling myself “Okay, so the panels are awesome, but if we ever go again, can we NOT go on Saturday?!”  So of course, we went on Saturday again. RICC is one of the biggest fan conventions on the east coast, right after NYCC.  I live a lot closer to Rhode Island, so that’s my con of choice.  Like SDCC and NYCC, it’s huge.  It has […]

Hello my beautiful people!  Happy Monday! November’s already halfway over, and for you Americans like me, we’re just a little over a week until Thanksgiving – ack!  I haven’t even gotten a turkey yet, and we’re still finalizing plans.  I’m a super organized person, but my extended family isn’t, so I’m losing my mind!  But that glorious turkey coma will be worth it in the end.  Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans is one of my top three dinners, so I’m looking forward to it. Well, I’ve been a busy bumblebee these last two weeks.  Work continues to be crazy […]

Gumbo is the Queen of Delicious Soups (+ Recipe)

Posted October 3, 2017 in Real World // 8 Comments

Here in New England, we have two cultural soups:  Clam Chowdah, and Lobster Bisque.  People travel here for these soups.  They make it a summer staple to go to Bahstan and get some clam chowdah (after pahking the cah in Hahvaad yahd… okay, enough of the stereotypical Boston lingo).  I am not one of these people.  I have a seafood allergy, and even then just the idea of chowder makes my stomach churn. I like something that packs a little more of a punch.  Something rich and howling and sassy.  Something… from Louisiana. I’m a gumbo girl. I discovered gumbo in […]

Welcome Ladies & Gents, to the August Wrap Up! August has been a busy month!  For me, there’s been vacations and birthdays and a trip to the dentist (BLECH), and a solar eclipse!  I am so so proud of myself because I have posted every day this month!  I know a lot of people are heading back to school within a week, if they haven’t already.  Can you believe summer’s almost over?  SHEESH.  I think that we all have had a crazy month, so let’s get down to it!  EXCITING THINGS ARE AFOOT, MY PHOENIX FRIENDS. No, not that kind […]
