The Iron Age of Blogging Has Just Begun

It appears that congratulations are in order. As usual, if it weren’t for automated reminders, I would miss my anniversaries. I am always amazed when I see sentimental posts on Twitter, celebrating “four years ago I saw The Crucible for the first time” or “this day five years ago I was at The Hobbit premiere”.…

The Fan A to Z – #K

[New week, new me, new post] K – Have you met RA? Where? Have you got a photo to share? And what did you say to him? Have I met RA? Well, let’s just say I have been in the vicinity of the man. “To meet” to me implies that you actually exchange words in…

The Fan A to Z – #G

G – How long have you been in the fandom, and how has your attitude to the fandom changed in that time? When is the time that you are “legitimately” *in* the fandom? My first posts happened  on tumblr, at the end of April 2012. Wow, six years – that’s an age… But the initial…

The Fan A to Z – #E

Did I say somewhere that I was going to spend all day today working on my tan, after finishing up that monster translation yesterday? Well, yeah… that was before an urgent proof-reading request for exam material came in. Luckily, it only took me 5 minutes to proof-read the corrections. And so I’ll quickly use my…

Time for A[nother] Fan Challenge

It’s summer. It’s actually not silly season. Time for another fan challenge. Those are usually reserved for droughts, and with O8 now in full swing, it doesn’t seem the ideal time to do this. Or maybe it is, seeing that I am heading off on my holidays tomorrow, with less regular access to the blog. So I…

A week and a half has passed since Richard dropped his mysterious hints about his upcoming return to the stage. “A couple of days”? Still waiting, Richard, dear. And the guessing game has moved on. My “Quiz” wish has already been eliminated from the list. The show has been announced and is already cast – sans…

Blog Searches

Looking for something to write about, I decided to do a little WordPress search again – inspired by two blog posts that I had seen on Twitter yesterday. First Heather linked this (Click on the link within the tweet and you will get to the blog post she quotes from): LOL! “All that said, the…

End-of-Week Blog Waffle

It’s Friday!!! I had a great week this week, despite a touch-and-go start caused by major depression over starting a serious diet. The false presumption that I would only be allowed horrible, boring food, had me in tears. Turns out, I actually get to eat really nice things… But the rush of news, pictures and interviews…

New Year, Some News, Old Probs

Hello and welcome to 2018. This was going to be only a test post, but it just so happens that I saw a news snippet that I can incorporate in today’s post. The Armitage Army on Instagram found this little bit:  I’m trying so hard not to buy magazines, but I’m on holiday so I…
