Dingle House

Hello all! So I just found out that “Slade is a surname of Saxon origin, meaning, variously at different times in different dialects, “a valley, dell, or dingle; an open space between banks or woods; a forest glade; a strip of greensward or of boggy land; the side or slope of a hill”” which is…

Another Week of Review

Hello all! So no fun talk about books or baking this week- I’m doing another review of a, frankly, terrible book that I read for class and so that is going to be my post for this week. Honestly, this book was a piece of work and I’m glad that I don’t have to read…

My Family Discord, My Cat, and My Reviews

Hello all! So while I had a blog post prepared for this week I realized that this week we only had to post our reviews so I’m saving the post. Mostly because as we get closer to finals I might not have time for anything other than papers and tears so I can then just…

Zelda Fitzgerald is a Babe Who Deserved Better

Hello all! So I am sorry to report no baking this week- school has kind of hit me over the head with a few things and I just haven’t had the time. But next week I will be sure to carve out time for it! Let me know if you guys have any recommendations; I…

The Girl with all the Gifts (Tart Crusts Notwithstanding)

Hello all! So while I meant to update last week, even though I didn’t have to, spring break got away from me and it ended up not happening. But shoulda, woulda, coulda- we are back this week and that’s all that matters! I hope you all had a lovely break from my weekly babble. Anywho!…

A Darker Shade of Chocolate

Hello all! This weeks blog is going to feature two of my favorite things: chocolate and fantasy fiction. I actually did make time to bake this week, even if it was stress baking and I put other stuff off to get it all done. It was slightly challenging considering all I got was “dark chocolate”…

This is a Fruit Salad Post

Hello all! So this post is going to kind of be like a fruit salad because I am going to talk about a couple of different things. I’m just kind of going to jump around and hope that it all comes together. But first off!  How’ve you all been? Everything good? All things workin’ out…

Sarah Kay is Bae

Hello all! So this week has been uneventful thus far which is surprising considering I haven’t had a “normal” week since this semester started. Knock on wood. (It’s like waiting for a shoe to drop, I swear to God.) Anywho! Other than mishaps, or lack thereof, I haven’t really been up to much. Doing a lot of…

“Tell The Wolves I’m-” CRYING

Hello all! This week has been much better than last! My cat is doing wonderfully despite her bad attitude (we’re still in shame cone mode until about Friday) and until this morning the week has been going smoothly enough. This morning I locked my keys and backpack in my car because I’m a distracted shmuck…

Cat Butts and Gothic Lit.

Hello all! This past week has been kinda gnarly – more hours at work, no days off, and my cat went ahead and somehow got a giant hole in her ass cheek so it has been a bit of a runaround, to say the least. I am happy to say that Prynne is 100% fine, contrary…

Fun Homes Never Did Sit Right With Me

Hello all! So for my first post, I figured I would write about something that I was at least interested in, and what a better way to start a reading blog than with a book with fun already in the title? This is partially what directed me to Alison Bechdel’s “Fun Home” out of everything on my…
