It’s been awhile since I’ve actually written a post. Now that I have a job where my main function is writing ALL DAY, it’s definitely harder to find time and energy to update regularly.
But the new Les Misérables movie deserves a post of its own.
I’ll warn you now, this will contain spoilers! So if you’re not familiar with the musical or even if you are and still want to be surprised by certain things, I’d stop reading now.

Who’s ready for series 2?
As you know, my friend Jessica and I came up with our own drinking game for BBC’s Sherlock and it was tested on New Year’s Eve (quite successfully).
Well, this Sunday (May 6th) Sherlock Series 2 will finally air here in the US and I wanted to present our new set of rules to accompany the new series. (Yep, we’ve already seen them. Don’t ask)
Usually I recommend waiting until you’ve already seen each episode at least once before reading the new rules and give them a go but if you don’t mind some possibly spoilery bits ahead of time, please feel free to continue reading!

I’ve been following the news and opinions surrounding the shooting of Trayvon Martin lately and there’s one particular item about it that I feel the need to address.
There are claims that Zimmerman may have a legal stance with the “Stand Your Ground” law that Florida (and several other states including Tennessee) has. This particular law is an off-shoot of the Castle Doctrine.
A quick bit of background for those that don’t know:

A recent conversation has inspired me to break out another round of my strange and unusual fictional crushes. You’ve already been shown some of the stranger ones (round 1 and round 2) but this one might have several folks nodding in agreement with my choices. Well, with 2 of my 3 choices. I doubt there’s anyone who will agree even slightly with the last one.

Holy crap. I’ve made 86 Jayne Hats. I’m about to cast on #87 later today or tomorrow.
I’m also working on a cabled hat for a friend .
Not to mention I finished up (well, almost finished) the 2 March squares for the Shlanket (Sherlock Blanket) KAL. All that’s left is to stitch on the “221B” to the Door square.
