Hiddleston Poetry Thursday III

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Free Time | 0 comments

This week, let’s enjoy Tom Hiddleston reciting “As I Walked Out One Evening” by WH Auden. “I’ll love you ’til the ocean is folded and hung up to dry…” You gotta head that, people! It’s a little longer than the previous ones I’ve posted, but that just means more of the good stuff. Sit back and take it all in. Classics degree from Oxford FTW!

Hiddleston Poetry Thursday II

This week, we’ll listen to Tom Hiddleston reciting the poem “May I Feel Said He” by e e cummings. It was the first time I had any idea as “Tom Hiddleston seducing me with milk-and-honey voiced poetry” actually existed. The video is a little distracting, but this clip has the best audio. You may have to watch it a few times, to appreciate both sight and sound… The man is completely unfair. But we love him...

Chicago North Spring Fling

My Katie Porter writing partner, Lorelie Brown, and I will be attending Chicago North RWA’s Spring Fling Conference, to be held in Chicago between April 25-26. This is exciting becuase it’s only held every two years, I get to see a ton of friends who’ve scattered to the publishing winds, and it’s within driving distance. That means far less strategizing when it comes to deciding what promo items to pack! Lorelie and I...

Hiddleston Poetry Thursday I

It’s no secret on Twitter that I’m a huge fan of Tom Hiddleston. He’s not just Loki–although, admittedly, Loki is the character that turned me on to this incredible man. He’s not just Adam from the remarkable Only Lovers Left Alive. Neither is he just blood-soaked Coriolanus or the ultimate playboy-to-hero, Henry V, from the four-part Hollow Crown quadrilogy. On occasion he hangs out with Cookie Monster. And he...

Movies and Scarlett Johansson

I am a movie junky. More like, I’m obsessed with films. It’s pretty rampant. It has to do with still wanting to be told stories, just not in written form. It’s hard to be this deep in the business and still find myself transported by a book. Too much looking by the curtain at the wizard! This year, I’m looking for a couple films in particular. They include Maleficent, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Lucy. The lone...

Ice Cream Tradition

Posted by on Apr 14, 2014 in Free Time, News | 2 comments

Every year since I was eighteen, I’ve had this tradition with myself. I pick the first day of spring where it really feels like spring, and I eat a special ice cream treat to celebrate. Through the years this has mostly been a personal tradition. I distinctly remember eating a Wall’s Magnum bar on a train platform in England, and pushing a double stroller down the road from a Walgreens while trying to keep my ice cream sandwich was...
