Weekend Diversions: Grey’s Gossip, Gay Superheros and Gadget Lust

I’m giving you a little bit of everything today with nothing really related to the next thing. And I tried to make them all alliterative and stuff to SEEM related, but trust me, they’re not. First up, if you know me, you know this has been front and center in my mind lately – Grey’sContinue reading “Weekend Diversions: Grey’s Gossip, Gay Superheros and Gadget Lust”

Book Review: Wicked: Witch & Curse

Which Chronicles of Narnia Character are you? Susan Pevensie You are Susan. Very practical and no-nonsense, though you can become less so with persuasion.
