Becoming The Doctor

Last January, I was unemployed, which meant that I spent much of my time sitting around watching Netflix. It was during this era of unemployed Netflix watching that I was introduced to The Doctor.

For Your Consideration

Ladies: Halloween is almost upon us. Have you picked out your costume yet? If you answered “Yes” and are going as Slave Leia, you can stop reading this blog right now.

The Japanese Star Festival

Today was the official date of Tanabata, otherwise known as the Japanese Star Festival. Much like last year, I observed the occasion by tying a wish on some local bamboo shoots. Of course, it wasn’t written in Japanese like the picture to the right, but it wish was simple and inkeeping with the mythology behind […]
