Favourite Christmas Music

Now that it's officially December, I feel like it's more socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music--although, let's be honest: I've been listening to it since November. This year, I'm having a few friends over for a small holiday get-together, so I've been even more focused on Christmas music than usual, trying to craft just ...

Favourite Christmas Movies

A few years ago, when I was still living in Waterloo, I had a multi-weekend Christmas movie marathon with two of my best friends. We each took a turn hosting and providing delicious treats. The tradition grew over the next few years, to the point where we watched at least one movie per week from ...

Favourite Halloween Episodes

(Programming note: I'll be a little light on content for the rest of the week as I prepare a number of Halloween posts for the next couple of weeks. Please bear with me!)

The Kings and I

Freaky Fall Flicks

My 13 (I swear that wasn't intentional) favourite scary movies for fall.

Taylor Swift: A Defense

(Or: Look What Taylor Made Me Do) So. Taylor Swift's problematically-named new single Look What You Made Me Do. I get it. That's the language of abusers. But... that's not the way that I initially saw it. Sure, when it was pointed out to me, I understood why people had a problem with that phrasing. ...

Best of 2016

  (Or: Well that was interesting...) A few weeks ago, I was at a company event that included a Reptilia booth that I was assigned to help with. I surprised myself by absolutely loving it, especially an adorable tarantula named Fluffy, who gives high fives and lets you pet her belly. When my boss came ...
