I’ve Got Moxie #16: 7 Lessons from ‘Lark Rise to Candleford’

[Spoiler alert! This post will have spoilers from the show.] Rory and I recently finished watching the BBC series Lark Rise to Candleford. It had been on my "to watch" list for years, but I waited to suggest it to Rory until we were in need of another good series to watch. I don't know how I keep getting him to agree to watch British corset dramas, but I just hope my luck there holds.

Bristol Box #14: For Those Who Like the 1960s ‘Batman’ TV Show

For some people of my generation, and the generation that came before mine (along with some people who just like campy television), the 'Batman' show from the 1960s was the height of superhero television. We never took it too seriously, but enjoyed the humor, both intentional and unintentional. So, if you, like me, are still a fan, this week's Bristol Box will be one you can't miss.

I’ve Got Moxie #15: Tidying Up

Over the past couple of years, there has been a big fuss about Marie Kondo's book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. People seem to be so taken with the thing. Does it contain the magic formula to getting and keeping my house tidy?

Olio #14: Jane Austen Mad Libs*—Sense and Sensibility

Jane Austen Mad Libs*. Because why not. This was a very popular post last time (when I did a Mad Libs-type activity for Pride and Prejudice), so this time around, it's Sense and Sensibility! This book was Jane Austen's first published work, and was attributed to her only by saying it was "By a Lady".

I've been gingerly beginning my exploration of the world of fountain pens. Well, on an extremely amateurish level. Mostly, I just like fancy writing, and dislike my own writing. Somehow, a fountain pen will make my handwriting gorgeous and fancy and flowing. Right? That's how this works, right?

Things to Love #13: Webcomics

You no longer need to be chummy with a newspaper or a newspaper syndicate to have a comic strip. Anyone can draw their art, or make their humor, and just put it out there on the web for all to enjoy. Webcomics are one of many areas where the freedom of the internet has generated some great work. Here are my favorites.

I’ve Got Moxie #13: On Being Painfully Shy

When I was a kid, I was painfully shy. I'm still shy, but I'm mature enough to suck it up when I have to, and talk to people. But when I was a kid, it was a different story.
