Baby Miriam Judges Your Life

Baby Miriam Judges Your Life

I love baby photos. I think they’re absolutely hilarious. Pre-2000 Miriam was completely adorable. She had a very expressive face and a tendency to look concerned, upset, or judgemental about pretty much everything. So this post is in celebration of that. For the students currently revising for exams who don’t have time to read a long text-based post, and everybody else who wants something primarily formed of images — here’s a summary of my life before the millenium, with a…

YA Tropes, Pleasantly Inverted

YA Tropes, Pleasantly Inverted

Is this — could this be — is this a post that isn’t about books? Ha. Nope, it’s not. Get used to it, because I like talking about books. Recently, Engie @ Musings From Neville’s Navel convinced me to read the Skulduggery Pleasant series. Well, I’m not entirely sure if she convinced me directly, but she certainly wrote a number of blog posts encouraging people to do so, and whether or not she directed these comments at me personally, I…

Answering The Internet

Answering The Internet

I find it very entertaining to look at the search terms that have led people to my blog. They’re not nearly as funny as they used to be, because there aren’t as many of them — what with privacy settings and incognito windows and stuff, a lot of them are hidden beneath the heading of “unknown search terms”. But there are always some that really make me question how people ended up here. Most of my recent ones seem to…

Making Stories: Paris (2)

Making Stories: Paris (2)

Our second day in Paris dawned exactly as every other residential school trip dawns: to the sound of multiple alarms on different students’ phones being muffled by pillows, smothered with a sleepy hand, or abused violently by sleep-deprived teenagers desperate for another few minutes of peace. Or, if they belong to me, completely ignored as I slept through it entirely, waking up several minutes later when somebody else’s alarm went off. From there it continued with a disappointing breakfast and…

Sherlock Walks The Streets Of London

Sherlock Walks The Streets Of London

I’ve done a lot of weird things in my life. Leaving aside research, novel plotting, and video chats with Charley, I’ve had various surreal experiences – going to see the Hunger Games dressed as Sherlock, going to Camden Market in steampunk cosplay, and going to school on several own-clothes days dressed as a pirate. But there was one day that completely takes the biscuit for the weirdest thing I have done so far in my life. We called it “Operation:…

Tumblr Likes It

Tumblr Likes It

I have a band. We started out as a trock band, but the first few songs I wrote were about Torchwood, so we decided to branch out. Then I saw Sherlock and realised that I needed to write songs about it and I didn’t want to have a separate band and the others agreed. And basically we ended up becoming  band who write songs about things that Tumblr likes. We’re called Forever Reblogging and we haven’t yet had a rehearsal…

My Life According To My Music

My Life According To My Music

So, take a music player of some description, put it on shuffle, and answer these questions with whatever comes up. I’ve done this already with some hilarious results and some boring ones, now I’m going to do it again. And I encourage you to do it next time you’re short of blog post ideas! I have a lot of film music on my MP3 :/ From this we can see that my mp3 player is incredibly biased. There wasn’t a…

FASEQs Part 1

It’s time for Frequently Asked Search Engine Questions! Yeah! :) Sorry, but I’ve had too many funny ones recently. I will probably end up doing this about once a month, since they’re just too funny. shoes thudding on the floor Oh, I’m sorry to hear about your affliction. I’ve heard that shoe racks are a good investment, and don’t cost too much. If this is beyond your means, please try taking your shoes off carefully and placing them in a…
