Hiddleston Poetry Thursday III

This week, let’s enjoy Tom Hiddleston reciting “As I Walked Out One Evening” by WH Auden. “I’ll love you ’til the ocean is folded and hung up to dry…” You gotta hear that, people! It’s a little longer than the previous ones we’ve posted, but that just means more of the good stuff. Sit back and take it all in. Classics degree from Oxford...

Chicago North Spring Fling–Win our swag!

Chicago North Spring Fling–Win our swag!

This weekend, Carrie and I were super busy. We headed down to the Chicago suburbs to attend the Chicago North Spring Fling. I hadn’t known what to expect, because I’d never been to a regional conference, but I was so damn happy I went. I had a blast. It was such a great time. I’d say that I was totally going next year, except the Spring Fling is only held every other year! Must be all the extra time they need to make it...

So, I’ve struggled with my weight for a long time. I know I’m not the only one–I remember a period where Shannon Stacey was trying out Weight Watchers and had a weekly update post and there was a tiny tribe of us who’d chime in. Some did better than others. I’ve had my own run in with WW. I lost close to 40lbs on it about six years ago, and it’s a really solid program. Then I gained that same weight. Lost it...

This week, we’ll listen to Tom Hiddleston reciting the poem “May I Feel Said He” by e e cummings. It was the first time we had any idea as “Tom Hiddleston seducing us with milk-and-honey voiced poetry” actually existed. The video is a little distracting, but this clip has the best audio. You may have to watch it a few times, to appreciate both sight and sound… The man is completely unfair. But we love him...

It’s no secret on Twitter that Lorelie and I are huge fans of Tom Hiddleston. He’s not just Loki–although, admittedly, Loki is the character that turned us on to this incredible man. He’s not just Adam from the remarkable Only Lovers Left Alive. Neither is he just blood-soaked Coriolanus or the ultimate playboy-to-hero, Henry V, from the four-part Hollow Crown quadrilogy. On occasion he hangs out with Cookie...

Lorelie and I are movie junkies. Maybe I tip the scales  toward being more obsessed with films, but it’s pretty rampant. I know for me it has to do with still wanting to be told stories, just not in written form. It’s hard to be this deep in the business and still find myself transported by a book. Too much looking by the curtain at the wizard! This year, we’re looking for a couple films in particular. They include Maleficent,...
