Hiddleston Poetry Thursday III

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...

Hiddleston Poetry Thursday II

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...

Hiddleston Poetry Thursday I

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.

On occasion he hangs out with Cookie...

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,...

Halloween has come and gone…

But the candy is still here! Piles and piles and oh my god, PILES of it. My oldest son has his candy in a laundry basket. He ranged farthest (within our neighborhood) and stayed with it the longest, so he’s got the biggest haul. It started to rain toward the end of the trick or treating period, but he stuck it out, and it turned out his last block or so of houses gave him great, heaping handfuls of candy. His haul weighed in at 11.8...

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I fell 215 feet at 62 miles per hour. Personally, I’m beginning to think roller coaster parks are the second best invention of the modern age, next to the internet. (Okay, maybe third after cars.) My family has had summer passes to Six Flags Great America, just outside Chicago, and lemme tell ya, we used them to the max. I packed lots of coolers with sandwiches and puddings for a dinner break, but we made the most of it. We bought the...
