Showing posts from March, 2015


So rather than write about In Our Image like a good history blogger, I have been watching Grimm EVERY SINGLE NIGHT on Amazon Prime for the past two weeks. Season 5 premiers tomorrow night and I am trying to catch up. I am almost done with season one. I am completely hooked and I can't seem to do anything else. Well, that's not completely true, I am in the process of re-reading the parts of In Our Image that I am looking to write about. Yes, I read, re-read and cope by binge TV watching.

Tonight is that start of March Madness, so while the family watches Kentucky, I blog. Go Cats!

The premise of the show is about a homicide detective, Nick Burkhardt, who has the ability to see monsters in his midst. He finds out after some time that this ability is a gift that his family has passed on for many generations. His ability came into being with the passing of his aunt.  In their past, members of his family known as Grimm have hunted monsters. These hunters have chronicled meeting ea…


While we are waiting for me to finish Mr. Karnow's history of the Philippines and I am so very close (10 pages to go). I have to tell you guys about a gift I ordered for a friend. I have been waiting to use this service for "the one" just because I am tickled by the thought of getting gourmet chocolates through the mail. I am also a chocoholic on the wagon that can eat a slice of chocolate cake covered in Nutella (yes, I have actually done this). Since I can't run all the time to counteract this addiction, I keep myself from eating it but by giving it to other people.  My friend recently had to say goodbye to a pet so she became "the one".

According to the shipment tracking, she hasn't received it yet so hopefully she is not reading this right now. I ordered her a box of chocolate via Chococurb. I learned of it from a Huffington Post Blogger, Maria Adcock and her blog post.

So anyway, she has yet to receive it but hopefully she enjoys (and shares).
