A few of the amazing, cute, and puzzling things I discovered while I was away:

Steepster
It’s social media. About tea.

For those too lazy to click the link, you can “Write a tea journal, see what others are drinking and get recommendations from people you trust.”

I may or may not be toying with the idea of signing up.

The most adorable pirate kitten ever
I love color-pointed cats. Doubly so when they are kittens. And this poor little guy just as too much character to resist. And the fact that his name is “Sir Stuffington?” Yeah, I’m just gonna go turn into a little puddle of goo over here.

Faking Sanity
It’s a used bookshop. And a yarn store. And a cafe. And quite possibly the holy grail, but I’m reserving judgement since I haven’t actually been there.

Yet.

Sleepy Hollow
This is my new favorite show. Period. If you want to know why, here is a post I put up on Tumblr just after the 2nd episode:

How often do we get a female lead that is a minority, who is completely badass without being completely masculinized as well?  Abby is strong, smart, and practical. She’s pretty but clearly her appearance plays second fiddle to her work. She’s willing to entertain the idea of the supernatural, but is still actively looking for ways to debunk it.

And on top of that, we’ve got a fantastic male character that while he is capable to kicking butt, his first reaction is always to outsmart the bad guy using as little brute force/direct contact as possible.

For the time being, they each have their own love interests (we’ll see how long that lasts, since this is Hollywood we’re talking about), but there is still a good tension/chemistry between them, even if they are completely platonic (for the moment).

I’ve also decided that I’m going to review each episode as it airs (because I totally need MORE things to do with my time, right?). The first one is here. Episode two should be up shortly.

And on Friday, you’ll get to see a few of the things I’ve been working on.
