Celebrity crush: Tom Hardy

My celebrity crushes changes every year. Last year, it was Jason Momoa aka Khal Drago from “Game of Thrones.” This year my celebrity crush is Tom Hardy. Recently, I watched the movie “Warrior” . . . twice. I also stayed awake both times, which rarely happens. Maybe if he hadn’t been wearing a mask asContinue reading “Celebrity crush: Tom Hardy”

Irrational fear of . . . Clowns. Funny and creepy.

My most irrational fear is a fear of clowns. It even sounds funny. I’m not sure when it started. My mom collected clowns for many years. I’m so glad she moved on to collecting lighthouses.

Part 1 of Books Worth a 2nd Read: Tess of the d’Urbervilles

While on summer vacation about seventeen or eighteen years ago, I read “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” by Thomas Hardy. I remember that it was the only book that ever made me cry. I was pretty cynical even at a young age. So I was surprised that a book would bring me to tears. I wantedContinue reading “Part 1 of Books Worth a 2nd Read: Tess of the d’Urbervilles”

Delorean in your driveway: Where would you go?

How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something, but to become someone. –Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel If a Delorean time machine appeared in my driveway, I would go back to the 1920’s in Paris, France. It would be interesting to see the House of Chanel in the beginning. I would really loveContinue reading “Delorean in your driveway: Where would you go?”
