In light of your concern…

Hi. I’m okay, thanks for checking. I know there were probably some of you who wondered if my corner of the universe had imploded since I didn’t make a September 22 Hobbit Day post. I am sorry about that. I also don’t have a great excuse. I think I blinked at the beginning of SeptemberContinue reading “In light of your concern…”

Blogiversary!

Drumroll, please, for BookmarkedOne’s second blogiversary! I’m still here! Woo! So first order of business is to say thank you to my 181 followers for putting up with my book snobbery and reading my late-night rants about dragons and tea (or sometimes dragons drinking tea). Thank you. Your comments usually wind up making my day.Continue reading “Blogiversary!”

Just Musician Things (June 22, 2021)

I’ve started thinking in music. I have not the slightest idea what this means. To be fair, I’ve always had a different relationship with music than most people. Music is as physical as it is auditory for me because I am a musician. I can feel the different places in my head, my throat, myContinue reading “Just Musician Things (June 22, 2021)”

Mind Magic: Escapism, Fantasy, and why it’s the best thing mankind invented.

By now you know I am convinced fantasy is the best and most beautiful genre of fiction in the world. But I don’t often talk about why. A while back (yes, concerts and work and university finals, I know. I’m awake now) I stumbled across Sarah Seele’s lovely post “They Found Loveliness Everywhere.” Do goContinue reading “Mind Magic: Escapism, Fantasy, and why it’s the best thing mankind invented.”

So as promised, here is my recipe for a matcha tea/latte, as requested by the lovely bloggers The Arbitrary Fairy and F.A. Eid.

The Liebster Award

A titanic thank-you to The Arbitrary Fairy for tagging me in my first ever blog award! I’m perhaps ridiculously pleased, but…I’m not even sure what a “Liebster” is. So I Googled it. I had a hunch it was German, like “lieblings” is favorite. Liebster translates as something closer to “darling” or “sweetheart.” Makes sense. SortContinue reading “The Liebster Award”

Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s

So I was up until almost 1:00 this morning watching The Return of the King. You could pretend to be surprised. The odyssey started on January 30th. This year a few loved ones and I decided to complete the challenge–to line it all up so Theoden says “So it begins” as the clock strikes twelve.Continue reading “Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s”

Land of Stories: A Reader’s Odyssey

Land of Stories by Chris Colfer. I have a love/hate relationship with this series. Literally. We have history. I’ve been reading it since 2012 when the first one made its way to my library. I can’t think of the series without remembering being up with a flashlight after midnight that Christmas Eve, reading page afterContinue reading “Land of Stories: A Reader’s Odyssey”
