Bookmarked Update/Book Haul

So it’s been two weeks since I promised I was back from Ye No-Blogging Land. In my defense, all that running off of matcha tea, music, and pure spite energy may have finally caught up with me. I got sick. Yeah. It wasn’t fun. Which is why I’ve been doing a lot of nothing. DrinkingContinue reading “Bookmarked Update/Book Haul”

Dragonfest Recap, Part II

So teakettles and dragon scales! Off we go again on Part II of my incredibly belated Dragonfest 2021 recap. Let’s just pretend it’s going to be well worth the wait. To set the scene (for those readers who have understandably forgotten): It is October 31. I am at one of my favorite places in theContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap, Part II”

The Sword Umbrella

So most of the time I think my life is pretty boring. I get up in the morning, have tea and a bagel, classes, violin rehearsals, work, I read books, cry over Silmarillion fanart. Okay, mostly boring. Except for the violin parts. Ordinary life is ordinary life. So I don’t post about it, because whoContinue reading “The Sword Umbrella”

Dragonfest Recap

So I was in the news again. Not because I robbed a bank or anything, although I am wearing a mask that hides most of my face. A photographer happened to catch me and my violin in the company of a pirate. Sword-shopping, if you want to know. It’s Dragonfest 2021 recap time, everyone. SoContinue reading “Dragonfest Recap”

Life off the Page Update

I met the Goblin King today. And Queen Elizabeth I. And milady Fleur, whom we usually call the Squirrel. And the Knights of Mayhem, and at least four Plague doctors, and a giant crow (or was it a raven?), and a dragon named Lily and someone who looked like Robin Hood… …there was also aContinue reading “Life off the Page Update”

Renaissance Fair (Part II!)

It was sort of like getting your birthday twice in a year. I hadn’t expected to make it to any fair this year, and here I was, out of the blue, going to two, one after the other. The week in between? I’ll admit it, there wasn’t the same giddy adrenaline shock of the firstContinue reading “Renaissance Fair (Part II!)”

Nefarious Adventures Return (Renaissance Fair!)

So here it is! Belated but as promised. Far be it from me to end my Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul on such an enigmatic note and never explain myself. Hold on to your dragons’ tails and buckle your Viking helmets, we’re officially in Renaissance faire season! (cue BookmarkedOne distant screams of delight) I have mentionedContinue reading “Nefarious Adventures Return (Renaissance Fair!)”

The Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul

Nefarious. That was our code word. No, we weren’t burgling a dragon or planning a spy mission. But we were sneaking off on a delicious adventure. The Epic Library Book Sale. That’s right! Twice a year, one of the big warehouse rooms at the fairgrounds is filled to the brim with books, and whoever hasContinue reading “The Bi-Annual Epic Book Haul”

Concert Recipe

Ingredients 1 Violin (or orchestral instrument of choice) too much rosin on the bow if you’re nervous Is the bow hair tight enough now? No, it’s too tight. Now? Maybe. Is it bouncy? Does it bounces? 1 shot caffeine 2 shots adrenaline (administer both caffeine and adrenaline with caution, like peppermint oil or lemon zest)Continue reading “Concert Recipe”

Matcha Tea

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. I know it’s been a while since I mentioned it in my Liebster Award post. I wanted to include pictures and I’m not all that fabulous with a camera. So here goes!Continue reading “Matcha Tea”
