Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.
The world is quiet here.
I like fandom things, silly humorous things, reptiles, food, gemstones, space, theatre, games, history, and books.
Fandomy bits: Harry Potter (proud Slytherin), Doctor Who, Sherlock, Cabin Pressure, The League of Gentlemen (and lots of other British comedy), Top Gear, Disney, StarKid, Game of Thrones, Marvel... and with other bits occassionally thrown in.
Favourite books: Harry Potter (always), A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Book Thief, The Diary of Anne Frank, John Green, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, Perks of Being A Wallflower...
Favourite films: Harry Potter (Philopsher's Stone and Prisoner of Azkaban), Mary Poppins, Alice In Wonderland (Disney 1951), Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Cornetto Trilogy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 10 Things I Hate About You, Moulin Rouge...
My heroes are Mark Gatiss and John Finnemore. I have met them both... and made a fool of myself both times.

THERE'S NOTHING FOR YOU HERE!
Ravelry contributor Anke Klempner used her creative knitting skills to realize something that we’ve long suspected: teapots look a lot like snails.
Anke designed an adorable teapot cozy that accentuates the teapot’s resemblance to a snail’s shell and adds a pair of eye stalks to complete the transformation. They really do look like cute snails, but with the added bonus that these charming mollusks won’t eat your garden plants.
You know what’s awesome? A donkey lamb taxi. That sounds like a band name. Hey, when’s the next Donkey Lamb Taxi show?
When sheep herders in the hills of Lombardy, Italy need to move their flocks toward better grazing land, the wee lambs get a little help keeping up with their woolly family. Helpful donkeys are fitted with sets of special lamb-sized pouches. It’s ridiculously cute and cozy mass transit in the form of live taxis who are content to graze right along side the sheep.
