Popular TV/Movie Characters Sorted into Hogwarts Houses

What if your favorite television/movie character were to attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Where would the Sorting Hat assign them?

Last Week, I…

Quit breastfeeding. Had to choose between quitting cold turkey and gradually quitting (by cutting out one pumping/nursing session every couple of days). Decided that engorgement pain is preferable to the razor-sharp pain from thrush I get every time my right breast is emptied. Smelled like cabbage soup as I stuffed my bra with cold cabbage leaves […]

Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. This picture of Turkzilla was too good to pass up. Courtesy of Boing Boing. There are many, many things to be thankful for this year.

All o’Y’all Look Alike

An old coworker used to joke to me that all Asians look alike to her. While some may find this offensive, I knew that it was all in jest and chided right back that all white people look the same to me. I think that being Asian myself has helped me become familiar with specific […]

Darth Vader vs. Lord Voldemort
