03. The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy (Feb 16) I most certainly did NOT read this entire book in one day while on my honeymoon. I had this one as an actual book and had been reading it for some time, while we listened to The Girl With All the Gifts together. I mentioned earlier that […]

August 31, 2011


If for no other reason than what happens around 2:10 on the below video, this is my favorite episode of Ask a Ninja, ever. I was listening to the podcast one night, driving back to my friend Kim’s house from work before I moved in with Kristi back at the end of 2008. It was […]
