New Verity! Ep 93: The Zygon Invasion of the Zygons

This week we discuss another Peter Harness nail biter or, depending on which Verity is on the mic, that meh episode with Osgood. (Maybe one of us has shapeshifted!) Join Deb, Kat, Lynne and Tansy as we parse refugee metaphor, fangirls leveling up and underpants. It’s that sort of episode. And we miss Erika, who […]

So here’s a thing. Hits on my website spiked on the day the Anniversary special was broadcast. I guess y’all wanted to know what I thought, eh? Also, the search “who is the curator on Doctor Who” apparently led to my website. WHICH IS AWESOME. Because, yanno, I’m a curator in my day job. *g* […]

Hey, where have you been?

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

I’ve been on vacation. Two whole weeks of it, the longest non-Caitlin-medical-related break I’ve taken from my day job since my first day in January 2004. This also included a pretty decent decoupling from the internet. I only looked at my work email ONCE while I was away. Our family had a lovely road trip […]
