A Downton Demise

I have just finished watching the last episode of season three of Downton Abbey, and am writing this in tears. I am planning, also, how to murder Julian Fellows (the writer) and make it look like an accident.
Not to worry, my dears, I'm only joking. But if I do ever meet the creator of Downton, he will not come away unscathed.

I Apologize

I'm very sorry for the disturbance, bit I must speak again on Downton Abbey. In Mary's words to Edith, paraphrased:
"The only person who always thought the two of us were nice is gone."
Why? Why do they do this to us, us who are emotionally invested?

A Television Misery

I have just watched episode five of season three in that favourite Downton Abbey, and find myself most distressed.

A Bussed Return

I have, dear readers, returned from my trip to a very chilly state. It did not, I believe, cease snowing from the moment we arrived. How glad I am to be back in temperate weathers!
Please, my dears, forgive the lapse in posts and the brevity of this. I am, regrettably, quite exhausted, and will soon be retiring to my room with many blankets, a new book, and a cup of tea.

The Age of the Morning

Tonight, the eclectic authoress will find herself on a bus trip that might last until two in the morning. She understands that her dear readers might find themselves in a similar situation one day, and has decided to grant advice.
1. Bring music
This may be your only way to sleep. If you are unable to decide which music to bring, please visit my post "A Recommendation". It has quite a large range.
2. Sleep
Bring a sleep mask, and a music device. And, possibly, a blanket.
3. Watch movies.
If your bus is the type to have televisions, do bring a film or two. I suggest classics like "Finding Nemo", "Toy Story", and "The Princess Diaries". While possibly unacceptable for any other setting, they are most definitely bus trip movies.
4. Read
I'd suggest either something huge that people will be too scared to ask you about, like Jane Eyre, or something fluffy that you can half concentrate on and still talk with those around you.
5. Play cards
Perhaps KEMPS? That's a very good road trip game.
With ever so much love, the eclectic authoress herself.

Febuary Fourteenth

Happy Valentine's Day, my lovelies. May all go as you have planned, or else perfectly unpredicted.

A Paleolithic Find?

While visiting my library, as I do often on Saturdays, I came across a book by Robert Mash entitled How to Keep Dinosaurs. It details, quite faux-seriously, the ways in which all sorts of dinosaurs could be kept as house pets. I have decided on a pterodactylus elegans for myself. It is a gliding dinosaur about the size of a cat, and, according to the book, can be found in Germany.
I apologize for the low quality picture. That is quite out of character, I assure you.
With ever so much love,
The eclectic authoress

Why Couldn't it Be Butterflies?

Another lovely to make the Harry Potter fans happy:
Please do not wander off into a forbidden forest "following spiders" unless you are sure there is a wild Ford Angela hidden there as well.
