Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 27 to Apr. 2, ‘017)

Happy Sunday, and happy April.  It is hard to believe we are already a quarter way through ‘017.  Going too fast.  Either way, glad to be through the tough cold months that start the year and into spring.  With that I offer a warm welcome to the Sunday Mise en Place, where everything with me…

5 Must See April ‘017 Movie

We are approaching summer and all of its glorious blockbusters.  Entering into the height of comic book adaptations over the next couple years.  But, a quick look at April… it’s kind of the eye before the storm.  We will have to push through the next 30 days as we eagerly await the early May release…

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

I kicked 2017 off with a bit of a reading slump.  Stemming from one hard-to-read, disappointing novel out of the ol’ TBR, the aftermath was a struggle to reinvigorate the need to read. I searched for methods to combat it, like rereading major favourite, Ready Player One, which worked temporarily.  But, going on an adventure…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 6 to 26, ‘017)

Well hello there.  It’s time to get this train moving again after an unexpected hiatus.  There is no better way for the G.O.B. to get going than a good ol’ Mise en Place.  I apologize to my friends and followers who have missed my posts.  After I threw an epic tea party in honour of Alice’s Adventures…

Top 10 Lost Items (that almost suck as bad as losing my phone)

Hello? Is this thing on? I have to say, it’s pure insanity how far technology zooms forward in a matter of years.  Recently my phone went on a vacation and stranded me with a shotty computer that I call ××××××; or computer.  Digging deep into my archives, I was able to retrieve an artifact.  A…

Madness

Fittingly in the middle of Wonderland Week, my world has turned to madness.  Not only is my computer out-of-order, but my phone decided that yesterday would be a great day to try its new life out as a brick.  Unfortunately, my phone company is trying to give me the run around and making life much…

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.” “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice. “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.” Welcome to Wonderland Week, a whole wingding for…

Sunday Mise en Place (Feb.27 to Mar. 5, ‘017)

It’s Sunday again?  It’s like it’s Sunday every week.  Which means it is time once again for the Green Onion Blog Mise en Place.  A weekly post on the what’s new, what’s happening, and what’s coming.  For a week that I wasn’t sure how to approach seven days ago, this ended up being a pretty…

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Running a little late on this, back on February 12, I was nominated by the wonderful Lindsay Acland for the Sunshine Blogger Award.  Thank you Lindsay, I love your blog, and I appreciate all the support you show me.  I will do my best to answer some of your tough questions, and sorry for the belated response….
