If You’re a Witcher Fan and Like the Music, This One’s for You!

Toss a coin to your Witcher.... Has anyone else watched and enjoyed The Witcher on Netflix? So awesome. Lots of swearing, some nudity and sex, lots of violence/gore, though, so be forewarned.

9 Teas Worthy of a Fellowship…of the Ring

I stayed up late one night--WAY too late, to be honest--and so I got very silly, as I am wont to do when I am very sleep-deprived. So I came to thinking: what tea would each member of the Fellowship of the Ring of Power be most likely to drink? Thus, we now have this… Continue reading 9 Teas Worthy of a Fellowship…of the Ring
