Ronan Boyle and the Bridge Of Riddles by Thomas Lennon & Illustrated by John Hendrix

I bought this book because there was a giant advertisement with Thomas Lennon and his beautiful dog playing in target while I was in the book section. After taking a glance at it’s inside cover and realizing that it was a middle grade book written specifically for me, I figured I needed to buy it. Only on the way home did I realize that there was a review of it from Weird Al Yankovich on the back, which further solidified my feelings.

Alright Fangirls, it’s the last Friday before I leave. While there are some last minute things that aren’t packed yet, I have a pretty final idea of what is coming with my for my trip to NY and then overseas.

Ex Officio Travelers Undies

Fangirls! As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I’m beginning to hear the sounds of my childhood ringing in my ears. I come from a family very heavily involved in bagpiping, and of course St. Patrick’s Day has always been a big celebration & a day busy with gigs to play with the pipe band that we belong to. But of course, Celtic, Irish & Scottish music was always ever present in my house year round. So, to bring you all into part of my world a bit & to get you in the mood for the upcoming holiday, I’ve compiled some of my favorite songs that pair well with this theme, as well as a bit of history into the holiday.
