Did it really take me a year to write this post? Yes, so let’s get to it. Navigating Penn Station on any day is a struggle per se. Navigating it while running on fumes and carrying three heavy bags is the plot of the next Mission Impossible movie. Keep an eye out for it in […]

Most of this post was typed months ago and left to rot in my drafts but as I’m now stuck at home, pondering the meaning of life while the world as we know it is on the brink of despair, I thought it might be nice to relive those fabulous ten days. I think it’s […]

I have been in a rotten mood for the several days now. I first blamed the lack of decent sleep, then I blamed hormones imbalance, before I settled on a severe case of the lockdown blues. It was only after I had a look at my calendar that I realised that today marks the anniversary […]

I am not going to spend any time tonight writing about politics, the downfall of economy, the abysmal disdain towards human rights of the current President of the US or bloody Brexit. No. None of that. I […]

Let’s talk about… Kate Mulgrew’s Born With Teeth I have to admit I am a teensy bit biased when it comes to Kate Mulgrew. Not only is she my favourite Starfleet Captain, but I have a thing for opinionated redheads. I came into the Star Trek universe barely two years ago, having abhorred anything science-fiction […]
