Do you love fun party games? Do you like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity? Do you feel awful when playing Cards Against Humanity? Do you love romance, especially fanfiction romance? Specifically, do you love to pair Steve Rogers with Bucky Barnes? Well I have a game for you!
Yesterday was a terrible, no-good, very bad day. Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong and I was having some serious allergy problems. But what do I do when I have a bad day? I try to turn it into a good day, or at least a bad day that ended on a good […]
Expat Ramblings: The Pub Quiz
My list is getting shorter and shorter: Not only did I finally go to Stonehenge, I also took part in my first pub quiz last week! It took a while to find the right place for the right day, but there we were on a Sunday night, young, carefree and ready for all kinds of […]
It’s Friday night! Let’s have some fun in this open thread, shall we?
I got an awesome text message today: “Want to go to the fair tonight?” Um, yes. Pierogies, fried Oreos, roast beef sandwiches, apple dumplin’s with freakin’ cinnamon ice cream. My stomach is already rumbling.
2012 is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. A lot of us make them every year, but how often do we actually follow through on them? Here are some tips to ensure that by this time next year, you can be proud of what you’ve accomplished, instead […]
So What’s on Your Summer Punch List?
Oh, summer. Every year it comes and goes, and I once again fail to do the things I wanted to do. I’m not even talking about big, arduous chores either; I’m talking about fun things that I tell myself every winter I will definitely be doing once the weather warms up. Farmers markets! Beach trips! […]
It took us long enough, but between three or four writers, four months and roughly 25,000 words, we made it from our first introduction to the best POTUS ever when he drove his bicycle into a tree in the pilot until he was caught in the middle of an assassination attempt in the finale. Let’s […]
We’ve hit some snafus with our BSG recap plan, so while we’re sorting it out over here in the Persephone offices, I thought I’d share a project I did way back when the show was on the air. Before BSG, I had no idea there was such a thing as fan art or fan fiction, […]
The Secret, Wonderful World Of Fanfic
There’s a topic which I’ve seen popping up here and there in our comments recently, and that topic is fanfic. I believe fanfic is an under-appreciated art form, and I think we should change all of that right here and now. It’s time for those of us that love to curl up with our computer […]
Hey guys, it’s that time of the year again, when we get to relax and watch the Grammys! Yay! So pull up your couch, get this party started, and hope there aren’t anymore disastrous performances like Taylor Swift’s cover of “Rhiannon”! Snacks are sure to be at hand and keep the wine bottle near. It […]
This is a reminder for you all to tune into the live blogging of the Grammy Awards and the Red Carpet. I will be live blogging and relaxing, so tune in! You will all have to bear with me on this momentous occasion as it is my first live blog! Yay! Get ready to get […]
Meghan is starting a brand-new and exciting job this week, so she’s taken the week away from writing for us. I miss her weekly forays into Polyvore, so like a good editor, I’m picking up the slack. What could be more appropriate than creating stylish outfits for some of my favorite Middlemarch Madness contenders?
Our love of Polyvore at Persephone is well documented. As a fun filler, I made a set for each of the editors. It’s important to note I only know what one of them looks like, so most of this is guessing. As is also well documented, I have no personal style of my own. My […]
We’re only posting until 3:30 today, and tomorrow we’re outta here at 1, but we still have two more daily goodies lined up for you this week. Today, in honor of Santa gluing the last tiny eyelashes on all the dolls he’s about to deliver, I found some great pictures of dolls on Flickr.
