Jess, Melbourne, 20's. Things I like may be found here (pretty pictures, quotes, recipes, occasional demented fangirlism).
Also occasional liveblogs of books by a completely amazing bastard called Dorothy Dunnett.

The Leatherdos is a hair clip that doubles as a multi-tool that combines 5 different tools in a tiny hair clip: screw-drivers, a wrench, a trolley coin, a ruler, and a cutting edge.

"Oh, Banco"

That’s-

Just-
That’s it guys I just, I’m done, I can’t anymore.

Kathi trying to stop calling Nicholas “M. de Fleury”. Kathi and Nicholas dealing with Icelandic volcanoes and no guide and understanding each other too well.

GUYS HELP I’M STARTING TO HAVE FEELINGS ABOUT THESE TWO AND THEIR RIDICULOUS RELATIONSHIP

I’ve said it before and I expect I’ll say it again- KATHI!

If something truly very marvelous does not lie in store for you I am going to stab things.

Please don’t die horribly in some fashion just to break me.

llamapunk:

IDDD4 will take place on Saturday 8th November 2014, when once again Dunnett Readers across the world will meet in homes, restaurants, pubs, parks, museums and other locations; and at 13.00 (1 pm) local time they will raise a glass to toast the Lady who started it all.

If you would like…

I am comprehensively up for this. I need to meet some of you tinyfandom darlings! Anyone know of anything going on in Victoria, Aus anywhere? I’m happy to host, but I live way out in the sticks, guessing Melbourne is probably better.

2 and much more importantly)

Say goodnight to the dark.
