    I placed holds on all the copies of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight at the library. When one of them finally arrived, I was eager to get home and relive the adventure, expecting a thrilling time. What I wasn’t […]

    He looked left and right and left again, before setting his eyes on a small blonde girl in pigtails. He bent down to her eye level and she stared unwaveringly back into his cold grey eyes. “You,” he nearly […]

    Odds and ends filled her “man dror.” yes, women have those too, and hers was filled with hair dye, tools, and foreign currency, in case she ever traveled across the ocean again.
