I think this is my favorite SoCH yet. AHP! You are a delight--comparing Theda Bara (or her career anyway) to 50 Shades of Grey, LeBron James, Jennifer Anniston, that pic of Demi Moore on Twitter! What a terrific read.
Also, I've never seen a photo of Sarah Bernhardt before, what a knockout.
Furthermore, that photo of Bara with the skeleton is the best thing.
Okay phew, I can still pretend I'd have a chance. Although I will say that my favorite is the guy from Income Property, but I think he's married.
ARE the Property Brothers gay????

Yes please, I can never talk too much about the Betsy Tacy books. I've loved them my whole life and I'm 25 now and still want to be Betsy when I grow up.
Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops!
I'm not a Brewster--I'm a son of a sea cook!
Thank you so much for this series. It's been thought-provoking and informative and emotional, and I'm sad to see it go.
Seconding The Rook! I loved that book.
Reading Mark Read Song of the Lioness has brought me so much joy! I've never really considered those books in a critical way, just in an I Love Everything About This sort of way. It's been fun to think about them differently.

I have that comic taped up in my cube at work. It never fails to make me laugh.
