God Is Not In Your Phone

Procrastination is one of my specialties. I am very good at it. It is something I do often. Day after day, I try to fight it, but it always comes back to me. Plans and lists fall by the wayside. I lose days and hours, every intention falls leisurely from my mind. My eyes are…

Peanut Butter Brownies

I had such an urge to bake something today – that’s what you get when you’re stuck at home and have a tendency to watch a lot of baking shows – but I realized I only had a limited amount of ingredients in my pantry. I saw a box of brownie mix hiding in the…

Movie Review: Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears

Fearless, feminist icon and glamorous lady detective, Phryne Fisher, has returned from an extended hiatus for an all-new, high-flying adventure. Rejoice! Our favorite flapper is back.

As Far As I Could Get

As Far As I Could Get by Florence + The Machine In the celestial vaults, I drew a bedraggled breath. Because I am unloved, I went as far as I could get. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time. Past the museum of death and the madman yelling answers. I sail on new…

Magic

I’ve always been enthralled with magic. From a young age I sought it out, looked for it in every book that I had read and in every face that I had known. Captivated by tales of enchantment, I continually searched for stories about monsters, myths, and legends. I’ve always identified with the homely heroine who…

Spring

It’s snowing. . . again. I’ve been watching the modest blizzard from my window for the past few hours as it covers the ground and paints the trees. It’s almost April. I thought we were done with this! I’ve already put my mittens, scarf, and boots away. The reappearance of the white, freezing flurry is…

Do Not Go to the Winchester

Luckily, our friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are here to help us laugh and relax. They’ve come up with the perfect plan. See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on…

The Creator

I am a world builder and a daydreamer. I am a storyteller. I am a writer. I am the designer of a million lovely landscapes. I am the author of a million ambitious scenes. I am the creator of a million imaginary situations, places where my heart and my characters live and breathe.

Rain

It’s been raining on and off for two days, but the warmth and the mist feel like magic. Watching from my window as a downpour bathes the earth seems to wash away my fear. The acute pain of hopelessness floats away. It is a renewal, a rebirth. My mind, which usually swirls swiftly like a…

What Are You Watching?

Two weeks at home, without much to do, means that you can catch up on some films and shows that have been waiting impatiently on your To Be Watched list. Three days in to required and extremely necessary social distancing and I’ve already sorted through three episodes of The Witcher, a much-needed re-watch of Moulin…

No Strings Attached

One of my most intense fangirl relationships throughout my teenage years had been with the band *NSYNC. During our courtship I had wallpapered my bedroom from floor to ceiling with posters and pictures, my shelves overflowed with assorted merchandise and paraphernalia. I had stuffed animals, buttons, books, dolls, magnets, t-shirts, Christmas ornaments, pillows, and blankets….

I Wish I Was the Moon

“I Wish I Was the Moon” by Neko Case “Chimney falls and lovers blaze. I thought that I was young. Now I’ve freezing hands and bloodless veins as numb as I’ve become. I’m so tired. I wish I was the moon tonight. Last night I dreamt I’d forgotten my name, ’cause I sold my soul,…
