Why the Diablo 3 Wizard Is My New Favourite Thing

Why the Diablo 3 Wizard Is My New Favourite Thing

About a week ago, we had a friend over for the evening. Naturally, we booted up Diablo 3—it’s one of the few games we have that allows for three players.

What I Learned from Mad-Eye Moody

I was one of those lucky kids who got to read the Harry Potter books as I was growing up.

Celebrating a Love of Lego

The first present my boyfriend Shane ever got me was a set of three mystery minifigures from the Lego Batman Movie.

He may or may not have realized at the time just how solidly that would attach me to him.

I’m about 95% sure he knew this at the time, but Lego is—and always has been—my favourite toy. And today is the perfect day to talk about it. Continue reading “Celebrating a Love of Lego”
