I’m on a massive Scnadinavian horror kick right now. It started when I watched Rare Exports and Let The Right One In back to back.
Currently I am reading a book called The Ritual by Adam Nevill. I am now in love with a man named Adam Nevill. There’s death and destruction and black metal and Old Gods. It’s like everything I love wrapped up in a nasty little literary package.
If only there were wine.
I’m fast running out of scary things from Scandinavia though. Short of booking myself a trip to the boreal forest (and believe you me, I have been pricing it out) do you guys have any recommendations???
Also. I went to two Frank Turner shows this weekend, and despite not being metal or Scandinavian or even scary, they were utterly fantastic and I must recommend you go if you have the chance.
Somehow in the thrill and excitement of meeting OMIGODMYFRIENDCANDI I managed not to get a solo selfie. I believe she did though… *side eye*
I met Candi the way a bunch of us did- through our desperate and undying love of Night Owl by M Pierce. Much like many of us, I fell deeply in love with her as a result of her near-constant auto-correct fails.
You guys, she can make any benign conversation bizarrely inappropriate with a single word, and that is a feat. MELANIE Harlow even wrote it in to her Frenched series she was so âmused. Notice how my autocorrect did two things there, neither one inappropriate.
But once you get to chatting with her, you’ll discover even more interesting things about Candi. For example, and by example I mean 80, she has the greatest 90’s concert stories of anyone on earth. There is no one, and I mean NO ONE she hasn’t drank with. From Gwen Stefani to the Misfits. You want to know what any celeb from 95-05 is like IRL just ask her.
Really though, cause she’ll send you a voice message and then you can hear her cute Chicago accent.
Today is her birthday and I just want the world to know how amazing this friend of mine is. Candi is one of the funniest, sweetest, most loyal dead whores I have ever met, and if you think that is rude just google her GoT blogs and you will see that it is also very accurate.
In short, I love Candi Kane and you should too, so spend a little time on the Dirty Laundry blog, before reminding her that the Royals are way cooler than the Cubs. Just wait til her birthday is over first.
I really do. Jen blogs for Literary Gossip and she’s the dirty quotes queen. The very first time I met Jen, we got our noses pierced together. Because that is how you build a lasting friendship, right? Well it worked this time, anyway.
Jen lives about an hour and a half away from me in Colorado, but sometimes that’s just too far to drive so instead we met up in Savannah.
I spent 80% of my days snuggling her and that made my day 100% better.
