Puns And Feminism: Why I Love Buffy

Puns And Feminism: Why I Love Buffy

I am the same age as Buffy The Vampire Slayer. We both date back to 1996, which explains why I managed to avoid all but a handful of spoilers for the show, to the surprise of my older friends. “I was a baby when it started,” I say. “That tends to prevent you hearing important plot points.” “You were a baby?! How old are you again?” Ah. Age gaps. Gotta love them. I have other things in common with the…

Learning By Example (TCWT)

Learning By Example (TCWT)

The monthly Teens Can Write Too! blog chain is back again, this time with a slightly more traditional prompt than last month — although still not one that’s easy to answer. “What works of fiction have taught you by example, and what did they teach you?” As Engie pointed out, this is a slightly vague question.

Towel Day Roundup

Towel Day Roundup

Did you celebrate Towel Day yesterday? No? I’m shocked. I’m sure you’ve got an excuse. “I can’t take a towel to work! People would give me weird looks!” Or how about this one? “I might get it dirty…” I would like you to know that I: (a) Carried a towel with me the entire day – on the bus to and from school, in lessons, at ballet class (except when actually dancing) (b) Sat on my towel at the bus…
