Sinister + Squirrels

by meanlouise April 11, 2013 movies

Sinister scared me witless. In honor of the Washington Post’s squirrel week, here’s my review of Sinister, which has almost nothing to do with squirrels but almost everything to do with why I’m never going into our attic ever again.

Are you ready? Today is National Squirrel Appreciation Day

by meanlouise January 21, 2011 holiday cheer

Faith informed me that January 21, 2011 is “National Squirrel Appreciation Day.” Remarkably, I’ve never blogged about this. Or I have and I’ve forgotten and it’s in the lost portion of the archives.
