Whitney Watches: Agent Carter “The Blitzkrieg Button”

After taking a week off for the State of the Union, Agent Carter is back! Which means, it’s time for another vlog! (Which yes, I did film, edit and upload late at night ....more

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.03 “Time and Tide”

If it’s Wednesday, then it means it’s time for another edition of Whitney Watches! As a reminder, these videos are meant for regular viewers of the series – since I talk about current character arcs and where the show might be headed. It isn’t a recap video! ...more

Whitney Watches: Agent Carter 1.01 & 1.02

It’s been far too long, but I’m back with another vlog – and it’s about Marvel’s Agent Carter – the 7 part television event (that’s a fancy name for mini-series) focusing on Peggy Carter. Last night’s two hour premiere was made up of two episodes, and the above video are my mostly coherent thoughts.

On the Road.

This holiday, we found ourselves on the road – doing the every other year Christmas drive out to my family. You see, shortly after TheBoy and I were engaged, we arranged with our families to switch holidays with them. One year we’ll spend Thanksgiving with his parents and Christmas with mine, then the next year it’s Thanksgiving with my parents ....more

Happy Holidays!

I mentioned in an earlier post that my microSD card bit it before I could get photos from our vacation off it. Which is a shame. We came home with a picture of the four of us- which as any parent will tell you is rare ....more

Listen.

My last blog post… I’m not happy with it. It was a reaction, and I was upset. I don’t normally blog about things when I’m that upset ....more
