Happy Birthday to me! 400 followers & a tag!

It’s my birthday! Also, I reached 400 followers a few days ago! ALSO, FANTASTIC BEASTS CAME OUT TODAY AND I GET TO SEE IT IN LESS THAN 12 HOURS. Also, I was tagged by Heather @ The Sassy Geek in the Get to Know Me Tag, which she did at 400 followers, and which I am now doing at 400 followers! What a wonderful world it is!

Some include “Mr. Blue Sky” by ELO, “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant” by Billy Joel, basically the entire “Rumors” album by Fleetwood Mac (do I sound like a 40-year-old woman yet?), “Roll Away Your Stone” by Mumford & Sons, “Furr” by Blitzen Trapper…so many more….

  3. Congrats!!! 🙂 You’ve reminded me how long it’s been since I’ve seen Beauty and the Beast – time for a Disney marathon I think… And how exactly does training to be a librarian work? I know you need some sort of qualification, but are you working there already?
