Thirteen Hallows

Hello, my loves!

hal·low - \ˈha-(ˌ)lō\: to respect greatly

Alright, so the title comes from the new instalment of "The Scarifyers".
When a haunted chess set causes consternation at the British Chess Championships, and a horse magically materialises in Kettering Agricultural Museum, MI:13 are called to investigate.

Harry Crow (David Warner) and Professor Dunning (Terry Molloy) follow the trail of inexplicable happenings to an unremarkable terraced house in South Wales, home to the mysterious Mr Merriman (David Benson). He’s very old, and very mad; but is there more to Merriman than first appears?

Meanwhile, in the South West of England, famed archaeologist Ralegh Radford (Ewan Bailey) is on the verge of the greatest discovery of the age. Britain’s Tutankhamen, the press are calling it. But what he certainly isn’t expecting to unearth is boisterous 1400-year-old knight Glewlwyd Gafaelfawr (Gareth David-Lloyd).

As Crow and Dunning unravel an unlikely plot to resurrect Britain’s greatest-ever hero, the race is on to stop sinister forces at home and abroad from finding… THE THIRTEEN HALLOWS.
I bought the CD because Gareth David-Lloyd was lending his voice to a character. I definitely don't regret it. The story was funny, and partly about King Arthur. One of my favourites! Not only that, but today (the 8th), Gareth David-Lloyd was signing copies in London. If you're interested, you can read about the signing here. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.

Shopping haul under the cut.

Hey lovelies!

Been doing some more exploring around town. I bought a bus pass through school, so I've been trying to get my money's worth out of it! I really love how pretty everything is here, it's so different from the US!

There's a lake on campus, it's actually not far from my housing. There are also always a ton of birds and ducks hanging around.

I love the way the buildings and streets look. Also at night it gets quite foggy! It's a bit creepy, honestly. There were some places where it was so thick, you really couldn't see too far ahead, and there weren't any street lights, so it was ridiculously dark. Needless to say, my friend and I immediately turned around and walked the other way!

I also find it a bit funny, that at some intersections it tells you where to look! Very considerate though. A good reminder, seeing as it's the opposite in the US! Thank you, kind town, for looking out for your people!

I've got some palettes to review, so look for those!
See you next time!
