The Story of a 5′ 1 1/4″ -er and her Cereal

“Daaaaaaaad! Where is the cereal!? Mom? Is anyone awake?”

It’s an average late-start morning before school. I finally have time to eat breakfast…and everything is out of reach and no one is awake to help me. 

 As I stand on my tippy toes, I think I can see the box of the delicious Cinnamon Toast Crunch on the very top shelf of the pantry. (Seriously…why?)

A Trip to the Pandorica Restaurant

Please excuse me while I freak out and jump on the next plane to New York.

Geekritique

Many Whovian fans from across the globe have heard the news – a Doctor Who themed restaurant has opened up in Beacon, NY. At only about an hour from Geekritique’s headquarters, my betrothed and I chose to finally visit the Pandorica.
