What a lovely notion, a fountain of culture, information and knowledge at your fingertips, lo and behold, you can sit and have coffee aswell?

Somebody on a Saturday

Sonorous Snoozy Sundays

So yes, I'm in the U.S. for those of you who are still catching up. I'm a Jersey girl now, you'll know me because of my un-manicured nails and off the boat accent. I'm just after seeing Harry Potter with mini-me the elder and a recently acquired friend, I really enjoyed myself. It made up for the... Sign in to see full entry.
