    I have a dog who Platform 9¾s* a curtained area of the house, bursting through with gusto whenever he decides to move from one area to another and I have a new found respect for everyone calmly awaiting their train, needing to keep far away from the actual entrance because newbies or really anyone is liable to burst! through at any moment and with considerable momentum. Have you ever waited on a train platform? The fact that no one has either Platform 9¾ed themselves or any innocent bystander is the real magic, here. Anyway that bed is cute.

    Solid skiing gear, right there. Can you imagine this barreling down the mountain at you?

    I’m pretty sure that Paranormal Home Inspector is what happened when that home inspector went to hell but I’m HERE FOR IT and will be finding it on Netflix forthwith!

    casebooks.lib.cam.ac.uk (by the gods, can I get them a new domain name??) is, as near as I can tell, the exact plot of the first Discovery of Witches book.

    * pronounced “platform nine and three quarterses”
