Growing up I was a closet Geek, now I'm out and proud! I have my likes and my dislikes but I don't let a dislike cloud an opinion. I'll give everything a go and will sit and be tortured through a lot of mundane things. Right at this moment I'm really into the whole Doctor Who / Sherlock / Hunger Games thing. Now if only a cross over were to happen.....

Week 44 : What is the most tragic thing happening in the world right now?

Last week I tackled the happy in the world and showed off some of the nice things going on that I could find in the papers to spread some positivity.

Another two murders, one a complete mistake.

Poirot and Crome can’t stand each other, there is a killer on the loose but the young police man doesn’t trust or want to know anything to do with the aging detective.
