Michelle Browne


I'm a female carbon-based life form with a strong interest in shiny things, science fiction and literature, reviews, and music. I like to swear creatively and mess with people's minds in the most compassionate way possible. Also, my blog supplies the daily health requirement of witty humour recommended by Canada Health and the American Medical Association!
