Superb Owl LII: Iggles and Patsies

Hard to believe I have 14 of these things junking up my DVR when I should let them wash over and through me like the adorable animals they are.

The Queen’s Speech

  Well, if you were watching the Doctor marathon on BBC America you would have seen it already. I told you about Acela didn’t I? Liz is a sport she is. It may seem a little Jesusy for me to feature but don’t forget she’s like the Pope of Episcopalians.
