Greetings from Winston Churchill High School

Earlier this week I got the unhappy news that Mirch Masala, the Indian restaurant in the Montgomery Mall food court with the best samosa chaat in my area, would be closing at the end of the month.

I was a bit distracted while watching Burden of Truth and Blindspot (both with a lot of female characters I like).
