"Everybody gets a sculpture of their spirit animal"


Last night I saw The Vow (SO MANY EMOTIONS) and The Woman in Black (SO SCARY) and then came home and watched an episode of Bomb Girls (SO MUCH CANADIAN LESBIANISM). Ok, that isn't really true for the latter, but I have been promised this:


This is tumblr's fault, because there's a fuckyeahkateandbetty tumblr, and it posted pictures of ladies in period clothing, and so obviously I had to get on that train. *puts on train-riding hat*

Bookish update inDEED. Let's see. I am reading Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist, because I like to challenge myself with literature that both pushes the envelope and makes me reconsider the basic tenets of life that I hold near and dear to my heart. I am not reading it because it is YA and therefore easy. That would be ridiculous.

Also Portia de Rossi's Unbearable Lightness, which I've just started, but is REALLY good. Julie from Contractually Obligated to Like Books and I are weirdly big fans of Better Off Ted, which is a show that isn't excellent, but we still like it a lot? I don't know. I cannot explain the Better Off Ted viewing experience. You're going to have to watch it. Anyway, Portia de Rossi is in it, AND in Arrested Development, which means she will be forever awesome. This book is so far demonstrating that she's also really intelligent and thoughtful.

Otherly, Julie just posted on Mindy Kaling's book, which reminded me I need to actually read that since I own it and so forth, and VALENTINE'S DAY is tomorrow. But today is Galentine's Day, so Happy Galentine's Day, book blogging ladies. I think I'll go buy myself chocolate at the Godiva downstairs. Because I've been to that Godiva on Valentine's Day, and that was an experience that should never happen again.
