"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.

How to Build a Girl Introductory Post, which is full of wonderful things you probably want to read

Acclaimed (in England mostly) lady Caitlin Moran has a novel coming out. A NOVEL. Where before she has primarily stuck to essays. Curious as we obviously were about this, I and a group of bloggers are having a READALONG of said novel, probably rife with spoilers (maybe they don't really matter for this book, though, so you should totally still read my posts). This is all hosted/cared for/lovingly nursed to health by Emily at As the Crowe Flies (and Reads) because she has a lovely fancy job at an actual bookshop ( Odyssey Books , where you can in fact pre-order this book and then feel delightful about yourself for helping an independent store). Emily and I have negotiated the wonders of Sri Lankan cuisine and wandered the Javits Center together. Would that I could drink with her more often than I have. I feel like we could get to this point, Emily INTRODUCTION-wise (I might've tipped back a little something this evening, thus the constant asides), I am Alice. I enjoy

Harry Potter 2013 Readalong Signup Post of Amazingness and Jollity

Okay, people. Here it is. Where you sign up to read the entire Harry Potter series (or to reminisce fondly), starting January 2013, assuming we all survive the Mayan apocalypse. I don't think I'm even going to get to Tina and Bette's reunion on The L Word until after Christmas, so here's hopin'. You guys know how this works. Sign up if you want to. If you're new to the blog, know that we are mostly not going to take this seriously. And when we do take it seriously, it's going to be all Monty Python quotes when we disagree on something like the other person's opinion on Draco Malfoy. So be prepared for your parents being likened to hamsters. If you want to write lengthy, heartfelt essays, that is SWELL. But this is maybe not the readalong for you. It's gonna be more posts with this sort of thing: We're starting Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone January 4th. Posts will be on Fridays. The first post will be some sort of hilar

Minithon: The Mini Readathon, January 11th, 2020

The minithon is upon us once more! Minithons are for the lazy. Minithons are for the uncommitted. Minithons are for us. The minithon lasts 6 hours (10 AM to 4 PM CST), therefore making it a mini readathon, as opposed to the lovely Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and 24in48, both of which you should participate in, but both of which are a longer commitment than this, the Busy Watching Netflix person's readathon. By 'read for six hours' what's really meant in the minithon is "read a little bit and eat a lot of snacks and post pictures of your books and your snacks, but mostly your snacks." We like to keep it a mini theme here, which mainly means justifying your books and your snacks to fit that theme. Does your book have children in it? Mini people! Does it have a dog! Mini wolf! Does it have pencils? Mini versions of graphite mines! or however you get graphite, I don't really know. I just picture toiling miners. The point is, justify it or don't
