Books, Coffee Musings and Kitty Pouts

My Catwoman pout FAIL but I’m still a crazy cat woman with my ‘too cool for school’ coffee mug.

My day was completely book crazy! I’m sitting amongst a heap of books I must (in my over-achiever sort of way) get through for my master’s dissertation. We’ve got Freud, Lacan, Kristeva and some exciting literary exploration with Louise Rosenblatt this week. If you had to meet me in real life, you’d probably think I stepped out of a cartoon- that’s how excited I get when talking about my thesis. #majornerd

However, somewhere between the delish sips of coffee in my crazy cool black cat coffee mug (I mean serioso how CUTE is it!?) and meandering through my local bookstore, I decided I needed to make time for some recreational reading as well. Yoga has been helping me immensely in the de-stressing department but I love getting lost in bookish worlds…it’s the greatest way for me to unwind. So today I started reading…

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley. I hadn’t heard anything much about this novel to be honest…it just sorta fell off the shelf and stared at me, so I said okie doke I’ll take you home little book. Yes, I speak to books. Don’t judge me. I’ve only read a few pages so far but I’m already interested to see where this tale takes me. The male character seems familiarly cynical and it’s set in dreary England. According to the interweb, it’s steampunk, historical, witty…yes yes you’ve spun your webs, I shall read you till the very last page. Despite the fact that I have a thesis deadline looming this week. Must keep sanity intact. I’ll keep you guys updated on whether the book is a hit or miss with Of Tales & Dreams.

In other news, I was excited to befriend April Mullen on Instagram. She’s a Canadian director that has filmed a few episodes of one of my FAVORITE SHOWS EVER –Killjoys. And she recently gave us a sneak peek of the filming for Season 3. Check out our girl Dutch on the instavid here : April Mullen

I don’t think I have the proper words in English (or any of the languages I speak including Meow) to tell you how excited I am for Killjoys Season 3! Anyhoo, I should get back to my thesis and how I plan on saving the world through Neil Gaiman texts 😉

Stay inspired…lock and serve your warrants Killjoys-style and remember to look out for the small things in life. And do let me know what you are reading!

I'm that girl that looks badass in her black boots reading Gothic Psychoanalytic Lit but really just wants to pew pew pew with someone.

    1. What a beautiful gift! To be able to write songs. I wish I had that talent! I love that book. It’s so important for every woman to read that at some point in her life. And for every man as well, so that he may understand the essence of the female spirit. Thanks for the follow and for the conversation 🙂

  2. Books are indeed a girl’s best friends – even more than the proverbial diamonds 😀 😀
    One can’t underestimate their power of taking us away from everyday concerns and help us breathe some fresher air…

    And…. Killjoys has been renewed for season 3? That’s fantastic!!!!
    I’m in the middle of season 2 and the mysteries are piling up faster than I can acknowledge them, and the dwindling number of episodes to watch had me a little worried. YAY! 🙂

    1. I totally prefer books to diamonds! I love getting lost in other worlds. It’s a beautiful human gift that we have the power to do that with one another through words. Each season of Killjoys is so short but I suppose it makes it more exciting and adds value to the fans! Let me know your thoughts when you’re done with Season 2. I think Season 3 will be out in June or July! Hopefully!! 🙂 The warrant is all 😉
