Happy Valentine’s Day, kittens! I went to go see “Star Wars and the Power of Costume” yesterday, which was absolutely fascinating. It’s mostly Padmé’s wardrobe from the prequel trilogy, but they’re all so gorgeous. I am so impressed by Trisha Biggar, the costume designer, right now.
(Also, that black travel gown might be my favorite? It’s so striking and it also looks so comfortable.)
If we can just make it to March without any more snow or me being sick, I’ll be a happy monster.
This week, Renay and I continued our adventures in Xena with “Callisto.” Also at Lady Business, I shared my favorite media from January, which were Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Late Night Tales: Jon Hopkins. (I listen to more than eighties music! Sometimes I have to calm down.)
I desperately need this tin to store my hardcore sewing supplies.
It’s snowing like a monster here in New York, so I’ve been spending my weekend wearing the same pair of thick socks, making oatmeal cookies, and crafting. (Painting a tin and cutting some postcards out of a Star Wars-themed cereal box is crafting, right?)
At Lady Business, Renay and I continue our Adventures in Xena with “The Greater Good.”
If there was ever a week to light this candle, this was it.
Jelly beans? Or Kylo Ren’s super-sweet debut solo album?
Happy new year, kittens! It’s so fresh and new on the other side of 2015. I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens again on the first, just to really make sure 2016 started off on a good note.
The Book Smugglers kindly invited me to contribute to Smugglivus, so I wrote about how much I love Knightriders and why you should too.
Rory Eccleston, my MacBook Pro, has been in the shop all week, rendering me an absolute wreck. At least I knew what was happening, so I was able to find coping mechanisms that weren’t “feel awful about how dependent I am on technology.” He has been returned to me, with nearly all of his parts replaced (I just needed a new keyboard, but the hard drive, touchpad, and some mysterious internal cables were also replaced), so hopefully, he’ll keep kicking for the next three years. I am going to need three years to come to terms with a MacBook that doesn’t have a CD drive.
Ah, 2015. I, personally, had a pretty decent 2015—my (and everybody else’s) first FlameCon, for one, and I joined Lady Business as a contributing editor—but it’s been an ungainly, awkward year on a more macro scale. So let’s get The Literary Omnivore’s last post of 2015 underway so that 2016 can begin!
As always, these are my favorite books that I read in 2015, not my favorite books that were published in 2015. Although there’s a surprisingly healthy amount of books published in 2015 (albeit with earlier actual publication dates) represented on my top ten this year. Continue reading
Well, that was a pleasant holiday vacation. But back to my usual routine and schedule, eh?
At Lady Business, my fellow editors and I share our Best Beloved Books of 2015!

I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Friday and loved it. Otherwise, I’m thick into holiday preparations and cleaning my old crap out of my mother’s house. I finally managed to sell Ten, my cursed cardboard cutout of the Tenth Doctor from college, which feels like an accomplishment.
