It's My Birthday and I'll Do What I Want To…

So it is my birthday. It isn’t nice to ask someone their age. So I’m not telling. If you know me well enough, you know. If you don’t well deal with it! Recently Kristen Kraves Books did a great blog called Non-Bookish Favorites. It inspired me to do the same for my birthday blog. It’ll be short and quick and I hope you enjoy getting to know a little bit about me! I made a few changes because a couple didn’t apply to me… but thank you Kristen for the idea! Tomorrow will be my weekly round up (talk about some highs and lows)!

  1. For those of you have who haven’t met my bookish cats:
  1. My bookish cats. Pavel, Gomez and Liam

Ok fine. I admit. I completely posed Liam with Six of Crows but I felt bad. Pavel and Gomez have always been the readers. Liam is a good boy. Reading has just never been his thing. I didn’t want to leave him out. 

2. TV

If anyone has been paying attention to my twitter feed (which I don’t blame you if you don’t. 


Yeah. The Umbrella Academy. Now these keep getting ripped off You Tube. Hopefully it is still there when you click on it. If not, google Umbrella Academy Dance Scene Tiffany I Think We’re Alone Now (Yes you read that right). I think I’ve enabled half the twitterverse into watching it. And yes my sole plan today is to enable yet one more person to watch and he knows who he is… <insert evil laugh here>… it’ll take a bit of alcohol but that’s cool.

Oh and quick shout out to Game of Thrones because we are just over a month from the last season coming out and let the games begin!

I would also let everyone down if I didn’t give a huge shout out to the very on-point Deadly Class on SyFy, which is seriously nailing the comic.

3) Movies

My movie obsession is one big mess of Marvel. I’ve been watching all the Marvel movies, going to see Captain Marvel on the 8th. Although, truth be told, I’m not *terribly interested* in it. However, she’s supposed to play a big game in ….


Now of course there isn’t much of anything for me to post here because… Marvel but here’s what we have so far…

So yeah, in anticipation of End Game I’ve basically been binge watching all my favorite Marvel movies that have come out over the past ten years non-stop. I have most of them memorized at this point and if I tried to link or insert clips of them all I would probably crash WordPress so let’s not.

And as my favorite meme says:

4) Random

I love my car and the license plate, which if you didn’t know is called “Kaz” and says “Kaz”… yes THAT Kaz. I would put up a picture but as it is someone already said I probably shouldn’t have put the picture up on Instagram. However, hint.. hint.. it is still there…. instagram/novel_lives 😉

5) How am I spending my birthday

A friend is taking me to brunch in a couple of hours than we are crashing at his place to binge Umbrella Academy, drink, read and then a snow storm is coming so I’ll probably crash there and repeat on Sunday! As Ben would say from Umbrella Academy…

PS Diego (#2 Super Bitter) was my favorite in the comics, second favorite on the show. Klaus, the Seance (#4 Super High), is in the show.

And there you have it! Back to reality tomorrow with my wrap-up unless today gets in the way in which case I apologize but it is my birthday weekend and if I don’t blog hop please forgive me. I’ll back in fine form Monday!!!! 🙂 🙂

Some fine titles coming your way this week!! CANT WAIT!!!!
