Culture Creature - The Magicians, Giant Days, The Girls, Thor and Gal Gadot!

So, the title really says it all, but here are some cultural tid-bits that I'm excited about right now. 



  1. It's been announced that Felicia Day will be joining the cast of The Magicians for season three! I've only seen the first season, and I'm waiting for season two to hurry up and get on Netflix. Maybe I should just read the books?

  2. Giant Days: Volume Six trade is out! If you aren't reading this series, you are missing out. I'm not going to lie, as soon as I saw that it was out, I stopped reading everything else to read it.

  3. Our new book club pick is The Girls by Emma Cline. It's been out for a good bit, but I'm glad that I'm finally getting around to reading it.

  4. I really want to see the new Thor but I don't think a date night is in the near future for us. We'll probably have to wait till it become available to watch at home.

  5. And finally, have you read this article about Gal Gadot being basically a real life Wonder Woman? If not, you should check it out.

Culture Creature - Stranger Things, Pumpkin Carving, A Pocketful of Crows, Pumpkin Brownies and Sweater Weather!

So, the title really says it all, but here a some things that I'm looking forward to experiencing as October comes to an end.



  1. Stranger Things, Season 2. Did you see that there's an actual countdown on Netflix? I love it! I cannot wait to put LB to bed and binge this with Mr. LL, a bowl of popcorn, Halloween candy and some mom juice (a.k.a. wine).

  2. Pumpkin Carving! Mr. LL and I have carved pumpkins together almost every year since our first date. We started dating in October and I still remember carving pumpkins with him in those early days listening to Prince's "Purple Rain" and Lionel Richie's "Hello" on repeat.
  3. A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M. Harris; this book is on a lot of lists for anticipated and best books coming out this month. It came out last week and I'm going to be checking out as soon as I can get my hands on it.
  4. Sweater Weather. I live in New Orleans, so it never really gets that cold here, and thanks to global warming, it never will. However, we get chilly days now and again and I've been eyeing up this sweater to add to my sadly underused collection.
  5. Baking some pumpkin brownies! I'll post the recipe review next week!

What are you looking forward to this Halloween season?
