And it’s now official! I feel that there are enough products to finally and formally promote the Of Books and Bailey shop, hosted via Etsy. There is a link all the way to the right in the menu bar, or you can simply click here. The designs are by me, and we are currently featuring products inspired by books, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Sherlock, and the Hunger Games. We’ll have more added later this month!

Why does this film have to be so good? It’s tormenting. It’s wonderful. It’s downright sadistic to the Star Wars lover.
True to form, Mr. McGinnis and I pre-ordered the blu-ray, and it arrived promptly on Tuesday. We waited patiently throughout the day for the family to gather so we could finally watch it once more. Each time I watch it, the wheels in my head spin anew with unprecedented thoughts and theories. This time was no different so expect me to broach the subject again shortly, and I pray that it doesn’t annoy. Continue reading “Upon Rewatching The Force Awakens”
I didn’t write yesterday, but that’s okay because instead I get the opportunity to write on International Women’s Day! And I thought, why not celebrate? So without further ado, here are some of the most awesome, bad-a, butt-kicking, powerful females in renowned literature, film, tv, and music! In my humble opinion and in no particular order: Continue reading “Top 20 Pop Culture Females”
Valentine’s Day gets a lot of flack. True, I hate the commercialization of it. And the ignorant, romantic teenage version of myself thought it was stupid. Why do we need a day to celebrate love? Shouldn’t we celebrate love all the time? Yes, teenage Bailey, we should. But now that I’m an adult with a child who takes a fair bit of our time and money, I’ve realized that Valentine’s Day is just a wonderful excuse to spend some money for gifts and have some quality time alone as a couple.

It’s a good day. I got my bangs trimmed, my roots recolored, I’m hanging out in my new Star Wars Yoga pants, Oliver’s yoda costume came. Yeah, I’m pretty much over the moon right now.
The Force is strong in our family. And to top things off, while I was at the salon, Taylor caught up to my Jedi on SWTOR! Continue reading “My First World Boss: The Story of How I Became a Gamer”
It’s been a good weekend. I played Magic for the first time (awesome game), our costumes for Comic Con started coming in the mail, the Super Bowl happened, which I didn’t really care about but Coldplay performed the halftime show, which is always good news for me.
Oh! And this video of my cute little Ollie Hoot gained some traction over Facebook! Continue reading “And the Oscar Goes to…”
Who is Rey? Where did she come from? And is she a Solo, a Skywalker, or a Kenobi?
As promised, in my previous SWVII post, we need to talk about Rey. Continue reading “Rey: A Solo, A Skywalker, or a Kenobi?”
Spoilers ahead! DUH!
The Force Awakens is destroying box offices left and right, and I cannot begin to say how much I enjoyed it. The first time I saw it, I was in awe. That was Empire good! Honestly, it was one of the few movies I saw this year, where upon my first viewing, I could sit back and simply enjoy it. I was purely entertained and left the theorizing, the nitpicking, and the deep analyzing until after the movie. The second time, I wished I had a notebook and pen with me so I could vigorously write down notes and ideas. Continue reading “Star Wars: The Questions Awaken”
