Oh Captain! My Captain!

Yesterday a wonderful actor and comedian died. Robin Williams filled my childhood with such joy and laughter and I want to share with you a few of my favourite movies that he brought to life ! Here are clips from some of my (to this day!) favourite films, featuring Robin Williams.

 Aladdin - Genie

Ferngully - Batty (apologies for the quality!)

I couldn't find the right clip, but I'd strongly suggest that you all go and watch Hook again (or for the first time) too, it's absolutely worth it.

Farewell, O Captain, my Captain.

Homeland Season 4 teaser

Homeland is returning for its fourth season in October with a huge reboot since the departure of Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis).

This season will be largely set in Afghanistan and Pakistan where CIA officer Carrie Matheson (Claire Danes) works to maintain stability in the region after US forces pull out.

All Things Bookish...

I love books.  I also love bookish things.  And believe me there is a wide range of bookish things out there.  From movies about books to book trailers to books about books and everything in-between.

So if you've ever struggled with trying to find a gift for a bookie family member or friend or, if we're being honest, yourself, then why not check out some, if not all, of the things below.

I'm already writing up my Christmas wish list...


You can never have enough mugs.  There is something comforting about the feel of a mug.  Even the word mug sounds solid and steady.

Happiness Is...

I kind of want this mug.  And I don't even drink coffee.  Weird or what?  Don't answer that.

Okay, Okay

If you've read John Green then you'll recognise this mug straightway.  Then again John Green is kind of awesome.
Banned Books

Educational and inspiring too.  What better mug can you ask for.
Writers Mug

A mug designed especially for me.
Things to wear, things to carry

Of course if you've got the mug why not have the clothing.

Library Stamp t-shirt

Well I am a Librarian.  So I just had to include this t-shirt.  Because how could I not.  I also highly recommend that you check out the rest of Outofrprintclothing because their stuff is just awesome.

Pride and Prejudice Bag
I just love this bag.  It's pretty and girly and kind of perfect.

Of course if you've got the t-shirt and the bag you just have to have the tights.  I'm just a little bit in love with them.
I carry your heart...

Romantic that I am it probably comes as no surprise that I've included this bracelet.  It is all kinds of lovely.  A perfect gift really.

Around the House

Okay I'd probably wouldn't go quite so far as to furnish my house with bookish things... then again...

Bath set

Yeah bookie things even make it to the bathroom.  Just be grateful I didn't post the link to the bookish toilet paper.

Bookworm Pillow

You've got the book and the bookish mug and you're ready to lean back and read so why not have a bookish pillow to lean on.
Literary Candles

Reading by candlelight.  Probably not that good for the eyes.  Still the candles are pretty.
Novel Tea

You just know they had to do it.

I just had to include some comic related stuff because awesome!  Like seriously.  I'm  this close to buying that Marvel bag.  Because how cool would that be.

Wonder Woman Sneakers

What every woman should have in their wardrobe.  A pair of Wonder Woman sneakers.
Comic Graphic Leggings

I wish I could wear leggings.  Because if I could I would be madly buying all the pairs because there are some amazing leggings and tights out there.  Sadly  my legs just look like a sausage about to explode.  Tragic really...

Comic Shoes

These shoes rock, lethal looking as they are.

Gym Bag

I want.  And that's all I have to say really.
