This week in reading…Finished Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and Shotgun Lovesongs. Started A Little Life. Picked up Inside the O’Briens and two books from NetGalley including Girl Waits with Gun, which I’m excited to read. I’m 3 shy of completing the Literary Ladies Summer Reading Challenge and the next Show Us Your Books is August 11th so mark your calendars and start drafting your posts!
This week in fashion…well, sort of. It more should be “this week in new clothes because everything I own sucks” but I bought 4 maxi skirts so now I’m mildly trendy even if I trip over the bottom of the skirts repeatedly because #short
This week in TV…Thankfully “Last Comic Standing” and Denis Leary’s new show are great because “True Detective” fucking sucks and “Hell on Wheels”, well, I don’t know what they’re doing there. And it’s going to be forever before all the Netflix shows I like come back on so for now, it’ll continue to be minimal TV for me. Speaking of Netflix, anyone have an ETA for “Longmire”? The internet is not helpful.
This week in controversy…“Trophy” t-shirts. Diner owners who yell at children. More crap about the Duggars. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj fighting on Twitter and Katy Perry jumping in. Can we seriously stop caring about this stuff and spending so much energy on it? Please. It’s utter nonsense and the fact that we’re more wrapped up in crap like this instead of worrying about important things, real things like what happened to Sandra Bland or how we can get Donald Trump to shut the fuck up and go away, makes me sad for our country.
This week in things that are awesome…I had a whole list of things to share but then this came across my screen and it is better than everything else I’m going to let it stand on its own. Facebook doesn’t always suck and it saved the lives of these two dogs.
This week in internet reading…This oldie but goodie from Mental Floss, 7 Book Dedications that Basically Say “Screw You”. Science confirms that cursing is good for the soul (I fucking knew it!). Being busy is not something to be proud of and this post gives 21 great reasons why. And this post and the hashtag #IWishMyTeacherKnew is heartbreaking and makes you think about what’s really going on with the kids you know.
Have a great weekend! I’m not sure what I’m doing yet because it’s the first weekend of the husband’s summer vacation and we’ve planned nothing! Speaking of his vacation, posting will be erractic, if at all, next week because #poorplanning so if I don’t see you next week, I’ll see you in August!
P.S. You can always follow along with my terrible pictures on Instagram if you’re curious to know what we decide to do.
