Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Post Halloween, Election and Daylight Saving Time Edition


I don’t know about you, but this last week has been kind of a crazy one – between Halloween, Daylight Savings Time and Election Day, there was just a lot going on. Even though I didn’t have to take anyone out trick or treating or worry about anyone’s sleep cycle getting thrown out of whack, there was just something about the last seven days that felt a little off. Maybe it’s the Thera-Flu that I’ve been guzzling every evening in an attempt to shake this cold that’s been bringing me down. Whatever it is, I’m glad that things have settled down  bit – well, as settled as my life ever is.

I was worried that the pop culture roundup would be a little light this week, with so much attention focused on other things, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. After being momentarily distracted, the pop culture machine continued to pump out all sorts goodness for us to consume. Thank goodness for that! So without further ado, here are some of the pop culture stories that you may have missed while you were trick or treating, oversleeping and voting.
