Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Playing Hooky Edition

I took the day off today, so technically I’m not really playing hooky. My boss has a vague idea where I am, but “using a vacation day” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. I’m actually off on some pop culture-related shenanigans that I’m sure I’ll share with you later, assuming everything goes according to plan. Stay tuned.

Of course, I couldn’t leave without making sure that you had this week’s roundup to keep you amused in my absence. As usual, I’ve searched high and low to try and find all the pop culture that you may have missed in the last week. So kick back and relax and fully immerse yourself in the world of pop.
