Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Four More Weeks Edition

I spent my Columbus Day holiday at the doctor’s office for my two week follow-up appointment to see how my ankle is healing. I’ve tried to be extremely careful while on crutches, but I was still nervous that my ankle might not be healing properly for whatever reason and that I might have to have surgery. I wasn’t all that concerned about the surgery in and of itself, but that would push my recovery back even further and I am not a patient person. Thankfully, the doctor said that my ankle is healing perfectly, so surgery is off the table as an option. I’ve just got to endure four more weeks on crutches and then my cast comes off. It’s longer than I had hoped – that will bring me to a grand total of six weeks on crutches when this is said and done – but I’m trying to convince myself that an additional few weeks is doable and that I probably won’t be miserable this entire time. I’m just really ready for this major inconvenience to be over. To put this in perspective, haven’t been to the movies in over two months! I’m surprised the cinema hasn’t filed a missing persons report for me yet.

But enough about me being cranky – that’s not what you are here for. You’re interested in the hot pop culture slices that I’m serving up, and this week is no different. I’ve looked high and low to find you the best pop culture news that the interwebs has to offer. So get caught up on the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s installment of the roundup. And if you see anyone on crutches, be nice to them. I assure you, they are not loving life right now.
