Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Walk This Way Edition

This week, I started walking for the first time in 8 weeks without the aid of crutches. It’s been a very exciting development for me, since that means that I’m getting close to being fully recovered and regaining some of the freedom that I’ve had to relinquish since I broke my ankle in September. I’m not completely out of the woods yet – I still have pain in my hamstring and calf that makes walking sporadically painful, but hopefully my continued physical therapy will address those issues. For now, it’s just nice to know that if I want to walk to the kitchen to get a drink of water, it is no longer the big ordeal that it used to be. I’m even optimistic enough to plan a trip to NYC in a few weeks; fingers crossed that isn’t a mistake.

With the holiday last week, it’s been kind of a slow pop culture week. That doesn’t mean, however, that there weren’t nuggets of pop culture goodness to be found; it just means that I had to work a little harder to find them. This week’s roundup is the fruit of my labor. So here’s your chance to see what you might have missed while you were eating leftover turkey or black Friday shopping.

Why they didn't hire Peter Griffin to voice Chewbacca to begin with is beyond me. This is SO good!
