Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Almost the Long Weekend Edition


A terrible thing happened to me – I thought today was Friday. This actually started last night and has continued through until this morning. So for a few brief fleeting moments, I thought my week was almost over. Then I crashed back to reality and realized that it’s only Wednesday. That is the worst.

I could be looking forward to the Memorial Day long weekend, but more likely I’m just ready for this week to be over. It’s been a stressful few weeks at work with a lot of deadlines in a short amount of time and co-workers that interpret deadlines as suggestions rather than gospel. I’m like the Supreme Court at my office – I can hand down as many decisions as I want regarding policies and procedures, but I have zero enforcement power. It’s frustrating, ergo I’m wishing my week away.

But even if I think/hope that it’s Friday, in my heart of hearts I knew it was Wednesday because I hadn’t posted the pop culture roundup yet. As usual, I’ve tried to compile the best that the world of pop culture has to offer from the last week. So while I come to terms with the fact that I have three more days in the office, get yourself caught up on all that you might have missed from the world of pop.
