Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Insomnia Edition


I don’t know what’s going on exactly, but I haven’t been sleeping well. This has been going on for well over a month and is problematic, not just because I am a person that really loves to sleep, but because I am tired all.the.time. There isn’t enough coffee in the world to get me through some mornings. I have no idea what triggered this, so I’m not quite sure how to fix it. Back in the old days, I could easily get by on little to no sleep. That’s no longer the case and I’m slowly turning into a zombie. Give me another few weeks and I could be an extra on The Walking Dead.

But the show must go on….so while I yawn and struggle to stay focused, get yourself caught up with this week’s pop culture roundup.

    Matt Stopera is a Nisky grad and his mom is a retired teacher here. Parsons is perfect casting! It’s a great story.
