Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Out of the Sick Bay Edition


It was finally my turn to catch whatever bug has been floating around this winter. Mercifully my time being down for the count was minimal, but man did it come out of nowhere like a freight train to completely level me. I had a mild cold for a few days and was feeling particularly tired on Saturday, but I had things to do and seemed to rally just fine. Most of Sunday I was OK to, until suddenly I wasn’t. And I do mean suddenly – one minute I was enjoying dinner with my family and the next it felt like someone had jammed an ice pick into my forehead and I felt nauseous. It was awful. I even took a sick day on Monday, which is very unlike me. And then, almost as suddenly as it appeared, it was gone. I’m not yet 100%, but I feel a whole lot better than I did for that 24 hour period. Perhaps this was the universe’s way of telling me that I needed to stay home and clear out my DVR, which was filled with some truly questionable movies that I DVRed.

But even my brief stint in the sick bay wasn’t enough to keep me from this week’s roundup. As usual, I’ve found the best that the world of pop culture had to offer in the last week. So while I start to feel like a human again, catch yourself on what you might have missed.
