Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Baby Watch Edition

My sister-in-law is getting close to her due date, which means that I am officially on baby watch. What this basically translates to is that every time that my phone vibrates with a text message, email, Snapchat, Twitter, or Facebook messenger notification, I dive to get to my phone as quickly as possible to see if it bears tidings of my nephew’s impending arrival. I’m pretty popular, so my phone goes off a lot. I’m going to be in amazing shape when this kid finally arrives. So if you want to torture me, randomly message me throughout the day, knowing that wherever I am I am grabbing at my phone like I’m on the Titanic and it’s a life preserver. If you’re especially evil, do it while I’m at work.

So while I (semi)patiently wait to become an auntie, keep yourself occupied with this week’s pop culture roundup. There’s something here for everyone – even newborn babies.
