Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Sick and Tired Edition

Somehow I am sick again – or sick still. I can’t really tell anymore. I feel like I have been coughing and sneezing non-stop for weeks now. I’m healthy enough to be functional and go about my daily life, but sick enough that I generally feel “meh” about doing much of anything. I was looking forward to spending last weekend hitting up the cinema and catching up on some of the movies that I’ve missed, but instead I spent almost the entire weekend sleeping or trying to will myself to get out of bed or off the couch. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. The day that I’m not sniffling or downing cough drops like candy will be a happy day indeed.

So while I look into getting an IV drip of vitamin C, catch yourself up on all the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Thankful Edition

Somehow tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which seems kind of crazy since I still have bags of Halloween candy in my office. I’m looking forward to seeing my nephew enjoy his first Thanksgiving, though since he can’t eat turkey or anything yet I’m not sure how much he’s really going to get out of the day other than being passed around like a hot potato. That kid seriously has no idea how much he is adored.

This year I am particularly thankful for the four day weekend. My master plan is to get caught up on all the movies and TV shows that I’ve fallen behind on. I’m not sure how I’m actually going to accomplish all that is on the schedule unless I don’t sleep the entire holiday, but I’m up for the challenge. Usually by this time I’ve started prep for the Oscar death race, but this year I haven’t even gotten around to seeing the new Thor movie yet. I never used to miss a Marvel movie in the theater and now I’ve already missed Spider-Man: Homecoming. I seriously have to get my life back on track.

So while I binge-watch Netflix shows and spend all day in the movie theater, get yourself caught up on all that you might have missed with this week’s pop culture roundup. Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving!

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – The Plague Edition

Apparently a plague has settled in to my office, as pretty much everyone on staff has some degree of sickness. In an ideal world, everyone would get to stay home when they aren’t feeling 100%, but unfortunately that’s not the world we’re living in so the echoes of hacking coughs permeate my building. I don’t know if cough drops count as a food group, but I’ve pretty much been sustaining myself on them for most of this week. I started drinking hot toddys over the weekend which didn’t do much to prevent me from getting sick, but certainly diminished how much I cared about it.

So while I get IDed for the hundredth time buying cold medicine, get yourself caught up on the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.
