Pop Culture Odds and Ends – I’m An Auntie Edition

He made us wait for it, but my nephew finally made his glorious debut on this planet last week. Kudos to my sister-in-law ushering this perfect little creature into our lives. It’s amazing how much he has changed all of us already and he isn’t even a week old. So far being an auntie is pretty easy – I show up, hold the baby for a while, and then get to bail if he gets fussy. Honestly, this is kind of a perfect arrangement. And it’s amazing how biology works – obviously this isn’t my kid, but when I look down at him in my arms, I’m pretty sure that I would take a bullet for him. Hopefully that theory is never tested, but who knows – it’s too early to determine how good he’s going to be at life choices.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Digging Out of the Snow Edition

Pop-Culture-608x500

I foolishly thought that we might make it through this winter without too much fuss, but Mother Nature had other ideas in mind and decided to dump a fair amount of snow on us in a very short window of time. I’ve certainly been through much worse snow storms and other parts of the country have received way more snow this year, but after the relative tranquility of this winter (weather-wise, at least) it was a bit jarring to have to remember how to drive on partially plowed roads. I thankfully live in an apartment complex so my only responsibility is cleaning off my car, but I remember the struggle that was having on-street parking during a snow emergency. I don’t miss those days of shoveling your car out only to have it plowed back in ten minutes later. I hate snow in general, but I didn’t even mind the storm Sunday since I had nowhere that I had to be. I took that as a cue to stay put and work my way through the pileup on my DVR. It was relaxing. I don’t need there to be any more snow for the rest of the season, though. We’re good.

Also good – this week’s roundup. I took advantage of the snow day to get caught up on all the pop culture that I had missed and now I share that bounty with you. There’s a little bit of something for pretty much everyone, so dig into the pop culture bounty and see what you discover.
