Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Game of Thrones is Coming Edition

I can’t believe it – a new season of Game of Thrones finally debuts this weekend. I’ve been waiting forever and it felt like a lifetime since I’ve last been spending some time in Westeros.  I had lofty plans of re-watching the first six season to help pass the time, but that somehow never happened. But I am so freaking excited to have this show back in my life, even if it is for a shortened season. Lately I have kind of dreaded Sunday nights because that meant mentally preparing myself for facing another week of work, so I’m glad to have something that will make my end of weekend transition more enjoyable. Whatever fresh hell my co-workers have cooked up will pale in comparison to the pending encroachment of White Walkers.

So while I quickly refresh my memory on where we left everyone last season, you can refresh your pop culture knowledge with this week’s roundup.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Summer Solstice Edition

Summer is officially here! To all my friends that are teachers – your watch has ended. To my friends that are parents – your watch has begun. This is shaping up to be a weird summer for me since I don’t have much of anything on the calendar. I already took a quick vacation and my summertime commitments are pretty limited. So really, all that summer means to me is time to catch up television, which is alright by me.

Speaking of catching up, this new edition of the roundup is your chance to get up to speed on all pop culture that you may have missed. It’s the longest day of the year, so you have time!
