This has been one of those weeks that was too busy in face-to-face life to spend a lot of time on the Internet. I seem to be having a lot of those lately. So here are some snippets from the week:
1. The sister had knee surgery and is feeling better. Mom is in town to assist, and we have been binge-watching White Collar (which is ADORABLE if you haven’t seen it and are looking for another thing to be bitter about it being canceled). Prayers and food deliveries still welcome.
2. The vending machine guy just informed me that he will be replacing the revolting cookies and cream candy bars with Skittles, which I think is a great decision.
3. I’m sick over Sandra Bland’s death. I want everyone to read Say Her Name from the African American Policy Forum (in conjunction with the Center for Intersectionality and Social Policy Studies at Columbia Law and Andrea Ritchie). It gives a great overview, additional resources, and a guide for having conversations at the end.
5. This made me laugh and laugh and nod and nod. All the yes that there is: No, it’s not your opinion. You’re just wrong.
Give me snippets of your week. What have you been watching/reading/doing?
