Greetings, all. We have some notable deaths to cover, some interesting entertainment news, and more, so let’s get started:
Greetings, citizens, from your friendly unicorn watching the news in Germany. I have to say though, they’re much the same depressing heap of hopelessness over here. Let’s get to it.
Despite my silly headline, we do have some serious stories to cover this week. Let’s get to those first, and you shall be rewarded with some amusing stories to see you into the weekend.
Apparently I’ve won the World Cup.
We’re on an LGBTQ bent again with this week’s newsy roundups, along with news about the Malaysian Air flight that was shot down and some recent obituaries. Let’s get to it.
The curse of Netflix is its excessive supply: most nights it takes us half an hour to choose something. While browsing movies last night, my husband chose The Flat based on its intriguing description — and then watched in puzzlement for 15 minutes before realising it wasn’t in fact a thriller.
Oh honey pot, doodle face, little poodles and cats. Welcome back.
Recently, a friend asked me for books, preferably fiction, to help her understand the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. I don’t think I can adequately cover that subject (ever, it’s just so big), but I can offer some suggestions regarding Israel, Palestine, Syria, and the changing face of the Middle East.
