If we were having coffee, I’d likely be surrounded by books and notes again today, on at least my second cup of coffee. I’m spending today doing some work for the photography business, building up our presence on the web and working on the site design; working on some new tutoring possibilities; commenting on and sharing coffee posts; and writing some guest posts and the week’s posts for the Monster. I’m knee-deep in those books, paper, and coffee mugs, actually.
I’m a wee sleepy this morning, as Sam and I stayed awake into the late hours of the night eating ice cream and watching Twin Peaks on Netflix. Sometimes being a grown-up is actually quite fun. And speaking of—it’s nice to have a three day weekend as an adult, too. Tonight we’re seeing a play with friends, then Sam and I have plans to see What We Do in the Shadows at The Prytania Theater Sunday night. I get to spend the days working on my extracurricular projects and the nights playing, and that makes for a nice weekend.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week has been awash in stories that have made me angry and conversations that have left me exhausted. I started the week with the Game of Thrones “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” debacle, and I’ve ended it with learning about the Duggar story. I’ve been appalled by so many things this week, heartened by some others, and certainly reminded that it’s almost time to start our Feminist Friday project again.
I won’t say much more about it in the coffee post, but I will point you to the piece Natacha wrote and published here yesterday on sexual violence in TV, which is a great place to join that conversation if you’re interested.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about the swell blogging schedule that’s coming up this week and a few places you can find me, too. On Monster Monday this week, we’ll have Urszula from Confessions of a Broccoli Addict contributing her first monthly post. On Wednesday, look for contributor Lyn’s monthly series I Heart It.
Meanwhile, I’ll have the regular features here. On Tuesday, you can find me reviewing Penny Dreadful at Sourcerer, and later in the week I’ll be at Comparative Geeks for the first of my Thursday 13s in the Summer of Sandman series.
And speaking of—I’m off to visit some coffee posts and then to work on some posts for the coming weeks!
