Friday Fare is where I post links to the random articles that have resonated with me during the week.
This week I am thankful for urgent care, primary care, children’s Tylenol, Zarbees, and amoxicillin.
Illness has descended upon the house. After four years of relative good health, we have our first set of ear infections for both children. There have been a lot of early mornings and a lot of late nights this week. But there’s still good stuff out on the Interwebs! Without further ado:
- Bill Paxton is one of those actors where once you see his name, you realize how many of your favorite movies he’s been in. For me: Tombstone and Apollo 13. A bunch of storm chasers gave Mr. Paxton a fitting tribute.
- Homemade Reese’s Eggs? OK. That sounds tasty.
- This comic from Zen Pencils is incredible.
Listening: Lord Huron has basically gotten me through this week. I am a grateful person.
Reading: “The Dark Days Club” by Alison Goodman was FABULOUS. And “The Dark Days Pact” just came out … so that will likely be my next book on the TBR pile.
Fiction Update: Despite being elbow deep in ick for most of the week, I got some time to work on my short story. I’m letting the characters tell me their tales and trying to figure out what POV will be used. The main character started off as aggressive, but he’s been cowed a little bit by the detectives who have shown up to interrogate him. So we may be looking at a third-person omniscient POV. 🙂
