Friday Fare is where I post links to the random articles that have resonated with me during the week.
This is from last week, but it still made me giggle … the father whose interview with the BBC was crashed by his little kids. I’ve definitely been in his shoes, but luckily armed with a mute button.
This article was the topic of several funny memes I saw on the Interwebs this week.
Margaret Atwood weighs in on the timeliness of “The Handmaid’s Tale” during the current political climate.
As you’ll see below, I’ve been on a 70s music kick this week. This article which features a link that isolates Grace Slick’s vox on “White Rabbit” doesn’t disappoint.
Starburst says they will release a bag with just the pink ones. Brilliant.
My dad’s birthday this weekend … my gift to him is a toss up between pecan pie brownies (infused with some bourbon) or Bailey’s brownies. I’m not sure if I’m considering him or me when it comes to my pending decision.
Listening: It’s been a 1970s kind of week in my household. I’ve been digging Bread.
Reading: Still reading George Saunders’ “Tenth of December,” a collection of his short stories. Also started “Enchantments: A novel of Rasputin’s Daughter and the Romanovs” by Kathryn Harrison. I have a thing for the Romanovs. This book is exquisite.
Fiction Update: Finished my short story. Gah, those 4,000 words were elusive. I need to revisit “Dragonfly,” but I’ve been trying to get some reading in while my mind takes a quick pause.
May the luck ‘o the Irish be with you and happy weekend!

We miss you, Grace. Miss you more than you could know.
