Friday Fare: 3/17/17

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!
