This week’s winners post is a day late but I’ve been sick so you will have to give me a little bit of a leeway. In this new series I am going to be posting about things I think are winners! There is enough negativity out there, so let’s talk about what is positive whether it be movies, TV, books, food, friends, whatever!
Happy Birthday Megan!- My sister Megan has a birthday today and she has accomplished so much in the last year with the publication of her first book Finding Wild. She’s a great mother, friend, and sister.
Nothing is better when I’m sick than a Jamba Juice. They taste so good and feel so good on my sore throat. Thanks to my Mom for getting me one last week. Sometimes I think I could live off of Jamba Juice! My favorite flavor is Caribbean Passion.
If you haven’t caught The Crown on Netflix you really are missing out on one of the best shows ever made. Much heralded as the most expensive show ever produced for Netflix it lives up to the hype. The acting is tremendous and it is real human drama. My friend Tom and I have been talking about it and will finish our podcasts discussing the finale tonight!
It’s hard to have winners this week and not talk about the Patriot’s unlikely come from behind win at the Super Bowl. I do not follow football at all but even I was impressed with what they did. It is the season for underdogs in football and politics I guess!
I went to the new Intermountain Health Care Draper Clinic yesterday and was very impressed. Everything was clean and organized and I did not have to wait long to see the doctor. They got me my prescriptions and it was all very simple and easy. I will definitely be returning there.
I finished reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and LOVED it! What an inventive, charming, funny, wonderful novel. It hits nostalgia galore without leaning on that nostalgia and is sci-fi without being boring. It felt positive which is a real rarity for these types of novels. It does have some cussing but not enough to bother me. I rarely walk away feeling so positive about a novel as I did for Ready Player One. Now I just can’t wait for the Spielberg movie to come!
So there you go! The losers for this week are the witch hut against Betsy Devos, my flu, and the violent Berkeley protesters.
