Weekly News

Another week has passed, but not a regular week–one of the last weeks of July. Summer’s going too fast. I need a time-rewinder thingy. Someone help. I’ll pay. In fact, I bet teachers and students throughout the US will cough up a pretty penny to stall the end of summer.

Please.

Crickets. Sad face. Ugh…

All right. I guess it’s time for the news.

First up is yet another stupid criminal story. What can I say? I’m a sucker for stories of criminals who basically give themselves away.

This is for a good cause, and I bet t-shirts are flying off the shelves promoting this thing. Brilliant!

In science news, superheroes are even more super than we realized. Okay, they’re actually men and women with conditions that encumber their lives in ways I can only imagine, but they will be like superheroes to those that are saved by their conditions. Science for the win.

That wraps up another week. Any chance one of you has found a time-rewinder thingy for me? No? Drat. Oh well, gonna go make the best of the few weeks I have left. Good night.

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    WordPress got confused. I posted a comment (#comment-2093) but it won’t show. Perhaps it’s in spam folder?

    Very cool about the “supermen.” All we need is to identify and do that with psychics (who in general are fakes, but some are uncanny, like Theresa Caputo, James van Praagh, and Alison DuBois). Good about the T-shirts for blood donation. Burglar selfie. Face palm. Have a great week!

      Psychic quality identification would be helpful–even if it’s only identifying what makes certain people more intuitive. I did have a good week. I hope you did as well, Lex!

  4. Medical advancements are fascinating. I’ve read several stories over the past few years where someone has the solution to another person’s problem – perhaps we have been given all the answers, we just need to know where to look.

  5. The first one is funny. They should also be able to track the phone with satellite. He’s really busted.
