Oops…Weekly News

I’m a day late. Again. I don’t have a good excuse. Wednesday became Thursday before I realized it. Time–it constantly slips in my little corner of the world. Since it’s Thanksgiving, I’ll stop with the excuses and move on to what really matters: Thanksgiving gifs. 🙂

Weekly News

Welcome back to another week–a gigantic news-blitzing week. Since I cannot come anywhere near the hugeness of this week’s news, I will gift you art, castles, and Christmas music instead. 😉

So cool!

Castles! Need I say more?

Christmas music, my friends. Tis the season.

That’s all for me tonight. See you in seven.

Welcome back, y’all. It’s Wednesday once again, and we’re halfway through November. The decade’s about to end, and I am absolutely gobsmacked. Is it just me, or is time screwing with everybody? Hmm… I guess it’s time for some distraction-worthy news.

This first article elicits one response: WTF?

Some animals are just legendary. The cat in this next article is one such animal.

And in the spirit of saving the best for last, the concept of evil may have derived from disease avoidance.

IWSG and Weekly News

It’s that time again–the monthly posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). Time to check in on the twitchy masses who spend far more time at keyboards than they should. We’re weird, wonderful, and wired. Don’t believe me? Click on a few of the blogs found linked to the image above. You will believe. You will definitely believe. 😉

Our wonderful co-hosts this month are Sadira Stone,Patricia Josephine, Lisa Buie-Collard, Erika Beebe, and C. Lee McKenzie!

The optional question this month is–What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever googled in researching a story? 

Hmm…the shape of the continents during parts of the tectonic shifts after Pangaea. I wanted a certain geological area in my fantasy world, so I looked at how the supercontinent looked/was positioned to enable more water outside the continent than between, mountains in a certain location, and large tracts of land with climatic zones that were true to the geology.

I’m a nerd. I know. Time for the some actual news.

This is a good university. PB&J rocks anyways, but when you’re a college student scraping by, it is a gift.

This guy either has a lot of nerve or a very sad story. I hope he just had a lot of nerve. I’d hate to think someone took advantage of him to the tune of a million dollars.

Last but never least, science. Voyager 2 has reached interstellar space. Go, Voyager, go!

Happy All Hallow’s Eve Eve! I don’t know about you, but I’m all hyped up on sugar. I may have bought my candy bag on my way home tonight. Perhaps I should focus on news instead of the hundreds of Kit Kat’s and Reeses’s calling out to me.

This first story is a creepy gift from me to you. Enjoy the dolls!

This next story is a giant facepalm.

And last but not least, science. Google has claimed quantum supremacy by solving a problem in 200 seconds that was predicted to take 10,000 years. Um … that is cool. But, isn’t this the prologue to Terminator?

It’s that time of the week. I’m back to share some of the most interesting news bits I stumbled on this week. Lots and lot of stumbling through news, let me tell you. 😏 I won’t share the trials and tribulations–just the good bits.

This first story demonstrates animal badassery. Walking from Norway to Canada–😯.

Burn the place down. So gross!

Happy Wednesday, all! Fall has made itself known in my neck of the woods, and I couldn’t be more content. I love the temperatures, colors, and feel in the air. I am a happy writer at the moment. Let me share the happiness with y’all via some news.

Can you imagine telling people your job is to chase bears out of homes and watch cubs parkour? So cool!

Nice catch!

And in science news, bionic runners. I immediately remembered the theme music from The Bionic Woman tv series when I read the article. Did I just date myself? Oh well, I heart science.
