It’s been a tough week in Dallas. Things don’t just bounce back to normal the week after a shooting like that. A section of downtown is still blocked off, the local news is fixated, memorials and funerals have been ongoing… And then the attack in Nice, France happened last night. So, world? Please give it a rest.
I’ve spent much of the last week alternating between watching the news and feeling awful, then checking out and playing The Sims or reading a book. (Side note: Someone made a perfect Angelina Jolie Sim.) If you’re looking to escape in a book too, I posted some YA book deals the other day and several are still super cheap.
- Kim, the other half of CP, wrote about Ghostbusters and I’m looking forward to seeing it ASAP.
- She also said we should all be reading Saga.
- Senator Tim Scott spoke about being profiled as a black man and accused of impersonating a Senator by capitol police.
- To read: Practically Speaking, The Death Penalty Is Disappearing In The United States. I’m glad, but I’m still waiting for when it really disappears.
And I love this adorable dog:
Happy weekend, Cookie-pals. Stay safe and be happy. 🙂
