Yet another week without watching a movie. I did finish two books.


Kentucky lost to Kansas State in the NCAA tournament Sunday. My only rooting interest in March Madness now is to cheer for all upsets all the time. That’s working out pretty well.

Still searching for a new church. The one I visited Sunday definitely was not it. I’m starting to consider just staying in bed on Sunday mornings,

As usual, I published a few articles on Medium that got very little attention. My Medium account mimics my real life.

TV News and Views

Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for a 20th season.

FOX has renewed Alert and Accused.

ABC has canceled the game show Final Straw after one season.

You is ending after season five.

I watched a lot of basketball this week even though Kentucky was eliminated. I love that we have a tournament with no 1 seeds left.

I was looking for a show to watch alone yesterday and started Eternally Confused and Eager to Love on Netflix. It’s a nice, easy, 30-minute show about a young man in India who is socially awkward and talks to his inner voice in the form of a wizard figurine. I like it.

I still watch Survivor every week and I still long for the old-style Survivor every week.


I finished two books this week.

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi — This book takes place in a land where the king has destroyed magic and everyone who was practicing it. Zeile’s mother was one of the Maji killed. After a chance encounter with Princess Amari, Zeile heads out on a quest to bring the magic back. Amari’s brother, Inan, is intent on stopping them.

This was a very good YA fantasy book with appeal to people of all ages. Great word-building and short chapters make it an easy, enjoyable read I thought it could have been a little shorter and I wasn’t a fan of the usual YA romance tropes in the story, but I would recommend it to anyone. Even the people in my book club who don’t read…
