As you saw yesterday, we’re in the thick of birthday mode now – including prepping for a party on the weekend. Consequently, I haven’t had a lot of time to do the rounds of the internet as much as I normally would. But I’ve put together a few things because this series is about celebration and why not take that opportunity!
What am I celebrating this week?
- I finally saw Max Mad: Fury Road. I thought it was incredible. One family member, however, did not and walked off halfway through (“It’s boring. It’s just a chase.”). I tried to explain, It’s a chase – and then it’s a race! And It’s about the circumstance, the journey, not the end. All to no avail. Ah, never mind.
- The Stella Prize 2016 shortlist was announced yesterday. Congratulations to all authors and good luck!
- In a ‘writing this now so I can show to Keira later’, yesterday was also the 19th anniversary of the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
We’re all #grateful for that in this household, too.
