James Bond, Streisand, Obama: what a week….
Last week was a crazy one for so many of us, from our first major blast of winter here in the great white north (a crazy 25 cm of snow)… to the frenzy over the US election (to quote Beyonce, Take that, Mitches)… and yet there is always my escape to pop culture world…
Here are some my faves from last week:
Best Bond ever? Holy crap, super hot and typically glum Daniel Craig was everywhere this week, and was actually smiling in some of the press he did for the new Bond flick… Bond… James Bond… must see Skyfall….
I love someecards.com, as they are smart and snarky without crossing into nasty. Or not crossing into nasty too often. And this one made me laugh, because is funny and is true.
Go away redneck misogynist bigots, YAY Obama…
This book by Richard Cohen, author of the terrific Multiple Sclerosis memoir Blindsided, is fast, fun and kind of mean. Grinch-ish Cohen doesn’t like dogs, his wife TV journalist Meredith Viera keeps bringing them home and spoiling them. I love Viera, and Cohen comes across as curmudgeonly but fun. A fun read on a winter’s night with Alfie curled up beside me.
My lifelong Sherlock Holmes obsession continues with the fab new TV show Elementary, a good find in a season of truly crappy TV. Holmes is in modern day New York, fresh out of rehab, assigned a strong-willed female caregiver (and former doctor) who happens to be named Watson, and the duo helps the local police solve crimes. Love this show.
