1. The Boy has been desperate for me to see “Interstellar” with him for several weeks. We squeezed it in yesterday, and there was a lot to like about the movie. But the best part is this (it’s not quite a spoiler, but here’s an alert just in case): The survival of the human race is largely dependent upon a little girl’s book shelf. How incredibly awesome is that!?!?!?!?!
2. I have polled various members of my family, and the consensus is that this ad from yesterday’s newspaper is offensive. I mean, I’m a big fan of sparkly jewelry. I would not complain if, in some alternate universe, we could afford for the husband to give me such a ring for Christmas. But the caption in this ad is truly appalling:
Happy Saturday, all!
