Lisa’s Week In Review: 4/23/18 — 4/29/18


Usually, I avoid discussing current events on this site but this has been such a chaotic week that I simply have to start out by mentioning everything that has happened since last Sunday.  Bill Cosby was finally convicted.  Tom Brokaw was finally exposed.  Kanye West tweeted that he loved Donald Trump and the people on both sides of the political divide lost their damn minds.  (And that was all just on Thursday!)  Meanwhile, the Korean War might be over and, as usual, an excessive amount of coverage and discussion was devoted to the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.  (If they had Nerd Prom in the 18th Century, the French Revolution would have stated a decade early.)

As for me,  this week has been a mix of good and bad.  The good part definitely included being interviewed on Ferguson Ink.  It also included Wednesday, which was Administrative Professionals Day.  The bad part has pretty much been this weekend, largely due to a combination of asthma and allergies.  Again, I had to put off my plans to review 28 classic Italian horror films.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get a start on that project next week.

Anyway, here’s what I did accomplish:
