Lisa’s Week In Review: 1/21/19 — 1/27/19


For the rest of eternity, this week will be known as my Red Dawn week.

And, oh my God, what a week it was!  It’s not just that I came down with a pretty bad cold on Thursday and I’ve spent the past 4 days on curled up on my couch, feeling bitchy and miserable.  It’s not just that the Oscar noms were kinda disappointing.  It’s also that the news from the rest of the world was so annoying as well.  Between the kickoff of the 2020 Presidential campaign, the now temporarily resolved government shutdown and the media screwing up the Covington Catholic story, is it any wonder that I watched the original Red Dawn not once but twice this weekend?

Seriously, I don’t even like violence but, after a week like this one, there’s something cathartic about watching people blow stuff up.
