The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 5-14-17

Sunday Post

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. (Including the cat moms (like me) and dog moms and ferret moms and rabbit moms) Today is one of Hallmark’s best days, as so many people send Mother’s Day cards. It’s also one of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s best days of the year. For a lot of families, a bucket of chicken seems to be a great way to get mom out of the kitchen for a day without leaving her a pile of dirty dishes. That KFC acknowledged all of that this year with a surprisingly funny spoof of a romance novel, Tender Wings of Desire, is the icing on the cake. Or the coating on the chicken. I couldn’t quite bring myself to review it, but Amy graciously stepped into the breach with a slightly tongue-in-cheek review on Friday.

But speaking of things to do this weekend, for those of a more geekish persuasion, if you haven’t yet seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I highly recommend it. While it doesn’t manage to capture the lightning in the bottle of the first film, it is still a load of fun. For those of us who lived through the 70s and 80s, it is also a bit scary that I still remember the lyrics to all those songs, even the one-hit wonders like Brandy and Lake Shore Drive. Hopefully I wasn’t singing along with the music loud enough to embarrass Galen. Too much.

The nice thing about being a cat mom is that they can’t be embarrassed by the silly things that their humans do!
