Oh, Friday, how good it is to see you! It’s been a short work week, but since getting back from New York on Monday night I’ve had a million things to do, so I’m ready for lots of R&R and can’t wait to catch up on blog things! Are you planning a fairly low-key weekend too? Let’s roll into it with today’s fun findings.
National Donut Day
Yesterday I mentioned a big “food holiday” in June – National Donut Day! Well, that day is here, and who doesn’t want to take part in such a glorious holiday?! Wondering where you can grab a FREE donut to join in on the celebration? Check out this list, but keep in mind, several of them require a drink purchase. What’s your favorite donut?
Roots Miniseries on A&E
While I was watching something on TV last week I just happened to catch that A&E was getting ready to premiere a remake of Roots, the 1977 miniseries! I watched the original when I was in 5th grade as an extra credit assignment (read: I’m an overachiever) and still remember the impact it had on me, as the series gives us a look at slavery from the view of the enslaved from 1750-1870. I’ve only watched one of the episodes of the remake so far (each one is about the length of a full movie), but all the feels are coming back to me. It’s SO well done and if you haven’t seen the original or the new one, I highly recommend adding them to your watch list.
On a lighter note, ready for some Friday laughs? Can you imagine hopping into your Lyft (they’re a competitor of Uber) and having a celeb driver?! Well the basketball great, Shaq, successfully went undercover (including several outfit changes) as a driver and it’s amazing. Hey Lyft, can I request a celeb driver next time?!
