Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like the 18-year-old who bought her first lottery ticket “for fun” and won. It sounds like she’s got her medical school tuition handled!
Well, even if all you won this week was the lottery of unfortunate events, it is Friday, my friends! That means it’s time to grab a hot cuppa and check out another “5 Things.” Enjoy!
It turns out that “The Boss” likes to get personal with his fans!
Codebreakers have managed to figure out the letters written by a very clever Mary Queen of Scots. Apparently, she used a rather complicated cipher to share her thoughts and some spycraft-level plans!
Back by popular demand: The Anti-Valentine at the San Antonio Zoo! Hilariously, you can sponsor a cockroach and name it after your ex (or anyone else you dislike). The zoo will then feed the cockroach to one of its many fine tenants. Having the other person notified of this gesture is optional. Note: Consider this your reminder that Valentine’s Day is Tuesday!
Speaking of love, fans of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South will want to check out The Woollen Olive Branch. Written in Gaskell’s style, the book follows beloved characters Margaret Hale and John Thornton in a wintry tale.
Lastly, it’s shameless self-promotion time: Another Time, the second book in the Just in Time series, is out on Tuesday. Be sure to treat yourself or your Valentine to the next chapter in this time travel odyssey!
Okay, that’s all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
