Welcome to a fabulous Friday.
It’s winter, it’s cold and it’s hard to get out of bed. If you’re one of the three people who still orders newspapers of a morning, don’t worry. You can read them later but for now, the news that everyone’s talking about is right here. Breathe. Relax. Particularly, catch up on the biggest story going around today: News of the World has been shut down. To protect News International CEOs or because the public backlash finally got to them? This case has so many layers and the story is far from over. But first:
Oh dear. Oh no. I didn’t think I would, er, be so emotional about a film franchise ending. But come, Harry Potter the books are well over a decade old and the movies have been hitting our screens since 2001. Now it’s all coming to an end later this month when the last (8th) film is released. And look how old the cast are! Props to Emma Watson who looks absolutely stunning in a Rafael Lopez dress. Wow.
The American state of Indiana has decided to ditch the teaching of ‘running writing’ in schools in favour of typing practice. Individual schools can still do handwriting if they want to. Is anyone else constantly floored that we’re still doing this? At what point in our existence outside of schools is it necessary to write in such a way that all our letters are joined? Are we afraid they’ll get separated?
Just sitting there. On a highway. It kind of fell out of the back of a cash carry van. Would you have been so honest?
