The Weeklies 240

The Weekly Word. Kine. It's the plural of cows and the only word in the English language in which the plural form of the word contains none of the letters of its singular form.

The Weekly Thing I'm Thankful For. The three day week.

The Weekly Beverage. Coffee. And lots of it.

The Weekly Photo Collage.

The Weekly Read. Between closing out the season of Walking Dead (until it returns next month) and finishing off the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant, I've been surrounded by zombies. With Blackout, Grant ended one of the best series of books I've read. Why? Because they were astonishingly well-written, populated by characters you gave a damn about, and turned a genre on its ear in a really refreshing and compelling way. Plus it's all about bloggers.

The Weekly Television. Chopped. And is it me or did the Food Network turn into the All Chopped Channel?

The Weekly Food. JalapeƱo stuffed green olives.

The Weekly Question. What one thing are you most looking forward to in 2013?

I loved the Newsflesh trilogy! It was so much fun and the characters felt very real to me. I actually sobbed when Georgia died in the first one. I also thought that Mira Grant found a clever way to give everyone a happy ending. Have you read any of her books written as Seanan McGuire? I'm not sure urban fantasy is your thing, but I like them.

Looking forward to completing my first tough mudder race in April.

I'm looking forward to it all. No apocalypse so now every day is a bonus. lol

I, too, loved the Newsflesh trilogy.
And I totally think you should delete Hillary's comment above for anyone who hasn't read it yet.

I agree Jenny.
I'm excited because I will finally be out of nursing school and can append my name with those two little hard-earned letters RN. WOOHOO!
I also have had good feelings about several years, all of which have been transformative years in my life. (Chicken or egg IDK). 2013 is one of those years. Onto the next amazing adventure! I hope all of the Cactus-Fish and commenter's years are amazing also!
