The Weeklies #275

The Weekly Affliction. MRSA. I believe that stands for Medically Resistant Shitty Affliction. Though I'm not a doctor.

The Weekly New Years Resolutions I've Already Blown. All of them.

The Weekly Medication. Who knows? At this point, I've lost track. Wait...does beer count?

The Weekly Fruit. Bananas. Yes, bananas. Because at some point last weekend I lost the ability to walk and they help.

The Weekly Color. Brown. As in what brown can do for me. Apparently that's deliver a lot of stuff to my front door.

The Weekly Score. I'm pretty sure I just scored an appointment with a specialist who deals in weird stuff. I'm pretty stoked.

The Weekly Read. Winger. Not the hair metal band, the book. I feel like I've fallen into some sort of trap that I should feel guilty about. I've read more than one so called young adult novel in the last couple of months and Winger is among the best. It demonstrates the counter-argument to a common misconception - that young adult novels are juvenile and poorly written. Winger was the opposite of that. It was a wonderfully, sensitively told story about a boy in private school who, Holden Caulfield-like, figured out who he was. It's easy to write off young adult fiction but I hope this is the type of book my kids read when they're the appropriate age. Well done, Andrew Smith.

The Weekly Realization. After nearly two weeks off I returned to my office and realized something. I really like my job.

The Weekly Music. Is it wrong that I'm a little miffed that Kiss got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Yes, I own every single one of their albums and I've give them a good college try. But Kiss? Meh.

The Weekly Question.

Kiss, or more exactly Gene Simmons, may belong in the Marketing Hall of Fame, but not the Rock and Roll HOF. Have they released anything actually good since Kiss Alive II?

OK...are we supposed to make up our own Weekly Question?

I believe that YA fiction is the most underrated genre in books. Some of the best books I've ever read are YA. The Fault in Our Stars absolutely blew me away.

I find that I end up with at least one YA book every time I go to the library.
