Coffee Talk: Headstands on a Plane, Hide and Seek, and My New TV Obsession

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}

I’d like to welcome you to Coffee Talk. If you’re new here, this is where I share some of the great and not~so~great stuff that I find on the web. Topics range from news stories that leave me scratchin’ my head to DIYs that I think are absolutely clever. And, who knows, there may even be a recipe thrown in here or there just for fun.

So grab a cup of coffee {or tea or whatever floats your boat} and let’s talk…

A few weeks ago I posted on Facebook that I sometimes wish that I had the power to zap people. Not kill them, just send a little tingle through their body, you know, just to jump start their common sense. People were surprised that I would say something like that but y’all… There’s a reason…

This woman started doing headstands. On. A. Plane. And the flight attendant had to ask her to stop. Like she didn’t know that her behavior was inappropriate. Where do these people come from that they think doing headstands, clipping their toe nails, and stuff is how you act on a plane. I remember my first flight, we went to Italy and everyone was dressed up, they served us meals with utensils, and everyone applauded when the plane landed. I mean, we don’t have to go back to that point {although it would be nice considering the price of a plane ticket}, but dang if people shouldn’t use some common sense when in a tight space with others.

Melania Trump has become the Where’s Waldo of the 2016 political campaign. Just saying…

Ava DuVernay’s new show, Queen Sugar, premiered on Tuesday and Wednesday. You guys, I’m hooked already. The series, based on the novel of the same name by Natalie Baszile, tells the story of a family who inherits their father’s sugar plantation in Louisiana and the trials that come with. But, more than that, it’s the story of family, class, the justice system, faith, love… It’s everything. The production is sleek, the characters are already well established {second episode in and I already feel like I know this family but still have a lot to learn}, and the emotions are real. If you haven’t seen the show yet, I highly recommend you check it out on Wednesday nights.

Now it’s your turn, what has you scratching your head?

Sipping my coffee while you talk,
