What I Love This Week

I promise this is the last time I’ll talk about Game of Thrones but god help me, I’m grieving. I spent every spare moment over the past month staying up late and finishing all SEVEN seasons (what I should be is embarrassed) in anticipation of tonight’s final season premiere. I loved it, looked forward to every episode. I can’t remember the last show that left me feeling this way. The Americans, maybe? All I know is that I’m in too deep. I love Jon and Arya and Tyrion and Brienne…even Jaime lately. How can I possibly let them go? I guess this is what I can expect when I wait a decade to watch the show everyone’s been talking about. Now I’m all “hey hang on I just got here!!” [sigh]

This Woman’s Dad Wrote Her An Epic Email Telling Her Not To Buy A “Ridiculous” Peloton Bike And Improved Everyone’s Finances

I sit here raising my hand as someone who has seriously considered buying a Peloton, so I share this article not as a way of hating on those who buy them (heck maybe I will decide to get one someday), but to poke fun at the crazy, expensive elitism that’s constantly being sold to us as Wellness.

Root of Evil
Before we go any further, let me tell you that I had to stop listening to this podcast. It just got a little too disturbing. But I’m becoming a real Sensitive Sally so don’t take my stopping as a sign that the show isn’t worthwhile. If you’re a true crime fanatic, I have to imagine this chilling, borderline-unbelievable story will be right up your alley. Here are the details:

When Elizabeth Short, also known as The Black Dahlia, was brutally killed in 1947, it gripped the entire country. More than 70 years later, it remains America’s most infamous unsolved murder. Many believe Dr. George Hodel was the killer, thanks to an investigation by Hodel’s own son. But murder is just part of the Hodel family story, one filled with horrifying secrets that ripple across generations. Now, through never-before-heard archival audio and first-time interviews, the Hodel family opens up to reveal their shocking story. In this eight-part documentary series, sisters Rasha Pecoraro and Yvette Gentile, the great grand daughters of George Hodel, take a deep dive into their family history to try to figure out what really happened, and where do they all go from here?
