The wonderful and delightful Ursula Scully was kind enough to fill in for me with yesterday/last night’s Pajiba Love and I can’t thank her enough. Plus, she did a damn fine job!
The situation with Qatar is confusing as hell, but from what we understand, the conflict may have been started by a fake news story planted by the Russians. Also, that during his press conference today, Donald Trump directly contradicted a statement made by Secretary of State’s only 90 minutes earlier. Anyway, whatever you know or don’t know about the situation, it’s not difficult to discern that this is the Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the United States calling out Donald Trump.

Caitlin has written her first hate-review. She found Gitty Daneshvari’s The Makedown "mean and hateful like a rabid squirrel." Anna is fat, which is terrible, so she loses weight. And then she meets a boy, so she lies to get him and negs him to keep him? Does this sound like a fun romantic comedy to you? (Cannonball Read 9)
