The week gone by — Jan. 19

You probably missed the massive news coming out of Great Britain this week.

”But Bill …” you’re probably thinking. “… even if you don’t pay much attention to the Royal Family, everyone has heard the Harry and Meghan news.”

But that’s not the news I’m talking about.

This is.

Beating autocorrect is a big deal.

Dare I say … it’s a big ducking deal.

STUFF I WROTE THIS WEEK

Tales of a bad basketball player — Always have been … always will be.

Where all the best stuff comes from — What anyone who writes something has in common with Lin-Manuel Miranda.

THIS WEEK’S BLAST FROM THE PAST

Starting them young — A friend’s Facebook post about her son’s being worried he won’t get into a good college if he doesn’t take four AP courses as a high school junior reminded me of this one.

STUFF I READ THIS WEEK

#twitterfamous (Buffalo Sauce Everywhere) — Renata’s a star now! (And I’m with her 100 percent on the Marius thing.)

Fixing Your Problems With A Relationship (Rosie Culture) — Spoiler alert: it usually doesn’t work.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (BEXoxoBlog) — Yes, it is.

The Unrelenting Snow Globe (The Return of the Modern Philosopher) — Winter can be unpleasant.

This is brilliantly written, and should leave you absolutely infuriated.

However you do it, don’t leave the monitor on the back of your seat on while you try to sleep. Just trust me on this one.

TWEETS I LIKED

My friend Bob knows how to have fun, and this looks like fun.

Bang, bang

I usually ride six miles on the bike at the gym. Does that count?

Anyone who can do this should have to fend suitors off with a stick.

Meanwhile, in Canada (read the whole thread)
