This is the twenty-second installment in my weekly series, called the Friday Five. In this series, I’ll tell you about five random things that I love, whether they be books, travel, music, movies…or whatever. So without further ado, 1-27-2017’s Friday Five!
1–Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. The trailers for this movie did not do it justice. They made it look like a typical Tina Fey comedy, and while parts of it were funny, it was truly a drama. And a very good one at that. It’s on Amazon Video, free with Prime, so it’s a great opportunity to check it out.
2–What Should I Read Next. Modern Mrs. Darcy does a weekly podcast that I absolutely adore! I have it downloaded automatically in my podcast app (Podbean), so that I can listen to it in the car while driving. I’ve gotten so, so many excellent book recommendations. And I just love hearing Anne and the guests talk about why they love (or hate!) particular books. I applied to be on the show…so hopefully I’ll get selected!
3–Award Wallet. I started using this to keep track of how many points or miles we have in each of our travel rewards program. I have the app on my phone and it is super simple to use. The only downside is that Delta and United won’t allow participation, so those aren’t included. But it still works great for all of the other programs that I have.
4–Visual History of Rasputin. It’s super interesting in case you want to learn a bit about history.
5–13 Hours. Another great movie on Amazon Video (also free with Prime). This one is about Benghazi, and is an incredibly intense film.
