Yard House

Saw a gastroenterologist in Kenmore Square.  Such a waste of time.  I know it’s good to keep any eye on my insides, and I may need him someday for something but right now, he chats about his vacation, orders blood tests and sends me on my way.  At least he tells fun vacation stories!

The Big Sick

7:33 AM Sassy
Fascinating story of how a writer’s visit to Osborne House led her to Queen Victoria’s Urdu diaries at Windsor and on to Karachi to open a trunk in an attic and uncover the Queen’s friendship with an Indian man. She wrote a book and it’ll be a movie in September!
