I’ve been away for the last week or so without much internet, so who wants to give me a summary of all the important Kinja news and drama over the past week?

My week has been interesting. I spent most of it at a lovely calm spot on a lake, which was wonderful and relaxing. Then I came back and went to a multi-day bachelorette party, which was fun but quite expensive. Now I feel like I’ve been running around solid for the past couple days and I’m back at work... which is less fun. And I just heard a horrific story from a friend about how her dad (who I was already well aware was a terrible asshole) beat up her brother because he just came out, and has disowned both of them because she’s supporting her brother.

So... I could use some entertaining stories!
