Book: Retief series by Keith Laumer
- The Retief Series on Goodreads
Fun reads ranging from short stories to full books that satirically detail the adventures of Jame Retief of the Corps Diplomatique Terrestrienne (CDT). Kelly will shoot you a 56-x (disapproval with significant judgment) if you don’t. Read one of the stories and the previous sentence will be quite funny.
Streaming: House of Cards (Netflix)
Scheming and evil in Washington DC brought to you by Netflix. Just more fun to watch than the real stuff. Season 2 starts February 14!!
