TIME WEEK

Time is a little bit like gravity - in that you can’t really turn it off. While gravity is a constant downward force, time however can be uplifting. Time can be fun if you let yourself go, while gravity can be fatal with that same approach. That’s not to say time doesn’t come to an end of course. It happens to the best of us. So enjoy every second of this 604,800 second long week.

ICON WEEK

Icon. When you think of the word, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? A religious statue, a celebrated person worth of veneration or a smiley face symbol? Funny how the same four letter word can mean something as ancient as the shroud of Turin or as flippant as an eggplant emoji, and not perhaps the first four letter word you’d imagine would do.

DOPPELGÄNGER WEEK

Ever bumped into someone who looked just like you without the embarrassment of walking into a mirror or highly reflective surface? Apparently, even though there’s over 7 billion people on the planet, there’s just a 1 in 135 chance of there being a perfect pair of anyone. Unless of course you have a twin hiding in Bavaria drinking schnapps.

COUPLE WEEK

Making flat pack furniture commonly causes arguments between couples. But couples often end up making use of that furniture to make up afterwards. Getting sexy on a side table. Making out on a kitchen island. Worth thinking about while you watch this week’s stuff. Maybe with your other half.
