Blame the Thanksgiving stuffing, candy dishes, [...]

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet [...]

Let’s get some debate going on a Monday morning, why don’t we??
I’ve heard an increasing number of people recently express their disgust with the term “social media guru.”
Here is how “guru” is defined by Wikipedia: “one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to [...]

Pitchman Tiger Woods – Discontinued
I went shopping this morning, hoping to beat the crowds to the supermarket. After three weeks away, our pantry was barren and our fridge was empty, so it was a much-needed trip.
My grocery store usually has Powerade Zero for a decent price, so I stopped by to pick up a few bottles.
I grabbed their two [...]
