I caved

50 shades

No, I didn’t have a brownie, cookies, a donut or even french fries.  I broke down and bought 50 Shades of Grey for my Kindle yesterday.  As usual, I’m a little late to the party.  I didn’t think I was going to give into the hype until I read this post and now I’m almost halfway done [Read On]

Back on the horse – Day 1

In February 2011 I got my hair cut short for the first time. [Read On]
