Can't we all just get along?
I have only been in 1 real fight before in my life, in 4th grade. I lost a tooth on account of Hannah the Barbarian— that was her fighting name. Last night I almost-possibly-coulda gotten into a fight. At a karaoke bar of all places! Let me set the scene for you.

I lose everything. On any given day, I lose at least 3 things. I probably spend an hour (at least) of every day, looking for stuff. It’s not because I am forgetful.

(Me: fettuccine alfredo with chicken and spinach and a raspberry lemonade, you:...

In Virginia, the moment there is any talk of snow, everyone rushes to the grocery store and stocks up on milk, bread, and eggs. It’s like a snowpocalypse. The end times. As for me and my house, we will always be VA at heart. Last night after I saw the news, I frantically ordered provisions from Fresh Direct. Now my fridge and larder are full to bursting with: milk, eggs, orange...
