Published on February 8, 2013 By bmagnus

I haven’t been as posty as I’d like lately. As some of you know, I have recently gone back to school. That means I have a lot of reading, and a bit of getting used to classmates who occasionally make me feel like this: I remind myself that I am old enough to be mommies […]

Every newsman, blogger, and their dog have been on about Paul Ryan for the last 36 hours. That being said, I would like to point something out.

Yes, it’s Towel Day once again. Don’t forget your towel. And most importantly DON’T PANIC.
