I just applied a snake bite venom removal survival tactic to my keyboard’s face.  This is my life.   Alison spills coffee on her spacebar, Alison calls upon her experience in reality survival show watching, Alison puts lips to spacebar, and sucks.  So I’m sitting here with poppy seeds, what I believe to be a [...]

Ok, so just so you know, today’s feature makes my heart beat so far out of my chest that it jogs up my sternum and slaps me in the face with my aorta.  (I should note here that my aorta’s a bitch.  She face slaps with an intensity and meaning that cannot be explained without [...]
