I can't believe in the year of our Lord, 2018, that I have to even write this. It pains me to even bring it up but since we're in the midst of the hell that is called "cuffing season," I have to look out for my sisters. It has come to my attention that men… Continue reading Death to “Talking”
Froth: worthless or insubstantial talk, ideas, or activities In light of today's daily prompt and recent celebrity gossip, I've decided to tell the straight-shot-no-chaser version of the scandal that is Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian.

Marvel fans and casual viewers alike can breathe a sigh of relief- the year-long buzz has not merely been hype (kind of like the Justice League-oops). It's the real deal.
