As many of you may have noticed, we’ve had a few service interruptions this past week. Don’t fret though, because we are alive and kicking. A good way to stay informed is to follow us on twitter or sign up for our mailing list. Enough wit

Hello there. Thanks for stopping by for some links. Here are some I’ve collected. I swear I’m going to read 50 Shades of Grey. I mean, I kind of have to. I read Twilight, and watched that movie. It’s just that I need to know about s
