I’ve… lost track of everything I’ve been tagged for. THERE I SAID IT. Rest assured, I will eventually remember. But, as they say, I’ve got a mind like a lumber room. Thing wanted always buried. So instead of doing the logical thing and going back and doing these tags in order, I’m going to do … Continue reading Behind the Blogger Tag… Delving into my mysterious secrets
“Time isn’t reeeaaal” I shriek, descending into madness as I ignore my own posting schedule more and more.
