I am a bit late to the Selma Blair standing ovation that has happened this week in spoonie social media. For the non-spoonies that don't know what … Continue reading Canedy Crush
This week while running into the local IGA supermarket for some ice cream, *coughs* kale. I made super quick eye contact with a fundraising individual right near the entrance. This is something I try to avoid. Don't get me wrong I will support many a cause, but the methods that these outsourcing agencies go to … Continue reading Funding and Games
