Valentine’s Day for Single People

SOLVED. So *that’s* what I’ve been doing wrong all this time?!? Advertisements

Friday Fun — HE’S ENGLISH!

If you haven’t seen this video series yet, please take the time to watch every single one. Back story: these two British girls (they’re cousins, like five and eight years old) love Nicki Minaj and posted a video of themselves on YouTube singing Super Bass. They ended up on “Ellen” — because they’re actually really … Continue reading

Is This You?

Friday fun — the awkward running edition.

Big doings in the bike world this week. It’s COBBLES TIME! If you don’t follow pro cycling, we’re into the exciting one-day spring classics as riders come off a couple of early stage races and get geared up for the big ones this summer (including, of course The Tour).
