Funny Shit Maddy Says

If you've never met Maddy, you should really figure out a way to hang out with her. Her schedule is jam-packed with camp, track, and Shopkins, but I bet you can work something out. When she's not rolling her eyes at me, she really is riot. Sometimes I post our funny conversations on Facebook, and [...]

Two Lists, One Bitch (Vol. 3)

  5 Things that Really Grind My Gears People thinking Beyonce actually wrote her album "Lemonade" about her father cheating on her mother. Guys, no.
