just got home from a crazy wild portfolio review trip in the middle-of-nowhere, Montana. So pardon my MIA.

With it being winter & all, snot rockets are at an all time high. Ugh. I wish I could just Alex Mack into a puddle of goo. But I can’t, so instead I’m going to have avoid the grocery store for a full week, specifically the international aisle, until the dust finally settles. The worst […]
