Comedy = Tragedy + Time (Pandemic Fights)

How are you doing? These are some hard days we are all going through. No matter where lies your political alliance, no matter on which side of the bench you sit regarding vaccines and masks, we can all agree that this sucks! This global state of fear and terror sucks!

Anything related to gossip in pop-culture, in fact pop-culture itself, was considered not an effective use of time. As a child wheneverContinue reading “My fascination with the Royal Family”
