So what are you using to wash away this shithole day?

I am drinking boxed white wine out of a coffee mug. I get a box, always, because I can't finish a bottle in one sitting (rather, I shouldn't and the Mr. doesn't really drink wine). I found this brand on sale at my local grocery store for $9 - yes $9. I've never had it before but it just tastes like standard,… » 8/12/14 8:35pm 8/12/14 8:35pm

New Law Preventing Funeral Protests in Louisiana
