There I was, relaxing out by my uncle’s pool in my American flag bikini when, suddenly, the biggest and most violent thunderstorm in the world came along and I had to go running inside while thunder rumbled and lightning flashed all around me. It was a two and a half minute run and I still ended up getting totally soaked.
That’s how my Labor Day weekend is going!
But no matter. It’s been a good week. This week, I finally started posting my Retro Television Reviews, which is something that I’ve been meaning to do for several months now. We’ll see how it goes!
