It seems as though, today, my brain is goo and resembles nothing like gray matter. I could blame it on Justin Bieber, but I really must blame my lack of sleep. You see, I stayed up past my bed time (yes I have a bedtime. I have children and, therefore, have a bedtime too) to read a book. I finally got a chance to read Bloodlines and am exhausted because of it.
That’s not why we’re here though.
