the vma's–what???

Reader Note: This is not my usual post. But as I sit here, poised to go to bed before 8pm because I stayed up late Sunday night watching the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s), I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t say something. So I shall…  ingredients: Nonsense and ridiculousness. servings: Anyone who wants to waste several hours of their life that they will never get back. rating: 0 (I won’t waste a bookmark icon.) preparation:...
