  1. Mary Margaret O’Hara had ice water in her veins. That ice water poured out of her eyes in the form of a death stare, which she almost joyfully presented to the two teenagers beside her.

      • Aimee, thank you for starting your blog. It gives me an outlet I can’t get anywhere else. I can be serious or goofy here.

I hope you don’t mind that I post so often, I have fun here.
