Tag: The Lake

Attention! Very Last-Minute Addition to my Christmas List!

I want, I need, I love this. I have to have it. This makes no sense unless you watch Friday Night Lights. It is my favorite show. I don’t currently really watch it, because we don’t have it because Comcast sucks donkey dongs. I don’t understand why, but it is on a channel that we don’t get, and so I… Read more →
