The 2016 #Online18
April 5, 2016 at 2:45 pm

Congratulations to the 2016 #Online18! Each year I do this list, I find it more and more difficult to identify the top influencers.

March 30, 2016 at 4:51 pm

We ask ourselves this question every day. For example: Oh look, someone brought in donuts! Can I eat that? Hmm, this has been in the fridge for three weeks. Can I eat that? Mmmmm this lip balm smells like pineapples. Can I eat that? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never gnawed on lip balm before, but…
