When You're Jealous Of A TV Family

I was gonna cut myself a break and not write tonight, because I’m a little overwhelmed with President Obama’s farewell speech and the impending disgust of a potential inauguration of a man I can hardly bear to look at or think of and I’m unemployed and getting paralyzed by that again and there’s a bunch...
