I hate liver.

A travel blog entry by liz_singanong


... shiny and rich and the biggest problem I face on a daily basis is trying to decide what I want from Starbucks. (Well, depending on the day, they aren't completely far from the truth.... Sometimes Netflix gets in the way.) These things just really made me stare our political system in the face for a little. Don't worry, I'll come back normal and patriotic as ever, promise.
