A Handful of Newsblips
A Handful of NewsblipsI’m headed to England this week! I hope to be able to keep up with some of my shows while I’m gone (two weeks without Reign? Say it isn’t so!), but in preparation for my departure, because I will have forgotten all of this by the time I come back, have a little news!…
