Xtreme Outdoor Picnicking gets a logo. Because anything this ridiculous totally deserves one.
The English have a lot of tea. And when I came here I thought I was all up on the tea thing. I'd even gone to Dubai and done the super awesome tea thing that cost an arm and leg (it was worth that arm and leg). I had a boss who would explain, in... Continue Reading →
