The Princess Bride is 25? INCONCEIVABLE!

As cheesy as it may be, I do find it completely and utterly inconceivable that The Princess Bride is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its release.

The day finally came where we could stop by the school and check the class lists, so we did a quick drive by.

Do You Really Need a Stronger Vagina?

I was probably 12 or 13 when Cosmopolitan magazine first taught me about my pelvic floor. Well, more accurately, they taught me about Kegels and how all women should be doing them to strengthen their pelvic floor, and also their vaginas! A pelvic floor should be strong. And so should our vaginas!...more
