Nothing has ever turned me on more

Somebody just posted this video on facebook and I literally cannot cope. I am ACTUALLY SALIVATING. I’m making noises that could not be published in an Enid Blyton novel. I am thinking about how if I sellotaped my toaster upside down to my lamp stand that maybe I could recreate this vision that has ascended… Continue reading Nothing has ever turned me on more

January. The sacred month of devout healthiness. The holy trinity of truly believing that this year, you can do it!
