It reeks more of nerd than money today


I know my good angle.


Ugh, what are these basement dwellers doing in natural sunlight?


Why don't you go home and rest- wouldn't want you breaking a hip.


You wanna touch my scarf? A fan crocheted it out of their own hair. It smells so bad!


I can make you a star!
