Quinoa Mac + Cheese

It’s incredible how invested I am in this Lamar Odom situation.

I am the #1 non-fan of the Kardashians, but I’m not going to pretend that if a Kourtney + Khloe take Miami marathon is on I’m not going to binge-watch. Of course I am. Trash TV is in my top #10 of specialties.

I don’t LIKE it, though. I’m not happy with myself when it’s over. I blame it on relevancy. I have to stay hip with the kids.

I always thoughtย Lamar was the cutest. Just a big ogre dealing with a bunch of nitwits. What a doll.

If Lamar doesn’t wake up & reconcile with Khloe, I will throw a fit.
