I am awesome.

The weather is awful here right now. Thunderstorms now. Hail earlier. Tornado warnings and sightings for the area as well. Flash flood warnings for the next hour or so. A couple of people I know without power. I hope that I can write this before the power goes out! I would have nothing left to …

I’ll Do It!

i'll do it

I’m not Allison Mack, or Bill O’Reilly, but I am just as fabulous. How’s that for a tagline/niche? I need a new one, since I don’t even know what “All is On with Allison” is even all about. I’m thinking that I just have a pretty darn good life that I should be a bit …
