Something Gold, Something New

Lei Chic You know it's the thought that counts. But your new guy's new gift says he thought you were an old school rapper.

Get Your Mac On

Lei ChicYou: Huh, I wonder if my spam filter is weeding out all those guys who are trying to connect with me on Match.

Spam filter: Nope, not me.
