Ok, so this is the final Pajiba Love of the bastard year of 2017. It’s really been a suckfest, hasn’t it? Let’s hope 2018 brings about some happier and less craptastic news. Thank you to all of the regulars who hang out in the comment section and to the occasional visitor who pops in, hi! We hope to see you again next year.
I’m sure Dustin will dig more into this tomorrow, but in an interview with the NYTimes, Donald Trump stated, and I quote: “Another reason that we’re going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes.”

Have you given a book to a sibling or partner just so you can read it yourself? Caitlin_D gave her sister a collection of Rainbow Rowell novellas, Almost Midnight so that she could read "Midnights." Caitlin_D’s wish is that Rainbow Rowell will "write a full length novel because these snippets are not enough." (Cannonball Read 9)
