Well, that’s about to change, because I have a huge favor to demand.Please vote for me as The Next Celebrity. […]

I’m Guest Posting!

February 18, 2009

Today I am leaving Marinkaville and traveling to Debland, where I was invited to do a guest blog post. And I leaped at the opportunity (metaphorically speaking, of course, I wouldn’t want to overexert myself). I wrote a post about (shh!) a romance I had before I met Husbandrinka. So please head over there, I’ll […]

Fukkitall and the Octuplet Mom

February 12, 2009

Hi, it’s me, Marinka! Remember how yesterday I said that I wasn’t going to post until Monday?

Hey, This Isn’t a Popularity Contest

February 10, 2009

Just because I don’t know how to drive doesn’t mean that I don’t have strong opinions about how other people do it. And I was telling Husbandrinka about these dumbasses who swerve to avoid a chipmunk and end up with their car in the ditch and their passengers maimed. Like, maybe it was the chipmunk’s […]
