Ok, I’m doing something different this week! Because I am a rebel and I’m having a rebellion! This week I am not recommending a book – this week I am recommending A WHOLE AUTHOR. (buh, buh buuuuuuuuuuuh). Not only is this a recommendation for said author’s entire body of work, it’s also kind of recommending […]

Confession: I am a lower-middle-class white girl. Ok, that’s not the confession; you all know I’m a white girl. My name is Megan Flynn. I pretty much Irish step-danced out of the womb. You can land planes with the reflection off my shoulders. I’m a pasty ginger, it is what it is. My confession is […]

Is it too late now to say sorry? Not according to Amy Poehler. Bet you thought I was going to say Justin Bieber, eh? Though he also has done some great apologizing lately, he never inspired me to do the same. I read “Yes Please” by Amy Poehler recently, and found so many little pieces […]
