    Gummi Bears. The universe values gummi bears. They’re bouncing here and there and everywhere, don’t you know.

    1) shop til you drop
    2) an international tattoo parlor etiquette
    3) dancing with the stars
    4) the Kardashians
    5) pit bull grooming

    Trying to stay with universals here, though the pit bulls may be a bit provincial. But enough of this seriousness; on the lighter side, I’d like to see Hillary’s list.
