Tis the vernal equinox. Y’all feel springy? I’ve been feeling the pressure to pack in all my TV catch up before “winter” (it never snowed here this year) is over.

One of my 2015 resolutions may be reclaiming my downtime but I’m not necessarily sure I’m better for it. Cookie Lyon is an American dream, though. Highly recommended.
