Am I kind of terrible?

March 21, 2013

Quit being a wuss. Subscribe to my blog. Girl Ninja was recently eligible for an upgrade from her iPhone 4. We made a deal that if we could sell her phone on Craigslist she could upgrade to the iPhone 5. I posted it last week and got zero bites. I was a little discouraged since […]
