"I have paid MONEY for this. WHY have I paid money for this?Surfacially nice girl with perfectly fine boyfriend is instantly smitten with divinely smelling, insanely well- and richly-dressed, paranormal baddie and is kind of hugely relieved when her save'n nice boyfriend drives himself into a coma. Only having to sit at his bedside instead of kissing jerks turns out to be a bummer... Ehh!!! Crap on toast, no shit." Aug 26, 2014 02:43PM
