Does everybody know what time it is? I’m serious. That’s the one thing about time changes that I hate. I’m trying to watch F1 this afternoon but is it on at 2:00 PM EDT or 2:00 PM EST when it’s scheduled for 1:00 PM local time.

Today in learning something new everyday: I didn’t know that Jessica Lowndes was a singer as well as an actress. She’s not that bad a singer, even if she sounds a bit generic. So how does she try to make a splash in the music industry?
