Pimp My JD

Started Jul 9 0 Replies

I don't think JDs are dead (sorry, Zappos) or even ineffective or obsolete. They're just written like crap.  So I figured we could help. I'll be choosing one JD a month to take from snoozer to sexy…Continue

Anyone Know Code?

Posted on August 8, 2014 at 1:00pm 4 Comments
