The Comeback Challenge Round 38
The Queen of Snark Has Arrived



Round 38 of The Comeback Challenge was soooo much fun to read this week. Six great contestants from California to Canada. The snark was sensational. Must have been the looney lunar spin on the moon last night. The contestants were on a blushing blue romantic streak. It was perfectly unbloggable at times! Great competition. And oh. P.S. Watch out for the dreaded bleeps.
