I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got three words to describe summer in New York this year: Hot, Humid, Hell. And whatever temperature it is in the city, it’s always at least 15 degrees hotter underground on the subway platforms. Am I sweating? Am I melting? Am I secretly the Wicked Witch of the West?
Thankfully, my inner fangirl has plenty of distractions this summer:
Remember this post when I was screaming incoherently over Wonderwoman’s brief appearance in Batman v. Superman? Guys, her movie was SO GOOD. The best friend and I walked out of the movie theater feeling so pumped, we were swearing up and down that we could take on any poor soul who dared to challenge us.

“Twenty bucks those poles collapse and all anyone sees on camera are the pillars falling like dominoes.”
Grace gave her co-star an aghast look. “There are crew members up there!”
“I’m not saying they’ll collapse NOW.”
Grace thought better than to reply. Still, there had been some unnaturally bad luck surrounding the filming of their movie.
