The Moribund Month Of May

May seemed like it was a really long month didn’t it? There were a few times that I actually thought I had missed something that hadn’t happened yet. I think it is because we have so much stuff going on over the next few months that it seems like time is just rushing by. I am sure that is how it felt for those celebs that made the list this month. Again, Zsa Zsa teased us, as she seems to do every month now, but in the end, avoided the end. I don’t think there were any winners this week in the prediction pool but if I am wrong, I am sure you will let me know. Since we don’t have all the time in the world, let’s get to it, shall we?
