POMEs, another week is upon us, filled with things to both amaze and dismay. Take a look as we serve up the most important things we saw this week, from Pantone’s colors of the year to Wendy Davis’ call to not give up the good fight.
The crowdfunding opportunity of a lifetime, please donate to this project because Royce and Marilyn were two of the most amazing people to walk the earth and I desperately want to learn even more about their lives. To convince you of this, here are Royce and Marilyn:
We are a house divided at POMEmag. While we both desperately love Star Wars and Star Trek, when it’s time to choose sides we find ourselves on opposing teams.

BRB, continuing to sink into the mire of catladydom.

And that’s where we’re at this week. Did you see anything else we missed? Let us know in the comments!
