The bio light fan didn’t work, it took forever, fought the whole way down. Asshole turnip.”

Doc Paradise and helpful minions burned a second turnip. According to reports, it fought the whole way and smelled bad. Appropriate. What are you doing to see out this horrible, terrible, no good, very bad year?

Mid-week check-in

Clever Manka, · Categories: Check-In

I’ve got nothing for content this week. I’d planned to write up a year-end sort of thing, but no time no energy, and if I had the energy to write it, I wouldn’t post it because the only good thing I could think of is I got to see Hamilton with the original cast and meet some NYC Toasties and you all are wonderful, but that absolutely does not make up for the rest of 2016’s shitshow.

So instead of content, I’m posting mid-week check-in early to give everyone extra time to grieve, complain, scream, mourn our dead, and do our best to get the tire fire of this year somewhat out of our systems so we can face the coming year with something resembling hope.
