Now It’s a Party


Lots to say this week, but no time to get it down on whatever it is that passes for paper these days.

I blame that lovely beast pictured above.

I have been unable to play since October. Because reasons:

My Favorite World #18

This attempt at candid capture is Exhibit 5234 in a series of why I am the most annoying person in the world.2To be fair, he suggests that I am only tied with Mom. Again, this blog is about ME. So there. Mea culpa. read more
