Well, that’s a declaration of war on a Tuesday.

And I regret not a single syllable.

@susannah Doing my best, my friend. By the gods and Benadryl, I am doing my best.

@RussSharek I don’t know, my dear, I think that’s a perfectly respectable sentence, worthy of inclusion among the greats.

@RussSharek The lack of physical flexibility is only a recent development completely explained by the effects of time upon a carbon-based meatsack.

Just had a long conversation about MMORPG role balancing with my son over chickpeas and rice.

*blows gently on fingertips* Yep. Still got it.

@Kiratala Unrepentant, evil-for-the-sake-of-evil villains have their place, but they do tend to be cardboard. Even Morgoth had his motivations.

@Kiratala I’d argue that in most cases, that’s what makes a “villain.” (Most. MOST.)

…yep, I found the single molecule of jalapeño remaining on my fingers even after repeated hand washing and rubbed it into my eyes, fabulous, even the utterly expected can sting…

To watch a New Writer’s face light up when I say, “You might not see it, but from out here I do—you’re thinking *like a writer*, and making one of those jumps to a new plateau. There will be frustration when you level off, but you’re still moving forward.”
