We Are Messed Up Here

A 2-post collection

Monday holiday

The kids have a long weekend. Beloved and I don't.

That's the way of things, I guess.

Today is a cleaning day, and it might not even happen because spotty flooding is already happening in the area. Rainy season has begun, and that means periodic flooding. Bad enough to close some roads, but not bad enough to stop most things that give me life.

So there will be posts. Steemit and Patreon. And the usual installment in my novel. Assuming I can focus on anything other than that asshole elf I adopted. Laugh now.

I'm starting to think my fandom will be better at this than that agency I paid $400 to.

It's gone nine. I should try and focus on my work.
