Everybody dies, Tracey. Someone's carrying a bullet for you right now, doesn't even know it. The trick is to die of old age before it finds you.

I got free covid tests from the state today! They started it when the US did too? So that’s awesome.

I’m watching Encanto en español and it’s very annoying because I like to have captions on—I catch more of what they’re saying then—but they don’t match the audio! It’s like two different people translated from the English—they’re both the same idea but different words and phrases (the captions in the song say “no hablamos de Bruno” whereas the audio says “no se habla de Bruno”)

Oh shit. We just had a unicorn type house drop in our market and we could afford it.

(It would include lots of room for Buffistas to visit too.)

It's in probate. Talking to our realtor tomorrow.

Exciting, David! I found my visit stay on your couch very cozy indeed, but more room would be great for your family. I will note that moving after a long time in one place is a whole new level of hell. weeps in memory of moving too many boxes of vinyl

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Fingers crossed for the unicorn house!

Good luck househunting, Hec!

Steph, good thoughts headed Tim's way.

Two people I know are currently in the hospital on ventilators with Covid, both vaxxed and boosted. One is a relative who has been battling cancer for a couple of years. He's probably not going to make it.
