We live in an age where illness and deformity are commonplace, and yet, Ploppy, you are, without a doubt, the most repulsive individual I have ever met. I would shake your hand, but I fear it would come off.

Victories

Nyx 3 is done, and somehow, this has stopped the rapture.

Tony wrote another 1700 words of St. Lucy’s in 1 day. Many of them are good.

Kelly is graduating from Mt. Mercy on Sunday. This is all I can think of.

Ciuin has finished school for the year and she’s starting a new novel. She got an A in Creative Writing. Also, or reasons which cannot be discussed here, she received a generous out-of-court settlement from Adventureland–no livestock was harmed.
