I have watched Our Flag Means Death all the way through twice and I want to know: why can't media be this queer all the time?? Other media is so BORING by comparison!

January Wrap-Up: A good time??

I had...a surprisingly nice January? It wasn't all great. I came down with what I'm PRETTY sure was Omicron. Would not recommend. I spent most of the month, though, housesitting in Tacoma.

Top Ten DNFs of 2021: Surprise addendum
