How are things? Where have you been? What have you been listening to? What’s worth reading? Let’s chat. My son and I are home today watching, I suspect, Kung Fu Panda 1, 2, & 3 over and over again. Gary Oldman is a pretty amazing peacock, but I wonder if him seeing so many movies where the protagonist’s parents die is…

You were on the motherfucking list, Prince. You were supposed to live forever.
Well, the fucking wheels fell off. At the end of May, I will be moving out of my place and my now ex’s mother will be moving in. Oh, the joy’s the two of them will share.
This lemur demands all the scritches.
