Good morning. Yesterday was a bit of a garbage fire, wasn’t it? That’s okay. Tomorrow has arrived.
And we have books! Books are great. Look at these books. And the random tins of Pokemon cards, as well as the two Pop Funko figures of Chandra from Magic the Gathering and Diane from Bojack Horseman, and a holiday ornament left out from Christmas with a picture of my son in it.

Thanks for reading,
