Yes. Everyone hated it. Faster, please. Mo’ and betta. Privacy is the best. So this happened this week. I should have bought popcorn futures! Possibly. But would you invite them for tea? SMOD.

Some welcome redecorating. There’s some golfy-type thing going on in Georgia. New express lanes bring tolls back to GA 400. Pray for South Georgia. All of Georgia, really. Make it stop. Malware/botnet disabled worldwide before any trouble started. (Am I the only one disturbed with the GRU reference? Another Disney slip?) Does anyone want to
