My toenails are painted green and this is remarkably alluring, I think. I really want to listen to Meat Loaf but I can’t because I’m not playing the game that I play when I listen to Meat Loaf right now, but I will soon. I yelled at someone today and now I feel better. I don’t know why I’m doing this, but you should do it too, just so I’m not alone.
