Facebook Russian Roulette

Want to play. Badly. Mao. MAO! MAO! MAO! (BLAM)

Happy Turkey Day

Here’s a Thanksviging-y Mep classic to celebrate your food coma.

Maybe, just maybe, there is a future for us.

Every once in a while, I’m reminded of why I love literature…and why, just maybe, the future isn’t as bleak as everyone seems to be fond of predicting these days.

Last night I frequented a local theater production of Slaughterhouse Five featuring the surprisingly versatile Lily Vonnegut.
