Do you eat M&M's randomly, or do you sort them by color into equal groups, hastily eat the left-over candies to end that horrible broken-pattern dissonance, then eat one from each group in turn (always in the same order) until they're gone, the way sensible people do?

Every once in a while I see twitizens all a-twitter about something and because they assume everyone is in a froth about it I can only form a vague notion of what it might be. That's when I understand that ignorance truly is bliss.

Replying to @conorsen @bopinion
It wonโ€™t lift the working class, it will put more control in the hands of their employers. History shows it doesnโ€™t end well for anyone:

Book mail! "The Poet and the Flea" is a graphic novel featuring William Blake. (Coincidentally, @gegallas tells me her parents use to live on our street. Not our block, but pretty close.) I know what I'm reading in bed tonight!

Jane Austen's Mansfield Park but with alien artifacts and alien science packs.

I'm thinking of starting a #horror themed e-zine. My brain keeps trying to tell me something, but it's really muffled.

Anyway, I bought the domain name tinyfrightsDOTcom, so if I do this, "tiny frights" will be the name of the zine.

This messaging from universities that it's safe to gather in large classrooms but not at parties is clearly not landing very well. I think people are generally very tired of being told that the pandemic is over when it comes to labor but ongoing when it comes to leisure.
