Or: The Second Annual Valentine's Cup No Quick takes Friday today – *gasp* – and I have a valid reason…apart from having been utterly butterly busy today. What is this mighty fine reason, Alex?

You know, that character in some film of a depression book by John Green that's out in Australia and the US, but not the UK yet... Like John … Continue reading Lifey-Wimey Things
