    Wah- Capricorn is not horrifying. On the other hand, she is kind of sexy.

    Love the mushroom lights. I need to do that.

    The author sent me that Texts from Jane Eyre book to review. I haven’t had the chance to go all the way through it yet, but it seems delightful. I’ve seen Skellie elsewhere on the web, I’m glad to have the original source. They are much more social than I am as well.

    Sagittarius is a‚Ķhorse-centaur? It’s too meta for me, I’m done. Although, to be fair, wtf is a “sea-goat”, anyway? I mean, that image is basically just exactly what it says on the tin.

    Since I don’t recognize that monster, I’m just going to replace the “I love your silky skin” image with that of Buffalo Bill. Also, “You look like Cleopatra: I can see through your nose-hole into the back of your skull.”

    “I skull NY”. Me, too, buddy. Me, too.
