I learned something about llamas, and more about electric fences than I ever need to know 🙂
I haven’t been raining negativity, bitterness and bile down on my gentle readers lately. And apparently, that has to stop.
It has been suggested to me by a devotee of WFTRSOTS (okay, ‘devotee’ might be phrasing it rather strongly, but there is forensic evidence that she pops by on occasion) that I should share with you some of the topics I’d just as soon never, ever, ever write about ever, ever again.

My friends are fun.
Some posts just are not meant to be written.

I’ve never been twitterpated about memes, although I have occasionally come up with some clever ones.
