 ;D

Currently I'm stuck in stage 3, just letting everything go for a bit to concentrate on stuff like, um, gaming or whatever, is nice... still hoping to one day get another few months off to where I can just all-out no-life for a while, completely neglecting personal care while being stuck in a fantasy world.  :D

Thanks, that made me smile.  At least I have a garden to work in and some places to walk...hope to get cycling again soon (partly so as not to resemble the fourth frame!).  It's hard; we're all stressed out.

Best,

"That wouldn't be believable. Well, not if you don't believe it" (Trick, 1999).

"You'd like me to be dumb and nothing more. Maybe you think that, but I don't. But that's how it should be" (Undertow, 2009).

A Netflix series called Merry Happy Whatever.

If you have Google Chrome, right click on an image, and among the actions offered is Google's image search, which identifies the image about 98% of the time. (Sometimes it just comes back with a generic answer like "man drinking from coffee cup.)  That's what I did for this.

If you don't have Chrome, do a search for "reverse image search with [your browser and OS]" to find out how.

Trying to figure out what he might be saying looking at the rose [as I can't see the title]:  1) "Ah, you are far inferior to the beauty of my love, but you must suffice as a mere token to her of my love for her"....or??   ;)
