Posted on Posted in announcements, first they came, journal

Squawk woke me at 5am this morning (needing moral support to make it through a fart — we both survived physically unscathed, despite her fears to the contrary), and as I always do I checked my phone.

Especially since my local supermarket only started stocking Easter chocolate a week ago and they've elected not to stock the white one at all, even though it's clearly and obviously the best.
