Mostly Monday

Well hello there!

Friday found me alone in the office with no urge to work. Quel surprise. So let's see if I can get this done!

Things have been horrible. Not personally, I'm just questioning my life choices, but then don't we all? But it's been a horrible world. All that I can say is that I hope you are safe, I hope you are making mind changing decisions, and I hope that we are all working to make the world a more inclusive place. It doesn't sound like enough, but it's what I have.

Onto the meat of the post:
