“It’s like Christmas!” my roommate exclaimed with mock excitement, as she dumped a veritable boatload of mail onto the table this past Friday night.

I don’t think I’m saying this properly, which probably means that I need to go to sleep, but even if I didn’t know who you were, I’d reblog your posts and follow your blog in a heartbeat. And encourage others to do the same.
